Polish President Andrzej Duda on Monday vetoed controversial judicial reforms that had prompted huge street protests and threats of unprecedented EU sanctions. The veto came as a surprise move from Duda, a close ally of the ruling rightwing Law and Justice (PiS) party that had pushed the reforms. Duda said he had made his decision after extensive consultations with legal experts at the weekend, when thousands of people took to the streets across Poland urging him to veto proposals that have led critics to accuse the government of threatening the rule of law.
On Aug. 21, the moon will block out the sun completely, as seen from the United States, following a narrow band across the country while the shadow of the moon moves from the west coast to the east. If you plan to watch the eclipse too, either by traveling to a place from where it is visible in its entirety, or by remaining where you are to see a partial eclipse (the partial eclipse will be visible from every state in the country), you should keep in mind some safety tips. NASA has offered a helpful list of things to do and not do for viewing the eclipse.

Donald Trump’s personal lawyer has taken to the airwaves to defend the President’s claim that he has the power to pardon himself from a crime. “Clearly the constitution does vest a plenary pardon power within the presidency,” attorney Jay Sekulow told ABC’s George Stephanopoulos, adding that it was not something the White House is considering currently. “Whether it applies to the president himself I think ultimately would be a matter for the court to decide, if it were ever to come into existence,” he continued.

Lava-like rocks believed to be melted nuclear fuel have been spotted inside Japan's stricken Fukushima reactor by an underwater robot, the plant's operator said at the end of a three-day inspection. Large amounts of the solidified lumps and deposit were spotted for the first time by the robot on the floor of the primary containment vessel underneath the core of Fukushima's No. 3 reactor, the Tokyo Electric Power Co (TEPCO) said. "There is a high possibility that the solidified objects are mixtures of melted metal and fuel that fell from the vessel," a TEPCO spokesman said, adding that the company was planning further analysis of the images.

Donald Trump Jr., Jared Kushner, and Paul Manafort have agreed to testify in front of Congress about Donald Trump’s campaign ties to Russia–but only behind closed doors. The move by President Trump’s son, son-in-law and former campaign manager has drawn criticism from Democrats who say that it is example of another effort to stymie progress of the Russian probe. Mark Osler, a law professor at the University of St. Thomas and a former federal prosecutor, says that their requests to testify in private–which were granted as part of an agreement with the Senate and House intelligence committees–are likely because they are going to discuss classified information and want to reduce the publicity surrounding the hearings.

The site west of Kabul is the last resting place for victims of a deadly suicide bombing on July 23 last year -- the first claimed by the Islamic State group in the heart of Kabul against Afghanistan's Shiite Muslim Hazara ethnic minority. The line from Turkmenistan to Kabul, capital of energy-starved Afghanistan, bypasses the province of Bamiyan, a Hazara stronghold. For Hazara leaders the route is a further sign of discrimination against their community and their province, one of the least developed in Afghanistan.
Germany has no right to interfere in Turkey's domestic affairs, President Recep Tayyip Erdogan said on Sunday, his latest broadside in a blistering row sparked by the waves of arrests under the current state of emergency. Several German nationals are among those being held and Berlin has warned its citizens that their safety cannot be guaranteed in Turkey and that consular access is not assured in case of arrest. Throwing away any pretence at diplomatic nuance, German Foreign Minister Sigmar Gabriel had Thursday also warned German firms against investment in Turkey and spoke of an "overhaul" of the entire relationship.
