5:02 am
most recent crackdown began in august from quote a refugee camp in southern bangladesh charles stratford has this exclusive report. oh my darling daughter she cries she asks me when we talk oh mother what shall i do now how can i come back to you how will you get me out of india to be with you again. my own accounts and says her daughter yasmeen was thirteen years old when she was snatched by a man in the refugee camp and smuggled to india. was three years ago noyon a and the as mean fled the military crackdown in myanmar in two thousand and twelve. says the trafficker was arrested in india and yes men was rescued the daughter is living at a safe house for other trafficking victims in kolkata meon maastricht their hinduism of citizenship in one thousand nine hundred to be to noyon no or yes mean have passports so they cannot be reunited really on a says every month she saves
5:03 am
a little money to chat to the daughter for a few minutes on the phone. only gold knows the pain i experience every day she says i don't have money to go to india my daughter warns me able to try and cross into india without a passport. leona's story is not uncommon in the ricky refugio camps rights groups say that trafficking gangs have thrived in the ranger refugee camps here in bangladesh for years but the recent arrival of more than six hundred fifty thousand new refugees means the situation is getting even worse now we met a trafficker and he told us that men come from outside the camps they pay range of families for their daughters promising them work for the girls often never seen again. we sit by the road in the men come to us the man tells me they also because if we can get the helpless type of people families are ready to provide
5:04 am
girls because they don't have enough food. the man says men often the specifically want girls of a certain age he says they pay the families around five thousand talking about sixty dollars for each go. for the girls around twelve to fourteen years old he says they tell me they have difficulty with their domestic work at their homes they say they need someone to cook for them ling the man tells me he has stopped providing the men with girls now and only trafficked a few young women. when the parents come to find me that i have to highlight he explains they want information all that delicious but i have no information. the un's refugee agency is trying to help noyon to be reunited with her daughter but he says only the bangladesh all sortes use to make
5:05 am
a decision. leona says yes mean never met her father because he died before she was pulled she is afraid she herself may die without ever seeing as me again. i want nothing more than like daughter she says it would be so kind if you if you could get my daughter back well yes mean he's at peace with less. chance trafford al-jazeera alone refused camp on the. iraqis and on a list of human rights activist is joining us now on skype from buying kong benjamin thank you very much for being with us the thing that strikes one immediately about that story is obviously the scale of it obviously the fact that it's been going for on for so long and yet nobody seems able to stop this from happening why is that. well there's definitely some level complicity between bangladeshi authorities and indian authorities on some level the indians
5:06 am
have an advantage there south asian descent easy enough to travel into bangladesh on legal means and of course bangladeshi authorities in the camps would be easy enough to meet with them and i think the most important thing to realise is that not only as as your report said is that the new phenomenon but it's been going back for so long that some of these established channels have been have been working for for years if not decades and now with nearly seven hundred thousand new hinges in the dash there are big population to view with it for this sort of thing and they're lacking not only their basic needs but they're lacking passports and citizenship as well in most cases from myanmar so one thing go deeper into that rabbit hole into india getting them back out is near impossible and of course the irony is that the illegality trumps right without the passports they can be taken illegally into india but can't be taken back out unless. the left bangladesh goes
5:07 am
through great efforts to get these people to travel documents they need to be read into the fact that families are prepared to sell other members of their families predominantly goes in this case that charles was reporting on what does that tell us about the level of aid and support that the refugees are getting and the count's that they feel they have to do that. well in some cases it's important to keep in mind that the families wouldn't see it as such as selling their daughters into something they would see it as an employment opportunity and perhaps the dollar exchange is simply before entering into that system you raise a great point humanitarian situation in bangladesh for these ranges continues to be very dire not to mention that they weren't exactly leaving a situation in which they were very well off their basic needs and work time they were often barely being that it meant that all those camps were perhaps not as bad as those in bangladesh that were very close and they were talking about families in
5:08 am
a whole population of people whose basic needs food clothing shelter have never been consistently met there were an opportunity comes their way to place their daughter in employment the most telling their daughter to a traffic of course the matter of perception and deception in this case it looks like a very good opportunity for them given the fact and i understand the point you're making about it's about families seeing this as a possible opportunity but there seem to be far more stories about terrible endings to this kind of situation why are people still prepared to take that risk when there are so many dreadful stories like the one that we heard in charles's report. we need at the end of the day it needs right i mean no one no one given these reports are starting to spread and becoming more more well known in the camps fewer people you would think would engage in this system and probably fewer are those who continue to engage are are in need of of the money that they can be provided certainly the money upfront if there is money upfront to be provided and certainly
5:09 am
whatever remittances they are hopeful of receiving from their daughters in india given the quote unquote domestic work they're supposed to be doing it's need or want expected a few families might even be aware of what the real work might be for these for these daughters but in most cases again i think they're probably the into thinking this is a work opportunity in a country that needs domestic workers benjamin's iraq isn't on a list i'm human rights advocate we appreciate your time thank you very much. yemen's prime minister has accused separatists backed by the united arab emirates of an attempted coup after they took over the government's headquarters in the city of aden at least ten people have been killed and one hundred others wounded in the worst fighting yet between secessionists and yemen's government the session is to want control of yemen's southern region which was an independent country until one thousand nine hundred ninety the civil war has already torn the country apart with the rebels seized control of the capital sanaa in two thousand and fourteen president. government was forced to move to aden in the south adding to the tension
5:10 am
the u.a.e. is arming secessionist fighters despite being part of the saudi led coalition that's helping president hadi battle the these. there is no difference between the than anyone else rebels against a legitimate government no matter who they are if he's not with the legitimate government in egypt balin against it and considered an enemy to the entire country or some avenge of it has this report on the fighting in eight and. yemen's prime minister says secessionists have. not spared the government had been based for the last few years there are reports of several people being killed in fighting between pro-government forces and separatists. this mobile phone footage appears to show people arriving in the city thousands of protesters have been gathering against the internationally recognized and saudi backed government the demonstrators are backed by the united arab
5:11 am
emirates you're just supposed to be saudi arabia's ally in yemen. who. is not necessarily in that situation where you are you really are so you have very important country. you're. in the region. and you really. know that you are its own you have your own. and more of. your country i think. the conflict in today's yemen is complicated the country used to be divided with the north and south yemen until unification in one nine hundred ninety but the difference is never really went away since the fight with the who these began in two thousand and fifteen the secessionists have fought for control over here in seaports of aden last week southern forces led by the man appointed by president of
5:12 am
the rebel months who hired me as the governor of aden and i was to overthrow hardy's government and i don't know general rules to be rejected the deployment of northern forces to the south there have been calls since last sunday so it's been about a week for people to go down to the streets to protest and. transitional council has been calling on had the head of government to dissolve and for a new government be appointed and they are calling for independence as well as we've seen on the ground the clashes are continuing and the situation is. very quickly now the future of president hadi is in question he has been based in saudi arabia along with this prime minister had been that other who struggled to control southern yemen despite support from saudi arabia. women's elected government was pushed out of the capital sanaa in the north and now it doesn't seem to have a place in the south as well as some of the jarvey the others there. to get
5:13 am
a better understanding of the recent unrest let's take a look at yemen's past and for much of the latter part of the twentieth century the country was divided into north and south the north enjoyed support from saudi arabia where the south went from being a british colony to a marxist state backed by the former soviet union but in one thousand nine hundred ninety the two sides united with the president of the north salah becoming leader but after just four years the fragile union was torn apart by civil war salaries forces captured in defeating the south and forcing yemen back into a unified state frictions continued between the two two signs with the south often complaining about what it sees as unfair treatment by the north the south is rich in resources but it says the north gets more investment and attention that's led to the birth of a popular movement which wants independence for southern yemen al jazeera senior political analyst says the conflict in yemen is playing into the hands of who feel
5:14 am
rebels. the southern part of yemen cannot get back together and clearly the saudis and the immoralities that are sponsoring the war in yemen in some sort some form or not of correlation have outsourced much of the fighting within the country and that's leading to some major friction among the southerners as we've seen whether it is the president and his prime minister on the one hand of the whole country that is a bit had the most so had the and and his prime minister and the separatists if you will so all in all you know what the arab coalition is calling for what so many people who care for yemen are calling for you know basically let's wait until this whole thing settled the conflict with the whole seas and then we'll figure out what is it to be done in the south and yet the separatists are taking advantage of the fact that there is a war going on with the healthy with the weak link being in the southern part of

5:17 am
only targets y p g positions. but as is often the case in war facts can be hard to come was turkey's leaders stress that this is only the beginning and they intend to clear the y. p.g. from its entire border area all the way to iraq but the y p g in that area further east is supported by the united states and there are american bases and military personnel on the ground their relations between ankara and washington are already tense and just another example of how complicated syria's war has become. on the turkish syrian border. meanwhile syrian activists say turkish airstrikes during the battle enough rain have damaged an ancient temple activists say the i mean that a temple was reduced to rubble following strikes on sunday it was built sometime between the eighth and tenth centuries it's unclear what condition the site was in before the attack the turkish military is investigating the reports and
