A Maryland man blames post-traumatic stress from his overseas military service for impelling him to tweet an animated GIF intended to trigger an epileptic seizure in a North Texas Newsweek reporter.
Federal officials arrested 29-year-old John Rayne Rivello, of Salisbury, Maryland, on Friday on an interstate domestic violence charge.
By Monday, the U.S Department of Justice and a Dallas grand jury had issued indictments against Rivello. As NBC News reports, the grand jury's indictment refers to the GIF, or Graphic Interchange Format, as "a deadly weapon."
In the year since suicide bombings ripped through the Brussels airport and subway, those affected have found themselves fighting to be recognized as victims, battling for compensation, and dealing with insurance bureaucracy like seeking three price estimates for a prosthetic limb.
The attacks killed 32 people and wounded more than 300; a year on, some 900 people now count themselves as victims and are seeking compensation. They include family members of those killed and wounded and people traumatized by the events of that day.
"We feel like we have to get down on our knees, those of us who still have them, to say 'Help us,'" said Philippe Vansteenkiste, whose sister Fabienne was killed at Brussels Zaventem airport. He is now leading efforts to get the government to help people be recognized as victims and deal with inheritance tax fights and tangled insurance claims.

In two successive revelations delivered on Monday, FBI director James Comey confirmed in a testimony before the House Intelligence Committee that his federal agency is investigating the 2016 Trump campaign's possible ties to Russia and that there is no evidence of Obama wiretapping Trump Tower before or after the election.
Comey, who 11 days before the November election called for a re-examination of Hillary Clinton's email server, was blamed by some Democrats for their nominee's loss to President Donald Trump.
But before being thrust into the spotlight, the 56-year-old and father of five had a long career as a federal prosecutor.

Two paintings by Vincent van Gogh that were stolen in a smash-and-grab heist more than 14 years ago went back on display Tuesday at the Amsterdam museum dedicated to the Dutch master.
"They're back!" said Van Gogh Museum director Axel Rueger, calling their return one of the "most special days in the history of our museum."
The paintings, the 1882 "View of the Sea at Scheveningen," and 1884-85 work "Congregation leaving the Reformed Church in Nuenen," were discovered last year by Italian police investigating suspected Italian mobsters for cocaine trafficking.
The U.S. and British governments, citing unspecified threats, are barring passengers on some international flights from mostly Middle Eastern and North African countries from bringing laptops, tablets, electronic games and other devices on board in carry-on bags.
Passengers flying to the United States from 10 airports in eight countries will be allowed only cellphones and smartphones in the passenger cabins, senior Trump administration officials said. Larger electronic items must be checked.
The British security rules will affect flights from six countries and will bar passengers from taking "any phones, laptops or tablets larger than a normal sized mobile or smartphone," into the cabin.
Canadian authorities on Tuesday reported a surge of asylum seekers crossing illegally from the U.S. in the first two months of the year. The new statistics show that the total remains small, but the number of people detained is growing and is nearly half of the illegal entries reported in all of 2016.
The Royal Canadian Mounted Police intercepted 476 border crossers nationwide in January and 658 in February for a total of 1,134 during Canada's two coldest months. Most of the crossings came in Quebec, Manitoba and British Columbia. Immigration Department statistics show 2,464 were apprehended in 2016.
Some refugees have said they wanted to come north due to fears that asylum will be harder to obtain in the United States under President Donald Trump, citing anti-Muslim campaign rhetoric.

This pair of high school cross country runners went for a run on their first date, so it stands to reason that Joran Fuller's creative prom proposal to Claire Short would be inspired by their love of the sport.
Fuller, a 17-year-old junior, asked Short to the dance by telling her to open an activity-tracking app on her phone, "Today" reported. She found his latest run, called "Hey Claire," spelled out "Prom?" through the streets of Findlay, Ohio, leaving her ecstatic.
“Each promposal is thoughtful in its own way, but Joran’s was definitely very special to me,” Short, a 16-year-old sophomore, told "Today."
She shared the gesture on Twitter, writing, "But did your prom date run 5.5 miles to ask you." It went viral, with over 100,000 likes and almost 17,000 retweets.

Fewer babies are dying in the United States than a decade ago, according to NBC News.
The U.S. infant mortality rate, which is higher than in other developed countries, is down 15 percent over the last 10 years, federal researchers reported Tuesday.
"Infant mortality is considered a basic measure of public health for countries around the world," wrote Anne Driscoll and T.J. Mathews of the National Center for Health Statistics, part of the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention.
Researchers pointed to a high teenage pregnancy rate in the U.S. compared to other countries as one of several factors behind the comparatively high rate of babies dying. Teenagers are more likely to have small and premature babies.

White House press secretary Sean Spicer said Tuesday that a Maryland rape case, in which an 18-year-old with a pending immigration case is charged with assaulting a 14-year-old girl, is an example of why President Donald Trump is making illegal immigration a priority.
Henry E. Sanchez, 18, and Jose O. Montano, 17, are charged with raping the girl in a bathroom stall during school hours at Rockville High School in the D.C. suburbs Thursday, Montgomery County police said.
Breast implants can cause a rare form of cancer that may have killed at least nine people, the Food and Drug Administration said Tuesday, NBC News reported.
The cancer is called anaplastic large cell lymphoma (ALCL) and the FDA is checking into more than 350 reports linking it with both silicone and saline breast implants.
ALCL, which is a type of non-Hodgkin's lymphoma, can take about 10 years to develop on average after the implant first goes in and usually stays in the area right around the implant, World Health Organization researchers reported last year in the journal Blood. But it can break out and spread.
"All of the information to date suggests that women with breast implants have a very low but increased risk of developing ALCL compared to women who do not have breast implants," the FDA said in a statement.
