A Kentucky State Trooper explains to Margaret Wells that the line outside a temporary unemployment office established by the Kentucky Labor Cabinet is closed at the State Capitol Annex in Frankfort, Kentucky, June 17, 2020. Hundreds of people who lost jobs during the coronavirus crisis but have been unable to get their unemployment insurance checks converged at the Capitol to seek in-person help. Wells worked in retail in Louisville and has been unemployed since April. She has not been able to get anyone on the phone to answer questions about the status of her application for benefits. She has three kids and drove about an hour to come to the clinic. "I just need to talk to someone, that's all I came all this way to do," she said. REUTERS/Bryan Woolston

President Donald Trump listens to applause after signing an executive order on police reform during a ceremony in the Rose Garden at the White House in Washington, June 16, 2020. The order encourages police departments to employ the latest standards for use of force, improve information sharing so that officers with poor records are not hired without their backgrounds being known, and add social workers to law enforcement responses to non-violent cases involving drug addiction and homelessness, officials said. Civil-rights groups and top Democrats, including former Vice President Joe Biden, said the order was insufficient. REUTERS/Leah Millis

Police officers detain an activist from Swadeshi Jagran Manch, a wing of the Hindu nationalist organisation Rashtriya Swayamsevak Sangh (RSS), during a protest against China, in New Delhi, India June 17, 2020. India said 20 soldiers were killed in hand-to-hand fighting with Chinese troops in a disputed mountainous border region. Indian soldiers who survived the clash said the Chinese used bamboo sticks studded with nails during the confrontation in sub-zero temperatures in the high altitude terrain, while the Indians used stones and sticks. Under an agreement forged in the 1990s, the two armies carry but do not use arms near the border. India said China had also suffered casualties. China has not given details of deaths or injuries among its troops. REUTERS/Anushree Fadnavis

Maria Ressa, executive editor and CEO of Philippine news website Rappler, arrives at city hall for the promulgation of her cyber libel case in Manila, Philippines, June 15, 2020. Ressa, whose website has put President Rodrigo Duterte under tough scrutiny, was convicted of libel and faces up to six years in jail, in a ruling widely seen as a blow to media freedom. The former CNN journalist was charged with "cyber libel" over a 2012 article that linked a businessman to illegal activities. After the verdict, Ressa vowed not be silenced and accused the judiciary of becoming complicit in a campaign to stifle press freedom in the Southeast Asian nation. "We're at the precipice, if we fall over we're no longer a democracy," she told reporters. REUTERS/Eloisa Lopez

Retired nurse Feridia Rojas, 82, wears cardboard shaped into a house at a market to protect herself from the coronavirus in Havana, Cuba, June 11, 2020. Rojas decided to build and wear mobile housing to shield herself from the virus that is particularly deadly to seniors in a country where personal protective equipment is not sold at stores. "I am at home, what about you?" reads a message on her box, in a witty nod to Cuba's coronavirus slogan "Stay at home." The widower, whose daughters both live in the United States, said that with no one to run her errands she had to find a way to do so safely by herself, illustrating the resourcefulness and humor for which Cubans are renowned.
