Good morning from the CNN center in Atlanta, I'm Reggie Aqui. Here is a look at what's happening right in NOW IN THE NEWS.

AIG's CEO is on Capitol Hill today. Edward Liddy is expected to answer questions from lawmakers about huge bonuses paid to executives despite the fact that the government forked over billions to keep the company afloat. Well, now the government wants some of that money back. Senators are also working on a plan to tax the bonuses given by companies that got bailout money.

A new report shows inflation is running a little higher than expected. Consumer prices rose 0.4% last month. It's the biggest jump in seven months, the main culprit, higher gas prices. And a brand-new CNN poll shows the economy is forcing some Americans to spend less on daily necessities and delay big purchases. 32% say they've cut back on food and medicine in the past six months, families making less than 25,000 dollars were hit the hardest.

Pope Benedict XVI is courting controversy1 in Africa with his stance on condom use. On his first papal visit to Africa, the pope is telling Africa's bishops2 to defend traditional family values by refusing to soften3 the Vatican's ban on condom use. The pontiff is on a seven-day trip to the continent.

Josef Fritzl says watching his daughter's taped testimony4 led to his surprising plea change. The 73-year-old Austrian now says he is guilty of murder and enslavement as well as rape5, incest and other charges. Both verdict and sentencing are expected soon, Fritzl faces life in prison.

Astronauts will soon start installing new solar wings on the international space station. Space shuttle Discovery docked with the station yesterday. The seven-member shuttle crew greeted the space station members shortly afterward6. Today they are gonna remove the solar wings from the shuttle's payload bay.
