The Daily Word in the Rio Olympics, a new Republican candidate, and suicide bombings

The Daily Word

Republican Evan McMullin is throwing his hat in the presidential ring as a conservative alternative to Donald Trump. McMullin was previously a CIA operative and the chief policy director of the House Republican Conference. He is running as an independent.

The Olympics began this weekend in Rio, Brazil. Our favorite Olympian is fencer Ibtihaj Muhammad, the first female Muslim Olympian on the US team. She told the BBC "If I can be a source of inspiration to not just Muslim youth, but to other kids who have been told they don't belong because they were different... if I can encourage women to be active, then that is a positive thing."

Another Olympics first: two male Olympic torch-bearers shared a kiss as they passed the torch in the streets of Rio. Also, Laerte Coutinho became the first openly transgender Olympic torch-bearer. I'm not crying, you're crying.

A suicide bombing in Quetta, Pakistan killed more than 60 people on Monday. The bomb was set off in the emergency ward of a hospital, killing mostly lawyers, journalists, and civilians. Nobody has claimed responsibility for the attack yet.

50 protesters were shot and killed by security forces in the Oromia region of Ethiopia over the weekend. These protests came after government attempts to commandeer public land. The state-owned Ethiopian News Agency said that "illegal protests" had been quelled, but mentioned no casualties.
