then they brought me to bangladesh. is now searching for her mother she hopes she also made it to bangladesh jannat doesn't even have a tent she sleeps out in the open. more than half of the refugees here are children the relief organizations and the government of bangladesh aren't able to support them fully. everything is in short supply tents food and medicine there's just one hospital in the camp where a handful of doctors work around the clock. when they are on the run the heat and the long track are very hard going for those driven from their homes most people arrive here in very poor condition. the most serious cases are treated in the hospital in the provincial capital gong many refugees have been maimed by land mines or carry the scars of bullet wounds all of them accuse the myanmar's soldiers
5:04 pm
of brutality. just like. me and maher and bangladesh have formed a joint working group to discuss the repatriation road injure refugees but very few actually want to return and let's take a look at some of the stories making news around the world u.s. secretary of state rex tillerson has paid a surprise visit to afghanistan to discuss washington's new strategy president ashraf ghani felicity reiterated the u.s. his commitment to working with kabul to bring peace to the country meeting took place and failed the u.s. is the largest base in afghanistan. my fifty year old german man linked to a far right extremist group has been sentenced to life in prison for murdering a police officer last year valve gang p opened fire when police raided his home to

5:06 pm
location for the last thirty five years working with the host communities on various development work but this time when this ring of people came in we work in multiple sectors number one we work in water and sanitation area so you constructed almost eleven thousand. dialects. a large number of people then we also constructed one thousand plus doers so between these two for four hundred fifteen thousand people with these two services we also have fifty. mobile clinics that runs and support every day eight thousand people in initial and they're backed up by dennis deadly clinics will find mr will by doctors and that's ok so it's man on the whole i was in high g. everyday i say dr thank you the donor conference i mentioned earlier has brought the total international commitment to about three hundred forty million dollars
5:07 pm
what will that money be used for actually there's an estimation of the cost required to support holistically for the next six months is something like four hundred and thirty five million dollars so this players was to every member country of the united nations to see how that they can support to point to rupa that cost because it this whole thing cannot be left in bangladesh so this three hundred thirty five million dollars is raised against the new requirement of four hundred forty million dollars for the next six months and what else does bangladesh need besides money. of course. basically a lot of initial support in making sure that these people who came from myanmar they go back to their home and there's an international support needed because these people started going home is in myanmar and they're supported to kill process
5:08 pm
that needs to be negotiated and supported by in that initial sanest members and that's more critical because the current interventions are only temporary unless we really had just done the language causes of the problem high people can invite people from from that they're now in from that area so that they can that is just and people can go back in and voluntarily leave there safely and with dignity then it's not going to happen and that has to be ensured through dialogue between not only bangladesh and me and mine but also through an international process that. pulls up what is needed right dr mohamad from the you mentioned support from the brac relief agency thank you my apologies for talking over you a little earlier. japan's prime minister shinzo has won a resounding victory after taking a gamble by calling snap elections because coalition government is set to retain its two thirds parliamentary supermajority that would give him a free hand to push through reforms and time to persuade
5:09 pm
a reluctant public to remove constitutional restrictions on japan's military. fresh from a nice time steve election victory japan's prime minister shinzo abbott pledges to tackle what he's called the country's two main problems so it's an aging society a tense situation with north korea these are some of the national issues we face and i will do my utmost to lead this country as its prime minister out just like your. lot of us. putting up a rose that for every state one conservative has many to paint his ruling coalition retained its two thirds majority in the lower house. these two thirds majority is important it gives abbott the numbers needed to revise japan's pacifist constitution which restricts the military to self defense but abas do need to convince the japanese who have to pass any constitutional changes in a referendum. after the constitutional commission has come up with
5:10 pm
a concrete plan will need to explain the amendments to the public i don't see my party's win as reflecting public opinion about changing the constitution it kind of one of them has. called a snap election less than a month ago pushing elections forward was a master stroke of politics. his rival yuriko quaker the governor of tokyo was rising in the polls but had little time to prepare the party only won a few dozen states. as a leader but is deeply unpopular the anxiety about north korea run the weakness of the opposition has now played in his favor. so well known russian journalist attorney feldman gal is in the hospital after an intruder stabbed in the neck and work sonnenfeld is deputy editor of echo moscow one of only a few outlets for independent journalism in russia echo employees reports of the
5:11 pm
attack used pepper spray against a security guard in order to get gain entrance to the radio studio and she should proceed to be in a serious but not critical condition. i did w. correspondent and we show in joins us from moscow welcome and emily let's start with the condition of the tonya falcon gala what do we know. well we know that she's undergone an operation now and in a moscow hospital and that she's been placed on an artificial respirator and in an induced coma so doctors say that her condition is rather serious and that's that's all we know at the moment what is the latest what is known about her attacker. well police say that he's a foreign citizen though it's not clear where he's from at the moment that's not been confirmed some sources say he's israeli there's a video of his interrogation that was shown on state t.v. where he's speaking in russian and he says that he has
5:12 pm
a telepathic connection to touch on a fellow can go hour and that she's been somehow sexually harassing him since two thousand and twelve via this telepathic connection so it's all rather strange and sources say that he may of course have psychological issues but there's another interesting detail there because the editor in chief of. the says that he also had a hand drawn map of the building and apparently he went straight to touch on the falcon goers office so he obviously had had a plan despite despite the issues that he may have have we're waiting to find out more about that so that there's speculation since moscow has been described as russia's only independent news radio station that there is speculation that this might be a reason for the attack. well yeah we don't know but of course there is a back drop of pressure against increasing pressure against independent media
5:13 pm
outlets like homo squee journalists from the station say that for them threats you know online and so on are commonplace and there were actually banners hung across from the offices of at home muscularly a few years ago that read traders and the russian journalists union says that the attack is attack and attack against freedom of speech now it's interesting that there has been a rather strong official reaction to this as well united russia apparently asked the head of the investigate take to get to a committee of russia to take this case on personally and there's been a reaction in the duma as well the head of the duma committee for information policy and technology said that this is a violent attack that that it cannot go on punished and that's interesting because state t.v. of course is is kind of part of creating this backdrop of a drop of pressure in fact two weeks ago they showed a report about hamas cui where they claimed that we were agents of the of the u.s.

state department and it also showed that john a fellow can go or you know short a militia in mosco thank you. take a quick look at some sport there were bizarre scenes in venice as an unknown local won the city's annual marathon twenty twenty five kilometers into the race and leading rather a leading group of six of us took a wrong turn of the following a wayward motorcycle it took them a few hundred metres before they realized that mistake would cost them precious minutes i have finding out took full advantage of the chaos and became the first italian for twenty two years to win the venice martha. here's a reminder of the top stories at this hour here on the double the united nations is appealing for more than four hundred million dollars in aid whole range of mostly refugees so far the international community has only pledged three quarters of that more than six hundred thousand by him just have fled to bangladesh since late
