In world news, UN envoy Kofi Annan says the Syrian government has agreed to his peace deadline of April 10. Al Jazeera reports, Annan told the UN Security Council the Syrian government agreed to halt all hostilities within 48 hours of the deadline.

 

In Europe, the president of Hungary has resigned following a plagiarism scandal. Pal Schmitt was stripped of his PhD last week, and protesters called for him to step down. Here’s euronews with the details.

 

“After conducting an investigation, the university found 180 pages of Schmitt’s 215-page dissertation were partially identical to another work, and 17 pages were completely identical.”

 

In U.S. news, the Supreme Court has ruled jailers can strip search people arrested for minor offenses. The case involved a New Jersey man who was wrongly arrested for a fine he’d already paid. He argued the strip search he endured violated his civil rights. Here’s CNN.

 

“Albert Florence claimed that there was no reasonable suspicion to subject him to a disgusting ordeal. But justices ruled that giving low-risk inmates a pass puts everybody at greater risk.”

 

And in business news, Avon has rejected a massive buyout offer from beauty products maker Coty, Inc. Avon says the offer, the biggest buyout offer so far this year, was just a way for Coty to get a look at their books. Here’s MSNBC.

 

“They’re not calling it a hostile offer, but the Avon board has turned it down and they’re coming back and bringing it directly to the shareholders. If the deal were to go through, this would be a $10 billion deal.”
