Almost dead
Civil rights icon and US Democratic Rep. John Lewis of Georgia has been diagnosed with stage 4 pancreatic cancer, his office announced Sunday.
A leader of a civil rights group called Student Non-Violent Coordinating Committee, he was one of the participants in the key 1965 civil rights protest pushing for voting rights from Selma to Alabama's capital, Montgomery. Lewis -- who had his skull broken by white police officers during the march across the Edmund Pettus Bridge in Selma -- was, by his own count, arrested more than 40 times during his days of civil rights activism.
