A gunman shot dead six people at a birthday party in Colorado, United States, before killing himself on Sunday, police said. 

Donald Trump encouraged the Capitol rioters and so earned his Facebook ban, but the social media giant's rules are in "shambles" and need fixing, the co-chair of the network's oversight panel said Sunday.

A long line of people snaked across the sand of Miami Beach, Florida, as dozens of travellers from Latin America waited their turn at a pop-up coronavirus vaccination booth.

Dr Anthony Fauci, Chief Medical Advisor to US President Joe Biden said on Saturday (local time) that it was likely that US officials have been undercounting the number of deaths due to COVID-19. His comments have come after a new report from University of Washington that says the death toll was nearly double.
