U.S. employers probably added more workers to payrolls in March than the 175,000 a month earlier as the jobless rate fell.
Gazprombank NGS, a unit of Gazprom OAO, won a license to explore for uranium in the region of Agadez in northern Niger, the government said in a statement.
President Vladimir Putin arrived in Austria after asking Russian lawmakers to revoke his authority to use force in Ukraine, underscoring a diplomatic drive that may deter European efforts to tighten sanctions on Russia.
