kenyatta an opposition leader urging privately they hug and call each other brother . while the ethnic divide here has existed the political uncertainty around recent elections has worsened those divisions in poor areas like this one gangs from different communities on each other and on residents this stream is a boundary between two ethnic communities. and. on this side they're normally peaceful but when elections near suspicion and mistrust in fact some to cause violence. frederick lives in one of the most dangerous areas and has watched tensions quickly escalated to battles between communities he says that such divisions also play out when people feel disenfranchised. they should be. you know. with.
everything this analyst says that healing ethnic wounds can only start by addressing old grievances we need to have dialogue. national conversations that is inclusive it must be about all the. communities what is this that is ailing this country it is plundering of the public resources and it is bad governance even poor governance more than any who comes from the president's community and from the opposition leaders ethnic group both hope they will see a future where they can celebrate political diversity without fear of violence catherine. nairobi kenya. imus international is accusing european governments of being complicit in the abuse of thousands of refugees in their efforts to curb migration and reports the human rights group says the e.u.
policy of containment shows little care for the consequences for those trapped in libya one example given is the funding by e.u. governments of the libyan coast guard to intercept migrants see these refugees and then sent to detention centers where they suffer abuse and exploitation there are nearly twenty thousand people in overcrowded buildings the report also says the e.u. are aware of corruption within libya's coast guard accusing it of working with human smugglers or tendency to cruise deliveries are young is a visiting scholar a senior scholar at the national university of singapore and she says it's hard to point fingers is no one can predict the scale of the libyan migration crisis. i don't think they do national community or even the world has not faced as the scale of a crisis like this i mean look us what the what's not in this part of the world and in myanmar for example i mean who would have guessed who would have known that you would have you know half a million rohingya has crossed into bomb addition
a matter of weeks and the media i think is doing a darn good job given on restrictions in keeping this issues of the forefront off of the public the general public so in that sense you know let's let's build it more a little bit more kind towards that there is the guy and the job that you guys are doing but having said that sure there's a lot more that can be done and a lot more that should be done and i think one is that the european union which is a very strong regional body should really sit down and come to grips with this problem that is not going to go away now you mentioned you know why the migrants keep coming despite all these problems anyone who has migrated and anyone who has left their home know that the uncertainties are there the risks are there but also the small ferments are fueled by hope no matter how hollow coastin that hope might be i come from
a migrant background myself and especially when the background is not of libya failing state where you don't know what more is going to bring you don't know how your children are going to grow up what future they have the little hope that you have it's what's going to fuel this this movement and that i think we should continue to expect and that the european union should be even more prepared for well tens of thousands of us for going to saddam seekers and refugees are facing deportation from israel off the parliament approved a bill allowing the government to force them out of the country and those who refuse to go will be imprisoned attention center which houses some of them would also be close within months or false reports though from television. salaam says she doesn't want to live in israel any more but leaving would be worse the neighbors have screened off the comical entrance to her television apartment keeping her and other african residents out of sight this year a new government policy saw her and her husband lose twenty percent of their
salaries only to be returned if they leave israel they've both been imprisoned in the native eritrea returning there they say would be impossible the alternative rwanda unsafe i don't have any choice i'll go to get a camel at all and because they're flocking saw i want to be in jail whether he kill me. i don't want to go back to africa that choice jail or a third country widely thought to be rwanda is precisely the one israel's prime minister is now presenting as government policy benjamin netanyahu recently told cabinet colleagues that he'd secured an international deal allowing for in force deportations of more than thirty five thousand africans. it would also speed the closure of the isolated hole at the tension center in the southern negev desert thousands of african migrants have been sent here in what campaign groups call a deliberate policy of making their lives as miserable as possible even running at maximum capacity how law could only house about ten percent of the african asylum
seekers in this country this policy these announcements are much more targeted at those who live in communities like this part of israel's open policy of trying to force them to leave salaam says she was brought to israel against her will by people smugglers extorting her family she's found work as a translator and advocacy group assaf her asylum application has she says gone unanswered since it was filed two years ago and it's not the only one they slowly issued as what israel has the right and a duty to say who is a refugee and who is not however israel still hasn't done so we definitely say that not every sudanese or it deserves the status of refugees but the issue here is that out of forty thousand of them only ten have been recognized as refugees israel's prime minister defines the rest as illegal infiltrators his reported deal with the rwandan president would see israel pay five thousand u.s. dollars to rwanda for every deportee accepted and of course game we are here on
a mission and the mission is to give southern tell of the back to the citizens of israel israeli government itself delivered the migrants to this already deprived neighborhood but now it remains their precarious home well the message only gets louder with every repetition they aren't welcome here sorry for said i'll just tell of it. the palestinian president is seeking to rally middle eastern countries against the u.s. recognition of jerusalem as israel's capital mahmoud abbas has met egyptian leader abdel fattah el-sisi agreed to consult with other countries including jordan and saudi arabia a spokesman for a bass said action would be taken soon to preserve the rights of the palestinian people. the leader of the lebanese armed group hezbollah has promised to return its focus to the palestinian cause as it has rather was addressing thousand supporters who marched in beirut challenging death to america called on his allies to unite and to confront israel also accused some arab nations of supporting the united
states. the international criminal court says it will refer to jordan to the un security council for failing to arrest the sudanese president bashir bashir who is wanted on genocide charges was in amman last march attending the arab league summit there are two international warrants for his arrest on ten charges related to the conflict in darfur by shit tonight as the charges. so had air on al-jazeera story i was shadowed by north korea's nuclear arms race the un takes a look at the countries mountain human rights violations plus no sign of slowing down thousands affected by the wildfires that are storming their way through california. from brisk noise and fuel. to the warm waters of southeast asia. welcome to international weather forecast we've seen some pretty severe
weather affecting many parts of western europe is cold it's windy it's snowy this frontal system is a really active affair we've had some heavy rain for parts of the mediterranean coastline but really it's snow which is the main issue at the moment so let's look at the forecast then you see we've got warm air there pushing up ahead of this cold front itself a temperature of double figures f vienna and also for warsaw but still a very strong winds across parts of germany through into poland outbreaks of snow more snow over the alps as we head through into wednesday frontal system moves further towards the south the east and thankfully it does begin to weaken in the meantime we've got another system pushing in further towards the west giving get more snow and strong winds behind it so as we head across the other side of the mediterranean this frontal system is working its way across morocco even through into mauritania where the could be one or two showers and more in the way of cloud across parts of algeria otherwise looking generally fine across the region into central parts of africa many areas dry and fine
a few showers for bon congo and then largely southwards so fine across west africa sunshine in ghana but for southern portions of africa for zomby and zimbabwe for instance very spaces the further heavy showers. the weather sponsored by qatar piece. you are making remarks where on line the main u.s. response to drug use and the drug trade over the last fifty years has been to criminalize or if you join us on say no evil person just makes up the over the morning and says i want to cover the world of darkness this is a dialogue that could be worth leading to some of the confusion about people saying they don't actually know what's going on join the colobus conversation at this time honored.
