18 PROTESTERS ARRESTED AFTER OFFICER’S ACQUITTAL
Police arrested 18 protesters early Saturday as thousands gathered in St. Paul, Minn., after a jury acquitted a police officer who shot and killed Philando Castile.
Troopers for the Minnesota State Patrol began arresting people after issuing three warnings for them to get off Interstate 94, according to a statement from spokeswoman Tiffani Nielson.
Castile, a black motorist, was killed during a traffic stop last July by former Officer Jeronimo Yanez in Falcon Heights, a St. Paul suburb. The shooting received national attention when Castile’s girlfriend live- streamed the moments after he was shot.
TRUMPS TRADE REGAL FOR RUSTIC AT CAMP DAVID
President Donald Trump chose simple over swanky this weekend. Nearly five months into his presidency, Trump flew for the first time Saturday to Camp David, the government- owned retreat in Maryland’s Catoctin Mountains. A frequent weekend traveler, Trump has favored his palatial residences in Florida and New Jersey over the wooded hideaway used by many presidents for a break from Washington.
Trump told foreign newspa- pers earlier this year that Camp David was “very rustic,” and “you know how long you’d like it? For about 30 minutes.”
Trump’s wife, Melania; their son, Barron; and the first lady’s parents, Viktor and Amalija Knavs, joined the president for the overnight at Camp David. Trump is scheduled to return to the White House on Sunday.
58 STILL MISSING, PRESUMED DEAD AFTER FIRE IN LONDON
Authorities in London said Saturday that 58 people are missing and presumed dead from this week’s fire disaster at a London high- rise tower.
The update from police came as Prime Minister Theresa May met for more than two hours at her office at 10 Downing Street with survivors of the high- rise fire. May has faced a barrage of criticism for the government’s initial response to the tragedy that authorities initially said left at least 30 dead.
“The figure of 58 are those who are missing and that we have to presume are dead,” said Commander Stuart Cundy, a spokesman for London’s Metropolitan Police. “It might be that some of those are safe and well but for whatever reason have not reached ( out) to let us know.”
Vincent and Lindsey Mercado and their children walk past an overturned truck and weatherdamaged homes in the Hyda Hills neighborhood of Bellevue, Neb., on Saturday, after a severe weather front passed through the previous evening.
