About 100 people gathered near the San Ysidro border crossing to show support for Sgt. Andrew Tahmooressi, who is being held in a Mexican jail on weapons charges. Tahmooressi, who did two tours of duty in Afghanistan, missed the last U.S. exit off the 5 Freeway and ended up in Mexico on April 1. Border agents arrested him after finding a shotgun, handgun and rifle in his truck. The guns are legal in the U.S., but not in Mexico. He was in San Diego to get treatment for PTSD.

Donetsk, Ukraine: A pro-Russian gunman walks by coffins of those killed in fighting with Ukrainian troops for control of the city’s airport at a morgue.  The Kiev government condemned the insurgency roiling the east as the work of “terrorists” bent on destroying the country and blames Russia for fomenting it.
