KABUL, Afghanistan - Defense Secretary Chuck Hagel got a stark taste of the challenges that continue to bedevil Afghanistan, as insurgents carried out two deadly bombings Saturday, one within earshot of the Pentagon chief. The Afghan government, meanwhile, abruptly canceled a ceremony scheduled for Saturday that had been meant to show that Kabul and Washington had finally reached a deal for the handover of a U.S. military prison. Afghan President Hamid Karzai at the last minute balked at the proposed terms of the handover of the Parwan Detention Facility, Afghan and U.S. officials said, dashing hopes that a resolution of a contentious issue that has poisoned the relationship between the two countries was in sight.

On December 12 at approximately 2:30 a.m. I was awaken from a sound sleep of a vicious dog attacking and mauling to death Joey, a stray cat on the 600 block of East Flora Street. The sound of Joey screaming for help was horrible. The owner of this vicious dog did not even have the dog on a leash and did not even try to stop the attack. Joey never bothered anyone and he did not deserve to die like he did. This was a senseless killing.The dog's owner is a heartless human being for allowing this to happen.

A Frankford teenager yesterday was found guilty of robbery, riot and indecent assault for his part in an attack by more than 15 black youths on a white woman who was beaten, robbed and stripped of all but her bra. After issuing the verdict against David Fletcher, 19, of the 4700 block of Hawthorne Street, Common Pleas Court Judge Gene D. Cohen said, "I am particularly outraged by this case. " Cohen did not find enough evidence to convict Fletcher of a charge of ethnic intimidation, although police had said the April 10 nighttime attack was racially motivated.

A Philadelphia man was sentenced yesterday to 11 1/2 to 23 months in Delaware County Prison for sexually assaulting a 24-year-old Drexel Hill woman at a department store in January. Donald Ranson, 48, of the 700 block of North 46th Street, pleaded guilty in Delaware County Court to assaulting the woman in a fitting room at Macy's in Springfield Mall. Ranson was a store supervisor. The attack occurred before the store opened on a Saturday. Ranson approached the woman, who worked as a housekeeper, in the fitting room and asked her to have sex with him. When she refused, Ranson tried to force himself on her; she broke free and ran. Later, he told her that he would try again and threatened to use a gun if she did not remain quiet.

APOCALYPSE '91: THE EMPIRE STRIKES BLACK Public Enemy. Columbia. Talk of Public Enemy usually centers on their incendiary words. And no wonder. On their fourth and latest album, PE, the self-described "prophets of rage," skewer black radio for not playing enough rap, attack Arizona for refusing to celebrate Martin Luther King Day, eviscerate malt liquor companies for targeting black consumers and put down the church as a pacifying distraction in the black community. And that's just for starters.

MEMBERS of Kappa Alpha Psi have waged a social media campaign against Donald Trump - and it's not just for the reasons you might think. U.S. District Judge Gonzalo P. Curiel belongs to the predominantly African American fraternity, with headquarters in the 2300 block of North Broad Street. Yes, you read that correctly. He's a Nupe. Curiel, you may recall, is the judge whom the GOP presidential candidate has accused of being too biased to preside over lawsuits involving Trump University because of his Hispanic ethnicity.

WASHINGTON - Bob Casey is getting into fighting shape. The soft-spoken Democratic senator, usually found holding press calls on wonky topics such as home heating aid, early childhood education, or the intricacies of Middle East policy, has spent recent weeks at the heavy bag, pounding at the hottest political battles of the moment. He stood alongside Democratic leaders for a smackdown linking Republican senators to Donald Trump. He blitzed Pennsylvania rallying support for Hillary Clinton.

A Telemundo 62 news reporter was punched, slapped, and pulled to the ground this week while doing a live shot in front of City Hall. Iris Delgado was wrapping up her report on the soda tax proposal at 11:03 p.m. Wednesday when a woman in a green T-shirt tried to interrupt. "Excuse me, excuse me," the woman told Delgado, who appeared to ignore the looming presence to her right. When Delgado finished her presentation, the woman without warning slapped the back of the reporter's head and followed it up with a right to her face, and just as quickly began pulling Delgado's hair to drive her to the ground.

ISSUE | CAMPAIGN 2016 Trump's Waterloo? Highly offensive, telling, and a grave miscalculation: All these descriptions come to mind concerning Donald Trump' criticism of Gonzalo Curiel, the federal judge overseeing the case against Trump University, as "a hater" who has an "absolute conflict" in handling the case because he is "of Mexican heritage" ("Trump's attacks on judge spark concerns," Sunday). Offensive because Trump is impugning the professional reputation and integrity of a man born in the United States whose only supposed offense is that he is of Mexican descent.
