UN takes charge of Central African Republic peacekeeping force

BANGUI (Reuters) - The United Nations on Monday took over a peacekeeping mission in the Central African Republic previously run by the African Union, a move that rights groups said must lead to more action to protect civilians from attack. The former French colony has been paralysed by violence for nearly two years and is now deeply divided, with its north mostly occupied by mainly Muslim Seleka rebels who seized power nationally last year but were forced to step down in January. #facebook #China #Japan #Technology #France #Arabic #Middle East #Russia #Italy #United Kingdom #Mexico #opinion

Murderer in non-capital punishment Belgium granted request to die

BRUSSELS (Reuters) - A Belgian murderer and rapist serving a life sentence is to be allowed to have doctors end his life following a ground-breaking ruling under laws in Belgium permitting people to request euthanasia. Frank Van Den Bleeken had argued that he had no prospect of release since he could not overcome his violent sexual impulses and so he wanted to exercise his right to medically assisted suicide in order to end years of mental anguish. "Over recent years, he has been seen by several doctors and psychologists and their conclusion is that he is suffering, and suffering unbearably," his lawyer, Jos Vander Velpen, told state broadcaster VRT #United States #Japan #Technology #France #Arabic #markets #Argentina #United Kingdom #Belgium
