Delayed response

A leading Kenyan newspaper says police waited seven hours before sending a special tactical unit into Garissa college to fight the al-Shabaab gunmen who killed 148 people on Thursday. As Debora Patta reports, for the families of the slain students, grief is rapidly turning to anger over the slow response.

CEOs and the law

No group seemed to play a bigger role in convincing Indiana lawmakers to alter their "religious freedom" law than the business leaders who went public with their feelings. Between Apple CEO Tim Cook's op-ed decrying the law and the Indianapolis-based Angie's List putting a $40 million expansion on hold, the swift and stern reaction of the business community grabbed lawmakers' attention.

Infectious disease doctor

From AIDS to the current Ebola outbreak, when infectious disease strikes, the doctor -- Dr. Anthony Fauci, of the National Institutes of Health -- is in. Our new contributor, Scott Simon of NPR, pays Dr. Fauci a visit for some questions and answers about the most urgent public health matters facing our nation.

Securing the homeland

The man running the Department of Homeland Security, Jeh Johnson, has a lot on his shoulders as he tries to protect the country from another terrorist attack -- especially with the rise of homegrown terrorism. In a wide-ranging interview, Johnson tells "60 Minutes" correspondent Lesley Stahl about embracing "the worst job in Washington," and protecting the nation against the newest threat.

Gerry Adams on "responsibility"

Now the leader of a political party called Sinn Fein, Gerry Adams was also a central figure in Ireland's bloody civil war. Now, just as the truce was beginning to look bulletproof, a Boston College project threatens both Adams and the peace he helped create. Scott Pelley asks Adams point-blank if, after all the killing, his "hands are clean?"

"True Story"

In 2002, police in Mexico arrested an Oregon man for the murder of his wife and three kids. The fugitive's real name was Christian Longo, but after his capture, he claimed to be New York Times writer Michael Finkel. The two are the inspiration for Jonah Hill and James Franco's new movie, "True Story," which opens next week. Gayle King reports.

Drought on the farm

With California's historic drought, the governor is not backing down from his mandatory water cutbacks. But as Ben Tracy reports, the state's $46 billion farming industry, which sucks up about 80 percent of California's usable water supply, is getting a pass -- for now.

Islam's divide

Reports on the conflicts playing out across the Middle East often refer to fighting between Sunnis and Shiites, the two main sects of Islam. But many have no idea what the difference between the two groups is, and why there is so much friction between them. Clarissa Ward looks at some of the history and geopolitics at play in the Muslim world to get a sense of what's really going on.

Yogic renaissance

India's Prime Minister, Narendra Modi, is on a campaign to revitalize yoga in the land where it was born. He's starting with his soldiers, who use yoga to improve mind and body control. But can Indian yoga translate in America? Major Garrett tries to find out.

Weakest link

When it comes to computer security, the problems most companies experience can be traced to the biological units that interface with their systems, otherwise known as humans. A study released Friday by the IT trade association CompTIA found that human error was the root cause of 52 percent of all network security breaches.
