Philly Neighborhood Shut Down

From member station WHYY Mhari Saito reports that the city of Philadelphia is trying to shut down a neighborhood once associated with the radical separatist group MOVE. Fifteen years ago, dozens of homes were unintentionally destroyed when police dropped an incendiary device on a neighborhood house in an attempt to end a stand-off. The city rebuilt the homes, but now says they are unsafe.
