Abductees dead

PAKISTAN on Monday confirmed the death of two Chinese nationals who were killed in southwestern Balochistan province days after they were kidnapped from Quetta, the provincial capital in May this year.

“The DNA reports have confirmed that the two persons killed in Balochistan in June 2017 were the same two Chinese nationals who were kidnapped from Quetta in May 2017,” Pakistan’s foreign ministry said in a statement.

According to reports, the couple who were teaching Chinese in Pakistan were kidnapped in May by unknown gunmen in Quetta.

Catalan leader accused

SPAIN’S state prosecutor accused sacked Catalan leader Carles Puigdemont on Monday of rebellion and sedition as the former regional president traveled to Belgium with other members of his ousted administration and hired a lawyer there.

As Madrid began direct rule of Catalonia, Attorney General Jose Manuel Maza called for charges of rebellion, sedition, fraud and misuse of funds to be brought against Catalan leaders who organized an illegal referendum on independence from Spain.

On Friday, Spanish Prime Minister Mariano Rajoy dismissed Catalonia’s secessionist government, called a regional election for Dec. 21 and said the central government would take direct control.

That process began smoothly Monday as employees ignored calls for civil disobedience and turned up for work, while secessionist parties agreed to stand in the December poll.

German coalition talks

PARTIES seeking to form Germany’s next government found common ground in areas of social policy and digital infrastructure Monday, but remain far apart on issues that provoked stormy clashes last week.

Talks between conservatives, Greens and Free Democrats (FDP) resumed Monday after Chancellor Angela Merkel convened a weekend meeting to clear the air between ideologically diverse parties forced by electoral arithmetic into awkward partnership.

Northern Ireland talks

THE British Government on Monday extended by 24 hours a deadline for Northern Ireland’s political parties to re-establish a devolved regional executive and avoid London setting the region’s annual budget for the first time in a decade.

The pro-British Democratic Unionist Party and the Irish nationalist Sinn Fein party made progress in talks Monday and they said they would continue talking yesterday.
