Condoleezza Rice and other big name witnesses testified on the first day of CIA whistleblower Jeffrey Sterling’s trial on Thursday. The government accuses the former spy of leaking to New York Time’s journalist James Risen details about a plot to give Iran sabotaged nuclear weapons plans, which Sterling felt were deeply flawed and deserved public attention. Prosecutors see things differently, however, and want him thrown in jail. RT’s Ameera David wraps up the first day of the trial.
Like a modern day Quasimodo, Angela Navarro is holed up in a Pennsylvania church, seeking refuge from those who wish to deport her.

RT’s Manuel Rapalo reports from Philadelphia.
