The selection of the new "charge d'affaires ad interim" did not require the consent of the British government, a foreign ministry spokesperson told Reuters, which first reported the move earlier on Friday.

Delivering his judgment at Belfast High Court, Mr Justice Horner urged both the British and Irish governments to investigate the atrocity in August 1998.

European Central Bank President Christine Lagarde tamed the biggest rebellion of her tenure this week through compromise, persuasion, attrition - and a bit of German help, six sources with direct knowledge of the discussion said.
