WASHINGTON — Eight senators who have spent weeks trying to write a bipartisan bill to overhaul immigration laws have privately agreed on the most contentious part of the draft — how to offer legal status to the nation’s 11 million illegal immigrants.

Kenyan church attacked in 2007 moves on despite scars

Church

NAIROBI, Kenya — The Rev. Joshua Kimuyu pointed where his church floor is broken and black, a scar from an attack five years old.

The dark spot is a constant reminder of the church’s vulnerability during national elections. But for Kimuyu there was no question of keeping its doors shut this Sunday, the…
