Here’s the latest for Thursday June 10th: Biden to announce massive vaccine dose donation; Gov’t report says DC protesters weren’t cleared to let Trump stand near church; Meat-packer JBS says it paid hackers $11m; Arizona wildfire partly contained.
MIKE HEMP: This is “AP News Minute.” President Biden is in the United Kingdom, where he’s expected to announce US plans to donate 500 million coronavirus vaccine doses worldwide. He’ll speak in Cornwall, England ahead of the G7 Summit.
A government investigation found that protesters were forced out of Lafayette Park near the White House last year, so fencing could be installed. The Interior Department Inspector General’s report concluded the protesters were not removed, so then President Trump could stand in front of a church holding a Bible.
The world’s largest meat-processing company confirms it paid about $11 million to hackers. The FBI claims a Russian-speaking gang for a massive cyber attack on Brazil-based JPS in May.
And firefighters in Arizona report that a massive wildfire is more than 20% contained. The Telegraph fire, east of Phoenix, has burned more than 125 square miles in two counties. Mike Hemp and the Associated Press with “AP News Minute.”
