It’s been a week since the mass shooting at Santa Fe High School in Texas, and the National Rifle Association has had time to make sense of why, exactly, this happened. Not once did the gun rights group raise concerns over the shooter’s easy access to firearms ― the 17-year-old student just used his dad’s guns ― or acknowledge that school shootings are now happening with such frequency in America that kids are developing post-traumatic stress disorder. The Texas shooting was the 16th school shooting this year.

The woman shot and killed by U.S. Border Patrol on Wednesday has been identified as Claudia Patricia Gómez Gonzáles, a 20-year-old who had traveled to the U.S. from Guatemala in hopes of securing work to pay for her education. The agent, who has been with Border Patrol for 15 years, said the group refused to get on the ground and instead rushed at him, at which point he opened fire, Customs and Border Protection said in a statement on Friday. The group fled after Gómez Gonzáles was shot, CBP said, but three of the individuals were later apprehended.
Aina Akamu gave final exams to his students as they sat on bleachers or the floor of the basketball court in the gym in his small town on Hawaii's Big Island. Kau High and Pahala Elementary School is inundated with gritty, gray ash that has been spewing out of a volcano some 20 miles (32 kilometers) away. No matter how often Akamu sweeps the floors or how many times custodians spray water on buildings, a dusting of ash leaves a normally green tennis court looking gray.

Victims and survivors of mass shootings in Texas choked back tears, recounted the bloodshed that unfolded before their eyes and pleaded with Governor Greg Abbott on Thursday to improve safety so that another massacre does not take place.

"Why Santa Fe and we said why not.
U.S. Border Patrol agents have resorted to troubling tactics toward unaccompanied migrant children including abuse, neglect and harassment, a report about complaint records shows. The American Civil Liberties Union and the International Human Rights Clinic at the University of Chicago Law School published their findings Wednesday after gaining access to more than 30,000 pages of records pertaining to complaints filed between 2009 and 2014. The report, titled “Neglect and Abuse of Unaccompanied Immigrant Children by U.S. Customs and Border Protection,” highlights systematic patterns of mistreatment toward the minors, who by law should be granted special protection.

Pakistan’s lower house has voted for landmark reform that would end draconian colonial era laws making the country’s restive tribal areas subject to collective punishment and beyond the protection of courts. The national assembly voted to bring the semi-autonomous border areas at the centre of the war on Islamist terrorism into the mainstream political fold by incorporating them into a neighbouring province. The move would usher in widespread political reform and see the writ of Pakistan’s courts extend into areas currently ruled by all powerful political agents in a throwback to the British Raj.

An elderly Australian nun facing deportation after angering Philippine President Rodrigo Duterte launched a last-minute appeal against the order on Friday, the deadline for her to leave the country.

Duterte, who accuses the Melbourne native of "disorderly conduct", had the immigration service detain her briefly last month, after which her missionary visa was cancelled.
An ad on Twitter is making some people uneasy. Make sushi night extra special with NEW Hellmann’s made with the delicious goodness of Avocado Oil.

A mysterious wolf-like creature shot dead in the US has baffled wildlife experts, who say they have "no idea" what it is.
