a dormitory where students were sleeping. in ireland survivors of an a tourist children's home or accusing the government of covering up a long running scandal involving the catholic church they're threatening legal action over the government's failure to examine the bodies of as many as 796 children who died in the care of nuns some of the remains found in a burial put in june 5 years ago were newborn babies as largely reports it is impossible to overstate the mental scarring of the survivors of the bodies of the riders are very concerned because they're there and they are peter lived in the home until the age of 4 when the nuns sold him on to a violent family by that time he lost his sister she like nearly 800 others had her name recorded in the death register to walk on this plot is to walk over the bones of infant children for
a catholic organization to put bodies in here there were baptized ties yet the brother and her own consecrated ground left them here like animals nor spirits no records no nothing seva just for them like all the others patro of his grandmother had to give her sons up to the nuns as punishment for becoming pregnant outside marriage both of them but travers' 2 uncles died john francis only made a week apparently they didn't feed him and your uncles names on this list yeah he's right here john francis malone 7 days. and the death certificate says that he died of malnutrition more well it says more as must but starvation eventually so so so starved to death he hid it in the care of the nuns. like many others patro believes the whole place is a crime scene there's still an awful lot of unanswered questions and without those questions being answered then how do we know it's not it's 5 years since
a local historian uncovered the scale of what happened here and the government has promised to excavate the size a preliminary investigation discovered skeletons lined up in rows since the entrance is very narrow it's led to the suspicion that the nuns got the children to carry the bodies of dead babies down the pit after these photos were taken the whole site was covered over again the government minister responsible for all this declined an interview but the government's own interim reports suggest that they don't trust the testimonies of surviving nuns and they think that local people might know more than they've been prepared to admit in the meantime though the detective work is being done not by the police but by the survivors of choom and their families. the campaigners think the government is so frightened of the damage to the church that a full excavation would do that it is resisting it so they're threatening court
action i think the only way in which this will be resolved is through an order of the supreme courts of this country i can't see any other way because there is no will there's no wish there is no appetite church and state in this country as to where did in a poisonous pact. through thought to be dozens and dozens of other places like this around ireland a full investigation into the scale of what happened across all the countries mother and baby homes would be explosive and could destroy the reputation of the church hardly a surprise then the survivors think the government would rather bury the truth than dig up the past lawrence lee al-jazeera chim in ireland a suicide bomber and gunman have attacked a government building in afghanistan only a day after nearly 50 people were killed in 2 bombings there at least 9 people were wounded in the attack in jalalabad a top it was
a distribution center for national identity cards which people need to vote in afghanistan's presidential election in 10 days time. a key border crossing between pakistan and afghanistan is now open 24 hours a day it was previously open for only 12 hours a day but pakistan's prime minister hopes to boost trade come out harden as more now on how the change is affecting people on both sides of the border. the bugger tiny prime minister imran khan said this is a historic day earlier the president of lani dr pakistani prime minister there he shared. destruction the along the border progress on had delivered on your straw man and opened the door from the border which really now be operating 247 and around the clock i think opening the door to come border is an incredible achievement it's likely to increase trade significantly in fact it's already increased it by more than 50 percent ever since it's opened at the same time i
think it will open up people to people relations again. i believe that it will actually ease security issues and i think that it is only the 1st step through which we can also think about opening other crossing points with afghanistan both in the province of capitals and in baluchistan. but also we have been tortured by the local head that this is a major step which would like need to improve trade between the 2 countries because truck good on both sides do not have to wait overnight in order to get clearance to be able to move it released condition and it really shows how didn't go valvano who come to plug it on a daily basis to seek medical attention in hospital and then buggiest on. a hockey will to dismiss save us a lot of time early it would take us 15 days on the afghan side of a quarter but with this decision it will take 2 days before they can also help on
the pakistani side and we won't be staying overnight you know more for the customs clearance. before if we had to carry a patient from afghanistan to pakistan the patient had to suffer and sometimes died due to long waits until the border reopened in the morning this is indeed an important step the pakistani prime minister has said that if discarded or. and if there is peace in of londonistan discord open a whole new avenue to link up. and to make sure our in the hope for the international business gets done and the only why a bit rude put up leider nato forces and the u.s. led coalition forces operating out of run if done by did really also be a crucial link india the united states wants to draw down its presence in afghanistan they will have to move their military hardware group august on because russia and iran will not give them
a package the pakistani prime minister of course is now optimistic that if that is peace in afghanistan that this particular highway and the door come border could become a major hub of activity for business not just didn't bug it's not enough when it's done but beyond infantry natio. u.s. president donald trump's plan to build a wall on the mexican border has long me criticized for its expensive price tag but the cost to the environment is also being questioned with the route of the wall taking it straight through a wildlife refuge and butterfly sanctuary from macallan texas how does your castro report. in this crook of the rio grande river where mexico lies on one bank the united states on the other flora shiz biodiversity we have over 240 species of butterflies documented on the property with the possibility of about $350.00 species that can be seen in north america and mexico

says he's doing so in the name of national security trump says the wall will keep out drugs and criminals but the vast majority of migrants arriving at the border have been families and children nevertheless building the wall could help trump's chances of winning reelection we think by the end of next year which will be sometime right after the election actually but we think we're going to have close to 500 miles of wall which will be complete construction materials have already arrived rows of steel fencing are destined to be erected on a national wildlife refuge the butterfly center is nearby and after a judge dismissed its lawsuit against the wall it. expects to be next as everyone else begins to feel the pain and the loss related to this bogus project maybe they will turn around maybe they'll be a way to stop it for now the u.s. supreme court is allowing trump to build the wall using military money made
