1:00 pm
but of smugglers out of the us if you didn't own the theory is that all money this is returned to the. postcards automatically not transferred to the thousands. said to him he says that migrants are facing refugees are facing consequences that smugglers adult that's true and that's that's very true and i think there was my colleague. this esteemed that there is no to the station there is no it's very arbitrary detained of course. that's given a zation of just people trying to seek refuge fleeing countries of war by itself for me it's a big mistake. in terms of traffickers and smugglers it's particular as you know need be is now a problem for bicycle a tough time politically the law and order in force meant is not in place so and most of these things and the traffic going to is also so much going to be shit so
1:01 pm
the fact that there is no law and order to control that so if they're victims of more fall on the refugees and migrants i'm going to leave this summer and you abraham in any sally it with some order that was sent to sally on today from a man who is in detention right now i think it really focuses our minds on what is going on in libya have a listen. sane being dismissed eight straight from the day she is seen tearing through three we are like in this place like four hundred thousand refugees asking for your help most of us and we have like eight pregnant and more than two in children's and i mean underage even displaced no food no water we are not reach there for seven mins days they were out around us for three weeks we are asking for the world to help us again and again but no change until
1:02 pm
now please we need an evocation as much as you can and we are. asking the world for how but fortunately that's all the time we have for this conversation today but you can continue to follow sally's reporting on twitter at sallie h a y d now from libya we had to the koreas. she doctors. at the moment. south korean president
1:03 pm
jay n. has just finished a historic three day trip to pyongyang for talks with his north korean counterpart kim jong un visit is only the third for a sitting south korean president since a division of the korean peninsula and comes as nuclear disarmament negotiations between north korea and the u.s. have started to a halt so is the reapproach between the neighbors in danger or just getting started joining us to debrief istream on what happened when kim met kristin is the founder and international coordinator of women cross d.m.z. and jody town is a research and i don't understand managing editor at the stimson center hello ladies good to have you here it's a have you back again christine so where are we now in thames of the moods of the korean people how do you describe it. i mean it's extraordinary i received messages from my my allies my partners in south korea the women's peace
1:04 pm
organizations as well as north koreans especially you know including a friend that is a defector here in the united states and everybody is very poised they are inspired i mean i was moved to tears watching president moon address one hundred and fifty thousand north korean people who stood on their feet throughout the entire speech waving and cheering i think that we are in a new era for the korean peninsula and we have commitments from both leaders to not only remove the threat of nuclear weapons from korea but also. the threat of war and i think that their commitment to move forward in actionable ways from demanding the t.m.c. to setting up a reunion center for separated families just tangible things that are really moving progress between the two koreas christine there's someone who might agree with you on twitter this is my who says it is
1:05 pm
a breakthrough however they need to be given time the world wants north korea to quickly to nuclearize i guess they will do that in their own time and pace at least their opening jenny i'm wondering if you feel similarly do you see this as a breakthrough. i think it is a breakthrough in the into a korean relation ship and and the problem is is that there is now a lot of things on the agenda that will require cooperation from the united states in order to really move forward and make good on some of the promises that have been made and i think this is where we run into problems is that you know south korea is moving forward at a pace much faster than what the u.s. government is comfortable with and i think there's already some misinterpretations and misunderstandings of what happened at the summit as it relates to u.s. d.p. r. k. negotiations on denuclearization and these mystery steps gens are really going to cause problems in the future because it does create false expectations of what those next
1:06 pm
steps actually are and i think these are the things that really need to get hashed out now between the u.s. and and and north korea directly christine. well i think that north korea has signaled that they would dismantle two key sites one is the long range missile launch pad and then the other is the younger nuclear reactor which have long been the ire of washington d.c. but what we know is that north korea has said that that is contingent on progress made with the united states i mean you can see the images of libya and the political chaos that that country is in you see the situation what happened in iraq and now what happens with iran and north korea also has its own history to look at where eighty percent of the country was devastated by an indiscriminate u.s. bombing campaign so i think it's really crucial i think especially for americans
1:07 pm
who are watching the show is you're not going to see the denuclearization of north korea unless there is progress towards peace and that's why i think it's urgent right now to be advancing the conversation about a peace treaty and put it on the table. you know i got it and he may just push back a little bit and i think this is where we need to be very careful and we're christian matters is because what north korea did in that are clear reason is they did promise to commit to dismantle. the launch pad it so which is being used as not to let launches in the past but they did not commit to shutting down young guns that use that as an example and they basically reiterated that this is a process that can move forward and on an action for action basis and use shutting down young man as an example and the problem is is that you know secretary pompei iowa has already sort of claimed this as a victory of north korea committed to do this and that's simply not true and you
1:08 pm
know as much as it's great that there is renewed enthusiasm for negotiations going forward if we don't have a clear understanding of what has been committed in order to measure progress we're going to have a lot of frustrate. early on and so i think it needs to be we need to be very careful as to what has actually happened what's on the table what still needs to be negotiated before you know we get too far ahead of ourselves and people get really frustrated well i mean i don't disagree with that i just think that it's important to make the case that having face to face meetings and dialogue and actual diplomatic peace process is what is going to yield the breakthroughs that we see between north korea and south korea and unfortunately we don't know what state the united states is because we see many competing messages coming from the bolton camp or some from the more probing gauge went camp within the trumpet ministration and so i think that's where we have to really say that the policy of maximum pressure
1:09 pm
which has just been about punishing sanctions which have not obviously impacted the regime or stop north korea from advancing their nuclear weapons program has totally failed and what we need right now more than ever is supply and dialogue and meeting face to face and i my i think the majority of koreans around the world would say let's begin by declaring end to this war so that there could actually have some movement between the us perfect place to pause this conversation i hear what you're saying are you joining us well i think our community would agree we're going to pause this here for now though thank you to christine and jenny and our community for being with us on the stream. so when the queen as we head to london.
1:10 pm
it's absolutely not the case that everything in the museums african collections was founded on only to whatever phrase you want to use but obviously there are certain circumstances or certain events that happened. and set examples like that that influences where that material would come into the collection and in the same way today where there's a euphemism wouldn't have come into the collection in the same way now of course it's not just the bronzes that have ended up in western museums under questionable circumstances. the models and many more facts are at the center of often very nasty disputes between western museums and the country that they've been taken from today we're going to meet a woman who has come up with a novel way to confront the often uncomfortable stories behind some of the world's
1:11 pm
most prized exhibits alice proctor welcome to this story so excited to have you on after seeing your work i want to start with our community who love this topic mostly because they come from countries that want their artifacts back so this is one person coming out of nigeria and things that they have in their museums are better looted they should explain how they got them but they never do they just put them there with little or no details to say where they were looted from britain still has ninety nine point nine percent of the things that belong to my ancestors my own in exact scientific presented to there but how did you come up with this idea. so i've been writing these to us for the n.l. and when i started them they came from a place of frustration i had studied art history at university and i was surrounded by people all the time who worked in museums and art galleries but didn't necessarily want to have these conversations so i had
1:12 pm
a map background of museum education i had the information that i needed to do this work and i just started running the tours to see what would happen so when they first found it was secret the galleries had no idea that we were running them at all. i'm still not working for the museums i do this independently so it was a way of bringing the information that i had and appealing to an audience that i knew was there so these are uncomfortable our tours not not my description you are description of what is on an uncomfortable our tour give us a little show and tell we're going to show and you're going to tell. go right at a swim put on screen they go oh there we go ok so this is a painting of a man called william fielding this is in the collection of the national gallery fielding was one of the first british tourists to travel with the east india company in the sixteenth so this is at a time when britain is expanding its colonial power its creating trade networks
1:13 pm
that will become the routes to imperial control over india and large parts of south asia and fielding travels with the company as a tourist he goes and comes back and dresses up so this is kind of a seventeenth century cultural appropriation in the way that he's dressed in this painting he's wearing a combination of european clothing and the silk jacket and trousers that he's brought back to india with he has a son of an accompanying him in this painting we know that two savants travel from india back to england with fielding we don't know their names we don't know anything about them but one of them has been included in this painting presumably as part of an illustration of his well traveled. these connections in these influences that he is now performing back in britain so i want to share this thought from andrew who takes it from an interview with you andrew says she says
1:14 pm
there is always one side of the story that has been privileged over the other so this question is there are ongoing efforts to interact with people on the other side of the story and get to know how they feel being quote unquote robbed by europeans for many years i want to use that to pivot to a question for you alice and what do museum officials think of this that they ever talk to you about incorporating this into some of their own to yours. so there are certainly some institutions that are more receptive to this than others and to be clear there are plenty of museums that do we just possess communities to discuss the best way of displaying these objects and to begin negotiations to what repatriation most museums are doing now and most museums that i guide in don't actually work with me they make it very clear that i'm an authorized i don't participate in that at all i just want to make sure that people understand what you're doing you know you kind of it's kind of sneaky so you go into one of the old
1:15 pm
gus museums in the united kingdom in london and you have in your own seeing kurt tour that's going on that's not official i'm not telling people your your truth as you see it the sort of let's get down to basics the reality behind the pictures and colonialism and the empire etc so it just reminds me of a scene from the black panther. where the museum is you know going into you and then an artifact is taken out and you know that belongs to a condom and your kind of doing that i am but will not steal israel yet and i'm talking much more differently about colonial history. i try and use the space museum so create an area where we can have these conversations it's so much more powerful to talk about dispossession to talk about representation in front of the objects and to think through the ways that they've been manipulated by the institution the fact that they have multiple meanings to different people and every
1:16 pm
individual who comes into that space will see something different and we'll gauge that story in a different way so yeah they are essentially sneaky to us although the museums do know about me now obviously i'm a death we know about you now. so this cover we got in live from piano on you to return the ancestral artifacts they're worth millions so speaking of that tell us about one more those white cups that we dishonor scream about a minute ago what are those. so that is the white cup a shot at a high in the middle ampara and these are slightly trickier objects because they're an antique when they are quiet by the british so this cup dates from as you can see on the screen sixteen fifty seven and it's a quiet by the british suck at eight hundred fifty seven so some of your viewers might know that that's the date of what leiter referred to as the first indian war of independence or the subway rebellion depending what side you're on it's a moment of enormous conflict that transforms the history of the british in india
1:17 pm
and is one of the key moments that leads towards the end of the east india company aggregation all the. queen victoria as the empress of india ok so those cuts are acquired by someone working for the studio company in very very g.b. of circumstances and they come to that u.k. via his collection alley so again it's next summer i mean london i'm signing up for a secret tour at alice thank you so much look you're on my website on my laptop here and you will see alice's work on the whole website it's the exhibitionists dot org and our minor to our community if you have a story you'd like to see other stream us at a data stream. to . move.

1:25 pm

1:54 pm
is a very rapid explosive growth would be the labrat marine theme parks and a lot of these places do not have the expertise to be doing what they do. and inside these popular aquariums we find evidence of widespread neglect and abuse. i'm steve cho on this episode a one on one as we go behind the scenes of china's marine theme parks expose the dark side they don't want to see. this film. i think it's a very thick headed. what xander indulge in china. and the stands are until i center stage i don't. i and
1:55 pm
high flying building i love the crowd. i'm. all these shows have been common in western countries for decades in china aquariums are new and exotic. places where the growing middle class can get close to wild animals and entertain. but for the animals in china's marine theme parks insiders tell us pleasing the crowd have been told. by. your actions when the ones in. some. of. the letter and no one

ensure you mean tarbush or for all i bought was all i was there for. over two years one on one east investigated china's multibillion dollar aquarium industry. examining more than fifteen marine parks and interviewing more than a dozen insiders we uncovered widespread abuse. new. order tobis you go to ground. zero being worked at two of these koreans training seals and dolphins oh yes i've heard about one thing you want to use your judgment calls or just all clear just how close a shot was here. and in chickens or is a whole. change. generation deafens how their shells were for sure though you'll be off in a fashion all the other lot you just don't remember how. rather than happy
1:57 pm
cooperative animals being says he found them often sick and distressed when they weren't performing he was ordered to lock seals in tiny cages and dolphins that would normally swim hundreds of kilometers a day in the wild were constrained in tiny tanks do you turn around don't want to for him a chance harnesses don't you know the war may have to answer you can how to tell you how often i shall open your program over time the wood and patricia you told your children to also tell it to you. to call you for her truth and he will the war go to her attention that will talk alone because she got to come up higher than a ocean before we come back up and running with the wrong approach of being poor boy. our staff tell us beating them with sticks is common practice and that's not all being says the performances are physically punishable. you tell your slit
1:58 pm
although you are you a child as i had time to do for you by our time i mean you were well told are you sure you are strictly clear all of the real trial knows how much better no push you watch or was taught or shows will surely see ya as his childish truth to it was new to me what turns you into a top. and a pretty miserable death. at one aquarium our investigation found a freezer full of carcasses. a secretly recorded conversation with the marine parts that reveals how he died. knowing this. for a minute. or. the vet goes further ask him to keep. high rates of premature deaths under wraps we're
1:59 pm
going on. more secretly recorded footage reveals six turtles unfed and dumped in bins. we also discover arctic fox is on display in obvious distress. but. this man will call levy was responsible for feeding and caring for animals at a major marine park. the degree of suffering he discovered shocked him. and she went home. for. the little woman. was one. home.

court and common for the bushes i'm sure. she means business for you says. high court. record all. trainer being confirms what lee found and blames the blindness not only on the lack of natural light but on the aquarium shows themselves. want to. rule no one. also here. to for a walk sure. told her all that small children taught to which we have. any say is the marine parks failed to provide anything close to adequate care for their animals. have to be able to submerge and these are these guys seem to be sitting on
2:02 pm
the bottom of the tank and they're halfway out of the water. we show these images today only rose one of the world's most well known marine mammal scientists and. they're swimming in their own feces. that looks like it's like a concentration camp. they're being cruel to these animals to keep them. from and that's just cruel and it would meet the standards and. or europe. but in china there are no national laws against mistreating animals. for decades naomi's documented the treatment of captive animals around the world she and other animal welfare activists have business. dozens of facilities in china and say they've never seen such bad conditions. several of the facilities that i visited were very young they were only five six seven years old. and i was
2:03 pm
surprised because they looked like they were thirty or forty years old both in the terms of their design was very old fashioned small circle in a circular tanks which just aren't it's not done anymore. and they were just degrading they were. rusting they were chipping they were crumbling. concrete was actually crumbling in a six year old facility. and their crumbling infrastructure is having a devastating impact on the health of animals. in one case dolphins and bellew girls playing with and ingesting paint and other debris. when they start doing this sort of. repetitive behavior with a found object which is a in this case a paint chip which could be toxic. and is indicative of failed husbandry
2:04 pm
i mean how many times are they eating paint chips a day. it doesn't have to be a particularly toxic pain for that to become an issue. yes. through well our investigation we found an industry that publicly appears to care for animals. i. was. but in private treats them very differently. than the. sons are born from sins of parkland. and from a member of. and a lot of people want to share of these profits. the number of aquariums being built is growing astronomically a few years ago there are only
2:05 pm
a handful of these places in china today there are more than sixty multimillion dollar marine theme parks with about a dozen more being built. nowhere else on the planet have so many marine animals been taken from the wire and put on display. aquariums here each boast of having on average twenty thousand species of marine learning. even moles are getting into the business workers tell us the treatment there is even worse. this is a never ending cycle. for the animals in the wild where they are just being. taken inside and often their natural lesions put into boxes in china and they die. so this is just a one way conveyor belt. and it ends into the other and this is supposed to be
2:06 pm
entertaining. we asked the aquarium as we investigated and the government ministries supervising them to respond to our findings of mistreatment they all declined. to find out how the parks source their animals we put on hidden cameras and meet a key industry adviser he's helped many aquariums acquire their marine mammals from around the world. for you to be to know how to shoot video that we would like to make up to you. feel you have time to do that and that's how they did that then went on to the fucking. we've told them we're developers looking to set up a marine park goes to the heart of what. well you know if i go. because in human history i'll tell. you it's really.
2:07 pm
good if you're going to seek help i know yeah your money because those. who have it down. the road that goes for like this. after buying the animals consultant advises us that to get them into china we will have to bribe quarantine officers pessimistically you know you from what. he did to you to go with them i think if you think. that's how you might have made it to the public this is this is just. an example that. while there seems to be no problem buying the animal trainers seen another media trade he warns us to avoid the feelings of other marine parks in china or. we're going to work so . i'm going. to be off a device that we go. please on the. bum on the city to. go
2:08 pm
with this. person you know what he was going to. do that what we have done. that this will be a good time he just has a case he makes money says there was a cut in the. studio with us because the marine parks viewed their animals as disposable he says many don't invest in skilled staff will get out in the. town and we'll shout what want to go could. leave that to me and. all woman i'm sure you would you want to leave. former trainer being confirms marine park workers don't need much experience to his surprise this even included. the vents. to all your column for the different. good. tool for a shoe move you're. too young to be on the international mission therefore you
2:09 pm
don't want to go to for india. to answer to how much. national. one marine park even left the better near we care up to trainers like him you know you should let me hear one of the front tire what i can you should you want to hear you are for someone to show for you drop your insurance if you have. someone tell me all get attributed to me all the way with you know. being says he was astounded to be put in charge of dozens of animals he had no qualifications or training and was just a university student studying account. and charge you enjoy the time this winter before which other people you know actually you often when children are too young to hear. the emotion you feel how do you misuse of words are for you if you don't trial for us your handlers are sure to chelsea why don't you
2:10 pm
tell her ours to have or not hold water and all the time to live the methadone though it's all total pneumonia. and that's why the lack of training has naomi rose not only worried about the animals but also the aquarium employees so looks like this scuba diver is scrubbing the bottom of the tank to the whale obviously this is all a game but the divers in a vulnerable position what if the well look he's his if the potential just pull the guy's regulator right out of his mouth none of that she says some practices she sees are downright dangerous to actually have a diver who's dependent on a tank and a regulator in the water with i don't know three at least. wild blue whales. that are clearly not trained interacted with him appropriately i get the feeling they just don't realize that this guy is actually in danger and i can serious danger
2:11 pm
potentially oia. well posing as marine park developers we were given a behind the scenes tour of one of china's aquariums during it the general manager here confirms that one of its cleaners almost r i i got it i have him i think i think it's going to go down but i think. the manager says the beluga was plain but it almost killed the man that he. sees he. eats and top up. i would have been with my little girl she somehow got there i think what i have that i don't have to have to spend much more you don't want because i'm a really hot i said let me tell you have caught on who turned out how do you want me to get out of my good how do you know you only get that. i have
2:12 pm
a five yeah i think i saw that. he was. he says the aquarium doesn't insure employees because due to the high risk premiums are too expensive and should send us at least. full service if you don't but you don't believe me put a good deal will come one of the blue to the full don't fade and open up that you go into it down you know which if you do a good job. and they have been gentle but. don't move by you i just don't leave you to sort of double should you be simply you get. to see a circle or you actually sort of then just i think. these are wild animals and according to the manager cage in them in confined spaces can lead to hyper aggressive behavior. dangerous not. just to their carers
2:13 pm
but to other animals. here researchers film a dolphin attacking another for hours on end. former trainer being says he witnessed a dolphin bullied so much its only escape was to jump out of the tank an action that would have led to its own death. would offer you you know you are felt healthy potent combination has been. our horse here for. lehigh shrilly. pago a lot of water on the lookout. but despite concerns over animal and employee health marine parks have long argued these serve a valuable purpose educating the public about marine life. but naomi isn't convinced. it really is completely ludicrous for them to argue that you have to see
2:14 pm
the animal in the flesh to care about it if that line of logic is true then ninety percent of the species in this world are do and it isn't they hunt in captivity and what eight year old have you ever met who isn't totally jazzed by dinosaurs and i think. that what experts like naomi know is that with the growing demand from china's marine park. the number. one of the most majestic and sought after animals is the orca also known as the killer whale. in this rare vision become child in russia. fishermen were filmed netting orchids. it is one of the only places in the world that still allows such captures it's
2:15 pm
devastating to or populations because. they're so tightly bonded to family they're so social they're so intelligent they're so cultural that if you just come in in a slave raid and remove you know three or four babies and the mothers are screaming in pain and that's what happens when they're trying to protect their offspring while these capture operators come in and cut them out and put them in a corral and you know it's chaos it's trauma. earlier this year the russian government approved the capture of twenty six more organs destined for the chinese market. well once popular across the world most older shows like this one at sea world in florida have been stopped. at the widespread condemnation and the deaths of trainers. but in china it's
2:16 pm
a different story they're gearing up for orca shows. one of china's largest aquariums has released footage of orcas being trained in their facility. secretly recorded conversation with one of china's largest animal importers explains why they're so highly sought after well you know what they are going to. push off with your we're going to transfer. to the home where you go. and what you're going to have a way. to go. according to government import papers china's marine parks have been bringing in orca's since twenty twelve. despite this none have been put on display. the aquarium manager we met with tells us the holdup is the fear of bad publicity
2:17 pm
and. i've got time you have a coach. if you're so. good you the buggy if you're not even on going jim bob. i'll need. you to yank a tire. he will put you on. the one. who remembers scientist naomi rooms or goes will never be on display. in china and she says the key lies in changing public perception. the has to be the whole the whole past to believe that china and russia even can move along the same societal trajectory the same growth and self-awareness and public awareness. and that the
2:18 pm
two finally get to the point well you know the sprog. when you see animals like these in their natural habitat. it's clear how highly intelligent and highly social they are. once you know that naomi believes it's very hard to accept there's a place for them cooped up behind glass. instead she says they should be left free. to roam the launch. live in a country plagued by poverty but for india's billionaires life is all about glamour luxury and christine. one of the new. business updates brought to you by qatar airways going places together.
2:19 pm
business updates brought to you by qatar airways going places together.
2:20 pm
because you know. this is zero. on. live from coming up in the next sixty minutes. the death toll rises off to a ferry capsized. on the tanzanian side of lake victoria many are still missing. vietnam's president trying to die quiet has died at the age of sixty one we'll take a look at his legacy. i don't know what. it is or what to do there was nothing out there a disease without a cure
2:21 pm
a strong warning on the growing numbers affected by alzheimer's. i'm paul reese with the sport tiger woods hits the top of the standings and the season ending top championship we'll hear from him later in the news hour. a lot of hopes are fading in tanzania for around two hundred fifty passengers missing after a ferry capsized the number of confirmed dead is rising quickly the latest toll now at least one hundred that is expected to rise as more bodies are found in lake victoria. well this lake covers three countries tanzania and uganda and kenya it's believed the ferry sank between who caraway and cora islands on the lakes south eastern shore tanzania has a history of very disasters over the years with overcrowding often playing a role in one thousand nine hundred six more than eight hundred people died when
2:22 pm
the m.v. sank in lake victoria one of the worst ferry disasters of the last century in twenty eleven two hundred people drowned off zanzibar the island in the indian ocean that is part of tanzania the passenger ferry was carrying eight hundred people when it sank one year later one hundred forty five people were killed in another ferry disaster in the same area let's speak now to catherine sawyer who is in nairobi in kenya for us so catherine the death toll continues to go up what what's the latest that you're hearing there on the recovery operation. the death toll continues to go up the situation as you mentioned is moving very quickly and the commissioner the regional commissioner all of warm ones and this is where this tragedy happened had a press conference about an hour ago and he said that forty four people today have
2:23 pm
been rescued thirty seven of them still in hospital he say that this operation now has moved from rescue to recovery and we also spoke to a district commissioner who think that they have made an appeal a local appeal for divers from other parts of the country to come and help in this recovery effort as the locals we are told have been very helpful local fisherman using their boats to try and recover as many bodies as they can. in the regional commissioner also said that more than forty four hundred people were on board that ferry that is clearly an overload and it's want people have been telling us on ground thursday was a market this a many many people were being transported from one island to the next island where the market was and they had their way is in there they are many bags of them and they were vehicles as well and any more of their domestic animals to take to the
2:24 pm
market so we're told this ferry was just a few meters from the dock when people rushed forward to get out of that ferry once it's dark this is a common occurrence and so people moved to one side of the ferry and this is perhaps what led to it toppling over and catherine given this is unforeseen on the first time as we showed there that there's something irises happen what sort of investigation can we expect. right now all the concentration really is on this recovery effort everybody is just trying to do what they can on the ground to make sure that bodies that are still trapped in the water are moved from the lake by the president john ponder mughal fully did issue a statement last night and he said investigations are going to begin immediately and one of the focus areas obviously is going to be this issue of overcrowding and they're going to be looking into the offices to see whether there are any records
2:25 pm
of the number of people who were actually on board we have been told that the ticketing off the stuff was in that ferry and he might have drowned with his data so it's going to be difficult for them to try and piece together this information of just how many people exactly what we're also expecting that it's very likely that investigators are going to be looking into this he was in as of this ferry but we have been informed as well that it had recently gone through a series of tests and servicing as well but a lot of people really has them just looking on to the government to do more because as you mentioned this incidents have happened in the last few years very many people have been killed in such tragedies and you know always being blamed on overcrowding so people are looking really at the government to do more in terms of
2:26 pm
investigations making public their findings and also putting measures in place to make sure such tragedies do not happen again indeed a lot of unanswered questions there catherine so a life for in nairobi. an investigation by the associated press news agency shows a systematic came campaign by the chinese government to strip young muslims of their language and culture the united nations has said around one million muslims in the shin jang region have been rounded up and held in so-called reeducation camps the chinese government denies this but on a honda has more. when many pit travelled with her husband and young baby to turkey to visit his sick father she lived for three children with family the oldest was eight the youngest just three but that trip appears to have coincided with what the united nations says was a systematic campaign by the chinese government to round up muslim wages and other
2:27 pm
minorities under the pretext of countering terrorism and religious extremism all. made it says chinese authorities weren't just targeting adults her children were apparently taken to the soften it she hasn't heard from them since then o'hearn out on the can to become a let me after i got the news i was so upset i one of them to grow up with me. isn't true every time i think of them i think of the things that have happened i feel horrible isn't a day when i haven't cried. all the so many pages now living in exile unable to return to shinji ngo she believes her children were swept up in a large scale campaign aimed at replacing the muslim leader identity with the chinese one something the chinese government denies. consistent measures are intended to promote stability development harmony and at the same time strike against ethnic separatists and terrorist opposition movements according to the law
2:28 pm
. abdulrahman i mean doesn't buy the official chinese line from cash he fled china five years ago after what he says was repeated her arrest meant of her his activism and writings since then his wife was a restated and he hasn't heard from his five children his daughter is thought to be at this so-called bilingual school but a sign at the front gate tell students to speak only mandarin on campus. to show them russian obviously it's brutality it's even worse than being killed what the chinese government's doing is torture. some analysts say china is repeating now widely condemned colonial practices of taking children against their will from their indigenous communities we view the education system as one of the primary threats to their future as a society is a weaker society and to their families to get there they made it describes an
2:29 pm
overwhelming sense of despair and i want to tell them i was so sorry for going with . dispirit being separated from the children she loves despair that the next generation of weaker may be stripped of the language and identity they hold so dear miriam holland al-jazeera. the leader of yemen's hooty rebels has called on his supporters to stand firm against the saudi iraqi led coalition of trying to defeat them thousands of people filled the streets of the yemeni capital sanaa to celebrate the fourth anniversary of the hoody take over the city the united nations is trying to mediate peace talks to end the fighting between the government and booties the conflict has killed more than ten thousand people and left millions displaced when an interview with al jazeera un secretary-general antonio good terror has renewed his calls for all parties to avoid a major escalation of the hoody controlled city of what data. our concern is
2:30 pm
first of all humanitarian concern in addition to a battle for a day that needs implications for the civilians and it is also a concern about the harbor and the possibility of harvard to suffer if the conflict . you know they the becomes acute so that is why we have been recommending the parties to avoid a mess of battle and to do that because obviously in the planning of the calculations that might exist on one side or the other there is this reality that is very worrying which is a dramatic humanitarian situation in. yemen yemen is a very complex situation you have of course the hutus and the government you have. the visions in the south and clearly different perspectives in relation to it from the you will you from the government side now you have a tribal reality that is complex with alliances that shift you have this presence
2:31 pm
so it's a very complex situation in the country that is why it is so important to come to an agreement between the hutus and the government of the in the coalition it's a first step it will not solve all your many problems it's a first step to create the conditions for a united. central government in yemen to be able to deal with all the different contradictions and problems that will still remain. other president of vietnam has died in hospital at the age of sixty one the government says tran daikon had been sick for several months he was one of vietnam's three most powerful leaders but his presidential role was largely ceremonial he morgan looks back at his life. grand icon's time in office was brief but marked by domestic crackdowns and a bid to stabilize relations with the united states he was sworn in as president of vietnam in equal time to sixteen the sixty one year old had been a public security minister and police general areas which had been the focus of
2:32 pm
criticism of the nation's human rights records under his rule vietnam launched a crackdown on corruption and dissidents posting on social media he'll also be remembered for a major expansion of the power of the ministry of public security and the police in the larger vietnam political system he quite clearly has made the ministry of public security now one of the preeminent organs of power in that country and it continues to affect the lives of daily via the maze and not of her positive way i mean in terms of rights violations he was he was the leader of the band abroad one try to stick to vietnam's policy of non-alignment whereby the nation doesn't rely too heavily on any one superpower and exploits rivalries to its own gain he quoted various international leaders from poland to iran and was the last head of state to see cuba's fidel castro before his death but we had norms maritime disputes with china in the south china sea and its long term concerns over its northern neighbors
2:33 pm
territorial ambition has seen its edge a little closer to the united states one signed billions of dollars worth of deals with the us president donald trump and pursued a trade pact after the us pulled out of the transpacific partnership once enemies on the battlefield and the us defense secretary james mattis discussed the prospect of military cooperation between the two countries in march as a sign of his growing relationship a navy aircraft carrier with five thousand soldiers and pilots on board anchored near the port city of the land this was the first time that had happened since the end of the vietnam war in one nine hundred seventy five and the historic visit carried a message to another superpower now that was a very significant this. money spout and then the astute of so because the color would. ease the hide of the united states navy and so was about to clues into sas china sea as a show of defiance against china the rule of president is largely seen as
2:34 pm
ceremonial but posting was theme as a stepping stone to becoming the communist party chief and the nation's top leader and. for more on trend icons impact and legacy let's speak now to southeast asia analyst benjamin so whacky in bangkok thanks very much for being with us so how how should trend icon be remembered. well who clearly be remembered far more for his forty years or so literally two thirds of his life that he spent in the police force and in the ministry of public security five of those years as the minister himself for more for those years than for his his two and a half year tenure as president but essentially when you say vietnam it's become almost synonymous with with human rights violations in the region among other things and indeed the late president is as much on account to account for that association as is anyone else at least going back over the past couple of decades
2:35 pm

2:57 pm
out there she needs care around the clock i cook i believe based. on my doctor i'm her nurse my friend i sleep in the room with her. because i'm afraid. she'll get up and fall five point seven million people in the u.s. have alzheimer's treatments are emerging but there is no cure it's only going to get worse because people are living longer communities like this will bear a heavy burden of alzheimer's disease in the coming decades research shows that latinos and latinas are one and a half times more likely to develop alzheimer's disease the non let's you know whites alzheimer's among latinos in the u.s. is projected to increase eight hundred and thirty two percent by twenty sixty one i think for the most part are not ready for the wave of alzheimer's that will impact what you know communities families part of that is because of low levels of
2:58 pm
awareness he. sees to increase awareness advocates of produced a tele novellas style video series about a family coping with the disease but society as a whole is not ready for the surge in alzheimer's completely unprepared we knew it was coming we've known it was coming for thirty years that we're unprepared on all levels we don't have the investment in research we have a totally unprepared health care workforce martha diaz has advice for caregivers don't do it alone attend a support group we talk with our stressed out we cry we listen to each other we help each other caring for florencia defines martha's life and that's fine with her i have no regrets no requests that there you don't have or i

don't know what's going to happen to me a disease without a cure but with the treatment called low robert oulds al-jazeera los angeles. or timers disease is the most common kind of dementia it causes problems with memory thinking and behavior worldwide around fifteen million people suffer from dementia and almost sixty percent of them live in low and middle income countries that's because of how quickly the elderly population is growing in places like china and india nearly ten million new cases of dementia emerge every year that's one every three seconds and the total number of people expected to be living with the condition by twenty thirty is projected to grow to eighty two million so let's speak now to paula barbara you know she is the c.e.o. of time is disease international thanks very much for being with us so in your in your estimation are we properly prepared for this well no we
3:00 pm
aren't and today his for the most they are now our biggest challenge here is to raise awareness and demand char as a global epidemic and there is still so many people who thinks that as i met in demand at a product of aging anything not tendencies that we need to walk at it we will find a solution but we need everybody to be aware that the disease exists and has to be treated as such and their aides have their noses globally are still very very low and certainly as we wait for a cure as your previous correspondent pointed out there is a lot that we can do about improving stand that of care globally and if you have an older family member or a loved one who may be at risk what are some of the signs that people should be looking for for early signs of dementia. they reported that we published
3:01 pm
today their words are most report which i suggest to everybody to read because it tries to explain simply the hall conundrum around what is apennine with the damage disease or why we are struggling to find a solution and one of the things we look at is a reserve chair more widely sort of search and risk reduction is equally important it is definitely true that we can do something about our kind of give us killer health by exercising that we can feed ourselves back to nutrition is really important to place definitely a part in getting. in reducing the risk of getting. a disease and dementia and let's not forget the brain and how. keeping your brain moving keeping your brain exercise is absolutely fundamental in your inducing the scope of developing dementia but all the other symptoms that the people develop there may be
3:02 pm
a clue to. later later dementia the the warning signs characteristics for example yes. we have we. have produced a ton warning signs old out to gain anything that report there are any number of things people report to different science at different times or wherever and dementia is not just one illness there are hundreds of four different types of dementia and it manifests itself in different ways a lot of people point out to memory loss so that's not necessarily the first sign some time is the is an issue with spatial awareness to be less aware of the space surrounding you or some people report of relatives wandering for example so there are quite a few signs that can point to our to maybe an issue about some time is not our
3:03 pm
simple as the sign. what is really important to wherever is that if that is any idea some kind of confusion related to the match i may be setting be spatial. cognitive impairment of some kind. is very very important to seek and diagnoses and one of the things that we are finding increasingly is that in a lot of the war of the event the doctors are not aware about dementia so we need to also the educate educate primary care practitioners we need to educate the pharmacies people to whom are the people that you are mean when you go or asking for advice about what to do about a relative just just briefly and finally what do you believe we're any closer to to finding a cure or an effective treatment for alzheimer's. well the
3:04 pm
signs are more promising i think we need to look at this in the broader spectrum we are not going to find one magic pill that's fifty short one hundred the fourth act of the mencia think about cancer that is different treatments for different type of counseling will be the same with dementia even if we find one thing is not going to address everything however we also have to look at care there is a lot of advances that can be done about caring for people and talking for example or about risk reduction that is a lot that can be studied to further we are getting closer that is a lot of new frontier cinema chatter searchers are trying now looking more broadly at the number of factors and that is very exciting and we do hope very much that that will be a cure but we need funding so this is not going to have ten ladies we're calling a.d.i. for one percent of the societal cost of the disease to actually be devolved to finding a cure for demand all governments are have
