The U. S. Attorney's Office has scheduled a press conference Friday with Acting Assistant Attorney General Vanita Gupta and Albuquerque Mayor Richard Berry about the Police Department, but no details have been released.
The March shooting of a homeless man who authorities later said was struggling with mental illness helped spark widespread calls for reform and protests throughout the city.
Liberia's president opened one of the country's largest Ebola treatment centers in Monrovia on Friday, remembering the days when "the dying, the sick, the dead who could not picked up on time" as officials hope the disease is on the decline in this West African country.
Some believe it's a sign that the Ebola outbreak is finally on the wane in Liberia, but others believe Sirleaf's order that the bodies of Ebola victims in the capital be cremated has led to people with symptoms hiding at home, because cremation violates traditions.
"MSF teams are looking into the reasons for this; a widespread aversion to the government's mandatory cremation policy, poor ambulance and referral systems, changes in behavior, and other factors may play a role," the aid group said.
Assistant Health Minister Tolbert Nyenswah, who heads the government's Ebola response, told The Associated Press the JFK Ebola medical team and a team of Cuban doctors will be in charge of the new center, located in Congo Town in eastern Monrovia.
The United States has promised up to 4,000 American troops for Liberia and is building 17 treatment centers and helping to train thousands of health care workers.
For the first time since 2002, the South Carolina National Guard has no Army or Air Guard combat units on overseas deployments that began after the 9/11 terrorist attacks.
The one-star Army general is the No. 2 commander of the state's Army and Air National Guard and is in charge of keeping its units trained, ready and equipped.
Most of the deployments involved engineer, aviation, and military police units, King said.
King said the South Carolina combat missions in the post-9/11 era began in 2002, when F-16 jets with the 169th Fighter Wing were sent to Southwest Asia to support the fighting in Afghanistan.
King said the first South Carolina Army National Guard unit sent overseas came in 2003 when the 122nd Engineer Battalion from Edgefield was deployed to Iraq.
If beauty played a role deciding Nevada's highest point, Wheeler Peak, crown jewel of Great Basin National Park at the eastern edge of the state, would be the winner hands down.
 geography and topography conspired to make it Boundary Peak on the state's opposite border — a nondescript, scree-covered bump at the end of California that rises about 77 feet higher than picturesque Wheeler.
Keyes said having the state's highest point is "kind of a bonus" for Nevada's least-populous county because the peak attracts hikers and campers who provide "a little boost to the economy."
Esmeralda County residents are so proud of their peak that a few years back, before Keyes joined the commission, county leaders rejected a push by conservative activist Chuck Muth to have Boundary renamed in honor of Ronald Reagan.
A nasty boundary dispute north of Lake Tahoe prompted a full survey of Nevada's western border in the early 1870s, and that produced the so-called Von Schmidt line, which shifted the border to the east of Boundary Peak, though only for about 20 years.
The country's mining and energy ministry says the collapse occurred at about 4 p.m. Thursday with a sudden burst of water into the mine in the northwestern state of Antioquia.
The agency says in a statement issued Friday that a specialized mine rescue team as well as other searchers are working at the scene.
A Prince George's County man has been sentenced to 15 years in prison in the armed robbery of a cellphone store.
Prosecutors say Bailey walked into an Oxon Hill cellphone store on July 3 last year, brandished a gun and ordered everyone to the floor.
