A 72-hour truce went into effect in the Gaza Strip and Israel early 05 August after a last-minute flurry of rockets and airstrikes. The Egypt-brokered ceasefire, agreed between Israel and Hamas-led militant groups, began at 8 am (0500 GMT). Both sides agreed to refrain from fighting and hold indirect talks in Cairo on a permanent truce. Gaza residents began to leave their homes as soon as the ceasefire came into effect. Main streets and markets filled with traffic and people. The remaining Israeli ground troops in Gaza were to withdraw and redeploy to the Israeli side of the border, military spokesman Peter Lerner said. (EPA/ATEF SAFADI)

Baltimore's controversial curfew law, the strictest in the nation, took effect Friday night with the aim of protecting children. The curfew requires those 13 and younger to be indoors by 9.

Ten years after Greece hosted the world's greatest sporting extravaganza, many of its once-gleaming Olympic venues have been abandoned, while others are used occasionally for non-sporting events such as conferences and weddings. For many Greeks who swelled with pride at the time, the Olympics are now a source of anger as the country struggles through a six-year depression, record unemployment, homelessness and poverty. Just days before the anniversary of the Aug. 13-29 Games in 2004, many question how Greece, among the smallest countries to ever host the Games, has benefited from the multi-billion dollar event.

An archaeology museum in Philadelphia has made an extraordinary find — in its own storage rooms. The Penn Museum, part of the University of Pennsylvania, announced Tuesday that it had rediscovered a 6,500-year-old human skeleton believed to have been a man at least 50 who stood 5-foot-9. The remains were originally excavated from southern Iraq around 1930. Museum officials said the complete human skeleton had been stored in a coffin-like box but with no trace of identifying documentation. Skeletons of the same time period, particularly complete remains, are extremely rare, the Penn researchers said. They hope a skeletal analysis will reveal more about the population's diet, stresses and ancestral origins. Photos: Kyle Cassidy / Penn Museum

A shark and an elderly crocodile went head-to-head on an Australian river as a boatload of tourists watched in amazement. Passengers on a crocodile-spotting tour in the Northern Territory got more than they bargained for Tuesday when they spotted the reptile clasping its jaws around a bull shark. The incident occurred during a ride along the Adelaide River near the Kakadu National Park. The group had been watching crocodiles jump for a piece of buffalo meat on a stick. A reptile nicknamed "Brutus" was the most impressive. He is estimated to be 80-years-old and 18 feet long. As the boat returned to the jetty, he was spotted clasping the shark. As the reptile dragged his prey back into the water the shark thrashed, but could not escape. Photo: Getty Images
