  1. Navy Crash Probe, Virginia Muslim Girl’s Killing and Tower Fire Toll

    Know This: The U.S. Navy is investigating how a much larger freighter could have crashed into one of its destroyers outside a Japanese port, killing seven sailors whose bodies were recovered this weekend. Police have charged a 22-year-old man with murder after finding the remains of a 17-year-old Muslim girl, reportedly attacked outside a Virginia mosque Sunday. And European stocks are heading toward their biggest increase in two months after the parliamentary landslide of pro-business centrists in France yesterday.

    Remember this Number: 79. That’s the latest death toll in last week’s Grenfell Tower fire in London. Ten victims remain in critical condition, and as authorities comb the building for remains and clues to the fire’s cause, they warn that the body count may still rise.
