The World Follows the Ebola and Gaza Stories for 8-4

The news this summer is not for the faint of heart. We're still following some tough stories, including the war in Gaza, the Ebola outbreak, the struggle for power in Iraq, and the controversy over undocumented child migrants crossing the border into the US. Our own Jason Margolis is just back from the Mexico-Texas border where he's been visiting detention centers and talking with a variety of folks. Marco will debrief him on his travels.

Also today, correspondent Sam Harnett reports on the resurgence of a protest movement in Japan, and Carol Hills speaks with novelist Karen Ma about tensions and misunderstandings between China and Japan and how those crop up in personal relationships inside her own family.

We'll also hear from Guardian correspondent Chris McGreal about the summit of nearly 50 African leaders underway this week in Washington, DC. Plus, we're chasing the photographers behind the "Everyday Africa" Instagram account who aim to broaden portrayals of life in Africa.
