Donald Trump used a Monday afternoon speech in Roanoke, Va., to torch a wide range of leading Democrats, including many who were getting ready for the first big day of the Democratic National Convention on Monday night. The Republican nominee started off this speech with an attack on Rep. Debbie Wasserman Schultz, D-Fla., who announced on Sunday that she would resign her position as chair of the Democratic National Committee. Wasserman Schultz’s announcement came after a damaging email leak revealed her organization had worked against Sen. Bernie Sanders’ campaign during the Democratic primary.
Bangladesh police Monday arrested a spinning mill worker for allegedly torturing a nine-year-old boy to death with an air compressor, the second such incident in less than a year, officers said. Sagar Barman died of internal injuries in a Dhaka hospital late on Sunday after his family alleges eight workers were involved in forcing the compressor into the boy's rectum and turning on the machine. The boy also worked at the Zubaida Textile Mills in Rupganj town, just south of the capital, one of millions of child labourers in impoverished Bangladesh, many employed in hazardous industries.
What began as a brush fire last Friday rapidly morphed into a raging blaze over the weekend, burning more than 33,000 acres and destroying at least 18 homes in Los Angeles County. Only about 10 percent of the wildfire was contained by Sunday night, the Los Angeles County Fire Department reported. “All the experience we’ve had with fires is out the window,” John Tripp, the county’s deputy fire chief, told the Associated Press.
In court papers, lawyers for the student, Gavin Grimm, urged the Supreme Court to leave in place a lower court's order in favor of Grimm while the litigation goes on. The case is the first time the fight over transgender bathroom rights has reached the Supreme Court. Last year, the American Civil Liberties Union (ACLU) sued on behalf of Grimm to challenge the Gloucester County School Board's bathroom policy, which requires transgender students to use alternative restroom facilities.
A 27-year-old Syrian man denied asylum in Germany a year ago blew himself up on Sunday outside a crowded music festival, injuring 15 people in the country’s fourth violent attack on members of the public in less than a week. A spokeswoman for the Bavarian state police force said on Monday it was unclear whether the man was an Islamist militant, and that investigations were continuing. More than a million migrants have entered Germany over the past year, many fleeing war in Afghanistan, Syria and Iraq.
Malaysian police have dismissed media reports that say missing Malaysia Airlines Flight 370 was deliberately steered into the sea by a pilot intent on mass murder suicide. On Friday, New York magazine published an article based upon what it claims is a leaked investigation document, allegedly showing Captain Zaharie Ahmad Shah had “conducted a simulated flight deep into the remote southern Indian Ocean” on his home flight simulator less than a month before MH370 vanished. The route and destination of the simulated flight was similar to the route investigators believe the plane took.

As Seattle's minimum wage rises toward $15 an hour, research from the University of Washington suggests that the city has not seen the major business closures and job losses that opponents of the increase predicted, nor has it seen a significant improvement in the lives of workers that proponents envisioned. As one of the first major cities to pass a $15 minimum wage ordinance, Seattle has been something of a test case for other communities considering measures to boost wages for low-income workers. Business owners have cautioned that forcing employers to increase minimum wages too quickly could actually have the opposite effect, by forcing businesses to reduce worker hours or scale back hiring.
The hack of the Democratic National Committee’s email servers and the subsequent leak of embarrassing internal documents appear almost certainly to have been carried out by Russian intelligence agencies, making it the most serious case yet of Kremlin interference in U.S. politics. The confirmation — long suspected by many in the Bernie Sanders camp — that at least some DNC officials were on Team Hillary over the course of the Democratic primary has divided the party on the verge of its nominating convention and alienated Sanders’s base. If it hasn’t convinced them to back Donald Trump, it’s at least given them second thoughts about voting for Clinton.
Two youths were killed and 20 people injured early Monday in a shooting outside a Florida nightclub as parents were picking up their children from a "teen night" event. Police in Fort Myers, Florida identified the dead as 14-year-old Sean Archilles and 18-year-old Stefan Strawder, described by local media as a star high school basketball player. "We have three persons of interest in custody and we are still looking for others," interim Fort Myers Police Chief Dennis Eads told a news conference.
A forest fire burning near Big Sur on California's scenic Central Coast has destroyed six homes. State fire officials said the half-dozen homes that burned Sunday were the first since the blaze broke out on Friday. The blaze erupted Friday in almost inaccessible terrain 5 miles south of Garrapata State Park.
The parachute from the Kansas woman, who had already completed five jumps on Sunday as she worked to become an instructor, was found in a tree after her sixth jump that day, TV broadcasters KOCO and KFOR reported from the search site, about 60 miles northeast of Oklahoma City.
The U.S. military denied reports Monday that Islamic State militants had downed a warplane in Iraq's Anbar province. The terrorist group also known as ISIS claimed it killed all U.S. crewmembers abroad the plane. The plane was allegedly operating near
Archaeologist Arnoldo Gonzalez said researchers believe the tomb and pyramid were purposely built atop a spring between AD 683 and 702. Attention has focused on the heavily carved stone sarcophagus in which Pakal was buried, and which some erroneously believe depict the Maya ruler seated at the controls of a spaceship. The director of archaeology for the National Institute of Anthropology and History, Pedro Sanchez Nava, said the theory makes sense in light of other pre-Hispanic peoples, such as those who lived at Teotihuacan, near Mexico City, where another water tunnel was found.
Earlier today, ministers from the three nations responsible for finding Malaysia Airlines Flight 370-Australia, China, and Malaysia-announced that they would stop looking for the lost jet once the current 46,000-square-mile search zone is completed this fall.

The 2017 Ford F-150 Raptor is very high on our list of future vehicles we're excited to drive, and it's probably on yours too. Everyone loved the big, goofy, angry last-generation Raptor, and this one appears to be even more ridiculous. It'll also be rather affordable, if this pricing document just discovered on Ford's fleet sales website can be believed.

Pakistani police are investigating after a British man claimed his wife had been murdered in a so-called "honour" killing, ten days after the death of a social media star cast a spotlight on the practice. Mukhtar Kazam registered a complaint with police in Punjab province claiming his wife, 28-year-old Samia Shahid, was murdered in her family's village while visiting them. The couple, both British-Pakistani dual citizens, had been married for two years and were living in Dubai, police told AFP, adding that it was Shahid's second marriage.
The Rev. Tim LaHaye, co-author of the "Left Behind" series, a multimillion-selling literary juggernaut that brought end-times prophecy into mainstream bookstores, died Monday. LaHaye died in a San Diego, California, hospital, days after having suffered a stroke, according to his publicist Johnnie Moore. Co-authored with Jerry B. Jenkins, the 16-volume "Left Behind" series of novels published by Tyndale House Publishers sold more than 80 million copies worldwide, Moore said, and popularized a Bible interpretation that said born-again Christians will be instantly taken to God in the Rapture, while those left behind on earth endure seven years of tribulation.

By Dustin Volz and Karen Freifeld WASHINGTON/NEW YORK (Reuters) - The White House on Tuesday issued the U.S. government's first emergency response manual for a major cyber attack, though some officials acknowledged it lacked clear guidance on possible retaliation against hacker adversaries. The Obama administration, which created a federal cyber chief position in February that has not yet been filled, published a "presidential policy directive" that includes a five-level grading system. No hack attack so far has hit level five, a source familiar with the policy discussions said.
There are lots of changes happening around Oklahoma City now that Kevin Durant has left town for sunnier shores. A local restaurant named after the longtime OKC star is reportedly shutting its doors temporarily for a now-sorely-needed branding overhaul. “It has been an honor — and a lot of fun — to partner with Kevin at KD’s these last few years,” Hal Smith said in a statement.
