9:06 pm
expecting from this meeting. well we're expecting to hear comments by the secretary general. who recently said that if this is not an example of us that cleansing he's not sure what is happening in iraq state regarding the fleeing of hundreds of thousands of people out of their homes out of their communities and into neighboring bangladesh they say they're fleeing because they are being attacked by members of the military as well as by affiliated buddhist groups that are anti. this is of course a situation that has taken on considerable urgency here at the united nations in several weeks even though berm ease authorities have repeatedly insisted that what they're trying to do is to stop terrorists from plaguing the country this is of course something that has been roundly contradicted by the united nations by a number of n.g.o.s or non-governmental organizations that have been responding to
9:07 pm
this crisis and of course by eyewitnesses who have been trying to document what has been happening in iraq and state even though the military is trying to keep all outsiders out of that province and right scrapes well that pushing the international community to do more on day. that's right a group of more than sixty five to sixty seven non-governmental organizations have just released a statement calling on the united nations system to do much more than simply hold meetings and talk about how they're worried about the plight of hundreds of thousands of people more than five hundred two thousand people are thought to have fled me and mar for bangladesh in the past several months and that an estimated seven hundred thousand people. are said to now be in bangladesh near cox mazhar where jonah hall and others have been reporting in recent days they are
9:08 pm
saying that what the general assembly needs to do is pass a resolution calling for increased access to iraq and state so that what is happening there can actually be documented they're calling on the u.n. security council to strongly consider imposing sanctions on members of the military that are involved in this operation as well as imposing some sort of a ban on military cooperation between other member states and me and more we don't know whether the security council of for one is going to take up any renewed sanctions or travel bans or asset freezes but certainly there is a real sense that there must be considerable pressure brought on the government and young gone to try to stop what is happening it is worth pointing out that the national security adviser for for me and maher is going to be in this afternoon briefing and he would be afforded an opportunity to talk and of course we will
9:09 pm
report on what if anything he says to the members of the security council you know we should be back to you in the coming hours no doubt rules thanks very much. well the un's refugee agency says it's concerned about an attack on range of refugees in sri lanka and more blood by buddhist monks threw stones at a un shelter for refugees on the outskirts of colombo dozens of the mostly women and children were escorted by police to safety and health and us reports from colombo. sowing hatred and fear dozens of protesters led by extremist buddhist monks stormed this building housing thirty one room injure a few g.'s for me and. this is a terror group the lived in me in mar we saw in recent times they murdered monks killed women and children and also attacked eighteen police stations and an army camp wanly unconsumed she attacked and expelled them some of those taking part in the attack had been encouraged by live video streamed on social media urging people
9:10 pm
to join in the united nations refugee agency declined an al-jazeera request for an interview but in a statement said. the un is alarmed and concerned that yesterday's incident at a refugee shelter housing mostly women and children u.n.h.c.r. emphasizes the drift victims of violence and persecution and need international protection and assistance. but that appeal went unheeded as a single a nationalist force staged demonstration outside the un headquarters in colombo it accuses the refugee agency of interfering in sri lanka's sovereignity which it says is being threatened by the group of ranger. the lawyer for the group says the refugees feared for their lives as violent demonstrators tried to break down the gate of the safe house behind me stone windows and even scaled the walls as the
9:11 pm
police stood by watching the ranger muslims have now been moved to a detention center in both in the south of supposedly for their own safety zero obtained this video filmed inside the facility women and young children housed in a row of cells usually used for prisoners and terror suspects. the refugees were shaken by the siege of their safe house on tuesday but say they're just glad to be alive and will make the best of their new lodgings. the sri lankan government described the monks who led the protests as animals i would like to condemning the strongest possible. attack against. the. mount of any. of.
9:12 pm
the refugees are waiting for their applications to be placed in the third country to be processed by the un it will have an end. colombo. russian president vladimir putin is meeting his turkish counterpart regift in ankara right now about of an sin iraq and syria are up for discussion along with turkey's decision to purchase a russian made missile defense system. visit comes as turkey and russia attempt to strengthen their relationship which took a downturn following the shooting of a russian plane over syria let's take you live to and current speak to al-jazeera andrew symonds the relations between russia and turkey well they were pretty dire for some time exactly what has changed. well it's been a gradual process felicity but the biggest factor really is the syrian war both sides back different sides both russia russia and
9:13 pm
turkey turkey backing backing very much the opposition wanting the downfall of assad but now more realistic about the situation and seeing opportunities with russia to get some positive aspects. followed particularly the presence of kurds on the border they don't want to see that happening the syrian with a y p g and we've seen really a move slightly away from the united states the european union and even the most recent a month ago a deal involving russia for ass four hundred missile system which is upset many nato chiefs because it's incompatible with a lot of military hardware from nato this is what one member of an international think tank had to say that putin is in turkey to draw to wage between turkey and the west. that he has drawn in the first place and he's doing this very
9:14 pm
successfully but it turned in limbo are there are similar current issues on which turkey and russia i have common interests and our need to work really close in with you know one of them obviously is the most current one. but also this situation in northern iraq in the aftermath of the referendum well i did take us through what they're actually discussing right now that. well definitely syria and the start up peace process which involves turkey russia and iran they are the co-sponsors of what's happening they'll be engaged in for the pressurize ations effectively. they are trying to approach the problem this is the province with turkey's help in its relations with the moderate opposition groups there are what russia considers extreme groups there how that will be sorted
9:15 pm
out remains to be seen is very much on the discussion and then of course there is the issue of the y. p.g. further north and whether or not turkey can come to some sort of deal whereby they are not right up against the border whether russia can ever. some influence furthermore that question of the iraq kurdish position russia has not taken the same harsh stance that turkey has president has said that he may well cut off the oil flow from kurdistan russia has interests in the oil flow because one of its companies the rosneft company which is part of state has done a major deal worth billions for future use of oil and gas and also exploration so that one's not quite so easy but both of those issues both iraq. and the syrian conflict very much on the table. thank you. and there is
9:16 pm
much more to come here on the al-jazeera news including. another day of. at this time it's on the streets in support of catalonia independence referendum plus. resident startups and. the vanguard of the cyber revenue. but it's also exposed to its many threats. and. leaves the club that he just pushed details later in. the un has condemned air raids that hit five hospitals and two humanitarian warehouses in syria's it lit province earlier this week the calling for system to be set up so warring sides would protect civilians and medical facilities near
9:17 pm
groups of fighters the un humanitarian adviser on syria young egland said it was not clear who had carried out the attacks but that it was part of an escalating trend to attack humanitarian lifelines including hospitals. and health workers yemen as yemen's cholera outbreak is getting worse the british charity oxfam says it expects a million cases by november it says it's difficult to respond to the crisis because more than half of yemen's hospitals and health centers a closed due to the civil war but it's made. yemen is fertile ground for cholera when this outbreak began almost six months ago conditions were perfect to help the disease spread thirty months of war to stop virtually all public services strikes have destroyed water treatment and other infrastructure. it's everywhere. more than half of all the health facilities are destroyed or only partially working hospitals
9:18 pm
and clinics that are still standing are overwhelmed especially with infant and elderly cholera patients oxfam says there are more than five and a half thousand cases a day helder is a very easily treatable disease that it's very difficult in yemen with an active more that's happening it's difficult. we have about fifty million people in yemen who don't have access to basic and we also have a situation where basic infrastructure and essential services. for fighting in yemen between who the fighters and a coalition of countries led by saudi arabia has killed more than five thousand civilians another three million have been forced from their homes and the most vulnerable to cholera they're weak from hunger and have little money to buy medicine the war is making it difficult for aid agencies to get into yemen oxfam and other help organizations say obtaining visas for cholera specialists can take up to two months medics who do get in so it's difficult to move around freely
9:19 pm
because of military restrictions. al-jazeera. castle and authorities say they're working to ensure that a disputed referendum on secession from spain will take place peacefully despite being declared illegal by the central government thousands of university students have marched through barcelona to protest against what they call an intensifying crackdown by the spanish government ahead of sunday's vote john hendren has more from barcelona. each day a peaceful show of force growth. led by young infusion the proud catalans in the street. police say sixteen thousand of them organizers say tens of thousands more. they're going to shut the schools because you don't want to. know you. by comparison this twenty secession rally mustered perhaps three
9:20 pm
dozen people. at a secret location days after the spanish army arrested catalan leaders and confiscated ten million ballot papers this video tweeted by catalan president carlos preached a month shows the resistance printing new balance he got better miska the media but i must say how much they intimidate us no matter how many times they say that they will not give us the keys of the classrooms for the schools won't be opened there's a generation of she has been growing in our country and they add to this majority that we have in catalonia that they want to vote. at schools doubling as polling stations a showdown police have orders to close them students plan an occupation to keep them open stay there and. just to wait. for the moment the crowds are chanting these streets will always belong to us and while there are thousands of police all around barcelona right now they do. at
9:21 pm
barcelona's port firemen occupy catalonia is history museum unfurling a pro independence banner where the fire fight this have to go vote as every citizen can do it as catalans plan their defiant vote the spanish government's marshalling its in forces national police and civil defense troops in riot gear ordered to stop the referendum. the local police who until now resisted reining in the protests now role alongside national police in armored cars a cattle enforce under spanish control with cattle lands determined to vote in the spanish government in madrid intent on stopping them the long tense standoff broken john hendren al-jazeera barcelona the kurdish regional government in iraq is
9:22 pm
rejecting measures adopted by baghdad following its yes vote to session from iraq slamming it collective punishment iraq's parliament is urging the government to send troops to take control of the oil fields held by kurdish forces let's take you to that he's live for us in the kurdish regional capital of one of the kurdish leaders been saying charles. well the kurdish regional government released a statement after this meeting to discuss these kind of measures that the baghdad government seem intent on potentially taking on this region following this referendum radio out some of their statements these specifically refer to twelve. measures that were issued by the bank dad parliament by lawmakers trying to push government and prime minister. to sign off on them they include as you say the
9:23 pm
deployment of government forces in the so-called disputed areas outside the boundaries the official boundary of the k. ology that's in areas like oil rich the oil rich city of kirkuk all the measures that the baghdad government is pushing for for the retaking control of those killed cook. oil fields they've also asked for diplomats the diplomatic community here in the k r g to leave and they've also said that they want to see the land borders the international land borders of the k r g close now in response to these measures that are being pushed by the baghdad government back to parliament so on the kayleigh g met the sea evening and as you say they've called these. an example of collective punishment of the kurdistan nation and it said that they are legal and on constitutional decrees specifically with respect to this impending
9:24 pm
ban on international flights that so far there doesn't seem to be any indication that this is not going to go forward we've already seen a number of airlines announcing that they are going to stop flights this is of course. these threats to close. international airspace space over a bill airport over over the region and less the k r g hand over control of these airports and the k r g government said today that this was an illegal unconstitutional and contrary to international aviation rules stating that. airports should not to be used for political purposes for the oppression of people so the war of words continues the tension seemingly continues to mount it's also worth mentioning though that certainly prime minister he has said already that you know he does helen's has more capital. whatever estonians
9:25 pm
do as citizens these days it's likely to involve e-card visiting the clinic for example the doctor assesses a patient's full medical history uploads a diagnosis and patients use the e-card to get their prescriptions i'd see the huge of the one that is because i can't even imagine going back to the days when we had these paper britain for instance our baby medical histories. it's make the doctors work much faster so is travel banking tax and voting and get an id card through with your id card and you enter their id card into your computer and you put in a pin one you don't write anything you click on the name and that's it voted estonia was the first country to vote online two thousand and five and also one of the first to experience a full blown cyber attack two years later that's there's all this nothing is wrong
9:26 pm
with the one thing you know you have to be ready every time before every election and you start analyzing for the next elections how it could be made better how it could be improved even more despite fears of cyber aggression from neighboring russia estonia is pushed even further into the digital realm it's now realized a vision of the modern states where ninety nine percent of services are online and the solution environment where public sector data systems talk to each other and civic life is largely paperless at the heart of this is x wrote a creationist designers insist is remarkably robo. it's a distributed architecture there is no single point of failure all the communication in an id jargon. peer to peer so between two individuals there is no one central hardware which blocks or which is a single point of failure to be extra sure by the beginning of twenty eighteen
9:27 pm
governments data systems will be backed up in luxembourg meaning if it is attacked you can both run itself remotely and reboot the state and here's something for the philosophical among you to ponder on estonia is basically embarked on an experiment certainly smudges perhaps even a raise is the connections between state and country if the states functioning components give me sent down a fiber optic cable to work perfectly well from the other side of the world well will the states of the future need a fixed location at all. that's a question with no answer yet but this stoney is pioneering voyage into the digital future of state and citizenship will give us some clues rory chalons al-jazeera talent. well according to the latest report by the europe wide policing organization europol cyber crime is booming across europe the biggest rise over the past year was in ransomware attacks like the want to cry hack in may that virus
9:28 pm
froze millions of computers in one hundred fifty countries demanding money in return for access to the files last year so the first large scale attacks exploiting the so-called internet of things with hackers taking over in to connect internet connected household devices and turning them into but nets to use in further coordinated attacks and your poll also reported a big increase in the theft of data involving the disclosure of more than two billion records relating to e.u. citizens well jodi westby is the chief executive of global cyber risk and she joins us live now from washington d.c. thanks for being with us on the program how do you think cyber crime has changed over the years is it that we're now actually seeing these huge global cyber security attacks it's become much more sophisticated we are seeing global attacks speaking and we're seeing more type randa attacks where more than one thing
9:29 pm
happens in an attack servers or zeroed out data is stolen confidential intellectual property is taken ransomware encrypt data so we're we're seeing a highly complex environment and so cyber crime has been moving a ratcheting up toward more and more sophistication where as frankly our cyber security programs within companies have pretty rights remain to the flatline where they haven't been given the attention they need to this day with this threat environment why is that why aren't companies staying up with the new latest threats from cyber criminals. they don't understand they need to and they don't want to spend the money on it. i liken cyber security programs to things similar to plumbing and wiring in a house. if you spend money on those things it's not anything you're going to see with an i.t. system people don't understand that the whole company is dependent on its
9:30 pm
operations it's more than just wiring and plumbing and so companies really don't understand the full breath the port of cyber security program is what it needs to be and most importantly the governance that senior executives and board members need to be paying to this to this issue and that's if they were paying more attention the programs would be getting more money they would be better funded and the companies would be more secure what i also needs to be done to slide the criminals for example what about international moles strong enough yeah. right so the legal issues are are huge and it's an interesting area that certainly my work with my colleagues in the american bar association and with lawyers around the world we've been focusing on because the cybercrime laws don't exist in many countries where they do exist they're often very weak. we still have requirements
9:31 pm
for like dual criminality were it has to be a crime here and over there and often that isn't the case but most importantly our procedural laws of how we investigate a cyber crime we have to use those same laws we used to investigate non cyber crimes like robberies and that that process can take months when minutes matter so we have a difficulty in tracking and tracing cyber criminal activity and getting the cooperation we need internationally in part because of the legal framework and in part too because in many of these countries they don't have the laws established or people trained to help with this type of investigation so it is a global problem but there's very much a root of it in the end that acquits sees in both the legal framework for the laws and the legal framework for the investigations it sounds like
9:32 pm
a huge challenge ahead for all of us such as u.s.b. pre-show your time thanks so much for joining us. i do stay with us on the news hour because still ahead devastation in domenica we'll have the latest on the relief efforts following hurricane rhea. and also travel deep into the heart of the amazon jungle to meet an indigenous tribes that is battling off the twin threats of extinction and exploitation. plus the major league baseball champions the chicago cubs as another title to that collection from the town of instant. welcome back now across western asia and the levant weather conditions mostly fine you see across some we have got some shower activity i'm sort of pulling colder air
9:33 pm
from the north of tosh count there which is thirteen as a mix from elsewhere we've got a few showers in the southern side of the caspian sea kuwait city still stuck with temperatures above forty degrees and that is likely to be the case through the remainder of the next four five days heading on through into saturday again forty three here we've also got some shows around the eastern side of the black sea extending in across the caucasus following conditions from beirut in lebanon for the my sort of twenty seven here in the arabian peninsula dry and hot and sunny across mecca medina that into the low forty's here in the gulf states not quite as humid and maybe not quite as hot but still temperatures coming in that thirty nine degrees in dropping very slightly as we head on through into saturday now heading across into southern parts of africa weather conditions here looking largely fine made you see the old show in the eastern cape otherwise want to showers for the coast of mozambique but for most part it's sunshine all the way to sokoban and zambia coming in with highs of twenty eight but across central parts of africa are
9:34 pm
some really heavy showers across parts of central africa public in cameroon in particular. water scarcity is a serious problem when you use more then probably you need to why it is you. if they're. demanding as much water. as much. more to talk water just came out of there and we'll compare that to some tap water which could provide. water. you know i think this time all knowledge is iraq. this is a really fabulous news from one of the best i've ever worked in there is a unique sense of bonding with everybody. but something i feel every time i get on the. every time i interview someone. often working round the clock
9:35 pm
to make sure that we bring i currently as possible to the viewer that's what people expect of us and that's what i think we really do well. and again undermines the top stories here on al-jazeera the u.n. says more than half a million have fled the violence in. the state dozens of women and children died on thursday trying to reach safety of their boat capsized off the coast of bangladesh . the russian president vladimir putin is in ankara meeting his turkish counterpart while the talks are expected to be dominated by developments in iraq and syria. and
9:36 pm
yemen sculler outbreak is getting more than two thousand people have died from the disease. and there are expected to be one million cases by november. the caribbean island is still reeling after being devastated by hurricane maria with fears it could take years to recover eighty percent of the buildings have been damaged or destroyed and most of the on and remains without electricity food or water. has more from the capital. i'm here in a side street in the capital of a row so you can get a sense of how bad this hurricane was there just destruction here everywhere now look at this vehicle that i'm about to show you again it shows you how strong the winds were and how ferocious this storm was you can see a helicopter about to land here this is near the stadium and we see. here there is
9:37 pm
. thirty minutes when we flew into the country what we saw was absolutely devastating this is normally a very lush green island but it was all brown the force of the hurricane winds just ripped all of the trees and vegetation completely out of the ground it was absolutely astonishing when we got to one of the main airports we saw aid convoys that were arriving from various different countries helicopters also large military planes as well aid is finally starting to get into the country and it's needed desperately on the drive we saw more of the extreme devastation that's been hitting this country at one point there were people with gathering water from a precious water stream because that's the only access to water that they had their . way out to the right it's. just that. the
9:38 pm
steroid that. we came here to speak to the country's prime minister roosevelt skerritt this is what he had to tell us complete devastation and every street and every village in the country. it's as it is it is very painful to see the suffering and on which people well aid is starting to come into the country it's very clear the recovery of dominique is going to take weeks months you know it's going to take years. brazil's amazon rain forest is home to the largest number of norm contacted and recently contacted indigenous tribes in the world they've been living in reserve set up for their protection of the country's economic crisis i'm growing pressure to exploit the rich resources almost reserves could lead to the extinction of many communities as there is the first to gain access to the jabari indigenous reserves since the
9:39 pm
massacre of several tribe members there you see a new man has part two of our special series hello from the job id indigenous reserve what you see behind me was one of the jungle bases of brazil's national foundation for indigenous affairs which is in charge of protecting everything inside the reserve especially its communities but as you will see this space like so many others has been abandoned. the amazon rain forest is a wealth of diversity home to six tribes which have clan tact with outsiders and about a dozen which do not. in the job of the indigenous reserve tribes people are meant to be protected by the brazilian government body called for night. but when we arrive at the full night base along the strategic river we find it's been abandoned for months or even. three villages are guarding what's left of the base so it won't
9:40 pm
be pillaged you can move to you when there's no petrol for the patrol boats anyway we are authorized to police the river so if there's an emergency we can't do anything. with the canned food gone the volunteers make do with bananas. the reserve is the size of austria and it's near brazil's border with peru and colombia making it a drug trafficking corridor. with a full night base abandoned colombian fishermen are again poaching this coveted amazon species called got bought out. and brazilian gold miners bloggers and cattle farmers are increasingly invading tribal lands. that's why indigenous communities fought to have a full night base established to protect our people and resources it's known that several tribes were once wiped out by loggers and rubber tappers who invaded our region all this is marked our lives and we don't want to return to the days of such
9:41 pm
abuses against indigenous people mine which was a former for nine specter claims government leaders far away in the capital they've nearly have trained eyes already limited budget forcing dozens of regional offices to close. hardest hit is the area responsible for protecting the most vulnerable the un contacted tribes last month ten tribesmen were reportedly massacred by gold miners the is one of the isolated tribes as they're called here live very nearby we're told of their deep inside this rain forest precisely because they don't want to be contacted they know that outsiders are dangerous not just because of their weapons but because of the diseases they carry for which they have no immunity. and that in my own of the my i do not tribe says the isa lot of those sometimes leave their tracks after stealing bananas but he has only seen them from a distance. they look like us they paint their faces like we do maybe
9:42 pm
there myron a two but we've never actually spoken to each other maybe the day we do we'll find out that we are related. but both contacted and known contact in tribes the serious threats to their way of life. lawmakers representing brazil's powerful agricultural lobby are pushing to lift restrictions on exploiting this part of the amazon and president michelle temora needs their support to block an impeachment trial in congress many here seafood eyes budget cuts as a first step towards and losing all protection. if the state does not have a strong indigenous policy in defense of our communities we don't see much future for our people many tribes are in danger of extinction we're living in sad times she. see amazon region has long been at the center of a conflict preservation versus exploitations dispute that's putting in peril not
9:43 pm
just to rain forests vast natural resources but the lives of those who lived in it for thousands of years. but the outlook does not look good one of the reasons is because president michel tamar is now facing new corruption allegations and will need to keep appeasing congressman that represent the powerful agro business sector in order to avoid an impeachment trial and if he makes the kind of concessions that many people fear it will be difficult if not impossible to turn the clock back at least in time to save some of the most vulnerable communities in this reserve a controversial sunni muslim cleric has been found guilty in connection with a shootout in lebanon in twenty thirteen off without a c. it will now face the death sentence eighteen lebanese soldiers died along with forty of alice's supporters and two civilians and she has type has more from beirut . well in the early days of this case the prosecution in this military tribunal had
9:44 pm
been pushing for the death penalty for this year and some of his supporters and that is just what this sentencing is not only has all this year been sentenced to death seven others in connection to this case have also been sentenced to death as well there are a number of kohak used in this trial they have received prison sentences of varying links but the death penalty here in lebanon that itself is controversial the last time capital punishment has been carried out here was in two thousand and four it also requires the signature of the president for an execution to be carried out it also needs to be said. and his coat accused can appeal this sentencing and one would imagine that they will that this case is a very deeply controversial and polarizing case here in lebanon it really put into sharp focus the complexities of the region particularly at the start of the syrian
9:45 pm
civil war the violence that we saw inside on where i was syria's from really was one of the earliest and most major spillover of violence of the syrian civil war in the lebanese territory and although he went into hiding shortly after those eighteen lebanese soldiers to lebanese civilians and dozens of his supporters were killed he was ultimately arrested in two thousand and fifteen but again the complexities of this case really puts into sharp focus how many have struggled and particularly in the courts to try to figure out a way forward in the how to prosecute those involved in the kind of violence that we saw then but it's been very clear from this military tribunal that they want to sentence her and his supporters or at least some of his supporters to death and that's just what they've done. south korea says it's expecting more of what it sees as provocative acts from north korea next month the anniversary of the founding of
