One dead, two hurt as vehicle tries to ram U.S. spy agency gates
By Mark Hosenball WASHINGTON (Reuters) - Two people tried to run their vehicle through the National Security Agency's gates near Washington on Monday before guards at the spy agency fatally shot one of them, said officials, who added there was no evidence of a link to terrorism. The second occupant of the vehicle was also shot, according to one official, and a police officer was injured. Both suspects, who were dressed in women's clothes and may be transgender, tried to drive their sport utility vehicle through an entrance at the agency's Fort Meade, Maryland, headquarters, U.S. law enforcement and security officials said. The motive was not immediately known, but one official said drugs may have been involved in the incident that occurred about 20 miles (32 km) northeast of Washington.
Russia sacks theatre chief in 'blasphemous' opera scandal

Russia has sacked the head of a Siberian theatre after its radical staging of a Richard Wagner opera angered the powerful Russian Orthodox ChurchRussia's culture ministry said Monday it fired a theatre director for offending Orthodox believers with a radical staging of a Wagner opera, whose posters showed a crucifixion scene between a naked woman's legs. Culture Minister Vladimir Medinsky on Sunday fired Boris Mezdrich, head of state-funded Novosibirsk State Opera and Ballet Theatre, over his interpretation of Richard Wagner's Tannhaeuser. The contemporary staging in Russia's third city Novosibirsk shifts the action to the present day, with Tannhaeuser a movie director making a film about Jesus visiting Venus's erotic grotto.

Boston bombing jury hears of grisly deaths, defense calls first witness

News crews photograph pieces of shrapnel taken from the body of Boston Marathon bombing victim Krystle Campbell and presented as evidence in the trial of Dzhokhar Tsarnaev in BostonBy Scott Malone BOSTON (Reuters) - The two youngest people killed by the Boston Marathon bombing were torn apart by one of the blasts that ripped through the crowd at the finish line, medical examiners testified on Monday as prosecutors wound up their case against accused bomber Dzhokhar Tsarnaev and defense attorneys began calling witnesses. Massachusetts' Chief Medical Examiner Henry Nields showed the jury 8-year-old Martin Richard’s bloodstained gray New England Patriots T-shirt with holes that correlated with injuries to the child’s torso. On the 15th day of testimony in Tsarnaev's trial at Boston federal court, Nields said a piece of shrapnel appeared to have gone straight through Richard's body. Shrapnel from the same homemade pressure cooker bomb that killed Richard punched through Chinese exchange student Lingzi Lu's legs, causing the 23-year old to bleed to death within minutes, Boston medical examiner Katherine Lindstrom testified.

And it might help her party avoid being sidelined by majority Republicans on future issues. (AP Photo/Pablo Martinez Monsivais, File)
