2. Taliban gunmen fired in the air to scatter protesters in the Afghan capital Kabul, witnesses said, as video showed scores scurrying to escape volleys of gunfire.

3. The leaders of a military coup in Guinea promised to set up a transitional government of national unity after ousting President Alpha Conde and dissolving his cabinet.

4. A statue of Confederate Civil War General Robert E. Lee that towers six stories over Richmond, Virginia, and was a centerpiece of protests over racial injustice, is coming down this week.
