The White House vows to fight a federal judge's decision to block one of President Donald Trump's new immigration rules. The decision puts a temporary stop to a rule introduced last week barring most asylum applications at the US-Mexico border. Also, North Korea has seized a Russian fishing boat within its territorial waters. The seizure says a lot about the richness of the fisheries off North Korea, but also about their importance to the North Korean economy, which is under stress due to international sanctions. Plus, former NBA star Dikembe Mutombo talks about his efforts to raise awareness about Ebola in Democratic Republic of Congo.
