Council to Revoke Handke's Prize

The city council in Düsseldorf, Germany, will vote next week to override the jury that chose the avant-garde Austrian author Peter Handke to receive the $50,000 Heinrich Heine Prize for literature, Agence France-Presse reported yesterday. Karin Trepke, a Green Party member of the council, said it planned to exercise its right to overrule the jury. Mr. Handke has been under fire for his sympathies for the Yugoslav leader Slobodan Milosevic, who died in March in The Hague while on trial for genocide and war crimes.
