Five months after Americans learned that information about their telephone calls was being indiscriminately scooped up by the National Security Agency, Congress seems poised to place limits on the bulk collection of telephone "metadata" - information about the source, destination and duration of telephone calls but not their contents. That's a positive development.

Returning to the country her family fled years earlier because of persecution by the Khmer Rouge, Kalyanee Mam has crafted a deeply felt portrait of Cambodia. Her documentary "A River Changes Course" is a profile of three families in different parts of the Southeast Asian nation - a remote northern jungle, a floating hamlet on the Tonle Sap River and a village outside Phnomh Penh - that captures the country at a crucial juncture on the industrialization spectrum. However emblematic their struggles are, the people Mam follows over several years are vivid individuals, whether they're facing a poor rice harvest, dwindling fish supplies or deforestation in the name of progress.

After the incident, Israel issued a vague and terse statement saying its soldiers had suffered light to moderate injuries when an "explosion" occurred "during an overnight activity adjacent to the northern border.
