"A left-wing, pro-Russia party captured the most votes in Latvia's parliamentary elections, marking a milestone for the tiny Baltic nation where parties distrustful of Russia have dominated all national elections since independence 20 years ago. With some 95 percent of ballots counted early Sunday, Harmony Center, a party catering to the country's ethnic Russian minority, had 29.2 percent of the vote." (09/18/11)
