  • Rivera Primary Probe
    In this undated arrest photo made available by the Broward County Sheriff's Office, shows Ana Alliegro. After four years of unrelenting investigations, former U.S. Rep. David Rivera’s fate in a criminal campaign finance probe could rest squarely on the shoulders of Alliegro who was his close friend and longtime Republican political consultant with deep roots in South Florida’s Cuban exile community. Alliegro is charged with funneling about $80,000 in 2012 to an unknown Democratic congressional candidate in what prosecutors say was an attempt to smear better-known candidate Joe Garcia, who eventually defeated Rivera for the House seat. The candidate, Justin Lamar Sternad, has pleaded guilty and is cooperating in the probe.

  • Mideast Israel Palestinians
    This undated photo shows Israeli Army 2nd. Lt. Hadar Goldin, 23 from Kfar Saba, central Israel. Israeli army spokesman Lt. Col. Peter Lerner said Friday, Aug. 1, 2014 that Goldin was apparently captured by Hamas militants who came through a tunnel from the Gaza Strip and another two soldiers were killed. An hour after Friday's cease-fire started, gunmen emerged from one or more Gaza tunnels and opened fire at Israeli soldiers, with at least one of the militants detonating an explosives vest, said Lerner. Goldin was apparently captured during the ensuing mayhem and taken back into Gaza through a tunnel.

    FILE - In this Friday, July 25, 2014 file photo, Italian Foreign Minister Federica Mogherini, foreground, looks on during a news conference with her Macedonian counterpart Nikola Poposki, right, at the Foreign Ministry in Skopje, Macedonia. As the European Union struggles to respond to what it perceives as Russia's aggressive meddling in Ukraine, Italy and Poland are staking their claims to provide the bloc's new foreign-policy chief — kicking off a race in which the candidates' views of Moscow will likely be decisive. Incumbent Catherine Ashton's term as the 28-nation bloc's top diplomat ends in October. The position has gained profile in recent years with Ashton taking the lead in six-power negotiations on Iran's nuclear program that also involve the United States. Italian Premier Matteo Renzi's office said Friday, Aug. 1, 2014, it officially nominated Foreign Minister Federica Mogherini for the position, while the Polish government advertised its foreign minister, Radek Sikorski, as "just right" for the task.

The final rules announced Thursday would reduce the number of government poultry inspectors by around a fourth. But those that remain will focus more on food safety than quality, requiring them to pull more birds off the line for closer inspections and encouraging more testing for pathogens. There would also be more inspectors checking the facilities to make sure they are clean.
