Overview

UK Prime Minister Boris Johnson would hold a general election in the "days after" the country has left the European Union on Oct. 31 if he is forced to go to the polls should a parliamentary no-confidence vote succeed against his government, according to senior aides to the prime minister.

British train operators will continue participating in the Europe-wide Interrail pass, little more than 24 hours after announcing they would be leaving the scheme.

Fabrizio Saccomanni, chairman of Italy's UniCredit SpA and a former Italian economy minister, died suddenly on Thursday at the age of 76. (Compiled by Bengaluru newsroom; Editing by Sandra Maler)
