EU urged to label Israeli West bank produce: report, sources

A view of an Israeli settlement in the West Bank is seen on September 5, 2014Sixteen out of the 28 EU countries want the bloc to label products from Israeli settlements in the occupied West Bank, diplomatic sources told AFP Thursday, confirming a Haaretz report. The plan was first mooted in 2012, angering Israel, but the 16 member states told EU foreign affairs head Federica Mogherini it was now time to press ahead as part of efforts to realise a two-state peace deal. "We would welcome you taking the lead in the (European) Commission in order to complete this important work on labelling settlement produce/products," the foreign ministers said in the letter, reproduced by the Israeli newspaper Haaretz. Continued Israeli settlement building "threatens the prospect of a just and final peace agreement," they wrote, adding that labelling would make it clear to consumers what they were buying as endorsed by EU leaders at a summit in 2012.


Migrants ‘thrown overboard’ in religious row as toll climbs

Italian Red Cross personnel prepare to give first aid to shipwrecked migrants as they arrive in the Italian port of Augusta, in Sicily on April 16, 2015Italian police on Thursday said 12 African migrants had died after being thrown overboard by fellow passengers in the latest high-seas tragedy in the Mediterranean, as another 41 boat migrants were feared drowned in a separate incident. Police in the Sicilian port of Palermo said they had arrested 15 Muslim migrants suspected of attacking Christian passengers after a religious row on a boat headed for Italy, which is struggling to cope with a huge spike in illegal migrants arriving on its shores. They were charged with "multiple aggravated murder motivated by religious hate," according to a police statement. Distraught survivors, who set off from Libya on Tuesday before being rescued by an Italian vessel on Wednesday, told a "dreadful" story of "forcefully resisting attempts to drown them, forming a veritable human chain in some cases," police said.
