Bolivia’s interim president has asked Congress to approve new elections as violence rages following the resignation of Evo Morales.
However, Jeanine Áñez did not set a date for the poll.
Mr Morales resigned on 10 November and later sought asylum in Mexico after facing claims of electoral fraud. The death toll since October’s disputed general election has risen to 32 as clashes continue between supporters of Mr Morales and security forces.
Mr Morales accused security forces of committing “genocide” against his indigenous supporters, and requested assistance from the international community. His supporters have been blocking main roads linking the capital La Paz and other major cities, causing widespread disruption across the country.
Ms Áñez said she hoped the proposal – which also seeks the annulment of the original ballot and the formation of a new election tribunal – would help generate “a national consensus”.
A teenage neo-Nazi who wrote about an “inevitable race war” in his diary and identified a series of possible targets has been convicted of preparing terrorist acts.
The 16-year-old boy listed the locations from his home city of Durham in his “guerrilla warfare” manual. He also described himself as a “natural sadist”, Manchester Crown Court heard.
The boy is the youngest person to be convicted of planning a terrorist attack in the UK.
A jury found the boy, who cannot be named for legal reasons, guilty of preparation of terrorist acts between October 2017 and March this year. He was also convicted of disseminating a terrorist publication, possessing an article for a purpose connected to terrorism and three counts of possessing documents useful to someone preparing acts of terrorism.
He was remanded in custody and will be sentenced on 7 January.
Prosecutors in Sweden have dropped an investigation into a rape allegation made against Wikileaks co-founder Julian Assange in 2010.
Assange, who denies the accusation, has avoided extradition to Sweden for seven years after seeking refuge at the Ecuadorean embassy in London in 2012. The 48-year-old Australian was evicted in April and sentenced to 50 weeks in jail for breaching his bail conditions.
He is currently being held at Belmarsh prison in London.
The Swedish investigation had been shelved in 2017 but was re-opened earlier this year following his eviction from the embassy.
Separately, the US is seeking Assange’s extradition from the UK over his alleged role in the release of classified military and diplomatic material by Wikileaks in 2010. Deputy Director of Public Prosecution Eva-Marie Persson took the decision to “discontinue the investigation regarding Julian Assange”, the Swedish Prosecution Authority said. “The reason for this decision is that the evidence has weakened considerably due to the long period of time that has elapsed since the events in question,” it added.
Three children in eastern Germany have fished rusty World War Two shells and bullets out of a pond using a powerful magnet, without injuring themselves.
They called police when they made their discovery near the town of Ohrdruf.
Police cordoned off the area, urging the public to report any such finds immediately and leave the munitions alone. It is not clear why the ammunition had been dumped in the pond.
Unexploded WW2 bombs are often found in Germany, prompting mass evacuations.
Germany was littered with explosives after the war because of the intensive air raids by British, US and Soviet bombers. Bomb disposal experts have to deal with the finds, as an old detonator can set off a bomb by itself. The discoveries are often made at construction sites.
The International Criminal Court could open its first investigation into the British military following a programme about alleged war crimes.
Panorama found evidence the state had covered up killings of civilians by UK troops in Iraq and Afghanistan. The ICC said it took the findings very seriously. The MoD has said the allegations are unsubstantiated. The MoD said it had co-operated fully with the ICC and saw no justification for further interventions by the court.
Prime Minister Boris Johnson’s spokesman said the allegations against the MoD are “untrue”.
A formal investigation by the ICC, based in The Hague in the Netherlands, would be the first time it has taken action against any UK nationals for war crimes. The ICC’s Office of Prosecutor said it would “independently assess” the findings of Panorama, which could be “highly relevant” to their decision whether to open a landmark investigation into the UK.
The court has previously concluded there is credible evidence that British troops committed war crimes in Iraq.
