From NPR News in Washington, I'm Lakshmi Singh.

Vice President Joe Biden confirms the Justice Department will appeal a US Court's decision to drop manslaughter charges against five former Blackwater guards. The contractors were accused of fatally shooting 17 people including women and children in 2007. Biden told the President of Iraq today that he personally regrets the incident. Biden's trip to Baghdad this weekend is aimed at defusing a political crisis before Iraq's election in March. With more on that, here is NPR's Quil Lawrence.

Biden met with the American ambassador as well as the commander of US forces in Iraq before heading into a series of meetings with government officials. A committee of the Iraqi Parliament has banned more than 500 candidates from running because of alleged ties to Saddam Hussein's Baath Party. But Sunni Arab groups in particular claimed that the move is aimed at preserving the Shi'ite domination of Iraq's government. The White House is concerned that without a compromise, sectarian divisions could once again become violent. Also today, the U.S. Marine Corps is ending its mission in Iraq after almost seven years. 3,000 marines are leaving Anbar Province where violence has decreased drastically. After the elections in March, US troop levels will rapidly drop from over 100,000 to just 50,000 soldiers. Quil Lawrence, NPR News, Baghdad.

The United Nation says the search-and-rescue phase is over in Haiti but the Haitian government disagrees. NPR's Tamara Keith has more from Port-au-Prince.

In a statement, the UN Office for the Coordination of Humanitarian Affairs said the government in Haiti has declared an end to the search for survivors of the earthquake, but that wasn't the message of the government's makeshift headquarters at a Port-au-Prince police station. At a press conference, Haiti's Communications Minister Marie-Laurence Jocelyn Lassegue said rescue efforts continue. "I don't say for tomorrow and the day after tomorrow, but for now we're still looking for people. And when we stop, we say that loudly." Eleven days after the quake, it is unlikely anyone trapped in the rubble is still alive. About 132 people were pulled out alive by rescue crews. Many of those crews have already headed home. Tamara Keith, NPR News, Port-au-Prince.

In the US, the storm system that wreaked havoc on parts of California and other western states is moving east. Bruce Terry with the National Weather Service says a band of heavy rain will stretch across the East Coast. "There will be significant rains mainly from Coast of England all the way, southwest near the Golf Coast states, and in a lot of places we are looking at least one to two inches of rain, and in some places it could be a little bit more." California and Arizona are drying out from a week's worth of storm where the cost in damages and storm preparation has cost the millions. State of emergency declarations have been issued in parts of each state.

This is NPR News.

Today British police arrested the head of a UK company on suspicion of fraud. The company allegedly sold bogus bomb-detecting devices to Iraq and 20 other countries. Larry Miller reports from London.

The ADE 651 is a hand-held device with an antenna that was meant to detect explosives. It does not operate by battery. Promotional material says it's powered only by the user's static electricity. Iraq spent 40,000 dollars on each portable bomb detector and in total 85 million dollars. It was to be used at vehicle inspection checkpoints. However, a BBC investigation alleged it doesn't work and that a key component was in fact the tag used by stores to prevent theft. The BBC says there's concern that detectors fail
to stop bomber attacks which killed hundreds of people. The British government has now banned the export of the device to Iraq and Afghanistan. Iraq's prime minister has ordered an investigation. For NPR News, I'm Larry Miller in London.

The Associated Press is reporting an oil spill off the Coast of southeastern Texas. US Coast Guard Petty Officer Renee Aiello is quoted as saying that 450,000 gallons of crude were spilled when a 600-foot tanker collided with a towing vessel in Port Arthur this morning. There has been no reports of injuries.

Emmy Award-winning actress Jean Simmons has died. Simmons played opposite Marlon Brando in "Guys and Dolls" and was Ophelia to Laurence Olivier's Oscar-winning Hamlet. Simmons was nominated for best supporting actress. Simmons died yesterday of lung cancer at her home in Santa Monica. She was 80 years old.
