EU trade commissioner Cecilia Malmstroem said Monday that the EU would "retaliate" if the US imposes controls on European steel. "Exactly how and when I will not answer now, but we are making preparations," Malmstroem told reporters.

A previous camp was evacuated last year.

Germany's chancellor, Angela Merkel, said on Monday that she "hopes" that the German parliament will debate gay marriage, and that a vote could serve as a "question of conscience," as her christian-democratic party, the CDU, would not give instructions to its MPs. The CDU, the main party in the German parliament, has been opposed so far to gay marriage. Germany's elections will take place in September.
