JERUSALEM - The full story may never be known of why a baby-faced Australian Israeli attorney came under suspicion of working for the Mossad spy agency and then died alone in an Israeli jail cell charged with betraying the country he had adopted. But as the political drama over Ben Zygier's 2010 arrest and death swept through Israel on Thursday, it left virtually no institution unscathed. Mossad was scrambling to contain possible damage to its operations in Iran and other places where Zygier is believed to have traveled using his Australian passport.

James E. Holmes, charged in the Colorado movie theater shooting that roiled the nation in July, is due in court on Monday for a hearing to discuss a variety of issues including whether the prosecution violated a gag order. Holmes, 24, faces 166 charges in the attack that killed 12 and wounded at least 58 during the premiere of “The Dark Knight Rises” just past midnight in a packed Aurora theater. He is being held without bond. Monday's hearing was supposed to have taken place on Nov. 15, but was put off when his lawyers told the court that Holmes could not attend.

Earlier this week, angered by a question about the return of an injured player, Lane Kiffin stormed out of a daily news conference after less than 30 seconds. I don't need that long to give him some advice. Chill out, dude. Stop sweating the small stuff. End these weekly tiffs with the media. Worry less about hiding injuries and more about hitting linebackers. You are distracting your team and clouding your mission. I called Kiffin Thursday about this growing mess, and, give him credit, he acknowledged his part in it. He admitted he was wrong to walk out of the news conference.

CENTENNIAL, Colo. -- Most of the details of the case against James E. Holmes, the man accused of the midnight movie shooting that left 12 dead and 58 injured, will remain sealed to the public, a judge ruled Monday. Saying that Holmes' right to a fair trial outweighed the media's quest to release more details and shed light on the proceeding, District Judge William Sylvester left intact much of the gag order for those connected to the case and kept most of the police and court documents sealed, including arrest and search warrants.

DENVER -- James Egan Holmes, the man accused of killing 12 people and injuring 58 others at an Aurora, Colo., movie theater on July 20, is expected to be in court Thursday in a hearing to unseal more details about the case. Twenty news media outlets, including the Los Angeles Times, have joined in a motion to ease a strict gag order imposed on the case by District Court Judge William Sylvester. That order bans anyone connected with the case from discussing it, including those at the University of Colorado.

AURORA, Colo. - Theater shooting victims and their loved ones marched through the rituals of mourning and recovery here Thursday, with funerals for two of the 12 dead, a vigil, and fundraising to help pay for medical care and burials. The Aurora Victim Relief Fund, set up by Democratic Gov. John Hickenlooper and the Denver-based Community First Foundation, has received more than $2 million in donations since a gunman sprayed a crowded movie theater with bullets last week. At least five of the 58 injured remain in critical condition.
