7. Meloni gets to work picking right-wing govt for Italy

• Italian far-right leader Giorgia Meloni and her allies began on September 27, 2022 what is likely to be a weeks-long process of forming a new government, with crises looming on several fronts.
• Meloni`s post-fascist Brothers of Italy party, which triumphed in Sunday`s elections, has no experience of power but must assemble a cross-party team to tackle sky-high inflation and energy prices, and relations with a wary Europe.
• The 45-year-old is hoping to be the first woman to lead Italy as prime minister, but needs her allies, Matteo Salvini`s far-right League party and former Silvio Berlusconi`s Forza Italia, for a majority in parliament

8. Blasts, leaks in Russian pipelines alarm Europe; foul play feared

• Explosions were recorded before mysterious leaks in two Baltic Sea gas pipelines linking Russia and Europe, seismologists said on September 27, 2022, raising suspicions of sabotage amid tensions over Moscow`s war in Ukraine.
• Photos taken by the Danish military showed large masses of bubbles on the surface of the water emanating from the three leaks in Sweden and Denmark`s economic zones north of Poland, from 200 to 1,000 metres (656 feet to 0.62 miles) in diameter.

9. Catalonia seeks new independence referendum

• Catalonia will push the Spanish government for a new agreement on holding a binding referendum on the region`s potential independence that would be recognised both by Spain and the international community, its separatist leader said on September 27, 2022.

• The so-called `clarity agreement` proposal comes shortly before the fifth anniversary of Catalonia`s unauthorised independence referendum and at a critical time for its separatist movement, which is marred by divisions between moderates and radicals that have threatened to fracture the coalition government
