Israel hits symbols of Hamas rule

Israel on Tuesday unleashed its heaviest bombardment in a 3-week-old war against Hamas, striking symbols of the militant group's control in Gaza and firing tank shells that Palestinian officials said shut down the strip's only power plant.

The station's shutdown further disrupted the supply of electricity and water to the people packed into the narrow Palestinian coastal territory. [ More ]

Ukraine at potential turning point after crash

The crash of the Malaysian airliner in rebel-held eastern Ukraine is being viewed as a potential turning-point in the conflict — either, the international revulsion over the death of all 298 people on board will force the warring parties to seek an end to the violence, or the disaster will stoke the fighting as the recriminations escalate. The Boeing 777 was almost certainly shot down, but who did it remains hotly disputed, with most blaming pro-Russian separatists. [ More ]

  Judge strikes down Ky. gay marriage ban
