An 8 year old Lynchburg boy drowned in a swimming pool while on a church trip. It happened around 3-thirty Saturday afternoon at the Miller Home of Lynchburg for Girls. Johnathan William Lyons died after attempts made by church staff and firefighters to revive him were unsuccessful. A group from the New Dearington Baptist Church had rented the pool for the afternoon. The lifeguard who was supposed to be on duty had not shown up. A pastor who directs youth activities was beside the pool, but did NOT see Lyons enter the pool area.

The Iraqi militants holding Wassef Ali Hassoun are denying they've executed their hostage.
A website and a Lebanese news agency reported that Hassoun has been killed, but his captors used their own web site to deny those reports.
Meanwhile, militants attacked the oil pipeline linking Iraq's northern and southern oil fields.
The lines have taken several hits in recent weeks, costing the country a billion dollars in lost revenue.
