Boy, 15, is shot dead by San Diego police after he pulled a BB gun from his waistband and pointed it at them in a high school parking lot
Police shot and killed a 15-year-old student Saturday after he pointed a BB gun at them at Torrey Pines High School in San Diego, authorities said. When two officers arrived, they spotted a youth in the front parking lot. But as they got out of their patrol cars, he pulled a gun from his waistband and pointed it at an officer, police said. The officers drew their guns and ordered him to drop the weapon. But instead he began to walk toward an officer, ignoring more demands to drop the weapon, police said. Both officers fired, hitting him several times. They performed first aid and summoned paramedics, but the teen was pronounced dead at a hospital, police said. The gun was found to be a BB air pistol (pictured top).

Newly engaged MSNBC anchors Mika Brzezinski and Joe Scarborough were poked fun at on the latest hilarious episode of Saturday Night Live where the two NBC stablemates couldn't keep their hands off one another in front of horrified guests and Alec Baldwin appeared via telephone as President Donald Trump during the cold open.

Kate McKinnon took on Brzezinski and absolutely nailed it as Alex Moffat also successfully portrayed Scarborough for the skit.
Confident Macron, 39, and his wife, 64, cast their vote while Le Pen, 48, is targeted by naked protesters as France goes to the polls in presidential election
The French have a stark choice between two candidates - pro-business independent Emmanuel Macron and far-right populist Marine Le Pen. With Macron the pollsters' favorite, voting stations opened across mainland France at 8am (6am GMT) under the watch of 50,000 security forces guarding against extremist attacks. Both candidates were surrounded by press as they voted on Sunday morning. Le Pen cast her ballot in a church Henin-Beaumont, a small northern town controlled by her National Front party. Le Pen (pictured right) arrived at the polling station with Henin-Beaumont Mayor Steeve Briois, who took over as the National Front's leader during the presidential election campaign. Topless feminist activists (pictured inset, left) who had climbed on to the roof of the church, hung a big banner and shouted anti-Le Pen chants were removed and briefly detained by police before she arrived. Front-runner Macron voted in the coastal town of Le Tourquet in northern France alongside his wife, Brigitte (pictured left). The former Socialist economy minister and one-time banker was all smiles as he stepped out of his holiday home in the seaside resort.

They have already been trialled with first-class and business-class passengers on Lufthansa flights, and at Wimbledon.
'He loves the theme songs to Rocky and Dallas so much a live band played the two tunes for four HOURS': Former NBA star Dennis Rodman says 'average Joe' Kim Jong-un 'doesn't want to bomb anyone'

Elephant vigilante ruffles feathers by trumpeting and charging at a pair of ostriches to make them stop fighting
A sensible bull elephant in the Tarangire National Park, Tanzania, was filmed acting as peacemaker after a pair of ostriches starting kicking each other. The magnificent animal ambled towards the pair, surveying them quietly for a few moments before deciding their spat was more than a mere annoyance. He began spreading his ears - a known sign of aggression in elephant body language - but when that failed to break the ostriches apart he gave an almighty trumpet and charged at the birds.
