11:03 am
a slam extent fighter until you know i was watching porn you know yes for the visit . with the full of it they had nowhere left to run the wives and children of presumed isis fighters finally surrendered the biggest concern now is safety and security the u.n. has asked us to blur these women's faces not to reveal their names and most importantly not to tell anyone where they're being held because isis so do a lot of hatred in iraq they spilled a lot of blood and there are people here who would come over just to throw a grenade across the fence we filmed these women. in order to avoid unnecessary attention for their own safety the first thing many told us is that they never wanted to be here in the first place.
11:04 am
like the killing. them women. conceded that pleasing many of these things if not you need to think of them a little to nothing but. almost all of these woman a foreign as a dead giveaway isis encouraged bringing families over there terrified they fear the iraqi army they're even scared of aid workers and the goal is to. get. can. you tell us. what you did with a new. system school just does the fact she's a national she gives out is the registrants unit known to china she didn't have to have some of the best one on the any such as if she had said yes i feel
11:05 am
a bit nuts and then you will of us most me just as if it's not up to me it's not. good to have my alice yet another. woman we found russian speaking but the majority of turkish there are also. blue eyed europeans africans. asians americans many iraqis see them as something alien too far gone. too deeply to forget the ideology. of. the c.p. . that's the damage that's been doing enough.
11:06 am
to see if you think that i don't need not feel i need to be i'm not a young person pump luckily i can't have that much again that. you have a problem is the kids there are families from dozens and dozens of different countries currently held by iraqi forces among them more than a thousand children and many of them orphans many will be able to tell you their names because of trauma or age and getting them out is paramount. that people. care but for many. family groups including the un around the clock to establish identities but it's slow and dangerous work and falls to the woman to contacts relatives let them know they're still alive. my opinion.
11:07 am
of the new government in the moment. i. believe some of these women may be telling the truth. may not leave. just by being here some even to come. and it will be up to in iraq in their countries to establish guilt in the children. recently hostages in a war they don't even understand more i guess d.m. . from iraq. let's cross live now to him and rights activists and university professor at the. university in islamabad welcome to the program now iraqi security forces say there are more than a thousand such women and children at a camp. can you tell us or explain how big the problem actually is.
11:08 am
i'm afraid although i didn't or. your question is. i think the situation right now. i feel of course. the hostages and prisoners of war of course there are international human rights standards which needs to be followed through. so i think in this particular situation for children are concerned. as to see. there has to be some. national and. international human rights organizations international should be. making sure as for the children or console i think the they need all their rights needs to be protected as put individual women a concern i think this video video important because it's likely complex issue
11:09 am
because we also know that a lot of women join and also they were party to and they were also in war in this terrorist activities and also inflicting violence on this i think it needs to be properly investigated to be have. to know more and i think that we had. to to. find out. the kind of what kind of mind said this these women subscribe to anyone if they had not suspect you know and if they come from other countries once they will do is a deep it created i would believe that this should be declared as a green sort of citizen and been able to be created i think that state should have the responsibility to continue to mourn monitor their activities. i think it is fairly complex because of you also know in terms of agenda. takes you know not to
11:10 am
the war sometimes the men will just follow if they have. not really knowing what it would if knowing what they have what they would do would do in war and even if we've been at times do not really agree to that they don't have many options but i think in this case there's a lot of women who while a deadly game and also dead bodied men you know who who would basically from iowa said. that a plea of inflicting violence on this but i think what is very much of that is international law that in. national standards which are there you know so that needs to be four hundred one should make sure that. the. rights are not widely to give an agreement of want to have certain rights in the sense that the need to have
11:11 am
a proper agenda. you know the legal are also given the. legal process to under. so i think under no circumstances especially civilian or people who have been. captured particularly the men and children i have to be very careful. for the violation. these games presently ver touched on a number of issues and it's obviously a complicated issue here because what the women have done in the past or who they followed but it does seem a rather large problem with with around a thousand women and children there and you touched on this about who is to take responsibility because at the moment the iraqi government has to take responsibility and they come from about fourteen different countries so what is going to happen if those countries refuse to take them back.
11:12 am
they refused to do it i mean they gave i'm so sorry i mean your voice is not that clear but what about i understood your if i understand your question of course if those countries are not going to take them back. and if they belong to they belong to some of the i think certainly. international human rights organization needs to be brought into this issue i think it would un. system human rights commission needs to be involved in that and it is fairly. situation utah needs to see because. somebody would go. to the we all got to work i think of course they had to be if you.
11:13 am
were sick you should back in good old godfrey's what do you still see. because it is a new challenge it is a new situation and i think it's absolutely. the community needs to resign we've run out of time here it should be to. his honor we've done our time there's so much to talk about on this issue but it's really interesting to have your thoughts on this as i bury their human rights an activist at the university of new university professor in the. university in as line about thanks very much. these are live pictures from barcelona that you can see on a screen now where pro independent protesters are demonstrating on catalonia national day ahead of a secession referendum in just three weeks time the catalan government announced the referendum on september the sixth the very next day the spanish high court banned the move huge rallies and now expected throughout the day with the referendum itself taking place at the start of next month despite madrid banned
11:14 am
catalonia insists it will declare independence within forty eight hours if there's a yes vote. but spain fears the vote for a number of reasons if catalonia gains independence spain would lose almost seven percent of its territory and the riches party that it will also lose over seven million people or a fifth of its tax earnings twenty percent of exports would also go as would one third of spain's olympic medalists in addition catalona a year round visitor attraction gets a quarter of all spain's tourist but pro independence feelings have been growing for a number of years now with protesters pushing their message through colorful headline grabbing rallies let's take a quick look back. the
11:15 am
i. think. a new round of strikes will hit france tomorrow as unions continue to show their rage at emanuel micron's a new labor reforms the latest poll shows sixty percent of those close to worried about the president's plans which and due to come into force next week artie's polyploid has moved from paris his popularity really slumped over the summer he's now got the lowest approval ratings according to one poll of any french president at this point into their presidential terms and one of the biggest reasons for this
11:16 am
slump in the ratings is the labor law reforms that he wants to push through that's going to make it easier if he manages to push them through to hire and fire workers especially for small and medium businesses he was elected on a pro-business platform and he wants to give small and medium businesses greater flexibility here in france to allow small companies to bypass trade union agreements and here in lies the problem the trade unions here on happy about these reforms they see all this is an attempt to weaken their influence and to diminish their power here in france where they traditionally have rather a lot of it french work is a very highly protected with the labor laws as they currently stand. but there is high unemployment here in france that is something that emanuel macron has said that he is determined to tackle by pushing through these changes to the labor laws to morrow is set to be the biggest test of his presidency so far because the two
11:17 am
big trade unions here they are going to be calling a general strike and they're going to be demonstrating on the streets of many cities here in france including paris against these reforms emanuel micron himself remains unequivocal he says that he has a strong mandate in order to push through these reforms in order to implement these changes to the law and on friday he had a thing or two to say about the people that oppose him take a listen. to shoot it in detail. i will be absolutely determined i will not yield in any way not to slight because not to sue next not to extremists you six and actually the french government spokesperson tried to back pedal a little bit on those comments by saying that actually he was referring to former presidents over the past thirty years. to rank who didn't have the courage to
11:18 am
push through these reforms they were always watered down in some way and he said that courage takes great risk nevertheless shaun the socialist leader here in france he had a quick witted response to. take a listen to what men and sean had to say. cynics slackers all in the streets on two worlds and twenty third september. alcoholic's people who are nothing illiterate slackers the declarations of love from across to the french are multiplying well it's not all the trade unions who are going to be protesting here in france tomorrow emanuel micron's team spent a lot of the summer courting some of the trade unions here in france and making peace offerings and it appears to have. one leader of a rather more aggressive trade union here has said that they will not be participating in the strike to morrow and that there's no point starting a fight when it's already over so you can see my team has been using this sort of
11:19 am
divide and conquer approach towards these reforms towards the trade unions we're going to find out to morrow if that approach has worked we'll be back in a couple of minutes just after this short break. it's. what politicians do something good. to put themselves on the line to big get accepted or rejected. so when you want to be president i'm sure. more so more want to be rich. but you'd like to be prosperous like that before three in the morning can't be good. i'm interested always in the waters of my.
11:20 am
small seemed wrong when old quotes just don't call. me old yet to say proud disdain comes to educate and in the game equals betrayal. when so many find themselves worlds apart. just to look for common ground the. welcome back to the program three civilians have been killed and two in hospital following an anti taliban raid in afghanistan's eastern profits of nine go ha a warning now you may find the following pictures disturbing the attack was carried out by afghan special forces on saturday night all five victims were from the same
11:21 am
family the mother and two children died while the father and daughter survived the raid with injuries according to officials two taliban commanders were also killed and three more injured during the incident. there were. was little girl who was a little. bit more about the world at. that level said whatever the. mother said lavender about her bedroom i'm still the she. was the refuge. were people said well there was or was this room for. the so it was the reason the sort of where i'm going. wrong because i'm every woman . whenever i'm with.
11:22 am
you that. you know. that. meanwhile the un's assistance mission says more than sixteen hundred civilians have been killed and nearly three thousand six hundred injured in afghanistan during the first part of this year the report also shows the number of civilian casualties due to strikes increased by forty three percent this year compared with twenty sixteen the figures were released after the us president donald trump and i was an expansion of the u.s. presence in afghanistan he previously been critical about the afghan military campaign. we will also expand authority for american armed forces to target the terrorist and criminal networks afghanistan is a total and complete disaster let's get with it get out of afghanistan president
11:23 am
since he has no blue or foreign policy of the ground situation in afghanistan not easy interested in what harm he's going to cause because all groups as well as to civilians in afghanistan he has decided to send in at least four thousand more troops and also increase in the attacks which is causing civilian casualties which is going to isolate america from the overage of going on needs only the taliban have been opposed to us to president trump now the average of the un is going to hate america for what it is doing to the common people and most of the attacks which have recently been cut it out because of the very men and children that have been targeted and not even the men and not a single taliban has been hurt in those so it is what intelligence were battling were strategy and heartless conduct of
11:24 am
a few of all. my top top story now the u.n. security council is expected to vote on a resolution on whether to impose even tougher sanctions on north korea following its latest nuclear test while for more details now will cross live to came in from the pain he joins me live from new york bring us up to speed on the developments. well the world is watching the u.n. security council as people are aware north korea and the united states have been exchanging threats for the last few weeks and now north korea has tested a hydrogen bomb now at this point russia and china are calling for a diplomatic solution to the tensions on the korean peninsula and we've heard russian president vladimir putin speaking in a phone call with german chancellor merkel talk about how the actions of north korea may be threatening global security let's take a listen to what he said fleda made putin an angler merkel have strongly condemned
11:25 am
young's violations of the un security council's resolutions the league has noted that these actions pose a serious threat to regional peace and security the leaders agreed that a solution to the crisis can be reached through diplomatic means only for the resumption of talks involving all interested parties. now the first draft of the resolution that was proposed was rather harsh but we understand that a more mild version of this resolution will be put forward in the u.n. security council the first draft of the resolution called for an oil embargo which would essentially of outlawed and forbid any country from exporting oil or natural gas to the democratic people's republic of korea however the newer version of the resolution does not have an a full embargo but it simply caps the amount of oil and natural gas that the d.p. r. k. can import now the resolution goes on to freeze the assets of kim jong un and top
11:26 am
leaders of the democratic people's republic of korea all over the world essentially freezes their assets does not allow them to keep bank accounts or what not and the resolution goes on to support the six party talks so this resolution which will go before the united nations security council there's a very good chance it could be passed by the security council now that it's been adjusted and it no longer calls for a full oil and natural gas embargo. and it looks like the call for a diplomatic solution and negotiations and six party talks that has been the position of russia and china from day one seems to have prevailed. ok thanks for filling us in on the details that kind of reporting from new york. so. don't forget to check us out on social media on facebook twitter and of course our web site but i'll be back at the top of the next hour so stay with us.
