NEW YORK (AP) — Doubts are being cast on Iraq's prime minister's statement that captured Islamic State militants have told Iraqi intelligence agents of an alleged plot to attack subways in the United States and Paris. French and American officials say they had no such information. And a senior Obama administration official says the plot wasn't brought up this week in meetings with Iraqi officials at the United Nations.

ATLANTIC CITY, N.J. (AP) — A law enforcement official says he sent the video of Ray Rice punching his fiancee inside a casino elevator NFL security chief Jeffrey Miller in April. The official says a woman from league offices left a voicemail confirming receipt of the video and said "You're right. It's terrible." The NFL has repeatedly said no one from the league saw the images until it was released earlier this month by TMZ Sports. Miller has released a statement "unequivocally" denying he received the tape or saw it before it was disclosed.

ST. LOUIS (AP) — The police chief in Ferguson, Missouri, is apologizing to the family of Michael Brown -- not for his shooting death by a police officer, but because his body remained on the street for so long after he was killed. In the video released today, Police Chief Tom Jackson also apologizes to any peaceful protesters who felt their rights were violated during the protests that followed the shooting.

FRESNO, Calif. (AP) — California farmers who spray a widely used insecticide on some of the state's most abundant crops may soon have to overcome the nation's steepest restrictions or find another pest killer. Heavy restrictions are being proposed on chlorpyrifos. In use since 1965, the pesticide has sickened dozens of farmworkers in recent years. Traces have been found in waterways.
