ALBUQUERQUE, N.M. (AP) — In one of the presidential campaign year's more grisly spectacles, demonstrators at a Donald Trump rally in New Mexico threw burning T-shirts, plastic bottles and other items at police officers, injuring several, and toppled trash cans and barricades. Authorities labeled it a "riot."
Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu has reached a deal with a hardline nationalist party to join his government, negotiators said Wednesday, forming what is being called the most right-wing government in the nation's history. Under the agreement, Avigdor Lieberman and his Yisrael Beitenu party will join Netanyahu's coalition, adding five lawmakers to his previously wafer-thin parliamentary majority. Lieberman, who has spoken of harsh measures against Palestinian "terrorists", is to take over the key role of defence minister.
