Morning Links for November 16, 2015

The latest updates from France, Lebanon holds a day of mourning, witness intimidation in Milwaukee, Aaron Rodgers’ post-game comments and more.

Good morning, and welcome to the week.

News in France is moving by the minute, so follow the latest updates from the BBC.

Lebanon held a national day of mourning after 41 people were killed in suicide bombings in Beirut.

A new watchdog report from the Journal Sentinel‘s John Diedrich looks into the “out of control” problem of witness intimidation in Milwaukee.

After a tough loss at Lambeau against the then 1-7 Detroit Lions, Aaron Rodgers addressed a fan interruption during a moment of silence paying tribute to the victims, saying “It’s that kind of prejudicial ideology that puts us in the position we are today as a world.”

So yeah, not a super great weekend. But hey, the Bucks beat LeBron and the Cavs in double overtime on Saturday night, so I guess that’s something.
