Attack targets London mosque
The New York Times reports that UK authorities are treating a deadly van attack outside a mosque in London this morning as terrorism targeting Muslims, "amid fears of retaliation for several recent assaults in the country attributed to Islamist extremists."

Offensive or taking back terms?
The U.S. Supreme Court ruled that a law against registering a trademark of a disparaging term violates the First Amendment, in a case brought by the Slants, an Asian American rock group who were originally told they couldn't trademark their band name, reports the Washington Post.
