Statement on the reported defaced LGBT posters at CERN

As first reported by Physics World, CERN had to deal with defaced posters of the LGBT (lesbian, gay, bisexual and transgender) group. CERN considers that these acts are unacceptable. They were strongly and publicly condemned.

Homophobic behaviour at CERN is not tolerated.  Disciplinary actions against people identified to have such behaviour have been taken and will be taken again as needed.

Update on ATLAS and CMS latest results

The ATLAS and CMS experiments at CERN are taking a very cautionary position concerning a measurement that deviates slightly from what would be expected from known physics. Studying events containing two photons and assuming that these photons originate from the decay of a massive particle, both experiments see a small excess in the mass region of 750-760 GeV. The same analyses were also carried out on the data from the first LHC run and, within the statistics available, did not yield a sizable excess over the expectations from standard physics processes.
