6:02 am
imagery with the nigerian government. as for where they're looking, this is the vast area of the sambisa forest, a strong hold of boko haram. this is about 60,000 square kilometers of space, twice the size of belgium. our world affairs editor john simpson has to the area where boko haram is operating. he reports from the capital of borno state. >> reporter: 136 girls, most of whom were christian until a month ago obediently chant the karan. more than half the girls kidnapped aren't here whether because they refuse to convert or some other reason we don't know. one of the girls is led to the front of the crowd and told to give a muslim name rather than
6:03 am
her christian one. she's clearly frightened. in the video boko haram's leader abubakar shekau who's said to be flamboyant, clever, mocking launches into karan. these girls you're so concerned with, he says, we've lib rated them. they've welcome muslims, and they're staying withobpus. he is desperate of the news of the girls. he's made the dangerous journey from where they were kidnapped to here. no fewer than six relatives were taken. sisters, niece, cousins. he can't spot them in the video. >> this must be shocking for you to see this.
6:04 am
>> this is one of the most shocking moments i ever find myself in. this is inhuman. it is not correct, unfair. there's no need for them to conform them on islam religion. everybody have a right which religion to follow. >> thank you very much. this whole for the of nigeria is boko haram territory. to get around it, you need fire power, lots of it. we had 40 official vehicles packed with armed men to guard us. we're going with the local governor heading to the scene of one of the worst attacks here. it happened last week. it was scarcely reported even within nigeria. this is hostile territory. the road we're driving on would normally be very busy. it's almost empty because no one wants to drive alone here after
6:05 am
the boko haram attacks. we've been passing villages desserted because people are scared of boko haram. after a couple of hour, we reached the town. the bridge outside it had been blown up last wednesday. two days earlier, it was hit by an army of boko haram men. their arrived at 1:30 in the afternoon. we counted hundreds of burned out cars. boko haram didn't want anyone following them afterwards. they massacred 375 people. again almost unnoticed in outside world. the town center was destroyed. the scale of destruction here is quite extraordinary. i hadn't expected this. remember the attention around the world has been on the
6:06 am
abduction of nearly 300 skill girls, but this is going on all the time in this part of nigeria. the governor came to offer help and money. survivors are working themselves into a frenzy of anger that the nigerian government is doing so little to fight boko haram. >> reporter: the crowd is getting quite angry here. there is danger still -- >> we are going to compensate them for their losses and assure them it's important. >> are you frightened over an attack? the governor is lucky to get
6:07 am
away unhurt. this is pretty extraordinary. the governor and all the rest of us are being thrown out of here by the anger of the crowd. we're having to get back to our cars pretty quickly. all this anger isn't surprising. people feel utterly abandoned and can't understand why the world which cares so much about the missing schoolgirls seems to care so little about the instruction of an entire town. john simpson, bbc news in borno state, nigeria. the former prime minister of israel is sentenced to six years in prison for corruption. he was convicted of accepting bribes linked to a property deal while he was mayor of jerusalem. he and his lawyers said they will be appealing this.
6:08 am
joining me from gentlemjerusale legal analyst. they're going to appeal. what's the state of play? how can this map out? >> look, the situation is pretty bad. once they got the conviction, it's a problem politically. now that he's sentenced to six years in jail, the judge said he did the worst kind of corruption and highest bribery. he got a harsher sentence than many other defends. on appeal he has a chance. he is the former prime minister. most findings had to do with fact issue, not legal issues. judges do not like to reverse a decision that had to do with fact issues. when they do it, it's more likely legal issues. >> at least until september he is free effectively. he doesn't have to go inside straight away? >> that's absolutely correct.
6:09 am
the judge said he is not supposed to go to prison before september 1st. that was unusual. usually he would have had to request stay of being to prison pending the judge's appeal. judge did it automatically. september 1st is not the drop dead date. he has other cases against him. if supreme court wants to do it all at once, he may not go to prison way past september 1st. >> it may all be presumably this sentence could be extended if found guilty? >> it could happen, yeah. >> we wait to see what the situation is going today. olmert with a six year prison sentence over his head. thanks. how many of you have done this? had a quick google of yourself just to see what there is on the internet?
6:10 am
perhaps you saw there wasn't anything there at all. the court of justice says individuals should have the right to ask google to delete personal data. people should be forgotten as they call it. google says forcing it to remove data a amounts to censorship. with us, rory jones. this is going to be a prickly issue and i would have thought difficult to make it happen. >> not according to this judgment. this is a big surprise. this case has gone up the courts. google has won at previous stages. it seems they are shocked and surprised about this ruling. it comes from a spanish man having gone to his data protection authority and said there's an old story about me that keeps popping up about some social security debts in the past. i want that taken down. the court has decided that
6:11 am
that's right. this right to be forgotten which is now part of eu law means that individuals that don't like information that is held on them on the internet can act to get it removed. it appears that he doesn't have to be unlawful information. so you can imagine every lawyer at every content provider, every publisher will be pouring over this ruling and thinking what does it mean for us. >> every lawyer would be rubbing hands with glee. that's the point, deciding what is not relevant, what is old information compared to what is there for public interest reasons. >> eu commissioner who's backed strongly, is saying this is a great triumph for individual liberty for people's control over their own data. goggle isn't saying much in
6:12 am
public yesterday. one can be sure lawyers will be trying to find a way out of this. it could be hugely expensive. they'll have to look at how many of us do this thing, google ourselves, don't like what we see. now there's an avenue for people to seek regress. >> that's the point. the internet is so vast. perhaps its would be difficult to process all this. >> in a way that's not the problem. the problem is that it's google which is most people's roots to information. everyone if that information is still there on some website, people know if they can get it removed, there will be enthusiasm from people to do this. >> google will say we're just a

6:20 am
promoting chasity. some see it as a religious duty. prosecutors say it claimed the life of the 13-year-old, one of the top students in her class. outside her home, relatives told us her death was god's will and say the doctor was not to blame. without it the girls are lost. this has been done for a long time. her best friend told us she had a feeling and didn't want the operation. >> it's a very bad thing for girls she said. there's no need for it. it's wrong because it's dangerous. it's also illegal but enjoys
6:21 am
widespread support even after her death. >> a thousand girls have been circumcised since then. the local vegetable seller told us she would take her daughter for fgm when she's in her teens. >> in the past there were ignorance. people brought barbers to cir m circumcise girls. now we take our girls to the doctor. that's what this father did, brought her to this clinic where many girls have the operation. >> we've spoken to the doctor in this case here at his clinic. he wouldn't appear on camera. he denied carrying out the fgm procedure on the girl. he says he treated her for something else and she died to
6:22 am
which he gave penicillin and she was allergic. she lies buried close to her home. her dream was to be a journalist. campaigners say it would take more than prosecution to spare other girls. bbc news. a police officer has been shot dead responding to an emergency call at a housing complex. it's a house in new hampshire burst into blames. the whole thing goes up. this is after the shooting. huge fire. the officer had been responding to calls from neighbors who had heard an argument. another person was taken to the hospital. the fire crews came along, couldn't get near the building to start with from a safety perspective. it pretty much destroyed the premises. how much sleep did you get last night? chances are it wasn't enough. doctors are warning that we
6:23 am
simply don't take sleep seriously enough. our bodies are paying the price. we're hosting day of the body clock here. our health reporter has been investigating how our sleep patterns have serious consequences for our health. time dominates our lives whether the tick thing inside the bell tower at manchester town hall or the phone in your pocket, the clock is never far away. are we paying attention to the right ones? we've all got one deep inside our brains. it may not look this spectacular but it rules our lives. how strong we are, brain functions and odds of a heart attack are in our own block. have we forgotten it's
6:24 am
important? >> we feel we can abandon what 3-4 billion years of evolution and ignore the fact we have evolved outside the cycle. one of us are sleeping one to two hours less every night than we were in the 50s and 60s. notably school children. ordinary tea time in this household. this family is working on a military schedule. a smart phone in this 16-year-old's bedroom keeps her up late at night chatting to friends on social media. parents steve and sam share the same job. while she's in bed in the middle of the afternoon while his wife is working he's got a night shift to come. and she's at karate class. steve has got to get her there disrupting his sleep.
6:25 am
>> life doesn't let you have that much sleep anymore. kids have extracurricular activities. we want to be fit. we need to cram that all in. i could do with more sleep. i'd like it to be a 26 hour day rather than 24 hour. >> this lifestyle comes at a price. studies have shown too little sleep or sleeping the wrong time of day changes our dna and how our bodies run. >> these are pathways that can be underlying links to negative health outcomes we see such as cardiovascular disease, obesity and potentially cancer. >> there have been cause for doctors to stop prescribing sleep to tack ale health problems. when life is so busy, that might be the hardest to swallow. james, bbc news.
6:26 am
>> just have time to remind you of our top story. the united states is flying manned surveillance missions over nigeria to track down 200 schoolgirls kidnapped by boko haram. here in britain, the prime minister is calling on boko haram to publish pictures of all girls to prove they're still alive. that's the latest here on bbc world uz news. thanks for joining us.

6:34 am
conform them on islam religion. everybody have a right to choose religion to follow. >> this whole part of nigeria is boko haram territory. to get around it, you need fire power, lots of it. we had 40 official vehicles packed with armed men to guard us. we're going with a local governor heading off to the scene of one of the worst attacks here. it happened last week. it was scarcely reported even within nigeria. this is hostile territory. the road we're driving on would normally be very busy. in fact it's almost empty because no one wants to drive alone here after the attacks. villages are deserted people are scared of boko haram.
6:35 am
the bridge outside had been blown up here last wednesday. two days earlier, the town was hit by an army of boko haram men. they arrived at 1:30 in the afternoon. we counted hundreds of burned out cars. boko haram didn't want anyone following them afterwards. and they massacred 375 people. again, almost unnoticed in the outside world. the town's center was simply destroyed. the sure scale of the destruction here is quite extraordinary. i hadn't expected this. you have to remember all the attention around the world has been on the abduction of nearly 300 schoolgirls. this is going on all the time in this part of nigeria. the governor came here to offer help and money, but the
6:36 am
survivors are working themselves up into a frenzy of anger. the nigeria government should be doing so little to fight boko haram. the crowd is getting quite angry here. is there a chance of danger still? >> we're going to compensate them for all losses. we assure them we are talking with the president and it's important. >> are you frightened? >> i am not frightened. >> there was no calming them. t the governor is lucky to get away unhurt. >> the governor and all of us are being thrown out by the anger of the crowd.
6:37 am
we're having to get back to our cars pretty quickly. all this anger isn't surprising. people feel utterly abandoned. they can't understand why the world that cares so much about the missing schoolgirls cares so little about the destruction of an entire town. borno state in north eastern nigeria. >> what exactly is the government doing to insure the girl's release. conflicting messages have been coming from officials. >> i'm afraid it's quite confusing. it's not unusual here in nigeria. there will not be a prisoner swap between the girls and the prisoners the government is holding of boko haram.
6:38 am
of course this fight between boko haram and government has been going on well over five years now. it's been highlighted by the terrible situation of teens who have been kidnapped. at the same time, another statement has been issued by a less senior official saying all options are open. perhaps that means there won't be a prisoner swap, girls for prisoners the government is holding. there will be other back channel negotiations. that's the best interpretation i can give you at the moment david. it's a confusing but not at all unusual. this is a very serious situation. it's a war between boko haram and government of nigeria. >> i expect any information to girls and their whereabouts is further ammunition for the government. presumably the idea of american missions over that part of nigeria would be extremely
6:39 am
welcomed? >> i think nigerians will be pleased to hear this concrete action we've had from the international community or just monitoring action. spy planes and so on. we've heard about teams from britain and america arriving here. we've had promises of what the nigerian government calls counter terrorism experts to come and help from china and france and other countries. the news of spy plane overflying nigeria now is the first concrete information we've had of something clearly happening. there's been a lot of frustration amongst nigerians about the wye the government appears to be lethargic. they were saying nothing about what was happening in the most. it was when this hashtag on twitter bring back our girls, which nigerians started. it spread around the world.
6:40 am
it got reaction from the international community. then the nigerian government started talking about what they're doing. >> that's mark doyle there. how the mighty fall. the former prime minister of israel is sentenced to six years in prison for corruption. he was convicted of accepting bribes while mayor of jerusalem. he has said he'll appeal it. i spoke to the times of israel and asked if he thought people expected him to serve the six years in prison? >> the sentence is uniquely hard. it's a precedent setting sentence. we think when he appeals the supreme court it may be reduced. it's hard to think he would not sit in prison for some period. he would be the first prime minister in history to sit in
6:41 am
prison. >> remind us about the corruption scandal. he has a list behind him, doesn't he? >> he does. he's had several cases. one minor conviction. couple of other cases have been thrown out. this particular case is extremely complicated. nine people were indicted with him. many of them today were also sentenced to years in prison. very significant finds. the former prime minister himself was given a million signing of a million. he's been sentenced for also accepting, not himself but his brother and money changing hands in complicated ways. it's remarkable the case was cracked. the sentence says a great deal
6:42 am
about the frustration that many israeli citizens feel and judiciary over a string of corruption trials in recent years. a finance minister has been in prison and other officials. >> i imagine this is curtains on his political career. does it have further political impact? >> it's hard to see a political impact. certainly a lot of people were hoping he would return as the great politician that hails from the right. also went far in negotiations with the palestinians. he's certainly not coming back. there are other people in that political space. the justice minister who's been israel's chief administrator in the latest round of negotiations and has tussled with the israeli
6:43 am
right wing end of the coalition is probably going to step into those shoes. it enhances her prestige as a person who will take over the political space. there are other poll tiiticiansl move in. few expected him to recover. i wonder how many of you have done this in your time? put in your name on google and see what they've got to see on the internet. perhaps you've seen it and would assume it is there at all. the european justice says people should be able to ask google toll delete dadata. google says forcing it to to remove data announces
6:44 am
censorship. the ruling has come as quite a shock to google. >> this is a big surprise. this case has gone up the courts. google won at previous stages. it seems they are shocked and surprised about this ruling. it comes from a spanish man having gone to his data protection authority and said there's an old story that keeps popping up about social security debts in the past. i want that taken down. the court decided that's right. the right to be forgotten now part of eu law means that individuals who don't like i information held on them on the internet can act to get it removed. it doesn't have to be unlawful information. every lawyer at every content
6:45 am
provid provider, every publisher will be pouring over this ruling and thinking what does it mean for us. >> every lawyer will be rubbing hands with glee. that's the point deciding what is not relevant, what is old compared to what others may say is there for public interest reasons. >> the commissioner who's backed strongly, this right to be forgotten, says this is triumph for individual liberty for people's control over their own data. goiogle isn't saying much yet. this could be hugely expensive. how many of us google ourself, don't like what we see? now this is an avenue of regress. >> the internet is so fast. that's why perhaps it would be difficult to process all this.
6:46 am
>> in a way. that's not the problem. the problem is that it's google which is most people's roots to information. even if that information is still there on some obscure website, people know if they can get it removed from google, that's their recourse. there will be some enthusiasm to do this. >> google would say we're just a facile at a tore. that's not our information. >> that's been google's side all alo along. we provide links. that's at the top court where it's being thrown out. police in beijing have detained a 62-year-old blogger accused of posting fabricated information on foreign news sites. fu is completely unknown in china. he posted stories on boxer, chinese citizens journalist website that operates from the united states. he's been accuse canned of
6:47 am
spreading rumors including one about chinese authorities harvesting organs from living people. john is in shanghai. >> here he is detained by police accused of causing harm to the chinese state and paraded on national television confessing to his crimes. i have smeared the nation and party he said. it's extraordinary in some regards. it's also part of a patent. he's one of hundreds of journalists, brloggers detained as a the government tries to curb the power of social immediate and threat to communist party control. he will certainly be charged at some point. at the moment as is often the case in china, his appearance in prison and confession on state tv has become long before a

6:51 am
international backing. his next top is southeast of the country where more than 40 were killed earlier in the month. richard reports from the city of donetsk. that's in the heart land of the separatists movement. >> in their apartments here in the city of donetsk, she and her daughter read a book by the famous poet. she is a strong supporter of ukrainian unity. now she fears for the safety of her family. >> even if there's a separate people's republic found here, i will have to leave. i won't be able to speak ukrainian, my native language. my friends are currently selling their houses and moving to western ukraine. people are afraid for their families. freedom is the most important thing for me.
6:52 am
>> when the official results of the referendum in donetsk was announced monday by pro russian separatist leaders, their plans became very clear. he declared it was an independent sovereign state. for him, the fears of the ukrainian speaking population seem of little concern. what about the impact on the economy of the declaring independence? this region is ukraine's industrial heart land covered with mines and factories. dating back to soviet need of much investment. >> if we became completely independent, it would be very difficult. where would the salary payments come from? a budget hasn't been worked out.
6:53 am
it would be difficult to survive without kiev or moscow. >> while these ethnic russians have been celebrating the declaration of independence here, they must also be aware of their absolute dependence now on moscow. now the absolutely critical question, how will the governments in kiev react to this declaration of independence? secondly, what will moscow do? will it agree to select this part of eastern ukraine? >> bbc news in donetsk. i want to bring you pictures from new hampshire in the u.s. after a police officer was shot dead when he was called to a housing complex. the house burst into flames. then this, a huge explosion and fire balls to follow. the officer had been responding
6:54 am
to calls of neighbors that heard the argument. the house itself was burned to the ground. his true and fearsome friend. that's how the photographer describes the nation. he's been taking portraits of the country's tribal traditions getting image outsiders rarely see. his pictures were recently published. he is giving us a look. >> this is known as the land of the unexpected. you really do feel like you're stepping back in time in a way. you can feel like there's first contact. it's that remote, that way off the beaten track. what's so fascinating is the clash of modernization of the west against the zone age
6:55 am
itself. that's what i've been drawn to as a photographer. covering society and looking at that clash of culture. august 23, 2011 this is the heart and soul of png along with the islands. missing out would be like not going to the congo. i wrote diaries. the diaries progressed in a way from plain old handwritten diaries to art books. i'm sketching, putting in clippings, making collages. they become part of my entire body of work. september 15, 2011, bird of paradise hotel, room 212. every town in png feels like a border town. they all have the frontier feeling, people coming and going, edgy vibe and life to it.
6:56 am
the gang thing is quite new. it's not something that's been around a long time. it's something that grew out of urbanization. 80% unemployment. i don't know anywhere many the world with that figure of unemployment. the conditions of that society, the unemployment has forced people to crime. we took the black water river. the water is so dark it's almost black reflecting the sky and clouds and the foothills. the tribal gathering in the high lands are essentially cultural festivals. thousands of different tribes coming together from all over to compete for fame and glory. it's stone age woodstock.
