Suspect Jared Loughner charged

Suspect Jared Loughner charged - US authorities have charged a 22-year-old man over Saturday's Arizona shooting in which a congresswoman was seriously wounded and six people died.

Federal prosecutors charged Jared Loughner with trying to assassinate Gabrielle Giffords, 40, and killing two other government officials.
Mr Loughner, who is due to appear in court, could face the death penalty.
Ms Giffords is in a critical condition after being shot in the head at a public meeting in Tucson.
She had been holding an open-invitation meeting with constituents outside a supermarket when a man holding a gun approached and opened fire.
She was shot from close range by the gunman, who then began shooting into the crowd.
Among the dead were a nine-year-old girl and a federal judge. A total of 14 people were injured, in addition to the six who were killed.
