Question of the Day
Eamon Cassidy, 49, offered no plea and was ordered held without bail on charges that he had a role in planting a 100-pound car bomb across the street from the courthouse in Londonderry, Northern Ireland’s second-largest city, in March 2011. Tuesday’s arraignment took place in the same building.
Mr. Cassidy is being held in Northern Ireland’s main prison, Maghaberry, while awaiting trial on the first charge when Londonderry police found a small bomb in September 2011 while searching a car carrying him and other alleged IRA dissidents.
Police attack veterans demanding pensions
BUENOS AIRES — Argentine police fired tear gas and used water cannons on Tuesday to break up a protest by veterans of the 1982 Falklands War who demand pensions for their service.
Security forces acted when the former soldiers, wearing military uniforms and carrying sticks and shields, charged into a line of riot police in the capital Buenos Aires.
The veterans are part of a group that was mobilized during the war with Britain but were sent to the Patagonia region of South America instead of being deployed to the Falklands, which are part of the British Commonwealth.
Coal miners donate food for people cut off by blizzard
BUCHAREST — Thousands of coal miners volunteered Tuesday to donate some of their food to help feed people in areas buried in snow as deep as 15 feet.
Helicopters already are rushing to 150 communities in Romania that have been cut off to deliver food and pick up sick people who need hospital treatment.
Officials said five Romanians died in the past 24 hours because of frigid temperatures, bringing the total to 79 weather-related deaths since the nation’s cold spell began.
Neighboring Moldova also has been hard hit by snow, and both countries have seen schools, borders, highways and train services shut down in some areas as temperatures plunged to minus 9 Fahrenheit overnight there.
On Tuesday, about 4,000 Romanian coal miners volunteered to buy tins of food from the money the company gives them for hot meals and donate that to the worst-affected victims in eastern Romania.
