Back in the United States, a suspect has been arrested over the recent fires that destroyed three historically black churches in Louisiana. The first blaze occurred at the end of last month, and the two others last week—all in the same community, about 30 minutes north of Lafayette. Authorities say the suspect is a 21-year-old man and the son of a St. Landry Parish deputy sheriff. Police are expected to release more details later today.
