With most of the vote counted in the southern US state, the ex-Pennsylvania senator secured 49%, well ahead of the front-runner Mitt Romney, who had 27%. Mr. Santorum is seeking to close the gap on the ex-Massachusetts governor to become the party's nominee to challenge Barack Obama's in November's election. Mr. Romney has now won 21 out of 34 contests to Mr. Santorum's 11. Former House Speaker Newt Gingrich was trailing in Lousiana's poll in third place, ahead of Texan Ron Paul - who has yet to win a poll. "We're still here. We're still fighting. We still believe, as this race really shows," Mr. Santorum said in Wisconsin, where he watched the election results. He enjoys strong support among conservatives in the south, and he has also picked up backing from Republicans who have peeled away from Mr. Gingrich as he lost momentum. More»

Pope Benedict XVI has condemned drug-related violence in Mexico, as thousands of Catholics turned out to greet the pontiff who is visiting the country for the first time. In a tarmac speech after he touched down in the central city of Leon, Benedict referred to the everyday violence that ordinary Mexicans confront, saying he was praying for all in need, "particularly those who suffer because of old and new rivalries, resentments and all forms of violence". Speaking to journalists on board his flight on Friday, the pope had pledged to "unmask the evil" of drug trafficking in the world's second most populous Roman Catholic country. "We must do whatever is possible to combat this destructive evil against humanity and our youth," he said, referring to the violent conflict between rival drug cartels and the state that has killed 50,000 people since 2007. "It is the responsibility of the Church to educate consciences, to teach moral responsibility and to unmask the evil, to unmask this idolatry of money which enslaves man, to unmask the false promises, the lies, the fraud that is behind drugs."

The self-declared leader of a military coup in Mali has appeared in a recorded interview on state television to call for calm, and deny reports that soldiers had looted petrol stations and hijacked cars in the capital, Bamako. "I call on all Malians to stop the pillaging. The acts of vandalism are not from our soldiers. It is not their mission, it is not their fight," said Amadou Sanogo, an army captain, in the interview broadcast late on Friday. "You can buy a soldier's uniform in the market. What makes you think it is not other people who are doing this to damage the image of our cause?" Sanogo added. The situation remained tense and confused, with reports of sporadic gunfire in the capital, 48 hours after the coup against President Amadou Toumani Toure. Rumours swirled of an imminent counter-coup led by Toure loyalists and that Sanogo had been killed, a suggestion denied on state TV. "We assure you that everything is fine," a statement from the coup's leaders on Friday said. "We invite you to go about your daily business as normal." More»

The European Union's (EU) foreign ministers on Friday imposed sanctions on Syria's first lady Asma al-Assad along with other ten members of Syrian President Bashar al-Assad's inner circle, as violence continued in several Syrian areas over the weekend. Besides the first lady, the EU's 13th round of sanctions targeted the president's mother, sister and sister-in-law in addition to eight government ministers and two Syrian companies. The new measures include banning the sanctioned people from visiting the 27-nation bloc, freezing their assets and stopping them from shopping with European firms. However, the first lady will still be able to visit Britain, as she holds British citizenship. EU High Representative for Foreign Affairs and Security Policy Catherine Ashton said that the new sanctions aim to "weaken the regime's resources and its ability to conduct its brutal campaign.” More»

Renegade Malian soldiers went on state television on Thursday to declare they had seized power in a coup after the government's failure to quell a nomad-led rebellion in the north. The soldiers of the newly formed National Committee for the Restoration of Democracy and State (CNRDR) read out a brief statement after heavy weapons fire rang out around the presidential palace in the capital Bamako throughout the night. "The CNRDR ... has decided to assume its responsibilities by putting an end to the incompetent regime of Amadou Toumani Toure," said Amadou Konare, spokesman for the National Committee for the Restoration of Democracy and State (CNRDR). "We promise to hand power back to a democratically elected president as soon as the country is reunified and its integrity is no longer threatened," said Konare, flanked by about two dozen soldiers. A subsequent statement declared an immediate curfew "until further notice". More»

Mitt Romney was projected the winner of the Illinois primary on Tuesday night. The former Massachusetts governor went into the contest running ahead of rival contenders Rick Santorum, Newt Gingrich and Ron Paul, according to the latest polls. Illinois has 69 delegates, 54 of which were up for grabs in the primary. The AP reports that the economy was the top issue in the minds of Illinois voters as they cast ballots in the race for the Republican presidential nomination, according to exit polls. According to the polls, 48 percent of Illinois voters "strongly favored" the candidate they chose. But an impressively high amount -- 39 percent -- told pollsters that they had "reservations" about the candidate they ultimately selected. More»

Five former members of right-wing Guatemalan paramilitaries have been sentenced to a total of 7,710 years in jail for their role in a 1982 massacre. The men were charged with guiding the army to Plan de Sanchez, a rural community in northern Guatemala, and taking part in the ensuing massacre. Many of the victims were women and children. Nearly a quarter of a million people were killed in Guatemala's civil war which ran from 1960 to 1996. More»

About 300 French police officers surrounded a house in Toulouse early Wednesday morning, trying to coax the suspect in a series of deadly shootings -- including one at a Jewish school -- to give himself up. Soon after special operations police mounted their raid at 3:30 a.m shots rang out from inside, wounding two officers, police said. As the standoff stretched to its fifth hour, the 24-year-old suspect showed no signs of surrendering. He is accused of killing seven people in the last 10 days: a rabbi and three children at the Jewish school on Monday, and three soldiers of North African origin who had recently returned from Afghanistan in two earlier incidents. According to Interior Minister Claude Gueant, the suspect is a French national of Algerian origin who spent considerable time in Afghanistan and Pakistan. Gueant said the man said "he belongs to al Qaeda." He apparently is part of the jihadist group, Forsane Alizza, or Knights of Glory. Very little is known about the group, which the French government banned in January for trying to recruit people to fight in Afghanistan. More»

France submitted to the Security Council on Monday a Western-drafted statement supporting U.N.-Arab League envoy Kofi Annan's peace efforts in Syria and sending a strong message to Damascus to end violence against protesters, European diplomats said. The decision to prepare a "presidential statement" for the 15-nation council comes after Russia and China twice vetoed resolutions that would have condemned Syria's yearlong assault on demonstrators opposed to President Bashar al-Assad that the United Nations says has killed well over 8,000 civilians. "The French delegation circulated around a draft (statement) on Syria offering the council's full support for the mission of the joint special envoy Kofi Annan," Britain's U.N. Ambassador Mark Lyall Grant, Security Council president this month, told reporters after a closed-door meeting on unrelated matters. More»

A British judge barred a Muslim woman from serving on a jury in London on Monday after she refused to remove her face veil, or niqab. Judge Aidan Marron QC said he needed to see her facial expressions and could not sit on an attempted murder trial unless she removed it. Before the woman was about to take the oath in the case, Judge Marron said: “I wonder whether I can address the lady who is veiled. Would you prefer not to remove your veil in this particular case?” The woman, who was wearing western clothing including a fitted grey jacket according to the newspaper, replied: “Yes.” Judge Marron then said: “I entirely understand that, but in this particular case it is desirable that your face is exposed, so I’m going to invite you to stand down. I hope you understand.” More»
