Morsi Dies in Court.
Mohamed Morsi, the first democratically-elected president in Egypt's modern history, collapsed and died during court proceedings yesterday. The 67-year-old was elected in the wake of the Arab Spring in 2012, but was subsequently deposed by current President General Abdel Fattah el-Sisi in July 2013. Over 840 people were killed in August 2013 when the military cracked down on pro-Morsi protests during what became known as the Rabaa massacre. Morsi was facing espionage charges - he was a member of the Muslim Brotherhood, and secular opponents accused him of sharing intelligence with Islamist groups like Hamas - when he fainted and collapsed, being declared dead at the hospital. While the cause of death is unknown, critics said neglect during his imprisonment led to his deteriorating health. 
Nuclear Deal on Last Legs.
Iran will breach the limits of the 2015 nuclear treaty within 10 days, according to state media yesterday. Uranium enrichment results in a higher percentage of uranium-235, an unstable form of the material that drives nuclear activity, than is commonly found in nature. 3-5% enrichment is generally used for commercial power reactors - weapons can be made using any material enriched over 20% (overview here), but the amount of material needed drops as enrichment approaches 90%. This has made 20% a symbolic milepost in the development of country’s nuclear capability. Under the deal - which the US left in 2018 - Iran was limited to 660 pounds of low-enriched uranium (3-5%). State officials said they had quadrupled production of low-enriched uranium and would cross that threshold by June 27th, and may restart work on 20% enrichment.

Separately, the White House relocated 1,000 more troops to the Middle East. 
Immigration Sweep and Reelection Bid.
President Trump said yesterday US Immigration and Customs Enforcement will launch an aggressive campaign to remove millions of immigrants illegally living in the country beginning next week. The sweeps - announced in a series of tweets - will reportedly target over a million people who have received final deportation orders but still remain at large in the country. The move comes as Trump gets set to officially launch his 2020 reelection campaign today at a rally in Orlando. An estimated 10.2 million unauthorized immigrants currently live in the US (see stats), down from a peak of 12.2 million in 2007. The news also comes as the US-Mexico border is experiencing an unprecedented surge in Central American migrants arriving to claim asylum in the US - over 144,000 arrived in May, nearly triple the same period in 2018.

The Mindfulness Conspiracy.
The Guardian | Ronald Purser. As the mindfulness movement - with its meditative emphasis of living in the moment - continues to grow, some wonder if the ideology is not as positive for the world as expected. If being mindful means suffering lives within our minds and not within the world around us, fewer people may attempt to make a positive change. (Read)
