Witnesses heard a woman screaming before gunshots fired by Oscar Pistorius killed his girlfriend early on Valentine's Day, South African prosecutors said Monday, contradicting the Paralympic champion's version of events as he was indicted for premeditated murder.

Two young girls in “Make America Great Again” red baseball caps (available in the downstairs gift shop for $40)—sisters who were at least seven years shy of the drinking age—started a “Donald Trump!” chant.
