The family’s statement said he suffered “awful, torturous mistreatment.”
3. The British authorities are treating an attack near a London mosque in which a van, above, rammed into pedestrians, as an act of terrorism against Muslims.
In Paris, an armed man was killed after he rammed a car loaded with weapons and explosives into a police convoy on the Champs-Élysées.
For the British government, the grim news shadowed the start of “Brexit” talks. And there were more recriminations in the wake of the Grenfell Tower blaze. The death toll has hit 79 and is expected to rise further.
4. The Supreme Court agreed to consider whether partisan gerrymandering can violate the Constitution — a case that could reshape American politics.
The justices also ruled that potentially offensive names can be trademarked, though they disagreed about why. That decision is likely to bolster the Washington Redskins’ efforts to keep the name.
And the court ruled that top Bush administration officials can’t be sued over the detention of immigrants after the Sept. 11 attacks.
5. We mapped the path of the container ship that struck a U.S. Navy destroyer off the coast of Japan, killing seven sailors.
Our reconstruction shows that the ship steamed on for about half an hour after the collision before circling back. The Japanese Coast Guard is trying to determine why it took the cargo ship took almost an hour to report the incident.
6. Republican members of Congress are quietly advancing what appears to be a foreign policy at odds with President Trump’s — tougher on Russia, friendlier to NATO and Europe. Some are even visiting allies to assure them of America’s commitments.
At the same time, the health bill being drafted behind closed doors is creating havoc in the Senate. Above, Mr. Trump met with congressional leaders at the White House.

The young Democrat in the race, Jon Ossoff, left, had a strong showing in the first round of voting against the Republican, Karen Handel, right.
8. Here’s a fact that may surprise you: Research shows that American public schools are more segregated today than they were in 1970.
Dallas is one of a handful of cities taking an ambitious approach to changing that dynamic, including trying to attract wealthier families.
When public schools have a mix of economic classes, the superintendent, Michael Hinojosa, said, “the affluent kids don’t suffer and the children of intergenerational poverty do better.”
9. Our space reporter brings good news in what he calls the “quest to end cosmic loneliness.”
NASA’s Kepler spacecraft has identified thousands of space objects that scientists are almost certain are planets orbiting other stars in the Milky Way — 10 of them at the right distance to have liquid water, and one almost identical to Earth.
10. Finally, as New York City heads toward its Gay Pride weekend, our writer takes a tour of L.G.B.T.Q. historical sites, like the eastern end of the beach at Jacob Riis Park, above. Or go yourself — virtually, in our 360 video.
