CHARLEROI, Belgium (AP) — Belgium's prime minister is cutting short his vacation in France to return to Brussels for a meeting tomorrow of the National Security Council. That's after a man with a machete wounded two female police officers in the Belgian city of Charleroi (shahr-lur-WAH') before being shot dead. The prime minister says "preliminary indications" suggest the attack was an act of terrorism, but that authorities are still collecting information.

CAMDEN, N.J. (AP) — Upcoming concerts will go on as scheduled at a New Jersey amphitheater where a railing collapsed during a Snoop Dogg and Wiz Khalifa concert last night, injuring 42 people. The operators of Camden's BB&T Pavilion say that includes an "I Love the 90s" concert today featuring Salt N Pepa, Vanilla Ice and other performers, and a show tomorrow by Fifth Harmony would go on as planned.

RIO DE JANEIRO (AP) — Olympic organizers have apologized to spectators for long lines to get into parts of the Olympic Park. Spectators have to go through airport-style security checks before entering Olympic venues, and that led to long waits in the hot sun today. A spokesman for the Rio organizing committee says steps are being taken to prevent a repeat of the situation. He also says organizers will look whether drivers of official buses have had sufficient training, after reports of some of the buses getting lost.

CINCINNATI (AP) — Donald Trump's running mate is campaigning in southern Indiana and Ohio, including a stop at a well-known Cincinnati chili parlor. At his first appearance today in Lawrenceburg, Indiana, Mike Pence delivered pizza and a pep talk to GOP volunteers running a phone bank. Next he stopped at Price Hill Chili in Cincinnati, where he shook hands, posed for pictures and had a bite of chili.

ANDOVER, Mass. (AP) — A Massachusetts woman has been accused of vandalizing a Donald Trump campaign sign and nearly running over the sign's owner. The encounter happened early today in front of a home in Andover. Police say the homeowner confronted Bryant when he caught her spray-painting his sign. The man told police he had to run out of the way of Bryant's vehicle as she drove off. Police say 57-year-old Susan Bryant is charged with defacing property and assault with a dangerous weapon.
