A police officer prevents attendees from leaving the Muhammad Art Exhibit and Contest after it was reported that shots were fired outside the venueBy Mike Stone and Lisa Maria Garza GARLAND, Texas (Reuters) - Texas police shot dead two gunmen who opened fire on Sunday outside an exhibit of caricatures of the Prophet Mohammad that was organized by an anti-Islamic group and billed as a free-speech event. The shooting in a Dallas suburb was an echo of past attacks or threats in other Western countries against art depicting the Prophet Mohammad. In January, gunmen killed 12 people in the Paris offices of French satirical magazine Charlie Hebdo in revenge for its cartoons. Sunday's attack took place shortly before 7 p.m. in a parking lot of the Curtis Culwell Center, an indoor arena in the suburb of Garland, northeast of Dallas.

In this photo taken April 9, 2015, a mature sea star clings to a concrete wall surrounded by barnacles on Washington’s Hood Canal near Poulsbo, Wash. Researchers say that there’s evidence that juvenile sea stars, while not entirely immune, may be less susceptible to a virus fingered as the likely culprit of the sea star wasting disease, a sickness that has devastated about 20 species of sea stars from Alaska to Baja California since it was first reported off the Washington coast in June 2013. (AP Photo/Elaine Thompson)LOPEZ PASS, Wash. (AP) — Emerging from a recent dive 40 feet below the surface of Puget Sound, biologist Ben Miner wasn't surprised by what he found: The troubling disease that wiped out millions of sea stars up and down the West Coast had not spared this site along the rocky cliffs of Lopez Island.
