PLATTSBURGH, N.Y. (AP) — Two convicted killers who staged a complicated prison break together and then spent more than two weeks roaming in thick New York woods finally split up when one man decided he'd make better time without the other escapee.
Two people were feared dead Tuesday after an apparent suicide attempt on board a moving shinkansen bullet train in Japan, a spokesman for the operator told AFP. The train -- a super-fast Nozomi bullet train -- was travelling from Tokyo towards Osaka when the fire broke out near Odawara, southwest of Tokyo. "We received information indicating that a fire broke out near a toilet and two people were in cardiopulmonary arrest," a spokesman for Odawara Fire Department said.
