Paraguay faces impeachment trial
ASUNCIÓN, Paraguay - Paraguayan lawmakers voted Thursday to impeach President Fernando Lugo for his role in a deadly clash involving landless farmers and announced that the former Roman Catholic bishop's impeachment trial would begin Friday in the Senate.
Lugo, elected four years ago on promises that he would help the South American country's poor, went on national television to dismiss rumors he would resign and vowed to face the trial "with all its consequences."
Critics blame Lugo, 63, for the violence that erupted last week when police tried to evict about 150 farmers from a 4,900-acre reserve. Seventeen people died in the clash. - AP
30 Israelis agree to leave outpost
JERUSALEM - Israel's government said Thursday that 30 Jewish families have consented to leave an unauthorized West Bank settler outpost, suggesting their court-ordered evacuation could proceed peacefully.
The Israeli Supreme Court gave the government until July 1 to dismantle the Ulpana enclave, which was built on privately held Palestinian land. Israel considers such construction illegal, while authorizing construction elsewhere on West Bank lands the Palestinians claim for a future state.
The five apartment buildings where the settlers live are to be moved to a site nearby. The government said it would ask the court for three months to move the buildings. - AP
