Police in Thailand say garbage collectors have found four fetuses in the trash at a popular resort town. Police Lt. Sommit Petchpradab said the fetuses were discovered Tuesday by garbage collectors in Hua Hin, 145 kilometres southwest of Bangkok. He said they were found together in a large black plastic bag. Sommit said Wednesday that police are still investigating the case. Legal access to abortions is limited in Thailand, so many patronize underground abortion clinics.

UK and Irish leaders seek end to Northern Ireland stalemate 12.2.2018 General News
The British and Irish prime ministers are heading to Belfast as hopes rise for an end to a political stalemate that has left Northern Ireland without a government for more than a year. UK Prime Minister Theresa May and her Irish counterpart, Leo Varadkar, are due to hold talks with the main political parties in Northern Ireland's collapsed power-sharing administration. May's office says today's trip is aimed at encouraging the pro-British Democratic Unionist Party and Irish nationalists of Sinn Fein to resolve their differences. The Catholic-Protestant power-sharing administration has been suspended since January 2017, after breaking down amid scandal over a botched green-energy project. The parties have blamed each other for the impasse that threatens power-sharing, the key achievement of Northern Ireland's 1998 peace accord.
