NEW YORK (AP) — The police killings of unarmed blacks in Ferguson, Missouri, and elsewhere — and the investigations and tumultuous protests they inspired — was the top news story of 2014, according to The Associated Press' annual poll of U.S. editors and news directors.
President Barack Obama says the United States is reviewing whether to put North Korea back on its list of state sponsors of terrorism as Washington decides how to respond to what he calls an "act of cybervandalism," not one of war, against a movie company.
WASHINGTON (Reuters) - Deputy Attorney General James Cole said on Monday the fatal shootings of two New York police officers on Saturday were "heinous and cowardly acts." The officers were attacked by a man apparently motivated by the deaths of two black men at the hands of white police officers in New York City and Ferguson, Missouri. "Our sympathies, our prayers are going out to those families," Cole said of the officers. "There's no reason we should have to be dealing with this." (Writing by Bill Trott; Editing by Chizu Nomiyama)
