The missing Malaysian plane is a made-for-TV mystery where the public’s hunger for the story seems inversely proportional to the amount of solid leads for solving the case. The story led ABC’s Good Morning America again on Tuesday (local time), when Bob Woodruff reported from a Malaysian fishing village, interviewing a man who said he saw a jet flying low over the water around the time Malaysian Airlines flight MH370 went missing March 8 with 239 people aboard.

If you’re tired of music festivals that require you to endure muddy mosh pits, stifling tents and rapaciously priced bottles of water, consider an escape to the plunging cliffs, turquoise waters and weathered citadels of Corsica.

The new arrivals at the drug rehab center in Chichevo, a tiny village two hours’ drive east of Moscow, are usually given two weeks without chores to recover from the nausea, pain and sleeplessness of withdrawal.

The angry, aggressive crowd formed within minutes of my arrival. Dozens of Muslim men, all in ankle-length galabias, came together in the middle of the dusty dirt path leading to the Church of the Two Martyrs in this poor Christian and Muslim village some 130 miles south of Cairo.
As the residents of Moneygall ready themselves to play host to Barack Obama on May 23, many hope the visit will bring the Irish village exactly what the President’s great-great-great-grandfather sought when he left there 150 years ago: prosperity. It takes less than a minute to drive through Obama’s ancestral hometown, a sleepy and typical rural village whose main attractions are a single pub, a corner shop, a post office and a football field.
South Lebanon Sunday witnessed its deadliest day since the month-long Israel-Hizballah 2006 war when 10 Palestinian demonstrators were reported shot dead and another 112 wounded as Israeli troops opened fire on protests along the border fence.
