By Yasmeen Abutaleb and Lisa Baertlein NEW YORK/LOS ANGELES (Reuters) - The White House is due to issue an ambitious plan to slow the growing and deadly problem of antibiotic resistance over the next five years, one that requires massive investments and policy changes from a broad array of U.S. government health agencies, according to a copy of the report reviewed by Reuters.

By Dan Whitcomb LOS ANGELES (Reuters) - Lawyers for a Northern California man who told police his girlfriend was abducted for ransom, an incident now called a hoax by authorities, said on Thursday their client stood by his story and had been drugged and restrained by the kidnappers. Aaron Quinn called police on Monday to report that his live-in girlfriend, Denise Huskins, had been taken hours earlier from his home in the Bay Area community of Vallejo by kidnappers who demanded $8,500 in ransom. Huskins, a 30-year-old physical therapist, reappeared unharmed on Wednesday nearly 400 miles (640 km) away in her hometown of Huntington Beach, south of Los Angeles. Vallejo police detectives who interviewed Huskins said there was no evidence to support a kidnapping, calling the incident "an orchestrated event and not a crime." Huskins has since been in seclusion and retained an attorney, and police say they have been unable to speak with her further. . . more
