as cover for espionage they issued the following statement.
2:05 pm
in a major development the government. pakistan has decided to seal the premises of the save the children facility. the government said that the charity was working against the country's interest, their problem started after the attack on bin laden and the fact that one of the doctors was recruited by the c.i.a. and, he is under arrest, but that was enough to arowses sus
2:06 pm
submissions about the activity of save the children k. they had no doubt as to why it decided to seal the offices of this charity. for many years there was no accountability and simple engineers were working freely without obeying the laws, the job jurisdiction was limited and, they were found in a tribal area of the country and enough is a enough, we will not tolerate any organization working against the integrity of pakistan. however, they said it was critical that they had done a lot of work in the field of the anti polio program and, they were working in conjunction with the government of the pakistan, they were aware about what they were doing -- government of
2:07 pm
pakistan was mulling over the idea of adopting legislation to stop this. australian prime minister has refused to answer whether the navy paid boats to turn back migrants. asylum seekers, in the coast australia, has tough measures to stop the journey and detention centers have been set up, and the military toe boats back to where they came from, but in a new talk kick, and prime minister was heard saying that the navy pay people $5,000 each
2:08 pm
to turn back their boats. he didn't deny the allegation. what they have done is, stop boats, we have stopped the boats, and, we have used a whole range of measures dispark we will do whatever we can consistent with the principal making sure that they stay stopped and i'm never going to apologize. they get money and people who work with refugees say that they should come clean over the issue. this whatever it takes by hook or crook approach, which we hear in the high strenes of government is an unacceptable position for a country that has signed up for refugees, when it comes to asylum seekers, there is no moral compass and no moral limit, and that's not only
2:09 pm
astonish but unact emsemmable to take. they are demanding an investigation to see if any any laws have been broken, if true, this policy may backfire, encourage more people 14ugers to risk the journey to australia. and she's working in human rights laws. are you surprised by this claim. unfortunately not. they have a very poor record, in terms of the way it deals with refugees and, they are ever escalating the sorts of punitive responses and for their head of state to come out and say they will do things by crook is to attest to an illegal approach to immigration processing. he said, he wouldn't
2:10 pm
apologize and what we're doing is saving lives at sea and we're defending our country from the evil trade of people smuggling. do you think that resonates well where the home audience? it may well resonate with some of the home audience and there are many critics of his policies. but, the thing thats extraordinary about it, is to enmesh yourself with crime sin today cats. we hear about these smuggle crime sin today cats and the government itself, stresses how badly they behave, and so to be leading people under their controls and paying them, not only going money from the might go dprans, but then the government giving them a fare on the way back, is an extraordinary and per versus thing. i suppose, we haven't had a outright denial, and it left room for it to be out there.
2:11 pm
we need an investigation and start to be straight with the australian people. how likely is it that we'll ever find out if it did happen? these things do have a habit of can youing out and, there are a number of ways being in which they are in breach of the refugee convention, the penalties that they impose, the refugee convention doesn't allow you to impose penalties. and australia does impose those penalties. their detention policies and cam body a, to take. all of this is a failure to live up to the principles and the legalities of the refugee
2:12 pm
convention. how concerned are people about this? that there might be some sort of broaches and we have talked to europe and governments want to do things, to keep immigrants out, and that's the case, in this particular case in, australia and, they want to look like they're acting tough. is there a likelihood that it will change? the problem in australia is that these international instruments have no bite. so goment can avoid their spirit and that's what they are doing consistently. it's different in europe, where you have conventions that are incorporated into the domestic laws and in australia these international convisions, can't directly be enforced. so it allows the government to avoid the obligations that they
2:13 pm
have signed up to. thank you very much for your expertise. now, another two people have died, i 13 fatalities, and more infected. and they want to find out why mers spread and, they say a businessman brought it back. and, it was found 3 years ago and, may have spread from camels and, two hospitals have been closed as a precaution. elsewhere, four western tourists who posted naked have been sentenced to 3 days in jail and, after pleading guilty, to to obscene behavior. the act has been blamed for causing a earthquake. the four served three days in prison.

2:19 pm
impact that they're suspicious about traveling across the capital. last month two car bombs blew up where my grocery stand is located and look at the damage. we don't leave our neighborhood at all- across town, it is the same for seanmy muslims who were forced out of their traditional homes and now live in just a few neighborhood. we don't feel safe, and, i don't live here, and risk from government forces. it is not safe to drive through streets of baghdad any more after tweel baghdad split into sunni and she a sections with no mixed sections. those words are echoed by the changes, and they noticed that the sunnies have been increasing and what is concerned to one is the impact of sectariism on future
2:20 pm
generations. when they are kids and when they wake up, and open their eyes, in the violence, and, you know subconscious, fun days, and from 5-7, and many kids, they have that feeling. i think the future, we will face a real problem from those kids. there are still mixed neighborhoods across baghdad but they're normally well off. now, this neighborhood, in particular, has been hit byself car bombs, and the reason they do that, is to try to keep up the tension and it's not just isil and she a mount revenge attacks, and many are worried because, iraq might see a return to the kind of levels of sectarian violence when this
2:21 pm
country was plunging into civil war. the body is being guarded as reports that it was being snatched. iraq's aviation authority said it was delayed by a lack of official documentation. the families of four boys killed when israel bombed a beach are outraged that the army is closing its investigation. it happened during the gaza war the two airstrikes targeted hamas and struck the boys in error. he joins us, so, what's your reaction to the findings of, in this investigation?
2:22 pm
well we never trust these investigations that are conducted by the army, that is committing the crimes itself, how can you trust that group of people who committed the crimes, are investigating themselves, and in my opinion this investigation, is going to be used as a way to cover the war crimes that were conducted in gaza including this crime of killing children who were playing on the beach. this conclusion, shows very clearly that we cannot trust them and also, proves that the only way to discuss these crimes or investigate them is through the international criminal court. nobody should accept this. yes. these investigations are an excuse. how do you think this is going to affect that it will and
2:23 pm
because they have carried out an investigation and it may not be gated. what are you hearing about that. we don't think such investigation because it lacks credibility, as a excuse, for for not commit or conduct their own investigation. on our side, we are preparing two important things, that will be presented to them, and relating to the war crimes, including killing 590 children and, there will ab file, and it is a war crime. they are sending a group of judges that will arrive, at the end of the month and we hope they can reach us and, they can visit us, and that israel will not prevent them from doing so, and we'll see if they will accept our proposal that there
2:24 pm
should be an investigation into the war crimes. just on the . of this investigation, itself, in their evidence they said, that, they found that during it, some affidavits from witnesses that the compound which they were attacking was known as a compound that was used by hamas' naval police, is it going to be any clearer, what was going on, in that place? as more time goes past, how difficult is it going to be to get to the truth? these children playing on the beach, trying to find relief from horrible war, there was no indication of any kind of military activity in the area, the whole incident of killing these children was very well reported by many journalists. it was a war crime in a very clear manner.
2:25 pm
let me tell you that, we have evidence very powerful evidence, that shows that israel was not pinpointing targets as it claims and we have evidence of israel using explosives that were throne from planes and not shown on many media outlets and these barrels were just throne all over gaza, and killing people without identifying it. the israeli claim that they were killed because fighters were using civilians as a human shield is not true. it's israel's way of running away from responsibility, and exoring a war crime that was done. thank you very.
2:26 pm
