2. Former defense secretary Robert Gates speaks on the change in military morale under president Obama
Sen. Ted Cruz asked Gates, “Do you share my concerns about declining morale in the military, and if so, what do you see as the cause of these challenges?”
Two bomb attacks in north-eastern Nigeria have left at least 37 people dead and more than 100 injured, officials say.
At least 30 people died when a bomb targeted a newly opened mosque in the town of Yola.
