Normandy marks D-Day’s 79th anniversary, honors WWII veterans

ON OMAHA BEACH, France (AP) — World War II veterans, officials and visitors are commemorating D-Day on the beaches of Normandy to honor those who fought for freedom in the largest naval, air and land operation in history. Many reenactors came to Omaha Beach at dawn Tuesday to mark the 79th anniversary of the assault that led to the liberation of France and Western Europe from Nazi control. A ceremony was to be held at the American Cemetery in Colleville-sur-Mer, which is home to the graves of 9,386 United States soldiers. Most of them lost their lives in the D-Day landings and ensuing operations. An international ceremony is scheduled to take place later at the nearby British Normandy Memorial in the presence of officials from the nine main Allied nations.

Just days to spare, Senate gives final approval to debt ceiling deal, sending it to Biden

WASHINGTON (AP) — Fending off a U.S. default, the Senate has given final approval to a debt ceiling and budget cuts package. It's now on its way to President Joe Biden's desk to become law before a fast-approaching deadline. The Senate ground through late-night voting Thursday to wrap up work on the hard-fought deal. The compromise package negotiated between Biden and House Speaker Kevin McCarthy leaves neither Republicans nor Democrats fully pleased with the outcome. But the result cuts spending for two years and suspends the debt limit until 2025 after the next presidential election. Biden says he will sign it into law as soon as possible.

Indiana governor signs bills targeting LGBTQ students

INDIANAPOLIS (AP) — Indiana's governor has signed a bill that would require schools to notify a parent if a student requests a name or pronoun change at school. The bill is one of the final bills approved in a legislative session that had targeted LGBTQ+ people, especially students. Republican Gov. Eric Holcomb's approval of the legislation on Thursday comes in a year when Republican-led legislatures around the country are seeking to curb LGBTQ+ rights, specifically targeting transgender people's participation in sports, workplaces and schools, as well as their access to health care. Holcomb also signed into law a bill that could make it easier to ban books from public school libraries.

Russia says Ukraine sent drones to hit Putin; Kyiv denies it

KYIV, Ukraine (AP) — Russia claims it foiled a Ukrainian assassination attempt using drones against President Vladimir Putin, denouncing the alleged attack as a ''terrorist'' act and promising retaliation. Ukraine denied any involvement, saying Moscow could use it for further escalation of the war. Kremlin spokesman Dmitry Peskov was quoted as saying Putin wasn't in the Kremlin at the time of the nighttime attack. There was no independent verification of the reported attack, which Russia authorities said occurred overnight but presented no evidence to support it. Nor did officials say why it took more than 12 hours to report. If true, the alleged attack is a significant escalation in the 14-month conflict.
