weeks of living like this. the trade war between the u.s. and turkey is escalating turkey has now filed a complaint with the world trade organization of a u.s. tarps on steel and aluminum imports donald trump ordered a doubling of tariffs earlier this month after turkey refused to release an american pastor who's been detained for nearly two years by the turkish government retaliated with tires on some u.s. imports if. there's no difference between the tricked attacks on our call to prayer in our flag and the attack on our economy the goal is the same the goal is to bring to heel turkey and the turkish nation to hold a captive we are nation that prefers to be shot in the name rather than to be chained at the name. meanwhile two people have been detained after bullets were fired towards the u.s. embassy in the turkish capital ankara six shots were fired from
a moving car early on monday morning it in the gate and a security post nobody was injured in the attack some again as the latest from istanbul. this incident has taken place at a time when there is unprecedented tension between ankara and washington d.c. not forgetting of course the ongoing dispute that there is over the arrest of the american pastor andrew bronson who remains under house arrest. nearly two years after he was initially arrested maintains that he has had links to terrorist organizations and is also accused of spying but the american government and donald trump have taken on his case very vocally and are using it to strong arm and so using coercive economic measures such as sanctions and also tariffs raise tariffs but it is the holiday season in turkey and this is not the
first time that such an incident has occurred at the u.s. embassy in ankara and also the consulate in istanbul what is important to note that this dispute is going to remain after the holiday period is over and there has been pressure on both sides to resolve this dispute diplomatically. is a professor of political science at the university of waterloo in canada she says it was right for turkey to take this dispute to the. the united states is claiming that there is some sort of national security imperative and putting on these tariffs and its supply have been to many countries as you said including canada which really finds its quite absurd so that's probably the right to move to take but of course that's going to be very painful for turkey and i would also point out this hits turkey specifically an arrow one and his political base because they're very much dependent on economic growth in the building sector in the construction sector so this is of course a very important input going having steel in construction is very important so it's
going to hurt definitely many of those very close to her one himself we can't really blame the united states for all of economic troubles of turkey because certainly it's been in high debt situation increasingly amounting allowing interest rates to rise enough to sort of combat some of these dilemmas a lot of dollar denominated debt i mean it's very much i think a homegrown problem which is early ones are making but certainly the announcements of tariffs on turkey and just the overall sort of you know instability brought into the the currency market is definitely not to rattle a lot of people and this is going to cause turkey more headache and grief economically for sure. emergency workers in the indian state of carola have been handing out medicines and disinfectant in a bid to prevent water borne diseases more than one point two million people are now living in temporary camps after the worst flooding in
a century thomas reports from paramatta in kerala. and still it rains the downpours all less heavy less frequent and shorter than they were but in kara they are still coming to people here fresh rain lengthens the time they'll have to stay in a camp. there are more than five thousand frost carola although really camp is to ground the words there simply community halls and schools which have opened their doors and quickly filled with people and each evacuee has a similarly harrowing story. and that the water has destroyed everything we had it was up to my neck it even took my cows. everything at home is lost and here there is nothing to do what can we do.
it's hot in this hole with no privacy or dignity some here were evacuated on thursday and i've now spent four days living this public school and like others were rescued only on sunday having spent four days and nights on the roofs of floors of the flooded homes both parents are equally exhausted. the exhaustion shows. that there is enough food here enough drinking water to and medicines. volunteer doctors at the center so they haven't yet seen outbreaks of disease as of now there are no thankfully and thanks to that are not many communicable disease or something like that we've just. been spreading because we're also getting prophylactic medicines acids. so that they let us know if we can make it something like that that's all that's what we are really working hard for that. but people's mental health is suffering everybody is simply at. india's air force on
monday distributed dramatic video of a toddler's rescue but most emergency evacuations are over and after the drama reality hits and andrew joins us live now from column in carolina andrew so you've been out and about in these flood hit areas what more you've been seeing there. well first of all he did a quick update on the numbers down because we had an update from the chief minister of carola very late on monday and he said that there are now more than a million people living in camps or in the temperature shelter like the one you saw in that report there so that is a staggering number of people and bear in mind that the majority of people whose homes are being flooded have remained inside their homes they haven't wanted to leave so we saw some of those people and they're getting relief supplies in very limited quantities drinking water food and medicine as well was almost about on sunday but that over
a million living in temporary accommodation is only part of the picture we also heard about the latest number of people who died in these floods and understand that two hundred twenty three just since may be eight when the worst of the rain fell and that's to date another six bodies were found during cleanup operations on monday and we're also hearing about some of the other things that happen when floods like these happen animal scouts that were living in some of the dams had to be released they are now in the water system fifty people according to multiple radio reports were trying to confirm it with a hospital at the moment have been bitten by vipers now those are life threatening illnesses but you can tell the sorts of things that people are dealing with the problems now of course are health primarily and the outbreaks potentially of disease that you get with this quantity of dirty water is dirty it stinks frankly as you drive around carola so many underground so which tanks were flooded and that has all now risen up so that's dirty water people have got wounds from where they were injured in the floods deaths and medicines to make sure that they don't get
ill in the first place and then if they do they're treated with things like rehydration solution that sort of thing that's the priority now are to under thomas then carol thank you. venezuelan president nicolas maduro his new monitor forms are now in place in a bid to control the country's spiraling economy but many venezuelans are confused by the measures and several of the country's opposition parties have already called for protests more than two million venezuelans have fled to neighboring countries in the past three years those countries have started cracking down on venezuelan migrants seeking to cross the border. it's a trick a make over the government is doing to the national economy it's a terrible deception removing five zero doesn't improve the economy at all but it will improve the theft people are going to be confused there's no posters explaining how to convert the old currency to the new one people have to take money out of their accounts and divide everything by ten thousand they tell you look at
this it costs five all of ours the people are going to have to take out a calculator how many are five ball of ours are they five hundred thousand or five million the government has to better explain to the public or latin america and it's a human has the latest. confusion concern and especially uncertainty of the only way to describe how most winners wayland's are receiving their new currency these are ten new ideas until friday they were worth a million of the old body that is there the maximum amount that you can take out of a cash machine at one time but they are not worth more they just have five less heroes than the old bills faced with the world's highest hyperinflation the government has not just shade in zero it's off the bills but is raising corporate and sales taxes and increasing the minimum wage several thousand percent venezuelans largest private business association says that this is not the way to save the economy. although it's necessary to raise salaries raising the minimum
wage by thirty five hundred percent makes it impossible for businesses to meet these new increases in an economy that is underwater because of a severe depression if hyperinflation is not controlled the impact of this increase will be totally counterproductive. president nicolas maduro says he'll subsidize small and medium sized companies for ninety days. here in caracas almost everything was closed on the first day of the new currency the government had declared one day a public holiday. thing is open complained this man not even the many supermarkets waiting to see what happened. indeed people are confused and with very good reason they don't know how to calculate what they're spending especially since the new salaries don't go into effect until next month in the meantime at least part of the opposition is calling for a general strike on tuesday to protest against the reforms which many economists say do not address the real issues the real causes of the crisis that is sending
millions of venezuelans feeling to other countries el salvador has severed diplomatic ties with taiwan and announced it will establish relations with china instead it's the third diplomatic ally that taiwan has lost this year of salvador's president salvador sanchez got in made the announcement during a televised speech the development means only seventeen countries currently have diplomatic ties with taiwan police in the russian republic of chechnya have shot and killed five men who targeted them the attackers tried to run over two police officers attempts to stab another and failed to set off a suicide bomb while i celestron responsibility for the assault but chechen authorities say the group doesn't have any support in the region. look it up with their criminals tried to destabilize the situation but they failed thanks to the accurate and orchestrated efforts of law enforcement and security agencies their plan was foretold the situation in the territory of our republic is under control there are no reasons to worry there have been no losses among police personnel roy
hallums is following developments from moscow. well there are two notable things about this series of attacks the first is that it took place at all despite its warts on history these days attacks like this are a pretty rare event in chechnya the second is notable thing is the youth of these attackers or thirty's in chechnya say that the youngest was eleven years old and the oldest of them was almost seventeen teenagers kids basically now the attacks three of them happens over the course of a short span of time one of them was an attempted stabbing on police officers the second was an attempted suicide bombing which fails the attacker didn't kill himself nor anyone else and the third was a kind of hit and run in
a car no police officers died in these attacks no civilians died in these attacks in the aftermath all but one of the attackers was killed by the security services so you could say that this was not particularly sophisticated in its execution and not particularly successful either the leader of chechnya rams i'm kadeer of has said that they were. basically young people that had had their minds perverted by ice and indeed in the aftermath of this attack or these this series of attacks i still through it's media channels has claims responsibility time for a short break here in al-jazeera when we come back pope francis writes a letter of apology to all catholics they'll be no more cover ups of sex abuse in the church and we hear from a migrant mother was forced to leave her son behind when she was deported after crossing the us mexico border more on that stay with us.

three hundred priests had abused more than a thousand children over seventy years well judy clapper at lawson's from the s. and p. that's the survivors network of those abused by priests she says the pope needs to take action instead of just apologizing. i would like to see the church open these secret archives that they have and give that information to law enforcement and the people in officials who can do a better investigation of these things. having the bishops investigate themselves. smacks of conflict of interest i think the royal commission in australia is a good template for everybody i think that the. grand jury investigation that was done in pennsylvania should be done in all fifty states in the united states and other countries should follow the lead of australia

is trying to enforce loyalty to the state after recent youth led protests in the united nations has blamed the saudi led coalition for most of yemen's child casualties from the past year it's also called for an investigation into the school bus attack that killed forty children earlier this month but children are in yemen are vulnerable in many other ways including being recruited as child soldiers mainly by the who through rebels so high right as this report and these college and his family are safe and now. this school in size has become their refuge since they were forced to flee her days weeks ago. if. they want to found signs of yemeni families who've fled the key port city off to the assault by the saudi coalition but on like many others his age niece has managed to avoid being forcibly recruited as a child soldier by the whole of the rebels. they turned up at my house and forced themselves in me in three friends were kidnapped drugged and beaten up the commander told us
they needed us to fight and sunnah but we managed to escape. and he says story is not an unusual one after more than three years of war and thousands of deaths the warring parties have turned to children to boost their ranks the united nations report documented the recruitment of more than eight hundred child soldiers in twenty seventeen in yemen some as young as eleven but the geneva base human rights group says the number of child soldiers fighting in the conflict is much higher. a lot of. the who feature taking advantage of the severe poverty families are living in children are being brainwashed to fight and some forcefully sent to training camps there who for years are going to schools and orphanages to recruit children we know of one thousand eight hundred cases but i think the figure is much higher. the u.n. report also found that nearly two thirds of child soldiers in yemen are fighting for the healthy in june human rights watch called on all parties in the conflict to
ensure that no children were taking part in the fighting in her data and to investigate and punish officers who allowed children in their units. we human rights watch and also interviewed people who fled from areas under control because of their fears that their children including. some of the people living in yours it's the also told us about their fear syrians says when i will never forget one of them saying the young children are. only describing young right now in the areas that yet that yet despite the testimonies and witness accounts the rebels have deny the accusations against them feel. completely deny reports that were used child soldiers and those on frontlines are men of age the law prevents children from being recruited to fight they are
still unable to hold a gun. under international law it's considered a war crime to recruit those under the age of eighteen for aunts conflict even yemeni sets eighteen as the minimum age for military service. as yemen suffers from the world's worst humanitarian crisis with unimaginable poverty and famine thousands of children are bearing the brunt of the conflicts. they might be singing and smiling but yemen has become one of the worst places in the world to be a child so to hide out al-jazeera. police in uganda have used live ammunition to disperse protesters in the capital kampala demonstrators were angry following the arrest of people including opposition politicians they were held on suspicion of taking part in stoning a presidential convoy on august thirteenth president with seventy rejects allegations the government's been torturing them on sunday one person died and

accused of treason. here in front of the military courts in a couple of days i'm not sure how the. rest in history. president donald trump has paid tribute to immigration officials during a white house event the federal agencies overseeing the nation's border have been thrown into the debate of a trump zero tolerance immigration policy for the separation of migrant children from their families after they need to cross the us mexico border but democrats are hoping the fallout will help them in the upcoming elections but trump says immigration will be the defining issue. we will protect those who protect us the extremists who attacked. c.b.c. like to portray themselves as champions of social justice they are not but their radical policies are the ultimate injustice hurting innocent americans and spilling innocent blood people are dying because of their either
a lack of knowledge lack of understanding or just plain stupidity you know the trumpet ministrations having trouble finding the deported parents of hundreds of children who remain in government kav the children were taken away from their parents after the across the border this year a judge ordered the family separations to end but reuniting them has been a problem how does a castro has that story. since being deported to guatemala two months ago or donna's lopez's lifeline has been her telephone each ring brings hope she'll hear the voice of her seventeen year old son jordan calling from two thousand kilometers away i always ask if he's ok he says yes but as his mother i know that's not true because he tells me mom my experience has been very difficult i never thought he'd be so far from me and he's heard mother and son had left quite a mullet together in may at the u.s.
border they used a raft to cross into the country then they turned themselves into u.s. border patrol. i thought i would find hope but instead i found this very cruel law the troubled ministrations zero tolerance policy resulted in the separation of almost three thousand children from their parents was prosecuted for a legal entry and deported while her son remained in detention in the us i wonder also it was very painful my intention wasn't to leave him in the united states my intention was to fight for him to fight together if a son is behind the gates of this government funded shelter near the us mexico border the children here are cared for they're fed they're even educated but they are not allowed to. jordan has been here for nearly three months despite a judge's order that all children separated from their parents at the border be
reunited with their families earlier this summer the government says the delayed reunifications are due to the difficulty of tracking down more than four hundred parents who like ever had been deported without their children in washington a democratic member of congress called the operation a colossal mistake i know. systematically separate infants and toddlers from their families. seem to me we're. brownlie betrayal of american values the government says it has no parental information of at least five children in its care effectively rendering them orphans if us worst fear is to never see her son again. i regret all of this because of the pain i've suffered all i had was my house i lost it but more important than that i lost my son the u.s. government has yet to say when or how her son will be returned to her until then
she says she thinks of nothing else. castro al-jazeera. to have a quick check of the headlines here on al-jazeera turkey has filed a complaint with the world trade organization over u.s. tariffs on steel imports president donald trump or that a doubling of tariffs earlier this month after turkey refused to release an american pastor who's been detained for nearly two years if. there's no difference between the direct attacks on our call to prayer in our flag and the attack on our economy the goal is the same the goal is to bring to heel turkey and the turkish nation to hold a captive we are nation that prefers to be shot in the nick rather than to be chained at the name. meanwhile two people have been detained out of bullets were fired towards the u.s.
