Nikki Haley, United States ambassador to the U.N., was evacuated from a U.N. displacement camp in South Sudan on Wednesday, per ABC. She was meeting with South Sudan's President about the country's civil war, and the evacuation was due to a demonstration against the president. After Haley was evacuated, "U.N. security guards fired tear gas to disperse the crowd of more than 100 residents who looted and destroyed the office of a charity operating there," ABC reports.

  • During her visit, Haley said: "We are disappointed by what we are seeing...what we thought we were investing in was a free, fair society where people could be safe and South Sudan is the opposite of that."
  • Go deeper: U.S. support of South Sudan's military may have broken the law.

Driving the news: At least 166 people were killed after an iconic musician, Haacaaluu Hundeessaa, was murdered last Monday in Addis Ababa, the capital. Prime Minister Abiy Ahmed responded to the violence by sending in troops and shutting off the internet. High-profile opposition leaders were arrested, along with some 2,300 others.

Atlanta Mayor Keisha Lance Bottoms tests positive for coronavirus

Atlanta Mayor Keisha Lance Bottoms said on Monday that she has tested positive for the coronavirus after displaying no symptoms.

Why it matters: Bottoms, one of several Black women on the shortlist to be Joe Biden's running mate, has risen to national prominence in recent months as part of mass protests over racism and police brutality — driven in part by the killing of Rayshard Brooks by Atlanta police.
