- Germany's Maas skeptical on UK-Ireland talks solving Brexit deadlock
German Foreign Minister Heiko Maas said on Sunday it was unclear how any talks between Britain and Ireland on resolving the question of the Irish backstop could help the European Union's deal with London on Brexit. British Prime Minister Theresa May is to set out her plans for Brexit on Monday after UK lawmakers rejected her deal with the EU last week, throwing the process into disarray. Asked by ZDF television about media reports on May's possible talks with the Irish government, Maas said the idea seemed "creative", but it was unclear how it would work.
- Colombia's Transandino oil pipeline hit by bomb attack: Ecopetrol
Colombian state-run oil company Ecopetrol SA said on Sunday a bomb attack on the Transandino pipeline caused spillage in southwestern Narino close to the border with Ecuador.

Colombia's southern region has extensive coca crops and laboratories to produce cocaine.

The ELN frequently attacks oil and energy infrastructure in the area.
