Dozens of migrants trying to stow away on vehicles crossing the Channel by tunnel between France and England broke through perimeter fences at Calais overnight, temporarily halting traffic, a Eurotunnel spokesman said on Saturday. The disruption was the latest in a series of incidents involving some 3,000 migrants, mostly from Africa and the Middle East, who are camped around the northern French port in the hope of reaching Britain. "At around 7 p.m. (1400 EDT) on Friday there were migrants all around the perimeter trying to break through the fences," the Eurotunnel spokesman told Reuters.
By Thomas Escritt AMSTERDAM (Reuters) - The International Criminal Court on Friday postponed the trial of Congolese warlord Bosco Ntaganda, accused of leading a militia in a campaign marked by rape and murder, after his lawyers said they needed more time to build his defence case. The trial of Ntaganda, who has been in custody since 2013, was rescheduled for September 2. In submissions made last week, published today in heavily redacted form, defence lawyers said Ntaganda would not receive a fair trial if proceedings began before they were fully prepared.
