US restores some aid to El Salvador, Honduras, Guatemala
The Trump administration said Monday it is easing previously announced cuts in hundreds of millions of dollars in aid to the Central American nations of El Salvador, Honduras and Guatemala but will not allow new funding until those countries do more to reduce migrant flows to the United States. The State Department said that after a review of more than $615 million in assistance that President Donald Trump ordered in March to be cut entirely, it would go ahead with $432 million in projects and grants that had been previously approved.

US releases photos to bolster claim Iran attacked tankers
In an effort to bolster its public case against Iran, the Pentagon on Monday released new photos that officials said show that members of Tehran's Revolutionary Guard were responsible for attacks last week on two oil tankers near the Persian Gulf. The images, many taken from a Navy helicopter, show what the Pentagon said were Iranian forces removing an unexploded mine from the side of the Japanese-owned Kokuka Courageous oil tanker in the Gulf of Oman. The release of the photos came as the U.S. works this week to convince members of Congress and allies that the accusations against Tehran are true.

Exclusive: U.S. preparing to send more troops to Middle East - sources
The United States is preparing to send additional troops to the Middle East in response to mounting concerns over Iran, which Washington blames for attacks on oil tankers last week, two U.S. officials told Reuters on Monday, speaking on condition of anonymity. The officials did not say how many troops would be deployed or detail the timing of the deployment, which has not been previously reported. If confirmed, it would be in addition to the 1,500 troop increase announced last month in response to tanker attacks in May that it also blamed on Iran.

Mexico's crackdown on migrants sends some heading south
Mexico's efforts to slow Central American migration across its territory showed some bite Monday as some people turned around to head south in the face of increased enforcement, while government officials said they would target human smuggling rings. One government official announced Monday that the 6,000 National Guard members who officials had repeatedly said would be sent to the southern border will actually be distributed across the northern border and other areas as well, while another suggested measures were showing results. A senior Mexican official, who requested anonymity to discuss negotiations with the U.S., said that three weeks ago about 4,200 migrants were arriving at the U.S. border daily and that now that number has dropped to about 2,600 per day.

Apple's 128GB iPad is somehow cheaper right now than it was on Black Friday
When Apple's current-generation iPad tablets went on sale at deep discounts for Black Friday last year, people flipped out. It makes sense of course, since truly deep discounts on Apple products are so rare. Well, get ready to flip out even more because Amazon somehow just gave the Apple iPad an even deeper discount! The 128GB model that was $80 off on Black Friday is now a whopping $101 off, slashing the price all the way down to just $328. That's an all-time low, and we doubt we'll ever see a better bargain on an iPad. If you don't need that much storage, you can also still get the 32GB model for just $249, which is also an all-time low.Here are the highlights from the product page: * 9.7-inch Retina display * A10 Fusion chip * Touch ID fingerprint sensor * 8MP back camera and 1.2MP FaceTime HD front camera * Two speaker audio * 802.11ac Wi-Fi * Up to 10 hours of battery life * Lightning connector for charging and accessories * iOS 12 with Group FaceTime, shared augmented reality experiences, Screen Time, and more
