• Greg Mortenson, the once-acclaimed author of “Three Cups of Tea,” has agreed to reimburse his Central Asia Institute charity more than $1 million, under a settlement with the Montana Attorney General’s office.

Mortenson was removed as CAI’s executive director last fall, but he can stay on as an employee.
