Fans heading to the Edward Jones Dome for a Rams game this season, will need leave their usual purses, backpacks and diaper bags at home. That's because the National Football League has ban all but clear plastic, vinyl or PVC bags inside stadiums for the 2013-2014 football season.
The bags can't be bigger than 12x6x12 inches. NFL approved tote bags will be sold in team stores and on-line, but a one-gallon freezer bag will also be accepted. And fans can still take in their palm-sized clutch purses.
NFL officials say they changed the rules to improve security after the Boston Marathon bombings.
More information about the new policy can be found on the NFL's website.
CAIRO (AP) - Egyptian state TV says security forces are moving to clear two sit-in camps in support of the country's ousted President Mohammed Morsi.
Security officials say forces are firing tear gas into the larger of the two protest locations in Cairo, the encampment in the eastern Nasr City neighborhood.
At the smaller protest site outside the Cairo University campus is Giza, armored carriers were securing the area on Wednesday.
The pan-Arab Al-Arabiya TV is showing images of clouds of smoke from the tear gas, collapsed tents and tires burning at the Nasr City protest site. The officials spoke on condition of anonymity because they were not authorized to talk to the media.
At least 250 people have died in clashes in Egypt following Morsi's July 3 ouster in a military coup.
