(Reuters) - A top Republican lawmaker in North Carolina said the state would not be "bullied" by the U.S. Justice Department into meeting a Monday deadline to change a new law regulating which bathrooms transgender people can use. "We will take no action by Monday," House Speaker Tim Moore told reporters in Raleigh on Thursday, the day after the federal government told the state that the law enacted in March violated the U.S. Civil Rights Act.

US Olympic gold medalist hurdler Aries Merritt will take part in the Diamond League athletics meeting, his first international competition following a kidney transplant last yearJust 248 days after he underwent a kidney transplant, Olympic gold medallist Aries Merritt will on Friday take part in the first Diamond League meeting of the season. The 30-year-old American will be taking his first steps in international competition since his life-changing surgery and, he hopes, the beginning of a path which leads to the Rio Olympics in August and maybe even defending the 110m hurdles title he won at London. "If I won, it would just be a movie for sure," Merritt, who is also the current world record holder in his event, told AFP.
