Russia probe: Special investigation into US presidential election heats up

Amid an ongoing probe into Russia's alleged meddling in the US presidential election, three of President Trump's aides have been charged. Paul Manafort faces charges of money laundering and conspiracy to defraud the US government, alongside his business partner Rick Gates. Meanwhile, George Papadopoulos has admitted lying to FBI agents over his Kremlin-linked contacts.

Also, Hollywood actor Kevin Spacey is facing growing condemnation following allegations he made sexual advances towards an actor when the latter was just 14 years old. Spacey's response to the accusations on Twitter only sparked further backlash, particularly among gay rights activists.

And our number of the week is 28. That's the time one man served behind bars for his involvement in a gang killing in Detroit. Bobby Hines was sentenced in 1989 when he was just 15 years old. But now, thanks to a Supreme Court ruling that bans mandatory life sentences without parole for juveniles, Hines is a free man.
