More on the Jordinian Execution of Two Iraqi Jihadists on the World for 2-4

An Israeli couple decides to form a gospel choir in Tel Aviv. More on that story in a minute.

We head to Jordan first today to hear about the execution of two Iraqi jihadists. Those executions were in response to the release of a video yesterday by the militant group ISIS, which showed the gruesome death of a captured Jordanian pilot. 

Plus, bus service has resumed through the exclusion zone around the Fukushima nuclear power plant. No one can get on or off the bus. Many families are riding it simply to get a glimpse of the homes they once lived in. We'll ride along with Julian Ryall, who has written about the bus service for The Telegraph newspaper in Britain.

Our Global Nation editor, Monica Campbell, has been reporting from California's Central Valley, an agricultural region dependent on immigrant labor. Monica goes along with some of those farm workers as they do their own shopping in the fruit and vegetable aisle.

OK, back to that Israeli gospel choir. Ofer and Iris Portugaly studied music right here in Boston, and they played jazz together for years. Then, the couple discovered gospel music. Find out what happened next. Tune in later today.
