Question of the Day
Landslide kills 20; others missing
SAN ANTONIO DE ESCAZU | A rain-sodden hillside collapsed on homes in a suburb of Costa Rica’s capital early Thursday, killing at least 20 people, many as they slept.
Dozens of rescuers, some using dogs, were searching for survivors as an undetermined number of people remain missing. But so far they have found only corpses, including the body of a child, according to Hector Blanco, a Red Cross spokesman. They have not yet been identified.
Costa Rican President Laura Chinchilla said at least 20 bodies had been pulled out the debris by midafternoon, including four minors.
The landslide in the suburb followed two days of heavy rains that flooded a river near the town and sent 1,500 people to shelters across Costa Rica.
UK: Israeli officials shouldn’t fear arrest
JERUSALEM | Israeli officials should not fear arrest warrants initiated by pro-Palestinian activists when they travel to Britain on official business, British Foreign Secretary William Hague said Thursday.
Mr. Hague’s comments sought to reassure Israeli leaders after they suspended an annual strategic meeting in Britain last month owing to fears they could be arrested under the principle of “universal jurisdiction.”
Pro-Palestinian activists in Britain have sought the arrest of Israeli officials under the principle, which allows courts to prosecute purported war crimes from elsewhere in the world.
No cases have gone ahead, but Israeli officials have canceled trips owing to arrest fears. The issue has caused tension between the two countries.
Mr. Hague said officials traveling to Britain will not face arrest.
