Climate activists take to palace
LONDON - Four climate-change activists scaled gates at Queen Elizabeth II's Buckingham Palace home on Saturday and locked themselves to railings in a protest demanding more urgent action to cut greenhouse gas emissions.
London's Metropolitan Police said the four, from the Climate Siren environmentalist movement, had climbed up a gate at the front of the palace and secured themselves to it, sitting with their legs through the railings.
About 100 people watched as the protesters unfurled a banner quoting a 2008 speech by Prince Charles warning about a lack of progress on tacking climate change. The queen was not at the palace Saturday. - AP
Kenya police say bomb item seized
NAIROBI - A Kenyan official says police seized material they believe can be used to assemble a bomb, a day after the U.S. warned of an imminent terrorist attack in Kenya.
A police official, who asked for anonymity because he is not authorized to speak to the press, said Saturday that three suspects dropped a bag and ran after police confronted them near a crowded slum.
The official said police found 13 pounds of ammonium nitrate and other items they believe can be used to make a bomb. Officials believe ammonium nitrate was used for a bomb that killed one and injured 32 in Nairobi last month.
Al-Qaeda linked al-Shabab militants from Somalia have threatened to retaliate after Kenya sent troops to Somalia to pursue the militants. - AP
Roof collapses at mall in Canada
ELLIOT LAKE, Ontario - A roof has partially collapsed at a busy mall in Canada, prompting an evacuation and a search for anyone who might have been injured.
A portion of the roof that serves as a parking area crumbled Saturday afternoon, exposing metal and concrete supports at the Algo Centre Mall in Elliot Lake.
Joe Drazil, a store employee, said everybody was cleared from the mall. The collapse triggered a gas leak and prompted emergency officials to shut off the mall's power. - AP
