The boards of Renault and Nissan have approved equalizing the stake each automaker holds in the other, bringing a better balance in the French-Japanese alliance. Under the decision announced Monday, both companies will own 15% in the other. Up to now, Renault Group of France owned 43.4% of Nissan, while Japanese automaker Nissan Motor Co. owned 15% of Renault. The uneven shareholdings had been viewed at times as a source of conflict. Renault Chairman Jean Dominique Senard announced the change in a news conference in London. The long speculated move was announced a week ago. The shares equivalent to a 28.4% stake will be transferred to a French trust.

A confidential U.N. report into the alleged missteps by senior World Health Organization staffers in how they handled a sexual misconduct case during an Ebola outbreak in Congo found their response didn't violate the agency’s policies because of what some officials described as a “loophole.”  The report was submitted to WHO last month and wasn't released publicly. It was obtained by the Associated Press. WHO hasn’t publicly described the report’s contents. The U.N. investigation comes after a 2021 review by an independent commission found three WHO managers fumbled a sexual misconduct case first reported by the AP earlier that year. The case involved a U.N. health agency doctor signing a contract to buy land for a young woman he reportedly impregnated.
