Iraqi officials say the country's military has launched a major operation to retake a section of the city of Ramadi after Islamic State group militants seized it.
An official with the Anbar provincial council says the Iraqi military, backed by local tribesmen, are pushing into the neighborhood of Sijariya in eastern Ramadi after the militants said they captured it Friday.
In early March, Obama's usually reliable supporters vented their frustration with a one-two punch to the White House: a scathing speech by a prominent immigration advocate who derided the president as "deporter in chief," then a threat from Hispanic lawmakers to vote on a resolution criticizing Obama for the soaring deportations.
Hours before the vote, Obama summoned three of the lawmakers to the Oval Office to tell them he was ordering Homeland Security Secretary Jeh Johnson to study how the administration could enforce immigration laws "more humanely."
Obama would ultimately wait until after the election to announce his decisions, unveiling sweeping measures Thursday to spare nearly 5 million people in the U.
Portugal's Attorney-General's office says police have detained former prime minister Jose Socrates as part of an investigation into corruption, money-laundering and tax fraud.
The former leader's arrest is the third major scandal in four months, after the collapse of the country's largest listed bank, Banco Espirito Santo, and the recent arrest of the head of the immigration service in a corruption investigation.
The small community of about 5,300 people is among a dozen awaiting a decision by state housing officials on how much of $75 million in federal funds will be steered its ways for demolitions.
An answer will come next month from the Michigan State Housing Development Authority, which is doling out the money as part of the state's blight elimination strategy.
Brown said much of Ironwood's housing stock was built in the early 1900s when the area's iron ore mines ran full bore.
The cities were selected by the state through an evaluation system that included residential housing vacancy rates.
Officials are working out the final details on which cities would receive how much, said Katie Bach, state housing development authority spokeswoman.
Hillary Rodham Clinton says she supports President Barack Obama's executive actions to protect about 5 million immigrants living in the U. S. illegally, calling it a "historic step" and urging Congress to pursue a measure approved by the Senate last year.
Clinton placed the efforts aimed at changing immigration policy in the context of families, many of whom she said are longtime residents raising children and paying taxes.
Clinton is considering a presidential campaign in 2016 and her embrace of Obama's actions come in sharp contrast to Republican condemnation of the changes the president has ordered.
Charging hypocrisy, the Republican National Committee released a Web video earlier in the day that included the audio of an April 2008 Clinton speech in which she criticized President George W.
After throwing waves of stifling defense at No. 5 Kansas, top-ranked Kentucky showed that it could shoot the ball just as well against Boston University.
Aaron Harrison scored 19 points, Devin Booker added 15 along with seven assists, and the Wildcats shot nearly 59 percent from the field in the second half to pull away from the Terriers for an 89-65 victory Friday night.
Three days after holding the Jayhawks to 20 percent shooting in a 72-40 blowout, the Wildcats (4-0) followed up with their best offensive game to put away the determined Terriers (1-2).
Booker helped break it open with 12 second-half points, including three from behind the arc, while also feeding teammates with passes.
Kentucky ultimately took control by using its significant advantages in depth, size and shooters to dominate the paint (44-16) and bench scoring (39-12).
The Terriers' first-half formula was hustle that kept them nearly even with Kentucky on the glass (16-15) and perimeter shooting led by Hankerson.
The best might have been the Wildcats' final basket, as 6-footer Hawkins skied high from the right side for Booker's pass to throw down a dunk that brought down the house.
