Lawyers: Cosby's drugs-sex admission could help women's suit PHILADELPHIA (AP) - Bill Cosby's admission that he obtained quaaludes to give young women he was pursuing for sex could bolster defamation claims lodged by his accusers, the women's lawyers said after The Associated Press reported on newly released court documents. Cosby in sworn testimony unsealed Monday admitted that he gave the now-banned sedative to at least one of his accusers and to unnamed others. His lawyer interfered before he could answer deposition questions in 2005 about how many women were given drugs and whether they knew about it.
Pope has packed final Ecuador day but holding up well QUITO, Ecuador (AP) - Pope Francis has a whirlwind final full day in Ecuador on Tuesday, with an open-air Mass in the capital sandwiched between meetings with bishops, indigenous groups and students and capped by a visit to a famed Jesuit church. The 78-year-old pontiff, who has only one full lung, appears to be holding up well at the start of his eight-day, three-nation South American tour despite the 2,800-meter (nearly 9,200-feet) altitude of Quito and a day spent in the scorching sun of coastal Guayaquil. He had so much energy he slipped out again for a second night Monday to greet well-wishers who gathered outside the Vatican ambassador's residence where he is staying.
Diplomatic process, US resolve tested as nuke deadline nears VIENNA (AP) - Iran nuclear talks are in danger of busting through their second deadline in a week, raising questions about whether world powers can cut off all Iranian pathways to a bomb through diplomacy - and testing the resolve of U.S. negotiators to walk away from negotiations. With a Tuesday target date set for a deal setting a decade of restrictions on Iran's nuclear program, U.S. Secretary of State John Kerry, Iranian Foreign Minister Mohammad Javad Zarif and other top diplomats were huddling in Vienna looking for a breakthrough.
South Carolina Senate votes to take down Confederate flag COLUMBIA, S.C. (AP) - The push to remove the Confederate flag from the grounds of the South Carolina Statehouse is about to clear its first hurdle. But even if a bill to bring down the rebel banner passes the state Senate as expected Tuesday, it faces a less certain future in the House.
Boycott Israel drive gains strength, raising alarm JERUSALEM (AP) - Ten years ago, a small group of Palestinian activists had a novel idea: inspired by the anti-apartheid movement, they called for a global boycott movement against Israel as a nonviolent method to promote the Palestinian struggle for independence. Long confined to the sidelines, the so-called BDS movement appears to be gaining momentum - so much so that Israel has identified it as a strategic threat on a par with Palestinian militant groups and the Iranian nuclear program. While Israel says the movement is rooted in anti-Semitism, its decentralized organization and language calling for universal human rights have proven difficult to counter, resulting in a string of recent victories that have alarmed Israeli leaders.
@POTUS unscripted: Obama shows a looser side on Twitter WASHINGTON (AP) - Forget the primetime interviews or the formal, choreographed news conferences. President Barack Obama is taking to Twitter to muse about sports, pop culture, even Supreme Court rulings - at all hours of the day. The White House has used Twitter to promote the president's views for years, but mostly in a highly scripted manner, with tweets composed by press aides and released at strategic times. Only occasionally would Obama post to Twitter himself, identifying a bona fide presidential tweet by appending his initials.
2 Americans, 1 Briton gored in 1st Pamplona bull run PAMPLONA, Spain (AP) - Two Americans and a Briton were gored and eight others injured Tuesday as thousands of daredevils dashed alongside fighting bulls through the streets of this northern Spanish city on the first bull run of the San Fermin festival, organizers said. The San Fermin press office said a 38-year-old American identified only by his initials, M.W.O., was gored in the armpit and a 27-year-old Californian identified by the initials D.M.O. was also gored. A 30-year-old Briton with the initials A.B.O. was gored in the groin area. None of the three was said to be in serious condition.
