CAIRO (AP) — Hundreds of Egyptian journalists rallied in Cairo on Wednesday in an escalating standoff with police, threatening a possible strike by media workers if demands including the dismissal of the interior minister are not met.
The U.S. Transportation Department confirmed on Wednesday that automakers will recall another 35 million to 40 million U.S. air bag inflators installed by Takata Corp by 2019. Previously, 14 automakers had recalled 24 million vehicles with 28.8 million inflators linked to at least 11 deaths and more than 100 injuries. The National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA) said the decision "follows the agency’s confirmation of the root cause behind the inflators’ propensity to rupture." Takata must file new defect reports covering 35-40 million additional inflators by May 16 that will lead to automaker recalls.
