Sen. Clinton's former finance aide indicted
Sen. Hillary Rodham Clinton's former finance director, David Rosen, has been indicted on charges of filing fictitious reports that misstated contributions for a Hollywood fundraising gala for the senator, the Justice Department said Friday. The charges focus on an Aug. 12, 2000, dinner and concert. The FBI previously said in court papers that it had evidence the former first lady's campaign deliberately understated fundraising costs so it would have more money to spend on her campaign.
Belfast bank robbery
The Irish Republican Army stole $50-million from a Belfast bank, Northern Ireland police chief Hugh Orde said Friday. The British and Irish governments said the development gravely undermined years of effort to revive a Catholic-Protestant administration involving Sinn Fein, the IRA-linked party. The Dec. 20 raid on the Northern Bank is the biggest cash robbery in history.
