BERLIN (AP) — German prosecutors say they've detained a Tunisian man who may have been involved in last week's truck attack on a Christmas market in Berlin. Federal prosecutors say the man's number was saved in the cellphone of a fellow Tunisian believed to have driven a truck into the market on Dec. 19, killing 12 people. Prosecutors have until tomorrow evening to determine whether the case against the 40-year-old is strong enough to seek an arrest warrant.

JERUSALEM (AP) — A senior Israeli Cabinet minister is calling Secretary of State John Kerry's planned Mideast policy speech today a "pathetic step." It's the latest comment from Israel blasting the U.S. refusal to veto a U.N. Security Council resolution last week that called Israeli settlements in the West Bank and east Jerusalem a violation of international law. Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu has accused the U.S. of colluding with the Palestinians in drawing it up.

INDIANAPOLIS (AP) — A man who was among five people convicted in a deadly Indianapolis house explosion is the last to learn his punishment. Glenn Hults faces between six months and three years in prison when he is sentenced today. He pleaded guilty to assisting a criminal in the Nov. 2012 house explosion that killed a couple who lived next door and damaged or destroyed more than 80 homes. The owner of the home destroyed by the blast was sentenced last week to 50 years in prison.

GRANBY, Mass. (AP) — A small western Massachusetts town is rallying behind a wounded Marine veteran after a fire forced him out of his home the day after Christmas. Sgt. Joshua Bouchard uses a wheelchair after losing part of a leg and suffering a spinal cord injury in an explosion in 2009. He saved himself and his two dogs when his home caught fire Monday night. The home was built by volunteers with the nonprofit Homes for Our Troops program.

VATICAN CITY (AP) — Pope Francis has accepted the resignation of Cleveland's bishop, who, in 2012, was overruled by the Vatican in his bid to close parishes. It was a rare instance of the Vatican reversing a U.S. bishop on church closures. The plan by Bishop Richard Lennon prompted sit-ins by parishioners and led to a breakaway congregation. Lennon is 69, six years younger than the age when bishops must offer to resign. He underwent a heart procedure earlier this year.
