6:00 am
i remember the first time i walked into the newsroom and it felt like being in the general assembly of the united nations has the so many nationalities. just different places but it's all that gives the bank of the us the ability to identify the. other side of the world but we can understand what it's like to have a different perspective and i think that is a strength for al-jazeera. we're live from bangladesh's border with myanmar where the government has announced tough restrictions on refugees. and welcome to al-jazeera live from my headquarters and with me there's
6:01 am
a problem also ahead. at least thirty six refugees from burundi a killed by troops in the democratic republic of congo. iraq's prime minister says he's prepared to use military plans referendum on kurdish independence turns violent. against a controversial amnesty law and to see why it's being called a setback to democracy. will begin in the days where the government has announced tough restrictions on the movement of one hundred refugees crossing over from myanmar the bangladeshi government is setting up a new camps to house the more than four hundred thousand refugees who fled ethnic violence in iraq and state according to state media the hinge also barred from using public transport and looking for accommodation outside these cramped refugee camps bangladeshis promised to shake
6:02 am
a scene as travelling to the united nations general assembly to ask for more help to deal with the crisis the u.n. has warned about sixty percent of those who fled children and they are facing severe health concerns that we're going to get more on this now with our correspondent on the child and he's joining us from cox's a bizarre why is the government imposing these restrictions on the. well i think part of the reason there's always been the strategy they don't want their anger spreading across the country the government early on had a strategy to mobilize all their angles and put them in an isolated remote island this is still in the cards what the police made out a statement that no bangladeshi should rent out romes our nation to rowing we have seen checkpoints all across the cox but the area where political checking public transport for going got going in other parts of the country that has been reports
6:03 am
of some growing up actually going in other districts of the country now the statements say that knowing us can go in freely to other parts of the country and that they shouldn't take shelter within friends that granted are family members within any part of the country i think they want to separate them in one area control the situation they have already started the biometric registration process we have seen that with our own eyes we have actually reported on that in the long run i don't know what they're going to do whether they can actually settle i mean isolated island because by or they should still want to allow on this idea that a lot of this going out or most of them actually go back to me on my that doesn't teams of decades from the myanmar side that mainly spoke to the border guards yesterday and they said to me on the border guards told us bangladeshi brother gets rather that they may i'm out on me is very active they've been setting up land mines so those are going out who have crossed over cannot go on the other side in the end once although ingles on this side many most of them actually don't have any
6:04 am
documents to prove their own language because the dialects and physical look of ruling out and bangladeshis in the broad areas are almost identical you cannot distinguish so the myanmar government all this can said these are buying where they should the not growing as we won't take them back the rest is on the diplomatic front so far everything has been a talk and brinkmanship we haven't seen the volume of aid that should be sent. it's very meager aid agencies both locally and working very hard in the camps but there's just not an adequate aids or emergency response teams to take care of the number of running out who are there we have reports of medical spreading out among the children in my report yes that i showed you the medical hospitals are very inadequate for the number of running up patients admitted to their people in the floor to situation is very much in crisis and. crossing from the water is still taking place not in big numbers but every night
6:05 am
a small group of writing out are still crossing into bangladesh the movement has been restricted because of the exuberant price that both men are asking from their own in some cases the coast guard are preventing the local boat men to ferry this people so overall the federation is still very critical and tense and volatile in the ground candy thank you very much for that that sunday's child the joining us live from cox is bizarre and bond with a. well as a member of him is a senior fellow at the center for global policy he says bang they should belong has the resources to build enough hollands for the veggies at the border. well the latest numbers from the united nations and decay that over four hundred one throws in people have no cross the border over the last couple of weeks that's approximately eight hundred those in every single day or one throws in a water system to norway that bangladesh can absorb those kinds of numbers particularly in the fact that bangladesh was already hosting four hundred thousand is going to few g.'s so they're essentially have
6:06 am
a very ambitious and in many respects unless they plan to use two hundred two thousand acres of land to build these fourteen those in homes along with even half those in the trees one of the purposes of this ambitious plan is to ensure that they will hinge i do not leave those camps what we have at the moment are enjoyed a few g.'s trying to melt into the population and what bangladesh has an official policy isn't in one thousand nine hundred to grant nor will he enjoyed it could you status because we want all of those who enjoy to one team sooner or later to be repatriated back to myanmar we're going to move on to other news now in the united nations has called for an investigation into the killing of thirty six seventy and refugees by soldiers in the democratic republic of congo our correspondent malcolm webb has covered the story of burundi's refugees extensively and he reports from across the border and uganda they came here to the democratic republic of congo to save the u.n. says refugees died following
6:07 am
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 campus the only option was to go back to britain where we are afraid could be killed. the un says the demonstration was against the expulsion of two poor indian refugees they live among host communities in the eastern town of come in. as an administrator i cannot accept that 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 indeed i 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
6:08 am
violent conflict across the country. the government accused of actually did issue 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 camps about forty thousand refugees are in congo where the incident took place this circumstance is not clear we have heard about it just after it happened yesterday. seen what. had gone to the place of. the many injured including very early in this circumstance we heard that there was a confrontation with the armed forces. on twitter the rooney's minister of accidental relations called for clarification about what happened but for those who already lost loved ones the answers will come too late. malcolm webb out to zero
6:09 am
uganda. jason stearns is the director of the convent of that new york university's center for international cooperation he says there's a better political pep talk to consider 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 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 earning government didn't want to go back and at the congolese government then collaborated with burning down safe back in general in the past several years the congolese government has been a friend of the government in fact as guernsey's of the president has come under increased international criticism of the congo as one of its one of its remaining
6:10 am
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 going to leave but actually u.n. soldiers dressed up and called police uniforms and so as i said it's a confusing situation but a very great while. now iraq's prime minister says he's prepared to use military force of a planned referendum on kurdish independence violent the kurds in iraq have come under increasing pressure from regional policy and the u.s. to call off the vote on the twenty fifth of september and non-con reports from. the iraqi prime minister hydrilla body reacted with strong words the kurdish parliament's decision to hold an independence referendum on september twenty fifth if you challenge because. if you challenge the borders off you know on the border of the region then there will not be this is a public invitation to the countries in the region to violate iraqi borders which
6:11 am
is very dangerous escalation. of bodies were to admit with a mixture of defiance and anger in the kurdish region of northern iraq the president of the kurdistan regional government masoud barzani spike at a rally north of erbil in the city of. 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 except 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
6:12 am
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 and the kurds needed to get together and concentrate on the fight against and that's also a view echoed 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 centuries however some parties say the 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. that appeal. after a devastating attack by. trying to save the lives of.
