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 constitutional changes were endorsed by 82 deputies in the 120-seat parliament. #Business #United States #Technology #United Kingdom #Netherlands

Israel to allow harsher interrogations of Jewish militant suspects| Reuters

JERUSALEM Israel will allow harsher interrogations of suspected Jewish militants, with methods once reserved for Palestinian detainees, after a deadly West Bank attack blamed on ultra-nationalists, a minister said on Monday. The announcement came a day after the government said it would start detaining citizens suspected of political violence against Palestinians without trial, another practice previously used only on Palestinian suspects.
