A man who spent 30 years on death row in Louisiana has walked free after a court threw out his murder conviction. Glenn Ford, 64, one of the longest-serving death row prisoners in the United States, was ordered to be released after new information cleared him of a 1983 murder. "My mind's going all kinds of directions, but it feels good," Ford told reporters outside the Louisiana State Penitentiary after his release Tuesday, according to CNN affiliate WAFB. Ford, an African-American who had been on death row since 1984 after his conviction by an all-white jury, said he has missed out on much of his life.
Istanbul (AFP) - Tens of thousands of people flocked Wednesday to the funeral of a teenage boy who died from injuries suffered during last year's anti-government protests that swept the country, an AFP photographer said.
