An elongated solar filament that extended almost half the sun's visible hemisphere erupted into space on April 28-29, 2015, in a large burst of bright plasma. Filaments are unstable strands of solar material suspended above the sun by magnetic forces. Solar astronomers around the world had their eyes on this unusually large filament and kept track as it erupted. Both of the coronagraph instruments on the joint ESA/NASA Solar and Heliospheric Observatory, or SOHO, show the coronal mass ejection associated with the eruption.
A man was shot reportedly by the police during daytime protests in Baltimore on Monday afternoon. The incident happened at 2:45 p.m. ET close to the intersection of Pennsylvania and North avenues in Baltimore near the epicenter of where protests have occurred in the days since the arrest and death last month of Freddie Gray, a young black man. It was not immediate clear who had fired, but eyewitnesses at the scene and a reporter for Fox News said that it was an officer-involved shooting.

Nulla si sa ancora sull'identita' del secondo assalitore. Simpson - secondo le indiscrezioni ottenute dalla Abc - fu in particolare giudicato colpevole e condannato per aver mentito all'Fbi circa i suoi programmi di recarsi in Africa, probabilmente per arruolarsi nelle fila dei militanti jihadisti.
