Portugal's President Marcelo Rebelo de Sousa has vetoed for the second time a law allowing terminally ill people to seek assistance from a doctor to end their lives, effectively postponing the legislation until a new parliament is elected. The veto, announced late on Monday, cited language used in the bill to describe terminal conditions that Rebelo de Sousa said was sometimes contradictory and needed to be clarified.

Counter-terror police are warning all parents to be vigilant as figures show a rise in the number of children being arrested for far-right terrorism offences.
