By Dan Whitcomb LOS ANGELES (Reuters) - A U.S. lawmaker on Monday called on the Congress to investigate the medical scopes blamed for an outbreak of a bacterial "superbug" at a University of California, Los Angeles hospital that has infected seven patients. Representative Ted Lieu, a Democrat from California, said in a letter asking for a congressional oversight committee hearing that the outbreak of the drug-resistant Enterobacteriaceae, or CRE, bacteria posed "both health and national security" risks. Officials say the duodenoscopes, which are inserted down a patient's throat during gastrointestinal procedures, spread the antibiotic-resistant bacteria to seven patients at the UCLA Ronald Reagan Medical Center, contributing to two deaths.

By Daniel Lovering FALL RIVER, Mass. (Reuters) - Housekeepers for former New England Patriots player Aaron Hernandez testified on Monday that they found several guns around his home in the weeks before the alleged murder of a man Hernandez is charged with killing. Housekeeper Marilia Prinholato, 28, said in Massachusetts Superior Court in Fall River that a black handgun fell onto the floor while she was changing sheets in a basement guestroom at the house where Hernandez lived with his fiancée, Shayanna Jenkins, and their baby. "I just took the gun and looked at it and put it back," Prinholato said, adding that the gun was 12 to 16 inches (30 to 40 cm) long and had a full magazine. Hernandez, 25, is accused of fatally shooting associate Odin Lloyd, who had been dating Jenkins' sister, in an industrial park near his North Attleborough, Massachusetts, home in June 2013.
