Three dead in east Ukraine, Putin warns of 'abyss'

Students wave national flags during a pro-Ukrainian rally in Luhansk, eastern UkraineBy Aleksandar Vasovic MARIUPOL, Ukraine (Reuters) - Separatists attacked a base of the Ukrainian national guard overnight and Kiev said three separatists were killed, the worst bloodshed yet in a 10-day pro-Russian uprising in east Ukraine, overshadowing crisis talks to resolve the conflict. Ukrainian, Russian and Western diplomats arrived for the emergency talks in Geneva, but there was little hope of any progress in resolving a crisis that has seen armed pro-Russian fighters seize whole swathes of Ukraine, while Moscow masses tens of thousands of troops on the frontier. President Vladimir Putin, who overturned decades of post-Cold War diplomacy last month by declaring Russia's right to intervene in neighboring countries and annexing Ukraine's Crimea region, accused the authorities in Kiev of plunging the country into an "abyss".

10 Things to Know for Today

FILE - In a Monday, Jan. 17, 2011 file photo, gun violence protesters participate in a lie-in during an anti-gun rally at the Capitol in Richmond, Va. Nearly six in 10 Americans want stricter gun laws in the aftermath of last month's deadly school shooting in Connecticut, with majorities favoring a nationwide ban on military-style, rapid-fire weapons and limits on gun violence depicted in video games and movies and on TV, according to a new Associated Press-GfK poll. A lopsided 84 percent of adults would like to see the establishment of a federal standard for background checks for people buying guns at gun shows, the poll showed. President Barack Obama was set Wednesday, Jan. 16, 2013 to unveil a wide-ranging package of steps for reducing gun violence expected to include a proposed ban on assault weapons, limits on the capacity of ammunition magazines and universal background checks for gun sales.

Evacuation came too late for many on sinking ferry

South Korean Coast Guard officers search for missing passengers aboard a sunken ferry in the water off the southern coast near Jindo, South Korea, Thursday, April 17, 2014. Strong currents, rain and bad visibility hampered an increasingly anxious search Thursday for more than 280 passengers still missing a day after their ferry flipped onto its side and sank in cold waters off the southern coast of South Korea. (AP Photo/Ahn Young-joon)MOKPO, South Korea (AP) — An immediate evacuation order was not issued for the ferry that sank off South Korea's southern coast, likely with scores of people trapped inside, because officers on the bridge were trying to stabilize the vessel after it started to list amid confusion and chaos, a crew member said Thursday.

Defend 'Obamacare' unabashedly, some Democrats say

FILE - In this March 6, 2013 file photo, Sen. Mark Begich, D-Alaska speaks on Capitol Hill in Washington. The political climate for “Obamacare” suddenly looks brighter, possibly giving Democrats a chance to fight back on the GOP’s top issue this fall. Democrats in at least one tight Senate race are openly embracing the new health law’s popular features, but several others are holding back. Republicans say the somewhat upbeat news _ higher enrollments, and lower cost projections _ won’t do much to change Americans’ negative view of the health care law. (AP Photo/J. Scott Applewhite, File)WASHINGTON (AP) — With enrollments higher than expected, and costs lower, some Democrats say it's time to stop hiding from the president's health care overhaul, even in this year's toughest Senate elections.

Little government response to bombing a year later

FILE - This April 15, 2013 file photo shows medical workers aid injured people following an explosion at the finish line of the 2013 Boston Marathon in Boston. In the days after the Boston Marathon bombing, the nation’s political leaders pledged resources and support for a city grappling with the first terrorist attack on American soil since Sept. 11, 2001. But nearly a year after homemade bombs ripped through the marathon's finish line, there is little evidence of any lasting impact on the political world. Federal funding that helps cities prepare for terrorism may be cut. And state and federal officials have enacted virtually no policy changes in response to the attack, a dramatic departure from previous acts of terrorism that prompted a wave of government action. (AP Photo/Charles Krupa, File)BOSTON (AP) — A year after homemade bombs ripped through the Boston Marathon, state and federal officials have enacted virtually no policy changes in response to the attack, a dramatic departure from previous acts of terrorism that prompted waves of government action.

Robber who was homesick for prison to be sentenced

FILE - This Feb. 9, 2013 file surveillance photo provided by the FBI shows 73-year-old Walter Unbehaun, an ex-convict from Rock Hill., S.C., during a bank robbery in Niles, Ill.

Experts say video doesn't show Earhart wreckage

FILE - In this undated file photo, Amelia Earhart stands next to a Lockheed Electra 10E, before her last flight in 1937 from Oakland, Calif., bound for Honolulu on the first leg of her record-setting attempt to circumnavigate the world westward along the Equator.

Earhart, the first female pilot to cross the Atlantic Ocean, vanished over the Pacific with Fred Noonan during an attempt to circumnavigate the globe. Seven decades later, people are still transfixed with the mystery. Theories range from her simply running out of fuel and crashing to her staging her own disappearance and secretly returning to the U.S. to live under another identity. (AP Photo/File)CHEYENNE, Wyo.

North Korea complains over British stylist's 'bad hair' ad

This undated photo provided by M&M Hair Academy in South Ealing, west London, shows barber Karim Nabbach standing next to a poster poking fun at North Korean leader Kim Jong-un unusual hairstyle. North Korean diplomats have asked the British government take action against a London hair salon’s poster poking fun at distinctively coiffured leader Kim Jong Un. The Foreign Office said Wednesday it had received a letter from the country’s embassy objecting to the poster, and was considering its response. The Evening Standard newspaper reported that the letter urged Britain to take “necessary action to stop the provocation.” Staff at M&M Hair Academy say they were visited by diplomats from the nearby embassy after putting up a poster featuring a picture of Kim - who sports a distinctive undercut - and the slogan "Bad Hair Day?" Police say they spoke to both parties and determined no crime had been committed. The embassy didn’t immediately respond to a request for comment.

Fact file on the Bluefin-21 undersea search vehiclePerth (Australia) (AFP) - The hunt for a missing Malaysian plane suffered another setback Wednesday when a second seabed search by a mini-submarine was cut short due to "technical" troubles after the first also aborted in very deep water.

Rivals flex muscles on streets of east Ukraine

Map of Ukraine locating eastern cities hit by separatist actions as Ukraine sends more troops to the regionSlavyansk (Ukraine) (AFP) - Ukrainian and pro-Russian forces flexed their military muscles in the restive east of the country on Wednesday, a day ahead of high-level international talks on the escalating crisis. A concerned NATO said it planned to deploy more forces in eastern Europe and called for Russia to stop "destabilising" the former Soviet satellite, which has been in deep turmoil since the ouster of the pro-Kremlin leadership in February. Russian President Vladimir Putin has warned that Kiev's decision to send in troops this week to put down a separatist uprising in its industrial heartland had dragged the country to the brink of civil war. An AFP reporter in the flashpoint town of Slavyansk saw at least six APCs and light tanks, some flying Russian flags, in the city centre with dozens of armed men in camouflage stationed around them claiming to be volunteers and Ukrainian army defectors.
