SAN ANTONIO (AP) — A U.S. official says the death toll from people found in the back of a sweltering tractor-trailer in the parking lot of a San Antonio Walmart has risen to 10. Thomas Homan, acting director of U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement, told The Associated Press that two people died in a hospital. Eight dead bodies were found in the truck.

JERUSALEM (AP) — The leader of the Islamic militant group that rules Gaza praised a Palestinian who stabbed three Israelis to death in their home in a phone call to the attacker's father. Ismail Haniyeh called the attack "heroic" Sunday and said the assailant "lifted the heads of the nation high."

WASHINGTON (AP) — The White House indicated Sunday President Donald Trump would sign a sweeping Russia sanctions measure that the House could take up as early as Tuesday. The measure requires him to get Congress' permission before lifting or easing the economic penalties against Moscow. The bill could be sent to Trump before Congress breaks for the August recess. The legislation is aimed at punishing Moscow for meddling in the presidential election and its military aggression in Ukraine and Syria.

AMMAN, Jordan (AP) — Jordan's domestic security agency says three people, including an Israeli man, have been wounded by gunfire in a residential building in the heavily fortified Israeli embassy compound in Jordan's capital. The agency says that before the shooting, Jordanians had entered the building for carpentry work. A security official says one of the Jordanians was critically wounded and later died at a hospital.

LOS ANGELES (AP) — When O.J. Simpson told a parole board last week that he led a "conflict-free life" before going to prison for a bungled Las Vegas heist, he seemed to forget that he had some serious run-ins with the law. Among them, a 1989 no-contest plea to beating his then-wife, Nicole Brown Simpson. Others included a road-rage incident in 2000. The question now is: Can he stay out of trouble?
