Former President Donald Trump arrived at a Manhattan courthouse Friday for likely the last day of jury selection before his trial begins with opening statements on Monday, April 22. A fresh panel of nearly 100 prospective jurors are being questioned as the court seeks to seat five backup jurors after swearing in a full jury of 12 on Thursday.

Israel appears to have launched a retaliatory attack on Iran early Friday morning—nearly a week after the Iranian regime launched a combination of more than 300 missiles and drones against it. However, Iranian officials downplayed the attack, and did not directly acknowledge reports that Israel had retaliated. Israel has also not confirmed whether it launched the attack.

Police arrested more than 100 people on Columbia University’s campus on Thursday after protesters set up an encampment there to protest against Israel’s military actions against the Hamas terrorist group in Gaza. New York City Mayor Eric Adams said that 108 people were arrested for trespassing on the university’s property.
