US actor Tracy Morgan was released from a medical rehabilitation center Saturday after suffering multiple injuries last month, and is suing Walmart, whose truck rear-ended his stretch limousine. The crash on a New Jersey highway killed Morgan's friend and fellow comic James McNair and injured three other passengers in the vehicle. Morgan, 45, was critically injured in the crash, suffering broken ribs, a broken nose and a broken leg. "Tracy has been released from the rehabilitation center and will continue his recovery efforts at home with an aggressive outpatient program," Morgan's publicist Lewis Kay said in a statement.
By Lesley Wroughton and Maria Golovnina KABUL (Reuters) - U.S. State Secretary John Kerry convinced Afghanistan's feuding presidential candidates on Saturday to agree to a total recount of last month's presidential election, which has threatened to split the country along ethnic lines. After two days of intense talks between Kerry, Abdullah Abdullah and Ashraf Ghani, all parties agreed that the best way out of the acrimonious and protracted deadlock was to delay the inauguration and recount all the ballots from scratch. Preliminary results from the run-off vote on June 14 put Ghani, a former World Bank official, well ahead but Abdullah rejected the result, claiming widespread fraud and calling the outcome a "coup" against the Afghan people. "Every single ballot that was cast will be audited... This is the strongest possible signal by both candidates of the desire to restore legitimacy to the process." The recount was scheduled to begin within 24 hours, but was likely to take several weeks, meaning that a presidential inauguration scheduled for Aug. 2 will have to be postponed.
