Fifty years after his LOVE painting made Robert Indiana a sensation, the artist has died at age 89. Indiana's two-row rendering of the word, with its tilted "O," became one of the most recognizable works of modern art in the world.

The famous design emerged from deep influences in Indiana's life, from his early exposure to religion to his father's career.

Attorney General Jeff Sessions is stirring panic in immigrant communities by moving to limit who can get asylum in the United States. Perhaps no one is more alarmed than one Salvadoran woman living in the Carolinas.

She is known only by her initials in immigration court papers, so her lawyers call her Ms. A.B. She fled to the U.S. four years ago, after enduring more than a decade of domestic abuse in her home country, and requested asylum here.

President Trump meets at the White House Tuesday with South Korean President Moon Jae-in. The two men are partners in an effort to strip North Korea of its nuclear weapons.

As Environmental Protection Agency chief Scott Pruitt has moved to roll back a sweeping array of Obama-era regulations he's relentlessly cited his goal of providing "regulatory certainty."

In his first address to career employees last year he told the gathered room at the EPA, "Regulators exist to give certainty to those that they regulate. Those that we regulate ought to know what we expect of them, so that they can plan and allocate resources to comply."

President Trump has signed new economic sanctions against Venezuela a day after the country's socialist president, Nicolas Maduro, won elections that have been widely condemned as fraudulent.

The U.S. order would clamp down on the South American country's ability to liquidate assets, but the Trump administration fell short of imposing threatened new oil sanctions.

Trump said the executive order would prevent Venezuela's government from conducting "fire sales" of its assets.

"[This] money belongs to the Venezuelan people," he said.
