WASHINGTON (AP) — The debate will go on, but President Barack Obama has scored a foreign policy victory. Maryland Sen. Barbara Mikulski announced her support of the Iran nuclear agreement today. That means there are now 34 votes for the accord, meaning the president's expected veto can't be overridden. Mikulski says the deal -- brokered by world powers including the U.S. -- is "the best option available to block Iran from having a nuclear bomb."

BUDAPEST, Hungary (AP) — They're outside a train station, but they aren't going anywhere for now. Thousands of people are trapped in a makeshift refugee camp in the heart of Budapest, Hungary. They've swamped every inch of available space. Police won't allow them to catch trains to Austria and Germany. Some have threatened to walk the 105 miles to the Austrian border. Many have fled the violence in Syria.

FOX LAKE, Ill. (AP) — The manhunt in northern Illinois has been widened for three men suspected of killing a veteran police officer who had chased them on foot. Investigators near Fox Lake, about an hour northwest of Chicago, are gathering surveillance video in hopes developing leads.

BALTIMORE (AP) — A judge in Baltimore has refused to throw out charges against six police officers in connection with the death of a black man from injuries he suffered while in custody. A defense request to remove District Attorney Angela Mosby was also rejected. The officers face charges ranging from assault to murder. The death of Freddie Gray sparked unrest and rioting in Baltimore.

ARLINGTON, Texas (AP) — An unarmed college football player fatally shot by a Texas police officer at a car dealership likely used a synthetic psychedelic drug and marijuana prior to the deadly confrontation. That's according to an initial autopsy report released today. The officer, who was fired by the Arlington Police Department, shot Christian Taylor four times. The case is being reviewed by a grand jury.
