Gay marriage move a giant step for Switzerland

  Gay marriage move a giant step for Switzerland While apartment-hunting with his partner 30 years ago, Thierry Delessert was repeatedly asked whether they were cousins, or gay. He knew the latter answer would automatically see their application thrown out. The 56-year-old historian still recalls his run-ins with "suspicious" real estate agents in Switzerland, where police in some places were still keeping registers of homosexuals. Three decades later, in a referendum on Sunday, the wealthy Alpine nation looks set to allow same-sex couples to marry, and grant them the same rights as their heterosexual counterparts.

According to police sources cited by the local Göteborgs-Posten log, an explosive machine may have been placed in front of one of the entrance doors. The fire then took in several stairwells. "An explosion in a dwelling zone, or an explosion in general, is generally not of natural origin", especially since the building is not fueled in gas, has argued the chief of operations Rescue, John Pile. Thomas Fuxborg, the police spokesman, abounded: For now, the authorities do not see any natural explanation for the explosion. The technical survey can only begin once the fire is completely off.

In the meantime, the police focuses on a question: can there be among the residents or traders on the ground floor a person who would have been targeted by a voluntary criminal act? Sweden has been sentenced for several years to counter criminal gangs, which has translated into a high number of deadly fusillages , explosions and account regulations in a country elsewhere rather peaceful . Last year, more than a hundred detonations have been identified, and 102 other incidents about explosion or preparations attempts. Few of these things are elucidated.
