10:00 pm
jobs. council restaurants are asked if we could hire some of the given our labor shortage at first they didn't even occur to me they were refugees or that there was a civil war raging in yemen it was outside my scope of interest refugees we spoke to said that brother be at home in yemen in stockholm what they regard as an expensive holiday resort island because if you have peace in yemen so that we go back to yemen you have to leave a new country where you grew up. where you have. it is expected it will take up to eight months to process the refugee applications craig lease and al-jazeera j j u r l and south korea all fighting in yemen has forswore than two million people from their homes there amongst the estimated twenty two million people three quarters of the population the u.n. says are in need of humanitarian assistance all of those who fled the country fifty one thousand went to neighboring amman and other forty thousand are in somalia
10:01 pm
that's a country which already has one point five million internally displaced people followed by saudi arabia which is leading the coalition war effort in yemen along with the beauty ethiopia and sudan a much smaller number have traveled to asian countries like malaysia where they can stay these are free for three months and most yemenis trying to get to europe via libya making them vulnerable to mistreatment and drowning at an albuquerque we saw in craig's report that joins us now on skype from jeju island in south korea thanks very much for speaking to us first of all why did you choose to seek asylum in south korea. basically he. was the only country a bailable for us to go to without a visa and claim asylum because we can go to a few countries in the world without these but they don't accept refugees or they
10:02 pm
didn't sign the. united nations convention or remittance to accept refugees and stuff. we have but it's i mean we can't go to south korea. and it's all the country in the world we can go to without a visa. claim asylum because obviously if we go to another country and stay there. if our visa expires and we will be stuck in jail or debilitation censored because in order to be deported back to you because you visa expired or something you have to go through a neighboring country because it is and it was it is not there is a place we can go to. we can go back you know because of the war anyway but it might let's say you want to go back in jail because you need to get a visa to go to a neighboring country. don't mean i can just jump in that someone if you've been granted asylum already or from the process of seeking it and how concerned you are
10:03 pm
about that because south korea does not have a very good track record for allowing people seeking asylum to stay in the country . well basically they did say maybe they're ok they said they'll try the speed of the process you mean they don't usually use and if they do it's really a small percentage maybe three percent some so and in our case they said. they consider it to give us a human to remove said. status so they missed basically keep this in and so the war is finished or at least until they think. it's a safe country to go back to so. i mean they are considering to give us a human to visit but i mean we have to wait at least six months but they did say try and speed the process. probably give us an answer within three months but
10:04 pm
obviously if we don't get except me and it when you do. basically get accepted if not then you have to go through the courts and you have to peel this decision and then you have to go to courts and this would say. have you miss a lot being slightly surprised by the reception that you've had thought i mean we saw in craig's report that you have been helped by this south korean man who admits that he had no real idea what the situation was like in yemen but down in seoul the thing people on the streets and signing petitions are very unhappy that. people from yemen like you. i mean a lot of this is because of the wrong information that the public has that by media . because obviously south korea has a different culture different it's a. it's far away from yemen today a lot of
10:05 pm
a lot of locals don't know anything about yemenis or muslims or and so i mean they've been they've been told a lot of wrong information about us or they've been told bad stories that happen somewhere in the world because of yemeni the muslims or whatever but i mean it's i mean i mean we've all been that people will get to see the real yemeni or like basically yeah i mean you can't really generalise it when you cast there it's i have one race or one religion and you've got bad and good people every country and every race in the world so hopefully and then it doesn't matter if you had a bad story about yemenis or something because it doesn't really matter i mean i got bad and every friend of mine and i just want to take you back to yemen just briefly if you could just tell us what exactly you were feeling and your situation and how you managed to get out of yemen and flew to malaysia. i mean in my case there wasn't an airport that i can go to i'm going to when i had to leave yemen so
10:06 pm
i had to get a bus all the way from on the chemicals on the way to amman and i had to i had to sit in a bus for twenty four hours and obviously i had to go through a lot of check points and you know by different groups of different governments and stuff it was really. sweet that we we had to stop in every couple of kilometers and stuff and. you know but i mean we were i wince always on mon and then from the plane tickets and it was only just trying to get up for an hour and then i went to malaysia and up go malaysia i say to malaysia for. you and it's ago that i'm in the main. i had to take that chance because there isn't another country that i can go to and claim saddam so when i get a by g.o.i. and they had i had to give it
10:07 pm
a shot because it's either. dry land or nothing because that is no way there is nothing i can do there's not there's not a country i can go to and claim asylum and to get up easy to get a visa to go to a country club solid ok so at for me we wish you all the best and that many thanks for taking the time to speak to us that from south korea to go on and. no problem i mean i wish we had no more time so i can explain more facts and more stuff. ok thanks very much. now the german government has secured a deal with fourteen countries that will allow the rapid deportation of migrants who fail to qualify for asylum in a letter to partners in ruling coalition the german chancellor angela merkel also says asylum seekers who arrive in germany after first registering and other e.u. countries will be sent to what she describes as anchor senators a leader struck at eleventh hour deal in brussels on friday agreed to stand by
10:08 pm
groups rescued at sea to centers across the block a mccain has more from. the details of the fourteen countries who given pledges to angela merkel to the political level that they will take back some migrants and refugees are as interesting for those who are not part of it as for those who are because the italians and the austrians are not party to this deal they are not prepared as things stand to be part of this pledge system and that means that and so far as its early is concerned that's one of the frontline states in the migration crisis where many of those across the mediterranean first landfall let's remember angle americal already announced that she had arrived as a form of understanding with the greek government and with the spanish government such that anybody who presents themselves across the german border with a stamp in the in their documents from spain or greece will be sent back ultimate question here is is this enough to placate merkel's political allies from bavaria the c s you will find out on sunday when the two parties the c.s.u. and the c.d.u.
10:09 pm
merkel's party meet separately to discuss the fallout from the e.u. summit protests are due to be held across the united states against president donald trump immigration policy in the coming hours hundreds of people were arrested in washington on friday during a protest against the president's policy of separating migrant families the government says it's trying to reunite children with their parents but more demonstrations against donald trump's immigration policies are expected across the country minute appollo reports from washington. yeah dozens of signs and posters are being prepared for something big a protest bringing together more than one hundred different groups all opposed to u.s. president donald trump's zero tolerance policy on migrants it's a national day of action that's not only here in washington d.c. but also across the country the message is simple and our demands are simple we want to see families reunited once again and we want an end to family separation
10:10 pm
and family detention policies images of children locked away crying out for their parents after being forcibly separated from them have shocked many the u.s. government admits more than twenty three hundred children have been taken from their parents since may a federal court has ordered them to be reunited. a majority of them are fleeing violence in countries like honduras and el salvador or extreme poverty in the case of guatemala the outcry from those opposing the treatment of child migrants has led to calls for protests across the united states. in washington on thursday nearly six hundred people were arrested during a demonstration inside the united states senate among those led away by police from capitol hill with hollywood actor and activist susan sarandon and we want. you to take on the. president from continues to call for strengthening of the us mexico border to the construction of a wall something immigration experts say does nothing to address the root cause of
10:11 pm
migration extreme violence and poverty in central america the practice of separating migrant families has halted but the organizers behind the protests against president from zero tolerance policy insist that more demonstrations like the ones planned for saturday will continue until these families are reunited and. washington. u.s. president donald trump is taking credit for convincing saudi arabia to increase its production of oil this comes after a group of oil producing states including saudi arabia already agreed to increase output by a million barrels a day at a meeting of opec this month has just spoke to king solomon of saudi arabia and explained to him that because of the time oil and dysfunction in iran and venezuela i'm saying that saudi arabia increase oil production maybe up to two million barrels to make that make up the difference price is too high he has agreed. well
10:12 pm
saudi arabia has issued a statement through its official press agency saying u.s. president stressed all efforts must be made to maintain stability of the global oil markets and the wild economy's growth both need to emphasize that and devils made by producing countries to meet any possible shortage of supply must be. but the saudi statement didn't mention any new agreement to increase production and for more on this as she joins us live from washington d.c. so rosen why would this increase possible. foreign it's not unusual for any u.s. president to try to put pressure on members of opec particularly on saudi arabia to moderate or increase its oil output mainly because the u.s. president is first and foremost concerned about the cost of gasoline up consumer. specially in an election year we have congressional elections coming up in about five months time and certainly it would help congressional republicans if they
10:13 pm
could say that the price of gasoline and the price of heating oil for the winter has gone down however what donald trump is saying is something that is much more complicated than simply persuading or not persuading saudi arabia to watch change its output levels this is a situation where you westsail the oil production itself has fallen off in the past few months and that drop in the inventory has pushed a wild prices up also because the u.s. is trying to convince all other countries to stop accepting any are drawn to get oil imports by november fourth or face the possibility of sanctions there's other part of the pressure on the oil prices now there's also some analysis from energy sector experts who say that saudi arabia could perhaps increase its daily output but it would only be for a very short time. and the quality of the oil produced would be very long very
10:14 pm
difficult and debuts in consumer markets around the world so there's a lot of hope at this stage but i think it's noteworthy that the saudis to say that they're committed to any of this. that they would be inclined to not have any dealings whatsoever with the rod in the things. ok rather many thanks for the update there from washington d.c. . ok the weather now here's richard with some rather unusual storms in west africa. how boobs are storms that we often describe their current in many parts of the world but we don't often see them in senegal nuts what we've had in looking on these pictures laura you see this great mass of dust approaching. and a quote from whether a colleague who sent this in the wonderful name popped up and gore. you said this
10:15 pm
kind of sandstorm is usually most frequent over the sun. sarah does and then the region of. mauritania and the volunteer but not really in senegal it's a first and you can see the strength of the winds which came with this storm as well and those winds resulted in damage at the airports there was loss of livestock already quite nasty conditions so we look at the general situation room parts of west africa up here you've got senegal seventy six millimeters of rain coming down in parts of ghana but it is that area towards west where you had the most extreme weather i think much of the next twenty four to forty eight hours is further south into the lights of guinea guinea-bissau sierra leone we could see some really heavy showers developing them more storm to go to dot com i think the weather should be somewhat quieter but packing up again and moving slightly further north as we head through into sunday we were all across more eastern parts of africa we've had some
