Obama sips Flint water, urges children be tested for lead

U.S. President Barack Obama drinks a glass of filtered water from Flint, a city struggling with the effects of lead-poisoned drinking water, during a meeting will local and federal authorities in MichiganBy Timothy Gardner FLINT, Mich.

Obama made the trip to the mostly African-American community to demonstrate that the water there was safe even as he predicted it would take more than two years to replace the city's aging pipes. Flint, with a population of about 100,000, was under control of a state-appointed emergency manager in 2014 when it switched its water source from Detroit's municipal system to the Flint River to save money.

Author says he now thinks father wasn't Iwo Jima flag-raiser

FILE - In this Feb 23, 1945 file photo, U.S. Marines of the 28th Regiment, 5th Division, raise the American flag atop Mt. Suribachi, Iwo Jima, Japan. The Marine Corps said Monday, May 2, 2016, that it has begun investigating whether it mistakenly identified one of the men shown raising the U.S. flag at Iwo Jima in one of the iconic images of World War II after two amateur history buffs began raising questions about the picture. The Marines announced its inquiry more than a year after Eric Krelle, a toy designer from Omaha, Neb., and Stephen Foley, who works at a building supply company in Wexford, Ireland, questioned the identity of one man. (AP Photo/Joe Rosenthal, File)DES MOINES, Iowa (AP) — The author of a best-selling book about his father and other men who raised a U.S. flag at Iwo Jima during World War II said Tuesday he no longer believes his father was in an iconic photograph of the event.

Australia’s Top ISIS Recruiter Has Been Killed in Iraq, Officials Say
Australia is the biggest per capita supplier of foreign fighters to ISIS

An Australian man who reportedly served as a senior recruiter for the Islamic State of Iraq and Greater Syria (ISIS) militant group has been killed in an air strike by U.S. forces in Iraq, according to reports.

The U.S. military told the Australian government that Neil Prakash was killed along with about a dozen other ISIS fighters in the city of Mosul in northern Iraq last Friday, the Sydney Morning Herald reported.

Prakash is believed to be the most senior Australian figure to have joined ISIS, and has previously called for attacks on his home country and the U.S. Australian Prime Minister Malcolm Turnbull called Prakash’s death a “very positive development in the war against [ISIS],” according to the Australian newspaper.

Shadi Jabar, the sister of a teenager who opened fire on a police station in New South Wales last year in an ISIS-inspired attack, was also reportedly killed in a separate strike.

Australia is the biggest per capita supplier of fighters to the international terrorist group’s forces in the Middle East, with at least 110 individuals from the country reportedly fighting in Syria and Iraq.
