PETALUMA, Calif. (AP) — Some have lost loved ones. Many have survived near-death experiences. Others have lost their homes and a lifetime of possessions.

WASHINGTON (AP) — President Donald Trump has pulled bereaved military families into a painful political fight of his own making, going so far Tuesday as to cite the death of his chief of staff's son in Afghanistan to question whether Barack Obama and other presidents did enough to honor the military dead.

HONOLULU (AP) — A federal judge in Hawaii blocked most of President Donald Trump's latest travel ban Tuesday, just hours before it was set to take effect, saying the revised order "suffers from precisely the same maladies as its predecessor."

LAS VEGAS (AP) — The cancellation of scheduled TV interviews last week by a hotel security guard wounded by the Las Vegas shooter raised questions Tuesday about the location of a key witness to the deadliest shooting in modern U.S.

SAN DIEGO (AP) — Northern California homeowners allege in a lawsuit filed Tuesday that Pacific Gas & Electric Co. failed to adequately protect its power lines before the region's deadly wildfires, a theory that state investigators are considering as they try to determine the cause.

ANNAPOLIS, Md. (AP) — A white man was indicted Tuesday on a hate crime charge for allegedly stabbing a black college student to death "because of his race," a Maryland prosecutor said.

A woman drowned her infant son and his 5-year-old half brother in a bathtub hours after she called police and told them she was worried about being deported, a Delaware police chief said Tuesday.

RALEIGH, N.C. (AP) — Army Sgt. Bowe Bergdahl made a last-minute argument Tuesday that President Donald Trump has reaffirmed his criticism of the soldier — preventing him from receiving a fair sentence on charges he endangered comrades in Afghanistan.

BOSTON (AP) — Is a man charged with plotting to behead conservative blogger Pamela Geller a dangerous Islamic State group supporter who sought to wage war on the U.S.? Or is he a lost young man who never meant any harm? That's what a panel of 12 jurors in Boston's federal courthouse has been tasked with figuring out in the case of 28-year-old David Wright.

SONOMA, Calif. (AP) — Outside one of the first shops to reopen for business on an empty central square in California wine country, clerk Rhiannon Lorenzini swept the sidewalks as the sky cleared of ash more than a week after the state's deadliest group of wildfires ignited.

CLEVELAND (AP) — A suburban Cleveland man has pleaded guilty to fatally shooting his daughter while she slept, saying he believed she disrespected his rules by coming home late and not cleaning her room.

AUSTIN, Texas (AP) — The pilot in the deadliest hot air balloon crash in U.S. history was probably impaired by Valium, opioids and cold and allergy medicine when he ignored weather warnings and flew the ride into a power line, investigators said Tuesday.

NEW YORK (AP) — A furor over the Manhattan district attorney's decision to shut down a groping investigation of Harvey Weinstein two years ago is putting a spotlight on the DA's practice of taking campaign contributions from defense attorneys.

WASHINGTON (AP) — Two Chinese nationals have been indicted on charges they manufactured tons of fentanyl and other powerful narcotics that were then peddled in the United States, killing at least four people and seriously injuring five others, Justice Department officials announced Tuesday.

LINCOLN, Neb. (AP) — A Nebraska man accused of helping his Florida girlfriend kill herself after she told him she had cancer appears to have taken her story at face value and didn't push her to seek medical treatment or mental-health counseling, authorities said Tuesday.

KANSAS CITY, Mo. (AP) — A Missouri appeals court on Tuesday that vacated a $72 million award to an Alabama woman who claimed her use of Johnson & Johnson products that contained talcum contributed to her ovarian cancer has thrown the fate of awards in similar cases into doubt.

LINCOLN, Neb. (AP) — The Latest on the case of a Nebraska man charged with assisting in his girlfriend's suicide (all times local): 1 p.m.

BATON ROUGE, La. (AP) — A suspected serial killer was arrested in Louisiana last week after he called a sheriff's office and claimed responsibility for a string of shootings that killed three men and wounded a fourth, according to a law enforcement official.

HUNTSVILLE, Texas (AP) — A stick was used to tightly twist a cord from a window blind around the neck of a 21-year-old woman found strangled and dumped in the drive-thru lane of a Houston Dairy Queen in 1992.

PENSACOLA, Fla. (AP) — A 325-pound (150-kilogram) Florida woman is charged with killing her 9-year-old cousin by sitting on the child as punishment.

BOSTON (AP) — A new study inspired by Boston's early experiments with self-driving cars finds that the technology could ease congestion, but might also lead to more cars on the road and further encourage urban sprawl.

FORT BRAGG, N.C. (AP) — Army Sgt. Bowe Bergdahl's guilty plea to charges of endangering comrades in Afghanistan has set up a dramatic sentencing hearing that could land him in prison for life.

FAIRFAX, Va. (AP) — An already disturbing case about a 17-year-old Muslim girl killed as she walked to her mosque took another unsettling turn after an indictment alleged the victim was raped as well.

GREENVILLE, S.C. (AP) — President Donald Trump waded back into Southern politics Monday, showering praise on one of his earliest supporters, South Carolina Gov.

FORT LAUDERDALE, Fla. (AP) — At first there was no hint of distress in the 911 calls, no sense of a crisis unfolding. But newly released emergency calls from a sweltering Florida nursing home that lost its air conditioning to Hurricane Irma showed staffers becoming increasingly agitated by a disaster that would eventually claim 14 elderly lives.
