Two Million More Victims Of War


The wars in Iraq and Afghanistan have been hard not only on U.S. troops sent to fight them but on the young children they have left behind, U.S. researchers said on Monday.

Children aged 3 to 5 with a parent deployed to one of the two war zones exhibit more behavioral problems such as aggressiveness than similar children in military families without a parent deployed, according to the study.

More than 2 million U.S. children have had parents deployed to fight in Iraq since 2003 or in Afghanistan since 2001.

AIG Update



 A financial manipulation scheme cost American International Group Inc investors at least $544 million, a judge has estimated, a finding that could mean the five former executives convicted in the fraud will face lengthy prison terms when sentenced.

The case is unrelated to AIG's mortgage-related losses that led to a near collapse of the company in September and an $85 billion emergency line of credit from the U.S. Federal Reserve.

Cuban-American artist Jorge Rodriguez Gerada and an army of helpers have etched a truly giant image of Barack Obama's face into the sand at a beach in Barcelona, Spain, battling the rain to finish the colossus just ahead of election day. The enormous face is 140 yards long by 80 yards wide. Rodriguez Gerada hopes to be seen from outer space and photographed on Google Earth. The face was created using 500 metric tons of sand, gravel and white, brown and black pebbles, at a cost of more than euro10,000 (US$13,000).
