By Michelle Nichols UNITED NATIONS (Reuters) - Israel and the Palestinians have expressed "serious interest" in a 24-hour truce in the Gaza conflict, but a deal has yet to be reached, U.N. Secretary-General Ban Ki-moon said on Monday, as he raised concerns about the proportionality of Israel's military operation. Israel eased its Gaza offensive and Palestinian rocket fire from the enclave declined on Monday, as international pressure mounted to end the 21-day conflict in which more than 1,000 people, mostly civilians and predominantly in Gaza, have been killed. ...

Lloyds Banking Group said it condemned the actions of those reponsible for rates-riggingBritain's Lloyds Banking Group said Monday it will pay £218 million in fines to British and US regulators, becoming the latest global lender to be fined for rigging inter-bank lending rates. The punishment, worth $370 million or 276 million euros, is the latest twist in the long-running Libor scandal that has badly tarnished the reputation of London as a financial centre. Lloyds's settlement is the seventh joint penalty handed out by the US and Britain as part of a long-running probe into attempts to manipulate benchmarks that set rates for trillions of dollars of financial transactions. Lloyds Banking Group said in its statement "it has reached settlements totalling £218 million" regarding its submissions to the British Bankers' Association (BBA) London Interbank Offered Rate (Libor) and Sterling Repo Rate.

New home is being built next to a home with a for sale sign on a street in Vienna, on the morning the National Association of Realtors issues its Pending Home Sales for February report, in VirginiaBy Moriah Costa WASHINGTON (Reuters) - Contracts to buy previously-owned U.S. homes unexpectedly fell in June, but the data did little to change perceptions the housing sector was gradually recovering after slumping in late 2013. Another report on Monday showed services sector activity held at a 4-1/2 year-high in July, a sign of economic momentum early in the third quarter. The National Association of Realtors (NAR) said its Pending Home Sales Index, based on contracts signed last month, fell 1.1 percent to 102.7. "The June pullback could be seen largely as a correction in a broadly improving trend, with housing data remaining somewhat choppy as the sector gradually continues to recover," said Gennadiy Goldberg, an economist at TD Securities in New York.
