Among others, the declaration is signed by two Jewish regional associations, ten municipalities as well as the Amadeu Antonio Foundation, the Moses Mendelssohn Center (Potsdam), the musician Andrej Hermlin and the Green politician Volker Beck.

The highest Shiite cleric, Sheikh Issa Kassim, had traveled to London for treatment, the cleric said on Monday. For this he got a one-year limited passport. The spiritual leader of Bahrain’s largest opposition group was deprived of citizenship two years ago. It is unclear which disease the 81-year-old is suffering from.

The Association Social Competition (VSW) had obtained a preliminary injunction against Hummels. The accusation: Hummels make advertising prohibited on Instagram – they praise products without labeling them as advertisements. Their lawyers objected to this.

The model itself did not appear. +++ 13.53 clock: Eritrea and Ethiopia officially end the state of war +++ After decades of hostility, Ethiopia and Eritrea have officially ended their state of war.

Both countries now sought “close cooperation in the political, economic, social, cultural and security fields”. The statement marks a turnaround in the relationship between the two states: Because of a border dispute, they fought a bitter war from 1998 to 2000, in which some 80,000 people were killed.

By autumn, an agreement will be in place to regulate the conditions of withdrawal and set the political framework for future relations between the two sides. +++ 13:19: Lufthansa recalculated bonus miles for thousands of tickets +++ Due to a software error Lufthansa has to recalculate the bonus miles for thousands of tickets. The error that has occurred since the beginning of June is recognized and will be resolved by the end of this month, said a spokesman for Lufthansa subsidiary Miles & More in Frankfurt. In the customer loyalty program especially tickets were wrongly calculated, which had been booked by major customers, as the “Frankfurter Allgemeine Sonntagszeitung” had reported. Miles & More did not fundamentally change the bonus system until March.

According to police, the young woman was seriously injured in the late night incident in Bergheim near Cologne.

Salvini had demanded that not all ships of international missions, such as Eunavfor Med Sophia, in which Germany is also involved, should automatically enter Italy. Salvini said he wanted to bring the issue to the table of the EU Interior Ministers meeting in Innsbruck on Thursday. However, Italian media cited from the Ministry of Defense, according to which decide not the Interior Minister, but the Ministry of Defense and the Ministry of Foreign Affairs on the topic of EU missions.

Whether the sighting was the escaped marsupial was still unclear. The police reported that a hunter reported seeing the animal on a wildlife camera. The missing kangaroo was outgrown on a private plot on June 23rd. It was then spotted several times, but could not be captured. Capturing a kangaroo in the wild is rather difficult, said Claudia Vollhardt, curator at the Karlsruhe Zoo. From the Karlsruhe Zoo, marsupials have been outgrown again and again. One had to corner and capture with a net. The others returned more or less voluntarily. +++ 12:30 clock: British fan robbed in taxi ride in Moscow +++ A British football fan was robbed during a taxi ride in Moscow.

The Chancellor and the Minister are in lively exchange, they “agree that the security situation for the citizens may not deteriorate after Brexit,” said the deputy Government spokeswoman Martina Fietz in Berlin. “The Chancellor and the Minister of the Interior have also talked to each other today once again.” Seehofer had warned the EU Commission to “full security cooperation” with London, even after the British EU exit. Delicate is Seehofer’s intervention because he took over positions of British Prime Minister Theresa May, deviating from the official EU line. The German Permanent Representation to the EU later dissociated itself in a letter from the Friday from Seehofer’s letter. “I would like to make it clear that this is a letter that is not voted on in the Federal Government,” wrote the head of the political department, Thomas Eckert, to the EU Commission. A spokesman for the Federal Ministry of the Interior emphasized: “It was really not the intention to cause any irritation.” In his letter, the Minister did not want to question in any way the Commission’s guidelines. Government spokeswoman Fietz said that Merkel also considers security cooperation with Great Britain important. “There is no dissent between the Chancellor, for example, and the Home Secretary,” she added. +++ 12:05: Indian court confirmed death sentence for rapists +++ India’s Supreme Court has upheld the death sentences against three rapists.

According to the court, there is no new information to support a review of the verdict, the lawyer said. A fourth convicted person also wanted to file an application. The young woman was abducted on a bus on 16 December 2012 and was raped and tortured by six men. She died just two weeks later of her internal injuries. The crime triggered an unprecedented wave of protests. Thousands of young Indians demonstrated against sexual assault. One of the culprits took his own life. Another was sentenced to a juvenile sentence because he was still a minor at the time of the crime. +++ 11.40 clock: Dominic Raab to be new Brexit Minister +++ Dominic Raab to become the new Brexit minister in the UK.

A website has been set up to collect donations from “all those French who can not endure injustice,” wrote Le Pen on Twitter. She fears the confiscation of party funds for the existence of her National Rally, which until recently was called Front National (FN). Investigating judges had decided to withhold two million euros from public funding for the party. At the end of August, therefore, threatened the “death” of the largest opposition party in France, Le Pen said the station BFMTV. Background is an affair for EU Parliament jobs.

In the CSU, splitting off is also out of the question: “In the CSU there is no voice that demands this, and an end to the community can only lead to the greatest evil.” Speculations about a breach of the Union had arisen during the asylum dispute between the CDU and in the course of which the CSU leader and Federal Interior Minister had threatened to resign. +++ 10.50 am: More than 215,000 night flights to Germany’s airports +++ The number of night flights in Germany reached a new record level in 2017.

Ten years earlier, the number of night flights was therefore 193,434 still below the 200,000 mark. The reasons for the increase in night flights is, on the one hand, the growth in overall air traffic. On the other hand, it is because of the fact that the authorities do not do much against increasing delays and early arrivals. +++ 10.00 clock: Romania’s chief corruption investigator dismissed +++ Under pressure from the government, Romanian President Klaus Iohannis dismissed the head of the anti-corruption unit, the prosecutor (DNA). Iohannis bowed to a ruling by the Constitutional Court stating that the head of state should not oppose the government’s proposal on this personal issue. The work of the DNA and the now dismissed boss Laura Kövesi was last of the
EU much appreciated. Justice Minister Tudorel Toader had requested the dismissal of Kövesi months before, but Johannes had refused to do so by signing it. As a result, Toader turned to the Constitutional Court, which is mostly filled with pro-government judges. The driving force behind this is the head of the ruling party PSD, Liviu Dragnea, who is not allowed to become prime minister because he has a criminal record. He controls the government. +++ 9:21 clock: construction prices for residential buildings continue to grow vigorously +++ Prices for the new construction of residential buildings continued to rise in May.

In the current RTL / n-tv trend barometer would be at a federal election in Bavaria currently only 34 percent
