An Israeli military plane carried back the injured, after a suicide car bomb ripped apart an Israeli seaside hotel in Kenya.

The survivors, many with burns, were taken to Israeli hospitals.

Most of the wounded including some of the Kenyans have been brought back here, to Hadassah Hospital in Jerusalem, where they have more experience than anywhere else in the world, in dealing with victims of suicide bombings.

The Singapore Zoo considers the fifth birth to be a milestone in its efforts to preserve the endangered species.

Virginia Christmas trees may cost a little more in years to come. The Virginia Christmas Tree Growers Association

says the supply of Virginia-grown trees has been declining for the past few years. And the hot, dry weather this past summer killed seedlings planted last spring, which means fewer trees in the future.
