7:20 am
is about having the temple built for their day to rum for the muslims it's about much more for the muslims it's about whether their rights are going to be protected in this country anymore and the places of worship only sort of symbolizing that but there are lots of other people as well who say that this is a question of law you know can we leave india be a country where you can actually it is a mosque and then validate that act of vandalism by giving the word that it is more towards one side than the other so there are many important questions and that is why this case is one of the landmark he says in this country. thanks so much 17 rockets have landed close to an iraqi army base south of the city of morsel of how you are a base also houses american troops which are part of the u.s. led coalition helping iraqi forces battle remnants of ice all have been no reports of casualties. and the iraqi capital baghdad there have been more protests the

a gene that from place to stop using excessive force against protesters in the last fall from our time our city mayor to look to judge out the peaceful ness of the protests in the various forums should be paid great attention the biggest responsibility is on the security forces they must avoid using excessive force on peaceful protesters. key white house officials told impeachment investigators the trumpet ministration did pressure ukraine to investigate the president's political rivals the inquiry released more transcripts from closed door hearings but documents relate to testimony from a former white house advisor and an army officer assigned to the national security council they detail a series of meetings before and after dog house phone call with ukraine's president and the gallic has more from washington d.c. well some of what lieutenant colonel alexander has said is already known but what we've got in this latest transcript is a lot more fleshing out of the details than in essence what the lieutenant colonel
7:25 am
is saying is there was no ambiguity in the july phone call between president trump and president selenski in this army offices opinion is also ukraine expert and a recipient of the purple heart he said it was clear that president trump was asking the ukrainians to dig up dirt on our political foe in return for military aid in his opinion that was a threat to national security so these are pretty explosive charges in a pretty explosive testimony from someone who served his entire life for the u.s. in the u.s. military also went on to say that john bolton had reportedly reacted exasperated to what was going on had called rudy giuliani president trump's personal lawyer 108 and is someone who is going to take everybody down so this is just yet one more testimony from a senior official who has firsthand knowledge of what was going on in these various meetings and in that july phone call but i think what the democrats are doing now
7:26 am
