to move that number to 0 in afghanistan the pentagon has said it wants to see a cut of about a 3rd from about 12013002 about 8500 and that's because of the pentagon's view the afghan military isn't strong enough to protect the country from external threats or to maintain the peace within its borders and so the u.s. has an interest in staying in afghanistan before he left to go to doha for saturday's signing ceremony the secretary of state micron peo told reporters earlier this week that the u.s. also has a counterterrorism a concern in afghanistan and so there is still going to be some sort of u.s. military presence that may not sit well with the taliban but that's certainly one of the issues on the table the other issue getting back some 5000 taliban fighters out of the custody of the afghan military certainly the taliban wants its
people back there those in the afghan government who say no this could create a new internal security threat but that is something that is also being considered as part of this agreement a 2nd person in california with no travel history or contact with existing cases has been infected with corona virus the world health organization has raised this risk assessments of the outbreak to the highest level across the world. more from los angeles. this is a person who is in northern california described as a woman who had some underlying respiratory disease problems and her doctor sent her to the hospital she was tested there and tested positive for the corona virus she had what the important thing here she didn't get it on a cruise ship she didn't meet with someone who just got off a plane from warhol and she hasn't been to italy or iran or south korea or any of

is the most difficult to cover making it the perfect crime. in bosnia rwanda that there are critics republic of congo and syria women and children have usually been the main targets but in pre and post revolution libya it's men has often been the main victims but no one has ever been able to prove that. in libya rape is a taboo subject mentioned the word silence prevailed. one woman did speak out
in public in march 20 levon i just thought of that evolution. that. the man in our baby was accusing the gadhafi regime of raping opponents and how cry resonated around the world. gadhafi was overthrown but libya was plunged into a civil war. the rumors of rape continued and while the international community expressed concern this did not turn into action. libya is still in a state of political and social chaos and tens of thousands of refugees have fled many towards europe. it effectively has 2 rival governments militias rule the streets and the rumors of rape persist but no one
for. the next 7. give you. might out of school in law school i mean that's what i'm here to learn i mean my easy. money. mr moore how did you finish out of the enemy. in libya to madonna man you was a public prosecutor in the chaos that followed the overthrow of gadhafi in october 2011 he said members of the opposition to jail for murder the very next day they were released and threatened to kill him so just. so he left libya. in tunis he has joined a group of libyan activist fellow exile. he's put together
a group which now tracks alleged crimes committed in their homeland. the video evidence brought to him by a man is shocking. so much to people. that's a mistake to believe to call a. marine one of the. emoticon for office if you do have that he doesn't even know. what do you think of address by this letter a new video of the stuff that's going to. the. so. just so.
said he said the landlady. said you know. he thought of computer book of yeah and then. the thing you have to get out of. stephan if you think. i'm a black sheep or model in the cuttack a mother i'm a father can be a really. really good to see that kind of pain and. so to be with my father going to tell us no. doubt a few of. the one as a. kid. was i got. the 100 out of it kind of how do we live with the fullest. but that was not the familiar
theme of course to do. so if you will the polluted. and the you know we could go you know if you could change. well into the whole kitchen much of a lead on a mock. quiz finesse called when you want to step can make you still miss that city if you get out maybe looks the magic to know life lives are lost maybe looks election day out of government yes i've got a good action and up above the bottom of the fly you have your pov on something. i will look cool you know instead it would. have been i'm going to take your comments on a mission. in libya reap is such a taboo that is simply not open for discussion.
i meant as a human rights activist operating on the ground but he's determined to bring the issue of rape out into the open. because he has received death threats a man to carry his entire life in a suitcase and he never sleeps in the same place. one of his contacts is a man known simply as a sea. change or she will do what you will to hold. a local school. and lock.
the case with one. for years just see really inside but all the time he knew about men and women who had been raped and who needed help . in fact he was talking about himself. when the scene arrived in tunis he didn't want his identity revealed and his voice here is this guy. you know this and you will have a high with me and i did to want to you have to really think i did it to me and i'm going to air this office office i just hate
he talked about men raped and then released defiled men whom no one ever mentions. i imagine the question was now how many of them were now wandering the streets of tunis before returning to libya and hiding their shame inside. and the women the men asked. them why let's down the list. why you. see them just a lot better for just some so i just. looked this up my best. wish for a little high enough so it can. every day
a mad meets victims of abuses suffered in libya and meticulously records everything they say. but most refused to talk about. this man in his ear has been imprisoned for 6 years. i know you haven't thought a got here. she shifts shift mommas of to. shake a north idea. limits to feel. good god even when are you going to visit the work on the one about the little mother i wonder if we.
don't believe them when he did offer them gammas it was kind of who could tell the truth not as it were the girl for a book and it's. like a little of zimmerman a little clinic going out of session i. have to show. that they're going to. get other mostly of sitting up guardian let alone their reasonably honest look and it can we don't interfere. with the legal guardian. would warm one of them over the difficulty year of the duration of the. lea. he saw him awfully muscular school flakier. sure yet.
if he had met an idea. when there will be a few support of. the ship lee. if it will mean that he had been of the tearful decision much of the saw. when a book or in a family. like many others nazir simply avoids the question only revenge matters to him. but without official complaints and statements he may not count initiate any legal proceedings the rape trial remains empty the crime simply doesn't exist.
and a man spent several months listening to many libyan victims of abuse gathering a wealth of detailed information. but they case still lacked the kind of hard evidence they would need in order to make a cage strong enough to stand up in international criminal court. they also badly needed outside expertise. day knows libya well. she's a french lawyer specializing in international law and has 20 years of experience tracking sexual violence in conflicts around the world.
in 2013 she helped draft a law aimed at protecting rape victims under the gadhafi regime but diligence lation was never elected. by dates experience is that the war crimes do not simply go away if no legal action is taken they would continue to be committed. we are. a team it's not just me and imad we have many libyans here and we have our need to work inside on the ground and what we are trying to do we have trying to collect a lot of documentation from different organizations a sense 2011 since ok since 200-5002 live.
there is sometimes not just militias. do the crime there is people are working for ministry of the. minister of fun tear out can deal with this kind. you know that recently at the i.c.c. for rape you know the case bomba he was sentence and he didn't rape nobody but she was sentence for rape because he ordered it or him knew that it was happening and he didn't do nothing so that's a very important case because night existing the jurisprudence and this is also something we can use in our our case for almost 3 issues really so close of what you were to mention how we count toward together our team and you and your team to solomon this case is internationally going to you know of the idea is all the
case you have each individual situation that you may have collected each time we need to look at when it happened and where it happened because if you don't do that you get killed before a court that's why i am telling you this we have to work on that and to to show our systematic it is you know and then you have a case. legally speaking. you are in a. in a special situation. because you cannot bring a case. but it doesn't mean that it does to stop now i think we can work on that to put pressure towards international in stones you are been you know manic cetera and prepare a case for the i.c.c. and we need to push for the i.c.c. so we have to show that this is a priority and to bring a something. love. is room.
for the international criminal court to agree to take on a case because believe in human rights activist in tunis would 1st have to establish that the war crime had been committed in their homeland. meanwhile you're seeing resurfaced this time ready to tell his story. it revolves around the seizure of his city. by government troops for 3 months in 2011. the forces were based in 2 out of the 50 kilometers away whose residents were then accused of supporting the government action in the. we. misperceive. honey you know.
popular in the far. you can do in the mean ministry are unique and you need ok in the bum but he thought i was in as to one cause in a can and a d. in and heart of. marble. that was in the minute when the so you. believe it's that he'd been you there on the your logic of the out of our tickets because they had to have also which models. you need a different but would have. been in the had it in was more it's a wash. and you bit that deep. in it that deep it will fly hostler. he thought the free had them or filled.
with power which it seems to hate in the wonder we had for him to be he missed that he. couldn't even admission a full minute to condemn what had he had in america has said in. here seem believes that since that night in march 2011 he's become sterile but he's never had a test because he didn't think you could trust anyone to do. however tunas offers him the anonymity he needs to see a doctor ahead of you. in the. new
system you have this is. what it. is. you're seen apparently needs more tests and medical examinations but it seems to be too much for him and he disappears off the radar again. he said but that put into the national. military see foresee it tipped off it was pretty. if you persevere with a love interest in the making levy you know what you are not let the future and the. city by not fully rescinded i mean you might say of course you completely got the idea to be quite still of your league usually of making mark in parliament but don't these occupy david buckley report look really really poorly listening to the stuff yeah somebody. initially made you demurely if you know.
it if you do yeah but the mother don't need the city. is it s. we show compassion and you don't get it in the open if you want to get. step into the unknown with central america's 1st ever theatrical production by actors with down syndrome. a life journey illuminated on stage each performer transformed with the raise of occurred to. witness time to love a backstage take. on
a. one of the really special things about working for others here is that even as a camera woman i get to have so much empathy and contribution to a story i feel weaker this region better than anyone else working for it is you know it's very challenging the body but the good because you have a lot of people that are divided on political issues we are we the people we live to tell the real story so i'll just mandate is to deliver in-depth journalism we don't feel in favor to the audience across the globe. over 70 years after one tribe's epic journey from palestine to the nile delta out 0 world meets the largest concentration of $948.00 refugees in egypt. the socially isolated community with your rights fighting to survive and keep the palestinian heritage alive in a world where there was and is increasingly marginalized egypt's for the island on

same practice. in the spring of 2017 the international criminal court took action issued an indictment against a former senior government official supporter. to be committed during the revolution. the badly needed concrete evidence particularly to demonstrate the district of rape has continued long after the revolution. for this and the spied the risks they had to return to.
the 5000000. what a lot of lots. of the but there weren't that many it's like that get on with it after that. one can look. at what names we get to what it will be for good which happened about that in itself. but it was good at the book we get to. know how pretty you know me. of course i reckon the fish the fish higher than you. look at that people would win the lottery one of the ship of. the group arrived in the capital tripoli which is still in constant state of flux

reflected the fact that being from the twilight he and his fellow residents were designated for special treatment. of guns were largely descendants from slaves and so are black so they were often considered 2nd class libyan citizens but then they were also accused without conclusive proof of having support of the government sees of misrata and taken part in rape along with the gadhafi supporters in rebel cities like misrata. a madman activist from 2 hours ago who had recorded the abuse suffered by the people. well you. know they had lists of missing persons
former prisoners the names of secret prisons and exact dates. the case was that water guns were being targeted kidnapped and systematically persecuted yes. the evidence pointed towards having become a major target. the implications were that a major human rights violation and alleged crime had been committed.
a look at the numbers this is something. there how the. we were hard driving no one there and i've been saying you know for certain that the toughest will be. hold for the house did this come osha has come a hum so. we decided of the students of. color who are easy it would be intimate for the what if i just thought that there's different sort of totally different sort of don't feel like having a good cup of coffee is you're not a good person are going to get up and soon settle in the dark that if you're not fun generally but really. it's. good to let your phone but not the company 1st.
then good luck good for the gifted i know if it. has are going to only go and so that's the scene and to me that would have to something that. it didn't have to from the start but the mint standard situation. decision ends on a new one to 9 months in the 1st and on the part of the nudity terma looked at him and into boarding an intercity. recommendation that. the bullet did more that good that is than the master's degree in shadow district when i have that kind of you know stonyfield absentee man. is an attorney and it's not for certain that you have to look in the sense that it's a. gap and perhaps that the tenets you're standing on for starting a law that are out of mine are for my fantastic start to be sort of an option and
had to live there thinking. of. men was to keep me out of it if i wanted money got nothing to do for our modern understanding. of what moderates could. lose but the problem does not stop and look and i've been here for. something a dentist unless looked at one supply from the start to a cup of. can got to be in the correct one i. can book good that's where the bad story about mcknight made that hesitation i wanted to calculate had nothing that i don't didn't.
give i lucked into will to go beyond the love island or be done cool look and she should pick it up there is a talking to that is at the heart of see. when they get their little it is my fault but the result of the is that this new. low risk of the 3rd lauren of wilson right. now and then not going to change for gladness and she. gets done and. i'm glad not a member didn't now and then but that one of the tick. especially when you before you learn to really make it. front.

how they do feel what money and who are so. on the wrong track. you have. said. it is ridiculous skits likely have a lot. of your. take you won't when you have massive i'll tell you. that i want to go. to know an example. where they came together they can control humanity can you say yay or nay 20 years i think i say we're going to put it on what. you need. as said on while our. father had 6 in line to get his genius it passed. then. discovering. it is. the
