BERLIN (AP) — German officials are providing additional evidence that a Tunisian man, Anis Amri, was behind the wheel of the truck that smashed into a Christmas market in Berlin on Monday, killing 12 people.

RALEIGH, N.C. (AP) — The leader of North Carolina's NAACP says the group will ask its national parent organization to begin an economic boycott of the state because a law limiting the rights of gays and transgenders remains on the books. Yesterday, the state legislature held a special session but failed to repeal the law known as House Bill 2. The Rev. William Barber of the NAACP says more pressure must be on the state's cash registers to remove what he considers extremist policies by Republicans.

COLUMBUS, Ohio (AP) — Hundreds of people have visited the Columbus Zoo in Ohio to celebrate the 60th birthday of the world's oldest gorilla. Crowds sang "Happy Birthday" to Colo today as she entered a specially decorated enclosure filled with healthy cakes and food hidden inside presents. The great-great-grandmother of three looked well and moved easily if a little slowly while paying scant attention to the adoring crowds. One 63-year-old woman who was there had been just a little girl when her father took her to see the infant Colo after the animal's birth.
