4. United States Supreme Court has voted to overturn abortion rights, draft opinion shows

The Supreme Court has voted to strike down the landmark Roe v. Wade decision, according to an initial draft majority opinion written by Justice Samuel Alito circulated inside the court. The draft opinion is a full-throated overturn of the 1973 decision which guaranteed federal constitutional protections of abortion rights and a subsequent 1992 decision – Planned Parenthood v. Casey – that largely maintained the right. Deliberations on controversial cases have in the past been fluid. Justices can and sometimes do change their votes as draft opinions circulate and major decisions can be subject to multiple drafts and vote-trading, sometimes until just days before a decision is unveiled.

The court’s holding will not be final until it is published, likely in the next two months. The immediate impact of the ruling as drafted in February would be to end a half-century guarantee of federal constitutional protection of abortion rights and allow each state to decide whether to restrict or ban abortion. It’s unclear if there have been subsequent changes to the draft.

5. Senegal punished by FIFA after Salah laser-pointing incident & crowd trouble in World Cup play-off win over Egypt

FIFA have handed out punishments to Senegal on the back of a World Cup play-off clash with Egypt that saw Mohamed Salah targeted by lasers in the stands as he stepped up in a penalty shootout. The Liverpool forward fluffed his lines from the spot, as the Pharaohs saw their Qatar 2022 dreams dashed in Dakar, and there had been calls for the second leg of a heavyweight African encounter to be replayed. World football’s governing body has not taken things that far, with Senegal still heading to a global showpiece in the Middle East later this year, but sanctions are being put in place.

FIFA has fined Senegal’s football federation $180,000 as a result of the fan disorder which marred an otherwise memorable evening for the Lions of Teranga. That decision has been made after seeing Salah forced to take a penalty while blinding green lights were shone in his direction. FIFA’s disciplinary panel has also looked into a pitch invasion from Senegal supporters after Sadio Mane converted the decisive spot-kick in their shootout with Egypt.

An offensive banner has also been investigated, with Senegalese authorities accused of “failure to ensure that law and order are maintained in the stadium.” A combination of all those misdemeanors has resulted in the Senegal national team being ordered to play one future fixture behind closed doors.
