10:05 pm
requested that as long as they stuck to an approved route tens of thousands of protesters came out and much peacefully through this part of hong kong in the north west then again as we've seen in the past quite a few protesters broke away and adopt a different tactic setting up barricades blocking main roads and into sections and when we've seen them do that in the past the police waste very little time in coming in to clear them away and that's exactly what they did a lot of tear gas fired again on sunday a very large police presence we still have police presence in some of the neighborhoods near where that march took place it's quite tense in this particular area as they just go through looking for any remnants of that protest movement that took to the streets again on sunday we heard about a petition being delivered to carry lymes office by the families of police officers . what's the latest on her efforts to to draw all these protests to
10:06 pm
a close. yes well i think many people have been suggesting from day one really that's one of the only ways to solve this problem is for dialogue to take place direct dialogue between kerry lam and to governments and to the protesters that has not happened in the past 2 and a half almost 3 months since this these protests started what we saw on saturday was the beginning of what she is calling a brainstorming session involving influential people in hong kong politicians other figures as well that began on saturday with 19 of those people going to government house and media reports suggest that more than half of those people in that meeting urged to accept some of the protesters demands including an independent inquiry into the conduct of the police actions since june when these protests started and also to officially scrapped that extra extradition bill which is how this all began
10:07 pm
in the 1st place no sign of course that's going to happen in the main problem with those talks on saturday is that none of the protesters were there al-jazeera is way today reporting live from hong kong way many thanks. approved beijing panel has chosen a businessman this macau as chief executive holdout saying was picked in a selection process that had no other candidates like hong kong macau is a special administrative territory of china beijing took control in 1909 after more than 4 centuries of portuguese rule. rangar refugees in bangladesh are marking 2 years since violence forced hundreds of thousands of them to flee to me and. in cox's bazar they've been protesting over conditions in camps because their situations are resolved bangladesh is warning that it no longer can bear the economic burden of more than a 1000000 refugees many have resisted efforts to send them back to me and are
10:08 pm
saying that their safety can't be guaranteed well here's how this crisis unfolded ogust 25th 2017 fighters from a armed group attacked dozens of myanmar police posts and an army base around 80 fighters and 12 members of the security forces were killed the fighting spread of the ring to say that hundreds of their homes were set on fire by the military and buddhist militias within weeks was 300000 rohingya had fled the violence which included murder rape and torture they crossed the border into bangladesh and by mid september the un to describe the military operation against the ring the as textbook ethnic cleansing al-jazeera stephanie decker reports now from the kuta prolong refugee camp in the southeast of bangladesh. today's quiet calm betrays the scenes of panic 2 years ago when hundreds of thousands of rain across the river now off in a desperate attempt to seek safety they are safe now but nothing has been resolved
10:09 pm
nor has 6 children who was part of the exodus in august of 2017 already rather. they asked if you want to go back to burma i said no yeah ask me why i told them that the houses were burnt our family members were raped and killed this is why we suffered so much and came here how can we go back without knowing that we will be safe. there's been a renewed effort to get some of the refugees to go back to me in march but with no guarantee of what will happen when they get there no one has so far agreed to return the scale of this camp is like nothing you've ever seen it is the biggest refugee camp in the world around a 1000000 rangar living in these camps across southeastern bangladesh but what does that number really mean well it's more or less the population of islamabad or oslo it is a city of refugees without the infrastructure needed to cope many aid agencies work
10:10 pm
here in that sense it is a global effort but it's bangladesh that's hosting the rangar and it's made it very clear this is a temporary solution and it's a population that keeps expanding this is a really dynamic population. aboard 100 to 2 been born in the carter 3000 police report of people being murdered him to you so. the young won't remember much about what happened but the older ones know that the killings the rate the burning of homes in august of 2017 was only the latest chapter in what's been decades of persecution against their people and as you hussein is a camp leader this is his 3rd time as a refugee in bangladesh. our grandmother no boardroom i don't bother my gratitude i'm 65 years old i came here as a refugee in 1978 then again in 1902 then i went back now i'm a refugee again i'm 2017 i've spent 30 years of my life as
10:11 pm
a refugee i want to go home if the burmese accept our demands will go back right away. what they want is to be officially recognize israel as citizens of me and mar with rights freedom of movement and security what they want is to go back home but the reality is they are not wanted there most of their homes no longer exist bangladesh is categoric it can't post them forever it's not clear what or where their future will be stephanie decker al-jazeera could have a long camp cox's bazaar southeast bangladesh. there nearly is the u.n. special repertoire for me a man she says the conditions in the country are not fit for the ring or to reach out they do not feel safe to go back and by saying they do not feel safe to go back is those perpetrators who are responsible of the torture the rape and the killings
10:12 pm
and the burnings and those who are responsible of course was forcibly deporting people out of me m r they're still there and if you have those security forces police and military still there how would you feel say 2nd they did will not have any freedom of movement that is not any condition anybody would want to return to that is not a dignified return and there is. no citizenship or rights that they can enjoy that other people in them enjoy and we have to remember that many of the people in cox's had in the past enjoyed ship but it was all taken away from them prisoners in a bahrain jail or on hunger strike saying that they're being mistreated around 600 inmates began a strike 10 days ago over conditions inside georgia prison in the east of the

a started to impose a punitive measures that no longer tolerable by the present things like just various so they can actually even have a direct contact with their families and it's been the case for 2 years that some of those inmates did not had a single time in a visitation at this time i think denial or american negligence so there are serious disease within the prison that people can see that they don't really get even a proper treatment they don't know that medications the situation with comes into 50 prison facilities and it's overcrowding you talk about a president that was supposed to have only 6 inmates it's got in some cases the 12 and some cases even 18 individuals day in and out of water and they had a bad food in many cases they do commented mess numbers of individuals being facing food poisoning just because of the poor quality of the food so in summer there are
