In our news wrap Monday, the UN's nuclear watchdog raised new concerns about Iran's violations of its 2015 nuclear deal. Inspectors discovered manmade uranium particles that Tehran hadn't previously declared. Also, Turkey has begun sending captured foreign members of the Islamic State back to their home countries. The Turkish government estimates some 1200 ISIS fighters were imprisoned there.
Anti-government protests in Hong Kong erupted into chaos Monday, leaving two people critically injured. One person was shot at close range by police, while separately, a China supporter was set on fire. Hong Kong's leader, Carrie Lam, vowed to "spare no effort" to end the violent demonstrations that have gripped the semi-autonomous Chinese territory for five months. Judy Woodruff reports.
Bolivia, South America's poorest country, is politically divided -- and currently without a leader. President Evo Morales announced on state television Sunday that he was the victim of a coup and thus was resigning. But his political opponents contend he was a dictator who eventually succumbed to the powers of democracy. Nick Schifrin reports on how Bolivia is facing a government reconstruction.
Additional closed-door deposition transcripts from the impeachment inquiry were released Monday. Laura Cooper, deputy assistant secretary at the Department of Defense, testified during her appearance that her colleagues questioned whether aid appropriated by Congress for Ukraine could legally be frozen by President Trump. Yamiche Alcindor and Lisa Desjardins join Judy Woodruff to discuss.
Mentioned frequently in transcripts from closed-door testimonies in the impeachment inquiry, Rudy Giuliani stands at the center of the saga over President Trump's Ukraine policy. Giuliani is now the president's personal lawyer, but he first entered the national spotlight as New York's tough-on-crime mayor -- and later, a consoling figure amid the grief of September 11th. Yamiche Alcindor reports.
NPR's Tamara Keith and Amy Walter of the Cook Political Report join Judy Woodruff to discuss the latest political news, including whether open hearings could change Americans' minds about impeachment, implications for Joe Biden's presidential campaign, the potential entry of Michael Bloomberg into the Democratic race, Sen. Amy Klobuchar's comments about standards for female politicians and more.
On Tuesday, the Supreme Court will hear arguments that could decide the fate of some 700,000 "Dreamers," members of a younger generation of undocumented immigrants brought to the United States as children. They are currently protected from deportation by an executive order that President Barack Obama put in place in 2012, but that President Donald Trump has sought to cancel. Amna Nawaz reports.
Americans have been drawn to rural areas in recent years partly due to the appeal of a higher quality of life. These regions have not traditionally been known as art hubs, but some residents say that trend is changing. Jeffrey Brown reports from northern Minnesota, where artists and community leaders are fighting the national narrative of rural America in decline.
Across the country, Americans paid tribute on Monday to members of the U.S. Armed Forces, who put their own comfort and wellbeing at risk to defend their country. Here are a selection of the commemorations and observances.
More than 3,000 undocumented migrants have died in Arizona during the last 20 years while trying to cross into the U.S. from Mexico, spurring the formation of aid groups along the border that aim to prevent the humanitarian crisis. Now, some aid workers are facing criminal charges due to renewed enforcement of harboring laws that say good Samaritans are breaking the law. Ivette Feliciano reports.
