|Second trial begins over occupation of Oregon wildlife refuge - |
By Courtney Sherwood PORTLAND, Ore. (Reuters) - A prosecutor told jurors on Tuesday that four men who took part in the armed occupation of a federal wildlife refuge in Oregon last year in a land rights protest were on trial for their actions, not their beliefs. Last October, another trial over the 41-day standoff ended with the acquittal of anti-government activist Ammon Bundy and six of his followers, who cast their protest as a patriotic act of civil disobedience in opposition to U.S. government control over millions of acres of public lands in the West. Jason Patrick, of Georgia, Duane Ehmer of Oregon, Jake Ryan of Montana and Darryl Thorn of Washington state all face multiple charges of trespassing, conspiracy to impede federal employees through intimidation and tampering with vehicles and equipment at the Malheur National Wildlife Refuge in rural eastern Oregon.
|No evidence of shooter at Houston hospital: police - |
Police swarmed a Houston hospital on Tuesday after reports of a shooting but found no evidence any weapon had been fired and said no one was injured in the incident.

"We have not found any evidence of a shooter yet," Houston Police Chief Art Acevedo told reporters outside the hospital.
|Trump's new security advisor differs from him on Russia, other key issues - |
By John Walcott WASHINGTON (Reuters) - U.S. President Donald Trump has shown little patience for dissent, but that trait is likely to be tested by his new national security adviser, Army Lieutenant General H.R. McMaster. McMaster is joining the White House staff with views on Russia, counterterrorism, strengthening the military and other major security issues that diverge not only from those of the Trump loyalists, but also from those the president himself has expressed. A military intellectual whose ideas have been shaped more by experience than by emotion, more by practice than by politics, and more by intellect than by impulse may also find himself in political terrain that may be as alien, and perhaps as hostile, to him as the sands and cities of Afghanistan and Iraq were.
|Firebrand Milo quits Breitbart News after child sex remarks - |
By Laila Kearney NEW YORK (Reuters) - Provocative far-right commentator Milo Yiannopoulos resigned on Tuesday as a senior editor of the Breitbart News website after he was vilified and lost a book deal over comments that condoned certain intimate relations between men and young teenage boys. Yiannopoulos thanked Breitbart for letting him transmit conservative and libertarian ideas to an audience that otherwise would never have heard them, but said he did not want his "poor choice of words" to detract from his colleagues' important work. For me, now, that means stepping aside." Yiannopoulos was banned from Twitter last year after making remarks on race, religion and sex that incited racial attacks on an African-American actress.
|North Carolina governor, attorney general seek to end voting law case - |
WINSTON-SALEM, N.C. (Reuters) - North Carolina's Democratic governor and attorney general on Tuesday withdrew a request for a U.S. Supreme Court review of a state voting law struck down last year by an appeals court that found it intentionally discriminated against African-Americans. In moving to end the state's defense of the Republican-backed 2013 law, Governor Roy Cooper and Attorney General Josh Stein said they also discharged outside counsel hired to defend North Carolina. The governor's office said the state Board of Elections, its individual members and its executive director remained in the case, which was appealed to the Supreme Court in December.
