Germany did not follow correct procedure in seeking the extradition, from Italy, of a rapist, named as Christian B., on a European Arrest Warrant, an EU court adviser has said.

The EU court usually follows advisers' opinions.
The European Commission offered preferential trade terms and €33m in immediate aid to Lebanon on Thursday, after a huge explosion in its port, which prompted fresh protests against government corruption and incompetence.

The European Commission on Wednesday announced it had prolonged anti-dumping duties on imports of Chinese corrosion-resistant steel.

The next nominated US ambassador to Germany, Douglas Macgregor, holds xenophobic and pro-Kremlin views, according to interview footage unearthed by US broadcaster CNN.

Eastern Ukrainians under Russian occupation were "Russians", he also said on RT, a Russian propaganda outlet.
The head of a German doctors union warned that the spike in covid-19 cases is a signal that the second wave of the virus is already hitting the country.

A US decision to build new military bases in Poland is the "crowning glory" of the Polish government's foreign and defence policy, Polish defence minister Mariusz Błaszczak said Tuesday. The US intelligence, infantry, and aviation facilities are to be staffed by some 1,000 troops on a "rotational" basis, but Błaszczak said it meant an "enduring" US presence. The Russia-deterrent forces will join 4,500 US soldiers already on rotation in Poland.
