(CNN)The Rev. Jesse Jackson and the Rev. William Barber II were among a handful of people arrested this week during a protest on Capitol Hill as more high-profile figures call for new voting rights action.

Florida condo collapseThe partial collapse of a residential building near Miami has left 159 people unaccounted for and four confirmed dead. Search and rescue operations are ongoing, and officials are trying to stay hopeful that the missing can be recovered. Nearly 55 of the 136 units at Champlain Towers South crumbled around 1:30 a.m. yesterday, leaving huge piles of rubble and materials dangling from what remained of the structure. The cause of the collapse is still unknown. The tragedy has reached past the US as nationals from Paraguay, Venezuela, Argentina, Uruguay and possibly Colombia are among the missing. This includes Paraguayan First Lady Silvana López Moreira’s sister, brother-in-law and their three children. Members of the city’s Jewish community are also among the missing, according to faith leaders.

CoronavirusA new and slightly different version of the Delta coronavirus variant is spreading in countries including the United Kingdom, the United States and India, health officials say. It’s called the Delta Plus variant, and it could be even more contagious than the Delta version. So far, about 200 cases in 11 countries have been identified. Meanwhile, more than 1 in 10 people who got one dose of the Pfizer/BioNTech or Moderna vaccine in the US have missed their second dose, according to CDC data. That could leave people more vulnerable to dangerous coronavirus strains like the Delta variant.

The $1.2 trillion plan includes $109 billion for roads, bridges and other infrastructure projects, $55 billion for water infrastructure and $73 billion for the nation’s power structure. Other areas of spending include transit, airports, broadband internet and electric vehicles. The bill still falls far short of President Biden’s original $2.25 trillion plan, and how to fund and pass it is still being worked out. Still, the deal is seen as a big win in Washington because of the hard-won bipartisan cooperation. More promising news: Congressional negotiators working to overhaul the nation’s policing laws say they’ve “reached agreement on a framework” for a bill.President Biden announces a bipartisan infrastructure deal totaling $1.2 trillion over eight yearsPresident Biden announces a bipartisan infrastructure deal totaling $1.2 trillion over eight yearsLead Kaitlan Collins DNT Live Jake Tapper_00034606JUST WATCHEDPresident Biden announces a bipartisan infrastructure deal totaling $1.2 trillion over eight yearsReplayMore Videos …MUST WATCH

LGBTQ rights New anti-LGBTQ crackdowns in Hungary and Malaysia are drawing international condemnation. Hungary’s parliament this month passed legislation banning all educational materials and programs for children that are considered to promote homosexuality, gender reassignment or similar concepts. The Dutch Prime Minister now says Hungary “has no place in the EU anymore” because of the new law. In Malaysia, a government task force has proposed amendments that would allow social media users to be punished for “promoting the LGBT lifestyle,” as well as insulting Islam. Same-sex acts are illegal under Islamic law in the Muslim-majority country, though convictions are rare. The proposal comes amid concern over growing intolerance toward the LGBTQ community in Malaysia in recent years.Dutch PM: Hungary has 'no place in the EU' Dutch PM: Hungary has 'no place in the EU' Dutch PM: Hungary has 'no place in the EU' JUST WATCHEDDutch PM: Hungary has ‘no place in the EU’ ReplayMore Videos …MUST WATCH

UK & RussiaThe UK and Russia exchanged a few tense moments this week after a flare-up between a Royal Navy warship and Russian forces near Crimea, and Britain’s allies and adversaries are taking note. The Royal Navy sailed the destroyer HMS Defender through waters near Crimea, and British ministers insisted it was legal passage. But Russia accused the UK of “deliberate, planned provocation.” It was rough timing for a conflict between the two nations, since the United States and its partners, including Britain, will kick off the annual Sea Breeze exercises in the Black Sea region in the coming days. The tense exchange also comes as some EU members are considering new and open dialogue with Russia.Russia releases footage showing warship at center of UK disputeRussia releases footage showing warship at center of UK disputeRussia releases footage showing warship at center of UK disputeJUST WATCHEDRussia releases footage showing warship at center of UK disputeReplayMore Videos …MUST WATCH
