Seven national fast-food chains have agreed to end policies that block workers from changing branches — limiting their wages and job opportunities — under the threat of legal action from the state of Washington.
Washington Attorney General Bob Ferguson announced binding agreements with the companies — McDonald's, Auntie Anne's, Arby's, Carl's Jr., Jimmy John's, Cinnabon and Buffalo Wild Wings — at a news conference Thursday. McDonald's had previously announced plans to end the practice.
The so-called no-poach policies prevent franchises from hiring workers away from other franchises of the same chain. That's been considered convenient for franchise owners, but has blocked experienced workers at one franchise from getting better-paying jobs at others, potentially keeping tens of thousands of employees around the country stuck in low-wage positions.
A newly opened shopping mall on Mexico City's south side partly collapsed Thursday after structural problems apparently led the mall's operators to evacuate the area, and no injuries were reported.
Videos posted on social media show a cantilevered, multi-story section of the mall collapsing in a cloud of dust and twisted metal on Thursday. Some of it fell into lanes of a major freeway, which had been closed shortly before the collapse.

Talk about a paleo diet. Scientists have uncovered the last meal of a frozen hunter who died 5,300 years ago in the Alps.
The stomach contents of the corpse, widely known as Oetzi the Iceman, offer a snapshot of what ancient Europeans ate more than five millennia ago, researchers said.
On the menu, described Thursday in the journal Current Biology, were the fat and meat of a wild goat, meat of a red deer and whole wheat seeds, which Oetzi ate shortly before his death.
In a heated exchange, U.S. Rep. Louis Gohmert, R-Texas, on Thursday invoked FBI Agent Peter Strzok's marriage. Strzok has admitted to having an extramarital affair with Lisa Page.
One American service member was killed in combat in eastern Afghanistan on Thursday, the U.S. military said.
The service member's identity was being withheld pending notification of family members, and the U.S. command in Kabul released no details about the incident. In addition to their support for Afghan forces fighting the Taliban, U.S. forces are combatting extremist groups in eastern Afghanistan, mainly the Islamic State group's Afghanistan affiliate in the province of Nangarhar.
The U.S. military said one Afghan security force member also was killed and several were wounded in Thursday's incident.

The Justice Department will appeal the AT&T-Time Warner merger approval, according to a court document filed Thursday.
Shares of AT&T slipped 1 percent in after-hours trading Thursday.
In June, a federal judge ruled that the $85.4 billion deal was legal and imposed no conditions on the merger.
At the time, the Justice Department expressed its disappointment with the ruling. The government argued that the deal would make the pay-TV market "less competitive and less innovative."

Consumers who ask the Federal Communications Commission to investigate complaints against broadband providers would be charged $225 — possibly more than the amount in dispute — under a proposal the FCC is voting on Thursday, NBC News reported.
The proposal is expected to pass the Republican-controlled commission, though the lone Democrat called it "bonkers" while two congressional Democrats said it runs counter to the FCC's mission of working for consumers.
Thousands of consumer complaints on things like billing and poor internet service are submitted to the FCC each year. The commission typically passes complaints along, but if the new process passes, it will only follow up on disputes if the person making the complaint goes through a formal process that comes with a $225 filing fee.

The federal government has reopened its investigation into the slaying of Emmett Till, the black teenager whose brutal killing in Mississippi shocked the world and helped inspire the civil rights movement more than 60 years ago.
The Justice Department told Congress in a report in March it is reinvestigating Till's slaying in Money, Mississippi, in 1955 after receiving "new information." The case was closed in 2007 with authorities saying the suspects were dead; a state grand jury didn't file any new charges.
Deborah Watts, a cousin of Till, said she was unaware the case had been reopened until contacted by The Associated Press on Wednesday.

In a chaotic 28 hours at NATO, President Donald Trump disparaged longtime allies, cast doubt on his commitment to the mutual-defense organization and sent the 29-member pact into frenzied emergency session. Then, in a head-snapping pivot at the end, on Thursday he declared the alliance a "fine-tuned machine" that had acceded to his demands to speed up increases in military spending.
Trump claimed member nations had agreed to significantly boost their defense budgets and reaffirmed — after days of griping that the U.S. was being taken advantage of by its allies — that the U.S. remains faithful to the accord. "The United States' commitment to NATO remains very strong," Trump told reporters at a surprise news conference following an emergency session of NATO members held to address his threats.
There were no immediate specifics on what Trump said he had achieved, and French President Emmanuel Macron quickly disputed Trump's claim that NATO allies had agreed to boost defense spending beyond their existing goal of 2 percent of gross domestic product.

Sarah Hirshland is known as the tough negotiator who helped the U.S. Golf Association broker media and sponsorship deals, including its 12-year TV contract with Fox.
Her next job, as CEO of the U.S. Olympic Committee, will be a more delicate task — repairing a frayed relationship with athletes and a community that has grown wary of the governing body after a slew of sex-abuse cases they feel were not handled appropriately.
The USOC announced the USGA's chief commercial officer as the new CEO on Thursday. She'll replace Scott Blackmun, who resigned earlier this year to deal with health issues that undercut his ability to deal with the sex-abuse crisis that engulfed the federation.
Immigrant parents who reveled after joyful reunions with their young children spoke Wednesday of the traumatic impact of being separated from their sons and daughters for months after they were taken from them at the U.S. border.
The administration has been scrambling to reunify the families this week to meet the first of two deadlines set by a federal judge in San Diego who ordered thousands of children be given back to their immigrant parents. Scores of children separated from their families were sent to government-contracted shelters or foster care hundreds of miles away from where their parents were detained.
