A U.S. official tells CNN the phone of the co-pilot of Malaysia Airlines Flight 370 was on and made contact with a cell tower in Penang, Malaysia, about 250 miles from where the plane's transponder last sent a signal.

A man with a history of anti-Semitic rhetoric is suspected of shooting to death a boy and his grandfather outside a Jewish community center near Kansas City, Kansas, and a woman at a nearby Jewish assisted living facility.
Investigators are calling it a hate crime. The suspected shooter in police custody is Frazier Glenn Cross. He is the founder and former leader of two white supremacy groups, according to the Southern Poverty Law Center.
David Pakman, who interviewed Cross on his radio show in 2010, is OutFront.
The autonomous underwater vehicle Bluefin-21 - said to be the search's best hope for finding Malaysia Airlines Flight 370 - has aborted it's first mission and returned to the surface of the Indian Ocean.
The mission was supposed to take 24 hours to map the first portion of the search area: 16 hours to map, four hours' of travel time to the ocean floor and back, and four hours to analyze the data gathered.
In an interview with CNN's Erin Burnett, Captain Mark Matthews, who heads the U.S. presence in the search effort, explains why the underwater robot returned to the surface earlier than planned.View my Flipboard Magazine.
