the military. doing a great service for the country yet uninformed about the eighteen year long war on a killing not anyone's really thinking about it but honestly the gritty realism of the film is not in line with the more sanitized image of the military that most americans are used to seeing nor is it an image that the military wants to promote the marine corps has condemned the behavior on display telling al-jazeera it is not in line with their high standards while the marine corps and says that at least some of the footage is the property of the military but chose not to pursue legal action to halt its release after defenders of the u.s. constitution's first amendment got involved this is not just miles as own free speech rights but the rights of the public to get this unique perspective of what it was like to be a soldier on the ground in afghanistan. home right that perspective
includes attempts to save a fellow marine mortally wounded in combat his mother permitted the footage to be used in the film we do want to have an honest discussion about the war that doesn't you know hero worship and kind of sugarcoat the whole experience goes he estimates twenty fellow marines died during his eight month tour of duty. he himself was wounded all before coming to that yes there's no discussion of the tens of thousands of afghan civilians killed in the war but the filmmaker hopes to give american viewers a better understanding of what they and the u.s. military are up against kristen salumi al jazeera new york. hello again elizabeth problem in doha with the headlines on al-jazeera voting has ended after turkey's municipal elections and president. party is fighting to hold

to stop the spread of hate speech well those are the headlines on our to zero one zero one is coming up next. they are young vulnerable girls from rural villages desperately poor they sold a vision of money and adventure all they have to do is sign up to become maids in singapore but for many the reality is badaracco. one o one east investigates why girls who are too young to work continue to be trafficked to asia's most prosperous nation.
in may two thousand and seventeen a young domestic worker from miramar had a terrifying fall from the night floor of this block of flats in singapore. her employer whom we will call john can still remember that day. a bounce that touches ona lesson she told told us how low us some thoughts on to. sunlight a soul of what you call biscuit households not touch a book i sing. and book i sing about how to how to tell white just as i see i see our. own children. the girl who john knows s. ten ten was severely injured and is lucky to be alive. full was broken
by a covered walkway two stories down john says he was initially very angry about what she'd done but then he found out something shocking from the myanmar embassy tintin was just fifteen years old. what's and. you know it didn't. type in the two and clearly and it assumes that it sounds cool i see. no harm in this is what's in the soul so it's great doubts and doubts and so on when pete foss and. john and his wife hired tintin through a singapore an employment agency asset recruitment according to this information sheet prepared by the company she was twenty three years old. asset recruitment the client of repeated requests for comment. on them.
on the human juice all on food is good so i. see it's a red so i. will. but tintin's is not an isolated case thirty. in two thousand and sixteen in an exclusive investigation one of one east reveals that teenage girls were being trafficked from me and mocked to singapore for domestic work do you also think that . this was despite laws in myanmar banning all female citizens from seeking such jobs overseas following reports of abuse. as well less laws in singapore stipulating that all foreign domestic workers have to be at least twenty three years old now we're discovering that the illegal trafficking of vulnerable young girls continues.

underage. trapped in households and do not know how to seek help so that's also net effect. of such cases. some cases end in tragedy. just four weeks off the arriving here domestic worker white wine allegedly jumped out of the window of her employer's eighteenth floor flat. at a funeral we meet her oldest sister choctaw who also came to singapore as a domestic worker. of volunteer from a migrant workers ngo helps to translate. and. this is from. a new person. but we don't get to speak further as churchill is led away by officials from the myanmar embassy and the army on monday night.
to find out the truth about wine wine we travel to the mandalay region in central min ma. it's a world away from singapore. down a dirt track off the main road is in dorji village. this is where wine wine and her sister church all grew up and where their mother and family still live. their brother. has been unwell for months unable to work after a mine the wound became infected because he couldn't afford to get it treated. he and his wife have just had a baby. but he only wants to talk about his sister. and. what. it. near.
warning i will leave it yet. you give me your whole why nothing of. what we. keep wasn't home when a recruitment agent from a neighboring village showed up one day and it was their mother who agreed to let wine wine go to. the movie might have been a way to adam. and eve and the. game was only to late you know. as we suspected wine wine was under-age family records show she was only seventeen were told the same agent has recruited at least sixty goals from this village to go to singapore one of them has recently returned and come to visit
white wines family kensho is twenty years old unable to cope with being away from home she quit only a month off the leaving myanmar. mother tells us another of her daughters is still working in singapore to mobile that her that cannot be allowed the lab may even like to model them if you don't run out quality live and hold up a member you are a little mad. and they're the rule yami you know yadi you have you know a lot of not been able or not going wrong i mean. for the better part of the interview kinch will leave the talking to her mother but she does try to interrupt wants. one thousand in my leg little teeny little madeleine the bank leave i want to hire now who now might let you know about all i know by now of my boom of
a moment. for wine wines grieving family these are clearly difficult words to hear but the neighbor doesn't stop and she wants us to know that she believes the agent is the villages benefactor to lao whole a little to my legally of a say yeah me now miserable me bad yeah yeah he will yeah eighty g.b. . the level would i get. as with little mikey. day's drive south takes us to the region. we're hoping to see momo. we lost better on this rooftop in singapore as part of our two thousand and sixteen investigation. she was just seventeen when she went there as a domestic worker she told us months of sexual abuse by her employer
to appear want to be all into it should not be out in. russia not to be not to be near me too if you want to but i don't want you know waddell who don't want to hear what i know and she. she fled as soon as the eight months were up but had to remain at a shelter in singapore for another two years to assist police investigations. they finally allowed her to come home even though the case remains unresolved. not getting the baronet the rules honey united them and blow up almost paid leave. and let them yeah. she's now five months pregnant. husband doesn't have a regular job. at all and he and his al goodman if up here do not have been out of
any and sky and that you know it had a car led them and quietly. dog. at the waist high and. with so few opportunities it's no wonder girls from this village are still leaving for singapore. momo says despite what happened to her she doesn't try to stop them but out of the media who. called out what the mere thought of the man will they meet. him you know we need. the me as the woman to be a good hiding. and. the wily. tintin is one domestic worker who didn't need help. she's the fifteen year old who accidentally fell from her employers apartment
building she is still recovering from her injuries. she shows us the possible she used to get a job in singapore almost all the information in it is false. at home she's known as ins in and she was born in two thousand and two not one thousand nine hundred ninety three she confirms what happened to her in singapore and me out there they have all of them in their faith. that i had that i sing a lot i mean. i want to. have that i think we're going to tell our and if it ever they are good you know that a look at that. she'd gone to work in singapore hoping to help support her impoverished family but because of the money she owed to her recruitment agents she came home with nothing now her mother has to take care of her instead.
