Politics Breaking News: American College Student Killed in Egypt was Interning, Teaching English

by Wochit 1:13 mins

An American college student, Andrew Driscoll Pochter, 21 killed Friday during bloody protests in Egypt was in the country teaching young children English and bettering his Arabic speaking skills, family members said. Poland's Prime Minister Donald Tusk said the Polish government will run an economy balanced between fiscal discipline and economic expansion, signaling it will not sacrifice growth to spending cuts. The former communist country has posted nearly two decades of uninterrupted growth but its economy began to slow sharply last year and growth fell to near zero in the first quarter of 2013. Secretary of State John Kerry extended his trip to Israel amid speculation that he was closing in on a deal to revive the dormant Israeli-Palestinian peace talks. Reports in the Israeli news media have suggested that a meeting between Israeli and Palestinian officials under American and Jordanian auspices might be announced soon. But there has been no comment from United States officials.
