EXCLUSIVE – Off the bike and onto the campaign trail: Lance Armstrong, cancer survivor and record seven-time winner of the Tour de France, will announce his retirement from competitive cycling today, a top adviser tells POLITICO. Armstrong, 39, will also announce that he will co-chair a campaign for the California Cancer Research Act initiative, which would fund cancer research by adding $1 to the price of a pack of cigarettes in the Golden State, the adviser said. Armstrong, who had ended his international career last month, has faced a spate of doping allegations since he returned to cycling, and is the focus of a federal criminal investigation in Los Angeles. Sports Illustrated reported last month that agents are looking into whether he was involved in an organized doping operation, and a grand jury hearing testimony from his associates and confidants. Diagnosed with testicular cancer in 1996, the Texan founded the Lance Armstrong Foundation and popularized the sunny yellow … [Read more...] about Obama ‘confident’ of Social Security reform — Curveball admits lying – Iran bounced back from Stuxnet — Carney’s first briefing – Senate Dem. leaders to White House – Crider, Jay Carson b’days

DHAKA, Bangladesh - Security officials searched on Sunday for evidence and the possible masterminds of the weekend hostage-taking in an upscale restaurant in Bangladesh's capital. The government has denied the claim of responsibility by the Islamic State of Iraq and Syria (ISIS) for the attack that left 28 dead, including six attackers and 20 of the hostages. Police released photographs of the bodies of five attackers, along with their first names: Akash, Badhon, Bikash, Don and Ripon. The men belonged to the banned domestic group Jumatul Mujahedeen Bangladesh, or JMB, and their families hadn't heard from them in months, according to police. Asked whether they might also have had links with ISIS, Police Inspector General A.K.M. Shahidul Hoque said authorities were investigating that possibility. Despite the police saying ISIS links were being investigated, the home minister refuted the possibility that the Islamic State could have been behind the attack. Bangladesh's government insists … [Read more...] about CBS News Logo Bangladesh still denies ISIS role in Dhaka hostage horror
