WASHINGTON (AP) — It's expected to take months or longer to service millions of possibly defective air bags being recalled. Takata Corp. has agreed under pressure from the government to declare 33.8 million air bags defective. That will double the number of cars and trucks included in what is now the largest auto recall in U.S. history. The bags can open with too much force and spew shrapnel into the passenger compartment. Six deaths are linked to the glitch worldwide.

SAN JUAN, Puerto Rico (AP) — A Norwegian cruise ship that departed from Boston has run aground in Bermuda. Authorities say the Norwegian Dawn hit a reef this evening in a channel after temporarily losing power. The vessel is said to be stable, with full power and everyone aboard safe.

PHILADELPHIA (AP) — Federal authorities say it could be a year before investigators can determine the probable cause of the Philadelphia train derailment that killed eight people. The focus continues to be why the train was moving at nearly twice the 50 mph speed limit when it headed into a sharp curve. About 20 people remain hospitalized. Five were listed in critical condition.

WACO, Texas (AP) — One biker present when violence erupted Sunday at a biker gathering in Waco, Texas, says the meeting was over mundane motorcycle issues. But police say one fuse that set things off was a parking dispute and someone running over a gang member's foot. When it was all over, nine bikers were killed and 18 were wounded. Investigators still processing the scene at a shuttered restaurant and outside say it may be tomorrow before they finish.

WASHINGTON (AP) — Former Delaware Attorney General Beau Biden is undergoing treatment for an undisclosed illness at Washington's Walter Reed National Military Medical Center.

He now works for a Delaware law firm.
