EU to fund embryo cell research
Ministers from European Union member states have agreed to continue funding research on embryonic stem cells.
Some countries oppose the research, but scientists say the cells are the key to treating diseases such as Alzheimer's and Parkinson's.
Last week US President George W Bush used his veto for the first time to limit federal funding for the research.
The EU ministers agreed not to fund activities that destroyed human embryos but said other research could continue.
