It’s election day in Kentucky, New York and Colorado and Democrats hope their enthusiasm is strong enough to take control of the US Senate.

Latvia made a dramatic move to ban seven RT channels from its airways.

China has approved a contentious national security law for Hong Kong. The move comes on the 23rd anniversary of Hong Kong’s return to mainland China from British rule.

The US is one of the biggest critics of the new legislation. RT America’s Alex Mihailovich has the story. Iran’s foreign minister addressed the UN Security Council to respond to a report claiming that the country failed to uphold its end of the nuclear deal.
