From NPR News in Washington, I'm Jack Speer.

Brazilian officials are confirming that floating debris
spotted earlier today in the water including what they say appears to be an airplane seat and an orange buoy are from missing Air France jetliner. Brazil's defense minister says a search
plane today found a three-mile-long band of wreckage floating in the Atlantic. The plane with 228 people aboard including two Americans went missing Sunday. It's believed the aircraft ran into a wall of thunderstorms. US military was joining in the search for signs of the plane which disappeared off the coast of Brazil on Sunday. According to the US Southern Command, a navy reconnaissance plane is taking off to help Brazilian military pilots in their search.

Supreme Court nominee Sonia Sotomayor sped through a series of private meetings today on Capitol Hill with key Democratic and Republican senators. One issue the senators are still debating is how soon to begin formal confirmation hearings. More from NPR's David Welna.

President Obama wants the Senate's consideration of Judge Sotomayor finished by early August. But after meeting with her, Jeff Sessions, the Judiciary Committee's top Republican asked why the rush.

"I am not prepared to say that we can get it done before August, and so I will be meeting with Senator Leahy tomorrow. He's been, er, very open about talking about it, now I look forward to talking with him. But there is quite a record here."  

Sessions pointed to the need to review more than 3,600 court cases Sotomayor's taken part in during 17 years on the federal bench as well as an unknown number of her unpublished opinions. Senate majority leader Harry Reid who also met with the judge said he too thought setting arbitrary deadlines for her confirmation could end up causing problems. David Welna, NPR News, the Capitol.

President Obama leaves tonight on a trip he hopes to use to redefine the US relationship with the Muslim world. NPR's Michele Kelemen has details.

President Obama begins this trip in Saudi Arabia where he is to meet King Abdullah to talk about energy, the Arabic-Israeli conflict and Iran, but the highlight is likely to be the second stop, Egypt, where he will make a much anticipated speech. White House spokesman Robert Gibbs said it will be about resetting relations with the Muslim world.

We don't expect that everything will change after one speech. I think it will take a sustained effort, and that's what the president is in for.”

President Obama has been promising the speech ever since the campaign and expectations are high that he'll offer some concrete ways to promote Middle East peace. Analysts say his choice of Cairo also puts pressure on the president to address concerns about human rights and democracy. Michele Kelemen, NPR News, Washington.

A closely watched pending home sales number for the month of April took a big bump-up, giving some reason for optimism: perhaps things in the housing market are turning around.  Index from the National Association of Realtors was up 6.7%, the biggest rise in almost eight years.

On Wall Street today, the Dow Jones Industrial Average gained 19 points. The NASDAQ was up eight points.

This is NPR.

A man has been identified as a Muslim convert has pleaded guilty in the shooting death of an army private at an Arkansas military recruiting center. Official say Abdul Hakim Muhammad has been ordered held without bail after he entered the plea in connection with the shooting death of Private William Long and the wounding of a second man. The incident took place yesterday at a military recruiting center in Little Rock. Law enforcement officials say an FBI-led terrorism task force had been investigating Muhammad since his return to the US from Yemen. No decision has yet been made on whether to file federal charges in the case.

South Korea media are reporting that North Korea is pushing ahead to test fire  more missiles while its leader reportedly
anointed his youngest son as heir to the country's 24 million people. From Seoul, Doualy Xaykaotha has more.

The Yonhap news agency and two major South Korean newspapers are reporting that North Korea's leader has chosen Kim Jong Un as the country's next leader. Scott Snyder with the Center for US-Korea Policy said the third son is designated.

"But at the same time, there is a structure that has been affirmed in the National Defense Commission that appears to be really playing a leading role and maybe what could be called a kind of collective leadership.”

He was speaking at a forum in Seoul on US and South Korean relations. Reportedly, Pyongyang is already calling the son "Commander Kim" in a new song lauding the 26-year-old. For NPR News, I'm Doualy Xaykaotha in Seoul.

From NPR News in Washington, I'm Jack Speer.

Brazil's Defense Minister is saying that the debris found today floating in the waters of the Atlantic is definitely from the missing Air France jet. The minister says Brazilian military planes today discovered a large debris field, which would seem to confirm the plane with 228 people on board crashed into the sea. Reporter Gary Duffy of the BBC is in São Paulo.

The Brazilian authorities were reporting earlier today it's spotted a small metal wreckage that looked like a plane seat, an orange buoy, some drums, and some oil and kerosene in the water. And they weren't able to say with certainty that this was from the plane. But they are now saying, their Defense Minister Nelson Jobim, that there is a line of wreckage of about 5 kilometers long and the minister is essentially saying there is no way that the sea could have gathered such a large amount of material. There must be no doubt that this was a debirs from the missing plane. So his words, I think, will come as a grim confirmation of the worst really for the families waiting for news both in Paris and in Rio De Janeiro. The BBC's Gary Duffy.

President Obama's Supreme Court nominee faced questions about her views on abortion and other issues as she met today with key senators on Capitol Hill. The Senate's top Democrat praised Sonia Sotomayor as a well-qualified nominee, Senator Harry Reid calling her life story compelling and saying he thinks she is well qualified for the job.

"It's the first time that I had the option to sit down and talk to her. And I came away absolutely convinced that she made clear in the meeting that she is a person who is going to be a fantasitc, superb Supreme Court justice. "

Senate Judiciary Chair Patrick Leahy asked Sotomayor about controversial comments she is set to have made about her experiences as, say, "a wise Latina". Leahy says Sotomayor responded by saying people's life experiences may shape who they are, but as a judge, you follow the law. Leahy said he wants confirmation hearings to begin next month.

The National Association of Realtors has issued an upbeat report, showing pending home sales up for a third month in a row. NPR' s Cheryl Corle has more.

The report on pending home sales is a precursor, it's an index of how many contracts have been signed by homes but aren't yet done deals. A number of factors can affect whether the sale is finalized. But in April, the index rose nearly 7% from the March reading to 90.3, pushed in part by low interest rates and an eight thousand dollar tax credit for first-time home buyers.  Pending sales were greatest in the northeast, followed by the midwest, and then the west. The south showed a slight decline. The chief economist for the National Association of Realtors says while the total number of existing home sales is expected to improve, there wll be sharp local variations. Even so the increase in the pending sales index for April is the highest monthly gain in seven years.  Cheryl Corle, NPR News.

On Wall Street today, the Dow Jones Industrial Average closed up 19 points today; the S&P 500 was up a point.
