LINCOLN, Neb. (AP) — The Latest on Nebraska's first execution since 1997 (all times local):
The defence has rested its case in the trial of Paul Manafort, former 2016 campaign manager for Donald Trump, clearing the way for the jury to hear closing arguments. Mr Manafort’s trial on several counts of tax evasion and bank fraud is almost over after his legal team did not call any witnesses to the stand in the federal court in Alexandria, Virginia. The former foreign political agent decided not to testify in what is the first trial related to the FBI investigation, led by special counsel Robert Mueller, of alleged collusion between Mr Trump’s 2016 campaign team and Russian officials.

A widely-condemned white nationalist rally in Washington drew fewer than two dozen supporters, and was drowned out by thousands of counter-protesters chanting "Nazis go home" and "No KKK in the USA". Organisers of the "Unite the Right 2" rally had obtained a permit for up to 400 far-right demonstrators to gather outside the White House. The event was intended to mark the first anniversary of a similar rally in Charlottesville, Virginia last year when neo-Nazis paraded through the streets and Heather Heyer, a counter-protester, died after a far-right sympathiser ploughed a car into a crowd. Jason Kessler, the organiser of both the Charlottesville and Washington rallies, emerged form an underground train station in the capital carrying US flags and flanked by a handful of supporters. They marched down Pennsylvania Avenue to the White House, escorted by police in riot gear.

In Lafayette Square, opposite the White House, counter-protesters included masked members of the Antifa anti-fascist group, along with a wide cross-section of Washington residents.

We killed Nazis before, I don't have a problem with doing it now." He added: "I'm a little old to engage in that. But I'm not surprised so few of them turned up. They were scared, and they should have been."

Kessler claimed his event was a "white civil rights rally" and had been about advocating "free speech for everybody". He added: "It was a precedent that had to be set." As the far-right demonstrators left, counter-protesters attempted to block their path with barricades of bamboo and shopping trolleys. Police escorted the far-right group away in vans.

President Donald Trump was away in New Jersey for the weekend. Kessler had been denied a permit to hold a rally in Charlottesville again this year. At a counter-protest there Heather Heyer's mother, Susan Bro, asked the crowd to raise their fists in solidarity, and laid flowers at a memorial. She said the United States had a "huge racial problem" and still "so much healing to do".
Scientists on Monday unveiled a previously unknown species of giant pterosaur, the first creatures with a backbone to fly under their own power. Neither dino nor bird, pterosaurs -- more commonly known as pterodactyls -- emerged during the late Triassic period more than 200 million years ago and lorded over primeval skies until a massive space rock slammed into Earth, wiping out the dinosaurs and most other forms of life some 65 million years ago. "They are delicately framed animals that are built for flying," said Brooks Britt, a paleontologist at Brigham Young University in Utah and lead author of a study in Nature Ecology & Evolution.
