7:37 pm
when they were taken back to tembo aware that come from and then this child has died and in goma as you mentioned we have also been monitoring the situation there health officials are looking for several other people who could have been in contact with this preacher who has also since died people who have been other people who had been in contact with him have been vaccinated as well health officials government officials with doctors saying that they have been preparing for months for this eventuality and they. they are confident that this is not going to spread any father but this is a situation really that is causing a lot of consigning in goma because this is a city that is very strategically placed catherine just briefly so how likely is it then that the double ajo meeting in geneva today will declare it bona in the d r c and international emergency while this is this
7:38 pm
situation and certainly makes it even more important for the truth to declare this and this meeting this imagine see meeting really was called by the director general of world health organization after the incident in goma and this director general doc that the brain yes said that this really is a game changer and this is because goma itself is a major city in d.r. see more than a 1000000 people live there it's also a gateway to other countries it's right at the border with one day in fact one to has issued a statement asking its citizens to avoid going to go go might solve is also it's very easy from goma to access other parts of the country including the capital kinshasa which has a population of about 12000000 people or at a conference or the nairobi conference thank you. the u.s. government is imposing its strongest sanctions to date on me and military leaders
7:39 pm
as they target me in moscow modern chief and several other senior offices as in response to the mass killing of bring the muslims in 2017 a crackdown led to a humanitarian crisis washington says the government hasn't taken any action against those responsible for human rights abuses well here's how those sanctions will they bob those targeted on the immediate family is from traveling to the united states comes a year after economic sanctions were placed on lower level security officials this time it's the military's top brass ahmad in chief. his deputy so when to subordinates together they are accused of orchestrating widespread rights violations forcing at least 700000 rangar to flee the country since august 28th 17 with al-jazeera as mama jump jhoom joins us on set and he's covered the ring of crisis extensively for us some of the what are you hearing now from your range of contacts on the ground in bangladesh as there are in the last few hours i've spoken to growing the refugees who live in those camps and cox's bizarre as well as rowing
7:40 pm
activists who are in various parts of the world and the response has been fairly uniform the us for all of them saying to me look this is a good step it is a step in the right direction but it doesn't go far enough and this is something we've heard over the past couple of years from refugees and activists you know they believe that the top brass and me and more should have been sanctioned you know 2 years ago they believe that this is coming for too late and that this just means that it will take far longer than they would like to achieve any kind of justice i also spoke with one activist who said to me they cannot understand why the word genocide is not being utilized by the united states when describing the alleged atrocities against there were hanging in the statement from u.s. secretary of state mike pompei oh it describes what happened as ethnic cleansing now that has been a consistent. addition by the united states the last couple of years that's how
7:41 pm
they describe what happened but there are other governments like the government of canada that say that they believe that a genocide was perpetrated the fact now is you have the international criminal court there's a delegation that's on the ground in bangladesh they are continuing their polyphony investigations into what happened and the rain the refugees that are there say we just don't understand why more governments why more institutions are not calling what happened to us a genocide and you talk about the i.c.c. team that's currently in bangladesh how difficult will it be for them then to start a case do you think it's a tricky process daryn because let me try to walk you through it as briefly as i can so you had in the past year a decision was made at the international criminal court the jurisdiction could be given to the international criminal court to investigate the allegations of these crimes but could only be given in bangladesh because bangladesh is a signatory to the rome statute so they are a member of the court but me and more is not a signatory to the rome statute so that's one complication then you had these
7:42 pm
investigators that have gone in now there's a 2nd team that's there but in the past 2 weeks we heard from the prosecutor of the international criminal court she has put forth a formal request to the panel of judges at the international criminal court to open a formal investigation into the atrocities committed against the working but a decision has not yet been issued so it's complicated and the reading of it i speak with worry that this could take years this might even take decades if a case is brought at all just a final quick thought from you mamma before you go how it's been musculature then love to respond to these latest sanctions well i would not be surprised if they basically at some point issue a statement that condemns the sanctions what the me and my military has been consistent doing is denying the allegations that have been leveled against them in these past few years so they've not taken responsibility they have said over and over again that what they did in iraq and state was respond to acts of terrorism of course that is refuted by the dozens actually hundreds of refugees that eyes. and with who told me over and over again about some of the worst abuses i as
7:43 pm
a journalist and the teams that i was working with have ever heard being perpetrated against the people and right now you know we have not heard yet from me and morris military we don't know if they will issue any kind of a statement but the fact of the matter is that the people that we're speaking with on the ground there say this does not yet impact them they are still at the mercy of the international community they are still living in unsanitary conditions during monsoon season when they are at the mercy of inclement weather when thousands of families have been displaced because of monsoon rains the past few weeks and they don't think the situation for them is going to improve anytime soon all right we have to leave it there thank you very much indeed. now yemen's who the rebels say they have again targeted saudi arabia's port with a drone but the saudis say they intercepted it before it going to hit the target with these say they disrupted operations at the airport which has been targeted by the who these many times in recent weeks. all right lots more to come here not just here including. that office of the office of the mayor and the officers what they bought them outside steps that they need to be up for outrage from the mother of
