refugees have fled from myanmar to bangladesh escaping from a military offensive rights groups and the un have accused the army of atrocities allegations the military denies and speak to hide melusine young gone at the home of the archbishop that's where the pope will be ahead it made to scott the pope has been vocal about the plight of the rohingya in myanmar even before this recent violence and the refugee crisis how easy expected to handle it on this trip is it it's going to be very tricky isn't it. that certainly for you know we're at the archbishop's house this is where the pope spending the next three nights we're hearing that it might have landed here in yangon at the airport we don't know if he's actually on the road here but behind me you can see a lot of people have gathered on the streets here in yangon and particularly here in front of the archbishop's house where the pope will eventually make his way over here probably all taking maybe twenty twenty five minutes once he gets on the road we know that he's probably landed we're not we can't confirm that just yet but it's
10:03 am
going to be interesting as you said probably over the next three days while these here and it's a very delicate tightrope political tightrope that he's going to have to walk because of all these very sensitive issues here here's a look at all those issues. roman catholic leader pope francis has been an advocate for refugees and the oppressed around the world previously he called the muslim or hindu good and peaceful people tortured and killed simply because of their faith during his visit the main focus will be on their plight but many will also be focused on whether the pope actually calls them . something the catholic leadership in myanmar has advised him against. there are six hundred fifty thousand catholics in myanmar that's less than two percent of the country's population which is overwhelmingly buddhist. a member of unsung suchi is ruling party explains why they don't want the pope to use the word. we do not accept the temora hinge and they are bengalis muslims from bangladesh so we would
10:04 am
like to request that he use the official term it if the tape uses the ten you have to show you that it's an insult to. one bishop from a remote pocket of catholics in chin state is hopeful the visit will go smoothly. and i might be some differences of opinion between the pope and the government but since he's been invited to this country i'm sure they will be understanding a growing list of nations and international bodies are calling the military crackdown on the right ethnic cleansing something myanmar rejects visiting both sides of the crisis the pope will meet military and civilian leaders here in myanmar who also hold a large mass and young dawn the nation's largest city. then later in the week he'll travel to bangladesh where hundreds of thousands of refugees are sheltering with plans to meet a group of and the country's leadership catholics from across myanmar traveling
10:05 am
here to yangon to see their cope some trips taking days by road and by rail and some sleeping outside just so they can be here. i'm ok with the fact that he's coming for everyone in the country not only for christians. our country is not there are many conflicts. we need development i hope he's going to help bring development high hopes for the pope's first visit to myanmar. in which he will need to not only bring the message of peace from a religious leader but channel the abilities of an artful diplomat. so scott the pope has landed in young gone what's his schedule going to be in the coming days one of the biggest challenges. will today's really doesn't it is a rest is going to be i suppose we hear a rest day and then on tuesday afternoon he'll travel today for this nation's capital will meet with military leaders who meet with civilian leaders will give
10:06 am
a speech at a conference center there will come back to the end on tuesday then wednesday morning there's going to be a big mass here in yangon at the stadium that's going to be the biggest public event if you will that's where most people will come in some of those people that we saw in that. they've come to yangon exactly for that then thursday morning prayer service we know that he's going to meet with ethnic groups who meet with different religious groups and then he's going to head on to bangladesh where obviously this is the other side of the crisis and we'll probably be meeting with a group of britons or refugees in dhaka in the capital there and also meet with the leadership of that nation is locally. thank you very much for that scott highlight for us in young on where the pope has just arrived on his first visit to myanmar we'll keep following that story for you throughout the day here on al-jazeera moving on to other world news now and a government minister at the center of widespread anger in pakistan has resigned signaling a victory for protests. they've
10:07 am
called off the three week sit in by thousands of people in the capital is been demanding stepped down over the wording of a parliamentary oath they have described as blasphemous the protests have spread throughout pakistan closing down major highways let's speak to zain. so zain the protesters have gotten what they want what happens next. well the leader of this of this movement if we can call it that has just been speaking in the last hour and how the hussein rizvi the leader of the bank is this little known burgeoning political party is known as he spoke and he told his his supporters that they've had a hard three weeks and they've lost lives of supporters and of fellow. brothers in this movement and things have been difficult for them but they have gotten what
10:08 am
they wanted but that's not the end of their demands they also have pushed for an investigation into why this mission of the prophets name in the oath for elected officials happened in the first place so the government has committed to investigating itself. and the other thing that they demanded is the release of people who were arrested during these demonstrations and they say they will not rest unless those demands are met and what we are seeing now is a thinning of the crowd and it will probably take the whole day to have these people return to their homes they've come from all over the country from several different provinces and what we are seeing is buses and trucks and trains being arranged to now slowly help these people return to their homes but what has happened here is definitely a watershed moment for what is not a very developed political group and this is become a common way to to seize any sort of power in pakistan and get anything done be a destructive force on the streets lay siege to islamabad effectively by choking
10:09 am
off a main artery and then making political demands and it's something that the supporters of this organization as well as rivals in the upcoming elections next year will be watching closely and to tell us more about this but. the saying what more do we know about it and its leader. well the man at the center of a card in the center is he was a cleric in lahore he was particularly conservative and very hardline and for a lot of his very divisive views the religious body that governs the clerics and the whore did actually kick him out and that happened after he made very public statements in support of montana's qadri the man who. shot and killed the police officer who shot and killed his the man he was supposed to be guarding the governor of punjab at the time some on last year in two thousand and eleven and so that was also having to do with with the issue of blasphemy in the country something that is
10:10 am
is is is a very very touchy subject for many people here who see any questioning of the prophet or or or the religion or or anything that would challenge the pie. in a sea of the majority view on islam as as a threat and so that's where he got his rise and became an outspoken figure and he contested the last elections in lahore for a national assembly seat he came in third behind. a stunning list the party of the former prime minister of russia as well as iran on the critter turned politician his political party. came in second and this gentlemen's party mr aziz party came in third so not a very powerful political force but one that is on the scene and they do plan. to contest the next election and they hope or bigger outcome but this really is a situation where just thousands of people were able to bring cities of millions to
10:11 am
a standstill and that just gives you a sense of how political campaigning or the political campaigning season begins here in pakistan. in islamabad thank you very much for that zain. and syria funerals have been held for some of the people killed in russian and government has strikes over the weekend mourners buried the dead in there is a province on monday at least fifty five people were killed in russian strikes targeting eisel in the countryside another twenty five people were killed in as strikes in the rebel held enclave of eastern go to on the outskirts of damascus the region has been besieged by the government since twenty thirteen as strikes have been intensifying even as more talks in geneva on tuesday this is a u.n. that process is aimed at bringing six years of war in syria to an end it's led by the u.n. special envoy stefan the mistura has managed to bring the syrian government and opposition to the table in the past but us failed to get any agreement syria's main
10:12 am
opposition group the height negotiation committee or agency says it will be in geneva and has no preconditions it will have a new person at the helm after former heads riyadh his job quit last week. that resignation came on the same day president bashar assad made a rare trip out of syria to meet russian press present that may protein in sochi this will be the eighth round of talks in geneva previous attempts have stalled because a bitter disagreements mainly over whether assad should stay in power andrew tabler is a syria fayez analyst and senior fellow at the washington institute for near east policy he says he's not surprised by the resumption of strikes ahead of the next round of geneva talks. oftentimes when we go to towards negotiations seemingly sealed agreements are not see old. it's also hard to predict the activities of the regime the interesting thing is the russian involvement and they're one of the sponsors it's what we can see but it's not a good sign and it's
10:13 am
a bit of deja vu. in the process the russians and iranians in the regime are using military force to shape the diplomatic process and that's. you know a very good tactic in terms of getting results in many many hours they're willing to escalate or able to do so and the problem for the united states and so i said there are unwilling to escalate and that's the reason why russia and the regime are doing this and i'm afraid. and update on the world weather is now headed as kenya waits for its president to be someone back into office we look at how the contested election battle has hurt the economy and zimbabweans wait to see what their new iraq really means as the president prepares to announce his cabinet statistics.

10:18 am
grace mugabe for the presidency in replacing her husband he is up on a series of charges corruption charges dating back more than a decade but he's accused of big time fraud and also misuse of his government position also. chip rangar who is the former head of the use of the p.f. he's also before the court both men arrived at a large prison truck which was a school to the front and back by spy the army and now this case is really heralds a key point in terms of a clear operation a corruption campaign which is being mounted by god well and he has been all weekend pouring through details and planning his cabinet announcement not necessarily going to happen on monday but we believe as every likelihood it will the key point to that is really who will replace the finance minister because
10:19 am
that's going to be a very important post along with many others and there are question marks about how he will put out a signal that he is going to be back free democratic rule that is really big question mark how will he do that will he bring in new. all god a lot of people fear he will many are saying that the honeymoon is over but the m.d.c. the main opposition party is accusing him of really just coming up with the same sort of talk that zanu p.f. has made in the past promises that are followed up with action we'll see a lot is being planned by this new president however he has a lot to get over in terms of his reputation his past he has a c.v. that's very similar to mugabe who is as he says was his mentor effectively like a father so it's going to be an important day no doubt whatsoever the start of a really important week for zimbabweans thank you very much for that anderson is
