A former FBI agent admitted on Monday that he lied on the witness stand during the 2013 trial of former Boston mob boss James "Whitey" Bulger, officials said. Robert Fitzpatrick pleaded guilty to 12 criminal counts of perjury and obstruction of justice for a wide variety of false statements during the high-profile mob trial. Fitzpatrick, now 76, also said he had been the first FBI agent on the scene of civil rights activist Martin Luther King Jr.'s assassination in 1968 and that he had later been sent to Boston on a special assignment to clean up "major problems" in that office.

U.S. authorities on Monday sent a harmless gas wafting through the New York subway to study how to deal with a toxic accident or attack in a test that both unsettled and reassured riders on the underground system. A mix of odorless, inert gases and tracer materials were released in three of the busiest subway stations in the city: Grand Central Terminal, Times Square and Penn Station, U.S. Department of Homeland Security officials said. With equipment set up at another 55 subway stations around Manhattan, researchers will take air samples every four hours to see how the gas spreads.
