Asylum seekers waiting in Nuevo Laredo fear lurking dangers

Asylum seekers waiting in Nuevo Laredo fear lurking dangersThe round-faced woman from La Ceiba, Honduras, and her 5- and 12-year-old sons arrived in this city across the border from Laredo, Texas, where she had been promised a job and hoped to build a new life. As the United States tries to slow the flow of mostly Central American migrants and asylum seekers to its southern border and pressures Mexico to assist, months-long stays on the Mexican side of the frontier have become the rule for many.

Fear and frustration in Iran's capital after aborted US attack

Fear and frustration in Iran's capital after aborted US attackFear of a potential war and frustration over biting sanctions are high in Iran’s capital, after a last-minute decision by the US to pull back from attacking the Islamic Republic.

WRAPUP 3-Indonesian airline cancels Boeing order, citing passenger fearJAKARTA/OSLO, March 22 (Reuters) – Indonesian airline Garuda plans to cancel a $ 6 billion order for Boeing 737 MAX jets, it said on Friday, saying some passengers would be frightened to board the plane after two fatal crashes, although analysts said the deal had long been in doubt. The news came as another 737 MAX customer, Norwegian Air , played down the significance of a move by Boeing to make a previously optional cockpit warning light compulsory. Norwegian said that, according to Boeing, the warning light would not have been able to prevent erroneous signals that Lion Air pilots received before their new 737 MAX plane crashed off Indonesia in October, killing 189 people.

Tusk’s ‘Place in Hell’ Jibe Reflects Fear and Frustration in Brussels

Tusk’s ‘Place in Hell’ Jibe Reflects Fear and Frustration in BrusselsA longer-than-scheduled, bad-tempered phone call between May and Tusk a week ago prompted a surge of concern in EU circles that May is unable to get any divorce deal through Parliament, according to European officials who declined to be named. Tusk was horrified that May was still asking the EU for solutions to end the impasse rather than coming up with credible ones of her own. May visits Brussels on Thursday as part of her efforts to get the EU to change the most controversial part of the divorce deal — the Irish border backstop.

Border plan sparks fear in Kosovo's Serb enclaves

Border plan sparks fear in Kosovo's Serb enclavesA possible land swap between Serbia and Kosovo, suggested by their leaders to end one of Europe’s most volatile territorial disputes, has sparked concerns that the border could be redrawn along ethnic lines and reignite festering communal ethnic animosities. With few details yet made public, media reports say that the Serb majority northern border region around the city of Mitrovica would be incorporated into Serbia under the plan, which would also see Belgrade hand over a mainly ethnic Albanian region in Serbia. The trade-off would also see Belgrade finally recognise its former province as an independent state, 20 years after a bitter war between Serbia’s forces and pro-independence ethnic Albanian guerrillas that led to Kosovo breaking away from Serbia in 2008.
