it's good to have you with us the sound of gunshots from last friday. i faded but they've left a trail of tears in their wake. destroyed plans. many of those who came from pakistan india. and other countries in the region people such as a twenty six year old. and only son he moved from karachi to new zealand for a job he wanted to help support his family back home twenty five year old. husband moved. to new zealand. she was pursuing a degree in agriculture then this fifty year old. from. the teacher moved to new zealand eight years ago. his actions in the mosque on friday.
the haka performed by schoolchildren in honor of the victims of friday's terror attack. the maori ceremonial dance was traditionally performed by warriors to intimidate therefore. it is perhaps no greater tribute to the character and courage of this man name rashid who gave his life trying to stop the gunman entering the mosque and his needs of pakistan his family gather in grief finding solace in his heroism i saw that video and the first thing i wanted to see was that look in his eyes i did not see an iota of fear and there's ice and that made me proud what a brave man he was he's my hero at least. mourners here are praying not just for
name the father of three died along with his twenty one year old son tala for their cats in kenya they were she'd sacrifice sets an example for humanity. they left a message for human being in the. dark messages that if you see something. happening that is not good for other humans or if that is hurting other people you give your everything. even if mean if it means giving your life. the father and son are among nine victims originally from pakistan known to have been killed on friday. in a tweet pakistan's prime minister imran khan praised niamh for trying to tackle the white supremacist attacker he said nine's courage would be recognized with a national award. man who would be

of his son to love was a war period in this going it back and the family now states that you know while we were discussing how we can going to raise the marriage until a few days ago or not we are talking about the funeral of blame and. reside in there not pakistan and something is not a stranger but the kind of extremist violence that has been perpetrated in new zealand what is the reaction been a participant in this kind of violence against pakistanis and muslims abroad. well in the when we talk about new zealand sitting here in pakistan know well people in pakistan consider me new zealand as the safest and very peaceful country so it was kind of a shock for the people to get to know about this kind of attack but as the premise of pakistan states that you know terrorism is very very heavy countries facing it and whenever there is such kind of an attack one should call it a terrorist attack and this was the concern of the pakistani people here in
pakistan but as the prime minister of music don stated as a as a stick at this as a terrorist attack you know people have taken all this very positively here in pockets on terrorism is a global draw now that's what the people of oxen or the community deprived of spock's one believes and that needs to be developed in the same day if you mention the prime minister. of new energy did call this a terror attack but she is also being praised around the world for handling of the aftermath of this terrible tragedy what is the reaction been in pakistan to that where people in pakistan have to conduct very positively not only the statements and the way she tackled the whole situation but also those images ventilator here in pakistan when she went on to is that the mosque where she was hugging the muslim community living in new zealand and the way she was dressed up the way she stepped to the situation the way she scored the terrorist attack everything has been taken
a very positively front by the people of pakistan so i'm carla speaking to us from islam thank you very much. to taiwan now which is marking five since the historic protest movement back in march twenty fourth this is what thailand's palmach looked like mostly students incest by trade deal with china occupied parliament for more than two weeks they were part of the so-called sunflower movement name so for the sunflowers demonstrators got it as a symbol of hope they claimed the trade deal made taiwan too dependent on china and harmed its political autonomy but five years later what is the situation in taiwan phoebe kong aust one of the protests he does what impact the movement had on the island and on the trade deal in particular. in terms of these will be we can say that. this is the big picture.
we. will be able. to be on. for the. people on the war divided. and the progressive. minority. to the majority of the. orders of. in many ways so this is to be the biggest challenge you know we have in the midst of all this is a member of. the crew we live in the now we because we need you we need you. to. reveal the linkage between earth and. the civil side. it was the world's first hospital on rails for twenty years he has india's lifeline express has been providing services to the country's so-called
medical deserts disadvantaged regions with next to no access to public health care now when the hospital train rolls into town people can get life changing treatments free of charge he has a look at how the mobile finnick is making a difference. they arrived full of hope ready to embark on a journey of healing. people come from across the region to board this train that will soon change their lives passengers actually patients waiting for cataract surgery. but these elderly travelers can't afford much needed operations. the lifeline express is an unexpected boon hospital train that brings healthcare to india's rural poor once onboard patients discover a cutting edge clinic. the ten doctors and eight nurses here today are all volunteers they come from all over donating their time.
for oka by this operation will be an adventure into the unknown. to turn out a. good fit into. i'm really happy i don't know what's going to happen during the operation and i'm a little scared. but if i'm sweating i would go out i think of all the people who work hard to heal us that they do so much for the poorest people got them caught up. in fact that happens to patients is time until. we see life changing all the way. and life from expenses call of magical caring. but the challenge is to spread word of the train out to far flung communities these deeper trolls get the job done.
let's. take this it's about a free medical training come for a check or pick up. but it's about we go from village to village to distribute these flyers it warms my heart because these are extremely poor areas where they need to be told that there is free care. for to it and it is a. most people who live in these alleys have never been to the hospital. a clear see here treatments i treatments that are the ones that are yes that's a good i'm going to go that's for sure. back on the lifeline express his operation is complete should only have a few minutes to recover before joining her husband outside. she seems to be doing much better than before her down the young i don't have the words
. we're very grateful to. another success story for the lifeline express over the past thirty years it's operators say they've completed one hundred and thirty thousand operations reaching more than ten million patients in need. more stories on our website did up new dot com. on facebook as well. live in over there are just. where the community has been mourning those killed as of preyed on friday the victims region from. many countries across asia.
no curves with me good morning stephanie. the caribbean chapter with musicians from around the world. every week to w. . it could be a break from decades of judicial indifference french marines for offshore oil and gas. in court accused of suspicious activities in three african countries. also on the show more than half the world's population has internet access but to speak and cost to vary from continent to continent we ask how does africa face the challenges of the digital age. and europe marks equal pay day
but figures show equality is still a long way off why. welcome to the business africa i want to go jones in berlin thanks for tuning in and we are starting with what looks like another battle in a long fight to stop firms from bribing african authorities for winning lucrative contracts we're talking about the trial of the bourbon group which got under way in the french city of must say today a french group specializes in providing marine services for the oil industry and apparently it played the system very well using judicial indifference in some african nations now the group is accused of bribing public officials in three african countries this is really an hour after proceedings began the court was suspended the defense lawyers for the bourbon group claimed they hadn't been given enough.
