Israeli soldiers carry an injured comrade after an anti-tank missile hit an army vehicle in an occupied area on the border with Lebanon, on January 28, 2015A Hezbollah missile attack killed two Israeli soldiers on Wednesday and Israel responded with air and ground strikes on southern Lebanon, where a UN peacekeeper was killed. Amid concerns of further escalation, Israeli officials warned they may take more steps after longtime enemy Hezbollah claimed the attack on a military convoy in the Israeli-occupied Shebaa Farms area. The Israeli army said in a statement that it had responded with "combined aerial and ground strikes" on Hezbollah in southern Lebanon after the attack -- an apparent retaliation for a recent Israeli strike on the Golan Heights that killed senior Hezbollah members.

Indonesian rescue personnel load coffins bearing bodies recovered from the underwater wreckage of ill-fated AirAsia flight QZ8501 on a military plane in Pangkalan Bun on January 23, 2015Indonesia's search and rescue agency said Wednesday that 92 victims still missing after an AirAsia plane crash could have been swept away or be lost on the seabed after no more bodies were found in the jet's fuselage. "They could be on the seabed, or have been swept away by waves and currents," S.B. Supriyadi, a search and rescue agency official who has been coordinating the hunt, told AFP. The military, which has provided the bulk of personnel and equipment for the operation, withdrew from the search Tuesday due to the failure to find more victims, and after several failed attempts to lift the damaged fuselage. The civilian search and rescue agency has said it will push on with the hunt for at least a week, with three aircraft, several ships, and divers.

Photo obtained January 26, 2014, from US Secret Service shows a smal drone that crash landed at the White House in Washington, DCA Chinese drone maker which created the small quadcopter that recently crashed on White House grounds said Wednesday it is updating its drones to prohibit flight over the US capital. The Shenzhen-based company DJI announced a software update for its "Phantom" series drone that will stop flight over all of the Washington area, spokesman Michael Perry said in an email. GPS signals will determine the location of the drone and stop it from flying in the restricted areas. The restricted use is based off of the Federal Aviation Administration's unmanned-flight guidelines for the area, the company said.

FILE In this April 6, 2012, photo, former Navy SEAL and author of the book “American Sniper” poses in Midlothian, Texas. Former Navy SEAL and Minnesota Gov. Jesse Ventura, who won $1.8 million in a defamation lawsuit last year against the estate of the late Chris Kyle, says he won’t see the film partly because Kyle is no hero to him. He tells The Associated Press a hero must be honorable, and there’ no honor in lying. Lyle claimed in his “American Sniper” book that he punched out a man, whom he later identified as Ventura, at a California bar in 2006 for allegedly saying the SEALs "deserve to lose a few" in Iraq. Ventura said it never happened. (AP Photo/The Fort Worth Star-Telegram, Paul Moseley, File)MINNEAPOLIS (AP) — "American Sniper" is tops at the box office but don't expect to see former Minnesota Gov. Jesse Ventura lining up at a theater for it.
