EU OPENS OFFICE IN BAGHDAD



BRUSSELS - The European Union - narrowing the gap with Washington over Iraq - will open a Baghdad office to run a democracy-building program that will train hundreds of Iraqi judges and prosecutors, sources said on Friday.

They said the EU foreign ministers will announce the measure Monday, one day before US President George W. Bush holds a hectic day of negotiations with European leaders at both the NATO and European Union head offices.

Better later, then never.
