An explosion and fire at a mine in western Turkey kills at least 166 people and traps hundreds more underground.
    
2. A POSSIBLE PATH TO PEACE EMERGES IN UKRAINE

3. GOOGLING GETS MORE COMPLICATED

5. JUDGE STRIKES DOWN IDAHO GAY MARRIAGE BAN
    
Gay and lesbian couples in Idaho could start getting married as soon as Friday after the state's ban on same-sex marriage was ruled unconstitutional.
    
6. WHAT PRIME MINISTER IS HEADED FOR PRISON
    
Israel's Ehud Olmert is sentenced to six years in prison for his role in a bribery scandal, a stunning downfall for a politician who just a few years claimed to be close to reaching a peace deal with the Palestinians.
    
7. THE TROUBLE WITH AIR BAGS
    
They don't always deploy as expected. The problem came to light as investigators were looking into the deaths of 13 people who died in crashes involving older GM cars with defective ignition switches. In each of those cases, the air bags failed to deploy.
    
8. 20,000 HOMES EVACUATED IN CALIFORNIA WILDFIRE

Barbara Walters says she isn't "walking into the sunset" as she leaves "The View," and will remain executive producer of the New York-based talk show she created, although on May 17 she says she plans to be "sleeping until noon."
