South Korea's delivery workers have fallen into what they call a "legal blind spot" and say it's a deadly place to be as the novel coronavirus drives an unprecedented boom in online business. Labour rights have made huge progress in South Korea over the past couple of decades but the couriers say they have seen little benefit. Parcel shipments increased some 12% a year in South Korea from 2004 as online shipping grew, then surged 23% from February to October this year, compared with the same period last year, as the pandemic hit, according to government data.
(Bloomberg) -- Phoenix Group Holdings Plc, Europe’s biggest life-insurance consolidator, said it’s weighing options for its international operations in a potential deal that would focus the company more on the U.K.“In light of recent expressions of interest from third parties for the European business, Phoenix confirms that it is assessing a range of strategic options to maximize value for shareholders,” the company said in a Tuesday statement, confirming an earlier Bloomberg News report.Phoenix is working with Fenchurch Advisory Partners LLP to gauge interest in its business in markets including Ireland and Germany, people familiar with the matter said. The potential sale could fetch as much as 650 million euros ($774 million), the people said, asking not to be identified because the information is private.London-based Phoenix said in its statement that there’s no certainty of a deal. A representative for Fenchurch declined to comment.Shares of Phoenix rose as much as 1.1% in London trading Tuesday, extending the previous day’s gains and giving the company a market value of about 7.9 billion pounds ($10.5 billion).Phoenix, which buys portfolios of old policies from legacy insurers, managed about 324 billion pounds of assets at the end of June, according to its website. Last year, it acquired Swiss Re AG’s ReAssure Group Plc unit for 3.25 billion pounds, one of the year’s largest insurance deals globally.In Europe, Phoenix competes with other consolidators including Germany’s Frankfurter Leben Holding GmbH, Cinven-owned Viridium Group GmbH and Apollo Global Management Inc.’s Athora Holding Ltd.

(Bloomberg) -- Saudi Aramco needed about 40 minutes to put out the fire caused by a missile strike on a fuel depot in the Red Sea city of Jeddah, with evidence pointing to a sophisticated attack on Saudi Arabia’s energy infrastructure.No one was hurt in Monday’s explosion or blaze, and supplies from the facility in the kingdom’s second-biggest city were not interrupted, an Aramco official said Tuesday, asking not to be identified due to company policy.The attack, for which Houthi rebels in neighboring Yemen claimed responsibility, was “similar” to the one on Aramco’s Abqaiq oil-processing plant and Khurais field in September 2019, the official said. Then, missiles and armed drones temporarily knocked out about half of Saudi Arabia’s oil-production capacity and briefly caused crude prices to soar.Aramco is still assessing the extent of the damage from Monday’s strike, which tore a hole measuring roughly two square meters in a diesel storage tank containing about 480,000 barrels, the official said. The depot has 13 tanks holding diesel, gasoline and jet fuel for the domestic market. Aramco was distributing products again three hours afterward, the official said. The Houthis have been fighting Yemen’s United Nations-backed government in a civil war since 2015, when a Saudi-led coalition intervened in an effort to roll back the rebels’ gains. The Houthis frequently fire missiles into Saudi Arabia, some of which are intercepted. They used a Quds 2 rocket on Monday, their spokesman, Yahya Saree, said in a statement.Saudi Arabia condemned the strike, saying “terrorist and sabotage acts committed against vital installations target the security and stability of energy supplies to the world,” the official Saudi Press Agency reported.No oil products were lost as a result of the attack, said Fahad Al Torayf, an Energy Ministry spokesman. The damaged tank should be repaired in weeks, he said.The missile landed a few miles from Jeddah’s main airport and would’ve traveled at least 370 miles (595 kilometers) if fired from Yemen, suggesting a high degree of expertise on the part of the Houthis.The Houthis, a Shiite group, claimed responsibility for the attacks on Abqaiq and Khurais last year. The UN concluded that those missiles probably came from Iran, which backs the Houthis.Human rights groups have documented repeated cases of bombings by Saudi-led forces of civilian targets in Yemen, including schools and hospitals. The war there has caused what the UN described in 2018 as the world’s worst man-made humanitarian crisis.(Updates with Energy Ministry comment in seventh paragraph.)For more articles like this, please visit us at bloomberg.comSubscribe now to stay ahead with the most trusted business news source.©2020 Bloomberg L.P.
