Special counsel Robert Mueller wrote in his report that over the course of his investigation, his team "periodically identified evidence of potential criminal activity that was outside the scope of the special counsel's jurisdiction established by the Acting Attorney General."

The big picture: Out of the 14 cases that were referred to "other components of the Department of Justice and the FBI," 12 are redacted. The 2 that aren't redacted relate to Michael Cohen's conviction for wire fraud and campaign finance violations, and former Obama White House counsel Gregory Craig's indictment for making false statements during a Foreign Agents Registration Act investigation.

Why it matters: Protesters blame the incompetence of the ruling elite — widely viewed as corrupt — for the disaster. The unstable and deeply distrusted government will remain in place in a caretaker capacity until a new prime minister is selected.

Rights groups said at least one protester was killed and dozens more wounded in a "police crackdown," per AP.
