CENTENNIAL, Colo. (AP) — Colorado theater shooter James Holmes appeared calm as his judge told jurors Monday how to decide if he should be executed, spend his life in prison, or be committed to an institution as criminally insane.
By Renee Maltezou and Deepa Babington ATHENS (Reuters) - Greek Prime Minister Alexis Tsipras on Monday reshuffled his team handling talks with European and IMF lenders, a move widely seen as an effort to relegate embattled Finance Minister Yanis Varoufakis to a less active role in negotiations. An anti-austerity economist who has angered peers with his brash style, Varoufakis is facing calls to quit after returning from a meeting of euro zone finance ministers in Riga isolated and empty-handed while Athens scrambles to avoid bankruptcy. Tsipras and senior aides publicly voiced support for Varoufakis at a meeting on Sunday and agreed the finance minister would supervise a new team negotiating a reforms deal with lenders, a government official said. This would elevate him from his current position and give him a more active role in the negotiations, pushing Varoufakis to the sidelines.
