GAZA - The two main Palestinian factions announced an agreement on Wednesday to heal a seven-year schism and form a unity government within five weeks that would prepare for Palestinian elections six months later. The two groups - the Palestine Liberation Organization, which runs the Palestinian Authority in the West Bank, and Hamas, the militant Islamist group that dominates the Gaza Strip - have reached similar accords before that were never carried out. But the latest deal comes as the fragile American-brokered peace efforts between the Palestinians and Israel are approaching an April 29 deadline without a resolution in sight.   more...

MOSCOW - Russia continued Wednesday to ratchet up pressure on the government in Kiev, warning that events in eastern Ukraine could prompt a military response and again accusing the United States of directing events there. "If we are attacked, we would certainly respond," Sergey V. Lavrov, the Russian foreign minister, said in an interview with the Kremlin's satellite news network, Russia Today, or RT. The network's website published a short excerpt from the interview, which was scheduled to be broadcast later Wednesday.   more...

TOKYO - President Obama arrived here on Wednesday evening to begin a four-country tour of Asia, after stopping to survey the devastation left by last month's deadly mudslide in Washington State. It was a fitting start, given that everywhere on this trip, he will witness the lingering fallout of other disasters, natural and man-made. From South Korea, where public outrage is surging in the wake of a ferry accident that has claimed the lives of dozens of teenagers, to Malaysia, where the authorities face harsh scrutiny over their handling of the vanished Malaysian jetliner, Mr. Obama will encounter leaders under pressure from angry, often grief-stricken constituents.   more...

TAIPEI, Taiwan - A naval code of conduct approved by more than 20 nations around the Pacific, including China, Japan and the United States, could reduce the risk of accidental encounters spiraling into conflict, experts said. But Beijing's firm rejection Wednesday of President Obama's comments about islands claimed by both China and Japan underscored the maritime tensions that continue to trouble Asia. The Code for Unplanned Encounters at Sea was endorsed Tuesday by naval officials from the United States, China and Japan and other states at a symposium in the northeastern Chinese port city of Qingdao, China's state-run Xinhua news service reported.   more...

JINDO, South Korea - "I know you are cold, hungry, scared, hurt down there," said one of the well-wishers' notes stuck on a rescuers' tent on a pier on this island. "My dear, the rope of life is coming your way." Such messages sounded more forlorn than hopeful on Wednesday, as divers searching the ferry that sank a week earlier in waters off southeast South Korea brought out scores of bodies, nearly all of them high school students, but reported no sign of life inside. With hopes of finding more survivors all but gone, some families, as well as the nation, on Wednesday began bidding farewell to the students whose bodies have been recovered.   more...

AirphotosLIVE.com Good Wednesday morning to you. About that balloon ... This week, a big white balloon appeared over the city. First on the Lower East Side, then uptown, where 57th Street meets the East River. Residents were told it was photographing potential views, for architects and real estate developers. We decided to learn more. The balloon is called an aerostat, or a tethered balloon. Its owners call it Lucy, after its seamstress. It has gone as high as 1,376 feet - the height of what became One World Trade Center's observation deck.   more...

JINDO, South Korea - As Navy divers recovered the bodies of dozens of teenagers drowned waiting for a rescue of their doomed ferry, South Korea has begun a national bout of hand-wringing over the country's tendency to overlook safety precautions in its quest for economic success. With a mounting list of errors that appeared to have contributed to the disaster, maritime experts, the news media and regular citizens venting their anger on social media have begun to question what they describe as inadequate safety precautions and often lax regulation of businesses.   more...
