Today’s Highlight in History: On July 24, 1911, Yale University history professor Hiram Bingham III found the “Lost City of the Incas,” Machu Picchu, in Peru. (Although local residents had been aware of the site in the Andes, it was Bingham’s discovery that made it known to the world.)

Five years ago: The trial of Saddam Hussein and seven co-defendants resumed in Baghdad without the former Iraqi leader, who remained hospitalized after going on a hunger strike.
