Mississippi governor signs law to remove flag with Confederate emblem

Mississippi Gov. Tate Reeves (R) on Tuesday signed a bill immediately retiring the flag of the state that includes the flag of the Confederacy sewn into it. The signing caps a swift referendum on the 126-year-old flag from the Mississippi state Legislature. The flag had come under scrutiny amid protests against racial injustice that have focused attention on Confederate symbols in recent weeks.
