The Brief from Brussels: EU commissioner under fire over 'racist' remarks

This is the Brief from Brussels, a daily roundup of the top stories from Europe’s de facto political capital.

In this edition: EU’s Oettinger is under fire for a speech to German business leaders; Kristalina Georgieva quits for the World Bank, and an EU ethics probe rules that Jose Manuel Barroso broke no rules in taking a job with a major US investment bank.

Every story can be told in many ways: see the perspectives from Euronews journalists in our other language teams.
