FORT HOOD, Texas (AP) -- The man accused of killing 13 people and wounding 29 at Fort Hood is able to talk, a hospital spokesman said Monday, but it's unknown when investigators might take advantage of his improving health to press forward with their probe into the shooting spree. Authorities say Maj. Nidal Malik Hasan fired off more than 100 rounds Thursday at a soldier processing center before civilian police shot him in the torso. He was taken into custody and eventually moved to an Army hospital in San Antonio, where he was in stable condition and able to talk, said Dewey Mitchell, a Brooke Army Medical Center spokesman.

HAGERSTOWN -- Dr. Abdul Waheed said the Koran, Islam's holy book, teaches this: "If you save one life, you save the entire human race. If you take a life, you kill the entire human race. " Thursday's mass shootings at the Fort Hood Army base in Texas -- allegedly by a Muslim U.S. soldier preparing to be deployed to a war zone -- violate the beliefs of Islam, Waheed said. "Islam does not condone the killing of innocent people," said Dr. Tanvir Pasha, the president of the Islamic Society of Western Maryland, which has a mosque near the eastern edge of Hagerstown.
