Monday’s Mini-Report, 7.25.16

Today’s edition of quick hits:
 
* Another mass shooting, Part I: “At least two people were killed and more than a dozen others injured after a shooting outside a Florida nightclub hosting an event for teens, officials said early Monday…. Some of the victims are as young as 12, according to authorities.”
 
* Another mass shooting, Part II: “Four people were killed during a shooting at a Texas apartment complex on Saturday night, police said. The victims included a three-year-old boy, two women and a man, Bastrop Police Department said in a statement. The shooter was among the dead, police said.”
 
* Afghanistan: “Three suicide bombers killed at least 80 people and wounded more than 230 others at a protest in Kabul on Saturday, according to the Afghan interior ministry, where thousands had gathered to demonstrate against plans to reroute a new power line.”
 
* Iraq: “A suicide bomber attacked a security check point in northern Baghdad on Sunday, killing at least 14 people, Iraqi officials said. The bomber, who was on foot, detonated his device at one of the busy entrances of the Shiite district of Kadhimiyah, killing at least 10 civilians and four policemen, a police officer said. At least 31 other people were wounded, he added.”
 
* Germany: “The Syrian who blew himself up in southern Germany, wounding 15 people, had pledged allegiance to Islamic State on a video found on his mobile phone, the Bavarian interior minister said on Monday.”
 
* Turkey’s crackdown is far from finished: “One journalist, who was on vacation, had his home raided in the early morning by the police. Others were called in to their bosses’ offices last week and fired, with little explanation. Dozens of reporters have had their press credentials revoked. A pro-government newspaper, meanwhile, published a list of names and photographs of journalists suspected of treachery.”
 
* That’s a lot of fraud: “In the biggest health care fraud case the Justice Department has ever brought, prosecutors charged on Friday that the owner of a network of Florida nursing facilities orchestrated an elaborate scheme to defraud Medicare and Medicaid of more than $1 billion over the last 14 years.”
