6:01 pm
bangladesh will look after them but at some point me and mom must take them back also on the grid getting an education should be a right but more than half the world's registered refugees are children and they're missing out on the global education report and just what it will take to make sure the next generation doesn't fall through the cracks fortunately there are organizations working around the world to reach these children. we'll take a look at how some of them are tackling that monumental challenge. and in sport international cricket returns to pakistan for years it's been considered just too dangerous for visiting take spots now an invitational world's team is about to play the first of three matches against the huns i guess security is high so to. help. you with the news grid live on air and streaming online through you tube facebook live and at al-jazeera dot com and while we see the planet. you're regularly on our screens now
6:02 pm
bangladesh's prime minister has gone to see them for herself and promised her country will look after them so far three hundred seventy thousand ranger across the border looking for refuge from what the un is now calling ethnic cleansing. and while prime minister sympathizes with them she also says me and i will have to take them back one day begins our coverage now from in bangladesh and. some of the recently arrived at the prime minister who's giving them refuge sheikh hasina condemned the me and my government for causing at least three hundred seventy thousand people to flee across the border in just three weeks but she says they don't belong here. that should. all this isn't back to do they should. go back
6:03 pm
and also. and also. that they should push. so that they. should take them back. this is one of the camps she visited and. for families live in this shelter they exist on handouts from charities they have no clean water and their tent is always wet from the monsoon rains. we want to live here safely in bangladesh this is why we escaped but we need food and somewhere to live. and says they need medicine for a baby who was burnt as they escaped she worries that her children will not survive the camp. we ask her if she would return to me in march if the government provides a safe zone as requested by the prime minister. to go back to tell us how can i forget babies like this being thrown into the fire by the
6:04 pm
military. the un has denounced me and this is for secondary school just twenty three percent of refugee adolescents are enrolled in secondary school the global right is more like eighty four percent and similarly for universities it's even worse one percent of refugees are youth youth refugees i should say manage to get university or college the go right it's thirty six percent. as our correspondent in lebanon he has this now from the bekaa valley. of the more than five hundred thousand syrian refugee children in lebanon most of them are not enroll in schools the children you see around me here in this informal classroom these are among the many syrian refugee children that have to work for a living even at this young age in order to support their families that's why they come to volunteer programs like this so that in their spare time they can try to continue a little bit of their education i want to bring in a guest this is laid out with the beyond
6:05 pm
a non-governmental organization you helped run this fall into your center can you tell us why this type of program is so important first its implementation for this track to plan combating force from child labor and the bene and it's for protecting the children. from the worst form of child labor and to help them to. to a new rule to public school after that so here it's a place for them to have education protection technical stuff for life skills classes and even. be it to protect them to help them and to refer them after to public schools thank you data services like this are extremely important for these refugee children when you hear the dire warnings that have been put out like group by groups like you and h.c.r. and unicef it's because of situations like the situation currently in lebanon that's why so many have been warning repeatedly the last few years that this generation could turn out to be
6:06 pm
a lost generation yet well earlier i spoke to the c.e.o. of save the children in jordan run the amount he remembered jordan hosts the massive refugee camp where the bulk of syria's refugees have ended up and while there are so many children going without education at all we did start by talking about what some children do managed to get in a place like saudi. there are certainly educational programs and learning programs that are being offered in the saturday camp and also in the host communities outside of the camp as save the children we have worked very extensively in covering a lot of those programs and some of the examples that i can mention to you are some learning programs that support children to get back into the formal educational system so we are remedial education classes to specially for those children who have been who have dropped out of the schooling system for two three
6:07 pm
four and five years and who have been away from the said opportunity of education so our role. and as other organizations also have been doing is offer this opportunity for those children. in order to get them back into the stream of the formal educational system there are also other support programs that are being offered as you know. due to the economic situation of the families families find themselves forced to depend on their children so there's a challenge with child labor there's a challenge with early child marriage and to deal with that that means there needs to be different programs child protection programs that are embedded in all the other services and programs that we offer and those are also very expensive and very important programs that we work with and being offered for refugees specifically in disaster camp and also in the host communities there's one other
6:08 pm
aspect which is also as important which is the psycho social support all those children have been subjected to trauma traumatized many of them have lost. family member they've lost their homes they have changed the whole scene some of them haven't even seen their original homes are loved. their home towns. their families their parents have been subjected to trauma so we do offer also psychosocial support for the children and their families to help them cope with the situation and help them have a more wholesome life and a better prospect and future do any of them get to go on to what we call normal school you know it strikes me that so much of the great work you're doing is is about preparing them for school and helping with trauma when otherwise they would be getting a normal education and learning about math and science and history do they get any access to that. they do definitely the government of jordan has done and taken some
6:09 pm
very commendable steps as you know and the london conference and the other conferences that have taken place. up to fifty thousand of additional spots have been a veiled and made available for those children to be able to join up and join the formal educational system yes we know that today we have a big amount of children a big number of children that have not joined the educational system for the challenges that i mentioned to you and different and other different challenges as well and we are working with are all those challenges but yes there are some children who have been able to. join the stream of formal education but we are still challenge when the remaining number we know that the number now ninety thousand syrian children who have not joined the formal educational system and
6:10 pm
a lot of work needs to be done in order to work with the challenges and to be able to subdue those challenges it feels like this really could be a tipping point ronnie this is the next generation which walking about and they are not getting the education they should be and i'm just thinking of the knock on effect given these will be the adults of the future the leaders of the future is it's going to be tough for them. definitely definitely it's a huge challenge and. for this we keep reminding him we. are supporting as a part of the civil society the work of the government of jordan in order to reach this goal in order in order to help the situation however this is a situation that needs to the support of the international community this is not something easy and easy job in any way possible so we keep reminding in
6:11 pm
every way possible and calling on the international community to take the needed steps in to rise up to and give the need to support so we would be able altogether to make the need to change and to give those children really done necessary chance just to have a normal life. he's under chapelle to pick up the story has that how much traction is this going to online because i know it's back to school time at the moment and all i had to worry about you know backpacks and school lunches the things this is this is big stuff here sure and you know not enough people are talking about this people talking about their own families and sending their own kids to school but it is perhaps the perfect time to talk about this a school year has just started and the un refugee agency has started an online discussion using a hash tag left behind school age children are supposed to have two hundred days in the classroom each year but as cobol mentioned last year three and
6:12 pm
a half million didn't spend a single day at school now this one u.n. agency looks after six million refugee children and adolescents to make sure these kids don't get left behind you can check out their website u.n.h.c.r. dot org to learn more about the individual stories behind some of these statistics scott craig is a spokesman for the u.n.h.c.r. he told me about the need for public support. the situation with people living in low income countries is particularly. nine percent refugee children living in countries were able to attend say. so what we say is obviously much. to allow refugee kids to live up to the same hopes dreams the same ratio as number of children but the bottom line message is if you are a refugee you are five times less likely than you used to go to school and that's something we all need to work hard to change now this isn't just
6:13 pm
a problem in the middle east more than half of the world's out of school refugee children are in just seven countries chad the democratic republic of congo ethiopia kenya pakistan in addition to lebanon and turkey the u.n.h.c.r. has partnered with education above all based here in cats are to provide primary education to hundreds of thousands of refugee children through its program educate a child dr mary joy. is executive director of educate a child who what's up to us her reaction to the report. along. education and. trying to do with. find ways to find the children. so that they can see if you are with us one that we face is insufficient resources and we. are trying to come up with find a way to fund these that will help these children. thank you dr pigg
6:14 pm
ozy there are lots of great organizations out there working in camps and urban areas providing education and programming to refugee children the international rescue committee for example is working with sesame street to develop early childhood programs for syrian refugees and as scott mentioned there has been good news this past year and roman has risen thanks to investments made in education for syrian refugees and for kids who arrive in europe education is compulsory of course it takes support from governments and individuals to help them reach their goals so think about helping out if you've had experience working with an organization that's working with refugee children to get in touch with us share your story we're always happy to spotlight organizations that are doing good work around the world you can tweet me directly i'm at endor chapelle or disease that has tagged a.j. news grid and will see it center and little bit of trivia craig you saw in that report used to work here at al-jazeera he was a program editor with us it's great to see him doing it with the united nations now just a few of your comments coming through just before we hit the brake lots of people
6:15 pm
talking about ranges but actually it's the sound of story which seems to got people talking about the accusation of war crimes in yemen paper on twitter heloise i support the h.r. so you think means that tied up in human rights watch in this regard saudis need to be investigated also a comment here from well actually i don't know who this from this is on what's that to put your name in there as well so i can say hello to you whoever sent this one as long as the u.s. stands with the saudis they will and can continue with brazen impunity to commit war crimes genocide in. crimes against humanity people speaking a lot about yemen and one last comment i've got this is about education from chen we on facebook hi jan we all wonder why the world powers in the international community only come in when it's too late this is a generation disappearing in our time and every life matters and that's the point we were making with a guest from save the children that this is potentially education was at least the last generations and the coming out of syria i keep the comments coming in. and
6:16 pm
coming up on the grid you going to see. on the cover of fashion magazines but if you come from that's an advice but live stream if you want you there and also ahead in the caribbean the come after the storm but wow what a big cleanup is beginning the latest on what was. hello and welcome back well start off with a chart for the levant and western parts of asia and every time i show this chart i say the same thing namely the temperatures across parts of southern iraq into kuwait and probably southern iran away above what they should be it's been a very long hot summer in this area and certainly for kuwait temperatures are going to remain very high as we head through into thursday thereafter i think would be a drop of about five degrees for the following few days and maybe that's a sign that summer is over around the eastern side the mediterranean we're looking
6:17 pm
at fine conditions with thirty one there in beirut here in the arabian peninsula it is much as we'd expect with quite conditions around the gulf and therefore humid temperatures of forty dryer heat across the other side potentially forty five as a high in mecca so head on through into thursday a slight drop in temperatures to forty one but still fine heading into southern portions of africa we've got variableness of cloud affecting cape town but otherwise it should be dry of a much the region is looking pretty fine lots of sunshine when took there in the movie are coming in with temperatures of thirty three degrees celsius for the north that's where all the rain is missing some significant clouds across a sudan the center of the republic and towards cameroon that's expected into the forecast lagos in nigeria could see one or two showers further west also seen some heavy rain in parts of west africa.
6:18 pm
the end . of. the headline from al jazeera dot com and what's trending as well me and there were hinge it all night one two for the most read stories on the website and on the sort
6:19 pm
of what's trending now we have as i've pointed out many times in-depth coverage of the bridge and whites have also because the gulf crisis at number three that i did stop that's a bad end of the mind and we've got a special edition of rick's my wedding stay at fifteen hundred g.m.t. looking at one hundred days since the gulf crisis began bettas what's trending right now at all to see what the. north korea has rejected the latest united nations sanctions condemning the measures and saying the u.s. has fired up for a confrontation the security council unanimously approved sanctions on monday including restricting oil imports and a ban on textile exports kathy novak with more from salt. this was the result the u.s. ambassador to the u.n. wanted even though nikki haley had to weaken the resolution to get it a unanimous vote to punish north korea for its latest nuclear bomb test today the security council has acted in
6:20 pm
a different way today we're attempting to take the future of the north korean nuclear program out of the hands of its outlaw regime. at a u.n. sponsored conference on disarmament in geneva north korea's ambassador said his country also known as the d.p. r. k. condemned the sanctions in the strongest terms the d.p. r. k. is ready to use any form of art to meet me. the forthcoming measures by d.p. r. k. will make the u.s. cell phone the creates pain it's never experienced in its history before the vote in new york celebrations in pyongyang for the scientists developing the north's nuclear bomb and missile technology you wanted to. the recent hydrogen bomb test which we conducted was the beacon of our great light demonstrating death to the u.s. and confidence of victory to the north koreans. the u.s.
6:21 pm
and its allies hope the added pressure on north korea's economy will force the government to stop its nuclear and missile testing and return to the negotiating table. and. it is important to put in our present a level of pressure on north korea to make a change its policies. cunny gyptian way north korea should realize on its own that its reckless challenge against international peace would only result in more powerful sanctions from the international community. but the approved sanctions are not as stringent as those proposed in an earlier draft u.s. resolution obtained by al jazeera the original draft included a total ban of sale of oil petroleum and gas to north korea that was changed to some restrictions on sales it also had included a total ban on hiring and paying workers from north korea a measure that would have mainly affected china the original version also called
6:22 pm
for a travel ban and assets for use on the north korean leader kim jong un and freezing the finances of north korea's national airline choreo air the watered down version was a resolution china and russia could support sending a unified message from the international community. the question now is what north korea will do next south korea's defense ministry says it's closely monitoring activity at the north's nuclear research center which is ready for another test at any time the government here also says the north could be preparing for another missile launch kathy novak al jazeera. we've also got under thomas reporting from seoul at the moment he's been getting a sense of how people there in the south korean capital feel about the threat from the north. the drama of the united nations in new york here on the streets of something like carries on as usual in a big move and six and see all the commuters making their way back when people here feel that the u.n.
6:23 pm
resolution was necessary but i don't expect it to be particularly if they expect another test either a nuclear test or missile test by the north in coming days or weeks what has changed and what these some consider to some extent is don't trump and he's unpredictable and people that know you that they have been threats of destruction by the north for many decades now but it hasn't happened but it would be a little trump to watch someone preemptive attack on north korea because he is concerned of course about a nuclear strike on us and say i'm not going to provide an attack with conventional weapons or otherwise on this city my job and i said that there is an arab resignation yeah there's not much people here feel they can do about it you don't easily document the city of ten million people and it doesn't feel imminent so at the moment there's no suggestion about i won't let a situation like carries on pretty much back in time as you know. talking more
6:24 pm
about this with joining us from washington d.c. now hi patty this in short was not what the united states wanted not as tough as they wanted so how have they then backed it up since the vote did go through. well you know this is really become a pretty typical pattern for the trump administration when it comes to the issue of north korea first they talk tough and china then they go back and they make threats against china say try to do it enough and they praise china and we saw that again today this is the president's done this and now we're seeing from his treasury secretary steve minutia and he was just at a conference and he said basically praise china again in one statement saying that they agree to historic sanctions on north korea but then he went on to make this threat and listen to this because this is a very serious threat he says if china doesn't enforce these sanctions they will cut off beijing from the international monetary system basically cut him off from u.s. banks that would have huge repercussions for the chinese economy in the global economy
6:25 pm
and it is a very stark threat now would they actually be willing to do that we haven't seen any action on that save some minor sanctions on chinese banks but they haven't really pulled the trigger so to speak on the bigger sanctions which would have again huge consequences but we see this the president goes back to believing everything falls back on trade and he said that he would cut off trade with every country doesn't stop doing business with north korea economists say that would take about four percent of the gross domestic product out of the united states just to put that in perspective the global recession took less than one percent so it's a big threat to make not it at all clear that they'd be willing to follow it up how does the reaction from korea go down there and washington's of talking about big statements that's what north korea makes as well direct threats as well towards the united states. well you know and this is the thing we see when ever there is a test we see the president there and to us statements or his favorite medium tweets made
6:26 pm
a statement after one of the missile tests say that north korea is facing fire and fury if it doesn't change course there's a hearing on capitol hill just to give you a sense this is a bit of a partisan issue although both sides say that more sanctions are necessary one democratic senator our congressman just said he promised fire and fury what we've seen is fecklessness and failure so it is a partisan issue here in washington thank you patty good to talk to pedicle hines in washington d.c. for us. so the other thing we wanted to do here was have a look at the history of sanctions because the security council's been imposed on north korea for so long now and yet still pyongyang managed to build missiles and nuclear devices so you wonder how much did they work this is when the first one to happen two thousand and six following north korea's first nuclear test limits were placed on items which might have helped the nuclear program and also military items we're talking aircraft helicopters tanks that sort of thing two thousand and nine is the next one the security council expresses its grave concern after north
6:27 pm
korea's second nuclear test and it expanded the sanctions to include most imports then again twenty thirty more sanctions after north korea launched this time a satellite and so officials and organizations which were linked to the space program had their assets frozen and again that you know most sanctions from the u.n. after the first nuclear test which happened under the new leader kim jong un brings us up to the present day or at least last year two thousand and sixteen nuclear tests to nuclear test prompted two more sets of u.n. sanctions well as you can see joining us is scott snyder now from washington d.c. he's a senior fellow for korea studies director of the program on u.s. korea policy at the council on foreign relations quite a title you've got there nice of you to join us what is your view on sanctions then because i think what we've tried to highlight there is that years and years and years of sanctions didn't stop anything from happening. well sanctions are
6:28 pm
necessary as a way of trying to increase pressure on north korea but they're never going to be sufficient by themselves and one of the challenges that i think that is embedded in the narrative about the u.n. security council resolutions is that north korea also pursues sanctions evasion measures as a way of trying to continue to have access to the international financial community and so in fact the u.n. security council panel of experts has compiled the set of reports pursuant to the sanctions that you listed over the course of the past few years and it's initially provides a road map for how north korea has tried to evade sanctions in order to maintain its access and procurement of items that it needs for its programs that i mean regardless of evading sanction issue in the first place that the sanctions aren't quote unquote toughen off or can't be tough enough because as we say it had to be watered down to avoid the veto in the security council. well that's right i mean
6:29 pm
basically north korea lives in the space created by geo political differences between china and the united states and the united states wants to use sanctions in order to pressure north korea even at risk of instability in the direction of denuclearization china is never going to be willing to risk north korean stability in order to achieve denuclearization and so there's that gap that i think has been exposed once again in the latest debate over whether or not to amp or oil or completely cut off oil supplies to the river it sort of had a couple of comments coming through from our viewers watching on our live stream that sent in these by whatsapp someone's actually said here north korea issue reminds me of animal farm other countries can have nuclear power west out of the not which leads into a question i've had from someone who wants to know why they were nice sanctions against developed nations with nuclear power does it simply come down to how much
6:30 pm
hostility you show with the with the threat of those weapons. well the mean framework that is in question here is really related to the nuclear nonproliferation treaty. and essentially the nuclear nonproliferation treaty does have the category of nuclear haves and nuclear have nots what's unique about north korea is it is signed on to the nucular non-plussed version treaty as a have not and that it exited the treaty and has pursued nuclear weapons so for that reason i think it's particularly difficult for the united states to be willing to accept. we have a country that started out in the treaty as i have not and has exhibited this dogged pursuit of nuclear capabilities for its own ends in violation of the international framework scots not that we thank you for your time and for us on
6:31 pm
throwing our viewers' questions directly really appreciate that. here are some of her thoughts of course she's out state and defense department correspondent in washington she wrote this a few months ago on whether sanctions are really the way to go and frankly it looks like she's been proven right from the reading i've done on this well with the rate at how to calhoun on twitter and you will find this it's a reporter's notebook search for north korea sanctions and look for patty's name there as well to find bad so here we are at the life will having a look at what's coming in prime minister netanyahu speaking it looks like in argentina at the moment that's taking up all the live screens from reuters and the associated press ongoing news conference there looks like in argentina anyway let's go to it and there she is in london more international news from c. iraq's parliament has voted to reject this month's referendum on independence by its semi autonomous kurdish region parliament also authorized the prime minister to
6:32 pm
take all measures to preserve iraq's unity neighboring turkey and iran are also opposed to filming it could destabilize an already volatile region campaigning is already underway for the separatist poll on september the twenty fifth which is nonbinding iran can has more from erbil the capital of iraq occurred a stone. well we were all expecting baghdad to say no to the referendum promise to hide a body has been very clear he says he doesn't want this referendum to go ahead so this vote was expected by the baghdad parliament however the kurds members of that palm and they walked out of that vote so they didn't take part in the vote allowing the arab m.p.'s to vote and say no to the referendum so me who is the speaker of the house says this means that the baghdad parliament let's now really negotiate with the kurds for a settlement to this issue president masoud barzani all of the chaos has been very
6:33 pm
clear he wants this to go ahead this referendum to go ahead it's an interesting constitutional dilemma now though because back out of kurds are part of that it means that if they don't reconvene their own kurdish problem and somewhere around the fifteenth to take a vote on whether the referendum should go ahead on the twenty fifth fixedly puts them in challenge with the decision made by the baghdad polman so now all eyes are on the kurdistan regional government they need to reconvene polman they need to say that they want the referendum to go ahead if they don't do that then they're in violation of that decision made by the iraqi parliament now let's see what happens there all political factions here in the iraqi kurdish region they say they don't want the referendum to go ahead there is this campaign is called no for now meaning that they want the referendum to go ahead they will vote for an independent kurdistan but not right now they say that the kurdish regional politics and all the
6:34 pm
political parties need to come together so really what we're saying is a decision that we are always going to expect the baghdad parliament to say no however we are now seeing a political constitutional dilemma for the kurds they need to reconvene their palm and. demonstrations and strikes are being held across france in protest against president emanuel plans for labor reforms. riot police have fought with demonstrators at the edge of the protest in central paris critics say the reforms will destroy hard won protections for workers and argue that being pushed through by the president in an undemocratic way says the changes will encourage companies to create more jobs which will help cut the country's unemployment rate of almost ten percent paul brennan is at the demonstration in paris. labor reform was one of president manuel micron's key election promises and it is a promise he is determined to deliver on september it seems will be
6:35 pm
a showdown months here in france a showdown between the elisei the president's office and the unions the white house here on the streets in that tens of thousands. the policies the president hopes to push through include for example the ability of companies with fewer than twenty staff to be able to negotiate paying conditions directly with those staff instead of having to go to a central union negotiated board it seems like common sense to many but the unions see it as an unacceptable infringement on diminuendo of that builds up in the heart for ever so many of us the other thing is that the same shit today is one of the hardline unions and it is noticeable but two of the other large unions chose not to take part in this day of action so the support is split even among the unions that set up the language that the president has used he said that those people who are opposed to his reforms are lazy or cynical or extremists that kind of language
6:36 pm
doesn't tag and eyes many people even moderate people opposed to his plans so it looks like it will be a hard fought campaign by the president to get these measures through. that's it from. me thank you for that weekend storm. continues to claim lives and cause damage as it moves over the us state of georgia it's called flooding in coastal towns across georgia south carolina florida as well of course where it hit hardest atlanta's main airport which is the world's busiest has had to cancel hundreds of flights and about hoffa's florida still without power. well the french president is in the storm battered counter been emmanuelle mccrone has been briefed by disaster officials on the island of guadeloupe where aid efforts for being called. did the dutch french i haven't suffered serious damage from what was then. ten people down in the french part of the island and in the nearby island of st but
6:37 pm
. before hitting the us in the cut a part of the path of destruction across the caribbean as we know john heilemann has been visiting a shelter on the island of antigua. this is just one of the shelters set up to a temporary house and feed the people of the caribbean island. the whole population about one thousand six hundred people have to be evacuated after hurricane. here to the neighboring island and many of those people have lost everything they've left their house they've left their livelihoods they've left. behind them they haven't been back to see what's left it's no house. to house goodness. no beds no having a passport when everything when. they are.
6:38 pm
you. know. team in. level. as you can see there's lots of clothes. and also food coming in from the government says it's going to take a lot more than to restore bob you to something approaching normality they're saying that about two hundred million dollars is needed a months of work no government would have enough resources to deal with a situation like this when it happens and we we have to depend on the regional and international agencies to assist them because as you know as the prime minister said it's the cost of this is the region of two hundred million u.s. dollars that's a half a billion dollars just chatting to people here this point the shock of everything they've just gone through they're keeping their spirits up there's people playing.
6:39 pm
children playing. outside but they're also really waiting to hear what's the next step what can they do how can they try to get back to the belongings the houses and the jobs for livelihoods. they left behind a power law. we're going to head to south america now with andrew when we cover venezuela protests a lot and it's always pretty much always bad news for president maduro and now he gets a little bit of a boost you know so much criticism on twitter in particular but today we noticed it's been a good day for him online at least for the first time in a long time we're seeing a pro-government conversation trending on twitter we decided to take a look at the hash tag behind this translates to venezuela breaks the siege now that hash tag has been shared tens of thousands of times to congratulate the government for its latest achievement saying that the country is turning a tide and now president maduro just visited algeria where he discussed commercial ties and solutions for the oil crisis the country's facing this user tweeted some
6:40 pm
of the photos from that visit and said that leaders of oil countries unite for a fair price venezuela raises its voice for justice the president himself also contributing on twitter posting that the trip was a success and that he was able to consolidate some of the solid relationships that the country has others have used the hash tag to the ship that i mentioned to express their pride for the way that the country was able to help its neighbors who were affected by the hurricanes while others are really excited about some comments that the foreign minister made basically accusing the united nations of lying about the human rights abuses in the country but we noticed something was a bit fishy here the hash tag was trending in venezuela but many of the top contributors to the conversation are either government or pro-government accounts who say they work for a communication battle we kept looking into this and most of them most of the tweets are from accounts like this that look like bots now this particular account see here only has eight followers but it's one of the top contributors to the
6:41 pm
