jews iraq where ever you are. the growing up in the united states i learned that the first amendment is really key to being a good fit for freedom of the coldest point to be. men and women for the resources that are available what makes an al-jazeera story to me is that we just don't tell you what the subject of the story wants to know the government is not going to do the one thing the demonstrators want to apologize for that's what al-jazeera does we ask the questions so that we can get closer to the truth. i appealed to the leaders of myanmar including military leaders to condemn incitement to racial incident violence and the un calls that urgent action is new figures show of a half
6:01 am
a million rangers have fled to bangladesh. on down jordan this is our jazeera live from doha also coming up. the students join a growing movement to catalonia is independence referendum. people in puerto rico devastated by hurricane say aid from the us isn't coming fast enough plus. i'm stuck reporting from an evacuation camp on the slopes of mount i'm going to wait for a possible eruption continues. we begin with the crisis surrounding the range of community and man miles rakhine state which the u.n. chief has described as the world's fastest developing refugee emergency. has warned if mean mascot meant does not act the violence could spread a half
6:02 am
a million range and fled to bangladesh but some have not been so lucky diplomatic editor james vanes reports. they don't see men women and children fleeing bloodshed. and the torching of homes in myanmar they made it onto a boat taking them across the water to bangladesh only for the vessel to sink this tragedy the un security council was told a result of a massive flow of people over half a million in about a month the situation is spilled into the world's fastest developing refugee emergency and the humanitarian and human rights nightmare. the trumpet ministrations policy towards me and maher change sharply jury in this meeting with u.s. ambassador nikki haley demanding the prosecution of members of the meon ma military and the suspension of all arms sales to the country we cannot be afraid to call the
6:03 am
actions of the burmese authorities what they appear to be a brutal sustained campaign to cleanse the country of an ethnic minority having heard those scathing comments on mars the national security adviser gave his response there is no ethnic cleansing and no genocide in. and nick cleansing and genocide are serious charges and they should not be used lately human rights groups have been critical of the security council they say slow response has failed dismally to keep up with the scale and speed of this crisis both in terms of the ongoing human rights abuses and the resulting humanitarian emergency this meeting and in particular ambassador haley's comments increase the pressure on me and ma but the council remains divided with some notably china
6:04 am
suggesting quiet diplomacy may be the best way forward james pays out zero of the united nations well as a member him as a singer a fellow at the center for global policy he says as long as the un is not present in myanmar the government will continue to deny ethnic cleansing. well the u.n. security council actually passed a resolution of march of this year asking for a food un human rights commission inquiry and for investigators to go to me on maher and remember that was before this current crisis erupted and even back then they refused entry into myanmar. or so said that this will not be helpful and even as the foreign minister of the country she refused to give them visas so i'm not sure how much more they can actually push the myanmar authorities to investigators into the country when they have previously already to fuse them entry and in fact is my understanding that this morning alone that the myanmar authorities to date a few to to the u.n.
6:05 am
to investigate the human race atrocities are going on there and it's very telling that i'm sunk suki herself said over a week ago in her big speech to the international community that she doesn't understand why that will hinge our leaving. state and she invited international partners to come and join with me on mar to investigate this and she said this at the same time whilst actually the fusing to the un and to the country and any of them to our visas so this is a lane that we will continue to push that is no ethnic cleansing that there is no general seyed despite the overwhelming evidence of villages borning which you can see from bangladesh and subtly imagery that we've been rates watch is obtained of hundreds of villages being dazed to the ground and no you have dead bodies washing up onto the shore so the evidence is overwhelming overwhelming but they will continue to push this lane. well ranger refugees in bangladesh have been telling stories of murder rape and villages being raised to the ground jonah hill reports in the border district of cox's bazaar. the government hospital in the town of
