Three Dead, Five Wounded in Shooting on Netherlands Tram
UTRECHT, Netherlands (AP) — A gunman killed three people and wounded five others on a tram in the central Dutch city of Utrecht on Monday morning in what the mayor said appeared to be a terror attack, touching off a manhunt that saw heavily armed officers with dogs zero in on an apartment building close to the shooting.

Experts Are Calling for a Ban on Gene Editing of Human Embryos. Here ’s Why They’re Worried
In November 2018, Chinese biophysicist Jiankui He stunned the world when he announced that he had used a controversial gene-editing technology, called CRISPR, to genetically alter the genes in embryos and give them immunity to HIV.
