Sri Lanka's Easter Bombings Bring Renewed Violence To A Long-Troubled Country

Updated at 1:09 a.m. ET Tuesday A day after a wave of deadly suicide attacks in Sri Lanka killed more than 300 people and wounded hundreds more, President Maithripala Sirisena on Monday granted the military sweeping powers to arrest and detain suspects. Politicians emerged from an emergency meeting pointing fingers at a little-known local Muslim group, National Thowfeek Jamaath. They said all seven suicide bombers who attacked Christian churches and prominent hotels across the island nation on Easter Sunday were Sri Lankan nationals; however, they also said the suspects could not have succeeded in the highly coordinated attacks without international help. At least one fresh blast shattered nerves in the traumatized capital, Colombo, where schools and offices were ordered shut Monday and Tuesday. A vehicle exploded as police tried to defuse explosives found in it, near one of the churches attacked the day earlier. An unexploded device was also found on the road to the capital's

Anaïs Mitchell's 'Hadestown' Musical Makes Its Broadway Debut

More than a decade ago, Anaïs Mitchell was running late for one of her shows. The singer-songwriter, in her 20s at the time, was trying to get from one gig to another and found herself lost. Along the drive, a song lyric popped into her head. "The lines that came were, 'Wait for me I'm coming. In my garters and pearls with what melody did you barter me from the wicked underworld,'" she remembers. Those lyrics never made it into one of Mitchell's productions, but as the musician says, they pointed her to the story of Eurydice , the Greek myth that follows two lovers, Eurydice and Orpheus. Eurydice goes to the underworld and Orpheus follows to bring her back. In the story, Orpheus sings a song so sweet, it melts the heart of Hades. Mitchell's fascination with this story has taken her on journey across mediums, one that is as winding as her hero's quest. She's turned these lyrics into a song, then a concept album in 2010 called Hadestown , stage productions in the U.S., Canada and London

Copyright 2019 NPR. To see more, visit ARI SHAPIRO, HOST: House Democrats are divided over how Congress should respond to special counsel Robert Mueller's Russia investigation.

Samsung Delays Launch Of $2,000 Folding Phone After Reviewers Find Broken Screens

With its folding 7.3-inch screen, Samsung's Galaxy Fold was touted as the biggest Galaxy phone yet. Priced at nearly $2,000, the folding smartphone was due to go on sale this Friday. But Samsung announced on Monday that it's delaying the release after reviewers found problems with the phone's screen. In a statement, Samsung acknowledged the device "needs further improvements that could ensure the best possible user experience. To fully evaluate this feedback and run further internal tests, we have decided to delay the release of the Galaxy Fold. We plan to announce the release date in the coming weeks." Samsung said initial findings showed that the issues "could be associated with impact on the top and bottom exposed areas of the hinge. There was also an instance where substances found inside the device affected the display performance." "We will take measures to strengthen the display protection," the company said. "We will also enhance the guidance on care and use of the display
