File-This April 18, 2016, file photo shows U.S. Ambassador to the United Nations Samantha Power meets with a woman and her children who fled to Mokolo, Cameroon, Monday, April 18, 2016, to escape Boko Haram. The package included about $1,725 in cash; a pair of cows; hundreds of kilograms of flour, onions, rice, salt and sugar; and cartons of soap and oil. State Department spokesman Jeffrey Loree says the U.S. also is drilling a well for potable water in the northern Cameroon village where the seven-year-old boy lived. The accident occurred in April as Power visited the front lines in the war against Boko Haram. An armored jeep in Power’s motorcade struck the child as he darted into the road, killing him instantly. (AP Photo/Andrew Harnik)WASHINGTON (AP) — Hoping to make amends for a tragic accident, the United States has provided a wide range of compensation to a Cameroonian family whose child was killed by a vehicle in U.N. Ambassador Samantha Power's motorcade. The package included everything from cash to cows, U.S. officials said.

Shoppers walk a connecting path from The Court to The Plaza at the King of Prussia Mall, United State's largest retail shopping space, in King of Prussia, Pennsylvania on December 6, 2014.U.S. consumer spending rose for a second straight month in May on increased demand for automobiles and other goods, but there are fears Britain's vote to leave the European Union could hurt confidence and prompt households to cut back on consumption. The Commerce Department said on Wednesday consumer spending, which accounts for more than two-thirds of U.S. economic activity, increased 0.4 percent last month, pointing to an acceleration in economic growth in the second quarter. Consumer spending in April was revised up to show it advancing 1.1 percent instead of the previously reported 1.0 percent jump.
