Today in history

Today is Friday, Dec. 28, the 363rd day of 2012. There are three days left in the year.

On this date in the SCV: On this day in 2011, two Canyon Country men were arrested for assault with a deadly weapon in Canyon Country after allegedly beating a man who had come to the aid of one of their girlfriends. One of the assailants had reportedly put his girlfriend in a headlock during an argument, before a man tried to come to her aid but was beaten.

Today’s Highlight in History: On Dec. 28, 1912, San Francisco’s Municipal Railway began operations with Mayor James Rolph Jr. at the controls of Streetcar No. 1 as 50,000 spectators looked on.

Ten years ago: The U.N. nuclear watchdog decided to pull its inspectors out of North Korea by New Year’s Eve, a step demanded by the North.

Five years ago: President George W. Bush used a “pocket veto” to reject a sweeping defense bill because he objected to a provision that would have exposed the Iraqi government to expensive lawsuits seeking damages from the Saddam Hussein era. Pakistani opposition leader Benazir Bhutto was laid to rest as the country’s army tried to quell a frenzy of rioting in the wake of her assassination.

One year ago: North Korea’s new leader, Kim Jong Un, escorted his father’s hearse in an elaborate state funeral, bowing somberly and saluting in front of tens of thousands of citizens who wailed and stamped their feet in grief for Kim Jong Il. Turkish warplanes mistakenly killed 35 smugglers and other villagers in an operation targeting Kurdish rebels in Iraq. Kaye Stevens, a singer and actress who performed with the Rat Pack and was a frequent guest on Johnny Carson’s “The Tonight Show,” died in The Villages, Fla., at age 79.
