    An Internet video purports to show the beheading of Steven Sotloff by the Islamic State group. Sotloff, who freelanced for Time and Foreign Policy magazines, had last been seen in Syria in August 2013 until he appeared in a video released online last month by the Islamic State group that showed the beheading of fellow American journalist James Foley. In that video, Sotloff was threatened with death unless the U.S. stopped airstrikes on the group in Iraq.

    Officials say the 32 teens who slipped under a fence and out of a Nashville youth detention center last night could face escape charges. Nine remain on the run. The Tennessee Department of Children's Services says the teens overwhelmed staff members at the Woodland Hills Youth Development Center and kicked out a metal panel under a window to get out of the building, before lifting a weak portion of the chain-link fence. Some of the 23 who have been recaptured were turned in by their parents.

The settlement, which is subject to court approval, will be paid into a trust until appeals are resolved over the next two years. Halliburton was BP's cement contractor on the drilling rig that exploded in the Gulf in April 2010, killing 11 workers and triggering the largest offshore oil spill in U.S. history.

    The 50-day war with Israel apparently hasn't hurt the popularity of Hamas among Palestinians in the West Bank and the Gaza Strip.
