We’re covering Attorney General William Barr’s dispute with congressional Democrats, the aftermath of the shooting at a California synagogue, and the results of Spain’s election.
William Barr is scheduled to appear before the House Judiciary Committee on Thursday to discuss the special counsel’s report, but he has said he will skip the session if the terms of the questioning aren’t changed.
Such a move would escalate the long-running feud between the White House and Congress over testimony and access to documents. The Democratic chairman of the committee, Representative Jerrold Nadler, said on Sunday that he would subpoena Mr. Barr if necessary.
The details: In addition to the usual questioning from lawmakers, Democrats want the attorney general to take questions from staff lawyers. Mr. Barr objects to that format, as well as to a plan for committee members to question him behind closed doors about redacted sections of the special counsel’s report.
What’s next: Negotiations are to continue today. Mr. Barr is set to testify before the Republican-led Senate Judiciary Committee the day before his scheduled House appearance.
The deadly attack at a synagogue near San Diego over the weekend was the latest reminder of a new reality for houses of worship, which, like schools, must prepare for mass shootings.
The police identified the attacker in Saturday’s shooting at the synagogue, Chabad of Poway, as John Earnest, 19. They said he had written a manifesto echoing the white supremacist views promoted by gunmen who attacked a synagogue in Pittsburgh last year and mosques in Christchurch, New Zealand, in March.
Quotable: “We can disagree about all sorts of important things, even ultimate things, but surely every person ought to agree that no one should be gunned down in worship,” said Russell Moore, the president of the Ethics and Religious Liberty Commission of the Southern Baptist Convention.
A newly revealed memo, dated 12 days before a series of suicide bombings on Easter Sunday, warned the country’s police chief of an imminent terrorist attack.
The memo adds to a growing paper trail of detailed warnings that cast doubt on President Maithripala Sirisena’s claims that he did not know the attack was coming.
The Islamic State has claimed responsibility for the attack, and, since the bombings, anti-Muslim feeling has been rising across Sri Lanka. Today, Mr. Sirisena banned “all forms of clothing that cover a person’s face and prevents them from being identified.”
Catch up: The Islamic State said its fighters were among those killed in a raid in eastern Sri Lanka that left 15 dead and that wounded the wife and child of Zaharan Hashim, who is believed to have been behind the bombings.
Go deeper: Kattankudy is one of the few predominantly Muslim towns in Buddhist-majority Sri Lanka. It’s where Mr. Zaharan preached his divisive ideology.
The Alabama Department of Corrections is set to unveil a plan to improve its prison system, which was the subject of a horrifying report issued by the Department of Justice this month.
The report included accounts of prisoners who were tortured, burned, raped and murdered in largely unsupervised dorms. Three corrections officers have been attacked and at least one inmate has been stabbed since the report was issued.
The Times asked three men sentenced to life without parole and one serving a 28-year sentence to tell us what it’s like inside. Read excerpts from their letters.
Background: The report underscored the conditions depicted in more than 2,000 photographs, sent to The Times, of violent incidents and contraband inside the St. Clair Correctional Facility, northeast of Birmingham.If you have 5 minutes, this is worth itGrandmothers learning to read
As the birthrate plummets in South Korea, rural schools are emptying. One welcomed women who have wanted to learn to read for decades.
Hwang Wol-geum, 70, cried tears of joy when she started classes last month: “I couldn’t believe this was actually happening to me,” she said. “Carrying a school bag has always been my dream.” Ms. Hwang, above left, is pictured with her classmates Kim Mae-ye, 64, and Park Jong-sim, 75.
Election in Spain: The Socialist Party has strengthened its hold on the country’s government after the third national election since 2015. An anti-immigration and ultranationalist party called Vox won its first seats in Parliament.
Ouster at Guantánamo: Rear Adm. John Ring, the commander of the U.S. prison at Guantánamo Bay, Cuba, has been fired seven weeks before he was to leave the job.
Seattle crane crash: The tech boom has filled the city with construction cranes, one of which collapsed over the weekend, killing four people.
Times apology: The New York Times has apologized for an anti-Semitic cartoon published last week in the Opinion pages of its international edition.
Snapshot: Above, hazelnuts drying in northern Turkey, which grows about 70 percent of the world’s supply. They end up in Nutella spread and candy made by Nestlé and Godiva, but the crop has been notorious for its workplace hazards and hardships.
In memoriam: Richard Lugar represented Indiana in the Senate for 36 years, one of few senators in modern history with substantial influence on America’s international relations. He died on Sunday at 87.
“Game of Thrones”: The Battle of Winterfell. That’s all we’ll say here. Read our recap of Episode 3.
What we’re reading: This article in The Colorado Sun. Gina Lamb, a Special Sections editor, writes: “As a longtime typewriter owner (and former Colorado resident), I was delighted by this piece about Darwin Raymond, who has cared for all kinds of typewriters on the state’s Western Slope for decades — including a 60-pounder with a three-foot-long carriage, a purse-size portable and an IBM Selectric that Hunter S. Thompson blew apart with a shotgun.”Now, a break from the news

Listen: For some time, Bruce Springsteen has been mentioning an album that harks back to 1970s Southern California. “Hello Sunshine” is the first sample of that album.
Smarter Living: If buying a used car makes you want to pull your hair out, you’re not alone. There are a few key things to remember. Know what you need, not what you want. Review whether leasing or financing makes sense for you. Lastly, know the difference between a certified pre-owned car and a lemon.
And if you find a lost phone, return it the right way.
If you’re feeling footloose today, there may be a reason: April 29 is International Dance Day, so proclaimed by the performing arts partner of Unesco 37 years ago.
Why this date? It’s the birthday of Jean-Georges Noverre (1727-1810), a choreographer and dance theorist who invented the “ballet d’action,” a forerunner of the evening-length story ballet. (Think “Swan Lake” and “Giselle.”)
Before Noverre, ballets amounted to spectacular entertainments. He revolutionized the art by introducing pantomime and the idea that a dance could tell stories.
Early in his career, Noverre also had the distinction of serving as dancing instructor to the young Archduchess Marie Antoinette in Vienna, before her departure for France.
According to Antonia Fraser, whose biography of Marie Antoinette became the basis of Sofia Coppola’s 2006 biopic, the future queen was an apt pupil, admired for her graceful port de bras and elegant bearing.
Her friendship with Noverre helped his career, until the French Revolution. He escaped the guillotine and lived until 1810 in the Paris suburb of St.-Germain-en-Laye.
That’s it for this briefing. See you next time.
