By Victoria Cavaliere SEATTLE (Reuters) - A Washington state man was sentenced to 10 years in prison on Thursday for setting fire to a popular Seattle gay nightclub packed with New Year's Eve revelers. No one was badly hurt in the Dec. 31, 2013, attack on Neighbors, a decades-old establishment filled with 750 people when Musab Mohammed Masmari, 30, doused a carpeted stairway with gasoline and set it alight. He was never charged with a hate crime in connection with the incident, but prosecutors maintained his actions were driven by bias. "Motivated by ignorance and intolerance, this defendant put more than 700 lives at risk when he purposely started a fire at a crowded nightclub on New Year's Eve," U.S. Attorney Jenny Durkan said in a statement.

Healthcare premiums will rise an average of 4.2 percent in 2015 on California's health insurance exchange, the largest of the state marketplaces established by President Barack Obama's healthcare reform, state officials said on Thursday. Ten companies will sell plans for 2015 through Covered California, three fewer than this year, said the exchange's Executive Director Peter Lee. Opponents of Obama's healthcare reform, the 2010 Affordable Care Act, have warned for months that 2015 premiums would soar due to the high medical costs of the first wave of enrollees who, they claimed, are older and sicker than the general population. In California, however, insurers' projections of 2014 medical spending were fairly accurate.
