Troubled German lender Deutsche Bank reported Thursday a surprise 256-million-euro ($279 million) profit in the third quarter, compared with a loss of more than six billion in the same period last year.

European Parliament to award Sakharov prize
Exiled Turkish journalist Can Dundar, Crimean Tatar activist Mustafa Dzhemilev and two Yazidi victims of the Islamic State group have been shortlisted for the European Parliament's prestigious Sakharov human rights prize to be announced Thursday. Named after the dissident Soviet scientist Andrei Sakharov, who died in 1989, the prize is awarded every year to honour individuals who combat intolerance, fanaticism and oppression, often falling foul of their governments as a result. Last year, the Parliament awarded the prize to Saudi Arabian blogger Raif Badawi, jailed for "insulting" Islam.
