5:20 pm
a general election ireland wields a tremendous amount of political clout over breaks it talks at the moment they say that they will veto the possibility of negotiations going to the next level all important trade talks with the brussels until ireland has a clear cut idea of what will happen to the border between the republic of ireland and northern ireland a part of the u.k. there's a border that seen decades of bloodshed in the past nobody wants to see the return of a hard border nobody wants to see the resurgence of old sectarian tensions once again the last thing anybody here wanted was the political instability that comes with the general election and it looks very merrily right at the last minute as if that has now been averted. how the world's most vulnerable fleeing war and poverty back home are being abused and optioned as slaves the shocking danger facing migrants and refugees in libya the u.n.
5:21 pm
refugee agency chief is briefing the security council and it's holding an emergency meeting called by france over slavery has been reported hundreds of people are being auctioned in modern day slave markets in libya for as little as four hundred dollars libya as the main transit hub for refugees and migrants trying to reach southern europe by sea they're coming from nigeria eritrea guinea ivory coast gambia senegal sudan and somalia and the power vacuum in libya after the fall of moammar gadhafi has made human trafficking and people smuggling smuggling a booming trade in the european union's renewed strategy to stop migrants and refugees traveling across the mediterranean has led to more people being stuck in libya without money or food mike hanna is at the united nations headquarters in new york so mike why is is france calling this debate now.
5:22 pm
well actually that's a good question a week ago today the u.n. security council are cast a resolution condemning this a slave trade in libya however france clearly felt that this was not enough along with some other members so it is called again this emergency session which is taking place at the moment france making clear that it wants to push things a little bit further wants to discuss exactly how to end this trade what kind of punitive measures should be taken against those individuals and entities responsible for what it describes as these barbaric acts and crimes against humanity this is what the outgoing president of the security council and french ambassador had to say i would say the two goals of this meeting is. number one for the whole security council to be aware. in the face of the world
5:23 pm
of the tragedy. that is happening there and also to express security council unified opposition against such despicable practices that shock the conscience of the world that's number one awareness and. unify the position of the security council and the second goal of the meeting . used to work on the most efficient responses to effectively deal with such as chords. well once again what you are seeing here is something that is focusing tightly on libya and the slave trade there but there's something far greater than this the secretary general in addressing the security council meeting a week ago made very clear that this is a developmental issue that the issue of slave trade in libya is just the peak of
5:24 pm
what is happening way underneath and it's these issues that need to be addressed along with the a media task of dealing with the slave trade that has bee witnessed within libya. so talk a little bit more about that then mike i mean as you say this this this discussion was ostensibly about the slave trade but what are the issues in this wider context . well what you're looking at essentially is a perfect storm leading to complete human degree dacian on the one hand you have a continent that in many areas is engaged in stride if you have the operations of entities like i saw you have. you have all sorts of mini wars a major wars going on along with poverty drought climate change this is creating this massive flux of forced migration throughout the continent it's also leading to
5:25 pm
the way of refugees libya is a major exit point for refugees from throughout the continent but then on the other side what you have as you mentioned in the introduction is restrictions from the european union on the entry of migrants all refugees into europe generally now this is creating the blockade the perfect storm that i referred to which allows things like the slave trade in libya to happen as the secretary general said while focusing on the slave trade in libya attention also has to be paid to the underlying causes and also how the wider world deals with this problem problem of forced migration and refugees mike hanna live for us there at u.n. headquarters in new york. now amnesty international says it's obtained internal documents they say point to an oil giant's complicity in crimes committed by the nigerian military during the one nine hundred ninety s. the report which shows that shell and the nigerian government operated as business

5:27 pm
throughout this period the company was encouraging. the the nigerian military government and the military unit involved to take action against these protesters even after the company knew what was likely to happen i just want to give you one concrete example we one of the documents that we've we've got is a shell internal memo dated the third of march one thousand nine hundred ninety four and this memo authorized the payment of around nine hundred dollars to a military commander and shell explains that this payment is partly for a sustained favorable this position toward shell in future assignments in other words this payment was partly for future assignments now just days before this payment was made this military commander who received the nine hundred dollars had opened fire on unarmed protesters outside the front gate of shell's headquarters in
5:28 pm
port harcourt and months later was responsible for the brutal crackdown in ago and that's one example of many that we have. a spokesperson for shell in nigeria has provided a statement to al-jazeera saying we have always denied in the strongest possible terms the allegations made in this tragic case he goes on to say amnesty international's allegations are false and without merit shell did not collide with the authorities to suppress community unrest and in no way encouraged or advocated any act of violence in nigeria. now a leftist television host is on course for a surprise victory in honduras his presidential election salvador has almost a five point lead over incumbent when orlando hernandez endorses one of the poorest nations in south america and it has the highest murder rates in the world. an erupting volcano is keeping indonesians on eggshells stranding thousands of
