I am Asieh Namdar at the CNN Center in Atlanta.

We begin with new developments in the case of a British man who police say faked his death. British authorities have charged John Darwin with obtaining a money transfer by deception and making an untrue statement to get a passport. He has a court appearance Monday. Darwin reappeared last week, five years after he was believed to have drowned. Two British tabloids called Darwin's wife as saying mounting debt and love made her go along with her husband's elaborate plan. She says they have lived in secret for years, even keeping their sons in the dark.

Also an update on a missing pregnant woman in Ohio. Attorney Karyn McConnell Hancock has been found alive. Police in Toledo are not giving many details, only that the woman is alive and that there will be a news conference later. McConnell Hancock is six months pregnant. She had last been seen Wednesday at her law office in Toledo.

We are also learning more about the growing controversy over the CIA's destruction of some sensitive videotapes. Sources say then White House counsel Harriet Miers and the CIA's top lawyer warned against it. But one source says the lawyer wasn't informed of the plan until the tapes had already been destroyed. The tapes showed the questioning of two terrorism suspects using controversial methods. The CIA says they were destroyed because they posed an intelligence risk. But ConGREssional Democrats are demanding an investigation.

Defense Secretary Robert Gates (is) pushing for more international pressure on Iran. At a security conference in the Persian Gulf Kingdom of Bahrain today, Gates said Iran must vow not to develop nuclear weapons and to open up its facilities for inspection. A recent intelligence report said Iran suspended its nuclear weapons program four years ago. But Gates says Iran's leaders could decide to restart the program
at a moment's notice.

A no-go for the Space Shuttle Atlantis today, the planned launch has been put off until tomorrow
at the earliest while engineers look for a problem with fuel tank sensors. They will meet within the next few hours to decide if they need to push the launch back even further.

And those are the headlines this hour. For more on these stories and other news of the day, CNN is your source online, on TV or when you're on the go.
