Ousted Myanmar leader Aung San Suu Kyi is the daughter of the country’s independence hero, Gen.

THE HAGUE, Netherlands (AP) — A Dutch appeals court upheld Tuesday a lower court's decision to throw out a civil case against Israel's defense minister and another former senior military officer over their roles in a deadly 2014 airstrike.
