There were "no indications" the teenage gunman who killed 9 in the German city of Munich had links to ISIS or any other terror group, the police said Saturday.

"There is no indication that there is a link to ISIS," he added.

Call it the United Sweats of America. A heat wave spreading across the country is leaving few places to hide. Not even the cool of night.
By Friday afternoon, all but one of the Lower 48 states had hit 90 degrees somewhere, with only Washington around for cooler comfort. For much of the country, it was expected to get even worse over the weekend.

Hillary Clinton made no mention of her running mate during a rally in Tampa Friday evening, instead delivering a fiery rebuttal to Donald Trump's acceptance speech at the Republican National Convention.
"The last thing we need is somebody running for president who talks trash about America," Clinton said of the Republican nominee's lengthy address in Cleveland.
Clinton accused Trump of offering a "dark and divisive vision" beyond what he's said in the past. "Last night's speech took it to a whole new level. He offered a lot of fear and anger. And resentment but no solutions about anything that he even talked about," she said.
Clinton also took issue with Trump's assertion that he speaks for most Americans, NBC News reported. She went on a long list of groups she doesn't believe he represents, including: small business owners, housekeepers, cooks, immigrants, people with disabilities, veterans and women.
