2:40 pm
detailing. why not moments really interesting will be if she doesn't name people and it's the same as the 5 people apparently on trial at risk of their lives in saudi arabia or whether she names others and so i think the alternative just named people that it will in some way implicate the state as a body and that's much more difficult to tie down to a criminal charge it becomes it is much more diffuse and less for the activist or for turkey to grab hold of maybe maybe he did they did not make that assessment the trump administration made a few statements denouncing the murder of hostility but states short of taking action but $22.00 bipartisan members of the senate called for an investigation into how. the cia believe calm principal. ordered the assassination

2:43 pm
state department have reached a similar conclusion reuters reports the researchers found evidence of saudi arabia trafficking child soldiers from sudan but secretary of state mike bump aoe has refused to add saudi arabia to a list of countries that recruit child soldiers the list is part of a global human trafficking report that the u.s. government compiles annually donald trump has decided to marry the united states to saudi arabia so saudi arabia can do no wrong which includes assassinating and then melting or chopping into pieces a journalist inside a saudi consulate and employing large numbers of child soldiers president trump has leaned heavily on saudi arabia as an economic and military ally refusing to condemn the kingdom for the murder of u.s. based journalist jamal khashoggi the state department did not respond to questions
2:44 pm
about saudi arabia recruiting child soldiers but said in a statement the united states condemns the unlawful recruitment and use of child soldiers we place great importance on ending the practice wherever it occurs some members of congress from both parties have moved to block $8000000.00 in u.s. arms sales to saudi arabia but what's happening in yemen is a humanitarian disaster that has been exacerbated by the very weapons we. giving the saudis in order to fight this conflict in yemen and create untold humanitarian disaster human rights watch says thousands of civilians have been killed in yemen and 14000000 people are at risk of starvation and death there's no accounting of how many deaths are that of child soldiers with the u.s. state department now refusing to acknowledge saudi arabia's role in their fate hi

2:46 pm
is that this is a report about accountability where no one is held accountable alternately you know everybody blames the system everybody said that there needs to be better coordination there need to be better communication this is almost a parody of discussions about u.n. reform where you know the system is always to blame but no one is in charge of the system well i think that actually it should have been the un resident coordinator the person who is in charge of the u.n. country team in myanmar who presided over this mass and continually downplayed the severity of the crisis i mean she was basically silencing colleagues who wanted to talk up the issues of human rights and an increased warnings about the situation rakhine state instead she's been promoted she's now the u.n. and the court in india so i mean i think once again we see that talk about accountability in the u.n. but really this is a check the box exercise trying to. basically protected myanmar from the kind of
2:47 pm
sanctions it should have faced from the u.n. security council you know there's going to refer all of what happened in rakhine state to the international criminal court but you know trying as blocking that to so i mean trying to is defending crimes against humanity and genocide by the burmese military and unfortunate because they're a permanent member of the u.n. security council they get away with it move or there's tanks and maleo plunging the country deeper into a cycle of ethnic silence nearly 100 people were killed that we go cheering on going cold and welcome when went to mali to reach in to speak to some who fled the violence. on society as has she liked life in have pillaged who armed men set it on fire. she's just 7 years old he shot her neighbors and stole cowles she fled with her family a lot of. the walk was very difficult it lasted 5 days we had nothing to eat or
