Police continue their search for two suspects who robbed a woman at gunpoint Sunday night.
The incident happened in the 2900 block of Russell in South St. Louis. The victim told police two men approached her. One of the suspects pulled out a gun and demanded money. The woman says she threw down her purse and a bag of groceries and ran into her house.
Police say the men were wearing black jackets and one of them had on a stocking mask.
DAMASCUS, Syria (AP) — Syria's state media says Damascus welcomes the international community's nuclear deal with Iran, calling it a "historic agreement."
Iran agreed with the U.S. and five other world powers to a temporary freeze of its nuclear program for six months in exchange for limited and gradual sanctions relief.
Iran is a chief backer of President Bashar Assad's government.
Activists fear the deal will take international pressure off of Iran and embolden Syria's government to use an even harder hand to quash the 3-year-old uprising.
The Sunday report from SANA, a mouthpiece for the views of Assad's government, quoted an unnamed Foreign Ministry official.
SAN QUENTIN, Calif. (AP) — An innovative training program that prepares prison inmates for jobs in the tech sector has expanded.
The rigorous, six-month course was launched at San Quentin State Prison north of San Francisco by a pair of successful Silicon Valley entrepreneurs.
The program is "bootstrapping," as its organizers say, with just 12 graduates in its first two years, but a new session began this month at the Los Angeles Twin Towers Correctional Facility.
The program uses local experts as volunteer instructors, teaching carefully selected prisoners to design and launch technology firms.
The five graduates released so far have landed real jobs at real dot-coms.
