10 Things to Know for Thursday

Your daily look at late-breaking news, upcoming events and the stories that will be talked about today, Feb. 27:

2. YANUKOVYCH SURFACES IN MOSCOW

A Russian official says the fugitive Ukraine president has asked for — and received — protection.

3. POLICE HAMPERED BY COMMUNICATIONS SLIP

4. ARIZONA GOVERNOR VETOES RELIGIOUS FREEDOM BILL

She says the bill, which would have granted people the right to refuse service to gays, is divisive and could result in unintended negative consequences.

Hundreds march in the streets in the western city of Culiacan, demanding that Mexican authorities free the boss of the powerful Sinaloa drug cartel, who they say provides jobs for the poor.
