10:49 pm
the real crisis a report alleging genocide in myanmar goes before the u.n. security council plus. i'm florence state malaysia where the demand for land development and biofuel is threatening not just forests but a way of life. more than fifty thousand people are being evacuated from their homes in myanmar after a dam burst at least one hundred villages have been flooded region and central. along with a major highway all part of this fire broke after heavy monsoon rains and water levels are expected to keep rising convoys of military trucks carrying boats are on their way but the army chief says the overflow overflow chattel cannot be controlled a senior meteorologist joining us for more on this now so it is the monsoon season
10:50 pm
there. how on you know how common is this much rain steph and the sort of flooding well we are right in the middle of the monsoon season at the moment as you say it runs from around about june to two september so we're in that now if we look at the graphics of course you can see that's the average rain you'd expect. every month so the worse months of rain weisel the best depending on how you see it are july and august in both of those two months you'd expect over four hundred millimeters of rain in the month that's an incredible amount of rain it is very very wet and then we're just at the end of august now so we're towards the end of the rainy season a lot of rain already on the ground the dam should be full so if something was going to go wrong with the dams it would happen now and you were saying earlier that there has been flooding this month the end of july in the beginning of august one hundred fifty thousand people were displaced in me and margy to flooding that was and coastal regions and me and mark and where this dam is i would say is just
10:51 pm
on the northern edge of that so probably they had more rain than usual as well which didn't help with the overloading of the dam or stuff that you very much for that. we're now moving on to other news but staying with myanmar international pressure is going to prosecute the country's military leaders for the genocide of the hinge of muslims the government as quoted and false allegations at least ten thousand were killed and around three quarters of a million fled during an army offensive which began a year ago the un secretary general said that suffered horrendous persecution as the security council debated mass killing and gang rape detailed by investigators mike hanna has more from the u.n. headquarters in new york. this meeting was before the release of the un report but it was the subject of discussion of many of the speakers in particular as the report held that the military leaders responsible for atrocities in wreck and state
10:52 pm
acted it said with genocidal intent the secretary general did not give any specific direction to the security council as to how it should proceed however it did say that the report must form the basis of its negotiations i believe these reports findings and recommendations these are of serious consideration by all relevant united nations bodies effective regional cooperation will be critical to ensure that the come to believe credible transparent impartial independent and comply with myanmar's obligations and the international law but the british ambassador indicated that no immediate action is imminent she said it's likely that the report must first go to formal debate within the human rights council which commissioned the report in the first place before the security council takes a decision this is a report by the fact finding mission it will go in september for formal debate in
10:53 pm
the human rights council and then we hope we will debate it or deal with it in some suitable way in the security council but many members of the security council insistent that action must be taken sooner rather than later strong words from the u.s. ambassador we are now all armed with the devastating eyewitness accounts of the rohingya which lead us to the following conclusions children they be women and men suffered unspeakable crimes the attacks were planned premeditated and coordinated. the perpetrator was the burmans military and security forces the whole world is watching what we will do next and if we will but one point of agreement that the security council must act in a united part of the issue the problem of china it is perceived as being
10:54 pm
against a muted action based on the un report earlier the chinese foreign ministry issued a statement saying that myanmar does not cope well with pressure. now millions of children around the world are beginning a new school here but the united nations refugee agency or u.n.h.c.r. is worried about the growing number of refugees who won't get anywhere near a classroom and they say the problem is getting a lot worse when last year four million refugees children didn't attend school that's half a million more than in twenty sixteen compared to ninety two percent globally only sixty one percent of refugee children attended primary school and as they get older the gap is growing with the two out of three children in primary never making it to secondary school with schools and eleven cater for hundreds of thousands of refugees and some teachers are having to work overtime just to ensure that everyone gets to class say in the hall the reports now from the bekaa valley. the school
10:55 pm
year starts in the next few days but according to the united nations up to three hundred thousand syrian children of school age will not be attending classes that has been the number of syrian refugee children who haven't been given an education among them these children they live in this camp in the big car valley many of them are born in lebanon all they know is a life in exile the life of a refugee. the united nations says it is doing its best to enroll the highest number of syrian refugee children as possible but it hasn't been easy the lebanese government for example is under a lot of strain its resources its infrastructure has been strained as a result of the influx of over a million syrian refugees into the country but three hundred thousand children do attend classes over three hundred fifty lebanese public schools operate double shifts shifts in the afternoon to accommodate these children but of course there
10:56 pm
aren't enough spaces to accommodate the remaining three hundred thousand syrian children of school age and it's not just that syrian refugee families have little choice but to send their children to work to be able to provide for the family so there's also a question of child labor they cannot afford to send their children to school and instead their children work and there's also the issue of transportation many parents here will tell you that we can't afford to pay for transportation to send our children to school even if there are places in school so a very very dire situation for syria's children. he is a senior education advisor for u.n. h.c.r. and she told us more about the future impact of millions of refugee children missing out on education. at this time of the year when you know across britain across the world families and children are preparing to go back to school and if we
10:57 pm
think about what is any parent's aspiration for their child every parent wants an education for their child so if you look at the implications of the current state where only twenty three percent of refugee youth are in enrolled in secondary school that's seventy seven percent are not enrolled in education and in five years time in ten years time what will become of those young people if they have not received an education hopefully many of them will go back to their countries and help to rebuild them but you do that they need the skills and the knowledge and the confidence and the leadership that education will give to them so that's why it's such an imperative for far more efforts to be made to make sure that all of these children get an education. and un run schools for palestinian refugees have been despite huge cuts and us a half a million students resumed coffers and gaza and the occupied west bank but the un body responsible for palestinian refugees says it only has enough money to keep the schools open until september the u.s.
10:58 pm
has already cut two hundred million dollars in aid at this here and there are reports that it considering ending all of that theft and force it has more from west of us and them. well under a is making good this wednesday on its pledge announced last week that it would open its schools in the occupied palestinian territories and in its other three areas of operation on time despite the huge financial pressure that it's been under this year after the united states decided to withdraw three hundred of the three hundred sixty five million dollars that it was to provided to the agency this is come in the light of a great deal of political pressure that's been applied to iraq and to the palestinians under the administration of donald trump and there's been reporting in the israeli press in recent days and israeli media that the united states intends to go further by restricting the definition of palestine refugees to only those who came out of what was then how a stein in one hundred forty eight before the creation of the state of israel's or
10:59 pm
restricting the number from more than five million to five hundred thousand and indeed permanently cutting off all u.s. funding for the agency the agency's head was at one of the schools reopening today in the occupied west bank he said that the un run mandate was not for sale the palestinian leadership have actually rejected this position which is being reported has yet to be formally confirmed by the united states it is something there that the israeli prime minister benjamin netanyahu has long argued for both the restriction of the definition of palestine refugees and also the disbandment of honor in. tiley well there are those in the israeli security establishment former military officers and the like who've been telling the israeli media that they're concerned about restricting or preventing iran from operating because of the security implications that could have done to get it provides education to some five hundred thousand palestinian children it provides food aid to many of the more
11:00 pm
than one million refugees inside gaza so there is no by no means a total acceptance of this plan in these really established went well that is something that the israeli prime minister benjamin netanyahu has long argued for still ahead on the bolton storm damage in puerto rico as the dominant admit how can maria killed many more than first address and. i'm missing you and that has been this way that we're filling your tank doesn't cost a thing but that is about to change. i know that we still got plenty of wet weather over the southern parts of china at the moment this region has been incredibly wes over the past few days this cluster of thunderstorms here in the southeast if the.
