On the first anniversary of the Maspero massacre, the relatives of the dead, who were either shot or crushed to death by army Armored Personnel Carriers, are still waiting for justice after a year of legal proceedings stemming from two cases, one of which witnessed victims’ lawyers withdraw from the case and the other which saw protesters being put on trial.

Not one soldier has been charged over the killing of the 12 protesters shot during the violence. Several civilians, including protestors, bystanders and one activist, were charged with the killings. The trial was widely regarded as a farce, and all were eventually exonerated.

Gunfire was audible as soon as the march reached the Maspero building. Even as protesters were fleeing batons, bullets and marauding army APCs that crushed 15 people to death, the media was reporting that “Coptic protesters” were attacking Egypt’s armed forces and had killed soldiers.
Gangs of civilians took to the streets surrounding Maspero and detained anyone they suspected of being Christian.

A total of 33 people were arrested on the night of 9 October and the early hours of 10 October. Of these, two were Muslim: a young person with mental disabilities and a man in his 60s.

Mother's Day at the Cemetery
Lima
By ric francis
12 May 2012

In Peru, Motherʼs Day is celebrated throughout the country on the second Sunday of each May much as it is elsewhere in the world: Peruvian mothers are honored with family meals, parties and showered with gifts. However, there is a particularly popular location where Peruvians gather to socialize over food and drinks in honor of their mothers: the cemetery. Thousands gather at cemeteries in celebration of deceased moms. Such was the case at The Angel Cemetery in the Barrios Altos section of Lima, Peru. Just outside the gates of the cemetery the streets were alive with vendors selling flowers and heart-shaped “Feliz Dia Mama” (Happy Motherʼs Day) balloons, to a throng of family members, both young and old. The air was filled with warmth and laughter as women, children and men entered the cemetery and sought out the grave sites of their mothers and wives. A common sight is that of men balanced on large ladders set up against multi-level mausoleums; theyʼre hired by families to clean and place flowers as well as balloons on hard-to-reach graves. While for some visiting the cemetery is a solitary event, for others it is a social gathering used to catch up on the happenings of each otherʼs lives as they celebrate memories of deceased mothers.

During the first 15 months of the war in Bosnia and Herzegovina, the city of Fojnica was regarded as an exceptional case, as declared by the United Nations General P. Morillon "an oasis of peace." In July 1993, the Bosnian army pushed the Croatian forces out of Fojnica, unleashing a violent conflict on the streets, and much of the city was set on fire.

Zivana Vasic, 53, with her husband Stojan, 62, live inside the run-down hotel Domavia, in Srebrenica. Stojan is almost completely paralyzed and can barely move his hands and face. "He has spinal problems, but his brain and heart are in perfect shape. “If receive the proper medical care, could run now," says Zivana. The Health Board provides free medical care, but the resources are limited and there are only few doctors who cannot guarantee home visits.
