RIO DE JANEIRO -- Left-leaning President Dilma Rousseff is re-elected in the tightest race Brazil has seen since its return to democracy three decades ago, giving the juggernaut Workers' Party its fourth-straight presidential victory and the chance to extend its social transformation of the globe's fifth-largest country.

TIXTLA, Mexico -- Night is the most difficult time at the Rural Normal School of Ayotzinapa, where families have stayed on thin, bare mattresses in classrooms since 43 students went missing a month ago.

SAN DIEGO -- Luis Enrique Monroy-Bracamonte had a lot to hide. He was living in the U.S. illegally even though he had been convicted in Arizona for selling drugs and twice deported to Mexico. His background would have almost certainly flagged him to be expelled from the country again, but he managed to stay under the radar until his arrest Friday on suspicion of murder, attempted murder and carjacking in the deaths of two sheriff's deputies during a shooting rampage in Northern California.

PORT-AU-PRINCE, Haiti -- The walled compound where former Haitian President Jean-Bertrand Aristide lives in seclusion under police guard has become a rallying point for hundreds of people who still idolize a champion of the impoverished masses who was twice ousted from power and now faces the threat of arrest. Rumors of an impending arrest have fueled several violent clashes with police and have heightened tension in the country where the constitutionally required legislative elections have been postponed for more than a year.
