By Ju-min Park and Sohee Kim INCHEON, South Korea (Reuters) - South Korean prosecutors said on Thursday that they had raided shipping safety watchdogs as part of expanded investigations following the sinking of a ferry last week in which more than 300 people were killed or missing presumed dead. "The objective was to investigate malpractices and corruption in the entire shipping industry," Song In-taek, head deputy chief prosecutor at Incheon District Prosecution Service, told reporters. The Korea Register of Shipping, which is in charge of testing and certifying ships, and the Korea Shipping Association (KSA), which is responsible for routine shipment inspections, were not immediately available for comment. Yonhap news agency said investigations would look at the possibility of corruption in testing ships and whether bribes were paid.

Security personnel search for clues at the site where senior Egyptian police officer Brig. Gen. Ahmed Zaki was killed after an explosive device placed under his car went off, in a western suburb of Cairo, Egypt, Wednesday, April 23, 2014. Another police officer died in a raid on a militant hideout in the country's second-largest city, Alexandria, officials said. The deaths came amid stepped-up attacks against Egyptian police and military as militant groups wage an increasingly violent campaign following the July 2013 ouster of Islamist President Mohammed Morsi. (AP Photo/Ahmed Gamil)CAIRO (AP) — An Islamic militant group in Egypt has claimed responsibility for a bombing that killed a senior police officer the day before.

(AP) — When they moved from Georgia to the theme park playground of central Florida four years ago, Anthony and Candice Johnson found work at a barbecue restaurant and a 7-Eleven. Their combined salaries nevertheless fell short of what they needed to rent an apartment, so the couple and their two children have instead been hopping among cheap motel rooms along U.S. 192.
