DAMASCUS, Syria —Sporadic violence persisted in Aleppo on Wednesday as U. S. officials announced an agreement had been reached with Russia to extend Syria’s fragile cease-fire to the deeply contested northern city. The Syrian military said the truce would last only 48 hours.
Restoration of a partial truce would bring relief to residents on both sides of Syria’s largest city after two weeks of relentless violence that has killed nearly 300 people, destroyed hospitals and brought it to the brink of humanitarian disaster.
It was not immediately clear whether the new effort will be observed or for how long.
California told to prepare for a potential huge earthquake in longest fault.
LONG BEACH, Calif. — Southern California’s section of the San Andreas Fault is “locked, loaded and ready to roll,” a leading earthquake scientist said Wednesday at the National Earthquake Conference in Long Beach.

A group of Illinois students and parents sued the Obama administration Wednesday over its stance on transgender students’ access to school bathrooms and locker rooms, arguing that the U. S. Education Department is illegally forcing local authorities to let children use facilities that correspond to their gender identity.
The complaint alleges that the federal government has violated students’ fundamental right to privacy and parents’ constitutional right to instill moral standards and values in their children.
The lawsuit represents the first legal challenge to the Obama administration’s interpretation of Title IX, a federal anti-discrimination law, as providing transgender students with the right to use the bathroom that matches their gender identity instead of their biological sex.
The plaintiffs include female students who go to a high school that, under pressure from the Education Department, allowed a transgender girl to change in a girls locker room, according to the lawsuit, which concerns Palatine Township High School District 211.
The complaint says that the plaintiffs are afraid of seeing a “male in a state of undress” and “are afraid of being seen by, and being forced to share intimate spaces with, a male while they are in various states of undress.”
“Every day these girls go to school, they experience embarrassment, humiliation, anxiety, fear, apprehension, stress, degradation and loss of dignity because they will have to use the locker room and restroom with a biological male,” the complaint says.
The lawsuit was filed in U.
LEWISTON — Gov. Paul LePage suggested Wednesday that he would be interested in a job in a hypothetical Donald Trump administration and, if he didn’t get one, he would run against Maine’s U. S. Sen. Angus King.
But, in his typical style, the governor then laughed and added: “Believe me, it doesn’t happen unless my wife says ‘Yes.’ ”
LePage made the statements Wednesday to a mostly friendly crowd in Lewiston, his hometown, during a forum in which he criticized the Legislature for several heroin-related bills and said Maine is losing jobs to other states with lower taxes and energy costs.
