Man charged with use of ricin as a weapon
James Everett Dutschke, a 41-year-old man from Mississippi, has been charged with possession and use of a biological agent as a weapon after letters with grains of ricin were sent to President Barack Obama and other government officials. Ricin is a potentially lethal poison made from castor beans, and caused panic as the letters were discovered soon after the Boston Marathon bombings. The letters are unrelated, but the investigation will continue as Dutschke is expected to appear in a U.S. District Court this week.
50 survivors found in Bangladesh building rubble
More than 360 people were killed after an eight-story building collapsed in Bangladesh last Wednesday. While many families are still desperately searching for their missing loved ones, 50 more survivors were discovered and rescued on Friday, including a woman, who gave birth under the debris, and her newborn infant. Fire service officials lowered food and water into the rubble in order to sustain the survivors until they were rescued. The rescue process has caused rescuers to delay their plans to use heavy cranes and equipment to remove the debris.
Boston Bombing victims leave hospitals
Two weeks after the Boston Marathon bombings, hospital officials say that the number of people being treated for injuries is steadily dropping. Three were killed in the bombings, while the estimated number of injuries has reached more than 260. Victims were sent to 26 different hospitals in the area. Beth Israel Deaconess Medical Center, which also treated bombing suspect Dzhohkar Tsarnaev, currently has six out of the original 20 patients following the attack; all six are in good condition. Tsarnaev was moved on Friday from the hospital to a federal prison medical center.
