    FILE - In this Sunday July 10, 2011 file photo anti-government protester holds a 20th February Flag as police officers looks on during a rally organized by the 20th February, the Moroccan Arab Spring movement in Rabat, Morocco. Morocco's pro-democracy February 20th movement spearheaded Morocco's version of the Arab Spring and sent the centuries-old monarchy scrambling to reform. Now, a year after its birth, the youth-led group appears to have lost its way. Like the Occupy movements in the United States, Morocco's pro-democracy groups now need to find out if there is life after protesting. On Sunday Feb. 19, 2012, the Feb. 20 movement will try with country-wide anniversary demonstrations to rekindle some of the fire that at its peak in March put 800,000 people from all walks of life on the streets calling for an end to corruption, greater democracy and social justice.

    File photo of workers on the assembly line of a Swedish truck maker Scania AB plant in Sao Bernardo do Campo September 15, 2010 . Truck maker Scania is preparing for an uncertain year by cutting more staff and delaying investments after truck orders softened in the second half of 2011 and its quarterly earnings undershot. "The outlook for 2012 is difficult to assess, especially in Europe in light of the economic policy problems in the euro zone," Chief Executive Leif Ostling said in a statement February 1, 2012. Like other truck makers, Scania saw a boom in demand in 2010 and early 2011 as the global economy picked up. But the European debt crisis, the Arab Spring and a shift to new engines in Brazil hit its performance in the latter part of last year.
