Passengers are shown getting checked in before a flight Thursday March 27, 2014 at Los Angeles International Airport in Los Angeles. Police say six people were arrested Wednesday March 26, after officers served more than two dozen search warrants after a months-long investigation into baggage theft at Los Angeles International Airport. Officials say those arrested were primarily employees or ex-employees of contracting companies hired to handle luggage and do not work for the airport itself.

Admission is free and there are rotating exhibits of art from Frick's personal collection as well as a car and carriage museum that features a 1914 Rolls Royce and a 1903 electric car. The center is also on the edge of a 644 acre public park that features trails, playgrounds and lawn bowling greens. (AP Photo/Gene J.

A six- or seven-block area along Penn Avenue features a large fresh fish market that also sells sushi and sandwiches, Italian bakeries, Vietnamese noodle shops, and stores specializing in Italian, Mexican, Oriental, Polish, Greek, and Middle Eastern food. There are also specialty coffee and tea shops, vegetarian restaurants and neighborhood bars, all fun to browse. (AP Photo/Gene J.

(AP Photo/Richard Drew) Phyllis DiGiaimo, an assistant to lawyer Randy Mastro, hands out copies of the executive report before a news conference on Thursday, March 27, 2014 in New York.  The taxpayer-funded report released Thursday concludes the September lane closures near the heavily traveled George Washington Bridge were intended to target a local mayor. But there was no evidence found that it was because the mayor wouldn't endorse New Jersey Gov. Chris Christie. The report finds that former Port Authority of New York and New Jersey official David Wildstein and ex-Christie aide Bridget Kelly were behind the closures. The lawyers also found no evidence that Christie tied Superstorm Sandy aid for Hoboken to support for a private redevelopment project. Federal prosecutors are investigating the lane closings. State lawmakers are also conducting their own probe.

Mastro, with the law firm hired by New Jersey Gov. Chris Christie, said Thursday that the governor was not involved in a plot to create gridlock near a major bridge as part of a political retribution scheme.

A federal appeals court on Thursday March 27, 2014, upheld Texas' tough new abortion restrictions that shuttered many of the abortions clinics in the state. A panel of judges at the New Orleans-based 5th Circuit Court of Appeals overturned a lower court judge who said the rules violate the U.S. Constitution and served no medical purpose. In its opinion, the appeals court said the law "on its face does not impose an undue burden on the life and health of a woman." (AP Photo/Tony Gutierrez)
