A supporter of US Democratic presidential candidate Bernie Sanders arrives for primary night rally in Concord, New Hampshire, on February 9, 2016Political novice Donald Trump and self-described democratic socialist Bernie Sanders won New Hampshire's presidential primaries Tuesday, US media projected, turning the American political establishment on its head early in the long nominations battle. With less than 10 percent of precincts reporting, CNN, Fox and other networks called the race for the Republican frontrunner Trump and for Sanders, who is battling Hillary Clinton for the Democratic nomination. Thank you, New Hampshire!" tweeted Sanders, who is treated like a local hero in this state that borders Vermont, which he represents in the US Senate.

Rapporteur of the Constitution reform bill of the French National Assembly, Dominique Raimbourg, speaks during the debate on Article 2, a controversial amendment to the constitution, at the French National Assembly in Paris on February 9, 2016Lawmakers in France's lower house of parliament has narrowly voted through a highly controversial proposal to amend the constitution to strip people convicted of terrorist offences of their French nationality. The measure, passed by 162 votes to 148 with 22 abstentions, followed weeks of debate after it was proposed as part of a set of measures by President Francois Hollande in the wake of the jihadist attacks in Paris on November 13 that killed 130 people. The nationality measure has strong public support but has deeply divided Hollande's ruling Socialist Party.
