She wants to know what's happened to his body, and she wants to see those who she considers accountable for this brought to justice. The Saudis, however, are not going to extradite anybody. They've said they've already held their own trial, which finished in December. It was held behind closed doors and neither of the two chief suspects as Faras, the international intelligence community concerned we're actually convicted. The French

Jim Mattis, Defense Secretary, Resigns in Rebuke of Trump’s Worldview

"Nomination for the joint. Chiefs of staff job at being vetoed. Effectively. He'd been frozen. Out. But it seems like yesterday's surprising decision from the president to withdraw the remaining troops in Syria. Really was the final straw for him. Although he hasn't directly stated that in his letter. But this is a strongly worded resignation letter that talks about America's strength through a comprehensive system of global alliances and partnerships, the importance of maintaining international relationships and respecting allies. And I think it's clear from this letter that James Mattis feels that the president Donald Trump's America first foreign policy rolling back on some international agreements, criticizing international organizations and putting in doubt some of those relationships with allies with something he just wasn't willing to tolerate any longer. He's a former military man, a Marine Corps general who spent his career working through these coalitions internationally to secure America's influence in the world. He obviously feels that. He can no longer stand by the president with that. And what has President Trump said about General Mattis? This decision while he the president tweeted first announcing the gym Mattis would be retiring he said at the end of February and thanking him for his service. So no criticism from the president, but he has called into question Jim Mattis's judgment before. And I think we could see the relationship deteriorating. Now, the president has said that he's looking for a replacement and expects to make an announcement next week of who will take over a secretary of defense. But he said something similar when his chief of staff left. Also when he was looking for a new attorney general we have acting positions filling both of those roles at the minute. So this is another job at the top of the administration that needs to be found. Someone new to take on it looks like it's getting increasingly difficult for the president to find the right people to surround him. And Jim Mattis has made clear in his letter that he simply couldn't carry on working for someone whose views he wasn't that closely aligned with any longer. And meanwhile politicians are scrambling. Travolta, partial federal government shutdown tells more about this. Yes, there is legislative deadlock in the United States. They have to approve a new budget effectively to fund government services over the next few months. Donald Trump says he won't approve a budget that doesn't include money for his wall. The Senate will not approve money for the wall. It looks like that's going to be a sticking point. And it looks like we are going to have a government shutdown from tomorrow night. Ten johnson. The head of chillers. Police force has been told to stand down by presidents have a Pieta amid growing pressure over the death of an indigenous man five weeks ago. Gummy look at the Janka. The grandson of Emma Pooja indigenous leader was shot in the head as he drove a tractor in the southern province of out Ganea. I asked her America's editor Leonardo Russia for the background to the case Camila cutter. Janka was a was a young man living in the southern province of federal Canea his pool change agents, and he was driving a tractor. When he was released was. Carrying out an operation there against a local gang of car thieves and accidentally shot in the head and died instantly. But because of all the history there is in the area with them approaching data fighting for the rise. They complain against the presence of farmers and big companies a campaign that's been going on for for many many years that just sparked protests across the country with many people saying this is enough. The police has made a mistake here. And why is the police chief being targeted? What happened is initially. The police said they were acting in self defense which implied that Tammy look at the young had any moment, which he didn't. And then they said they didn't have any footage of the Gulf the incident, but the police there the carabineers they normally go with body cams body cameras on them and all the pictures in the Chilean media showed there were policemen with cameras and earlier this week to visas were published. Showing how the operation was carried out how it developed in proving that this man was killed didn't have he was an armed. He was holding a gun. So that created a big problem for presence in yet? Who was in a way supporting the police in this case, but he's changed position. Typically, he changed. He was very critical. He said a small group of policemen had betrayed designed the police, and they they will be excluded. But he didn't refer specifically to the police chief in those terms he said, they should go because the police chief and ten all the commanders because it's time for new leadership. So that happened under there is under the guidance, and they shouldn't be happening and that will see now what what's going to happen. But it's a militarized police in Chile the many accounts in many critics of much criticism about the police held riot police act and the indigenous the perception of agents and approaches that they are unfairly targeted Russia. Now Neil has some other stories from our news desk lawmakers in Denmark have approved plans to banish foreign criminals to a tiny offshore island. The change would affect to a hundred people who have completed their sentences, but cannot be sent home because they would be at risk of torture or execution in their countries under the plan, the released former criminals would be allowed to leave the island during the day. But it needs to report their whereabouts to police and returned Lind home every night. Britain's Jeep of defense staffs are gen generals. Sir. Nncholas Carter has said he believes the US remains committed to the international mission in Afghanistan reports overnight suggest the Trump administration is considering plans for a significant drawdown of forces in the country the general described the current security situation in Afghanistan is fragile. Here's our security correspondent, Frank Gardner, Syria and Afganistan are two very different missions said general nNcholas. Carter. He admitted that Afghan security forces were suffering worryingly, high casualties from the ongoing insurgency, but said there were signs some Taliban were growing weary of fighting. And I wanted peace. Donald Carter said British lives have been lost in vain enough ghanistan. The west could not afford to take its attention of the presence of ISIS them. He blamed a lack of education and opportunity for the group having gained a foothold. There was no evidence that he said if any attacks being planned on the west from Afghanistan. The government of president macro and FRANZ has bowed to police demands for a salary increase and payment for decades of unpaid overtime after officers staged nationwide protests. The deal comes after police were deployed in large numbers to try and control five weekends of often, violent demonstrations by yellow vest activists. Thanks, neil. A major search is underway at the UK second busiest airport for the operators of one or more drones which have forced the authorities to ground hundreds of flights since the devices first appeared on Wednesday evening at London's Gatwick airport one hundred and twenty thousand passengers have been left stranded authorities at the airport say they're now attempting to reintroduce a limited number of flights over the coming hours. The passengers are still being advised to check with their airline before travelling to the airport. Our correspondent chichi Zindel who's at Gatwick airport gave us this update is festival trying to actually spot the drone in enough time. To disarm think about that our police here who are frantically searching for the straight twenty police units from different police as a trying to locate the drone the public being is quite a large airfield every time it goes up. It disappears Justice quickly. They still don't the make all the models. So they can't use the technology that has been pulled into a number of trains that means that they can remotely disable it from where this operating it. And therefore, they call finds the person he's operating it. So this is the main and a huge problem to the police they had called in the army and gains their assistance to try and locate it, they say there's been continued sighting of Adrian they said so far they have had fifty reports of Jane sightings in and around the airfield Gatwick says the runway remains closed because of they sightings passengers due to travel to check the status with our airlines, and they said, no. Not come to get weak airports unless that flight has been confirmed. Gatewaycc have also called it additional staff across the apple to try and help people that had been stranded hair, and they stopped themselves.

"Windows, an architecture and tiny little alleyways and streets, really Quainton beautiful. But it was poised to be the first world capital. It was actually going to run out of water. The country is. Incredibly poor. It's polluted, you know, that you coming to a village or ton from miles away because the trees appear to all be in bloom, but they're not blooms the plastic bags. It's just parts of the country is just one big dumpster. Plus it littered with mines. That said Yemen is amongst the most hospitable, and kindest and generous people in the world. They didn't have what's happened to them. We're also talking about a cholera epidemic. That is staggering. And we're talking about inaccessibility to healthcare to any kind of medical health. Care and the food. I mean before when when you heard. Hussein talking about trying to send nutrition they're reading about babies who are so malnourished that they can't even cry. I mean again and get any energy to cry and children are who were born at the start of the war have lived through this. We're talking about maybe fourteen air raids per day, and the average again the mind can't even get around. It. You got eight million children are just cut off from any regular access to basic, water or sanitation or hygiene. It's it's just unbelievable as humanitarian crises. Let's address these because this is really important. The the US has called on Saudi Arabia and its coalition which consists of about nine different countries. It's called on them to stop as strikes on civilian populated areas. When I say called on that, basically means you've got to stop it. And that's important. I've been into something called the kale the coalition air operations center. And it's pretty chilling up there on a board is the arrivals board of the next incoming flights. And it'll say Mashonaland Egypt plane designated f sixteen then there'll be a column called kill box and within that kill box grids where they can release their ordnance. And a lot of that is going wrong is hitting the wrong targets funerals. Weddings, hospitals convoys of ambulances. It's it's horrendous. So that needs to stop. And heading medical centers and medical facilities to. Yeah. The new saints. The both sides committed atrocities here the Hutus of targeted civilian areas deliberately they have co cited medical facilities along with armaments. The the problem with the food supply comes down primarily to the borders and specifically to the port of her data, which is effectively blockade or partially blockaded by the Saudi led coalition. Why because they say the Iranians are smuggling weapons the Iranians deny that I've asked them personally they've denied that they are sending weapons, but there is proof that some weapons of gone through. But the Saudi say if we allowed every ship to come in unsearched unchecked, then Iran, which is simply rearm the Hutus perpetuate the fight this, of course, has denied by them. And by the Hutus, but that's the reason why they do it. I think the the humanitarian suffering is so bad in Yemen that most people in the industry would say Saudi Arabia can say whatever it likes her data. Port is got to open up to mass shipment of food. Frank gardner. Again, is BBC security correspondent Hussein most in here in studio is co-founder Berkeley base Yemen relief project. A lot of congressional representatives Hussein are really concerned about him. Are you getting to them? We are. We are in were making those both parties. Yeah. Absolutely. But the the real issue is it has to be more than that. It has to be multidimensional. It just can't be you know, it has to be the four four five. Our thoughts to make this change is not gonna be a phone call. We have to elect certain officials that are going to make those decisions that are going to support things like blocking or stopping the the the the bombing of Yemen subbing weapon flow and getting eighth while we've got a lot of callers who want to join us. Let me get to some of them Paul. You're on morning. Morning. Thank you for the program and elaborating on the terrible situation. To try to set the record straight on Trump's claims about all the jobs that are created which are arms sales to Saudi Arabia off sale. The United States. Guess what are your guests say that there are jobs that are at stake? Perhaps, you know. Immorality of the art sale. Chris Hayes MSNBC program all in a very scholarly. And well, researched well-sited actually say how many have actually created by our off still in Saudi Arabia after all said and done. It wasn't trumps one million jobs. It was more like about twenty thousand new jobs at about one hundred eighty thousand ongoing. President does have his problems inflating numbers wonder, thank you for the question. Focuses important one on this Frank Gardner amino. What do we know we certainly know there's a lot of money in those arms. What about jobs? I didn't know the exact statistics. I'm sure you're caller is right there that that figures have been exaggerated, but this relationship the reason why the west is so embarrassed by this Khashoggi hit and by the ongoing tragedy of Yemen is that it's got itself into bed with a strategic partner that is is doing terrible things in the Middle East. But they they they think in Washington and London that they need that strategic against Iran because they look at Iranian what they call a rainy and expansionism prior to two thousand three when the US led invasion of Iraq toppled, Saddam Hussein's. Remember him in Iraq that his regime the was a bulwark against Iran. In other words, Iraq was this great blocker, it stopped Iran, really pushing westwards what happened with that invasion, and the often Martha's that tiptop the entire chessboard of Middle East power politics. And the result is that Iranian proxy militias are everywhere in Syria. In Lebanon in Iraq. They've got contacts with the Hutus in Yemen. I think the Iranian role in Yemen is exaggerated. But there's no question that. In iraq. Iran now has enormous influence and Iran is the big rival to Saudi Arabia. These are the two giants in that region. They can't stand each other the two regimes. So there is since the Islamic revolution in Iran in nineteen seventy nine the western consider that Iran is if not an adversary certainly not a country that it considers to be friendly frames. I think the United States Saudi Arabia has its ally against Iran. And I also think that this conflict is a kind of. As a referring from your good analysis is one between Sunnis and Shia and let me get some more callers here. Patrick is our next caller Patrick. Join us. Thanks for taking my call. You know, I really urge. Listeners. The audience, and he focused. Mind yourselves. This is just another replay of history likely had years ago. I'm actually spent a year Nicaragua. And I almost just replaced names. And it sounds like the Legos of international conflict Justice, phony back then. Tony east-west conflict of communism. Now, it's replaced with this phony. Back. Patrick, not a great connection. And I think we get your point. And I thank you for it. I'm gonna let it stand is an editorial comment and get two more callers. Let me go to Dan next, Dan. Thanks for waiting. You're on the air. Thank you for my call. I think that if is an extension of some of the fallout from the Iraq war something that we're not hearing much about. And also my question is how come we're not hearing about this until now I pay attention to the news. I new stuff was going on in Yemen. I knew was getting worse. But then all of a sudden we have three million malnourished children. Where's the media? And thank you for this show too. You know, Kurt. Thank you for the call. And let me go to you Hussein Louis Anderson oh relief organizations like yours have been trying to make contact with the media of obstacles or impediments. I mean, it's not easy. It's it's not a popular topic that it seems like, you know, when it comes to Yemen. It's it's easy for us. Except the bombing of these types of people in that space because it does no push. They used to have the people who are a lot of children, though, is a real human beings that we should put more attention to the fact that it's going under the radar is not surprising. And it sat word for all. You know, that that relate to we should it should be all of us relating to this. It should be getting more attention on the world's on the world stage in him. Yeah. Frank gardner. Go ahead. One of the reasons is that Yemen is an incredibly difficult and dangerous country for journalists to get into the reason al-qaeda presence said is a small ISIS presence. But the main problem is that the Saudi led coalition is simply not letting in most journalists it's very difficult to get in there. We've had some people in all a guarantee one of our correspondents has just been in there and done some very brave reporting from from from from parts of Yemen. What is stake here? Let's just have a quick look water the coalition. What are they actually trying to achieve? They're trying to reverse the illegal takeover by the Hutus in two thousand fourteen Yemen had something called him national dialogue. They almost everybody. How do you want to be ruled? How can we better see the way this country is run because it was run very corruptly by the previous president who paid off one group against another. And that was successful that dialogue. But then the hood is decided they working too much take over the capital, and they used the sour grapes. If. I can use that word the previous president. I lived Dallas. He was kicked up by the Arab spring. But he was so conceited that he thought Yemen copy room without me. And so he teamed up with the who he put his troops at that disposal. An allied them to take over half the country. So what the Saudis and their allies have been trying to do ineffectively has been to reverse that takeover to reestablish the UN recognized legitimate government of Yemen. They've done it in such a brutal. Ham fisted way that it's ended up not achieving anything. But killing an awful lot of people and wrecking the country, the brutality in the ham-fisted in a fascinating way reverberates through the Kosovo g killing and yet that was just one individual. We have so many people suffering by essentially, what you've I think correctly described as the methods of Saudi Arabia under its present leadership at this point one can just hope that things will take a different turn. There is at least as Frank Gardner pointed out some action being taken by the United Nations, and by the Brits, and the United States diplomats and one can cross one's fingers and hope that there will be a change. Let me thank you. Frank Gardner for joining us through the segment. Good to have you with us. Thank you can't Frank Gardner against BBC security correspondent and thank you Hussein Mossend. Good to have you with us and continued success. I hope in getting this relief over to your own country. I appreciate it. Thanks. And thank you our listeners for being with us. Us for this.

"K Q E D. It's now six minutes past ten. Welcome to forum. I'm Michael Krasny. On Tuesday, the United States and Britain called for a complete ceasefire in the civil war and for the United Nations led peace talks to start next month. Three years into the war. The situation in Yemen is being deemed the worst made manmade humanitarian crisis in history. Unicef reports that eighty percent of all children in the country are now in need of humanitarian aid. And the United Nations has found that half of the country is at risk of famine. We're going to get the latest on the conflict, and we're joined here in studio by Hussein motion who is co founder of Berkeley based Yemen relief project. Welcome to the program. Thanks for having me. Good to have you. And we also want to welcome Frank Gardner whose BBC security correspondent get the update from him. Good to have you with us. Frank gardner. Welcome to the program. Thanks very much. The war is actually more than three years long. Frank Gardner, and let me go to you on just a kind of brief sense of what's at stake here. And what the nature of the war is it's kind of murky to many people, it's really a civil war against the Saudis and their Amerada allies to a great extent. But what's being fought here, and what's at stake? Sure. Okay. Just very briefly just micro tensions. I being in Yemen since nineteen eighty five, and I was there this year, it is such a tragedy. This is the biggest humanitarian tragedy in the world at the moment. I'm what's at stake, really is power politics. But of course, is the lives of Yemenis himselves. The war started really you can trace it back to September twenty fourteen when a small tribal group in the north of Yemen called the hoochies marched on on the capital teamed up with the ousted former president who was kicked off by the Arab spring guy called and he put his own troops at their disposal, and they took over the capital and took a pretty much most of the populated areas of the country and the Saudis said, whoa, whoa. Hang on a second. These people are allied to Iran arch rivals in the Middle East. We can't have this law southern border and in March twenty fifteen under the direction of Saudi Crown prince, Mohammad bin slow, mom NBS. They started an air campaign campaign. There was no fighting in the air. It was all bumming by the Saudi led coalition, and I went down there at the time. I went to see the Saudis, and they were very confident they thought they could bomb the Hutus. Back to the negotiating table that hasn't happened four years on. Plus, the Hutus are still dug in the capital they've still got her day to the main port and they've got most of the populated areas. It's a stalemate in which thousands of died. Millions have been displaced the was saying ceasefire, of course, everybody wants a ceasefire, but the Saudis an Emirati allies who by the way, big US allies, most to them a not going to settle for situation. That leaves what they see as their Iranian proxies in control of the country on that borders. Well, the hoodies are firing missiles in Saudi Arabia, but many people are dying because of what's coming from Saudi Arabia into Yemen. And a lot of those arms are unfortunately being supplied by the United States. There is also at this point. However, a juncture that we're at there's talk of the United States in Britain calling for a complete ceasefire in the United Nations leading peace talks that would start next month. Are we actually seeing some real movement here? We are. Yes. Michael. I was with General Mattis your sector state for defense in Bahrain Manama dialogue loss weekend, and even some days four days before he and Mike Pompeo gave their announcement. He said very clearly the time for the war to stop is. Now, basically, the US is calling time on this war. They know that Saudi Arabia cannot continue to prosecute this war without massive military assistance from the US, enter or less extent Britain and France, the US provides the planes. They munitions the bums the hardware the intelligence and and the refueling services as well. Exactly. Yes. That's what I was looking for. So the new good signal will find they'll just switch to Russia and China, they couldn't prosecute. But that that the war has been a disaster, particularly Yemen is, but it's also not been successful for Saudi because they haven't won it and every day that the you stay in control of those areas. It's a it's a victory for them, basically. So the US can see that this isn't going anywhere. It's an increasingly unpopular war congress suppressing for cells to stop to Saudi President Trump doesn't want that. Because it's getting it means a lot of jobs at stake, a strategic ally, the UK will simply follow. I think whatever the US lead is on this. So yeah, the pressure is on and it's partly because of the hustle Mata. I was just gonna ask you about that that killing has certainly played into the calculus of this in terms of possibly moving forward. You mentioned Mohammed bin Solomon NBS is made people's minds behind that murderer kashogi. It's not proven. But certainly it's what a lot of people believe, and it's put the Saudi leadership on the back foot. They now know that they are in the dock as far as western opinion is concerned, and despite the United the fact they've changed their narrative several times as to what was behind it. I saying that now he he left the consulate. He we've no idea where he is. Then he was. Held in a fistfight or some nonsense. They keep changing the narrative, so. The whether they know will not they are very much in the DACA public opinion this so the need to listen to what the US and Britain is saying every Yemen because they can't continue this war without that cooperation from the west Frank Gardner is BBC security correspondent, we should mention in fact in terms of the United Nations that about a third of the aid. That's going to Yemen. Nine hundred thirty million dollars comes from Saudi Arabia. They have asked for public relations and all kinds of credit for the money that is being sent over to Yemen. And there's a lot of attempt to get aid to people because it is such a staggering and dreadful beyond belief humanitarian crisis Hussein Morrison is with us again, he's cofounder the Berkeley based Yemen relief project, you're working your group is working to try to get Manitoba aid over their food and helping orphans and so forth. Are you getting through? Absolutely. Yes. So it's a little bit about our organization. We're based out of Berkeley, we're just a group of professionals and students came together with a common question of what what can we do in Yemen? And how can we help? We we see the news feeds on Facebook and Instagram of the poverty, and the destruction. And we'd stray wanted to find a vehicle to be able to connect the people in in the us in our areas, and also provides some sort of assistance in the so you're mainly using social media for this mainly social more advocacy, and then also, you know, making that connection of support for the many peoples that are suffering today. We'll give us a picture of what you know about the suffering. I know you were there a year ago and things have just continue to get steadily. Worse. You look at the statistics in their mind boggling, you can get your mind around them thinking about the individual suffering of children, particularly you really can't. I mean, the one of the things I realized when I got to Yemen was. This was. Profoundly. They couldn't couldn't wrap it around my head how terrible and how much destruction and much poverty. People begging for food baking, if they're not begging. I mean, it takes a certain type of person to beg for food. But also they're describing around in. Dumpsters. And looking to ISA. It's it's it's horrible there. As far as what what the situation has caused the people of Yemen to experience, but as far as an organization, we we attempted to to make that connection with people in Yemen. And we actually sent a container of now nutrition therapy. Packages that helped people that are getting through they got through they got through. Eventually they got through it took it took a little bit of time. But you just. It's actually a testament to when we put that energy out there. We can make a little difference in hopefully that gets repeated across the country. Let me play our listeners this when it goes up to ten thirty questions about the crisis in Yemen and about the politics of the civil war that's going on in Yemen. And may indeed wanna comment and join us with your thoughts with your questions as we continue discussion with Frank Gardner, the BBC and Hussein.

I really feel like obviously since we've gotten healthy it's cut into some of his playing time. But there's no doubt my mind. Play a big role for us down the stretch and hopefully on the play offs and any came up huge tonight for as they get to give us a lead there, then what a plane center. Pitching came together. One Ron we'll take that. Right. Yeah. It was a little different. Holder getting gets himself out of a jam there in the first inning uncharacteristic where he walks couple of guys, you know, he's usually so good at town zone. The kids out of that. And then Tarpley's terrific sunny was good. And then and then the guy's just rolled it out. Worked out pretty well tonight. So. A good all around effort by obviously a lot guys on the pitching staff. Does it give you anything think about now that you've replicate this exactly for awhile our game playoff game? But does it give you something to think about? Tonight. Look, we feel like our Penn is really deep with a lot of guys that you would consider high leverage guys. So we feel like when we're at our best. You know, when we're arrested we can shorten the game on you. With the guys we we can run out of that bullpen, so. You know, there's there's probably going to be playoff games. You know, where you do see a starter that goes short, and we can kinda roll out our guys in peace. And and that's definitely one of the formulas for us to be successful. Did you have that lineup like that heading into the game or were you constantly adjusting as the game was going on? We tried to. We kind of envisioned it playing out like that. You know, you go through things, and it doesn't always work to plan. We we did consider before the game. We're maybe sunny first and then shave Tarpley for maybe the next round through. But we figured you know, once it was starting with the left you the next inning. We felt like it was a good lane. Dr player and he delivered. And then sunny was able to give us too strong innings as well. And then we felt like if if we could get you know, the game closer or lead into that fifth inning. We felt like we could roll our guys out.

Our main effort us lawn as there is coca and cocaine does groups will have. Support to continue their fight against them, okra see, and to continue the fight against civilian population. Just off the Caribbean coast henna. The navy took me off shore to shaming how the cartels operate. They point to nearby island. It looks long, low and sparsely inhabited. The Colombian navy. Tell me that this island just outside Hannah. Hoban is crucial to the cartels getting cocaine out of the country. They use the local population to transferred by night often slinging it on the container ships as they move out into the open water. It's a massive international container terminal culkin's routinely searched the sniffer dogs. Some policemen's trustee metal probes into sex could beans to check for hidden contraband. The coastguard come onto Rian. Qantas is one of those trying to intercept the smugglers in foreign Marissa inside that board to to get the information about the location of the containers and destination. Sunday mass in tomorrow, right down at the other end of Columbia on the Pacific coast, it's a poor economically, neglected part of the country, and there's a full congregation. This is also the epicenter of the drugs tied and the priest, father anew for Meena has been imploring the government to beef up security this summer. It has flooding this coca growing region with twelve thousand troops fell. The Meena doesn't think it'll lost black ZUM militar it ahead theory action. It only temporary. It stops and then the murders return. As soon as the military dropped their guard little, the people start to fight. Again, it's it can very solution. We need socially. Polit from Columbia by Frank Gardner next to an extraordinary story from Japan where a medical school has been accused of changing test results to reduce the number of women. It accepts a Japanese newspaper said, the practice began at Tokyo Medical University in twenty eleven of the number of successful female applicants increased to about forty percent identity. How small Tokyo correspondent Rupert, Wingfield Hayes. This is an investigation done by large Japanese daily newspaper, and they have sources inside the university who they say have hold them that starting in two thousand ten, eleven the universities entrance exam was manipulated deliberately to reduce the schools of female applicants. So apparently across the board, female applicants test scores were knocked down by between ten and twenty percent so that the number of women entering the university would never exceed thirty percent of the student body. And why would it want to do that? When. Seeming to do well at the exams. Again, this is a coding to Sosa's inside the university administration. This was done because there was a feeling in the university administration that female medical students often do did not go on to practice medicine. All those that did often dropped out offer a few years when they got married when they started a family. And so they felt like they were not good long-term prospect. Now I should add that this is a private university and it supplies doctors to a number of affiliate hospitals. And so the logic of this, if you like, if there is a logic to it is that they needed to keep the the pipeline of reliable doctors going to these hospitals going. And that's why they wanted to keep majority of men in the university..
