In this undated photo made available in May 2015 by the Mission Prehistorique au Kenya - West Turkana Archaeological Project, Sonia Harmand and Jason Lewis hold stone tools found in the West Turkana area of Kenya. The artifacts, dated at 3.3 million years old, are much older than the earliest known trace of our own branch of the evolutionary family tree. So it’s a new challenge to the traditional idea that only members of our branch made stone tools. The discovery was reported in the journal Nature on Wednesday, May 20, 2015. (MPK-WTAP via AP)

“It really absolutely moves the beginnings of human technology back into a much more distant past, and a much different kind of ancestor than we’ve been thinking of,” said anthropology professor Alison Brooks of George Washington University, who has examined some of the tools.

“The president’s plan isn’t working. It’s time for him to come up with overarching strategy to defeat the ongoing terrorist threat,” House Speaker John Boehner said.

FILE - In this Nov. 8, 2005 file photo, firefighters work to extinguish burning cars set on fire by rioters in Gentilly, south of Paris, France. Two young boys were electrocuted in a power substation in Clichy-sous-Bois, while hiding from police on Oct. 27, 2005. A court in western France rules on whether two police officers contributed to the deaths of two teens in 2005, in an accident that sparked three weeks of national riots by largely minority youth angry at bleak job prospects and entrenched discrimination. Tensions between housing project youths and France’s largely white police force haven’t abated 10 years later. The boys’ families and neighbors want the police held unaccountable, but even prosecutors say they don’t have enough evidence and requested acquittal. (AP Photo/Michel Spingler, File)
