AP wants an independent investigation into Israel's airstrike on the al-Jalaa Tower. Separately, media watchdog Reporters Without Borders asked the International Criminal Court to investigate Israel's bombing of a building housing the media organizations as a possible war crime. Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu said Israel would share any evidence of Hamas' presence in the targeted building through intelligence channels. RSF said it had strong reason to believe that the Israeli military's "intentional targeting of media organizations and intentional destruction of their equipment" could violate one of the court's statutes. The State Department said Blinken offered "his unwavering support for independent journalists and media organizations around the world and noted the indispensability of their reporting in conflict zones."

Her assignment will be to build on the gains made at a publication that has been restored to health under Mr. Bezos, who bought The Post in 2013, and Mr. Baron, who led the paper to 10 Pulitzer Prizes and other journalism awards during his eight years at the helm. The Post’s search for a new executive editor, led by the publisher Frederick J. Ryan Jr., started at the end of January, when Mr. Baron gave a month’s notice, saying, “At age 66, I feel ready to move on.”This is a developing story.

Twenty-two women have filed lawsuits against the standout Houston Texans quarterback, saying he forced sexual contact with them during massage sessions in 2020 or earlier this year. "These lawsuits are replete with mischaracterizations of Mr. Watson's conduct," defense lawyer Rusty Hardin wrote in a response to one of the plaintiffs, Ashely Solis. Watson's attorneys said without the names, the quarterback would have had no chance to defend himself against their claims. And accuser Krystle Da Rosa sought Watson for work, even after he was allegedly inappropriate with her, according to Hardin. "As fully anticipated and despite his lawyer’s previous statements, Deshaun Watson’s only defense is to call these brave women liars," Buzbee said.
