8:25 pm
contravene international refugee law. it might contravene international human rights law. and the say many things that we have to know about under before we could consider doing it. so we think it's incredibly important that the policy is properly scrutinized. the king of belgium was repeated that he profoundly regrets his country's colonial past. in congo, king felipe and queen mathilde have attended a wreath laying ceremony in kinshasa in the cap, the capital of the democratic republic of congo. it's the 1st time that a belgian monarch has traveled to the former belgian colony in more than a decade or belgium imposed a brutal regime in what is now democratic republic of congo. the atrocities which included forced labor, torture amputations and rape, began in $1885.00 under king leopold the 2nd. around 10000000 congolese died. the king's rule was deemed so cruel that 23 years later he was forced to relinquish control to belgium's parliament. however, congolese was still unable to own land vote or travel freely before declaring

8:27 pm
formerly apologize and never discuss reparation, all and also the return of the off the fact that were stolen from the congo. because a lot of companies will actually want to reach the or the artifact and thinking and i was, can we teach them to reach that was stolen by belgian call tonight? so, call colonizer, because they say they said that there was no cv, these ation here in the course when they arrived, even though they were all 450, tried with their own, c, v, the ration they're only 2 weeks, and some of them their own writing and so or this was wiped away because of the exploitation that the belgian impose on the colony has reduced it and they continue to raise it to the state. so the atrocity of the red rubber, the weeping, the respect is to suffer by our system. i will funding fathers and mothers as she

8:29 pm
renovations, so damp out regret, the one good. this mosque is 42 years old and the equipment had not been replaced for a long time. as part of the renovation, solar panels were added to the roof. for now they only support a small percentage of the buildings, electricity consumption. and thanks to low flow chaps and treatment facilities. water usage has dropped by more than 30 percent. the is take law mosques, green initiatives aren't as good for the environment, but for its finances to since its renovation and its switch to more energy efficient lighting, the mosques, electricity bills have more than harvest. in april, the mosque became the 1st place of worship in the world to receive certification for sustainable design from the international finance corporation. the renovations cost more than $35000000.00 paid for by the indonesian government human unless it is the law we worked with the ministry of public works to realize our vision of an
8:30 pm
environmentally friendly mosque. on the outskirts of the capital, worshippers of this mosque started their own water saving initiatives with a low cost innovation, which uses the souls of old shoes to create a stopper to reduce the flow of water. and we have 650 children who will study here about a leading good. we do get also environment from, from the beginning. the mosque management also collect rubbish from the community, so it can be recycled. people promise to watch, like if it's easier for us to go in for them and look at them in setup, we are, i think people polluted and thinking fast, the indonesian capital faces many challenges. eco mosques are just part of the effort to help ease the cities environmental burden. jessica washington al jazeera chicago.
