CLEVELAND (Reuters) – A former Cleveland school-bus driver accused of holding three women captive in his home and torturing them for a decade is scheduled to appear in court for a pre-trial hearing on Wednesday.
Ariel Castro, 52, pleaded not guilty last week to more than 300 charges and was scheduled for an initial hearing before Cuyahoga County Common Pleas Judge Michael Russo.
WASHINGTON (Reuters) – Much of Bangkok could flood within the next two decades if global warming stays on its current trajectory, as sea levels rise and cyclones intensify, the World Bank said in a new report on Wednesday.
The flooding of 40 percent of the Thai capital was just one of dozens of negative effects the Washington-based World Bank warned would happen if the world grew warmer by just 2 degrees Celsius (3.6 Fahrenheit), which it said is likely to occur in the next 20 to 30 years under a “business-as-usual” scenario.

OAKLAND TOWNSHIP, Michigan (Reuters) – Investigators looking for the remains of former Teamsters boss Jimmy Hoffa in a suburban Detroit field could search the area for two more days, seeking evidence to prove an elderly mobster’s claim the labor leader was buried alive on the property shortly after his 1975 disappearance.
Investigators widened the search area and brought in a cadaver-sniffing dog on Tuesday, but apparently did not find the remains of Hoffa, who is thought to have been murdered by mobsters.
The site where FBI agents have been digging for Hoffa’s remains in Oakland County is about 20 miles north of the Machus Red Fox restaurant where Hoffa was last seen alive.
