Huge hogs that could weigh over 300 pounds are terrorizing a suburban Georgia community looking for food to eat in the garbage.

CNN's Nick Valencia reports.

Some residents in Lithonia, Georgia, say there are at least four feral pigs on the loose, eating garbage, chasing kids, and scaring parents.

Feral pigs can grow tusks and become aggressive.

Safety Advocates Sue For Car Camera

Rear-view cameras are recommended by the government but not required so many car makers haven't installed them.

That wiggle room is costing lives and now car safety advocates are suing the federal government to make a change, CNN's Rene Marsh reports.

It was October 2002 when Dr. Greg Gulbransen got into his car, checked the mirrors, looked over his shoulder, and reversed.

He accidentally ran over his son Cameron.

In 2008, Congress passed a law in the child's name requiring the department of transportation do something to prevent back up accidents.

But it's more than two years past the congressional deadline and there's still no action.

Gulbransen and three safety groups are now suing the government and calling for mandatory rear-view cameras in all vehicles.

How Rouhani's Statement About Holocaust Played In Iran

Iranian President Hassan Rouhani told CNN's Christiane Amanpour that 'any crime that happens in history against humanity is reprehensible.'

In a departure from former President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad, Iran's new president acknowledged the Holocaust occurred against Jews, but how was the statement received back home?  CNN's Reza Sayah reports.

Sayah says back in Iran, Rouhani's comment received little media attention with the exception of Fars News.

The semi-official hardline news agency claimed Rouhani never explicitly acknowledged the holocaust and accused CNN of fabricating the report by mistranslating Rouhani's answer.

CNN stands by its reporting and the translation was provided by the President's own translator.

Amanpour vehemently denied the allegations as well.

FBI: Navy Yard Shooter 'Delusional'

Aaron Alexis was under "the delusional belief that he was being controlled or influenced by extremely low frequency electromagnetic waves" before he embarked on a bloody shooting rampage at the Washington Navy Yard, an FBI official said Wednesday.

CNN's Joe Johns reports.

The 34-year-old contractor, who until a few years ago had served in the Navy, spelled out this belief – with the words, "My ELF weapon" – in the sawed-off Remington 870 shotgun he brought into the military facility's Building #197 on the morning of September 16.

"ELF" refers to low-frequency electromagnetic waves, a technology used for submarine communications that conspiracy theorists believe the government employs to monitor and manipulate unsuspecting citizens, the FBI said.

"Ultra low frequency attack is what I've been subject to for the last 3 months," read a message obtained by federal authorities from Alexis's thumb drives, phones and computers. "And to be perfectly honest, that is what has driven me to this."
