rights groups have insisted on outside monitors to safeguard the return of the rangar to me and mark but the un is expressing concern about the process we've had creationists to just start in two months more than six hundred thousand rangar fled to bangladesh from what the u.n. calls ethnic cleansing in me and my child stratford has more from. it's impossible to imagine the level of suffering that people like these have endured over recent months and indeed for decades now stories of men women and children being killed by the myanmar also stories of gang rape being committed by soldiers in the myanmar. stories that the myanmar government denies now this agreement between the bangladeshi and the myanmar government with respect to reprice relation implies the eventual return of these people to a country that they have some sort of legal citizenship status but of course they don't they lost their citizenship thirty five years ago in one thousand nine

to how long this repatriation will take it's hope that the process will start in about two months time the bangladesh foreign minister also says that myanmar has agreed that the u.n. h.c.r. the un will be involved in the process and it's aiming to set up temporary camps so people like these can live in the areas in which their homes were destroyed but the two main issues when you speak to the people here are issues of trust trust of the military and secondly citizenship will they eventually become citizens of the country for so long for so many generations they have called home stratford al-jazeera. planes carrying humanitarian aid have landed in yemen after a blockade lasting almost three weeks the resumption comes after relief groups the u.n. and other countries including the u.s.

will stop arming kurdish militias does not reflect in statements that have been have seen from both presidents met press offices they say that united states will be adjusting its policy when it comes to its allies in syria especially after the fall of ice and rock or turkey on the other hand has been calling for on the united states to stop arming these mainly kurdish fighters with turkey sees terrorists once the united states to be part of its campaign to try and clear the area of what it called all terrorist groups which include these kurdish militias which are allies of the united states as these statements come there is no end to the fighting on the ground inside syria but we have seen attacks by syrian government and its allies opposition positions rebel positions in not just the province of aleppo but also in the politics of. doctors and it workers have been telling us about the situation on the ground they say their infrastructure has been
systematically targeted by the regime and to save lives all they can do is dig tunnels and go underground. farmers on the operating table because his leg was injured in an airstrike but this is no ordinary operation theatre it's hidden underground so it will survive. i'm afraid when the regime targets a hospital i lost a member of my family in an airstrike. it's known as the cave hospital in northern third doctors are keeping its location secret for fear of further attacks by government get they showed us photos after some of the hundred thirty five yr strikes targeted their hospital medical facilities and medical workers nowadays are far from being working an ideal situation there are all sort of challenges one of the main challenges has to do with security they are witnessing not only has been ongoing for a long time but at the same time he doesn't. doesn't stop. this is what remains of
many hospitals above ground. it took months of digging five hundred square meters under the mountain to convert into treatment rooms workers then plaster the walls and sandbags at the entrance increased security. this is the doctor who began the project he was also killed in an airstrike last year and his colleagues continue to face challenges. the biggest problem is the airstrikes which target civilians this hospital is theoretically safe but we expect anything from the government and it's destructive weapons making the hospital safe is just one of the many challenges most hospitals in opposition areas suffer from a lack of medicine and other vital supplies to emergency exits in case of any attack being underground brings the constant challenge of maintaining the flow of fresh air so doctors and patients don't suffocate. we face
difficulties such as ventilation and shortages of medical supplies after securing ourselves in a cave inside a mountain because serious health care system has been largely destroyed by six years of war preventive care units and health centers are nonexistent potentially fatal diseases are common because of a lack of vaccine. healthcare is being used as a weapon of war in syria doctors say targeting hospitals means denial of treatment and the only option to save lives is going on the ground some of the job made out of there are. now protests spreading in pakistan after security forces launched an operation to clear a protest camp in the capital islamabad riot police moved in and threw tear gas canisters at the demonstrators who were supporters of a religious political party favorite occupying an intersection for three weeks ignoring the mounds to leave the area calling for the resignation of a minister who admitted a reference to the prophet muhammad in
a bill private television channels were ordered off the air during the crackdown. is near the eastern city of lahore and tomorrow you're on the highway between lahore and islamabad tell us how are things now under control by the security forces. on the contrary that situation is spiraling out of control across the country there are huge traffic jams because the protesters blocking point the motorway that leaned forward to islamabad it's completely standstill people are stuck on the roadside not knowing what to do there are entire families the airports. are suffering because people are not able to get to the airport or leave the airport there i head and pakistan that situation is indeed critical many people are saying that the government had mishandled the issue they were going to be ramifications from died particularly
security operation that started early in the morning we also have reports that a number of people have been killed across the country over one hundred people are wounded that is the early reports that we are getting the law minister's house has come under attack the former interior minister and how it had also come under attack or not very far from that video of a climb up the protests is growing we are told that they're making announcements throughout the religious end a mosque for people to come out against the government and this particular problem it seems is spiraling out of control. come out this began with a demand for a minister to resign do you get a feeling that people are coming out for other reasons which perhaps been bottled up for a while. well first of all this is a contentious issue because anything that relates to the prophet or blasphemy laws
that are very sensitive issues people are emotionally charged they're blaming the government for deliberately trying to change the laws which were non muslims to become members of parliament. and dad of course. strong reaction from the public it's no longer the law minister is resignation even if you're a line these people are not going to stay quiet in fact they're now trading their day will march on the farm and i watch jerry he of course after his disqualification i've been holed up at his residence on the outskirts of the hall and these people are now threatening house tomorrow that situation is critical we are told there are certain dead bodies along this particular motorway have been put on the main roads they were killed in police action and of course that showed that they showed two asian it indeed quite critical of the military chief has also told
the country's prime minister mr garner bochy that change should immediately tried to problem as peacefully as possible but at the same time the military is likely to stay out of this political make. no doubt come back to you later for an update on that. whole thing on an escalating situation. now opinion is divided among people now mixing with refugees on an island at the center of a dispute in papua new guinea some are wired about how they're integrate into life on manna silent the refugees have protested for weeks against their removal from a decommissioned prison camp fearing for their safety andrew thomas reports internationally the words man of silence conjure thoughts of banished refugees but they're not the only ones who live here the island is big and has a population close to sixty thousand most people are spread out living in small villages in the interior or along the coast but six thousand live here in the
islands only town lauren gallo is also now home to about seven hundred refugees most moved here against their will on friday they say they wanted to stay in their former prison the spite of having to live on rainwater and smuggled in food because they did not think they'd say in town most local cop when you give you say that fear is misplaced money people are very accommodating people that love being. inclusive people but others have concerns about hundreds of men from very different cultures certainly living among them. is just men only in the way they come on ladies they find if we don't let it be on a big. issue do you feel the need of every leader. and then they may cause a problem with the local leadership that's not concerned though but necessarily so hostility walking around this market in daytime fails to meet a pretty sight but then i'm only here for a short time and i'm not
a refugee from the middle east africa or south asia or things they say a very different some refugees chose to leave the prison and move to lauren months even two years ago to keep occupied so i just hussein worked as a receptionist at the guesthouse but he's not paid refugees aren't allowed paid work and despite being much better integrated the most he says the town for refugees isn't safe one month there will be a good end. on my neck. if i didn't deal with the. many refugees have similar stories drunk young men attack them among locals most have sympathy for the refugees but think it's time they move on or were moved on they should have gone and they belong to a different culture a different world different language. for how this is to look we should have won by
now the refugees feel the same way andrew thomas al-jazeera on madison and in papua new guinea. it's international day for the elimination of violence against women this hour live pictures coming in from a rally in paris a similar scenes in rome as well france's president says it's one of his priorities and i know micron's announce a series of measures aimed at tackling sexual violence. has more from paris. the president has been stressing that the main thing they're gone cause of his five year term will be equality between men and women and he says that the first thing that needs to be tackled in that area is gender based violence sexual assault and sexual harassment he held a minute's silence for one hundred twenty three women who were killed last year by their partners and then he went on to explain just why it's so important for him
listen to mom the feeling of horror and of shame resulting from the situation is i must say has taken specific importance since a little more than a year ago because it is shame that we talk about when one is at the same time a man and a public decider i cannot consider that we're talking about today is something that was boring but now and except. now everybody was waiting to see what concrete proposals president. would put forward he did say that there were many areas to be worked on in education for example training teachers to help pupils to get rid of stereotypes which can lead to gender based violence along the line and also strengthening police responses and. putting more resources into helping victims he did outline that in legislation that he's been going to put forward next year there will be a new offense basically of street harassment which can be punishable on the spot he
also intends to extend the length of time that victims of sexual violence can take the. filing a complaint from twenty years to thirty years so that if a woman was the victim of an assault when she was a minor she has thirty years to come forward and file a complaint he says that budgets are being increased between ministries by thirteen percent next year how quickly that will start to make a difference is hard to tell and virtuous means by big tobacco will be back in the us media from sunday but the knowledge you think these ads were ordered by the court to warn of the dangers of smoking habitants who reports smoking is highly addictive these messages will air in prime time for one year on major u.s. television networks along with adverts in fifty newspapers. radio and t.v. ads promoting cigarettes were banned in one nine hundred seventy but the new
adverts should have added years ago they were ordered in two thousand and six after a big tobacco was found to have misrepresented and deceived the american public about the effects of smoking by a federal judge they brought appeal after appeal after appeal and contesting every issue they could think of to try to delay the time when they would actually have to be forced to tell the truth to the american people. campaigners are skeptical as to the difference these ads will make partly because the media has changed so much over the last decade most us smokers begin as teenagers but now less than five percent of network t.v. viewers are under twenty five also the trumpet ministration is filled with those who once worked for or received large sums from big tobacco infamously vice president mike penn's once wrote an editorial that accepted the dangers of smoking yet asserted time for a quick reality check despite the hysteria from the political class and the media
smoking doesn't kill so this is a general no francisco one successfully argued in court against printing the telephone number for a service to help smokers quit on cigarette packets on behalf of tobacco company r.j. reynolds president trumps nominee to oversee chemical safety at the environmental protection agency took money from big tobacco to promote research that downplayed the effects of secondhand smoke we cannot afford to have to back up policy being being made by the lawyers for the tobacco industry. the proportion of u.s. adults who smoke is now fifteen percent it was forty two percent in the sixty's however due to population growth that still represents thirty six and a half million people in addition in low income areas the proportion of smokers can reach thirty seven percent cigarette taxes remain low in many states political donations from big tobacco are plentiful which helps explain why big tobacco still views the u.s. as a growth market the world's largest tobacco profit pool outside of china in the words
