LIMA, Peru (AP) — Authorities are remaining tight-lipped about what specific security misstep may have led to the capture of Joaquin "El Chapo" Guzman, but actor Sean Penn is insisting he was careful in his correspondence with the drug lord. Mexico's attorney general says intercepted communications between Guzman's lawyers and "actresses and producers" hoping to make a biopic helped them find Guzman. Penn says he did not bring his personal phone with him when he went to Mexico to meet with Guzman. He says he used burner phones and changed numbers every day.

BAGHDAD (AP) — The Islamic State group is warning of "worse" to come as it claims responsibility for an attack at a Baghdad mall popular with Shiite Muslims.

WATERLOO, Iowa (AP) — Democratic front-runner Hillary Clinton is sharpening her criticism of rival Bernie Sanders as he narrows the gap between them just weeks ahead of the Iowa caucuses. Clinton has widened her health care critique to include the Vermont senator, saying he would "rip up" the Affordable Care Act. Sanders has said he would push a single-payer system. Last week, her campaign reminded voters that Sanders had backed legislation in 2005 that protected gun-makers from lawsuits.

NEW ORLEANS (AP) — The first-ever federal regulations for large-scale fish farming in the ocean have been issued, opening a new frontier in the harvesting of popular seafood species such as red drum, tuna and red snapper. The new rules allow the farming of fish in federal waters of the Gulf of Mexico. A NOAA Administrator says the Gulf rules could spur similar rules in other U.S. waters. Fish farming is contentious, with fishermen and environmentalists warning it could harm the marine environment.

UNDATED (AP) — People are paying tribute to David Bowie around the world. Mourning fans have covered the rock icon's star on the Hollywood Walk of Fame with candles, flowers and glitter. In Berlin, where Bowie recorded his "Heroes" album, a makeshift memorial has sprung up outside his old apartment. At the Burberry show at London Fashion Week, models honored Bowie by sporting glittery makeup and writing "Bowie" across their open palms.
