LONDON (AP) — The potential for more flooding from storms in Britain is taking away the Christmas holiday for British ministers who plan to meet.

CHARLOTTE, N.C. (AP) — North Carolina authorities say an off-duty officer at a crowded mall shot and killed a man who pointed a gun at him following a shooting.

Police say no one else was hit and there were no other reports of injuries.

SAN DIEGO (AP) — A woman described as bearded and weighing around 400 pounds is in custody in San Diego after initially fleeing the scene of a stabbing. The woman is a suspect in the stabbing of a man who asked her for a cigarette. The man was hospitalized, but he is expected to survive.

TOKYO (AP) — Okinawa's fight against relocation of a U.S. military base is beginning to find its way to Japanese courts. The island sued the central government today. The central government filed its own lawsuit against Gov. Takeshi Onaga last month, after he rejected an order to reinstate approval, issued by his predecessor, for land reclamation for the new base. Many residents have been long frustrated by U.S. troop presence and have complained about noise, pollution and crime.
