EU court orders Poland to stop logging primeval forest nowBy Gabriela Baczynska and Agnieszka Barteczko BRUSSELS/WARSAW (Reuters) - The European Union's top court ordered Poland on Friday to immediately halt large-scale logging in an ancient protected forest, one of many cases that has pitted the nationalist, eurosceptic government in Warsaw against the bloc. The EU's executive Commission earlier this year sued Poland at the European Court of Justice (ECJ) over logging in the Bialowieza forest, a UNESCO World Heritage site. Straddling the border between Poland and Belarus, it is one of Europe's last primeval forests and home to its largest herd of European bison as well as unique birds and insects.
