4:44 pm
di, did control and the minerals not being controlled, that they are people within these booths or want to take power c b. when we say a coalition, jaqueline, the standard missy bc's made of so many different groups and they're actually quite a lot of different groups in, in, in, in the central african republic. so there ambitions are very different depending on who you talk to. but we know, for example, that bos, easy ones, power, and also wants to control areas, would mimic mineral to reaches start up out of the world. we talk about that often . so i'm glad we got the chance to to do that with you monitor can say from the university of aberdeen. thank you. thank you very much. driving in hong kong, 7 activists have been sentenced to prison for their roles in pro democracy protests last year. their sentences are between 6 and 12 months, they've been accused of and fighting others to take part in unauthorized assemblies
