First lady promotes learning to empower Moroccan girls
MARRAKECH, Morocco — First lady Michelle Obama met with teenage Moroccan girls on Tuesday to promote education in the North African kingdom, where only 36 percent of girls continue school beyond the primary level.
Actresses Meryl Streep and Indian star Freida Pinto also took part in Obama’s encounter with a group of two dozen young women to discuss the challenges facing girls in getting educated.
USAID is also giving $400,000 to create five new girls’ dormitories that will improve educational opportunities for girls from rural areas.
ULAANBAATAR, Mongolia — Mongolians vote in parliamentary elections Wednesday with sentiment weighed by a sharp downturn in the landlocked Asian nation’s crucial mining sector, rising unemployment and political disillusionment.
The Democratic Party could lose its majority in parliament, known as the State Great Khural, to the opposition Mongolian People’s Party a year ahead of the 2017 presidential election.

DENVER — Hillary Clinton on Tuesday proposed letting entrepreneurs defer making student loan payments in order to create jobs and stimulate growth.
“We need more job creators and we need more young people starting businesses,” the presumptive Democratic nominee told a crowd of coders inside a Denver tech incubator that houses several startups.
Clinton also called for connecting every household to high-speed Internet by 2020 and training 50,000 new computer science teachers.
Clinton argues that rebuilding the middle class requires government aid for higher education and job training.
Both lace their speeches with populist attacks on Wall Street and descriptions of the economy as “rigged,” though Trump, aiming to draw supporters of Democratic candidate Bernie Sanders, has done so more than Clinton.
