6:00 pm
other part of this, there's no consequence. this stream on out is the this is al-jazeera. and i mean, this is the news are live from doha coming up in the next 60 minutes. the united nations says at least 110 people have been killed in a massacre. in northeastern nigeria is suspected to be behind the attack ethiopia's many trees celebrates the 2 grand capital for the hunt is on for any rival forces to fight on voters and switzerland. naturally reject plans to
6:01 pm
make companies liable for human rights violations or environmental damage anywhere in the world. he's been called the elephant in the book cover begins his long journey to cambodia and the years of isolation, pakistan and in sports. and mike tyson insists he wants to continue his career in the boxing ring after 8 year absence. former heavyweight champion has made us return exhibition fight. so we begin this news hour with breaking news from nigeria and the united nations says at least $110.00 civilians have been killed and many more injured in an attack in the northeast. so there have been funerals for some of the dozens of farmers who were killed while working in the rice fields. a local officials blame the boko
6:02 pm
haram fighters for the violence. let's get the very latest now from our bridges. he joins us live from the nigerian capital of the this is a truly dreadful attack. what more have you learned to and why these farmers were targeted? indeed, shocking. indeed. we are hearing that the attacks actually happened in 2 villages. excuse me. and is a bit muddy. the funerals actually took place in the bottom. are you what we're hearing now? is that 27 others have been more than 27. others have been buried in a hunt is now on for maybe survivors. but there are a lot of people who believe that dozens and dozens of bodies are still in that we've spoken with a few official. some of them in my guess, he went to school, said they are now on the search for more bodies in that particular area. we are
6:03 pm
hearing also that at least 26 people have been taken away in the united nations also is confirming that many women have been abducted by the attackers. so it's a dreadful event. and of course, one of the warst masochists we've seen in recent years after what's happened in by got some years back. so the nigerian government is calling for calm and the president issued a statement earlier today condemning the attacks. however, what people are saying in that region is that they security forces and government has failed to protect them and that he's little hope for them to see to it that they have that peace of mind that betty quite remember nic. a lot of people have traveled back home or have gone back home. they have left the refugee camps all internally displaced persons camp in the safer areas of my degree to their homes in
6:04 pm
preparation for the agriculture season. and these people were the ones harvesting these crops, some of them what i thought chile contract it from faraway places, asako to, to come to my degree to help with farm work. and these are the people that were buried today. and these kind of attacks have been present on this scale, but they've been going on for more than a decade. one is the government not being able to quell them? the government has claimed several a that it has said dude, or the test claimed victory of a whole. but what we've seen in the last decade or so is i research and resurgent bokhara 1st of all. it started in nigeria and from the city of my degree, it's a, it's influence spread across a border state across 40 local government areas of butler state. in fact, it reached a point where by most of the local council council areas, in my degree,
6:05 pm
what taken over by boko haram, the only safest place probably would be the capital city itself. because it's a governance in town. it's protected by the minute to the military. you make sure that that route link you might agree to other parts of nigeria. one at least one road west kept open for most of the period, but quite i was controlling lots of territory. the military in collaboration with regional forces have succeeded in chasing out. but what i'm from such, eddie, yes, but what we've seen is that, but what i'm a prates at will. and recently last year, which was of course, the deadliest for security forces. we're talking about hundreds of security forces killed by boko haram and in order to reduce the casualty numbers on the part of the military, they withdrew from such in villages and small areas to form some what they called super camps forming those super camps exposed a lot of villages to attach bible quote and that what we've seen with what we've been seeing for more than one obvious now and communities. sometimes communities
6:06 pm
cannot step 2 kilometers outside of their villages without getting or without getting or without being attacked by bill quite armed. and these people, these activists a re, usually, or routinely drive on motorcycles and invade communities, their property, kill and maim, and have ducked as us. they wish our nominee would leave it there for the time. being ahmed interests are reporting on that reflect time by boko haram, it seems are reporting from one theory now the ethiopian government has told, are now working to clear out opposition forces hiding iran to raise capital of meccania. after 3 weeks of fighting, the government says it seized control of the city on saturday, and members of the 2 grown people's liberation front have fled to surrounding areas and the group is vowing to fight on. many fear the conflict may spread beyond the borders destabilizing the horn of africa. 6 explosions were heard in the eritrean capital of asmara on saturday. no claim of responsibility,
6:07 pm
but forces fired missiles at the city just under 2 weeks ago. there's also concern over reports of violence against nearly 100000 eritrean refugees living in 2 great head of the u.n. refugee agency says he hopes humanitarian access will be granted within the next few days. my colleagues. so you mean she's the spokeswoman for the ethiopian prime minister's office. she also expects retaliation from the ground forces. so warfare component of this is part of their history that they have enjoyed with all the guards. and the way there is a popular support for this kind of thing within the region that people have to go to have been exhausted for some many years. and in fact, over the past 3 years, what you would see is that there isn't quite an economic devastation and social no one because that has been giving them prisoner small meant a lot of services and
6:08 pm
a lot of attention that needs to be paid in terms of providing people's lives in the region has not been tension. there isn't that, that for anybody to chance is what you're saying that at this point we don't believe that there is any chance of that. and if there is, it could be also quelled with their national defense forces and the security imperative that's being set up. what do you say to allegations government shelling has killed and wounded a lot of civilians. that's not something that's corroborated because as you can see, the entry into the belly has been with the least amount of civilian damage. and in fact, a lot of civilians have been, as i stated earlier, supported within the city and as well as all of the other cities as well. one thing that we have tried to make clear before as well is the reason that this operation has taken a little bit more time than it was supposed to is because the national defense forces, strategically have been avoiding towns and cities to avoid civilian casualties. so
6:09 pm
they've been weathering rough to regions, and anybody who's familiar with that region does understand that it's quite a heavy terrain, the area. so they've been cutting across all of that. and also with all of the public infrastructure and other forms of certain you allow, despoiling their way out of harm's way for civilian sake. right. so if that's the case, it sounds like from your perspective, the government has nothing to hide. will you allow journalists into the area, journalists that we have not been not allowed to go in? one of the things that we have to be clear about is that while the, so this is an area that's under a state of emergency. so there is a security threat, that's why a state of emergency was an act that constitutionally so a security means that the federal government, whoever that they are settling into the region needs to be protected as one journalist international journalists have been also going to the areas under federal commitment have been reporting in those areas. all right,
6:10 pm
but our correspondent, i believe, has been in touch with you will you let him in? because as you just said, the conflict is over and you don't think there's any chance of guerilla warfare. so it sounds like security is not a major concern with you. our correspondent, as i mentioned to you, the state of emergency has got its own command chain as well, that it's under a command post at the gregg region as well. so entry to that area is going to be something that's administered through the command post. so these requests are coming in. the government has got a clear request mechanism that they're handling through that you're going to broadcast authority as well as relevant government entities sort through that process within due time and ensuring the security of people going to that region. there would be no reason not to allow journalists, as well as humanitarian assistance actors to enter the area. but let's take a closer look at the area around the capital back in the military says it seize control of the port there. it also says it has taken buildings belonging to the t.p. l. f. the city of haifa, 1000000 500000 people. it's a mountainous in
6:11 pm
a mountainous area, and let's say that 2 great forces may have retreated to the hills undetected from here, it's thought that they could launch guerrilla attacks. let's speak to some you like it to you who's the journalist a reporter. he joins us live from ethiopia, a couple of out of about skype. it's very difficult as we know to get information out of the region. but there is this mystery about where the forces have gone the number in the 10s of thousands. what's your best guess? my best guess is, you know, there's an assumption that what happened in sri lanka was a time when tigers in 2011 would happen in the field. we hope will have, but the tepee are left as a strong as a strong, loyal army. but i mean, you have to go back to history to see how effective they were in defeating mengistu, haile, mariam 3540 years ago. and i'm not surprised, you know,
6:12 pm
between declared by the government and all of a sudden it continues just like iraq mission accomplished. it never stopped, and i would assume they would try to make a comeback and make sure that their voice is heard and is included. and they're not just wiped out from the political map, which they controlled for almost 30 years. it seems as if it's a fairly straightforward takeover of mecca. do we know anything about casualties? and we are getting some information from the i.c.r.c. who say that the hospitals are seeing 80 percent of injuries from trauma and that the hospital hospitals are lacking supplies as well. but the information is scans the say, do you know any more? i would disagree with my fam, see you missed that you spoke to the media is not allowed in there. there's only a p that's allowed federal controlled area of state. i have
6:13 pm
always wanted to go from day one. i wasn't allowed. i'm still not allowed. many of my colleagues are not allowed. so we don't know, we are just focusing on what victims are telling us once they reach the sudan and reports from amnesty international human rights watch. because once again, the media is not being allowed in there. what about the ordinary people on the streets of metal a those who are on the fight is those who are still there. how will they take to this takeover going to the government? tired of the time of the g.p.l. s. and will accept the new status quo. is that how you see it? you know, the cheap state election in september, which it claimed to have 100 percent that likes where you know, everything is won by the government. so i don't think lection was fair. i don't think it should have been contested and starts not an indication of an
6:14 pm
overwhelming indorsement p.l.f. . there's no system where we check. we are sorry, checked whatever the people think. but the reality is that people are very divided, when it comes to c.p. and that's the mistake i face. you also have one of the youngest postulation in the country. they all grew up in an era of p.l.f. . what the canadian prime minister joe clark used to say that they will, you know, that the devil you don't question with them. and that's what that result. and the kit is one of them, but they claim, once again, 100 percent. if a guerrilla war does ensue, how do you think that's likely to pan out? and when do you think it might start to be a long and bloody affair? again, it's hard to predict. but if you're no stranger to this kind of conflict,
6:15 pm
you know, during manga style m, i am, there was all kinds of conflicts. continued with the now we, now it's continuing with it. so it will continue once they regroup. but it's always, but also how the government we are, the demands of the people at the government goes to the mccully and all of a sudden tries to hand out condoms, for example. so they can look friendly to the locals. there will be an issue, but there has to be a conversation. there has to be an understanding what, what, what they want, what the people of the great 1. 2 you know, they've been through an attached to the rest of it for many, many years. i mean the money, not many years, but 3 to 3 years. they have to be able to connect and park and see the value of a strong and united if you will. where they can elevate their diversity and not enough places of the parks. because even the feeling that if you had left the people of the great never benefited,
6:16 pm
you only have to go to the same quality. how poor the people are, understand the plight and the poverty that exists and to ground and are left. there's a system to bring them back to have them feel. if you are a revolution in terms of our becoming from an independent from one, a dependent nation, to one of the biggest economies growing economies are because they also have to feel that it doesn't have to be just the other part of you feel. ok, jim, appreciate your perspective on this and some will give it to the speeches from at a fabulous well, tens of thousands of civilians displaced by the fighting, taking refuge in a vile is live for us from the camp for displaced people sudan's. you've got a state 1st, we'll just tell us about the kind of conditions you're seeing. and the numbers of new arrivals just with regards to the numbers, they're talking about 43000, who have already arrived here,
6:17 pm
where the which is one of the biggest camps it already holds 10000 people registered actually still going on. so the number is growing, understand that the numbers have trickled down, the numbers came down during the last few days, and there is no clear convincing explanation about why that happened. whether it was because the heavy fighting has now subsided, according to the government, or whether because the roads are blocked. now that the army and the militia controlled some of the crossing points. people, people are still coming anyway. they are being registered and they are being helped out by the humanitarian and jos. we asked them whether they are happy because the, since the news came back to the degree fell in the hands of the, of the each open government military. and now the fighting is over, are they going to go back? they tell us that they are not happy with that,
6:18 pm
and they explain that to us in the next segment. and i don't want to go back, we don't want to go back because we so administration of a lot of digging has with the help of everything and government made in not elected by the people either soldier, he's a thug or he's not nominated by the people that's why we don't want to be killed. we don't want to go back to the people, the power to the people. we don't care about in addis ababa. we don't care in our heritage and we are just, we need dr. is elected by the people. so like this, this person said another person told me that they consider that the situation will still remain for them to return. unless there is a government that is elected by the 2 grains themselves. are not people imposed on
6:19 pm
them by the government in this is the humanitarian situation is still once a lot to him to be improved. we have seen that you are not out there in jos trying to help here in this camp and the in the other camp. the u.n. high commissioner for refugees. phillip organdie was also here touring the sites to see the story for himself. just a while ago he said that humanitarian help is impossible. it's impossible yet to bring humanitarian help inside itself within reach of here. but he hopes that each open government is going to get access during the next couple of days. and here as i speak, food is being distributed rations being distributed, people build still building their homes with the help of local n.g.o.s and international n.g.o.s. but the situation they tell us here is going to get worse, ask more people, come before it gets better. thanks. so much live reporting there from

boost yet to he's through all of this is already half of his 1st term, but he's still doing pretty well. he has popular support for himself. he doesn't have a party like president donald trump has the whole republican party behind him visible . so now does not have a party, he has his supporters, hard core supporters, which will support him no matter what. now the thing is so well, would he be able to govern with congress and without a political support? because you have to get lots of laws approved in order to, to put in place whatever politics it is that you want to do whatever policies you say that you want to, to have a road that's a picture from really going to give thanks very much and you well, as hope grows for a covert 1000 vaccine, so are warnings about accessibility and availability in latin america. remote communities in the amazon jungle and andes. mountains have been hit hard by the

6:34 pm
people really need that people already think that the big think that the government will take some measure and we'll be implementing some some measure in the future when the e.u. for example, needs implementing those at the rate. it's tell us more about, but what does this measure was looking for? what kind of crimes that would be committed that would, would implicate the big companies that are based in switzerland. what sort of things they were trying to stop. he was focusing on human rights meant. so each companies were subsidiary operating companies abroad, but linked to the sea based company where i'm not taking sufficient measure to respect the environment, human rights, then people could shoot this company under scottish law. so the action was taking
6:35 pm
road, so not directly. so it was based on some un principle, but really the goal was to have and portman mechanism to implement concretely things like a child, labor, in cobalt mines in the d. r. c, and so forth. it's only since been a worthy cause, because, but how it's managed is, is challenging. is that because if you think the nestlé said that they buy from 200000 dairy farmers every day across the world and therefore that they would be answerable to 200000 different companies who have been just impossible to please with that was the big game and of the no camp and think they will create some kind of legal uncertainty is those who each of are directly related like it saving the initiative or yes, you are saying initially that these 2 player must be economically dependent of this
6:36 pm
year's base company. but how you define that big companies, even if it was accepted, they could always even some prove it took some to measure all the measure that was possible to be taken to protect human rights on their own. meant not to be liable for the a was something that would have been hard to implement, but still it was to be topic and it's not only end today. go on with the debate, i'm sure. yes, i'm sure it's a muffin. thanks so much for your time. thank you. thank you. rights groups say thousands of migrant domestic workers in the middle east face poor working conditions or risk of physical and sexual assault. the human rights agency abroad says, a number of bodies of female workers have been sent back to bangladesh from the gulf in the past 3 years. and the challenge from by the cries
