WACO, Texas (AP) — The gunfire from a biker shootout ended Sunday afternoon, but the yellow crime scene tape is still up and investigators in Waco, Texas are working into the night. The rampage left nine dead and 18 wounded. A Waco police official says the bloody fight between rival gangs apparently began with a parking dispute and someone running over a gang member's foot. Five gangs from across Texas are said to have been involved.

WASHINGTON (AP) — Millions of trucks and cars will be affected, but it may take weeks before the government can list them all in a database for a massive air bag recall. Auto supplier Takata Corp. today agreed to declare 33.8 million air bags defective.

LANGA, Indonesia (AP) — Indonesian fishermen have rescued more than 100 migrants who were stranded at sea for more than four months. More than half of them were women and children and an Indonesian official says they are weak, starving and suffering from dehydration. There has been a recent wave of migrants stuck on boats off Thailand, Malaysia and Indonesia because they are not welcome. Most are from Bangladesh and a persecuted Muslim-minority from Myanmar known as Rohingya (ROH'-hin-GAH').

SAN JUAN, Puerto Rico (AP) — Thousands of passengers bound for Boston will have to spend the night stuck aboard a Norwegian cruise ship that has run aground in Bermuda. There are a little more than 3,700 passengers and crew aboard the Norwegian Dawn. An official in Bermuda tells the AP that the ship hit a reef near a channel, but is in a stable position. One passenger who spoke to the AP by phone says the vessel stopped suddenly after there was a shudder.
