Harris is scheduled to speak at an abortion rights event today in Tucson [[ Too-sahn ]], Arizona. She was also in Phoenix last month to show opposition against attempts to limit or restrict abortion.        Americans in Israel are being given new security warnings based on reports Iran will launch a retaliatory strike on the country. The U.S. Embassy in Israel issued a security alert restricting travel for government employees and their families outside certain areas "until further notice." Three senior Iranian commanders were killed following an Israeli airstrike near Iran's embassy in Damascus, Syria.       Authorities say three people are in critical condition and a man is under arrest after intentionally crashing a stolen 18-wheeler into a Department of Public Safety building in east central Texas. The driver reportedly was angry he was denied a commercial driver's license yesterday. DPS officials say at least 16 people are being treated for injuries, although FOX News reports that none of the victims are DPS officers.       A co-anchor for the country's first hour-long nightly news broadcast has died. Robert MacNeil teamed with Jim Lehrer for "The MacNeil/Lehrer News Hour" on PBS. MacNeil was 93 years old.        Tiger Woods appears to be on pace to make the cut at The Masters.
