• Video raises new questions in Trayvon Martin killing: "The father of George Zimmerman, the man accused of shooting and killing an unarmed black teen in Florida, says the 17-yearold threatened to kill Zimmerman and then beat him so badly that it forced Zimmerman to shoot him. A surveillance video from the Sanford Police headquarters the night of the incident raises questions about the description of a beating."
• Algeria refuses French gunman's body, father says: "Algeria is refusing to accept the body of Mohammed Merah for burial, his father said Thursday, citing French authorities. Merah's father, Mohammed Ben Allal, wanted his son buried in the family's ancestral home of Algeria after he was killed by police, who accused him of shooting seven people to death in southern France this month."
• No U.S. access to sites of Afghan killings, officials say: "U.S. military officials have yet to gain access to the sites where 17 Afghans were killed in Kandahar, an obstacle that could make it more difficult to prosecute the American soldier accused of the multiple homicides."
• Jobless claims fall to four year low: "In another sign of improvement in the labor market, the number of people filing for unemployment benefits once again fell to a four-year low last week. The Labor Department reported that 359,000 people filed for initial claims. That's down from the 364,000 who sought help the previous week, a reading that was revised higher."
