An update from London on some of the international stories we expect to develop on Tuesday:
BP losses - BP posted a massive quarterly loss of $17.2 billion Tuesday due to costs stemming from the Gulf of Mexico oil disaster. BP said it took a pretax charge of $32.2 billion in the quarter related to the oil spill, the worst in U.S. history. That charge includes the $20 billion fund the company agreed to set up in June to cover damages related to the spill.
Serbia extraditionÂ - A London court is expected to decide Tuesday whether former Bosnian Vice President EjupÂ Ganic should be extradited to Belgrade after spending four months under house arrest in London. He is wanted in Serbia for conspiracy to murder in breach of the Geneva Conventions.
Catholic report - The National Catholic Safeguarding Commission releases its annual report on Tuesday. The commission is the independent body that sets the strategic direction of the Church's safeguarding policies for children and vulnerable adults.
Iran sanctions - Iran was defiant Tuesday after the European Union approved new sanctions against the country, saying the measures are "ineffective and unconstructive."
India and Myanmar - India has given a red-carpet welcome to the top leader of Myanmar's military junta, currently on a five-day visit aimed at strengthening diplomatic and economic ties between the neighboring countries.
London Olympics - Tuesday marks two years to go until the London 2012 Olympics, the start of what organizing committee chief Sebastian Coe calls "the killing zone" - the final stretch of an 800-meter race where you can see the finish line but still have to work to get there.
