Lawmakers in France's lower house of parliament has narrowly voted through a highly controversial proposal to amend the constitution to strip people convicted of terrorist offences of their French nationality. The measure, passed by 162 votes to 148 with 22 abstentions, followed weeks of debate after it was proposed as part of a set of measures by President Francois Hollande in the wake of the jihadist attacks in Paris on November 13 that killed 130 people. The nationality measure has strong public support but has deeply divided Hollande's ruling Socialist Party.
By James Oliphant and Amanda Becker MANCHESTER, N.H. (Reuters) - Billionaire businessman Donald Trump won New Hampshire's Republican presidential nominating contest on Tuesday, while U.S. Senator Bernie Sanders of Vermont won the Democratic primary over Hillary Clinton, U.S. television networks said after early results. Trump's win solidifies his front-runner status in the race to be the party's White House nominee for the Nov. 8 election. Sanders, who describes himself as a democratic socialist, had 56 percent of the vote in early returns, ahead of former Secretary of State Clinton, the perceived front-runner nationally, who had 42 percent, according to CNN.
