CAR EXPLOSION-PENNSYLVANIA

ALLENTOWN — Autopsies are planned Monday on the bodies of three people found dead after a car explosion on a downtown street in Allentown, Pennsylvania, in what authorities called a “criminal incident” being probed by federal, state and local authorities. Lehigh County Coroner Scott Grim says three males were found dead after the 9:30 p.m. Saturday blast. He says he will probably be able to release the names after their identities are confirmed and their families notified. With AP photos and video.

UNIVERSITY-ABUSE CLAIM

— Even as top Pennsylvania officials assail the Catholic Church over its cover-up of clergy sexual abuse, a state agency is refusing to release a report on allegations of sexual abuse by a high-ranking state university administrator. Pennsylvania’s higher education agency won’t agree to allow the public to see the 10-year-old report on former East Stroudsburg University Vice President Isaac Sanders, despite lingering questions about how the accusers’ complaints were handled. The former students want the state’s evidence against Sanders to be released. By Michael Rubinkam. With AP photos.

IN BRIEF:
