KATHMANDU, Nepal (AP) — Still recovering from an April 25 temblor that killed more than 8,100, Nepal has been struck again by an earthquake.

A family lawyer says the family supports the community expressing frustration and anger, but they want protests to be peaceful.

WILTON, Conn. (AP) — A high school boy who was bullied for stuttering received strong encouragement from someone else who once struggled with his speech — golf great Tiger Woods.
