A job seeker meets with a prospective employer at a career fair in New York CityBy Lucia Mutikani WASHINGTON (Reuters) - The number of Americans filing new claims for unemployment benefits rose last week, but the underlying trend pointed to a continuing strengthening of labor market conditions. Other data on Thursday suggested a long-awaited acceleration in wage growth was imminent, with labor costs recording their largest increase in more than 5-1/2 years in the second quarter. Initial claims for state unemployment benefits increased 23,000 to a seasonally adjusted 302,000 for the week ended July 26, the Labor Department said. "Unemployment claims have come down a lot as of late and suggest that labor market conditions continue to improve," said Yelena Shulyatyeva, an economist at BNP Paribas in New York.

A sign is displayed in an unmarked Serious Fraud Office vehicle parked outside a building, in Mayfair, central LondonBy Kirstin Ridley LONDON (Reuters) - Britain's Serious Fraud Office has averted a 300 million-pound damages claim over its botched investigation into the Tchenguiz brothers, securing a second out-of-court settlement and closing an embarrassing chapter in its history. Property barons Robert and Vincent Tchenguiz, renowned for their champagne-fuelled parties and super yachts, sued the agency over dawn raids on their homes and offices and their high-profile arrests in March 2011 in a case linked to the 2008 collapse of Iceland's Kaupthing bank. David Green, who took over as head of the agency one month later, has secured a 4.5 million-pound deal with the brothers, excluding hefty legal costs. The deal averts an October civil trial and further public airing of the SFO's handling of a case that has already been slated as "incompetent" by a senior judge.
