KUALA LUMPUR, Malaysia (AP) — Some oil that was found in the South China Sea has been tested -- and officials say it didn't come from a missing Malaysia Airlines jet, or from any other aircraft. It's the latest possible clue that hasn't panned out, as searchers look for any signs of the plane that disappeared over the weekend on a flight from Malaysia to China with 239 people on board.
KIEV, Ukraine (AP) — A statement from Russia's Foreign Ministry today is likely to trigger alarms in Ukraine about possible Russian intervention there. The statement denounced what it described as lawlessness by far-right activists in eastern Ukraine. Russian forces have already taken effective control of Ukraine's Crimean Peninsula, and there are fears that Russia might make additional moves into eastern Ukraine.
RALEIGH, N.C. (AP) — The jury has been dismissed for the day at the North Carolina trial of an Army general on sexual assault charges. The judge is considering new evidence that a top lawyer at the Pentagon may have interfered in a decision on whether to accept a plea agreement -- an agreement that was ultimately rejected. It's unlawful in the military justice system for senior commanders to interfere in decisions on prosecutions.
EUREKA, Calif. (AP) — There are no reports of any injuries or damage after a very strong offshore earthquake rattled the Northern California coast last night. The quake was centered 50 miles west of Eureka, and about four miles beneath the Pacific seabed.
LA CANADA FLINTRIDGE, Calif. (AP) — A car crash in a Los Angeles suburb yesterday was just the start of the trouble for the two drivers involved. They each suffered hundreds of bee stings after one of the vehicles hit a tree and disturbed a hive. One of the drivers, a 51-year-old woman, jumped into a backyard swimming pool to escape the insects. The other, a 17-year-old girl, fell to the street and was covered in bees. A deputy used a fire extinguisher to get them off of her. Both drivers were treated at a hospital.
