CARACAS, Venezuela — Jailed opposition leader Leopoldo Lopez has begun a hunger strike and is calling for a mass antigovernment protest next weekend.
The former Caracas area mayor accused authorities in a video leaked to news media on Saturday of killing dozens of people during 2014 protests.
The video leak came after news broke that fellow opposition leader, Daniel Ceballos, was being transferred from the military prison outside Caracas where he was held with Lopez to a public jail away from the capital.
WARSAW, Poland — Polish President Bronislaw Komorowski conceded defeat in the county’s presidential election Sunday after an exit poll showed him trailing Andrzej Duda, a previously little-known right-wing politician.
If the exit poll is confirmed by official results, which are due Monday, it marks a significant blow to the ruling Civic Platform party ahead of more important parliamentary elections this year.
Duda belongs to the Law and Justice party of former prime minister Jaroslaw Kaczynski, a right-wing party that mixes traditional national values like Catholicism with calls for a stronger state role in the economy.
The party ran the government from 2005 to 2007 and the presidency from 2005 to 2010, until the late President Lech Kaczynski, the party chairman’s twin brother, was killed in a plane crash in Russia.
Polish presidents have fewer powers than prime ministers and their governments, but the president does represent the nation internationally and helps set a political and moral tone at home.
CANNES, France — The 68th Cannes Film Festival was brought to a surprising close Sunday with Jacques Audiard’s Sri Lankan refugee film taking the festival’s coveted top honor, the Palme d’Or.
While the dapper French filmmaker has drawn widespread acclaim for films such as “A Prophet” and “Rust and Bone,” some critics were disappointed by the climax of Audiard’s film.
“This isn’t a jury of film critics,” Joel Coen said after the awards ceremony, alongside fellow jurors such as director Guillermo del Toro and actor Jake Gyllenhaal.
Greek filmmaker Yorgos Lanthimos took the jury prize for his “The Lobster,” a deadpan dystopian comedy starring Colin Farrell and Rachel Weisz.
Just over a week after a failed coup, the crisis in Burundi deteriorated sharply with escalating violence and the weekend assassination of an opposition leader.
Observers fear the small central African nation is sliding dangerously toward another civil war, with Nkurunziza determined to cling to power despite widespread opposition.
Feruzi was shot by men wearing uniforms similar to those of the presidential guard, who pulled up in a car, opened fire and sped off, Burundi radio journalist Jean-Baptiste Bireha told news agencies.
After Feruzi’s assassination, some opposition leaders went into hiding, warning that anyone who opposed Nkurunziza re-election effort could be killed, the Associated Press reported.
Nkurunziza was in the Tanzanian capital Dar es Salaam on May 13 to discuss the crisis generated by his election plans with African leaders when Maj.
