term strategic partnership between the dieties states in nigeria as well as the ongoing if it to counter violent extremism throughout the region all in the name of the war on terror since nine eleven the pentagon has been hell bent on dropping bombs from on afghanistan yemen pakistan somalia the line up goes on really but for civilians in those countries a distant buzz up in the sky can be a death warrant in fact the u.s. drones have slaughtered some one and a half thousand civilians according to an estimate by the bureau of investigative journalism and the figure shouldn't really come as much of a surprise to anyone who's seen what has been among the drones targets.
the same unit which would be in charge of new drone operations is standing accused of killing ten civilians in somalia this summer something the u.s. africa command has denied now that the u.s. is apparently planning to open a new front in its drone war this could also mean more work for the pentagon's p.r. machine you've done of our. in october the death of four u.s. soldiers in an ambush in the genre revealed america's military presence in the country something even senior u.s. politicians seemed unaware of american troops were deployed under the a bomb the administration to help uneasy area and forces finds local terrorist cells african affairs analyst lawrence freeman says that west african countries come under a lot of pressure from their western allies probably worse than a thousand troops in the year and this will now give the increase that over
a thousand is the first time armed drones will be flying so this is a big problem for the men and for west africa and for all the africa. is now allowing united states to carry out these kinds of military attacks. you will not work it's not going to be successful without a larger strategic picture and the african countries now are being pressured by the west to metropolis creation to allow these armed drones in other new theory build up and i'm sure it's going to court the many many internal problems and it will not solve the problem of terrorism. about an art exhibition devoted to the concept of martyrdom has sparked controversy by featuring terrorists alongside the likes of socrates and martin luther king jr those behind the show say they want people to
think about what martyrdom really means peter all about how small. an exhibition called martyrs museum has just opened in the german capital alongside socrates and martin luther king jr it places that flew planes into the world trade center the attackers of the butter theater the suicide bomber that killed forty people on the moscow metro saying that they are all examples of people that gave their lives for the. they believed it it's all part of a festival of knowle the new european oh it's just the brainchild of today both the organizes and the artists themselves refused to either give us an interview or to allow me to film the exhibition they did send this e-mail. what do the people of bilin think about must mood or is being venerated in this way is it right to put these people on display in this type of exhibition here in the know from you
know life is just a reference i think that people would have differing perspectives obviously lumping different groups of people together is always a complicated subject because they come from different backgrounds i don't know i don't think so why. just be at two different types of people and it's not the same move we agree with even perspective on more news is not for us to decide because it is a pretty much us you know exhibition is about is about moving the psychology behind most of them will charge people to do certain things it's not a problem as long as the exhibition focuses on the differentiation of martyrdom that could potentially lead to murder or curses martyrdom that that you know the civil rights for example like that's just basic human rights the motto or. die only for themselves or believe yeah yeah in what they have believed and the other
murder because they count i'm not that person are many other persons i don't think that's but you can put the pieces together they all tests had previously explained to the media that the idea was to try and put yourself in the mindset of somebody who's willing to die for what they believed in even if that belief was horrific to you a sensory experience using lights and sounds to try to explain the old adage of one man's terrorist being another man's freedom fighter. the point is to present a complex view on the world of marx's and we understand that everyone has a different perspective but it's the personal perspective that matters in this exhibition but for some it's impossible to see the artistic intention beyond the reality of an exhibition that places mass murderers alongside civil rights champions peter all of r.t.
berlin. in one of the german city of hannover there have been fierce clashes between riot police and anti a.f.d. party protesters the activists who are trying to disrupt a congress of the party known for its anti immigration rhetoric. i. suppose they have i think i think they are and what happened was the comments were used against the protesters as they staged assisted find of the a.f.d. congress venue despite freezing temperatures in the city several people were injured the a.f.p. or alternative for germany is a right leaning posse mostly known for its harsh stance on immigration the party

to foreign countries by the way the great and the mccarthy former federal prosecutor writes today it's commonplace for an incoming national security advisor to go to foreign countries and talk to his counterparts or reach them on the phone in anticipation of a new administration there's nothing here that's that's that going to get trump or or course you're in trouble. essentially american republic of honduras has imposed a nationwide curfew and civil unrest and the allegations of ballot stuffing in the wake of its presidential election.
