Forces Loyal to President Hadi Halt Houthi Push Towards Yemen's Aden

Forces loyal to Yemeni President Abd-Rabbu Mansour Hadi drove Houthi fighters from two towns they had seized hours earlier on Tuesday, thwarting an advance by the Shi'ite fighters towards the southern city of Aden where Hadi is believed to have taken refuge in a presidential compound, NBC News reported. Other Houthi units entered the Red Sea port of al-Mukha overnight placing the Iranian-backed fighters a short drive from the Bab al-Mandeb strait, a sealane vital to oil shipments, security officials and residents said.

Woman Who Dated Robert Durst: "Something Was Wrong"

Linda Walker Zevallos, a Dallas woman who once dated millionaire murder suspect Robert Durst, said she broke off their six-month courtship in 2000 because she sensed "something was wrong," she told NBC News. Zevalos said she met Durst on a flight from New York to Dallas in April 2000, and that he occasionally visited to take her out to restaurants over their six months together. But she had already stopped dating Durst by the time that one of Durst's close friends, Susan Berman, was found fatally shot in her home in Beverly Hills, California. Durst was charged with first-degree murder this month in Berman's death. Read »

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 »
