Seattle police retreated to a precinct early Sunday, just hours after declaring a riot during large demonstrations in the city's Capitol Hill neighborhood near where weeks earlier people had set up an “occupied protest zone” that stretched for several blocks. Authorities said rocks, bottles, fireworks and mortars were thrown at officers as they attempted to clear the area using flash bangs and pepper spray over the course of several hours stretching into Saturday night. Seattle police Chief Carmen Best called for peace at a late-night news conference, and told reporters she hadn't seen U.S. agents the Trump administration dispatched to the city at Saturday's protest.
A group of heavily armed Black protesters marched through Louisville, Kentucky on Saturday demanding justice for Breonna Taylor, a Black woman killed in March by police officers who burst into her apartment. Scores of the demonstrators, carrying semi-automatic rifles and shotguns and clad in black paramilitary gear, walked in formation to a fenced off intersection where they were separated by police from a smaller group of armed counter-protesters. The Black militia dubbed NFAC want justice for Taylor, a 26-year-old emergency medical technician who died in a hail of gunfire when drug investigators bearing a "no-knock" warrant entered her Louisville home four months ago.
Donald Trump lashed out at his Democratic rivals in Washington by branding them “Stone Cold Left – Venezuela on steroids! after the House of Representatives voted in favour of the No Ban Act, moving to repeal his travel ban on visitors from several Muslim-majority countries.

North Korean leader Kim Jong Un declared an emergency and imposed a lockdown in the border city of Kaesong after the country reported its first suspected coronavirus case, state media said Sunday, adding that a person who defected three years ago to South Korea returned last week and exhibited COVID-19 symptoms after "illegally crossing the demarcation line." Pyongyang shut its borders and put thousands of people in isolation six months ago when the coronavirus pandemic began, but Kim's regime has not acknowledged any coronavirus cases during that span, a feat analysts say was always unlikely.
A college professor who had been slammed by his own university for "vile" and "hateful" statements was found dead inside his North Carolina home, less than two weeks before his planned retirement, authorities said Friday. University of North Carolina Wilmington professor Mike Adams' death was discovered after a friend who hadn't seen or heard from him "in a couple of days" called the New Hanover County Sheriff's Office on Thursday and asked that deputies check on him, sheriff's Lt. Jerry Brewer told NBC News. "It is with sadness that we share the news that the New Hanover County Sheriff's Office is conducting a death investigation involving Dr. Mike Adams, professor of criminology," the university said in a statement on Thursday.

The complicated legal history of the case against Amy Locane includes three sentences imposed by two judges, as well as numerous appeals. It stems from a crash in March 2010 that killed Helene Seeman and seriously injured her husband, Fred, as they turned into their driveway in Montgomery Township in central New Jersey. This week, an appeals court ruled that a different judge incorrectly resentenced her last year, and sent the case back for another sentencing.
New York Governor Andrew Cuomo said the state may seek damages after the Trump administration admitted making false statements in a U.S. lawsuit over New Yorkers being barred from a program that allows the use of expedited lanes at U.S. airports. The U.S. Attorney's Office in Manhattan admitted Thursday it had made inaccurate statements in a lawsuit brought by New York state over the Trusted Traveler program. It said the Department of Homeland Security (DHS) would immediately lift the ban.
President Donald Trump got just about as introspective as he's capable of getting during an interview with Barstool Sports founder Dave Portnoy this week at the White House. “There are times when I love it,” Trump said with a smile. “Too much sometimes, right?” After getting his social-media guru Dan Scavino to confirm his current total number of followers, the president boasted about his “very big voice” in the face of “fake news,” adding, “It's been very important for me.”
As COVID-19 cases rise in most states, the prospect of in-person learning this fall at the country's major school districts is becoming increasingly remote. As back-to-school season approaches, it's highly likely the majority of big districts will start learning remotely while they work out plans for socially distant reopenings, said Annette Anderson, deputy director of the Johns Hopkins Center for Safe and Healthy Schools. The biggest factor: whether the community where the school is located is seeing infection rates decrease, said Kristi Wilson, superintendent of the Buckeye Elementary School District in Arizona, who is president of the American Association of School Administrators.

The girl wasn't showing symptoms, but all three of the family members were taken into the hospital's intensive care unit, Chang told the outlet.
Small countries have long sold residency and passports to those with spare money willing to invest. The old adage says that consumers will vote with their wallets, but David Lesperance has a different analogy: voting with their feet. Lesperance, a double-decade American expatriate who's made his career out of helping wealthy people around the world move their citizenships and acquire secondary passports for any multitude of reasons, says business is booming this year.
Average temperatures in Siberia were 18F above average last month, the United Nations weather agency warned Friday. The spate of exceptional heat has fanned devastating fires in the Arctic Circle and contributed to a rapid depletion in ice sea off Russia's Arctic coast. "The Arctic is heating more than twice as fast as the global average, impacting local populations and ecosystems and with global repercussions," World Meteorological Organization secretary-general Petteri Taalas said in a statement.
The Minneapolis City Council voted Friday to shift police media duties from the Police Department to city staff in what one council member called a move to improve trust, amid calls for changes in policing after George Floyd's death. The shift in media duties won't affect the city's bottom line, but was seen as emblematic of a struggle over the future of policing in Minneapolis, where a majority of council members favor replacing the current department with a different kind of public safety agency.
The statue of Robert E. Lee and busts of seven other Confederate soldiers were quietly removed from the Virginia Capitol building overnight as states and cities around the country continue to grapple with symbols of America's racist past. The state's Democratic House speaker, Eileen Filler-Corn, ordered the removals from the Old House Chamber in Richmond, which once served as the capital of the Confederacy. “Virginia has a story to tell that extends far beyond glorifying the Confederacy and its participants,” Filler-Corn said a statement to the Washington Post.
