More than 100 military officers and their supporters were under arrest and others were being sought after a failed attempt to trigger a "people power" revolt against Philippine President Gloria Macapagal Arroyo. The bid was sparked when 27 soldiers walked out of their Manila trial on earlier insurrection charges. They commandeered the five-star Peninsula Hotel, where they were joined by Brig. Gen.

Plans for the first extensive pollution cleanup in Marina del Rey history have sparked a revolt by boat owners at the tony harbor that could echo along the length of the California coast. The Los Angeles Regional Water Quality Control Board on Thursday will consider rules that would force boaters to strip copper paint from the bottoms of their boats and replace it with a less toxic alternative. To clean copper already in the water, the plan also calls for the county to spend at least $147 million dredging the nearly 50-year-old marina, the nation's largest manmade recreational boating harbor.

Government troop reinforcements sped toward the western Ivory Coast on Friday to try to quell a rebellion that has split control of the West African country three ways. The south is under loyalist control, the north has been held by rebels for more than two months, and a chunk of the west is now in the hands of other insurgents.

Amasa Delano, a New England sea captain sailing off the Chilean coast in February 1805, thought he was helping a ship in distress when he boarded the Tryal with an offer of food, water and assistance. Adrift in dangerous waters, its worn hull covered with barnacles and trailing seaweed, the Tryal was, indeed, in distress. But not in the manner Delano suspected. The Tryal was a Spanish slaver on which the slaves had revolted two months earlier, killing most of their captors while sparing Capt.

One of Zimbabwe's most outspoken church leaders called Sunday for a peaceful uprising against President Robert Mugabe's autocratic rule, days before a parliamentary election that rights groups say has been tainted by years of violence and intimidation. Roman Catholic Archbishop Pius Ncube of Zimbabwe's second-largest city, Bulawayo, said he was willing to put on his vestments and lead a march to Mugabe's residence, but feared that "if I do it, I do it alone."

A powerful bomb ripped apart a crowded cafeteria at Jerusalem's Hebrew University on Wednesday, killing seven people--three of them Americans--and wounding nearly 100 others as they were sitting down to lunch. Israeli Jews and Arabs and other foreign nationals were also among the casualties. The military wing of Hamas, a radical Islamic group, claimed responsibility for the attack at Israel's oldest and most prestigious institution of higher education.

The mother could only watch, hysterical and helpless, as a gunman raped and murdered her daughter. It was the little girl's 10th birthday. "I just wanted to commit suicide," said the 42-year-old woman weeks later, shaking with sobs as she recalled the scene. "I just wanted to die." The story told by the woman, who out of fear identified herself only by her first name, Rita, illustrates one of the most brutal aspects of Liberia's 14-year war.

Italian independence hero Giuseppe Garibaldi left his mark on California without ever setting foot here. The state saltwater fish is named for him, as is a defunct Death Valley gold mine, several streets in Los Angeles and the Garibaldina Society. In turn, California's Gold Rush -- and its hard-working, patriotic and generous Italian immigrants -- helped Garibaldi forge modern Italy. One of them is known more for his "sweet gold," chocolatier Domenico Ghirardelli.

It was 6 a.m. when Russian soldiers hoisted themselves over the wall, crashed through the window and broke down the front door. Their quarries were still asleep. Shouting, shoving and kicking, the soldiers pushed 67-year-old Khavazh Semiyev and his wife into a truck waiting outside, then went back for the others -- his two sons and two nephews, his son's wife, his 52-year-old sister. Then -- and Semiyev couldn't believe his eyes -- they went back for his grandchildren: Mansur, 11 years old.

Thugs loyal to Aristide looted businesses in the wealthy suburb of Petionville, and gas stations ran out of diesel fuel amid panic buying by motorists preparing to flee to the Dominican Republic. Foreign airlines suspended flights, and residents took shelter in their homes.

Three months after President Obama ordered a high-level review of U.S. aid to Egypt following a military takeover there, the White House settled on a middle ground Wednesday: maintaining key assistance for security and counter-terrorism efforts while suspending delivery of tanks, helicopters and other new military hardware. The decision seeks to rebuke the Egyptian military for its ever-expanding crackdown on the Muslim Brotherhood movement, but also to maintain what Obama has called "a constructive relationship" with a historically crucial Arab ally.

BEIRUT - Security forces for the Shiite-led Iraqi government raided a Sunni protest camp in northern Iraq on Tuesday, igniting violence around the country that left at least 36 people dead. The unrest led two Sunni officials to resign from the government and risked pushing the country's Sunni provinces into an open revolt against Prime Minister Nouri Maliki, a Shiite. The situation looked to be the gravest moment for Iraq since the last U.S. combat troops left in December 2011. The violence Tuesday started in the Sunni town of Hawija, where shooting erupted during the raid.

Dissident shareholder Greenlight Capital claimed in a filing made Friday in its lawsuit against Apple that a growing number of investors are joining its protest against the way the company is handling its upcoming shareholder vote.  In the filing, Greenlight includes a statement from Thomas Long, a senior vice president at D.F. King & Co., a firm that helps facilitate shareholder votes on corporate proxies, among other things. Long's declaration claims there has been a groundswell of shareholders seeking to change their votes since Greenlight went public with its dispute.
