File photo of Shkreli, former CEO of Turing Pharmaceuticals LLC, appearing before a hearing in WashingtonFormer drug executive Martin Shkreli, who last year became a lightning rod for outrage over soaring prescription drug prices, may face additional U.S. charges of securities fraud, a federal prosecutor said on Tuesday. More charges related to Shkreli's involvement with biopharmaceutical company Retrophin Inc could be filed within a month, Assistant U.S. Attorney Winston Paes said at a hearing in federal court in Brooklyn, New York. Shkreli, 33, sparked outrage among patients, medical societies and U.S. lawmakers after another company he ran, Turing Pharmaceuticals, raised the price of the drug Daraprim by more than 5,000 percent to $750 a pill.

The much-acclaimed production by creator-star Lin-Manuel Miranda -- who recently won the Pulitzer Prize for drama for the work -- received nods across the board for the awards honoring Broadway's best, to be handed out in June. In the best actor and featured actor categories, the show's stars -- including Miranda as Alexander Hamilton -- will compete against each other for top honors.

The Al-Quds hospital in Aleppo was destroyed by Syrian regime airstrikes on April 28, 2016The UN Security Council on Tuesday demanded that hospitals and clinics be protected in war zones, in a resolution that draws attention to the rise in attacks on medical workers in conflicts worldwide. Less than a week after air strikes on a hospital in the Syrian battleground city of Aleppo killed at least 30 people, the council unanimously adopted the measure that strongly condemned the targeting of health facilities and recalled that such attacks are war crimes. French Ambassador Francois Delattre said it was a "major resolution" that sent a strong warning that there can be "no impunity" for the perpetrators of attacks on medical facilities.
