Britain's opposition Labour party leader Miliband addresses an audience during a campaign event in LondonBy Andrew Osborn LONDON (Reuters) - The Labour Party on Sunday ruled out a post-election deal with Scottish nationalists after Prime Minister David Cameron's Conservatives said such a tie-up could spark the biggest constitutional crisis since the 1936 abdication of the king. The policy shift, by Labour leader Ed Miliband, was designed to blunt what has become Cameron's main attack line before the May 7 election, a contest that is shaping up to be the country's closest and most unpredictable since the 1970s. The stakes are unusually high: Cameron is promising a European Union membership referendum which could see the world's fifth largest economy leave the trading bloc, while Scottish nationalists are pushing for a deal with Labour which opponents fear could pave the way for another independence referendum.

Riot police officer sprays teargas on residents participating in street protests in Burundi's capital BujumburaPolice in Burundi's capital Bujumbura shot dead two people on Sunday who were taking part in protests against President Pierre Nkurunziza's seeking a third term, the Burundi Red Cross said. "We counted two protesters killed by police, four others were injured and one is in a coma in hospital after being hit by a bullet," Alexis Manirakiza, spokesman for the Burundi Red Cross, told Reuters. Earlier riot police used water cannon, tear gas and in some cases live bullets to scatter demonstrators, a day after Burundi's ruling party nominated Nkurunziza as its presidential candidate.

Gay marriage is now legal in 37 US states and the capital Washington, but it cannot be officiated and is not recognized in 13 other statesGay marriage is now legal in 37 US states and the capital Washington, but it cannot be officiated and is not recognized in 13 other states. The US Supreme Court is due to rule on the status of gay marriage nationwide in late June, after hearing arguments on the issue next week. Each of the 50 US states can determine whether it recognizes a same-sex union officiated in another state, which has consequences on what subsidies and tax credits a couple can claim. A total of 37 states, the federal capital Washington and at least 10 Native American tribes legally or constitutionally authorize gay marriage.
