Big holes, little holes, ragged walls: A seemingly infinite number of shells have ripped through Kabul's neoclassical Darul Aman Palace, but they never brought it down. A sand-colored structural skeleton behind scaffolding gives a small hint of the once-opulent palace's former splendor. "We can do this" is written in enormous letters on a sign that hangs from the scaffolding on the three-story building. Twenty-six-year-old Wazhma Kurram sees the statement from far away as she arrives to work each day by bus or taxi. One-fourth of the architects and engineers who have spent the past year working to restore the former parliament are women; their large contingent is immediately conspicuous. Afghan President Ashraf Ghani had insisted upon the quota to ensure that women were represented in the reconstruction. Behind the walls of the palace, there are few conflicts between genders. Still, Kurram is often harassed on her way to work. Men on the street often insult her. Independent career … [Read more...] about Afghan women work to rebuild Kabul’s Darul Aman Palace

A landmark corruption trial against Spain's Princess Cristina and her husband began Monday as media outlets from around the world descended on a makeshift court house in Palma de Mallorca. The 50-year-old is the first member of Spain's royal family to face criminal charges since the monarchy was restored following the 1975 death of dictatorial General Francisco Franco. Chief among the allegations is that her husband, former Olympic handball medalist Inaki Urdangarin, embezzled public funds through a foundation he once chaired. Through the Noos Institute, a charitable organization, based in Palma, which Urdangarin founded and chaired from 2004 to 2006, the 47-year-old and his former business partner Diego Torres are accused of embezzling 6.2 million euros ($6.7 million) in public funds paid by two regional governments to the organization to stage sporting and other events. He is accused of using his royal connections to secure inflated contracts without competing bids and … [Read more...] about Spain’s Princess Cristina faces corruption charges in case full of palace intrigue
Juncker (pictured above), who has served for 18 years, called an early election in July amid accusations he failed to adequately monitor the actions of the State Intelligence Service (SREL). His Christian Socialist Party - in power since 1974 - won 23 seats in Sunday's elections, ahead of 13 each for the Liberal Party and the Socialist Party and six for the Greens Party. The royal palace responded on Friday by calling Liberal leader Xavier Bettel to a meeting with Grand Duke Henri, who urged Bettel to form a coalition with the Socialists and the Greens in a bid to reach a slim 32-seat majority in the 60-seat parliament. The three parties have already said they are willing to form a coalition, putting the long respective reigns of Juncker and the CSV in jeopardy. "Having taken note of the willingness [of the three parties] to form a new government, [Grand Duke Henri] has tasked Bettel with forming the new government," a palace statement said. The potential alliance has been called a … [Read more...] about Juncker sidelined as Luxembourg’s royal palace steps in
