The discovery of more than 1,000 unmarked graves of children has prompted anger against the Catholic Church in Canada. The church has now admitted to "grave abuses."
The leader of the proscribed Indigenous People of Biafra (IPOB), Nnamdi Kanu, has been re-arrested and brought back to Nigeria to face his trial. Nnamdi Kanu and his co-defendant are facing treasonable felony charges at the Federal High Court in Abuja. Kanu fled the country in September 2017 after an invasion of his home by the military in Afara-Ukwu, near Umuahia, Abia State.
The Catholic Church is dragging its feet over apologizing and releasing key records on residential schools for Indigenous children, according to Canada's Prime Minister Justin Trudeau.
Prime Minister Justin Trudeau said the mass grave of Indigenous children at a former school site was "not an exception." He pledged to give more support to survivors of residential schools and their communities.
Tens of thousands of people have been protesting in Colombia in recent weeks. Many Indigenous people have also participated in the demonstrations — and their presence has intensified public debate.
