Authorities pressed on through the third day of an intense Southern California manhunt on Sunday for an accused killer and two other inmates charged with violent felonies who broke out of an Orange County jail through a plumbing tunnel, officials said. The escaped prisoners were identified as Hossein Nayeri, 37, Jonathan Tieu, 20, and Bac Duong, 43, who were housed together in a 68-man dormitory-style unit of the jail before slipping away early on Friday morning, Orange County Sheriff's Department officials said. "The three escapees ... are dangerous criminals," Sheriff Sandra Hutchens said in a statement.
By Frank McGurty and Ian Simpson NEW YORK/WASHINGTON (Reuters) - New York City emerged on Sunday from a massive blizzard that paralyzed much of the U.S. East Coast, while snowy gridlock gripped the nation's capital and surrounding areas, where federal, state and local offices and schools planned to remain closed on Monday. Midtown Manhattan sprang back to life on a bright and sunny Sunday as residents and tourists rejoiced in the warming sunlight, digging out buried cars, heading to Broadway shows and cavorting in massive drifts left by New York City's second-biggest snowstorm in history. In Washington, where a traffic ban was still in effect, the recovery got off to a slower start, with the entire transit system closed through Sunday.
