    The Duke of Edinburgh, 86, left King Edward VII Hospital in Beaumont Street, central London at 1.30pm. He has been relieved of his engagements for tomorrow - a council meeting and a dinner to mark the 60th anniversary of the establishment of the State of Israel, both at Windsor - which will carry on without him. Prince Philip was admitted to hospital on Thursday after his health deteriorated having caught a heavy cold. He played a full role in the recent state visit by President Nicolas Sarkozy of France but was forced to pull out of a memorial service for Sir Edmund Hillary on Wednesday.

    A mass protestation rally took place today in the center of Paris. Protestors were asking for the release of Colombian presidential candidate Ingrid Betancourt who was abducted by Colombian rebels while she was travelling to the city of San Vicente del Caguan for a human rights rally. Carla Bruni-Sarkozy and the president of Argentina Christina Kissinger were present as well as many members of the French government among whom foreign affairs minister Bernard Kouchner. According to estimations, 5.000 protestors took part in the rally to support Betancourt and her family. A French medical mission is still waiting to hear whether Colombian FARC (Revolutionary Armed Forces of Colombia) guerrillas will let them treat the hostage.

But we are interested in and we fight to get on with people who may have voted in favor of PASOK or New Democracy who they now see a new hope to be given birth by the left side of the political life of this country" he stressed. SYN president called on the government to make clear to the Greek people if it has offered exchanges for the veto it imposed in FYROMs invitation to enter NATO, if it has stepped back in issues of national dominance in the basis of Sudan, if it has accepted to send more army in borders and if it has made commendatory statements regarding the US anti missile shield.
