The official said the Westerners had been detained in Sana at the behest of their own governments, but declined to give details of their arrest in the impoverished Arabian Peninsula state.

Reporting from Beirut — Protests surged in Iran as students around the country clashed this afternoon with security forces armed with clubs in the latest round of street confrontations over the nation's disputed presidential elections. Police shot tear gas canisters at protesters chanting "Death to the dictator" and setting garbage bins afire. Hundreds of security forces in riot gear stood alongside streets, witnesses said. Pro-government Basiji militiamen had been allowed to flood university campuses since early in the morning to prevent protests from breaking out, students said.

Sen. Dianne Feinstein said Friday she is ready to drop her call for a six-month moratorium on student visas if colleges work more closely with immigration authorities to monitor foreign students in the United States. The idea for a temporary suspension of student visas was the most controversial aspect of Feinstein's proposal, announced last week, for tighter restrictions on foreign students after the terrorist attacks.

At a taco truck near Maya Angelou Community High School in South Los Angeles, senior Ramiro Gonzalez showed off his school-issued iPad tucked into his backpack Tuesday, excited that he still has it. "They're saying we might have to give them back now," he said. "But I hope we get to keep them. " Nearby, Eliazith Lorenzo, a senior at a different school on the same campus, had his iPad taken back only days after receiving it. He'd used it a little in class but said he'd mostly played a soccer game on it at home.
