7:15 am
under their control fighters got the order to move south towards daters or i sells last area of control in syria. and advance that is likely to put the kurds on a collision course with the syrian army which is also launching an offensive from the southwest to capture the oil rich province the two have recently been competing to expand their military gains in iraq and there was over the counter rocket is a major setback for either which is now trying to hold ground in a vast desert area on the border with iraq by losing for thailand's and iraq as a starting point for its self declared islamic state. amnesty international has accused me and mar security forces of killing hundreds of men women and children during
7:16 am
a systematic campaign to expel retention muslims from rakhine state hundreds of thousands of rancher have fled to neighboring bangladesh and that is sparked a major humanitarian crisis amnesty is urging the global community to take action against what it calls crimes against humanity when he reports the exodus continues this drone footage was shot on monday by the united nations refugee agency u.n.h.c.r. it shows range of cram down to muddy banks after fleeing me and across the net to bangladesh and misty international says there are escaping crimes against humanity being committed by the me and military it says security forces are carrying out a systematic organized and ruthless campaign against the ring. based on interviews with victims and witnesses amnesty says soldiers are raping murdering and burning their way through villages in northern rakhine states the accusations of backed up by recent arrivals in bangladesh spoken to by al jazeera. i am now security
7:17 am
forces are burning all our villages and killing our people which is why escaped to bang the danish they are taking all real hinge a man into forced labor camps making them work without pay and beating them up they also looting our livestock and goods if we protest they beat us and even kill us. this round of violence began in august when running jet fighters attacked government security posts the response from security forces was a so-called clearance operation that they said came to an end on the fifth of september. but latest satellite images show the burning has continued according to human rights watch the village at the top of this picture was intact after september the fifth now it's completely torched below it is a buddhist village that's been left untouched. me and my government says it will investigate what's happening in rakhine state which the united nations calls ethnic
7:18 am
cleansing it also says it will begin a process of verification and repatriation soon but for so many who continue to flee there is nothing to go back to and no faith in what the government says when hey al jazeera china's ruling communist party has kicked up its biggest political event and most of congress have gathered for the nineteenth session in beijing to choose the country's future leadership and is keynote speech president she says although china's prospects are bright the challenges are severe. banks here. when their eyes right now about the situation at home and abroad are only are going profound and complex changes the prospects for china are great but there are also severe challenges ahead all members of the party must look ahead and be vigilant be courageous and stay innovative. correspondent adrian brown joins us live from. age three and he spoke for three hours or so so you have the task of kind of
7:19 am
wailing that town rested elsewhere the highlights are. well guess what he's still talking and i guess that proves that the chinese president is in good physical health he has covered a whole range of subjects and of course a lot has happened in china during the past five years these i think with a kind of stand out issues for me he said that socialism with chinese characteristics would continue that is a mantra that of course was coined by dung sharping who was responsible for the open door policy back in the early eighty's and of course that was a mantra you heard when i covered this congress exactly twenty five years ago so in that sense nothing is changed he also said that the controversial anti corruption campaign that he began shortly after he became president in two thousand and twelve will continue now that anti corruption crusade has so far snared more than one
7:20 am
point four million party members so the party behind me has really been through a to moche us time during the past few years and you know she jinping is determined to make this party fit for purpose he also spoke out about taiwan warning months more that china was opposed to all forms of independence that of course is a direct reference to the growing independent sentiment that you find in taiwan now he also i think also wanted to stress and demonstrate that you know the party while it's had problems it remains united and unity really was a recurring theme in his address in many ways richelle i don't think it's what president xi was saying today that matters it's the context in which this is happening because in many ways this congress is all about president xi jinping he is not just president let's remind ourselves he's also general. secretary of the party and chairman of the military commission and it's possible the by the end of
7:21 am
this congress he will have a new title also we have been told that the constitution is going to be amended in a major way and the thinking is that we could see sheeting pings political ideas political thoughts become the party's guiding ideology in the future now that happens it's very significant because it would put xi jinping on a par with chairman mao who of course led the communists to victory sixty eight years ago so you sense that in many ways this is a congress you know laden with history sheeting playing i think is not really looking forward to the next few years he's looking forward to the next fifteen and twenty years and now i think probably has the party behind him in that respect. and with the issues you've laid out i guess it's understandable that it's still going on three hours talking adrian brown live in beijing thank you. the president has declared the southern city of our warrior liberated after
