    MOSCOW (AP) — Russia’s defense ministry says the troops that were deployed to Kazakhstan as violent demonstrations shook the country have returned home. The troops were part of a force sent as peacekeepers by the Collective Treaty Security Organization, a Russia-led alliance of six former Soviet states. The CSTO approved the force of more than 2,000 on Jan. 5 at the request of Kazakh President Kassym-Jomart Tokayev. The demonstrations started on Jan. 2 to protest a sharp rise in fuel prices. They quickly spread nationwide and descended into violence within several days. Protesters stormed government buildings and set them ablaze, and dozens of people were killed in clashes with the country’s security forces. The Russian Defense Ministry said Saturday that all of its planes carrying troops had returned. It was not clear whether troops from other CSTO countries remain in Kazakhstan.

    When Los Angeles police Lt. Rex Ingram first read a police report written by Officer Fernando Arroyos, he realized the young L.A. native and newbie on the force was something special. For starters, he could write better than most of his LAPD peers, and some of his bosses. “So, I asked him where he went to school, and he, being humble, says ‘LAUSD’” — or L.A. public schools — Ingram recalled. “And I reply, ‘Which college?’ And he says, ‘Cal Berkeley.’” The anecdote — of a humble man, back in his hometown after going off to college, still shy about his accomplishments even though they shined through in his work — came back to Ingram in a moment of mourning this week, after Arroyos was gunned down Monday night on a South L.A. street not too far from where he grew up. Like many in L.A. who are fatally shot in robberies and other senseless gunfire, Arroyos, 27, was of this city, a young man of color who had potential and a life to live, only to have it snatched...

    Bradley Beal is out for Washington’s game Tuesday night against Oklahoma City after entering health and safety protocols for the second time in less than three weeks. Beal entered the protocols Dec. 23 and returned after a week. He said then that he didn’t have COVID-19 and the absence was due to contact tracing. Beal, who missed a chance to play in the Olympics last year after testing positive, was unvaccinated when the season began. When he returned late last month, he said he’d always kept an open mind about receiving the vaccine and decided to do so for family reasons. Coach Wes Unseld Jr. said Tuesday he thought a test from Monday was flagged, but he didn’t want to say with certainty. He said Beal would need two consecutive negative tests to exit protocol. The Wizards play again Wednesday night, at home against Orlando. ___ More AP NBA: https://apnews.com/hub/NBA and https://twitter.com/AP_Sports Copyright © 2022 The Associated Press.

    NEW ORLEANS (AP) — Mississippi quarterback Matt Corral injured his right leg while being sacked by Baylor’s Cole Maxwell during the first quarter of the Sugar Bowl on Saturday night. After being helped off the field by two trainers, Corral took a couple of paces on his own as he walked into an injury tent behind the bench. Soon after, however, he was carted to the locker room for X-rays and later returned to the field on crutches. Corral, a projected high-round NFL draft pick next spring, has been one of the most exciting players in college football in 2021, passing for 3,339 yards and 20 touchdowns to go with 597 yards and 11 TDs rushing. He never wavered in his decision to play in the Sugar Bowl against Baylor, even as many college players in similar situations opted out of bowl games to minimize their injury risk as they prepare to turn pro. Corral did not shy away from contact during three offensive series he led, taking off and running several times, highlighted by his 15-yard gain in which...

    MEXICO CITY (AP) — The bodies of 15 more migrants killed in a Dec. 9 truck crash in southern Mexico were flown home o Guatemala on Thursday. The remains in brown wood-colored coffins were delivered by a Mexican military C-295 transport aircraft. The Mexican government said that so far, 50 of the 56 migrants killed when a people smuggler’s semi-trailer truck rolled over on a highway have been identified. A total of 25 have been returned to their homelands, with another five expected to be returned soon, it said. Of the 50 identified dead, 37 were from Guatemala, 11 from the Dominican Republic, and one each from El Salvador and Ecuador.

    MILAN (AP) — Italy’s culture minister on Thursday welcomed the return of 201 prized antiquities valued at over 10 million euros ($11 million) that had been located in prestigious U.S. museums and galleries after being illegally trafficked in recent decades. They were among thousands of antiquities seized from traffickers or returned to Italy this year in major operations that also targeted trafficking rings in Belgium, the Netherlands, Switzerland and Germany. Of the 201 works returned by U.S. officials earlier this month, 161 have been repatriated to Italy while 40 are on exhibit at the Italian Consulate General in New York through March 2022. “These artworks will not end up, as has happened many times in the past, all in one big museum,” Culture Minister Dario Franceschini told a press conference. Instead, they will be returned to the places where they were stolen for display in museums there. “This too is a great homecoming operation that will add value to our extraordinary country as a vast museum. They are artworks of absolute importance that will attract people...
    LOS ANGELES -- Arnold Schwarzenegger and Maria Shriver's marriage is officially over more than 10 years after the award-winning journalist petitioned to end her then-25-year marriage to the action star and former California governor.A Los Angeles judge finalized the divorce on Tuesday, court records show.The pair had been married since 1986 when Shriver filed for divorce in 2011 after Schwarzenegger disclosed he had fathered a child with a member of their household staff years earlier.The revelation set off a tabloid frenzy, but Schwarzenegger and Shriver handled their divorce quietly and without lobbing accusations in court or in public.It's not clear why the process took so long. There were virtually no public actions taken in the case between the initial flurry of filings in 2011 and a resumption of court moves in June.Financial details of the settlement were kept confidential. Because the couple's four children together are now all adults, there is no child support or custody arrangement.Settlement papers say that neither owes the other any spousal support, but both reserve the right to seek it through the court in the...
    To offset supply-chain delays, retailers are working hard to quickly get returned items back on shelves for sale, particularly like-new items that were originally purchased online. The Wall Street Journal reports that this year retailers are working harder to get returned items back on shelves for sale when they come back in new or unused condition. As supply chain issues make it harder to restock shelves with fresh items quickly and limit the availability of certain products, stores are beginning to invest in automation, software, and new systems to get returned products available for sale as soon as possible. Returns often are driven by online orders because people cannot see and feel products as they would in a retail store. Shopping waiting to enter a store (Photo by Chip Somodevilla/Getty Images) Retailers like Walmart and American Eagle Outfitters have been investing heavily in new systems that streamline the process of getting returned items back on shelves. Shekar Natarajan, the chief supply-chain officer for the Pittsburgh-based apparel chain, said that the strategy of focusing on optimizing returns as coronavirus lockdowns shut retail stores has...

    "A Border Patrol officer sits inside his car as he guards the US/Mexico border fence, in Nogales, Arizona, on February 9, 2019." The Cavazos family got an early present at the beginning of December, when land seized by the previous administration for its stupid and racist border wall was returned to them by the Biden administration. The land, located along the Rio Grande near Mission, Texas, had belonged to the family for generations when it was taken from them by the previous administration in 2018, Border Report said. “The family thought that Trump leaving office meant this legal battle would end, but their property was still seized earlier this year for border wall construction,” the report continued. But finally this December, the land was returned by the Biden administration, Texas Civil Rights Project said. The organization has represented the family in court. xBREAKING: Our client, Eloisa Cavazos, has just had her land returned to her after fighting against the government’s seizure and border wall construction since 2018. pic.twitter.com/26orWHKAFo— Texas Civil Rights Project (@TXCivilRights) December 7, 2021 “Now that we have successfully stopped the...
