From President Obama's national security advisor1, a benign2 evaluation3 of how much Pakistan knew about bin4 Laden5's hideout in Abbottabad.

"We don't have evidence at this point that the political, military and intelligence leadership of Pakistan knew about the bin Laden operation in Abbottabad, Pakistan."

Tom Donilon spoke6 on Fox News Sunday. NPR's David Folkenflik says the national security advisor today stressed the importance of the US-Pakistan relationship.

National Security Advisor Thomas Donilon made his remarks during multiple television appearances. These comments came from ABC's "This Week" with Christiane Amanpour.

"They have been an essential partner of ours in the war against al-Qaeda and in our efforts against terrorism. And that really can't be dismissed."

Donilon said the White House decision not to tell Pakistan of the raid until after the fact reflected operational security, not a lack of trust in Pakistani officials, but he said the administration is relying on cooperation to get intelligence from several of bin Laden's wives, whom Pakistan now has in custody7.

In Syria, security forces stormed neighborhoods in the city of Homs overnight, while more than 200 people were taken into custody in the coastal8 town of Baniyas. The BBC's John Yore reports it's all part of a government crackdown on protesters.

Syrian state television confirmed that troops and security forces moved into the central city of Homs during the night. It said a number of what it called "armed saboteurs" had been killed or wounded, arrests made and quantities of arms and ammunition9 seized. Homs, a city of about a million, has been a hotbed of protest. On Friday, around 15 demonstrators were reportedly shot dead there after Friday prayers. The authorities say 11 soldiers and police were also shot dead on Friday by what they called "armed terrorist groups."

The rising Mississippi forcing hundreds of evacuations, we get more on this story from NPR's David Schaper.

Authorities have been going door-to-door, urging residents in low-lying areas in and around Memphis to evacuate10, and hundreds have heeded11 the calls, staying in Red Cross shelters or with relatives on higher ground. Some waited too long and had to be evacuated12 by boat. Lauren Dearing of West Memphis, Arkansas says floodwaters aren't too close to her home yet, but she's worried.

"I'm honestly scared I'm gonna lose my home, and I don't, I don't like change. I don't like the fact that I might not be able to see my home in a few days. That really scares me."

Upriver in Kentucky, some residents have been able to return to their homes as the worst of the flooding might be over there, but the Mississippi still hasn't crested13 yet here in Memphis, and dangerous flooding is also predicted downriver in the Mississippi Delta14 in Louisiana.

Heavy weather in the winter and early spring has led parks officials to delay the opening of the Yosemite National Park in central California. Bob Hensley of Capital Public Radio reports Yosemite may not open until after the Memorial Day weekend.

Deep drifts left from record snowfalls are delaying installation of the cables on the famous Half Dome15 hiking route. Trail crews will have to wait until they can safely access the Granite16 Peak. Half Dome has become so popular that park rangers17 now issue permits to those wanting to make the climb. The serious snowpack is also keeping many high-altitude roads and trails closed in the park. Road crews are doing their best to clear the snow, but some areas are hard to reach. The upside of the snowpack is that the famous Yosemite Valley waterfalls will last well into the summer. Meanwhile, officials are warning water enthusiasts18 in the region to be careful as rivers and streams are going to be filled with fast-moving currents due to the melting snowpack. This includes a river that runs through Yosemite. For NPR News, I'm Bob Hensley in Modesto, California.

Thoroughbred Animal Kingdom was at 20-to-1 shot before the Kentucky Derby. Now, he's headed to Baltimore for the Preakness Stakes. Trainer Graham Motion:

"This is a very special horse. I was so impressed with how he handled everything."

The Preakness is the second jewel in horse racing's Triple Crown.

Marvel19 Comics hero 'Thor' crushed the box office competition this weekend.

"You're big. Fought bigger."

Ticket receipts for the 3D action picture from Paramount20 rang up at 66 million dollars. Behind it 'Fast Five' and 'Jumping The Broom.'
