The Latest: Malaysia: Poison killed Kim within 20 minutes

Sun, 26 Feb 2017 09:59:32 GMT2017-02-26T09:59:32Z

Malaysia's health minister says the dose of poison given to North Korean ruler Kim Jong Un's half brother was so high that it killed him "within 15-20 minutes." Kim Jong Nam died Feb. 13 at Kuala Lumpur's airport. Friday's revelation by Malaysian police that the banned chemical weapon VX nerve agent was used to kill Kim raised the stakes significantly in the case. Health Minister Subramaniam Sathasivam said Sunday that the dose of VX giv...



Duped into killing Kim? 2 suspects say it looked like prank

Sun, 26 Feb 2017 07:30:09 GMT2017-02-26T07:30:09Z

HANOI, Vietnam (AP) - Two women - a Vietnamese and an Indonesian - have been arrested for allegedly coating their hands with the immensely toxic chemical agent VX and wiping them on the face of the North Korean leader's estranged half brother Kim Jong Nam at Kuala Lumpur's airport. He died within hours. The women told officials from their embassies in Malaysia that they believed the entire operation was a harmless prank for a reality show. Malaysian police say the attacker...



Trump says he won't attend correspondents dinner this spring

Sat, 25 Feb 2017 23:58:11 GMT2017-02-25T23:58:11Z

WASHINGTON (AP) - President Donald Trump, who has been criticizing the news media and is famously thin-skinned, says he won't be attending the White House Correspondents' Association dinner - sparing himself the dubious honor of being an in-the-house target of jokes. The annual fundraiser for college scholarships and venue for reporting awards mixes politicians, journalists and celebrities and is typically attended by the president and first lady. Remarks by a comedian, of...



In Trump's first speech to Congress, will decorum hold?

Sat, 25 Feb 2017 19:42:34 GMT2017-02-25T19:42:34Z

WASHINGTON (AP) - A presidential speech to Congress is one of those all-American moments that ooze ritual and decorum. The House sergeant-at-arms will stand at the rear of the House of Representatives on Tuesday night and announce the arrival of Donald Trump before a joint session of Congress by intoning: "Mister Speaker, the President of the United States" just like always. Trump will stride down the center aisle to lusty cheers and hearty handshakes from his Republican s...



Liberal activists, new DNC chief face a Trump-era reckoning

Sun, 26 Feb 2017 07:26:23 GMT2017-02-26T07:26:23Z

ATLANTA (AP) - When Tom Perez stepped to the stage as the newly elected Democratic national chairman, his first official act was to invite his vanquished rival to join him as deputy chairman. Minnesota Rep. Keith Ellison accepted on the spot and two men stood together, smiling like a national ticket at a presidential nominating convention. Members of the Democratic National Committee cheered wildly at their gathering in Atlanta on Saturday, forgetting the competitive race that took two roun...

OLATHE, Kan. (AP) - A Kansas man accused of shooting two Indian immigrants and a third man at a bar, in what some believe was a hate crime, was always a drinker but became a "drunken mess" after his father died about 18 months ago, a longtime neighbor said Saturday. Andy Berthelsen said his neighbor Adam Purinton, who is charged with murder and attempted murder in Wednesday night's attack, was very close to his father, who died of pancreatic cancer. He said in the...

NEW ORLEANS (AP) - A man who allegedly plowed into a crowd enjoying the Krewe of Endymion parade on Saturday in the Mid-City section of New Orleans is being investigated for driving while intoxicated, police said.

Copy this: Vatican stakes out rights to Pope Francis' image

Sun, 26 Feb 2017 07:10:48 GMT2017-02-26T07:10:48Z

VATICAN CITY (AP) - God's love may be free, but the Vatican says it has a copyright on the pope. Unnerved by the proliferation of papal-themed T-shirts, snow globes and tea towels around the world, the Vatican has warned it intends to "protect" the image of Pope Francis and "stop situations of illegality that may be discovered." It also wants to protect the crossed keys emblem of the Holy See. "The secretary of state will undertake syste...

RIO DE JANEIRO (AP) - Women in elegant, long-flowing dresses saunter on the red carpet while men in tuxedos smile broadly and wave to hundreds of people who have lined up along Rio de Janeiro's Avenida Atlantica to have a look. As the guests walk into the iconic Copacabana Palace Hotel, they are greeted with the rhythms of a Japanese drum ensemble and the sounds of ocean waves just across the street. Once inside, dozens of men and women in Japanese kimonos bow and say "goo...

SANTA MONICA, Calif. (AP) - Sunday might be dominated by "La La Land," but Saturday belonged to "Moonlight." Barry Jenkins' luminous coming-of-age tale swept Saturday's Film Independent Spirit Awards, taking home six awards including best feature. "Moonlight" won every award it was nominated for at the 32nd annual indie awards, the dressed-down, beachside ceremony held the day before the Academy Awards. "Moonli...
