Updated at 4:50 a.m. ET

At least 11 people are dead after an amphibious tourist boat carrying 31 passengers capsized and sank during a severe squall in a lake in southern Missouri, the local sheriff said.

In the early 2000s — the beginning of the third decade of the AIDS epidemic--the world came together in an unprecedented global health effort to provide life-saving AIDS drugs to people even in the poorest corners of the world. It has been an overwhelming public health success story. In 2000, fewer than a million of the then 34.3 million people with AIDS were being treated with AIDS drugs, and almost all of them lived in wealthy countries.

Like any tantruming toddler, the 20-foot-tall baby Trump blimp hovering above Friday's protests in London was difficult to ignore.

Now a plan to bring a replica of the yellow-haired, phone-toting, sneering and diapered balloon stateside has garnered so much support that organizers say they will use the funds to buy multiple blimps "so we can go coast-to-coast, border-to-border."

Why Did Russia Attack The 2016 Election? This Week's Whirlwind Offers New Clues

A pyrotechnic week of geopolitical intrigue has yielded new clarity about the whys and wherefores of the Russia imbroglio, including one insight straight from Russian President Vladimir Putin. Why did Putin order the campaign of "active measures" that have been directed against the United States and the West since before the 2016 election? There appear to be many reasons, but the latest one to break through may be how strongly Putin feels the United States had been waging such a campaign...

Republicans Force Democrats To Go On Record Over Immigration Agency

House Republicans claimed a political victory Wednesday after the House voted 244-35 in favor of officially supporting the U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement agency, a vote intended to force Democrats to take a position amid calls from progressives to abolish the agency.
