Today, CNN 10 starts with the account of the
woman who climbed out of modern day slavery

and didn`t stop until she
reached the peak of the world`s tallest mountain.
I`m Carl Azuz and we`re taking you to Nepal.
Home to Mount Everest, Nepal is also a place
of widespread poverty. About one-fourth of

its 29 million people live below the poverty
line and that

can make them vulnerable to the trap of human
trafficking. We`ve reported on how there are

believed to be more slaves today than at anytime
in human

history. This includes people who are forced
to leave their homes, forced to work, people

who are abused, taken advantage of or confined
to one

And 28-year-old Kanchhi Maya Tamang says she
was one of them. But her story didn`t end

with the people who once threatened to kill
her if she

tried to get away. Her journey took her from
the depths of captivity to the height of Mount

Kanchhi Maya Tamang is going home a hero.
It`s been seven long months

away, and in that time, she conquered the
greatest human challenge of all. She climbed

Mount Everest. It`s an unlikely turn-around.
Until just last year, she says she was trapped
in what is knows as modern day slavery. She

tells us she was a maid for a rich Arab family
in Cairo.

She was exploited, she says, abused, a prisoner.
Tamang says she was never allowed to leave

the house without minders. She even says her
passport was

The power dynamic was clear. She says she
was enslaved. And it lasted for six years.

Tamang tells CNN she begged and pleaded that
she needed to return home to see her ailing

mother. As sometimes happen in these cases,
her employers

eventually relented and she was free.
Now, Tamang was a woman on a mission. She
wanted to raise awareness about modern day

slavery to make sure what happened to her
don`t happen to

If you speak out normally, it`s difficult
to get attention, she says. But when you speak

out from the top of the world, people sit
up and notice.

And for Tamang, the top of the world was Mount

After climbing Everest, I want to work towards
the empowerment of women and children who

are victims of
human trafficking.
Nepal government says it believes Tamang is
the first survivor of modern day slavery to

have scaled the world`s tallest peak. And
now she is

coming home.
Sindhupalchok district is the major hub of
human trafficking in Nepal. Young girls from

here are often lured to work as maids abroad.

wants to stop that from happening.
Women here are illiterate, she says. They
can`t get jobs. They`re susceptible to being

trafficked. That`s why I want to encourage
them to

join the mountaineering business.
A massive earthquake in 2015 has made a bad
situation worse. More than 3,500 people died

in Tamang`s district alone. Tens of thousands
off their

homes, again, making them more vulnerable
to jobs like the one Tamang escaped from.

This is Tamang`s childhood school. Here, her
story is already legend.

We have to start raising awareness against
this crime from the school level, she says,

as the students listen intently.
The school was on her way home, all the way
up the hill. Tamang stops again. Other schools

knew she was headed this way on the long journey
Her story has spread. She wants the children
to avoid her fate.

Finally, she makes it to her parents. They
are excited, proud. They`ve gathered friends

from around the village to welcome her. A

ritual and then it is time to settle in.
The family is poor, but Tamang hopes she will
win supporters to fund her anti-slavery campaign.

She is now planning to climb other top peaks
with this message: We are people, not property.

I am a victim of modern day slavery, she says.
I want everyone who has been in my situation

to not feel defeated because together, we
can achieve

big things in life.
It`s a tall order, but Tamang says she can
make a difference, one mountain at a time.

Ravi Agrawal, CNN.
People around the world are remembering a
man known as America`s pastor. Evangelist

Billy Graham passed away yesterday at the
age of 99.

He was one of the most influential Christian
preachers of the age. Over six decades, Graham

prayed with U.S. presidents, hosted massive

events and preached to more than 200 million
people worldwide.

Condolences poured in from every corner, from
foreign leaders and all living U.S. presidents,

for a man who came from simple beginnings.
Born November 7, 1918, Billy Graham was raised
on a dairy farm in Charlotte, North Carolina.

When he
was 15, he attended a revival, it changed
his life.

Billy went forward and publicly made his commitment
to Jesus Christ.

Graham became a Baptist minister and in 1943,
he graduated from Wheaton College. That`s

where he also found the love of his life,

Billy and Ruth Graham were married for more
than 60 years.

Graham became a traveling evangelist, with
Youth for Christ, an organization that ministered

to youth and servicemen during World War II.
I do not believe that any man, that any man
can solve the problems of life without Jesus

Graham`s message resonated with post-war America
and changed how mainstream America viewed

God and country.
Billy preached against communism. He preached
a strong moral message.

That moral message included civil rights.
Graham became friends with Martin Luther King

Jr. and in towns where whites wanted crusades
segregated, Graham took a stand.
Billy himself took the rope down and said
we don`t have segregated meetings. And he

took a stand for his belief that every man
is equal

before Christ.
In 1950, Billy Graham made his first visit
to the White House. He met and prayed with

Harry Truman. Over the years, he was close
to nearly

every U.S. president. His friendship with
Richard Nixon led to controversy. A recorded

conversation from 1972 made public 30 years

revealed Graham making what many considered
anti-Semitic remarks in the Oval Office. Graham

later apologized.
Billy Graham visited more than 185 countries
and territories, building bridges and breaking

cultural barriers. He remained popular to
the end of

his life and his message never waivered.
Jesus said I`m the way, the truth and the
life. And then he said an interesting thing,

no man comes to the father except through

Ten-second trivia.
In what country was an army of terracotta
warriors built more than 2,000 years ago to

guard the tomb of an emperor?
China, Egypt, India, or Thailand?
In 1974, a Chinese farmer discovered thousands
of life-size figures meant to protect the

tomb of China`s first emperor.
A 2,000-year-old terra-cotta warrior is missing
a thumb after officials said it was stolen.

The theft took place at Philadelphia`s Franklin
Institute, where the statue is on display.

Police say a Delaware man broke off the thumb
while taking a selfie with one of the warriors.

He then pocketed the thumb and took it home,
according to authorities.

The FBI began investigating after a museum
worker noticed the missing thumb.

The suspect handed it over while being interviewed
by an agent.

Among the man`s charges are theft of an object
of cultural heritage from a museum.

The damage to the statue, which is valued
at $4.5 million, has angered Chinese authorities.

"We call on the United States to severely
punish those how have done this," Shaanxi

Provincial Cultural Relic Exchange Center`s
director told the

Beijing Youth Daily, a state-run Chinese newspaper.
The terra-cotta warriors were made for Chinese
Emperor Qin Shi Huang to guard his tomb in

The statues, dating back to 209 B.C., were
discovered by a Chinese farmer while digging

a well in 1974.
China plans to send two experts to fix the
statue, according to China`s state news agency

Not everyone wants to spend a few minutes
reading to a dog, and that was the problem

for a reading therapy dog named Sting. Usually,
kids read

to him at a Minnesota Library, but one day,
no one came. So, his owner posted a picture

of him in the reading room, all alone, and
let folks know

when he`d be back.
Well, it went viral. People from across the
country called, offering to read to Sting.

And now, he has more young readers than he
has time for.

So, the dog who had no one to read for him
is now all booked up. For some kids, it takes

the sting out of reading to put Sting in it
and now that

he`s bound for many hours of page-turning,
Sting is at a lost for words. But I wouldn`t

read too much into it.
