The president also visited Berlin, where he spoke about wanting to reduce the number of nuclear weapons in both the U.S. and Russia.

Award-winning actor James Gandolfini died. Gandolfini, famous for his role as Tony Soprano on the HBO series The Sopranos, was in Italy when he died of an apparent heart attack.
