“Cristina! Asesina! Argentina!" went the cries outside of Buenos Aires’ Casa Rosada Monday evening. The Plaza de Mayo setting – home to countless famed moments in Argentine history – was just one of several where Buenos Aires citizens gathered in the thousands to declare their accusation that President Cristina Fernández de Kirchner was responsible for the death of Prosecutor Alberto Nisman, who only days ago accused the president of covering up Iranian ties to a 1994 terrorist bombing. Similar protests happened all over the country, meaning tens of thousands of Argentines at the very least are convinced that their head of state is somehow responsible for the murder.

An American teacher was stabbed to death in a woman's toilet at a shopping mall in Abu Dhabi. The murder was apparently carried out by a woman dressed head to toe in a traditional black abaya with black gloves and face cover, worn by may women in the Gulf. Investigations are still on going as to the suspects gender and identity. The victim of the attack has been identified as kindergarten teacher Ibolya Ryan, a Romanian born mother of 11 year old twins. She had previously taught school in Colorado.

A police officer belonging to the Alawite sect that is employed the regime was arrested and apparently tortured by FSA rebels operating in the "kurdish mountains" (Jebel Akrad).

He mentioned that they were paid 10,000 Syrian Liras for every person that they killed. He said that the initial reason for being mobilized was to quell the civilian demonstrations.

Chinese military troops rehearse their ceremonial procession. Thousands gather at the Memorial Hall in Nanjing to commemorate the 75th anniversary of the Nanjing Massacre, of which fewer than 200 survivors currently remain. On December 13, 1937, Japanese troops began the occupation of the then capital of China. According to the 1946-1948 Tokyo War Crimes Trials, over 300,000 Chinese were killed and at least 20,000 were raped over the course of six weeks. Hundreds of testimonies, diaries, photographs and film reels depict mass executions and brutal cases of torture and rape. Despite evidence, some Japanese officials have disputed the massacre’s legitimacy. As a formal apology has yet to be made, this disparity remains to be an underlying resentment in Sino-Japanese relations, even after 75 years have past.

Rwanda Reconciliation
Rwanda
By carloscastro
01 Jul 2012

SYNOPSIS
Nearly 20 years after the genocide in Rwanda, reconciliation between ex-prisoners and survivors has been a blessing and a curse, bringing villages together in forgiveness, while other victims live next-door to the very people who've committed atrocities that haven't been brought to justice.

"The first day we ex-prisoners and survivors sat face to face, we thought that the survivors would revenge. But they were also worried. They thought we had returned to commit another genocide," said a man who was imprisoned for eight years for the crimes he committed in 1994.

Reconciliation was the only way to survive and a political priority for the government that arose after the genocide and it is still in power. The justice of the Gacaca Courts — which were formed to convict people who committed war crimes — the government and the press all pushed on that direction of reconciliation. But at the same time, it has been imposed, a one-way process that created cracks. The suffering and the wounds of so many atrocities are still present today.

This documentary is part of a series called the ‘After Peace' project, which seeks to analyze and explain how four countries (Rwanda, Lebanon, Guatemala and Bosnia-Herzegovina) have dealt an armed conflict in their country in the last quarter of the 20th century.

STORY OF A TALIBAN AMBUSH
Kandahar, Afghanistan
By The Journalist Connection
27 Oct 2010

KANDAHAR: AFGHANISTAN: Abdul Khaliq was a poor farmer from the Panjwayi district of Kandahar province. On February 6th, 2009, an international organization gave him free wheat seeds, fertilizers, and cement parcels so that he could make a living without having to grow opium poppies.

That same morning, Abdul rented two trucks, with drivers and helpers, to transport these goods from Kandahar city to his village in Panjwayi.

While en route, a group of Taliban ambushed the trucks. The fact that the trucks were carrying “infidel products” was enough for the Taliban to murder everyone on the spot without conducting any further investigation. Along with Abdul, the Taliban killed the two truck drivers and their two helpers. Their bullet-riddled bodies were found in a small side road not far from the site of the attack.

I knew Abdul because he was a relative of a friend of mine. As soon as I heard what had happened I went to Abdul’s house.

His body was covered with a cloth, and laid out in the courtyard of the family’s house to allow relatives and friends to take a last look at him. When I saw him I could not believe my eyes. It looked like the Taliban had emptied three magazines of AK-47 in his body. How can human beings do something like this? How can they go so far away from humanity?

Abdul’s brother was yelling and screaming in front of the body while his relatives tried to calm him down. I could hear crying and wailing coming from the women’s quarters. The 7-year-old son of Abdul was also there.

In that house full of misery and desperation I became deeply upset and fell into my thoughts. As a civilian living in Kandahar I know about these things. It doesn’t matter whether it’s the United States or the Taliban doing the shooting. Those who get killed are always civilians. I remember thinking to myself: today the Taliban killed Abdul in cold blood; tomorrow perhaps the American soldiers will do the same to someone else.

NATO SHOT AN INNOCENT MAN
Kandahar, Afghanistan
By The Journalist Connection
27 Oct 2010

KANDAHAR, AFGHANISTAN: I still remember what I saw on that morning as if it were today. It was August 17, 2007, and I was driving my motorcycle to the school where I work as an English teacher. The time was 6:45 a.m., and the sun was just starting to rise.

I made a turn onto a street called Alama Habibi Watt, near Zahir Shahi High School, and I saw several NATO tanks rolling along the road. They were beige in color and had machine guns and cameras mounted on top. A few people were walking in the street, but not many.

The front lights of the tanks signaled everyone to step aside and give way. People here are used to tanks and know that they must let them pass first.

A young man on a bicycle stopped to allow the tanks to pass. He was wearing a light shalwar kameez and a Baluchi hat. When the NATO convoy was in front of him, the man glanced at the soldiers.

Then I heard a shot. I still don’t understand why, but one of the NATO gunners sitting on top of a tank had shot the man on the bicycle in his forehead, killing him instantly.

One shot to the head and the soldiers drove away without any explanation. It all happened very quickly. When I saw this I felt scared and disheartened, so I left immediately and went to school to teach my class. I thought I could just move on and forget what I had seen. But as I talked to my students and answered their questions I felt a strange pain deep inside me. It was one of the worst days in my life.
