A suburban burglar who tried to escape to L.A. aboard a motor coach Sunday night was bus-ted by Upper Darby and Philadelphia police at the Greyhound terminal in Center City thanks to an observant social-media user, police said. Gartor Kiki Brown, 27, allegedly tried to bolt on a bus to the West Coast once he learned that police were hot on his trailways, but cops put the brakes on his magical mystery tour before it went any farther and instead gave him a one-way ride to prison. According to Upper Darby police Superintendent Michael Chitwood, Brown, who was living in an acquaintance's basement on Aberdeen Road near Millbank in Upper Darby, decided to burglarize the home of the elderly couple who lived next door when they went to the store on Friday afternoon.

Look across the street from the post office parking lot on the 100 block of Fifth Street, and you'll see a sight that is all too common here: With the exception of one isolated storefront business, all the buildings in the block are empty. One of those buildings is a two-story brick bus station that was left vacant when Greyhound and Trailways stopped providing service here more than a decade ago, its front door chained and padlocked and its interior showing age and neglect. But unlock the door and walk into the former bus station with Chester residents Karolyn Funches and Yvonne Carrington, and you might be able to catch a glimpse of a building transformed, as they describe the changes that will take place there over the next few months.

The deadly attacks on civilians that have wracked this country took on a new and grisly variation yesterday: A powerful explosion ripped through a crowded Baghdad bus station. As police responded, a second explosion went off. Then, a third bomb devastated the nearby hospital where the wounded had been rushed for treatment. The triple-bombing toll reported by the Ministry of Interior and hospital officials: up to 43 killed and 88 injured, including civilians, medical workers and police, making it the deadliest attack in weeks in the violence-ridden country.

Consider it a tale of two transportation modes. Go to JFK Boulevard in University City and you'll see travelers huddled on the sidewalk like refugees, in the scorching sun of summer and the chilling wind of winter, while they wait for buses to New York or Washington. Then walk across the street to the soaring waiting room of 30th Street Station , where Amtrak riders heading to the same destinations relax in climate-controlled comfort, sipping lattes until their trains are called.

Ram Karmi, 82, a leading Israeli architect whose work is both celebrated and controversial, has died. Mr. Karmi won the Israel Prize, the country's highest honor, in 2002 for his architecture. With sister Ada Karmi-Melamed, he designed Israel's Supreme Court, and with a New York firm, he co-designed the newest terminal at the Ben Gurion International Airport. Both buildings were lauded but Mr. Karmi's other designs provoked criticism, including his Tel Aviv central bus station, a concrete labyrinth of staircases and escalators.

Indian troops encircled Jaffna and reinforcements poured in yesterday for an assault on Tamil rebels that one official predicted would be their "last- ditch, most ferocious stand" in the city's narrow, high-walled alleys. A senior Sri Lankan official said Indian troops had nearly penetrated two defense perimeters in efforts to link up with a besieged Sri Lankan garrison battling its way out of a Dutch-built fort inside Jaffna. The Liberation Tigers of Tamil Eelam (LTTE), which have occupied the city, issued a statement saying they were prepared to fight "to the last man. " The Tigers broke a 10-week-old cease-fire Oct. 6 after 12 of their fighters committed suicide in Sri Lankan custody.

Tears dripped from Sona Turner's face as she drove, but her lips stayed silent. It had been more than five months since an unknown killer had stuffed her 30-year-old daughter, Tara Alicea, into a suitcase and left it in the woods behind Egg Harbor Township's Harbor Square mall. Now, as Turner drove past the mall to drop off her boyfriend at a bus station, she felt like vomiting. On the way home to Clayton, Turner's granddaughter - Alicea's 8-year-old daughter, Nilza - moved to the front seat and asked to wear her grandmother's glasses.

Honking cars - you do like your horns, Philly. The street preacher yelling Scripture at 16th and Market. Panhandlers, whose constant pleas for help quickly become just more background noise.

DJENNE, Mali - Malian soldiers killed people accused of ties to radical Islamists at a bus stop around the time the French-led military intervention began, a witness told the Associated Press on Wednesday, detailing how the soldiers shot the victims and then threw their bodies into nearby wells. The account from the witness, who insisted on anonymity for fear of reprisals, came the same day that a French human-rights group accused Malian forces of dozens of "summary executions" and other abuses as they confronted Islamic extremists.
