* Europe: The Euro 2012 soccer qualifier between Italy and Serbia in Genoa was suspended reportedly due to the disruptive antics of a group of visiting fans.

* Sudan: A 2005 peace agreement that ended Sudan's civil war is in danger of failing after talks over a disputed region ended without a resolution.

* Hungary: Could more vigilant inspectors have prevented the wave of toxic sludge that swept through several towns and killed at least eight people?

* Israel: An Israeli court convicted a Palestinian "protest leader" who organized demontstrations against a wall being erected along the West Bank.
