Bulgarian town bans full-face veils worn by some Roma Muslims | Reuters

SOFIA The central Bulgarian town of Pazardzhik banned the wearing of full-face veils in public on Wednesday in a move the local government said would prevent tension among communities and boost security. The ban, the first of its kind in the Balkan country, was backed from politicians across the political spectrum in the town of some 70,000 people, where wearing full-face veils had become common among some Muslim Roma women #Business #Islam #Europe #United Kingdom #Christianity #lifestyle

Fighting erupts in Nagorno-Karabakh, dozens of casualties reported | Reuters

BAKU/YEREVAN A new wave of fighting broke out in the disputed Nagorno-Karabakh region on Saturday, killing at least a dozen servicemen and drawing international calls for an immediate ceasefire to stop violence spreading in the South Caucasus. Nagorno-Karabakh, which lies inside Azerbaijan but is controlled by ethnic Armenians, has run its own affairs with heavy military and financial backing from Armenia since a separatist war ended in 1994. The Azeri defence ministry said on Saturday the army had "liberated strategic heights and settlements" in the region #United States #Business #Europe #Christianity #fighting

Vatican cardinal denies attempts to cover up child sex abuse in church | Reuters

ROME/SYDNEY A high-ranking Vatican official on Wednesday denied trying to bribe an Australian man who was sexually abused as a child by a Roman Catholic priest to ensure his silence in a bid to protect the church. Cardinal George Pell, the Vatican's treasurer, was giving evidence via video link from Rome for the fourth consecutive day to Australia's Royal Commission into Institutional Response to Child Sexual Abuse. Given Pell's high rank within the church, his grilling over cases involving hundreds of children that occurred decades ago in Australia has taken on wider implications about the accountability of church leaders #United States #Australia #Middle East #Crime #Christianity #article
