airports in the region and several airlines are suspending flights to kurdish cities stratford has more now from. celebrations on the streets of appeal up to ninety two percent of voters said yes to secession from the kurdish region of northern iraq. the referendum is very important it will form our future and i hope at least that baghdad will support us eventually to be independent. with the federal government in baghdad has called the referendum on constitutional and he's refusing to even recognize the result let alone start negotiations with the kurdish regional government ok allergy over future independence for iraq's. events of the last few days here can only be described as some of the most momentous in this region's history but the political ramifications are massive the threats continue from the baghdad governments and neighboring countries and there's

leader chuck schumer has issued a statement calling on the u.s. government to recognize what he called monday's historic vote and to back the creation of an independent kurdish state well earlier i spoke to be an expert on iraqi kurdish politics at the washington institute he says the international opposition to the vote is understandable considering the history of the region. let's not forget that this is a unilateral and non-binding kurdish move and was mainly targeted at baghdad to strengthen the kurdish hand in negotiations and exciting exciting more concessions from baghdad and more autonomy for kurdistan but the international backlash is understandable the middle eastern borders as. unnatural as they are have turned to be resilient the united states turkey iran and indeed the international community spoke in unison against the referendum albeit for a variety of different reasons the us opposition mainly emerged from a referendum
a distract from the war against isis and defeating isis is the main priority of u.s. engagement in the in the region and be weakening prime minister a baddie who the united states sees as an ally in trying to. drive iraqi toward more independence from iran even if not more toward the united states so this referendum would obviously we can about the and strengthen his allies but also it would create an arab tension in iraq a violent eruption of violence in iraq and that would obviously be detrimental to the much needed cooperation between the kurdish peshmerga and the iraqi security forces in defeating isis and case in point was liberation of mosul. the head of the un's migration agency says he's shocked about the increasing reports of soldiers in myanmar raping range of women and girls the government
denies the claims but has refused to allow international observers to investigate four hundred eighty thousand range i have fled to bangladesh and the past months from crucial palau in bangladesh joanna hall has more. two sisters twenty five year old me and twenty two year old aziza share their story of escape from me and my both say they were raped by soldiers. the military tortured us they murdered our parents even our sisters they took us to the jungle they pushed us down on the ground there were two of them they raped me and then i became unconscious. some people came and rescued us and took us to a group of people who were going to cross the river to bangladesh but they wouldn't take us in the boat as we had no money we told them either you kill us or take us with you. it's estimated that more than a third of nearly half
a million rick injure refugees who arrived in bangladesh in the past month are women and young girls i met survivors myself who've told me their harrowing stories about how one sister was gang raped and killed in front of her how one was raped and then a baby was killed in front of her they have experienced its extreme amount of pain being fled some have walked for days not even if you say trauma it's an understatement they are severely traumatized. it is of course impossible to verify the stories we've been told but those of n.g.o.s are hearing this sort of testimony every day now as this vast population of refugees slowly gains access to health and counseling services but despite the best efforts of aid agencies the task of reaching all those in need is nowhere near complete the sisters have had no direct
help. we are young girls where can we go we don't have anything left they killed everyone only my sister and i are alive. whether or not sexual violence is being used as a weapon against the fleeing is something that may be proven in time when dissident and sang suchi was fighting for democracy in myanmar she's on record as saying that rape was used systematically by the army against minorities now as the country's leader she's had nothing to say about the latest allegations nor has her government granted access to international agencies to investigate jonah how al-jazeera bangladesh. tens of thousands of people have been out protesting in south africa against president jacob zuma and the corruption that they say has become endemic under his leadership the marchers were organized by the country's largest workers'

frequent power cuts because the upgrades have stopped. kenan is the victim of corruption that cost south africa about two billion dollars a year but it's far from certain that it will cost the president his job no matter how loud the call is from one of the mcs oldest partners for him to go tony a page out a zero johanna's bird. come on the program the u.s. military rushes aid to the hurricane hit island of puerto rico as president trump is criticized for his handling of the disaster and a trip down money launderer blain the london bus tour that takes in properties bought by corrupt high profile nigerian.

and there by boat to. there we met leaders of the reserves indigenous tribes who agreed to take us there. this is the reserve along a jolly river that borders per contacted in non-contact the tribes have lived here for centuries. on our seven hour journey up the river we learned that the reserve is being increasingly invaded by outsiders cattle farmers loggers hunters fisherman and miners. the latest reported massacre on this reserve is said to have taken place when members of a non-contact and tribe men women and children were looking for turtle eggs by the river the alleged killers are said to have boasted that they cut up their bodies and threw them in the river making it difficult if not impossible for prosecutors to find the evidence oh we go to meet the chief of the my unit tribe which was contacted about fifty years ago around fifty five hundred people belong to the
