I'm Carl Azuz.
Welcome to CNN STUDENT NEWS.
First up, a hearing in the U.S. House of Representatives .
This is about an attack on an American facility that happened last year in Libya.
It was September 11, 2012, the terror attack targeted the U.S. consulate building, a government building in the city of Benghazi.
Four Americans were killed including ambassador Chris Stevens, America's top representative in Libya.
Some members of Congress have criticized President Obama and his administration for the response to that attack.
What was done, what was said.
At first, the administration officials said the attack developed out of a protest over an anti-Islamic film made in the U.S.
Later they said, it was a planned terrorist attack.
During yesterday's hearing, congressmen talked to former government officials about what information was known and when.
Was there any evidence when you were there in Libya on that day that this was a protest?
No, there was none.
And I'm confident that Ambassador Stevens would have reported a protest immediately if one appeared on his door.
The protocol , of course, was for us to evacuate immediately the—from the consulate and move to the annex.
Did you report to anyone in Washington within the first couple of days that there was anything in connection?
The protest in connection to a Youtube video.
No, the only report that our mission made through every channel was that there had been an attack on a consulate.
Not a protest?
The chairman of the committee said the goal of this hearings is to get answers, because the victims ' families deserve them.
The British government's legislative branch, its Congress, is called Parliament.
And its new session started yesterday with a long standing tradition:
the Queen's speech,by the British government and then ceremonially read by the British monarch .
The speech includes some of the big issues that Parliament expects to face during its new session.
In yesterday's speech, Queen Elizabeth II said this:
My government will continue to make the case for Scotland to remain part of the United Kingdom.
OK, here's the deal with that:
the United Kingdom is made up of four places: England, Wales, Scotland and Northern Ireland.
Next year, Scots are set to vote on whether they want to stay in the U.K or to become an independent country.
