Mets suffering an early identity crisis

Who are these guys? The first-place Mets? The .500 Mets? The fundamentals- and timeliness-challenged Mets? As they return home following their first trip out of the Eastern time zone since 2019, Steve Cohen’s Mets find themselves in search of an identity as well as some wins. “I just want us to build that consistency as a team so that we can play our best baseball,” Luis Rojas said late Thursday night, after his club suffered its third straight loss, 4-3 in 10 innings to the Cubs at Wrigley Field. At 7-7, good enough to be tied with the Phillies (9-9) for first place in the National League East, the Mets had best be far from their best baseball if they

California sheriff’s deputy’s 2016 slaying leads to life sentence for defendant

A California defendant is expected to get life in prison without parole after pleading guilty Thursday to first-degree murder in the 2016 shooting death of a sheriff’s deputy. Trenton Lovell, 31, of Lancaster, will be formally sentenced May 17, according to The Associated Press. Los Angeles County Sheriff’s Department Sgt. Steve Owen, a 29-year veteran, died after being struck by five bullets — one to the head and others to his face and chest, according to court documents, the Los Angeles Times reported. Owen had responded to a call about a break-in when he encountered Lovell, the newspaper reported. Another sheriff’s officer, Deputy Zachary Anderson, said in court that he saw Lovell standing over Owen’s body when he arrived at the

Shooting revives criticism of Israel’s use of deadly force

JERUSALEM — Hours after Israeli soldiers shot and killed Osama Mansour at a temporary checkpoint in the occupied West Bank, the military announced that it had thwarted a car-ramming attack — but the facts didn’t seem to add up. By all accounts, Mansour had initially stopped his car when ordered to do so. His wife, the mother of his five children, was sitting in the passenger seat. And after the soldiers sprayed the vehicle with gunfire, killing him and wounding her, they declined to arrest her as an accomplice. Witnesses say the soldiers killed Mansour for no apparent reason, part of what rights groups say is a pattern of fatal shootings of Palestinians by Israeli forces under questionable circumstances. The

Denmark tells some Syrians to leave, separating families

COPENHAGEN — An email brought Faeza Satouf’s world to a standstill. The 25-year-old Syrian refugee had fled the civil war with her family in an all-too-familiar journey across the sea to Europe, where they finally arrived in Denmark and were granted asylum in 2015. Yet six years later, she was being told she had to go back — alone, and soon. Ten years after the start of the uprising against Bashar al-Assad’s regime, Denmark has become the first European country to start revoking the residency permits of some Syrian refugees, arguing that the Syrian capital, Damascus, and neighbouring regions are safe. Yet few experts agree with Denmark’s assessment. “There are no laws in Syria that can protect me like here

Yankees’ Domingo German comes up big after rough first inning

CLEVELAND — As the Yankees and Domingo German slogged their way through the first inning Thursday, Aaron Boone wasn’t sure the right-hander would even survive the frame. “To have the pitch count where it was, you’re [thinking] are you gonna have to get somebody up?” Boone said. German gave up three runs in the inning, hurt by an error he made, as well as some shaky glove work by Brett Gardner in left field and Mike Ford at first base. He then shut down the Indians for the next five innings in a 6-3 comeback victory at Progressive Field. Boone called it a “remarkable performance, considering how the first inning unfolded.” Kyle Higashioka had a different description. Domingo GermanAP “The

‘Look after my babies’: In Ethiopia, a Tigray family’s quest

Gunfire crackled near the straw-woven home of Abraha Kinfe Gebremariam. He hoped it drowned out the cries of his wife, curled up in pain, and the newborn twin daughters wailing beside her. The violence had broken out in northern Ethiopia’s Tigray region at the worst possible time for Abraha and his family. Their village of Mai Kadra was caught in the first known massacre of a grinding war that has killed thousands of ethnic Tigrayans like them. Abraha pleaded with his wife, writhing from post-childbirth complications, to be silent, fearful any noise would bring gunmen to his door. His two young sons watched in fear. “I prayed and prayed,” Abraha said. “God didn’t help me.” He was terrified his family

Lakers’ Anthony Davis returns as Mavericks lose Kristaps Porzingis in win

DALLAS — Anthony Davis is back for the Los Angeles Lakers. Now the Dallas Mavericks have to see how long they might without their big man, Kristaps Porzingis. Luka Doncic scored 30 points, leading the Mavericks to a 115-110 victory over the Lakers on Thursday night as Davis was rusty after missing 30 games with right calf and heel issues, the longest absence of the eight-time All-Star’s career. Porzingis left in the third quarter and didn’t return to the first of two consecutive games against the Lakers after spraining his left ankle. “I’m not sure where to begin on this one,” said Dallas coach Rick Carlisle, who said Porzingis hadn’t been ruled out for the rematch Saturday, also on national

Non-governmental organizations urge ASEAN to include ousted Myanmar lawmakers in crisis summit

A grouping of 45 Southeast Asian non-governmental organizations has urged regional leaders to include Myanmar lawmakers ousted by the military to attend a summit on Saturday to discuss the turmoil in that country. The Association of Southeast Asian Nations (ASEAN) summit is to be held in Jakarta, Indonesia. Myanmar’s junta chief, who ousted the civilian government on Feb. 1, is likely to attend, diplomats and officials in the host nation have said. “ASEAN leaders will not be able to achieve anything at this summit to solve the current crisis without consulting and negotiating with the rightful representatives of the peoples of Myanmar,” the NGOs said in a letter published on social media.
