Hello, everyone. I am Creshon Saunders at the cnn.com newsroom in Atlanta. Here’s a look at what’s happening now in the news.

 

Britian’s Guardian newspaper has posted a new vedio on its wetsite, it says shows vote rigging in Zimbabwe’s presidential run-off. The footage was shot secretly by a prison guard. In it, officials dictate who to vote for and are seen stuffing completed ballots in envelops. The White House issues a statement saying there should be no question in anyone’s mind that Mugabe was not elected by the people. He used corruption, intimidation, and violence to keep this election from being free and fair. As the evidence seems to show every day. The International community should stand together in recognizing that the election was a sham. And Mugabe is not the legitimate leader of Zimbabwe.

 

Formal hostage Ingrid Bentancourt is getting a complete medical checkup in Paris today. This vedio shows tears of overwhelming relief and joy in a rescue helicopter just moments after she and 14 other Columbian rebel held hostages were rescued earlier this week and told they were free. Bentancourt pulled down a poster of her captivity at a welcoming ceremony in Paris Friday. The 46-year-old French Columbian was held captive by rebels for 6 years.

 

About a thousand people has gathered in northern Japan to protest the G8 summit. They are demanding solutions to issues like global warming and poverty. At least 4 people have already been arrested. The meeting of the world’s top industrialized nations begins Monday. President Bush will be among those attending.

 

Now to the wild fire burning in Sainta Barbara County, California. Firefighters are trying to save several thousand homes in a town of Glitter. A mandatory evacuation order is in effect for some 5000 homes there, with another 1400 on standby. Meanwhile, nearly 2000 firefighters are still battling a 2-week-old fire in Big Sur. It has taken hold of more than 108 square miles in the northen end of Nost Padris National Forest.

 

Venus Williams has taken home her 5th ladies single title at Wimbuldon. She beats her little sister Serina in straight set 7-5, and 6-4. Venus has faces her sister twice before at Wimbuldon, but Serina won both of those matches. Congratulations to Venus.
