Islamic extremists suspected in a bomb attack in a Pakistani market that killed more than 100 people had also planned an attack against the Vatican in 2010 that was never carried out, an Italian prosecutor said Friday. Wiretaps collected as part of investigation into an Islamic terror network operating in Italy gave "signals of some preparation for a possible attack" at the Vatican, prosecutor Mauro Mura told a news conference in Cagliari, Sardinia.

“At the time that the train struck the group of migrants, they were resting and sleeping on the tracks,” said Macedonian Railways manager Nikola Kostov. “The train driver honked and tried to stop, but it was too late and the train hit the group of migrants who weren’t able to leave the tracks.”

“We’re really just trying to get the message across on what Memorial Day should be,” expedition leader and former Navy SEAL Josh Jespersen of Boulder, Colorado, said Friday. “It’s really about memorializing those that we lost overseas.”

Smith shows the Grand Prismatic hot spring in Yellowstone National Park's that is among the park's myriad hydrothermal features created by the fact that Yellowstone is a supervolcano, the largest type of volcano on Earth. Scientists have discovered a new, deeper reservoir of partly molten rock beneath the Yellowstone supervolcano. But they said the find doesn’t change the chances of a volcanic eruption. (Robert B.

FILE - In this April 23, 2015 file photo, President Barack Obama pauses while speaking in the Brady Press Briefing Room of the White House in Washington, where he took full responsibility for deaths of American, Italian hostages, expresses apologies. The accidental killing of two hostages in a U.S. counterterrorism operation against al-Qaida has raised pressure on the White House to revise the nation’s oft-criticized strategy for dealing with abducted Americans. A day after President Barack Obama apologized and took responsibility for the deaths of American Warren Weinstein and Italian Giovanni Lo Porto, administration officials said Friday that a nearly yearlong, interagency review of the policy is to be completed this spring.
