Communications systems in the Gaza Strip were down for a second day with no fuel to power the internet and phone networks, causing aid agencies to halt cross-border deliveries of humanitarian supplies even as they warned people may soon face starvation. The World Food Program says nearly all of Gaza's 2.3 million people need food. The war, now in its sixth week, was triggered by Hamas’ Oct. 7 attack in southern Israel in which the militants killed more than 1,200 people, mostly civilians. Israel's military continued operating overnight into Friday in the northern Gaza Strip, but has said it is now consolidating its control of the area.

A woman convicted of murder in the shooting death of rising professional cyclist Anna Moriah Wilson in Texas faces up to life in prison when sentenced in a case that led investigators on a 43-day international search to find her. Kaitlin Armstrong, 35, was convicted Thursday and jurors are expected to resume deliberating her sentence Friday. Prosecutors say Armstrong gunned down the 25-year-old Wilson in a jealous rage in May 2022. Armstrong then fled to Costa Rica where prosecutors say she had plastic surgery to change her appearance. Jurors deliberated for about two hours after two weeks of testimony before delivering their verdict.

Rescuers in Gaza don’t have the equipment to search properly for the living, let alone the dead. Every day, hundreds of people claw through tons of rubble with shovels and iron bars and their bare hands. They are looking for the bodies of loved ones killed in Israeli missile strikes. More than five weeks into Israel’s war against Hamas, some streets are now more like graveyards. U.N. humanitarian monitors say at least 2,700 people, including 1,500 children, are missing and believed buried under the rubble. More than 11,200 are dead.
