in Riyadh. Were very much on guard, very much aware of whats going on.Im
extremely wary, David Castillo, vice-president of a telecoms company in Saudy

terror inside the country.

ape species, the United Nations says.
It is launching an appeal for $25m, the minimum it says is needed to avert
their extinction within a few decades.
All the apes gorillas, chimpanzees, bonobos (pygmy chimps), and

says. It hopes to establish areas where ape populations can stabilize or even grow,
if it manages to raise enough money.
