A counterterrorism institute formed after the 1995 Oklahoma City bombing is changing locations.
Officials say the Memorial Institute for the Prevention of Terrorism is moving to Rose State College in Midwest City. The institute is now located in the same building as the Oklahoma City National Memorial & Museum, which honors the victims of the bombing at the Alfred P. Murrah Federal Building.
A press conference is planned for Thursday afternoon on the college campus in Midwest City.
Search and rescue dogs were prominent in the aftermath of the Murrah Federal Building bombing in Oklahoma City. But one rescuer came away with a drive to help make sure there were more dogs available for the important work.
A sign reading "Flying With Angels Krystle Campbell," is seen Monday as a passing MBTA bus with "Boston Strong" displayed on its message board drives through Medford, Mass. A funeral service for Campbell, one of the three people killed in the marathon bombings, was held later in the day.

The surviving suspect in the Boston Marathon bombings was charged Monday with using a weapon of mass destruction to kill three people and wound more than 200 in what FBI investigators said evidence shows was a coldly calculated attack.
While the nation’s attention is focused on the unfolding events following Monday’s explosions at the Boston Marathon, Oklahoma City bombing survivors, victims’ family members and others gathered Friday morning for the annual remembrance of that disaster.
After 18 years, the service follows a routine: bag pipes, one second of silence for each of the 168 people who died, a few comments, and then the reading of the names of those killed in the blast.
Hans and Torrey Butzer, along with their partner Sven Berg, designed the Outdoor Symbolic Portion of the memorial while living in Berlin in 1997. As Americans living in Germany, Hans Butzer says that blended environment guided their artistic vision for the project.
