1:32 pm
a society that allows free expression in hong kong as elsewhere it's a crime to incite someone to violence but what happens if you simply encourage others to join a protest that then becomes violent anyone who attended and talks about it online is potentially in trouble and always have to understand for us technologists that nothing is absolutely secure. in especially if you are facing a very technically savvy police force and so on they awarded tuesday they need to you have to be careful stella another student knows that her worried parents persuaded her not to attend wednesday's protest so she worked from home on her device and helped by putting different groups in touch with each other although again yes i'm scared but he wants me from doing it there were important things and that there are people struggling on the front line and i feel like i owe it to. she

1:35 pm
for 15 straight months. china's government has released some ethnic kazakhs but those with chinese passports have no guarantee of asylum in kazakstan compared to china because it is relative haven for religious freedom but when it comes to human rights abuses in synch. because i called thirty's have tended to remain silent how could i lack belief. has been lately police have put pressure on minority rights groups who document and assist ethnic kazakhs escaping xinjiang. in march police raided the offices of. a human rights in geo and arrested its director sytycd. he's accused of calling for war against china and its policies. many catholics worry about xinjiang and chinese influence in the region protests in
1:36 pm
2016 against lord's that would have allowed chinese to purchase farmland with the largest years. china is closely watching what is happening in kazakhstan and is concerned about increasing anti chinese moods because like nationalism could become more radical that's why because i can and chinese authorities are cooperating on this. and as long as this cooperation last xinjiang is if the minorities be not get the protection here that they need. al-jazeera no matter what let's bring out of it to go who is a vice president of the center for china and globalization joins us live from beijing as we go welcome to the program tell us more 1st of all about what it is that china is so concerned about what's going on inside kazakhstan. no i think right now the overall situation in central asia is stable the war of the
1:37 pm
conflict in afghanistan still continues which creates negative impact on its neighboring countries and spill over into other central asian countries and also into china's cian jump province in particular from the chinese perspective maintaining peace and stability and promoting development in these central asian countries as well as between china and these countries is of crucial importance and regional cooperation is absolutely necessary and china believes that by promoting development project is a better way to fight against terrorism extremism and separatism for example and i think china's philosophy is to have as many friends as possible and respect each other as countries and as peoples and corporate in building our infrastructure
1:38 pm
connectivity projects as much as we can therefore for the 2 countries you mentioned they are very importantly connected to the whole eurasia and connectivity projects ok were you able to make it i knew well enough as more of the projects are linking to the rest of religion but you're not making many friends with u.n. organizations with human rights watch the organization for world peace it's report 10 days ago said that since 2014 the chinese state isn't gauging the systematic repression of 11000000 strong muslim weaker populations enjoying manifested as mass detention reeducation programs and pervasive state surveillance and they're not the only one saying it all away. well 1st of all i think your assessment is by as prejudicial if not alone is not referred to as an integrated into assessment secondly i understand it's an assessment in 2018 from the un human rights committee saying that they have credible reports of the detention of up to
1:39 pm
$2000000.00 we get another muslim minorities in political indoctrination calves and listen the the secretary general of the united nations in charge of human rights affairs recently paid a visit to xing jarl together with many high ranking diplomats of many countries based in beijing for example as well as to really coming from foreign countries and they've done their inspection of the situation over there they came up with their own conclusions please listen to that side of the story busy it is headed by the highest level of out of the united nations organization and why don't you look at what they report rather than look at some other associations for example which probably have an ulterior motive as to what exactly is happening inching jaar one thing for the record and i think i have full responsibility in saying that people in china does not want to have anything to do with terrorism extremism and
1:40 pm
separatism the chinese nation and the chinese people like me will be fully united to fight against terrorism that's the bottom line that whatever you report about cannot deviate from this overwhelming challenge that the chinese nation is faced with that is to maintain stability and make sure every one of the chinese people live in safety and security but to go thank you very much. when the border crossings between venezuela and colombia reopened it came as a relief for venezuelans desperate to cross over and get food medicine and other things they can't find at home but as i was on the reports an increase in police numbers means the journey now carries even greater risks for those without the right papers. colombian police on the move since been a swell announced the reopening of legal crossings in the border city of hundreds of policemen have been tasked with cracking down on venezuelans using illegal paths

be time in this in their pretty much in the tradition of this country in which console based their information there the judgments of the rulings on the evidence that's going to be available we have a we have a fairly elaborate justice system in the country so it's important for justice to be found for the victims of that brutal attack a little so important to get that i people who actually committed or cut it out of the the heinous act itself what lessons do you think the government has learned since the go to throw attack happened. i'm not sure if we're learning any lessons from the from the get his attack of the most important lesson is that on the morning this thing happened we know that the whole mark or the the time for these terrorists as we informed the system to move in with the speed because they will keep on killing indiscriminately until because
1:45 pm
this is this are people who have they have come to see say what you call attackers they don't intend to live the plane is a life so they will try and extract the maximum damage but it took us 11 hours for us to send me and the right team in there and the team you mobilize them within within 18 minutes so why it took the government such a long period of time to react. oh to take the the appropriate action in itself is questionable you don't understand what we have is in some parts of the world we have made of other problems probably it's the government did not do it enough i don't think we learnt a lesson from it we didn't learn a lot of a lesson from that one we didn't learn in the subsequent 20 and get to and what was essentially a terrorist attack by 4 people and could have been brought to a very quick end by a commando raid was done into a full military scale and that also cost those
1:46 pm
a lot of lives by the time it came to an end so we still keep on getting terrorist attacks in their part of the world and in the country but i don't think a lot of the lessons for the much of that are going to really help us to make sure that you have that i think televisions and right without any of that there's no there's not a smell just about how you deal with the attacks when they happen and stopping it happening in the 1st place. absolutely i mean that particular young man who was a university student was a law student and his father and the family was talking about the student and they knew he was not up to good but nobody acted on it that the information was available to the intelligence 2 months before that 2 weeks before the actual attack 2 days before the actual attack it's out another was done sometimes it looks like some of that what countries are we we want to be seeing to be there in the front line of terrorist attacks and waiting for that big bong when many people die in the process so that we get the international attention and
1:47 pm
a done all the other companies come to it i don't think we we're using the basic intelligence information that we need to use and we we did that i think we would have done it in the cheapest possible way and i don't think it would have had the problems it had now and that is also happening right now in many parts of the country i mean there was a. police. who had attacked the other day with a lot they were running after criminal al-shabaab guys who came and abducted some 2. guys but we bought my personnel carriers from from jordan we bought them from the chinese we're supposed to have so many of them but you don't see any of them going in action out the door and then you go with an ordinary lead crews which basically does not stop and that's that's how the officers know we've lost 8 officers that i think now and it's a sad thing about it but it's another thing we're going to leave it there we don't take you in the shuttle to space questions we need take we do appreciate a perspective that thanks very much indeed for joining us here in our deserts are

1:49 pm
they could hide for mission that's what i hear the head of the world health organization says efforts to contain the outbreak in democratic republic of congo have been hampered by militia attacks on treatment centers and hostility towards the medical teams so i think the political and security environment is very important otherwise we could have finished it it wouldn't have to contain ones. because in western reality there was outbreak from last year of may to august but it was controlled in 3 months because it was relatively stable. medical scientists are developing more vaccines but the challenge for many here is that a lot more of the research is done abroad welcome with a lot of international partners from the north to do our research and we are shipping talk many african countries now are reducing on shipment or specimens or the watch will be done locally but it will not. slowly but we are moving their identification. of doctors and nurses in uganda arcs. perience in dealing with

a place in the last 16 but they want to finish top of group c. with a win over brazil italy brazil is a narcotic fixture across the men's and women's game although italy's captain admits she could quite remember back to $99.00 which was the last slot that these 2 met at a walk out of the corner. i was a little girl and i didn't even know that there was a women's national team i was 10 years old and they wasn't the same level of attention that we had today i played with my friends and that's all well it's only our only need a draw to finish top and that could be enough for brazil as well but results kept him out a says i'll take no chances and i'm for all 3 points. i don't like going out to the pitch going for a time i always look for that when regardless of the situation i think our squad is ready for it and we're going for the win. well australia's matilda's are the other team that could progress from a group c. they thought from 2 goals down to beat brazil in their last game but they still file the one goal difference the aussies know they need
