George W. Bush has surgery to fix knee

Former President George W. Bush has successfully had a partial knee replacement in Chicago. Bush spokesman Freddy Ford said Bush had the procedure Saturday and returned home to Dallas on Monday. Ford said in an email Tuesday that Bush was "doing great" and was able to "get up, walk around, and go up and down stairs just a couple hours after the procedure." Bush, 67, had a heart procedure to ease a blocked artery in August.

Iran court wants Facebook founder

A judge in southern Iran has ordered Facebook founder and CEO Mark Zuckerberg to appear in court to answer complaints by individuals who say Facebook-owned applications Instagram and Whatsapp violate their privacy, semiofficial news agency ISNA reported Tuesday. It is highly unlikely that Zuckerberg would appear in an Iranian court since there is no extradition treaty between Iran and the United States. Facebook is officially banned in the country.
