Students hunting with BB guns cause lockdown at Maryland university

Stevenson UniversityTwo students hunting with BB rifles in a wooded area near Maryland's Stevenson University caused the school to be put on lockdown on Monday after reports of a gunman on campus, the university's president said. Students and staff at the school, in Owings Mills outside of Baltimore, were told to shelter in place at about 2:30 p.m. local time after police and school security received calls that a gunman was spotted at the school. "It appears that the incident was caused by two students who had the poor judgment of hunting in the woods," university President Kevin Manning said in a statement. The lockdown ended at 6:45 p.m., but campus activities were canceled for the evening, according to Manning.

Kerry returns to Middle East for flailing peace talks

U.S. Secretary of State John Kerry waves before his flight leaving ParisBy Lesley Wroughton and Jeffrey Heller JERUSALEM (Reuters) - U.S. Secretary of State John Kerry rushed back to the Middle East on Monday to try to salvage stalled peace talks, possibly by releasing an Israeli spy jailed in the United States to push Israel to free Palestinian prisoners. Requesting anonymity, a U.S. official said the release of Jonathan Pollard, who is serving a life sentence in the United States for spying for Israel, was "on the table" as a possible element in a Middle East peace deal as an incentive to Israel. Kerry, who flew to Israel from Paris, held two-hour talks in Jerusalem with Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu.
