Good morning! Today there are statements in two major lawsuits: one in the US, in the case about George Floyds death and one in The Hague in the Hümeyra case. And at the TT in Assen, the ninetieth edition of the multi-day motorcycle event begins.
In the west, the clouds prevail today and some rain may fall. In the east, it stays dry and the sun appears more often. It turns 18 to 23 degrees. In the next few days, it will be warmer with more than 25 degrees inland. Sun and clouds alternate and a local thunderstorm develops almost daily.

What did you miss?
Never before European Heads of Government have addressed each other as they did at this EU summit, said Prime Minister Rutte. In particular, the new Hungarian anti-gay law is being heavily debated.
Many EU leaders shared their disguise and outrage at the anti-lhbti law and appealed to Hungarian Prime Minister Orbán. Luxembourg Prime Minister Xavier Bettel shared his own experience in a “very emotional plea” what it was like to get out of the closet. “There were little dry eyes in the room at that time,” says Rutte.
The summit also talks about relations with Russia. There will be no meeting with Russian President Putin, but “should be sought for dialogue with Russia,” says Rutte.
Other news from the night
And then this:
A loose herd of cows has done great damage in a neighborhood in Southern California. The animals tried to escape their fate by breaking out of a slaughterhouse.
The runaway cows damaged cars and fences and created a chaos in traffic. They were chased with police cars and eventually caught with lassos.
Have a nice day!
