UGANDA: A judge ruled today that the police must end opposition leader Bobi Wine’s house arrest.
Mr Wine has been unable to leave his home since January 14’s election, which he officially lost to incumbent President Yoweri Museveni, though he disputes the result.
The judge said that the government should charge Mr Wine with something if it believes he is guilty.
CHINA: Rescue workers found the bodies of nine miners today, meaning at least 10 have died as a result of explosions in a gold mine in Qixia, Yantai City, Shandong province.
Eleven miners were rescued on Sunday and one remains missing. Yantai Mayor Chen Fei said that rescuers would keep searching.
The cause of the January 10 explosion is being investigated and the mine’s managers are under arrest.
EUROPEAN UNION: The EU called for new elections in Venezuela today, less than two months since the country held National Assembly elections that the bloc refused to recognise.
EU foreign ministers called for dialogue between the opposition and the government, though most opposition parties participated in December’s vote.
Juan Guaido, the self-proclaimed “president” recognised by the United States and EU, did not.
The ministers warned that they were ready to slap further sanctions on the Latin American country.
MEDITERRANEAN: Turkey and Greece resumed detente talks today after a year in which they almost came to blows over oil exploration rights.
Greek and Turkish warships shadowed each other as Turkey prospected for oil last year, even exchanging live fire.
Turkish presidential spokesman Ibrahim Kalin said: “Regional peace and stability is in everyone’s interests.”
But Greek government spokesman Christos Tarantilis downplayed the talks, saying they were “not negotiations” and “not binding.”
Greece signed a €2.3 billion (£2bn) arms deal with France yesterday, buying 18 Rafale fighter jets.
