SANFORD, Fla.

Police had said that spying on groups like anti-war organizations was necessary leading up to New York’s 2004 Republican National Convention. But documents obtained by The Associated Press show that the police department’s intelligence unit continued to keep close watch on political groups in 2008, long after the convention.

ROME (AP) — Pope Benedict is using a cane, apparently for the first time in public. The pope, who’s headed to Mexico and Cuba, walked up stairs to an Alitalia plane at Rome’s airport with the help of a black cane. Papal aides say the pope started using the cane about two months ago and uses it because it makes him feel more secure. He turns 85 next month.
