UK withdrawing warrant for ill boy's parents

This is an undated handout photos issued by England's Hampshire Police on Monday Sept. 1, 2014, of Brett King and Naghemeh King, the parents of Ashya King, who have legal proceedings against them continuing in Spain after they took the five-year-old brain cancer patient out of hospital without doctors' consent. Critically-ill 5-year-old boy Ashya King driven to Spain by his parents is receiving medical treatment for a brain tumor in a Spanish hospital as his parents await extradition to Britain, police said Sunday Aug. 31 2014. Officers received a phone call late Saturday from a hotel east of Malaga advising that a vehicle fitting the description circulated by police was on its premises. Both parents were arrested and the boy, Ashya King, was taken to a hospital, a Spanish police spokesman said.

Parents could be reunited with seriously ill British boy on Wednesday

Spanish police stand in front of a van that Naghemeh and Brett, parents of seriously ill Ashya King, arrived in, at the Spanish High Court in MadridTwo British parents detained in Madrid for taking their seriously ill child out of hospital could be reunited with him as soon as Wednesday, as legal authorities in both Spain and Britain prepared to allow their release from custody. The high-profile case of the parents' arrest and separation from their five-year old son prompted British Prime Minister, David Cameron, to call for "an outbreak of common sense" amid widespread condemnation in the country's media of the British police's pursuit of the couple. The parents of Ashya King, who has a brain tumour, were separated from their son on Saturday, following a two-day cross-border manhunt initiated after they ignored medical advice and removed him from a hospital in Southampton, southern England, and took him to Spain. A Spanish court source told Reuters on Tuesday that Spain's state prosecutor was due to request that Naghemeh and Brett King be released on bail, while Britain's Crown Prosecution Service (CPS) said later in the day that it was taking steps to withdraw the European arrest warrant for the couple.

Victims of Nazi 'euthanasia' killings commemorated in Berlin

Berlin mayor Wowereit addresses a news conference in BerlinBy Helen Cahill BERLIN (Reuters) - Some 300,000 people with physical or mental disabilities who were killed under Nazi Germany's "euthanasia" program because their lives were deemed unworthy were commemorated on Tuesday with the opening of a memorial in Berlin. Relatives of the victims joined Mayor Klaus Wowereit and members of the public to lay wreaths and white roses in front of the 30-meter-(100-foot)-long, blue glass wall of the open-air memorial and permanent exhibition. The scheme was coordinated from offices next to Berlin's Tiergarten, where information about the forced sterilizations and murders is now presented on plaques. In the euthanasia program's headquarters, doctors and administrators listed physically and mentally disabled patients to be killed, decided how it should be done, and devised ways to keep the murders secret.
