By Luciana Lopez DES MOINES, Iowa (Reuters) - Republican presidential hopefuls in Iowa and elsewhere have recently begun sounding a call to arms to Christian conservatives, describing what they say is an urgent threat to religious liberty. Citing high-profile dust-ups over religious freedom bills in Indiana and Arkansas, the contenders are painting a vivid picture of faith under fire. “In the past month, we have seen religious liberty under assault at an unprecedented level,” Senator Ted Cruz of Texas said on Saturday at a forum sponsored by the Iowa Faith and Freedom Coalition outside Des Moines. . . more
Eight months ago, the future of the civil rights movement that convulsed Ferguson, Mo., remained an open question. The protests in Baltimore this weekend are the latest proof that something has already changed. In the end, it seems, it has not mattered that the groups that came together in Ferguson have not been able to spawn an organized national movement of the scope that Martin Luther King Jr. did in the 1960s. This past week, that trend has added the name Freddie Gray to the list of black men whose deaths have recently brought attention to the issue of police violence. . . more
By Shannon Stapleton BALTIMORE (Reuters) - Baltimore's mayor and police on Sunday again blamed outside agitators for violence and vandalism that flared during a mostly peaceful protest over last week's death of a young black man who sustained an unexplained spinal injury while under arrest. A day after thousands of demonstrators marched through the city demanding justice in the investigation into the April 19 death of Freddie Gray, 25, Mayor Stephanie Rawlings-Blake condemned the lawlessness that erupted on Saturday. "Last night we saw a small group of agitators turning what was otherwise a peaceful demonstration into violent disruptions," Rawlings-Blake said at a news conference held by civic leaders and clergy at a Baltimore church, echoing comments she made Saturday night. . . more
(Reuters) - Multiple gunshots were fired early Sunday into two buses carrying Grammy-winning rap music star Lil Wayne and his entourage on a Georgia highway following a performance in Atlanta, but no one was hurt, police said. About a dozen people were aboard the two buses together when the pre-dawn shooting occurred on Interstate 285 near the junction of Interstate 75, northwest of Atlanta, Cobb County police spokesman Sergeant Dana Pierce said. Atlanta police spokeswoman Elizabeth Espy was quoted by the Atlanta Journal-Constitution newspaper as saying there were two suspect vehicles involved, possibly a sports car and a sport utility vehicle, both white. According to the Journal-Constitution and the celebrity news website TMZ, Wayne, 32, performed Saturday night at the Compound nightclub in Atlanta. . . more
The U.S. Supreme Court is set to hear arguments this week on whether a drug used in Oklahoma's lethal injection mix should be banned in a case that comes as a shortage of execution chemicals has sent some states scrambling for alternatives. The main question before the nine justices in the case brought by three death row inmates that will be heard on Wednesday is whether the use of the sedative midazolam violates constitutional protections against cruel and unusual punishment. The case does not address the constitutionality of the death penalty in general, but brings fresh attention to the debate over whether executions should continue in the United States. Opponents say midazolam is not approved for use in painful surgeries and should not be used in the death chamber because it cannot maintain a coma-like unconsciousness, potentially leaving inmates in intense pain from lethal injection drugs that halt breathing and stop the heart. . . more

Russian hackers who penetrated sensitive parts of the White House computer system last year read President Barack Obama's unclassified emails, the New York Times reported on Saturday, quoting U.S. officials. "There is no evidence that the president's email account itself was hacked, White House officials said. Still, the fact that some of Mr. Obama's communications were among those retrieved by hackers has been one of the most closely held findings of the inquiry," the paper said. A White House spokeswoman declined to comment on the report but the White House earlier this month confirmed the breach, saying it took place last year and that it did not affect classified information. . . more
