Neil Diamond says he has Parkinson's, retires from touring
 
02:16
(23 Jan 2018) Neil Diamond is retiring from touring after he says he was diagnosed with Parkinson's disease. Days shy of his 77th birthday, the rock legend is canceling his tour dates in Australia and New Zealand for March. He was on his 50th anniversary tour. The Rock and Roll Hall of Famer offered his "sincerest apologies" to those who planned to go to his shows and says he plans to still write, record and work on other projects "for a long time to come." Diamond's numerous hits include "Sweet Caroline," ''America," ''Love on the Rocks" and "Hello Again." Diamond turns 77 on Wednesday and will get the lifetime achievement award at Sunday's Grammy awards.

No Big Deal: Melania Comforts Student at Event
 
02:11
(9 Apr 2018) Melania Trump says spilled water, even on-camera in a famous house, is no big deal. It happened Monday in the Blue Room of the White House, which had been set up like a classroom. Mrs. Trump and Education Secretary Betsy DeVos asked a group of 13 middle school students to write on a board how they were feeling. Toward the end, one student who had just written that he feels "energized," accidentally knocked a drinking glass off a table. He froze, but the first lady put a comforting hand on his back. "No problem," she said. "Don't worry, it's just a water, OK?" Mrs. Trump said she had gathered the children at the White House to hear about their thoughts and challenges, to "help children everywhere do their best." She began the session by writing on the board her own feelings: "Excited." The children, two of whom had been home schooled according to the White House, wrote that they felt, "respected," ''grateful" and "nervous." The oval-shaped Blue Room can seem formidable, with its view of the South Lawn in one direction, the White House's North-facing front door in the other and the portraits of presidents on the walls. The White House said children were ages 10 to 13. The Trumps' son, Barron, is 12.

Friend Says Cruz He Knew Was 'Nice Person'
 
03:08
(16 Feb 2018) A high school senior from Majory Douglas High School recalls a very different Nikolas Cruz, the accused gunman in the mass shooting in Florida. Ethan Trieu says he became friends with Cruz in sixth grade, but they had grown apart. "The Nick I knew like before all this, he was a nice person to me. That's how I remember him," said Trieu. Cruz is accused of killing 17 people on Wednesday during a shooting rampage at the school. Trieu says Cruz changed after the death of his father and didn't really have anyone to turn to. "We all should have been there for him and he had no one to go to. And I feel sorry for him. But I mostly feel sorry for the victims of what happened." Trieu who stopped by a memorial for the victims called the shooting "completely wrong and disgusting." Robert Snyder also visited the makeshift memorial with his son. He said laws need to change and called on Congress to get its act together.

Syrian govt forces show weapons they say rebels handed over

(22 Apr 2018) RESTRICTION SUMMARY: AP CLIENTS ONLY ++PLEASE NOTE THIS STORY WAS FILMED ON A MEDIA FACILITY SUPERVISED BY THE SYRIAN GOVERNMENT++ ASSOCIATED PRESS - AP CLIENTS ONLY Dumayr, Qalamoun area - 22 April 2018 1.

Close of Islamic State group sign on an ambulance STORYLINE: Syrian government forces on Thursday laid on display hundreds of weapons and military equipment which they say belonged to rebel groups. This video was filmed as part of a media trip to the Qalamoun region supervised by the Syrian-government.   Syria's official government news agency said that the weapons were handed over by the rebels to the Syrian military in return for their safe passage out of the area and into Northern Syria.   Many appeared to have been manufactured in the US or Europe. The Syrian government took control of the town of Dumayr on Thursday after rebels evacuated to north Syria — the latest in a string of handovers by rebels to the government. There have been several handovers by rebels to the government in the capital region following a punishing government offensive against the rebellious eastern Ghouta region earlier this year. Rebels surrendered towns across eastern Ghouta as the offensive drove on, giving up control of an area once home to an estimated 400,000 people in a matter of weeks. The Syrian government has been following a proven strategy of besieging opposition areas until residents and fighters, desperate for food, medical treatment and relief, give up and accept government control. The Syrian government says it is fighting a war against terrorism and has sought to portray its recent gains as liberating territory from terrorist control. =========================================================== Clients are reminded: (i) to check the terms of their licence agreements for use of content outside news programming and that further advice and assistance can be obtained from the AP Archive on: Tel +44 (0) 20 7482 7482 Email: info@aparchive.com (ii) they should check with the applicable collecting society in their Territory regarding the clearance of any sound recording or performance included within the AP Television News service (iii) they have editorial responsibility for the use of all and any content included within the AP Television News service and for libel, privacy, compliance and third party rights applicable to their Territory.

00:53
(26 Jan 2018) 'IT' STAR SKARSKARD SAYS WORK STARTS ON SEQUEL IN SUMMER Bill Skarsgard says he expects to start production on the sequel to the horror hit "It" this summer. Skarsgard spoke at the Sundance Film Festival in Park City, Utah this week, where he was promoting the social media satire "Assassination Nation." "Andy Muschietti, the director, is actually here at Sundance. And we are hanging out. So – we are trying to start production in the summer, I think," Skarsgard said. "Yeah, he's like one of my favorite friends, best collaborator. I love him so much. Yeah, it's fantastic." Skarsgard starred as Pennywise the clown in the adaptation of the Stephen King novel, which had the biggest-ever September opening weekend and has taken in some $700 million worldwide at the box office since its release. The first film followed a group of young friends being haunted by Pennywise in the late 1980s, and the second will continue their story in the present day. A new set of older actors will portray the central "Losers' Club" but Skarsgard will continue in his role.

Police clash with protesters in Armenian capital over arrest of protest leader
 
03:39
(22 Apr 2018) Clashes erupted in the Armenian capital on Sunday following the arrest of anti-government protests leader Nikola Pashinian. Pashinian, the leader of major political protests that have gripped the Armenian capital for more than a week, was arrested after talks with Armenian Prime Minister Serzh Sargsyan collapsed. The protests that began on April 13 center on the appointment of former President Serzh Sargsyan as prime minister, part of Armenia's transition to a governmental system that reduces the powers of the presidency and bolsters the premier's. Critics say the change effectively allows Sargsyan to lead the country for life. As of late Sunday afternoon, 232 demonstrators had been detained, police spokesman Ashot Aragonian said. The health ministry said seven people were hospitalized for problems related to the demonstrations. Demonstrators congregated in the evening at the city's central Republic Square, where previous protests over the past week have attracted as many as 50,000 people.

911 Calls From Parkland Shooting Released
 
04:55
(9 Mar 2018) When emergency calls began pouring in from parents and students during the Florida high school massacre, 911 operators at first tried to grasp the enormity of the emergency and then sought to calm the callers while gathering information to assist arriving law enforcement officers. The Broward County Sheriff's Office on Thursday released audio of 10 of the 81 calls its 911 center received during the Feb. 14 shooting at Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School that left 17 dead and its aftermath. Calls came from students hiding in classrooms and parents who were getting calls and text messages from their children. Other calls arrived from 911 operators in neighboring cities who were relaying information from calls that came into their centers. The school is in the county's jurisdiction. The first calls show the operators' confusion, such as when a male inside the school, possibly a student, whispers, "There's shots at Stoneman Douglas, Someone is shooting up the school at Stoneman Douglas." "I'm sorry. I can't hear you. What's happening?" the dispatcher responds. "Someone is shooting up Marjory Stoneman Douglas" he whispers. She still can't hear him, "Hello... hello...hello." "Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School is being shot up," he again whispers. The call ends seconds later. But then a sense of order begins to emerge, as the Broward dispatchers begin giving instructions on keeping the students safe. Just 13 months earlier, the same 911 center had handled a mass shooting at Fort Lauderdale's airport that had left six dead. A male caller said, "My fiancee's little sister just texted me and said there's someone in here shooting guns, he's upstairs, I'm scared. She's in a classroom. I told her to stay safe and hide." He asks if they are getting other calls. Yes, he is told. In a call relayed from nearby Boca Raton, which lasts more than 16 minutes, a man reports information from a mother standing next to him. She is on another line with her daughter who is in a classroom with just one other girl. They have no closet or enclosed desks that can be used for hiding. The 911 operator fruitlessly pulls information from the mother, attempting to learn what classroom the girls are in. They don't know. She soon instructs the man to tell the girls to remain silent and turn off their cellphone ringers in case the shooter is nearby. "I don't need her to make any noise. Everybody needs to be quiet in that room," the operator said. As the call drags on, the mother can be heard in the background encouraging the girl, who hears noises in the hallway. "I love you, I love you. It's going to be fine if you hide somewhere. Can you play dead? You need to fake dead," the mother tells the girl.

Philippine volcano spews lava fountains, 56,000 people flee
 
01:35
(23 Jan 2018) The Philippines' most active volcano spewed fountains of red-hot lava and massive ash plumes on Wednesday morning in a dazzling but increasingly dangerous eruption that has sent 56,000 villagers fleeing to evacuation centres. Lava fountains gushed up 700 metres (2,300 feet) above Mount Mayon's crater and ash plumes rose up to 3 kilometres (1.9 miles) at least twice Tuesday, according to the Philippine Institute of Volcanology and Seismology. An explosive eruption at noon Monday was the most powerful since the volcano started acting up more than a week ago. Authorities warned a violent eruption may occur in hours or days, characterized by more rumblings and pyroclastic flows - superheated gas and volcanic debris that race down the slopes at high speeds, vaporizing everything in their path. At least 56,217 people were taking shelter in 46 evacuation camps Tuesday and army troops and police were helping move more villagers from their homes, officials said.

Jada Pinkett Smith praises Jessica Chastain for wage fight
 
02:17
(25 Jan 2018) JADA PINKETT SMITH PRAISES JESSICA CHASTAIN FOR WAGE FIGHT Jada Pinkett Smith is praising Jessica Chastain for fighting for pay equity in Hollywood. During a diverse storytelling panel at the Sundance Film Festival, Pinkett Smith on Sunday relayed the story that Chastain negotiated raises for both her and actress Octavia Spencer, who are co-starring in an upcoming comedy. "Jessica stood up for Octavia and I want you to know because they stood together, they got three times what they were asking for as a unit," she said. Pinkett Smith stressed the importance of women in Hollywood working together to stop wage disparity. "It's nice to go out and march, we can do that. It's nice to wear black at the Golden Globes. But what are we doing behind closed doors? And I got to give our sister Jessica Chastain her props."

China warns against military action against Syria over Douma attack
 
01:27
(10 Apr 2018) China asked on Tuesday for all parties concerned to carry out a "fair and objective investigation" into the apparent chemical weapons attack in Syria. The comments came from foreign ministry spokesman Geng Shuang at a regular briefing in Beijing. Geng added that China always believes that any disputes should be "resolved peacefully" and that Beijing opposed the use of military force, or the threat of, in an international relationship. US President Donald Trump has threatening a military strike against Syria, vowing to respond "forcefully" to Saturday's apparent chemical weapons attack on civilians in Douma, warning that Russia - or any other nation found to share responsibility - will "pay a price." Syrian opposition activists said 40 people died in Saturday night's chemical attack in Douma, the last remaining rebel bastion just outside of Damascus. The opposition blamed Assad's forces for the attack, accusations the government and its Russian backers strongly deny.

US commander backs Kurdish fighters at Syria outpost
 
02:14
(8 Feb 2018) Visiting a Syrian Democratic Forces military outpost in northern Syria, senior US commanders have pledged that their troops would remain in the northern Syrian town of Manbij despite Turkey's demands for a US pullout. The US-backed opposition Syrian Democratic Forces, led mainly by a Syrian Kurdish militia which Turkey is now fighting in Syria, liberated the town of Manbij from the Islamic State group in 2016. Manbij was hailed as an early success story in the American-backed fight against IS, but is now the scene of escalating regional tensions on the heels of military victories against the extremists. Wednesday's visit to the outpost by Lt. Gen. Paul E. Funk, the top US general in the coalition fighting the Islamic State, and Maj. Gen. Jamie Jarrard, the commander of the coalition's special-operation's component, came amid rising tensions between Turkey and the United States, NATO allies that have ended up on opposing sides in some aspects of the multi-layered war in Syria. Today, a small US base near Manbij, a cluster of a handful of tents, prefab housing units and American armored vehicles, reflects deepening American involvement in Syria. Since the ouster of IS from the border town, the US has maintained a military presence there and regularly conducts patrols in the area.

The group has protested since January after the extrajudicial killing of a young aspiring model from the tribes in Karachi. =========================================================== Clients are reminded: (i) to check the terms of their licence agreements for use of content outside news programming and that further advice and assistance can be obtained from the AP Archive on: Tel +44 (0) 20 7482 7482 Email: info@aparchive.com (ii) they should check with the applicable collecting society in their Territory regarding the clearance of any sound recording or performance included within the AP Television News service (iii) they have editorial responsibility for the use of all and any content included within the AP Television News service and for libel, privacy, compliance and third party rights applicable to their Territory.

Analysis: Trump Fumes over Attorney Raid
 
04:16
(10 Apr 2018) President Donald Trump is fuming after federal agents raided his attorney Michael Cohen's office in New York on Monday. Agents seized records on topics including a $130,000 payment made to porn actress Stormy Daniels. Trump said on Twitter Tuesday that "Attorney-client privilege is dead!" He added: "A TOTAL WITCH HUNT!!!"   Associated Press reporter Eric Tucker says that so far, there is no evidence that investigators violated attorney-client privilege in their investigation. The privilege is not absolute, it does not apply to every conversation between a lawyer and his client, and it can't be invoked when the discussion was part of an effort to commit a crime. The raid was overseen by the U.S. Attorney's office in Manhattan and was based in part on a referral from special counsel Mueller, said Cohen's lawyer, Stephen Ryan. It's an indication the Mueller is being careful to stick to the mandate of his investigation by referring what could be evidence of separate criminal conduct to an outside prosecutor. Trump raged over the raid Monday, calling it a "disgrace." He also called Mueller's investigation "an attack on our country," prompting new speculation that he might seek the removal of the Justice Department's special counsel. Some GOP members have been reluctant to weigh in on Trump's comments. Former Trump campaign manager Corey Lewandowski was spotted outside Cohen's temporary residence at a Manhattan hotel, which investigators also raided. Lewandowski avoided comment, saying "That's a question for the FBI." On Monday, South Carolina Sen. Lindsey Graham voiced support for Mueller and the investigation saying, "He's doing his job, in my view, professionally. We'll see what he comes up with."

Russia, Iran and Turkey leaders on Syria conflict
 
04:10
(4 Apr 2018) Turkish President Recep Tayyip Erdogan said on Wednesday that his military "won't stop" trying to oust Syrian Kurdish fighters from Syria's north, as he met with the leaders of Russia and Iran for talks on resolving the conflict. The three countries, which have teamed up to work for a Syria settlement despite their differences, reaffirmed their commitment to Syria's territorial integrity and the continuation of local cease-fires. They called on the international community to provide more aid for war-ravaged Syria. Erdogan, President Vladimir Putin of Russia and Iranian President Hassan Rouhani were holding their second summit to discuss Syria's future since attending a similar meeting in Sochi, Russia, in November. Erdogan said Turkish troops, which last month took control of the northwestern enclave of Afrin, would move eastward into Manbij and other areas controlled by the U.S.-backed Peoples' Protection Units, or YPG, which Turkey considers to be terrorists. Erdogan said the Turkish and Russian militaries were discussing the possibility of establishing field hospitals in Syria's Tal Abyad town to take care of people injured in attacks in the Damascus' eastern Ghouta suburb. He also spoke of plans to establish bakeries to help feed those in need. The three leaders' summit meeting came as the U.S. said its military mission to eradicate the Islamic State group in Syria was coming to a "rapid end" but offered no timetable for withdrawal. President Donald Trump had said earlier that the U.S.'s primary mission was to defeat IS and "we've almost completed that task." Asked about the possible U.S. pullout, Rouhani said the United States' move out out from Syria is an excuse for soliciting money from countries that want them to remain there.

Tehran residents react to protests in Iran
 
02:29
(4 Jan 2018) The strength of protests shaking Iran was unclear on Thursday after a week of unrest that killed at least 21 people, with fewer reports of demonstrations as government supporters again took to the streets in several cities and towns. It wasn't immediately clear if the drop in reports of new demonstrations challenging Iran's theocratic government meant the protests are subsiding or that the authorities' blocking of social media apps has managed to stop protesters from offering new images of rallies. Tehran streets looked calm and traffic was normal on Thursday. Security was not as tight as the past few days. But residents say economic issues need to be addressed. Another citizen said the protesters had political motivations, and were using initially economic protests to pursue other goals. State media and officials have accused protesters of acts of vandalism, saying some of them were controlled and funded by enemies.

Russian UK amb denies Macron has proof of Syria chemical attack

(13 Apr 2018) RESTRICTION SUMMARY: AP CLIENTS ONLY ASSOCIATED PRESS - AP CLIENTS ONLY London - 13 April 2018 1. Alexander Vladimirovich Yakovenko, Russian Ambassador to UK, enters news conference 2. SOUNDBITE (English) Alexander Vladimirovich Yakovenko, Russian Ambassador to UK: "Nearly six weeks have passed since the poisoning of Sergei and Yulia Skripal in Salisbury, and exactly a month since the Prime Minister Theresa May accused Russia of this crime. The British government still hasn't presented any evidence in support of its position that would confirm the official version. The investigation is conducted in the most non-transparent way. The British government refuse to cooperate at all with the Russian authorities, which have not received a single request for assistance. The Foreign and Commonwealth Office is continuously ignoring our legitimate requests and questions concerning the condition of Mr and Mrs Skripal's versions of this incident. Without any explanations, the British government continues to violate its obligation under the Vienna Convention 1963 and the Consular Convention, this is a bilateral convention, 1968. We are not allowed to see our citizens, talk to doctors, have no idea about the treatment the Russian nationals receive." ++BLACK FRAMES++ 3. SOUNDBITE (English) Alexander Vladimirovich Yakovenko, Russian Ambassador to UK: "The cooperation between the UK and the OPCW (Organisation for the Prohibition of Chemical Weapons), this is the the international organiation, is non-transparent as well. Instead of using the normal OPCW procedures, whereby the UK could have engaged Russia directly or through the OPCW Executive Council, the UK has chosen to cooperate bilaterally with the OPCW technical secretariat and in arrangement the details of which are unknown. My letter to the foreign secretary (UK Foreign Secretary Boris) Johnson remains unanswered. It looks like that he's not ready for the conversation or maybe he has lack (of) arguments. According to British media reports, the National Security Council has seized control over the media coverage of the Salisbury incident. All of this is yet another evidence of double standards of the British government that destroyed people's life and the basics of inter-state relations for the sake of narrow domestic political interest." ++BLACK FRAMES++ 4. SOUNDBITE (English) Alexander Vladimirovich Yakovenko, Russian Ambassador to UK: "We're interested in seeing independent experts there (in Syria) so they can make all the necessary tests. We welcome the OPCW (Organisation for the Prohibition of Chemical Weapons) director-general's decision to send a Fact-Finding Mission team to Douma, at the request of the Syrian government. We believe it should be deployed as soon as possible and we are ready to assist them. My information – they are coming (arriving) on the ground tomorrow. But I believe that any delay may be used to carry out military strikes to cover up all the evidence, or lack thereof, on the ground. We would like them to engage in a thorough examination in line with the rules of the organisation. That means visiting the place of the alleged incident and taking samples. Not just remotely studying social media messages and pictures. Two draft UN Security Council resolutions proposed by Russia with the integrated neutral investigative mechanisms were blocked by the same three permanent members of the Security Council, who are now threatening to act as the prosecutor, a judge and an executor, punishing Syria for an alleged crime that no one has investigated. It's clear that the goal of these unsubstantiated lies and the new blatent campaign against Syria is to discredit the Syrian government and to justify the possible use of force by external actors."

Andy Serkis and Benedict Cumberbatch discuss their 'Jungle Book' adaptation, 'Mowgli'
 
02:06
(25 Apr 2018) RESTRICTION SUMMARY: AP CLIENTS ONLY ASSOCIATED PRESS Las Vegas, 24 April 2018 1. Wide of director Andy Serkis speaking to reporters 2. SOUNDBITE (English) Andy Serkis, director/actor - on how his story is different than the "Jungle Book": "It's a familiar story but, as with all classic pieces of writing, the interpretation is everything and this I feel is probably closest to Rudyard Kipling's book that was written at the turn of the century, 19th century. It is very much located in Indian culture as a big Indian cast. In fact, you see a lot of Mowgli not only in the village, in the jungle, being raised as a feral child, as wolf with animals but also trying to negotiate how to become a human. And really what is I think what the book is really about is his wiliness and his steeliness and his using his skills and everything that he's learned emotionally and in terms of his animal side from being grown up with animals but applying that to, there's certain rules and customs that aren't right for him as an animal neither are there customs and traditions and ways of being in the human world that are right for him and he has to create his own identity." 3. Medium shot Benedict Cumberbatch speaking to reporters 4.  SOUNDBITE (English) Benedict Cumberbatch, actor - on what makes this film special: "One of the wonders of the film, what little I've seen of it, very very little, just some of the stuff I've done in it - it's seamless between live action, between real environments, between the jungle, the water, and this extraordinary rendition of our performances and animated creature. The creatures are very much... It's all nearer Kipling's intentions. It's, the creatures carry the spirit of the jungle with them and they're not shiny, pristine creatures who burst into song. These are animals and their animal nature is pretty laid bare, pretty open and honest and yeah, they don't mess around." 5.  SOUNDBITE (English) Andy Serkis, director/actor on when the film will be finished: "We are 10 days away, 10 days away from finishing." (Reporter: So no sleep for another 10 days.") "No. We had to break off to come talk about it, sort of just slightly before the final hurdle you know?" (Reporter: "Are you editing here? What work can you get done here?" "I literally flew over from the U.K. for today and I'm going back tonight, so yeah." STORYLINE: ANDY SERKIS AND BENEDICT CUMBERBATCH DISCUSS THEIR 'JUNGLE BOOK' ADAPTATION, 'MOWGLI' Andy Serkis could've done without a trip to Las Vegas' CinemaCon this week. The British director was on hand to promote "Mowgli" - his live-action reimaging of Rudyard Kipling classic "The Jungle Book." "We are 10 days away, 10 days away from finishing," smiled Serkis. "We had to break off to come talk about it, sort of just slightly before the final hurdle you know?" Serkis was joined in Sin City by actor Benedict Cumberbatch who will provide vocal work for Bengal tiger Shere Khan. "It's seamless between live action, between real environments, between the jungle, the water, and this extraordinary rendition of our performances and animated creatures," said the British actor. "The creatures are very much... It's all nearer Kipling's intentions. It's, the creatures carry the spirit of the jungle with them and they're not shiny, pristine creatures who burst into song.

Brantley Gilbert, Dashboard Confessional raise money for Waffle House shooting victims
 
04:01
(25 Apr 2018) NASHVILLE MUSICIANS MET WITH WAFFLE HOUSE SHOOTING HERO Country musician Brantley Gilbert and Chris Carrabba of the band Dashboard Confessional are teaming up to raise funds for victims of a shooting at a Tennessee Waffle House. On Wednesday (25 APRIL 2018) in Nashville, the two musicians met with survivors of Sunday's shooting, including a man lauded as a hero for wrestling away the weapon from the gunman. James Shaw Jr. and his friend Brennan McMurray were inside the restaurant early Sunday when a gunman barged in and started shooting. Four people were killed before Shaw was able to grab the gun, burning his hand in the process. The musicians will be selling at their upcoming concerts T-shirts with the words "I Believe in Heroism" and an image of Shaw's bandaged hand. Funds will benefit the four victims of the shooting, as well as those injured and Shaw as well. Gilbert said he believed Shaw was a hero, even if he thinks he's not. "I know he says he's not a hero and he was just trying to protect himself but anytime you stand up in a situation like that, my belief is you've got hero in you," said Gilbert. "When you think of a hero, you think of Batman or Superman, or something like, Wonder Woman, somebody like that," Shaw said. "And they are fictional characters. But if I say a regular guy took a gun from someone, I hope you can find that saving fire within yourself and you can possibly emulate that. And anybody can be a hero. I don't want this to seem like it's not real because if I did it then you all could do it. So that's pretty much my stance on the hero thing." Still Gilbert said he just wanted to thank Shaw for his actions. "Thank him for being a hero because he inspires people," Gilbert said. "Anytime you stand up to a situation like that it inspires me. Inspires everybody I think."

Celebrations underway but many still in IS captivity
 
02:09
(18 Apr 2018) LEADIN: Yazidis in Iraq gather to celebrate their new year. But many still wait for news of Yazidi women and girls who were taken by the Islamic State group. STORYLINE: Hundreds gather at the ancient shrine of Lalesh in northern Iraq. It is the central shrine of the Yazidi faith. Here they light candles and make wishes for the new year. They are celebrating the eve of Red Wednesday, as the Yazidi New Year is known. "We are congratulating the Yazidis wherever they are, in Iraq, in Germany, in Armenia, in Georgia, wherever they are we are celebrating with them," says celebrant Shiar Khudeida.   "We hope for a blessed year for them and we pray that this new year will be a blessed year for the whole of Iraq." Yazidis follow a religion with roots in the ancient Zoroastrian faith. They pray to an angel called Melek Taws, provoking the ire of Sunni extremists who have often called them devil worshippers. Thousands of Yazidi were murdered and kidnapped by the extremists in 2014 and about 3,000 are still missing. Many were taken into sexual slavery. "I came here to celebrate the new year and I hope that our girls and sisters will come back from the hands of Daesh (Islamic State group)," says Hatrin Amer. "I hope this year will bring many blessings and a happy life and lots of success for the Yazidis." Yazidi population centres have all been recaptured by Iraqi forces but many of their displaced remain stuck in camps because few public services have been restored in shattered cities like Sinjar and Mosul. Others are wary of the rival militia groups and security forces that are present across northern Iraq.

Kathy Griffin warns her nightmare can happen to you
 
06:15
(2 Apr 2018) KATHY GRIFFIN WARNS HER NIGHTMARE CAN HAPPEN TO YOU Kathy Griffin is ready to laugh with Americans about the time a controversial photograph got her in hot water with the feds - but she has a warning amid the jokes. "I really do believe if it happened to me it can happen to you." Griffin will embark on a North American tour this summer, a year after she was widely condemned for posing for a picture in which she gripped a bloodied rendering of Donald Trump's head. Ten months on, she is unbowed. "I'm the same girl I've always been _ just a hardworking, obnoxious, red-haired comedy girl. The whole time I've been consistent in just trying to make you laugh," she says. "Am I shocking sometimes? For sure. Do I go too far? I hope so. That's my job." The "Suddenly Susan" and "Kathy Griffin: My Life on the D-List" star lost income, received death threats, was denounced by Trump, landed on an Interpol list and was afraid to leave her home. She says she was under investigation by the Department of Justice for two months. "It shouldn't happen to an American citizen," she says, adding she worries that a 13-year-old who puts the same kind of photo on Twitter would trigger a federal investigation. Griffin insists that while she understands people don't like the image, it is a form of free speech. "If there's one amendment I'm familiar with it's the First Amendment. I know it back and forth and it's how I make my living." The comedian's life changed radically last May, when the image came out. "I really never thought that photo would take off at all. Like I've been doing 'shocking' things my whole career. Donald Trump has personally twice hired me to roast him," she says, calling the fallout "faux-outrage." She admits to a few missteps, including a hastily put-together apology video followed by a press conference with attorney Lisa Bloom in which she called Trump a "bully" - merely worsened the still-spiraling disaster. "My social media was so flooded that I really thought, 'OK, I am the most reviled person in the world right now," she recalls. "It's been a long time to sort of process that and figure out what's real and what isn't." On the day, Griffin says many colleagues, including Anderson Cooper, turned away. But one celebrity reached out, despite not knowing her well  - Jim Carrey advised her to find the comedy in the situation. "It was really meaningful to me that he called," she says. "Jim's advice was right on, which is, 'Lean into this topic and you'll find the comedy.' And luckily I found a lot of comedy while hibernating." Some of her material is inspired by a phone conversation with her mom. "My mother calls me, she was a little tipsy and she says, 'I'm watching Fox News with the sound off and they said that you joined ISIS, Kathleen. Now, of all the clubs you could have joined, why the hell did you join that one?'," Griffin recounts. "I don't think they're recruiting 57-year-old Irish-American comedians," Griffin cracks. "I don't think I would do very well in the training camps. I've seen those videos." Unable to tour in the United States, Griffin has been overseas, performing in 23 cities in 15 countries. This summer she plans to tour in Mexico, Canada and the United States, including stops in San Francisco, Seattle, Boston, Chicago and a sold-out gig at Carnegie Hall in New York. "I'm trying to sort of get people to forgive me and get people to come back to me or give me a chance. And it's interesting. It's really like I'm starting all over again."

Arrival of World Food Programme chief in Pyongyang
 
01:29
(8 May 2018) The United Nations World Food Programme (WFP) Executive Director David Beasley arrived in Pyongyang on Tuesday. The WFP says its work in North Korea is "under-funded". Beasley will meet "senior government officials" and visit schools and nurseries where the WFP helps North Koreans, according to a WFP news release. The World Food Programme built up a big presence in North Korea during the famine in the mid-1990s. In 2005, North Korea attempted to reduce reliance on food aid, and since then, the WFP's staff and funding for North Korea has reduced. But the WFP says it is still aiming to help 650,000 women and children in North Korea every month with basic food. The last time the WFP's executive director visited North Korea was Ertharin Cousin in 2014.

Former neighbour on poisoning of Russian ex-spy Sergei Skripal
 
02:49
(11 Mar 2018) A former Moscow neighbor of the ex-spy who was poisoned in England on Sunday said if the Russian government had wanted Sergei Skripal dead, he would have been killed in Russia a long time ago. Nikolai Tsiplakov told The Associated Press in an interview on Sunday that he lived in the same building as Skripal's family before the retired military intelligence officer was imprisoned for spying for Britain. Tsiplakov noted there is no proof of Russian involvement in exposing Skripal and his adult daughter to what British authorities say was a nerve agent. He said: "You need to understand, he's a former spy and he's a traitor. If they wanted him dead, they would have killed him in Russia a long time ago." Skripal was freed in 2010 as part of spy swap that in which Russian were traded from the West. Tsiplakov added: "If you need to get rid of a person, when the material is done with and unnecessary, you can throw it away. They can disappear." Tsiplakov says he was especially close Skripal's son, Alexander, who died last year at the age of 43.

Syrian government forces pushing to capture south Damascus suburbs
 
02:23
(29 Apr 2018) Syrian state media is reporting that its troops have captured most of the South Damascus neighbourhood of al-Qadam as well as the adjacent quarters of Assali and Joura. SANA said that the majority of the area is now under Syrian government control. Syrian forces continued to fire artillery at what they claimed were nearby positions of Islamic State (IS) group fighters in the formerly IS-held neighbourhood of Al Joura. The weeklong fighting in Hajar al-Aswad and the nearby Palestinian refugee camp of Yarmouk has killed dozens of fighters. The area is the last district out of government control in Damascus and its capture would boost security in Syrian President Bashar Assad's seat of power. On Sunday government forces took journalists on a tour of recently recaptured areas, showing what they said where IS-dug tunnels and largely destroyed abandoned apartment blocks. Syrian military raised a flag at one location in Joura. The area in southern Damascus is the last part of the capital not controlled by President Bashar Assad's forces. Other insurgents in the area, including an al-Qaida-linked group, have said they would relocate to rebel-held regions in northern Syria.

Judge dismisses coal company suit against HBO's John Oliver
 
01:06
(24 Feb 2018) JUDGE DISMISSES COAL COMPANY SUIT AGAINST HBO'S JOHN OLIVER A West Virginia judge has dismissed a lawsuit brought by coal company Murray Energy against HBO host John Oliver.    A segment of Oliver's Sunday show "Last Week Tonight" in June poked fun at Murray Energy CEO Robert Murray, who blames regulatory efforts by the Obama administration for damaging the coal industry. Oliver said the 77-year-old looked like a "geriatric Dr. Evil."    A Circuit Court judge in Marshall County, West Virginia, ruled on Wednesday that Murray's company failed to state a claim. The two-page ruling from Senior Judge Jeffrey Cramer was posted online by The Hollywood Reporter.    The Ohio-based company was seeking financial damages and a court order barring rebroadcasts of the segment's "defamatory statements."    HBO had argued the show didn't violate Murray Energy's rights or those of Murray.

Trump hosts Japanese PM Abe for dinner at Mar-a-Lago
 
02:16
(19 Apr 2018) President Donald Trump and first lady Melania hosted Japanese Prime Minister Shinzo Abe, his wife, and a Japanese delegation for dinner at Mar-a-Lago on Wednesday. The dinner comes after a two-day summit between the world leaders, which Trump said were "very productive days on trade, on military, on North Korea". Prime Minister Abe made some lighthearted remarks at the dinner, saying: "Today we also had the cheeseburger at the golf course, and on top of that we had the working lunch, so we already had two lunches on the same day and now we're going to have a dinner." Earlier on Wednesday, the U.S. and Japan said they've agreed to start talks to develop what the two leaders called a "free, fair and reciprocal" trade deal between the two countries.

Bill Cosby trial judge delivers two big victories to defense
 
01:03
(3 Apr 2018) BILL COSBY TRIAL JUDGE DELIVERS 2 BIG VICTORIES TO DEFENSE The judge in Bill Cosby's sexual assault retrial gave his legal defense a huge lift Tuesday (03APR2018) with two rulings that could bolster the 80-year-old comedian's efforts to show his accuser made up the allegations against him in hopes of a big payday. Judge Steven O'Neill said the defense can call a witness who says Cosby's accuser talked about framing a celebrity before she lodged sexual abuse allegations against Cosby in 2005. The judge also helped the defense case by ruling that jurors can hear how much Cosby ultimately paid the accuser, Andrea Constand, in a 2006 civil settlement. The rulings came ahead of a productive second day of jury selection in suburban Philadelphia, with a half-dozen jurors picked by midday to bring the total number to seven. Five of the jurors picked so far are white and two are black, with four men and three women. O'Neill's ruling to allow Marguerite Jackson to take the witness stand was at odds with his decision to block her from testifying at the first trial, which ended in a hung jury. At the time, the judge ruled Jackson's testimony would be hearsay after Constand, a former Temple University women's basketball administrator, testified she didn't know the woman. Since then, prosecutors have told Cosby's lawyers that Constand had modified her statement to acknowledge she ``recalls a Margo.'' Jackson, a longtime Temple official, has said that she and Constand worked closely together, had been friends and had shared hotel rooms several times. She has said Constand once commented to her about setting up a ``high-profile person'' and filing suit. Constand's lawyer has said Jackson isn't telling the truth. Jackson's availability as a witness for Cosby could be crucial to a defense plan to attack Constand's credibility. O'Neill didn't explain the reasoning behind his change of heart Tuesday but issued one caveat, saying he could revisit the issue of Jackson's testimony after Constand takes the stand at the retrial. Cosby is charged with drugging and sexually molesting Constand at his suburban Philadelphia home in 2004. He says the encounter was consensual. All of the jurors seated Tuesday said they had read media reports about Cosby's case but hadn't formed an opinion about his guilt or innocence and could serve as fair and impartial jurors. Cosby's lawyers complained that prosecutors had improperly excluded two white men from serving on the jury on the basis of race and age, including one who said he thought many of the women coming forward in the (hash)MeToo movement are ``jumping on the bandwagon.'' But Cosby's lawyers themselves blocked several white women from serving, and the judge rejected their argument about the prosecution. A second group of potential jurors underwent questioning Tuesday afternoon and proved more opinionated and less willing to serve than the panel that produced the first seven. Two-thirds said they already had formed an opinion about Cosby's guilt or innocence, and all but about 20 people begged off the case, saying it would be a hardship to serve. With only a dozen people from that group still in play as potential jurors as court adjourned Tuesday, officials were forced to summon a third batch of 120 potential jurors to the courthouse for Wednesday's session. As jury selection proceeded, The Associated Press and other news organizations challenged an arrangement that forces reporters to watch the proceedings on a closed-circuit feed from another courtroom. The camera shows the judge, prosecutors and defense lawyers, but not potential jurors who are being questioned as a group.

Sex Abuse Victim Speaks Against Ex-Doctor
 
00:48
(16 Jan 2018) FOR CLEAN VERSION SEE STORY NUMBER: apus090676 A judge is holding an extraordinary four-day sentencing hearing for a disgraced former Michigan sports doctor who sexually assaulted young elite gymnasts. A woman whose parents were friends with a disgraced former Michigan sports doctor has told a judge how he repeatedly sexually abused her at his house for six years when she was a child. Kyle Stephens was the first victim of nearly 100 girls and women to speak Tuesday at a sentencing hearing for Larry Nassar. She says the trial process "has been horrific, but surprisingly therapeutic." She said Nassar rubbed his genitals on her and digitally penetrated her, and her parents did not believe her. Nassar kept his head down and avoided looking at her and subsequent victims who testified. Stephens told Nassar that "little girls don't stay little forever" and "grow into strong women ... that destroy your world." Nassar pleaded guilty to molesting females with his hands at his Michigan State University office, his home and a Lansing-area gymnastics club. He also worked for Indianapolis-based USA Gymnastics, which trains Olympians.
