a target there are two tribes these are sunni arab tribes one told him to do it the other jase these are famous tribes from the area of singe are the historical homeland of the c.d.'s according to the izzy these two specific tribes were complicit with isis and the day that isis arrived in the area these tribes helped isis to round up his east turn women into sex slaves and to massacre other members of the z.t. community since then i've spent much time with u.c.d. elders who told me they had drawn up a list of individuals and of tribes and would target them and kill them if they had the chance heard incidents where what is now a group of u.c.b. fighters you see the militia empowered on the payroll of the baghdad government that has targeted members of these two tribes but what we understand is that they're targeting anyone from these tribes women children men not because they were
9:03 pm
specifically involved in isis abuses and abuses against the c.d.'s but just be careful because they carry the name of this tribe in two thousand and fourteen the year i sold the quote it's caliph it almost seven thousand young people were captured by the terrorist group and three thousand are still missing. the men would offer us and skits in the evenings they would get together and treat the women and have their fun with us. it was indescribable funny laugh turned into endless suffering tears and hunger i couldn't do anything not quite. but. who you heard from earlier told us the cycle

9:05 pm
was was. started as a protest against the soaring prices and unemployment and snowballed into the biggest anti-government movement since two thousand and nine but later on large crowds also turned out in support of the country's supreme leader spite of that the u.s. is only focusing on the anti-government protests. many reports of peaceful protests by iranian citizens fed up with the regime's corruption and squandering of the nation's wealth to fund terrorism a brooch. iranian government should respect their people's rights including the right to express themselves the world is watching but already we do see that foreign players are involving themselves in iranian affairs and this is ironic
9:06 pm
because the united states right now is complaining about legit russian involvement in the us elections even though they've never provided any evidence for this but i personally don't think that this is anything of major significance i think the west and western media they want to exaggerate the importance these are protests. that are that were small most of them were expressing their economic grievances and very few were expressing how thirty toward the government or the state and today there are actually counter protests against those groups that were protesting against the political order and they were much larger and numbers across the country but again those were not reflected in the west and. with the world gearing up for new year's celebrations of berlin has come up with a new way to ensure security safe zones for women are being set up at the brandenburg gate party now this comes in response to mass sexual assaults and celebrations in the german city of cologne two years ago his murder for national

9:08 pm
thousand cases reported in cologne in hamburg alone more than two thousand men were reportedly involved most of them asylum seekers the new idea of the women's safety area has received a mixed reaction that's a good idea many people feel like need help but they don't know who to ask to do and having these services kind of nice i think sexual harassment was people who were in groups and you were so how do you get from here to the safe place i mean. it seems a bit far fetched i don't think it's such a good idea it's to me it sounds it's a bit like an early be set up like oh man i feel freight but this is this is too it's good to feel because it's needed. in front of nearly it's kind of interesting that they do it in a new year's as an event it's because i'd be better if it's like
