SHARM EL-SHEIKH, Egypt (AP) — A two-day Arab summit ended Sunday with a vow to defeat Iranian-backed Shiite rebels in Yemen and the formal unveiling of plans to form a joint Arab intervention force, setting the stage for a potentially dangerous clash between U.S.-allied Arab states and Tehran over influence in the region.
New York police recovered a body Sunday from the rubble of a Manhattan site rocked by a massive gas explosion. Two people had been reported missing from a sushi restaurant ravaged by Thursday's blast, which blew the front off a commercial and residential property on Second Avenue in East Village and led to a multi-building fire. Police had previously said witness statements put both missing people in the sushi restaurant at the time of the explosion. New York's fire commissioner said it would take a week to clear the debris created by the incident, which leveled three properties and badly damaged a fourth.
