Indiana governor: 'absolutely not' a mistake to sign religious freedom bill

Demonstrators gather to protest a controversial religious freedom bill in IndianapolisWASHINGTON (Reuters) - Indiana Governor Mike Pence on Sunday said it was "absolutely not" a mistake to sign the state law that supporters contend promotes religious freedom but detractors see as a covert move to support discrimination against gay people. "There has been shameless rhetoric about my state, about this law, and about its intention all over the Internet," Pence said, speaking on ABC's This Week with George Stephanopoulos. "This isn't about disputes about individuals," he said. (Reporting by Alina Selyukh and Sarah N. Lynch; editing by Susan Thomas)

Utility found 'hazardous situation' in gas link before New York blast

A car sits amongst the rubble after an explosion destroyed four buildings in New YorkBy Barbara Goldberg NEW YORK (Reuters) - Utility workers dispatched in August to one of three buildings destroyed in an explosion and fire in Manhattan last week found dangerous gas line connections that created a "hazardous situation," a Con Edison spokesman said on Saturday. The crew was sent to the building after a Con Edison worker reading gas meters smelled gas on Aug. 6 in the basement, said Con Edison spokesman Allan Drury. New York Mayor Bill de Blasio said on Friday that the blast was possibly tied to someone "inappropriately" tapping into a gas line. The owner of the sushi restaurant where the explosion occurred told The New York Times that utility workers determined that gas intended for his restaurant was being siphoned off illegally for use in newly renovated apartments upstairs.
