Poland says it will send at least four Soviet-designed MiG fighter planes to Ukraine to aid in its war effort against Russian forces. Western nations previously avoided sending jets to avoid an escalation in the conflict. And, the International Atomic Energy Association is reporting missing nuclear material in Libya. There is major concern about who possesses 2.5 tons of natural uranium left over from the era of the former Libyan strongman, Muammar Gaddafi. Also, this week, officials in El Salvador sent 2,000 more suspected criminals to a massive new prison built to hold gang members. Many of the suspects have not been tried. Plus, the "City of Lights" is turning into a "City of Trash."
