Serbian capital, Belgrade. Karadzic was heavily disguised by a white beard, long

hair and spectacles, living under a false identity as a “spiritual healer.”

Karadzic is the highest-ranking political figure to have been brought to justice over the bitter ethnic conflicts of the 1990s.

Wednesday’s judgement was handed down by the UN’s international residual mechanism for cr

iminal tribunals, which deals with cases left over from the now dissolved courts for the former Yugoslavia and Rwanda.

In November 2017 the court also sentenced former Bosnian Serb army leader Ratko Mladi

c to life in prison after finding him guilty of genocide for atrocities committed during the Bosnian war from 1992 to 1995.

Mladic was charged with two counts of genocide and nine crim

es against humanity and war crimes for his role in the conflict in the former Yugoslavia fro

m 1992 to 1995, during which 100,000 people were killed and another 2.2 million displaced.

approaching a European Council summit where thebehavior of

the EU can’t easily be predicted.

The difficulty for the EU is that, long or short, any delay comes with complications. And this is where opinions in European capitals start to diverge.

If the UK hasn’t left the EU by May 22, it might have to take part in elections to the European Parli

amentary elections, which begin the following day. Not doing so could be a breach of the UK’s obligations as a

member state.And if that happens, there is a real concern in Brussels that hardline Euroskeptics could stand for elect

ion, in protest at Britain not yet having yet Brexited. They might find a receptive public, and in turn, join interesting new fr

iends in the European Parliament. Sound far fetched? An EU source recently told CNN of worries in Brussels that far-right figures like To

mmy Robinson could end up as Members of the European Parliament, with all the associated attention that brings.

So a short delay is the preferred option of many in Brussels, especially in the Parliament. But that brings its own set of issues. Fi

rst, there is no guarantee that by the end of it, the UK Parliament would have given a thumbs up to May’s deal. In reality, it cou

ld just mean a delay to a no-deal Brexit that almost everyone claims they want to avoid, but still remains the default legal position.

But Bercow ruled that, according to parliamentary proc

  edure, the government could not repeatedly put a motion before lawmakers if it had been previously rejected in the same session.

  May’s deal suffered a second, crushing defeat last week when it was rejected by 149 votes.

  ”What the government cannot legitimately do is resubmit to the House the same pr

oposition — or substantially the same proposition — as that of last week, which was

rejected by 149 votes,” Bercow said in an unannounced statement on Monday.

  Third time lucky for Theresa May’s Brexit vote?

  Bercow said that, in his view, the first two motions on May’s Brexit deal were sufficiently different not to have broken parliamentary convention.

  The speaker did not set out what tests the government would have to meet if it was to succ

essfully submit its deal for a third vote, saying only it would have to be “fundamentally different.”

  In response, a Downing Street spokesperson said, “We note the speaker’s statement. This is a statement that requires proper consideration.”

UK political commentators have speculated that chang

  es to the political declaration associated with the deal could be enough to meet the speaker’s requirements. It has even been suggested that the gover

nment could ask the Queen to prorogue Parliament and start a new session to get around his ruling.

  Solicitor General for England and Wales Robert Buckland told the BBC that “we’re

in a major constitutional crisis” and that Bercow’s ruling has “given us a lot to think about.”

  May already faced an uphill task to get her deal past parliament, requiring 75 MPs to chang

e their minds. In an effort to get her deal over the line, Cabinet ministers spent the weekend in talks with the No

rthern Irish Democratic Union Party, or DUP. The DUP’s 10 MPs, who prop up May’s minority government, ha

ve so far opposed the deal. It is thought that if they switch sides, Brexiteer Conservatives will follow.

  It seems unlikely the Prime Minister will attempt to hold a new

vote on her deal before a European Council summit in Brussels at the end of this week.

The day after the attack in Christchurch, Ardern wore a h

  ijab as she stood in the center of a room, surrounded by families desperate to hear words of reassurance. They were tired, worried and m

any were grieving loved ones presumed killed in the hail of bullets fired by a man who singled them out for their beliefs.

  Even before she said a word, Ardern’s simple decision to cover

her hair served to show families she respected them and wanted to ease their pain.

  ”People were quite surprised. I saw people’s faces when she was wearing the hijab — th

ere were smiles on their faces,” said Ahmed Khan, a survivor of the attack who lost his uncle at the Al Noor mosque.

  Ali Akil, a member of Syrian Solidarity New Zealand who came to Christc

hurch to support the community, said wearing the hjiab was “a symbolic thing.”

  ”It’s saying I respect you, what you believe, and I’m here to help,” he said. “I’m very impressed.”

Big breakthroughs at major events enshrine a generation of

After going 0-5 at the 2016 Rio Olympics and failing to qualify for the last World Cup, in 2

014 in Spain, Asian Games champion China is under heavy pressure to deliver an improved performance at home.

Should China emerge from Group A, it will face one of the top two

teams from a tougher-looking Group B, which features Argentina, Russia, South Korea and Nigeria.

At one point in the meeting Tump, said he wasn’t going to

  ”comment on Brexit,” but characteristically unable to constrain himself, could barely leave the topic alone.

  At the start of his meeting, Trump welcomed Varadkar, and pointin

g out that his visitor was in a difficult position over Britain’s tortured attempts to com

plete its withdrawal from the European Union, which could harm Ireland’s peace and prosperity.

  Trump also, as he often does, used his position to slyly shout out one of his businesses, in this case, a golf course in Ireland.

  ”I have a very warm spot for Doonbeg, I will tell you that and it just a great place really.”

  While praising Ireland, Trump promptly switched to a characteristic boast about his own success, his mana

gement of the economy and how he held “all of the records … every single record for the stock market.”

  Trump’s obsession with Obama — a defining characteristic — app

eared like a nervous tick twice in his photo-op, twinned with a willingness to spout untruths.

  dual responsibility of offering suggestions and building consensus, and shoulder its political responsibilities of impleme

nting the CPC Central Committee’s decisions and plans, of meeting its requirements for CPPCC wo、
