6:00 pm
we just have to get you a perspective and. so the fire heard her enthusiasm there for her time with the fellows and now mentoring them i'm wondering in your case what are you hoping to get out of this mentoring session and the session with the fellows and with the dalai lama yourself. the whole session has been so so exciting one thing i learned from. the rest of the facilitators is that kind of emphasis they try to put in our daily piece building techniques that response to to imply and so i felt it was so noticing and so encouraging and we we learned a lot of techniques on how we can build peace in our communities but we did the right lama i grew up with my grandmother and hearing stories and experiences of how she lived her life had shipped how i should live mine and so with the dalai lama he
6:01 pm
shared his experiences as a refugee and as a person growing and growing up as a refugee i really learned a lot and so putting the training session from. from all the facets it has and also . with his holiness the dalai lama putting all this together i feel it has a really positive impact in the work that i do and in the environment that i grow up in so the whole program is so so amazing i'm just looking at. the first day of you know you flooded style with. press play so we can see some of the pictures there. as you're talking to his holiness are you getting a sense that he understands the part of the world that you're coming from saying look i think south sudan does he know the issues that why the conflict is still going on and the nitty gritty of it. well i think of conflict. as this can this and i mix and i went when i introduced him. what is happening in
6:02 pm
south sudan myself so he kind of related it to most of the conflicts around and also you give examples like the conflicts in. nigeria and also in afghanistan so most of the conflicts have been going to the same dynamics and so. all the answers and all the kind of wisdom we're trying to get to get from him all relatable. he understands the kind of situation that we are also in in south sudan and so whatever advice he's trying to get for us the youth to have possible our own inner peace is something that that is so general that every other conflict in country the other youth in any other country to country should hear not only south sudan so it relates to south sudan and also to any other conflict a country. with any sway. his holiness of what was happening in venezuela
6:03 pm
yes i think one of the most interesting thing about this program is allows you to give. shot of the conflict and the way you live you know the concept because it's way different how other than a stance so i have the opportunity to tell my story. you know the crisis of food and medicine the missile is getting worse and worse and my question was elated to you know how this problem istar from an idea and you know escalate to humanitarian crisis so i think he has a very good understanding of the basis. of the concept which is basically one leader or one religious idea one political ideas that escalate to you know head and consulate so. his knowledge being in conflict all his life like when he was fourteen he lost his freedom and then he came to india i think gave him a credit on understanding what assets you have to leave he has to leave his country
6:04 pm
as the same way i i had to so i think i can relate we have in a lot of things and that can help me a lot to see maybe some practices that he implemented in his leadership skills you know at the end can help his people back into you know if you see you mentioned you've been discussing how things are going to humanitarian crisis level so i want to bring up to treat status of the dalai lama about two hot button issues right now that are on the humanitarian crisis level a question for you on twitter this person says why is the dalai lama not doing more on the rohingya genocide they call it by me and more another person writes and what have you done to internationalize the plight of the we in china so to communities that are facing persecution what are your thoughts on.

6:13 pm
what she describes as the shockingly brazen killing of saudi journalist. pakistan's top court acquits a christian woman who was sentenced to death on charges of blasphemy. and how does a country measure happiness when the mountain kingdom of her tongue to find out. it's time to replace combat without compromise that's the message from the u.s. defense secretary to everyone and volved in yemen's war james mattis says he wants as he puts it the peace table within a month he builds on pressure from others in the trunk administration who want the conflict to end as was and told reports from washington d.c. . since yemen cratered into civil war in two thousand and fourteen the damage and the carnage have been relentless. an estimated fifty six thousand civilians have
6:14 pm
died either because of widespread food shortages disease or airstrikes carried out by the saudi led coalition in support of president months or hard now a call to end the war from u.s. defense secretary jim mattis whose forces provide intelligence and equipment support to the saudi coalition our goal right now is to achieve a level of. capability by those forces fighting against them that they are not killing innocent people. the longer term solution and by longer term i mean thirty days from now we want to see everybody around a peace table based on ashish fire based on a pull back from the border and then based on chief sheen dropping of bombs that will permit the special envoy martin griffin to very good he knows what he's doing to get them together and sweden and this war that is the only way we're going to
6:15 pm
really solve this. thing improved accuracy of bombs is still a war show we've got to move toward a peace effort here and we can't say we're going to do it sometime in the future we need to be doing this in the next thirty days we've admired this problem for long enough down there and i believe that the saudis and the emirates are ready and in fact at the who do not walked out of the last effort of martin griffin had going we would probably be on our way there right now. the trumpet ministration has been criticized for not keeping the saudi led coalition from bombing yemen civilians it has blamed rebels who things are using civilians as human shields and that is told in washington on hands he doesn't want to see the saudis how to target who confided more effectively we've got to replace combat with compromised and we are working as
6:16 pm
we speak with mr martin griffith the u.n. special envoy i've met with him my shellshock a pompei i was talking to him frequently as we try to amass the international support we just met. in the nama in the nama dialogue and this was brought up forcefully not just by myself but by others as well that it's time to stop this madness is call for peace talks was backed up later on tuesday by the secretary of state my home pedo he said both the who these and the saudis must stop their attacks and start peace talks under u.n. auspices in november. the u.s. says it wants to save lives in yemen a point which the french defense minister florence probably underscored earlier on tuesday to increase in many humanitarian crisis like we've never seen before because of this what's important is that this war ends its time it is time now that this war ends and it's also important and it's the priority for france that the
6:17 pm
humanitarian situation improves and that aid is allowed through because it's an outrageous situation. the next step could be the hardest convincing both sides in the yemen civil war there is a cost for not making peace rosalyn jordan al-jazeera washington. same event mass is also just a matter of jamal kushal jame in saudi journalist was killed inside the kingdom's consulate in istanbul on the second of october the president said we want to get to the bottom we will get to the bottom of it and as you know turkey has. show far provided evidence for every allegation that they have made about what happened and show no one nation control all the information and i spoke to the foreign minister shaadi arabia two days ago in managua and he said there would be
6:18 pm
a full investigation and the un human rights chief says international experts should help investigate what she's called a shockingly brazen killing of jamal khashoggi michel but she spoke through a through a spokesman also a saudi arabia to reveal the location of his remains. she did say for an investigation to be carried out free of any appearance of political considerations the involvement of international experts with full access to evidence and witnesses would be highly desirable but it was not a call for an international investigation she also underscored the need. for forensic examination and for the saudi authorities to reveal the whereabouts of the body of mystic sochi let's go live now to the saudi consulate in istanbul and festivals and again just bring us up to speed with what's been going on berent. well saudi arabia's top prosecutor has been since late sunday he held two meetings
6:19 pm
with his temples top prosecutor the man investigating the case into the killing of . those two meetings did not produce any results according to our sources in turkey's prosecutor's office in fact they are blaming saudi arabia for trying to delay and stall and with some accusations that saudi arabia came here to find out what evidence that turkey has instead of wanting to cooperate for example on monday turkey expected saudi arabia to provide the testimonies of the eighteen suspects who have been detained and that didn't happen until the next day and once they handed over those testimonies there was little or anything to add to the investigation so a lot of questions remain unanswered turkey demanding to know where is the body or the body parts of. and saudi arabia really not cooperating so there's a lot of frustration we even heard turkish president or dawn say that a game is being played to cover up for someone to protect someone he didn't name
6:20 pm
that person but a columnist who writes for a pro-government newspaper who is very close to the turkish president named that person and he said saudi crown prince muhammad bin some and so a lot of frustration here that saudi arabia is not cooperating we know that turkish investigators wanted to search a well in the consul general's residence but that has still not happened and they say the interesting timing we've got these reports of king solomon's younger brother returning to the kingdom of saudi arabia what do we know about. yes there have been reports that prince bin abdel-aziz the full brother of the saudi king salmen he has returned to riyadh this is according to press reports there is no official confirmation from saudi arabia indeed significant because of the timing at a time that saudi arabia is coming under international pressure to come clean on what exactly happened inside that consulate and to come clean on who ordered that killing and the international outrage is pointing the finger at the defacto ruler
6:21 pm
of saudi arabia crown prince mohammed bin solomon so this is the full brother of king cell a man who has been living in london ever since mohamed been summoned took the reins of power and what we understand is that they do not have a good relationship in fact it's an open secret that the prince i'm a bit abdel-aziz was an outspoken critic of mohamed bin so man criticizing him in public so significant timing is something in the works in saudi arabia of course we cannot isolate this from what we heard from the u.s. defense secretary the united states really has come under a lot of criticism for supporting the saudi led coalition in the war in yemen now we're seeing a new policy a new u.s. policy and it's not just that at the end of the day saudi arabia is a strategic ally for the united states the united states doesn't want to see it destabilized in any way it needs saudi arabia to pursue its foreign policy in the region so is something being worked out behind the scenes that will satisfy all
6:22 pm
parties there is no doubt. she's killing caused an international crisis now there seems to be attempts to contain this crisis and indeed very interesting story to keep a very close eye on for the moment zain a or leave it there thanks very much for joining us from istanbul. supreme court judges in pakistan have acquitted a christian woman sentenced to death for blasphemy and her baby was convicted of insulting the prophet mohammed eight years ago a farm worker and mother of four was accused of insulting islam after she went to fetch water and two muslim women refused to drink from the same container used by a christian well a mere rumor of blasphemy can ignite violence and back is done where allegations of the crime of become a rallying cry for ultra conservative muslim groups accusations have resulted in lynchings and extrajudicial murders throughout the country at least seventy four people have been killed in violence related to blasphemy since one nine hundred ninety in two thousand and ten a vocal opponent of the blasphemy law print jobs then the governor there was killed
6:23 pm
by his own bodyguard after calling for babies release a year later pakistan's sole christian minister. was shot dead after pushing for reform and this past year a court sentenced a man to death for murdering a student who was falsely accused of blasphemy michel can was dragged out of his university accommodation and beaten before being shot and his body mutilated. well protests have begun already against the age of babies acquits so these demonstrations and the whole are being organized by the conservative terek in the bike posse participants in chanting death to the judges who made the ruling and demanding that prime minister imraan khan with sign it up pakistan come correspondence come all hydras have on sets where this come on is a hugely volatile situation at the moment in pakistan in reaction to this ruling how should the government respond whether the government can say that the decision
6:24 pm
was made by a bogus on the supreme court one has to remember as you mentioned she were imprisoned and sentenced her did back in two thousand and nine after they were appeals from the right taken and as you mentioned the governor was short dead by head and body guards or where there's a shoe so this is something the government can say look it's that jarred it is the supreme court would be an independent it is their decision the government had nothing to do with that however as you mentioned this is a contentious issue the religious far right particularly the backyard wrestling led by saddam hussein very broad islamabad to a war to a standstill last year it led to the resignation of the country's law minister and many people were killed so i think there's going to be a strong reaction but the government can come around and say look it is not our decision the supreme court is free and therefore it is the decision of the supreme court so how unsafe then it is and indeed the judges that acquitted her where that
6:25 pm
she definitely would have to leave the country because ago and family who had gone to england had already expressed their reservations that even if she is the acquitted it will be very dangerous for her to live in prague just on the digital likelihood that if you will be flown out of the country as soon as possible it is going to be very tricky because. as of right now the protesters are on the streets and there's likely a likelihood that there may be violence why does pakistan have things past from the last when when they also inflammatory when these loans dated back to the times when the british were ruling india and i think they were using that in order to try and keep our many amongst the various religions because india was very polarized running into religious issues however. to try and more defy this law and there were those or an attempt to amend the law but that led to
6:26 pm
a huge reaction because the far right ignored willing to listen to reasoning and therefore it is something that has become very very tricky however people know that this is a controversial law and you can order inside the mall or mall while and kill people and take the law into your own hands there has to be conclusive evidence to suggest that yes somebody is guilty the prosecution in this case would way we except for the like your nation's from the three women there was nothing concrete to prove that she had indeed committed blasphemy so i think the country will have to revisit these laws they're being misused and of course there's an element of blackmail when it comes to the far right the religious parties ok well come for me but we'll leave it at that look at the having her in the studio thanks mom. well the weather is next and then. officially becomes a haven. for improvements.

as a courageous step by which seeks to assume a pioneering role in the gulf region in terms of human rights. human rights watch has described the law as the first of its kind in the gulf region but it says the law fallen short of international human rights legal standards it is a very good step forward however. there we still have reservations about these laws because it falls short of their international obligations as specially when it comes to freedom of expression and it's important to. that is the first country in the agent to provide asylum seekers' safe haven for this kind of law however it is still very politically sensitive that has been criticized by neighbors especially the locating countries for providing this kind of safe however for political dissidents regional context might be sensitive but qatar is going to host the football world cup within four years from now and aside from the international scrutiny under which the country is placed qatar says it's seizing the opportunity

6:50 pm
one of the major problems that over stills and zambia essentially the problem is that you will the lens which sits just behind your people goes from being totally transparent to a bit cloudy and that's more important to know if it is a nice way to demonstrate this if at the moment of normal vision and then with the cataracts. the vision degrades to us so you can imagine the impact with the surgery going to return to know. that you have another unique tool. training program and i see a leader that would use it to get back to the head i heart and i started out after all i just write to you what the leader does ok land track i'd love to go yeah here's my patient gets here's your page luckily not real these days are icing a major you know you're going to grasp they're trying goals and put it in the center you go too low you get the plans and get the culture and you don't hire you
6:51 pm

6:52 pm
some are not i don't know you that was how can i say. that it was. like i. a key element of the old this program is to work with local medical start using local facilities this ensures that even when the plane is gone the much needed specialist i treatment can still be provided in zambia this training is done it could to a central hospital where dr m. boney works our children and i problems vision impairment is not a big problem in zambia we have about fifty thousand children we did you get into the country since all of this came to keep the provider what we needed to sit there
6:53 pm
only to give people a simple. this is the only guy hospital children that hospital in zambia yes is glad that we have. three young sisters have travelled over sixteen hours by box with their mother to receive treatment from you will be steamed. all three suffer from varying degrees of cataract blindness which has caused them to fall behind at school as i can see. two of the sisters are now recovering from the surgery. so we're just in the main hospital now just to go out going to one of the wards to meet lucy who's the third child of the family who is having cataract operation this afternoon so from this way. they're. going to share any motion me lucy. what lucy what's your favorite subject in school what you like to learn about this one issue is just really interesting also. so.
6:54 pm
how is your english lucy one. year. untasted. so this issue lucy has that she has cataracts in both eyes and appears as though she has normal visual ability but in fact it's significantly impaired so much so that it's had a real impact on being able to go to school and her lifestyle at home so with the intervention this afternoon with the right medical treatment which may be able to make a real positive impact on that. i don't see if they don't question this surgery is another opportunity for doctors benjamin anam bony to work together your age this kid. so they're all set to go in theatre should now sort of sleep under general anaesthetic the surgeons are scrubbed and set to go so this can see how they came.
6:55 pm
during the operation the cataract is removed through a tiny incision in the on and a synthetic lens is inserted and i'll just use the pick up laser fifteen degree being prepared two point seven five. you see on the screen there and. some things as return the transparency to the people. and therefore should provide a good outcome for the c. o u. u u k. k yeah for adelaide. you see that that's it that's.
6:56 pm
