Father of Virginia TV reporter slain on air vows to fight for gun control

Chris Hurst, a journalist at the station and boyfriend of killed journalist Alison Parker pauses for a moment as Jeff Marks, general manager for WDBJ7 looks onBy Ian Simpson WASHINGTON (Reuters) - The father of a Virginia journalist killed in an on-air shooting said on Thursday he would become a crusader for gun control, but analysts said there was little likelihood of legislation on the federal level any time soon, despite changes in some states. Two journalists, reporter Alison Parker and cameraman Adam Ward of Roanoke CBS affiliate WDBJ7, were shot during a live interview on Wednesday by a disgruntled former station employee who later killed himself. Parker's father, Andy Parker, urged state and federal lawmakers to take action on gun control, especially to keep firearms out of the hands of people who were mentally unstable.

Cancer, transplant patients protest over Venezuela's medicine shortages

Protesters hold placards during a gathering in demand for medicines in CaracasBy Alexandra Ulmer CARACAS (Reuters) - Venezuelans with chronic medical conditions such as breast cancer, hemophilia and transplants protested in Caracas on Thursday, the latest demonstration to demand urgent medicines in a country beset with shortages. Around 13,000 people with chronic issues are at risk of severe harm if they do not find chemotherapy or medicines, including those that prevent organ transplants being rejected, according to organizer CodeVida, a non-profit umbrella health group. A combination of currency controls, slumping domestic production and cross-border smuggling have caused acute shortages of medical supplies in socialist-led Venezuela.


Lockdown lifted after reports of shooting at Georgia's Savannah State University
One person was hospitalized after being shot and wounded near or inside the student union, the Atlanta Journal Constitution newspaper and broadcaster WSBV-TV reported, citing a university official. The campus of the historically black university is in the heart of Savannah, an Atlantic seaport that is Georgia's oldest city and the seat of Chatham County. The Savannah incident came a day after two television journalists were slain by a gunman during a live broadcast in Virginia and about two months after the June 17 fatal shooting of nine parishioners at a landmark African-American church in Charleston, South Carolina.
