5:34 pm
people here identified by aid agencies as being at high risk from the elements which means that for her and many other ranger refugees things are beginning to change for the better xabi i'm on to tells me many of the areas were him to refugee settled in this sprawling campsite are prone to natural disasters so today we've had relocations the very families who are living in areas that are higher risk of landslides and flooding and we've really had a been to sides here and the camp on safer ground where they can be better protected in this extension to the camp it's a race against time these days the construction is constant. force the various family at last some relief first meal in their new dwelling it may not look like much but for them right now it makes all the difference in the world. i have a damaging joins us now from cox's bazar hi there mohammed when you do your
5:35 pm
storytelling when you report it's always through the eyes of the refugees the displaced people looking at your twitter feed right now gone. refugee this is something that is working well we will see later on al-jazeera news but what's the story why she important. well it's really fascinating and quite sad girls are is is a woman who's in her ninety's he doesn't know her her exact age which is quite common with her interrupt you g.'s of that generation but she has fled me and more three times three separate times in her life because of the persecution faced by. and the first time was in one thousand nine hundred seventy eight and the second time was in one thousand nine hundred one and then two thousand and seventeen the last great exodus that we've been covering out for us are at once now she's brought with her extended family so in this one hot in could have
5:36 pm
a long camp which is the largest refugee settlement in the world close to one million or interrupt you g.'s here in cox's bazaar in this sprawling makeshift settlement there are four generations of her family there is her there is her son his name is ali ahmed there is for her granddaughter her grandson in law and her great grandchildren as well so it was really fascinating to get to speak with him today we spent several hours. out basically where they are in the area of their camp today and they were telling us about how miserable it had been for him in the last in the last several years and you know her son had also fled three times and he talked about what that was like it and her grandchildren talked about it was like and you know this is a family that really i believe their experience mirrors the experience of so many other wrote hinges this is a group that isn't just the largest group of stateless people in the world it's
5:37 pm
also one of the world's most persecuted minority and we need to remember that and so when i found out about this family we worked hard to try to get this story done and we're going to be writing editing the next couple of days hope to get it on hikes week but we want to showcase the absolute people to watch that story i think pulling a reporting on we have questions for you if you. present well what thoughts on the government to how. well if you speak to aid workers and u.n. officials it doesn't seem like they're taking any steps at all and i've never been to me any more but i will say that you know this past week here in cox's bazar just a few days ago you had the united nations secretary general antonio the terrorists he was here you were at the united nations high commissioner for refugees illegal grandia the president of the world bank they were here to try to raise awareness about the plight of the or into the mass suffering and trauma that they've
5:38 pm
experienced and that the united nations secretary general you know he came right out and said that he's really never seen anything on this scale before in his life and he said that the government of myanmar needs to do much more now they have been these memos of understanding that have been signed between the government of myanmar and the united nations to try to begin a repeat tree a she crosses so that grow into refugees can go back to me anymore but this is at best problematic because details of that middle understanding leaked and it seemed as though it did not refer to the group as for in jet the did not clarify if they would get citizenship rights and so in the past week in speaking to a lot of refugees here were quite concerned about it they say first and foremost that you know wrote hinges should be involved in any discussions about their group their population and have that furthermore all the others that i was speaking with this week say that they don't believe that me and maher serious this is
5:39 pm
a population that would love to be able to go back home but they believe that they are in danger they don't believe that they will get citizenship and they don't think that the government of myanmar has done anything to demonstrate that they are serious about accepting and accepted to let them come back and to give them the rights that they say they deserve my will of the moment one quarter i want to show it from will instagram account and it's a moment when people are learning the strength at the same u.n. meeting going on i know said the president of the well banking fall. un refugee for the u.n. i want more from him of you catch up with people i don't want security to hold just citizenship what also we're hearing that they want white rabbit they want to model that they have. look i don't want to hand-feed mean they they want their rights i mean this is a this is a group of people that has suffered the kind of atrocities that it's hard to even imagine i mean when i came here last october for the first time and started
5:40 pm
speaking to him to refugees about what they suffer what what they had been exposed to and the abuses that and brought against them by the memoir military i couldn't process it just it's almost unfathomable so on the one hand you have a group of people that want to be safe they want to live their lives but on the other hand this is a group of people that's also stateless they want citizenship they do not have citizenship in in me anymore they would love to be able to go back that they believe that they are in danger and they feel as though they've been marginalized from the process they feel that there are these international bodies that are talking about them and talking about protecting them but they are not so much in that process themselves and so a lot of the a lot of the people that i was speaking to this week have said there's no way that they're going to go back war unless they are guaranteed citizenship rights which
5:41 pm
they've not at the moment the final practical which is the way that. you can kill part. cox these are for hours it's tapered off a bit in the last twenty minutes or so but. when it rains like this or really increases the sense of anxiety here about what could happen and you know this is an area that is it's prone to natural disasters and so the more sustained the rain is the more fear there is that there could be more landslides more flooding. how much of a wife must that be that the something i noticed is different this time that michelle to us there is building going on but with the monsoon coming just isn't moving full how much how all the refugees going to fact. there's a huge amount of concern about this i mean look i should say that this is the last time i was here the improvement that has been made to the infrastructure of this huge sprawling camp i mean it's amazing no doubt about it it's shocking i did not
5:42 pm
realize there had been so much improvement to the infrastructure of the camp and that so much building was going on and you know aid agencies and also we must say on the dishy officials and government of bangladesh they've really been trying to relocate tens of thousands of ranger a few g.'s that are most vulnerable in the areas that are most prone to natural disasters to other areas of the camps but that's not enough and even though there are so much good intention and even though the world bank pledged this week around five hundred million dollars to the government of bangladesh to ensure help for the row hinge up. this is monsoon season the aid agencies have been saying for months that it's critical that stuff be done so they are protected the rains are coming and their own rable and there have been sustained rains ask a couple of days and there's a lot of worry right now there could be a lot more landslides that there could be a lot more flooding. as
5:43 pm
a senior correspondent to al jazeera english he will see his reporting on our news coverage in the next couple of days thanks monnet and now we have to denmark and a controversial set of laws targeting communities of immigrants from no western countries have a look at this video by colleagues at us. what
5:44 pm
on linen. meetings committee some mean looking some people in the kitchen. want to see some pictures this is a young lady out playing outdoors we have a woman swinging in the park this final scene i want to show you is the outside of a store that specializes in what is clothing and he jabs all of the scenes denmark all of these areas being classified as ghettos but do they look like ghettos to you and they're also impacted by new legislation set out by the current one party in denmark to explain what is going on we have macau addison he's a journalist at the national newspaper either macau can you explain to us what is
5:45 pm
going on here with these new laws which seem to target particular parts of denmark . yes sadly it's. twofold first of all the government would like to win the coming elections next year and cracking down on. lack of immigration is certainly one of the things which endangered politics has been consistent throughout the last couple of elections and furthermore why i think there are. real creedence about the lack of employment and the lack of ability to speak and my definition in the current relevant areas which are targets in the i mentioned the word ghetto and it's something that malema who do want also tweeted to us about let me show you a tweet and she says the word has a lot of things conception it alludes to an up and space characterized by the criminalization and stigmatized nation of the people who live in these spaces is this wilson translation or politicians in denmark actually using the word ghetto.
5:46 pm
oh my gosh suddenly using the same it has perhaps some of the same kind of patients it would have in most countries but perhaps you're also talking about wealth rich people ghettos in the northern suburbs. so i mean it's not just talking about crash drawing comparisons to the jewish jewish ghettos of the second world war some would say that there is there is a connection and furthermore it's deliberate that you want to use language to underscore the severity of the situation that perhaps some would say also to stigmatize the people living there would. be a phobia going on i think. i think most would say that they would have to become ongoing use i mean this is not currently we have the danish social
5:47 pm
democrats which i had to support watching this legislation and also much more aligned with the danish right in with box with what's happening to watch integration and immigration in denmark so i think that there is a broad majority of the danish population which is supporting this legislation i think that they can get. what the highlights. stand now. well i think that the. primary stance on it is that you have you have pretty much defined some areas. which are singled out for a particular treatment i mean you have you as we saw in the video you mentioned we are saying that it's becoming mandatory to place children younger than the age of six in the nursery sent in by problems i'm not saying get the video that you mentioned said that they were being separated from their parents actually what
5:48 pm
happened is that people are losing government subsidies of up to two hundred dollars per month if they refuse to comply with the logistician but of course it's quite effective measure but saying that you have an area where people have to develop. legal is different legal treatment which is also the case in regard to just meant if you commit crimes with so-called natural areas you will also receive substantially punishment than you would otherwise and the rest of them are and that's something which is. in danger context noble some might say. on twitter we can discuss the methods. areas when moving. people from public schools. or less average population so that those in favor of this new kind of legislation but how are the people that was reacting this is more. the carrot and stick excuse me i think. that's exactly
5:49 pm
it certainly is no sticks and tired and i think if you look through the end of initiatives and in this package that two twenty two initiatives which are being combined in this legislation it is more stick and carrot i think that most people living in these areas would see them as somewhat unfair because as in practice it is that this initial discussion or areas. create crime unemployment and also if so i mean it is an indirect way of saying people in part because of ethnicity of course living in the same area ethnic gangs living in the same areas will also be submitted to the same kind of like the station in practice and also that is probably the intention of course that. i give them up and people who are unemployed and therefore perhaps for a large. not seen as being able to convey danish values and learn the
5:50 pm
language as i was sitting this is not the last we will hear about a new kind of legislation to understand thank you so much for guiding us through it down the sink. thank you. so finally we go to mosul in iraq where residents will sing the one of the when my so was given out by government forces. who we thought just a little bit earlier felt this report before having to call this bizarre. morsel may be clear of iceland. but reminders of the group's reign are everywhere. not just of the group's atrocities but also the brutal fighting it took to topple them. here streets are still in. and buildings are destroyed. for the former residents who were lucky enough to escape isis where the violence and inhumanity things remain difficult strewn about are symbols of suffering.
5:51 pm
of youth stopped dead in its tracks of a displacement crisis that is nowhere near over. well the situation remains dire there are signs of hope some philanthropists and contractors are promising to restore this city. still no one expects this will be easy attempting restoration and renewal amid so much despair so how much progress has been made exploring these questions with us now we have alley. he is a professor of english at the university of mosul how the alley what i love about what you're doing is not only are you professor but you take photographs and it takes us inside of mosul we kind of get a viewpoint that you would share that you would talk to that you would say have a look at the volume of destruction is relatively small over forty families are
5:52 pm
back here electricity and water all the way back all they need is a school and the recipe will be back to that is more than fascinating now this still looks like there's a lot of work to be done but that was quite a positive update with that photograph how will things in mosul right now. well we have just finished the second post ice's academy here so thinks might be a little bit dark for some but when there is darkness there is light as well. the the academic year is not easy at all. we went on campus for the first time and you can never wall without looking for a lot i says have left behind but now things are different a year and two deliberation and things are different that not only of b. level of service is the local and the central government are offering to people
5:53 pm
that i'm talking about the people themselves the people are more than willing to restore lives exactly as it was before di even better i let me show you this comment here on twitter some alexandra i was on the stop the coalition. pyar tourist military compound accounts isis expecting iraqis to foot the bill for reconstruction that has to be some international support but it's a drop in the ocean are you feeling the outsiders are coming to help rebuild myself . yes and i can give some examples we have been receiving. at the level of the university we have been receiving tons of dogs of generators of ladder stubs but it's still the level of destruction and the volume of the things that really it's far beyond any imagination simply because what happened in mosul is that pretty much like what happened in world war two is pretty much like what
5:54 pm
happened. so we cannot expect it and it's never an easy task i'm looking here. can you point out to us the level of destruction but. the square looks nice but when you look into the distance along see how damaged. well you can say you can say that thirty percent of the building of the infrastructure of the has been leveled to the ground but b.p. is doing a lot is doing in fact is doing medicals the building in this photo is for the centralized library of university bia and b.p. is now removing the rubbles and as they say they are going on refurbishing it again this is an interesting comment from signing and some go as a general still based in iraq he says citizens of the one of the house since
5:55 pm
destroyed they don't care about the arches or history of the settle they just want to repeal the houses and go back instead of being displaced so they asked us ballots some of the beautiful parts of mosul that destroyed in the fighting and the battle and people needing to get back to walk. to think that we have a gravely interest in mosul that the first thing was the identity of the city as a multi-ethnic and multicultural market religious city and then the heritage that it all started with that issue when they when they had everything the beautiful why did the shrine serve the purpose of the shrines of the good people of the ancestors and then they ended it with didn't merit what happened in the you know the most was far much beyond any one could imagine. i want to say i told their side let me show our viewers stress this is from the none of our operations command center talking
5:56 pm
about the potential danger. my so right now have a less than. bottom review of the most important issue and most of us that we need to start rebuilding and give hope to the people or most of the people of mosul have no income whatsoever and this is a grave threat in the short term people can withstand two or three months without money patients has a threshold so allie that grave threat i believe is referencing i still where are they right now what impact do they have in almost all if anything at all it more you could never hear about them they are they are gone and hopefully fredricka. back to still the people are still afraid of the desert red because the desert is a quiet grass that quiet all bent other countries and it's still there are some accidents happening every now and then between also one character mosul and baghdad good there are some kidnappings and hostages and execution so there is still kind
5:57 pm
of added but there is an alteration to their presence in that area and they are absolutely is a professor of english at the university of mosul and also he is a very accomplished petaca if you want to see he's about got to at the root and you can see any time on twitter as well the time we have for today show thank you to all of i guess i'll be sure to keep an eye on al-jazeera dot com for more coverage of the stories i will see online take everybody. my .
5:58 pm
hard. every weekly news cycle brings a series of breaking stories out of the was more drunk than out on the boy told through the eyes of the world's journalists the images matter a lot international politics joined the listening post as we turn the cameras on the media and focus on how they report on the stories that matter the most. third if someone from the country who guides you who needs you to the story of the byline tells us who wrote the post on al-jazeera.
