china now where president xi jinping is hosting yet another meeting this is known as the shanghai cooperation organization summit or the s e o and russia's vladimir putin is being spoken about at length at the g seven in canada is among those in attendance as our representatives from iran pakistan and india their agenda will cover rising tensions with the u.s. over trade and donald trump's decision to pull out of the iran nuclear deal well i'm italian is a political and economic affairs commentator he says the contrast between the g seven and the s.e.'s summits is stark. it's a tale of two summits the best of times and the worst of times on one side of the world it is the worst of times if a family fractured instead of showing unity their bickering amongst themselves instead of creating a trade group they are talking about trade wars on the other side that putin received a medal of honor from. it seems like
10:02 pm
a love fest it's buring up to be something very interesting and it is a definitely a counterpoint it is also perhaps the focus of a new initiative that will link up the c.e.o. with the belton road initiative it is really the g six versus one at this point it's despite the nice things said by the italian side it is clear that the u.s. is isolating itself and that is where a lot of people are going to be looking at the differences between these two summits how they're approaching the world it's different in terms of its style and its substance and this is very informed important as the world is wondering what the shape will be a lot of businesses are not putting their investments in because they're not certain of the future this is going to be really a big counterpoint. in this al-jazeera news hour including judges explain why they've a turn to war crimes conviction for this former leader. and we look ahead to

a saudi meeting aimed at helping jordan's ailing economy. and the south african rugby team is about to make history because of the choice of their captain joe we'll have the details in sport. the taliban in afghanistan his amounts of three day cease fire after the end of ramadan but that won't include foreign forces taliban fighters warm they'll defend themselves if they're attacked during the holiday next week the ceasefire follows a similar announcement by the government well just hours before that announcement taliban fighters killed at least seventeen police officers in an early morning raid one hundred fifty five has stormed a military checkpoint in herat province eight of them were killed by afghan army soldiers and in a second attack by the taliban twenty four police officers were killed in this time
10:04 pm
in the northern province of can do gunman targeted several checkpoints. well for many of us the refugee crisis of twenty sixteen is over or is much reduced part the problem is not going away it's merely altered as europe and north african countries clamp down on the number of migrants leaving the continent an increasing number of people pouring into an asia air an area to landlocked country that is desperately poor now the un's children's agency unicef says almost nine thousand people have arrived in the chair from different parts of africa since november because they can't reach europe and two thousand of them the children the children are often exposed to violence exploitation trafficking and detention the number of refugees and migrants passing through in asia has also increased by fourteen percent and that was just for april unicef is calling for more funding and supplies
10:05 pm
from the asia to help it cope with the influx but we can speak to sara crow now who's a unicef spokeswoman on migration and sara you've just come back from nizkor tell us what you saw. well that's right martin is hardly a migration is hardly gone away it's really just out of sight and out of mind effectively and that's a huge problem for children in particular because as you say they are the most exposed and most at risk from exploitation and trafficking and not to mention the scorching heat to me when i was there it was forty eight degrees and children family nursing nursing mothers newborn baby i met as well literally in the desert in scorching heat and without shelter without protection and these air has gone from a think to being the capital of migration in africa tomorrow being the host of so many who are stranded there and it's certainly not going away it's been meskins the
10:06 pm
beginning of a brand and there needs to be better solutions in day in day because it's a stark reminder isn't it sara that the vast majority of african migrants migrate within the continent itself and not only try to get to europe. that's absolutely right most refugees as you saw earlier from from kenya and the somalia order are in fact in africa and only seventy seventy five percent of migrants on the move within the state within africa a very small percentage actually want to come to europe but of course for us the big issue is children and the children that i met were mostly alone you know anything from a seven year old girl who'd been separated in algeria sense to they are separated from her father there unicef was supporting her and reuniting with a mother as well as a young boy from syria in just fourteen years been on the move for two years trying
10:07 pm
to make his way through and then eventually to europe because he believed he could get a better education in europe so they will have these dreams and many of them are children travelling alone and they're at huge risk and given the fact that the policy of the richer countries in the world is in a state of disarray pretty much when it comes to dealing with this issue of people who are moving in an unprecedented numbers what chance then that the international community will come up with some form a solution that will help at least the youngest of these migrants who get caught in this awful vortex of suffering. absolutely i mean this domino effect is really having having a huge impact on how children are able to migrate because of course this is going on since you know forever right now we've got the global compact on migration that just took place in new york this last week and next week will be the global compact
10:08 pm
on refugees these are two really important moments when member states can come together and look at solutions what we're saying is that it's the first and foremost as a child not a refugee and a migrant and there are all kinds of protection mechanisms that are at the right and leads to that mean stronger border cooperation north south east and west we have some some networks for instance west african met well but child protection mechanisms are fairly strong but really it needs to be a lot stronger and we need the african leadership the bottom line it's but keeping children safe and of course investing in the main reason why they leave home in the first and that is that that is really key for africa sara craig of unicef talking to us live from geneva thank you. now the king of jordan is due in mecca in saudi arabia on sunday hoping for financial support from the leaders of saudi arabia
10:09 pm
kuwait in the u.a.e. a proposed income tax rise triggered some of the largest protests seen by jordanians in years the government has now shelved that tax hike but it still faces the task of trying to balance popular demand with the need to reduce the national debt as well as curb inflation but cash strapped jordan is struggling to get on top of its debt after taking a more than seven hundred million dollars loan from the international monetary fund that was into twenty sixteen and it relies heavily on foreign aid saudi arabia along with fellow gulf cooperation council members have not yet renewed their three point six billion dollar assistance program to jordan which expired last year as well as this analyst say saudi endeavor as he invests is a stopped financing projects in jordan the government also blames its financial woes on instability in the region chiefly the war in neighboring syria which has
10:10 pm
impacted trade and pushed up prices and then there's the burden of hosting six hundred fifty thousand syrian refugees jordan's complained about not getting enough international support well dulled could tough as a journalist and founder of news website ned he says part of the goal funding is he may be that country's no longer want to contribute directly to jordan's budget. well jordan has had their financial aid from many of the gulf countries including saudi arabia and qatar and other countries and most of that has dried up or has gone on on to specific programs not helping the the basic budget of the country there is different schools of thought on this issue there is one that says that the gulf countries wanted to support jordan programmatically rather than just a cash a infusion and they wanted to support programs like building schools and highways rather than just giving them money and there are some people who think that there
10:11 pm
is some kind of a political connection to the stopping of the direct support but i'm not sure what the reason is but the really the fact is that jordan is suffering because of this absence of financial aid in jordan has a lot of responsibilities towards palestine towards the mosque it trains and pay the salaries of the hundreds of guards at the luxor mosque and that is seen as representing not only jordan but they slam a quarrel than they are trying to protect the third holiest mosque in islam so they feel that arab countries certainly have a responsibility towards jordan to keep it afloat. israeli troops have killed four more palestinian protesters during the latest friday protest singles or a fifteen year old boy was among four fatalities and more than six hundred injuries israeli forces say bullets and tear gas were fired because kites carrying explosives were flown near the barrier fence at least one hundred eighteen
