Federal Communications Commission Chairman Ajit Pai is facing backlash online after the government agency voted Thursday to repeal landmark Obama-era rules that were designed to ensuring a free and open internet, setting up a court fight over a move that could recast the digital landscape. The plan had not been popular leading up to the vote, with at least one poll from the University of Maryland finding more than 80 percent of respondents opposed the proposed repeal of net neutrality rules ahead of the vote. Commission Chairman Pai, who voted in favor of the rollback, had specifically received harsh criticism from some online communities in the weeks leading up to Thursday's meeting, but the backlash took an especially dark turn after the vote, as various Twitter users began chastising him, with many even calling for the chairman to "kill" himself.
The Trump administration accused Iran of violating United Nations resolutions, unveiling what officials said was proof that Iran is exporting missiles and other military hardware to a rebel group in Yemen.
The U.S. ambassador to the United Nations, Nikki Haley, stood before missile remnants that she claimed were covered in Iranian “fingerprints” on Thursday while laying out what she called “irrefutable evidence” that Tehran has violated its international obligations by militarily supporting rebels in Yemen. The missile was reportedly launched at Saudi Arabia last month from an area of Yemen that is controlled by Houthi rebels, an Iranian-backed Shiite group that took control of large swathes of Yemen in 2014. Haley accused Iran of supplying the weaponry, and in doing so, defying a U.N. resolution that endorsed the Iran nuclear deal.

Now prosecutors are looking into whether McCray was copying what she could have read involving Davis' death or if she hung herself in a tragic case of playacting.

Women in Ohio would be prohibited from receiving abortions because of a fetal Down syndrome diagnosis under a bill that passed the state senate on Wednesday and is heading to Republican Governor John Kasich’s desk. Lawmakers voted 20-12 in favor of the law, which criminalizes abortion if the physician has knowledge that the procedure is being sought due to a diagnosis of Down syndrome, a genetic disorder caused when abnormal cell division results in an extra full or partial copy of chromosome 21. Doctors would lose their medical licenses in the state and face a fourth-degree felony charge under the law if they were to perform an abortion with that knowledge.
