* More than 1,000 people have been injured after panic erupted among football fans who were watching the Champions League final at a square in the Italian city of Turin.

* Dozens of civilians have been shot dead while trying to flee an ISIS-held neighborhood in the Iraqi city of Mosul. The humanitarian group FBR said at least 50 people had been killed and 30 others are injured, though survivors said dozens more had been shot. The group was able to rescue a wounded man and a little girl who was hiding underneath her dead mother's hijab. Photos from the scene showed dozens of dead bodies.

* The gunman who set fires inside a casino in Manila on Friday has been identified as a 43-year-old gambling addict who was $80,000 in debt. The Filipino man - who tried to steal chips worth millions of dollars - previously worked for the Finance Department but had no links to terrorism, despite a claim from ISIS. Smoke from the fires killed 37 people and the suspect later committed suicide inside one of the hotel rooms at the resort.
