Five stories to know for May 19: Israel and Gaza, Trump Organization, U.S. Capitol attack commission advances in Congress, Andrew Giuliani, and COVID in India. 1. Israeli forces pounded Gaza with air strikes and Hamas renewed cross-border rocket attacks, pressing on with a conflict that has caused widespread destruction in the Palestinian enclave and threatened cities deep inside Israel. 2. The New York attorney general's office said it has now opened a criminal investigation into Donald Trump's company, increasing the legal risk for Trump and his family. 3. The House of Representatives is expected to approve creating a 10-member commission to probe the deadly Jan. 6 Capitol riot, testing Republicans’ loyalty to former President Donald Trump, whose supporters mounted the attack. 4. Andrew Giuliani, the son of embattled former New York City Mayor Rudy Giuliani, announced his candidacy for the 2022 Republican nomination for governor of New York. 5. Nearly two-thirds of people tested in India have shown exposure to COVID-19, a chain of private laboratories said, indicating a runaway spread of the virus as the daily death toll rose to a record 4,529. #Gaza #Israel #Hamas #Airstrikes #Rockets #IDF #Netanyahu #US #NewYork #AttorneyGeneral #Trump #TrumpOrganization #Jan6 #CapitolAttack #House #Democrats #Republicans #KevinMcCarthy #Mayor #AndrewGiuliani #RudyGiuliani #India #COVID19 #IndiaCovidCrisis #News #Reuters Subscribe: Reuters brings you the latest business, finance and breaking news video from around the globe.
