2:02 am
has already warned of about sixty percent of the number who have fled on our children and adding that many arrive in these camps on the border highly traumatized. after walking for days i mean mars on me says it's targeting armed groups in rakhine state that's north of me and maher but those who say that the fighting. with these soldiers and local vigilantes are going off any range of people they can find now hospitals in van besa struggling to cope with this influx of people needing help have a charger he has the latest from. i mean cards was our government district hospital every day dozens of rowing a refugees are admitted here with various animals including bullet injury mine explosion injuries this hospital is only two hundred bad and it cannot cope with the influx of refugees patients coming here it is overflowed you can see patients out on the floor that made temporary arrangement with the government need to do is
2:03 am
set up mobile emergency clinic within the refugee camp areas unless they do that the local hospital just are not capable of coping with the new refugees over four hundred thousand officers are crossed over so far within the last three weeks and more and more are coming there's two hundred thousand children among them who need medical care at least two hundred in france right admitted within the local hospital system they are getting some sort of treat but not at a great and the international donor agency also need to get to set up mobile clinics otherwise the local hospital just won't be able to cope with the number of running up patients admitted in these hospitals. let's speak to a scene in for him he's a senior fellow at the center for global policy he's also an author of the the road henges inside mean mars hidden genocide he joins us live now from chicago seem good to have you with us again now bangladesh says that it's going to create around fourteen hundred makeshift tons of this is within ten days for the rains are
2:04 am
refugees i know that you are in touch with people on that border just give us a sense really of how realistic the is with the latest numbers from the united nations and dicky that over four hundred names there is in people who have no cross the border over the last couple of weeks that's approximately eight hundred thousand every single day or one throws in pair or there's simply no way that bangladesh can absorb those kinds of numbers particularly the fact that bangladesh was already hosting four hundred thousand scuse me four hundred thousand going the few g.'s so they're essentially have a very ambitious and in many respects unless they plan to use two hundred two thousand acres of land to build these fourteen thousand homes along with eight and a half those in the trains one of the purposes of this ambitious plan is to ensure that the injured do not leave those camps what we have at the moment are really enjoyed a few g.'s trying to melt into the population and what bangladesh has an official
2:05 am
policy since the nine hundred ninety two great new enjoyed if you do start is the cause they want all of those who enjoy to one team sooner or later to be repatriated back to myanmar in your opinion do you think that is the appropriate way to deal with the situation keeping these people completely segregated from society in bangladesh. well bangladesh you have to understand the location of these camps is in court bazaar which is already a highly in paul british region of bangladesh they are struggling to feed their own population they simply cannot feed absorb another four hundred thousand people you know the ambition the plan of buying a dish is essentially to try to the party these people bought to myanmar when they could conditions are low so and i believe from an international humanitarian perspective that as a kid attitude to these people are after all from myanmar and it is of sponsibility of the government of myanmar to actually look after the and give the look after their own citizens and give them food citizenship now i know that you know your
2:06 am
point here is that you don't think that bangladesh is how it should have the main responsibility to dealing with this crisis but what do you make of other muslim countries and their help or their involvement in this crisis well as far as i'm aware you know there's very little action from all the muslim countries or the muslim countries do i see members none of them have actually trade relations with my on maher over there it's the only countries that's actually protested in any significance it's actually been talking so the muslim countries are certainly issuing statements through i see and other agencies by i believe that it's mostly to pacify do local populations to demonstrate that they're actually doing anything but practically there's very little they're actually doing ok is in it for him thank you so much for your time. now reports have emerged last week had me on mars army has been planting land mines targeting range of feeling across the borders of the ash and saying since then several explosions
2:07 am
have been reported and among those dead and injured are a number of punk citizens who live at the very edge of the border lhasa ta report south from south east bangladesh on the bangladesh side of the nothing river a rustic life shattered by events in a foreign land. mom of hashem remembers how proud his younger brother was when he bought his first house. so when the animal wandered off his brother went to find it. suddenly i heard this huge explosion and i saw people come running they were running away from something i went to see what happened and saw some people carrying him he was in pieces. brother had chased the cow over the poorest border into myanmar and stepped on a landmine he lost a leg and is in hospital fighting for his life just behind me beyond that dirt path
2:08 am
is the enough river border between me and maher in bangladesh just a few thousand feet away from the home of mohammad hussian over there you can see several cows crossing back and forth between the river as they graze the myanmar army has been accused of planting the mines to stop growing your refugees fleeing what the united nations has called ethnic cleansing about half a million rohingya are estimated to have entered bangladesh in the past month some of them are fighting back and this bangladeshi man witnessed a strange sight a little to well. i was walking along here for the border when i saw working a man with something in his hand what it was he said he dug up. the developments across the border have caught many villagers here of guard once asserting that provided a scenic view for a moment the mountains of myanmar are now
2:09 am
a source of dread mars atar zero to brew bangladesh the united nations has called for an investigation into the killing of thirty six were indian refugees by soldiers in the democratic republic of congo al-jazeera as malcolm webb has covered the story of burn these refugees extensively and he reports across the border in uganda. they came here the democratic republic of congo for safety un as refugees died following a protest demonstrators clashed with soldiers and dozens were killed and injured. we were informed that the leaders around here they would not let the refugees stay here and even get into the camp is the only option was to go back to britain where we are afraid could be killed it's the u.n. says the demonstration was against the expulsion of two poor indian refugees they live among host communities in the eastern town of coming. as an administrator i
2:10 am
cannot accept the brothers and sisters die here in congress as you know the story is very clear that these people will cooperate with them even today we continue to cooperate with them. during these political crisis began in april twenty fifth and president p.f. and to indeed they launched his bid for a third term in office opposition and rights groups say it was illegal and unconstitutional what started with street protests in the capital later became violent conflict across the country. the government accused of extradition killings and torture to silence critics things it denies. four hundred thousand people left the country because of the violence most of them live in camps like this one in tanzania. both government agents and armed opposition have been accused of operating within the camp. well forty thousand refugees are in congo where the incident took place the circumstances are not clear we have heard about it just
2:11 am
after it happened yesterday. seymour said and harkness is also had gone to the place also to treat the many injured including very severely injured their circumstances we heard that there was a confrontation with the armed forces and shooting on twitter these minister of external relations called for clarification about what happened but for those who already lost loved ones the answers will come too late. malcolm webb. uganda. speak to jason stearns he is the director of the congo research group at new york university's center for international cooperation he joins us on skype from one clan jason good to have you with us so what do you make of these recent developments and tell us more about this province of common euro in congo's south kivu province. well it's still very difficult to know what exactly happens.
2:12 am
as. your clip indicated the whole thing started with a confrontation between refugees and the congolese police some of these refugees have been taken back by force to burundi and so other refugees protest at the context is very important the congo has harbored not only many refugees but many of the people that the earning government deems to be its opponents the burning government together with the congolese government have in the past at least targeted those opposition and so without knowing the details of the bends it's clear that i think some of these people who are calling the soil felt that they could be persecuted they were backed early and here the commies government is taking them back by force that i think is the context what for me is the most alarming thing is that this wasn't just one or two people who were killed in a scuffle which is what some people say that it was this is probably more than thirty people who are the women and children who were killed and so it seems have
2:13 am
been much more than just a scuffle at the same time it seems that congo's government has denied that these people that were killed were actually refugees this coming from the government spokesperson there monday. and at the same time the d.s.e. has seen twenty years of on conflict an internal ones within within its own country so in terms of the bigger picture just explaining to us that the the relations here that seems to be fearing these problems. well it must be said on the issue of whether these people were refugees or not most of them were not living in a refugee camp they were staying in host communities most of the people apparently were of the c. ethnic group. many tutsi. now have gone over towards the opposition although it's a mixed picture and burundi. and so it's possible that some of those refugees felt that they were being targeted by the burning government that want to go back and to call these government then collaborated with burning government say back in general
2:14 am
in the past several years the colonies government has been a friend of the government in fact as the president has come under increased international criticism of the congo as one of its its one of its remaining allies in that and so it's interesting that this is happening at the moment in the eastern congo there have been accusations in fact that some of the people who carried out the killings were not called police but actually and soldiers dressed up in call these uniforms and so as i said it's a confusing situation but a very great one ok thank you so much full playing some context that situation. more ahead in the news hour including. a rebel man is boss alone hosts mass political demonstration in favor of an independence vote. and cuba its mass clean up operation off the hurricane battered the caribbean island. and in

a significant development in the search for the person or people who planted the device and we've got the full weight of the counts terrorists place not what we've got our colleagues in the intelligence agencies and government helping in every way they possibly can we're making some very considerable progress you would have seen the announcement of and i rest there on in relation to this and so we will continue to work as hard as we can to make sure that we reduce the threat in this country and that we know exactly who it was who did this whether there's anybody else involved and just try to reduce the risk as possible fast as we possibly can police have again appealed for information and images that might help them and despite the arrest the threat level stayed at critical following a meeting of the government's emergency cabinet it means an attack could be imminent an indication police believe they could be suspects or possibly materials related to friday's rush hour bombings still at large the heightened threat level

president of the kurdistan regional government masoud barzani spoke at a rally north of erbil in the city of. baghdad rejected our partnership. if you have a look at the iraqi constitution it says the commitment to this constitution keeps the free unity of iraq we decided to live with baghdad but they didn't accept our partnership now they have to accept we will be good neighbors if they want to accept our partnership we won't be their servants. one source of tension is the disputed territory of kirkuk which the kurds say belongs to them but is also claimed by iraq the kurds have been clear that the referendum will take place in kirkuk and have sent troops to the city but the local iraqi militia says any ballot box will be seen as an act of aggression the international community also reacted brett mcgurk who is the u.s. special representative to the coalition said that this referendum would not be supported by the u.s. and the iraqis on the kurds needed to get together and concentrate on the fight

against and that's also of u s. by the british foreign office. across the kurdish region flags have been waving and nationalism amongst this distinct ethnic group is the fever pitch ordinary kurds and their leaders see this referendum as then migrant a chance for self-determination and their own nation state something they've been striving for to name a century however some party same time is not now but they may back the popular movement that seems to be on track to hold the referendum despite the objections of iraq the united states and opposition across the region imran khan how does it appeal. let's get more now on the london tube bombing and speaking to darren poacher a retired n.y.p.d. lieutenant and criminal justice professor at pace university he joins us from new york daryn good to have you with us on al-jazeera so this him to have been quite a swift response from you. thanks for being with us so there was quite
2:30 am
a christmas stretched response from the u.k. authorities. in regards to the arrest of this eighteen year old in dover on the english channel and also a raid in sunbury in west london what does this tell you. well the reason why it was such a quick was response in connection with an arrest was because in the subway systems in london you have a lot of automation consisting of a camera system in london they use something we refer to as the ring of steel and it's a network of cameras that line the interior and exterior of london as well as the subway system so the actual bomber was caught on video and with the london authorities use i want to see scotland yard utilize was something we refer to as facial recognition the facial recognition enabled law enforcement to capture an image of that person and match it up in a database and that's how they were so swiftly able to apprehend this individual now talk us through what or parties would be coming through now as part of this
2:31 am
investigation also the u.s. and u.k. joint intelligence gathering. sure what happens with an explosive device any explosive device has what we refer to as a signature the signature is the construction of this particular explosive that signature of this bomb what they'll do is law enforcement is going to recreate this explosive ordinates this was i believe it was a pressure cooker bomb and so what they would do or of skewed me a bucket bomb rather so what they've got to do is in a lab they're going to reconstruct this explosive and they're going to look on in the computer database to who use this type of signature so it's going to lead law enforcement not just in london but it's going to lead them abroad where's m i five m i six can join on an investigation to wherever this particular investigation takes them and that's going to be predicated on what the signature of the bomb was
2:32 am
in addition to that the n.y.p.d. has detected all over the world one of those places is london in particular there's those detectives are in what we refer to as the intelligence division the detectives in the intelligence division that a station in london act on intelligence gathering basis only they do not commit to enforcement all they do is extract as much intelligence as possible and then they transmit that information to new york city and there we would make an assessment as to if we need to either increase or maintain the level of a threat assessment and that's what's happening here now ok now let's just focus our attention on the device what is the fact that this device was actually on a timer tell us i mean in terms of bigger picture it seemed quite interesting that this particular individual was not prepared to die so has there been a change in tactic care in terms of who are be responsible and also maybe indications of a much bigger cell. and it goes back to the signature of the bomb
2:33 am
maker that's go to a lot oftentimes we see these types of explosives most of ordinates that people carry and we refer to them as a quote unquote suicide bomber but this like you mentioned this was a time device and it went off prematurely i generally believe that the bomb maker had intended for the this device to go off in the more densely populated area because we remember the something happened during rush hour however unfortunately it's very difficult for the bomb maker to plan for excessive style prolonged stops and things to that effect this could have been far more catastrophic had it moved into the next stop which was a more densely populated neighborhood the neighborhood but nestled in the more densely populated subway station in london ok darren porter thank you so much for your time. how does fifty four people have died during three months of trench will reign in the jam the u.n. says more than eleven thousand homes have been destroyed in the country's capital
