Verizon is buying Yahoo for $4.83 billion, marking the end of an era for a company that once defined the internet.
It is the second time in as many years that Verizon has snapped up the remnants of a fallen internet star as it broadens its digital reach. The nation's largest wireless carrier paid $4.4 billion for AOL last year.
Yahoo will be rolled into Verizon's AOL operations and CEO Marissa Mayer may be reunited with AOL CEO Tim Armstrong, who worked with her as executives at Google for years and tried unsuccessfully to convince her to combine the two companies when they both remained independent.
A Syrian man blew himself up in Ansbach, Germany, killing himself and injuring 12 others on Sunday during an outdoor festival, police confirmed to NBC News.
The three-day open-air festival was taking place in Ansbach, a city of 40,000 people about 20 miles southwest of Nuremberg in Bavaria. The blast occurred just two days after a gunman killed nine people at a mall in Munich.
Joachim Herrmann, the interior minister in Bavaria, said at a news conference Monday morning that three of the wounded were in serious condition but that none of the injuries was believed to be life-threatening.
Herrmann said it remained to be determined whether the explosion was related to terrorism, but because the man wore a backpack carrying explosives and metal projectiles capable of hurting many people, "we must assume that it was not purely a suicide."

Democratic National Committee Chair Debbie Wasserman Schultz says she will step down at end of party's convention. DNC Vice Chair Donna Brazile will serve as interim chair through the election.
The announcement comes amid growing pressure for the Florida congresswoman to step down after email leaks suggested committee officials favored Hillary Clinton during the party's primary.
"I think she should resign, period, and I think we need a new chair who is going to lead us in a very different direction," Sanders said Sunday on ABC's "This Week."
The Vermont senator also reiterated his calls for Wasserman Schultz to resign on "Meet the Press," after 19,000 emails leaked Friday by the website Wikileaks revealed that some DNC officials internally showed favoritism towards the Clinton campaign while outwardly claiming impartiality.

Thousands of demonstrators took to Philadelphia's sweltering streets Sunday, cheering, chanting and beating drums in the first major protests ahead of the Democratic National Convention, as the city wilted during a heat wave.
Throngs of Bernie Sanders supporters marched down a main thoroughfare to show their support of him and disdain for Hillary Clinton ahead of the convention.
Though planned for months, Sunday's marches came as fractures appeared in the party that had been trying to display a show of unity in recent weeks. Debbie Wasserman Schultz resigned Sunday as Democratic Party chair over an email suggesting the DNC had played favorites for Clinton during the primary. It was a stunning leadership shakeup as party officials gather in Philadelphia to nominate Clinton.

Dave Hemingway was named the winner of the "Papa'' Hemingway Look-Alike Contest on Saturday in Key West, Florida. The winner said he is not related to the late author.

A top Donald Trump campaign adviser dismissed allegations that Russian hackers were behind the DNC email leak, NBC News reported.
Trump campaign chair Paul Manafort said it showed how “desperate” Hillary Clinton’s campaign is after Clinton campaign manager Robby Mook made the suggestion to CNN on Sunday.
"They're pretty desperate pretty quickly," Trump Campaign Chairman Paul Manafort said at a press conference in Philadelphia on Sunday. "It's a far reach, obviously. To lead their convention with that tells me they really are trying to move away from what the issues are in this campaign."
Manafort downplayed the possibility that Russia was involved with the leaks, saying “we don’t know who’s behind the leaks,” but tied them to Clinton’s use of a private email server, suggesting she created a bigger risk than the one created by the DNC leak.
