World Watch: Barca blitz

* Spain: The latest edition of the Spanish clasico turned into a 5-0 walk in the park for FC Barcelona over bitter rivals Real Madrid.

* Egypt: Hundreds of protesters took to the streets of Cairo to demonstrate against alleged voting irregularities.

* Asia: According to the Japanese press representatives of that country, South Korea, and the U.S. will meet next week to discuss the crisis on the Korean peninsula.

* Switzerland: First it was banning the construction of new minarets, and now Swiss voters backed a referendum measure to expel foreigners convicted of serious crimes.
