A terrorist attack that targeted a mosque in Egypt's Sinai Peninsula has left at least 200 people dead and as many as 130 wounded Friday, that country's state news agency reported.

The death toll makes it the biggest attack since the conflict in the North Sinai started six years ago.

The Middle East News Agency said the bombing and shooting attack took place in the city of Arish, which is about 30 miles from the border with the Gaza Strip.

When I was a kid, my mom always told me to rinse the dishes before putting them in the dishwasher. This was especially true for dishware with tacky residue. Peanut butter, cream cheese, frosting — these adversaries were simply too powerful for the dishwasher's meek cleanse. Today, still harboring a distrust of dishwashers, I tend to wash my dishes by hand.

But I often wonder about the consequences of my sponge-scrubbing ways — am I wasting water by avoiding the dishwasher, or saving it?

BALTIMORE (AP) - A police disciplinary board has cleared a Baltimore officer in a review of the death of a 25-year-old black man whose neck was broken in a police van.

The three-member panel ruled Friday that Lt. Brian Rice was not guilty on all charges. Rice is the highest ranking officer involved in the arrest and van transport of Freddie Gray in April 2015.

Gray died of a spinal cord injury a week after he was injured, setting off Baltimore's worst riots in decades. The unrest forced Maryland to bring in the National Guard.

WILMINGTON, Del. (AP) - Delaware's largest city has voted down a proposal to create a gun offender registry.

The News Journal reported Thursday that Wilmington's city council defeated the measure after a contentious discussion.

The Gun Offender Registration Act would have required all city residents convicted of gun crimes in Delaware to register with the Wilmington Police Department.  Those who fail to comply would face fines and jail time.
