Austria’s Kurz seeks to oust far-right interior minister

Austrian Chancellor Kurz proposed on Monday sacking his interior minister, escalating a battle triggered when a video sting took down the longtime leader of his far-right coalition partners. Kurz ended his coalition with the nationalist Freedom Party (FPO) on Saturday after leader Heinz-Christian Strache was caught offering to fix state contracts for a woman posing as a Russian oligarch’s niece.
