Today's Highlights in History:

Ford Motor Co. unveiled its new Mustang model at the New York World's Fair, five days before the fair's official opening. The first game was played at New York's Shea Stadium; the Pittsburgh Pirates defeated the Mets, 4-3.

en years ago: Searchers found the body of missing North Dakota college student Dru Sjodin (droo shoh-DEEN'). (Alfonso Rodriguez Jr. is under federal sentence of death for kidnapping and killing Sjodin.) Israel assassinated Hamas leader Abdel Aziz Rantisi (AHB'-duhl ah-ZEEZ' rahn-TEE'-see) with a missile strike on his car.

Five years ago: A day after U.N. inspectors left North Korea, U.S. experts monitoring the communist country's nuclear program also departed after Pyongyang expelled them and threatened to restart its reactor in anger over U.N. criticism of its recent rocket launch. Richard Phillips, the cargo ship captain rescued by Navy snipers from the clutches of Somali pirates, made a triumphant return to his home state of Vermont, insisting, "I'm not a hero, the military is."

One year ago: Fifteen people were killed by a fertilizer plant explosion in West, Texas. Sports returned to Boston two days after the deadly Marathon bombing as the Buffalo Sabres defeated the Bruins in a 3-2 shootout (players on both teams wore "Boston Strong" decals on their helmets). Senate Republicans backed by a small band of rural-state Democrats scuttled the most far-reaching gun control legislation in two decades. Senate Finance Committee Chairman Max Baucus, D-Mont., who'd helped write President Barack Obama's health care law, stunned administration officials during a budget hearing by saying he thought it was headed for a "train wreck" because of bumbling implementation. A Mississippi man was arrested, accused of sending letters to President Barack Obama and a senator that tested positive for poisonous ricin (however, charges against Paul Kevin Curtis were later dropped and leveled against James Everett Dutschke (DUHS'-kee) instead; prosecutors said Dutschke, who ended up pleading guilty to sending the letters, had tried to frame Curtis).

Five years ago: Some 100,000 Poles filled Warsaw's biggest public square, joining together for a memorial and funeral Mass for the 96 people killed in a plane crash a week earlier.

Pope Benedict XVI began a pilgrimage in Malta, a Catholic nation buffeted by the worldwide clerical sex abuse scandal. Ubaldo Jimenez pitched the first no-hitter in the Colorado Rockies' 18-year history, dominating the Atlanta Braves in a 4-0 victory.
