ALPHARETTA, Ga. (AP) — The ongoing tensions between the families of the late megastar Whitney Houston and her ex-husband, R&B singer Bobby Brown, erupted Saturday during a memorial service for their daughter, Bobbi Kristina.
A piece of Boeing 777 wreckage washed up on an Indian Ocean island and suspected to belong to missing flight MH370 arrived Saturday at a French laboratory for analysis. If confirmed as being from the doomed Malaysia Airlines flight, the discovery would mark the first breakthrough in a case that has baffled aviation experts for 16 months. The convoy containing the two-metre (six-and-a-half-foot) wing part was escorted by police overland from Paris to the defence ministry laboratory near the southwestern city of Toulouse, encased in a wooden crate.

Brown's funeral at St. James United Methodist Church in Alpharetta, an Atlanta suburb, was private and closed to the public, but dozens of well-wishers stood behind police barricades outside. Brown died on Sunday at a hospice, six months after suffering irreversible brain damage in a still unexplained incident at her Roswell, Georgia, home.
Sandra Bland was pulled over in her car on July 10 by a white state trooper, Brian Encinia, for failing to signal a lane change. A prosecutor in Waller County, which is northwest of Houston and where the arrest and death happened, said on July 23 that an autopsy supported the medical examiner's initial ruling of suicide.
