Women Seeking Equality in the Mosque In Turkey (#2942)

Bosnia: Permissive Prisons - In Bosnia, war criminals are jailed in the Bosnian-Croat or in the Serb part of the country, depending on their ethnicity. That makes it impossible to ensure that sentences are carried out properly.

Norway: Utoya Today - Utoya was an idyllic vacation island in a lake 40 kilometers from Oslo, the capital. Then came this summer's horrible massacre. Local residents are still traumatized by what they witnessed.

Greece: Extremist Parties Sense a Chance - An emergency coalition of the conservatives and the socialists is set to govern Greece until new elections in February. The rightwing nationalist LAOS Party wants to profit from the crisis.

Germany: The Mediators - The rioters in Britain showed no solidarity with their own neighborhoods, destroying everything equally ruthlessly. In Bremen, parents are now going on nocturnal patrol.

Turkey: Women Want Equality in the Mosque - Up to now in Turkey, women entering mosques had to use side entrances and sit in dimly lit corners in galleries. The institution in Ankara known as the Presidency of Religious Affairs now wants to end this discrimination. [26 minutes] Closed Captioning
