Tumult erupted in the courtroom after the verdicts were read when an attorney for group leader Ammon Bundy demanded his client be immediately released, repeatedly yelling at the judge. U.S. marshals tackled attorney Marcus Mumford to the ground, used a stun gun on him several times and arrested him.
Italy on Thursday vowed to rebuild every home destroyed after two powerful earthquakes that forced thousands to flee in terror but "miraculously" did not cause any fatalities. Two months after tremors in the same area left nearly 300 dead, the twin quakes ripped through a mountainous, sparsely-populated part of central Italy on Wednesday evening. "Given the strength of the shocks, the absence of any deaths or serious injuries is miraculous," Interior Minister Angelino Alfano said, while Prime Minister Matteo Renzi headed to the scene to help oversee rescue efforts.
By Tulay Karadeniz and Laila Bassam ANKARA/BEIRUT (Reuters) - Turkey said on Wednesday it will press its military offensive in Syria until Islamic State is driven from the town of al-Bab, despite a warning from forces allied to Syrian President Bashar al-Assad and a helicopter attack on the rebels it backs. Turkey's incursion into Syria, launched two months ago to drive Islamic State militants from its border and prevent Kurdish fighters from gaining ground in their wake, has complicated an already messy battlefield in northern Syria. As the Turkey-backed rebels push south towards al-Bab, an Islamic State-held town 35 km (22 miles) northeast of Aleppo, they face confrontation with both Kurdish and pro-Assad forces, whose frontlines lie close by.
Bilingual education is back on the ballot in California. At present, the Golden State public schools are required to teach most English learners in English-only programs. By voting "yes" on Proposition 58, California voters would make it easier for schools to decide how they teach English learners, according to the Legislative Analyst’s Office, the California legislature’s nonpartisan fiscal and policy advisor.

Turkey's prime minister says the country will not participate in the United States' operation to kick the Islamic State group out of their capital Raqqa if Syrian Kurdish fighters are included. The U.S. considers the Democratic Union Party, or PYD, and its armed wing, the People's Protection Units, or YPG, as the most effective ground force in the fight against IS and has said they will be part of the offensive. Russia says its embassy in Damascus has been shelled by militants holed up on the outskirts of the Syrian capital, but no one has been hurt.
A Wisconsin city clerk raised concerns about opening an early voting site on the state university’s Green Bay campus in part because she feared it would encourage more Democratic-leaning students to vote, a move that some say could suppress the vote along partisan ties. As early voting becomes a more popular choice for people across the nation, political parties have tried to strategically use or block the option, which tends to appeal most to low-income voters who don’t necessarily have flexible schedules or time to wait in line to vote on one designated day. In theory, early voting strengthens a democracy by increasing participation.

For the last few years, Ferrari has followed a model-release schedule that's roughly as regular as the tides—which makes predicting when future models will show their beautiful faces rather predictible. For starters, we know almost certainly that the car will be a mid-cycle refresh of the existing F12berlinetta, not a full-blown replacement model.

American officials have accused Russian-backed hackers of trying to influence the outcome of the U.S. presidential election by leaking Democratic nominee Hillary Clinton’s emails. On Thursday, Russian President Vladimir Putin denied this. Speaking during a televised conference in the southern Russian city of Sochi, Putin said Moscow was not involved in the hacks.
Images taken by a NASA Mars orbiter indicate that Europe's ill-fated Mars lander left a small crater on the Red Planet's surface, backing up scientists' theory that the craft hit the ground at high speed. The disc-shaped, 577-kg (1,272 lb) Schiaparelli probe, part of the Russian-European ExoMars program to search for evidence of life on Mars, was destroyed last week when its thrusters stopped firing too soon during its descent to the surface. Scientists believe that the Schiaparelli lander plummeted to the ground from a height of 2 to 4 km (1.2 to 2.5 miles), hitting the ground at more than 300 km/h instead of touching down softly as it was supposed to.
The twin-engine F/A-18C Hornet warplane involved in the incident touched down on Tuesday evening at the Marine Corps Air Ground Combat Center in Twentynine Palms, California, the U.S. Marine Corps said in a statement. The warplane was assigned to Marine Aircraft Group 31 from Marine Corps Air Station Beaufort in South Carolina, the Marine Corps said. The incident comes three months after a U.S. Marine Corps pilot was killed when his F/A-18C Hornet warplane crashed during a training mission near the air base, about 140 miles (225 km) east of Los Angeles in the Mojave Desert.
The world's largest marine reserve aimed at protecting the pristine wilderness of Antarctica will be created after a "momentous" agreement was finally reached Friday, with Russia dropping its long-held opposition. The deal, sealed by the Conservation of Antarctic Marine Living Resources (CCAMLR) at an annual meeting in Hobart after years of negotiations, will see a massive US and New Zealand-backed marine protected area established in the Ross Sea. It will cover more than 1.55 million square kilometres (600,000 square miles) -- roughly the size of Britain, Germany and France combined -- of which 1.12 million square kilometres will be a no fishing zone.
