    NEW YORK (Reuters) - Renowned investor George Soros said on Friday the world financial system has effectively disintegrated, adding that there is yet no prospect of a near-term resolution to the crisis.

    Markets dive as world economy reels from the financial crisis

    World stock markets have suffered yet another day of dramatic sell-offs, with share prices in the UK plunging more than 5 per cent after a slew of dire economic reports and more turmoil in banking and financial services. The FTSE 100 index fell 5.33 per cent to close at 3,626 last night, the lowest level since March 2003, when the UK was on the verge of war in Iraq. There were similar slumps across Europe, where share prices plunged by at least 3 per cent in markets including France, Germany and Spain. The falls in Europe followed corrections across Asian stock markets, with the Japanese Nikkei declining by 3.8 per cent. There was no respite in America either, where the Dow Jones shed 299.6, or 4.2 per cent, to 6,763.3 – its first close below 7,000 since 1997. The S&P fell below 700 for the first time since October 1996, before closing down 4.7 per cent at 700.8.

    Lacking Fuel, Tajikistan Slides Into Darkness

    The poorest of all the ex-Soviet Central Asian states with a population of 7.5 million, Tajikistan is in the midst of a massive energy crisis that has caused chronic shortages even in the capital Dushanbe. The collapse of Soviet-era infrastructure, a dispute with neighbouring Uzbekistan and lack of investment in the energy sector after independence have paralyzed the country's electricity grid.​
