Tens of thousands of believers attended an open-air mass led by Pope Francis at the Sumuleu Ciuc shrine on June 1. The pilgrimage site is part of the Romanian city of Miercurea Ciuc, which is mainly inhabited by ethnic Hungarians. A large portion of this minority identify as Roman Catholics in a country that is predominantly Orthodox Christian.
Three consecutive explosions shook the same area of the Afghan capital, Kabul, early in the morning of June 2. The first blast occurred after a bomb was attached to the underside of a minibus carrying female university students. At least one person was reported killed. The attacks came a day after Taliban militants rejected calls for a truce on an upcoming Islamic holiday.
Thousands marched in Belgrade on June 1 to protest against the Serbian government, in rallies that have taken place every Saturday since December. The rallies began in reaction to an assault on Serbian Left opposition party leader Borko Stefanovic. The demonstrators soon added more demands, including a call for the resignation of Serbian President Aleksandar Vucic~RadioFreeEurope/RadioLiberty
