WASHINGTON (AP) — More airstrikes are pounding the Islamic State group. The U.S. military says American and coalition forces hit a dozen targets in Syria today.

UNITED NATIONS (AP) — The U.N. Security Council is taking action that it hopes will limit the flow of fighters to terror groups like the Islamic State. It unanimously adopted a resolution today that requires all nations to prevent the recruitment and transport of those fighters. But Turkey's president has lashed out at the Council for its inaction on some of the world's most pressing issues, including the Syrian civil war and the recent Gaza War. He spoke at the U.N. today.

BOSTON (AP) — A judge is granting a two-month trial delay for Boston Marathon bombing suspect Dzhokhar Tsarnaev (joh-HAHR' tsahr-NEYE'-ehv), but he's denying a defense request to move the trial. Judge George O'Toole ruled tonight that the trial will begin Jan. 5 instead of Nov.3. He says there's no reason to assume before the trial that a fair jury cannot be found in Massachusetts.

PORT LEYDEN, N.Y. (AP) — The family of an upstate New York sprint car racer who was struck and killed by NASCAR star Tony Stewart in August says they'll "pursue all remedies" after a grand jury decided not to charge Stewart. Kevin Ward Jr.'s family says the focus should be on Stewart's actions, not Ward's, during the race. Prosecutors say an autopsy shows Ward had enough marijuana in his system to "impair judgment."
