WHAT'S NEXT FOR HIJACKERCARACAS, Venezuela (AP) — A crowd of anti-government activists wrested free an opposition politician as he was being hauled away in handcuffs by security forces following a raid on the party headquarters of President Nicolas Maduro's biggest foe. Dario Ramirez, a city councilman, shouted "I'm an elected official" as national guardsmen, surrounded by journalists and party activists, frantically looked for an escape route from the Caracas shopping mall where they took him into custody. Once outside, dozens of activists banging pots and pans in protest attacked the squad, freeing Ramirez by force and speeding him away on a motorcycle.VIENNA (AP) — It took months of arduous bargaining before Iran and six world powers could agree on a first-step nuclear deal.

And the deadliest wreck killed 47 people in the town of Lac-Megantic, Quebec.LONDON (AP) — A saliva test for teenage boys with mild symptoms of depression could help identify those who will later develop major depression, a new study says.

He thanked the two, and viewers for expressing concern.Lightning-fast bobsledders, a biathalon course shrouded in fog, and skiers tumbling through the air and on the ground are all part of the sights from Monday's Winter Olympics competition.
