1. Gabby Petito, the young woman who vanished on a road trip with her boyfriend and later turned up dead in Wyoming, was killed by strangulation, a local coroner said.

2. Texas Governor Greg Abbott's ban on COVID-19 vaccine mandates will likely be superseded by the Biden administration's plan to require shots for workers, but the dueling rules could take months to sort out in court, creating uncertainty for employers with business in the state.

3. The Democratic-controlled U.S. House of Representatives gave final approval to legislation temporarily raising the government's borrowing limit to $28.9 trillion, pushing off the deadline for debt default only until December.

4. The United States will lift restrictions at its land borders with Canada and Mexico for fully vaccinated foreign nationals in early November, ending historic curbs on non-essential travelers in place since March 2020 to address the COVID-19 pandemic.

5. Over 700 residents were ordered to abandon their homes on the Spanish island of La Palma as red-hot lava advanced towards their neighborhood.
