FILE - In this July 18, 2013 file photo abortion rights supporters demonstrate outside the Capitol auditorium in Austin, Texas, after Gov. Rick Perry signed sweeping abortion restrictions that forced the closure of several clinics by requiring doctors who perform abortions to have admitting privileges at a nearby hospital. A federal appeals court on Thursday 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."

Police say six people were arrested Wednesday March 26, 2014, 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.
