ASSOCIATED PRESS
ALGIERS, Algeria, July 24: An Air Algerie flight carrying 116 people from Burkina Faso to Algeria´s capital disappeared from radar early Thursday over northern Mali and "probably crashed," according to the plane´s owner and government officials in France and Burkina Faso.

Air navigation services lost track of the MD-83 about 50 minutes after takeoff from Ouagadougou, the capital of Burkina Faso, at 0155 GMT (9:55 p.m. EDT Wednesday), the official Algerian news agency APS said. [More]

  Intangible Transactions  
  BY SEWA BHATTARAI  
 
It’s common for informal businesses to sprout up around busy places.
         Most official locations witness a fair number of them.

You go to the Department of Transport Management to fill the form to obtain a driving license. You don’t even have to reach the office, for outside there are rows and rows of makeshift stalls – a table, a chair, and a large umbrella over the open sky—where forms are sold. Not just that, but the people at the stalls also help you fill the forms: for Rs. 50 each.

The assistance continues as you work through the process of getting a license. After you give your written examination, the results are pasted on the walls of the premises, but only after several hours. For a small fee of Rs. 30, helpers will be ready to look up the number for you and give you a call. “You may pay us Rs.30, but you save petrol worth Rs. 60,” says Maya Chhetri*, 30, who has a stall outside the premises and often provides this service.
