4 police officers shot dead in Dallas protest
At least four police officers were shot dead and sever others injured on Thursday night after two snipers opened fire during a protest in Dallas over the recent fatal police shootings of black men in the US.
 
In a statement, police said of the seven injured, three are in "critical" condition and two others still in surgery, EFE news reported.
 
The whereabouts of the suspects is still unknown and police has requested the cooperation of citizens.
 
According to officials, one of the suspects would have been killed, while another possible suspect wearing a bullet-proof vest is in a downtown Dallas parking garage, which is being evacuated by the authorities.
 
Dallas police Chief David Brown also told the media that they "believe that the suspects have threatened to plant a bomb in the downtown area."
 
Police released a photograph of a "person of interest" in the case, a young man, black and burly, wearing a military shirt and carrying what looks like a rifle in the image, and asked for public assistance to identify him.
 
Gunfire broke out late Thursday during an otherwise peaceful protest over the deaths of Philando Castile in Minnesota and Alton Sterling in Louisiana. 
 
Castile, 32, was shot by a police officer after a traffic stop on Wednesday. His girlfriend, Diamond Reynolds went live on Facebook immediately after her fiance was shot by police in his car.
 
Castile later died from his wounds. In the video, Reynolds' four-year-old daughter is seen watching the incident from the back seat.
 
According to Reynolds, the police had pulled their car over for a broken tail light in Falcon Heights district.
 
Castile's death occurred within a day of the shooting of 37-year-old Alton Sterling in Baton Rouge, Louisiana, CNN reported.
 
Sterling was killed during an altercation with two white police officers and a video of the incident recorded by a bystander on his smartphone triggered outcry on social media.
 
All across the US, people vented their anger over the killings of the two black men in two days.
 
The protesters chanted "Hands up, don't shoot," the line made famous in the Michael Brown shooting in Ferguson, Missouri in 2014.

France beat Germany 2-0, to face Portugal in Euro final
Antoine Griezmann scored a brilliant brace to power hosts France to a comfortable 2-0 win over Germany in the semi-finals of the European Championship here on Thursday and set up a final showdown against Portugal.
 
The hosts survived a barrage of German pressure in the first half before Griezmann's penalty gave them a lead just before the break, before doing pretty much the same in the second until the Atletico Madrid man struck again to put the game beyond the World Champions.
 
The striker has now six goals in the ongoing tournament.
 
After winning their first major semi-final appearance since the 2006 World Cup, Didier Deschamps' side will be favourites to win the title as they look to seal glory having won their two previous Euro finals.
 
For the semis clash the world champions’ side was re-shuffled due to the absences of Mario Gomez, Mats Hummels and Sami Khedira.
 
In the match that saw him crowned the most-capped European player at major international tournaments, Bastian Schweinsteiger denied Patrick Evra the chance to head at goal with his arm from close-range after Griezmann's corner.
 
The referee had no hesitation in awarding France a spot-kick and Griezmann calmly guided the ball past Manuel Neuer, who went the wrong way.
 
Germany suffered yet another huge blow when key centre-back, Jerome Boateng, limped off after an hour.
 
Despite the first goal, Germany continued to have the best of possession but failed to sneak past the French defence.
 
With 18 minutes remaining in the tie, a mistake from Joshua Kimmich inside his own penalty area was pounced upon by French midfielder Paul Pogba. 
 
A clever footwork left Mustafi for dead before he sits up a cross that can only be parried by Neuer, and Griezmann was first on the scene to prod home his sixth goal of the tournament.
 
Following the second of the night for France, there was no looking back for the hosts as they held on well to not allow Germany to score and eventually kept a clean sheet and book a date with Portugal in final at home soil.
