American Scene: Prosecutor: Blood of Afghan victims found on U.S. soldier
JOINT BASE LEWIS-McCHORD — The soldier accused of killing 16 villagers in a nighttime rampage in Afghanistan returned to his base wearing a cape and with the blood of his victims on his rifle, belt, shirt and pants, a military prosecutor said Monday.
Staff Sgt. Robert Bales was incredulous when fellow U.S. soldiers drew their weapons on him when he returned to Camp Belambay in southern Afghanistan in March, prosecutor Lt. Col. Jay Morse said as a preliminary hearing opened at Joint Base Lewis-McChord, Wash.
Sgt. Bales, 39, has been charged with 16 counts of premeditated murder and six counts of attempted murder in one of the worst atrocities of the Iraq and Afghanistan wars. Nine of the victims were children. The hearing will help determine whether the case goes to a court martial.
Study: Vitamins help with cancer, not heart disease
LOS ANGELES — Multivitamins might help lower the risk for cancer in healthy older men but do not affect their chances of developing heart disease, new research suggests.
Two other studies found fish oil didn’t work for an irregular heartbeat condition called atrial fibrillation, even though it is thought to help certain people with heart disease or high levels of fats called triglycerides in their blood.
The bottom line: Dietary supplements have varied effects and whether one is right for you may depend on your personal health profile, diet and lifestyle.
The studies were presented Monday at an American Heart Association conference in Los Angeles.
Fire shuts down stretch of major freeway
SAN BERNARDINO — A wildfire erupted Monday in a Southern California mountain pass, shutting down a major interstate to Las Vegas and forcing the evacuation of a community of ranch homes.
The blaze broke out as the region baked under the influence of a Santa Ana condition producing hot, dry air, winds of 10 mph and gusts of about 25 mph.
Interstate 15, the major route between Southern California and Las Vegas, was shut down in both directions, forcing cars and trucks to divert to narrow side roads to make their way out of Cajon Pass, about 60 miles east of Los Angeles.
