As Mark Bourrie notes on his Facebook site, if you scroll down to the bottom of this piece you notice: (Reporting by Aftab Ahmed in Bangalore and Allison Martell in Toronto; Editing by Frank McGurty).
Which is to say that Reuters has outsourced some of their reporting. One of Mark's friends makes an interesting comment:
Some California papers have been outsourcing reporting for about a decade now - since broadband - having Indian reporters cover things like city council meetings via webcams.
On a related note, a number of years back there was an attempt made by several large U.S. law firms to offshore their grunt work. A lawyer friend has told me that this has not generally become a trend, however, because crafting legal documents in English requires a precision of language not usually possessed by natives of India or wherever the job was typically farmed out to.
