china's property. fields become cities rivers water parks forests. mostly empty. brings international performance the illusion of a thriving metropolis and the myth of an infomercial economy chinese dream a witness documentary at this time on al-jazeera. on the move again this being a dramatic increase in the number of ranger muslims fleeing myanmar to escape violence. there i'm fully back to believe this is al jazeera live from my headquarters in doha head the diplomatic dispute between turkey and the us intensifies president
says america's decision to suspend visa said this is what turkish citizens is upset . catalonia is either under growing pressure to drop plans to break away from spain ahead of an important speech on to the regional parliament on tuesday plus with the wind driven event this fire change behavior very rapidly is moving throughout the area as one hundred people missing twenty thousand evacuated as wildfires spread in the u.s. state of california. we begin with the iraq injury refugee crisis and the number of running a refugees fleeing ongoing violence in myanmar has again increase they'd been a law in the last week but we're hearing reports that up to ten thousand people have crossed the border into bangladesh in the last few days now since the latest
offensive began in august two hundred six hundred fifty thousand people have fled myanmar's rakhine state into bangladesh on sunday at least twelve rohingya refugees died when their boat capsized in the waters off bangladesh most of them were children yabber melhem has the latest now from young on all people of course have been fleeing violence in the north of the country in iraq and state but what we're hearing now from the united nations office for humanitarian affairs as well as from residents of hmong door which is the epicenter of the conflict is that people are leaving because simply they're going hungry there is a lack of food aid people who are on a subsistence existence already and an hour an hour face restrictions on their movements they can't access the market they can't go to their fields and i can't go
fishing so many people are taking the desperate decision to flee to bangladesh where relatives and friends have been telling them that there is food and there is shelter so come here and you'll be taken care of now this is just increasing the urgency of calls by the united nations and other aid organizations to open up record time state to food and humanitarian assistance. you know the well president has described a u.s. decision to suspend most. citizens as upsetting the current standoff began with the arrest of a u.s. consular employee consulate employee in a sample accused of links to last has failed but as reports it all takes place within a backdrop of rating relations between the two nato allies. after the arrest of a worker at the u.s. embassy in ankara and a warrant issued for another the u.s. took the unusual step of saying they would stop issuing visas for some turkish
nationals traveling to america the first explanation was posted by the u.s. ambassador to turkey on twitter we don't know if these arrests are singular events or if we should expect other turkish staff members to be arrested turkey quickly followed suit with similar measures but president rich a type one said he did it reluctantly. this is a very sad decision and the ambassador has taken a decision and started implementing it so it's a source of sadness this is just the latest in a growing list of diplomatic back and forth the relationship between these two nato allies started souring during the syrian civil war turkey upset the u.s. didn't do enough against the assad government even angrier when the u.s. backed kurdish fighters and later armed them. then last year's coup attempt and it got worse erdogan blamed to cleric for to the golan who lives in the u.s.
they wanted him extradited for his alleged role the obama administration refused and the trump administration hasn't moved on it either that was a big issue when he first met president donald trump but that was overshadowed by what happened when he left the oval office. turkish security officers violently attacked what appeared to be peaceful protesters outside the turkish ambassador's residence fifteen of them were indicted in u.s. courts and as a result the u.s. stopped a planned sale of small arms to turkey. turkey further angered the u.s. when it agreed to buy a russian missile defense system equipment that wouldn't work within nato has indicated he would be willing to trade americans imprisoned in turkey for good lawn but given that would be hard to do within the legal system something he really wants the case thrown out against her citizen reza zurab who is awaiting trial in the u.s. for allegedly helping turkey evade sanctions against iran it's less a matter of wanting it back than wanting the case to go away it wanting him not to
testify not wanting any of the details about their role in helping iran evade sanctions coming out in the course of a trial it will be yet another chance for the already frosty relationship to cool even more political hay in al-jazeera washington. well with us now in the studio is our turkey based correspondents in and kosovo who we are lucky enough to have in doha with us right now soon and let's talk about the turkish reaction we heard president say that he's upset by this u.s. decision beyond being upset what can we expect from the turks in the coming days well beyond being upset actually the finding from the turkish side is that they find the spend measure as this proportional that's the main story fawley we know that the live retaliated yet they retaliated in the very same way on the very same level that's why prisons and on this today he said in his press conference that i told my colleagues to retaliated on the very same level so
they're keeping it they're keeping the measures on the embassy levels that they haven't carried out to the spoke softly foreign ministries or presidential level but there is a hole in both sides as far as i know from both american and turkish side that when u.s. president donald trump and turkish president don speak on the phone they will have a way out for this to sort the sort out the crisis turkey was expressed was expecting some reaction from united states when they detained him it in took a u.s. consul. exactly but of course they weren't expecting a measure like suspending the reasons for troops but the u.s. ambassador joe it to turkey that this was not you know suspension of the they're trying to cool down their work in turkey do you think that from the turkish side at
least a willingness perhaps to deescalate things to cool down things and to keep it at this level because the relationship with the u.s. is still a very important one despite the fact that turkey may it might be looking to other allies and partners in other car. of course turkey and the united states have been nato allies and turkey has always been as the a point of stabilization in the region. for united states both in the military terms and political terms but of course this was a serious message by washington to ankara especially thinking about the ongoing operation in turkey with russia and iran these are important developments on the turkish sides but we both know that both sides have lost their trust in each other so they are still allies but there is no full trust ok thank you very much for that. now the turkish military is continuing to survey parts of italy province
in syria ahead of the establishment there of a so-called deescalation zone turkish forces have been deployed at the border since it was announced they would support syrian rebels in their battle against a former al qaeda affiliate in adelaide the group diary controls most of the province and has rejected the proposed zone agreed on by turkey russia and iran further inland in iraq a u.s. spy syrian fighters say they're preparing for a final push to retake neighborhoods still held by ice or officials from the kurdish led syrian democratic forces believe the last phase will take between seven and ten days operation to retake rocko with the backing of u.s.'s support has been going on since june. now a far reaching report that looks at inequality in the u.k. any society is expected to be unveiled on to say by the british government the racial disparity audit was taught it last year by prime minister theresa may and examines how people of different ethnicities are treated in areas of health
criminal justice and education paul brennan has more on why sun and not backing the odd it. in the eighteen ninety s charles booth's maps of the rich and poor areas of victorian london showed the glaring inequalities of the age more than a century later on her first day as prime minister to race in may chose to make social justice her core priority to. that means fighting against the burning injustice but if you're born poor you will die on average nine years earlier than others if you're black you're treated more harshly by the criminal justice system than if your white. inequality is stubbornly endemic in the u.k. in education employment housing health care and the criminal justice system a person's racial and economic background can profoundly affect the opportunities and treatment they receive it's not overt racism in vats people are saying i don't
want to black person working for me but it's more of a subtle things around ok wovens person have a right communication skills seventy six percent of white people are in employment compared to sixty four percent employment and ethnic minorities black caribbean pupils are three times more likely to be expelled from school than white children and ethnic minority house sorts or almost twice as likely to live in relative poverty teresa mayes racial disparities orders had been due to report its conclusions in july but then in june came a tragedy which turned the widespread concern about equality international outrage . the ground for tough. almost eighty people were killed and in the midst of recriminations about cost cutting and social housing a shocking reality emerged that in one of the u.k.'s richest barra's the numerous safety concerns raised by some of its poorest residents had apparently been ignored
or dismissed by the authorities to reason why does it need to do an already on rice you're looking at the monk complement look at yourselves and how you treat us and try and work out why you do that rather than constantly coming in and doing all day it's what our lives are like because our lives will only china if you change if you treat us differently. better data should mean better transparency and accountability and reform but charles booth probably also thought that a century ago paul brennan al-jazeera london. still ahead on al-jazeera remembering the revolutionary latin america. we. expose himself more women come forward with stories of sexual harassment against one of hollywood's most powerful producers.

there watching al-jazeera reminder our top stories this hour the number of ranger refugees fleeing violence in myanmar has again increased following a law in recent days reports say ten thousand have not crossed into bangladesh in the last few days half a million ranges affect myanmar since the latest military crackdown in rakhine state began six weeks ago and turkey's president has described the u.s. decision to suspend most visa services for take your citizens as upsetting the
current standoff began with the arrest of a u.s. consular employee any some bull accused of links to last year's failed to cool an arrest warrant is also on for another u.s. consulate worker in taking. not to strain where the government insists the country will not be divided as the fate of its cost line region hangs in the balance the regional leader is expected to address the council on parliament later to say there is speculation he could announce a declaration of independence but spain's deputy prime minister has warned that madrid will act on any attempt to divide the country join a whole has more from wasilla. no matter which side of the independence debate one is on this is a sight a few in catalonia would welcome the national police drafted in after a supreme court ruling to guard the high court ahead of tuesday's address to parliament by the region's president carlos preached a moment it's a bit scary to see. it in the streets because i am used to see them.
used to see so many ways we actually see yes and now they're here. we have them on our doorstep and it's like feeling under siege. these police. have really hit us hard and it's hard and it's i think it's very bad here at the moment a spokesman for the squadron catalonians police force said it had no choice but to accept the supreme court ruling. we don't understand it at all we have been guardian disappear court of catalonia for the last twenty four years and there's never been any reason to doubt our service so we don't understand it and we don't like it but it is a judicial distraction so we accepted. the extremely unusual you might call it provocative site of spain's national police on guard outside this important
building in central barcelona is a reminder of just what sensitive times these are as this region and the whole of spain await a possible unilateral declaration of independence by catalonia on monday madrid again made it clear that an independence declaration would have immediate consequences. not. ready for any circumstances because we are already vaccinated against the fanaticism of most of them all and any hope that he will return to sanity and serenity therefore it's necessary to consider all possible options with worked on all of them one option is to use special constitutional powers to revoke ptolemy if that were to happen they'd be far more to worry about than the national police guard outside the high court jonah how al-jazeera barcelona. live not to sonya gago who's also in barcelona sonia a very crucial day then today talk us through what's going to be happening and how
are the two sides in this crisis preparing for today. well all eyes are on the castle on president catalyst jim wants as he begins to do you prepare for that all important address to parliament later on this evening and really this is turning out to be quite a crucial high point in what's been a week since that vote. that vote to hold the illegal referendum which spanish government says and really the tensions have not been abated by any means at all in fact they've only been ratcheted up higher by the. several steps that have been taken by either side the prime minister mariano rajoy the spanish prime minister has been making it perfectly clear that he is not willing to put up with anything and the government has really been clear to state that it will do everything possible including putting in extra law enforcement officials to try and
stop that from happening in the meanwhile the rhetoric from the catalan government side has been that this is something which they have been preparing for this is a matter of not just their own recognition of of independence but it's really a question of democracy which was also an argument that they were making ahead of the vote that was saying this is not a question this sort of independence but our right to vote but certain voices within the parliament have been pushing for mr would you want to make that outright declaration of independence while others have been really trying to temper the waters by saying perhaps this is not the right time even from mr preacher wants to own coalition party and they're saying that this is really to. embolden not unnecessary embolden but to wait too tense right now. to actually cause such a crisis within the region and the country the average amount is clearly and under a lot of pressure so now what will be the implications of catalonia declaring
independence from spain. when in fact hollywood already seeing some of that effect we've had several banks of multinational companies who've decided to move their legal headquarters from the region from barcelona to other parts of spain in preparation for this in the meantime as well the general prosecutor in spain is also saying that there are preparations being made to charge mr preach amount for sedition in for failing to prevent the vote from going ahead in effect going against the spanish government so there is this stage being set for this whether mr preacher man will back down from that is another and remains to be seen or he could easily go quote some kind of of symbolic form of of independence so they could start the way ahead front dialogue and negotiations go in boston and i thank you very much for that. nato is launching
a new multinational force in romania the move comes following fark the move comes after russia's twenty fourteen an accession of crimea from ukraine four thousand romanian troops will be supported by personnel from nine other nato countries moscow has accused nato of trying to encircled and threaten stability in eastern europe which nato denies do not mirroring what russia does so we're not mirroring russia playing by play in those shoulder by shoulder point by technical exercise by exercise we are responding in our way and we do it in a proportionate michoud and defensive way and we have to remember that of course you need to also always have follow on forces we have more forces than a nato response force but the whole of the you know with nato is to be so strong is to be so. united and so clear and coherent no messaging that no adversary tries to know our potential tries to attack nato poles or due to open in
