Thousands of people were being evacuated from surrounding islands near the epicenter of a powerful 6.9 magnitude earthquake after it struck the island of Lombok on Sunday. Some Indonesian villagers living close to the epicenter said they had yet to receive any aid. The United States has re-imposed economic sanctions against Iran, targeting a wide range of sectors including automobiles, its trade in gold and other precious metals, and its currency. Iranians are bracing for the repercussions, while neighboring Arab states are eager to see the sanctions place pressure on their regional nemesis. Plus, India's first disabled dance troupe performs a lively, foot stomping folk dance that's popular in the northern state of Punjab. The troupe is enthralling audiences around the country with their energetic performances. Over the years, the Rising Star dance troupe has grown from four to 14 members. And many of their members are now in their forties and fifties.
