Nearly a week of recurring protests over the police killing of a black man in Charlotte, North Carolina, showed no signs of abating on Sunday after police released videos of the shooting that did not resolve the question of whether the victim had a gun. Hundreds marched through the center of Charlotte on a fifth night of demonstrations that stretched into Sunday morning, including white and black families protesting police violence. One sign read “Stop police brutality” and another showed a picture of a bloody handprint with the phrase #AMINEXT, a social media tag about the fear of becoming a victim of police.
Indian off-spinner Ravichandran Ashwin claimed three wickets to have New Zealand reeling on 93 for four at stumps Sunday as the hosts tightened their grip on the first Test. New Zealand were still 341 runs behind their mammoth target of 434, with Luke Ronchi (38) and Mitchell Santner (8) battling on in India's 500th Test. The pair put on 37 for the fifth wicket to steady New Zealand's innings somewhat after the visitors were reduced to 56 for four.
