File-This Oct. 6, 2001, file photo shows Gov. Marvin Mandel, accompanied by his wife, Jeanne, walking to the federal courthouse in Baltimore. Mandel, whose 26-year career in state government ended with his 1977 conviction on political corruption charges, has died. He was 95. According to a statement from his family, Mandel passed away Sunday, Aug. 30, 2015, after spending two days with family while celebrating his son's 50th birthday. Once considered one of Maryland's most powerful and effective governors, Mandel presided over a major reorganization of state government, built a subway in Baltimore and spent $1 billion on school construction. But his accomplishments were overshadowed by his personal tribulations, which included his trial and a messy divorce when he moved out of the governor's mansion, leaving his first wife behind so he could marry another woman. (AP Photo/Bill Smith)ANNAPOLIS, Md. (AP) — A colorful and complex figure in Maryland politics, Marvin Mandel was seen by some as an innovator who reorganized state government to be more efficient. For others, he was forever stained by his conviction for selling the powers of office.

Policemen stand guard near Independent National Electoral Commission in KanoBy Camillus Eboh ABUJA (Reuters) - Nigeria's security agency said on Sunday it had made significant breakthroughs in the fight against Boko Haram and arrested 20 prominent members of the militant Islamist group accused of orchestrating several deadly attacks. The Department of State Services (DSS) said 20 "notable commanders and frontline members" of the jihadist group had been arrested in Lagos, Kano, Plateau, Enugu and Gombe states between July 8 and Aug. 25 this year. President Muhammadu Buhari has made halting Boko Haram's six-year-old insurgency a priority, but a Reuters tally shows the militants have killed more than 700 people in Nigeria in bomb attacks and shootings since he came to office on May 29.
