BREAKING NEWS BRIEF
The Tour de France superfan who caused a massive cyclist pile-up on Saturday may have fled the country, authorities say.
French police are looking for the woman who held a sign toward the camera while walking into the bike path.
Tony Martin was the first cyclist to drive into the sign, and several other competitors crashed after that.
“I saw the lady, I saw the sign but there was no time to react,” Martin said. “I still can’t understand how people can do things like that.”
One person’s injuries were so severe that they had to drop out of the race. Several other cyclists and onlookers were also hurt.
Police are investigating the incident and released a description of the suspect they are attempting to find.
Meanwhile, the organizers of the race wish to sue her.

Big Oil is likely to face an exponential increase in climate lawsuits over the coming years, a trend that analysts say is reminiscent of activists turning to the courts to take on the tobacco industry.
Since the turn of the century, more than 2,000 climate litigation cases were found to have been filed in a trend that is widely expected to have global implications for carbon-intensive companies. The U.S. and EU account for 90% of climate-related lawsuits since 2000.
Analysts believe this is merely scratching the surface of what is to be expected in the future — drawing parallels to the so-called tobacco trials of the 1950s and 1960s.

TIRED OF OFFICE POLITICS?
State lawmakers in Oregon have added something major to their political agenda recently: free medicaid for illegal immigrants.
Democratic Governor Kate Brown is expected to sign the bill that was just passed by state lawmakers. Representative Maxine Waters, co-sponsor of the bill, explained why it was needed in Oregon.
“From an economic standpoint, this is just common sense policy. …Right now, people who can’t afford basic preventative care are relying on emergency services…” she stated.
And while the bill has plenty of support from Oregon officials, it is creating a political firestorm elsewhere. Attorney Peter Lumaj has described the bill as “an insult to every American citizen.”

The United States on Monday strongly defended weekend strikes against Iran-aligned militias but the fighters vowed revenge and both Iraq and Syria condemned the unilateral U.S. air strikes as violations of their sovereignty.
The U.S. military said it targeted operational and weapons storage facilities at two locations in Syria and one in Iraq in response to drone attacks by the militia against U.S. personnel and facilities in Iraq.
“We took necessary, appropriate, deliberate action that is designed to limit the risk of escalation, but also to send a clear and unambiguous deterrent message,” U.S. Secretary of State Antony Blinken said.
