- Community College of Philadelphia announced that it will repay more than $1.4 million in outstanding balances. The payment will help around 1,900 students who have struggled to repay their loans. The money comes from HEERF funds included in the US bailout. Last July, the College made a similar payment of $2.75 million in outstanding balances for nearly 3,500 students. (AL DIA News)
- City authorities are considering a 10 p.m. curfew for children aged 14 to 17. The bill was presented to city council on June 16 and would go into effect this summer until September 29. The measure was introduced in an effort to reduce gun violence in Philadelphia. As of June 19, about 230 people have died from gun violence in Philadelphia. (AL DIA News)
- A Philippine government lawyer was shot and killed on Sunday on his way to Philadelphia airport. Police say the victim was 36-year-old John Albert Laylo.

Laylo had previously worked as a legislative staffer for an opposition senator in the Philippines before undertaking graduate studies. (CBS News)
