White House said in a statement that US President Joe Biden had been briefed about the Tulsa shooting. The statement said that the administration has offered support to local officials.

Actor Johnny Depp took to Facebook to post a statement after the court in Virginia found that his ex-wife and actor Amber Heard had indeed defamed him. The verdict followed a six-week much publicised and closely watched case in which both had sued each other.

Russian troops on Wednesday made progress towards gaining control of Severodonetsk, a major city in Ukraine's Luhansk province. Luhansk governor Sergiy Gaiday said that Russians had taken control of 70 per cent of the city and Ukrainian forces are withdrawing to prepared positions.

Slamming the US for its decision to send rocket systems and other sophisticated weapons to Ukraine, Russia has warned that it could widen the conflict and increase the risk of direct confrontation with Washington.
