Baltic Coalition Collapse

TALLINN, Estonia () -- The coalition government of the Baltic state of Estonia was close to collapse Monday as its two leading parties faced off over a controversial cooperation deal with the leading opposition party.

The right-wing Reform Party gave its government partner the Coalition Party a deadline of Nov. 20 to cancel a deal it signed last week with the leading opposition party, the Center Party, or it will consider leaving the government.
