a gang shootout in the northeastern city of salvador. days after the u.s. state of alabama approved a near total on abortion donald trump has weighed in he indicated on twitter that alabama has gone too far as its new law makes no exceptions for pregnancies that occur from rape or incest pro-abortion rights activists have been protesting in cities across alabama stacey fox the president of planned parenthood so. it was one of the. i think this is nothing more a than a political game that our president is leading the way on we know that 70 percent of americans do not support overturning roe v wade and that holds true right here in alabama no matter if you cut it on party lines republicans democrats evangelicals people do not support these bands and the politicians here just aren't listening which means they will get a pink slip next fall when we all had to the voting well let's me clarify are planned parenthood and the a.c.l.u. will be taking the state of alabama to court and hope that like every other fight
2:09 pm
we've had that we will prevail in this law will never take effect but banning abortion doesn't stop abortion it stops safe abortion and who this impacts is poor women and women of color across this country and what these politicians should be focused on are the real health crisis like the one here in alabama where black women are dying of cervical cancer at 6 times the rate of any other state in this country south africa's former president jacob zuma is due back in court later hoping the judges will throw out hundreds of corruption charges against him zuma is accused of fraud money laundering and russia tearing but he says it's all part of a conspiracy for media mill reports from pietermaritzburg where the case is being heard. jacob zuma is most challenging days as president involved protests like these demanding his resignation it's 15 months and zuma succumbed following months of public dissatisfaction and pressure from within his own party the african national congress at the heart of his fall from grace one hundred's of corruption

he was elected president of the party ahead of the 2009 elections which the a.n.c. won zuma then became south africa's president in 2007 zuma was charged with corruption racketeering money laundering and fraud the charges were dropped 2 years later because judges said they'd been political interference but last year prosecutors had another change of mind and the charges were reinstated zuma wants the charges dropped because of what he describes as a political conspiracy jacob zuma is due to appear at this court way it's expected his lawyers will argue that it's been more than a decade since the case against him began and it should be thrown out the former president also says there have been irregularities ahead of the trial including that he has been spied on by the government if he must put on trial it could have massive implications for the divided in seen resume retain significant support going to be train time for the a.n.c.
