The son of a leader of Mexico's feared Sinaloa cartel has been arrested in the United States for drug trafficking, prosecutors said Friday. Serafin Zambada-Ortiz, 23, was detained after being stopped Wednesday as he tried to enter America at Arizona's Nogales border crossing, said the US Attorney's Office for southern California. He appeared in court Thursday, and is due back before a judge on Monday in Tucson, said spokeswoman Kelly Thornton. Zambada-Ortiz is the son of Sinaloa cartel leader Ismael Zambada-Garcia, also known as Mayo.
TACLOBAN, Philippines (AP) — Hoping to lift the spirits of thousands of people left homeless by a deadly typhoon in the Philippines, cable operators on Saturday set up TV screens inside an astrodome, near a church and in other landmarks in the devastated region to broadcast live boxing icon Manny Pacquiao's comeback fight.
A federal jury on Friday ordered two media companies to pay $1.2 million to a freelance photojournalist for their unauthorized use of photographs he posted to Twitter. The jury found that Agence France-Presse and Getty Images willfully violated the Copyright Act when they used photos Daniel Morel took in his native Haiti after the 2010 earthquake that killed more than 250,000 people, Morel's lawyer, Joseph Baio, said. "We believe that this is the first time that these defendants or any other major digital licensor of photography have been found liable for willful violations of the Copyright Act," Baio said in an email. U.S. District Judge Alison Nathan, who presided over the trial, had ruled in January that the two companies were liable for infringement.
