WASHINGTON (AP) — Child sex offenders make up the largest category of inmates in U.S. military prisons, yet a full accounting of their crimes and how much time they're actually locked up is shielded by an opaque system of justice, an Associated Press investigation has found.
Amid gunfire and explosions, police raided a suburban Paris apartment where they believed the suspected mastermind of last week's attacks was holed up. The siege ended Wednesday with two deaths and seven arrests but no clear information on the fugitive's fate.
By Lawrence Hurley WASHINGTON (Reuters) - Americans are split over abortion restrictions like those in a Texas law challenged before the U.S. Supreme Court, reflecting deep and longstanding divisions over the contentious issue, according to a Reuters/Ipsos poll released on Wednesday. In the online poll of 3,387 U.S. adults, 41 percent of respondents said laws like the one in Texas are intended to make abortion clinics safer, 35 percent said such laws are designed to make it difficult or impossible for women to obtain abortions, and 24 percent said they did not know. The 2013 Texas law mandated costly hospital-grade standards for abortion clinics and required doctors who perform abortions to have admitting privileges at nearby hospitals.
