Frustrations are mounting in Mississippi’s largest city, more than two weeks since winter storms and freezing weather ravaged the city’s water system — knocking out water for drinking and making it impossible for many to even flush their toilets. “I pray it comes back on,” Jackson resident Nita Smith said.

General Motors Co said on Wednesday it was further extending production cuts at three North American plants and adding a fourth to the list of factories hit by the global semiconductor chip shortage. The extended cuts do not change GM's forecast last month that the shortage could shave up to $2 billion from this year's earnings. GM Chief Financial Officer Paul Jacobson subsequently said chip supplies should return to normal rates by the second half of the year and he was confident the profit hit would not worsen.

(Bloomberg) -- European Central Bank policy makers see no need for drastic action to combat rising bond yields, believing the risk to the economy is manageable with verbal interventions and the flexibility of their asset-purchase program, according to officials familiar with internal discussions.While multiple Governing Council members have spoken out to say that higher yields may be unwarranted and could undermine the euro zone as it struggles with extended pandemic lockdowns, there is no sense of panic, the officials said.A step such as expanding the overall size of their 1.85 trillion-euro ($2.24 trillion) emergency bond-buying program is currently unnecessary, they said. They didn’t say whether the pace of purchases has been stepped up in recent days, using the much-touted flexibility of the tool.One official noted that yields fell on Monday after some policy makers said the ECB would react against unwarranted increases.An ECB spokesman declined to comment.“The size of the movements is not such that this is a particularly worrisome development,” Bundesbank President Jens Weidmann said in a Bloomberg TV interview on Wednesday. “At the end of the day we want to preserve favorable financing conditions for the non-financial sector. That’s not just looking at financing costs for governments. It’s a much broader picture we need to look at.”He added that the ECB is ready to adjust the pace of asset purchases if needed, and that its pandemic program has enough flexibility to react to any unwarranted market moves.Read more: ECB’s Weidmann Says Size of Yield Increases Not Too WorryingBank of Spain Governor Pablo Hernandez de Cos said at a separate event that rising yields may reflect market expectations of an earlier start to unwinding monetary stimulus, and that “avoiding premature increases in nominal interest rates” is essential.German bonds fell on Wednesday, led by the longest-dated debt, pushing 10-year yields up as much as four basis points to minus 0.31%, before drawing back. The euro climbed 0.1%, before reversing gains to trade 0.2% lower at $1.2063.What Bloomberg Economics Says...“It may take more concrete action to contain global spillovers to euro-area borrowing costs. In our view, the ECB should be increasing the pace of its Pandemic Emergency Purchase Program this week.”Jamie Rush, David Powell and Maeva Cousin. To read their report, click hereECB officials meet to set policy next week, and have been rolling out public appearances before their weeklong quiet period starts this Thursday. Executive Board member Fabio Panetta spoke on Tuesday, saying the jump in government-bond yields “is unwelcome and must be resisted.” He also said it is “not too late” to act.A day earlier, French Governing Council member Francois Villeroy de Galhau said that the ECB “can and must react” to any unwarranted moves threatening to undermine the economy. Vice President Luis de Guindos argued that it’s important to understand why bond yields have risen, and said officials “have the flexibility that is needed in order to react.”More policy makers are scheduled to speak on Wednesday, including Guindos and Executive Board member Isabel Schnabel.Yields are being pushed up by a global sell-off of longer-term government bonds originating in the U.S. where prospects of another dose of massive fiscal stimulus are bolstering the economy. In Europe, Greek and Italian 10-year yields led the charge, climbing about 20 basis points in the past two weeks.Debt from the region’s core was also ensnared, with benchmark German yields climbing to levels last seen in March 2020 and French yields turning positive for the first time since June.Higher government bond yields pose a problem for the euro area because they are used by banks as a reference point for lending. The region’s recovery is already expected to be slower than that of many other advanced economies, in part due to its slow vaccine roll-out, and higher borrowing costs could further damp momentum.Fire FightingFigures published this week surprised investors by showing that the central bank actually slowed purchasing last week, despite President Christine Lagarde saying policy makers are “closely monitoring” the rise in nominal bond yields.Those figures don’t reflect orders made Thursday and Friday, as transactions take a couple of days to settle and show up in the central bank’s accounts. This week’s purchasing data will be published next Monday and Tuesday.Investors have been closely watching for any signs of market intervention by the ECB. Vincent Juvyns, a strategist at JPMorgan Asset Management, said on Bloomberg radio that in contrast to the U.S., where the economy is being boosted by massive stimulus, “it is probably too early to allow rates to rise in Europe.”“I would hope and expect that the ECB would be a bit fire-fighting with additional buying in the coming weeks and months,” he said.(Updates with Weidmann interview starting in sixth paragraph.)For more articles like this, please visit us at bloomberg.comSubscribe now to stay ahead with the most trusted business news source.©2021 Bloomberg L.P.

Jihadist groups in the nearby Sahel region, which recruit and train their followers online, represent Morocco's biggest militant threat, the head of its counterterrorism agency said. Although Morocco has had only one major attack over the past decade - the 2018 killing of two Scandinavian tourists - its location "makes it a target for the Sahel groups" said Haboub Cherkaoui. "The terrorist threat persists as long as there are groups that recruit and train their followers online including Islamic State in the greater Sahara," he told Reuters in an interview.
