  • AP PHOTOS: History buffs re-enact Holy Land crusader battle

    The year is 1187 and the crusader kingdom of Jerusalem is beginning to collapse. Some 60 history buffs are re-enacting the famed battle near an extinct volcano in northern Israel overlooking the Sea of Galilee, where Saladin's army defeated the crusaders at the end of the 12th century. "It's a direct way of connecting to history, not through books and not through the computer," said Genadiy Niznik, who organized the event and heads the only Israeli chapter of the "living history" trend.

  • Box Office: 'Inside Out' Provides Fourth of July Fireworks Over 'Terminator,' 'Magic Mike XXL'

    By Dave McNary LOS ANGELES (Variety.com) - "Inside Out" delivered the firepower at the five-day holiday weekend box office as it finished in first ahead of "Jurassic World" and new entries "Terminator: Genisys" and "Magic Mike XXL." In a tight race, Disney-Pixar's animated comedy pulled in as estimated $45.3 million in the U.S. over the five days -- giving it $246.2 million stateside in its third week at 4,158 locations. "Inside Out," with Amy Poehler, Mindy Kaling and Bill Hader voicing the emotions of an 11-year-old girl, is showing impressive staying power at multiplexes. Universal's fourth weekend of "Jurassic World" remained a solid draw, three weeks after its record-setting opening.

Chuck de Caro and his wife, Lynne Russell, were in their room when Walton, 27, allegedly tried to rob them, authorities said.

  • U.S. and Iran: the unbearable awkwardness of defending your enemy

    Tehran and Washington, which have called each other the "Great Satan" and a member of the "Axis of Evil" during 36 years of hostility, are more used to exchanging insults than defending each other. The two foes cut diplomatic ties after Iranian revolutionaries seized 52 hostages in Tehran's U.S. embassy during the 1979 Islamic Revolution. Low-enriched uranium can be further enriched to make fissile material for an atomic bomb, and one of the main goals of any nuclear deal is to restrain Iran's production of it.

Hundreds of fans outside St. Mary Magdalene Church in Sandringham, a sprawling royal estate near England's eastern coast, cheered as William and Kate arrived with toddler Prince George and 9-week-old Charlotte, who was in a vintage pram. Following royal tradition, holy water from the River Jordan, where it is said Jesus was baptized by John the Baptist, was used for the baptism.

  • Versace kicks off Paris couture week in style

    Actress Michelle Rodriguez and model Naomi Campbell joined celebrity attendees Sunday at the start of Paris' fall-winter 2015-16 haute couture week — that headlined with Versace. Donatella Versace delivered her strongest show yet for her couture line since its 2012 relaunch, in a fun and frothy collection that mirrored the exuberance of the late '70s and the architecture of Art Nouveau. Wrought-iron bodices, meanwhile, added a touch of aggression to the feminine designs and harked back to the days of late 19th century decorative arts, as seen in the architecture of Paris' metro and its many garden gates.

  • U.S. triumph caps truly global Women's World Cup

    By Simon Evans VANCOUVER (Reuters) - The United States returned to the pinnacle of women's soccer with a 5-2 crushing of Japan in Sunday's Women's World Cup final at the end of a riveting tournament that pushed the sport into new territory. The Americans last triumphed in 1999 but women's soccer is a vastly different sport than it was a decade-and-a-half ago with new nations forging their way into the elite amid an unprecedented level of global interest. As Golden Ball winner Carli Lloyd demonstrated with her astonishing 16 minute hat-trick in the final, including a goal from the half-way line, the women's game is delivering a level of excitement and quality that was non-existent in the 1990s.

  • Former RAW chief's disclosures: On the job even after retirement?

    Dulat has made these disclosures in his book "Kashmir: The Vajpayee Years" and ruffled many a feather by sharing some startling undercover intelligence dealings with both the separatists and the nationalists here. Ever since he was posted in Kashmir in late 1980s initially as an Intelligence Bureau operative, Dulat has had a roller coaster ride, dining and wining (as he claims) with both mainstream and separatist politicians, and encourages one to believe that both sections shared their fears and hopes more freely with the spies of New Delhi than they did with their wives.

  • Evidence mounting that Wawrinka belongs to elite

    By Martyn Herman LONDON (Reuters) - Stanislas Wawrinka still refuses to talk about himself as a member of tennis's elite but the evidence in favour of that argument is becoming increasingly hard to ignore. On Monday the barrel-chested Swiss produced calm and authoritative tennis, plus occasional brilliance, to beat dangerous Belgian David Goffin 7-6(3) 7-6(6) 6-4 and reach the Wimbledon quarter-finals without dropping a set. Frenchman Richard Gasquet is next and, should the form book be adhered to, the 30-year-old fourth seed Wawrinka will reach the Wimbledon semi-finals for the first time in his 42nd consecutive grand slam appearance.
