Igor regains strength, now tropical storm

Igor has regained tropical storm strength as it moves across the open Atlantic Ocean.
The U.S. National Hurricane Center in Miami says the storm could become a hurricane by Sunday. Igor remained far from land and was about 465 miles (750 kilometers) west of the Cape Verde Islands.
The storm's maximum sustained winds Friday were near 40 mph (65 kph). It was moving to the west at 16 mph (26 kph).
