U.S. drone strike kills five militants, officials say

Pakistani intelligence officials say a U.S. drone strike has killed five militants in northwest Pakistan.

Two intelligence officials said at least seven missiles were fired from U.S. drones Saturday at a vehicle and a house in the village of Degan in the Pakistani tribal region of North Waziristan near the Afghan border.

The officials spoke on condition of anonymity because they are not authorized to talk to the media.

They said the area is dominated by anti-American militant commander Hafiz Gul Bahadur. They did not know whether the killed men belong to his group.

The CIA-run drone program is controversial in Pakistan where many call it an infringement on the nation’s sovereignty. The U.S. maintains it is necessary tool to combat militants.

Ryan says he misstated marathon time by hour

Republican Paul Ryan now says he didn’t run a marathon in less than three hours, as he claimed in a nationally broadcast interview.

The vice-presidential hopeful acknowledged Saturday he had misstated his marathon time by more than an hour. He released a statement correcting the record after Runner’s World magazine found evidence he had completed one marathon, in 1990, and finished in just over four hours.

Ryan told radio host Hugh Hewitt last month he had run a “two hour and fifty-something” marathon. That’s a pace of less than 7 minutes per mile for the 26.2 mile course — extremely fast for recreational runners.

Ryan said he should have rounded his marathon time to four hours, not three.

Produce company recalls items containing mangoes

A New Jersey produce company recalled a number of products distributed in the Northeast that contained fresh-cut mangoes Saturday because of potential salmonella contamination.

The products in question have an expiration date of Aug. 28, but the company, F&S Produce Co. Inc., working with the Food and Drug Administration, issued the voluntary recall regardless.

No illnesses have been reporting in relation to products from F&S Produce, of Rosenhayn, N.J. Federal health officials are investigating 103 known cases of salmonella infection not related to the recall Saturday.

The measure follows a recall by Splendid Products of five lots of mangoes imported from Mexico. The mangoes carry the Daniella brand sticker.

Football fan, 20, had been drinking before fatal fall, police say

A 20-year-old fan from Tennessee was drinking alcohol before he fell to his death in the Georgia Dome and struck another man, who was injured, authorities said Saturday.

Isaac Grubb of Lenoir City, Tenn., was killed Friday when he somehow fell over a 33-inch railing and plummeted to the lower level of the downtown Atlanta stadium during the Tennessee-North Carolina State football game. Grubb had been cheering Tennessee’s second touchdown when the accident happened around 8:23 p.m., said Frank Poe, executive director of the Georgia World Congress Center Authority, which operates the stadium.

Grubb, who was too young to legally buy alcohol, started drinking around 5 p.m., more than three hours before the accident, said Lt. Chad Hurston of the authority’s police department.

Witnesses told police Grubb did not buy alcohol inside the stadium.
