On July 1, 2020, seven towns in Uganda were elevated to the status of cities by the government as parts of efforts to drive economic developments in the East African country. Magyezi further mentioned that the new regional cities are the government’s response to the high urbanisation growth rate the country is experiencing. The government’s move is part of efforts to create a total of 15 regional and strategic cities in the country. In Uganda, research shows that a combination of economic and social push and pull factors are responsible for rural-urban migration in most cases. With this new development, the cities are expected to experience more rural migration, infrastructural development and foreign investment opportunities.

Iran released a photo Thursday of what appears to a badly fire-damaged factory where the country had touted the production of new centrifuges, The New York Times reports. The Atomic Energy Agency of Iran described the fire at the plant as an "incident." Last year, the Iranian government said that it was producing a new centrifuge that would allow it to enrich uranium 50 times faster than it was able to under the Obama-era nuclear deal. “If Iran isn't a threat to peace that demands a collective measure, I do not know what is,” Pompeo told the council Tuesday. Under that deal, Iran received sanction relief in return for limiting its nuclear production.

"My critics have likened those who speak on the Algerian issue to intruders into an intimate family difficulty or to heedless meddlers." My critics have likened those who speak on the Algerian issue to intruders into an intimate family difficulty or to heedless meddlers. Presumably American opinion is to act the part of the chorus in the Greek tragedies. All of these great enterprises and visions will, I fear, come to nothing if we cannot close the Algerian wound. I am convinced that the true interests of Franco-American friendship will be promoted by a resolution of the Algerian crisis.
