    (NEW YORK) — David Bar Katz, a friend of Philip Seymour Hoffman who found the actor’s body in his New York City apartment on Sunday, is suing The National Enquirer over what he claims is a fabricated story about his connection to Hoffman.

    Fire Breaks Out at Nuclear Waste Repository in New Mexico

    (CARSLBAD, N.M.) — A fire at a nuclear waste repository in New Mexico Wednesday prompted evacuations and raised fears that radioactive waste could have been impacted.
