Canadian Teens Cause an International Incident Playing Pokémon Go
"They lost track of where they were"

Two Canadian youngsters distracted by playing Pokémon Go accidentally crossed the border into the U.S. and had to be apprehended in Montana by federal agents, officials said Friday.

The U.S. Customs and Border Protection said agents found the pair of juveniles illegally entering the U.S. last Thursday by foot. The two were “unaware of their surroundings” while playing the popular game on their cellphones.

“Both juveniles were so captivated by their Pokémon Go games that they lost track of where they were,” U.S. Customs and Border Protection spokesman Michael Rappold said in a statement.

The teenagers were brothers from Alberta, the Toronto Star reports. Officials said they were both later reunited with their mother.

Pokémon Go tasks players with walking around their neighborhoods (and, apparently, border areas) to find and catch Pokemon.

WikiLeaks email dump pushes DNC Chair Wasserman Schultz to resign

Debbie Wasserman Schultz is stepping down as the chair of the Democratic National Committee after a WikiLeaks data dump that proved she and other top democrats colluded against Bernie Sanders. For what it’s worth, Sanders has been calling for her resignation for some time, saying “not only because of the prejudice I think [the DNC] showed during the campaign but also because I think we need new leadership.” That suggests the information detailed in the leaks was an open secret amongst Democrats.
