World - EU executive opposes call for easier suspension of visa-free travel

By Tom Koerkemeier BRUSSELS (Reuters) - A proposal by Germany and France to make it easier to suspend visa-free travel to the European Union from countries such as Turkey drew a frosty reception from the executive European Commission on Friday. In what was seen as a move to make visa liberalization for Turks, Ukrainians and Georgians more acceptable, Berlin and Paris wrote to EU partners this week calling for a tougher safeguard mechanism in case of a spike of asylum requests, overstays or readmission refusals. Under their plan, which would have to be formally put forward by the Commission, any member state would be allowed to suspend visa-free travel from any country for six months unless EU states voted by a qualified majority to overrule it.

World - On a bus, South Africans claim back land taken under apartheid

By Matthew Ponsford LONDON (Thomson Reuters Foundation) - South Africans whose land was confiscated under racist laws in the apartheid era have lodged more than 27,000 legal claims at `mobile land claims offices` housed in buses and four-wheel-drive trucks, a land rights commission said. Six specially adapted vehicles have traveled between remote rural communities since April 2015, reaching more than 100,000 households, according to the Commission on the Restitution of Land Rights, which operates them. Under the previous Union and apartheid white-minority governments, segregationist laws severely restricted the right of black South Africans to own land and forced millions onto reservations.

World - EU calculation for handing out free carbon permits flawed: court

By Alissa de Carbonnel BRUSSELS (Reuters) - Europe`s highest court on Thursday ruled that the European Commission`s calculation for handing out free carbon permits to industries was flawed, raising the prospect of higher costs for big energy users. The decision followed a court advisor`s opinion in November that the ceiling was too high, when a calculation known as the correction factor was used to cap the total amount of allowances distributed to shelter industry from added energy costs they say could drive them out of Europe. It gave the Commission 10 months to review the policy.

World - Pro-EU Serbian PM wins election landslide: official results
