    Protests and upsets at the World Cup

    Protests and upsets at the World Cup

    The United States will either win the World Cup game against Iran or go home on Tuesday afternoon. The stakes are high and so are tensions.

And the Iranian soccer team may be facing its own repercussions back home for its support of protests.

    Plus, the world’s largest active volcano is erupting.

    And, President Biden looks to Congress to avert a rail strike.
