12 Hurt At New Orleans Parade Shooting

Posted: Updated:

NEW ORLEANS (AP) - New Orleans police say 17 people have been wounded in a shooting during a Mother's Day parade in New Orleans on Sunday.
    
Police spokeswoman Remi Braden said in an email that many of the 17 victims were grazed and most of the wounds weren't life-threatening. No deaths were reported.
    
Police Superintendent Ronal Serpas told reporters that a 10-year-old girl grazed by a bullet was among those wounded in the shooting around 2 p.m. She was in good condition. He said three or four people were in surgery, but he didn't have their conditions.
    
Officers were interspersed among the hundreds of marchers, which is routine for an event like it.
    
Second-line parades are loose processions in which people dance down the street, often following behind a brass band.

    A cure for peanut allergy?

    Friday, August 18 2017 12:31 PM EDT2017-08-18 16:31:57 GMT

    KHQ.COM - Scientists may have found a cure for the peanut allergy. The experimental treatment combines a probiotic with small daily doses of peanut protein. It was tested on a group of Australian children four years ago, and after 18 months, more than 80 percent no longer showed symptoms of peanut allergy. Now a follow up study finds the majority of these children are still able to eat peanuts without an allergic reaction.

    How many nukes does North Korea really have?

    Friday, August 18 2017 7:51 AM EDT2017-08-18 11:51:27 GMT

    WASHINGTON (AP) - U.S. assessments of the size of North Korea's nuclear arsenal vary wildly.  Some conclude North Korea has or can make 30 to 60 nuclear weapons. Estimates by civilian experts cloud the picture. They guess North Korea has just a dozen to about 30 weapons. Size matters and not knowing makes it harder to develop a policy for deterrence and for the U.S. to defend itself and allies in the region.
