By Eric M. Johnson SEATTLE (Reuters) - Chipotle Mexican Grill Inc could reopen locations in Washington state and Oregon as soon as Wednesday after a batch of tests found no E. coli bacteria in food samples, health officials said on Monday. Public health officials are still working to identify the cause of the E. coli food poisoning that has sickened 43 people, most of whom dined at eight Chipotle restaurants in the greater Seattle and Portland areas. All of Chipotle's 43 outlets in those areas have been closed since Oct. 31.
COLUMBIA, Mo. (AP) — Racially charged incidents at the University of Missouri have led to numerous protests, a hunger strike by a graduate student and at least 30 black football players announcing they are on strike — with all of them calling for the president of the four-campus system to be removed.

Two Louisiana deputy marshals charged with killing a 6-year-old boy and injuring his father in a hail of gunfire will be required to surrender their service firearms and badges if they are able to post $1 million in bail ordered by a judge on Monday. Judge William Bennett set bail for the deputy marshals, Derrick Stafford, 32, and Norris Greenhouse Jr., 23, during a closed hearing at the Avoyelles Parish Jail, hours before the boy's family laid him to rest. Jeremy Mardis, who was autistic, was buckled into the front passenger seat of his father Chris Few's car last week when the two local marshals fired 18 times at the vehicle after chasing it in central Louisiana, state police said.
