French President Francois Hollande said on Thursday that opposition forces fighting Islamic State militants in Syria and Iraq should have more Western support, but Syrian President Bashar al-Assad could not be an ally against jihadists. Assad is not a partner in the struggle against terrorism," he said in a speech. "There is no choice to be made between two barbarisms." In a text provided before a speech to an annual conference of French ambassadors, Hollande also said: "To fight Islamic State, the international community must also arm opposition forces who are fighting it." Syrian rebel forces have been fighting Assad for more than three years with political backing from the West in a war that has cost 190,000 lives.

As chancellor of Germany Angela Merkel may be the most powerful politician in the European Union, but she is more mirage than reality when it gets to the place of women in EU politics. EU leaders meet on Saturday to divide top jobs for the next five years, and after years of paying lip service to more equality among the sexes, it is plain for all to see, where are the women? (AP Photo/Geert Vanden Wijngaert, File )BRUSSELS (AP) — Don't be fooled by Angela Merkel. The German chancellor may be the most powerful leader in the European Union, but she hardly paints a true picture of the place of women in EU politics.

Sebastian Malecki, who is originally from Poland, poses for a photograph at the Whitehouse cafe where he works at in EdinburghThe number of European Union citizens moving to Britain has risen significantly, data showed on Thursday, putting pressure on Prime Minister David Cameron and his pledge to cut immigration - a key political issue ahead of a 2015 election. Opinion polls show that immigration is regularly top of voters' concerns heading into a general election next May and has fuelled rising support for the UK Independence party (UKIP), which wants to end EU workers right to move freely to Britain by pulling out of the 28-country bloc altogether. The Office for National Statistics (ONS) said net long-term migration into Britain was 243,000 in the year to March 2014, up from 175,000 in the previous twelve months.
