MOUNT PLEASANT, S.C. (AP) — Republican presidential candidate Donald Trump is facing criticism after calling for a "total and complete shutdown of Muslims entering the United States." Trump's proposed ban would apply to immigrants and visitors alike. Jennifer Horn, chairwoman of the Republican Party of New Hampshire, calls Trump's plan un-Republican, unconstitutional and un-American. But Trump supporter Rod Weader, a 68-year-old real estate agent from North Charleston, says he agrees with Trump "150 percent."

SAN BERNARDINO, Calif. (AP) — Authorities say San Bernardino County employees had undergone training on what to do if a gunman invades the workplace, and that training occurred in the same conference room where another county employee and his wife opened fire last Wednesday, killing 14 people. It's not clear if gunman Syed Farook attended that training in late 2014. Authorities say he and his wife Tashfeen Malik had been radicalized for quite some time before they attacked the holiday luncheon. They were both killed in a gunfight with police. a0459

PARIS (AP) — An Air France flight from San Francisco to Paris has been diverted to Montreal after an unspecified anonymous threat, and all passengers have gotten off the plane safely.

France is in a state of emergency since the Nov. 13 terror attacks in Paris that killed 130 people.

JACKSON, Ga. (AP) — Georgia is set to execute later today Brian Keith Terrell, who was convicted of killing a 70-year-old man. Terrell was on parole in June 1992 when he stole and forged checks belonging to John Watson. Prosecutors say Terrell was supposed to return the money but instead shot Watson multiple times and severely beat him. Watson was a close friend of Terrell's mother.

DENVER (AP) — A Denver man convicted of pushing his wife to her death from a cliff in Rocky Mountain National Park will be sentenced to life in prison when he appears in court later this morning. A judge on will impose the mandatory sentence against 59-year-old Harold Henthorn. His second wife, Toni Henthorn, plummeted 130 feet in a remote, rocky area of the park in September 2012. Henthorn had taken her there to celebrate their 12th wedding anniversary. Prosecutors say he wanted to collect $4.7 million in life insurance policies she didn't know existed.
