Stonewall Jackson's Descendants Want His Monuments Taken Down
While attendees at last Saturday?s violent ?Unite The Right? rally in Charlottesville, Virginia, may want to keep monuments to generals like Robert E. Lee and Thomas ?Stonewall? Jackson standing, some relatives of the Confederate leaders do not. On Monday, the Rev. Robert Wright Lee, IV, the former general?s great-great-great-great-nephew, said that he believed it was time to take down the statues of his ancestor. Now, William Jackson Christian and Warren Edmund Christian, the great-great-grandsons of Stonewall Jackson, also want statues honoring the Confederate general removed from public display in their home town of Richmond, Virginia, and other cities as well.
Witness: Cambrils terrorist taunted and smiled at police as they shot him
A witness told of how a terrorist responsible for the second attack in Spain yesterday taunted police before they shot him dead. Fitzroy Davies, from Wolverhampton, was caught up in the second attack in Cambrils and described what he saw. He told the BBC he was in Spain for a judo camp and was in a meeting with the coaches when the incident unfolded. "These girls ran into the bar off the street and then people were running up the road. "One of our guys stood up, looked and just said 'run', so we all ran. "This guy came running up the road and was shouting something. "I didn't know what it was, so we said call the police. "Within 30 seconds the police was already there, jumped out of the car, started shouting at the guy, the guy was then saying something else again. "And then they 'pop, pop', did a couple of shots and he fell down. "He stood back up and then he stepped over the fence and he started, he was taunting, smiling and he carried on walking to the police, and then they gave it to him again, a couple more shots and then he fell to the ground."

Police did not immediately say how the attack was being carried out. A police officer and five civilians were injured and two were in serious condition.
