GERMANTOWN, Md. - Natalie Lennartsson, a perky fourth grader who is 10 going on 17, said she didn't learn "a ton" of new things Wednesday at a soccer clinic hosted by the Washington Spirit, the local women's professional team. "We did a lot of drills," Natalie said. "But, you know, we already know a lot about the game." Of course she does. Natalie has been playing soccer since she was 6. At the clinic, for 100 young girls obsessed with soccer, Natalie wore a jersey from her traveling team, the North Carroll Nighthawks, based about an hour away in Maryland.   more...

The Rangers took advantage of a rookie's mistake to break open a tight Stanley Cup playoff opener Thursday night. Brad Richards and Derek Stepan each scored on a four-minute power play in the third period, propelling the Rangers to a 4-1 victory over the Philadelphia Flyers at Madison Square Garden. The score was tied, 1-1, seven minutes into the final period when Carl Hagelin was cruising up the left-wing boards. As he reached the red line and dumped the puck into the Flyers' end, the rookie Jason Akeson rammed into him, clipping Hagelin in the mouth with his stick.   more...

GENEVA - The United States, Russia, Ukraine and the European Union reached an agreement on Thursday evening that called for armed pro-Russian bands in eastern Ukraine to surrender the government buildings they have seized and that outlined other steps to defuse a crisis that has rattled the international community. The diplomatic accord, while limited in scope, represented the first time Russia and Ukraine had found common ground since protests toppled a pro-Moscow government in Kiev, leading the Kremlin to annex the Crimean Peninsula and threaten other parts of Ukraine with 40,000 troops on its border.   more...

President Obama has warned that Iran is not open for business, even as the United States has loosened some of its punishing economic sanctions as part of an interim nuclear pact. Yet, on Tuesday morning, Iran had an unlikely visitor: a plane, owned by the Bank of Utah, a community bank in Ogden that has 13 branches throughout the state. Bearing a small American flag on its tail, the aircraft was parked in a highly visible section of Mehrabad Airport in Tehran. But from there, the story surrounding the plane, and why it was in Iran - where all but a few United States and European business activities are prohibited - grows more mysterious.   more...

LOS ANGELES - The San Fernando Valley has served as home to award-winning movies like "E.T.," "Boogie Nights" and "Crash." But Raul Bocanegra, a state lawmaker representing a large swath of the valley, worries about the collapse of film and television production in his district and across Hollywood's home state. "There was a time when we actually made things," said Mr. Bocanegra, referring to the automobile and aerospace manufacturing plants that have left California. "Now, we make films here," he said. "If we're not careful, we will lose it."   more...

Mostafa Kamel Mostafa, an Egyptian-born cleric who became prominent for his fiery sermons at a British mosque, was more than just a preacher, a federal prosecutor said on Thursday. "He was a trainer of terrorists, and he used the cover of religion so he could hide in plain sight in London." The prosecutor, Edward Y. Kim, made that assertion before a Federal District Court jury in Manhattan in the government's opening statement in the trial of Mr. Mostafa, who was extradited from Britain in 2012 to face terrorism charges in New York. His is the second major terrorism trial in Manhattan in two months.   more...

With rising waves and swift currents off the southern coast of South Korea having largely stymied search operations around a capsized ferry late Thursday night, the fate of 271 people still missing was unknown. It was unclear even how many might still be aboard the vessel - which was underwater save for a small section of its keel - and if so whether any were in areas with pockets of air. Experts said that if there were air pockets, survival would depend in part on their size and the number of people in them.   more...
