3:00 am
about what happened within the next week to. india and pakistan and across the line of their white separating indian administered kashmir from the. pakistani prime minister has already responded. by saying that. dialogue and wars are discussed everything including. the future of the disputed territory of me. any military spokesman has also been speaking on national television saying that. indian media on the other side of war mongering and building. one. for the security of the whole region. has prepared for war and he also warned that if the indians are planning
3:01 am
a surprise against pakistan anything or didn't you should be ready for the pakistani. he said the whole nation stirred together and did not warn india to get the message that the message of the world also a message of weakness already i spoke to shock she thought an indian whole position in peace from the congress party i began by asking him what he wants the indian government to do. well i'd like them to be doing things we can talk about frankly i'd like them to be exacting a certain amount of retribution we know who the culprits are they've been running around on the loose in pakistan for some years and we seem to be unfortunately confined to sort of fulminating about them the sad thing is they enjoy the patronage and the protection and apparently the arms and the training of the pakistani military and that's something that really gets the goat of many many indians so these are things that worry us very seriously it's a it's
3:02 am
a dangerous and irresponsible thing to do and obviously the country to that degree is pretty united on this there are other aspects on which we will have political differences but what is one of those then talk about some well i mean everything about for example why this was actually allowed to happen in the first place whether our security preparations were adequate why there was such a large convoy a pile of able public access to it why it was possible for someone to smuggle in three hundred fifty kilograms of r.d.x. across the border and bring them into into into indian territory so all of these questions are legitimate some have been asked by my party but these are issues of detail on the fundamental question of responsibility for the section we know that did the twenty six eleven the murder of one hundred sixty six indians and others in mumbai in two thousand and eight we know jesse mohamad there's laid claim to this
3:03 am
particular atrocity this year and there have been a number of smaller attacks that have taken a more modest number of victims of victims none the less in the years in between i mean frankly a lot of people in india have said we've had enough and the problem is the straw that breaks the camel's back is this one it's we all hope not but but there is a level of tolerance beyond which we we cannot go and of course indian elections are coming up later this year obviously you're hoping that your party. he will will get back into government if you were in a position of power the congress party what would you be doing then well again we wouldn't be talking about it in any great detail in public we've got to understand that these are very very serious matters what we're going through at the moment is something which has caused a great deal of pain and anguish across the country these forty coffins have gone through the various corners of the country a paramilitary are recruited from everywhere they represent people of every faith every background every religion and and and therefore it's united india in
3:04 am
a very very painful way so some sort of action some sort of reciprocation is absolutely essential but at the same time i think responsible heads wanted to be measured toward full and proportionate to the atrocity i don't think there's any serious clamor for all out war i'm easels outbreak in the philippines is quickly getting worse close to eleven and a half thousand people have contracted the highly contagious virus since january at least one hundred eighty nine mostly children have died jamila and organ reports from manila. well health officials have announced that there is a sharp increase of measles related cases just over the last few days from a few days ago eight thousand children being afflicted of measles just today more than eleven thousand cases have already been reported more than one hundred eighty children have died and this is from just the start of january alone this is
3:05 am
something that could have been prevented according to health officials because as early as two thousand and seventeen they have been warning that an investigation that started then a very public investigation involving a research related vaccine was going to create a vaccine scare in different parts of the country that did happen with joint health officials a few weeks ago when they conducted the what you call a back to vaccine program encouraging mothers to have their children vaccinated they hope that some that something that government agencies will help them to do so even though many lives not the only is city or area here in the country affected by this measles outbreak the tendency for the city to actually have a sharp increase of missiles related cases is expected to get even worse that is because of a very dense population here at the capital the health officials are calling on different government agencies to get involved to actually encourage. filipino mothers across the country to have their children vaccinated hoping this will be
3:06 am
the start of an important lesson that the country and government officials can learn. a sixteen year old swedish environmentalist has taken her campaign to paris to join a protest in the french capital she's spearheading a movement of school strikes to highlight the inaction by governments on global warming a world wide demonstration is planned for the fifteenth of march david chaytor was at the rally in paris. it is remarkable how the voice of just one swedish sixteen year old student has changed the whole atmosphere of climate change activism she started off protest thanks september one date september now she's been to united nations been to davos and here she is in paris let's hear what she's having to say when i first started striking i didn't really expect anything i just thought that i will just have to see what happens and. but then i would never have imagined that
3:07 am
it was going to be this big. and i think it's incredible it's just it's a surprise every time i see someone else striking and it's it feels incredible. reaches says that action must be taken now you don't have time for her generation to take they must see it different now and that is a view that's being supported by many many people here in the past the republic is really spent for me come of what you would i hope the politicians will listen to them look how much press came here to listen to these kids more than listen to us who are always giving interviews i think people trust them they believe they are free it's sincere concerning their future not only for decades but for generations to come this is the first time readers voice has been in paris which was of course the host city that climate because president emmanuel michel did try and stick to his ambitions modern climate change and being increased the price of diesel but of

3:16 am
demand to expel those accused of sexual crimes and those who cover for them from the clergy the head of the roman catholic church has been hosting a four day conference to address the scandal rory challenge from the vatican. on day two of this meeting cardinals have been talking about the systematic failure over the years of the catholic church to deal with the problem of sexual abuse by clergy they've been speaking of the need for bishops and cardinals to police each other's behavior. survivors have been responding to this documents twenty one points it's called reflection points being put out by the vatican as a kind of working templates as a handbook a practical handbook for the roman catholic church to deal with sex abuse cases as they come up in the future now survivor pressure groups have been saying that this doesn't go nearly far enough it doesn't have the kind of language that
3:17 am
they would like to see reflected obvious zero tolerance now for them zero tolerance means excluding abusive priests from the priesthood and those who cover up abuse as well they say that the pope was using the language of zero tolerance not so long ago last year but it seems to have been dropped from the proceedings it's not being talked about in this meeting and it's not being talked about in this document either tim law is a founding member of the advocacy group ending clergy abuse he's also disappointed with the pope's action plan. we are outraged and feel betrayed by these twenty one points back in august pope francis wrote a letter this was not comments on the bus or on the airplane as the norm that this was a letter to the people of god basically to the whole world. recognizing that zero
3:18 am
tolerance was necessary for abuse and for the cover up of the abuse that there's no prime more no more time to delay we need to take action action is necessary then september the the month following he calls for the summit out of the blue a spectacular gesture and you tie the two together zero tolerance summit and the expectations are reasonable and high that this summit will deal with zero tolerance so then comes this document and the word is not even mentioned there's nothing in this document that even comes through remotely close to zero tolerance. and so again it's an outrage and betrayal to what he promised and in august what we know that two thirds of the bishops here are from the developing countries and that they are putting pressure we believe on francis to an act is zero
3:19 am
tolerance policy as a universal law of the church and fred francis i think is inclined to do that but if he does that there could be a revolt we want to protect children children around the world and these bishops are protecting themselves first and. children second if at all. and i jury and so are preparing for saturday's presidential election the vote was originally last week but perspiring just five hours before polls were going to open their concerns the delay and fears of ethnic violence could mean less voter turnout john how as more from a budget. the union stars of nigeria's film and dance world in a video promoting a peaceful election yes and the commission. there are concerns about the country's ability to hold a successful presidential poll this weekend after last saturday's surprise delay and some fear

a return of ethnic violence triggered in the past by disputed results with the background that we already have and would have so much lost be shown on misgivings and so on i have about about security agencies about the government itself and so on and so forth but it's a high risk that results will be disputed people would reduce the protests the results in some places under the high risk of. in a crowded field of candidates to stand out president mahmoud who bihari whose critics say he's failed on the economy fighting corruption and insecurity and one time vice president atiku abubakar accused of corruption but promising business friendly policies and jobs despite reassurances by the government down the independent election commission i nick that the poll will happen this time and be free and fair trust in the process has been dented not the public trust in government was all that high to begin with if one has gone through the roof is all
3:21 am
over what would you think. if i see one after spending so many years with you this is why we've come out here betting on one thing for talking about who would join and why do you think that is if anybody's votes and who do you blame for that you know tell me you know. you. people in the nigerians have reason to be hopeful and reason two thousand and fifteen was the first election won by an opposition candidate since democracy was restored after military rule in nineteen ninety nine made people feel that their votes and did not count but many see. it in this election around it's. procreating cancer cases but an attempt to make the right step in the election observers foreign and local trying to ensure there doesn't happen. is a leading civil society groups sending more than three thousand observers to
3:22 am
polling stations and conducting a parallel vote count on election night. and we believe that as an institution that . having the observer. system would help with votes and say. because we want to actually count nigeria is africa's most populous country the continent's biggest economy its branch toil wealth means who runs it matters but epic levels of poverty and unemployment suggest that job could be done better go to whole al-jazeera. on sunday for its presidential election has been no televised debate some candidates agreed to take part in a public forum to attract young voters and with the average age of eighteen securing the youth vote could be the key to victory. ordinary people got a rare chance to hold

3:24 am
you have young people. think really i don't think it's about age i think it's about the vision and i think that nowadays. you have. to identify. after two thousand and have lived under only two presidents during the campaign many took to social media calling for a televised debate but with incumbent president and opposition. refusing to take part in such an event the broadcast. it cannot take place on. television. people no longer vote for candidates based on religion or ethnicity they vote for ideas that's why we need a forum like this where the senegalese are better informed and can make the right choice since independence there have been eleven presidential elections all of them resulting in peaceful transitions of power senegal may have
3:25 am
a long tradition of democracy and open discussion but not of public debate organizers of this event say attitudes are changing because the many who are attending this event are first time voters and they are no longer afraid of confronting powerful politicians in public and asking them tough questions. climate change pollution unemployment or minority rights important to young cynical while politicians make promises many say they are still undecided on how to vote. nicholas hawke al-jazeera the car a public hearing has begun in bangladesh or the result of this disputed election the opposition says prime minister landslide win was rigged and is calling for a new vote under a neutral government. several hundred people gathered here at the bangladesh supreme court auditorium for a public hearing on the controversial december thirty election this was called
