George Zimmerman Blames Obama for Racial Tension

George Zimmerman, who was acquitted in the 2012 shooting of unarmed black teenager Trayvon Martin, said that President Barack Obama "overstretched, overreached, even broke the law" in allowing the Justice Department to pursue a civil rights investigation of him, NBC News reported. In a videotaped question-and-answer session with his lawyer, Zimmerman said Obama's public response to the shooting increased racial tensions in the United States. He also said the government should have investigated potential violations of his civil rights, including death threats he said were made against him and his family. Zimmerman has maintained that he was acting in self-defense when he killed Martin during a Feb. 26, 2012 encounter in a gated community in Sanford, Florida. Read »

German, French Leaders Head to Plane Crash Site

French and German leaders are visiting the site of the Germanwings plane crash in the French Alps, as investigators hope to glean clues from the voice recorder in the plane's damaged black box. French President Francois Hollande and German Chancellor Angela Merkel were arriving in the area Wednesday to meet with search and recovery crews. Attention has turned, meanwhile, to the black box recovered from the plane — it's damaged but could help investigators determine what caused Flight 4u9525 to descend for eight minutes before crashing, likely killing all 150 people aboard, an official said. "The scene is not like a normal crash," a rescue helicopter co-ordinator said. "We normally find big pieces; there are lots of little pieces. There are no wings; no cockpit. Nothing." Meanwhile, Germanwings said there were "occasional flight disruptions" within its network due to "crew members who decided not to operate aircraft" following the crash. Read »
