Denny Hamlin held off a charging Brad Keselowski in the final laps of Sunday’s STP 500 at Martinsville Speedway to take home his fifth career win at the track. Though he did not lead most laps and was forced to the tail end of the lead lap due to a pit road penalty in the middle stages of the race, Hamlin was dominant when it counted. Hamlin is shown above with his girlfriend, Jordan Fish, and their daughter, Taylor. For full coverage of the STP 500, see Page 1-B. (Bulletin photo by Mike Paris)

Shiites killed by Islamic State group
Video shows 8 beheaded in Syria

IS has beheaded scores of people since capturing large parts of Iraq and Syria last year in a self-declared caliphate.
