World - Think Europe`s halting GMOs? It could be heading for more

By Sybille de La Hamaide and Barbara Lewis PARIS (Reuters) - The large number of European countries opposing GMO cultivation may have given the impression the bloc is putting a brake on GMOs but with new crops queuing for approval and key countries leaving the door open, output is more likely to grow than wane. Nineteen out of 28 EU member states have requested opt-outs for all or part of their territory from cultivation of Monsanto`s MON810, the sole GMO crop already approved for cultivation, or for pending applications.

World - Ched Evans rape conviction sent to Court of Appeal

British footballer Ched Evans` conviction for rape has been referred to Britain`s Court of Appeal, a body that investigates alleged miscarriages of justice announced on Monday. The former Wales striker, who maintains his innocence, was released from prison last year after serving half of a five-year sentence for raping a 19-year-old woman in a north Wales hotel room in May 2011. Evans, 26, subsequently saw an attempt to resurrect his career with English third-tier club Oldham Athletic collapse amid a public outcry, but new evidence that could have supported his defence has since been unearthed by the Criminal Cases Review Commission (CCRC).
