They saw a new playground that honors their Ojibwe culture and language and is accessible for young and old alike, they saw a basketball court, and a “chill space” with seating and a fire ring and they saw a picnic area too.

Fast forward to today and the playground is designed and fundraising is underway with the goal of breaking ground the beginning of August.

U.S. Secretary of State Mike Pompeo doubled down Sunday on the claim that Iran was responsible for attacks on two tankers traveling in the Strait of Hormuz, despite furnishing no new evidence beyond a video distributed last week by the Pentagon.

Exactly two months to the day after a fire blazed through the roof and spire of Notre Dame Cathedral in Paris, the church held its first Mass on Saturday.

Instead of his traditional miter hat, the archbishop of Paris wore a white, hard hat, along with about 30 others in attendance.

The Mass was closed to the public for security reasons, and those there were mostly clergy and people who work on the site.

We're going to stay in Hong Kong a little longer to hear from one of the protesters who was out in the streets all day. Galileo Cheng is a social affairs executive for the Hong Kong Catholic Institution Staff Association, and he is with us now.

Welcome. Thanks for talking to us.

GALILEO CHENG: Yes. Thank you.
