The Iraqi military will use a medieval tactic to keep control of Fallujah after recapturing it from the Islamic State group last month: It is digging a trench around the city. The trench will have a single opening for residents to move in and out of the city, which is virtually empty since the offensive that defeated the IS militants, said Lt. Gen. Abdul-Wahab al-Saadi, deputy commander of the counterterrorism forces that led the successful campaign. It will be about 7 miles (11 kilometers) long and "will protect the city's residents, who have lived through many tragedies, as well as security forces deployed there," al-Saadi said in an interview with The Associated Press at his Baghdad headquarters.

By Krystain Orlinski ACTON, Calif. (Reuters) - Thousands of California residents were allowed to return home on Monday after a deadly, destructive wildfire forced them from their houses in recent days as it raged through drought-parched canyons and foothills north of Los Angeles. The so-called Soberanes Fire, burning in the Los Padres National Forest in Monterey County, threatened 1,650 structures by Monday evening and was only 10 percent contained, the U.S. Forest Service said. Near Los Angeles, a beefed-up force of nearly 3,000 firefighters battled to outflank the blaze there - known as the Sand Fire - which has charred at least 50 square miles (130 square km) on the rugged northwestern fringes of the Angeles National Forest, authorities said.
What seemed to merely be a confirmation that the DNC — run by Debbie Wasserman Schultz before she resigned on Sunday — had it out for Bernie Sanders, has turned into a full-blown investigation into whether Russia was behind the email hack and subsequent leak, all to help Donald Trump win the U.S. presidential election. Now the FBI has gotten involved in this latest election mess and strongly suspects that Russia is responsible. According to the Daily Beast, officials with knowledge of the investigation say that the FBI suspects this because of the timing of the leak, because of Trump’s own connections to Russia and President Vladimir Putin and because the emails were then given to Wikileaks, which has an anti-U.S. government bent.
