2:00 am
when east investigates in the region hold the secrets to a long and healthy life. on al jazeera. this is al-jazeera. hello i'm adrian finnegan this is the news live from doha coming up in the next sixty minutes human rights council is a poor defender of human rights the united states pulls out of the u.n. human rights council saying the organization is not worth its name. as anger grows over the trumpet ministrations immigration policy to separate children from their parents the president meets politicians on capitol hill ahead
2:01 am
of a crucial vote on the issue. fierce fighting at the airports of the yemeni city of her data as government forces take on who thief isis. and why the world health organization is comparing videogaming to crack cocaine. a cesspool of political bias that's how the u.s. described the u.n. human rights council and justified withdrawing from the un body its ambassador to the un nikki haley made the announcement with secretary of state mike pompei o haley accused the council of chronic bias against israel and called it a hypocritical and self-serving organization the us joined the u.n.h.c.r. in two thousand and nine under the obama administration the united states is officially withdrawing from the un human rights council. in doing so i want to make
2:02 am
it crystal clear that this step is not a retreat from human rights commitments on the contrary we take this step because our commitment does not allow us to remain a part of a hypocritical and self-serving organization that makes a mockery of human rights we did not make this decision lightly the human rights council is a poor defender of human rights. worse than that the human rights council has become an exercise in shameless hypocrisy with many of the world's worst human rights abuses going ignored and some of the world's most serious offenders sitting on the council itself. the only thing worse than a council that does almost nothing to protect human rights is a council that covers for human rights abuses abuses and is therefore an obstacle to progress and an impediment to change roslyn jordan reports now from washington. the trumpet ministration is arguing that it had to leave the human rights council
2:03 am
because nearly a year and a half of lobbying has not worked in its view the council is still allowing countries with very poor human rights records to sit in judgment of other countries and their treatment of their citizens the u.s. is also still very concerned that even though the number of resolutions condemning israeli treatment of palestinians has gone down that it's still being unfairly targeted and the u.s. has valve that it's going to try to protect israel from what it considers an anti israeli bias across the u.n. system what's not clear is whether the u.s. decision is going to have a financial impact the trumpet ministration has long talked about trying to cut the number of dues that it pays to the overall u.n. system because it says that u.s. values are not being respected it's also not clear how long the u.s. is going to avoid membership on the council itself it may have to change once a new president comes to office well the un human rights chief responded on twitter
2:04 am
shortly after the announcement was a drug the same said the decision was disappointing it's not really surprising given the state of human rights in today's world he said the u.s. should be stepping up and not stepping back will the united nations human rights council was founded in two thousand and six to investigate human rights violations in member states it's made up of forty seven member countries they're elected by the un general assembly for a three year term and conserve only two terms in a row a specific number of seats is allocated for each region of the globe the u.s. could revert to observe a status like some other countries if it does it would be able to speak on rights abuses but not to vote let's get a view on this now from if the ca who is a human rights lawyer fellow at georgetown university joins us now via skype from busking ridge new jersey good to have you with us so a cesspool of political bias not worthy of its name ambassador haley said what's
2:05 am
your take on this issue right. well i think that minister. well i think it's absolutely critical. if you're right that they are. right every day because the. order. or to date again this. is going to make. it right. by us law and i'm so i'm sorry i'm going to have to interrupt you that we've got problems with the sound we can't really hear what you're saying we'll try and come back to you will sort out the sound problems and come back to you in a few minutes in the meantime let's move on u.s. president donald trump is has been meeting with republicans on capitol hill to can try to convince them to pass legislation to overhaul the immigration system trump
2:06 am
is considering two bills one proposes a crackdown on asylum seekers on funding for a border wall a second ball moderate bill provides a path to citizenship for young people known as dreamers who came to the u.s. illegally as children images like these of migrant children separated from their families have sparked anger against trump's immigration agenda but he's defending the practice despite mounting criticism when you prosecute the parents for coming in illegally which should happen you have to take the children away. now we don't have to prosecute them but then when not prosecuting them for coming in illegally that's not. we want to end the border crisis by finally giving us the legal authorities and the resources to detain and remove illegal immigrant families altogether and bring them back to their country trumps
2:07 am
family separation policy has sparked protests and drawn condemnation from across the political spectrum republicans worried about the damage that it could do ahead of midterm elections in the event but want to pass legislation to work and the practice let's go live now to capitol hill i was here as alan fisher is with us live allan i understand that donald trump just left capitol hill what happened. well he was on the hill for an hour he was speaking to republicans we thought there'd be much more of a turn for all but according to people are coming out of the meeting this was donald trump essentially speaking for most of the time he didn't take questions he talked about immigration a little bit he also talked about tax cuts and more he done with the tax code and they also of course mentioned the russian vest a geisha and said how it was a witch hunt no afterwards there were congressmen who say that he's going to approve any bill that comes out of the house and the senate that goes back to the position he held at the beginning of last week but flipped on friday because he
2:08 am
said anything that came out of the house and senate he wanted to see it would have his input and then would send it back that would slow everything down what does this mean for the position down on the border wall while republicans think they may have enough votes to pass what is considered a moderate immigration bill which would give money for donald trump's border wall even though he said mexico would pay for it it would change legal immigration as well and would also according to some put a stop to the separation of families in the borders here's the difficulty with that not all democrats are ready to sign up particularly here in the senate they see that this is a crisis that donald trump has created because of donald trump's justice department policies and he could change it by picking up the phone. and and so they're not really keen to work on some sort of legislative fix if there were something that also dealt with the dreamers on immigration in a much wider immigration question then there is the possibility that democrats could get behind that but at the moment they're not very keen on helping donald
2:09 am
trump out of what they see is a crisis that he himself has created even though he continues to blame others for it and with this growing chorus of condemnation over this crisis and with one eye on the on the mid terms is there a sense of. urgency panic among among the republicans have to get some sort of deal done. while there's a not quite a panic but they're certainly they want to get a deal done quickly this week because they see the problem on the border and there is not playing well for the republicans and they want people to have forgotten this by the time the midterms come around in november if this is still going on through the summer it becomes a much bigger problem for donald trump particularly if he doesn't change course and we know that donald trump isn't terribly good at saying you know something got that wrong let's just change that we saw that when he was in singapore when asked what happens if the meeting with kim jong un goes wrong he said well i'll say it was
2:10 am
a mistake or wait a minute i want to see that i think of something else so he is in this quandary that republicans and democrats are no what king feverish sleep feel feverish plea to try and come up with some sort of immigration bill that first of all gets a lot of support in both the house and the senate which is difficult and then the additional problem is of course that it comes out of here untouched a relatively untouched and goes to the president's desk and gets his signatures well so they could sort this so by the end of the week but this is twenty eighteen in washington don't hold your breath here in many thanks indeed alan fischer live in washington well as allan was saying trump has repeatedly and falsely blamed democrats for his family said. aeration policy he says it can only be fixed with a law change but there is no law requiring families to be split up as reports. as the crisis on the u.s. border with mexico asking late donald trump is defiant lamie his political
2:11 am
opponents for a problem he says can only be fixed through legislation as a result of democrat supported loopholes in our federal laws most illegal immigrant families and minors from central america who arrive on a lawfully at the border cannot be detained together or removed together only released these are crippling loopholes that cause family separation which we don't want speaking at a meeting of independent business owners trump also blamed mexico for encouraging illegal crossings into the united states they come up through mexico mexico does nothing for us you hear it here they do nothing for us they could stop it democrats say the president has the power to stop separating children from parents being prosecuted for entering the u.s. illegally cuse him of putting children into internment camps there's nothing moral
2:12 am
or even acceptable of hearing children crying and screaming for their daddies and their mommies. in the land that calls itself the land of the free and the home of the brain trump is meeting with republican lawmakers lobbying for broad immigration changes to end separations and provide billions to erect his promised border wall the bills are unlikely to pass instead senators are considering narrower legislation to keep families together well parents' immigration status is determined congress can step in and pass this this week i'm an urgent congress we can fix this problem we can fix this and i've been speaking with both republicans and democrats we can come together we are all be united and say of course kids should be with their parents the images of weeping children and desperate parents potentially moving a u.s. congress to take action after years of failing to compromise to reform u.s.
2:13 am
immigration law and now pushing back against the administration refusing to back down can really help get al-jazeera washington or let's get back to our top story this how the u.s. has to sit to withdraw from the u.n. human rights council i think we've sorted the the problems with our guest a salon if the cause of human rights lawyer and fellow georgetown university he's on skype from busking ridge new jersey asked on a few minutes ago i was asking you whether ambassador hailey was right when she said that the u.n. human rights council is a cesspool of political bias not worthy of its name. well adrian i think that the trumpet ministration is the cesspool of political bias to leave the un human rights council since they clearly violate human rights each and every day with the egregious immigration border policy separating children from their families of the trump muslim travel ban which the supreme court will decide on shortly because this is just an isolationist move that is really just moving the united states away from
2:14 am
its democratic allies but hang on a minute two weeks ago said that being a member of the council is a privilege new country has a human rights violator should be allowed a seat at the table venezuela cuba china egypt saudi arabia and she has a point doesn't she. well if you know what you focus is really fixates on israel but as humanoids human rights watch director can or cannot trust recently said the u.s. human rights council has played an important role in dealing with issues in countries like north korea syria me and mar of south sudan but again the us used to be fixated on israel doesn't israel is a big country they can stand up for themselves the council's current membership includes fourteen countries that are ranked not free by freedom house i mean they've had enough warning why hasn't the un heeded. the warnings from the u.s. and from from britain which is the u.s. view of the council and change the rules over who is allowed to sit on it.
2:15 am
well you know it and i think it has less to do with membership and more to do with teeth you know i think that the u.n. human rights council doesn't really have any teeth when it comes to enforcing resolutions or or recommending resolutions to the u.n. security council so you know their internal infrastructure issues you know are something that really have a lot to do with in terms of how effective u.n. human rights council can be good still see many thanks to you for being with us. it with the news out from of zero still to come on the program immigration sparks debate in europe as well with germany's chancellor given an ultimatum on the issue . of violence in nicaragua as the latest round of talks between the government and protest leaders failed. added support woke up hosts russia are on the brink of reaching the knockout stage with victory against egypt.
2:16 am
france and germany have called for a joint european approach to migration the german chancellor is under intense pressure over the issue of how a coalition partner the c.s.u. has given her two weeks to reach an e.u. why deal or it will withdraw its support stomach came reports from berlin. of all the other e.u. leaders emanuel mcconnell is the one i'm going to america will have heard shares her views on how to deal with the continent's migration crisis the issue has dominated the debate this past week in berlin on choose day the french president made clear his determination to act. that meant that the minister it is with this same determination that we believe very strongly in the european response to the migration challenge we have not just discovered this challenge we did not discover it last week but we have very clearly determined together to act and the european and coordinated why such friendly sentiments from the french president are
2:17 am
exactly what angle america would have been wanting to hear from this meeting because in the past few days she's had to concede on immigration policy to her to mystic c.s.u. allies promising a european solution the price for not seeing her coalition toppled in this document which purports to be a draft of what e.u. leaders will deliberate over in brussels next week much of the policies the c.s.u. have been speaking about are discussed so what are the prospects for an e.u. wide solution this is the school is the team over the topic which currently concerns us or is the topic of migration we understand to as a common challenge we first have to make sure that the cause for migration is eliminated that's we support the plans of the commission and the austrian presidency to strengthen the protection of outer borders which means nothing else but a significant increase in personnel from tax but despite her apparent confidence some
2:18 am
analysts are less convinced a wide agreement is possible and i don't see twenty eight solution coming so i will definitely be a bilateral or multilateral coalition from those or within those countries actually in the e.u. which are most affected. it will be a coalition of the willing in berlin this. weak parts of machall coalition has appeared to be willing to put her in an impossible position the question now is how willing other e.u. member states to help her answers dominic came out zero in the german capital. the international organization for migration says the number of people either crossing the mediterranean to europe or dying on the way has dropped sharply over the last few months forty thousand people have made the journey so far this year compared to double that number the same period last year but there is a big increase in those trying to reach spain al-jazeera skull pan hole reports now
2:19 am
from the southeastern coast of spain. we're here in the control room of spain's marine rescue center in the port of ameria and personnel here in front of screens in a radar are on high alert for the possible arrival of more refugees and migrants aboard these rickety fishing vessels they call pâté others now if you look out that way that's one hundred miles or one hundred sixty kilometers to the coast of morocco and that is from where in the last four days fifteen hundred refugees and migrants have headed towards both our maria and points further south personnel here say that they have seen nothing like it that level of arrivals in such a short period of time is really putting them under pressure already figures this year at twice as high as at the same period last year what generally happens in this control room is that they will get their first alert perhaps by telephone perhaps by radio from an ngo from another vessel or directly from the potato
2:20 am
itself and they will call and say they are in distress from here they make a call to helicopter a helicopter will be up into the air searching the area trying to locate the migrant vessel and then from there the characteristic orange search and rescue vessels will head out trying to locate and pick up those migrants and refugees and bring them back here to shore over the weekend personnel here say that there was a ship wreck they managed to pluck four survivors from the sea but they say that somewhere out there there is still at least forty bodies of migrants and refugees that simply didn't make it. in yemen saudi embassy coalition forces have taken control of parts of her datas airport as they continue to fight hooty rebels in the area and the yemeni army has taken control of the road between her data province and the capital that would cost who think militia supply lines and stop any

2:30 am
with a preemptive strike on the part of the analogy. we here to jews can be to cover the israeli palestinian affairs we cover this story with a lot of internet normal to recover include that we don't dip in and out of this story we have a presence here all the time apart from being a cameraman it's also very important to be a journalist to know the story very well before going into the fields covering the united nations and global diplomacy for al-jazeera english is pretty incredible this is where talks happen and what happens here matters.
2:31 am
and again it's good to have you with us adrian for going to here in doha with the news out from al-jazeera the top stories this hour the u.s. is withdrawing from the united nations human rights council accusing it of chronic bias against israel washington this long threatening to quit if the right spot he was told before. u.s. president donald trump has been easing republicans on capitol hill to discuss passing legislation to of the whole the immigration system trump says that something needs to be done to illegal immigration and he plans to sign either of them public and bills that the house passes. saudi and iraqi coalition forces and taken control upon. as of who data's airports in yemen as they continue to fight the rebels the u.n. and aid agencies are worried that the battle would spread to the city and cause a humanitarian disaster. there's been more violence in nicaragua after the latest round of talks between the government and protesters failed. at least two people died in the southern city of. after police and paramilitary
2:32 am
confronted demonstrators earlier protest leaders abandon talks mediated by the catholic church the opposition is accusing the government of not keeping its promises to invite international monitors to investigate the violence which began in april nearly one hundred eighty people have died since then anger of a pension reforms started the unrest manuel ra polo as the latest from the capital managua. a national dialogue hosted by the nicaraguan catholic church began one sedan last friday under the condition that president ortega meet a set of conditions one of which was for him to invite a delegation from the united nations from the european union and from the inner american commission on human rights to come to get i want to observe the ongoing humanitarian crisis another one of those conditions was for an end to hostilities for the government to end its violent attacks against the civilian population
2:33 am
against anti-government demonstrators and at the workshop that is part of this national dialogue that's taking place. people there sort of gave us a sense that that the national dialogue is on shaky ground because these conditions as they say have not been met and this comes up on the heels of a national strike that took place last week that nearly brought the entire country to a commercial standstill and this was certainly a message from both the civilian population and the private sector to the government that what people want are for national elections to be sped up now as far as the demonstrations that are ongoing it's now of the second month of this political crisis the violence continues in fact over the weekend we saw one of the deadliest attacks take place on a building killing burning alive a family of six including two young children neighbors and survivors say that this was yet another attack by pro-government forces but the government here continues to deny any involvement they can keep a person or thing i maintain that the dissent against his government is part of
2:34 am
a of a right wing conspiracy and in the absence of an independent in the investigation in the absence of national of this national dialogue that remains on shaky ground there really seems to be no end in sight to the violence human rights groups say that both in one thousand villages in northeastern mozambique have been left homeless by a surge in attacks by groups that people say that they're not only terrified of the gangs behind the attacks but also of the obvious response. nadeem barber reports. beginning the process of rebuilding their homes and their lives these people lost everything when attackers set fire to their village in mozambique's northeastern province of kabul their god it was part of a series of attacks that began last october just since last month around forty people are thought to have been killed in the area which is predominantly muslim and more than a thousand people have fled their villages the mayor of this district seen here
2:35 am
meeting soldiers deployed after the latest violence says there's been a strong response thing. as you see here the people of many cutlass wood to help the people of nigh on day to build their homes we've also brought in other supplies like buckets and clothes i think. the government said that we'll have to clean up the wreckage of our homes then we will get help to get wood and bamby to rebuild them local residents call the people behind the attacks but they're not thought to have any links with the somali fighters about name researches say there are a local group who want to establish islamic law or sharia after initially attacking police stations they've gone after a wide range of targets as well as destroying villages and livestock they've burned down mosques and killed local religious leaders there was a situation where they asked for the local community and when the men. they were looking for tried to run away the group chased him down. and
2:36 am
cut off their in front of everybody to see human rights watch is accused mozambique security forces of a heavy handed response hundreds of people suspected of being linked to the attacks have been detained without charge there also rumors of summary executions. campaigners say until this congress of fear and villages won't feel safe enough to return home. al-jazeera. a course in kenya has refused to allow local doctors to block an attempt by the government to employ medics from cuba the doctors say the cuban recruits will be paid more than them but the government defended its plans saying that state hospitals are in desperate need of staff catherine sawyer reports from nairobi. he's a cain years new government doctor is cuban medical specialists will be deployed to some of the country's most and is stuffed and ill equipped public hospitals local
2:37 am
doctors are angry one took action saying the process was flawed and adding there are almost two hundred specialists in kenya who are unemployed and even those in work and not being paid as much as the cubans but each of these kind as we are speaking they have their name is country they question the argues it is about numbers that is why we even agree that hundred doctors cannot help the whole process that is true but what we are seeing in the process of hiring these doctors at higher skill or salary it is because if two doctors. the decision to hire foreign doctors stems from the government's frustration over frequent doctors strikes including one last year that lasted one hundred days and crossed major disruption to services in public hospitals. george muti saw struggles to get the specialized care he needs he often has to travel from his rural home to this hospital on the outskirts of the capital he told us it has taken him four days
2:38 am
to see a specialist the situation is worse in with he says hometown some rural hospitals have not had a specialist in years the doctor patient ration the country is one to seven and a half thousand that's seven times more than the double heechul recommendation of one to a thousand. a member. you know. before you know. the court has dismissed the case by the da to block the hiring of the specialists from the doctors' fees that he's going to appeal some kenyans are happy with the new arrivals they say that patients who can only afford public health care need all the help they can get but they also know that this doctors need medical supplies and probably meant to be able to do their jobs well

dealing with the situation we don't question their result but in reality the state government was unable to fulfill its obligations in terms of improving the situation in kashmir valley and ministers faced a lot of difficulties from the p.d.p. the b j p p.d.p. coalition was often seen as an unlikely alliance in india's only muslim majority state p j p's perceived hardline stance against kashmiri rebels is opposed by the p.d.p. which advocates a more conciliatory approach to address underlying grievances from what i am a fair man that we've always said that in jammu and kashmir a muscular policy will not work we can treat and kashmir as enemy territory. direct rule is not a welcome prospect for many kashmiris if it is imposed by delhi that would give the b j p a free hand to crack down before the general election which must be called within a year people are suffering here that's why people are not concerned they are least
