32 dead in latest wave of Iraq attacks

Sunday, 16 June 2013 07:30 Published in National News

BAGHDAD, Iraq (AP) — Officials say nearly a dozen apparently coordinated car bombs and a shooting across Iraq have killed at least 32 and wounded scores.

Officials say the car bombs targeting Shiite-majority areas were the cause of most of the casualties. The shooting happened near the northern city of Mosul when gunmen attacked police guarding a remote stretch of an oil pipeline.

Violence has spiked sharply in Iraq in recent months, with the death toll rising to levels not seen since 2008. Nearly 2,000 have been killed since the start of April.

The extended wave of attacks is raising fears of a return to widespread sectarian killing a decade after the U.S.-led invasion.

Two dead after accident near St. Louis

Sunday, 16 June 2013 07:28 Published in Local News

ST. LOUIS (AP) — Police say two people have died in a collision involving a tractor-trailer and an SUV just outside the St. Louis city limits.

The St. Louis Post-Dispatch reports that after the collision early Saturday, the tractor-trailer continued southbound driving through two power poles, hitting a fence and a pontoon boat. The trailer wound up on its side, spilling its contents of beer bottles and cans across the road.

The drivers of both vehicles were killed. The names of the victims haven't been released.

Police also said a section of the roadway would be closed while authorities investigated the cause of the accident and debris was removed from the scene.

JEFFERSON CITY, Mo. (AP) — Numerous messages are urging Missouri Governor Jay Nixon to sign legislation that would require doctors be in the room for the initial dose of a drug used in medical abortions.

The Republican-led Legislature approved the legislation. Nixon, a Democrat, has about a month to sign or veto the bill. Otherwise, it will take effect without his signature.

Many people are seeking to influence Nixon's decision. Supporters of the legislation say it would prevent "telemedicine" abortions and is needed to protect women's health and safety.

Opponents say the process is safe, and the legislation seems to be more of an attempt to restrict availability of abortion services.

Abortion drug bill is HB400.
