President Donald Trump placed a note in the Western Wall in #Jerusalem on Monday, becoming the first sitting U.S. president to visit one of #Judaism's holiest sites.
.
The historic visit is part of #Trump's efforts to highlight "the need for unity among three of the world's great religions" on his first foreign trip, senior administration officials said.
.
Trump stood alone with his hand on the wall for several moments before tucking a note between the cracks.
.
The #WesternWall is not officially recognized as Israeli territory, and the Trump administration has not been clear about whether they believe it is part of Israel.

After nearly 150 years, the show will not go on for the iconic @ringlingbros and Barnum & Bailey Circus, which folded up its Big Top for the last time Sunday night.
.
Throughout its 146 year history, the massive, traveling #circus elated crowds from small towns to big cities across America with its exotic animals, mile-long trains and death-defying feats โ€” but not without courting its fair share of controversy.
.
The show was "one of these wonderful dynamic miracles in the annals of time, and that's where it's going," said Ringmaster Johnathan Lee Iverson. "It'll be in the memories of many people for years to come."

Oprah Winfrey is awarded an honorary degree during the @smithcollege commencement ceremony on Sunday in Northampton, Mass. @Oprah advised #SmithCollege graduates to seek fulfillment by serving others and live with intention during her address.
.
#Oprah told the graduates to "shift the paradigm to service and the rewards will come."
.
"This understanding that there is an alignment between who you are and what you do is the real, true empowerment," #OprahWinfrey said.

"Drive them out!" President Donald Trump said of terrorists to dozens of Arab leaders. "Of your places of worship, drive them out of your communities, drive them out of your Holy Land, and drive them out of this Earth!"
.
#Trump offered a message of unity Sunday as he called on the Arab world to confront extremism during a highly anticipated speech in the birthplace of #Islam.
.
The speech during the initial stop of the president's first foreign trip was a stark contrast to his previous comments on Islam. As a candidate, Trump frequently criticized the religion, saying, "I think Islam hates us" and "there's a tremendous hatred there."
.
In #Riyadh, Trump said, "This is not a battle between different faiths, different sects, or different civilizations. This is a battle between barbaric criminals who seek to obliterate human life, and decent people of all religions who seek to protect it."

Tens of thousands of people poured into the streets of #Tehran to celebrate President Hassan Rouhaniโ€™s re-election. He defeated his hardline opponent, Ebrahim Raisi, in a landslide. #Raisi, a conservative judge who supports a strict enforcement of #Sharia law, was widely backed by religious conservatives. #Rouhani has slowly expanded social freedoms since taking office in 2013 and actively courted the support of young, urban and female voters.
.
NBCโ€™s Ali Arouzi got a first-hand look at the celebrations in the streets of #Tehran. Watch our Instagram story to see more.

Royals and celebrities gathered as Pippa Middleton, the younger sister of Catherine, the Duchess of Cambridge, married hedge fund manager James Matthews in #Berkshire, #England today.
.
Her nephew, Prince #George, served as a page boy and her niece, Princess #Charlotte, was a bridesmaid.
.
#Pippa wore a custom gown by British designer #GilesDeacon. Her big sister was there to make sure it was perfectly fluffed for every photo op. Duchess Catherine wore a pink dress created by a #AlexanderMcQueen designer Sarah Burton, the same designer behind her 2011 wedding gown and Pippa's bridesmaid gown that caught the world's attention.

A royal greeting awaited President Donald Trump as he touched down in #Riyadh, #SaudiArabia on his first foreign trip. King #Salman met the president and first lady on the tarmac and walked them back to the terminal on a red carpet flanked by #Saudi military.
.
#American and Saudi flags lined the highways of the country's capital along with billboards featuring Trump's face. Trumpets played and jets flew overhead streaming red, white and blue.
.
A president's first foreign trip is often read as a sign of the administration's policy priorities. No other U.S. leader has chosen the kingdom for their first international foray.
.
President #Trump's Saudi visit will be followed by stops in #Israel, the #Vatican and #Belgium for a NATO meeting.

Greek police clash with protesters in front of parliament during a rally against new austerity measures on Thursday in #Athens.
.
The new batch of creditor-demanded measures will impose further income losses on austerity-weary Greeks over the next three years but pave the way for a modest debt relief deal.
.
Pensions have been cut sharply over the past seven years as successive Greek governments have slashed spending in return for bailout money to avoid bankruptcy.
