Russian appeal hearings end with no immediate decision

  Russian appeal hearings end with no immediate decision Forty-five Russian athletes are still waiting to hear if they will be allowed to compete at the Pyeongchang Olympics after their appeal hearing ended Thursday without a decision. The first competitions of the games - including a U.S.-Russia curling match - had already started when the Court of Arbitration for Sport heard the cases at a luxury resort in the mountains near Pyeongchang. ''(A ruling is expected) within the next 24 hours,'' said Philippe Baertsch, a lawyer for the Russians. ''We are hopeful that the panel will follow our argumentation and respect the rights of the athletes.

Trump administration sanctions aimed at Russian cyber meddling could come as early as next week: senior official .
The Trump administration could impose new sanctions on Russian entities as soon as next week, a senior administration official told CNN. Among the entities being considered for sanctions is the Internet Research Agency, a Kremlin-linked Russian troll group, the official said. The Internet Research Agency was at the heart of a federal indictment aimed at 13 Russian individuals announced last month by the Justice Department. Of the 13 indicted, 12 worked for the Internet Research Agency, setting up bogus social media accounts aimed at sowing discord in the 2016 American election, US officials alleged.
