8:00 am
since two weeks ago i think. this until last week was twenty four cases and i don't know most of. these people are totally dependent on the supplies delivered by the aid agencies they had to leave everything behind when they fled. and so they wait for hours in the dirt no one knows exactly what they're waiting for including hamid you know. i heard there could be plastic plates and blankets. we need everything. there are blankets in the sacks and cooking equipment to me just once food for his family rice supplies are running out this is all that's left even the prospect of repatriation is a bleak one. that burned down our mosques and villages we've suffered a lot we want to go home but how can we list safely there. while myanmar and bangladesh talk about the refugees returning home soon life in the camp
8:01 am
tells a different story here they're building streets and digging wells. we're doing it properly so that at last a lifetime this isn't something temporary. this well will supply water for years. the long term plan maybe to send these range of muslims back to myanmar but there's little chance of that for now this boy may end up growing up in a place where no child should have to. so the pope is on his way. for more on the pope's visit and going right hinge a crisis i'm joined now by they've grown up he's a journalist based in yang in beyond maher dave no pope has ever visit myanmar before why is france's going there now is it because of the revenge a crisis. well the catholic church this this the announcing of this trip was made
8:02 am
and late august just a couple days after this latest crisis started but the church has been adamant about saying this trip was in the planning stages months before and no one is disagree with that because it takes so much before you would actually put out an announcement like that and so this trip was originally put together because the vatican and the m.r. had just reestablished ties about six months ago and on some suchi went to the vatican to meet with the pope so that's why this happened. so now you've got this going on with this incredible situation your reporter is just talking about of course extended thousand ranjan muslims have led in the bangladesh during the past six months and now he is in a very difficult the pope is in a very diplomatic situation right now how's he going to address this issue it's impossible for him not to address that the question is how forcefully how firm will he be in support of the rohingya and one of the key things that already come out is the question of will he say the word rohingya which is very contour. most people in
8:03 am
this country refuse to identify their hands or who are stateless by that term they call them bengali which is to imply that they are illegal immigrants from bangladesh the ok and the leader of the archdiocese of yangon carnal charge longboat has asked the pope not to use that word but human rights groups are pushing for the pope to use it so we're really going to have to wait and see what he does here is some of the people i've spoken to local catholics who have added who are hoping that he will not use it because they are concerned that if he does that that will be to a backlash from buddhist nationalists against the catholic minority here ok so the pope is flying into a very delicate situation there is going to have to be diplomatic as it were if the pope does decide to talk about the range of crisis whatever term he uses to refer to that could he have any impact on that could he is he in any position to help. yes good question so you know there's only about seven hundred thousand roman
8:04 am
catholics in this country in a country of more than fifty million so they're quite a minority here. he's certainly going to going to have to talk about this issue the question of that i said before how friendly will he be and he's meeting with the state council the leader of the civilian side of the government on some fucci he meets with her tomorrow he will be meeting with the commander in chief of the military during this court treat or day trip separately that the senior gentlemen on long keep in mind here the government has no control over the military here so that's a very distinct thing and i'm from sochi and the senior general don't work in the best of terms with each other so how much influence can he really have on the general is really unclear and it doesn't seem like he can probably have a lot of influence on the general with aung sang suu kyi you know she's come under a lot of criticism for not speaking up on behalf of the right hand what influence he can have on her is certainly up for debate but most analysts i've spoken to say
8:05 am
it's unlikely that he can change the narrative in this country much the way most people in this country feel this issue because most people in the country support the military's campaign and don't agree with the charge of ethnic cleansing but what a lot of people say is he could have some impact on how the international community looks at this issue and in what way they may support on song suchi so that may be where he can have more impact say thank you so much for that update david greene about a journalist based in yangon myanmar. a red alert has been issued on the indonesian holiday island of bali as fears rise of a major volcanic eruption authorities have evacuated forty thousand people around mt gloom but the country's disaster agency says tens of thousands more still need to move airports have also been closed leaving many tourists stranded. the thick smoke and ash spewing from mt are gung approving a captivating spectacle for these tourists the volcanic activity has spurred
8:06 am
officials to raise the eruption alert to its highest level and expand the exclusion zone around the mountain to ten kilometers they've also been forced to close the island's international airports leaving thousands of tourists and business travelers stranded. because the. fifteen minutes ago it. never. got the moment. we got from a ship because. the ticket. so we don't know what's it like. as well as the disruption at the airport thousands of local residents have been evacuated from the area around the mountain the country's disaster management agency now says many more will have to leave their homes to avoid a possible eruption exactly when that might happen is the big known.

8:08 am
post-election deadlock may be nearing an end with signs that another grand coalition could be in the works after talks with the greens in the pro-business f.t.p. collapsed it looks increasingly possible that chancellor i'm going to michael's conservatism well again for government with the left of center social democrats the s.p.d. . germany's conservatives now say every new grand coalition with the social democrats is the best option the only alternatives are new elections or a minority government both options that party leaders want to avoid. i am skeptical about a minority government germany said big play in european politics we need to show stability. of the cd use parliamentary group leader for a counter called on the social democrats to live up to their political responsibility. if you have to partner up with one or even two of the parties
8:09 am
whenever you want to posit new law in the bundestag that might turn out even more nerve wrecking than forging a new coalition that's why i suggest we build a coalition with the s.p.d. . wouldn't address me to a speedy but for the s.p. deed and new grand coalition with the c.d.u. is far from a done deal. he says that the s.p.d. hopes a stable government can be formed that's why we're putting forward the idea of a minority government we're convinced it can work out even if it requires some courage. we need this country to take a big step forward germany cannot afford to simply carry on like this. social democrats say they won't sacrifice their campaign promises for the sake of another grand coalition. well for more on this we're joined in the studio by d.w. political correspondent mikhail good morning mcadam remind us again why the s.p.d.
8:10 am
is so reluctant to enter into another coalition with chancellor merkel's conservatives because it's been that before three times in the last four governments didn't really work out for the social democrats. did you party's been very successful and actually claiming the successes of the so-called grand coalition also including the minimum wage which was such a benchmark a social democrat policy and which in the end what then was viewed something that the chancellor also initiated so the social democrats lost out pretty badly in those polls which were now back in september and they don't want to go there again they don't want to do even five that and that's why it's soon as they saw the result they've basically ruled out another grand coalition and now of course we find ourselves in a very different position so the social democrats are afraid that if they go into another coalition they're going to be completely overshadowed by chancellor machall who is very very well regarded even outside of her own party so we can understand that to some degree in a report we've heard one leading s.p.d.
8:11 am
member saying that merkel should maybe try to lead a minority government maybe the s.p.d. could be helpful that way we got others in the s.p.d. calling for a fresh election just yesterday really so divided on this issue or is it just playing hard to get i think it's a bit of both i think we saw a rather remarkable u. turn from the end. of the pos week and basically he's saying that he would put this to a vote to party members anyway so this of course raising the greens and now the social democrats are kind of coming round to the position that it might become their responsibility that duty to at least stop talking but you mentioned fresh elections some were calling for the his initial ruled out this coalition as you said a report we heard one s.p.d. problem for a leading member of. yes bt also saying that maybe the chancellor has just lead a minority government maybe the s.p.d. could could support that in some way is the yesterday really so divided on this
8:12 am
issue about joining a coalition or are they just playing hard to get i think it's a bit of both i mean certainly there was consensus in the party that it really needed some time to reinvent itself to potentially go into opposition there was a lot of support for that but at the same time and this is also an opportunity to govern and we can see the prices rising and they will be able to push most likely be able to push through a lot more of their benchmark policies than they did in the past a grand coalition at least on paper how that could translate into practice of course we're still weeks so i def would months away from even finding out what that could mean you know thank you so much you know you political correspondent jim acosta. well it's monday today it's monday after black friday by friday marks the traditional start of the holiday season for american retailers but it's not just an american phenomenon anymore get home that's right the area that
