German court upholds former Auschwitz guard’s conviction

LONDON (AP) — A jury has found a man with white supremacist views guilty of murdering Labour lawmaker Jo Cox a week before Britain's EU membership referendum.

Jurors at London's Central Criminal Court deliberated for less than two hours before finding Thomas Mair guilty on Wednesday.

Cox was shot and stabbed to death in June in the area of northern England that she represented. Witnesses said Mair shouted "Britain First" as he attacked her.

At his first court hearing he gave his name as "death to traitors, freedom for Britain."

Prosecutors said his home was full of Nazi literature and memorabilia.

Jurors were told that 53-year-old Mair had pleaded not guilty, but his lawyers presented no evidence in his defense.

Dueling protests as Brexit battle goes to UK’s High Court

In this April 25, 2005 file photo, President George W. Bush greets Saudi Crown Prince Abdullah at his ranch in Crawford, Texas. Experts and those familiar with the longstanding U.S.-Saudi relationship say regardless of what happens with the 9/11 bill, it is unlikely the bilateral partnership will return to where it was under former President George W. Bush. Saudi Arabia and its allies are warning that legislation allowing the kingdom to be sued for the 9/11 attacks will have negative repercussions. The kingdom maintains an arsenal of tools to retaliate with, including curtailing official contacts, pulling billions of dollars from the U.S. economy, and enlisting its lockstep Gulf allies to scale back counterterrorism cooperation, investments and U.S. access to important regional air bases.
