In hour one of Here & Now's Dec. 28, 2017 full broadcast, we get an update from the BBC's Zia Shahreyar in the Afghan capital Kabul, where more than 40 people are dead after a series of suicide bomb attacks. Also, we round up the year in sports with Mike Pesca, from national anthem protests in the NFL to the Houston Astros' World Series victory. And, France's Constitutional Council is due to rule on the constitutionality of a new anti-terrorism law, which critics say could discriminate against the country's Muslim population. NPR's Eleanor Beardsley tells us more. You can read and hear more at, follow us on Twitter and join the conversation on Facebook and Tumblr.
