ISLAMABAD, Pakistan - Osama bin Laden's call for Pakistanis to rise up against their US-allied military leader struck a chord among an angry, extremist minority, but resonated little among the wider public and was dismissed by the government Friday as "ridiculous."

Question of bias
JENA, LA - A judge on Friday denied a request to release a teenager whose arrest in the beating of a white classmate sparked this week's civil rights protest in Louisiana. Mychal Bell's request to be freed while an appeal is being reviewed was rejected at a juvenile court hearing, effectively denying him any chance at immediate bail, a person familiar with the case told The Associated Press. The person spoke on condition of anonymity because juvenile court proceedings are closed.


WASHINGTON - About 1 million Simplicity and Graco cribs are being recalled after three children became entrapped in their cribs and died of suffocation, the Consumer Product Safety Commission said Friday.
