Teen safe, alleged abductor killed

A man suspected of killing a California woman and her young son before fleeing with her 16-year-old daughter was killed in the Idaho wilderness and the teenager was found safe Saturday, authorities said.

James DiMaggio, 40, was killed at the north end of Morehead Lake in Idaho, San Diego County Sheriff William Gore said. The shooting came after officers participating in a massive manhunt spotted a campsite from the air.

The FBI said it was sending in a team to investigate the shooting, but offered few details.

Gore said San Diego sheriff's authorities have notified Hannah Anderson's father that she was rescued.

She has no apparent physical injuries, but she was taken to a hospital where crisis counselors, victim witness coordinators and health care providers are assisting her.

Kurdish leader vows help for Syria's Kurds

The president of the Iraqi region of Kurdistan pledged Saturday to do everything in his power to defend Syria's Kurds from al-Qaida-linked rebels, signaling a further potential expansion of the Syrian civil war beyond the country's borders.

Massoud Barzani's announcement follows weeks of intense clashes between Kurds and Islamist and al-Qaida-linked rebel factions in Syria that have left scores dead on both sides and opened up a new front in the increasingly multifaceted conflict.

Until recently, Syria's Kurds, who make up roughly 10 percent of the country's population, had largely remained on the sidelines as the war raged, focusing on building the foundations of an autonomous administrative region in the far northeast. However, sporadic fighting with rebel factions has escalated in what analysts have described as both a clash of ideologies and a power struggle over resources. The Kurds sit on lucrative oil fields, control border crossings and are accused by some in the opposition of being aligned with President Bashar Assad's government.

Manitou Springs, Colo.: Authorities recovered a man's body from debris left by a mudslide that swept through Manitou Springs, and crews continued their search Saturday for three people reported missing.

Northern Ireland: Northern Ireland's police chief vowed Saturday to hunt down and imprison scores of Protestant militants after they attacked and wounded 56 officers protecting a parade by Irish Republican Army supporters.

Bahrain: The government deported a U.S. citizen working as a teacher in the gulf kingdom over what it described Saturday as her "radical" writings on Twitter and websites, as officials crack down on dissent. Erin Kilbride of Portland, Maine, was to arrive back in the United States on Saturday, officials at the Bahrain Center for Human Rights said. She did not return requests for comment from the Associated Press.
