An Air Algerie plane missing since early Thursday over Mali with 116 passengers and crew, including 50 French nationals, on board probably crashed, French President Francois Hollande said.

He vowed to deploy all of France's military means in Mali, where it has hundreds of troops, to track down the wreckage of the missing plane. Flight AH5017, which originated in Ouagadougou and was bound for Algiers, went missing in the early morning amid reports of heavy storms, company sources and officials said.
- U.S. Jewish group wants its award back from Turkey's Erdogan
An association of Jewish Americans said Turkish Prime Minister Tayyip Erdogan has become the world's "most virulent anti-Israeli leader" and demanded he return an award it gave him a decade ago, partly for his efforts to broker peace between Israel and Palestinians. The New York-based American Jewish Congress awarded Erdogan its "Profile of Courage" award in 2004 for what it said was his stance on fighting terrorism and working towards a peace. "Now, we want it back," the association's president, Jack Rosen, said in an open letter to Erdogan dated July 23 and made public on Thursday. He cited the Turkish leader's comments last weekend that Israel had "surpassed Hitler in barbarism" through its attacks on Gaza.

Chachi suffers from an eye infection; Jonie even licks Chachi's eye lovingly from time to time. Unfortunately, veterinarian staff at Metro Animal Control have been unable to cure the infection, but officers are hoping the pooch pals can get adopted together — since no one has come forward to claim either dog. There's already a lot of interest from around the world.
