The Canadian flag flies at half-mast on the Peace Tower on Parliament Hill in OttawaBy Richard Valdmanis OTTAWA (Reuters) - Canadians returned to the reopened grounds of their parliament building on Saturday, three days after a homegrown radical rushed in armed with a rifle after killing a soldier in the second domestic attack in a week on the country's military. The grounds of the hilltop gothic building, whose clock tower is a centerpiece of Ottawa's skyline, attracted scores of visitors, many still stunned by Wednesday's attack, which took place as Prime Minister Stephen Harper was meeting with lawmakers. ...

A Lebanese soldier takes cover during clashes with Islamist gunmen in Tripoli's historic centre -- which is on the shortlist for possible nomination as a UNESCO world heritage siteLebanese troops fought a fierce and deadly battle Saturday with Islamist gunmen in the historic market of second city Tripoli, in clashes that devastated parts of the popular tourist site. It was the first time since the civil war in neighbouring Syria erupted in 2011 that violence had spread to the market in the northern city's historical centre, which is on the shortlist for selection as a UNESCO world heritage site. A security official said a civilian caught in the crossfire and a gunman were killed, while nine soldiers, eight civilians and six militants were wounded. The fighting broke out late Friday after gunmen attacked an army patrol in the Khan al-Askar area, near the heart of the coastal city, wounding four soldiers, a security official said.

FILE - In this July 17, 2014 file photo, Annette Taddeo-Goldstein, right, talks to reporters during a news conference as former Gov. Charlie Crist listens in Miami. Crist picked former congressional candidate and Miami-Dade County Democratic Party chairwoman Annette Taddeo-Goldstein as his running mate. After years of running few Latinos for statewide posts, Democrats are building a bench that better reflects the support they have in the Hispanic community: more than twice as many Hispanics identify as Democrats than Republicans nationally, according to polls. This year they are showcasing this bench in key states that not only have large Hispanic electorates but enough electoral votes to swing presidential elections. The shift is crucial for a party that often fails to get its Hispanic supporters to the polls. (AP Photo/Alan Diaz)APOPKA, Fla. (AP) — The Democratic lieutenant governor candidates from Florida, Texas and Nevada all have colorful biographies: a Colombian-born business executive; a pharmacist-turned-veteran lawmaker; and a juvenile delinquent-turned-lawyer.
