FILE - In this Dec. 11, 2007 file photo, then-Commissioner Beryl A. Howell, speaks during the U.S. Sentencing Commission meeting in Washington. A gadfly attorney and a county sheriff from Arizona want to halt President Barack Obama’s immigration program in the first courtroom battle over the initiative designed to spare nearly 5 million people from deportation. On Monday, lawyer Larry Klayman will try to persuade a Judge Howell, nominated by Barack Obama that the immigration system, contrary to what the president says, isn’t really broken. Klayman says the president has violated the Constitution by doing an end run around Congress and that drastic changes in immigration programs should be stopped. (AP Photo/Stephen J. Boitano, File)

In this conservative Muslim country where homosexuality is illegal and punishable by up to three years in jail, a transgender woman like Noor is not only accepted but is a celebrity.

FILE - In this Dec. 15, 2014 file-pool photo, Secretary of State, John Kerry meets with Israel Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu at Villa Taverna in Rome. Kerry is ending 2014 much in the same way he started it: Frustrated in his efforts to push Israel and Palestinians toward peace. Facing a diplomatic showdown over Arab plans to force Israel from occupied Palestinian lands within three years, Kerry readied himself this week for a 72-hour trip to Jordan to craft a less explosive alternative. By Thursday, the crisis appeared to have been averted: Palestinian and Jordanian officials said they would not force their resolution to an immediate vote in the United Nations Security Council _ in part because the U.S. threatened to veto it.
