S. Carolina Removes Rebel Flag

South Carolina Gov. Nikki Haley on Thursday signed a bill to remove the controversial Confederate flag from the statehouse in Columbia, 50 years after it first went up in protest of civil rights reform across the South. The state planned a ceremony at 10 a.m. local time on Friday to remove the rebel banner, AP reported.
