Provincial authorities in northern China said Sunday that they have suspended four local officials for inadequately responding to floods over the past week that killed 114 people and left 111 others missing. The Hebei provincial government said on its official microblog account that it was suspending the head of a development zone in the city of Xingtai, the chief engineer of a city transport bureau and two other bureaucrats. The move comes as China's government has been fighting massive flooding this summer that has also threatened embankments along rivers in central China, with authorities mobilizing troops and heavy equipment to fill the gaps.

The 18-year-old man who killed nine people near a Munich shopping mall Friday before taking his own life was obsessed with mass shootings, spent his days playing violent video games, and had been bullied at school. The attack is the latest in a string of deadly assaults to rock Europe in just over a week’s time. The German-born shooter in Munich — identified by German media as Ali David Sonboly – was a son of Iranian parents who fled to Europe in the 1980s, who he lived with in an apartment in the city.
It has now been over two years of theories, false leads, heartbreak, and investigation since the Malaysian Airlines flight 370 mysteriously vanished off the radar during a routine flight from Kuala Lumpur to Beijing with 239 passengers and crew aboard. The March 2014 disappearance kicked off a multinational search effort, which initially ranged from China southward toward Australia. As the hope of finding survivors waned, the importance of locating the aircraft and finding answers to what, or who, was responsible for the disappearance waxed.

Hillary Clinton announced Friday that she has picked Sen. Tim Kaine of Virginia as her running mate, making a safe, centrist choice that will likely disappoint some in the progressive wing of her party. “I’m thrilled to tell you this first: I’ve chosen Sen. Tim Kaine as my running mate,” Clinton wrote in a text message to her supporters Friday night. In a later email, she said she chose Kaine because she was confident he could step in and be president at a “moment’s notice” and because he is beloved by his staff and Senate colleagues.

By Lila Hassan CAIRO (Reuters) - An aircraft powered by solar energy left Egypt on Sunday on the last leg of the first ever fuel-free flight around the globe. Solar Impulse 2, a spindly single-seat plane, took off from Cairo in darkness en route to Abu Dhabi, its final destination, with a flight expected to take between 48 and 72 hours.

Authorities say new tests show there is no evidence of a marijuana chemical in a Colorado community's tap water and they believe the initial tests were false. Lincoln County sheriff's Capt. Michael Yowell said Saturday that there is evidence that a shed covering a city well was tampered with and that investigation is continuing. Bottled water was distributed to residents of the town after officials said Thursday that some field tests had found THC, marijuana's psychoactive ingredient, in the water, and more tests were ordered.
Anger erupted on Saturday over floods in northern China that left more than 200 people dead or missing, with media and internet users accusing officials of negligence. Torrential rain has lashed the north this week, and a flashflood near the town of Xingtai in Hebei province, which left at least 23 dead and 13 missing, has become a focus of the public's dissatisfaction with the government's response to the disaster. Angry villagers have blamed local officials for failing to warn them of the impending deluge, with Hebei Satellite TV showing one resident saying water had reached chest-level before an alarm was raised.
Virginia’s state Supreme Court ruled Friday that Gov. Terry McAuliffe’s executive order restoring the voting rights of more than 200,000 ex-felons violated the state’s constitution. The 4-3 decision follows the controversial executive order signed by McAuliffe in April, which granted voting rights to ex-offenders who had completed their prison sentence as well as their term of supervised probation or parole. “The assertion that a Virginia Governor has the power to grant blanket, group pardons is irreconcilable with the specific requirement in Article V, Section 12 that the Governor communicate to the General Assembly the ‘particulars of every case’ and state his ‘reasons’ for each pardon,” Chief Justice Donald Lemons wrote in the majority opinion.
On many days, traffic stretches for miles outside the busiest park entrance at West Yellowstone, Mont.

A few months ago, Apple was embroiled in a high-publicized legal battle with the FBI over mobile security. If you recall, the controversy began after Apple refused to create a custom version of iOS that would have enabled authorities to bypass the lockscreen on the iPhone used by one of the San Bernardino terrorists. Ultimately, the legal dispute fizzled out after the FBI managed to purchase software from a third-party that enabled it to bypass the lockscreen without Apple's assistance.
