clearly that's going to be a very talented issue of us and that's just the beginning but even before getting to the house what we have all of a mccants is that he has got the car of work life people going to be before we have any sense of the current ability. green to comprehensive trade deal with us. and finally when it comes to the e.u. doing expects a trade war to be ratcheting up the chain the u.s. and the e.u. of everything from taxes on digital products to wine. so there's a specific friday sure at the moment concerning the decision by france to impose a century taxes on exports to france all petersen's and by multinational companies which the u.s. of the meat of the scene or they believe is the spear of the tree and consistent with france's and the. commitments and that by me to resolve these issues lead
12:01 am
us ringback problems in trade restrictions on specific french exports while in chief for instance that's a fairly specific dispute. in the context of a broader are us a europe a ship or i think the. issue but not the u.s. decides to be powers on and off of automobiles on the national security provision in the united states that people are seeking to go down and certainly to a much more significant escalation in the tribespeople with me you are right joshua bell so i thank so much. of thousands of ringer refugees are marking what they called genocide remembrance day. 2 years since more than 700000 people were forced to leave their homes in and live in densely crowded camps in bangladesh thousands of people were killed un

investigators say men leaders should be prosecuted on charges of genocide war crimes and crimes against humanity let's take a closer look at how the crisis unfolded on august 25th 2017 fighters from iraq armed groups say they attacked dozens of men more police posts and an army base about 80 fighters and 12 members of the security forces were killed the fighting spread and the military burnt down hundreds of homes within weeks almost 300000 rohingya have fled the violence which included murder rape and torture by mid september the un to describe the military operation against their hunger as textbook ethnic cleansing 70 deca has more from a long camp in the southeast of the country. today's quiet calm betrays the scenes of panic 2 years ago when hundreds of thousands of ranger crossed the river now in
12:03 am
a desperate attempt to seek safety they are safe now but nothing has been resolved nor has 6 children in this part of the exodus in august of 2017 literally rather. they asked if you want to go back to burma said no you asked me why i told them that our houses were burnt our family members were raped and killed this is why we suffered so much and came here how can we go back without knowing that we will be safe. there's been a renewed effort to get some of the refugees to go back to me in march but with no guarantee of what will happen when they get there no one has so far agreed to return the scale of this camp is like nothing you've ever seen it is the biggest refugee camp in the world around a 1000000 rangar living in these camps across southeastern bangladesh but what does that number really mean well it's more or less the population of islamabad or oslo it is a city of refugees without the infrastructure needed to cope many aid agencies work
12:04 am
here in that sense it is a global effort but it's bangladesh that's hosting the rangar and it's made it very clear this is a temporary solution and it's a population that keeps expanding this is a really dynamic population. aboard 100 to 2 been born in the weeks and probably 3000 police report and people being murdered him to you so it keeps growing the young won't remember much about what happened but the older ones know that the killings the rate the burning of homes in august of 2017 was only the latest chapter in what's been decades of persecution against their people and as you hussein is a camp leader this is his 3rd time as a refugee in bangladesh have brought our grandmothers mobile. alabama my gratitude i'm 65 years old i came here as a refugee in 1978 then again in 1902 then i went back now i'm
12:05 am
a refugee again in 2017 i've spent 30 years of my life as a refugee i want to go home if the burmese accept our demands will go back right away. what they want is to be officially recognize israel as citizens of me and mar with rights freedom of movement and security what they want is to go back home but the reality is they are not wanted there most of their homes no longer exist bangladesh is categoric it can't hoose them forever it's not clear what or where their future will be stephanie decker al-jazeera could have a long camp cox's bizarre south east bangladesh for young healy is the united nations special rapporteur for me and ma speaking to my colleague earlier she said the international community has failed their hunger. well 1st and foremost the security council has not been effective or it has not been up to its job to
12:06 am
refer this situation to the international criminal court as i have recommended and others have recommended numerous number of times and without security council moving forward there are other options for us and for the international community to pursue in this account and the accountability process the independent a mechanism has just been set up this will be collecting and mapping and consolidating data for all the crimes that they committed to that lead up to 2012 which is covering 2011 and currently what has what is still going on not just in rakhine but in kitchen and in northern china and state so having said this my other recommendation is
12:07 am
to in to pursue accountability we can also set up an international tribunals or they international community can apply universal jurisdiction but none of this has taken any traction so far why did i met is that this upcoming well 1st of all the. international community the the big. muscle people of the international community oh very quiet if you have read the recent fact finding missions report about the business involvement of the top model within mema covering everything pharmaceuticals to media construction banking thing they have also identified turn to 15 international. companies
12:08 am
that are cooperating more have invested in the tatmadaw of philly aided companies and i am not sure if that might be the reason why is i'm of the countries or the member states are keeping quiet so far but i think they should not. keep silent anymore and move forward so when we talk about this camp it's basically a city of over a 1000000 people it doesn't seen that there's any place for them to go all right now and they're very resistant understandably to to being sent back so what can be done for them in this situation right now with bangladesh breathing down their neck saying we can't do this anymore. well bangladesh certainly has been more than generous in and housing and hosting more than
12:09 am
a 1000000 refugees for a number of years now well there's security issue is the most most. serious issue for the ranges they do not feel safe to go back and by saying they do not feel safe to go back is those perpetrators who are responsible of the torture the rape and the killings and the burnings and those who are responsible of course was forcibly deporting people out of me m r they're still there and if you have those security forces police and military still there how would you feel safe. oh plenty more still ahead on the news hour including israeli prime minister benjamin netanyahu delivers a warning to rainy and forces across the region plus. i was on the border between pakistan and india and the impact of the border and. it's not all violent games we find out about the high prize money and pressure in the

12:17 am
zarif has made an unexpected visit to the g. 7 summit in france holding talks with his french counterpart to try and save the iran nuclear deal but a meeting with the u.s. delegation is not on the agenda. g 7 leaders have agreed to help countries affected by fires in the amazon as fast as possible tens of thousands of brazilian soldiers begun heading into the rainforest to help fight the blazes of president says things are returning to normal. thousands of rohingya refugees are marking what they call genocide remembrance day it's 2 years since more than 700000 people were forced to leave their homes in the mine and live in bangladesh. let's get more now on our top story the g 7 leaders have been urged to do more to achieve gender equality in a report presented by the head of un women and 2 nobel peace prize winners the g.
12:18 am
7 gender equality advisory council urged the members to adopt and promote feminist laws the report says legislative reform is the best way for g 7 leaders to make the biggest difference it says more than 2 and a half 1000000000 girls and women around the world suffer through discriminatory laws and a lack of legal protections one in 3 women will be the target of physical or sexual violence in their life 2 thirds of people who cannot read or write are female and girls are 15 times more likely than boys to be excluded from primary school globally the gender wage gap is still on average 20 percent 94 percent of men work 1st says 64 percent of women a report by a consultancy firm mckinsey found closing the gender wage gap could add up to $28.00 trillion dollars in annual g.d.p. 52025000 in terms of political representation 5 percent of the world's
12:19 am
heads of government and 24 percent of parliamentarians are women. carter everson is president c.e.o. of is president rather of the advocacy organization women deliver also on the president micron's g 7 gender equality advisory council joins us now from the g. 7 in beer it's good to have you with us 1st of all let's start with one of your. demands in this g. 7 to make legal changes what kind of legislative changes are you calling for. the. what the council that gender equality council to the g 7 is asking for is to world leaders the g 7 and all this to the gender discriminatory laws they already have on the books because everybody has them on the books and then push progress and laws invest in the implementation because it's not just about getting laws on
12:20 am
the books it's also about getting them implemented and finance women organization that are the ones on the forefront of this and then of course keep their promises hold themselves accountable as we also look to them to do that so that's kind of what we are asking and that's what we went in to the meeting today with the leaders and it was good to see that how receptive they were when it comes to the issue you mentioned of making sure people keep their promises what kind of accountability framework are you proposing. the. so we have proposed an accountability find one that will then follow the promises made but also in in last year's g 7 where we also have the gender equality council and then we'll look at it with measure it and because president mccraw next year is open his you know country and arms to the big 25 the 25th
12:21 am
anniversary of the conference with a big push called generation equality that would be a good moment to take stock and that was also what the leaders discussed today what are they going to go home and do and how will they look at it next year and hold each other accountable that it's done there is a lot going on at the g 7 this year a lot of division a lot of movement when it comes to iran focus on amazon the fires of course the trade disputes are you finding enough of a space to get everyone's attention when it comes to women's issues or gender equality issues. think if when you have to let the leaders have been discussing inequality throughout and a big session this morning and they had to dedicate this session on gender equality to end the inequality so just if you look at the time my location it's definitely a priority but let me also say that all the other issues discussed here have agenda
12:22 am
lens you mentioned yourself and we can see study that we could add 26 percent to global g.d.p. if there was gender equality in the workplace so that is really key this is not a soft tissue this is not a nice issue this is a really really hard core both from a rights perspective but also from an economic and positive development from the world for everybody not just girls and women so this one of our recommendations 79 laws can be a game changer if people go home and implement them. just bring us up to speed with a bit of an overview as i read out before we came to this interview some of the numbers there showing the challenge that remains when it comes to gender equality but which way is the curve going is progress being made at least amongst g 7 member countries. we're a very very interesting time in history right now we're seeing more progress than
12:23 am
we've ever seen and fast on gender equality in some areas but we are also seeing conservative winds push back on women's rights including women's right to decide on their own lives and bodies and that's also why we need to keep vigilant and that's also why it's so important to be here we see big interest we see big investment and we've seen a tremendous attention but nothing comes from nothing and hope is not enough so we need to see action and we really need to see investments both because it's the right thing but also because it really is economically sound. or i will leave it there thank you so much khatib us. of the us is marking the arrival of the 1st in slaves the africans to the english colony of virginia 400 years ago the transatlantic slave trade database says nearly 400000 people were sent to north
12:24 am
america over more than 2 centuries around $10000000.00 ended up in south america and the caribbean the commemoration comes at a time when the us president is accused of creating a culture white nationalism and racism can flourish alan fischer joins us now live from hampton in the state of virginia so tell us how this day's be marked there. well if you look over just to my right you can see the large tent there will be many people here in the next few hours and you can also hear a few of the artists who will be performing this is the final commemoration in a number of days of events that have marked the arrival back 400 years ago around this time in august records aren't exactly precise of the far east african sleeves to come to the english speaking colonies here in what became the united states. i
12:25 am
mean you can imagine just how fearful those 20 people must have felt the came from what is no modern day angola coming in through the sea to what was a fairly primitive colony that was run by the british at arrived here and told the lives were no. they were being handed over to people who would use them as slaves then and many cases some of them life here was much more primitive than the experienced in africa but of course from those far still rivals we saw many more and that 7 grew to what is know at the african-american community here in the united states people can trace their links back not just to many places in the african continent because of course slavery as you say became such a big deal over 2 centuries into the emancipation proclamation by abraham lincoln and the civil war to eventually free those slaves in fact in the very elderly days in virginia which many people thought was
12:26 am
a bastion of democracy they actually passed a law which meant that the children of slaves would also become slaves so that is what they're marking 400 years since that arrival they're marking here in hampton today and yet allan even after the civil war in the civil rights proclamation race relations and race issues still remain very relevant in the trump era. exactly right people are still talking about equality we know that in the democratic primaries they are talking about reparations for african-americans with out what would that be cash incentive would be money to encourage black businesses there is talk too about the inequalities in the criminal justice system how more black men are geale than white men how the sentences for black males for similar offenses are much greater than for white males and so this whole question has arisen again not least because of the argument over white supremacy and the attacks we've seen over the last few months and whether or not the president of the united
12:27 am
states is actually inflaming knaves with some of his rhetoric so for many people this isn't just a commemoration of something that happened 400 years ago this is something that even today still echoes back to the time when black people were not considered real people but were considered property and when people talk about the u.s. constitution and how it is we the people should mean much more to people who were disenfranchised from the very beginning. of their thanks so much the u.s. president trump will be facing a 2nd challenger in the republican primaries for the 2020 white house nomination joe walsh is a former u.s. congressman turned talk show host he's challenging the american president after calling him a liar and a bully walsh also said trump is unfit for office in april former massachusetts

governor bill weld was the 1st to challenge trump with these white house bid. police in hong kong of fired tear gas for the 1st time since anti-government process began 12 weeks ago these move on crowds to block streets but most of the day was peaceful protests began over an extradition bill which was later shelved the demands of since widened to include political reforms also in hong kong families of police officers have delivered a petition to the office of the city's beijing appointed leader kerry lam they say politicians not police should settle all issues they also wanted investigation into the protests and the strategy for keeping any outbreak of violence to a minimum when hague has more from hong kong. it's been another to be lent weekend in some parts of hong kong is this anti government movement shows no sign of slowing down on both day saturday and sunday we saw a very large peaceful marches taking place in different parts of the city those marches had been given pre-approval by the police for the protesters to march along
12:29 am
designated routes but as we've seen many times before smaller smaller groups of protesters broke away from the main bunch and took some more extreme action like blocking major roads and intersections erecting barricades and 40 fortifying their position and again as we've seen many times before when they do that the police tend to waste very little time trying to move them on and that's what we've seen here sunday evening the police gave them a warning that they were coming going to move in and clear these major roads of the protesters they fired many rounds of tear gas the protesters held out for as long as they could but in the end were no match here for the police as of all our leader has nasr arlo's condemning israel for sending drones over beirut to describe it as a dangerous escalation of an ns army says 2 drones ended its air space one crashed on another exploded in the air as by law says it damaged
12:30 am

12:32 am
restrictions imposed by the palestinian authority but these monthly payments are also very closely linked to the security situation just a few days ahead of the latest transfer from qatar there was a warning from the committee in charge of the weekly friday protest that they may return to the open clashes and confrontations we've seen in previous months that went away after this most recent payment came through it is election season in israel there are accusations against benjamin netanyahu the israeli prime minister that he is exceeding to extortion demands and presence from hamas in the way that these payments are being made we've seen in the last month an escalation in really in security around the gaza border fence with attempts by armed palestinian men to get through. defense we've seen rockets being fired out from gaza territory towards i've been to israel as well the security situation seems to be jolly good rebalanced for now we see payments are coming through and they are both presumably
12:33 am
keeping that security situation to some extent under control and they are vital the people that continue for now to receive. it's not just humans who are suffering in the dispute over kashmir border fencing and forest fires are putting the wildlife in the himalayan region at risk. reports from part of the line of control administered by pakistan. in a backyard scared and pushed out of its natural habitat this planting leopard represents the plight of wildlife in one of the world's most militarized zone. as humans fight over the disputed territory defenses directed have divided the habitat for animals as well the fence stretches for about 550 of the 700 kilometer long line of control between india and pakistan. barely before the pains wildlife would freely move between indian occupied kashmir and. now that natural migration route has been severed the life cycle and biological requirements have been limited.
12:34 am
i use dense forests are home and a source of food for many species the wild cats beer deer goats monkeys and birds only a few of these creatures can respond to these days despite conservation efforts and my life preserves on both sides this new species is called the great it is one of the worst affected after the fencing between pakistan and india and that's why these friends are being bred in captivity. and after 15 years just 5 regular hours exist in this well heck there is a fence along. the fence many species in kashmir are stranded on either side the numbers have dwindled and the gene pool has shrunk small population breeding means they go through genetic changes higher population and the rate of cross breeding makes them stronger in addition the cross border fire which results in fires also
12:35 am
has an impact on the logged life mountain pheasants are also vulnerable the ones being bred in captivity have to be regularly checked because in a varies they don't develop the natural immunity which birds acquired in the wild the speed of population growth is another threat as forests shrink wildlife is affected people use trees for firewood and construction hunting and poaching also plays a role in numbers. conservationists warn that without cross border collaboration many species are at risk. that is this baby leopard which got her trying to cross the electrified fence. last bread i reminded to humans the fight for territory and control is destroying the very land they're fighting for but i haven't job it down to 0 at the line of control pakistan administered kashmir. the kenyan government is conducting a historic census this week and it's the 1st in africa to recognise intersex people

james bays joins us now from berates let's start of 1st of all with zarif visit what do we know about his schedule. well it came as a big big surprise to all of us here all of the reporters that he was coming here in fact the reporters in this room gathered covering the summit learned about it from 5 tracking apps on their phone that showed that the iranian foreign minister is buying that landed here then it was confirmed by the iranian foreign ministry no real official confirmation yes people are talking to reporters officials but no official confirmation from the president french presidency of the g 7 even at this stage remember what took place on friday zarif was in paris he met with president bankroll i suspect there was discussion about a possible visit then at that stage also recall what took place here on
12:53 am
saturday night it was an informal dinner of all the g 7 leaders that took place at the lighthouse in directs we know that iran was one of the key subjects at that meeting we also know from the iranians that the final go ahead for zarif to come here only came late on saturday night so i suspect that the idea of him coming here was brought up at that informal dinner and the leaders made no objection to the idea of him coming here we also know he's already had a meeting with the french foreign minister and the french may well have put forward some proposals to try and deescalate the situation and we're also hearing that the plan from the iranian side is for to leave in the coming hours of very quick visit so it seems to me that the g 7 had decided to send a message to the reef zarif because the iranians want to try and deescalate the situation and are open to diplomacy have come here not prepared to talk to us but.
12:54 am
repaired to listen to what the message is from the g 7 leaders does this visit indicate a told james any kind of change in the u.s. position on this ready. i think that's the big question we're all trying to ask and really not really good indications yet because we haven't really got enough information to go on certainly very early on the moment reporters heard zarif was in town president trump was asked about that and he simply replied no comment i can tell you president trump has ended his meetings for the day here with back for the formal dinner tonight of the g 7 leaders but he's having a rest for a few hours so certainly no opportunities for reporters to ask any more questions i would tell you something i think it is to me seems not at all possible that the french would have invited zarif without a go ahead from the u.s.
12:55 am
because that could have risks president trump we've seen him do this before deciding to pack up and leave the summit so i assume that the the u.s. either gave the green light or certainly were consulted in advance and the fact the u.s. is prepared to have zarif here at the very same time as trump is here suggests that they are potentially welcoming the idea of some new diplomacy there may of course be differences in the administration we know there are some national security advisor john bolton and 2 x. to an extent sector state might prompt to continue the maximum pressure policy on terror all right james bays our diplomatic editor there. to 7 leaders have agreed to help the countries affected by fires in the amazon as fast as possible tens of thousands of brazilian soldiers have begun heading into the rain forest to join the fight against the fires but their president says things are returning to normal the military is being sent to 6 states in an unprecedented response

difficult to police but now with the president in office who's cut funding to the very government agencies tasked with defending this land that's nearly impossible the president also nado has also said that the indigenous communities of brazil are an impediment to progress in the country and hinted that speculators will not be punished for breaking the law we're now surrounded by smoke i can smell the smoke ashes of falling into the river many of those speculators are taking full xander full advantage of that situation and the one of the major reasons why large parts of the amazon raging are ablaze like rarely before. in hong kong police have used live ammunition and water cannon for the 1st time against demonstrators who staged a 3 month long protest the latest clashes happened after another large more peaceful march took place in another part of the city adrian brown reports. sunday afternoon in hong kong. police and protesters now well versed in each other's
