    Passengers Get Out and Push Frozen Plane

    IGARKA, Russia — Yes, this really happened! A bunch of passengers left their seats to give their frozen plane a push at a snowbound airport in Siberia. That was the situation at Igarka Airport earlier this week where temperatures of minus 50 Celsius left a Tupolev Tu-134 aircraft stranded on the runway. Passengers rallied to the rescue when oil in the plane’s landing gear iced up, according to UTair, the airline whose livery the plane carries. According to the Komsomolskaya […]

    Here’s Why Oil Prices are Set to Stay Low, For Now

    VIENNA — Thursday’s OPEC meeting is set to be one of the most contentious since oil prices plummeted by more than $100 a barrel in 2008. Saudi Arabia’s veteran energy minister Ali Al Naimi has carried the burden of trying to balance global oil supply with demand for nearly two decades. But there are signs that Saudi Arabia is no longer willing to play that role. And the chance of OPEC cutting output to soak up the current glut took […]

    Ferguson, Other Parts of U.S. On Edge After Jury Opts Not to Indict Cop

    FERGUSON, Missouri — When will it stop? A grand jury decision not to indict Ferguson police Officer Darren Wilson in the shooting death of 18-year-old Michael Brown is over and done with. But anger over that decision is not, nor is the prospect of more arson, more looting, or more violence — actions that have already rattled the eastern Missouri city. Activists are set to rally Tuesday in more than 115 cities in the United States, speaking out in support […]

    29 Arrested as Ferguson Streets Smolder

    FERGUSON, Missouri — This is what Ferguson looked like Tuesday morning. Shattered glass from looted stores covered the asphalt. Shell casings from unknown shooters littered the ground. And more than a dozen buildings, including stores owned by local residents, had been set ablaze. As protesters hurled bottles, batteries and rocks at police, officers in riot gear responded by shooting bean bags and tear gas. “This ain’t Iraq. This is the United States,” Demetric Whitlock yelled to a line of police […]

    King, Bachmann Visit U.S.-Mexico Border

    ROMA, Texas — Michele Bachmann leapt out of a black SUV near a high cliff overlooking the Rio Grande, skipped to the edge of a boulder and scanned the river that divides her country from another. It was a quiet Friday afternoon in this border town where immigrants routinely sneak across the river in inflatable rafts, climb a ravine and seek shelter in a local church. But at this moment, there was little more to see on the Mexican side […]

    Six Points: How Ferguson Prosecutor Defended Grand Jury’s Decision

    ST. LOUIS, Missouri — All eyes and ears were on St. Louis County Prosecuting Attorney Robert McCulloch late Monday when he announced there would be no indictment in the shooting death of Michael Brown. But that wasn’t all he talked about. In his nearly 45-minute statement, including questions, McCulloch touched on a variety of topics: the role of the 24-hour news cycle, the relative unreliability of eyewitnesses and the evidence and testimony in the case. “I thought of his statement […]

    What’s Next for Officer Darren Wilson?

      FERGUSON, Missouri — Now that a Missouri grand jury has decided not to indict Officer Darren Wilson, what will happen to the man who killed an unarmed teen in the line of duty? Technically, the 28-year-old officer could return to his job at the Ferguson Police Department. But many believe he will never work as a cop again. Wilson was in the final stages of negotiations with city officials last week to resign, according to people close to the […]

    FERGUSON, Missouri — While protesters chanted late Monday for an indictment in the case of Michael Brown, officials called for calm as the world awaits word of the grand jury’s decision. “No matter what is announced, people will be emotional.
