A photo of Alfred Olango, who was shot by El Cajon police Tuesday, is seen at a makeshift memorial at the parking lot where he was shot in El Cajon, CaliforniaBy Patrick Fallon EL CAJON, Calif. (Reuters) - Authorities on Friday released two videos of police shooting an unarmed black man dead in El Cajon, California, but the grainy footage, much of it without sound, was not likely to pacify community outrage over the incident. Police and prosecutors said an investigation was still under way into the fatal shooting on Tuesday of Ugandan-born Alfred Olango, 38, and that no decision had been made on whether to criminally charge the officers involved. "This is as difficult a situation as any law enforcement officer will ever encounter and it's one we never seek," El Cajon Police Chief Jeff Davis told a news conference.

Spain's Socialist Party (PSOE) leader Pedro Sanchez speaks during a press conferences following the party's federal executive meeting at the PSOE Headquarter in Madrid on September 5, 2016Spain's crisis-hit Socialists are gathering for a key meeting on Saturday that may help end the country's prolonged political deadlock and decide the fate of embattled party leader Pedro Sanchez. The roughly 300 members of the party's federal committee -- its de-facto parliament -- have been summoned to the Socialist headquarters in Madrid for a showdown between allies of Sanchez and opponents who want him out. The outcome could see the party lift its veto on a new government led by acting conservative Prime Minister Mariano Rajoy, a move that would be key in unblocking Spain's nine-month political paralysis.
