11:02 am
pack stand has decided to seal the premises of save the children charity located here on morgala road islamabad. the government says that the charity was working against the country's interest. now, their problem started after the attack on bin laden and the fact that one of their doctors was recruited by the cia to work with the false vaccination program. the government of pack stand said it has no doubt as to why it decided to seal the offices of this charity. >> for many years it was -- civil ngos were working freely without obeying the country's laws. the job jurisdiction was restricted to islamabad and they
11:03 am
were working in tribal areas of the country. but enough is enough. we'll not tolerate any organization working against the integrity of pack stand. >>reporter: how far, the organization's representatives in pack stand said that theirkistan said that their work is absolutely critical and that they were working in conjunction with the government of pakistan and that the ministries of pakistan were aware of what they were doing. they were also introducing new legislation in parliament making it easier for the government to close down any ngo seen to be working outside the domain of its charter and is accused of spying ors pee unanimouslying -- unanimouslying --sunanimouslying

s pee unanimouslyings pee unanimouslying -- marks the start of the working day. no one is too young to work. with children only able to earn $1 for a day wielding a chopper, the smallest of fingers are needed for families to make enough to live on. we have come here with world vision. one organization helping cambodia realized its goal of putting children like these into schools full time. it's also his
11:05 am
dream. i prefer to be in school he tells us but we need to money. across cambodia child labor still a problem. it is most blatant in the countryside countryside. we recent efforts to clamp down in the city have moved the problem from view but in rural areas, you just have to look a little harder. in this slum area around half the children work. as the eldest -- he is often the main income earner when her mother is working. >> it's very difficult. sometimes i find work on construction sites. >>reporter: a local nongovernmental organization wants to bring her to the protection of its center for full time education. >> they come from slum areas. >>reporter: but it is a hard job to convince the parents. >> to get money immediately for
11:06 am
their family so they can help them. some people say that they won't get the money. >>reporter: in its commitment to eradicating the most hazardous forms of child labor cambodia has taken a lead in asia-pacific the region of the world that's the most affected. it's also one of the least well quipped countries to cleave its -- equipped countries to achieve its target to end child labor by 2016. despite the challenges giving all children access to full time education, it's seen as the solution to break the cycle of poverty-driven child labor. >> actually it's become a national prize. although there's an international commitment. whether or not we can achieve 2016 or not but it is our
11:07 am
priority that we have to reach our commitment to the international organization. >>reporter: for those children carrying the burden of work maybe this will be the year their lives change. rob mcbride, al jazeera child's rights activists in india are accusing the government there of undermining efforts to ban child labor. last month the cabinet proposed changes to the child labor law which would allow children under the age of 14 to work after school or holidays. critics say it would allow children to be employed in dangerous industries. >> the level of education being provided is true and so many changes can take place. one simple way to end child labor is by giving children good education and making such arrangements that children and parents realize its worth. >> this is a senior specialist on child labor and says sending children back into school is not enough to eradicate child labor. >> we're talking about 168
11:08 am
million children across the world in child labor and that is up to the age of 17. and here in asia-pacific where i work we're talking about 78 million children in child labor. largely they're in rural areas working on agriculture. but we are seeing a trend increasingly especially in this particular region towards commerce and services. and we find that more girls tend to engage in services and commerce while boys remain in agriculture and very difficult and hazardous forms of work. it's not a matter of just putting a child in school and the problem is solved. it has to be multifaceted. you have to deal with the supply and demand side of this issue. starting with school is an extremely important step. it equips children with the skills to move on in life but if the child when he or she leaves
11:09 am
school at the age of 14 or 15 they're not continuing with their studies but are entering very hazardous work and it's an alarming number. so their entry into the labor market ends up being one where they are even more vulnerable and that perpetuates a life cycle of recycling of this problem. australia's prime minister has dodged accusations that the australian navy paid people smugglers to take migrants back to indonesian waters. migrants are reporting the australians offered the crews of their boats $5,000 to turn back. >>reporter: asylum seekers intercepted off the coast of australia. the government has introduced tough measures to stop people from attempting the journey. the australian military is
11:10 am
towing back people from where they came. but is a new tactic being used? paying people smugglers $5,000 each to turn back their boats. he didn't deny the allegations. instead, he said this. >> what we do is we stop the books by hook or by crook because that's what we've got to do and have successfully done. i just don't want to go into the details of how it's done because like a lot of things that law enforcement agencies have to do it's necessary, it's difficult, and at times i suppose it's dangerous work. >> let me put it -- >> and we'll stop with that. >>reporter: indonesian police are migrants are reporting that australians offered money to them to turn back last

month a french court has cleared the former imf cleave of aggravated pimping charges. he was accused of procuring prostitutes for sex parties. earlier the prosecutor in the case called for him to be acquitted citing a lack of evidence. barnaby phillips has that story.
11:12 am
>>reporter: what he said during the trial was, look it's not my morality that we should be bringing before a court. i should be charged strictly of course under french penal law. despite that his reputation has of course taken a battering over the past four years and it's difficult that he could ever revive his ambitions. perhaps he'll have to settle for a role in conference speaking because his expertise on global financial and economic issues is still widely respected. barnaby talking about his
11:13 am
reputation taking a battering. do you see a way forward for him in public life? >> it has taken a battering already since the trial is in new york. but obviously for him it's something very important. he's been acquitted of wrong doing. those issues are not condemned in the french penal system. he's been behind the scene in terms of -- now he's going to maybe have a larger place in a political debate. others see none at the forefront because of his reputation there but being more able to influence as sort of an additional party -- >> will he be accepted? >> depending -- his knowledge of economics will be accepted. it's definitely one of the top
11:14 am
french economists for sure. he did a good job at the imf. obviously he's not going to be running for elections. nobody's going to be voting for him to be in office but we've seen more shady politicians being known to actually have a say in discourse in international arenas. >> some say the acquittal was expected. what's your reaction to it? >> the specific case was something that is part of private life. i was more shocked by what happened in new york and at the time the new york event -- for him it's the end of a sequence of trials. he's going to take time off for the next few months but probably come back with helping maybe in re-election in a year from now. we're going to see maybe his political position of social liberalism being reinforced on the french scene thanks to him
11:15 am
being cleared of those charge >> has this started in i kind of debate in france? some of the details are hugely embarrassing and some say shocking. >> the debates on prostitution which in europe is something that's never been settled. the second one is also the fact that you really have two spheres here. the leading politician leading on the specific level of life or the rest of the population is struggling to have ends meet while others actually are in five star hotels and having the type of life that should be condemned and not attainable for other french citizens. >> all right, remi thank you so much french prosecutors are to investigate the germanwings

11:17 am
tunisian consulate in libya. we're live from triply. >>reporter: i've spoken to the tunisian foreign ministeroli. >>reporter: i've spoken to the tunisian foreign minister -- they are holding a strategic meeting, crisis meeting right now to try to work out what they're going to do next. now, we do know and these are reports which are connected to previous detentions of tunisians in libya. some are saying that all of this is maybe connected to a man called walid gleb. he's a member of libyan dawn which is the group that took
11:18 am
control of tripoli and forced the government last summer to move to the east. he was arrested here in tunisia in may. he's facing charges of kidnapping. now, in may, more than 250 tunisians were detained at that time. they were then released in tripoli. now, some people are saying that there may be a connection to what's happened at the tunisian consulate and this man who's being held here in detention. >> all right. thank you for that update from too aniesunis gunmen opened fire on a group of protesters marching against isil. 30 people were also wounded in that shooting. thousands of people in syria are fleeing fighting between isil and kurdish forces near the north of syria.
11:19 am
men, women, and children have been gathering at a border crossing near a turkish town. more than 6,000 syrians have crossed into turkey in the past week shia and sunni muslim communities have long lived side by side in iraq's capital but life in baghdad is increasingly divided and dangerous. many iraqis are living in fear because of the anti-shia ideology of isis fighters and the constant threat of car bomb explosions. >>reporter: this is home to a large shia community. it's always been shia but even here people are now too scared to leave their own neighborhood. >> life has become a living nightmare. everywhere you go there are car bombs and suicide attacks. we only leave the neighborhood if it's life or death. better to keep our movement to one place only these days because security is unpredictable. >>reporter: isil car bombs have had such an impact on these people that they're suspicious
11:20 am
of even traveling across the capital. >> last month two car bombs blew up at this corner where my grocery stand is located. look at the damage. we don't leave our neighborhood at all. >>reporter: across town the situation is much the same for baghdad's sunni muslims who after 2003 were forced out of their traditional homes in the capital and now live in just a few neighborhoods. >> we only feel safe in our neighborhood. i personally don't leave here. we fear arbitrary force. >>reporter: it's not safe to travel the streets of baghdad anymore. unfortunately, after 2003 baghdad split between sunni and shia sections with almost no sections of mixed at all. they've noticed the sunnis are increasingly marginalize. but the worry is the impact of
11:21 am
sectarianism. >> especially the kids when they wake up and open their eyes and the violence and the hatred and the killing. i think, as you know, the subconscious foundation that's built from 5 to 7 and in that period many kids -- i think the future we will face a real problem from the kids. >>reporter: there are still mixed neighborhoods across baghdad like this one. but they're normally more economically well off. now, this neighborhood in particular has been hit by several isil car bombs and the reason they do that is to try and keep up the sectarian tensions but it's not just isil. also the shia groups mount revenge attacks. many people are worried because of those two reasons that iraq might see a return to the kind of levels of sectarian violence it saw in 2006, 07 and 08 when
11:22 am
this country was nearly plunged into civil war >> a judge in the u.s. state of ohio has ruled there's enough evidence to charge two police officers one with murder over the killing of a 12-year-old african-american boy last year. tamir rice was waving a fake gun when he was shot by police in cleveland. here's more. >>reporter: thursday's decision by a cleveland judge comes just kays after a group of clergy and activists used a little-known law asking the court to order the arrest of the police officers involved in the shooting death of 12-year-old tamir rice last move. >> the people have decided to take the opportunity to make the government work for them. this is not a contradiction. this is not a sir couplecircumvention.
11:23 am
>>reporter: the shooting was caught on surveillance video. judge ronald adrian released his opinion thursday stating he found probable cause that office the officer be charged with negligent homicide and dereliction of duty. involuntary manslaughter and reckless homicide. >> this is more than about -- this is about a moral obligation to speak truth to folks in power when they refuse to. it's about a moral obligation for my little nieces and nephews who are on the streets of cleveland every day and i fear for their life. >>reporter: cleveland authorities have said that the officers mistook the weapon for a real gun. it took the sheriff's department more than six months to wrap up its investigation. the case was turned over to prosecutors last week. community leaders took advantage
11:24 am
of an ohio law allowing them to bypass prosecutors and go directly to the court. >> it's absolutely legal. there's an obscure provision in ohio law that allows an average citizen to file an affidavit with any reviewing magistrate that could force them to file a warrant in this case. >>reporter: the judge noted in his order, however, that his role was advisory in nature and he did not order the arrest of the officers. the judge's opinion is now in the hands of cleveland prosecutors benjamin crump is the attorney for the rice family. >> it's awfully persuasive for
11:25 am
the prosecutors to have his opinion now. you don't know how they're going to present to the grand jury so this precedent is really important that a judge has found probable cause so if it comes out different in the grand jury. the rice family is very encouraged by the judge's ruling. and most people around their community in cleveland are very encouraged by this. >> what will your team do if the prosecutor who says and as you're saying the case will now be going to the grand jury elect not to charge the police officers. next steps? >> there's a civil wrongful death lawsuit filed in this matter but the department of justice has just entered into aen consent decree with the city of cleveland. understand, it has been over six months now. it's on video.
11:26 am
everybody sees what happened there. the question for the family and many in the community is what is taking so long and that's why the cleveland 8, the local pastors, worked with us to present this to the court because they were very concerned about whether or not there was an attempt to sweep the death of this 12-year-old child under the rug brazil is the economic superpower of south america but as its infrastructure has expandsed and a new middle class has boomed murder rates have risen and economic benefits have eluded many young people. >>reporter: these moves combined with self-defense kicks and spins were conceived in the 1600s by black slaves in brazil. they were meant to trick their owners into thinking they were
11:27 am
dancing but it was really about protecting against colonial oppression. today it's being used to keep children alive. >> we know that our black teenagers have more chances of getting killed but we won't give up. >>reporter: despite wide perceptions of being an integrated fun loving society with the seventh largist economy in the world, brazil's murder rates are staggering. and according to local authorities violence here as in other parts of the world discriminates. young black men in brazil are two times for likely to be killed than white man. here, however, the chances of dying a violent death before you turn 29 are 13 times higher. for israel an activist for afterafro brazilian rights of his high

school class of 40 half are either dead or in jail. >> walking down the street should be done freely but if you're poor and black it has an implicit curfew. you avoid certain things so as not to give anyone any motives. >>reporter: police violence is not the only reason black men die here. drug trafficking, a general lack of opportunities, and even death squads are also to blame. >> access to education is hard so it's easier for teenagers to get a position in the drug market. no professional qualification is needed. >>reporter: schools are making a positive difference but there's a need for more effective policing campaigns. until then experts predict more black men will continue to be killed robbing a nation of one of its most precious assets. virginia lopez, al jazeera, brazil still to come in the news hour food for thought, we'll

11:34 am
widespread in almost every part of the economy. they're calling on the government to do more to stop it. >> as i child, you have the right to education, the inherent right to education. so that's violating the rights of the child. liberia is one of the poorest countries on earth and the ebola epidemic has not helped. lower growth forecasts, rising food prices and poverty are new realities facing liberians making eradicating child labor even more difficult. >> there are so many low income earners. most of them are females. they then have four to five children and can't take care of them and put them in school so they have to put their children in the streets to be
11:35 am
breadwinners. >>reporter: abraham's father left the family three years ago. since then he and his mother have struggled to earn enough to live. breaking rocks is the only thing stops him from making the choice between learning and eating. he knows getting a good education is the only way he'll be able to escape a life of poverty a solemn ceremony is being held -- 180 people lost their lives lives. here's more from cat mankathmandu reshows a prayer for the dead chanting prayers for the more than 170 people from the valley who were swept away by an avalanche triggered by the avalanche last april.

today is the 49th day of their deaths which marks an end to the mourning. these prayers are supposed to open the passage for rebirth for those who died. the survivors hope that this will bring a sense of calm. this man lost 11 members of his family including two of his children. >> these prayers are for the dead and for our peace of mind. i don't even know what else to say or if i should say more. those who died experienced terrible suffering before they died. many were buried alive. it's like they were murdered. >>reporter: for the survivors, the question now is what next. nothing remains of their village and way of life. the community is small, just around 400 survivors remain. all they want to do is go back
11:37 am

11:38 am
first ever european games is about to open up. the government is trying to use the event to put the oil rich nation on the map despite allegations of corruption. talk to us about the significance of these games in an already-packed sporting calendar. >>reporter: yes, we're in the capital. i'll try to stay with you and avoid being blown off this balcony. yes, these are a significant games. for the first time they're being held, the european games. so the organizers azerbejan, want to make sure people can get here. some of the events qualify for rio so that's another reason
11:39 am
that the european games should be taken seriously. and of course this is the biggest event that as bah january has ever held. we don't know yet how many world leaders will be there. there's been a lot of criticism of their human rights records and high level corruption allegations and because of that the german chancellor will not be attending. this has very much put azerbaijan in the international spotlight. these young volunteers are the first european games are clearly euphoric. >> i believe the games will change opinions about azerbaijan in europe and azerbaijan will
11:40 am
become recognized around the world because athletes are coming from 50 countries. >>reporter: 6,000 of them in fact competing in 30 events in this new olympic spinoff. the official price tag for the games is around a billion u.s. dollars but that's just a fraction of the amount that's been spent transforming the capital in recent years. the government wants to create a big impression internationally. image is everything. last month the fire in this residential apartment block took the shine off the celebrations. 15 people died. it raised questions about negligence. the building was one of dozens given a facelift ahead of the games using a highly-flammable material. and nepotism, the contractor is rumored to have close links to the president. razim who lost everything in the blaze and whose grandchildren are still recovering says he wants to know what happened to
11:41 am
$15,000 worth of promised compensation. >> the president has given the order for us to receive this money but somebody is not listening to the president. when he finds out we didn't get it he'll punish them hard. i know that for sure. >>reporter: his concerns speak volumes about corruption and accountability in azerbaijan. popular cartoons on social media have lampooned the authorities for lavish spending at the games at the expense of safety. officials have banned some western journalists and ngos from attending the games. >> they have just one purpose, to cast asia doe over shadow over azerbaijan. we won't damage the name of
11:42 am
azerbaijan. >>reporter: the president will hope to show that the dazzle at the games is more than just stars. >> but the corruption is only half the story, isn't it? >>reporter: that's right. there has been an unprecedented crackdown on civil society here in azerbaijan. human rights lawyers, activists, and journalists, dozens of them have been jailed for many years. some of them still in pretrial detention. those who have been tried observers say are unfair trials for various criminal offenses. but one thing they have in common is they have all been critical of the president who suck seceded his father and has been in power here since 1993. i should say to the government's credit that we're here and are able to report. we've been given that
11:43 am
opportunity. other foreign journalists and organizations as i was saying in that report like the bbc, the guardian newspaper, am necessity international, human rights watch as well have not been able to come here. but the organizers, the government the teams themselves who have made the decision to come here believe that political questions questions shouldn't get in the way of the sports themselves. so certainly the azerbaijan are hoping these games will be a big success. >> all right, thank you, robin. twitter's chief executive is stepping down after five years. he'd been under pressure to resign after posting big losses earlier this year slowing growth. the cofounder will take over at the beginning of july. a lack of funding and low levels of computer education are
11:44 am
undermining the potential for nigeria's tech industry to create jobs but an organization called inspire has plans to improve the sector. here's more from part five of our series cracking the code. >>reporter: they run a small online food delivery service called food i like. customers go online and order from local restaurants that have signed up with her company and she delivers it. she is working with about 30 restaurants. she calls it a food logistics service and sees huge business opportunities in the technology sector that could create employment for hundreds of thousands of people. >> the penetration has made it so that there's a need for convenience, there's a need for delivery, there's a need for that provision of logistics in
11:45 am
terms of meals for consumers. >>reporter: she got started with the help of inspire, an organization that helps launch tech startups. it's undered by the government. here entrepreneurs are taught the abasics of computer programming for online business ventures. inspire has helped over 50 businesses get started but there are still major challenges. >> we need to have patience in investing in the tech businesses. and people are beginning to see the next five to ten years tech businesses are likely going to be the realistic businesses like we have now. so most investors are stuck on brick and mortar kind of business. >>reporter: the government has tried to support tech-based businesses too but has faced problems. the government was supposed to built a so-called technology village here on this land to house over 1,000 tech businesses. a contract was awarded in 2007
11:46 am
but so far very little has been built. some analysts say the government should allow the private sector to take lead while it focuses on policies to improve things. >> the government needs to overhaul the entire school curriculum for it and technology so the next generation of student workers will be better equipped. >>reporter: the challenge is how to market their product especially in a city with low internet penetration and where most restaurants offer their own delivery service. but she's confident there's a huge market for her service. here's what's coming up. we'll have a round up of sports for you including a friendly armed wrestle between two australian rug by stars goes bad. that's coming up. that's coming up.
