2:06 pm
criminal record he had no mental health history he was someone who people said after the event well he was a strange person but nothing was ever done by police or mental health authorities about this person and it's the same with most people who engage in mass killing incident within six weeks after the incident and not in ninety six all state and the federal government in australia united to outlaw civilian on a ship semiautomatic weapons and in the twenty one years since we have not seen a single massacre in this country moreover he refugees have arrived in bangladesh for me i'm on while the two countries have agreed apparently on a repat trade him plan the deal to send back the range it was made after representative from me a month either on from thinking he went to bangladesh for talks with the foreign minister the un has called the exodus of a the half
2:07 pm
a million range or the world fall for this developing refugee crisis in the un mark writing that progress myanmar has made proposals for taking back the role hinge on refugees both countries have agreed to form a joint working group in order to monitor the repeat region process both of us have agreed on every now bangladesh will figure out what the details will be of the composition of the joint working group so will myanmar and more now from our correspondent in the a majar of whom ellen. well there was a similar agreement to return. who had fled main mar to bangladesh in early around an earlier round of violence in the ninety's and it would be based on that particular agreement at that time about a quarter of a million refugees were repatriated to mean maher but it was facilitated by the united nations crucially in this instance there will be no united nations of involvement this will be something that's going to be worked out between bangladesh
2:08 pm
and main mar i mean my has said that it's going to set up two checkpoints. along the border with bangladesh one on land and one on water to process the return isn't under what it's calling a national verification process now we don't have a lot of details about what that process will entail but if you look back at the nineteen in the at the agreement in the one nine hundred ninety s. rangers were. expected to provide evidence of citizenship or id cards or at least some sort of evidence of residency mean months is extremely difficult for a row hindus have been excluded from citizenship and even if they did have some sort of documents many people fled their homes too quickly to take anything like that with them so it's unclear and unlikely that many of the half million or so refugees who fled to meanwhile will actually be able to come back under this
2:09 pm
process. has the latest for us from the other side of the border on the bangladesh side. with seemingly no end in sight to the or hinder refugee crisis questions are now arising about whether bangladesh and myanmar could come up with some sort of agreement to allow for refugees or hinder refugees to return to me and more now we've spoken to refugees that have arrived here in the past few days they are absolutely terrified at that prospect they say that they do not believe that there could be any condition that would allow them to return safely to me and more they believe that they would be in mortal peril if they go back we also spoke today to u.n. officials including mark local he's the u.n. emergency relief coordinator he's come to cox's with bizarre here in bangladesh to two or some of the camps to speak to refugees he said that really the focus now needs to be if there is going to be some kind of an agreement to ensure the conditions are safe on the ground in myanmar because that is where the crisis began
2:10 pm
here is more what mr lowcock had to tell us we need to pray says my wage people can safely securely voluntarily be allowed to go home and they own this is only zero thirty's in me and not to demonstrate to everybody above all to the refugees and so that circumstances are going to change so that it is safe to go home because at the moment if you listen to the people we've listened to in the last thirty six hours none of them think it is among aid workers concern is really mounting right now the cerne about the possibility of there being epidemics because of the unsanitary conditions that the wrong hands are refugees are living in also a lot of concern we're hearing about the state of children that have come here many aid workers telling us that the kind of trauma that they're seeing that for him to children have experienced is among the worst kind of trauma they've seen children experience ever. now calls for a general strike in catalonia have been hated by tens of thousands of people

2:12 pm
while it's true that this was told as a protest against police violence to the breaking up of the referendum on sunday it is also a fact that they don't think certainly the vast majority of the people here in the square are very much pro independence and indeed the section of the crowd is actually broken off here now has gone off to the capital on all of the building where we're told they want to impress upon the politicians. for independence to happen because they regard the referendum as having a democratic mandate and they want the president and the government to get on with its potentially by the end of this week separately in other parts of catalonia that in other actions very very noticeably across many major roads they've been blocked by drivers trying to drive us the main most likely linking northern spain to southern france is blocked by dozens of lorries all week. there's no police
2:13 pm
presence whatsoever the sun you know the guardian civill displays obviously by the council lines that the castle and police are into the distance but if the gaudio seville words were. i think anyway today it would likely be that my motorways blow simply because it's not it's a national assets if you like and they won't stand for that. that's being blocked in the aspen but otherwise the goddess avila been nowhere to be seen but ultimately i think what you can say at the moment is if madrid thought that. by dismantling referendum the referendum they could break the will of the catalan people for independence it doesn't appear that done so by any means all right lawrence either live in barcelona. so to come here is another push for unity among rival palestinian factions but will this make a difference to the suffering of trust. i'm nor about the money i'm

hundred others tens of thousands of people have joined the general strike in catalonia as capital barcelona following sunday's controversial vote to break away from spain the strikes were caught by catalan trade unions in response to the violence by spain's national police during the ballot more refugees have arrived in bangladesh from miramar while the two countries appear to have agreed to work on a repatriation plan the deal was made for a representative for me and miles leader aung san suu kyi went to bangladesh for talks with its foreign minister. now iran has deployed tanks along its border with iraq semi autonomous kurdish region iran says the deployment is part of joint military drills with the iraqi armed forces but tensions in the region a high following last week's caddis secession referendum the vote was held in defiance of the governments in baghdad tehran as well as ankara we can go live now
2:18 pm
to our correspondent charles trap that is him. that's a border post in the iraqi kurdistan region you're right on the border with iran so how threatening then all these maneuvers by iranian time. will certainly for the kurds that we've spoken to here at this border crossing the customs authorities here these maneuvers are very threatening to my right on the hill behind me there is an iranian tank with its guns are pointing in this direction into the kurdish area of northern iraq it's a similar scenario to the left there are tanks over there we've been told there are tanks in borders on the hills even further back further along basically all the way along this area now the iranians say that these tanks are positioned there as part of these joint military exercises with the iraqi military the kurds here say that the iranians have told them that those exercises certainly in this area that we've
2:19 pm
seen happening in other areas are going to be starting around fifteen kilometers from here any day now what's interesting and what's so frightening for the kurds though certainly according to the customs of sources here they say that it was on the twenty ninth of september that twelve members of the iraqi interior ministry arrived here and handed them a letter basically an ultimatum saying we are going to be taking control of not only this border crossing but the two other main border crossings between iran and the k r g the want to perve is for on another one it has and the kurds have rejected. that ultimatum until now they tell us that negotiations are still going on to try and come to some sort of solution the border crossing today is actually open two days ago when we were here it was closed i'm certainly to oil traffic food stuffs were allowed to go to and from iran but all traffic today is still open
2:20 pm
and they say that they're expecting up to forty trucks to policy either way at some stage today we've been here what three four hours now and it's safe to say we've seen pretty much zero traffic to cut a long story short the fear is that the man in the building here to my left the customs or storage fees the chief there said that despite. these statements coming out from the iranians that these tanks are part of these joint military exercises and despite the statement from the iraqi prime minister hydrilla body that he didn't see any kind of military solution is being feasible right for this crisis the people in this building here are concerned that military action could be taken but as i say negotiations so we believe ongoing but the situation here is very tense. live from penguin distrait in iraq you can't. the palestinian prime minister has chaired a unity cabinet meeting as part of

2:24 pm
failed to prevent terrorism a search and failed to or to prevent radical ideas a form of spreading and to quote even our domestic intelligence repression alone does not work and even emmanuel markhor himself said that the state of emergency is a figure against terrorism no our worries are that all the extreme measures of the state of emergency or house raids done are good without any warrants the suspicion against the whole muslim community of the shutting down of mosques and reading of businesses and their own sucking by the police must surveillance and arbitrary arrests not only will be passed into the common law but would also be made. by granting widespread suspicious suspicion to be acceptable hey what's right what's the first paragraph of but the form of the former prime minister bernard casanova he claims that in twenty sixteen at least seventeen terrorist attacks were stopped by the powers granted to the police under the state of emergency so some people say
2:25 pm
it's actually were kept from safe. well does any other person that the government has any proof on these attacks being prevented i mean you know the government can claim whatever they want so far we have seen statements from the from the executive branch of power but nothing nothing gets and again these measures have all prevented the bus today attacks and the study that took place here in france as a matter of fact even when you have a police officer saying that we can all go corp with these extreme measures you have reasons to worry why is the government persisting on this repression based model one domestic intelligence itself says that it is not working and we need to switch strategies and what would you suggest then to president macro and his government would be a better better alternative way to dealing with what is a current state of insecurity feel country well first we have to make the
2:26 pm
connection between bombs at home and bombs abroad you can disconnect terrorism at home for our disastrous foreign policy yet the government never asked the question why do these attacks happen and second why do the do they keep happening and i'm quoting again domestic intelligence fronts needs to adopt extremists right e.g. that puts around the same table policymakers community leaders and the security apparatus in france yet we have not seen that happening second there at least attacks happen even under under dictatorships and it's not because by turning becoming a police state that you would prevent them dick only question is how much more of our freedoms are we going to lose or what are the same time seeing terrorism remaining a new a new normal for us you know the government usefully serious about tackling terrorism ask the question why you yes i thank you very much.
