WASHINGTON (AP) — Many folks along the East Coast are saying enough already as another winter storm is blasting the region. Today's storm could leave as much as 10 inches of snow in the Washington, D.C. area, Baltimore and elsewhere in the Mid-Atlantic. Areas north of Philadelphia could get up to 6 inches and New Jersey is expected to get nearly a foot.

KERCH, Ukraine (AP) — There are fears that Moscow will send even more troops into Ukraine's Crimea region. Pro-Russian troops are controlling a ferry terminal on the easternmost tip of Crimea, close to Russia. The troops are refusing to identify themselves, but they're speaking Russian. Russian Foreign Minister Sergey Lavrov says Russian troops that have streamed into Ukraine are protecting his country's citizens living there.

DAMASCUS, Syria (AP) — A U.N. spokesman says the latest clashes in a blockaded area of Syria's capital have disrupted efforts to distribute food to thousands of people. The U.N. is calling on all warring parties in the city's Palestinian-dominated Yarmouk area to "immediately allow" the resumption of aid. For nearly a year, forces loyal to President Bashar Assad have prevented food distribution and medical aid to Yarmouk, and more than 100 residents have died of hunger or hunger-related illnesses.

VIENNA (AP) — The head of the U.N. nuclear agency says Iran has cut its stock of uranium that's closest to atomic weapons-grade. Under an interim deal with six world powers, Iran is to dilute half of its 20-percent-enriched uranium to a lower grade suitable for use as reactor fuel. The other half of the uranium is to be changed into a form that is relatively difficult to reconvert to 20 percent. Tehran denies wanting nuclear arms but has agreed to temporarily curb atomic work in exchange for sanctions relief as the sides work on a fuller deal.

LONDON (AP) — A Swedish doctor says four Swedish women who've received transplanted wombs have had embryos transferred into them in an attempt to get pregnant. Since 2012, nine women have received wombs donated by relatives in an experimental procedure designed to test whether it's possible to transfer a uterus into a woman so she can give birth to her own child. The women had in-vitro fertilization before the transplant, using their own eggs.
