Akin not ruling out political return

Sunday, 28 April 2013 10:10 Published in Local News

ST. LOUIS (AP) — Todd Akin isn't ruling out a political comeback, nearly six months after losing Missouri's U.S. Senate race amid widespread criticism of his comments about "legitimate rape."

Akin recently spoke to KSDK-TV in his first interview since losing the November election to Democratic incumbent Claire McCaskill. He said he's ready for a comeback, but hasn't decided if that will be in academia, public speaking, or even politics.

The 65-year-old Republican was a 12-year congressman from suburban St. Louis who won a tough Senate primary in August. His campaign took a hit after he remarked in a TV interview that women's bodies have ways of avoiding pregnancy from what he called "legitimate rape."

BOSTON (AP) — Investigators have their suspect and are now looking to stitch together the details of the Boston Marathon bombing plot.

FBI agents have picked through a landfill near the University of Massachusetts Dartmouth, where 19-year-old suspect, Dzhokhar Tsarnaev (joh-HAHR' tsahr-NEYE'-ehv), was a sophomore. FBI spokesman Jim Martin would not say what investigators were looking for.

Also, two college buddies of the suspect have been questioned, but a lawyer says they had nothing to do with the attacks. He says the two are being detained in a Boston jail for violating their student visas by not regularly attending classes.

And U.S. officials said his mother had been added to a federal terrorism database months before the April 15 attack. His mother said it's all "lies."

Bangladesh rescuers find 19 alive in building

Saturday, 27 April 2013 08:30 Published in National News

SAVAR, Bangladesh (AP) — Rescue workers today brought another 19 survivors out of the rubble of a collapsed building in Bangladesh where at least 340 people died. They vow to keep working despite fading hopes.

Meanwhile, police have detained five people in connection with the collapse of the shoddily-constructed building that housed garment factories.

Among those taken into custody is the wife of the building owner, who is on the run, in an attempt to force him to surrender. Violent public protests continued sporadically.

A fire official says there are still more trapped survivors.

Rescuers passed bottles of water and small cylinders of oxygen up a ladder leaning against the side of the building to be given to possible survivors inside.

A military spokesman says 2,419 survivors are accounted for, including the latest 19.
