Mexican national sentenced to 30 years in US ‘Fast and Furious’ case

A Mexican national who pleaded guilty to first-degree murder in the shooting death of a US Border Patrol agent in a late-night gunfight near the Arizona border in 2010 was sentenced on Monday to 30 years in federal prison.

Manuel Osorio-Arellanes, 37, was sentenced during a hearing in US District Court in Tucson to 360 months in prison with credit for 38 months served.

The case drew international attention when two AK-47s found at the scene were traced back to the Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms and Explosives failed "Fast and Furious" gun investigation.

‘The Square’ Film On Egypt’s Revolution Will Not Be Shown In Egypt

CAIRO (RNS) There’s a lot anyone can learn from Jehane Noujaim’s Oscar-nominated documentary “The Square,” an examination of the 18-day uprising that toppled President Hosni Mubarak.

But Egyptians may be least able to benefit from its lessons. So far, the film has not been approved for screening here.

A more “reasonable” stateside auction showed the shoes commanding $15,000 — and dozens of eager bidders.
