Memory loss may not always be the first warning sign that dementia is brewing — changes in behavior or personality might be an early clue. Researchers on Sunday outlined a syndrome called "mild behavioral impairment" that may be a harbinger of Alzheimer's or other dementias, and proposed a checklist of symptoms to alert doctors and families. "Historically those symptoms have been written off as a psychiatric issue, or as just part of aging," said Dr. Zahinoor Ismail of the University of Calgary, who presented the checklist at the Alzheimer's Association International Conference in Toronto.

France's interior minister rejected on Sunday an assertion by a senior Nice security official that his staff tried to change a report into policing on the night of the Bastille Day attack that claimed 84 lives.

Interior Minister Bernard Cazeneuve said he would file a defamation lawsuit after the head of Nice's extensive video surveillance network said in a newspaper interview that someone from his staff had sought changes to her report.
