a group of five hundred refugees and migrants are about to reach the u.s. border after a month on the road they say they are scaping from violence and persecution in central america u.s. president donald trump wants them turned away rob reynolds reports from san diego. migrant rights supporters marched through downtown san diego near the end of the two hundred twenty five kilometer journey on foot from los angeles to showing solidarity for a group of hundreds of migrants from central america traveling to lure the us mexico border while the trunk administration is going to meet refugees at the border with guns and walls we're going to meet them with open arms and open hearts . is reached the border they will ask for protected refugee status in the u.s. says an attorney accompanying them on their journey even have to show that you will
suffer persecution in your country of origin and based on your race religion nationality political opinion or because you are a member of our particular social group. because the central american migrants are fleeing rampant violence and not persecution as north traditionally defined are well they may find it difficult to obtain asylum. central american countries have some of the highest murder and violent crime rates in the world we spoke to raina came from el salvador last year she asked us to disguise her identity for fear of reprisals against family members back home she fled after criminal gangs attacked her family and i love my son in law they left his dead body on my doorstep and shot him fifteen times he was only twenty three years old than our entire family all of us were targeted once rayna reached the us she requested asylum then spent the next
nine months in detention rayna is waiting for a hearing to decide whether she will get asylum she has no doubt about the fate that awaits her family if they're sent back. i'm certain we would be going to our deaths u.s. president donald trump harshly denounces groups of central americans traveling to the u.s. calling them dangerous and the border patrol has begun subjecting migrants to harsher treatment like separating children from parents in detention reyna as a message for drum. and sing a precedent that all i would tell president trump to have mercy on us and to give us an opportunity to live for migrants like her asylum is a matter of life or death. or san diego. a former
president joyce banda has returned to malawi after four years of self-imposed exile despite the risk of arrest over corruption allegations banda fled malawi in twenty fourteen after losing power in the cascade scandal when tens of millions of dollars were stolen from the state hundreds of supporters were at the airport implanted to welcome her home. the australian government has announced almost four hundred million dollars to help save the great barrier reef large parts of it have been dying off due to climate change and coastal pollution the new money will go towards improving water quality and killing destructive starfish conservation groups say the government is ignoring the biggest threat which is global warming but the environment minister insists the money will make a difference we recognise that the reef faces a number of challenges we've had significant bleaching events in twenty sixteen and twenty seventeen as we race around the world in the great barrier reef is no different to with the stress of all sustained cycling davey and we've seen the
insidious impact of the crown of thorns starfish. and australia's recycling efforts are under threat after an announcement by china before china imported half the world's recycled plastic and paper but no more and as andrew thomas reports now that leaves places like australia with nowhere to send much of their recycled waste . after they put out their bins of recyclable rubbish most australians think no more about it but this is just the start of a process which is facing a crisis. in australia trucks bring the mixed plastics paper gloss and metal to a facility like this one to be separated until recently about haul of the plastic and paper was then shipped to china chinese companies were importing and processing nearly half the world's plastics and paper recycling but in january china's
government in effect banned the import of recyclable waste how to loughton bundles that were up to ten percent contaminated meaning up to a tenth of a bale of one type of recyclable plastic could in fact be known recyclable material australian centers like this one had to do only a rough sift of the initial material the fact that it's made up of different plastics thought in itself is contaminated so you can say there's a bottle of water there that's my dad and i pay eighty material on the campus mind out of a different material and you've got the liable which is made out of a different material again a cap on the next would be regarded as contaminated. china now says only north point five percent of each imported bond compete so-called contamination there isn't a plant in australia that can produce a bundle that can pass that test even the operators of this new one in townsville call promise less than eight percent contamination the business model is broken the supply is a constant the demands being walked out by about pulp and yet there is
a real challenge to find a market for those responsible in both the short term and the longer term. some of the oversupply is being taken by australian processes playing under hoffa what they were the plastics and now taking away the bundles of paper for free but i can't take it away no one is admitting to stockpiling big mountains of plastic in paper or a fire risk creating them breaks laws but the excess. has to go somewhere about ten percent of everything that comes in. but they recycle i found out. and that will landfill the concern now is that a lot more all. those vials all ninety percent plastic that words have gone to china. those in the industry say long this could be an opportunity for more sophisticated process. within australia but in the short term they need in effect
a subsidy from government that means higher taxes to keep the big elections going on the city. a sixteen more refugees from camps in the pacific nation of now are heading to the u.s. under a resettlement deal between australia and the u.s. the group includes afghans pakistanis and. u.s. had agreed to take in around one thousand two hundred fifty of them from australia's overseas prison camps in now and papua new guinea's mannus island but so far they've only allowed two hundred forty refugee advocate advocacy groups say the deal is a failure. going to take you live now to riyadh where u.s. secretary of state mike pompei o is speaking as well along side saudi foreign minister adding to bear there he is listening. in your second country the kingdom of saudi arabia as you all know the u.s. and saudi arabia has long and deep strategic relations for so many
years and on the so many domains like security military commercial and traded occasional domains and spheres. and the most contrary that has to them from saudi arabia to study in the us is the united states of america and we have so many ties and relations with the u.s. and we have given some privileges to the investors. the custodian of the two holy mosques to. the crown prince of. encouraging the ties between both countries the meetings of years that they were very fruitful. to support and those. between the
two countries will also have gone through all the challenges in the region the situation in iraq the iranian. we have you are in the region the situation in yemen . how to support the. contras on the african goes and the crisis and the problem in libya as well and we have identical viewpoints and we were eager to condense our efforts and to deal with these matters and as i said before. saudi arabia is supporting the policy of president from. iran. and also we support the efforts of. those related to the iranian nuclear file and we need to minimize. this. nuclear
file of iran also we need to see a lot of more inspection on the iranian nuclear sites and i think the problem with iran should be sorted out posing more sanctions on iran for violating the international low and violating the ballistic missile. calls and for all the interference in the neighbors countries also have identical viewpoints regarding so many other topics i'm looking forward to working with you call britain with you rex those in the future and welcome to our country thank you for your visit. good afternoon. all it's great to see you again. and it's wonderful to be back your
president trump came to saudi arabia on his first international trip and now i have done so on my first trip as secretary of state. i mean we've we've known each other while and the. two countries have been great partners across a broad spectrum of activities as you described. saudi arabia is a key partner in a long time friend and our partnership is growing i personally had the chance to work closely with saudi leaders over the years on many issues and i look forward to building upon those good works in my new role as secretary of state i would like to thank his majesty king solomon and his world highness crown prince mohammed bin someone for hosting me here on this trip. president trump was recently pleased to welcome the crown prince to united states during his visit the crown page met with dozens of u.s. government and business leaders and i built upon those meetings in conversation last night during dinner with the crown prince at all i covered
a lot of ground during our meeting we discussed iran syria yemen and go for a lation. foreign minister knows the saudi arabia security is a priority for the united states of america will continue to work closely with our saudi partners to counter threats to this country's security. that of course starts with iran iran destabilize this entire region it supports proxy militias and terrorist groups and arms it is an arms dealer to the who the rebels in yemen and iran conducts cyber hacking campaigns that supports the murderous assad regime as well unlike the prior administration we will not neglect the vast scope of iran's terrorism. it is indeed the greatest sponsor of terrorism the world and we are determined to make sure it never possesses
a nuclear weapon the iran deal in its current form there's not a product provide that assurance we will continue to work with our european allies to fix that deal but if a deal cannot reraise the president has said that he will leave that deal. i also want to highlight today that the nuclear deal has failed to moderate the regime's conduct in many other areas i highlighted a few in fact iran has only behaved worse since the deal was approved in yemen iran continues to support the violent cutely who the rebels by providing military equipment funding and training this is in violation of the un security council resolutions who these continue to fire missiles into saudi arabia on a regular basis targeting red sea shipping and threatening threatening the saudi people while we will continue to assist saudi arabia with this defense need and support its right to defend its own borders
a political solution is the only way to advance long term stability in yemen and then the suffering and i know we agree on that. agreed to fully support the new u.n. new u.n. on boys efforts to advance a political settlement that ends the civil war and enduring solution to this conflict and the dire humanitarian situation that has followed from it a longstanding political and security vacuum created by the conflict as well as to terror humanitarian conditions have also been exploited in yemen by al qaeda in the arabian peninsula and by isis when these groups are given safe haven the u.s. homeland is at risk president trips first trip to saudi arabia was historic and i reminded the king how much president trump appreciated that trip. while he was here he attended the opening of the global center for combating extremist ideology i asked minister g.
bear for an update on the work of the center it represents a clear declaration that muslim majority countries must take the lead in comparing terrorism and radicalization around the world america is prepared to stand with saudi arabia in pursuit of the share interest and security but as president trump has said and said at the riyadh summit as well the nations of the middle east cannot wait for american power to crush terrorism for them muslim nations must be willing to take on that burden if we're going to conquer extremism and defeat the forces of terrorism together i know that saudi arabia will be at the front of it we all must honestly confront the crisis of islamist extremism and the islamist terror groups it inspires and this does indeed mean standing together against the murder of innocent muslims the oppression of women the persecution of jews and the slaughter of christians so are you.
