Britain's Prime Minister David Cameron delivers a speech on immigration at the Home Office in LondonBy Kylie MacLellan and Adrian Croft RIGA (Reuters) - British Prime Minister David Cameron on Friday began his campaign to persuade European leaders to make changes to the European Union before he holds a referendum to decide whether Britain should stay in or quit the bloc. Cameron was due to hold talks with European Council President Donald Tusk and a handful of EU government heads on the sidelines of a European Union summit with six ex-Soviet republics in Latvia. There were no formal meetings planned with EU power brokers Germany and France but Cameron will travel to Berlin and Paris next week for talks with Chancellor Angela Merkel and President Francois Hollande, British officials said.

The High Court in Seoul ruled that Cho Hyun-Ah, who had been in jail since her arrest in December, was not guilty of the most serious charge of altering an aircraft's route while in flight. "The accused had no intention of hampering the safe operation of the plane," High Court judge Kim Sang-Hwan said, handing down a reduced sentence of 10 months, suspended for two years.
