(FILES)Police patrol the front of a Walmart store as shoppers come and go amid heightened security in Paramount, California in this November 23, 2012 file photo. US retail giant Wal-Mart reported May 16, 2013 slightly higher quarterly earnings, but said sales at its US stores declined and pointed to difficulties controlling expenses internationally. Net income in the fiscal first quarter was $3.78 billion, up 1.1 percent from $3.74 billion in the 2012 February-April period. Net income per share rose 4.6 percent to $1.14, a penny below analyst expectations. Revenue also disappointed, rising 1.0 percent to $114.18 billion from $113.0 billion a year ago, missing the $116.42 billion estimate. AFP PHOTO / Frederic J. BROWN / FILES Foto: FREDERIC J. BROWN
