6:02 am
to land four hours ago, and there was no report of the game. it was on the way to a town, a small town through to the papua new guinea border, and this is in a remote part of indonesia. it lost contact 15 minutes before, in a mountainous area, officials in the region say the weather was very bad. there's no report of the plane landing in any other small airport in that part of indonesia, and the search has been halted. it's evening in papua, it's dark, and they'll start against in the morning, trying to search for the plane. it's an indonesian plane, an rgr 42 type of model.
6:03 am
this is a twin engine plane used in these remote areas in indonesia. there was an accident there at this airport five years ago. 10 people died at this small airport in papua. >> the search has been called offence seven draws in. you mentioned mountains, it has a lot of jungle cover, hasn't it? >> exactly. there's a lot of forest, no roads, and that's why most people in papua are forced to fly if they go from one place to the other, and often there are accidents in that area because it is seen as spooky scpm unpredictable, and that is something that pilots are
6:04 am
telling us. >> thank you for that an i.s.i.l. suicide attack has killed 17 security personnel in anbar approvals. it happened in harari, up to the village of fallujah. two trucks with explosives targeted soldiers and shia militia men. iraq's prime minister haider al-abadi ordered military commanders to face trial for abandoning positions in ramadi this year. located in the anbar province, ramadi is the heartland. in may, they battled i.s.i.l. in a 3-day offensive. i.s.i.l. pushed out forces, and said anyone of officer grade or above that left the post must be court marshalled. we have more from baghdad. >> haider al-abadi came out ratifying recommendations that has been made to him, and
6:05 am
members in iraq's military that conducted an investigation into officers abandoning their post when i.s.i.l. took over the city of ramadi last year. the prime minister is agreeing with the assessment of the military officers saying any of them were in the army, abandoning their posts, must be court marshalled. it's not clear when they'll happen or if they have happened behind closed doors. this is following up on hours, and hours of investigations by members of the iraqi military. they came up with the recommendation, and it was previously recommended that the previous prime minister and members that abandoned their post should be court martial led and that may happen soon the advisor to the iraqi league in the u.k. joins us. was this distinction expected, and what do you thick will be
6:06 am
the reaction. >> well, first of all, before i go to your answer, i think we need to look at something important. we have had a parliamentary committee. it was investigating a fall of the more dramatic fall of mosul. this committee was about to public findings, there was a lot of controversy about the findings in iraq. the scep, the former prime minister who travelled to europe on an u.n. official visit. all these things, in my view are linked. why are we now, in terms of haider al-abadi, looking at the fall of ramadi, and looking at a dramatic and disastrous fall of mosul. it was expected in any ruling state to court martial anyone that does not follow the rules. however, we need to follow the rules equally and more effectively as we go along.
6:07 am
>> we have anyone of officer grade and above will face a court marshall, how will that effect the moral of military in what is a difficult time in the battle of i.s.i.l. >> i don't think it will have a huge impact, why? >> the iraq army is not trained or equipped. i don't think in any event anyone is expecting the army to withstand the big assaults, from the i.s.i. s against them. the more leading roll that has been taken was to confront i.s.i.s. was the militias, supporting the army. they are taking a back seat role to effectively carry out the battle against i.s.i.s., i think we knew to strengthen the army and investigators as to why they withdrew from those places, taking the roles and putting them on trial. >> we know that haider al-abadi
6:08 am
revitalized recoveries with reforms, reducing corruption and bolstering the military. will that go towards improving staffility. first of all, we need to understand that corruption in iraq does not concern individuals, it institutionalizes. the millions has been looted from the government coffers, have financing armed militias who are backing political parties who in turn are using them for their own benefit. unless they start with number one, him resigning from the parties, accused of credit corruption charges, secondly, we need to reform the judiciary that it will carry out duties against those accused of corruption, we are not going to achieve anything. i don't think haider al-abadi started with us. what he did was name and shame individuals.
6:09 am
that is not the way to go forward. we need to tackle the deep state that is accused of a number of non-governmental organizations of being deeply corrupt and unrepresentative of iraqi people, that is the reason why we have thousands upon thousands flogging the streets, demonstrating against the government. unless we treat the root causes of problems, we are not going to produce anything. >> good to speak to you. pro-government forces are backing houthi rebels for control of the third-largest. fighters say 50 houthis have been killed in tiaz. south-west of the capital sanaa, the main security headquarters was taken by pro-government forces on saturday. they are also in full control, which had substantial oil reserves, and that means they hold five of yemen's six
6:10 am
provinces in the south. >> in pakistan, the home minister of punjab and 11 others have been killed in a suicide attack. 32 others have been injured. rescuers are on the scene trying to help those buried under the rubble children are among dozens of migrants boarding inflate able rafts in turkey hoping to reach cos. this group is mostly from iran. if they coach cos, greek authorities will struggle to deal with the large numbers of migrants. emma haywood reports it's unclear who started it. but there was no holding back. with anger, frustration and suspicion boiled over under the intensity of the summer sun.
6:11 am
many had come hoping to get the papers to allow them to leave cos for the mainlands. the police station was closed, and disappointment and desperation turned to chants of freedom. [ chants ] some here say others are getting preferential treatment. >> no papers. what happened? please. please can you help. >> reporter: the situation on cos is becoming increasingly urgent. a loaf of bread is precious. some people have found shelter and even a shower. but the facilities are being criticized. >> in camp there is no electricity. no water, and no food. no food. there is in camp, women and boys. they are not giving us food. >> hundreds of migrants are moved on.
6:12 am
the boat left for athens on friday. a passenger ferry where syrians will be given priority started to operate. it will act as a floating reception center. every day there are more arrivals, many crossing the short distance from turkey. greece was not prepared for this, and athens called for help from the outside world. it is, though, still waiting meanwhile, 300 migrants rescued off the coast of libya are on their way to italy. at least 40 on the vessel were suffocated below deck. it's believed they were overcome by engine fumes. it was trying to reach the italian island of lampedusa. >> there has been desperate scenes in macedonia, where hundreds of migrants are trying to board a train, bound for serbia, which borders hungary. migrants are trying to reach there before a fence is built to
6:13 am
keep them out. >> in china, 112 are confirmed dead in explosions on wednesday. 95 people are missing. there are fears that toxic chemicals are leaning into the area. a warehouse is said to have been storing up to 700 tonnes of cyanide. 70 times more than what it should have been holding residents are worried about the short and long-term effects of the explosion. >> right now we don't feel good. environmental pollution does not go away in one or two years, it's dangerous for the next generation. thousands of volunteers are helping those affected by the blast. >> reporter: well, the volunteer machine is a well-oiled one. thousands came to the city to help, and here they are handing out clothes, bottled water, food, and the most important commodity of all, and that is gas masks.
6:14 am
some have been handed out a short time ago. we are inside the exclusion zone, and the epicentre of wednesday night's multiple explosions is about 1.8 kilometres. ch is as far as it's safe to gone at the moment. here you see some of the apartment blocks where they catered for people, people are hurriedly evacuated from apartment blocks thursday, and late on wednesday night. more than 6,000 people have been moved. many are not housed in temporary shelters across the city. this morning some of those people came to protest outside of a news briefing in a building given by government officials. they are demanding that the central government do more to help them. saying that only the volunteers have been giving them any assistance at all. and are saying that government leaders should come to the city to see for themselves the scale of the destruction, the
6:15 am
devastation. the death toll, of course, is continuing to rise. we know that 95 people are still missing. 85 of them are firemen and 58 people remain in hospital seriously injured. it is shaping up to be, really, one of the worst accidents in chinese history coming up in the newshour - russia - people hold on to their traditions, but the country's booming oil industry is creating challenges. protecting natural heritage, we follow a trail of poachers in senegal's national park in sport, jason day is in contention for a major again. action from the u.s. pga championship later this hour. south south sudan's
6:16 am
government will push on with peace talks. it's hoped that the president will meet with the rebel leader. camps are striking pressure to strike a deal before deadline risks sanctions. south sudan's president and rebel leader had a decades long civil war. current conflict erupted after it reacted in 2013 under his leadership rebel factions captured a string of towns. president f.i.f.a. used troops to track the rebellion. no conclusive deal. >> this is a special project leader at the institute for justice.
6:17 am
she joins me. good to have you with us. as we said previous attempts to end violence have been violated within hours of being signed. do you think we'll see sincerity on both sides to sign a deal. >> i don't. it's a rhetoric in the language that we are hearing, coming at us at the moment is not what i consider positive. or indicative of earth of the sides willing to let on and forward a peaceful way. i don't see the real commitment, language of reconciliation or peace coming out of either of the sides of talks, or, indeed, from some of the leaders. >> but this is the last chance, isn't it, for both sides to reach a deal. if they don't reach a deal by the monday deadline, south sudan will have sanctions slapped on
6:18 am
it by the international community. >> yes, indeed. i am not sure it's something that is considered from either side of the parties. i'd like to thing the recent statement and, indeed, involvement, in the process, would have added pressure. i doubt very much whether much will hinge in south sudan. there is a sense that i don't know, there's an a stalemate between the parties, which i don't think will be solved. >> you mentioned i got that, the east african organization managing the talks, you don't sound like you think highly of the way they are handling the talks. >> i think i agree with civil society and the number of international actors. from the beginning we have not seen comprehensive, inclusive
6:19 am
processes being led, and i think, you know, when the first and second and third agreement, we should have realized something else is needed. i'm not sure what that is. and at us at the moment it is not working. >> we need a far more inclusive process, we need to bring the society on board and religious leaders. that is not happening at the moment. we need a shift in what is happening. certainly we need a media. i don't think anyone trusts anyone. that is a process. >> thank you for that. good to have you with us, speaking live from cape town. while the talks continue, 40 people have died in a cholera outbreak in south sudan. reports from where the government is struggling to

6:21 am
and are not making deliveries to remote areas. they say that they now see water tankers once a week in their neighbourhood. the lack of access to clean water is causing cholera outbreaks. during the recent outbreaks in jooub ah 1400 people -- juba h 1400 were affected. 41 dies. >> this woman says her nephew was on the verge of dying. by that time, it was also spent. sometimes the whole family has to drink treated water. >> the problem is the government nose how much we suffer, we are living in a bad situation. >> reporter: aid groups say ending the war and building essential services must go hand in hand with better education. >> i have clean water, lat reens and hygiene, it's an endless thing, it has to improve to get rid of cholera.

6:30 am
took the opportunity to attack former governor jed bush. >> i find it somewhat curious that jed bush is doubling down on defending his brother's actions in iraq. but if he's going to do that, he should present the entire picture, and as you know that includes the agreement that george w. bush made with the maliki government in iraq, that set the end of the 2011 as the date to withdraw american troops, that was done under george w. bush. >> he made statements over the last couple of days that were incredible, trying to justify a war that can't be justified. i don't know if you saw his recent statement, the united states has to prove to iraq that we have skin in the game. thousands of lives have been lost, wounded worriers that i love all over the place, and he said we have to prove we have
6:31 am
skin in the game. i think it may be one of the dumbest statements i have heard. skin in the game. we don't have to prove anything huge protests across brazil on sunday to call for the impeachment of dilma rousseff. her approval rating has nose dived. this report from rio de janeiro. >> reporter: it resonates among brazilians, calls for the ousting of the president and her workers' party. less than a year after she was elected. dilma rousseff's approval rate is at 8%. the main route is the corrupt government. it's not only that. look at the economy, how it's weakened in the last, i don't know, couple of years. >> reporter: brazil is marred by a corruption scandal. the state-owned oil giant.

the president calls for early elections after reforms were blocked by law-makers. if his party secures the majority. he will be prime minister. the rivalry has created a split in the sri lanka freedom party, that could hand the united party an edge in the elections. the timing could be important. u.n. human rights report on the war in the north is due for release after the vote. >> reporter: this direct in sri lanka's north-west has been making headlines throughout the parliamentary election campaign, and there's good reason why country's former president is campaigning to get back into parliament, get back into politics from this area. now, the big question many
6:35 am
people are asking is given the expectations, how many people, how many potential voters are going to turn up at the ballot box. it could perhaps determine the results particularly for the former president. now, they are suggesting that if it's a voter turn out, an enthusiastic turn out like in jan when the president was rejected by voters, it could be the end of his political career. if there's an end to voter fatigue and many stay away and loyal supporters turn up to vote. that could give him a boost. we can't access the polling centers, it's guarded by police. we are expecting voters to start and continue, throughout the day. >> now, in pakistan, a case of child sex abuse turned attention to the flight of the street
6:36 am
children. nicole johnson sent this report after hearing some of their stories. >> reporter: as dusk falls an lahore, a park near the central train station fills up. men and young boys hang around. every evening is the same. then the men that offer massages arrive, with their bottles of oil. you can hear this all over the park. street children give massages too, in a city with thousands of homeless kids, it's a way to make money. it's also how some of these children are sexually abused, after being sold to sex with customers by so-called facilitators. >> translation: they are of different ages, starting from 7, 8, nine years. their looking for them. they abuse them. sometimes they are paid, sometimes they are cheated. that is what is happening here. this is what the area is famous for. this park has a bad name.

6:38 am
they -- no care and they run freely, they'll be abused like me. they'll end up in this business. >> reporter: there's some organizations trying to protect street children by reigniting with their families or taking them into care. the government-run child protection bureau looks after 1,000 children. they've been removed from the streets or rescued for homes, where they've been abused. >> no one is looking after them. the government needs to. the children - we took them from the street, and they came here. they have school. they have facilities. they have psychological facilities, medical facilities. we are trying to concern the social needs. >> reporter: this is the only province in pakistan with this type of refuge, with the scale of the problem so great, staff realise that for every child they help, many more are on

6:42 am
not this one. it has the proper wash basin, unlike the old toilet. >> school officials say the grant from the government to build a toilet means students don't leave class. >> girls had to go home to use the toilet. that's why we needed one here, so they wouldn't have to leave school during the day. girls have really benefitted from this it's a different story several kilometres away, at another school in the same district. here there are separate toilets for girls, but a lack of maintenance makes them less than ideal to use. >> many existing toilets are in this condition, or worse. with unreliable plumbing and smelling of sewerage. some organizations that for years have been building separate toilets for girls. governments pledge the right idea, hard to achieve in a year. >> sanitation experts say another year is need the to ensure no schools are left out,
6:43 am
and to guarantee the quality of construction, and say the prime minister's support made a difference. >> i never saw high officials to get it into the schools. everyone is trying hard to do it at the earliest. on the one hand it's encouraging. that it is being built and that is important. i agree that this is more time. >> studies shows female attendance increases at schools, that have a clean, separate toilet. >> the drive to finish the rest and maintain them has as much to do with education as it does with sanitation. coming up all the latest news with sanaa. including a golfer taking the scenic route around the whistling straights golf course.

6:47 am
reindeer. since the oil industry arrived in the 1970s, the way of life is increasingly constrained by pollution, construction and official bure oak rahsy. >> it is -- bureaucracy. it's entirely possible that the purpose judge will find the other way. it's one man versing a system stacked in the other favour. it's hoped the charges will be discarded before reaching the judge. russian judges have a 99% conviction rate. it's a region where state-owned yale cops have enormous influence. >> translation: financial prosperity in the region, it's natural in court cases.
6:48 am
it has a better chance of victory. >> this is a land where they can't stop the companies renting it. once they come. the pipelines, roads and illegal hunting from the oil worker make it impossible for the hunting to carry on reindeer herding traditions. russia enshrines rights and laws, but the interests of the oil-dependent rate are often in direct conflict with the people that lived here before russians arrived. sergie's case is a small example of this. >> let's get the sport. >> thank you. starting with golf. and jason day has pa 2-stroke -- has a 2-stroke lead going into the final of the pga championships. the australia is on 15-under at whistling straights. we have more.

6:50 am
even though it's been a great year, and we have won two this year, at the same time when you look back on your career, years and years from now, you may not remember what will happen within a year, but you remember how many you have won and how many got away from you. >> brandon grace had the round of the day with an 8-under par 64. the south african is a shot behind jordan spieth. justin rose is on 12-under. 2013 u.s. open champion is in contention again after finishing third at the bridgestone invitational. this person nose all about the whilst lining straights course, having won the major, and he is in good shape again. four strokes off the lead, 11-under. it's unlikely rory mcilroy will retain his title despite a round of the week. the world number one is nine
