6 Things to Know for Today

Posted: Updated:

Your daily look at late-breaking news, upcoming events and the stories that will be talked about today:
    
1. METROJET PLANE LOST SPEED, ALTITUDE BEFORE CRASHING
    
The company says that no technical fault could have caused the Airbus A320-200 to break up in the air, adding that "only a mechanical impact" on the aircraft could have led to the tragedy.
    
2. HOW RUSSIAN GOALS IN SYRIA ARE DEFINED
    
The root answer lies in the timing: Putin finally decided Bashar Assad was in danger of losing control of Damascus, and that could threaten Moscow's foothold in the Middle East.
    
3. WHAT'S COMMON IN OFFICER SEX MISCONDUCT INCIDENTS
    
Flaws in law enforcement policies and a protective culture of policing can allow sexual predators in police ranks to go unnoticed or unpunished until it's too late, the AP finds.
    
4. WHO GETS PERSONAL IN CRIMINAL JUSTICE PUSH
    
As Obama tours the country to advocate for law enforcement reforms, he isn't afraid to identify with the people being policed, as well as with the police.
    
5. JAPAN, SOUTH KOREA AGREE TO WORK TO RESOLVE WWII SEX SLAVE ISSUE
    
Japan has apologized many times before, but many South Koreans see the statements and past efforts at private compensation as insufficient.
    
6. PALESTINIAN LAWYER TALKS ABOUT ICONIC PHOTO OF TEAR GAS KICK
    
The image is unexpected: Palestinians clashing with Israeli soldiers are typically masked stone-throwers in scruffy jeans, not nattily dressed professionals.
