9:12 pm
attacks came hours after pope francis arrived in the country a church in the capital was also attacked and pamphlets threatening the pope were left at the site. on america newman joins us live from santiago what's the reaction been to the pope's declaration was a surprise. it wasn't a surprise given that the the attention that's been placed on this ongoing crisis dealing with sexual abuses against minors in chile carried out by members of the church so he had to say something that was very clear and there was speculation that he would but we didn't think it would happen quite so soon he really when it was the first time he spoke at all and some people have applauded what he's had to say others say it's too little too late but at his first mass there were certainly many many catholics there who are happy to see this pope.
9:13 pm
actually in catholics and immigrants from many parts of latin america spent the night here for the chance to see pope francis up the pope's never you never read them again it was worth it i love this pope because he underscores the need for social justice which our political parties have forgotten it says cloudy not be sad all. this is something large a spark and organizers calculated four hundred thousand people came to the pope's first mass in chile less than half of the estimated one million who attended pope john paul the second's mass here thirty one years ago during chile's military dictatorship but those were different times back then john paul's mass was interrupted when riot police began firing massive amounts of tear gas into the crowd to disperse those who are protesting against human rights abuses and calling for the pope's support which they brought three decades on chileans are still thinking about abuses but this time those committed by the church. so pope francis
9:14 pm
wasted no time confronting the issue in his first address here at the presidential palace he asked for forgiveness for clerical sex abuses. against innocent minors. here i feel bound to express my pain and shame the irreparable damage caused to children by some ministers of the church. with my brother bishops. for forgiveness and make every effort to support the victims. many will be holding him to his word. forgiveness is necessary. no matter what. the mass the pope spoke of peace before leaving to meet women prisoners on tuesday he's in the most complex stop of his trip it's the epicenter of a restive territorial dispute by indigenous is
9:15 pm
a place where chileans are hoping that his message of peace and reconciliation will be heard. has also come in for criticism because he's not going to his own country argentina which is just next door. absolutely this is the latin american country that pope francis has gone to and the second one that actually shows a border with his with argentina his homeland at first arjun time said well you know we have to share him with the rest of the world but at this point they're getting very very upset even bishops are coming out publicly saying that they are hurt and that they are angry and don't understand why the pope has quote abandoned them his arjun his fellow arjun times why he has actually over flown his country to land here and not stop there the reason has not been publicly known but loren but it probably it's because the pope believes that he doesn't want to get involved in the current political spots taking place in argentina at the moment. thank you very

bangladesh says hundreds of thousands of ranger refugees will be repatriated to neighboring me and ma within two he is a band that should government says the deal was settled this week but there's no official word yet from in ma and no confirmation of when refugees will start going home with six hundred forty thousand range of muslims a fled a military crackdown in man man's rakhine state since august last year scott hardly has the latest from bangkok. after two days of talks in neighboring or myanmar's capital officials from bangladesh and myanmar have started to talk about the implementation of agreement they reached those two nations on the repatriation of those more than six hundred fifty thousand refugees who fled from a kind state in myanmar over in two bangladesh now they say that within two years they want all of the refugees to have returned to work and state now there are discussions over the two days of exactly how to implement that one is coming from myanmar side they are saying they have announced that they have to rape repatriation centers that they are constructing and rakhine state one is ready and
9:18 pm
will be online next tuesday they say to receive at least one hundred fifty refugees per day nothing really coming from the bangladesh side is how that's going to be implemented but myanmar officials saying they're going to be ready starting next week now the united nations has come in and said that they're concerned about the repatriation process they say it needs to be verified that those repatriations are voluntary it's a very. important for that because of obviously the horrors that these people fled they said they fled back last year that they need to make sure it's a safe environment for them to go back into so it will be a slow process at the beginning but both nations myanmar and bangladesh saying that that's going to start to go online very soon also next week there's going to be a new commission with international members on it for rakhine now this is an implementation commission that's going to have members from thailand from south africa and the united states to help the myanmar government implement recommendations from a previous commission headed by un secretary general kofi annan former u.n.
9:19 pm
secretary general kofi annan they say they're going to start to meet and work toward implementing those recommendations from the kofi annan commission it's going to be interesting to see how and if the myanmar government takes those recommendations how quickly will come out but right now next week we're seeing a lot of movement toward the repatriation but it will be very interesting to see just how quickly it actually happens i mean are saying they're ready to start receiving on tuesday some in venice is the executive director at the international campaign for the region he says the deal to repatriate the region is cruel and there is no indication that they're going to be safe from continued attacks by the burmese government and the burmese army as you know they're going back to a situation where they've been upgraded from their homes and they're also going back to a country where they have lived on the virtual apartheid conditions for for decades now disenfranchised. the citizenship stripped denied movement denied
9:20 pm
employment you know this is not a place that any sane people want to go back to libya's coast guard has saved refugees migrants from three boats in the mediterranean sea about three hundred fifty were rescued after trees responded to several distress calls large numbers of migrants are still trying to reach europe via libya despite the dangers. the french president has visited a reception center in northern france where refugees and migrants are waiting to have their asylum requests looked into emmanuel back home then went on to cali women the refugees waiting to try to cross into the u.k. is due to meet britain's prime minister to resign may later this week is expected to pressure her to allow in migrants stuck in cali thousands were evicted from what was called the jungle migrant camp near kalai before it was demolished last year a record number of asylum requests were made to france last year usually the case
9:21 pm
today we must to better manage the issue of iraq compensate miners reinforce the police operation in color and with the countries of origin and translate a block funds to support important projects for the bellamy of the colored people this will be the three points we will be racing in our dialogue with our british friends in port the eight hours. ordering me to discuss this is loony and sems to race and she's a coordinator for the migration research group at king's college london and she's also a lecturer in international relations there thanks very much for coming in to talk to us so what to go back to the people who are in cali the ones who are not in there in the in the kind of reception centers elsewhere what kind of conditions are you hearing that they're in on the ground. so does what a difference between last year when the unofficial jungle comes to existed and when that was demolished a lot of people went to section centers or those stayed in very very difficult conditions there are no shelters at the moment and when they're trying to create
9:22 pm
shelters the police will trying destroyed us again which means that people are hiding in whitson ambitious in very difficult conditions and want to be the french president when he was there accused certain organizations of lying about police brutality and encouraging people to remain in cali what's your reaction to that. from what i've seen and research of myself my last visit in september at a calendar. and the people spoken to is very clear that we've seen the the remnants of a police raid whereby a lot of ten's and blankets and order sort of life necessities were being destroyed by the french authorities and also speaking to the refugees there are accounts of for instance tear gas their food being tear gassed so that they couldn't eat it and there are similar reports from order organizations and order assertions not have spoken to so much about this new policy that. is talking about do you think that it's a kind of carrot and stick approach i suppose what difference do you think it's going
9:23 pm
to make to the situation there for those who do try and stay in cali and so of course it is good when for the now it's that people who ever do apply for asylum that their claims will be assessed and they will be given shelter now that was also promised last year and that hasn't happened in all cases so we need to see whether this actually happens but for those orders which are called illegal migrants i think that's quite problematic is part of the issue is that actually people people can move and there are no legal ways of moving forward they can't be what because they don't want to go into the reception center because they don't want to be processed in france they want to get to the u.k. is that what you mean or that's that's part of the issue for a lot of these people that don't want to stay in france has several reasons and people have various different backgrounds. some have friends and family connections or the connections in the u.k. and would have a good claim to asylum in the u.k. so that would make sense for them also of course have seen so much police brutality
9:24 pm
in france that they are very scared of the french authorities and hence don't want to claim this are in there so what do you think the outcome will be of the main back home meeting is that going to solve the problem and have a situation where people aren't sleeping as you put it in the woods and still trying to make it across illegally to the u.k. . it's kind of the pen. what will happen so it seems that what they will be arguing for is move money from from the u.k. government in a pre-negotiated treaty as well as sort of the movement of a child refuse to do you k. which in itself would of course be good i think. part of the main issue really is that there are no legal means to get in to do k. as well as that of it's a wider european issue so new policy also means that people can move regularly or legally and as long as that issue is not addressed i think we won't really move forward very much ok leoni and since the phrase thank you very much don't just thank you thank you. e.u.

under a deal between the two countries. officials from twenty countries are meeting in canada to discuss sanctions imposed on north korea over its nuclear missile program and it can to increase diplomatic and financial pressure on north korea to give up its development of long range missiles china which is seen as north korea's main ally is not attending the talks in vancouver but tensions on the pitch you know appears to be easing off to north and south korea held formal discussions this month for the first time in two years. there as well as jordan is in vancouver and joins us live so what's the goal of this meeting most. well the goal of the meeting in warren is to essentially reaffirm with the country's shared commitment to putting this in all points of pressure possible on north korea to convince it to give up its nuclear weapons program not simply
9:33 pm
containing the program where it is right now that sort of containment is not being discussed or even being entertained we heard from both kahlo the japanese foreign minister and. the south korean foreign minister who both said with varying tones of defender to that they can not abide by a north korea that has a nuclear weapons arsenal we also heard from the u.s. secretary of state rex tillerson saying that the pressure campaign is going to be employed in order to get to give up its nuclear weapons program both the development of nuclear warheads as well as the development of intercontinental ballistic missiles both of which the united states consider a national security threat to russia and china are not that how much can this event really achieve. well that's really the big question we
9:34 pm
spoke with an analyst here in vancouver on monday about that and this analyst suggested that both russia and china have actually been playing a productive role in trying to keep the focus on negotiations on diplomatic efforts and on efforts to try to reduce any outlying regional tensions that could perhaps induced to want to try to use one of the nuclear warheads by some estimates it may have as many as sixteen such devices although the question of whether they are actually operable is another whole other matter the fact is because china fought alongside north korea during the war between one nine hundred fifty and one nine hundred fifty three from washington standpoint it was never going to be able to attend this meeting and there is the similar view that russia simply because it wasn't taking part in the conflict really didn't have room for
9:35 pm
a seat at the table however both ottawa and washington promised that they're going to brief their counterparts in moscow in beijing as soon as these discussions are over but there's really no big deliverable coming out of tuesday's meeting here in vancouver it's really a chance to reaffirm what should have already been agreed upon which is in forcing the u.n. security council sanctions regime as well as trying to find ways to get an opening with north korea in order to negotiate an end to its nuclear weapons program president jordan thank you very much indeed. we'll significant influence over pyongyang which depends on it for ninety percent of its trade and is right mcbride reports from beijing china wants diplomacy to work first instead of tougher measures. tensions have increased and tensions have eased but the trains and trucks have continued to roll. but the friendship bridge in dandong some of the essential
9:36 pm
food and supplies that keeps north korea going arrives from china ninety percent of north korea's trade is with china while chinese leaders say they fully implement u.n. sanctions they seem equally determined not to allow north korea to collapse the whole time or north korea might be able to adapt well still managed to survive. so china wants to take a bribe to mary's to a computer to cut off north korea despite sanctions there's evidence that some north korean businesses such as restaurants and hotels that should have been closed have stayed open. from china's perspective now is not the time for tougher measures. with the resumption of talks between north and south korea beijing wants to encourage the signs of a thaw. toward north korea and south korea have started
9:37 pm
talking to the olympics will be held at the start of next month i'm not sure if china has the political motivation to impose further severe sanctions. the fear for china is that just as there's a hint of an improvement in relations with north korea the u.s. and its allies are preparing to ratchet up the pressure and that will only harden pyongyang to position. the north korean leadership say nuclear missiles capable of hitting the u.s. on needed for survival against hostile powers. more threats from the u.s. and its allies might give leader kim jong un the justification to speed up the weapons program not slow it down rob mcbride al jazeera beijing. u.s. police have charged a couple with torture after their thirteen starving children were rescued from the family home in california some being chained to their beds and social services official says they've been held for a prolonged period of time until one of the children managed to escape internet
9:38 pm
police there in haunt has more. a family photo appearing to show david and louise typin surrounded by their thirteen children those children ranging in age from two to twenty nine and now being treated in hospital police say they found them locked up in their home stabbing and in filthy conditions medical staff treating them spoke of the shock at what they in counted in the time we live and it's unfortunate to see that it's actually heartbreaking for the staff and. you just it's unbelievable what you see. police were called to this family home in paris east of los angeles on sunday they say a girl had managed to escape and call them from a mobile phone she found in the house the go told police she was seventeen they say she was so amazed to paid to them to be just ten years old police risk you twelve
9:39 pm
brothers and sisters some of them l. nourished and chained to the beads they arrested their parents fifty seven year old david tippin and forty nine year old luis tip and some who saw the police operation chose not to show their faces on camera one said she saw the mother being arrested she was just like been acting a little weird and. does a kid the police officer was talking to her and she just kept like smirk you know him in like kind of like this she's been twice down on the floor they were all in pj's because it was early in the morning. they were very very pale skinned like almost like they've never seen the sign police gave no indication as to why the parents had kicked the children captive neighbors say the tippins and the children really emerged it all came out. and they'd all have to mow the lawns together and
9:40 pm
then they'd all go and i always had a suspicion because that has never looked like there was a lot of action in front of it a facebook page that appears to have been created by the parents shows the couple getting married in posts from two thousand and sixteen and surrounded by their children all in matching traces and suits the parents have been charged with torture and child endangerment and to being held on bio at nine million dollars each medium honed al-jazeera has to worry about this now with dr vincent pollution who's a professor of pediatrics at new york university school of medicine who specializes in child abuse cases thanks very much indeed for being with us this is a horrifying case isn't it and one of the things that struck me was the fact that perhaps some of the children were actually adults but they looked like children because they've been so malnourished it how unusual is something like this this is a terrible case and you're absolutely right this is fortunately very unusual the
9:41 pm
degree of malnutrition that's been reported in the press so for really speaks to a longstanding withholding of food and water and and other important elements i just can't imagine what the medical providers are going through seeing people this malnourished this skinny and this emotionally damaged as well and what kind of treatment can can you have for people who've had perhaps in a number of years or perhaps the whole life in in some sort of captivity. well fortunately it does sound as if the neighbors have seen the children periodic lee so i'm hoping it's not their whole life but clearly this has been chronic this is not a situation where we have a temporary loss of personal control or lashing out this sounds like torture which appears to be what the family is charged with clearly these children have a significant a mental as well as physical things to be treated for every thing from beginning of post-traumatic stress to long term emotional psychological harm we're going to see
9:42 pm
behavior problems we could certainly see educational problems cognitive problems and and just think about the relationship that these children have with their parents whether or not they can trust them again how could they love them again. the brains of ages is so extreme one has to wonder about the adult children as well and so we have not just adults and children but we have a whole host of harms these children suffered their physically small i'm sure that they must have stockholm syndrome and how they've been treated and they have some significant mental health needs that once we deal with their physical needs will have to be attended to no we had a few reports coming through from the california sheriff's captain and one of them was that the mother of the thirteen children. captives was quite perplexed about why the authorities arrived at the home did this give you any kind of clues as to what kind of mental state she was in and how this abuse might have happened.
9:43 pm
