U.S. prosecutors in Chicago indict four in Mumbai attacks


Prosecutors Indict four in Mumbai Attacks

Federal prosecutors in Chicago have indicted four alleged Pakistani masterminds of the 2008 attacks in Mumbai, India, including two men who have been linked by U.S. investigators and foreign court documents to Pakistan's security forces. The indictment filed Monday never mentions the Pakistani security forces or their alleged role in the attacks. Prosecutors charged the four Pakistanis with playing lead roles in the attacks, suspected to have been carried out by the Lashkar-i-Taiba Islamist group, which killed 166 people, six of them Americans. Three of the four Pakistanis are thought to be at large.


Bus bombings kill four in Karachi

At least four people were killed in the southern port city of Karachi on Tuesday in bombings that struck two buses carrying Pakistani naval employees, a senior naval official said. At least 56 people were wounded. The official, Commodore Irfan ul-Haq, identified the dead as a civilian doctor, a junior naval officer, and two low-ranking naval employees. No one claimed responsibility immediately, but Taliban insurgents and militant groups affiliated with the organization have repeatedly attacked civilians and military installations.


Radiation spikes at nuclear plant

High radiation levels recorded at a nuclear reactor in northeast Ohio have prompted a special inspection by the U.S. Nuclear Regulatory Commission. The NRC said Tuesday that workers at the Perry Nuclear Power Plant immediately evacuated it April 22 when radiation levels rose while it was shutting down for a refueling outage. The commission said the plant is safe and officials don't believe workers were exposed to radiation levels "in excess of NRC limits."


Ecuador: The government on Tuesday suspended school in four towns near the Tunguarahua volcano as ash spewed 2½ miles into the sky, damaging crops and endangering the health of nearby residents.

Turkey: Pro-Palestinian activists said Tuesday they are in the final stages of organizing a sea convoy to the Gaza Strip, likely to be much bigger than a similar flotilla that was raided a year ago by Israeli forces, leaving nine people dead.

Nepal: The country's rhinoceros population has risen from 435 in 2008 to 534 today owing to better security against poachers and community conservation programs, a government official said Tuesday.

  3. See inside this Snell Isle home with an amazing chandelier and infinity pool

    Home and Garden

    When Elizabeth and David Samuelson started planning the house they built six years ago on Snell Isle, the couple envisioned a West Indies look with masonry stucco walls and a metal hip roof. As they moved forward, it evolved into something they describe as coastal contemporary.

    Elizabeth Samuelson and David Samuelson's at the entrance to their Snell Isle house which has numerous luxurious features yet is a comfortable home for a family of four. An infinity pool blends seamlessly from the terrace right into Tampa Bay. Doors surrounding the family room open and are then out of sight enabling the interior to seem more outside than inside. David designed and made a chandelier with hundreds of dangling, clear fish that hangs over the foyer.
