Military to begin accepting trans gender recruits

The Pentagon will begin accepting transgender military recruits on Monday, Jan. 1, after the Trump administration decided not to appeal a court order blocking the president's ban.

“The Department of Defense [DOD] has announced that it will be releasing an independent study of these issues in the coming weeks. So rather than litigate this interim appeal before that occurs, the administration has decided to wait for DOD's study and will continue to defend the President's and Secretary of Defense’s lawful authority in district court in the meantime,” the DOJ said in a statement.

An Egyptian court has sentenced former president Mohamed Morsi and 19 others to three years in prison on charges of insulting the judiciary.

Morsi, democratically elected after Egypt's 2011 revolution, was deposed following mass protests and a military coup in July 2013.
