very warm welcome to the program the u.n. security council is holding a briefing on the libyan slavery crisis evidence has a march the hundreds of people have been all questioned in modern day slave markets in libya for as little as four hundred dollars libya is the main transit hub for refugees and migrants attempting to reach southern europe by sea well cross live to the u.n. in just a moment but first this report from bernard smith. this is not where these migrants want to be heading back to the african continent thanks to a from the italian government to reinforce libya's coast guard it's helped cut the number of migrants arriving in italy two hundred twenty two thousand in the last three months it's the lowest total for four years but people trafficking networks in libya continue to flourish because of government chaos as rival groups battle for power. these are repatriated to the ivory coast from libya so they risk being
sold into slavery oh it's not really about this so africans over there in libya they sell men even fifteen year old libyans are there in a car they're armed the coming kidnap you and the cell you for seventy two one hundred fifty dollars and then others will resell you think they're going to leave soon as you arrive in libya the first thing that happens is that you are taken away and sold our black brothers from west africa wherever you are from a million a cynical ease or any other nationality from the west even ibori and you are sold and for what seven hundred dollars. but these margins will tell you that life is so hard in their home country that it's worth almost any risk to make a new start in europe now with the advent of the smartphone and with facebook and others pushing into africa a youngster can meet a smuggler in two seconds on the phone now that nothing is being done to challenge that they think they're following a dream to europe they end up in the mall in the grip of these repay shoes smuggler despite increased patrols the u.n.
says more than one hundred sixty thousand people have made it across the mediterranean to york this year about three thousand have drowned on bernard smith al jazeera mike hanna is that the u.n. headquarters for us in new york hi there mike so in a country like libya essentially a failed state mike what can the u.n. do. well this is one of the root causes of the problem of slave selling within libya itself the security council meeting now underway discussing that not only are they looking at the immediate problem and that is the selling of slaves but also about the circumstances the context in which this happens as you mentioned libya very much a failed state and has been so good on fees overthrow back in two thousand and eleven rival groups competing for power and in that vacuum you do have a scenario where the vulnerable are at immense risk and those fundable are those
who coming through libya from other parts of africa some ninety percent of refugees and forced migrants go to europe or attempt to get to europe through libya so it is an absolute crucible of movement in the african continent which itself is a consequence of poverty of ongoing conflict so all of these issues need to be addressed in order to deal with the ultimate problem the problem that is central to security council deliberations in the course of this morning and that is the question of slave trafficking and like what about sanctions could they provide part and some answer. well france which is called the some urgency session says that sanctions is one of the options that must be considered sanctions against individuals who are responsible for the slave track of him and entities that allow it to happen but the french ambassador briefing before the security council meeting
began also said that all elements of international law should be used to compete to deal with this problem for example he said using the international criminal court to go against those perpetrators to use every single element of vailable to the un security council the question of sanctions is a tricky one it is known and russia for example has made very clear that it is opposed to the ad hoc use of sanctions the one thing the security council wants to do on this issue is maintain absolute unity throwing sanctions into the equation at this particular stage may strike a blow at that sense of unity that the security council truly needs we will be hearing in coming days on going discussion about what measures will be taken there will be a statement likely today after the security council meeting but no concrete measures yet will be announced this will take days possibly weeks of discussion to come to
an agreement to then have a unified security council meeting in terms of addressing firstly the immediate problem of slave trafficking but also the wider issues that create the vacuum in when in which it exists and can either live from the united nations mike thank you . kenya's president who or kenya has urged his divided nation to move on from months of political upheaval after being sworn in for a second term his inauguration ceremony follows a violent enjoyment election process which included two disputed post says calling on all leaders to serve the nation regardless of political affiliation and says he will dedicate all of his energy to building unity and nationhood. today is the one hundred twenty third day since we began on august eighth

a strong defender of the fed's policy to lower interest rates by increasing the supply of dollars the problems that some commentators protect predicted have not come to pass accommodative policy did not generate high inflation or excessive credit growth rather it helped restore full employment and return inflation closer to the two percent goal. in fact he's joined many experts to catholics plain why inflation is actually remained so low despite one of the longest growth streaks in u.s. history with still no recession yet in sight trump hasn't explained his decision to deny a second term to outgoing chairwoman janet yellen he called her excellent in the job despite being part of barack obama's legacy so market analysts expect her successor to maintain a steady course i think powell would be the closest thing to monetary policy status quo as you can get short of our next two renominating yellen but i think powell is
the base case not yellen because trump has to be seen as a disruptor and an agent of change thank you again for this extraordinary opportunity to serve the american people thank god if the economy does show signs of overheating next year powell and the fed may see no choice but to step up the pace of raising the cost of borrowing money tom ackerman al-jazeera washington. yes president donald trump has been accused of using a racial slur during a white house event honoring native american war veterans day why did a democratic party senator as pocahontas and nickname native americans have previously described as offensive and distasteful kristen salumi reports. the event was to honor native american veterans but president donald trump couldn't resist the opportunity to criticize a political rival use the name of a native american hero in front of a portrait of president andrew jackson who is known for forcefully removing natives
from their ancestral lands no less in a way that was not meant as a complement thank you because you have very very special people you were here long before any of us we're a low we have a representative in congress who they say was here a long time ago they call or pocahontas it's a name he first used on the campaign trail and polka dot this is not happy she got to refer to the democratic senator and staunch trump critic elizabeth warren the senator who's claimed native american ancestry was quick to respond it is deeply unfortunate that the president of the united states cannot even make it through a ceremony honoring these heroes without having to throw out a wave or the president spokesperson said there was nothing offensive about it you know most people find offensive is senator warren a line about her heritage to advance her career but native groups such as the
national congress of american indians have expressed outrage at the president's use of the name pocahontas before and again called it a slur that denigrates her legacy and i think her native women who are reading the right guy taking one of the name one of the stories of our women and erasing a story but using her name but you are to turn. only helps to continue the extremely high level of violence we have against nato bombing today you know where the controversy overshadowed recognition of the veterans who use the navajo language to transmit secret messages during world war two sending what some insist is a message of disrespect kristen salumi al jazeera well you can find that much more about the stories we're following at our website head to al-jazeera dot com. the minds of our top stories here on al-jazeera the un security council is holding
