1:35 pm
seven million palestinians live in the diaspora more than half are stateless they have no citizenship in any country according to the united nations the majority live in occupied palestinian territory and in surrounding countries jordan hosts more than three million palestinians more than half a million live in syria well at least they used to because of the war more than one hundred thousand fled to europe and elsewhere around fifty thousand of them sought refuge here in lebanon it was an added strain to aid agencies that were already overstretched some four hundred fifty thousand palestinians are registered with the un in lebanon but according to the first ever census by the lebanese government more than half of them have left the country in recent years. man comes in with more than fifty percent left due to the difficult economy conditions they are deprived from the basic rights they don't have a job opportunities. muhammad but he says he's searching for
1:36 pm
a way out he tried but failed to smuggle his family to turkey from where he planned to reach europe he also tried to apply for immigration to canada. the economic conditions here are bad and we banned from working in many professions we dream of travelling because here it's hard to provide our children with food but just because i want to leave doesn't mean i have given up on palestine and i want to return. palestinians hold on to that right adopted by the un general assembly it has been decades but many like sod it believe that one day palestine will be there is again and one day his grandchildren or their children will bring his body back to his hometown. beirut. dozens of people being taking part in a vigil in beirut on ring several woman murdered in the past week the deaths of three arab women as well as british embassy worker rebecca dykes sparked outrage activists are raising awareness of widespread violence against women in lebanon

they're demanding better protection reporters without borders and amnesty international calling for the media release of al-jazeera journalist mahmoud his say it's now been more than a year since he was arrested and jailed in egypt human rights watch has condemned the imprisonment the organization says his detention shows egypt's deep rooted intolerance for free expression and what he's saying is accused of broadcasting false news to spread chaos which he and al jazeera strongly denies repeatedly complained of mistreatment in jail supporters of russian opposition leader lexan of on the been gathering in several cities in a bid to get his name on the ballot for presidential elections in march. i would only have been banned from running due to a criminal conviction but he says the constitution allows him to run because his sentence was suspended last week president vladimir putin announced he will seek
1:38 pm
a new six year term in march as votes let's cross live to rory chalons in moscow really just more about what the all me novell he's been up to today. it's a busy day of opposition activity here in russia on sunday essentially the valley has been trying to do is pass one of the early stages in the election process that we might see hopes allow him to run against putin in march of next year and what you have to do as one of the steps is gather if you are an independent least five hundred people in one place and get them to endorse you as their candidate so he has tried to set up in at least twenty cities around russia these events and in moscow because he was being refused various venue's he basically had to set up a tent on the on the beach or on the river in
1:39 pm
a leafy parts outside the city and get his supporters down there he was thinking that many of these meetings around the country were going to be shut down that's why he's organized so many of them it seems to been successful though he got seven hundred people together in moscow to endorse him but as you just said earlier on in your intro it is very unlikely that he is going to be allowed to run against putin next year he has this conviction the kremlin sees him as a threat it's very unlikely that he would actually be able to beat putin in the election but he's still a threat and still spoils the kremlin's image of putin as a kind of sainted leader so even though he has passed this administrative ministers of hurdle it's unlikely that he's actually going to be able to run next year and i suppose it's just an example of what little opposition there is rational allowed to be corny. yeah i mean there is there's another thing
1:40 pm
going on later on in the day which is linked but it's still distinct now there were there were municipal elections in september which on the face of it not very interesting but it's there were actually some intriguing results to these municipal elections and liberal opposition parties targeted and won a large number of municipal districts in moscow yashin who is another high profile opposition figure was one of the beneficiaries of this he is now the head of municipal districts in moscow and he has spotted that this position of allows him to organize. and run demonstrations so that's what he's been trying to do he basically has gone up against the city or thor it's easy to say no he can't do that the city courts rules that demonstration planned for later today is illegal and the police have been busy this morning essentially sealing off the area and dismantling the stage that have been set up now yashin has been forced to back off
1:41 pm
a little bit he's now saying that his supporters should still come down but rather than bring in political banners they should bring flowers to avoid any arrests i think i mean what this shows is that in the run up to march as presidential elections the tussle between the or thora t s and the fragmented opposition movements in russia is likely to heat up all right thanks for that roy. a quiet revolution in the way we work is happening all around us but some leading thinkers say governments are failing to keep the public informed automation an artificial intelligence or creating a new world where millions of jobs will simply disappear in the first of a five part series on ai lawyers league salman's which jobs could be most under threat. and you play music who understand and. in the future

is likely many people will have one of these in their home. after all it will sing songs and dance feel kids will tell you how to cook a meal. well teach math this could be a classroom assistant exactly but what interests business about these robots is that they can be put in the supermarkets and tell you where the yogurt is or go into the lobby of an office block and tell you where to meet your contact we're speaking to large blue chip companies who want to use them in their offices we're speaking to cab home providers we're speaking to hotels commonly factories to use in their showrooms. home from a variety of financial organizations banks retail supermarkets quite a large sector businesses are extremely cagey about talking about their interest in artificial intelligence not surprising given that robots or algorithms could replace humans in any number of ways jobs insurance the law financial
1:43 pm
services other clerical roles are already being lost entire professions are projected to disappear. and if a robot can be designed to build a house in a couple of days and the movement of goods will be performed without humans then it's clear that in rich countries vast numbers of jobs in all pay grades could be at risk in agriculture designers are working on a robot which can distinguish between leaves and stalks to pick fruit very little appears outside the imagination some people are genuinely asking what jobs there might be less folk humans actually to do and one answer seems to be things with our hands because robots don't have motor skills so things perhaps like working with food or cutting hair or gardening but clearly much of this is monotonous and it's not very well paid so who will give us money or pay for things if we no longer work
