Obama seeks unity in wake of Orlando

President Obama and Vice-President Biden head to Orlando on Thursday, in a show of support for the local LGBT community and the families of those affected by the weekend’s attack on The Pulse nightclub.

Big day at the Euros, with all three home nations playing, and – for now – all still potentially competitive. Only one of them, mind you, is under threat of expulsion because of their fans.
