refugees about four hundred people are refusing to leave the former strain one facility which was closed last month they say they fear being attacked by local people with bad it was bush on iraq gee on the island gave us details of that police raid. in immigration law if you turn on so many pressure for thirty dollars any time the present come. attack then. a lot of refugees are small enough comfort to see you they are. on the floor they are fine but the aggression often turns on to the police and they are destroying everything all of belonging to the bunker. destroying. you know our shells. they are talking with people treating people then you must move this prison come on the refugees is refusing to

6:05 am
the good things done by zimbabwe's first leader will be forgotten to start paying for use blood in all sorts of names i think protests of the highest order. long live the spirit of liberation respect to the africans. the incumbent to also take up the torch in order. that spirit of liberation when i got glasses he knows and have high expectations they know he is a businessman some here say that gives them hope he has realistic plans on how to rebuild the broken economy. is the managing editor of one hundred radio that's a zimbabwean online station based in the u.k. he says the country may not change as much as people want i think the problem we have we have a situation with managed to reinvent itself is like zanu p.f. is a snake that is managed to shed off its skin the skin is more but it remains
6:06 am
a snake if it feels threatened it will bite so i think this is the problem for a lot of people this man has been friends and allies with mugabe for over fifty years that's half a century so i'm reminded of how i remained in power in two thousand and eight it was the same with the help from the army we secured. a violent election so it is the same person who has been able to remove mugabe so here's the problem if the army have intervened now to secure the presidency what happens next year when the opposition wins elections will the army allow an opposition president to take over having stated clearly in the past that they will not salute anyone who has not fought the war. the u.s. secretary of state has issued his strongest condemnation yet to treatment of range him calling it ethnic cleansing rex tillerson visited me in my last week but

6:08 am
a very complex issue you're talking about over six hundred thousand people that me and my government said that they want that to be voluntary repatriation but there are also other issues outside of documentation it's also about safety what conditions will those refugees who do come back will be facing in rakhine state so obviously many issues to go through but right now we're hearing there are indications from both sides that they hope to have some kind of memo of understanding after this meeting on thursday or possibly even by friday now survivors of europe's worst massacre since the second world war i celebrating a verdict by the international criminal tribunal for the former yugoslavia judges of sentence the form above military come on iraq come luggage to life in prison he was convicted for his role in the murder of eight thousand muslim men and boys in the town of shrub and nine hundred ninety five the bulk of reports from the hague. the chamber finds rocks comin out each guilty as a member of various strong criminal enterprises of the following cones count to

. prime minister hariri has put his resignation on hold after returning home from saudi arabia he's back in beirut suddenly resigning and more than two weeks ago in the country and to political uncertainty. he came home to take part in independence day celebrations eighteen days after announcing his resignation in saudi arabia it was the first time saddam had eaten has been back in beirut since that unexpected announcement and. he was received as a prime minister and warmly greeted by the president who publicly accused saudi arabia of forcing her to resign and preventing him from leaving the country the saudis said they feared for his life back home. did say he would clarify his political position once back in lebanon and it seems a compromise deal has been worked out how d.d. suspended his resignation to allow for further consultations. i presented
6:15 am
today my resignation to president and he urged me to wait before offering it and to hold on to it for more dialogue about its reasons a political background and i agreed. represents one of two major alliances in lebanon on the pro saudi camp hundreds of his supporters gave him a hero's welcome outside his home many lebanese from across the political divide believed he was being used by saudi arabia as a pawn in their attempt to target iran and that him and his family were held as hostages there how did he has a national unity government that includes his political opponent the pro iranian hezbollah the prime minister has long demanded hezbollah this arms and ends its military interventions in arab countries. that is a proxy state it's caught in the middle of a regional power struggle and it's in the pendants has long been open to question.
6:16 am
the crisis that began with had it is resignation was widely seen as having been forced on the prime minister by saudi arabia to counter iranian influence in lebanon. i'm here with you and we will continue onwards together so we can be the line of defense for lebanon and for the stability of lebanon this gathering today is going to be repeated you will see me visit every part of lebanon how did they say how long he's willing to put his resignation on hold political differences between the rival alliances are longstanding and unlikely to be a result on his decision to stay in office maybe more of a result of mediation efforts by world leaders to put lebanon's latest political crisis on hold. russia's president vladimir putin has told his turkish iranian counterparts there's a real chance of ending the war in syria speaking at three way talks putin said he believed
6:17 am
a new stage been reached in the conflict challenge reports in the black sea resort . the war in syria is nearly over said the three presidents meeting in sochi now it's time to rebuild the shattered country. putin thinks a plan he's been pushing for weeks now is gaining momentum through their training. i am satisfied by the fact that the presidents of iran and turkey have supported an initiative to hold an all syrian forum a congress of national dialogue in syria the crebain driven initiative aims to bring a broad spectrum of syrian government opposition and civil society groups to sochi in early december to plan for the country's future. and join me in calling we have all talked about oppositions all three countries have spoken in favor of convening this congress of national dialogue. but the president has been telling
6:18 am
putin he won't. except kurdish groups linked to the p.k. k. being there and turkey's president still seems lukewarm on the idea. of them as we human are let me agree with president putin and he said we need to build on the momentum achieved as we talked together with mr rouhani we agreed that we need to extend our ties in all the areas. even less enthusiastic is the syrian opposition group the h n c which says it refuses to discuss the future of syria outside of the un's geneva framework at an opposition conference beginning in the saudi capital riyadh early indications are that groups will keep their insistence asaad must go despite pressure to compromise with his plan for a congress of national dialogue russia seems keen to shake the political future of syria much like it's already shapes the conflict if putin successful this will be
6:19 am
to the benefits of his ally asaad and yet again the dreams of the opposition will suffer rory tallinn's al-jazeera sortie let's go back to our top story we brought you earlier the police raid on a refugee camp and men are silent and pumping again a al-jazeera as under thomas joins us live from there now under what more can you tell us. well daryn just in the last three minutes three bus loads of refugees have passed us on the only road to the prison which is over the water there behind me now we know that the place went in morning on state papa new guinea in time about four or five hours ago now the accounts we hear of what happened very refugee say that they use force or violence against them in the place say they didn't they only destroyed property and they were just trying to incentivize if you like the refugees to leave but in the course of that we heard that fifty or sixty men were taken by the place i think that those that we just saw passing along the road right here just in the last three or four minutes where
6:20 am
those men the first bus contains refugees and one of them leaned out of the window and said help help us the second one had a man who went out and said some insulting things about australia but this is all a very live situation and i'm joined here by tim costello who's a well known humanitarian and you're working for the australian council for international development and you've been here since yesterday you were told thursday that you as the independent judge of what was going on were going to get access to that center it didn't happen did it tell me what did happen thursday morning well what happened tuesday morning was a sense that something was brewing in an action was going to happen and it could if you was announced kids in the school because of the village in the naval base stay home all the residents stay home. the extension of the cold and so melanesian families the pain gee families have been smuggling on water food and water into them because they hospitable generous they say they don't have family here they didn't have land here we got to help them that cotton was tight and the squeeze was
6:21 am
put on and now we've just seen the reason why they were moving people. straightening for you you wanted to get to see what conditions were like inside that prison or being a former prison i should say you weren't able to do that how frustrating is it to be stood right here and not really know what's going on inside because a leader of civil society in australia where you have democratic rights and rule of law given that this is a stranger's responsibility every pay injury from the highest down to the lowest says this wasn't a problem we actually did the right thing by a stranger a favor now they've just washed their hands and war as an australian to come in and not be able to even see what is being done in our name leaves me deeply ashamed of the restasis conflict between what the refugees inside us saying on social media because they have access to that and they talk about a polling station but they feel worse in the village about half an hour from here and australian politicians peter dutton the prime minister of us people the immigration minister these refugees you just look at their perfect because it's
6:22 am
going to seize in town have you seen those specifics he's telling the truth well the truth is halfway between the facilities will be ready maybe in three or four weeks i went yesterday and i can say as you and i actually are saying they're not ready yet. the problem isn't that they won't finally be ready the problem is the thirtieth of october deadline came straight in government knew it was coming and they literally walked away without actually having them ready the facilities will be fine but they're not ready secondly for these refugees i know they're going to be forgotten once they're out of here you're not going to come in the media is not going to come they've had for years of being forgotten and maybe it's going to happen again i think thank you very much well this is i think fast moving situation as i say we've just seen what looked to me about sixty refugees taken away in buses we assume to the local town of long ago although what will happen to them is very unclear whether they'll be held by the place the military here whether they'll be put in this so-called alternative accommodation and that's what happens to about
6:23 am
the three hundred fifty we think other refugees inside that prison will again that very much up in the air at this stage are to under thomas their own man asylum and pop and again a hundred thank you. now the saudi led coalition has announced it will reopen yemen's main international airport on the vital seaport of had dated to let in humanitarian aid ports were closed to weeks ago after who the rebels find a missile at the saudi capital riyadh about seven million people depend entirely on through their aid in yemen struggling to deal with the famine the world's worst outbreak of cholera. now leading palestinian political factions including hamas and fatah have agreed to hold elections by the end of next year the group's made the joint statement following reconciliation talks in cairo last month hamas agreed to cede powers in gaza to the palestinian authority in a deal mediated by egypt. the french president says the u.n. security council should consider sanctions on libya if it does not act on human trafficking and condemned the auctioning of refugees as
