CNN reports exclusively from air base attacked by Iran

Description:

CNN senior international correspondent Arwa Damon is the first western journalist granted access to Al-Asad air base in Baghdad following a rocket attack by Iran.


Libya's UN-recognised government has condemned air raids on a recaptured air base in the west of the country.
It says a "foreign air force" carried out the attack.
The loss of the facility in May was among a string of recent defeats for renegade military commander Khalifa Haftar, pushing him out of large parts of western Libya.
Haftar launched an offensive to seize the capital, Tripoli, last year.

Al Jazeera's Mahmoud Abdelwahed reports from Tripoli.
President Donald Trump threatened on Wednesday to veto a national defense bill the Senate is currently considering if an amendment from Sen. Elizabeth Warren to rename military bases honoring the Confederacy is not removed. Aired on 7/01/2020.
Despite a wave of criticism the UK government has gone ahead with new rules requiring most people arriving in the UK including British citizens to self-isolate for two weeks.

Those arriving by plane, ferry or train must give an address where they will self-isolate. Those who break the rules could be fined.

The home secretary Priti Patel says the laws are designed to prevent a second wave' of coronavirus. But travel companies, business leaders and some MPs have questioned the government's reasoning and whether the policy can be enforced.

Meanwhile one effect of the pandemic is a rise in the number of young carers under 18 looking after a relative with a physical or mental condition. The Who Cares Campaign - which supports the needs and rights of young carers - is calling for an identity card recognised throughout the UK so that children who are carers can be helped by local services such as pharmacies.

Huw Edwards presents BBC News at Ten reporting from Transport Correspondent Tom Burridge, Health Editor Hugh Pym and Jeremy Cooke speaking to young carers about the challenges they face.
President Donald Trump said he opposes any effort by the US military to rename the nearly one dozen major bases and installations that bear the names of Confederate military commanders.
US Army Secretary Ryan McCarthy and Defense Secretary Mark Esper are said to be open to holding a "bipartisan conversation" about renaming nearly a dozen major bases and installations that bear the names of Confederate military commanders, according to an Army official.
But Trump tweeted: "These Monumental and very Powerful Bases have become part of a Great American Heritage, and a... ....history of Winning, Victory, and Freedom. The United States of America trained and deployed our HEROES on these Hallowed Grounds, and won two World Wars. Therefore, my Administration will not even consider the renaming of these Magnificent and Fabled Military Installations."
Army installations named after Confederate leaders include Fort Bragg in North Carolina, Fort Hood in Texas and Fort A.P. Hill in Virginia. Army bases across the country have continued to bear the names of Confederate military commanders even amid intense external pressure to rename them.
