FILE - In this Aug. 7, 2014 file photo Head of the European Central Bank, ECB, Mario Draghi attends a news conference in Frankfurt, Germany. European Central Bank President Mario Draghi says there’s room for governments to dial back austerity, within limits. The ECB is looking at more stimulus, such as  pumping new money into the economy by purchasing bonds. But such central bank stimulus can’t do it all alone. “It would be helpful for the overall stance of policy if fiscal policy could play a greater role alongside monetary policy, and I believe there is scope for this,” he said in a speech last week at a U.S. Federal Reserve conference at Jackson Hole, Wyoming.

FILE - In this Saturday, Aug. 2, 2014 file photo, Palestinians stand on the rubble of houses destroyed in an Israeli strike in Rafah, southern Gaza Strip. Amid fear that Hamas had captured an Israeli soldier, the Israeli military sealed off the Rafah area and began shelling on Aug. 1, 2014. By the end of the next day, 190 Palestinians were dead, according to a list of names compiled by two Gaza human rights groups. The suspected capture of the soldier turned out to be a false alarm and the Rafah operation is almost certain to be a focus of U.N. investigators and rights groups looking into possible war crimes because it highlights a key concern: The treatment of civilians.
