    Former Ku Klux Klan leader David Duke talks to the media at the Louisiana Secretary of State's office in Baton Rouge, La., on Friday, July 22, 2016, after registering to run for the U.S. Senate, saying "the climate of this country has moved in my direction." Duke's candidacy comes one day after Donald Trump accepted the GOP nomination for president, and Duke said he's espoused principles for years that are similar to the themes Republicans are now supporting in Trump's campaign, on issues such as immigration and trade.

A Kenyan court has found Chlomondeley guilty of manslaughter of a suspected poacher, reducing the charge of murder for which he has already served three years in jail. The 40-year-old Cholmondeley has already spent three years in a maximum-security prison and now faces up to life imprisonment for manslaughter, but could also walk free when sentence is handed down next on May 12. The Eton-educated aristocrat was accused of murdering Robert Njoya, a suspected poacher, in May 2006 but has only admitted to shooting dogs on his 55,000-acre Rift Valley ranch.
