most violent confrontations so far between police and protesters in hong kong. plus saving the glaciers where climate change is threatening the ice. ♪ but we will begin with breaking news because a palestinian woman stabbed an israeli civilian in the occupied west bank and shot by police and we are joined from there now, what information do you have? >> reporter: what we do know is that this woman who is apparently between the age of 25-30 was at the junction in the occupied west bank which is an area that serves several illegal settlements there and according to the israeli police she tried to approach an israeli soldier
5:02 am
with the intention of stabbing him, wasn't able to do so so she used her knife to harm a passersby, an israeli civilian who was apparently only likely injured. we understand that the army shot at this woman who is now being treated at a hospital in israel. there were some reports by eyewitnesses there that she was killed but we understand that she is still being treated, it's not confirmed she is dead and we even spoke to the palestinian team the red crescent who saw her after she was shot at that junction. she was still alive but they didn't allow the palestinian medical team to approach her. we understand from some sources that this woman is from an area that is south of bethlehem here in the occupied west bank, as well this is not the first incident this has happened recently at this junction in the occupied west bank.
5:03 am
on november 16 a palestinian man stabbed israeli woman and shot by the israeli army, was not killed and now is facing a trial for injuring that israeli woman. >> tensions of course have been particularly high over the last couple of weeks in jerusalem between palestinians and israelis, to what extent should this incident be seen in that context, could it trigger further violence, people have been talking about this? >> reporter: well, the tensions and the waive of violence we have seen in jerusalem has to a certain degree spilled over here in the west bank and we have heard of several incidents here happening in the last month or so and this is not the first time i mentioned that incident that happened a couple of weeks ago at the same junction, very high frustration among palestinians who feel they cannot be detached from what is
5:04 am
happening in east jerusalem and seeing a lot of high tensions here, as well and don't forget this part of the west bank is basically filled with israeli settlements, lots of settlers here and there are areas where this friction happened so it's not very surprising given the context of the tension that we have seen in both jerusalem and the occupied west bank and even other parts of northern israel between israelis and palestinians. >> thank you for the time being, live with that breaking news. let's go over to nigeria at this point because gunmen attacked a university in the north of the country, army units heavily engaging with the fighters who invaded the state university in the state capitol and we are joined live from there and what is the latest from that attack?
5:05 am
>> reporter: well, i've been speaking to people and it appears that what they are telling me is there is an on going operation still as we speak between the military and the suspected fighters in the city, helicopter and gun ships are still hovering above the area and residents are clearly hearing the sound of gunshots ringing across the city and sounds of explosions and many people taking cover in their own homes and terrified of being potentially caught in the cross fire and we understand from the residents of the area the fighters descended on the city in the early hours of this morning opening their fire and it appears on multiple targets at this stage, one of their main targets was the state university but they also i'm being told appear to have been trying to target a telecommunication tower in the area but so far i'm able to maintain contact with residents in the area. >> this is difficult for
5:06 am
ordinary people in nigeria with boko haram and striking soft targets like this. >> reporter: well, indeed and boko haram's campaign has been going on for five years now, but this year has been particularly transformative. we have seen the nature of the attacks become much more brazen target and earlier in the summer we saw the group shift towards trying to seize territory and control villages and town and government and military say boko haram has been sustaining losses on that front but seeing many towns flee towns and villages, 1.5 million people are believed to have been displaced by this on going conflict and the most vulnerable among them are children who either lose their parents in these killings or end up being separated from them as they see the violence, we were just back from one of the three
5:07 am
most effected states and here is our report. >> reporter: watch from hiding as boko haram slaughtered his father and elder brother and captured his mother and two sisters, three months ago when roughly 300 people seized his village and he showed up at this camp for displaced camp two days ago. >> translator: i saw everything, i was crying, crying on the mountain, there were times i did not have food or water for up to two days. >> reporter: and among the thousands of people displaced by boko haram violence are hundreds of unaccompanied children and their parents are either killed or separated from the children as they fled. there have been few if any reunions so far and for years boko haram attacked school children and abducting and pushing thousands out of school and now as the group shifts their tactics this includes
5:08 am
territory and children are no longer spared even in their home. for the camp for the displaced there are 65 unaccompanied children, some as young as two, at least 700 more are scattered in other camps. assigned to foster mothers and provided some food and education but local police agencies are pleading for more help. >> specific children need food and then books and instructional materials and if possible like books given to children. >> reporter: they believe the camps hold 2% of the actual number of displaced people, the majority seek assistance elsewhere. 16 unaccompanied children are at this catholic cathedral and these are boko haram fighters holding family got distracted and not looking behind she was

separated from her mother and four siblings. >> translator: they don't know where i am, i don't know where they are, that is all i think of. >> reporter: most of the children have been dropped off here by total stranger, some are suffering from serious trauma. >> the area of challenge is the area of conflict. we don't have professionals who we can go to and they have been traumatized. >> reporter: orphans from boko haram and the nigerian government and left them with no one and nothing. now, this displacement and this violence is a major concern politically as well for both the government and the opposition because it's likely going to have major implications as the country prepares for a much anticipated general election in the early months of 2015. this vote by all accounts is believed to be one of the most hotly contested elections in this country since the end of military rule in 1999.
5:10 am
>> reporter: we will leave it there, live from abuja. iraqi government look at the existence of 50,000 so called ghost soldiers in the army. these are false names on defense ministry payroll and it's likely corrupt officers are claiming extra salaries and nicole john'st john'ston reports. >> reporter: corruption on a grand scale and 50,000 soldiers, equivalent of four full division are either not turning up to work or simply don't even exist. and some officers may be pocketing the money claiming more soldiers than they really have, what ever is going on iraq's prime minister wants to find out and stop it. >> translator: i'm sad we pay the salaries during this period and all the salaries because iraq doesn't have the money and
5:11 am
they are fighting and some have been killed and receiving salaries and not present on the ground and that has been allowed to happen. >> reporter: new army recruit earn about $600 a month so the so called ghost soldiers could be costing iraq at least $380 million a year and this could be the tip of the iceberg. iraq's army is under scrutiny now more than ever, four army divisions collapsed when they were confronted by fighters from islamic state of iraq and isil and corruption is blamed as one reason for the collapse and isil controlling large parts of iraq they are under pressure to perform and needs money, almost a quarter of the budget next year will go to defense and security, that is a seven fold increase on last year. >> translator: actually $23 billion u.s. dollars cannot meet

5:13 am
soldiers in the army only and i think there is a major investigation going on now. >> you were a major architect in the government and how could it have happened and is this a story about corruption? disorganization? >> about corruption and i think each and every one in the army and the national police, we have not started investigating the police and the office of the interior and other intelligence agencies and need to go through them to reform them and get rid of the corruption inside to get rid of the nepitism. >> why is this happening now? >> i understand you have been in talks with the last few hours with the president of iraq. >> well, the corruption is
5:14 am
endemic and epidemic and most of the institutions now and we need to fight this corruption and there is massive corruption within the army, within the police, within the intelligence agencies and this is a must, we need to do it and we need to be really brave and we need to make a lot of this with our decision in the next few months. >> the situation is very difficult for iraq as it is with the fight against isil and we saw mosul falling already to mosul and that caused tremendous disquiet in baghdad of course. >> i couldn't agree more. and i think the fighting against corruption is as important as fighting against isis and probably we could not defeat isis with a corrupt army or corrupt police or corrupt iraqi
5:15 am
security forces. we need to clean our backyard, our home and then we will easily defeat isis. >> meanwhile u.s.-led air strikes continue within iraq territory, is it helping? is it harming? i've seen comments from you that there needs to be more unification as it were in the u.s. policy towards iraq and syria. >> there is a lack of synchronization between the policy of the united states of america in iraq compared to the policy in syria and they have to synchronize those policies, this is number one. number two, they unfortunately three out of four of these authorities, if you like, they come back with their load and they don't have -- they are not on target because they don't
