New video shows George Zimmerman re-enacting incident with police

It's the most compelling evidence yet in the Trayvon Martin case – a new video released by George Zimmerman's attorneys today shows Zimmerman re-enacting his encounter and subsequent fight with Trayvon for police officers the day after the shooting.

Additionally, the defense team released audio of police interviews with Zimmerman from the week after the incident. Together they paint an almost-complete picture of Zimmerman's account of the events, but some experts are digging deeper into inconsistencies that have emerged between these and later interviews and statements.

OutFront tonight: Natalie Jackson, an attorney for the family of Trayvon Martin, and CNN legal analyst Mark NeJame.

Iran announced today that it has detected a "massive" cyber attack on its nuclear facilities and blamed America, Israel, and other Western powers for collaborating on the computer virus.

Officials in Tehran quickly added that they had managed to repel the attack, which came on the heels of a week of failed talks in Moscow aimed at negotiating an end to Iran's nuclear program. Is this the latest salvo in a growing cyber war between American and Iran? Erin Burnett talks to Bob Baer, a former C-I-A operative with decades of experience in the Middle East.

Romney's speech to Hispanic blasts Obama, lacks specific policy details

Mitt Romney spoke in front of the National Association of Latino Elected and Appointed Officials in Florida today, but despite pressure to offer his own immigration policy in the wake of Obama's annoucement earlier this week, he offered few specifics in his broad attack on President Obama's policies.

Erin Burnett is joined by John Avlon, Reihan Salam, and Vicki Soto, a fellow at the University of Texas who is at the conference in Florida, to discuss the effectiveness of this speech and Romney's continued outreach to minority voters.
