  • And another final: the Dutch hockey players will take on Germany in the European Championship final at 12.30 pm. Yesterday the hockey men set a good example by winning the European Championship final against Germany.

What did you miss?

Azerbaijan has handed over 15 Armenian prisoners in exchange for a map showing the location of nearly 100,000 landmines. The mines are in a region handed over by Armenia as part of an agreement reached after last year’s war.

The exchange came about after mediation by the US and the EU. Azerbaijan and Armenia have been arguing over Nagorno-Karabakh for decades. The disputed region officially belongs to Azerbaijan, but is mainly inhabited by Armenians and is administered independently.
