An airport security guard mans the entrance of the Vnukovo-3 Business Aviation Center at Moscow's Vnukovo airport, October 21, 2014Top Russian airport officials fell on their swords Thursday as four more employees were detained over the Moscow plane crash that killed the CEO of French oil giant Total. The driver of the snowplough that collided with Total boss Christophe de Margerie's plane as it was taking off from a Moscow airport late Monday was also ordered to be held for two months behind bars for further questioning. The new staff detained for questioning include a trainee air traffic controller who directed the doomed plane, her supervisor, the heads of the air traffic controllers at Vnukovo airport and runway cleaners. "The investigation suggests that these people did not respect the norms of flight security and ground operations, which led to the tragedy," said the powerful Investigative Committee in charge of the probe.

By Julia Fioretti and Jean-Baptiste Vey BRUSSELS (Reuters) - Germany and France both called for economic growth to be at the heart of the euro zone's budget strategy on Thursday but German Chancellor Angela Merkel warned against returning to the pre-crisis days of high spending to try to revive the economy. With the euro zone flirting with stagnation and deflation, the leaders of the bloc's two biggest economies put the emphasis on growth as they arrived for an EU summit in Brussels. At the centre of tensions are EU budget rules that force countries to control their public finances to win investor confidence. "We have had times in Europe with very high deficits and yet no growth, so we must learn from the past and I hope we will find a common solution." The European Commission, which acts as a budget policeman for the 18-country euro zone, is reviewing member states' draft budget plans to see if they are in line with EU budget rules.

By Steve Scherer ROME (Reuters) - The European Commission has asked Italy to explain why its draft budget for next year will breach debt-reduction goals it promised the European Union, a step that may lead to demands from Brussels for changes to the spending package. Italy's 2015 budget proposal showed a "significant deviation" from its previous plan for achieving a balanced budget in structural terms, or adjusted for the effects of the business cycle, according to a letter from incoming Jobs and Growth Commissioner Jyrki Katainen released on Thursday. Italian Prime Minister Matteo Renzi took a risk with Brussels last week when he set out 18 billion euros (14.20 billion British pounds) in tax cuts in next year's draft budget and pushed back a target date for achieving a structural balanced budget by a year to 2017.
