Prime Minister Sharon of Israel has put off plans to visit Belgium because of a case in the works there that alleges Sharon allowed a massacre of Palestinians 20 years ago. And several countries want to question former US Secretary of State Henry Kissinger about the US role in Chile 25 years ago. Kissinger says he's not a criminal. (7:30)

Protesters, led by ethnic Berbers, accuse the government of anti-democratic practices and failing to take action to deal with the country's economic and social ills. (6:00)
