British Foreign Secretary Dominic Raab condemned the U.S.'s decision to refuse extradition in the case of Anne Sacoolas, a U.S. diplomat's wife who was charged last December in connection with the crash that killed teenager Harry Dunn in Britain last August.

The state of play: Sacoolas invoked diplomatic immunity under international law and returned to the U.S. after police reports claimed that her vehicle struck 19-year-old Dunn's motorcycle when she drove on the wrong side of the road.

Americans are more likely to support the U.S. drone strike that killed Iranian general Qasem Soleimani, despite general skepticism about President Trump's handling of foreign affairs, an Associated Press-NORC poll out Friday indicates.

By the numbers: 41% of respondents approved of the strike, while 30% disapproved. Another 28% didn't express an opinion. Among Republicans, 80% approved while 5% disapproved of the decision. Only 15% of Democrats approved, with 53% disapproving.
