The Islamic State militant group released a video Tuesday that it claimed shows the beheading of American journalist Steven Sotloff.
Critical domestic violence bills sailed through the Senate Tuesday. One of them bans people convicted of domestic abuse from possessing a gun for a decade.

The bills head back to the House.
