ATLANTA (AP) — Former President Jimmy Carter says his bout against cancer is "in the hands of God."

Carter will also receive more injections of a newly approved drug to help his immune system seek out and destroy the cancer cells wherever else they may appear.

NEW YORK (AP) — Worries about China's stock market and economy have sent U.S. stocks tumbling today. The Dow dipped 358 points. There was also heavy selling by technical traders. Analysts also say some of the downturn was also likely due to programmed selling linked to the S&P 500. It dropped 43 points and had its biggest percentage decline since February of last year. The Nasdaq fell 141 points, or 2.8 percent, to 4,877.

OLYMPIA, Wash. (AP) — The Washington Supreme Court has ruled that thousands of workers at Seattle-Tacoma International Airport should earn the $15 minimum wage enacted by the surrounding city of SeaTac. The small city was the first in the nation in 2013 to adopt a $15 minimum wage. Airport officials had argued the law didn't apply because it is controlled by the Port of Seattle, not SeaTac.

WASHINGTON (AP) — A review by The Associated Press has found that hundreds of U.S. government employees — including some with sensitive jobs in the White House, Congress and law enforcement agencies are among the accounts at an adultery website exposed by hackers. The government employees used Internet connections in their federal offices to access and pay membership fees to the cheating website Ashley Madison. The AP is not naming the government subscribers it found because they are not elected officials or accused of a crime.

FERGUSON, Mo. (AP) — A suspect is being sought in Ferguson, Missouri, in connection with the fatal shooting of a 9-year-old girl who had been doing homework on her mother's bed.

An official with the St. Louis Cardinals is paying the funeral expenses.
