"Live from NPR news in Washington. I'm Nora raum. Some democratic lawmakers are calling on President Trump to cancel. Monday's meeting with Russian President Vladimir Putin in Helsinki following the indictment of twelve Russian intelligence officers for interfering in the two thousand sixteen presidential election. They're accused of hacking into democratic computers and releasing information to damage the Clinton campaign California, congressman. Adam Schiff is the top democrat on the house intelligence committee. He says, there's no point. Now in the president, going ahead with the summit, the prison should cancel. The meeting of the visit to Europe has already been disaster enough, but if this president won't confront Putin on these charges on the Russian intervention, and we'd no, he won't. He ought to just cancel the meeting. He also said the indictments show the US will not tolerate election interference. It's three years ago today since the US Iran and five world powers signed an agreement to curb Iran's nuclear. Program as scary. Skyring reports from Vienna, the deal remains in place despite the US withdrawal in two thousand fifteen when Iran agreed to cut uranium enrichment and exchange for sanctions relief. The International Atomic Energy agency was tasked with verifying compliance in March this year. The agency reported that Iran was upholding its end of the bargain, but in May President Trump said the US would withdraw and reimpose sanctions. Now Russia, China and European signatories trying to keep around from returning to pre deal levels of uranium enrichment. But recent talks in Vienna, Iranian diplomats warned of increasing tensions in the region and promised consequences. If there was no compensation for US withdrawal for NPR news, I'm Kerry Skyring in Vienna officials in Thailand.

We felt like it was important for the state to set up a stronger guideline to protect children from predators or those who might do them harm the new law also bars someone age, twenty one or older from marrying anyone under the age of seventeen.

You're listening to NPR news from Washington. The food and Drug administration has approved. The first ever drug produced a treat smallpox NPR's rob Stein has the details. Smallpox is one of the world's most fear diseases by some estimates smallpox killed more people than every other infectious disease combined and more than triple the number killed in every war in the twentieth century. But smallpox was finally declared eradicated from the globe in nineteen eighty. Nevertheless, there's long been fears that smallpox might someday be used by bioterrorists. So the FDA says, the agency took special steps to approve the new drug called Tepa teapots in case it's ever needed. Rob Stein, NPR news police in San Francisco, say they've arrested a man, believe responsible for rapes while posing as a ridesharing driver commander. Greg McEachern says that it took some time for investigators to connect the cases since the suspect had preyed on women for several years. There's diligent work. Of our officers and everyone you see standing here before me is what allowed us to take this predator off the street. Hopefully for a long time, this aspect is charged and attacks on four women.
