that would let fbi experts try millions of password combinations without threatening the data. apple has said it cannot unlock newer iphones for law enforcement. that' s because the phones are engineered in such a way that apple does not have a key to break the encryption. but the judge' s order in this case is not asking apple to break the encryption, simply disable the fail-safe erasing feature. apple is now vowing to fight the court order. lisa: zika worries spreading in central ohio. seven potential cases are now in the cdc' s hands. the concerns center in columbus and franklin county. health officials say the specimens involved people who recently traveled out of the u.s. it could take another three weeks for test results. >> those are individuals who have all traveled to one of the affected countries where we know zika' s is being actively transmitted by mosquitoes. lisa: zika is linked to severe birth defects. generally the virus is not life-threatening.
