The fiancee of former New England Patriots player Aaron Hernandez is expected to take the stand for a second day of testimony in his murder trial and talk about a box she disposed of from their basement the day after a man who was dating her younger sister was killed.
NEW YORK (AP) — After two bodies were pulled from the rubble of a Manhattan apartment building collapse, authorities shifted their focus to what caused the massive explosion and fire and the possibility that someone may have improperly tapped a gas line serving one of the buildings.
The quake hit at a depth of 33 kilometres (20 miles), some 55 kilometres from the nearest city of Kokopo on New Britain island and 787 kilometres from the capital Port Moresby, the United States Geological Survey said. The Pacific Tsunami Warning Centre initially cautioned that "hazardous" tsunami waves could hit some coastal areas in PNG. Mathew Moihoi from Papua New Guinea's Geological Observatory said officials were still unable to make contact with more remote areas to determine whether there had been any sea level changes. Leonie Fakal, a housekeeper at the Seaview Beach Resort in Kokopo, said all the staff and their two guests ran outside when the quake hit.
