Texas and Oklahoma are fighting over access to the Red River. Fast-growing Texas is eager to fuel its expansion in a time of drought, while the poorer state of Oklahoma is water-rich. The court's decision could impact interstate water-sharing agreements across the country.
Gunfire injured two people and scattered a crowd of thousands in Denver Saturday. The annual pot celebration is the first since recent laws in Colorado and Washington made marijuana legal for recreational use.
In West, Texas, some of the town's citizens whose homes were damaged by Wednesday's massive fertilizer plant explosion are returning to their homes Saturday, after authorities declared parts of the area safe. But a curfew will be in place, and other areas remain off-limits.
Watertown, Mass., resident David Henneberry's has been hailed as a hero for telling police that bombing suspect Dzhokhar Tsarnaev might be hiding in the boat he keeps in his back yard. Boston State Police have released images showing what the authorities saw from a helicopter as the wounded Tsarnaev hid under a tarp.
After days spent living in apprehension and fear following Monday's bomb attack at the Boston Marathon, residents celebrated the capture of suspect Dzhokhar Tsarnaev on Friday night.
Most major terrorist attacks against the U.S. have originated abroad. But as details of the Boston Marathon bombings emerge, reports point to two young men of Chechen origin who were seemingly fully integrated into American society.
Information about brothers Dzhokhar and Tamerlan Tsarnaev has turned from a trickle into a flood this week, after police publicly identified them as suspects. Friends and former coaches say the people they remember don't seem capable of carrying out days of violence.
A young girl is in serious condition in a New Delhi hospital after being found Wednesday, two days after her parents reported her missing. Authorities say they have arrested a 24-year old man for the crime, but protesters in the capital Saturday faulted the police for responding too slowly.
The bombing attack at the Boston Marathon Monday could have caused scrambling and panic. Instead, the tragedy revealed the city's character as people rushed to help each other.
He willed the nation's newspaper into life in 1982. And he insisted on some basic rules that sometimes get forgotten.
The bombing and its aftermath revealed a massive, highly coordinated homeland security apparatus that can organize a mass casualty disaster or lock down a major American city at a moment's notice. Or both.
The quake happened near the site of the devastating 2008 temblor that killed more than 90,000 people.
The grisly week that began at the Boston Marathon on Monday left a police officer dead. Sean Collier, an officer with the MIT campus police, was pronounced dead Thursday night. He's remembered as passionate and dedicated to his profession.
With the capture Friday night of Dzhokhar Tsarnaev, the 19-year-old surviving suspect in the bombings at the Boston Marathon, the story moves into a new phase — one of trying to answer critical questions. In particular, are there more bombs and are other people involved?
Much has been made of the fact that the suspects in the Boston bombings are ethnic Chechens, with links to the volatile North Caucasus region of Russia. Russian reaction to the story, however, appears to be as complex as the region's turbulent history.
Twenty years ago, federal agents clashed with David Koresh's Branch Davidian community near Waco, Texas. The standoff ended with a raid and fire in which some 80 children, women and men perished. It's remembered as one of the darkest chapters in American law enforcement.
The search for survivors has ended, and investigators are trying to figure out what led to fiery explosion at a fertilizer plant in West, Texas, on Wednesday. At least 14 people are confirmed dead, many of them first responders.
The suspect had managed to stay just outside a 20-block search perimeter, but a tip from a Watertown, Mass., resident and coordinated law enforcement led to his apprehension Friday night.
Neuharth changed the look of American newspapers by filling USA Today with breezy, easy-to-comprehend articles, attention-grabbing graphics and stories that often didn't require readers to jump to a different page. He died Friday in Florida, USA Today announced. He was 89.
Boston Police say a 19-year-old college student wanted in the Boston Marathon bombings is in custody after a manhunt that left the city virtually paralyzed and his older brother and accomplice dead.

WBUR's Curt Nickisch said it's a relief to folks in Boston.
"It takes a huge weight off of the minds of everybody here in Watertown," he said, "and I can tell you business is going to be good at bars tonight here in Boston."
Nickisch said about the time the lockdown was lifted was when residents were headed home anyway and it'll be closer to business as usual next week.
The brothers are suspects in Monday's marathon bombings, which killed three people and wounded more than 180 others. The men are also suspected of killing a Massachusetts Institute of Technology police officer in his vehicle late Thursday.
Authorities in Boston had suspended all mass transit and warned close to 1 million people in the entire city and some of its suburbs to stay indoors as the hunt for the remaining suspect went on.
The bombings on Monday killed three people and wounded more than 180 others, tearing off limbs in a spray of shrapnel and instantly raising the specter of another terrorist attack on U.S. soil.
Chechnya was the scene of two wars between Russian forces and separatists since 1994, in which tens of thousands were killed in heavy Russian bombing. That spawned an Islamic insurgency that has carried out deadly bombings in Russia and the region, although not in the West.
Investigators in the Boston case have shed no light on the motive for the bombing and have said it is unclear whether it was the work of domestic or international terrorists or someone else entirely with an unknown agenda.
The endgame — at least for Suspect No. 1 — came just hours after the FBI released photos and video of the two young men at the marathon's finish line and appealed to the public for help in identifying and capturing them.
