Mnuchin speaks as U.S.-Israeli delegation heads to Bahrain on first Israeli commercial flight

Description:

A joint US-Israeli delegation -- including Treasury Secretary Steven Mnuchin -- is heading to Bahrain on the first Israeli commercial flight to the country Sunday.


A first official United Arab Emirates (#UAE) delegation arrived in #Israel on Tuesday after the two countries normalised ties last month under a #US-brokered accord forged largely over shared fears of Iran.
President Trump's son-in-law and adviser Jared Kushner and national security adviser Robert O'Brien served as part of a delegation on the first commercial flight from Israel to the United Arab Emirates.
The House of Representatives is set to vote on a new Democratic-led economic relief package known as the HEROES Act. It comes as House Speaker Nancy Pelosi and Treasury Secretary Steven Mnuchin restart negotiations, but Senate Republican support would still be needed to pass any legislation. CBS News chief congressional correspondent Nancy Cordes joined CBSN with the latest.
The Honduran migrant caravan heads to the Guatemala-Mexican border. Guatemala has said it will detain the migrant caravan and return them to Honduras.
