The death of a senator, the deadly collapse of a building in Philadelphia and the trial of an alleged leaker of classified information are just a few of the stories that drew national attention this week. The death of a senator, the deadly collapse of a building in Philadelphia and the trial of an alleged leaker of classified information are just a few of the stories that drew national attention this week.

(RNN) - A building in Philadelphia collapsed Wednesday, killing six and injuring 14 others.

The building was reportedly being demolished when it collapsed onto a thrift store located on the same block. A fire station was a block away, allowing for a quick response time.

Tropical Storm Andrea made landfall in western Florida, bringing rain and strong winds. It is projected to move along the East Coast.

Sen. Frank Lautenberg, D-NJ, died Monday. The 89-year-old senator was the last surviving World War II veteran in the Senate. Republican New Jersey Gov. Chris Christie called for a special election in October to officially fill the vacancy. He also appointed New Jersey Attorney General Jeff Chiesa, a Republican, as interim senator until the election.

After being arrested two years ago, Army Pfc. Bradley Manning is in court. Manning is accused of leaking classified information to the whistle-blowing website WikiLeaks.
