WASHINGTON (AP) — President Barack Obama sat down Monday with Palestinian President Mahmoud Abbas looking to ease the logjam to elusive Mideast peace talks, acknowledging that with a deadline fast approaching, the task ahead is "very hard, it's very challenging."
German prosecutors said Monday they won't appeal the tax fraud verdict against football legend Uli Hoeness, former boss of powerhouse Bayern Munich, freeing the way for his jail term to begin.

That is the jail where Adolf Hitler wrote "Mein Kampf" while serving a sentence for treason after the failed 1923 Beer Hall Putsch uprising in Munich.
