WASHINGTON (AP) — President Barack Obama's health care law is snarled in another big legal battle, with two federal appeals courts issuing contradictory rulings on a key financing issue within hours of each other Tuesday.
Dutch experts on Tuesday prepared to fly out bodies recovered from downed Malaysian flight MH17, as Europe moved to punish Russia for fanning the rebellion in eastern Ukraine that it believes led to the crash. The remains of victims were taken by train to the government-held Ukrainian city of Kharkiv five days after the jet was brought down, after rebels controlling the crash site finally released them and the plane's black boxes under intense international pressure. Dutch experts said they were only sure 200 bodies had been delivered so far -- less than what the pro-Russian rebels had promised. International monitors also said some remains remain left rotting under the sweltering summer heat in the vast crash site in rebel-held east Ukraine.
