For two years and more, it has been a lost ship, a metal container carrying 239 souls that simply disappeared late one night, never to be seen again. And now, the search for the remains of Malaysia Airlines Flight 370 likely will become a thing of memory, too.
With Friday's announcement that the meticulous ocean search for the missing jetliner will be suspended — in effect, called off — one of this decade's most tantalizing unanswered questions is headed toward becoming, in effect, a cold case.
Several hundred Bernie Sanders supporters and other demonstrators marched down Philadelphia's sweltering Broad Street on the opening day of the Democratic convention Monday, chanting "Nominate Sanders or lose in November!" and "Hey, hey, ho, ho, the DNC has got to go!" The marchers made their way from City Hall toward the convention hall, 4 miles away in south Philadelphia. As the crowd near the convention hall grew during the evening, demonstrators began pressing against police barriers. Police moved metal fences into place and closed the nearest subway station to arriving trains. Over a dozen people affiliated with the group Democracy Spring were arrested outside the Wells Fargo Center after the group attempted what it called a non-violent sit-in, according to NBC News.
WikiLeaks founder Julian Assange told NBC News on Monday "there is no proof whatsoever" that his organization got almost 20,000 hacked Democratic National Committee emails from Russian intelligence — adding it's what's in the emails that's important, not who got them.
Three cybersecurity experts have told NBC News that the DNC's servers were hacked by Russian intelligence. But Assange said Monday that DNC servers have been riddled with security holes for years and that many sets of documents from multiple sources are now in public hands, NBC News reported.

Though the Democratic convention is Hillary Clinton's party, President Barack Obama could be the most important figure in the presidential contest between now and Election Day, NBC News reports.
Obama, who is speaking at the convention Wednesday night, is the only outgoing incumbent president since Ronald Reagan who has been popular enough to benefit his party's nominee.
Obama's job-approval rating is at 51 percent in the latest NBC News/Wall Street Journal — the third-straight NBC/WSJ survey where his approval has been above 50 percent.
Despite the president's high approval ratings, Republicans want to use the negative news at home and abroad — the terrorist attacks in Orlando and France, and the police shootings in Dallas and Baton Rouge — against the party in charge of the White House.

Hundreds of law enforcement officers from around the country streamed past the casket Monday of a slain Baton Rouge police officer, some solemnly saluting and others making the sign of the cross as they paid their respects and mourned one of their own.
Montrell Jackson, slain by a gunman who authorities said targeted law enforcement, is the last of the three Louisiana law enforcement officers killed in last week's ambush to be buried.
A shooting outside a Fort Myers, Florida, nightclub hosting a swimsuit-themed party for teens, left two teens dead and 17 people wounded early Monday, authorities said.
It was not immediately clear what triggered the violence, but Fort Myers police Capt. Jim Mulligan said the shooting was not an act of terror. Police detained three people and said the area around Club Blu had been deemed safe, Mulligan said.
The two teens killed were 14-year-old Sean Archilles and 18-year-old Stef'an Strawder, police said. Archilles lived about a mile from the nightclub, said his father, Jean Archilles.
Former Chicago Bulls and NBA star Michael Jordan said Monday he "can no longer stay silent" about the shooting deaths of black Americans at the hands of police officers, as well as the recent "cowardly and hateful" targeting of law enforcement.
In an op-ed for sports and culture website The Undefeated, Jordan announced two major contributions to organizations he believes can make a positive change.
He used the ESPN-owned website to reveal his donation of $1 million each to the NAAPC's Legal Defense Fund and the International Association of Chiefs of Police's Institute for Community-Police Relations.
