iranian leaDER: NO retreat at nuclear TALKS

Iran and the European Union agreed Tuesday to hold nuclear talks in Geneva next week, but President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad insisted in a speech that Iran would not give "one iota" in the discussions. The meeting between Saeed Jalili, Iran's top nuclear negotiator, and Catherine Ashton, the European Union's foreign policy chief, would be the first high-level negotiations in more than a year and would follow revelations, in leaked diplomatic communications, of widespread concern among Iran's Arab neighbors about the nation's nuclear program.

Grandmother held in toddler's death

A Virginia toddler was walking out of a shopping mall with relatives when her grandmother suddenly flung her over a railing, sending the girl on a fatal plunge to the pavement several stories below, police said Tuesday. Carmela Dela Rosa, 50, of Fairfax was arrested and charged with murder, said prosecutor Ian Rodway. Authorities said interviews with witnesses and Dela Rosa led them to the conclusion that the girl's fall Monday night was no accident, but they couldn't yet explain why the grandmother threw her.
