 JP Morgan’s Jamie Dimon will remain chairman of the board, despite the bank’s $2 billion trading loss. Shareholders1 are also endorsing2 Dimon’s pay package from last year, which totaled $23 million. But despite the loss, the bank is still expected to outperform expectations. The annual shareholders meeting in Tampa wrapped up before the White House announced the Security and Exchange Commission would investigate the JP Morgan incident.

Dimon may have to answer tough questions though from Congress. NPR’s David Welna reports a prominent republican senator wants to hold hearing on the * deal. Batch 
Tennessee republican senator Bob Corker says JP Morgan’s bad bet on corporate3 debt is real life case for him and his colleagues to examine as regulators finish writing rules on what banks can and cannot invest in. Corker is on the banking4 committee which now plans to hold a hearing on the JP Morgan fiasco(惨败).
"There is * outcome here, and it’s going to be swift *, and I just think it’s our responsibility to aid in coming to a proper conclusion on that.”

In Columbia, a powerful bomb detonated on a busy commercial street left two people dead and injured many more. NPR’s Juan Ferrero in Bogota says the Columbian government is investigating whether the target was the former interior minister.
President Juan Manuel Santos said the attack could have been directed against former minister Fernando Londono. Londono, who is well-known for his criticism of the FARC guerrilla(游击队员) group suffered head injuries after the bomb blast near his car. His driver and a body guard were killed, authorities said, at least 20 more were injured by the explosion which went off just before the launch hour in an upscale district. It was unclear if the bomb was detonated on Londono’s vehicle or on a bus that was traveling next to his. The government has not publicly said who it believes is responsible. Juan Ferrero, NPR news, Bogota.
