Unrest: Police officers shoot and kill a man. People gather in the streets to protest. Bricks and bottles are thrown; tear gas is used. Another night in Ferguson, Missouri? No, this was right next door in north St. Louis last night, where protests broke out after an 18-year-old man was killed by police earlier in the day. Police said he was shot after pointing a gun at two officers who were carrying out a search warrant. Police used tear gas to disperse the demonstrators after they said the crowd threw things at officers
‘Big network’: The search for clues in this week’s bombing in the Thai capital extends way beyond a man in a yellow shirt. Last night police said at least 10 people may have been involved in the deadly bombing, which killed 20 people and left more than 120 wounded.

Wildfires on the West coast — aided by severe drought — have also blackened parts of California and Oregon for weeks.
