The Israeli military says that it has investigated more than 40 potentially illegal actions by its forces during the war in the Gaza Strip this summer and announced this week that it has opened criminal investigations into five cases.

In Gaza, Jamila Eleywa, the director of a home for disabled people that was hit in July, killing two residents, hopes she'll learn why her building was hit.

"Why?" she said at Gaza City's al-Shifa Hospital, where the injured residents were taken. "Why they did that?"

Senate Moves Forward In Bid To Limit Campaign Funds

People stand with signs on Capitol Hill as Senate and House Democrats called for an amendment to the Constitution aimed at curbing special interests' financial clout in elections.
J. Scott Applewhite AP

Originally published on Tue September 9, 2014 7:11 am

When Sen. Joe Donnelly (D-Ind.) called the vote tally, it looked like a big win for advocates of the constitutional amendment: 79 ayes, 18 nays. That's a dozen votes more than the 67-vote majority needed to actually move the amendment out of the Senate and over to the House.
