4:11 am
explosions so presumably the people who still live around the volcano. are in danger of further eruptions of the. us lauren it is indeed very dangerous now there are there have been two explosions large ones on friday and we haven't heard any more advice from them but the experts were telling me that plea in fact the book a new activity is definitely going down but it doesn't just wordly calming down in one thousand twenty four it took about two weeks for this volcano behind me to stabilize again but it will take some time because we say close on. a week ago where for years they were terrible and they it will take a long time for the volcano is to be back in

4:14 am
refugees are perceived around the world most europeans or americans are astray and think that all the refugees are coming their way frankly most of them are in countries like kenya eighty five percent and yet they're invisible and we were hoping with this event today can't we could really illuminate the camp but not only that the extraordinary refugees and the talents and the ideas they have by putting them on as powerful a stage as the ted stage many of the speakers here today are refugees among them actors singers musicians poets there was one young woman in particular the twenty two year old refugee from south sudan her name is mary marquis here she spoke with me and told me that she came back to this camp after she had left over so that she could teach children here and why that was so important to her. i look at the population in the. especially that population of the most of them a whole class. and seeing me as their teacher who is almost their peer will
4:15 am
actually encourage them to move on to push on to see that life is not about the company life is something more ahead and that's what i want them to believe it and every time i'm in my class teaching them biology our business. i'm not just teaching business i'm teaching business the set of statistics that will help them everybody i've spoken with here today has told me they believe an event like this is extremely important not just because it counteracts negative stereotypes about refugees but also because it will inspire so many refugees around the world. and muslim practice during the month of ramadan is under threat in jerusalem the practice involves men banging drums on the street in the night reminding muslims to eat before the fast but now jewish settlers have complained
4:16 am
they make too much noise and police are threatening to find those who take part of the smith reports from occupied east jerusalem. oh no. it's a wake up alarm that dates back centuries. just before dawn during ramadan across the middle east men known as most a hierarchy call people to pray and eat before the fasting begins. but here in the muslim quarter of jerusalem's old city for the first time police have been detaining and finding the most a hierarchy for disturbing the sleep of the jewish settlers living here. to learn a lot of money from so hopefully the police are always harassing us i've been detained four times accused of making noises that disturbs the settlers the settlers get annoyed by everything we do even the decorations we make for ramadan annoys them. the old city is split into the muslim jewish christian and armenian
4:17 am
porters but for the past fifty years jewish settlers have also been moving into the muslim quarter now appear is where while settler families live and the guys stop the music as they go past the house but that's not been enough to stop the settlers complaining to the police. over that of. the settlers complained again tonight there are jewish homes here this woman says this is going to go on all month. jerusalem police told al-jazeera in a statement that they are constantly trying to maintain the delicate balance between allowing and ensuring the freedom of religion and worship and maintaining public order and quality of life for local residents the police see offenses of noise and disturbing the peace is one of the most serious offenses that cause harm to the public and the quality of life for our local residents the police presence is provided for the settlers who choose to live in the heart of the muslim quarter . with followings running into the hundreds of dollars how much wish to

singapore for tuesday's highly anticipated meeting with kim jong il and it'll be the first time a serving u.s. president and a north korean leader have ever come face to face the president said he felt positive about the negotiations. it's a one time shot and i think it's going to work at very well that's why i feel positive because it makes so much sense. we will watch over and we'll protect and we'll do a lot of things i can say that south korea japan china many countries want to see it happen and they'll help the world so there's a great this really is a great time this is not happened in all of the years that they've been separated by a very artificial bantry there's a great opportunity for peace and lasting peace and prosperity the taliban in afghanistan has announced

4:21 am
next it's the listening post you stay with us if you can. is it ever ethical for a journalist to fake his own death. even. if . it's i mean change it and i think that it was done something that at. a lower measured just but in your at the listening post here are some of the stories we're tracking this week the bizarre spectacle of the reporter who faked his own death and what the story says about journalism in russia ukraine
4:22 am
and beyond selective memories the persian language television channels that being their way into iran from the us you buy and london uganda imposes a special tax on social media is the government in it for the money or the control board. and the argentinean president provides cold comfort for his people and then feels the heat on social media. in more than eleven years of doing the listening post we've never covered a story quite like this one last week news spread of the murder of a russian dissident journalist our cuddy bob cenk oh shut and killed outside his apartment in kiev ukraine except as we all now know it never happened the killing had been staged his resurrection broadcast live at a press conference the following day that chancellor said he faked his own death as part of an operation led by the ukrainian security services to thwart a plot by moscow to kill him he said it was about survival for others though it was
4:23 am
a mere stunt that undermined ukraine's credibility and could have serious consequences for other journalists down the road this story is also part of an ongoing media battle a larger geo political conflict between the western backed government in ukraine and moscow which says that the initial breathless coverage of the bad story is yet another example of how much of the international news media are intent on smearing the kremlin our starting point this week is kiev. shot back. or pointing between the ukrainian and the russians has already started this whole thing started off as a serious drama you know yet another journalist yet another kremlin critic allegedly killed in kiev and ukraine and then finally ended up being great you know stock up on popcorn and enjoy the show moment and it's a strange ukrainian television that is just. kind of had been shot.
4:24 am
with a kind of these my friends i was overwhelmed with joy my sister had come from israel for a funeral and instead thank god she just made it for his resurrection it was the city . that clearly was not just simply in the press conference that was an act of theater it was a political stunt we are relieved that our. it is a lie but the faked death has the potential off tempering public outrage when journalists are killed and hurt in the line of duty. it was the story arc the twisted and turned after the morning on day one and the release on day two. came the ethical questions most of
4:25 am
which centered around our kind of dr chan close cooperation with the ukrainian security service the s.b.u. the s.b.u. stood alongside the journalist at the news conference saying it started working with dr chang go after it discovered a plot by russian intelligence agents to kill him and dozens of other russian dissidents in ukraine chunk oh agreed to sort of petition to cooperate with the s.b.u. he said because there was no other way to save his own life and it's that relationship a reporter working with a spy agency that organizations like the committee to protect journalists based in new york take issue. takes quite a dim view of law enforcement and impersonating journalists now. basically acting as a police asset one clear down which is again to public trust for
4:26 am
a limited journalist his explanation and was that he didn't have a choice but as well for the yemeni security. but. we're not in. ourselves but there is very little evidence there are plenty of authorities here for that is convincing that this imminent threat on. life existed. but is it such a big tragedy for the work that our cut above chain could spend twenty hours in hiding and survived what has that changed in the world yes russian failed to kill a journalist when we made it look like that succeeded and if somebody got frustrated because intelligence services safety and he didn't die i feel sorry for them. it was quite quite depressing to see the outburst from not just bob but also a certain number of his supporters who very much mean to be frank it turns out well did you want to die well of course not and i don't think anyone is arguing that the
4:27 am
point is this is not a live or die binary what's become the story is not the threat to journalists it has become the whole fake threat to journalists. are cut it was a former russian soldier whose time in the army he fought in both chechen wars led him to journalism and the coverage of military conflict his writings eventually grew critical of moscow's interventions in syria and ukraine he left russia last year because of the death threats he said eventually settling in the ukrainian capital moscow and kiev have been at diplomatic longer head since two thousand and fourteen after a coup led by forces favoring closer ties to the european union and nato toppled the ukrainian president viktor yanukovych overage who was pro russian and who had been democratically elected the subsequent war far in eastern ukraine a region with strong ties to moscow resulted in its an accession by russia
4:28 am
effectively carving ukraine into since the fighting ended in eastern ukraine the bulk of the propaganda war between kiev and moscow has been waged through the media it is against that geo political backdrop that the back story has unfold this whole thing and michelle it can contain all the perfect ingredients for. a great anti russian story and the crimean authorities and the crimean media have been very successful sellers over a number of years which. is that you. focus on news of the it seems that his immediate. forces in the west have then very happy customers of that the historical practices of the russians who typically almost genetically driven to co-opt penetrate to gain favor whatever yet another chance presented itself
4:29 am
they just couldn't miss the opportunity it was too sexy. to start with russian journalism doesn't exist at all it's propaganda media outlets even the ones that were once independent are all under the complete control of the government i worked there and left for that very reason so i know what i'm talking about there's no freedom of speech they may call it journalism but it isn't. me. however the ukrainian media have issues of their own in the reporters without borders press freedom index for two thousand and eighteen ukraine is ranked one hundred first of the one hundred eighty nine countries listed well ahead of russia at one hundred forty eight but still in the bottom half of the table the paris based n.g.o.s says media reforms after the two thousand and fourteen coup have helped but much more is needed to loosen the oligarchs tight grip on the media to encourage editorial independence just last month a ukrainian working for
4:30 am
a russian news organization was jailed charged with high treason another accused of being pro russia in his reporting recently fled the country. and has applied for asylum in austria journalists this kind of collateral damage. because some of them are what's happening. in the east of ukraine with some criticism as to ukraine handling the cough like propaganda it should not be fought with propaganda or with censorship. in both the chunk of case in ukraine and the recent screwball case in the u.k. in which a former russian spy and his daughter were poisoned fingers were quickly pointed at moscow the problem in both cases has been evidence of the lack of it and the tendency of news organizations in ukraine the u.k. and elsewhere to accept the word of local authorities and publish according that's
4:31 am
not journalism it's the knockers and it plays right into the hands of the kremlin and the media apparatus it happens at its spokes it's no longer necessary to source your story on anyone you just quote anonymous sources that you never name their names and i think that the western media have honed the art to perfection and this is something that a real journalist and real journalism allowed to happen on one level listen is a conventional conflict before we jump in the sun. on the other hand it's also an information conflict and the russians have sort of blown out this great cloud of conspiracy theories and outright nonsense really just always give the sense of what we'll never know what's going on that's been one of the russian strengths is actually a capacity but great distance where truth is unknowable the information is every bit as important as the one on the ground. whoa
4:32 am
we're looking at other media stories that are on our radar this week with one of our producers will yong well this past week the british government cleared the way for rupert murdoch's twenty first century fox to acquire the rest of the european satellite broadcaster sky the shares it does not already own however there are certain conditions attached so what are the details why the condition is it is a little complicated richard but in summary hang called britain's secretary of state for culture last tuesday gave the green light for murdoch to bid for all of sky t.v. but only if he sells the sky is twenty four hour news channel in britain sky news now one that said that it would be likely the most effective remedy for public interest concerns and those concerns are about the murdoch family trust and the influence it already has over british public opinion and politics through its other media holdings namely newspapers the sun the times and the sunday times so murdoch
4:33 am
will be happy with that decision but where does that leave disney and comcast both of which have been eyeing the company as well yes comcast has also been cleared by the u.k. government for sky there were no competition or public interest concerns found with them and comcast is currently out bidding fox for sky shares meanwhile disney is negotiating with murdoch for all of fox's entertainment holdings not includes the thirty nine percent of sky which fox already owns now this will likely mean a bidding war between com cost and disney who both see sky as a door into the european market you've also been following a story about social media use in uganda and government policy pertaining to it yes the government in uganda has passed a law which imposes a tax on social media uses so for next month anyone who wants to use platforms like facebook whatsapp or twitter on their mobile phones will have to pay the government two hundred shillings per day and that works out about five. us cents but bear in
4:34 am
mind that for those on low incomes who use social media every day the tax could amount to two three percent or more of their income in a country where mobile data is already pretty expensive but what's this really about is it about the money or is there more to it than that it does depend who you are asked the government says it's about raising revenues but critics say it's more about limiting access to information you might recall that president yoweri museveni has left us his finance minister back in march said that the tax would help the country cope with gossip and remember during the last general election in two thousand and sixteen the government blocks access to facebook twitter and what's up which was the president said was to stop the spread of lies now me seventy has been in charge now for thirty two years and rights groups say controlling the media space is one of the ways he's keeping hold of power ok thanks will. t.v. in the islamic republic of iran is a rather controlled affair all the broadcasters there are state owned and operated and much of the programming can be
4:35 am
a bit dull not exactly must see viewing and there is a ban on satellite receivers tuned into broadcasts from overseas despite that however foreign channels many of them run by members of iran's widespread asper are widely watched within the country channels like the u.k. based manito t.v. the dubai based gem t.v. and the los angeles based tempest t.v. all broadcast news and entertainment that would not make it past the censors inside iraq some of the satellite channels have pioneered program and you could call nostalgia t.v. documentaries and entertainment programs that hearken back to the more than three decades when iran was ruled by the pahlavi monarchy and authoritarian family dynasty put in place by britain in one nine hundred twenty five which was toppled in one thousand nine hundred seventy nine during iran's islamic revolution these nostalgic television shows skate right past the repression and the human rights abuses of the shah's reign they focus exclusively on the social freedoms of those
4:36 am
times the listening posts and actually ravi now on the iranian diaspora media and the rose tinted of iran's pre revolutionary history. every friday night my new t.v. a persian language satellite channel based in london invites viewers to turn back the clock. into nelly's armaan or time time no delivers a feast of archival footage showcasing life even on under its last shot mohammad reza pahlavi. what the u.s. see is a vision of a liberal and stylish it on led by a benevolent king it's enough to make you wonder why the one nine hundred seventy nine revolution and the overthrow of the shah ever had. and you see women out and about on the beach on university campuses in the workplace participating in and
4:37 am
spore images of the shah and his wife his third wife usually the empress. always looking very beautiful looking very glamorous the idea is look at how how beautiful and happy and fashionable everybody was in the past unlike how we are now. i found it quite extraordinary when i visited iran a few years ago to find out that almost every person in iran was familiar with monitor what guarantee the channel success was the access to run an archive footage from the period before the revolution. that's marceau boffin macoutes lawyer as well because any of our unsolicited such a last name the best you already that is about one of us managed to started it. broadcasts for audiences inside iran to provide them with and to tame and and news that they would otherwise not receive certainly all the channels inside iran are
4:38 am
censored certain topics are taboo. matter to provided those topics such as monica which has been the biggest. winner to launched in two thousand and ten it entered an already crowded market iranian media outlets broadcasting in exile. the first we will get on an immigration took place in the lead up to the one nine hundred seventy nine revolution. mass protests against the shah his oppressive government and his brutal secret police the sock would bring him down. the popular uprising eventually coalesced behind the country's new leader ayatollah khomeini and in one nine hundred seventy nine the islamic republic was born. many iranian immigrants ended up in los angeles which became a hub for persian media production in the eighty's after that wherever iranians were migrating to new media outlets were taking root the x. out t.v.
4:39 am
of the eighty's was very raw it was very immediate so they were appealing to nostalgia literally yesterday or you know just last year a few years ago and they were also appealing to the sense of loss and unrooted ness that folks were feeling as as new exiles their programming was mostly music and films and then some politics when satellite technology emerged and there was a possibility to broadcast into iran you saw that shift and more of an emphasis on political content and calls for action and calls for. revolution the channels that come out of los angeles the diaspora channels are of overtly political clearly very anti islamic republic in terms of their output many of them a monarchist certainly very nationalist and they're so political in actual fact so obvious where the direction is that i think their impact is probably less than believe it or because you're not sorry get after. me and get a thank you in mass in. those channels that have
4:40 am
a less clear political agenda and really have a more of an entertainment agenda i think they have great attraction in iran. after l.a. came dubai jim t.v. and farsi once set up shop there i did turkish and mexican soap operas dubbed often poorly into persian to the mix then came out of london manage all stock in trade is entertainment least with nostalgia politics isn't absent from its programming it's less ham fisted glossy or. they have this program called google music academy which was like a music talent show and it was named for googoosh the pre-revolutionary singer and diva and she's that she's like the lead judge on the show a lot of the songs that the singing as part of the competition are songs from the pre-revolutionary era but. what's happening is a really interesting dynamic it's
4:41 am
a very subtle appeal to sit to that time passed and it brings in a new audience for a younger audience that can now have their own memories with far from the pre-revolutionary era they produced a very influential documentary on the founder of the band of dentistry reza shah it's a largely sanitized reading of the rain it has to be said but as a hyundai entirety. it's that or you. don't then i mean you get when you have a show that is very rosy it's very positive there obviously producing an agenda but it's done in a quite subtle way it's not so overt as to put people off immediately. the point band. then they get hollywood they get about oh yes b. . by the whole you guys oh yeah sure taliban him he said i can order back. the younger generation have the impression that before the revolution there was no poverty in iran and certainly monitor would not discuss the survived torture or the
4:42 am
censorship of cinema or newspapers and the parliament just of the iranian government for elective lead to this footage to create a very negative image of that time monitor cherrypick glorious and beautiful archives that do not provide a true picture of historical reality to view it believes in a mannitol past which. according to some who run the asperger media outlets like mezzanine and sorry the managing editor of the k. hunt london website pro-monarchy output is fulfilling a real audience demand for us in london every single time that we put anything to do with monica with reza shah with in on one with reza pahlavi the clicks go up high there is a demand it's not as if we are providing them with a sanitized version people are wanted because they look at back at history and they
4:43 am
see in those days they were proud a proud nation monotones funding is a mystery the channel won't speak about its large budget be unanswered questions have spawned numerous theories that the b.b.c. the cia the family the saudi government or even the islamic republic itself are all possible sources of the funding. we did quested an interview with mano toll to discuss the channels finances and programming they don't back saying they have a strict policy of not speaking with other media outlets this is one thing that journalists do one word does manage to get its funding for us london a lot of iranians provide us with funds but they don't want their names to be no mandatory as well and certainly if you come and ask me who are my funders i will not tell you it's a very tough market and why should matter to tell people who which iranians are funding it. in december last year there were demonstrations across it on the
4:44 am
crippled economy high unemployment and rising food prices amidst the raised voices was a small contingent of protesters calling the names of the bad levies that of the founder of the dynasty reza shah i mean even that of the us based crown prince levy his grandson bad money because. i believe that monitor had an active role in these protests when we had the chance in favor of the pilot of the family the programs of course the new generation who have an experience of life in the iran of the seventy's to now owning the north that once belonged to their parents and to view that time at the last paradise. this nostalgia has been generated by the islamic republic itself rather than the basically creating a new generation that detest the pre-revolution period they've actually produced
4:45 am
a new generation much more interested in what that period was about now part of this to be honest is because even the worst aspects of the shah when it came to political repression for instance has been multiplied several times over by the islamic republic what people are producing is popular history for the masses it's not necessarily good history i have to tell you but it's population it's going out and people are lapping up. finally argentina's president. has been facing down public opinion and vetoing argentina's congress just to make sure that nothing stands in the way of cuts in state subsidies he says they are necessary for the country's long term economic health however water and energy bills have soared by more than one thousand three hundred percent so machree has provided citizens with some handy energy saving advice from the highest office in the land like take short of showers use your gas stove a little bit less to the hash tag machree tips and behold the resulting voice of
