Horan Christ Church has caused untold pain. It's also bringing people together. Steve McDonald reporting from Sydney letting this is obviously a very difficult area. I wonder what you take out of what you heard from Steven so many different viewpoints within what three and a half minutes radio. And that was a very very balanced report by Stephen I think that a lot of those attitudes. Certainly do come across in our flights in everyday life in a strategy. And I would say that Australia is not a racist country. Myron I mean, I've got dark skin. I was adopted as a baby I'm one of eight children five a wise at three of us have skin. I think I've ever suffered racist. And I wouldn't even call it suffer. I laughed at it. I think I got one racist comedy my whole life. Now, that's not to say, my older brother and sister didn't get that did. But by and large Australia rubs long, pretty well. We're very proud of multicultural history. But what do need to remember strategy is also very young country where modern but young country, and I think that we've always had an relationship like most countries to accepting lobbed lodge waves of immigration. I it was what we used to call rice racially disparagingly walks as in people from Europe at now, that's a term of demons then it was eighteen immigration Vietnamese Japanese Chinese Indians now coming largely they are accepted in the community.

Muslims more on that doubt little later on in the day. You're listening to weekend from the BBC World Service. Twenty six minutes past the hour.

In that section article fourteen was fourteen one point one the greatest number of points obtained in clashes between the two sides would go through to the next stage. So it was no maybe a who progressed through to the final is that beaten Mozambican both matches between the two teams earlier in qualifying those a great reaction full Barundi. He reached the Africa Cup of nations finals for the first time in history that was all after a one one draw with coupon. The African sports broadcaster MO alley called it an amazing achievement for both club and for country Barundi has been going through some problems over the past few years political address time the Nations Cup comes around people.
