The German constitution dictates that a new parliament's first session has to take place no later than 30 days after the election. But the parties still can’t decide on who is sitting where.

But things have been complicated for the 19th Bundestag by the arrival in parliament of the Free Democrats (FDP) and the far-right Alternative for Germany. While no one is disputing that the AfD will be seated on the very right of the plenum, conflict has arisen over where the FDP should go.

As of September 30th, pest control company Anticimex had carried out around 41,000 call-outs in the hunt for rats across Sweden – a record for this time of the year. The firm expects their final numbers at the end of the year to be 57,000, which would be an increase of 264 percent compared to 2011.

"The problem we’re seeing now is just the tip of the iceberg, above all in the big cities. But in Stockholm for example we have housing construction and detonations for infrastructure that make the rats move in a way that you do not see otherwise, which means an increase in reports," Andreas Olsson, head of operations at Nomor told news agency TT.

Judges "ordered the suspension of the plenary that has been called for on Monday in the (Catalan) parliament" while it hears an appeal by rival Catalan politicians, a spokeswoman said. The court warned that any session carried out in defiance of its ban would be "null." It said the parliament's leaders could face criminal action if they ignore the court order.

Swedish residents may soon have to wait longer for their mail to arrive, according to the Expressen's daily. Under Sweden's current law, 85 percent of letters should reach the recipient within one working day, but if a proposal is confirmed, the majority of letters would take two days to arrive instead. Under the proposed law, the postal service would have two days to deliver 90 percent of first class mail.

Germany's second largest airline, Air Berlin, which has long battled for survival could soon cut around 1400 workers, according to a union paper seen by AFP. Some of them may be out of a job as early as the end of the month. The document said many of the cuts would hit the insolvent airline's ground personnel and administration staff, whose contracts could end by the end of the month or in February 2018.

Air Berlin employs about 8,600 people, including part-timers, and flights will end on October 28 at the latest. Subsidiary Niki, which flies to tourist destinations and regional airline LG Walter will continue to operate.

Catalan independence from Spain is in Britain’s best interests, particularly as it seeks to withdraw from the European Union, according to former UK diplomat Charles Drace-Francis. There are also a number of historic reasons for Britain to support the region’s bid for independence, he wrote in a letter to the Financial Times.
