Officer Fatally Shoots Man in Brooklyn After Being Attacked - New York Times | "Inside the Islamic State's realm, the paper testifying that you have "repented" from your heretical past must be carried at all times.

ESKI MOSUL, Iraq (AP) - Inside the Islamic State's realm, the paper testifying that you have "repented" from your heretical past must be carried at all times. Many people laminate it just to be safe. It can mean the difference between life and death. Bilal Abdullah learned that not long after the extremists took over his Iraqi village, Eski Mosul, a year ago. As he walked down the street, an Islamic State fighter in a pickup truck asked directions to a local mosque. When Abdullah didn't recognize the mosque's name, the fighter became suspicious.

The latest on church shooting: Victims' names to be released2:54 p.m. Charleston County Coroner Rae Wooten's office says she will provide the names of the nine victims of a fatal shooting at a historic black church in Charleston, South Carolina, at an afternoon news conference.
Suspect in church shooting had apartheid-era patchesCHARLESTON, S.C. (AP) - Dylann Storm Roof drove around with a Confederate flag on his license plate - not exactly an unusual sight in the South. But on his Facebook page, he wore a jacket with the flags of the former white-racist regimes of South Africa and Rhodesia. A picture began to emerge Thursday of the 21-year-old white man arrested in the shooting deaths of nine people during a prayer meeting at a historic black church in Charleston. The Wednesday night attack was decried by stunned community leaders and politicians as a hate crime.
ESKI MOSUL, Iraq (AP) - Inside the Islamic State's realm, the paper testifying that you have "repented" from your heretical past must be carried at all times. Many people laminate it just to be safe.

For cigarette smuggler, a perilous life under Islamic StateESKI MOSUL, Iraq (AP) - It was a heart-racing moment. The cigarette smuggler was stuck in line at a checkpoint as, up ahead, Islamic State militants were searching cars. He was running a big risk: The militants have banned smoking and lighting up is punishable with a fine or broken finger. Selling cigarettes can be a death sentence. Falah Abdullah Jamil, 30, relied on his quick wits and silver tongue.
NBC removes Brian Williams from 'Nightly News'NEW YORK (AP) - NBC News said Thursday that Brian Williams will not return to his job as "Nightly News" anchor following his suspension for misrepresenting himself, but will be given a second chance as a breaking news anchor at the cable network MSNBC. Lester Holt, who has been subbing for Williams since his suspension in February, will take over the job full-time, the network said.
VATICAN CITY (AP) - In a sweeping environmental manifesto aimed at spurring action, Pope Francis called Thursday for a bold cultural revolution to correct what he said was a "structurally perverse" economic system in which the rich exploited the poor, turning Earth into an "immense pile of filth." Francis framed climate change as an urgent moral crisis to address in his eagerly anticipated encyclical, blaming global warming on an unfair, fossil fuel-based industrial model that harms the poor the most.
California reveals details of self-driving car accidentsLOS ANGELES (AP) - California state officials released reports Thursday detailing six accidents that involved self-driving car prototypes, reversing a policy that had shielded details of how the next-generation technology is performing during testing on public roads.
