Three American sailors were assaulted in Istanbul on Wednesday in what the United States is calling an “action that disrespects Turkey’s reputation for hospitality.”

Video emerged showing the sailors being pelted with paint and shoved by the attackers, before a plastic bag is placed over one of their heads.

The U.S. Embassy in Turkey responded to the video, saying that the treatment of the three sailors was “appalling.”

The percentage of babies delivered by cesarean section in the United States has increased dramatically over the past several decades, but that trend is now reversing, according to a new report from the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention.

Researchers looked at the rates of low-risk c-sections between 1990 and 2013 and found that, though one-third of all babies born in the U.S. are still delivered via c-section each year, the frequency of this mode of delivery is declining in most parts of the U.S. Generally, “low-risk” c-sections are those done in situations when a vaginal birth would have posed a relatively low risk to the mother and baby’s health; high-risk c-sections are those done out of greater medical necessity.
