WASHINGTON (AP) — In a story July 26 about refugee programs for Central Americans being expanded by the Obama administration, The Associated Press reported erroneously that that expansion of a program to allow children to reunite with parents in the United States legally would also now allow some of their unmarried siblings to move to the U.S. The siblings are not required to be unmarried.
Australia took command Wednesday of a low-scoring Test against Sri Lanka, building up an 86-run first innings lead before dismissing opener Kulsan Perera with the last ball of a rain-affected day in Pallekele. Despite the heroics of Lakshan Sandakan, who took four wickets on debut, the hosts were staring down the barrel at stumps on the second day of the opening Test after rain again forced an early end to proceedings. Perera fell for just four when he was lbw to paceman Mitchell Starc, leaving Sri Lanka wobbling on six for one -- still 80 runs short of having to make the visitors bat again.
