DAUPHIN ISLAND, Ala. (AP) — As torrential rain and heavy winds continue to batter Alabama's coast, the U.S. Coast guard has suspended its search for four people missing after a deadly weekend storm killed two people and played havoc with a yearly race in Mobile Bay.
Australia urged Indonesia Monday to delay the execution of two men for drug offences until a corruption probe into their case is complete, after a report that judges sought tens of thousands of dollars in bribes. "Bali Nine" drug traffickers Myuran Sukumaran and Andrew Chan could face the firing squad within days, along with others from Brazil, Nigeria, the Philippines and an Indonesian prisoner. The Indonesian attorney-general's office said the executions would take place this week but did not confirm a date. Australian Foreign Minister Julie Bishop said the pair should not be shot while legal question marks remain over their cases.
