Breaking News Headlines: Obama: 'We are Heartbroken' Over AZ Firefighters

by Wochit 0:52 mins

A wildfire that killed nearly 20 members of an elite fire crew trying to help protect homes in a small central Arizona town has quadrupled in size, to 13 square miles. French President Francois Hollande demanded that the United States immediately stop its alleged eavesdropping on European Union diplomats and suggested that the widening surveillance scandal could derail negotiations for a free-trade deal potentially worth billions.
