The world lost another great actor before his time. Oscar winner Robin Williams died Monday morning of an apparent suicide. He was 63. Five of his most memorable films.

Some in the racing industry are saying the death of 20-year-old Kevin Ward Jr. could prompt tracks to prohibit drivers from exiting their cars after a crash, as Ward did to confront Tony Stewart, the driver who pinned him against the wall at a race in New York and ultimately killed him.

A New York-based human rights group alleges Egypt committed crimes against humanity in the deaths of hundreds of protesters, many of whom supported deposed Islamist president Mohamed Morsi and his group, the Muslim Brotherhood.
