The parents of a woman killed in New York are suing Facebook, after a paramedic took pictures of their daughter's corpse and posted them on the social networking site.
CBS News reports that on the second anniversary of Caroline Wimmer's murder, her parents say they are still trying to get by a day at a time. Wimmer was strangled to death on Staten Island and emergency medical technician Mark Musarella, who responded to the scene, took a picture with his cellphone and posted it on Facebook.

A couple of years ago, the Philadelphia archdiocese heard about three priests who had allegedly raped two boys. It gave the priests' files to law enforcement, and a grand jury began to investigate. Then, the grand jury stumbled on a bombshell. A church employee testified that there were many other priests the panel should know about.

Libya's rebels beat a panicked retreat from withering rocket and tank fire along their western front lines Tuesday, adding to speculation that they cannot stand against Moammar Gadhafi's troops without international intervention.
The battlefield reversal on the outskirts of Gadhafi's hometown, Sirte, came a day after President Obama pledged that no U.S. ground forces would be used in Libya and outlined a strategy to "hasten the day when Gadhafi leaves power."
Prior to addressing the nation about America’s involvement in Libya Monday night, President Obama spoke about education reform saying students should take fewer tests. It’s something that one Colorado Senator is working to make a reality.
Authorities in Japan are encouraging people who live near the crippled Fukushima Dai-ichi nuclear reactor complex — even those outside the mandatory 12-mile evacuation zone — to move farther away from the plant.
Life near the plant is becoming increasingly difficult, officials say, as supplies of food, fuel and potable water in the area dwindle.
