After the killing of a Florida abortion clinic doctor and his escort last summer raised fears of a nationwide conspiracy, U.S. deputy marshals were dispatched to protect dozens of clinics in cities around the nation. But the clinics in Brookline, Mass., where two women were shot to death Friday, were not among them because there was "no perceived threat" there, a Marshals Service spokesman said, even though clinics in the Boston suburb were frequent targets of protesters.

More than 10,700 fugitives were rounded up last month in a weeklong sweep by federal, state and local law officials, Atty. Gen. Alberto R. Gonzales announced Thursday.

The airline uses conventional passenger jets and makes scheduled stops at more than three dozen cities across the United States. Aside from that, "Con Air" is a little different. There are no movies to watch, magazines to read or pillows to make a nap more comfortable. Window shades stay up, seats don't recline and tray tables are stowed even when lunch is served.

Opening a new legal front in the fight over the Bicycle Club casino, a group of investors filed a $150-million lawsuit Thursday against their partners--the U.S. Justice Department and its federal Marshals Service. The suit was announced outside the Bell Gardens casino, where employees and investors waved signs saying, "Feds get out." The U.S. government has operated the casino since 1990, when it seized a controlling interest after a drug and money-laundering investigation.
