1. Los Angeles unified school district shuts schools after bomb threat

 2. GOP debate focuses on terrorism threat

Republican presidential front-runner Donald Trump fiercely defended the most controversial proposal of his six-month campaign: temporarily banning all Muslims from entering the United States.
