(15 May 2018) TARAJI P. HENSON: IT WAS LOVE AT FIRST SIGHT WITH FIANCE KELVIN HAYDEN Taraji P. Henson was all smiles Monday (14 MAY 2018) on the red carpet, basking in the glow of her recent engagement. The "Empire" star got engaged to former NFL cornerback Kelvin Hayden on Mother's Day. "I knew he was gonna pop the question because he all but told me himself. I just didn't know when. That surprised me. He just did it," said Henson, as she attended an annual event in New York where Fox promotes its new TV lineup to advertisers. The actress said she was introduced to Hayden by her makeup artist three years ago -- and it was love at first sight. "She was like, 'You need to go out. You need to meet somebody. You're too fly. You're too amazing.' I was like, 'I don't know.' She's like, 'You're not gonna meet him at home. You need to go out.'" The makeup artist arranged a party full of eligible bachelors for Henson to mingle with. "I remember I was like, 'You better show me the pictures of some of these guys because I don't want to embarrass you and I feel weird doing this anyway but I'm gonna do it," she recalled. "She kept showing me his picture and it was like a close-up and I remember I zoomed into his eyes and I was like, I felt a spark. And I was like, 'Wow, something about his eyes are so gentle.' And you know how they say you can fall in love at first sight from a picture? That's exactly what happened so when we got to the actual event, I met everybody, I shook all the other guy's hands and I literally was looking for him and when he walked up to where I was it was like people parted like the red sea, a light came on, I heard angels and he reached out to shake my hand and we danced and we talked and we were hanging out every day since," she laughed. Henson says her "Empire" co-stars are thrilled with the news. "Jussie came down to my room and screamed and did backflips. Terrence said some amazing things about my fiance today in interviews because he's known him since we started dating and he's just happy. They're all really happy for me," she said. Howard says Hayden must be special for Henson to choose to be with him. "Watching so many people try and court her and the integrity that she showed. She's always had a motto. I've never known any person that she's worked with that's ever been able to go on a date with her, you know, she's that secure about maintaining her integrity so for her to let Kelvin in I'm like, wow. That's a big move. That's a big move right there for her." Fox and other broadcast networks are presenting their new schedules to advertisers in New York this week.

Olympic gold medalist Shiffrin: I'm no Michael Phelps
 
03:22
(10 Feb 2018) US ski racer Mikaela Shiffrin couldn't help but laugh on Saturday when a reporter asked what her reaction was to being compared to Michael Phelps, the US swimmer who is the most decorated Olympian in history. "You're crazy," the American ski racer replied. "OK, he has, what, 23 medals?" Actually, Phelps' haul is 23 golds - and 28 medals in all. Shiffrin's only medal so far is a gold in slalom at age 18 in 2014 at Sochi. She comes to the Pyeongchang Games with a chance to become the first skier to win that race twice in a row at the Olympics. She will also be among the favourites in Monday's giant slalom, and might also enter the downhill and super-G. For now, though, she'll only commit to entering the slalom and giant slalom. "I would like to compete in everything," she said. "I'm not sure if I'm actually going to have the energy to do that."

Sean Penn: Bradley Cooper remake of 'A Star is Born' is astonishing
 
02:54
(28 May 2018) SEAN PENN: BRADLEY COOPER REMAKE OF 'A STAR IS BORN' IS ASTONISHING The anticipated remake of "A Star is Born" doesn't premiere until October but it's already gaining buzz. The movie is the directorial debut of actor Bradley Cooper, who also stars in the film alongside Lady Gaga, who plays an aspiring singer - a role previously played by Judy Garland (the 1954 version) and Barbra Streisand (the 1976 version). A trailer premiered at CinemaCon in Las Vegas recently to applause from the crowd of theater owners and exhibitors and tweets of praise from journalists in attendance. One person who has seen an early screening is actor Sean Penn, who described it during a recent interview as "one of the best movies I've seen in I don't know how many years." "The acting is brilliant. Both, they are astonishing in it. And he as a director is the kind of artist that we had when I was kind of coming up as an audience. I knew he was a very talented actor, I did not know what was going on inside that guy's brain until I saw this movie and so that got – I'm really excited to see because: A, it's a great movie for a cinephile whose all about art films because it's all there. But that doesn't mean that everybody else isn't going to understand it and love it. This thing is like a Hal Ashby move. It's for everybody. It's a great movie for everybody instead of a pandering movie to make sure, for anybody." Cooper already has his next directing gig lined up, helming and starring in Leonard Bernstein biopic "Bernstein." Bernstein was named conductor of the New York Philharmonic orchestra at 25. He then wrote and composed the music for the film "West Side Story." A second movie about Bernstein is also in the works with Jake Gyllenhaal in the lead role.

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. Various of Syrian government forces unloading weapons from truck 2. Wide of Syrian and Russian flags flying over the site 3. Various of weapons, military equipment and Syrian forces 4. Mid of what appears to be military tactical radios made by the French company Thales, with manual reading "Thales" 5. Close of manual reading "Thales" 6.

Mid of tank with signs reading (Arabic): "Army of Islam, Ahrar Al Sham Movement, Easter Qalmoun"   10. Line of pickup trucks mounted with heavy machinegun 11. Mid of ambulance 12. 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.

'Arrested Development’ stars support Jeffrey Tambor during one of the actor's first public appearanc
 
05:28
(18 May 2018) 'ARRESTED DEVELOPMENT' STARS SUPPORTS JEFFREY TAMBOR DURING THE SERIES' SEASON FIVE PREMIERE The creator and executive producer of "Arrested Development" acknowledges that some people will not like his decision to keep actor Jeffrey Tambor in the show after allegations of sexual misconduct surfaced last October.    "Good people will find this offensive," explained Mitchell Hurwitz. "I too get worked up when I hear about Harvey Weinstein and other people who have taken advantage of people. But I also believe very strongly that we don't want to live in a world where accusations ruin people's lives. We have tried that as a human race and it doesn't always, doesn't work out great, you know? So accusations are very different than proof and, you know, we obviously are going to support people that haven't done, that haven't been proved guilty." Hurwitz said production was nearly wrapped on season five when news broke of the allegations made by Tambor's former assistant and an actress on his other show, "Transparent." "Not only do I support him as a friend, but I've known him for 20 years. I've worked with him for 20 years and I've never seen any behavior like that described. I've never, even in private he's never been in any way inappropriate about, we don't talk about women or objectify. It's just not who he is and he's a lot of things that I'd like to list, a lot of really bad qualities I'd like to list for you now, but nowhere in there, in my experience, is any kind of creep," said Hurwitz. The "Arrested Development" cast unanimously supported the 73-year-old actor at the Los Angeles premiere for the cult comedy's new season. The event also marked one of the first public appearances for Tambor in recent months. "It's great to have everybody. No, it's great to have everybody here, you know? We are a family and it's great to have everybody in the family here," said co-star Will Arnett. Tambor denies the misconduct claims that led to his firing on Amazon's "Transparent" earlier this year. His "Arrested Development" co-stars said they could only speak to their own experiences with the Emmy-winning actor.    "All I know about is 'Arrested Development' and he's always just been incredible with us and I'm really looking forward to seeing him tonight," Jason Bateman said on his was into the screening. "My experience with Jeffrey has been nothing but respectful," echoed Tony Hale. "And he is such a funny man. He's so talented and he's an integral part of the show and just my experience has been nothing but respectful. I was not, I don't have information on that other… But like, if I'm speaking from my perspective, it's been nothing but respectful." Tambor posed for photos with his wife Kasia Ostlun but did not do interviews with the press. Actor-comedian David Cross was one of the first "Arrested Development" stars to speak out publicly in support of Tambor.   "I'll say what I've said before, I've said my piece. I stand by it. I support him as a friend and a person. I don't condone any of those, that kind of behavior, but I support my friend," Cross said on the red carpet. "Love Jeffrey!" said Portia de Rossi. "I've always loved Jeffrey and we support him and adore him and, yeah, he's terrific." When asked about Tambor remaining in season five, Jessica Walter, who plays his wife, simply said, "The family is the family. You can't cut anybody out nor would we ever want to. It is what it is."

Andy Samberg and his 'Brooklyn Nine Nine' costars react to comedy's cancellation on Fox and revival
 
01:57
(14 May 2018) ANDY SAMBERG AND HIS 'NINE-NINE' CO-STARS REACT TO SHOW'S REVIVAL The cast of "Brooklyn Nine-Nine" is celebrating their show's revival by NBC, one day after it was cancelled by Fox. The network quickly swooped in after Fox dumped it last week, adding it to NBC's midseason schedule. While the fan outcry was heartening, NBC Entertainment Chairman Robert Greenblatt said Sunday that because of business considerations, the pickup already was in the works. The show is made by an NBC Universal-owed studio. "It was intense," said Samberg Monday in New York at an annual event where networks promote their TV shows to advertising executives. "I'm a producer on the show so I knew more than the rest of our cast but I was still definitely getting a little nervous. Anytime you have to stop doing something you love it's a bummer and we really love making this show so we were definitely upset and it was like a little bit of a tumultuous 24 hours that spit us back onto this here carpet," he laughed. "It's a night and day experience," added co-star Terry Crews. "All of a sudden you got your job back and it's bigger. You find not only are you back but you're on NBC. This is the biggest network I've ever been on. It's absolutely amazing. I grew up watching NBC, you know what I mean? And it's so - Andy being from the 'SNL' family, it was already owned by NBCUniversal so now it's perfect."

'Riverdale' star Lili Reinhart says Kate Moss told her at the Met Gala that she watches the show
 
04:45
(17 May 2018) 'RIVERDALE' CAST TALK THE SHOW'S VARIETY OF FANS, INCLUDING MODEL KATE MOSS Fresh off its second season finale, the cast of "Riverdale" gathered in New York Thursday (17 MAY 2018) for an annual event where its network, The CW, presents its new TV lineup to advertisers. The series is based on the characters of Archie Comics, living in a small town called Riverdale, which is often dark and gritty beneath its perfect image. KJ Apa stars as Archie Andrews alongside Cole Sprouse as his best friend Jughead Jones, with Lili Reinhart as Betty Cooper, the girl next door, and Camila Mendes as his on again - off again love, Veronica Lodge. Sprouse said the show was conceived as a teen version of "Twin Peaks." "I'm a big (David) Lynch fan myself and after I sat through 'Twin Peaks' I got the general idea of what was gonna happen in our show, I think in terms of success we never could've calculated the success but I think we definitely reduce risk in a way. We were using characters that were very well established and very well known and we were re-introducing them in a much more realistic, three dimensional setting so in that way we are already engaging a larger audience but I think we were still taking a risk, comic fans can be pretty volatile when we take content that's not like the original that they knew, but the 'Archie' fan base was wonderful and super accepting of us and what we were doing with the show and how we were turning it, so it's a privilege to think that people watch it and it's been successful." The show has built up a following of fans of all ages, including celebrities. "I was at the Met Ball last week and Kate Moss was like, 'I love your show, I watch your show with my daughter' and I was like, 'Great,' said Reinhart. "It's like it's always crazy to see who watches the show and who gets invested in it." Charles Melton, who plays jock Reggie Mantle recalled a surprising fan encounter. "I was on a flight back home to Kansas and there's this guy, you know, wearing a trucker hat and everything. He bumps into me and I'm about to fall asleep and he goes, 'Hey, man. You're Reggie Mantle, right? From 'Riverdale.'" This guy's like 45-years-old and I'm like, 'Yeah, man.' He goes, 'I knew it' and he looks back at his wife and he goes, 'I knew it, I told you. I told you.' And she's like, 'I am so sorry for my husband. I am so sorry.' I thought that was pretty cool." Sprouse says the series is appreciated differently internationally. "Actually internationally I think our show is understood a lot differently than it is in the States. Our show, the entirety of our show is very tongue-in-cheek poke at soap operas and how camp it is and how huge it can be and how, I mean it's practically visual bubblegum I think. That's really well understood in places like London where everyone gets that that's what we're doing. Places like Paris or France really enjoy the neo noir classic Americana feel and cinematography that we're pushing and I think in those two cities specifically the abstract of our show is much more well-understood than it is in the States." "Riverdale" returns this fall for its third season Wednesdays on The CW.

Turkey to restore Ottoman-era island buildings
 
03:33
(28 Dec 2017) LEAD IN: Turkey will restore Ottoman-era buildings on Suakin Island in Sudan. But its president has denied they will also construct a naval base in the port city. STORY-LINE: Suakin Island sits in the waters of the Red Sea, part of the port city of Saukin in north-east Sudan. The little patch of land has a rich history but its ancient buildings have decayed in recent times. But a new deal with Turkey is set to breathe new life into the area. The foreign power plans to restore the Ottoman-era ruins - though it denies reports it will also construct a naval base here. Shenqrai Ibrahim, a history researcher, says the city is one of the oldest in Sudan and even has some supernatural tales attached to it. "They said that it was from the time of our master Solomon and he was jailing the genie, so the name of Suakin came from the word 'sawajen' (which means jails)," he explains. It is not the first time Suakin has experienced Turkish influence - it was conquered by Ottoman sultan Selim I in the 16th century. It was on the route of the slave trade and was an important hub for merchants. It was once Sudan's main port - a title now taken by Port Sudan, 50 kilometres (31 miles) north. The British Army also entered the city during the 1800s. Buildings on Saukin Island were constructed from coral harvested in the area. But now they are in disrepair and the island is largely abandoned. Local politicians hope the island will soon be restored to the heady heights of those glory days. "We are expecting a kick-start to tourism on the island, and there will be the biggest marina for tourist yachts and for receiving tourists who are interested in diving, entertainment and resorts," says Khaled Sadan, the Suakin Governor. Turkish President Recep Tayyip Erdogan has denied that his country is constructing a naval base here. Asked about reports that Turkey would build a naval base at Suakin, Erdogan told a group of journalists on his return from an Africa visit that included Sudan: "There is no such thing as a military port."

(4 Jan 2018) ON NYFCC RED CARPET, WINNERS SHOW PLAN TO SHOW SOLIDARITY FOR SEXUAL MISCONDUCT VICTIMS AT GOLDEN GLOBES When it comes to wearing black for solidarity at this year's Golden Globes, Saoirse Ronan says that's the plan for her, Greta Gerwig was non-committal, and if Tiffany Haddish might wear nothing at all. Ronan, Gerwig, and Haddish shared their plans on the red carpet for New York Film Critic Circle Awards Wednesday (3 JAN. 2018) in New York. Many attendees at this Sunday's Golden Globes ceremony plan to wear black, in support of the victims of the sexual misconduct scandal currently plaguing the film industry. Ronan was awarded Best Actress by the NYFCC for her performance in "Lady Bird." She has also been nominated for a Golden Globe for that role, and intends to wear black to the ceremony. "Yes, yep, that's the plan and yeah, it's exciting and I think it will just send a really sort of strong message and it will start the year in a more unified way." Ronan said. Her director Greta Gerwig took home the award for best director. She's nominated at Sunday's Golden Globes for writing the screenplay to "Lady Bird." While Gerwig supports the victims, she was more guarded when it came to disclosing the color of her attire for Sunday night. "I'm going to let that moment be its own moment when we're there. But I'm very excited about the solidity that's come together and I'm really moved by the Time's Up movement," Gerwig said. Then there's Tiffany Haddish. The NYFCC awarded her with the supporting actress honor for "Girls Trip." The Globes were not as kind, so she will not be at the ceremony. But the actress and comedienne may check out some of the post-show celebrations. "I will be on a plane, probably asleep on my way home. I've got three shows to do after this in three different cities, so I'll probably be in a coma. Now I have been invited to some parties, though. So if I get five-hour energy drink in me, your girl might go to the party. But I think I'm going to be asleep." When asked if she planned on wearing black on the night, Haddish joked: "No, I'm going be naked. That's how I sleep." The Time's Up movement was started January to address inequality and injustice in the workplace which has kept underrepresented groups from reaching their full potential. And it's not just women that are part of the movement. Best actor winner Timothee Chalamet said he will support the victims on Sunday with his attire. "It's wearing black and being in a position of support, and an ally, and making sure the conversation moves forward, and - and feeling like it's an honor to be a part of this new wave and new generation of show business that's way more conscientious about these things," Chalamet said. The "Call Me By Your Name" star has been picking up accolades this awards season, including a Golden Globe nomination. Best supporting actor winner Willem Dafoe isn't sure how the flurry of sexual misconduct allegations will change the industry, but he feels the keeping the conversation alive is a good start. "I'm glad that the discussion goes on. Hopefully it will take us to a better place where there's more equality and more justice," Dafoe said. Dafoe took home the NYFCC award for his performance as the manager of the residential motel in the low-budget indy film, "The Florida Project." "I was just saying I don't measure the size of the project. I look at the filmmaker a lot. Sean Baker is someone that I've admired, and when he wanted to talk to me and I read a beautiful script - and he told me how he wanted to shoot the film, shooting in an actual motel with people living there that reflected the situation that we were telling in the story, I was in, you know," Dafoe said. And she was not alone.

Sophia robot takes first steps ++EMBARGOED 1300 GMT++
 
05:10
(8 Jan 2018) LEADIN: The humanoid robot Sophia is taking her first steps thanks to a new partnership with a university robotics lab. The Hong Kong-based startup Hanson Robotics has joined forces with experts at the University of Las Vegas to give walking legs to the talkative droid. STORYLINE: One small step for Sophia, one giant leap for AI. In the workplace of the Drones and Autonomous Systems Lab (DASL) at the University of Las Vegas, Sophia is taking her first ever steps. Gingerly, she shuffles along watched closely by her creator, Hanson Robotics founder and CEO David Hanson. The addition of legs to the lifelike bot is another stage in pushing the boundaries of artificial intelligence for Hanson and his team. "We're really aspiring for Sophia to help people in medical applications, therapy, medical assistance and by giving her a body then that means that Sophia can help to learn to work with us in factories and help us around the home," says Hanson. "Eventually, we expect that she will be truly alive and with us in our world helping people on a daily basis." Experts from the University of Las Vegas created DRC-HUBO, a walking robot that won the DARPA Robotics Challenge (DRC) in 2015, beating 22 competitors from five different countries. That expertise is now being applied to Sophia's evolving mobility. Hanson Robotics is also partnering with South Korea based Rainbow Robotics to make Sophia mobile. "So currently, with mechanical engineering practices, it's kind of rigid, which means a if robot falls, we have to calculate how to yield and it's very easy for robots to break and how to respond when walking that's very complicated too," says Hanson. Sophia first debuted in March 2016. A multinational team of scientists and engineers are fine tuning her appearance and the algorithms that enable her to smile, blink and refine her understanding and communication. Her skin is made of a nanotech material that Hanson invented and dubbed "Frubber," short for flesh-rubber, that has a flesh-like bouncy texture mimicking human skin. Cameras in her eyes and a 3D sensor in her chest help her "see." The processor that serves as her brain combines facial and speech recognition, natural language processing, speech synthesis and a motion control system. "Our AI team is really aspiring to use Sofia as a platform for achieving human-level general intelligence, that's creativity, the ability to dream and imagine, the ability to have compassion," says Hanson. "And that's another way that the physical body is really important. So, the machines can understand what it means to feel human through embodiment, compassion, to feel with us. "That's really important for artificial intelligence, I think, to be safe in the future, so they can understand what it feels to be human." The annual Consumer Electronics Show (CES) runs 9-12 January. Over 3,900 exhibitors will crowd Las Vegas convention centres showcasing the latest in high-tech products, devices and services. Top trends at this year's event include artificial intelligence, the 'Internet of Things' and mobility tech.

Diplo on Cardi B: She's 'one of the most fascinating females in music'
 
03:35
(12 Jan 2018) DIPLO ON CARDI B: SHE'S 'ONE OF THE MOST FASCINATING FEMALES IN MUSIC' With few exceptions, male artists have been dominating the American music charts over the past year. Despite the success of artists like Taylor Swift, Camila Cabello and Cardi B, EDM star Diplo attributes the relative lack of female chart-toppers to a shift in the way people are creating and consuming music. "We're having a lot of songs that are just becoming, not really one hit wonders, but we have songs that are charging up the charts themselves via streaming services. A lot of young records, rap music, and I think these records are doing it on their own. They're not working with giant marketing machines. And if you do rely on those things, like Katy's albums or… 'cause nothing is guaranteed anymore. That's the main thing. Years ago, you could always bet your money, like some of these pop stars were like the big banks that couldn't fail. But now nothing is guaranteed." Katy Perry's "Witness" dropped last June and underperformed compared to her previous releases. According to Diplo, another problem is that U.S. charts don't allow for movement among the top positions. "We have longer running number ones too. Like in England, there's a new number one... Basically, there's like 40 number ones a year or every week there's like a new number one. So Rita Ora had like three number ones this year. In England, charts change a lot quicker. In America, we kind of have people who stay in the charts and it's a larger country to kind of like move in one direction or another. But there wasn't a lot of records out either. Last year (2016) was like you had Beyonce, you had Adele. You had these huge records that took up all the space on the charts. It just comes in waves." Many are hopeful for more female chart toppers in 2018. So far "Perfect," from Ed Sheeran and Beyonce, has led Billboard's Hot 100 pack. Camila Cabello's "Havana" continues its reign on the Pop Songs chart and Cardi B recently became the third act to nab three Hot 100 spots in the top 10 at the same time. "I think it's kind of refreshing that we have records like Cardi B going number one. That would never happen four or five years ago. Cardi B is only the fourth black female to, you know, to have a top 10 record in the last decade. It was only Beyonce, Rihanna, Nicki Minaj and Cardi was the other woman to kind of break into that so that's really cool and she came out of 'Love and Hip-Hop.' And like, no one would put her money on her two years ago when you just had her skits. But I thought she was one of the most fascinating females in music, so I'm happy for her." Cardi B started off as an ex-stripper on VH1 reality show "Love and Hip-Hop" before debuting "Bodak Yellow," which became a No. 1 smash.

OIC Tourism summit opens in Dhaka
 
04:00
(6 Feb 2018) LEADIN: Ministers from Muslim countries are meeting to discuss ways to boost tourism. Members of the Organization of Islamic Cooperation want to attract both Muslim and non-Muslim visitors to their countries. STORYLINE: The future of Islamic tourism is being discussed in Dhaka. Tourism ministers from member countries of the Organization of Islamic Cooperation (OIC) have gathered in the Bangladeshi capital. They want to find ways to promote the heritage and culture of their countries and attract people to visit their shores. Prime Minister of Bangladesh Sheikh Hasina inaugurates the conference. She tells delegates there is "huge potential to develop faith-based Islamic products and services". The conference is being held under the theme "Enhancing Regional Integration through Tourism". Experts say Muslim-friendly tourism has been growing at a fast pace and can be a driver for economic growth in OIC countries as well as the global market. Among the popular destinations for Islamic tourism are Saudi Arabia, Iran, United Arab Emirates, Qatar, Kuwait, Indonesia and Malaysia. Emel Cong, executive assistance of Secretary General of SMIIC, The Standards and Metrology Institute for Islamic Countries, says Muslims "want to travel". She says priorities are the right facilities, halal food, friendly people and a sense of safety. With a rising number of Muslim tourists, the demand for infrastructure and facilities designed in line with the Islamic principles is also increasing. These include halal hotels that serve only halal food and no alcohol, don't allow gambling and provide prayer mats. There are also Islamic-themed tour packages with visits to the mosques and Islamic monuments, especially during Ramadan. "The heritage of the Muslim nations is a great potential, so to be able to attract other nations, not only the Muslim nations, we want other nations also to visit these attractive and these heritage places in Muslim countries," says Saeed Ohadi, Deputy of the Vice President responsible for tourism and heritage. "We have to try to arrange the infrastructures: airports, transportations, accommodations, hotels, infrastructures for the attractive places." The conference runs from 5-7 February.

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.

Sean Lennon and Huang Zitao attend St. Laurent fashion show
 
04:26
(7 Jun 2018) FRENCH FASHION POWERHOUSE SAINT LAURENT TAKES NEW JERSEY, SEAN LENNON ATTENDS Saint Laurent decamped from Paris to New Jersey for a menswear show with a shine that matched the glittery Manhattan nightscape Wednesday (6 JUNE 2018) just across the downtown harbor. Creative director Anthony Vaccarello, in his first turn in town, put his guests on a high platform and his models, both men and women, on a liquid black marble runway overlooking New York's twinkly skyscrapers on the other side of the water. His clothes? They were mostly black, silver and gold, with snakeskin touches here and there, including a rustic tan jacket that evoked, what, the American West? Also plentiful: bandanas. The finale came in a march of bare-chested men painted in silver glitter to go with their black disco pants. Vaccarello's vision, he said after the show, was indeed an urban cowboy, one fond of 1970s short jackets paired with high-waisted trousers. Some had on killer boots in white leather and snakeskin. There were also black hats, wide-brimmed ones, red cowboy shirts, silver belts and a lacy open weave in a long-sleeve top. "New York is freedom, a city brimming with energy and possibilities," Vaccarello said, "the perfect backdrop to frame the spirit of this menswear collection," one that had him crossing boundaries by putting women in the same clothes. As for New Jersey, the French-based fashion powerhouse built open scaffolding to go with the shiny floor, facing guests that included Sean Lennon, David Franco and Ezra Miller (he's "The Flash") toward the inky water and New York skyline. Charlotte Gainsbourg, Kate Moss, Lauryn Hill and daughter Selah Marley were also on hand at Liberty State Park with actors Caleb Landry Jones, Miles Heizer and Tommy Dorfman Find out more about AP Archive: http://www.aparchive.com/HowWeWork Twitter: https://twitter.com/AP_Archive Facebook: https://www.facebook.com/APArchives Google+: https://plus.google.com/b/102011028589719587178/+APArchive​ Tumblr: https://aparchives.tumblr.com/​​ Instagram: https://www.instagram.com/APNews/ You can license this story through AP Archive: http://www.aparchive.com/metadata/youtube/163e6f795cf66aca1f6badea97aed69b

(23 May 2018) RESTRICTION SUMMARY: AP CLIENTS ONLY Dept. of Defense Video - AP CLIENTS ONLY Puna, Hawaii - 22 May 2018 ++NIGHT SHOTS++ 1. Various aerial footage of lava flow and fissure eruptions from Puna area of Kilauea volcano STORYLINE: The Hawaii Army National Guard captured night aerial shots of lava flowing and fissures erupting from the Kilauea volcano along the lower Puna area of Big Island. Scientists say sulfur dioxide emissions from the volcano have more than doubled since the current eruption began. The increase reported Tuesday could boost volcanic smog, known as vog, but trade winds are currently carrying most of the gas offshore. The U.S. Geological Survey says the volcano is belching 15,000 tons of sulfur dioxide each day from vents. Volume spiked as more lava began flowing. =========================================================== 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.

Bob Marley's granddaughter wants accountability after NY Airbnb police stop
 
03:07
(10 May 2018) Bob Marley's granddaughter said Thursday that she felt like her life was put in danger when a woman saw her and three friends leaving an Airbnb rental in California, got suspicious and called the police. Donisha Prendergast and her friends, Kelly Fyffe-Marshall and Komi-Oluwa Olafimihan, all of whom are black, plus an additional friend who is white, were leaving the home in Rialto on April 30 when a white neighbor called 911 and reported strangers carrying bags out of the house. Police officers stopped the renters and questioned them for 22 minutes while they contacted the homeowner. Rialto Police released body camera video footage showing that the officers were polite and professional. They never drew their weapons. Some engaged in joking chatter with the renters while they checked out their story. Prendergast, though, said at a news conference Thursday in New York that she felt she was singled out because she is black. She cited instances where innocent black people have been shot by police. Lawyers for Prendergast, Fyffe-Marshall and Olafimihan said they are considering a lawsuit over the incident. At the news conference, Prendergast said the police should be investigated for how they handled the situation. So should the neighbor who called police in the first place, she said. Fyffe-Marshall, who is a filmmaker, posted a short video of part of the encounter on Facebook, writing that they were "surrounded" by seven police cars and told to put their hands in the air. The longer video released by Rialto police captured a cordial interaction, though one in which the black renters questioned whether the 911 call was racially motivated and expressed frustration that it was taking so long to clear up the situation. Rialto police Chief Mark Kling said the department has been unfairly accused of racism.

Convoy believed to be carrying NKorean leader drives through downtown Singapore
 
01:26
(10 Jun 2018) A convoy of North Korean vehicles believed to be carrying Kim Jong Un drove through downtown Singapore on Sunday as hundreds lined the streets ahead of a historic summit between the North Korean leader and US President Donald Trump. A large limousine with a North Korean flag was surrounded by other black vehicles with tinted windows as it sped through the city's streets. Earlier, a plane carrying Kim landed at Singapore's airport amid huge security precautions on this city-state island. The North Korean leader is set to meet Tuesday with Trump in what's shaping up to be one of the most unusual summits in modern history.    Despite the initial high stakes of a meeting meant to rid North Korea of its nuclear weapons, the talks have been portrayed by Trump in recent days more as a get-to-know-each-other meeting. He has also raised the possibility of further summits.

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.

Russell Crowe attends 'Gladiator' screening at Rome's Colosseum, where it's shown with a live orches
 
04:05
(6 Jun 2018) RUSSELL CROWE ATTENDS 'GLADIATOR' SCREENING AT ROME COLOSSEUM, WHERE IT'S SHOWN WITH A LIVE ORCHESTRA Russell Crowe returned to the scene of his "Gladiator" triumph as Ridley Scott's Oscar-winning film was screened with a live orchestra at Rome's Colosseum arena on Wednesday (6 JUNE 2018). The Hollywood blockbuster first released 18 years ago was projected onto a 25 meter (82 foot) screen inside Italy's capital city's most famous landmark, as the Italian Cinema Orchestra played Hans Zimmer's film score live and in sync with the film. Crowe, who starred as General Maximus Decimus Meridius, said the event would be bringing back a lot of memories. "I'm really looking forward to it," the 54-year-old actor said. "I haven't actually seen the film since 2000 so it's going to be one of those funny situations where probably the vast majority of people in there tonight know the film way better than I do. So it's going to be interesting. It's going to bring back a lot of memories and I would guess it's going to be a very emotional experience because you know we put a lot into it when we made it and that's why I don't watch my films because otherwise like Pavlov's dog I go through the motions of it so I'm looking forward to it." Crowe joined some 350 guests at the charity event, which featured an orchestra of more than 200 musicians and choir, which performed along with Australian singer Lisa Gerrard, who won the Golden Globe for the title song ''Now We Are Free." "Ridley was joking with me a couple of months ago, he said do you realize that somewhere in the world every night of the week at prime time 'Gladiator' is still playing on TV. I'm really looking forward to it, there are so many little details I've forgotten about, relationships stuff and everything, and I'm going to rediscover why it's touched people's hearts I suppose." said Crowe on the red carpet before the event. This time, Crowe wasn't there to avenge the murder of his family and emperor, but to support charities including the "End Polio Now" campaign, the Polio eradication program promoted by Rotary International, the Bill and Melinda Gates Foundation, World Health Organization, UNICEF and US Centers for Disease Control and Prevention. The 30-year campaign has already raised $1.7 billion (USD) to vaccinate children across the globe, and the aim now is to raise an additional $450 million in three years. Gladiator Live was also raising money for a new lift for disabled people at the Colosseum, which will cost 200,000 euros and be delivered by June 2019. Guests also include former AS Roma football team captain Francesco Totti, who gave Crowe a Roma shirt, saying "He's no doubt a big Roma fan." Crowe jokingly replied, "Lazio" (Rome's rival football club) and Totti said "No, Lazio no, I'll take it back again then! It's a pleasure though for AS Roma to give you this shirt, I hope you like it, it's a large, size XXL." The cine-concert will be repeated twice at Rome's ancient chariot-racing Circus Maximus stadium on June 8 and 9.

Hawaii lava evacuees grow weary as uncertainty drags on
 
07:43
(20 May 2018) Ed Arends grabbed what he could in the night and fled his five-acre property with lava oozing from a crack in his neighbourhood on Hawaii's Big Island. That was more than two weeks ago. He hasn't been able to stay at his house since. As uncertainty drags on over what the Kilauea volcano will do next, those who were forced to leave their homes weeks ago are growing weary. More than 300 people were staying at three different shelters as of Saturday, Hawaii County mayor's spokeswoman Janet Snyder said. Some 2,000 people who live in the Leilani Estates neighbourhood, including Arends, and nearby areas were still evacuated after a lava fissure opened on 3 May. Officials ordered more people to evacuate on Saturday when lava crossed a highway and flowed into the ocean, creating new health hazards. Lava has consumed more than 40 buildings. Those who live in the remote, rural Puna district on the slopes of the Kilauea volcano know the lava risks. Leilani Estates sits in a zone that the US Geological Survey deems to have the highest risk of a lava flow. Residents are allowed to return during the day to check on their homes. Some 25 miles (40 kilometres) away at the summit, there are intermittent explosions that send ash wafting over communities. It's not known whether lava flows will keep advancing or stop, and new flows are likely. Don Waguespack, who co-owns Cajun Paradise Farms down a hill from where fissures have opened, evacuated to a small hotel room on the opposite side of the island. Waguespack returned, relieved to find his home on his 10-acre property still standing. Arends and his brother Mike Arends, who also evacuated from Leilani Estates, were grateful their houses were still safe.

Nigerian president on state visit to Morocco
 
02:16
(11 Jun 2018) LEADIN: The president of Nigeria is on a state visit to Morocco. Muhammadu Buhari and King Mohammed VI have witnessed the signing of several agreements during the trip. STORYLINE: To a welcoming fanfare, a Mercedes pulls up at the Royal Palace in Rabat. King Mohammed VI emerges with his guest, Nigeria's President Muhammadu Buhari. Buhari is in Morocco for a two-day state visit. The two leaders witness signing ceremonies for deals which have been agreed between their countries.. That includes a deal on the next phase of a gas pipeline that's being heavily criticised by national and international organisations for climatic and monetary shortcomings. The pipeline would be an extension of the West African Gas Pipeline (GOA) which links Nigeria to Ghana through Benin and Togo - stretching 5,660 kilometres (3,517 miles) and taking 25 years to be constructed. Intended to serve a total of 12 African countries and about 300 million consumers, its budget is estimated at 20 billion US dollars but opposition associations say the project will cost a lot more and would be a debt burden for the countries involved. In 2016, 85 percent of Morocco's foreign direct investment was in Africa, according to the African Development Bank. Buhari is leaving Morocco on the evening of Monday 11 June.

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.

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.

Achilles the cat to attempt to predict results of World Cup matches in Russia
 
05:18
(11 Jun 2018) Achilles, a resident cat of the world's famous Hermitage Museum in St. Petersburg, has been officially chosen as an oracle for the upcoming football FIFA World Cup. The white, blue-eyed cat will be attempting to predict the winners by choosing between two bowls of food where flags of each competing team are attached. During the FIFA Confederations Cup that Russia hosted in 2017, Achilles reportedly proved himself to be a pretty decent oracle, correctly predicting the outcome of three of the four matches. Currently, Achilles is said to be undergoing intense training in "intuition skills" at the Cats Republic, a cafe which is part of the Cats Museum. He has also been put on a strict diet to get in a shape for the World Cup. Achilles was chosen from dozens of cats that inhabit the basement of Hermitage Museum. According to Maria Haltunen, press secretary of Hermitage Cats, Achilles is deaf and also has a birth defect, but this is compensated with good intuition.   "We considered, and it turned out to be right, that when you lack something it is compensated by something else. That's why he was a very good oracle", Haltunen said. The Hermitage is currently home to some 50 cats which live in the museum's cellars and catch mice. Cats were introduced to the Hermitage, then the imperial Winter Palace, by Peter the Great in the 18th century. Catherine the Great officially made the cats guards of the royal picture gallery.

Cyril Ramaphosa leaves parliament as Zuma's exit nears
 
01:37
(7 Feb 2018) South African President Jacob Zuma's exit from power because of scandals appeared to be getting closer on Wednesday, as his deputy, who is expected to replace him, held transition talks with the president. Deputy President Cyril Ramaphosa acknowledged a lot of speculation about the status of the president, but said he and Zuma would finish their discussions and report in the coming days to the ruling African National Congress party and the population of one of Africa's biggest economies. The announcement followed several disputed reports that reflected a growing mood of uncertainty over the protracted wait for a resolution to the country's leadership crisis. Zuma's office described a social media report that Russian President Vladimir Putin was going to visit the country this week as "fake" news. It also denied allegations by opponents that he was preparing to fire Ramaphosa. Zuma has been embroiled in scandals for years, paying back some state money following multi-million-dollar upgrades to his private home, being criticized for his association with the Gupta business family accused of looting state enterprises and influencing Cabinet ministers for their own benefit, and now facing the possible reinstatement of corruption charges tied to an arms deal two decades ago. Zuma and the Guptas deny any wrongdoing. Zuma's second five-year term is scheduled to end with elections in 2019, but many ruling party members want Ramaphosa to take over as soon as possible so that the party can try to recover the trust of voters alienated by the president's scandals.

Drone footage shows destruction in Aleppo and Daraya
 
03:19
(26 Feb 2018) With western countries and oil-rich Gulf states unwilling to pour money into war-torn Syria as long as President Bashar Assad is in power, reconstruction could turn out to be a mission impossible. Syrians hope that their allies, including China, Russia and Iran, will help them rise from the ashes. Seven years of war, airstrikes and barrel bombs have left entire cities and infrastructure a crumpled, decimated landscape of flattened buildings and rubble. The question of who will rebuild the country has become part of the tug of war between Assad and his opponents. The government says it does need the international community, and although it does not have the funds or means to lead the process on its own, it has said only those who have stood by Syria would be allowed to participate in its rebuilding. The government's allies, Russia and Iran, are similarly cash-strapped, although it is widely believed the government will reward private companies from allied countries with lucrative rebuilding contracts.

Can't just go into Mexico but they allow these people to come up through Mexico and come into our country.

Welcome to the United States. And these are the laws that we're suffering with these are what this is why you'll see. And the wall we have to build. How about the world where everyone scales the wall. Now we are fixing and building walls now but we need much more money we're doing the job right. We're going to do their job and we may have to close up our country to get this right because we either have a country or we don't. You can't allow people to pour into our country the way they're doing. You just take a look at that mess that's on television right now. It is a total catastrophe and these are the laws passed by Democrats so that we have open borders. They want open borders. We have to have borders. If you don't have borders you don't have a country.

Jada Pinkett Smith praises Jessica Chastain for wage fight

(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."

Uighur Protest Against China Camps
 
03:02
(15 Mar 2018) More than a hundred members of the Uighur Muslim ethnic group held a demonstration outside the United Nations on Thursday to protest a sweeping Chinese surveillance and security campaign that has sent thousands of their people into detention and political indoctrination centers. Most of the protestors live in America and Canada and said they are unable to communicate with relatives in China for fear those relatives will be sent to camps. Uighur are Muslims, many of whom say the land they live on is East Turkestan, but the Chinese government calls the land Xinjiang and those who want to break away are called separatists. Protesters say Uighur are being rounded up by the hundreds of thousands and put in camps where they are taught to abandon Islam, embrace atheism and become patriotic Chinese. They are calling on the United Nations to protect their culture and their practice of religion. Chinese officials say the crackdown is necessary to stamp out a decades-long separatist movement and, more recently, Islamic extremism seeping into the region. Hundreds have died in violent clashes in recent years that the government blames on separatist militants. Allegations of widespread abuse in the centers, including unexplained deaths, have been rife but are almost impossible to confirm, given the extreme level of surveillance and government obstruction of independent reporting trips by foreign media. Associated Press reporters were detained for 11 hours by police in Xinjiang in November while investigating the reported death of a 26-year-old in an indoctrination center.

Massive plume of ash shot from boat; night shots of Kilauea volcano lava glow
 
02:35
(21 May 2018) White plumes of acid and extremely fine shards of glass billowed into the sky over Hawaii on Sunday as molten rock from Kilauea volcano poured into the ocean, creating yet another hazard from an eruption that began more than two weeks ago. Authorities on Sunday warned the public to stay away from the toxic steam cloud, which is formed by a chemical reaction when lava touches seawater. Further upslope, lava continued to gush out of large cracks in the ground that formed in residential neighbourhoods in a rural part of the Big Island. The molten rock formed rivers that bisected forests and farms as it meandered toward the coast. The rate of sulphur dioxide gas shooting from the ground fissures tripled, leading Hawaii County to repeat warnings about air quality. At the volcano's summit, two explosive eruptions unleashed clouds of ash, much of which was carried by winds toward the south-west. Scientists said the steam clouds at the spots where lava entered the ocean were laced with hydrochloric acid and fine glass particles that can irrigate the skin and eyes and cause breathing problems. The lava haze, or "laze," from the plume spread as far as 15 miles (24 kilometres) west of where the lava met the ocean on the Big Island's southern coast. It was just offshore and running parallel to the coast, said US Geological Survey scientist Wendy Stovall. Scientists say they don't know how long the eruption will last.

Malaysian PM Mahathir urges full use of NKorea's willingness to denuclearise
 
03:07
(11 Jun 2018) Malaysian Prime Minister Mahathir Mohamad has urged countries in Southeast Asia and the rest of the world to make full use of North Korea's recent willingness to denuclearise as a way to reduce tension in the region. Speaking at a conference in Tokyo, he urged other countries not to be cynical about North Korea's effort to abandon nuclear weapons while trying to establish better relations with the US. Mahathir also said it was important for developing countries like Malaysia to be part of a broad trade framework to face the challenges of economic giants such as the US and China, especially as the US turns increasingly protectionist. While he said that the countries with emerging economies required certain degrees of protectionism, he questioned whether the same logic should be applied to developed economies, such as the United States. The 92-year-old Mahathir became the world's oldest elected leader this year after a surprise win in the Malaysian election. He returned to power after leaving the prime minister's post in 2003.

Rodman says Kim ready to venture out of North Korea a lot more
 
03:09
(12 Jun 2018) RODMAN SAYS KIM READY TO VENTURE OUT OF NORTH KOREA A LOT MORE Former NBA star Dennis Rodman says that there shouldn't be any negativity stemming from a historic summit between US President Donald Trump and  North Korean leader Kim Jong Un. "it should be all positive, but most things are not so, people just got to sit back and wait and see what's really going to happen in the next couple of months," Rodman told the Associated Press on Tuesday (12 JUNE 2018) in Singapore.   The basketball Hall of Famer struck up an unlikely friendship with Kim over their shared love of basketball and has visited North Korea several times but had no official role in the summit. Rodman said he expects to be going to North Korea soon, "probably September." After the summit with Kim, Trump said the denuclearisation process on the Korean peninsula would be starting "very quickly;" the two developed "a very special bond;" and he "absolutely" would invite Kim to the White House. Kim ignored reporters' shouted questions whether he would make that momentous journey, but Trump later said Kim had accepted the invitation. Rodman said Kim was ready to venture out outside of North Korea, adding "he's going to do some things that is going to surprise people and shock people."

02:26
(10 Jun 2018) RESTRICTION SUMMARY: AP CLIENTS ONLY ASSOCIATED PRESS - AP CLIENTS ONLY Singapore - 10 June 2018 1. Motorcade with North Korean leader Kim Jong Un driving through Orchard Boulevard, crowds lining the streets taking pictures 2. Various of crowd and police 3. SOUNDBITE (English) Carmele Mesa, home helper: "So excited, I didn't think that the President (leader of North Korea) came here already, so flattered to see a President of North Korea." 4. SOUNDBITE (English) Max Hackl, University student: "It was definitely a beautiful sight, I did not expect to see the supreme leader coming by, and I haven't seen (US President Donald) Trump go by yet but I have a feeling with him and his secret service coming by that's going to be a lot more security going on and a lot more roadblocks probably at that point. But definitely an experience that was worth seeing, I'm not going to lie, I definitely took a lot of videos on my phone as well." 5. SOUNDBITE (English) Shawn Ho, Associate Research Fellow, S. Rajaratnam School of International Studies: "It was an amazing sight, I couldn't quite believe that this was really happening - North Korean Chairman Kim Jong Un and his delegation just going by in several vehicles. You know, it was just an incredible sight." 6. Wide of Ho 7. SOUNDBITE (English) Shawn Ho, Associate Research Fellow, S. Rajaratnam School of International Studies: "Definitely the issue of what it means by complete denuclearisation and the second thing is how long do you need to completely denuclearise, if both sides can actually come to an agreement. I think these are the two main issues that will be discussed on 12th June at the summit. But besides that as well, it is really a chance for both of them to meet for the first time - it is a historic moment - the first time a sitting US President has met with a North Korean Chairman, right here in Singapore, so I think just the meeting itself is a very good start of what will be a long process when we talk about denuclearisation." 8. Various of Orchard Boulevard, central shopping area in Singapore, pedestrians STORYLINE: The streets along Singapore's central shopping area Orchard Boulevard were packed with people on Sunday as they gathered to catch a glimpse of North Korean leader Kim Jong Un's motorcade. Kim arrived in Singapore earlier Sunday and met with Prime Minister Lee Hsien Loong ahead of a historic summit with US President Donald Trump. Many watching his motorcade go by expressed their excitement at the experience. Shawn Ho, an  Associate Research Fellow at S. Rajaratnam School of International Studies, called it an "amazing sight". "I couldn't quite believe that this was really happening - North Korean Chairman Kim Jong Un and his delegation just going by in several vehicles. You know, it was just an incredible sight." The summit comes amid huge security precautions on this city-state island =========================================================== 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 Find out more about AP Archive: http://www.aparchive.com/HowWeWork Twitter: https://twitter.com/AP_Archive Facebook: https://www.facebook.com/APArchives Google+: https://plus.google.com/b/102011028589719587178/+APArchive​ Tumblr: https://aparchives.tumblr.com/​​ Instagram: https://www.instagram.com/APNews/ You can license this story through AP Archive: http://www.aparchive.com/metadata/youtube/6805bb4c2d3852095d1b991382cb7f5f

Group of Chinese performers arrive at Pyongyang airport
 
01:58
(13 Apr 2018) A large group of Chinese performers arrived in North Korea on Friday accompanied by Song Tao, head of the Chinese Communist Party International Liaison Department. They were met on the tarmac by Ri Su Yong, former North Korean Foreign Minister and a senior official of the ruling Worker's Party of Korea, as well as Kim Yo Jong, the sister of North Korean leader Kim Jong Un, according to foreign analysts. The Chinese performance group is in Pyongyang to take part in the April Spring Arts Festival, a regular fixture in North Korea. But this year, following Kim Jong Un's visit to China in late March, the two neighbouring countries have taken the opportunity to emphasise a reset of friendly relations after a period of frostiness, with this performance group visit.

Trump: US Fighting To Free Americans in NKorea
 
02:55
(18 Apr 2018) POOL - AP CLIENTS ONLY Palm Beach, Florida - 18 April 2018 1. SOUNDBITE (English) Donald Trump, US President: "The fact is that they do have three prisoners. We have been talking about them, we're negotiating now. We are doing our very best, as you know, they've been there a long time. And it's harsh treatment. We fought very hard to get Otto Warmbier back. And when we came back, he was in very, very bad condition. It was a very sad event. We are likewise fighting very diligently to get the three American citizens back . I think there is a good chance of doing it, we're having very good dialogue. We will keep you informed. But we are in there and we are working very hard on that. We have come a long way with North Korea. We were, as you know, and when I say we, for many years, they've been talking to North Korea and nothing's happened.  This should have been taken care of by past administrations. When they were not nearly so far along, but we put unbelievably powerful sanctions on and many other things.  I want to thank publicly President Xi of China who has done more for us than he's done for any other administration or than any leader of China has done for any president or administration.  He has clogged up the border, as you know. And he has done it very, very powerfully.  He would tell you himself that he never thought he would go to this extent. And I appreciate that very much."   2. Cutaway of press 3. SOUNDBITE (English) Donald Trump, US President: "We've never been in a position like this with that regime, whether it's father, grandfather or son and I hope to have a very successful meeting. If we don't think it's going to be successful, Mark, we won't have it. We won't have it. If I think that it's a meeting that is not going to be fruitful, we're not going to go. If the meeting, when I'm there is not fruitful, I will respectfully leave the meeting and will continue what we're doing or whatever it is that we'll continue, but something will happen. So I like always remaining flexible and we'll remain flexible here. I've gotten it to this point. President Moon of South Korea was very generous when he said if it weren't for Donald Trump, the Olympics would have been a total failure. It was my involvement and the involvement of our great country that made the Olympics a very successful Olympics. If you look at ticket sales prior to what took place with respect to North Korea, it was going to be a big problem and it turned out to be a very successful Olympics. So we've gotten us here and I think we're going to be successful but if for any reason I feel we're not, we end." STORYLINE: President Donald Trump says the U.S. is "fighting very diligently" to win freedom for three Americans detained in North Korea. Trump said Wednesday that he thinks there's a "good chance of doing it" and that "we're having a good dialogue" with the North Koreans. He did not answer directly when asked if he intends to sit down with North Korean leader Kim Jung Un at their proposed summit if the Americans are still being detained. Trump says he hopes to have a successful meeting with Kim, but he'll cancel if he doesn't think it will be successful. The president also says he will "respectfully leave" the meeting after it starts if he feels it won't be fruitful. Trump commented in Florida during a joint news conference with Japanese Prime Minister Shinzo Abe. =========================================================== 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 You can license this story through AP Archive: http://www.aparchive.com/metadata/youtube/70649dd9406d7222441b4b25abf5f6bf Find out more about AP Archive: http://www.aparchive.com/HowWeWork

AP reporter on Stormy Daniels lawyer's claim that Russian money tied to Trump
 
03:49
(9 May 2018) Stormy Daniels' lawyer says he has information showing that President Donald Trump's longtime personal attorney received $500,000 from a company associated with a Russian billionaire within months of paying hush money to the porn star who claims a long-ago affair with Trump. Lawyer Michael Avenatti also said hundreds of thousands of dollars streamed into Trump attorney Michael Cohen's account from companies, including pharmaceutical giant Novartis, AT&T and Korea Aerospace, with U.S. government business interests. Those three companies have confirmed the connection. Avenatti isn't disclosing the source of his information or releasing documentation. But in a seven-page memo, Avenatti details what he says were wire transfers into and out of the account Cohen used to pay Daniels $130,000 in October 2016 to stay silent about her alleged tryst with Trump in 2006. He denies having an affair with Daniels, whose real name is Stephanie Clifford. Financial documents reviewed Tuesday by The Associated Press appeared to back up Avenatti's report. The memo says Viktor Vekselberg, a Russian billionaire, and his cousin "routed" eight payments totaling approximately $500,000 to Cohen's company, Essential Consultants, between January and August 2017. The reason for the payments was not immediately known. Avenatti's memo says the deposits into the account controlled by Cohen were made by Columbus Nova, an American investment company headed by Vekselberg's cousin, Andrew Intrater, and affiliated with the Renova Group, which Vekselberg controls. Andrey Shtorkh, a spokesman for Vekselberg and the Renova Group, said in a statement that "neither Victor Vekselberg nor Renova has ever had any contractual relationship" with Cohen or Essential Consultants. He said questions about a relationship between Columbus Nova and Cohen would have to be answered by Intrater "because Columbus Nova is a company owned and managed by him." Columbus Nova's lawyer, Richard Owens, said in a statement the company is "solely owned and controlled by Americans." He said that after Trump's inauguration in January 2017, the company hired Cohen as a business consultant "regarding potential sources of capital and potential investments in real estate and other ventures," but that it had nothing to do with Vekselberg. Cohen and his lawyer did not immediately respond to requests for comment. Cohen is under investigation by federal prosecutors in New York, but hasn't been charged. At the time of the payments, there was an FBI counterintelligence investigation, which special counsel Robert Mueller took over last May, into Russian election interference and any possible coordination with Trump associates.

UK FM meets French counterpart on Iran, comments on Gaza
 
03:19
(14 May 2018) UK Foreign Secretary Boris Johnson and French Foreign Minister Jean-Yves Le Drian reiterated on Monday their commitment to the Iran nuclear deal, in spite of the US decision to withdraw from the accord. Johnson also expressed sadness about the violence in Gaza, where Israeli soldiers shot and killed at least 52 Palestinians during mass protests along the Gaza border on Monday. "We understand that there are some people who've been provoking that violence, but on the other hand there's got to be restraint in the use of live fire," he said. He also said the UK believes the US are "playing the wrong card at the wrong time" by relocating its embassy to Jerusalem and reiterated his country's commitment to a two-state solution.
