German MPs are expected to vote to legalise same-sex marriage, days after Chancellor Angela Merkel dropped her opposition to the idea.
The reform would give gay men and lesbians full marital rights, and allow them to adopt children.
At present, German same-sex couples are limited to civil unions.
On Monday Mrs Merkel, who previously opposed a vote on gay marriage, said she would allow MPs from her CDU party to "follow their conscience".

Uber is being sued over lack of wheelchair-accessible cars in Washington

Equal Rights Center, a nonprofit civil rights organization, filed a lawsuit against Uber for not making its service accessible for disabled customers in Washington D.C.

The lawsuit alleges that Uber is violating both the Americans with Disabilities Act, which requires transportation companies to offer equal access to all riders, and D.C.'s Human Rights Act.

Uber's fleet of 30,000 vehicles in D.C. isn't capable of servicing passengers that have non-foldable wheelchairs, according to the suit. And even if they are, Uber provides no way for drivers to indicate that in the app. 

And UberWAV, Uber's option for handicapped riders in D.C., falls short in its service, the suit claims.

The Equal Rights Center said it is only suing Uber, not its competitors, for now.

Reacting to the lawsuit, a spokesperson for Uber said "we take this issue seriously and are committed to continued work with the District, our partners, and stakeholders toward expanding transportation options and freedom of movement for all residents throughout the region".

Cladding 'changed to cheaper version'

Memorial wall for Grenfell Tower
Cladding fitted to Grenfell Tower during its refurbishment was changed to a cheaper version, documents obtained by the BBC suggest.
Documents show the aluminium cladding was less fire-resistant than zinc, thereby saving nearly £300,000.
The cladding - fitted as part of the refurbishment of the west London tower - is thought to have contributed to the fire that killed at least 80 people.
There is no suggestion a deliberate decision was made to cut fire safety.

Police Raids Messi's Wedding Venue

Police raid site of Lionel Messi's wedding two days before ceremony

Police and tax inspectors have carried out a court-ordered search at a casino attached to the hotel that is preparing to host the wedding of Lionel Messi, authorities said, though they denied any connection with the coming nuptials.

The Wednesday raid at the City Center hotel and casino complex in Rosario, Argentina, was authorised by federal judge Marcelo Baylaque amid an investigation of alleged tax evasion by magnate Cristobal Lopez.

Messi's wedding to longtime partner Antonella Roccuzzo is set to take place on Friday at the same complex, but officials said the attached hotel was not part of the raid.

"We are working exclusively with the casino," said Carlos Vaudagna, the regional director of the Federal Administration of Public Revenue, told EFE. "The hotel is not involved and this will not affect Friday's event in any way.

"It was just a coincidence that we came a few days prior [to the wedding], we had the judicial request a month ago but were just granted permission now."

Vaudagna also said he estimated that authorities would have seized all they needed for the probe by the end of the day and would not disturb the wedding preparations.

Judge Juan Galvan Greenway is in charge of the case, which is related to alleged kickbacks for public works projects and an alleged $1.8m in money laundering.

"We came to seize video monitoring tape related to subjects who we believe in 2015 received financial gain or earnings of more than $6,000 in daily [casino] winnings," Vaudagna said.

He said that one bettor reportedly won more than 48 times, with more than $100,000 in winnings. Another casino in Buenos Aires as well as a racetrack had also been raided last week as part of the probe.

Lopez was indicted on corruption-related charges last year along with 16 others as part of an ongoing probe into the finances of the administration under Cristina Fernandez de Kirchner, the former president of Argentina from 2007-15.

”How can anyone describe Nigeria as being free when every single security and intelligence agency in the nation except for the Navy is headed by a northern Muslim?

”How can anyone describe Nigeria as being free when there are NO Christian commanders (i.e. those that have operational control over troop deployments) in charge of STRATEGIC commands in the Nigerian Army today?

”​How can anyone describe Nigeria as being free when there was an attempt by President Buhari to quietly pass a law that will give large tracts of land to Fulani herdsmen in every state of the Federation so that they can infiltrate, settle down in, breed with and eventually overwhelm and take over all the communities in which they were given that land.

”How can anyone describe Nigeria as being free when the Arewa Youths can send an open letter to the Acting President describing the entire Igbo race as ingrates who have “not learnt their lessons from the past” and who “ought to be thrown out of the north” and “out of Nigeria?”

”How can anyone describe Nigeria as being free when the the Northern Youth Leaders Forum (NYLF) can tell the Federal Government that “Nigeria will boil”, that there will be “a crisis that will spiral beyond control if the Arewa youths are arrested” and that “the Presidency will not be allowed to go to the south under any circumstances in 2019?”
