Police in South Florida say a 29-year-old officer has died after being shot in the head during a confrontation with a robbery suspect in Miami. Det. Cesar Echaverry was shot Monday night as Miami-Dade police closed in on a robbery suspect. That man was identified as 32-year-old Jeremy Horton of Acworth, Georgia. He was pronounced dead at the scene. Horton was suspected in a robbery in nearby Broward County earlier on Monday. Police say three people in a nearby vehicle also were injured when Horton rammed into their car. The Florida Department of Law Enforcement is investigating.

Symbolically and spiritually, the Jordan River in the Middle East is of mighty significance to many as where the Bible says Jesus got baptized. Physically, the Lower Jordan River of today is a lot more meager than mighty. Environmentalists have for years been warning that the Lower Jordan River, which runs south from the Sea of Galilee, is particularly threatened by decades of water diversions and by pollution. Only a tiny fraction of its historical water flow now reaches its terminus in the Dead Sea. The transboundary river’s history and water have been as politically fraught as holy, intertwined with the entanglements of the decades-old Arab-Israeli conflict. This has fueled its decline and complicates efforts to save it.
