An unannounced visitor arrived at the site of the G7 summit in France today, Iran's foreign minister. NPR's Frank Langfitt reports Mohammed Javad Zarif flew in for talks with the French about the stalemate over Iran's nuclear program.

The G7 host and French President Manuel Macron seemed to have sprung this on fellow world leaders. French newspapers say President Trump was only told about it on Saturday. Trump pulled out of the Iran nuclear deal last year and the US has Iran under crippling sanctions. For his part, Macron reportedly tried to find a way to soften sanctions, reduce the tensions with the Americans. With German Chancellor Angela Merkel on the way out and the United Kingdom leaving the European Union, Macron seems to be trying to fill the leadership vacuum in the West. The Iranians say they had no plan to meet with US delegation. As about Zarif's visit today. Trump said no comment. Frank Langfitt, NPR News, Biarritz.

President Trump had breakfast with British Prime Minister Boris Johnson in the first meeting between the two men since Johnson took over as UK leader. Trump expressed his support for Johnson personally and for concluding a trade deal after Britain's scheduled departure from the European Union on October 1st. Trump also acknowledged having a second thought about earlier threats to further increase tariffs on Chinese goods. "I have no plan right now. Actually, we are getting along very well with China right now. We are talking." A Whitehouse aid later said Trump's second thoughts were about not implementing higher penalties already. Johnson told Trump he doesn't favour tariffs, a position shared by other European leaders who are concerned about the impact a US-China escalation will have on the global economy.

Authorities in Los Angeles say a sheriff's deputy lied when he claimed he was shot in the shoulder while standing in a parking lot of the station last week. Angel Reynosa claims led to an urgent manhunt during which schools and residents were ordered to be locked out. The search came up empty and Reynosa admitted he made it all up. Assistant sheriff Kent Wegener says deputy Angel Reynos is now facing a criminal investigation. "Reynos failed to provide information regarding his motivation for this act, the incident investigation is ongoing, and when concluded, it will be presented to the District Attorney's Office for filing consideration." The 21-year-old has been relieved of his duties, but civil rights advocates want him arrested and prosecuted. The head of the project Islamic Hopes says the deputy has to be held accountable for his actions.
