BUDAPEST, Hungary (AP) — For the first time since fleeing their troubled homelands, thousands of migrants are arriving in their promised land.

PHOENIX (AP) — Backers of Arizona's landmark immigration law are celebrating a major victory. A federal judge has ruled that those challenging the law have failed to show that police would enforce it differently for Latinos than they would for people of other ethnicities. The law allows police, while enforcing other laws, to question the immigration status of those suspected of being in the U.S. illegally.

SEOUL, South Korea (AP) — South Korea's Yonhap news agency is reporting that eight people have been killed and several others are missing after a fishing boat capsized off the country's southern coast. Officials say three people were rescued. South Korea is still dealing with grief and anger over a maritime disaster last year that killed 300 people when a ferry sank off the southern coast.
