AUSTIN, Texas (AP) — Texas Gov. Greg Abbott is criticizing today's Supreme Court decision striking down some Texas abortion restrictions. He says the ruling will lead to "more innocent life" being lost, and that it weakens the ability of states to "safeguard the health and safety of women." But the court, by a 5-to-3 vote, sided with clinics that said the regulations were implemented to make it harder for women to get an abortion.

WASHINGTON (AP) — Democrats on the House Benghazi panel are issuing their own report that says Hillary Clinton never personally denied any requests from diplomats for additional security. The panel's five Democrats said after a two-year investigation that the military could not have done anything differently on the night of the attacks to save the lives of four Americans killed in Libya. The Democrats say State Department's security measures in Benghazi the night of Sept. 11, 2012 were "woefully inadequate," but Clinton never personally turned down a request.

LAS ANIMAS COUNTY, Colo. (AP) — A 4-year-old girl is the sole survivor of a crash between a minivan and an Amtrak train that killed her parents and three sisters in southern Colorado.

NEW YORK (AP) — Diet Pepsi made with aspartame is returning to shelves in the United States. Pepsi saw sales plummet following its reformulation of the drink last summer to remove the artificial sweetener. It now says it will offer "Diet Pepsi Classic Sweetener Blend" made with aspartame starting in September -- to appease customers who don't like the taste of the reformulated drink, made with the artificial sweetener sucralose. But the reformulated version will still be the company's primary diet soda offering.

WASHINGTON (AP) — Abortion rights advocates have scored a victory in the Supreme Court's biggest abortion case in nearly a quarter of a century. The justices, by a 5-to-3 vote, today struck down regulations of abortion clinics by the state of Texas -- regulations that have been widely imitated elsewhere. The court ruled in favor of clinics that protested the regulations as a thinly veiled attempt to make it harder for women to get an abortion in the nation's second-most populous state. The ruling held that the regulations are medically unnecessary and unconstitutionally limit a woman's right to an abortion.

WASHINGTON (AP) — Hillary Clinton says the Supreme Court's ruling to strike down Texas' regulation of abortion clinics is "a victory for women in Texas and across America." In a signed posting to Twitter, Clinton says a "safe abortion should be a right-not just on paper, but in reality." She adds that the "fight isn't over," and that the "next president has to protect women's health."

WASHINGTON (AP) — A unanimous Supreme Court has overturned the corruption conviction of former Virginia Gov. Bob McDonnell.

PARIS (AP) — The Paris prosecutor's office has opened a manslaughter investigation into the May crash of an EgyptAir plane that killed 66 people. Prosecutors say there is no evidence so far to link it to terrorism, and that authorities are "not at all" favoring the theory that the plane was brought down deliberately.

LONDON (AP) — British Prime Minister David Cameron says the UK will not trigger formal EU exit talks at this stage. He says the referendum result is "not the outcome I think is best for Britain" but says the result must be respected and implemented in the "best possible way." The Conservative Party leader says there will be no immediate changes for EU citizens now living in the UK. He says an EU exit will be "far from plain sailing" for Britain's economy, but adds that UK financial institutions have "robust" plans and can withstand the uncertainty of a Brexit —a British exit from the bloc.

CAIRO (AP) — Egyptian investigators say the black boxes from a passenger plane that crashed last month have arrived in Paris, where technicians will attempt to repair them. Both devices were extensively damaged when EgyptAir Flight 804 from Paris to Cairo crashed into the Mediterranean on May 19, killing all 66 people on board. Egyptian investigators were unable to download information from the recorders. It remains unclear what caused the crash. The pilots made no distress call, and no group has claimed to have brought down the aircraft.

ROME (AP) — Israel and Turkey say they've reached a deal to end a bitter six-year rift between the Mideast powers. Relations between the once-close allies imploded six years ago after an Israeli naval raid killed eight Turks and a dual American citizen on board an aid ship trying to breach Israel's blockade of the Hamas-controlled Gaza Strip. After the raid, the countries withdrew their ambassadors, largely cut security ties and have since maintained only low-level diplomatic relations.

BEIRUT (AP) — Five people were killed and at least 15 were wounded when military officials say suicide bombers detonated their explosives vests in a northeastern Lebanese village near the border with Syria today. The state-run National News Agency says four bombers carried out the attack in a predominantly Christian village. No group has claimed responsibility.

BEIRUT (AP) — The U.N. and the International Committee of the Red Cross say they are delivering aid for 30,000 people in a besieged rebel-held Damascus suburb (Qudsaya.) The U.N.'s humanitarian coordination office says the convoy entered the suburb today and that the ICRC and the Syrian Arab Red Crescent are taking part in the delivery. Aid has been delivered to several besieged areas in Syria in recent weeks.

NEW YORK (AP) — Stocks are opening lower on Wall Street this morning following big losses in Europe as investors continue to grapple with the fallout of Britain's vote to leave the European Union. The British pound continued to fall today as traders expected the British economy would take a hit. At 10:08 a.m. Eastern Time, the Dow was down 245 points, at 17,156. The S&P 500 was down 31 points to 2,006. And the Nasdaq was down 82 points, at 4,626.

WASHINGTON (AP) — U.S. Treasury Secretary Jacob Lew says that the decision of British voters to leave the European Union is "an additional headwind" for the U.S. and global economies but he says "there is no sense of a financial crisis developing." In a CNBC interview this morning, Lew said it would be important for economic policymakers to signal that they are prepared to use the tools they have to promote economic growth and "not overreact to a volatile day here and there."

BERLIN (AP) —German Chancellor Angela Merkel says she understands that Britain may need "a certain amount of time to analyze things" regarding its departure from the European Union but she says a "long-term suspension" of the question wouldn't be in either side's economic interest. British Prime Minister David Cameron has indicated he plans to leave the start of negotiations to exit the EU up to his successor. Cameron announced last week that he'll be resigning before October.

WASHINGTON (AP) — The Supreme Court has rejected a challenge to Obama administration regulations that extend minimum wage and overtime pay rights to nearly 2 million home health care workers. The justices today turned away an appeal from several home care industry groups that said the Labor Department overstepped its authority when it approved the new rules in 2013. The rules apply to workers hired through third-party staffing.
