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.

ANKARA, Turkey - In the second deadly assault on a U.S. diplomatic post in five months, a suicide bomber struck the American Embassy in Ankara on Friday, killing a Turkish security guard in what the White House described as a terrorist attack. Washington immediately warned Americans to stay away from all U.S. diplomatic facilities in Turkey and to be wary in large crowds. The attack drew condemnation from Turkey, the United States, Britain, and other nations. Officials from both Turkey and the United States pledged to work together to fight terrorism.

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.

One of the brightest moments of Katie McGinty's tenure as Pennsylvania's environmental secretary began in Bilbao, Spain. At a recycling conference there in 2003, she began courting a wind-turbine manufacturer, Gamesa, that would eventually invest heavily in Pennsylvania, bringing 1,000 jobs to Bucks and Cambria Counties and a U.S. headquarters to Philadelphia. Luring the company was hailed as a coup for the Rendell administration, won McGinty statewide headlines, and later garnered a mention from Republican Chris Christie as he ran for New Jersey governor.

DEAR ABBY: For health reasons, I had been walking during my lunch break at work. That ended last summer when someone unleashed his dog between his house and his car. The dog saw me on the sidewalk, charged, jumped on me and bit me. Thankfully, I put my arm up, so it only got my arm, but now I'm terrified to walk outside for fear of being attacked again. The bite was nothing compared to the trauma. I'm afraid the fear will be with me for the rest of my life. No one thinks their dog would hurt someone, but I learned the hard way it's not always true.

Pat Toomey. The Democratic Senate Majority PAC hit back Thursday, announcing $1 million worth of ads painting Toomey as a friend of the National Rifle Association.

CLEVELAND - Gov. Christie continued to play the role of campaign-trail prosecutor Wednesday, as he contended that FBI Director James Comey "blew it" in his handling of the Hillary Clinton email investigation. The governor, who revved up the Republican National Convention crowd the night before with a speech blasting Clinton, also stayed the course as a top advocate for GOP nominee Donald Trump, defending the political newcomer's ability to handle foreign policy. Speaking at a national-security event in Cleveland, Christie said he wasn't accusing Comey - whose integrity he praised Wednesday as has in the past - of being "in the tank for the Clintons.

ISSUE | TERRORISM IN FRANCE Rooted in cultural bias While there is no way to accept the horror and barbarism of the Bastille Day assault in Nice, France, there is more than sufficient evidence to help us understand the conditions that nurture violence ("Attack kills 80 in France," Friday). Migration from North Africa to France was a key component of post-World War II France. The government sought workers for factories across the country. Migrant men were kept in segregated housing built by companies that enjoyed the patronage of Gaullist politicians.

Republicans summoned FBI Director James Comey to Capitol Hill on Thursday to question him about his determination that Hillary Clinton did not break the law with her use of a private email server. They termed it an "emergency" hearing, and their questions were correspondingly urgent. "Have you seen the Broadway production Hamilton ?" Rep. John Mica of Florida, the most senior Republican on the House Oversight Committee, asked Comey. The witness looked puzzled at the line of questioning: Was Mica going to challenge him to a duel?
