Story highlights

August 18, 2014
Welcome to a new week of CNN Student News! Events covered in Monday's show include a battle for a dam in Iraq, a visit by Pope Francis to South Korea, and an uncommon type of tribute to a former South American leader. We'll also tour a model for a city of the future, though its viability is far from certain.
On this page you will find today's show Transcript and a place for you to request to be on the CNN Student News Roll Call.
