Himmelman was fatally shot along with his friend Andrew Oneschuk, 18, by a roommate in the Tampa apartment the men all shared. The friends met through an obscure neo-Nazi group called Atomwaffen Division.

A late July report by the Universidad Autonoma Metropolitana (UAM), in collaboration with local NGO Controla tu Gobierno, indicates that most of the water being fed into Xochimilco’s canals comes from a water treatment plant known as Cerro de la Estrella, whose output contains “a high level of fecal coliform that indicate sewage.” (AP Photo/Marco Ugarte)

This May 5, 2016, photo provided by Global Supertanker Services shows a Boeing 747 making a demonstration water drop at Colorado Springs Airport in Colorado Springs, Colo. The company with the 747 retardant bomber that can drop nearly 20,000 gallons (75,000 liters) on wildfires says federal officials are keeping it grounded, putting homes and ground-based firefighters at risk. Officials with Global SuperTanker filed a protest with the U.S. Forest Service in June 2017 contesting a contract limiting firefighting aircraft to 5,000 gallons.

FILE - In this Nov. 1, 2009 file photo, a Palestinian worker prays as others wait for transportation after crossing from the West Bank town of Qalqilya to work in Israel, at the Israeli army's checkpoint near Kibbutz Eyal in central Israel. Just a few months ago in early 2017, Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu’s government quietly passed one of its most significant concessions to the Palestinians: a plan to alter the West Bank map and turn over a small chunk of Israeli-controlled territory to the Palestinians. But after an uproar by West Bank settler leaders, the Israeli government appears poised to cancel the move _ a decision that could upset nascent U.S. efforts to restart peace talks and take away a rare piece of relief for the residents of this overcrowded town.(AP Photo/Oded Balilty, Filw)
