Kosovo votes for new war crimes court| Reuters

PRISTINA Kosovo's parliament voted to change the constitution on Monday and create a war crimes court, which the West wants to try ethnic Albanian former guerrillas for alleged war crimes including organ harvesting. The vote was held just one month after parliament first tried to approve the creation of the court, seen by many Kosovo Albanians as an attempt to tarnish their 1998-99 guerrilla war against Serbian rule. The constitutional changes were endorsed by 82 deputies in the 120-seat parliament #Technology #Europe #Crime #Argentina #Floods #Netherlands

Libya warns against diseases in Benghazi as meat rots in closed port| Reuters

BENGHAZI, Libya Libyan authorities warned on Monday that diseases might break out in the eastern city of Benghazi due to imported meat left rotting for months in containers at the city's closed commercial port. Libya's second-largest city has been a war zone for over a year with forces loyal to the official government based in the east fighting Islamist groups, part of chaos in the oil producer four years after the ousting of Muammar Gaddafi. Imported meat, vegetables and dairy products have been stored in containers in the port since it closed in November when fighting reached the central area #United States #science #Africa #Floods #Latin America

Brain training app could help people with schizophrenia | Reuters

LONDON A "brain training" iPad game developed in Britain may improve the memory of patients with schizophrenia, helping them in their daily lives at home and at work, researchers said on Monday. Scientists at Cambridge University said tests on a small number of patients who played the game over four weeks found they had improvements in memory and learning. The game, "Wizard", is designed to help so-called episodic memory -- the type of memory needed to remember where you left your keys several hours ago, or to remember a few hours later where you parked your car in a multi-storey car park #Middle East #markets #Argentina #Floods #Entertainment
