By Elisabeth O'Leary EDINBURGH (Reuters) - First Minister Nicola Sturgeon will meet European Parliament chiefs in Brussels on Wednesday to seek a way for Scotland to remain in the European Union, she said on Tuesday. Scotland, a nation of five million people, voted to stay in the EU by 62 to 38 percent in last week's referendum, putting it at odds with the United Kingdom as a whole, which voted 52 to 48 percent in favour of Brexit. Sturgeon has called the prospect of Scotland being taken out of the EU "democratically unacceptable" and said she would take all necessary steps to prevent it, including revisiting the issue of independence from the United Kingdom.

United Nations High Commissioner for Human Rights Al Hussein arrives for the 31st session of the Human Rights Council in GenevaBy Stephanie Nebehay and Marina Depetris GENEVA (Reuters) - The United Nations High Commissioner for Human Rights urged Britain on Tuesday to prevent further incidents of xenophobic abuse in the wake of the vote to leave the European Union, and to prosecute perpetrators. Polish and Muslim leaders in Britain have expressed concern about a spate of racially motivated hate crimes following last week's Brexit referendum, in which immigration was a key issue. Zeid Ra'ad Al Hussein, the U.N. rights boss, voiced deep concern over reports of abuse targeting minority communities and foreigners in Britain.

Volkswagen owns 12 brands, including VW, Audi, Porsche, Seat and LamborhginiVolkswagen has agreed to a record $15 billion US payout over its emissions-cheating diesel cars, pledging to buy back or fix vehicles that tricked pollution tests, and pay each owner up to $10,000. The German auto giant agreed in a settlement filed in federal court Tuesday to pay some $14.7 billion to American consumers and US authorities, and announced a separate deal to pay $603 million to settle consumer protection claims from US states. The huge settlement, the largest US payout in an air pollution probe, only partly resolves claims against the automaker, embroiled in a months-long scandal that has roiled the industry and tarnished the reputation of the company and its "green" initiatives.
