FILE - In this Feb. 13, 2006, file photo, Anders Kompass, the U.N. High Commission for Human Rights representative in Guatemala, speaks with members of the media during a news conference in Guatemala City. The U.N.’s poor handling of child sex abuse claims against French soldiers has human rights staffers in the field fearing for their jobs as they struggle with how to respond to highly sensitive allegations in the future, according to a letter to the world body’s human rights chief obtained by The Associated Press. The letter dated May 8 from U.N. human rights field staffers is an angry response to last month’s suspension of colleague Kompass for telling French authorities, a decision that the U.N. Dispute Tribunal reversed this month. (AP Photo/Moises Castillo, File)UNITED NATIONS (AP) — The boys said they approached the French soldiers because they were hungry. Some were so young that they didn't quite understand the acts the soldiers demanded in return. One boy, 8 or 9 years old, said he did it several times to the same soldier, "until one day an older kid saw him and told him what he was doing was bad."

FILE - In this Wednesday, May 27, 2015 file photo, Wayne Burgarello listens as a witness takes the stand at the Washoe County District Court, in Reno, Nev. A Nevada prosecutor on Friday, May 29, urged jurors to convict Burgarello of first-degree murder, saying he was seeking out a deadly confrontation when he shot two unarmed trespassers in a vacant duplex he owns. Burgarello maintains he was acting in self-defense when he killed Cody Devine and seriously wounded Janai Wilson last year. A jury in Reno is expected to begin deliberations Friday afternoon. (Andy Barron/The Reno Gazette-Journal via AP, Pool,File)RENO, Nev. (AP) — A Nevada man who was accused of murder after confronting two unarmed trespassers with a deadly barrage of gunfire at a vacant duplex he owns was found not guilty Friday of all charges in the latest case to test the boundaries of stand-your-ground self-defense laws.
