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.

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.

With the crack of metal against wood, and a rumble that briefly shook the sidewalk, the ornate molding that pointed skyward from the roof of the Louis Street house disappeared Tuesday morning into the jaws of an excavator's bucket. Within an hour, most of the building was on the street in a pile of bricks and debris, soon to be hauled away. The long-vacant house at 1510 Louis in Camden's Whitman Park neighborhood, one of many that officials say have harbored crime over the years, was gone by Tuesday afternoon.

TO HER FAMILY, 16-year-old Zaria Estes is a "considerate and caring" girl who likes tuna fish and dancing and doesn't always keep her room clean. But to Abbey Luffey's family, Estes is the cold and calculating monster who attacked Luffey, a Temple University student, last March as Luffey walked with her boyfriend on the edge of campus. As she and her friends hunted prey for their sadistic game of "knock a bitch down," Estes bashed Luffey in the face with a brick, leaving her with a broken jaw, palate and teeth - and a shattered sense of security.

MILFORD, Pa. - For nearly 20 minutes, the packed courtroom sat in near silence, transfixed by the grainy images on three small screens. The video had been recorded by surveillance cameras inside and outside the state police barracks at Blooming Grove the night of Sept. 12, as troopers began what was supposed to be a routine shift change. One shows Cpl. Bryon Dickson cracking open the door to leave the building and falling almost instantly from a bullet fired out of the darkness.

A DRIED PUDDLE of blood remained on Pine Street yesterday between the curb and a gray Audi parked near 46th. Sad, residents agreed, but from what they'd heard it seemed that the police officer had no choice. An off-duty cop walking his Pekingese about 7 p.m. Saturday opened fire on an unleashed Cane Corso that attacked his dog and then bit him when he tried to intervene, police said. Neighbors reported hearing between four and six shots. Internal Affairs is investigating, as it does whenever a police officer discharges a weapon, but the shooting appears to have been justified, according to Officer Christine O'Brien, a police spokeswoman.
