WHAT’S HAPPENING IN OTHER STATES?
The governor on Friday signed a ban at eight weeks, among the most restrictive abortion policies in the nation.
Judges block bans:
A federal judge in Mississippi temporarily blocked a law banning most abortions and a federal judge in North Carolina formally struck down a 20-week ban.
The American Civil Liberties Union and Planned Parenthood sued to block a law that bans almost all abortions.
A “low force” blast hit a busy pedestrian street Friday in the French city of Lyon, injuring seven people as it shattered the glass from a refrigerated shop cooler in a bakery, a local official said.
France’s anti-terrorist office opened an inquiry into the blast and the antiterrorism prosecutor went to Lyon. The interior minister also was on site, and soldiers secured the area.
French media quoted a Lyon official as saying that an image of the man who deposited a sack or suitcase that apparently exploded was captured by surveillance cameras.
