One dead, one hurt as men try to ram U.S. spy agency gates: reports
Guards shot one man dead and seriously wounded a second when they tried to ram a vehicle into the entrance gate at the Fort Meade, Maryland, headquarters of the National Security Agency on Monday, news reports said. Federal law enforcement officials told Reuters that two people in a car tried to ram the spy agency's gate and initial indications are that at least one was seriously injured. White House Principal Deputy Press Secretary Eric Schultz said: "The President has been briefed on this morning's incident at the National Security Agency and will be updated as appropriate." NBC, quoting sources, said the men, disguised as women, were in a stolen car. The other, a dark vehicle, had front-end damage.

Sierra Leoneans breathed a sigh of relief on Monday as they emerged from a three-day nationwide lockdown imposed in a bid to prevent a resurgence of the deadly Ebola virus. The country's population of more than six million had been confined to their homes starting early on Friday, for the second time in six months, on orders from President Ernest Bai Koroma.

The lockdown was called over fears the disease that has killed almost a third of the 12,000 people infected in Sierra Leone was making a comeback around the capital and in the north.
By Scott Malone BOSTON (Reuters) - The 8-year-old boy who was the youngest person to die in the Boston Marathon bombing was torn apart by the blast, a medical examiner testified on Monday as federal prosecutors wound up their case against accused bomber Dzhokhar Tsarnaev. The graphic testimony about the injuries suffered by Martin Richard was illustrated by the child's bloody, torn clothing. Holes in Richard's bloodstained gray New England Patriots T-shirt that correlated with holes in his torso were described by Massachusetts' Chief Medical Examiner Henry Nields during the 15th day of testimony in Tsarnaev's trial at Boston federal court. The brother, Tamerlan Tsarnaev, 26, died in the early morning of April 19 after a gunfight with police that ended when Dzhokhar inadvertently ran him over with a hijacked car.
