5:14 am
ah, ah, kind of a watching al jazeera, let's remind you about top story of the sound. the biden administration has defended the u. s. military withdrawal from afghanistan as taliban fighters continue to claim more territory. washington says it's a draw down also retreat and is pledging to support the african government from saudi arabia is backing egypt and don over their concerns with peers, controversial giant hydropower, down the kingdom says support. so countries and preserving the water right. if you up here. meanwhile, says it started the 2nd phase of filling that on the blue nile. tropical storm elsa has been upgraded to
5:15 am
a hurricane as it barrels towards the u. s. station. florida. the national hurricane centers warning of damaging winds and heavy rain expected to make land fall on wednesday. now columbia special peace court has accused general 9 military personnel and the civilian of murdering 120 civilians between 20072008. and says they were falsely presented as a rebel fighters who died in combat. now this is the 1st time the tribunal has accused members of the army in connection with this so called a false positive scandal. or the law here lie you in. the evidence indicates that the 11 accused a criminally responsible for the war crime, homicide, and a protected person and crimes against humanity, murder and false disappearance. according to both the colombian penal code and the rome statute of the international criminal court, the 120 victims, identified by the tribunal for peace were assassinated in a defenceless state by members of the security forces,
5:16 am
with no actual combat involved. well, let's be adolfo franco. he joins us from alexandria in virginia. he's a lawyer and also a former assistant administrator of latin america and the caribbean for usa id. mr . frankly, thank you for your time with us today. i believe you weren't in columbia during this period and i gather you are not surprised by these charges. i'm not surprised . quite frankly, i was in columbia was such an administrator for 6 years from the take take over the re big government to its 1st term. so i visited the area and visited north descent and there and good to my own. and i'm not surprised for this reason. this is a very brutal, ambitious civil war. both sides commit atrocities. we tried to investigate these matters. it was very difficult, but i can tell you just as an aside, for example, as i visited these, these war zones, we would have to fly in the morning and fly out in the late afternoon because they're surrounded by guerrillas. so it was
5:17 am
a very tense situation where unfortunately, the rule laws were thinking for both sides. talking about the government very difficult to enforce. well, we're talking 11 people being charged here, but i know that some human rights groups estimate something like 5000 or more were killed as part of the so called false positives. do you have a sense of how wide spread this was? and are you confident that this process will actually result in accountability? well, i personally raise the issue, and presently we read at the time at the request of senator leahy and others in our congress and with the columbia basket. the u. s. at the time, luis moreno, they rigorously denied these things. i don't think these were killings that were order from the top, but significant individuals and higher ranking offices, including a general apparently were involved in us. again, one of the difficulties in this conflict is that many of these zones were far removed from this government. and many of these individuals who probably died were
5:18 am
suspected act of us left just not combatants. so they were really we are, they are or crimes. but i believe that probably the number is far in excess. so with the charges we see today there's just no question. it was such a long prolong conflict involving really half the country in a very, very vicious war. you say the conflict was prolonged. i mean, the reconciliation process itself has been incredibly difficult and complex. what does this now mean for columbia as all me and how they're regarded? i know there are some very high profile heroes you've been involved implicated here . i think it's quite mixed. so of course, the conflict to columbia as it was decades in the making from the 1915, but to far cuz at least 20 years old and the land in terms of the, the colombian army and, and it's, it's role in the government. i think it's quite mixed. a lot of people do believe in columbia that there had to be a very strong government response,
5:19 am
particularly in 2002 when really took over to stem the tide at one point in the park with when large parts of the country, it's in the south much its own state. so there are still ways we're respect with the military's role in columbia by the vast majority. but this will questionably a road that confidence. there is no question about it, especially when you're talking about high ranking military officers and others that might be implicated including members of the government that was empower at the time. then i think it would be a very devastating blow to democracy in columbia. adolfo franco. they're speaking to us from alexandria in virginia, a former assistant administrative for latin america and the caribbean, who worked in columbia during that time. thanks so much for joining us, mr. franklin. thank you. now, canada is getting it 1st. indigenous governor general. so if you're not marry, simon, isn't anyone from the province of quebec? she says her appointment is a sign of progress towards
5:20 am
a more inclusive society. there's currently a fresh spotlight on historical abuses against indigenous people in canada. after the discovery of more than a 1000 unmarked graves of children who were forced into residential schools, the governor general's position represents britain's reigning monarch in canada. i can confidently say that my appointment is a historic and if in inspiration, a moment for canada and an important step forward on the long path towards reconciliation. well, i spoke to brain we. yes, he is a lawyer and a former counsel for the national inquiry into missing and murdered indigenous women and girls. he told me this appointment doesn't necessarily actually signal any meaningful change when i listen to her, say, an important step forward on the long path towards reconciliation to me and to many ambitious people. this signal that we should expect from her the same slow pace
5:21 am
of successive canadian governments over many decades, including the current government. and the to me is very troubling. in this context . you know, a country that's being accused of genocide by its own federal commission. the national inquiry and timothy and murdered business women and girls confidently is still signaling to us that it's going to take a slow measured approach. i do not believe that genocide is a crime, but should be tolerated for any amount of time, let alone the long path towards reconciliation alluded to by the new governor general. i think that it deserves immediate attention because well, as someone who's also formerly worked in indigenous governance, i know that indigenous government like the i t k of which she was president and the m n. c, a f and are heavily dependent on the canadian government for their funding. and
5:22 am
candidate uses that dependency to coerce indigenous governments to do work as canada sees fit. so it's my belief that the selection of simon by prime minister trudeau is likely because he's comfortable with her past track record that that she won't rock the boat very much and that she will tow the line and protect the government of canada. we need something more courageous than that right now. former us police, captain eric adams, has won the democratic primary vote for the mayor of new york city. he defeated his rival, catherine garcia, and a head to head poll. adams is now favored to win november's election against republican nominee to please, if elected, he'll become the 2nd black man to lead america's largest se lebanon is pleading for international help with the can't take a prime minister warning. it's just days away from the social explosion. husband,

5:24 am
the government was attempting these massive accusations once a situation like that. now while this, the situation unfortunately is still the same, 1000 are still in temporary shelter, is coming from 2 towns, the area of a good seeing you and that, and the row, which is well within the 7 kilometer danger zone of now, you know, but the situation is particularly more difficult this time, of course, behind me is the greater it does a very unique set up. it is a boy came within the lake and it may look very peaceful, but actually the government that's recorded very high levels of sulfur dioxide. and it's warned that basically the russian is eminent anytime within the next few weeks . now, the concerned here really is the safety and security of those living within these danger zones. unicef issued a statement, you know, basically voicing out concerns about children living in the back. elation centers
5:25 am
with respiratory problems that over the past few days, the government has been vaccinated. people in evacuation centers trying to make sure that the small, the minimum house protocols are so very much in place. of course that is a concern. the long term concern is not just the safety, but also the economic situation of many people here who are dependent on agriculture and tourism for their livelihood. an area up robin teach us to read the bit. dealt with so many problems since last here it's 1st eruption in january, january 12, 2020, a couple of by epidemic. and, you know, lastly they said they're just slowly recovering and then this erupt shouldn't happen again. and they're hoping that basically the recovery won't take. so long and they'll be able to get back on their feet again because they can't afford another closure. of course to melinda. again, they're on the ground for us and tall in the philippines. thank you so much. 7. now moving on and attacks on dr. bye man was military or threatening the country is
5:26 am
fight against. could the 19 a group say health care work as a face to violence? arrests, even killings by security forces. since those protests against february's crib again, the jonah is use of targeting them to undermine the support for anti cree protested, forcing new clinics to then operate on the ground. speaking anonymously one, dr. described his ordeal with the security force and all the medical equipment and michael leach and on for doctors and enough to warranty a theme. depletion of public call on adulthood. a huge, huge due to all actions in the damage. but we have become criminals overnight. find a military home in law, indonesia, government says it's pressing for another surge in current of virus cases. well, hospital said buckle under the waste of infections. emergency oxygen supplies are

5:28 am
still gathered up the towns square, where thousands would usually watch a rocket being 5 to mark the beginning of that festival. while all of that cancellations the cannes film festival though is back after taking an enforced break last year for the pandemic, international stars and film lovers have returned to the south of france for one of the world's most glamorous events. natasha butler was there for the grand re opening the sweeping bay, shimmering mediterranean sea, red carpet and of course movies dolls. the cannes film festival is back after one year break because of the covey pandemic american director. spike lee is the head of the jury. this year at the arrived just before the cost of the opening film and met the excitement was palpable. the innate is one of $24.00 films in competition for the prestigious palm dual prize, the musical comedy by french american director, los correct mario quote. yeah. and adam driver is my favorite festival can. i've
