Volcanic lava 'bomb' injures 23 people on tour boat in Hawaii

Volcanic lava 'bomb' injures 23 people on tour boat in HawaiiBy Jolyn Rosa HONOLULU (Reuters) - A blob of hot volcanic lava struck an ocean tour boat just off the Big Island of Hawaii on Monday, injuring nearly two dozen people in the worst casualty incident to date from the ongoing eruption of the Kilauea Volcano. A huge steam-driven explosion, caused by molten rock mixing with seawater as it poured from the shoreline, sent a "lava bomb" crashing through the roof of the boat and into the vessel's seating area, authorities said. The boat returned to port in Hilo on its own power less than an hour later, and three of the injured, including a woman in her 20s whose leg was broken, were taken to a local hospital by ambulance, Hawaii County Fire Department Battalion chief Darwin Okinaka said.

U.S. Treasury moves to protect identities of 'dark money' political donors

U.S. Treasury moves to protect identities of 'dark money' political donorsThe U.S. Treasury said on Monday that it will no longer require certain tax-exempt organizations including politically active nonprofit groups, such as the National Rifle Association and Planned Parenthood, to identify their financial donors to U.S. tax authorities. The policy change, heralded by conservatives as an advance for free speech, maintains donor disclosure requirements for traditional charity groups organized to receive tax-exempt donations under a section of the Internal Revenue code known as 501(c)(3), the Treasury said. "Americans shouldn't be required to send the IRS information that it doesn't need to effectively enforce our tax laws, and the IRS simply does not need tax returns with donor names and addresses to do its job in this area," U.S. Treasury Secretary Steven Mnuchin said in a statement.

Delayed arraignment for suspect in Massachusetts police shootingA Massachusetts man suspected of killing a police officer and a bystander with the officer's pistol will not be formally charged on Monday because he is still recovering from wounds sustained during a gunfight with police, officials said. Suspect Emanuel Lopes, 20, was arrested early Sunday after police in Weymouth, Massachusetts, received a report of a person driving erratically. "The Norfolk District Attorney's Office has now been informed that Emanuel Lopes will not be medically available for arraignment today," David Traub, a spokesman for the Norfolk County District Attorney's Office, said in a statement.
