Obama signs bill reforming surveillance program

Wyden speaks with reporters as he arrives for the weekly Democratic Caucus policy luncheon at the U.S. Capitol in WashingtonBy Patricia Zengerle and Warren Strobel WASHINGTON (Reuters) - President Barack Obama signed into law on Tuesday legislation passed by Congress earlier in the day reforming a government surveillance program that swept up millions of Americans' telephone records. Reversing security policy in place since shortly after the Sept. 11, 2001 attacks, the bill ends a system exposed by former National Security Agency contractor Edward Snowden. Passage of the USA Freedom Act, the result of an alliance between Senate Democrats and some of the chamber's most conservative Republicans, was a victory for Obama, a Democrat, and a setback for Senate Republican Majority Leader Mitch McConnell.

MERS was first identified in humans in 2012 and is caused by a coronavirus from the same family as the one that triggered SARS.

File photo of James Holmes sitting in court for an advisement hearing at the Arapahoe County Justice Center in CentennialBy Keith Coffman DENVER (Reuters) - Colorado cinema gunman James Holmes told a psychiatrist that he views life in prison and execution as equal punishments but wants his life spared out of concern for his family, jurors in his capital murder trial heard on Tuesday. The disclosure from the former neuroscience graduate student now on trial for opening fire in a Denver-area cinema came during a videotaped interview session conducted last year by court-appointed psychiatrist William Reid that was shown in court. Holmes, 27, has pleaded not guilty by reason of insanity to fatally shooting 12 moviegoers and wounding dozens more during a shooting rampage at a midnight screening of the Batman film “The Dark Knight Rises” in July 2012.
