A Massachusetts man detained under a terrorism probe faces charges in federal court on Wednesday, federal prosecutors said, as local media reported the man and an associate who police shot dead on Tuesday had planned to try to behead a police officer. Police arrested the man, named as David Wright by a spokeswoman for U.S. Attorney for Massachusetts Carmen Ortiz, in Everett, outside Boston. Officers working with the Joint Terrorism Task Force had earlier shot and killed Usaamah Abdullah Rahim, who had been under 24-hour surveillance, after police say he confronted them with a knife.

Carmat to give fourth patient artificial heart within three months
Carmat will equip a fourth patient with an artificial heart within three months at most, one of the company's founders told BFM television on Wednesday. The French company is conducting trials of its heart device that is designed as a permanent implant to extend the life of patients without them having to wait for a human heart donor. Carmat's first transplant patient, a 76-year-old man, died in March last year, two-and-a-half months after his operation.
Four Texas family members suspected of beating 14-year-old to abort baby
By Lisa Maria Garza DALLAS (Reuters) - Four members of a Texas family have been arrested on suspicion of beating a 14-year-old relative to induce an abortion two years ago after she had been raped by a member of the family, Dallas police said on Wednesday. The teenager eventually gave birth to a stillborn baby, whose body was thought to have been burned in a charcoal grill and buried at an unknown location, it said. The young girl told police she became pregnant after a sexual assault by a family member but was too embarrassed to report it to authorities. Police said the four relatives discovered the teenager was pregnant and used various methods to terminate the pregnancy out of fear that Child Protective Services would remove the other children living at the home.
