KATHMANDU, Nepal (AP) — The government of Nepal is sending rescue helicopters to mountain areas where landslides and collapsed buildings from today's earthquake may have buried people.

Dozens more are confirmed dead from today's quake, and the toll is expected to rise.

SOCHI, Russia (AP) — Secretary of State John Kerry's meetings today with Russia's president and foreign minister have produced little evidence of any progress in easing tensions on Ukraine or Syria.

NEW YORK (AP) — Even though gasoline prices have been rising steadily in recent weeks, drivers will almost certainly be paying far less this summer than they've paid in at least six years. The Energy Department says it expects the price of gasoline to average $2.55 between April and September. Over the course of the year, a typical U.S. household could save $675 in gasoline prices compared to last year.

RICHMOND, Va. (AP) — A University of Virginia associate dean is seeking more than $7.5 million from Rolling Stone magazine in a defamation lawsuit. It stems from the magazine's account of an alleged gang rape on campus -- an account that has since been debunked. The suit was filed today by Nicole Eramo, who is the top administrator dealing with sexual assaults at the school. She says she wants to "set the record straight" and to hold the magazine and the writer of the article accountable.
