Thousands Ready For Marathon
BOSTON (AP) - State and local officials are hoping for a safe but still enjoyable day for the 36,000 runners planning to participate in the Boston Marathon and the hundreds of thousands of spectators.
One year after two homemade bombs killed three people and wounded more than 260 others, the Boston Marathon returns to the streets for its 118th edition Monday.
PERTH, Australia (AP) - A Malaysia Airlines jetliner bound for India has been forced to make an emergency landing after one of its tires burst on takeoff.
All 159 passengers and seven crew members arrived safely back in Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia, around 2 a.m. Monday, about four hours after the plane took off for Bangalore, India.
Meanwhile, on Sunday, Malaysia's deputy foreign affairs minister met with the relatives of the passengers of the missing Flight 370 to talk about where to go next.
They talked about financial assistance, and the minister says a fund could possibly be set up by the government or Malaysia Airlines.
