a new get free you know group but we don't know how many people are actually part of this get the group mike is doing is the announcement was surrounded by just 20 people armed people that the government believes there might be roughly somewhere between 1500 to 2000 members of the dissident group so way smaller than the fight which had more than that 20000 soldiers at the height of its operations and that that had roughly 13000 members when they signed the peace deal in 2016. hurrican dorian has strengthened to a category 4 storm which forecasters describe as extremely dangerous it's gaining momentum as it tracks towards the u.s. east coast with wind speeds of more than 180 kilometers an hour and d.c.
12:11 pm
correspondent jake gray reports for us now from cocoa beach florida. it looks like landfall at this point will be sometime late in the morning or early afternoon tuesday the storm has slowed down significantly and that bad news that we did gathering strength it's forming and getting more solid i really could intensify significantly before it does make that turn and head toward the florida coast here we have seen lines around grocery stores lines at gas stations home improvement stores packed with people buying supplies generators were sold out for a short time here more have been moved in fuel is going to be an issue across the state according to the governor and right now there is a high tension for millions up and down the coast because we just don't know at this point where this storm is going to strike it has been a storm that's been very difficult to bring dick gets wrapped up very quickly in the warm waters of the atlantic and a lot of people now worried about where dorian could go next no evacuation orders
12:12 pm
and the main reason according to 1st responders and officials is they don't know where to evacuate they don't know where this storm is going to make landfall what we do know is they'll likely open some shelters to mars to people who don't feel safe at home but at least start to move in there what they've told everyone else is pack what you will need if you're going to have to leave if you feel like you're going to leave regardless of an evacuation order do it now go all the roads aren't packed if you're going to wait for us to tell you to leave don't wait to pack once you get that word be ready to go and get out quickly a trial date has been set 2021 so 5 men accused of planning the september 11th attacks among them a suspected mastermind khalid shaikh mohammad a senior al qaeda figure the u.s. has charged them with war crimes that include terrorism hijacking and nearly $3000.00 counts of the men have been held at the u.s. prison camp in guantanamo bay in cuba since 2006 karen greenberg is the director of the center on national security at the fordham university school of law she says
12:13 pm
the defendant's lawyers will present evidence that they were told shooting custody . what lies at the heart of this case is is it possible to bring this case with clean evidence evidence that was not derived from torture we all know from reading the $911.00 commission report and many histories now of $911.00 that there are many facts that are out there in public but what how the case can be. delayed as we've seen or impeded or or justice brought to these men by bringing the fact of their torture up is very important one of the issue is the death penalty this is death penalty case and so there may be some further negotiation there's been a lot already about the death penalty to have these men are very ill one of at least one of them 2 of them are alleged at different times to be suffering from some kind of brain damage or psychological illness so that is also going to impede the trial

the death of a man who was deported to iraq even though he never lived in the senate to the fee is among iraqis in the u.s. jimmy although it was sent to baghdad in june and later died from medical complications habra times reports now from detroit. it was clear that jimmy out there would was in distress once he got to iraq i begged him not to leave and then he's going to come over to work here. and i think will. become diabetic i think. a lot of people but. ever since the trumpet ministrations immigration crackdown began many distressing videos have been circulated but this was the 1st to foretell the death of a man whose lawyers had warms the deportation to iraq could be fatal he was deported in june 63 days later he was dead he was on a bench in this airport and not with basically just the clothes on his back with
12:15 pm
nothing he had no food he had no water he had nothing an airport official took pity on him gave him some food called his family and that's how they found out that he had been deported it was incredibly incredibly cool in a statement immigration and customs enforcement said elder would had a criminal record and so had no legal basis to remain in the u.s. and that he was given a full complement of medicine to ensure continuity of care the detroit area has one of the largest populations of those with iraqi heritage outside of iraq many like jimmy all kow the catholics who came to the u.s. as refugee children around a 1000 green card holders currently face deportation to iraq because they have a criminal record no matter how minor even though they served their time in jail and many like jimmy have no connection to iraq ice is determined to send them to a country that the state department says no american should travel to because it's too dangerous as a result of the u.s. invasion and jimmy wasn't the 1st to be sent back all the individuals that were in
12:16 pm
contact with there are some individuals we don't know what happened to them we don't know if they're alive or they're dead the individuals that we've spoken to many of them are in terrible situations they are in hiding some have been assaulted some have been shot shot at we know that jimmy obviously die. many of the county and community supported donald trump of the 2016 election encouraged by pledges of social conservatism and the protection of religious minorities abroad a nearly 90000 cal the in registered voters he won the state by 10000 or so so absolutely can it could impact the election and it's not just iraqis like jimmy who face deportation to countries with which they have no connection several asian and african countries are being pressured to accept deportees even though they too would face an uncertain future in countries they don't know and one other thing i wanted to say about about jimi is that you know we were speaking to him shortly before his death he really wanted to share his story as

a way to make sure that other people wouldn't experience what he experienced she ever hence the al-jazeera detroit michigan google security experts of uncovered a hacking operation that targeted apple i phones for at least 2 years they say the hackers used web sites to infect phones with malicious software that gave them access to photos messages user locations and other data apple was made aware of the problem in february and released the security updates to fix it or imagine a sea of connect safely dot org an internet security firm he says it's worrying that the breach took so long to become public. why didn't apple disclose the details at the time they did disclose that there was a security patch but we didn't know how bad it was in terms of how bad it was we don't know exactly how many people were affected but we do know that this particular malware with capable of taking over the phone which means it could read
12:18 pm
your e-mail you can read your text message of your instagram private messages it could know your location it could do practically anything that you could do by having the phone in your hand in an unlocked way and it was able to transmit this data unencrypted so it was a very serious flaw apple gets credit for having fixed it very quickly but criticism for dot having disclose details until we're finding out now not from apple but from google and the i phone is by no means invulnerable and we see that from this hack there isn't a lot you could do to guarantee that you're protected but the best thing you can do is to keep your operating system in your browser and other software and apps up to date the get go there vector if your security flaws and apple in this case did fix it in february the other thing you can do is to try to avoid going to unknown web sites but frankly that's very difficult because a lot of us are always looking around the web and don't always know where we're going.

a good host and no man should hear my voice. i have just one life and i don't want to live the way society wants. it's a choice she wouldn't have had 18 years ago when the taliban ruled afghanistan. under its regime women were not seen. they were forced to wear as a book go and work banned from streets and jobs and if they broke these rules they were filled and sometimes executed was in the gift was it that we've gambled with our lives minute by minute. because we want women to have a place in society. to show them how much things have changed. and they look at your friends take me to a place so to prove it was completely banned by the taliban.
12:29 pm
it's a bowling alley. not exactly the hotbed of vice i was expecting. but not that long ago all of us would have been publicly flogged just being feet. who didn't do something like this 18 years ago and probably still at this not with one eye witness and that ali khamenei didn't get. one shot or not will not enough information what happened at the end look what happened i'm sure it doesn't get. and they tell me that's not the only change was the design and that john. pointed out that. it is still a show that was it's not that donnish will. run with it because it is make money on it. but now women fear that these freedoms may not last for much longer. room is
