  • Great Britain lowered its security threat level from “critical” to “severe” on Saturday, Prime Minister Theresa May said. >> Read more trending news Earlier, police hunting a suspected network behind Salman Abedi, the bomber who killed 22 people on Monday night during a concert in Manchester, said they had made two further arrests overnight as they closed in on other possible cell members, Reuters reported.  As a result, soldiers who have been assisting police would be withdrawn from Britain's streets at midnight on Monday. 'A significant amount of police activity has taken place over the last 24 hours and there are now 11 suspects in custody,' May said. May cautioned, however, that the lesser threat is still a dangerous one. 'The public should be clear about what this means. A threat level of severe means an attack is highly likely,” she said. “The country should remain vigilant.' The threat assessment has returned to the level it was at prior to the Manchester attack. In Manchester, events planned around the spring bank holiday will go ahead with additional security, including a significant number of armed officers, police said. British officers do not usually carry guns, CNN reported. Events include the Manchester Games, the Great Manchester Run, and a stadium show by bands including The Courteeners, all of which are likely to attract big crowds. This weekend also marks the start of Ramadan, the holiest month of the Muslim calendar, CNN reported.    
  • A Cobb County mother was jailed after her 5-year-old son said she beat him with a belt and a broom, hit him in the head and stomped on his stomach. Nakeisha Lashay Logan of Mableton faces first-degree child cruelty, battery and family violence charges in connection with an alleged May 17 attack. The boy, whose name was not released because he is a juvenile victim, said during a forensic interview that he tried to hide under the bed to avoid the “terrible” beating but Logan beat him with a broom and threw a box of toys at him, a magistrate court warrant states.

His face was still red and swollen, Officer Sydney Tschappat wrote. Police took the boy to a nearby hospital and arrested Logan. She was being held in the Cobb County Adult Detention Center on a $50,000 bond. In other news:
  • Police say a metro Atlanta couple locked the woman's 86-year-old mother in her room and used furniture to block the door closed. Katie Son and her husband are both charged with cruelty to an elderly person. Officers say 86-year-old Bong Le managed to escape out a front window. She was found a couple of blocks away, wrapped in a blanket and sitting under a tree. Investigators say she smelled like urine and feces. Her daughter and son-in-law, who are now out on bond, told Channel 2's Tony Thomas that they were just trying to protect her from herself. 'Did you lock your mom up?' Thomas asked. 'No. No sir,' Son replied. Gwinnett police say they found tables, chairs and other items stacked high against the door of the downstairs bedroom in the home. 'It looked quite unusual,' Cpl. Michele Pihera said. But Son said it was all to keep her mother safe. She said when she and her husband went to work each day at a Hall County nail salon, her mother couldn't be trusted alone in the house. 'They told our officers that the reason they had stacked up the furniture was to prevent the mother from going into the kitchen to access the stove or access any kitchen utensils,' Pihera said.

'It's very possible they were trying to prevent her from getting into the food or any kind of items to eat,' Pihera said. She says the state of the room was disturbing. 'They found human feces and what looked like human urine that looked like it had been smeared into the carpet or never even cleaned up,' she said. She said that, combined with the furniture, led to the arrests. 'You combine the lack of access to food and water and the living conditions and that's what led our detectives to take out warrants for their arrests,' Pihera said. Neighbors didn't want to talk about what happened, but said they recognized Le as the woman who didn't really have a memory and would get lost easily. She's now in the hospital. Her daughter and son-in-law have been ordered not to go near her.
  • Pandora, an 'Avatar'-themed land in Disney's Animal Kingdom, opened to the public Saturday, with reported wait times for the two rides inside exceeding three hours. And that's for the people who have already been able to get in to the park. Disney has issued a warning through their app that as of 10:10 a.m., the wait time to enter the land was more than two hours. Matt Beiler, a producer for Walt Disney Imagineering, said that although the film is science fiction, he and his colleagues designed the land with a focus on realism. 'When I go to Africa, this is a real place in Africa,' he said. 'The same thing happens here when guests come here to Pandora. They are going to a real valley.' >> Read more trending news The resort's newest attraction brings the film to life with scenery inspired by the movie, including majestic waterfalls, boat rides down the fictional Na’vi River and a bioluminescent rainforest, which illuminates at night. 'From the moment you walk in, it's astonishing,' visitor Christian Rivera said. Park visitors will be made to feel as if they're walking among floating mountains and soaring on the back of a flying 'banshee,' a dragon-like creature featured in the movie. Park visitors will also be able to beat on drums at Pandora, and Satu’li Canteen serves a movie-inspired menu. 'Walt said, 'It's kind of fun to do the impossible,'' Beiler said. 'And that is what every Imagineer has at their core: They embrace the challenge.
  • The Latest on AP Fact Checks for the previous week (all times local): 5:45 p.m. President Donald Trump says the leader of the Philippines is doing a 'great job' combatting his country's drug problems. But an AP Fact Check finds those efforts come with harsh consequences, according Trump's own administration. Trump congratulated Philippine President Rodrigo Duterte in a phone call April 29 and praised him for 'the unbelievable job on the drug problem.' That's according to a transcript obtained by The Washington Post. Yet a State Department human rights report describes in harsh terms the thousands of killings by police and vigilantes of suspected Philippine drug dealers and users. The killings have been carried out without formal evidence or trials. That same report says Duterte released lists of suspected drug criminals. Some on those lists were killed. ___ 11 a.m. It's been a muted week for President Donald Trump when it comes to tweeting. But AP Fact Checks have spotted some tall tales in his rhetoric during his first foreign trip since taking office. For one, Trump claimed that fellow NATO members 'owe massive amounts of money' to the common defense. They don't. The actual issue is that the United States wants them to live up to their commitment to increase spending on their own military budgets by 2024.
  • Chase Anderson has a no-hitter through seven innings for the Milwaukee Brewers against the Arizona Diamondbacks on Saturday. The 29-year-old right-hander set a career best with 11 strikeouts but walked three while throwing a career-high 111 pitches. The Brewers lead 5-0. Arizona's best opportunity for a hit was when Jeff Mathis flied out to the warning track in the fifth. In the seventh, third baseman Travis Shaw fielded Rey Fuentes grounder and threw him out by two steps for the final out. Anderson was drafted by Arizona in 2009 and pitched for the Diamondbacks in 2014 and 2015 before Milwaukee acquired him in a trade last year.
