Killer tiger adds 10th victim in India

Killer tiger adds 10th victim in India

A tiger prowling near villages in northern India killed its 10th person in six weeks, a day after eluding a trap set by hunters with a live calf as bait. The female tiger is believed to have strayed from Jim Corbett National Park, India's oldest national park, which was established in 1936 to provide endangered Bengal tigers with safe territory. The big cat's latest victim was a 50-year-old man who was collecting firewood Sunday night in the forest outside Kalgarh village in Uttarakhand state, according to Saket Badola, deputy director of the national park.

Security staff gets its old name back

The White House's national security team has gotten back its cherished name: National Security Council. President Barack Obama signed an executive order Monday restoring the designation the NSC staff had operated under since the NSC's creation in 1947. The NSC advises and assists the president on national security and foreign policy matters. Obama changed the name nearly five years ago when he combined the functions of the NSC and the Homeland Security Council into one entity, calling it simply the National Security Staff. That name had not been popular with national security staffers, however. The change back to the original name was seen as a morale booster.
