The 15-nation European Union decided on Friday to recall its ambassadors from Belarus amid a growing row over an elite housing complex some of them share with President Alexander G. Lukashenko, a senior diplomat said. The move comes two days after Lukashenko's government reached a reported compromise with the ambassadors allowing diplomats to stay if they are ready to face some "inconvenience." But on Friday, water and electricity to the compound were shut down--surprising the diplomats.

French President Jacques Chirac has asked his government to refer Hewlett-Packard Co.'s plan to cut jobs in France to the European Union, government officials said Tuesday. "On the question of the announcement of the reduction in [the number of] workers at the Hewlett-Packard group, he asked the government to pursue all the efforts underway to respond," a source close to Chirac said. "Given the impact of this plan throughout Europe, he asked the government to refer it to the European Commission."

In a nation that has long prided itself on public protest, the convulsions of outrage have quieted for the moment. But anger still is simmering in the streets. Greeks are pledging to keep up strikes and street demonstrations against the government and the austerity measures it passed to secure $146 billion in international bailout cash. Their indignation is rooted not so much in the painful prospect of slashed pensions and salary cuts, which opinion polls indicate will be grudgingly accepted, as in a general sense of betrayal by politicians they regard as having glided through the crisis with impunity.
