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.

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?

By George Heyrich When it comes to a heart attack, minutes matter most. With today's modern medicine, hospitals can stop a heart attack in its tracks. However, if you wait too long to seek care, your risk of permanent heart damage is higher, which could lead to heart failure or death. According to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, roughly 735,000 Americans experience a heart attack every year. The clock starts at the onset of the first heart-attack symptom. This is where rapid intervention saves lives.

WHEN IN DOUBT, try fear-mongering. That's the tactic used recently by Sen. Pat Toomey, who introduced a bill to deny federal housing and community-development money to any municipality that declared itself a sanctuary city. These cities - Philadelphia among them - opted out of cooperating with the federal government's program of aggressively deporting illegal/undocumented immigrants. Toomey is following the lead of Donald Trump, the Republican Party's presidential candidate, whose hysterical anti-immigrant stance has energized the conservative base.

Barbie Zelizer is the Raymond Williams professor of communication and director of the Scholars Program in Culture and Communication at the Annenberg School for Communication at the University of Pennsylvania Which places get reported on by journalists has always been a problem in the news. But Tuesday's attack at Istanbul's Ataturk Airport is a poignant reminder of how much U.S. journalism's uneven regard for places in the news undermines the public capacity to understand and respond to distant violence.

DEAR ABBY: Please remind your readers that it's important to keep their dogs on a leash for their pets' protection as well as the protection of those around them. In my community, leash laws are rarely enforced, and it's common to see dogs running loose in city parks. The result is an increase in dogfights and unwelcome contact with people. Coyote attacks are also common here in the West, and small dogs are often the victims. If other dog owners kept their dogs leashed, I wouldn't have to worry about them bounding up to mine and about the ensuing dogfight that follows when my dogs interpret that behavior as a threat.
