i've always been excited for what's next. i'm still going for my best... even though i live with a higher risk of stroke due to afib not caused by a heart valve problem. so if there's a better treatment than warfarin, i'll go for that. eliquis. eliquis is proven to reduce stroke risk better than warfarin. plus has significantly less major bleeding than warfarin. eliquis is fda-approved and has both. what's next? sharing my roots. don't stop taking eliquis unless your doctor tells you to, as stopping increases your risk of having a stroke. eliquis can cause serious and in rare cases fatal bleeding. don't take eliquis if you have an artificial heart valve or abnormal bleeding. while taking eliquis, you may bruise more easily and it may take longer than usual for any bleeding to stop. seek immediate medical care for sudden signs of bleeding, like unusual bruising. eliquis may increase your bleeding risk if you take certain medicines. tell your doctor about all planned medical or dental procedures.

1:18 am
fred, nothing to worry about here. >> reporter: yeah, i think quite a lot to worry about right now, christine. certainly if you look at the situation here in the persian gulf area between the u.s. and iran, there's a bit of a dispute as to where this drone was apparently shot down. as you mentioned, the u.s. says that it was in international air space above straight of hormuz. the iranians were saying 2459 drone actually violated their air space and was somewhat south of the straight of hormuz. they're putting it over iranian territory. i have a little breaking news for you guys because the head of iran's revolutionary guard corps came out a couple of minutes ago. this is the unit that apparently shot this drone down. he says it's a clear warning to the united states and he also says that iran's air space and its territorial integrity are red lines that anybody who surpasses them or transgresses them will not come back. so it's a pretty bellicose
1:19 am
rhetoric. christine, the iranians about a week ago for the first time showcased one of their new air defense systems which they say was highly technologically advanced. it's unclear whether or not that was involved in this particular incident, but the iranians certainly have been showcasing their air defense system. all of this coming as those tensions between the u.s. and iran show no signs of being dialed down. of course, after that incident took place with those two tankers last week which the u.s. continues to blame on the iranians, the iranians saying it wasn't them, both sides saying they don't want war. the iranians saying if war happens they are fully prepared. christine. >> we're glad you're there for us in tehran. fred pleitgen parsing all of this. ahead, two people killed after a semitruck crashes and explodes on a wisconsin highway. >> it's the most horrific thing
