7:01 pm
and zero e.u. leaders are meeting in brussels for a summit dominated by discussions on how to deal with illegal migration the problem is turned out to be so divisive it's even overshadowing brix it and the german chancellor angela merkel has gone as far as saying that it could split the union apart the number of undocumented migrants reaching european shores has actually dropped since its peak in twenty fifteen and the issue is no longer viewed as a crisis the e.u. says it stemmed the flow of migrants by ninety six percent but bitter rattles or broken out of the last few months because some member states are simply refusing to let in rescue boats new right wing governments are demanding tighter border controls austria-hungary italy slovakia the czech republic and poland all want to stricter approach so leaders are trying to work out
7:02 pm
a solution in the form of so-called disembarkation platforms essentially areas outside europe probably in north africa where migrants will be held. actually has taken a particularly hard line stance on rescue ships will be live with more on the situation there which out charlie rangel in a moment but first an arch lee who's at the e.u. summit in brussels what are the chances of getting anything agreed in the next few hours. well it's pretty slim i would say and they've certainly already reduced their aspirations the idea of getting a common approach across the block has now been jettisoned entirely and so they're talking about about bilateral agreements and so people are going to merkel the german chancellor is having small meetings on the side with people like alexis tsipras the greek prime minister and people like that it will become clear actually until friday lunchtime what they've come up with which is which is when they issue
7:03 pm
their final communique but they're talking tonight and will carry on again tomorrow but in terms the split is between what i'm going to merkel to try to hold on to some sort of humanitarian policy is calling the coalition of the willing which should be countries prepared to go through the legal obligation to look after refugees and that might be countries like greece and spain and france luxembourg and germany then this is another coalition of the willing or coalition of the unwilling that you might call it led by austria which is you said takes in the new very right wing government in italy and all the countries from the vishu grad group as well led by hungary who was saying the europe's under threat and it needs to stop and all these sorts of things so he sees it is a very difficult and dangerous moment for the european union because the whole idea of ever closer union countries marching in step with each other has obviously got out of the window and that's why merkel is talking about it being effectively a start of next essential crisis for the block and given that the numbers of
7:04 pm
refugees have actually gone down why has this become as you put it was put it in an existential crisis for me you. well it isn't you know people call it a refugee crisis i mean clearly lebanon's got a refugee crisis and so has jordan many african countries where there are literally millions of people pakistan as well this isn't the refugee crisis in europe it's a crisis of the rule of law across the resettlements even austria which says there are eighty thousand people spread around the balkans trying to get to ward austria and germany and that number patently is much lower than in other parts of the world it's just that countries like australia which has now a very right wing government and others as well regard this as being what they will call the civilizational threat to christian values in europe and they regard the borders as being leaky and they're having no control over what's going on i think by the end of it what we might find is things like more dealings with libya to try
7:05 pm
to keep people out strengthen in the borders this this sort of thing that's about the extent of what they can do at the moment but it's what you in terms is the problem is these ideological very right wing argument that you see expressed by these countries in much the same way as donald trump of the united states saying we're not going to abide by rules the united nations and people like that think is very important we want to do our own thing and have solvent governments deciding what their own policies should be included that flies directly in the face of the entire european idea of joint rules and an agreement across the board personally thank you we can trust said now to charlie angelo who's at a refugee camp at kennedy now in sicily how different is the atmosphere charlie for refugees now the italian government has altered its stance so significantly on immigration. well italy is certainly one of those seven countries that is making up
7:06 pm
its own rules with this new policy that they won't be allowing any new arrivals of migrants to the airport this new hardline stance is being adopted by the far right interior minister. he's been actually called the trump of europe with his anti migrant rhetoric when we. hear how they felt about this new hostile environment this is what they told us. a bus from could turn your unloading into cardamon near one of europe's largest refugee camps here there is fresh refugees applying for asylum they've heard that italy's new interior minister is hostile to migrants and they're right just. so what. you just so even if. you drove it into the street ernest came from ghana when he was fifteen he lost his mother in libya and made his way to italy alone now
7:07 pm
a husband and father the camp has been his home for four years lawyers say these people are the lucky ones italy's new policy of turning boats away will make new arrivals the most impossible. we're going back to. when there was no distinction between genuine refugees and economic migrants the government is now talking about preventing people from even requesting asylum or denying access based on their country of origin and this is a violation of international law italy has shut its ports to charity boats carrying rescued migrants they believe if these boats disappear migrants won't be tempted to cross the mediterranean but charity boats account for forty percent of the search and rescue operations here in testing this idea thousands could die. italy's new hardline policy is driven by mike taylor sylvania rock star of the italian right seen here in libya pushing for asylum identification centers to be set up in north
7:08 pm
africa not europe his slogan to stop the invasion. local councillor and supporter of. took me to parts of catan yeah he says over run by migrants. if you need. me is now the biggest refugee camp in europe many times we have taken the issue to europe but it's taken so vignette to put a stop to it our coasts are being invaded and the impact of illegal immigration is particularly evident in neighborhoods like this one back at the camp a message from one refugee that this anti migrant rhetoric is dangerous. migrants together some of us fled persecution others have come just to earn money and then return to africa we don't have a choice we came here because we were being persecuted we came to europe because the rule of law is respected in africa it isn't it with these new policies accusations that it is also forgetting the rule of law and its moral obligations to
7:09 pm
those in need. italy's prime minister has taken his proposals to brussels he's saying he will veto any e.u. agreement that doesn't include a commitment to reform the dublin regulation that is the rule by which whichever country a migrant arrives and becomes responsible for them and he says it is time to share that burden but they're not going to leave it up to the e.u. as well as that policy of not allowing any migrant rescue rescued migrants into their ports they're also going to be furnishing the libyan coast guard with twelve brand new ships and giving them ample training to use them they want them to take up the bulk of those search and rescue missions to intercept any. before they enter waters and take them back to libya but humanitarian so that libya is not a safe port that reports of mistreatment of migrants is widespread and you saw in my report there told me how he was beaten almost blowing while in
7:10 pm
a holding center in libya now if you were to listen to interior minister sounds a little bit like viktor orban who to. of an invasion but this isn't quite accurate . arrivals on a top down by eighty five percent but you speak to most italians they're not aware of this they seem to think the levels are still the same as two thousand and fifteen and this misconception is really playing into the hands of the government so it's unlikely that many of their proposals will be adopted at the e.u. summit so we could be seeing more of these unilateral actions tony thank you very much indeed. rescuers in northern thailand are trying to find an alternative entrance to a flooded cave where twelve boys and soccer coach have been missing for five days as more time passes without any news their families are becoming increasingly desperate school hard to reports from chiang rai.
7:11 pm
yelling into the hills for their missing boys forefathers in the jungle above long cave pleading for their son to come home but the only reply they got was the whirring of a black hawk helicopter after a night of heavy rain the skies cleared in the afternoon allowing helicopters to resume searching from the air. frustrated with the lack of information and progress after five days the fathers went out on their own checking in with the searchers and looking for answers. i want to watch the governor how my boys and all the other kids where are they do they have food and water that's all i want to know the only thing i can do is just wait and wait i mean when. a group of rescue volunteers from bangkok will use a high tech laser scanner in an attempt to locate the boys they plan to lower down a recently located chimney that they hope leads deep in the cave. because that means scan they can see through laser ten meters and can show
7:12 pm
a graphic of the cave if we dropped it in the cave we can see the shape of a human more than a thousand people are now involved in the search including american troops and british diving experts. but was so many bodies and organizations at the scene there are also serious logistical challenges we're deep in the hills that how's this vast cave network while some groups are using high tech to assist in the search and rescue operation somewhat like these from the park service are doing it the old fashioned way they're hiking through these woods to link up with some rescue officials deeper in the hills while the searching continues in the water in the air in the vast jungle families are focused on staying strong because at this stage that's one of few things they have control over scott how to al-jazeera chiang rai . the u.k. tolerated what's been described as inexcusable treatment of detainees by the us following the nine eleven attacks in two thousand and one according to
7:13 pm
a new parliamentary committee report members of parliament said it was beyond doubt that british intelligence agencies knew at an early stage that the u.s. was mistreating detainees and that more could have been done they said to try to influence u.s. behavior the committee found that in two hundred thirty two cases u.k. personnel continued to supply intelligence to allies after they knew or suspected mistreatment and in ninety eight cases they received intelligence obtained from detainees who they knew or should have suspected had been mistreated paul brennan has more. these two reports by the intelligence committee of the house of parliament paints a highly critical picture of the behavior of british intelligence services both in the period from two thousand and wants twenty ten and even afterwards what they found was small support times where british intelligence services had for example supplied questions to interrogators despite the fact that they knew that the detainees being interrogated were subject to or likely to be subject of
7:14 pm
mistreatment and at other times the british were prepared to even offer to fund rendition by third party countries what the author of the report said was it is difficult to comprehend how those at the top of office did not recognise a pattern of mistreatment by the united states and the view that the u.k. tolerated actions and took other actions that we regard as inexcusable and the picture after twenty ten does not look much better what the members of parliament on the committee found was that there still remains a lack of clarity about exactly how the government decides how to get involved in rendition and in intelligence they said that there is no clear policy not even an agreement as to who is responsible for preventing u.k. complicity in illegal acts now the opposition parties have said that in order to clear up those kind of. lack of clarity there needs to be a judge led independent inquiry with the power to compel witnesses to come and give
7:15 pm
evidence there were certain intelligence agents who refused to take part in the reports that the intelligence committee put together but the fact is that the british government at the moment is taking a lot of flak for the behavior of its intelligence agents. pushing here live from london still to come on the program a time and place is announced for the first official meeting between donald trump and vladimir putin. and britain's prince william wraps up his middle east tour visiting some. it's in occupied east jerusalem. how the floods are receding and grand dog for example because the heaviest rain has not been moved to the north in fact that is the active zone at the moment to run
