FILE - In this Friday, May 10, 2002 file photo Alexander Litvinenko, former KGB spy and author of the book "Blowing Up Russia: Terror From Within", is photographed at his home in London. The British government Tuesday, July 22, 2014 announced plans for a wide-ranging public inquiry into the 2006 death of poisoned ex-Russian spy Litvinenko. The decision, which comes at a time of rising tensions with Russia, means investigators can look into whether the Russian state played a role in Litvinenko's demise.

'Detroit' is seen on the top of an iron man-hole cover on a street in DetroitDetroit will head into the critical phase of its historic bankruptcy case next month with the backing of an overwhelming majority of its active and retired workers and with opposition from a small, hard-core group of hold-out creditors. It puts U.S. Judge Steven Rhodes in a position to impose the plan to adjust $18 billion in debt on objecting creditors or for the city to settle with those creditors. "The judge can cram down the dissenters upon a showing that the plan does not discriminate unfairly against them, and is fair and equitable to them," Laura Bartell, a law professor at Wayne State University in Detroit, said on Tuesday. City workers and retirees would see smaller pension reductions under the so-called grand bargain, which taps $466 million pledged by philanthropic foundations and the Detroit Institute of Arts over 20 years and $195 million from the state of Michigan to ease pension cuts and save art work from being sold to pay city creditors.
