Today’s edition of quick hits:
* Syria: “A nationwide ceasefire in Syria brokered by the United States and Russia came into effect at 7 p.m. local time (12 p.m. ET) on Monday, the second attempt this year by Washington and Moscow to halt the five-year-long civil war.”
* On the other hand: “A Syrian cease-fire agreement backed by the United States and Russia went into effect Monday and was almost immediately violated, dashing hopes for an imminent halt to the relentless violence that has raged in Syria for the past five years.”
* Fort Pierce, Fla.: “A Florida mosque where Orlando nightclub shooter Omar Mateen prayed was set ablaze in an act of arson early Monday morning, according to the St. Lucie County Sheriff’s Office.”
* Don’t be surprised if this veto is overridden: “President Obama is expected to veto a bill Congress approved without objection that would allow families of the victims of the Sept. 11, 2001, terrorist attacks to sue the Saudi Arabian government, a White House spokesman said Monday.”
* So far, so good: “Iran has kept to a nuclear deal it agreed to with six world powers last year limiting its stockpiles of substances that could be used to make atomic weapons, a report by the U.N. nuclear agency found.”
* This will be especially relevant in Kansas: “A U.S. elections agency must remove a proof-of-citizenship requirement from a mail-in federal voter registration form used for November’s election in Kansas, Alabama and Georgia, a federal appeals court panel in Washington ordered late Friday, reversing a lower court.”
