palestinians. very beginning of the british mandate it was obvious they loved the jews they supplied them with everything including weapons tanks food everything. was they really put pressure on us the law was that if a single bullet was found in the hands of a palestinian he would be hanged immediately. mohammed fought with other palestinians against the arms zionist groups that attacked the villages before the creation of israel. at first we didn't really know what. only later did you realize it meant giving a national home to the jews at the time we were not really able to win the war with the jewish groups simply britain favored the jews and give them our land to establish their own state and we had no other choice but to flee and leave our lands mohammed would be among the seven hundred thousand palestinians who fled what in one thousand nine hundred forty eight had just become israel. a hundred years

from an attack which destroyed lives sparking debate over how to prevent another christian salumi al-jazeera new york. transformer campaign chairman has appeared in court accused of conspiracy against the united states and money laundering paul manifolds says the criminal case brought by the special counsel robert mueller is embellished his lawyers defended him as a successful political consultant who was involved in the international financial transactions as part of his work the judge has ordered him to remain under home arrest. well newly released documents recovered from osama bin laden's baucus thun compound shows secret dealings between iran and al qaeda the cia says the files including videos documents on face has provided more insights into how bin laden ran the al-qaeda and why he wanted to wage war on the west all state department correspondent rosalind jordan reports. according to the cia the man in this wedding
video may well be the future leader of al qaida homs a bin laden one of the sons of osama bin ladin the video is one of hundreds of thousands of materials taken during the raid on the al qaeda leader's home in a bought a bought pakistan on may first two thousand and eleven the cia says it's trying to give the public as much insight into his operations at the time u.s. special forces captured and killed bin laden i think it's important for everybody in both united states and the rest of the world have access to these so they can make their own judgments rather having to rely on the interpretation of any government including that of the united states included in this the fourth release of materials from a bottom bod bin laden's personal journal and policy documents videos of him practicing speeches and what the cia calls propaganda material. some of the big
issues dominating material includes al qaida split with i saw over religious and operational policy bin laden's plans to use the arab spring uprisings for al qaeda as benefit and his plans to rehabilitate his reputation in order to get more support from muslims worldwide some of the documents also apparently reveal a much closer link between al qaida a sunni inspired group and iran a shia country experts say that could be important in light of current u.s. policy toward terror on long term strategically the government of iran sees al qaeda as a threat true. both the state and to the shia religion however short term tactically if they can gain advantage particularly against the united states they will cooperate with al qaeda including sheltering leading al qaeda figures if information is power then the international community now has more insight into how al qaeda operated in two thousand and eleven the challenge will be determining just
how relevant this information is today rosalyn jordan al-jazeera washington throughout the past decade voles an eight hundred journalists have been killed while doing their jobs through the cases have been solved but in mexico twenty seventeen is said to be a record for the number of journalists but it was john home and reports. eleven killed so far this year just for doing their jobs because one of the most dangerous countries in the world for journalists among them happy about there is a middle slava breach internationally renowned reporters who investigated government corruption and organized crime now they're gone but it's not just that there that's worrying press freedom groups it's what comes after after half year was worth it even in these two high profile cases months later still no one's been arrested one of the main consequences of the impunity is that journalists start censoring themselves they stop reporting on organized crime to stop reporting on
corruption and as a result the entire areas in mexico basically have no serious journalistic coverage or if the gate of journalism going on. free speech groups estimate that ninety nine point seven percent of verbal or physical attacks against journalists go on punished in mexico. ricardo sanchez is the special prosecutor for crimes against free speech in the last six years it's only been three convictions what's going on . this is a very complicated issue the federal government and attorney general's office know we face a big challenge in beating the impunity. we created a group to execute arrest warrants with the federal police and get people before a judge so we're doing important work i recognize we've got a long way to go we're working hard with the state governments. cinna lower stay in the grip of crime is one of the most dangerous for reporters. martin didn't fled
after getting threats it still bothers him that the articles he and other journalists risk their lives for make little impact in an often openly corrupt society. i think sometimes it's kind of a suicidal calling you wonder why should we run these stories because we know things aren't going to change. martin and around five hundred other journalists are in a government protection program that free speech groups say authorities themselves are actually responsible for the majority of attacks on the press and that really doesn't bode well as we head into what's going to be a fiercely fought election season if politicians are willing to use violence against journalists and if there are virtually no consequences for doing so that spells bad news for the more kristie john home and how does it or mexico city.
