    BERLIN (AP) — Scientists say they have found rare evidence of a prehistoric massacre in Europe after discovering a 7,000-year-old mass grave with skeletal remains from some of the continent's first farmers bearing terrible wounds. Archaeologists who painstakingly examined the bones of some 26 men, women and children buried in the Stone Age grave site at Schoeneck-Kilianstaedten, near Frankfurt, say they found blunt force marks to the head, arrow wounds and deliberate efforts to smash at least half of the victims' shins — either to stop them from running away or as a grim message to survivors.

    US President Bush got a raucous welcome in Georgia on Tuesday. But he also got a hand grenade thrown at him. Why was security so tight when he visited Germany in February and so lax in Georgia, one of Europe's furthest outposts? Plus: if France doesn't torpedo the EU constitution, Holland might; and can Cannes survive without Michael Moore? US President George W. Bush and Georgian President Mikhail Saakashvili play to the roaring crowd in Georgia's Freedom Square unaware that someone had lobbed an inactive grenade in their direction.

    For his 50th birthday, a wealthy German placed a full-page ad in a left-leaning newspaper thanking America for 50 years of freedom and peace. He says the ad and the response it generated were well worth it. For Manfred Petri, an independently wealthy former businessman from the Bavarian town of Hof, the day George W. Bush arrived in Mainz for his visit to Germany was a day to celebrate. It was February 23, 2005, which also happened to be Manfred Petri's 50th birthday. The day began with breakfast in bed, which would be followed later by a family celebration with...

    US leader fails to win over Germans By Rhea Wessel FOR THE STRAITS TIMES FRANKFURT - CITIZENS in Mainz and Frankfurt gave a collective sigh of relief last week when US President George W. Bush left Germany. It was not just the inconvenience: blocked autobahns and a clogged airport. Germans, in general, are sceptical about a love affair between German Chancellor Gerhard Schroeder and Mr Bush. 'They smiled a lot for the camera, and since there were lots of cameras, they smiled all the time,' said Frankfurt finance worker Claudia Ehler. Few Germans seriously believe the two leaders have put...

    MAINZ, Germany — Thousands of people who gathered Wednesday to protest President Bush as he visited with German Chancellor Gerhard Schroeder had a few choice words for the president. Under a light snow, protesters packed a square on Kaiserstrasse in the heart of the government district to object to Bush’s foreign policy. They carried signs and made speeches lambasting the administration on a wide array of issues, from the Iraq war and prisoner treatment at the U.S. detention facility in Guantanamo Bay, Cuba, to the U.S. refusal to sign the Kyoto Protocol on climate change. “He thinks he is the...

    While ABC and NBC stressed the "united" front against Iran presented by President Bush and German Chancellor Gerhard Schroeder, CBS's John Roberts only grudgingly acknowledged that Bush and Schroeder "papered over their differences long enough today to present a united front against Iran." Roberts asserted that Bush's "hard line" on Iran "has the majority of Germans believing that Mr. Bush will take military action." Citing Bush's statement that "all options are on the table," over video of anti-Bush protesters and their signs, Roberts insisted Bush's "statement was jarring to European nations, who are just now getting over the Iraq War."...

The official rally, which was twice as big as expected, never got within earshot of President Bush, but a small group of protestors rushed toward his car as he left to visit a U.S. base in nearby Wiesbaden.

    MAINZ, Germany — President Bush (search) and German Chancellor Gerhard Schroeder (search) agreed Wednesday to turn down the volume on arguments about Iraq and Iran, demanding in unison that Tehran abandon its nuclear ambitions.

Still, Bush emphasized he did not want to harm "a close relationship with Vladimir." Bush raced through...
