When her doorbell rang at 3 a.m. on Friday, four days after Hurricane Katrina, Patricia Edwards opened the door and couldn't believe her eyes. There, standing on the lawn, were 40 members of her family. Toddlers and teenagers. Parents holding infants. Brothers and sisters. Cousins, uncles and aunts. Two days earlier, her mother had called from a Dallas motel, saying the family had fled New Orleans and had run out of money.

Israel will abandon more Jewish settlements in the West Bank if Ehud Olmert, the acting prime minister, and his Kadima party win an election this month, one of the party's leaders said Sunday. Israeli troops would remain after civilians are removed from isolated settlements and resettled elsewhere, said Avi Dichter, who formerly headed the Shin Bet domestic-security agency and now is a leading member of Kadima.

There are moments when Jamar Franklin feels as if it's all a bad dream and he'll wake up back in New Orleans, relaxing on the lakefront with a bowl of crawfish, coaching high school basketball and preparing to host a houseful of guests for Fat Tuesday celebrations. "In my mind it's like I'm still going to Mardi Gras," the 31-year-old teacher said. "It still hasn't hit me that I won't be there. There are times when I'm in my room, I feel like I'm still in New Orleans, until I walk outside."

It seemed for a while that Hurricane Katrina might give St. Augustine parish -- home to one of the nation's oldest African American Catholic churches -- a reprieve. After years of seeing its attendance drop, the numbers climbed as people pulled together in churches that were spared devastation.

Eight gang members who moved here from New Orleans after Hurricane Katrina have been arrested as suspects in 11 slayings, police said Friday. The arrests follow a recent surge in violence in the Houston area, which police attribute partly to Katrina evacuees. A gang unit formed two weeks ago to investigate the crime wave has linked the killings to rival New Orleans gang members trying to get a foothold in Houston.

Scores of Jewish settlers rioted in Hebron in the West Bank, wounding a soldier and torching a Palestinian house ahead of the implementation of evacuation orders for a market in the city. Witnesses said more than 150 settlers clashed with Palestinians in the heart of Hebron. The Israeli army said settlers then clashed with police and soldiers who tried to disperse them.

Hanh Luong and her two young sons spend their days and nights huddled next to a packed suitcase with their cellphone nearby. For more than two months they have lived in a small dank room that a refugee organization has leased in one of the poorest sections of the Philippine capital, awaiting a call they know will soon come.

Rising seas have forced 100 people on a Pacific island to move to higher ground, a U.N. report said. Inhabitants in the Lateu settlement on Tegua island in Vanuatu started dismantling their wooden homes in August and moved about 600 yards inland. Taito Nakalevu, a climate change expert at a Montreal conference, said the rising seas seemed linked to climate change, but it was unknown if the island's coral base was subsiding.
