FILE - In this Friday, Nov. 14, 2014 file photo, a Syrian Kurd holds his hand on to the barbed wire fence that marks the Turkey-Syria border on the outskirts of Kobani, seen from the Turkish side of the border outside the village of Yumurtalik. Kobani, also known as Ayn Arab, and its surrounding areas, has been under assault by extremists of the Islamic State group since mid-September and is being defended by Kurdish fighters. More than two months into its assault on Kobani, the Islamic State group still pours fighters and resources into trying to take the besieged Kurdish town, but the drive has been blunted. Aided by 270 U.S. airstrikes, the town’s determined Kurdish defenders appear to be gaining momentum, a potentially bruising reversal for the militants who only few weeks ago seemed unstoppable in their march to victory.

This photo provided by the Ohio Department of Rehabilitation and Corrections shows Ricky Jackson. The Cuyahoga County prosecutor’s office has filed a motion dismissing aggravated murder cases against three men falsely accused of killing a businessman outside a corner store in Cleveland in 1975. Fifty-seven-year-old Jackson, 60-year-old Wiley Bridgeman and his brother, 57-year-old Ronnie Bridgeman, were sentenced to death during separate trials in 1975 for the slaying of Herman Franks. Their convictions were based solely on the testimony of a 13-year-old boy who in 2013 recanted and said he was coerced and threatened by Cleveland police detectives.
