Calls to reopen Buddy Holly air crash probe
US air accident investigators are reviewing a petition to reopen a probe into the February 1959 plane crash that killed rock 'n' roll pioneers Buddy Holly, Hollywood Walk of Fame star seen here, Ritchie Valens and J.P. "Big Bopper" RichardsonUS air accident investigators are reviewing a petition to reopen a probe into the February 1959 plane crash that killed rock 'n' roll pioneers Buddy Holly, Ritchie Valens and J.P. "Big Bopper" Richardson. The iconic musicians and their 21-year-old pilot were killed when their chartered Beechcraft Bonanza crashed soon after takeoff at night from Mason City, Iowa amid gusty wintery weather. In a blog Wednesday, the National Transportation Safety Board (NTSB) acknowledged receiving a petition asking it to go back on the September 1959 findings of the US government's Civil Aeronautics Board. "If the NTSB determines that this petition meets the criteria, then we will examine any new evidence presented and determine its merit," it said.

'I'm going to die,' survivors recall Boston horror
A large sign with the names of the Boston Marathon bombing victims and thanking law enforcement is placed at a makeshift memorial for victims near the site of the bombings on April 21, 2013, in Boston, MassachusettsSurvivors of the Boston Marathon bombings choked back tears Wednesday as they told how a day of celebration turned into a horrific urban war zone of torn limbs and burnt flesh. Victims recalled smoke, chaos and terrified screams as they lay in excruciating pain fearing death from the deadly blasts near the finish line at the 2013 race. Karen McWatters, a mother of two who lost a leg, told how she held hands with Krystle Campbell, one of the three people who were killed, and how she felt life ebbing from her close friend. Despite agonizing injuries, McWatters said she pulled herself over burning pieces of shrapnel to get close to her friend.

'It was him' Boston bombings trial hears
Boston Marathon bombing suspect DzhokharTsarnaev faces the death penalty if convicted of killing three people and wounding 264 in April 2013Lawyers for the student on trial for the Boston marathon bombings bluntly admitted Wednesday that he was responsible for the attacks, but insisted he had been led astray by his brother. Dzhokhar Tsarnaev could face the death penalty and -- while survivors recounted the carnage in graphic detail -- the defense sought to put the bulk of the blame on his slain older sibling. Prosecutors said Tsarnaev carried out the attacks to avenge the deaths of fellow Muslims overseas after learning how to build pressure-cooker bombs through an Al-Qaeda publication. The Kyrgyzstan-born US citizen faces the death penalty if convicted of the bombings which killed three people and wounded 264, on April 15, 2013.

House committee subpoenas Clinton emails in Benghazi probe
FILE - In this Oct. 18, 2011, file photo, then-Secretary of State Hillary Rodham Clinton checks her Blackberry from a desk inside a C-17 military plane upon her departure from Malta, in the Mediterranean Sea, bound for Tripoli, Libya. Clinton used a personal email account during her time as secretary of state, rather than a government-issued email address, potentially hampering efforts to archive official government documents required by law. Clinton's office said nothing was illegal or improper about her use of the non-government account and that she believed her business emails to State Department and other .gov accounts would be archived in accordance with government rules. (AP Photo/Kevin Lamarque, Pool, File)WASHINGTON (AP) A House committee investigating the Benghazi, Libya, attacks issued subpoenas Wednesday for the emails of Hillary Rodham Clinton, who used a private account exclusively for official business when she was secretary of state and also used a computer email server now traced back to her family's New York home.
