 Colorado prosecutors1 have formally charged former doctoral student James Holmes with 142 counts, including murder, attempted murder and position of explosives in connection with the Aurora2 massacre3 nearly two weeks ago. Holmes appeared in court today, reportedly looking as days he did as in his first court hearing last week.

In Syria, fighting continues with battles raging on several fronts including Syria's largest city of Aleppo. The Syrian crisis is dominating Defense4 Secretary Leon Panetta's diplomatic mission in the Middle East this week. He kicked off the trip in Tunisia which inspired the Arab uprising. Panetta is also trying to allay5 concerns about the US's response to Iran's nuclear program. He says so far, economic pressure is working. 
These sanctions are having a serious impact in terms of the economy in Iran. But Israel argues the sanctions have failed because they have not stopped Iran's nuclear program. 
Well, Republican Presidential candidate Mitt6 Romney says if elected he will stand with Israel on matters of security and the economy. He told Jewish supporters in Jerusalem today that their culture is part of the reason the Israeli economy is stronger than the Palestinian economy. While Palestinian officials called Romney's comments racist7. More on than from Daniel Estrin in Jerusalem. 
Romney told a group of wealthy supporters that Israel's GDP per capita is dramatically higher than the Palestinian GDP per capita. He said Israel's accomplishments8 are due to its culture and entrepreneurial business spirit, Jewish survival through out history, and also due to god. Saeb Erekat, an aide to the Palestinian president, called Romney's comment insensitive. He says Palestinians can't realise their economic potential because of Israeli restrictions9. Today's breakfast fundraiser in Jerusalem added more than 1 million dollars for Romney's campaign. Part of an effort to win American Jewish voters. For NPR News, I'm Daniel Estrin in Jerusalem.
Well, Romney was also in Poland, the certain final leg of his tour to build up his foreign policy credentials10 he picked up the leaders endorsement11
And to the Olympics, in Men's Gymnastics, not the America's finest moment, they watched China win its second straight Olympic title while Japan came away with silver, and Britain the bronze. As NPR's Mike Pesca reports. 
** gymnasts suffered a few falls not really doom12 their chances. John Orozco, I had a brutal13 on the ** . Then Uchimura fell of the horse. A lot of problems all around. There were moments of glory which perhaps some of these athletes can build on in the individual competitions which Leyva and Orozco are qualified14. But the US came in fifth, but not their best that. NPR's Mike Pesca reporting.

Three members of an all female punk band are on trail in Russia over a protest, staged in one of Moscow's main Orthodox cathedrals. We have details from NPR's Corey Flintoff.
The three members of the band called Pussy15 Riot could face seven years in prison for this, an unauthorised performance at Moscow's Christ Saviour16 cathedral. The song calls on the Virgin17 Mary to deliver Russia from Vladimir Putin who is then running for president. The defendants18 denied that their act was motivated by religious hatred19. They say they were protesting the support given to Putin by the church leader Patriarch Kirill. The trail of the three young women is widely seen as a test of how strongly President Putin intends to crack down on dissidents. Corey Flintoff NPR News, Moscow.
