A grand jury in Baltimore has indicted six officers in the death of Freddie Gray, the city’s top prosecutor said Thursday.

In a hasty early-evening news conference, State’s Attorney Marilyn Mosby reeled off the charges handed down by the grand jury against the officers: Caesar Goodson Jr., William Porter, Brian Rice, Edward Nero, Garrett Miller and Alicia White.

The grand jury’s charges differed slightly from those filed by Mosby on May 1, when she announced the results of her office’s independent investigation of Gray’s death. Some original charges, including false imprisonment and assault, were dropped in the cases of some of the officers, and new charges, including reckless endangerment, were added against all of them.

Employment in the global renewable energy industry has increased by over one million jobs during the past year, according to a new report released by the International Renewable Energy Agency (IRENA). 7.7 million people are now employed in renewable energy, an 18 percent increase on last year’s 6.5 million.

The renewable energy sector is continuing to grow rapidly across the world, especially in China where wind recently surpassed nuclear to become the country’s third largest source of electricity generation. Given the scope of its green energy ambitions, it comes as little surprise that China has the most renewable energy jobs of any country worldwide – approximately 3.4 million.

The Senate handed President Barack Obama a major win Thursday, voting to advance his trade agenda by ending debate on a bill that would grant him the power to fast-track massive new pacts through Congress.

A number of senators objected to the process, complaining that they were unable to get votes on amendments they deemed essential to making sure that looming, still-secret deals with 12 Pacific Rim nations and Europe live up to promises of helping U.S. workers.

But 62 of their colleagues disagreed, and voted to halt debate anyway, setting up passage of the fast-track bill by the end of the week.

More than 430 migrants stranded at sea were brought ashore to safety by Indonesian fishermen

A flotilla of Indonesian fishermen rescued more than 430 migrants who were stranded at sea and brought them ashore to safety Wednesday, the latest victims of a humanitarian crisis confronting Southeast Asia. Hoping to find a solution, Indonesia, Thailand and Malaysia held an emergency meeting to address the plight of the migrants who are fleeing persecution in Burma and poverty in Bangladesh.

The migrants were rescued early Wednesday by more than a dozen fishermen’s boats, said Herman Sulaiman, from East Aceh district’s Search and Rescue Agency.

Big Banks Plead Guilty To Market Manipulation, Will Pay $5.8 Billion

The age of multibillion-dollar bank fines with no admission of wrongdoing is over. The Justice Department announced Wednesday morning that five banks pleaded guilty to market manipulation, while also paying billions of dollars in fines.

Barclays, Citigroup, J.P. Morgan and the Royal Bank of Scotland admitted to illegally distorting foreign exchange markets. The banks formed what they called “The Cartel” and aimed to set a key currency marker, known as “the fix,” at mutually beneficial values.

The fix is set every day at 4 p.m. London time and is used in the more than $5 trillion currency market to determine the price of trades and the value of large institutional holdings. Traders at the banks used instant messaging chat rooms to discuss where to set the fix.

First new strain found in the U.S. in several years

A new strain of rabies has been discovered in southern New Mexico, federal and state health officials confirmed Tuesday.

While it doesn’t present any more of a public health threat than the known strains of the potentially fatal disease, the discovery is generating curiosity in scientific circles because it’s the first new strain to be found in the United States in several years.

“It’s exciting. It’s related to another bat strain. It’s similar but unique, so the question is what’s the reservoir for this strain,” state public health veterinarian Paul Ettestad said.

A rare set of identical female triplets — including two conjoined at the pelvis — have been born at a south Texas hospital.

Corpus Christi Medical Center said the three baby girls — Catalina, Ximena and Scarlett — were delivered Saturday by C-Section one day shy of 34 weeks. All weighed 4 pounds, 11 ounces and were currently breathing without the assistance of a respirator, the hospital said.

Parents Sylvia Hernandez and Roel Torrez called the girls a miracle sent from God.

“God chose us to take care of these babies,” Torrez said in a statement released by the hospital. “We put our faith in God’s hands first and everything will be alright.”
