TUNISIA MUSEUM ATTACK
Suspects wanted: Terrorists have struck at the heart of Tunisia’s tourist industry, opening fire at a museum in Tunis, the capital. Gunmen killed 19 people and sent tourists scrambling for cover. Tunisian security forces killed two attackers, but warned that three suspects were still on the loose. Polish, Italian, German and Spanish tourists were among those killed, Prime Minister Habib Essid said yesterday. Another 20 foreign tourists and two Tunisians were wounded in the attack.
VIRGINIA POLICE BRUTALITY ALLEGATIONS
Racial injustice?: The governor of Virginia has ordered an investigation after a black student at the University of Virginia was injured during an arrest early yesterday. A picture from the scene shows a bloodied Martese Johnson during his arrest. He was charged with public intoxication and obstruction of justice, the Virginia Department of Alcoholic Beverage Control said in a statement. The special agents involved have been assigned to administrative duties. Johnson is a third-year student double majoring in Italian and media studies. He has no criminal record, according to his attorney. A massive crowd gathered last night to protest how Johnson was treated.
Case details: Robert Durst appeared to be prepared for life on the lam when FBI agents arrested him in New Orleans. The millionaire heir, according to court documents, had more than $40,000 in cash with him — and a neck-to-head latex mask to alter his appearance. The new details about Durst, who’s been charged with first-degree murder, emerged yesterday in court documents supporting a search warrant for his Houston home. He’s being held on drug and weapons charges in Louisiana as he awaits extradition to Los Angeles to face charges in the 2000 killing of his close friend.
