House delays Obamacare; shutdown looms

In a move that makes a government shutdown more likely, House Republicans approved a spending plan Sunday morning that would delay Obamacare for a year and repeal its tax on medical devices.

The temporary budget resolution now goes back to the Senate, where Democrats have consistently said any changes to President Barack Obama's signature healthcare law is a deal-killer.

On top of that, Obama has already issued a veto threat.

If Washington can't reach a deal, a government shutdown will begin at 12:01 a.m. Tuesday.

Death toll at 60 in Mumbai building collapse

The death toll from the five-story building collapse in Mumbai rose to 60 on Sunday, authorities said.

Fearing they may have pulled out the last of the survivors, officials have now ended their rescue operation, said Sachidanand Gawde of the National Disaster Response Force (NDRF).

Thirty three people were pulled out alive from the building since it collapsed Friday.
