Attacks by US extremists lead to push for anti-terror laws SALEM, Oregon (AP) — A white man opens fire at a Walmart in El Paso, Texas, targeting Mexicans and killing 22 people. Another man kills 11 Jewish worshippers at a synagogue in Pittsburgh. The two mass shootings and a presidential tweet put a spotlight on the idea of "domestic terrorism," adding momentum to a debate about whether such attacks should be classified and tried in the same way as crimes against America by foreign terrorist groups and their supporters.

The company says both have helped. Inditex’s total sales grew 7% to €12.8 billion ($14.1 billion) in the six months through July, a rebound from the 3% it recorded during the same period last year, at the time marking Inditex’s slowest sales growth in more than a decade.

Currency effects are one issue, and one analyst pointed to weak full-price sales. It somewhat overshadowed the uptick in sales as analysts wonder how Zara can improve its profitability.
