 From NPR News in Washington, I'm Louise Schiavone. 

An international summit on nuclear security gets underway in Seoul, South Korea this week, with both President Obama and South Korean President Lee warning North Korea against a planned missile launch.
“The real consequence, should they go forward with a launch, is they will have missed an opportunity.”
North Korea's rocket launch is planned for next month. The president today visited US troops in a demilitarized zone separating North and South Korea. He told the troops they are on freedom's frontier.  
In Afghanistan, there’s been a US payout to victims and their relatives in the wake of an apparent shooting rampage by a US soldier. NPR's Quil Lawrence has details.
According to Afghan officials in Kandahar province in the South, villagers have reported that they met with US officials; US military officials paid them compensation about 50,000 dollars for each of the 17 victims of the massacre1 on March 11th and about 11,000 dollars for each of the wounded victims. And this was the first contact between the US military apparently2 and the survivors3 of the killings4
NPR's Quil Lawrance reporting from Kabul. 
Hundreds of Israelis rally against a military strike on Iran. As Linda Gradstein reports, other Israelis are posting Facebook posters or visiting an art exhibit on Iran.
Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu has repeatedly said that a nuclear-armed Iran is an existential danger to Israel, and Israel will not rule out a military option. Yet, some Israelis say they oppose an Israeli strike on Iran. In Tel Aviv, hundreds of Israelis are calling on the government not to attack Iran, saying it would cost billions of dollars and might not be effective. Other Israelis are uploading posters of themselves on Facebook with signs that read “Iranians, we will never bomb your country. We love you.” Some Iranians are posting similar images with their faces blurred5 or removed. For NPR News, I'm Linda Gradstein in Jerusalem.
GOP presidential hopeful Rick Santorum says he will not accept a notion that the Republican contest is over, and that Mitt6 Romney is the inevitable7 nominee8. He says his victory this weekend in Louisiana demonstrates that.
“Governor Romney is not gonna be able to pound Barack Obama into the ground by outspending them 20-1. We’re gonna have someone who’s gonna, who can beat him on the issues, who can connect with voters, and that's why we won Louisiana last night. I think that’s what we're going to do well here in Wisconsin.”
Santorum spoke9 on CBS’ “Face the Nation.” The next GOP primaries are April 3rd in Wisconsin, the District of Columbia and Maryland.
The movie adaptation of the teen literally10 sensation “Hunger Games” now setting a record.

Slowly but surely people are queuing up for the Supreme11 Court’s consideration of the health care reform law that took effect two years ago. At this hour on this gloomy day, about a dozen people are standing12 in line at the Supreme Court steps. Oral arguments are open to the public, but seating is limited and granted on the first-come, first-served basis. The issue has been a political lightening rod, and the decision by the justices will no doubt play into the election-year debate.
A political scandal has erupted in Britain. A senior fundraiser for the ruling conservatives has been caught on camera, offering access to the prime minister in return for big donations to the party. NPR's Philip Reeves says that official has now resigned.
Peter Cruddas, co-treasure of the Conservative Party, was filmed by undercover reporters from Rupert Murdoch's Sunday Times. Cruddas talks about donations of the equivalent of up to 400,000 dollars and about access to Prime Minister David Cameron and Finance Minster George Osborne.
“When we talk about your donations, the first thing we want to do is get you at the Cameron/Osborne dinners.”
Donors13 can try to influence policy, says Cruddas.
“If you’re unhappy about something, we will listen to you and will put it into the policy committee at number 10.”
Cruddas has now quit, saying he regrets what he calls is bluster14. The Conservative Party says it always ensures all donations comply with the law. But this incident is a big blow to Cameron, who came into power promising15 to curb16 corporate17 lobbying. Philip Reeves, NPR News, London.
In Silao, Mexico, the atmosphere was festival as the Pope greeted hundreds of thousands of Mexican Catholics.
