ATHENS, Greece (AP) — President Barack Obama will deliver a speech to the Greek people today as he wraps up his visit to the country. Earlier today, the president visited the famous ancient monument, the Acropolis citadel. The Greek people have pinned their hopes on Obama being able to persuade some of the financially stricken country's more reluctant international creditors to grant debt relief and to pressure other European countries to share more of the burden in the refugee crisis.

TEHRAN, Iran (AP) — Iranian President Hassan Rouhani (hah-SAHN' roh-HAH'-nee) says his country will remain committed to a landmark nuclear deal with world powers regardless of who the next U.S. president is. Rouhani spoke on state TV today, saying, "If a president is changed here and there, it has no impact on the will of Iran." In his campaign, President-elect Donald Trump had criticized the deal that capped Iran's nuclear activities in return for lifting international economic sanctions.

WASHINGTON (AP) — Turkey's president is criticizing protests in the United States against Donald Trump, saying the president-elect should be respected and given time to show how he will govern. Turkish President Recep Tayyip Erdogan (REH'-jehp TY'-ihp UR'-doh-wahn) says protesters are "attacking" Trump because "the person they wanted wasn't elected president." And Erdogan tells Americans to "show some respect."

WASHINGTON (AP) — The Obama administration will come crashing to a halt on Jan. 20, Inauguration Day. And that means about 500 White House staffers who work for President Barack Obama will lose their jobs. Obama and his team have brought in representatives from Facebook, Instagram and other companies to offer insights into the job market. And officials from LinkedIn are helping White House staffers identify ways to market their skills.

RENO, Nev. (AP) — FBI agents investigating an armed robbery at a Reno, Nevada, bank walked into a nearby casino and asked a 76-year-old man eating lunch what he did for a living. Agents say Tommy Ray McAdoo answered, "I used to rob banks." Prosecutors are accusing McAdoo of making off with more than $2,700 in a paper grocery sack in last week's bank robbery. He's been in and out of prison since the mid-1960s. And records say McAdoo recently moved into the local homeless shelter because he couldn't afford to pay his monthly rent.
