even though what. they're in seeing here is likely to show no doubt that according to the no name only one who really knows a man she does not represent her and the one selection of this country right now taking off jodi arias has taken several controversial election said of politics or election she started to worry that's what many other critics so say she wrote is that it's a great relations with many sweaters that sign a contract that on the rise in this is to use excessive gold and many many other things when we will you are seeing. protests like this one are happening all around the country and this is generally done shortages here in the back earlier today we were able to see several young lines of people trying to get chicken. and galileo other things because oh brother do i really i'm not meaningly right not only orders

n one of the most stable things vegetable in bangladesh cooking it is also the hottest topic right now in bangladesh media it has also taken over the social media by way of subtle and parody what used to sell for $0.36 per kilogram is now selling for 3 dollars part kilogram government started providing subsidized rate for the marginalised poor by way of special delivery vehicles but the people here can say that the onions here are rotten. these are not of good quality some of them are rotten but what can we do the prince is a too high and we have no choice as poor people. some of the reason why price skyrocketed in recent months is because of buying of the government's failure to import onion in timely fashion india's ban on export of onion to bangladesh and some unscrupulous trader holding onions to manipulate market price. you can't get
onions because there's a lack of an india banning exposure which is also why an in prices have gone up and in prices too hot for cooking most poor people and even the middle class stop using onion as a cooking ingredient fans can have on the christian money and we have stopped buying because the prime minister has forced us to cook or dishes without it is not possible for us ordinary people to buy onions such a high price. as a symbolic gesture the prime minister herself has a larger quote not to use onion as an ingredient in our dishes although the prices have slightly going down because the government started airlifting on importing onions from middle east europe and even central asia but prices remain still high in the market for most people. italian police say they've broken off across border criminal gang trafficking millions of dollars worth of artifacts from the 4th and 5th century b.c. police training video shows excavations in the southern region of calabria artifacts were illegally exported and sold around the world italy's paramilitary

2019. the right amount of uranium enrichment for the world's largest state sponsor of terror is iraq. iran originally constructed for it as a fortified underground bunker to conduct secret uranium enrichment work and there is no legitimate reason for iran to resume in richmond at this previously clandestine site iran should reverse its activity there immediately iran's supreme leader is reverting to his tried and true method of using nuclear brinksmanship to extort the international community into accepting the regimes destabilizing activity the united states rejects this approach completely and calls on all nations to do the same the only viable way forward is through comprehensive negotiations addressed the full range of iran's threats. in their entirety gran's most recent action is yet another clear attempt at nuclear extortion the only deepen its political and economic isolation from the world. they also want to spend
just a minute talking about iraq the last few weeks united states has watched the protests very closely we support the iraqi people as they strive for a prosperous iraq that is free of corruption and reigning in malign influence we stated clearly that iraq's leaders must protect human rights as iraqis lift their voices to secure a flourishing democracy calls are consistent with a troubled initiations track record as being a force for good throughout iraq if we work with the iraqi security forces to take down the isis caliphate and will continue to make sure it cannot reemerge the united states remains the largest humanitarian donor to iraq providing more than 2000000000 dollars in food water medicine and shelter since 2014 alone and we're the largest donor as well to stabilization. rebuilding more than 500 schools 100 health centers 50 water treatment plants with many more projects coming
online soon. now our commitment continues we will not stand idle while the corrupt officials make the iraqi people suffer today i am affirming that states will use our legal authorities to sanction corrupt individuals. that are stealing iraqi's wealth and those killing and wounding peaceful protesters like the iraqi people taking to the streets that our sanctions will not discriminate between religious sect or ethnicity they will simply target those who do wrong to the iraqi people no matter who they are turning now to israel. the trump administration is reversing the obama administration's approach towards israeli settlements u.s. public statements unsettling that timothy's in the west bank have been inconsistent over decades in 1998 the carter administration categorically concluded that israel's establishment of civilian settlements.
