9:04 pm
have traveled for weeks sometimes months, they had to work to earn enough money to pay for the journey. and to be picked up on a day where there's good weather conditions is a huge disappointment. >> it's back on land in libya that it becomes clear how much of a disappointment it is. how hungry they are. and how vulnerable they feel. >> please help me. help me please. i'm on my way going please, i'm almost there please help me, let me get there. please. oh. >> reporter: their stories are ones of people trying desperately to escape the turmoil they western born into. she's from ghana and three months pregnant. she was hoping to give birth in europe. >> i'm frustrated because i don't even know where to stand for i don't know what to do. because i have nothing.

9:07 pm
of sense when it comes to peace keeping operations but under a u.n. mandate. soldiers of senegal are in mali drc a number of other conflict zones throughout africa. but nowhere does it have 2100 troops and that's the big surprise. the announcement that 2100 troops commandos members of the paratroops were going to be deployed along the saudi-yemen border the official reason given, senegal had an obligation to protect the muslim sites here. giving a precise date on when these troops will be deployed to saudi arabia. >> the situation in yemen will top the agenda when secretary of
9:08 pm
state john kerry visits saudi arabia next week. he will meet on wednesday and thursday the united states is pushing for a pause in the fighting in yemen to allow food and other humanitarian supplies to be brought in. joining me from california is heshem hussein his parents are stuck in yemen even though his father is a u.s. citizen. heshem thank you for joining us. tell us about your parents why are they in yemen? >> basically my father has been living in yemen for the past few years or so. as a u.s. citizen he is retired just enjoying the end of his life until the war started in yemen a few weeks ago and it's been deaf stating for them since then. >> have they had any help trying to get out of the country? what has their situation been like? >> basically, they're living now the most difficult part of their life. during this war time. they had to flee from their home holm in ta'izz to a different
9:09 pm
town and they are now living withina home of relatives with others half of which are u.s. citizens. they have no way to evacuate from yemen. most of the options that they are given to them by other countries such as india china and russia, are far too dangerous or far from them to basically travel to either, because they live if central locations in yemen. they will have to travel at least five hours in a car. and it's not safe at the moment. >> so they have a choice between staying in a safer place in yemen or trying to travel through very unsafe zones to attempt to get out of the country. has the u.s. set up a system that's been effective for your parents to use? there is an online registry where you can sign up and get updates about ways to leave the cotry. >> absolutely not. this sign-often system is basically useless we get e-mails
9:10 pm
the few couple of weeks after the air strikes started we got frequent e-mails on a daily basis, about planes coming to the city of sanaa the capital leaving at unknown times without giving proper contact of those people arranging those flights so that's the only thing u.s. state department has offered for its u.s. citizens who are stranded in yemen. >> heshem, is there any suggestion that the u.s. state department is treating muslim citizens any differently is just not true. do you think this is different if this is a nonmuslim country? >> i would hope this is not the case. i hope that because we are a muslim people in an arab country. before 9/11, the did evacuate its citizens from yemen and they
9:11 pm
made it so easy for all the u.s. citizens to depart yemen along with their relatives who were not even u.s. citizens or holders of green cards. i'm just questioning right now at the time being all that's going on in the muslim world and all the islamophobia, is it making the u.s. more hesitant to evacuate from the muslim country. to be honest for you i don't have an answer for your question. >> trying to balance the safety of a rescue operation with the realities on the ground, what do you want the american government to do in the short term? >> if the u.s. cannot do it directly to evacuate its citizens dlectly directly by their direct involvement at least i'm hoping to properly facilitate with other countries which are their allies who are involved in the coalition for striking yemen
9:12 pm
at least to proper reply facilitate a safe route for althoughalthough citizens that are stuck far away from sea ports and far away from airports, to give them a safe evacuation route. i want to say that u.s. is providing logicallal support to the saudis. why didn't they warn the u.s. citizens had a were living in yemen to immediately evacuate or leave yemen. >> they said they had the embassy clear out about three months ago and they have been issuing travel warnings for years but that's not enough? >> travel warnings is different from an evacuation rule or an evacuation warning. an immediate evacuation warning. is ii feel the warning should have been changed prior to the air attacks.
9:13 pm

9:15 pm
ethiopian israelis were actually born in this country. and they insist that they've lived as marginalized citizens since then. if is beings few taking part in the demonstrations were willing to be interviewed fearing further victimization. but one member of parliament younted the reasons. >> we are here because we say enough is enough, we see more and more attacking by police, not the police but individual police members that treat them like crms. becausecriminals. because of the difference in culture they are attacking some specially. >> an unidentified demonstrator identified only by davide. >> translator: it's tough i myself am a police officer i took my uniform off to
9:16 pm
demonstrate. that itself says something it's difficult. >> the demonstration degenerated into violence. large number of demonstrators it is significant that despite what appeared to be explosive violence there were few injuries. >> only water cannons to disperse the crowd take into consideration the range to make sure no one gets hurt and stun grenades causes no damage whatsoever. >> the center of tel aviv is being cleaned up but little will wash away the sound of violence between jew and jew. mike hannah, al jazeera jerusalem. >> will resign his post and walk away from benjamin netanyahu's new coalition government. he said today that netanyahu's

9:21 pm
discrimination. >> people are restricted from living in certain places because of the color of their skin. i do not want to live in such a country. >> in 2013, israel admitted to forcibly administering birth control to ethiopian jewish women without their knowledge or consent. ethiopian israelis make up less than 2% of the population but have the highest poverty rate in the country. many have little access to jobs. >> translator: we witness racism against arabs ethiopians. >> pent up age are among ethiopian jews could be nearing a boiling point tension that could open new dialogue between israeli government and the
9:22 pm
community. bisi onile-ere, al jazeera, new york. >> len lyons jewish community of boston joins us from newton, massachusetts. good to have you with us len. israel did the right thing saving tens of thousands of ethiopian jews taking them to israel what was the follow-through? >> the problem is, particularly ironic and tragic in the sense that the motivations of both israel and the ethiopian group were really noble. the israelis wanted to fulfill part of the mission of israel, which was to provide safe haven for jews, especially eu who jews who were under threat in their home
9:23 pm
country, especially true of the ethiopian jews and on the ethiopian side they had a centuries-old aspiration to be in the bibl biblical jerusalem which they saw as their spiritual home land. both sides achieved their goals. they brought the ethiopian community to israel as your report just described and the ethiopians became reunited. so this dream that was supposed to be realized fell apart. and what caused it to fall apart was, the extreme difficulty and complexity in my opinion of bringing a population from a country like ethiopia, which couldn't be more different from the environment in israel, a high tech modern society and trying to welcome a large group
9:24 pm
of citizens from an agricultural community with low tech. >> right, because if you look at the reality for ethiopian jews, half of them in israel, half of them live in poverty half of them don't graduate from high school. but you think it's not as much racism and discrimination but historical factors that have led to that? >> well, i think it's a combination of things. that's the reason that i excise theemphasize the complexity of the situation. it's probably impossibility to deny that there is racism but it's not institutionalized racism not part of government policy. in fact the courts have been generally friendly to osh favorableorfavorable to the ethiopian. as your piece before mine pointed out laws are one things
9:25 pm
and attitudes are another. >> right and- >> and to educate people -- >> i'm sorry i wanted to get a couple of other things in len. >> go ahead. >> the ceremonial president of israel said these are demonstrations are exposing an open wound and these grievances of these jews need to be addressed. do you think this is a momentary letting off of steam or the more serious rift? >> well, i read his comments in the israeli press. and i think that it is the beginning of a ground swell which is true in other countries, even in the united states where people recognize that they can get their message across in -- by doing something that's very visible and very active. and one thing that your report also mentioned but i'd like to emphasize it more is that the
9:26 pm
ethiopian community's main frustration is that they feel they should be known for their accomplishments, which are many, and for their potential to contribute to israeli society instead of being known by their problems. this creates a prejudicial attitude on the part of the people that have day-to-day contact with them like the police. so it does set them up for being discriminated against. so i don't want to deny the reality of that.. >> len very good to have your perspective on this. author of the ethiopian jews of israel. thank you. >> thank you glrp helping with aid efforts in nepal. >> the extremes of which some areas are going to get to some areas of the quake zone. >> and crying out to syria for crimes against humanity. y.

9:38 pm
in aleppo alone striking hose markets and mosques. the bombs have killed 11,000 syrians since 2012 according to that report, amnesty international also points to many dead in detention or simply vanished. between 2011 and 2014 an estimated 85,000 individuals were victims of what that report called enforced disappearances. condemned human rights violations in syria but in aleppo residents are still waiting for the international community to respond. the world has turned its back says amnesty international in a coldhearted display of indifference. morgan radford, al jazeera. >> a look at how primitive a barrel bomb can be, they are three to four feet long and just under two feet in diameter. the barrels are loaded with

explosive materials and shrapnel like cut steel and industrial bearings, one bomb can hold nearly 2,000 pounds of tnt. dropped off of syrian helicopters, often made by russia. it lands on its nose, detonator triggers effectively responsible for many of the injuries and deaths. earlier i spoke with phillip luther a.m.amnesty international. about what he says is unthinkable atrocities in syria. >> in this report we describe the government attacks as amounting to crimes against humanity and that because they appear to be both systematic and widespread and targeted at the civilian population. on the armed opposition group
9:40 pm
side we believe that some of the attacks there qualify as war crimes. and that's because and again if one looks to begin with at the figures, local groups have counted up to something like 650 civilians being killed during 2014 in what appear to be in many cases indiscriminate attacks. and in many cases armed opposition groups are using diy weapons so what is sometimes described as hell cannons which are essentially improvised rockets fitted with gas scan canisters and killed civilians in large numbers. >> mr. luther amnesty international describes the area as half controlled by the government, half controlled by rebels. >> in opposition held areas the intensity of the astacks and in
9:41 pm
particularly the intensity of the barrel bomb attacks has just been at another level and that's why we have been talking about crimes against humanity being committed by the government force he. there are still very serious levels of attacks being meeted meted out, but the reality as well, for both civilians in both areas, there are restrictions on humanitarian aid coming in, there are restrictions on food and water and medical facilities and electricity on some cases those restrictions have been exacerbated by in some attacks on the main artery of humanitarian aid into option areas, 50 attacks on that principal route in the space of six months.
9:42 pm
>> what is the role at this point mr. luther of the flcial community, you areinternational community? you are talking about crimes against humanity. >> specifically the u.n. security council to refer the situation in syria to the international criminal court. just not being investigated clearly by the syrian authorities on their side at the moment. now there was an attempt to do that last year. some member-states of the u.n. security council attempts to do that. that was vetoed by russia and china. and -- but that must remain on the table. i mean there must be continuing efforts to push that through. however difficult it is. at the very least the security council should be ensuring that the u.n. mandated commission of inquiry which is like amnesty not allowed into syria should be
9:43 pm
allowed in so that the differing narratives that we hear from different sides and they're extremely different narratives, are pushed to the side, and independently verified truth is established, and those responsible, the evidence against those responsible is investigated thoroughly, and people find themselves before the courts certainly in the long run. >> phillip luther director of amnesty international's international program thank you. >> thank you very much indeed. >> angela merkel breaking silence on a spying scandal. >> defending the u.s. when it comes to surveillance. >> and burundi more people are killed in political unrest.
