Tuesday's assault at Robb Elementary School in the heavily Latino town of Uvalde was the deadliest shooting at a U.S. school since Sandy Hook. UVALDE, Texas — An 18-year-old gunman killed 19 children and two adults as he went from classroom to classroom at a Texas elementary school, officials said, adding to a gruesome, yearslong series of mass killings at churches, schools and stores. The attacker was killed by a Border Patrol agent who rushed into the school without waiting for backup, according to a law enforcement official. The agent was wounded but able to walk out of the school, the law enforcement official said. It was corrected to reflect that state Sen. Roland Gutierrez said the gunman shot his grandmother before going to the school; he did not say the gunman killed his grandmother.

Earlier today Xiaomi announced a partnership with Leica, which spelled the end for the long lasting cooperation between the camera maker and Huawei (since 2016). This means that the P50 and P50 Pro are the last Huawei phones with Leica cameras. The P50 Pocket skipped the Leica branding, despite launching in December last year (months before the partnership officially ended). This means that the Huawei Mate 50, whenever it may appear, will also go with an unbranded camera. The Huawei P50 and P50 Pro were the last phones from the company to have Leica camerasThere were speculations as early as May last year that Leica was looking to jump ship after Huawei’s market share slid due to trade sanctions.

Election: Only way out of the national crisis? That all the representatives on the banks of the Diyawanna Oya can be painted with the same brush has been disputed. The 18th Amendment to the constitution was approved on September 8, 2010 with 161 MPa voting for and 17 against it. In spite of days of acute suffering Sri Lankans have gone through since then, Gotabaya doesn’t seem to be going. Since the Gota regime is quite unlikely to hold an election soon, could the activists declare ‘a revolution’ and hold a parliamentary election for the people to decide under the normal laws of the land?
