This Week's Agenda with Marcus Mabry and Jonathan Marcus

Monday, June 22, 2009

Iran again tops this week's agenda and our guides Marcus Mabry, international business editor for the New York Times and Jonathan Marcus, diplomatic correspondent for the BBC, will take a look at the protests surrounding the disputed presidential election. Also on the agenda this week: the latest news from Capitol Hill; the Supreme Court is expected to rule on the Voting Rights Act, and the trial of singer Chris Brown for the alleged assault against pop star Rhianna starts this week. We've got all the news you'll need to keep your eyes on in the week ahead.

"In the absence of permanent's going to be much much harder to get a barometer, get a gauge, on the significance of events on the ground there."
— BBC's Jonathan Marcus on getting news from Iran

If you haven't seen the video of Neda, the young woman killed in Iran, here it is. CAUTION: It has very graphic content:

I heard you boys talking about a picture of a woman gravely injured but I don't see it here on your site. Can you post it?
