with a crisis hundreds of thousands of her henschel muslims have fled to her country to escape but the un is calling ethnic cleansing. is following developments from cox's bazar near the bangladesh me and more border myanmar's top military man many young on his personal facebook posting on sunday with this committee do united. together on the issues in his facebook posting here. inside jones as bengali extremists trying to set a hole in the right kind state of me on my province now obviously this is a personal posting but it appears to be a propaganda and a strategy to clearly the man my book this community to show that the growing community in iraq that are kind province rather are nothing more than bangladeshi settlers are tough for them as bengali extremists some of the insurgency that took place in the beginning of last month at least twelve security personnel killed he
also said that at least ninety three and contras with me on my security force took place within that time now we know that the myanmar government has referred to the community as being the only settler previously also it's nothing new about something that is under the current crisis appears to be a strategy rather than a personal posting what will happen is down the road is so many ranges coming over to bangladesh as refugees will be stuck because the border areas are now mind and their friends the border area these people do not have documents to go back to. prove that their own kind providence this will end up being a situation in the long run could very well be a potential ground for the insurgency campaign against john. by their own community the u.s. ambassador to the un nikki haley has warned north korea will be destroyed if it
continues what she calls its reckless behavior and forces the united states and its allies to defend themselves against an attack and u.s. secretary of state rex tillerson says a military response may be needed to contain north korea after another missile was fired over japan on friday. if our diplomatic efforts fail though our military option we will be the only one left so all of this is backed up by a very strong and resolute military option but be clear we shake a peaceful solution to this military chiefs of staff from twenty nine countries are meeting in seoul north korea's not officially on the agenda but the south is hoping to use the event to discuss how to calm regional tension kathy novak joins us live now from seoul and of course kathy this was a preplanned thing that it be hard to imagine north korea would not be discussed any word on on how that part how that's going. well indeed it's not
the official agenda but it has already come up even in the opening speeches of this conference and bringing together such senior people from the armies around the age of pacific is a great opportunity for them to come together and talk about north korea interestingly china has sent a three star general which is significant because china has been angry south korea and indeed the u.s. about the sad anti missile defense system that has been installed here in south korea so significant that china has sent a representative the keynote speech was by the former u.n. secretary general ban ki moon who like we heard there from rex tillerson and indeed nikki haley he was also actually talking about military options when it comes to north korea saying that nobody wants war but when the chips are down it is necessary to consider all necessary measures we've also heard here in south korea from the defense ministry it's been briefing the national assembly on its assessment of north korea's nuclear and missile capability saying that it believes
that north korea is in the final stages or at least nearing the final stages of securing i.c.b.m. capabilities and it believes that north korea will continue provocations in the form of more missile launches and nuclear tests as it seeks to improve and secure its nuclear capabilities we've heard before that south korea believes that there will be more missile launches and more nuclear tests to come in the defense ministry seems to back that up once again today we also heard from the president of south korea through a video address at that conference and he says that south korea will work with the international community to secure powerful punishment against north korea for its provocations richelle kathy tell us more about the more games between u.s. and south korea human you mentioned that earlier and also russia and china. yes these are parallel drills that seem to be happening now the u.s.
and south korea have staged a show of force as they call it over the korean peninsula flying u.s. bombers and fighter jets over korea along with south korean jets and this is really just a show of the military might this happens often after we see provocations from north korea the message from the u.s. and from south korea that they have the capability to defend themselves against any attack from north korea separate to that china and russia are also staging naval drills on the border with north korea these are the second stage of drills that started back in july and the chinese news agency that reported that the drills did not make a direct link with the latest missile launch from north korea or the latest nuclear test but as i say this is from all sides show of force to show that they have their military capability should they need to use them especially when we hear the united states talking about its military options but china has a big part to play in all of this of course and it has called on the u.s.
to stop making threats against north korea and of course as we discussed often here china and russia have a proposal for a freeze for freeze as they call it that would see the u.s. and south korea stopping its annual large scale military drills in exchange for north korea freezing its nuclear program now that has been a nonstarter so far and as we see here the u.s. and south korea are still keen to show their military might and show that they will work together if necessary when it comes to protecting themselves against any north korean threat kathy novak live for us in seoul kathy thank you. yes president donald trump will make his debut at the annual u.n. general assembly on tuesday from iran to north korea trample have plenty to talk about i watch internet or james face reports. every year when world leaders gather in new york in september they listen carefully to the words of the most powerful
person on earth but for the first time since the un was created at the end of the second world war the u.s. president will address them from this podium is someone who at times has appeared to question the multilateral order the united nations represents diplomats so wary of what president trump will say in his nine months in office he's already attended nato g. seven and g. twenty summits on the global stage he's appeared at times uncertain his actions unpredictable donald trump does not perform well a big international summits when he attended a nato summit he actually managed to physically push another leader out of the way and his advisors must hope that he will be back here because this is his last chance to really convince other world leaders that he is someone they can do business with and not just nativist who wants the u.n.
over to china as usual global leaders face a whole host of challenges among them an ongoing humanitarian emergency with the exodus of the rohingya in myanmar then there's the wars in syria in iraq yemen and libya as well as the future of the iran nuclear deal but this year at the top of the agenda another nuclear state north korea. it is a particularly pressing issue because of the provocative timing of the latest missile test which took place just days ago the number of launches the number of tests is much greater even in this year than it's been over the last decades so this is a very immediate very immediate question and yes i think it will be the top question here in this week at the u.n. this is not just the first general assembly week for the new u.s. president and tony terrorists became u.n. secretary general at the start of the year he plans a program of modernization and streamlining president trump is also planning to
hold a meeting on u.n. reform but some diplomats fear that may simply be an attempt to further slash the organizations budget. zira at the united nations. the wife of pakistan's former prime minister nawaz sharif has captured his parliamentary seat in the wash raif won the election in lahore the seat became vacant when the supreme court removed her husband from office over corruption allegations that was seen as a test of support for sharif in is p. and l. and party ahead of next year's general election so let's go to hyder who is live and lahore so what does this mean for the sharifs. well indeed you did a retreat for there should be however there are references against him and announce an accountability accord even again him. marty i'm no watch it's going to be in

are no relief government officials tell us to move back to our houses but we don't have a house said one man was over the other in our houses are destroyed but the powerful get all the relief we are left with very little. schools are closed and children have fallen ill many are mollari villages complained that the local leaders failed to visit them during the floods everyone here says they are going to exercise their democratic rights and vote but they also say they do not trust the local politicians because they were abandoned by them during their hour of need so as not to be seen as influencing voters the government stopped all relief for the past few leaves the only visitors to these villagers are polluters sions asking for their votes beneath the pond it showed us her home destroyed by floods got out i've taken a loan of five thousand dollars to build a house but nothing is left politicians say they would do this once we vote for
