In a CNN interview on Sunday, 2020 candidate Rep. Seth Moulton (D-Mass.) went into a detailed discussion on living with post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD) after he served four tours in the Iraq War.

What he's saying: Moulton said his PTSD involves experiencing survivor's guilt and the fallout from taking a life. He described living with the guilt of leaving a wounded 5-year-old Iraqi boy in the road after his family was killed in a strike on what were assessed to be enemy troops by other U.S. Marines. "I'll remember his face until the day that I die," Moulton said.

Why it matters: Moulton said he hadn't previously discussed details of his PTSD out of fear of "the political consequences" as a 2020 presidential candidate. He has released a military mental health plan as part of his campaign.

Highlights from the interview:

"My story is one of success because I got help for it. I decided to talk to someone, to see a therapist. And now those issues are under control, now I control when I want to think about these things. They're still very emotional, they'll stay with me for the rest of my life, but I have a handle on them."
"There was a time when I got back from the war when I couldn't get through a day without thinking about that 5-year-old boy, and leaving him in the middle of the road. And that's why I decided to talk to someone and get help. And I'll remember his face until the day that I die. But at least I can control when I think about it, when I think about him."

Ethiopia's Nobel Peace laureate cracks down on ethnic violence

The image of a Nobel Peace laureate in military fatigues encapsulates the moment in which Ethiopia finds itself — on the verge of a transition to democracy, a descent into violence or, perhaps, a precarious combination of the two.

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.

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.
