On Monday, Obama met with law enforcement officials to discuss implementing a set of police reforms drafted by a White House task force, and he'll meet Wednesday with a broader group, including law enforcement, activists and academics. The persistence of mass shootings in America means responding to these events is a new part of life at the White House. One officer lost teeth after a projectile was thrown outside police headquarters, and police also confiscated three rifles, three shotguns and ...
The visit comes on the heels of Sen. And it will take place days before the Republican convention opens to officially nominate presumptive nominee Donald Trump.

And then there's the question of whether or not David Cameron will remain Prime Minister, considering he was firmly pro-remain. "I think it is a bit too early to start speculating about that", he said. But European chiefs made clear that the country should set the wheels in motion "as soon as possible, however painful that process may be". It's a swift reality facing Britons, in particular those that voted to leave but didn't actually expect the Brexit to happen.
North Korea said the US was notified Sunday of the closure of what is known as the NY channel, a route for diplomats from the two countries to communicate at the United Nations. In comments to reporters, he called on North Korea "to refrain from actions and rhetoric that only further raise tensions in the region". They allegedly made reports on South Korea's key affairs and wrote letters praising Kim Jong-un and the regime's former leaders between December 2014 and April 2015.
Prime Minister Malcolm Turnbull has declared victory in the federal election, saying it is vital for the nation that all sides of politics work together to make this term of parliament work. Even though Mr. Turnbull's conservatives held a strong lower-house majority in the last Parliament, a hodgepodge of fringe lawmakers advocating everything from souped-up cars to looser gun laws blocked legislation in the Senate , including budget measures.
Vice President Riek Machar has reciprocated the move. Machar responded by ordering his troops to stand down. This includes whether either side is gaining an upper hand or how much control Kiir and Machar have over their forces. But this was the first time it had flared in Juba since Machar finally returned in April after months of wrangling about terms of the pact. "But in a way, it's a situation that is not that surprising when you look at the history of South Sudan, not just because it's ...
It's believed to be the first time this technology has been used lethally on American soil. In hundreds of negotiations he used bomb-disposal robots dozens of times, often to communicate with barricaded and risky suspects. The U.S. military has sent remotely piloted drones to kill hundreds of people, including civilians, in counterterror attacks launched overseas since 2009, based on estimates released last week by the Obama administration.
She acknowledged that Mrs May had secured overwhelming backing in a vote of Conservative MPs last week.

He said he and Kenyatta agreed the economies of the two countries can benefit more "if we nurture greater intensity of commercial links; take steps towards a more diversified trade basket; and expand our investment ties further".
The Cabinet minister told the Press Association: "It's 15 months since the Conservative Party got a mandate with her as one of its key leading members - I think the last thing this country needs right now is a general election". Mrs May was a clear favourite with Conservative MPs and her support led Andrea Leadsom to concede defeat this morning. While May supported Britain staying in the European Union, she cut a low profile during the referendum and has insisted she will honour the ...

He has refused to stand down, despite losing a vote of no confidence which saw 172 of Labour's MPs vote against him - with just 40 voting in support of their leader. Eagle has the backing of the 51 MPs needed for a formal challenge but it remains unclear whether Corbyn will also have to secure the support of MPs and MEPs in order to fight the leadership battle.
Powerful business lobbies - both traditionally supportive of Republican candidates - took the highly unusual step of lashing out at Trump during a speech he gave Tuesday that hammered US free-trade deals. "There's nothing that is closer to my heart than trade". However, the American electorate is becoming younger and less white. Trump's most controversial statements have concerned immigration.
In addition to the continued battles in Juba , clashes broke out in the town of Torit in the southeast. The violence marks a fresh blow to last year's peace deal which has failed to end the civil war that broke out in December 2013, when Kiir accused Machar of plotting a coup.
Trump promised to clean house at the VA, ticking off a series of scandals, from the deaths of veterans while on a waiting list for care to the bonuses paid executives who oversaw massive cost overruns. "I will pick up the phone and fix it myself if I have to", he said. "I thought today's women were independent and had a lot of sexual freedom", he said in April 2006.
China has intensified the drumbeat of its opposition. An worldwide tribunal has criticized China for building a large artificial island on Mischief Reef in the South China Sea, saying it caused "permanent irreparable harm" to the coral reef ecosystem and permanently destroyed evidence of the natural conditions of the feature.
In a stinging assessment of her email practices as secretary of state, Comey rebuked Clinton and her aides for being "extremely careless" in their handling of classified information and contradicted numerous defenses and explanations she's put forward for months.
Add to that his almost four years as Indiana's governor, and Pence brings 16 years of government experience to a ticket that now boasts zero. Pence has a reputation of being a hardcore conservative who sticks to his principles even in the face of certain trouble (see his approach to Indiana's Religious Freedom Restoration Act , for example).
Xu explained that the mere existence of the arbitration case "undermined the efforts to implement some cooperation projects between China and ASEAN". In a statement released straight after the ruling, the Philippines government said it "strongly affirms its respect for this milestone decision as an important contribution to ongoing disputes in the South China Sea".
What we do know is that there has been a vicious, calculated and despicable attack on law enforcement. Just a few weeks ago, Obama spent hours in Orlando, Florida, consoling the loved ones of 49 people who were killed in a shooting rampage at a nightclub.

Justice Secretary Michael Gove dropped out of the race after receiving only 46 votes, leaving May and Leadsom in a head-to-head battle for the post that David Cameron is vacating. She said Britain needed "strong, proven" leadership to handle the Brexit negotiations. A spokesman for Mrs May said: "Andrea Leadsom's commitment to give permanent residence to foreign criminals is concerning - and is exactly the kind of misjudgment that her inexperience can cause".
May's uncontested win sparked calls for a snap general election. May had campaigned tepidly for Britain to remain but on Monday sought to reassure those who voted "leave" that she would respect their wishes. Mrs May has promised to "make Brexit a success". "We need strong, coherent Government with an effective Opposition", he said. Leadsom, a relative unknown in British politics, had advocated for a British exit from the European Union.
Cameron resigned after Britons voted June 23 - against his advice - to leave the European Union, and May will have to oversee the complex process of separating from the bloc. While Mrs May is the firm favourite among MPs to become their next leader, Mrs Leadsom's supporters believe her credentials as a campaigning Brexiteer on the right of the party could garner plenty of support among grassroots members.
But it criticized presumptive Democratic presidential nominee Hillary Clinton, who was secretary of state at the time of the violence, saying both she and her staff showed a "shameful" lack of response to congressional investigators looking into the attack on a US diplomatic compound.
Now, based on the FBI's decision, Hillary can say the same, and perhaps she will enjoy the same level of credibility with voters that Nixon had. The fact pattern presented by Director Comey makes clear Secretary Clinton violated the law.
Eight years ago in Beijing, as the youngest member of Canada's Olympic track and field team, Muir ran a personal best but eventually failed to make the final.
