In an exclusive interview with CNN's Alex Thomas (@alexthomascnn), Former Real Madrid and Barcelona star Luis Figo (@LuisFigo) announces his intention to run against Sepp Blatter for the FIFA presidency.
On why he is entering the race
“I care about football so what I’m seeing regarding the image of FIFA - not only now but in the past years – I don’t like it”
“If you search FIFA on the internet you see the first word that comes out: scandal, not positive words. It’s that we have to change first and try to improve the image of FIFA. Football deserves much better than this.” FULL POST

FAREED ZAKARIA, Host of CNN’s FAREED ZAKARIA GPS: So when Americans think about Saudi Arabia and specifically, I think they find it almost incomprehensible; this is a place where a blogger is sentenced to 1,000 lashes for expressing his opinions, where women can't drive, they can't work without a male member of the family's permission.
What would you say to them if they asked, why are we so closely allied with this regime when we now out-produce it in oil?
BARACK OBAMA, PRESIDENT OF THE UNITED STATES: Well, what we'd say to them is that it is important for us to take into account existing relationships, the existing alignments within a very complicated Middle East, to recognize that we have strategic interests in common with Saudi Arabia and that even as we work on those common interests, for example, countering terrorist organizations, that we are also encouraging them to move in new directions, not just for our sake but more importantly for their sake.

***UPDATE: "Voices of Auschwitz" will now air Wednesday, January 28 at 9PM ET.***
Eva Kor arrived at Auschwitz with her mother and twin sister in 1944, when she was just 10-years old. That day on the selection platform was the last time she would ever see her mother again. Eva’s mother was sent directly to the gas chamber. For the next nine months, Eva and her sister Miriam were housed in a rat-infested bunk with 300 other children and subjected to medical experiments daily. Despite the daily torture, Eva was determined to survive, telling CNN’s Wolf Blitzer: “I was not going to perish here in Auschwitz.” When liberation finally came on January 27, 1945, Eva and Miriam were at the front of the line as the children were led out of Auschwitz.
This one-hour special report, airing on the 70th anniversary of the camp’s liberation, will look back at the atrocities committed at Auschwitz through the eyes of those imprisoned there more than 70 years ago. In addition to Eva Kor, three other survivors tell their stories of torture, loss, hopelessness and, finally, liberation and survival.
