Nearly four years ago, Austria’s populist far-right Freedom Party was ousted from the national coalition government over a major corruption scandal, and voters punished it at the ballot box. But the party’s nearly double-digit gains in Sunday’s regional election in the province of Lower Austria confirmed that the Freedom Party has regained its previous momentum. The party has led national polls since this fall. Experts say the party has managed these gains by criticizing European Union sanctions against Russia, stressing the impact of inflation and rising energy prices, expressing skepticism about vaccines and pandemic-related restrictions, and highlighting its hard line positions on migration issues.

Official figures show that German beer sales rose in 2022 after COVID-19 restrictions weighed on brewers in the previous two years. But the long-term trend remains downward and the World Cup soccer tournament in Qatar didn’t get the taps flowing. The Federal Statistical Office said Wednesday that German-based breweries and distributors sold about 8.8 billion liters (2.3 billion gallons) of beer last year. That's a 2.7% increase compared with 2021. Beer sales inside Germany  represent more than four-fifths of the total. They were up 4% to 7.2 billion liters (1.9 billion gallons). That was still 5% lower than in 2019 which was the last year before the pandemic. Exports were down overall.

A South Korean court has ruled that a 14th century Korean Buddhist statue should be sent back to a Japanese temple from where it was stolen in 2012.  The statue’s return has been put on hold for years after a South Korean temple claimed ownership of it, insisting that it was likely looted by medieval Japanese pirates before it ended up at the temple on Tsushima island, presumably in 1527. It and another statue were then stolen from that temple by thieves who attempted to sell them in South Korea. Officials at the South Korean temple say they will likely appeal the ruling to the Supreme Court.

Nashville Mayor John Cooper has announced that he will not run for reelection when his term expires later this year. Cooper, 66, made the announcement Tuesday. Cooper was first elected to the position in 2019, when he defeated former Mayor David Briley. His term has included overseeing the COVID-19 outbreak, the 2020 Christmas Day bombing and fatal tornadoes. He’s also helped finalize an agreement with software giant Oracle Corporation, which is set to build a $1.2 billion campus in east Nashville. Currently, candidates seeking to replace Cooper include Nashville council member Freddie O’Connell, Nashville at-large council member Sharon Hurt and former local government official Matt Wiltshire.

The longest battle of the war in Ukraine has turned Bakhmut into a ghost city. Despite bombing, shelling and trying to encircle the city since the summer, Russia’s forces have not conquered it. But their scorched-earth tactics made it impossible for civilians to have a life there. A Ukrainian soldier who arrived in the area in August saw Bakhmut gradually turned into a wasteland but says the city “has already become a symbol of Ukrainian invincibility.” Military analysts say the months of close combat have produced heavy casualties on both sides. For now, Bakhmut remains under Ukrainian control, albeit more as a fortress than the place where tourists used to sample sparkling wine.

An estimated 1 million joyous Congolese have poured into the capital’s main airport for Pope Francis’ first big Mass in Africa. Many spent the night on the vast airfields of Kinshasa’s Ndolo airport and passed the hours before Francis’ arrival singing and dancing. They cheered wildly when Francis began a languid loop around the airfields in his open-sided popemobile, some of them running alongside or waving flags. The Mass is Francis' first big event in Congo and comes on a day dedicated to his call for peace and forgiveness in a country wracked by decades of violence.
