Syrian activists accuse Assad of new gas attacks

In this image taken from video obtained from the Shaam News Network, posted on April 18, 2014, an anti-Bashar Assad activist group, which has been authenticated based on its contents and other AP reporting, two women and a young girl are treated by a medic in Kfar Zeita, a rebel-held village in Hama province some 200 kilometers (125 miles) north of Damascus. Syrian opposition activists and other witnesses tell The Associated Press that Syrian government forces have attacked rebel-held areas with poisonous chlorine gas in recent months. They say the attacks left scores of men, women and children coughing, choking and gasping for breath.

A pro-Russian armed man stands guard near the state security service building in Slaviansk Slavyansk (Ukraine) (AFP) - Russia issued a sharp warning on Wednesday that it will strike back if its "legitimate interests" in Ukraine are attacked, raising the stakes in the Cold War-like duel with the United States over the former Soviet republic's future.

"If our interests, our legitimate interests, the interests of Russians have been attacked directly, like they were in South Ossetia for example, I do not see any other way but to respond in accordance with international law," he said, referring to Russia's armoured invasion of Georgia in 2008.

Katie Holmes, armed and dainty in vigilante satire "Miss Meadows"

Actress Katie Holmes arrives for the Donna Karan New York show during New York Fashion Week By Chris Michaud NEW YORK (Reuters) - Do not mess with Miss Meadows, the tap dancing elementary school teacher played by actress Katie Holmes in the new film of the same name that has premiered at the Tribeca Film Festival. She tends to punctuate meet-ups with a decidedly non-ironic "toodle-loo," and as described by one of the cops on her trail in "Miss Meadows" is a "pulp fiction Mary Poppins." But her mission to clear the streets of bad people is complicated when she falls for a local sheriff, played by James Badge Dale ("World War Z," and "Parkland.") "I'm a fan of strong women, and I like seeing them on screen," Holmes said of the vigilante heroine she portrays in the film. "She was delightful and believed in what she was doing and the integrity of her mind." The vigilante satire co-stars three-time Emmy-award winner Jean Smart ("Samantha Who?" and "Frasier") and Mary Kay Place, who also won an Emmy for comedy series "Mary Hartman, Mary Hartman." Written and directed by first-time filmmaker Karen Leigh Hopkins, the long gestation of "Miss Meadows" began with the 1993 abduction and murder of 12-year-old Polly Klaas, who was snatched from her bedroom in Petaluma, California, during a slumber party.
