Survivors of the Nazi death camp at Auschwitz in Poland have urged the world not to allow a repeat of the crimes of the holocaust as they marked the 70th anniversary of the camp's liberation by Soviet troops. More than a million people, mainly Jews, were murdered at Auschwitz between 1940 and 1945. Kevin Connolly reports.
Three hundred survivors gathered, many in scarfs made from the blue-and-white stripes of the same prison uniforms they once wore on freezing winter days like today. If Auschwitz is a symbol of the worst that men can inflict, then they are a symbol of the human capacity to endure. The day belongs to the living eyewitnesses to some of the worst history's horror. But they were prayers for the many dead too. They're going in the grave winter sunset.
Rebels in South Sudan have freed the first of several thousand child soldiers who are expected to be released in the coming weeks. The UN children's agency said 280 children, some as young as 11, were handed over in Jonglei state. From there Ed Thomas reports.
Today they are all free. The militia, the Cobra Faction, has signed a peace deal. It means the children can finally put down their weapons. It's a promise child soldiers like Peter depend on.
"How do you feel today? Now you're free."
"No, I'm not afraid."
"You are not afraid."
"I need to become a paster."
Despite the brutality they have the chance to begin it again.
A Spanish judge has charged 10 Roman Catholic priests with child sex abuse in a case that prompted Pope Francis to telephone one of the alleged victims to offer his apologies. The priests are accused of abusing four teenage boys in Granada in southern Spain. Tom Burridge reports.
This case of alleged pedophilia within the Catholic Church in Spain came to light last October when a 24-year-old man went to the police. The allegations centre on events which began 10 years ago when he was a 14-year-old altar boy at a church in the city of Granada. In the court documents which have now been published he claims he was forced to masturbate a priest at the church called Roman Martinez. Pope Francis, who promised a zero tolerance approach to sexual abuse cases in the Catholic Church, launched an investigation into the case back in November.
The authorities in New York have been defending their decision to shut down the city's transport system after what was forecast to be a potentially historic blizzard turned out to be only moderate snow fall. The city's mayor said he'd taken a better-save-than-sorry approach.
