    BEIRUT (AP) — Lebanon’s justice minister resigns in protest after deadly blast, the third minister to quit. Copyright © 2020 The Associated Press. All rights reserved. This material may not be published, broadcast, written or redistributed.
    Former Los Angeles Angels employee Eric Kay has been charged by federal authorities for distributing fentanyl in connection with the overdose of pitcher Tyler Skaggs, who died in a Southlake, Texas hotel room on July 1 last year.  Kay was charged with illegal possession with intent to distribute Fentanyl. If convicted, he could face up to 20 years in prison. He made his first appearance in federal court on Friday after his arrest in nearby Fort Worth, Texas.    An autopsy revealed fentanyl, oxycodone and alcohol in the 27-year-old Skaggs's system. It has since been determined that Skaggs would have survived, were it not for the fentanyl, according to the US Attorney's Office for the Northern District of Texas. Kay, who was the team's communications director from 2013 until November 2019, has since confessed to giving the opioids to the pitcher, adding that the team was aware of the pitcher's drug use. The team has denied...
    Several thousand people took to the streets in Beirut for what is being called a "day of judgment" for Lebanon's leaders to take responsibility for the massive explosions on Tuesday that killed at least 158 people. Lebanon's Red Cross said more than 100 people were injured in Saturday's demonstrations and BBC News reported that dozens entered a foreign ministry. Riot police fired tear gas on demonstrators who tried to break through the barriers in front of the Parliament building and there were reports of shots fired. A Lebanese police spokesman told Reuters that a policeman died in the clashes.  The demonstrations are being held after the Lebanese government on Friday refused to allow for an independent international investigation into the cause of the explosion. The Lebanese government has vowed to find those responsible for the blast, which they say was caused by 2,700 tons of ammonium nitrate that was seized...

    Agriculture officials have captured their first Asian giant hornet this month in Washington State - but are in a race against the clock to find the rest before mating season starts. The Washington State Department of Agriculture revealed in a press release that state's first Asian giant hornet, nicknamed 'murder hornet', was trapped on July 14.  Officials set up bottle trap near Birch Bay in Whatcom County and, following a review at WSDA's entomology lab, confirmed the hornet's species on July 29. This is the first hornet detected in a set trap, rather than found in the environment like the last five confirmed sightings in Washington. 'This is encouraging because it means we know that the traps work,' Sven Spichiger, managing entomologist for the department. said in the press release.  'But it also means we have work to do.' The Washington Department of Agriculture announced that officials captured their first...
    The first thing to understand about Donald Trump’s threat to delay the November election — should we call it a public fantasy? — is that it’s a distraction, like so many things our president says and does. Around 8:30 Eastern time on Thursday morning, news came down that the U.S. economy saw its worst contraction since the advent of modern economic recordkeeping after World War II, with GDP falling at an annual rate of nearly 33% in the second quarter, 9.5% below where it was the previous quarter. This is a plunge exponentially larger than the fallout from the crash of 2008, and probably the largest since the Great Depression of the 1930s. At 8:46 a.m., Trump let loose with this Twitter turd: “With Universal Mail-In Voting (not Absentee Voting, which is good), 2020 will be the most INACCURATE & FRAUDULENT Election in history. It will be a great embarrassment to the USA. Delay the Election until...
    (CNN)The story from our colleague was familiar: He watched as Makaite, Tefu and the other men of the Andilukbo clan of Efe bow hunters returned empty handed. It was the third day in a row that they had gone hunting for forest antelope and not caught anything. A leaf bag filled with mushrooms and two giant tree snails was all that seven men had to show for over 200 person-hours of grueling work. Robert MwinyihaliIn the dense tropical forest near Wamba in northeastern Democratic Republic of Congo, Makaite has watched as outsiders strip his traditional lands of wildlife to supply a long-distance market for bushmeat that sees it transported 250 miles by road to Kisangani, and at times, a further 950 miles downriver to the capital Kinshasa.

    A priest went against the advice of the church and accused the governor of the central Mexican state of Guanajuato for providing military rifles to one of the country's most deadliest criminal organizations. Father Alfredo Gallegos made the shocking allegations against Diego Sinhué  Rodríguez while he celebrated an outdoors mass in Chucándiro, a town in the western state of Michoacán last Thursday.

    Newly-released audio recordings from the investigation into the fatal shooting of Breonna Taylor reveal Louisville Police officers arrived at her home with battering rams despite it being considered a 'soft target' and cops admitting they did not 'anticipate a threat.' Police interviews with Sergeant John Mattingly, who led the late-night raid on March 13, and Taylor's boyfriend Kenneth Walker, who was at the home during the shooting, were obtained by NBC News and have shed new light on the moments leading up to her death. Taylor, a 26-year-old EMT, was shot eight times after officers barged into her home while operating on a no-knock warrant during a drug investigation. Walker was later charged for attempted murder for firing his licensed gun at officers after he mistook them for intruders.  None of the police officers have been charged in Taylor's death, and new audio recordings reveal Sgt Jason Vance, who conducted...

    A small change to a variant of the novel coronavirus has helped it better copy itself but make it more deadly, a new study suggests. Researchers found there were two strains of the virus circulating when it reached the US: the original D614 and a mutation, G614.  This mutation is not a deadlier version of the coronavirus but it does help the virus copy itself better, which results in a higher viral load in patients.  Researchers found the most dominant strain of the virus by mid-March was a mutation of the original variant called G614 (right, in blue), not the original virus D614 (left, in green) The G strain is not a deadlier version, but it allows the virus to copy itself more easily and create higher viral loads in patients.

    When protesters first took over Seattle’s Capitol Hill district last month, supporters pitched it as something of socialist summer camp: movie nights under the stars, free food, a sidewalk library — and no cops. But the leaderless six-block zone — known as the CHAZ, or Capitol Hill Autonomous Zone, before it was renamed CHOP for Capitol Hill Occupation Protest — quickly spiraled into violence and chaos, culminating in a pair of shootings that killed two black teens. On Wednesday, Seattle Mayor Jenny Durkan finally issued an emergency order for police to take back the streets and clear out the protesters who had been camped out for nearly a month. It was a stunning reversal for Durkan — who originally compared the CHOP to a “block party atmosphere” and suggested the city could be in for a “summer of love.” The CHOP first emerged June 8 amid the raging nationwide protests...
    THE US Marine Corps is testing a powerful electroshock weapon that can zap enemies from 300 feet away. Dubbed "Specter", the non-lethal projectile can be fired from a shotgun and downs targets using a taser-like electric shock. 2Artist impression of a Spectre projectile (white) with its parachute deployed The weapon is the brainchild of Colorado-based tech research firm Harkind Dynamics and is part-funded by the US Department of Defense, New Scientist reports. The makers of Specter (Small arms Pulsed Electronic Tetanization at Extended Range) say it can be fired from any 12-gauge shotgun. It's designed to incapacitate targets rather than kill them, with a range of up to 330 feet (100 metres) – roughly the length of a football pitch. For comparison, the average range of a taser is roughly 25 feet (7.6 metres). 2The projectile works a bit like a long-range taser that can hit targets more than 300...

    OLYMPIA, Wash. (AP) — Attorney General Bob Ferguson said Tuesday his office will review at least 30 investigations of police use of deadly force to ensure they followed a new state law in the wake of the questionable handling of an investigation into the death of 33-year-old Manuel Ellis while in Tacoma police custody. Police in Washington state have used force in 2020 at least 30 times that resulted in death or serious injury to suspects, according to the attorney general’s office. Each incident was supposed to be investigated —independently, free of conflicts of interest and unnecessary secrecy about officers’ actions — under Initiative 940, a measure passed in 2018 that called for more public transparency and accountability to victims’ families. Ellis died March 3 after police encountered him in south Tacoma, allegedly bothering drivers by approaching their cars, The Seattle Times reported. The Pierce County Medical Examiner determined Ellis...
    Chinese troops reportedly used metal rods wrapped with barbed wire to kill 20 Indian soldiers during border skirmish United States Intelligence Services have claimed that despite denials from Chinese officials, the Middle Kingdom did in fact authorize a strike on Indian troops located in the disputed Himalayan border region between their two nations. According to The Hindustan Times, a U.S. intelligence report claimed that General Zhao Zongqi, head of the Western Theater Command, approved the strike “teach India a lesson.” The skirmish, which took place on June 15, claimed the lives of 20 Indian soldiers, in addition to wounding dozens more. Though China has not released details about its own casualties, leaked military reports have suggested that at least 35 troops were killed, including a commanding officer. The fact that sources are now claiming that the deadly incident was a planned attack goes against previous public statements of Chinese officials,...

There was mutual consensus to disengage.” Zhao denied apparent speculation by an Indian government minister that 40 Chinese troops had died in the June 15 clash. “I can tell you responsibly that it is false information," he...

    Two House Democrats from California are calling for a "full investigation" after an 18-year-old was shot and killed by police. Reps. Maxine Waters and Nanette Diaz said in a joint statement that California Attorney General Xavier Becerra should lead a probe into the death of Andres Guardado, who police say had an unregistered handgun and displayed it as they were chasing him Thursday evening in Gardena, California. "Another day, and another black or brown kid has been shot in the back by police. These killings must stop. We demand it. The American people demand it," the statement reads.

    A policeman involved in the killing of a black woman in the US state of Kentucky will be fired, city officials announced. Breonna Taylor, 26, was shot as she slept when officers entered her flat in Louisville on 13 March during a drugs investigation. Mayor Greg Fischer said Brett Hankison, one of three officers involved, will lose his badge. Ms Taylor's name has become a rallying cry at global anti-racism protests. The other officers have been placed on administrative leave amid an investigation. Mayor Fischer did not provide more details regarding the decision to fire Mr Hankison, citing a local law. "Unfortunately, due to a provision in state law that I very much would like to see changed, both the Chief and I are precluded from talking about what brought us to this moment, or even the timing of this decision," he said. Why Breonna Taylor's name is chanted at...
    The MMR jab used against measles, mumps and rubella could help protect against COVID-19 by boosting the immune system, lowering the risk of deadly symptoms. According to US experts, booster vaccinations should be given to vulnerable individuals — including hospital and care home workers — first, then the public. Research has indicated that it stops severe inflammation, or sepsis — without presenting any risk of side effects. The MMR jab used against measles, mumps and rubella can help protect against COVID-19 by boosting the immune system, lowering the risk of deadly symptoms (stock image) 'Vaccination with the MMR jab may be especially beneficial for health care workers who might easily be exposed to COVID-19,' said paper author and immunologist Paul Fidel of the Louisiana State University. 'Live attenuated vaccines seemingly have some non-specific benefits as well as immunity to the target pathogen,' Dr Fidel explained. 'A clinical trial...
    “As many of you know… a Taser is considered as a deadly weapon under Georgia law.” Those are the words of Fulton County District Attorney Paul Howard two weeks ago – before he announced murder charges Wednesday against the fired Atlanta police officer who shot and killed Rayshard Brooks on Friday during a confrontation outside a Wendy’s restaurant. Howard’s adamant pronouncement that a Taser is a deadly weapon came in an unrelated criminal case and was made in front of television cameras and microphones. His words will surely come back to haunt him as he attempts to prosecute former Officer Garrett Rolfe on 11 criminal charges including felony murder, which carries the death penalty. The law of self-defense in Georgia is clear: deadly force may be met with deadly force. In fact, deadly force can be used to defend against force that is likely to cause serious bodily injury.

    LOUISVILLE, Ky. (AP) - It’s the stuff of nightmares: Breonna Taylor and her boyfriend were in bed when a trio of armed men smashed through the front door. Gunfire erupted, killing the 26-year-old black woman. The three men turned out to be plainclothes police detectives, one of whom was wounded in the chaos and violence that March night. Taylor’s death led to protests and a review of how Louisville police use “no knock” search warrants, which allow officers to enter a home without announcing their presence, often in drug cases to prevent suspects from getting rid of a stash. Taylor’s name is one of those being chanted during nationwide protests decrying police killings of black people. The unrest began after the death of George Floyd, a black man who pleaded that he couldn’t breathe as a white Minneapolis police officer pinned him to the ground with a knee. TOP STORIES...
