A Report on the Winter Olympic Games
On Friday, February 26, ABC News' "20/20" brings the story of Joseph Reyes, a veteran of the war in Afghanistan and father of three-year-old Ela. Reyes made headlines when he recently took his daughter to a Chicago church. In what some are calling an extraordinary court order, a family court judge imposed a 30-day restraining order forbidding Joseph from exposing his daughter to any other religion than the Jewish religion during his visitation with Ela. His estranged wife sought the order after Joseph � who is Catholic but converted to Judaism during his marriage to Ela's mother � had their daughter baptized in the Catholic Church without the mother's knowledge. Despite the judge's order, he then took his daughter back to church with a camera crew in tow. On Friday, "20/20" co-anchor Chris Cuomo speaks exclusively with Joseph's estranged wife, Rebecca, and explores how far the courts can go in terms of religion, families and the raising of a child.
Then: After years of savage wars and brutal dictators, Uganda is thriving. But in the capital, Kampala, where commerce and capitalism now reign, some of Uganda's new rich are turning to a twisted strand of ancient mysticism in pursuit of wealth. From this cocktail of the ancient and the modern, from this inequality of wealth and poverty, a gruesome new phenomenon is emerging -- child sacrifice. Dozens of children have been sacrificed in the past two years. Hundreds more are missing. ABC News correspondent Nick Watt takes an arduous journey to Uganda to meet a woman whose son was beheaded, only to learn that her husband, the boy's father, had his own son sacrificed for money. Watt also goes undercover to visit a witch doctor suspected of child sacrifice.
And: ABC News correspondent David Muir reports on this year's winter Olympic Games. With the American teams currently ranking #1 with an impressive 28 medals during these 2010 Olympics � including seven gold -- Muir explores the reasons behind the impressive performances.
These reports air on "20/20," FRIDAY, FEBRUARY 26 (10:00-11:00 p.m., ET) on the ABC Television Network. Elizabeth Vargas and Chris Cuomo are the co-anchors of ABC News' "20/20." David Sloan is the executive producer.
