SCRIPT:O rascunho de um relatório interno da ONU sobre a guerra civil no Sri Lanka foi divulgado nesta terça-feira pela rede britânica BBC. No documento, as Nações Unidas admitem ter falhado na proteção de civis nos últimos meses do conflito e fazem um apelo por uma melhor ação humanitária. Em maio de 2009, as forças do Sri Lanka conseguiram conter os rebeldes tâmeis depois de décadas de confrontos brutais. O conflito causou a morte de mais de 100 mil pessoas, de acordo com as estimativas da ONU, e ambos os lados são acusados de crimes de guerra.O relatório critica os funcionários da representação diplomática na capital Colombo, que não perceberam a prevenção das mortes de civis como sua responsabilidade.O texto ainda acusa a ONU de não tornar público o fato de que “a grande maioria” das mortes de civis foi causada por bombardeios do governo, uma informação que o Sri Lanka repetidamente negou. A análise interna também questiona a decisão das Nações Unidas de retirar os funcionários do país em setembro de 2008, depois de o governo advertir que não poderia mais garantir a segurança deles.Fontes da ONU afirmaram à BBC que o secretário-geral Ban Ki-moon estava determinado a levar em consideração as recomendações do documento com o objetivo de aprender com as lições do Sri Lanka e, dessa forma, melhor responder a novas crises internacionais, como é o caso do sangrento conflito na Síria.SHOTLIST:**ALL FOOTAGE IN 4:3**UNKNOWN LOCATION, SRI LANKA.

Now that Bruce Jenner's interview with ABC's Diane Sawyer has aired, other members of the Jenner and Kardashian family are starting to weigh in. Kim Kardashian was on Today and talked about how they're handling Bruce's transition. Kardashian told Matt Lauer, "I think there still is an adjustment and there is family therapy and we're really close. I see reports that say, you know, 'This one doesn't support him and this one's over here and my mom feels this way.' It's all really so made up. We all really support him. Is it a hard adjustment? Yes." When Matt Lauer asked for an example of something Bruce's family has had to adjust to, Kardashian replied, "I mean even just the discussion, we have been talking to people from, you know, the GLAAD organization, and just different organizations on what do we call him? Do we say her or him? How do we be respectful?...Until that transition is done, we've learned that you do refer to him as 'him.'" Kardashian then gave insight on how Bruce informed the family of the news, saying "There were lots of family meetings...There is hundreds of family meetings. We still have them. Say what you want about us, but we work out everything as a family and we have the best communication…" Lauer pointed out that Jenner is now going to be the subject of quite a bit of attention. Kardashian thinks Bruce is prepared for it, "I think he is ready for the challenge and ready to help other people's lives that might be going through the same things that he's going through. And that's something that he's really proud of and something that he is really ready to take on. And I'm really proud of him for that."
