New laws treat teen prostitutes as abuse victims
LOS ANGELES: By the time she was 8, Amanda had been sexually abused by her father's friend for four years. At 12, she was peddling crack. At 14, she was selling sex on the sidewalk.
Her pimp beat her weekly to keep her working, stitching up her wounds himself to avoid questions at a hospital. Her average earnings of $600 for a 13-hour day of turning tricks bought him a car.

G20 Protests: third incident probed
A third incident connected to the G20 protests in London has been referred to the Independent Police Complaints Commission, Scotland Yard has revealed. The IPCC is already investigating events leading up the death of newspaper seller Ian Tomlinson on April 1 and an allegation of assault on Nicola Fisher on April 2.
A Scotland Yard spokeswoman said: "We can confirm that a third complaint has been referred to the IPCC." She said it related to an incident on April 1. Sky News understands it involves a 23-year-old man from London who claims he was hit on the head by a police officer. The IPCC says it has received a total of 90 complaints about the use of force during the protests.

Bank of England ex governor George dies aged 70
Lord Eddie George, who was governor of the Bank of England between 1993 and 2003, died Saturday of cancer aged 70, the bank said.
He was also in charge when Brown transferred responsibility for banking regulation away from the Bank of England to an all-embracing financial regulator that year.
That body, later renamed the Financial Services Authority (FSA), has faced criticism since the world economic crisis struck last year for taking a light touch approach to regulating City of London financial firms.

Obama extends hands to Chavez, Ortega at summit
PORT-OF-SPAIN, Trinidad: President Barack Obama offered a spirit of cooperation to America's hemispheric neighbors at a summit Saturday, listening to complaints about past U.S. meddling and even reaching out to Venezuela's leftist leader.
While he worked to ease friction between the U.S. and their countries, Obama cautioned leaders at the Summit of the Americas to resist a temptation to blame all their problems on their behemoth neighbor to the north.

Shoot first: Columbine transformed police tactics
Golden, Colorado: The first officers on the scene had never trained for what they found at Columbine High School: No hostages. No demands. Just killing.
In the hours that followed, the nation watched in horror as the standard police procedure for dealing with shooting rampages in the U.S. proved tragically, heartbreakingly flawed on April 20, 1999.
