Air France flight attendants will begin a weeklong strike on Wednesday, downing tools at the height of France's holiday travel period, the airline said. Launching a strike in the middle of summer is "total nonsense", said Air France CEO Frederic Gagey. Last summer Air France flew an average of 1,000 flights a day, carrying some 140,000 passengers.
Two youths were killed and as many as 16 other people injured early Monday in a shooting outside a Florida nightclub as parents were picking up their children from a "teen night" event. Police in Fort Myers, Florida identified the dead as 14-year-old Sean Archilles and 18-year-old Stefan Strawder, described by local media as a star high school basketball player. It came just six weeks after a gunman killed 49 people at a gay club in Orlando, Florida, the worst massacre on US soil since 9/11.
