Updates on Violent Detroit Dash Cam Arrest

Dozens of protesters rallied outside a police station in a Detroit suburb on Wednesday after NBC affiliate WDIV released police video appearing to show officers punching, kicking and Tasering a black man who had run a stop sign. "I can't even watch the tape of them beating me, because I get upset," said Floyd Dent, 57, who was arrested in the traffic stop in Inkster, Michigan on Jan. 28. Dent's account of the events differed widely from official police explanations: Police said he tried to flee a police car and threatened to kill the officers, but video shows Dent pulling over safely, and none of the officers' microphones were turned on during the arrest. The protest was organized by the Rev. Al Sharpton's National Action Network; Sharpton is the host of "PoliticsNation" on MSNBC, which is owned by NBC Universal. Read »

Harrowing Video Shows 1st Moments of Tunis Attack

Terrifying new video shows the moment a group of tourists realized the Tunisian museum they were about to visit was under attack by militants. Visitors — apparently Italian — who were being guided through the museum's famed collection of Roman mosaics glance around, startled, when their tour is interrupted by a loud bang, the video shows. "Did they shoot? Did they shoot?" a woman can be heard asking in Italian. As the sound of automatic gunfire begins, the group takes flight, running down a hall and stairs as they try to escape the violence. The woman who shot the video, Maria Rita Gelotti, escaped the attack by two Tunisian militants that left 20 tourists dead earlier this month; authorities are still looking for a third suspect. Read »

Forces Loyal to President Hadi Halt Houthi Push Towards Yemen's Aden

Forces loyal to Yemeni President Abd-Rabbu Mansour Hadi drove Houthi fighters from two towns they had seized hours earlier on Tuesday, thwarting an advance by the Shi'ite fighters towards the southern city of Aden where Hadi is believed to have taken refuge in a presidential compound, NBC News reported. Other Houthi units entered the Red Sea port of al-Mukha overnight placing the Iranian-backed fighters a short drive from the Bab al-Mandeb strait, a sealane vital to oil shipments, security officials and residents said. Over the weekend the U.S. military evacuated its advisors and intelligence officials from Yemen as the situation became increasingly chaotic. Read »

Woman Who Dated Robert Durst: "Something Was Wrong"

Linda Walker Zevallos, a Dallas woman who once dated millionaire murder suspect Robert Durst, said she broke off their six-month courtship in 2000 because she sensed "something was wrong," she told NBC News. Zevalos said she met Durst on a flight from New York to Dallas in April 2000, and that he occasionally visited to take her out to restaurants over their six months together. But she had already stopped dating Durst by the time that one of Durst's close friends, Susan Berman, was found fatally shot in her home in Beverly Hills, California. Durst was charged with first-degree murder this month in Berman's death. Read »
