Editor's note: Anderson Cooper reports on the Casey Anthony trial.
The mosque at the presidential palace in Yemen came under fire, killing a Muslim preacher and some bodyguards. Several people were also injured, including President Ali Abdullah Saleh. The attack comes amid fears of an all-out civil war after weeks of deadly protest against the government. We'll have the latest developments. Plus, former presidential candidate and North Carolina senator John Edwards is indicted by a federal grand jury. He's accused of of using campaign funds to cover up an affair with a campaign worker, with whom he also fathered a child. He's pleaded not guilty to the charges and insists he "did not break the law."

Reporter's Note: The president seems pretty fit. Maybe that’s from going to the mailbox for my letter every day!
Dear Mr. President,
I assume you have been following the NBA Playoffs, just as I have been hawk-eyeing the Stanley Cup Finals, and even making allowance for the obvious superiority of hockey over basketball, I will allow that the action has been pretty fun on all fronts. I am more impressed by professional athletes the older I get - not in the starry-eyed, teen “they are so cool” kind of way but more in the older, been around the block, “and I know just how difficult it is to pull off some of those tricks” kind of way. It is awe-inspiring to imagine that any human being can move that fast, hit that hard, and exhibit such control and finesse under such duress.
But here’s a more important question: In which sports are you participating these days?
Anderson Cooper goes beyond the headlines to tell stories from many points of view, so you can make up your own mind about the news. Tune in weeknights at 8 and 10 ET on CNN.
