    Welcome to CNN Radio News Day.

    Here are some of the stories we cover in today's edition:

    Violent protests continued today against a now infamous anti-Muslim film. 15 people were killed in Pakistan even as an increasing number of Muslim leaders called on their fellow believers to quell the violence. In Iran, a little known organization raised the bounty on the head of author Salman Rushdie, whose 1989 novel 'Satanic Verses' was condemned as blasphemous to Islam: Rushdie told CNN:

    [3:55] "What we saw was not so much a spontaneous outpouring of rage as a very carefully manufactured outpouring."

    Both presidential candidates were on the campaign trail today. President Obama addressed Seniors at the AARP national convention in New Orleans live on a video stream, while at another campaign event in Virginia. He promised Obamacare will not threaten Medicare despite claims to the contrary from Republicans.

    [7:45] "...I want to emphasize Medicare and Social Security are not handouts. You've paid into these programs your whole life. You've earned them" said the president.

    Mitt Romney campaigned in Las Vegas today, while his running mate, Paul Ryan was in New Orleans, in person, addressing the AARP. He even brought along his 78-year-old mother for support as he countered Obama's message:

    [8:11] "The first step to a stronger Medicare is to repeal Obamacare because it represents the worst of both worlds." said Ryan to a mixed response from the crowd.

    And, tech industry watchers say up to 10 million iPhones could be sold this weekend - the first weekend the iPhone 5 is available. But, whether its an iPhone or another mobile device you're after the rapid advancement of mobile technology may actually be changing your buying habits.

    [12:25] "I normally replace every year. I have to - everything. Sometimes twice a year ..." says 31-year-old Raymond Fulton who talked to CNN's Edgar Treiguts about his tech buying habits.
