Kenya targets 'fish thieves' with new coastguard

Kenya's president has launched the country's first coastguard to protect and monitor its territorial waters.It will guard against illegal fishing, which President Uhuru Kenyatta says costs Kenya about $100m (£78m) a year.It is also intended to secure territorial waters against smuggling and drug trafficking.Until now, Kenya's maritime security depended solely on the Navy. Authorities say it will now be free to focus on security and military affairs.But Kenya's coastguard currently only has one boat, which means the new force will still rely heavily on the Navy until it finds its footing, says the BBC's Ferdinand Omondi in the capital, Nairobi.The...

Berlin's economic power creates 'new fear of Germany' across EU

"I’m not so much afraid of German power; its German inactivity I’m starting to fear," said Radoslaw Sikorski, then Poland’s foreign minister, while speaking in Berlin in 2011. You would never have heard a sentence like that before 1990, says German historian Andreas Rödder — certainly not coming from Poland. Poland's former top diplomat Sikorski: "It's German inactivity I'm starting to fear" The national-conservative PiS party is now in power in Poland, and the words coming out of Warsaw are very different these days. But the ambivalent relationship between Germany and its eastern European neighbor, expressed by Sikorski back then,...
