DETROIT (AP) — The latest big recall comes from Fiat Chrysler and involves potential air bag issues on more than 1.5 million trucks. The biggest recall covers 1.35 million Ram 1500, 2500 and 3500 pickup trucks and 3500, 4500 and 5500 Chassis Cabs from the 2012 through 2014 model years. The vehicles have the potential for a short circuit that can deploy the driver's side air bags. The other recall involves Ram Quad Cab pickups with side air bags that don't meet certain federal standards.
BALTIMORE (AP) — There's a hearing in Baltimore today on a defense request to move the trial of six police officers charged in the Freddie Gray case. Gray was a 25-year-old black man who died after being fatally injured while in police custody. The defense says the officers can't get a fair trial in Baltimore because of all the publicity.
WASHINGTON (AP) — Observers say they don't expect a last-ditch effort to succeed in derailing the Iran nuclear deal. Some conservative House Republicans are saying they can't vote on it until the president provides copies of side deals Tehran negotiated with atomic inspectors. Barring any surprises, the international accord will move ahead. Even if a resolution of disapproval passes, there are enough Senate votes to sustain a promised veto.
VIENNA (AP) — There's praise today for a new European Union plan for relocating refugees, but Germany's vice chancellor also says it's just the first step and more effort is required. The plan would relocate 160,000 refugees around Europe. But Sigmar Gabriel tells Parliament that Germany has registered some 450,000 migrants this year.
MAGALIESBURG, South Africa (AP) — The human family appears to have a new member. A barely accessible, pitch-dark chamber of a cave in South Africa has yielded a huge trove of bones of creatures with a surprising mix of human-like and more primitive characteristics. The fossils represent at least 15 individuals who have been dubbed Homo naledi (nah-LEH'-dee). Scientists say it appears the creature walked upright but had a small brain and other traits of ape-like ancestors.
