KABUL, Afghanistan (AP) -- Afghanistan's government has offered the new Taliban leader a choice: make peace or face the same fate as his predecessor, killed in a U.S. drone strike last week.

(Vatican Radio) Russian President Vladimir Putin has warned that Russia's military will target Romania and Poland in response to a US-built missile defense system in the region. He made the comments during his two-day trip to Greece which ended Saturday with a visit to a Russian monastery. Listen to Stefan Bos' report: Putin used his first visit to a European Union country this year to condemn western policies towards Moscow, describing a newly expanded American missile defense system as a threat to his country's security - and vowing to retaliate.Standing next to Greek prime minister Alexis Tsipras, the Russian leader said Moscow had in his words "no choice" but to target Romania because itrecently opened a missile defense base as part of the system, and Poland, which wants to do so within two years.Putin warned especially citizens in Romania that they will face uncertain times because of the missile shield, which will be operated by...
(Vatican Radio) This weekend here in Rome, the Church is marking the Extraordinary Jubilee Year of Mercy in a special way with the Jubilee of Deacons. As their very title suggests – taken as it is from the Greek word for “servant”, diakonos – Deacons are ordained to a ministry of service in the Church: they proclaim the Good News liturgically, they assist priests at the Altar, and they preach to the faithful on matters pertaining to authentic Christian living. Deacons also bring the Blessed Sacrament to the sick in hospital and to the housebound: they visit prisoners, offering them both companionship and counsel; they baptize, receive the marriage vows of couples entering Holy Matrimony, and they pray for the dead.Two Deacons from the United States, the Rev. Messrs. Doug Breckenridge and Greg Kandra, visited Vatican Radio during the course of their pilgrimage to celebrate the Jubilee of Deacons, and spoke with us about the joys and challenges of t...

(Vatican Radio) Hungary says it will soon open a third transit zone on its border with Serbia where refugees can apply for asylum amid concerns about a new influx of people fleeing war and poverty. The announcement came after the United Nations refugee agency urged the two countries to find a human solution to the situation of refugees camping in dire conditions at the border between the two countries.Listen to Stefan Bos' report: The U.N. refugee agency, UNHCR, said Hungary and Serbia should care for the hundreds of refugees who are stuck at the border, waiting to enter the European Union. The UNHCR Representative in Serbia, Hans Schodder, visited the small tent city Friday that has formed on the Serbian side of the razor-wire fence Hungary put up last year to keep out migrants.He expressed concern that the estimated 300 people are camping in an area without toilets and running water, relying on aid groups for food and water.
