In this picture taken on early Sunday April 20, 2014, Saleh Zawaraa, 28, center, arrives on horseback after being severely injured by a tank shell as he tried to bring bread into the Syrian village of Beit Jinn, near the Israeli-occupied Golan Heights. He and other Syrians refugees came over 2,814-meter (9,232-foot) Mount Hermon (Jabal el-Sheikh), into the town of Chebaa in southeast Lebanon. The village of Beit Jinn has been under siege by Syrian troops for months, and no food and medicine has been allowed to reach thousands of trapped civilians inside.(AP Photo/Hussein Malla)MOUNT HERMON, Lebanon (AP) — As the late-day sun slipped behind the mountains in front of them, a ragtag group of around a dozen Syrians desperate to flee their country's bloody civil war set off on their treacherous nighttime trek across the rugged frontier into neighboring Lebanon.

In this April 16, 2014 image from video Roger Pontz wears special glasses that house a small video camera and transmitter at the University of Michigan Kellogg Eye Center on April 16, 2014, in Ann Arbor, Mich. The glasses are part of a system developed by a California company that wirelessly transmits images from the camera, converted into a series of electrical pulses, to an array of electrodes on the surface of Pontz' retna. The pulses stimulate the retina’s remaining healthy cells, causing them to relay the data to the optic nerve. The visual information then moves to the brain, where it is translated into patterns of light that can take the shape of an object’s outline, allowing the patient to regain some visual function. (AP Photo, Mike Householder)ANN ARBOR, Mich. (AP) — A degenerative eye disease slowly robbed Roger Pontz of his vision.
