WASHINGTON (AP) â€” Sen. John McCain is calling for a Watergate-style congressional panel to investigate the deaths of four Americans, including Ambassador Chris Stevens, at the U.S. Consulate in Benghazi, Libya. The Arizona Republican tells "CBS This Morning" he believes the unanswered questions surrounding events at Benghazi on Sept. 11 require such a select committee.

CHICAGO (AP) â€” A Phoenix-area man and his brother who bilked elderly Chicago residents out of more than $750,000 in home equity are each going to federal prison for 14 years.

PHOENIX (AP) â€” Arizona wildlife managers say an annual survey shows the population of endangered Mount Graham red squirrels seems to be holding relatively steady. About 214 squirrels were surveyed this year in the Pinaleno Mountains in southeastern Arizona. That's a slight decrease from last year. Wildlife managers say the species' recent population trends have been most affected by habitat loss due to fire and insect infestations and poor cone crops caused by drought.
