WHY ALGERIAN TROOPS ARE SCOURING THE SAHARA DESERT Five foreign energy workers have vanished after being held hostage by radical Islamists. An official says they might have fled captivity and gotten lost. 5. HOW AMERICANS' VIEWS ON IMMIGRATION ARE SHIFTING More than 6 in 10 now favor allowing illegal immigrants to eventually become U.S. citizens, an AP-GfK poll shows. 6.

WHO'S GAINING RECOGNITION IN BRAZIL Long considered eyesores, Rio's shantytowns and the millions who live in them have literally been left off the map. That's changing. 9.
