The week's news at a glance.

New Orleans

Returning New Orleans residents are still discovering bodies overlooked in searches of the wreckage left by Hurricane Katrina more than seven months ago, The New York Times reported this week. Nine were found in March alone, along with a separate skull. Relatives found the body of a 45-year-old woman under a sofa in the living room of her house in the devastated Ninth Ward. One landlord put a “For Sale” sign outside a home unaware that there was a corpse in the attic. “In my opinion,” said Wanda Jackson, 40, whose 6-year-old nephew is still missing, “they forgot about us.”
