graves when six hundred ninety thousand but in general fled me and why since the military crackdown was launched in august last year scott hides a report from. the associated press news agency has released a video it says confirms reports of a massacre of revenge of muslims in myanmar last year a.p. says the pictures of here to show the bodies of half buried may. its investigation suggest at least five previously unreported mass graves have been found the news agency spoke to villagers who say the number of dead could be as high as four hundred miles in the us the other a good amount of. whoever was injured but still alive after the attack was thrown into flames young men like myself managed to escape the attack but others like small children and women couldn't run away in time for when they were either killed or tied up and thrown inside homes by the military which they burnt down using launchers. you know it's not the massacre took place in dark in a kind state and
a few weeks ago for the first time the military here said that soldiers were involved in civilian deaths it acknowledged one mass grave containing the bodies of ten rangers it's called terrorists the u.n. says reports of more mass graves warrants further investigation. i do not have the details of this particular site or the village that's graves but it is. it is. you can see it's a pattern that we said earlier. you know we had that tonight to leave massa but india is where the mass graves were discovered. but when i was talking to some of the refugees amounted to me he had he had buried four hundred in thirty plus body before he escaped his town. and i received growing names of people who. let you kill or
missing so this is something that needs to be investigated and this is why we've called for a fact finding mission and human rights watch says there's growing evidence of genocide in rakhine state what is most worrisome about this report beyond obviously the killings is now the effort to cover this up that they discovered. in some instances acid is being used to burn off the features of the people killed or burned off the fingerprints to try to obstruct any accountability and that shows a degree of pre-planning that will really i think impact the international community's decisions about whether this is constitutes genocide or not you know mars government has previously denied any reports of a massacre it has now cut off access to good up in other than tightly controlled government trip to the area in northern with kind state where there was violence has been closed off to the u.n. humanitarian groups and journalists got hi there al jazeera yangon.
yes the eyes questioning the accuracy of a secret congressional mammal that claims law enforcement tools were used for political purposes in the twenty sixteen presidential election the memo written by top republicans and members of the house intelligence committee suggest the f.b.i. and justice department misused their powers whilst investigating the trump campaign but pickens voted on monday to publicly release the document well that move is opposed by the department of justice and democrats who say republicans amended the takes after it was voted on they also say it's part of a wind a effort to undermine the pool by robot mode he's investigating claims of russian meddling in the election and potential clues in the trunk campaign well our white house correspondent kelly how he joins me now live from washington d.c. hi there kimberly so what do we know about the contents then of this memo. well
there is a significant push here at the white house and also the republicans on capitol hill who want this public because they believe that this classified document the which the white house we're told is set to or has already declassified it will show the american public that the department of justice and the f.b.i. particularly were weaponized in terms of being used for political purposes essentially that well under the obama administration there were people inside those institutions working to undermine not just the presidential campaign but also our holdover is now working to undermine donald trump's presidency and for this reason there is this push to make it public but as you pointed out democrats have grave concerns not just the f.b.i. which we should note is currently being run by an appointee by donald trump which makes this particularly unusual that the the president's clashing with an
intelligence surface that is head up essentially by someone he appointed but the fact is is that there is deep concern in sort of the ability of these institutions now to do their job democrats are saying that this is a purely political effort and are pointing the fingers at the white house pointing the fingers at republicans and fact the top democrat in the u.s. senate chuck schumer said of the committee that is behind all of this that it will simply stop at nothing to undermine the rule of law and interfere with the russia probe so some pretty strong feelings on both sides with regard to the release of this memo which we expect now could it head back up to capitol hill and be released potentially any time between now and friday so if this is really really what's the likely fall i'm saying. well certainly there is going to be public opera or there certainly is a lack of declining public confidence as a result not just of these institutions which are being rose eroded by those that
like for instance the president for instance lawmakers but also there's a lack of trust now in terms of who to believe it's become almost a he said she said because you have to remember that democrats themselves authored their own memo but because republicans controlled the house of representatives and in turn the control of the committees they did not allow for the democratic member to be released so people are going to do as they often do here in the united states right now in this highly polarized political climate they're going to believe the side that they tend to already be on and that is just going to further drive a wedge between the american public and the lawmakers that are supposed to be setting the example can be how can they live from the white house kimberly thank you. israel says it's adamantly opposed to a polish bill that would make it illegal to suggest the poland was complicit in the nazi holocaust horns up or has approved the draft legislation despite objections
from both israel and the us are a false reports on the reaction in israel to the move. in the early hours of thursday morning polish senators voted to pass a bill that israel says is designed to hide the truth about poland's role in the holocaust nazi occupied poland was the second world war site of some of the worst horrors of the holocaust the concentration camp at auschwitz birkenau has become its most potent symbol but poland objects to terms such as polish death camps instead of nazi ones pointing out poles were victims of invasion then occupation is what is remarkable growth we are very sad and surprised our fight for the truth for the dignity of paul's is perceived and interpreted in this way as. the bill would punish without the three years' imprisonment anyone accusing the polish nation of complicity in the extermination of the jews the domestic opponents of the proposed law its terms to groove. now for the sort of public discussion should take place
without any obstacles it cannot take place under the supervision of the prosecutor who after poland's lower house voted the bill through last friday israel's prime minister called it an attempt to rewrite history demanding the proposed legislation be amended the israeli government says it adamantly opposed to this second vote adding that no law can change historical truth and there is support in the israeli parliament the knesset for a bill here to challenge the polish one by offering protection legally to anyone prosecuted for their views on the holocaust overseas and making it illegal to deny complicity in the holocaust as well as the event itself opposition leader appeared his great grandmother was killed in poland is one of the law's sponsors if you see the kind of for the senate is that it was her as you know couple of weeks important to do this deal. you understand why is it so important for us to be able to maintain the memory of the holocaust is the world really happened during the years of thirty nine to forty four. whom are the poles with help in israel's holocaust
memorial yad vashem pays tribute to nearly seven thousand poles who didn't save their jewish neighbors at the height of the holocaust but one of israel's leading scholars on the period says many more poles were complicit in current research shows us that many of those jews were killed not because of the german something they were handed to the germans but by the poorest citizens by paul who found them to polish government this bill is an effort to stop a defeated occupied nation from being defamed as a partner in the nazi genocide to israelis it seems like an attempt to shield thousands of polish citizens from blame or a force of al-jazeera west jerusalem and israeli legal rights group is suing to new zealand us for allegedly convincing the singer lordi to cancel her concert in israel it's thought to be the first case filed under two thousand and eleven law which allows civil lawsuits against anyone calling for a boycott against israel the new zealand as well so let's it's our last month
urging her to join the artistic boycott days later she canceled her june concert on television well the israeli law sure it is suing on behalf of three would be concept go as they want about thirteen thousand dollars for emotional injury caused by the cancellation. we're not doing that to get any money and a lawsuit is a moral i don't be a logical author. we just want to send a message that if you call to boycott against israel you're going to have to deal with the ramifications afterward and everything that comes with that still to come this half hour shield by a. man who drove his van into a crowd of outside a london mosque is found guilty of murder. and today zero in cape town where tensions are running high as new water restrictions i mean.

committed concerned this does not mean that these twenty that leads are declared innocent but in their case due to insufficient evidence the held it's a setback for the case built against russia by the international olympic committee and world anti-doping agency. putin has often said the anti doping allegations against russia are politically motivated even though they are designs to interfere in the upcoming presidential elections well that voice is less than two months away now and so for the kremlin cass's decision is a timely gift. it fits neatly into a picture often painted here certainly one regularly offered by the governments and state media of russia as a besieged fortress righteously defending itself against a largely hostile world and russia is now pushing for its previously disgraced
sports men and women to be readmitted to the winter olympics starting next week in south korea does just but it was at the court of arbitration for sport confirmed athletes are clean and earned the right to take part in the olympics so the russian olympic committee will send a letter to the international olympic committee suggesting they allow athletes to compete in the olympic games. despite what russia's sports minister says the international olympic committee notes cass's point i lack of evidence doesn't prove the innocence of those athletes for now the i.o.c. seems reluctant to readmit them to compete in pyongyang the result of the ca's decision does not mean that least from the group of twenty eight will be invited to the games not being sanctioned does not automatically confer the privilege of an invitation still provided it's not overturned on appeal the cast decision means
