They faced up to 10 years in prison. Fox News has the sentence they received instead.   “Just sentenced to 45 days in prison and fined around $110 only, for illegally entering and living in that country during Bin Laden’s nine years on the run.   Russian officials say 31 people have been killed in an airplane crash in Siberia. The cause of the crash isn’t yet known. The 12 survivors are said to be in serious condition -- and euronews says at least five are critical.   “It’s the deadliest air disaster in Russia since a Yak-42 plane crashed near the city of Yaroslavl last September, killing 44 people and wiping out the Lokomotiv Yaroslavl ice hockey team.”   A device left on a plane caused a shutdown at Dallas Love Field airport on Sunday. CNN reports the “robotic device” was actually a student’s science project.   “A professor and his students wound up being detained, and it turns out one of the kids accidentally left the robot on the plane.”   Finally, the parents of Florida teen Trayvon Martin are expected to ask the Justice Department to investigate the State Attorney’s office.   Last week, ABC news reported the lead investigator in the February shooting recommended the arrest of George Zimmerman, but was overruled by the State Attorney.
