Kosovo dissolves parliament to hold an early election

Aug 23, 2019

PRISTINA, Kosovo — Kosovo's parliament was dissolved Thursday, opening the way to the country's president to set the date for an early general election. The 120-seat Parliament held an extraordinary session Thursday, deciding by 89 votes in favor of ending the parliament. There was one vote against and two people abstained. In July, Prime Minister Ramush Haradinaj resigned before being questioned by a Hague-based court investigating crimes against ethnic Serbs during and after the country's 1998-99 war. Haradinaj since then has acted in a caretaker prime minister role. President Hashim Thaci is expected to set a date for the vote,...

Migrants exit rescue ship in Italy after 19-day standoff

Aug 23, 2019

MILAN — More than 80 people were being evacuated from a migrant rescue ship on Tuesday, capping a drama that saw 15 passengers jump into the sea to escape deteriorating conditions aboard and spurred Spain to dispatch a naval ship in a bid to end a weekslong humanitarian crisis with Italy. Sicilian prosecutor Luigi Patronaggio ordered the seizure of the ship off Italy's southernmost island of Lampedusa — and the immediate evacuation of its passengers — after he boarded the vessel and met with port authorities as part of an investigation into possible kidnapping charges resulting from the refusal of...

Charity suggests plane could resolve migrant boat standoff

Aug 23, 2019

ROME — Italy's fierce battle over immigration raged on Monday, with fights and panic attacks reported among migrants who have been stranded on a rescue ship for up to 18 days at sea. While Italy's interior minister stuck to his refusal to let the Open Arms rescue ship dock on the Italian island of Lampedusa, just a few hundred meters (yards) away from where it was anchored, the charity countered by suggesting that a plane be chartered to fly the 107 migrants left on the boat to Spain. For nearly a week, Lampedusa has been frustratingly in sight of the...

The Latest: Migrant group request urgent docking in Italy

Aug 23, 2019

ROME — The Latest on migration issues in Europe (all times local): 7:05 p.m. A humanitarian group has urgently requested permission from Italy to enter Lampedusa's port so that more than 100 migrants still aboard a rescue boat after nearly three weeks can disembark. Italy's anti-migrant interior minister, Matteo Salvini, has so far refused to let the boat dock. The Open Arms group says that the psychological and physical conditions of the 107 migrants are "at risk." The Spanish charity said in a tweet that "if the worst happens, Europe and Salvini will be responsible." Spain has offered a port...

Shard reveals how Cyprus' ancient kingdoms managed economy

Aug 23, 2019

NICOSIA, Cyprus — The discovery of a small clay shard inscribed with a partial inventory of goods at a 2,500-year-old citadel suggests that Cyprus' ancient city states "more than likely" managed their economies using a homegrown system, not an imported one, an archaeologist said Wednesday. University of Cyprus Professor Maria Iacovou told The Associated that the recent discovery at the ancient kingdom of Paphos on Cyprus' southwestern coast refutes the notion that Cypriot city states managed their economies based on systems brought over from foreign kingdoms, like those of neighboring Phoenician city states. The inscription on the shard was in...
