Introducing Pastor Steven from Rwanda:

Pastor Steven

Pastor Steven Turikunkiko has set up a community in Rwanda for victims of the genocide. 160 widows & teenagers & 80 younger children live with him; farming, sharing their lives and caring for those dying from AIDS. The community subsists on less than $1 per person per day.

At enormous personal sacrifice, Pastor Steven and his wife have also adopted 20 orphans - who live with them and their 2 other children.

Teenage pirate on trial

Previous | Next

US flagA Somali teenager has become the first pirate to be put on trial in the United States for 100 years. He arrived in court in handcuffs with a chain around his waist to answer charges on piracy and hostage-taking.

There is some confusion about his name and age. It is thought that he is called Abdiwali Abdiqadir Muse and that he is 18 years old. His parents in Somalia, though, have said that he is ony 16 and should not face trial. They have asked to come and be with him throughout his trial, asking for clemency from Barack Obama, stating that their son was lured by pirates with the promise of money and that he didn't know what he was getting himself into...

His lawyer has suggested that his arrest may have been illegal because he had come aboard the USS Bainbridge under a flag of truce to negotiate.
