The date: June 29! The time: News O'Clock!
Listen above to today's News O'Clock podcast, as we explain the big news from over the weekend: Russia reportedly offered a cash bounty to Taliban-linked militants to kill US soldiers in Afghanistan — and, according to US intelligence, they may have succeeded.
Also we explain how the US saw yet another record-high day of reported COVID-19 cases yesterday, making it five days in a row. The new record number is 40,587 across the country.
Plus hear how just this morning, the Supreme Court decided that Louisiana’s limits on abortion clinics are unconstitutional in a 5–4 ruling.
