Stabbings, fights at rally

At least seven people were stabbed Sunday when counter-protesters clashed with members of right-wing extremist groups that planned to hold a rally outside the state Capitol, authorities said. California Highway Patrol Officer George Granada said about 30 members of the Traditionalist Worker Party were gathering for a rally around noon Sunday when they were met by about 400 counter-protesters and a fight broke out. As people tried to leave the area, smaller fights broke out, Granada said. No arrests had been made as of Sunday afternoon. Sacramento Fire Department spokesman Chris Harvey said many other people had cuts and bruises.

‘Dory’ swims in fast lane

The Finding Dory tidal wave overwhelmed Independence Day: Resurgence, as the alien-invasion redux was drowned out by the popular Pixar release in North American theaters. In its second week, Finding Dory remained on top with $73.2 million, according to studio estimates Sunday. That far surpassed the $41.6 million opening of Resurgence, which debuted well off the pace of its 1996 original. The Blake Lively shark thriller The Shallows rode a wave of good reviews to a better-than-expected $16.7 million for Sony.
