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.
The Turkish Medical Association warns that the country is at risk for outbreaks of preventable diseases that have already been eradicated in Turkey due to the increase in anti-vaccine messaging and vaccine rejection by parents.
In a recent public service announcement produced by Mutombo for DR Congo, he speaks directly into the camera and tells viewers that Ebola is real and offers tips on how to prevent it and get treatment.
