A man who lost his son in the Northern Ireland conflict wants to block the UK's exit from the EU. He argues Brexit could undermine the Good Friday peace agreement, which is based on European law, and has taken his case to Britain's Supreme Court.
After 20 years of the Good Friday deal, peace in Northern Ireland remains fragile. Former Irish prime minister Bertie Ahern says cool heads are needed - but walked out over questions on the scandal that ended his tenure.
The House of Lords, the upper house of parliament, has inflicted two serious defeats on Theresa May's government at it attempts to get its EU withdrawal bill passed into law. More defeats are likely.
The Lords may save the day and the customs union. Meanwhile, the British Empire is returning, but it won't strike back, and Boris Johnson is looking to Hungary's Viktor Orban for an ally on Brexit.
The Good Friday Agreement brought an end to Northern Ireland's "troubles." But the deal failed to offer a blueprint for dealing with a past that casts a shadow over the present, reports Peter Geoghegan from Belfast.
