People like the Yazidis, Coptic Christians, and Assyrians, who have survived persecution over the centuries and are now threatened by ISIS, other Islamists or civil war. These ancient religions offer many clues about the past.
Sedona property rights won't be heard by top court
The Arizona Supreme Court won't consider appeals of a ruling stemming from a voter-approved property rights law.
Separate appeals were filed by the city of Sedona and a business that owned a luxury home that the city said was a rental property.
A trial judge had upheld Sedona's ordinance generally banning short-term residential rentals, but that ruling was overturned by the state Court of Appeals, which said Sedona's rental ban appears to run afoul of the property rights law.
