The UN Security Council is to hold an emergency session on Friday on the ceasefire deal in eastern Ukraine that is showing tentative signs of taking hold, diplomats said. France and Germany requested the meeting of the 15-member council as Ukraine's military began withdrawing heavy weapons from the frontline and fighting with pro-Russian rebels appeared to subside. It will be the first session of the Security Council since it met on February 17 to endorse the ceasefire deal reached in Minsk between Russian President Vladimir Putin and the leaders of Ukraine, France and Germany.
As a Jewish Israeli Communist running for election under an Arab banner, Dov Khenin is often the butt of jokes. In a country where most of the electorate leans to the right, the 57-year-old member of a Communist party that includes both Jewish and Arab lawmakers is used to threats and hate mail. "I've been subjected to many threats," the father-of-three told AFP, saying that during last year's 50-day war between Israel and Hamas militants in Gaza, the state security services had to protect him and his family. "It wasn't a pleasant situation... but it wasn't enough to make me change my views," he told AFP while campaigning in the Bedouin village of Laqiya in Israel's southern Negev desert.
By Dana Feldman VENTURA, Calif. (Reuters) - A driver whose vehicle was struck by a Southern California commuter train, triggering a wreck in which 50 people were hurt, will not be charged at this time in connection with the derailment, Ventura County prosecutors said on Thursday. Prosecutors said they would await more investigative findings before making a final decision on whether to charge Jose Alejandro Sanchez-Ramirez, 54, in connection with Tuesday's crash in Oxnard, about 45 miles (72 km) northwest of Los Angeles. Sanchez-Ramirez was found walking and "in distress" over a mile from the crash site and was later taken into custody on suspicion of felony hit-and-run for leaving the scene of the accident. He had been scheduled to appear in court on Thursday but was now expected to be released after Ventura County District Attorney Gregory D. Totten's office said in a statement that "no charges will be filed at this time" against him.
