    Calculating the Risks in Pakistan A small group of U.S. military experts and intelligence officials convened in Washington for a classified war game last year, exploring strategies for securing Pakistan's nuclear arsenal if the country's political institutions and military safeguards began to fall apart.

    REFILE-China recalls air-fresheners after canisters explode BEIJING, June 10 (Reuters) - Beijing officials have ordered the recall of Fengying brand air-fresheners in the city after three canisters exploded, possibly due to recent high temperatures, the Xinhua news agency reported on Sunday.

    A Brooklyn elementary schoolteacher was removed from class and arrested on assault charges yesterday after a 10-year-old student with Down syndrome complained she doused him with air freshener when he passed gas.

"It's hard to believe she would do something like that," said Phyllis Esposito, 55, Fasone's neighbor in Marine Park. Esposito said Fasone, the married mother of two adult sons, has taught disabled children for years. "She's...
