Students from Marysville-Pilchuck High School hold candles during a vigil at the Grove Church on October 24, 2014 in Marysville, WashingtonTwo teenage US girls were fighting for their lives Saturday after they were both shot in the head by a schoolmate during a deadly attack at a Washington state high school a day earlier. Joanne Roberts, a doctor at Providence Regional Medical Center in the city of Everett, 30 miles (50 kilometers) north of Seattle, said both girls had undergone surgery for head wounds. The shooting unfolded Friday morning when 14-year-old Jaylen Fryberg, a popular first-year student at the Marysville-Pilchuck High School, opened fire in the school cafeteria, classmates and officials said. Both boys were being treated at Harborview Medical Center.

FILE - In this Tuesday, Sept. 2, 2014 file photo, Pakistan's fiery cleric Tahir-ul-Qadri, second left, and cricketer-turned-politician Imran Khan, right, jointly raise their hands for their supporters during a protest near Prime Minister's home in Islamabad, Pakistan. It had all the elements of a classic coup: thousands descending on the capital, clashing with police outside parliament and commandeering state TV to demand the ouster of a civilian leader who had locked horns with the military in a country with a long history of turmoil and dictatorship. But when the tear gas cleared in Islamabad in August, Pakistan’s Prime Minister Nawaz Sharif remained in office with the support of the entire parliament, the troops were still in their barracks, and the protesters had dwindled to a few thousand, their “revolution” confined to a festive, shrinking tent camp. (AP Photo/Anjum Naveed, File)ISLAMABAD (AP) — It had all the elements of a classic coup: thousands descending on the capital, clashing with police outside parliament and commandeering state TV to demand the ouster of a civilian leader who had locked horns with the military in a country with a long history of turmoil and dictatorship.
