GANDHINAGAR, India (AP) -- Gunmen stormed a popular Hindu temple and opened fire, killing 23 worshippers and wounding 40 on Tuesday in a western Indian state where hundreds were killed in religious rioting this year, authorities said.
No one immediately claimed responsibility for the attack.
Fires rage near LA
LA VERNE, Calif. (AP) -- Seventy homes in an upscale suburb east of Los Angeles were evacuated as an 8,000-acre wildfire raged out of control in the rugged terrain of the Angeles National Forest. The fire has destroyed 44 structures near La Verne, but it was not immediately known how many of them were homes, U.S. Forest Service fire dispatcher Tony Heinan said early Tuesday. The fire was about 12 percent contained.
Flu shots urged for kids
WASHINGTON (AP) -- Flu-shot season begins next week, and this year marks the first time parents are being urged to get babies and toddlers vaccinated because influenza sends its tiniest patients to the hospital as often as it does the elderly.
But there's a catch: Unlike the one yearly shot most people need, the first-ever inoculation for young children requires two doses a month apart. So experts are urging parents not to delay that pediatrician visit, to be sure their kids get both shots in time.
There's plenty of flu vaccine this year.
