They would also have to go on obeying the so-called non-refoulement principle, which means ensuring that people deported by the EU are not pushed further towards places where their lives might be at risk. Safe zones Specifically, the proposal also includes an option to recognize certain regions - rather than whole states as is the case now - as fit for people, including asylum seekers, to be sent back to. EU officials acknowledge they are considering this "safe zones" concept, which could mean sending people back to certain areas of countries otherwise deemed too dangerous. "These plans are overturning the international law on refugees... This is an utter betrayal, inhumane," Ska Keller, a Green member of the European Parliament, said of the document. The European Union's executive had no comment on the proposal paper. The document said: "This is not about building a 'Fortress Europe'.

The trial in Libya of Saif al-Islam Gadhafi, the son of former strongman Moammar Gadhafi and 36 other members of his regime, failed to live up to international standards of fairness, a United Nations report said Tuesday. The trial was a major effort by the Libyan judiciary to hold people accountable for crimes, including grave violations of human rights during the 2011 revolution, which toppled former dictator Moammar Gadhafi. But in the end, the U.N. report determined the trial did not do what it was meant to do. The report calls the trial procedure flawed and unfair. For example, the report says defendants were held incommunicado for prolonged periods and allegedly were subjected to torturecharges that were never investigated. The report says lawyers complained they were unable to meet their clients in private and had difficulty accessing documents.

In 2006, during their 26th General Assembly , the International Astronomical Union (IAU) adopted a formal definition of the term planet. This was done in the hopes of dispelling ambiguity over which bodies should be designated as planets, an issue that had plagued astronomers ever since they discovered objects beyond the orbit of Neptune that were comparable in size to Pluto. Needless to say, the definition they adopted resulted in fair degree of controversy from the astronomical community. For this reason, a team of planetary scientists which includes famed Pluto defender Alan Stern have come together to propose a new meaning for the term planet. Based on their geophysical definition, the term would apply to over 100 bodies in the Solar System, including the Moon itself. The current IAU definition (known as Resolution 5A) states that a planet is defined based on the following criteria: (1) A planet is a celestial body that (a) is in orbit around the Sun, (b) has sufficient mass for its self-gravity to overcome rigid body forces so that it assumes a hydrostatic equilibrium (nearly round) shape, and (c) has cleared the neighbourhood around its orbit.

Jamie Vardy insists he has blanked out all the criticism he has received after struggling to reach the same goal-scoring heights as he did last season for Leicester City, writes James Sharpe. The England international has scored just five goals in the Premier League this campaign and is yet to find the net in the Champions League ahead of City's last-16 first leg against Sevilla tonight. Vardy has borne the brunt of much of the blame for City's capitulation, with Match of the Day...
