• North Korea rocket breaks up in flight: "Defying warnings from the international community, North Korea launched a long-range rocket on Friday, but it broke apart before escaping the earth's atmosphere and fell into the sea. The launch drew condemnation from United States and countries in the region."
• Syrians take to streets amid truce: "Syrians poured into the streets after Friday prayers, chanting and raising opposition flags in a major test of a fragile cease-fire implemented a day earlier to end a bloody government crackdown."
• What's next in the Trayvon Martin case: "A Seminole County judge on Thursday found there was sufficient probable cause to move forward with the case and set a May 29 arraignment for George Zimmerman. The next legal step, say Zimmerman's attorney and the special prosecutor, is to allow the case to work its way through Florida's judicial system."
• Gas prices may have peaked: "After one of the fastest and steepest runups in recent memory, it's possible gasoline prices may have peaked. Retail gas prices fell more than half a cent Friday to a nationwide average just above $3.90 a gallon, according to AAA, continuing a decline started late last week that has shaved almost 4 cents off the price of gas."
• Writer says Mel Gibson spewed anti-Semitism, talked of killing ex: "Mel Gibson frequently spews "looney, rancid" anti-Semitism, has talked about killing his former girlfriend, and is prone to hate-filled diatribes slamming everyone from John Lennon to Walter Cronkite, according to a screenwriter who has been working with him."
