DEATHS ELSEWHERE

Wilfried Martens, who led nine Belgian governments and the European Union's Christian Demo­crat group, has died. He was 77.

Martens died Thursday at his home surrounded by close relatives, the family said in a statement Thursday. It did not provide details about why he died, but heart problems had long affected Martens' health.

Leading members of his party and opposition lauded Martens as a tireless leader who kept his nation of Dutch- and French-speakers together while giving the two linguistic regions ever more autonomy. Prime Minister Elio Di Rupo, a French-speaking socialist said, "Belgium lost one of its most prominent politicians."

He led governments with socialists, liberal and grand coalitions in the 1980s and early 1990s and proved capable of keeping the factions in the nation together.

He also helped found the European People's Party and led the EU's Christian Demo­crat group for almost two decades before asking last week to be relieved from the job.

As a leader of a small nation of 10 million, he worked for more European integration among nations based on consensus politics.

EU Commission President Jose Manuel Barroso recognized "his personal efforts to integrate parties from the newest democracies in Central and Eastern Europe."

Other political leaders also paid tribute to him Thursday.

The president of the European parliament, Martin Schulz, called him "a great statesman of Belgium, Europe and an outstanding leader in the European Parliament."
