1:15 am
a demonstration of openness is extremely important but i think this is the wrong people are going to think. that they don't want to come out even if that's not the case i don't believe personally that we've seen a massive cover up of information coming from japan what we have seen though i think is a very slow response to questions and attitude which is we've from our true backward looking about this is what we think might have been happening two or four weeks ago instead of this is what we think. true or four weeks tried a matter is the attitude. of playing orators are sitting on the information of a don't want to release. but let's check out some other international headlines for you now former attorneys in presence in the l d n ben ali and his wife each been sentenced to thirty five years in prison for state funds they were tried in absentia after fleeing to saudi arabia in january following
