REUTERS/Gonzalo Fuentes/File PhotoMILAN, June 15 (Reuters) - Stellantis (STLA.MI) will produce four medium-segment electric vehicles, of different brands, at its Melfi plant in southern Italy from 2024, the UILM union said on Tuesday. "Stellantis announced that Melfi would be the first plant in Italy to get new models, based on post-2022 business plan," UILM said in a statement after workers' representatives met with the carmaker at Italy's industry ministry in Rome. Stellantis Chief Executive Carlos Tavares has said the group would present its business plan late this year or in early 2022. Italy's Industry minister, Giancarlo Giorgetti, however, said in a separate statement after the meeting that Stellantis had yet to decide where it would build its third electric battery plant in Europe. The company is holding talks on this with Rome, as Italy is one of its main production hubs in Europe.

FILE PHOTO: The logo of an infrastructure group Atlantia is seen outside their headquarters, in Rome, Italy October 5, 2020. The agreement will bring 8 billion euros into Atlantia’s coffers, ending a dispute prompted by the 2018 deadly collapse of a motorway bridge run by Autostrade. The promise to pay dividends clarifies the group’s strategy after it said in March it would focus on cutting debt, which reached 41.9 billion euros in 2020. In addition, some of the proceeds from the Autostrade sale will go to reward investors. The group is considering a share buyback of between 1 billion euros and 2 billion euros to be launched once the sale of Autostrade is completed, it said.

Senior DOJ officials were deeply alarmed by top Trump officials' fixation on the election results. Senior officials at the Justice Department expressed deep frustration and alarm with top Trump officials' fixation on the election results in the final days of Donald Trump's presidency. Rosen forwarded Meadows' email to then-acting Deputy Attorney General Richard Donoghue, to which Donoghue replied, "Pure insanity." In another January 1 email, Meadows asked Rosen to have the acting assistant attorney general, Jeff Clark, to investigate "signature match anomalies" in Fulton County, Georgia. The emails published by the House Oversight Committee on Tuesday depict the most brazen effort yet by the Trump administration and top officials in the White House to reverse Trump's election defeat.

Continued burning of coal to generate power, for example, is widely accepted to be counterproductive to averting climate change’s worst effects. The G-7 nations did put to paper a pledge to halve their emissions by 2030 and zero them out from their economies by 2050. Yet, the careful phrasing from the G-7 leaders leaves wiggle room to keep financing coal plants that use carbon capture technology to sequester and store carbon dioxide emitted from burning coal. Perhaps the most glaring omission from the G-7 climate agreement, environmental advocates said, was the lack of any deadline for when nations will stop burning coal at home. Still, the G-7 summit in Cornwall may have been the last, best chance for the world’s wealthiest democracies to increase their leverage over China and other major emitters by uniting behind specific, joint goals well ahead of November.

A Chinese nuclear power plant is investigating an unusually high concentration of gases in one of its reactors, one of its owners said Monday. But the company is still calling for an extraordinary meeting of Taishan Nuclear Power Joint Venture's shareholders to decide on the next steps for the plant. Nuclear safety experts raised fears back in 2009, shortly after Taishan became operational, that China's headlong leap into nuclear energy could create safety shortcuts. China has 50 nuclear reactors in use with another 18 in construction, according to figures from the World Nuclear Association. By contrast the United States, has 93 nuclear reactors in use, but just two in production, and it has shut down 40.

Ryanair, Europe's largest budget airline, is expanding to more than 100 domestic routes this summer from 60 before the pandemic. It could move ahead of Alitalia on its home turf in the second quarter, according to consulting firm AlixPartners. "We are now moving to the next level" in Italy, by building outbound bases and moving into the "very significant" domestic market, Wizz Air CEO Jozsef Varadi told Reuters.

ROME — The Vatican has warned conservative American bishops to hit the brakes on their push to deny communion to politicians supportive of abortion rights — including President Biden, a faithful churchgoer and the first Roman Catholic to occupy the Oval Office in 60 years. But despite the remarkably public stop sign from Rome, the American bishops are pressing ahead anyway and are expected to force a vote on the communion issue at a remote meeting that starts on Wednesday. Some leading bishops, whose priorities clearly aligned with former President Donald J. Trump, now want to reassert the centrality of opposition to abortion in the Catholic faith and lay down a hard line — especially with a liberal Catholic in the Oval Office. The vote threatens to shatter the facade of unity with Rome, highlight the political polarization within the American church and set what church historians consider a dangerous precedent for bishops’ conferences across the globe.

A gunman opened fire killing two children and a elderly man in a town near Rome on Sunday, local authorities said, in a rare shooting incident in Europe. The attacker, a man in his 30s, was later found dead in a nearby house, having apparently killed himself as police were preparing to storm the building where he had barricaded himself in for hours. Italian media said the old man was hit while riding his bicycle and the two children were shot while they were playing outside in the town of Ardea, south of Rome, on Sunday morning. The ages of those killed were not clear. "We are deeply saddened for the death of the two children and the old man," Rome Mayor Virginia Raggi said, expressing the city's condolences to the Ardea community "in a terribile time of mourning".

The Pentagon Papers—a secret Defense Department review of America’s involvement in the Vietnam War—became public 50 years ago next week. The twists and turns surrounding the Pentagon Papers have a uniquely American flavor to them. The idea is descended from Roman ‘‘Qui Tam’’ laws, from a Latin phrase meaning “he who sues for himself does also for the king.” The Qui Tam laws served a policing function by giving informers a financial incentive to turn in wrong-doers. ”Anglo-Saxon law retained a crude version of Qui Tam. During World War II, the World Jewish Congress requested special permission from the government to ransom Jewish refugees in Romania and German-occupied France.

Italy kicked off the European Championship in emphatic style on Friday as they delivered a commanding performance to sweep past toothless Turkey 3-0 in the Stadio Olimpico and stamp their early authority on Group A. They were helped by a flat display from Turkey, who lost their fifth consecutive opening match of a European Championship finals and barely mustered a worthwhile attack all night. "We produced a good performance and I think we satisfied everyone, for the fans and all the Italians watching. There was only gloom in the visiting camp as veteran coach Senol Gunes, who led Turkey to third place at the 2002 World Cup, apologised for the performance.

ROME—Pope Francis told German Cardinal Reinhard Marx, who offered his resignation last month to take responsibility for the Catholic Church’s institutional failures to prevent clerical sex abuse, instead to remain in office and pursue reform. Cardinal Marx has been a leading figure in the Catholic Church’s response to abuse scandals and in the synod, which is debating major changes to Catholic life including the ordination of women and blessings of same-sex relationships. In a highly personal letter written in his native Spanish, Pope Francis addressed Cardinal Marx as “dear brother,” commended his courage and told him to continue the painful work of overhauling church institutions in the wake of the abuse crisis. “The reform in the Church has been made by men and women who were not afraid to enter into crisis and let themselves be reformed by the Lord. This is the only way, otherwise we will be nothing more than ‘reform ideologues’ who do not put their own flesh at stake,” the pope wrote in the letter, which was dated Thursday.
