U.S. Marshals release photo of Loughner

The U.S. Marshals Service released a new image Tuesday of the man accused of shooting U.S. Rep. Gabrielle Giffords, killing six people and wounding a dozen others near Tucson last month. The photo shows Jared Loughner, 22, in front of a block cinder wall, wearing a mustard colored jail uniform with a white T-shirt underneath. His hair is slightly grown out and he has a cut on his right forehead. The photo was taken in Phoenix while he was in the agency's custody. It is a different image than the mug shot released by the Pima County Sheriff's Office taken two days after he was arrested.

WASHINGTON

Lawsuit against health plan tossed

U.S. District Judge Gladys Kessler on Tuesday threw out a lawsuit claiming that President Barack Obama's requirement that all Americans have health insurance violates the religious freedom of those who rely on God to protect them. Kessler is the third Democratic-appointed judge to dismiss a challenge, while two Republican-appointed judges have ruled part or all of the law unconstitutional.

They said the father carried out the attack because he believed his daughter had become too Westernized.
