MEXICO CITY (AP) — There are already calls for quick extradition to the United States for the world's most notorious drug lord, who has been captured for the third time after two prison escapes in Mexico. Mexican marines came under fire in the operation to nab Joaquin "El Chapo" Guzman. He's been sent back to the prison he escaped from the last time, and any extradition won't come quickly.

NEW YORK (AP) — A New York City police officer is recovering after being shot in the ankle during a disturbance at a large party in the Bronx. Five people are hospitalized with stab wounds. New York City Police Commissioner William Bratton said 25-year-old Officer Sherrod Stuart's injuries are not life-threatening. Bratton says a 19-year-old with a criminal history is in custody.

DES MOINES, Iowa (AP) — The odds are growing that someone will win tonight's $800 million Powerball jackpot. It's estimated about 65 percent of the possible number combinations will have been bought. But a lottery official says logic and statistics can be thrown out because it's a new experience. If no one matches all the numbers, the next drawing is expected to soar past $1 billion.

SEOUL, South Korea (AP) — North and South Korea have slid back into a Cold War-like standoff after Pyongyang's claims of a hydrogen bomb test. South Korea responded with blasts of harsh propaganda from giant green speakers aimed across the world's most dangerous border. North Korea's subsequent warning of war is considered a typical response that's indicative of the real fury that any criticism of Pyongyang brings. Many outside governments are skeptical of the test itself.

MOSCOW (AP) — News reports say six people have been killed in a house fire in central Russia. The dead include a mother and five children. The Emergencies Ministry says the fire broke out in an area 600 miles east of Moscow and the building was engulfed in flames when firefighters arrived. The woman's husband was hospitalized with severe burns, the ministry said. Russia's Investigative Committee said preliminary indicators point to improper electrical wiring or careless use of fire.
