Slovakia school attack: Knifeman kills one, injures five before being shot dead by police


The 22-year-old attacked his former school in northern Slovakia, killing the deputy director and injuring five, before he was shot dead by police.

Fourteen people have gone on trial in Paris on charges of assisting the gunmen who attacked the weekly Charlie Hebdo and a Jewish supermarket five years ago, killing 17 people.
Only 11 of the suspected accomplices appeared in the packed court on Wednesday to face charges of conspiracy in a "terrorist act" or "association with a terror group". The other three fled to territory controlled by ISIL (ISIS) in Syria or Iraq before the January 2015 attacks on the publication's offices and the supermarket in the French capital.
The three attackers were shot dead by police in separate standoffs.
Al Jazeera's Natasha Butler, reporting from Paris, said the trial would be "very closely watched" in France until it wraps up in November.
"The attacks shocked so many people, prompting an enormous outpouring of grief," she added.
Breonna Taylor, a 26-year-old former EMT, was shot and killed by police in March inside her apartment building. None of the officers have been charged. With protests ongoing five months later, her mother said this moment is "bigger than Breonna."
At least one person has been shot dead and a number of others injured during a third night of protests in the US city of Kenosha. Social media footage appears to show civilians with guns and one victim with a head wound. The gun fire started in the early hours of Wednesday, after hundreds of protesters defied a dawn-to-dusk curfew and clashed with police, who responded with tear gas and rubber bullets. The unrest was sparked after police shot Jacob Blake, a Black resident, seven times in his back. Blake's attorney and family said the shots left Blake paralyzed and fighting for his life.
