A New York Times story cites a classified White House memo as saying U-S officials have doubts about the prime minister's ability to stop the bloodshed.

SELCUK, Turkey (AP) - Pope Benedict is visiting one of the holiest Christian places in Turkey. He's holding a Mass at a stone house near the Aegean coast, where the Virgin Mary is thought by some to have spent her last years.

ANDERSON, Mo. (AP) - Investigators in Missouri don't think there's an arsonist on the loose after the deadly blaze at a group home. They're expected to say at a news conference this morning that the fire was an accident. Ten people died. The first funerals are today.

NEW YORK (AP) - According to a study from U-S-C, one in five American parents think their kids spent too much time on the Internet.

BURBANK, Calif. (AP) - Snoop Dogg was leaving the N-B-C studios after appearing on Jay Leno's show last night when police arrested him. The rapper is being investigated for illegally possessing a handgun and drugs. Two members of his entourage also were arrested.
