The police acknowledges "problems" in its relationship with the Corruption Eradication Commission (KPK), but says it is working with the agency to tackle graft. The prospect of a greater role for the military in civilian...

New parties shake Spain's political system in local vote

That was significantly down from the 65 percent of the vote the pair gathered in elections four...
