3. Hillary Clinton declared herself “part of the resistance” to President Trump.

At a live event for a women’s nonprofit, Mrs. Clinton sharply questioned the president’s conduct in office and blamed the timing of an FBI inquiry into her email use for her election loss.

“If the election had been on October 27, I’d be your president,” she said.

4. Speaking of women in the White House, Ivanka Trump says she wants to be a moderating force. Here’s a look at her West Wing agenda.

5. Video from police body cameras could be crucial in the investigation into a fatal police shooting of a 15-year-old in Texas.

Jordan Edwards was in a car leaving the area of a house party east of Dallas on Saturday night when he was shot in the head. The officers had been responding to reports of underage drinking.

Jordan’s family released a statement saying his brothers “witnessed firsthand his violent, senseless murder” and asking people to refrain from protests in his name.

9. The offbeat pop opera “Natasha, Pierre & the Great Comet of 1812” earned 12 Tony nominations, more than any other show. Above, Denée Benton as Natasha.

10. Trekking season in the Himalayas produces tales of physical endurance and heartbreak every year. They are rarely as extreme as that of Liang Sheng-Yueh, above, and Liu Chen Chi.

He was taken to the hospital and is recovering.

“It was an act of love,” he said.
