Chemical weapons coverup suspected in Syria as inspectors remain blocked
With 11 days now having passed, concerns are growing that evidence could fall prey to tampering or be otherwise compromised. Syrian state media says government forces have started bombing an Islamic State-held zone in Damascus. "We also hear this".

Farquhar, who remains in critical but neurologically stable condition at RUSH University Medical Center, suffered a brain hemorrhage and ruptured aneurysm during the Sox game against the Astros Friday night at Guaranteed Rate Field. They left a quiet clubhouse to take batting practice and play catch, but players said their minds were on Farquhar.

"You just can't imagine this happening, not to a baseball player in the middle of the game", Sohail Shahpar, Farquhar's longtime agent, told USA Today. I'm praying for him and hoping for nothing but the best. "We're going in the right direction and we're guardedly optimistic about the outcome".

Renteria and his players agreed it was fortunate that the incident occurred where Farquhar could receive medical treatment immediately. The Sox placed him on the 10-day disabled list Saturday and recalled Gregory Infante from Triple-A Charlotte. His teammates told reporters they were crushed by the news. "And prayers are more necessary than talk". My God, this certainly shows the fragility of life and how we take every day for granted. "Danny has been around the league, so I'm sure there are a lot of guys that know him and will root for him".
