6:02 pm
malik? well, this is part of the campaign that was launched by the government of national unity called bringing life back to tripoli. it includes clean up, the city are building parks and recreational areas and pursuing illegal activity. now, yesterday, the ministry of interior announced that a carried out a security operation in the area of good gattis up to gucci the areas known across, across people in chablis as a place where, you know, drug trafficking happens or so. it's is part of a campaign to clean up the city. of course, there are, there are human rights organizations out there saying that abuses were carried out yesterday. these $4000.00 migrants and refugees will now be scattered across our detention centers in the area. and often in often poor conditions, now libya has long been a trump transit hub for migrants trying to reach european shores. that number has
6:03 pm
increased in recent years, due to the political divisions and the conflict and libya, the southern borders are open and security service services simply can't cope with the increasing numbers. now you have to remember, these are people that are fleeing, you know, extreme poverty famine and war, or they take these, they undertake these long and treacherous a journey just to reach libya, which has its own difficulties at the moment. or they oftentimes work for months on end, doing labor intensive jobs to earn enough money to pay for yet another dangerous journey across the mediterranean. are some people make, make it to, to a, to europe, a, according to see, watch a european and g o. last week, 686 people reached land, producer, or some aren't so lucky. just a few hours ago the you and hcr said that 89 people who were brought back from c. r to tripoli, including 8 women and 3 children. 2 bodies were recovered and 40 have gone missing
6:04 pm
. so just to give you an idea, the, according to our, your worm in 2021 along over 25000 people were brought back from sea to libya, with 455 deaths. and over $660.00 missing i. e. e. say these people are being taken to detention centers scattered across libya. what will happen to them there? well, they often times spend many months are they apply, you know, some, some don't want to return to their countries. some do, even though that want to return to their country, they're often times held in these detention centers and very poor conditions of 4 months on end until you know, the aisle where am or international organizations along with libyan libyan, or ministries, are able to take them back home, up, but some or have been in this is centered centers for years or so. you know, it's very difficult. it's very strenuous also on the libyan government,
6:05 pm
which is dealing with its own issues. you know, with the, with the political divides that are happening or so, but, but these people are, are dealing with a lot of challenges and, and the migration issue isn't something that's new. it's not something back that will end until people can find a opportunities in their countries of origin. or you know this, this will likely keep on going. ok, malik? many thanks it it out is, here's my train of their lives in tripoli. the taliban says that it's speaking directly to the us about building relations more the month after america and american of foreign forces withdrew from afghanistan. but it had interview with al jazeera, the tele barnes foreign affairs spokesman, denounced us drone operations in afghanis pace. fear violation of our territorial integrity of afghanistan. it is a blatant and a clear violation, or it is against the commitments that the united states of america made it in the
6:06 pm
doha agreement. the doe agreement clearly stipulates that to the united states and or other countries as well, its allies will not interfere in internal affairs offer up around this time. they are not only violating their own commitments, but they are also violating international law more now from hash of a whole barra who's in cobble. this shows the dilemma that all the parties are facing in afghanistan, the taliban took over the wound, the war. but suddenly they found themselves grappling with how to run the country. they need resources, they need cash, the need assets are frozen in the us. they need the international recognition to be able to move forward. in the absence of that, they would have a huge problem financial and political, and one day they won't be able to feed their own people. this explains why they are
6:07 pm
desperate for international recognition. they had high hopes that the americans would step in by the americas are waiting to see whether the taliban of to day or not. the taliban of 1996 with the 1st took over the country. and this explains why on one hand the taliban. i'll upset with the americans because we have intercepted what they say are drones, which have been flying over the air space of audits. and they say this useful. but at the end of the day i, we've been told by many tele, been officials that they are direct talks with the americans and the hoping to convince the americans to deal with the taliban. for them, that will be a cornerstone that would grieve the way for more stability in of one isn't in the us. more than $600.00 marches are taking place to support women's reproductive rights. it's an annual event. this year the march is focused on laws in several states to restrict access to abortion, particularly it texas, which is effectively banded. we have to correspondence covering this for us at the
6:08 pm
side. a moment will speak to chaper tansy, who's at a rally in washington. but 1st let's join. how did you, castro, who's in austin, texas. heidi, what's happening there? ah, adrian, this is perhaps one of the biggest women's marches of the day. organizers were expecting some 10000 attendees. i know several 1000 have already arrived because taxes here is ground 0. when it comes to the abortion issue, abortions have been effectively band in this state since september. first. that was the day that a new law came into effect that band abortions once a fetal heartbeat is detected which is around 6 weeks, usually before a woman realizes she is pregnant. and since then we have seen women in taxes having to travel long distances out of state for the procedure or having to continue with their unwanted pregnancy. and the protesters here say that is simply
6:09 pm
unconstitutional. they're holding signs, i say my choice, my body, and they are very upset with a conservative state government here that have passed this law. and they say that the law itself is illegal and should be overturned. they are hoping that the courts will weigh in soon on that front, but earlier the supreme court with its new conservative majority, has so far, refused to immediately hold the law for a temporary injunction. so it is an uphill battle here for the protesters who want to support reproductive rights for women. and this is only one of several states dealing with that same issue. i was 0. honey. jo. castro, live that in austin, texas. let's go to washington. then i'll just sarah shebra, tonchee is there was salute dash up several 100 people who have joan doesn't actually even, even in addition to the issue reproductive rights. this, this small child, the verizon, them out, as you mentioned around the country,
6:10 pm
also being seed as a barometer of whether you hashtag resisting serves in 2021. you'll remember me dropped him off. donald trump's little duration of the day, i often fucked. $4000000.00 people riley around the country against old trump, which, which helps the democrats in around and it's utilizing bout about sugar power in the, in the mid terms and so on. so you can see that little democratic strive, district ally on all that sticky. well, what about, how about resistance? is it still there? worse is the, is the sense that i'd sure that house well dissipated other joe biden is in also, so that's quite interesting. especially going to the 202020 to mid terms. the democrats rather hoping, actually, despite the fact that the official line for the democratic party is pro choice pro women's rights to choose, even though there is necessarily unanimity in the policy itself. joe biden himself was against abortion until a few years ago. there is some relief actually, amongst democrats, the republican governors around the country are making this
6:11 pm
a wedge issue. and there are other hoping that this energy might carry them into the midterms. now this being washington, though, as hydro castro mentioned, there was a great deal of shock than the supreme court refused to get that emergency injunction . say the rally is just beginning here, but eventually we're going to walk down pennsylvania avenue to the supreme court, which is just behind the capital building, building there for rally bad. so i think there is real shock that the supreme court didn't didn't issue that emergency injunction because supreme court precedent is pretty clear. state calling to pose an undue burden on a woman seeking an abortion i had before viability. the texas law, the texas little outfall is abortion. after 6 weeks viability is not the 24 weeks. so that's one of the focus is to, to, to show the outrage of the supreme court decision. but it was the 1st real flex for the new trump majority observed majority on the court, which ruled 5 to 45 to 4 against the shooting emergency injunction. the chief
6:12 pm
justice roberts, also conservative, did not rule with, with the majority. so that's one issue, but also we're also heading towards december. the 1st, when the supreme court will hear another case of mississippi of ocean law, which bounds both up to 15 weeks. that's coming up to. and that could be the 1st real test of what this is conserved. the majority intends to do with abortion, with the possibility of a ruling sometime next year ahead of the mid terms again. so this is going to be a real key wedge issue in the coming months and tools to 2020 to mid term elections, to have any thanks on sarah shap returns to their lives in washington. oh, you're with the usa from missouri still to come on the program from chile to columbia and beyond. the refugee crisis is intensifying across slash. america will be live with the latest calls for an investigation to the shooting of a rectangle leader inside the world's largest refugee camp at his fort. fossil in his head. coach admits his time at the club may be running out so that he would
6:13 pm
that know the rest of the day. schools literally ah, wisely refugee of micro numbers across latin america, al, reverberating through the regions politics and che rival protests are going on in support of and against migrants and in columbia. the situation for people trying to reach panama is becoming increasingly desperate. we'll have more from colombia and just a moment. but 1st let's go to our latin america editor lucio newman, who's in santiago and for the past few moments. we've been watching lucia tension spilling over there a you okay to talk to us. absolutely. yes, absolutely not. well, with a group of about a 150 anti migrant demonstrators and gathered here in downtown san diego. and just a few minutes ago,
6:14 pm
another group of pound remarks of people dressed in black hooded, came through here through rocks and started beating some of the demonstrators. i can tell you some of the blood on the, on the street when we got became very violent. the police had tried to push them away, but it has been very, very tense. these demonstrators are also threatening the, the media saying that we're all communist and that we support the united nation. so these are the sort of things that we're hearing, but basically them, you have to say that julie is for the chileans, that are very angry, that government has allowed on documenting language coming into the country without identification. many times they are saying that the country can simply not take any more people, especially people who have not been vetted. now just to put this into context, chilly has become a bit like the, the south american version of what the united states is. and that is a magnet for undocumented migrant from all over the region except that jenny,
6:15 pm
a firm, okay. he says that they're going to count, they're going to sing the national anthem and then they're going to leave because they're becoming dangerous for them. but as i was a kidney is becoming a magnet for a reason for my going to from all over the region. but unlike the united states, it's not nearly as well see not nearly as large. and it has become rather chaotic over the last month or so. and these people here blamed the united nations, they say that it's forcing the chilean government to adhere to certain international treaties to which it is a signatory. but however you want to look at it. this is a sign of how much resentment and anti migrant feeling is beginning to grow and tuning. since the thousands and thousands of mainly been have in his wayland migrants have been coming into the country. you see many thanks indeed, the sea and even that live in santiago i, let's bring in. i was on hold, i'm be se. then he's in the country in columbia where migrants trying to reach
6:16 pm
panama from where you are, that this situation is becoming increasingly desperate. alessandra, yes, that is the case. let me give you just an idea of what the backlog of people looks like here right behind me. you can see the line that stretches all the way down into the pier. these are the 500 people that will be able to leave on boats to day to cross the gulf a vote by and from there start probably the most dangerous direct of the stretch of their journey through a notoriously danger is that he and john go over there, on the right though, you can see there are hundreds more people migrants, mostly haitians that are trying to score a thicket to get on one of these boats. but all the tickets have been sold all the way until the end of october. also there are hundreds more who are trying to
6:17 pm
change the ticket they already have because in many cases they've already been stuck here for weeks. and they probably have a ticket 2 weeks, 3 weeks from now. and they're hoping to be able to leave earlier than that. because they're running out of money, and that's because people here are taking advantage of the presence of days, migrants charging them very high prices on food, water, everything they need. most of them are paying $810.00 a day, which is a lot of money here. to stay in crammed room with 6810 people at the center of an effective date rights groups are calling for an investigation into the killing of a prominent ro hanger, leader of the world's largest refugee camp. the shooting happened at cox's bazaar and bangladesh out 0 time via treasury has been speaking to people that evarado are right. and our security, our safety for years running a leader mobile
6:18 pm
a regularly received that threats and predicted who'd be killed. like many other ringer refugees, mohammed cuts him says he feels devastated for years now. we've been watching and following my he buller was jammed to us. all this don't so much for us, but we couldn't save him. he took our case to the global community to seek justice for us mobile or came to prominence when he was chosen to represent his community on a visit to meet then you as president, donald trump, at the white house. and i turned the un human rights council session in geneva in 2019. this is the place where ro hang our community leader, my bill i was shot that when as the night there's a uneasy come prevailing in the camp and a heavy presence of security. rowing or refugees are worried and anxious to find out who is behind the killing. a funeral was held for more hibler inside the camp. among those there, his wife and 8 children lay that it will be said that he left he was so much
6:19 pm
responsibility. i am devastated. how can i manage the family now? it's a difficult road ahead. i am scared to live here. now. we need security as he is dead now. only a luck give us justice. police said the martyr was well planned. i'm of the police will be the unity of the country. all police units are involved in resolving this case and finding the motor behind it. we got some important information today and detained the suspect. hopefully we will resolve this case. so we're going to get the report in recent months, the office of the refugee relief and reparation commissioner has severely restricted media access to the cox's bizarre refugee camp. making it difficult to gather news, but it's clear, many refugees feel fearful and angry monitor that we're getting that we're very worried about his killing. he was a leader in the community. he pleaded our cause to the world. many who did not want to be identified on camera told al,
6:20 pm
does it or that the murder is the latest example of a fight for power between armed gangs. inside the world's largest refugee camp 10, richard re al jazeera could to prolong cox's bazaar. poles have just closed out a cat, ours 1st legislative elections. people have been choosing members of the sure are council. voters will decide who fills 30 of the councils, $45.00 seats. the rest are appointed by cut us a mere who previously chose all members of the body al jazeera is tamala trout, is the pulling station here in doha. so the polls are closed. what can you tell us about how the selection has gone? well, seems the thir, the people of cutter have welcome to the chance that they've been given to have their see and select or who will represent them in the countries legislative body. because we've seen a constant stream of voters coming, not just in this pulling station agent, but across the country. and right now the officials have sealed. obviously those
6:21 pm
boxes have been sealed. they're waiting to open the seals rather to start the counts shortly. we have a group of the candidates who are contesting, also are standing by to see how they've fared in it. and what we can say about these elections is that it is a new direction for the countries you mentioned there prior to the these polls today, the shorter council was not just appointed by the rule, but it was also one that had limited powers in terms of its ability to legislate and so forth. this new model for it is one that's at 2 thirds of which. so the super majority is selected by the people and one that has significantly more power and scope and remit. particularly when we're talking about oversight of budgets. when we're talking about at the performance of governments and ministers, and therefore for authorities to be able to have their say in who will represent them. that is a significant step towards widening that participation and redrawing the social
6:22 pm
contract between people and the state. and about how long before this new sure to counsel gets to work. and how long did you members, actually, sir, before, there are more elections so in terms of the term, it's a 4 year term. so the idea is that there will be another election, obviously for 4 years from now when it starts worried that will would depend on when the mirror points the other 15. what we understand is obviously his appointment will wait to see who wins here to see if there is any need to bolster any specific representation of minority groups or different sections of society. that being said, there is more than 10 percent of the candidates were women. obviously, how many of them when maybe that will dictate obese, who, who is selected or if there are specific expertise or backgrounds. there is a wide range of people who've been contesting here from business men to form a diplomats to teachers and other sections of society. so one of the
6:23 pm
main challenges that they're going to be facing obviously is in terms of legislation, you're talking about labels in the country, which arthur has moved quite strongly over the past couple of years or the previous shorter council was seen as one that wasn't so encouraging of the reforms that catherine made. so that's going to be something that they would look and choose. one of the other key issues that they were talking about was the election law themselves. there were section of authority society that were not happy at the way in which that law was implemented. they felt that it ruled out some of the people who are the nationals who have been here for decades. that something that many of the candidates said that they will be dealing with as a prior to once they are elected. obviously all of those issues and those contentious issues aren't necessarily unique in the sense that every parliament has them. but what is unique in the region is that this is a new process that is happening and arthur and a new model that they're presenting or at your moment. thanks a didn't 0 to model,
6:24 pm
shall that a police station here in doha back down to a story. we touched upon just a few moments ago, writes groups calling for an investigation into the killing of a prominent leader ro hanger, leader at the world's largest refugee camp. sod, hummadi is in colombo for us, is the south asia campaign of amnesty international. his work is focused on bangladesh. that thanks for being with us said sod, given the work that he was doing, who would have wanted mo, him ala dead? to moving a cam has, has been going through a number of what to say untoward situations for the last several years. and ever since that x or doesn't 2017. now it has a population of nearly a 1000000 refugees. and you've got different groups operating their criminal groups that have at different times organized times and, and violence in the camps. lois,
6:25 pm
very opposite that those groups, he has been campaigning for the protection of throwing refugees and for their returns in safe voluntary dignified conditions hasn't been agreed by the into that community boiler has been organizing the community towards that direction. the fact that he has reached out to the international community, he has visited the human human rights council. he has spoken, vegas visit of the white house in all these places. he has talked about religious freedom to be able to go back to their homes with safety and dignity, and with their rights and shorter willis wasn't really received well by some groups . and these groups have been active in the camps. they've been organizing different types of crimes from operating drug candles to holding refugees, hostages to, to killings that have happened as recently as last year. we do really that sort of indicate who could be behind it. here we saw in the report a few moments ago, this outpouring of grief for him. what does this to mean for refugees in that camp?
6:26 pm
and is the government to say when it says that it wants to kill us court and dealt with quote severely. this is a huge blow for the wing, a community he's involved with top community. this was based in the camera. you don't see too many outspoken looking good communities within the cas, unfortunately, but, but believe it was one of those few leaders who have really organized the, the community brought them together, talked about the, the rights that the refugees deserve. and to be able to go back in this situation it's, it's really important that the refugees that provided the safety and the protection in the camps until day when to go back. when the government said that they will bring the public trenches to justice. it also must ensure that they have brought to justice and fan trials and that there is transparency to the investigation. it
6:27 pm
needs to happen soon, but at the same time you and record g c the community days, as well as the government, the law enforcement agencies must work together to ensure the safety and protection in the camps for as long as they're there, those watch towers and surveillance cameras and barbed wire fences that have been installed and are in the process of being installed, haven't really helped protect or prevent the motor of this. this leader was so popular has been so popular in the camps among the refugees. so it's very important that instead of building all these, what should you say this confinement it's important to ensure that this safeguarded in the caps. there are different types of that different actors that play in terms of pushing the refugees to the remote passenger island. and that's also happening because of the threats and intimidation that they've been facing from these non state actors, the on groups that are better operating in the camps as well. and it's important for the authorities. they do note of this and take appropriate actions. so i'm
6:28 pm
really good to talk to you many thanks. did sad about that and come about thank. so to come here on that is how the julian george's former president is affecting that election. seniors of crucial test for the governing part of the force of nature, the erosion from law thomasville, taylor intensifies shooting war, molten lava and toxic gas across the island. and it's for this to museum player has stayed on course to create more tennis history will tell you more around 20 minutes . ah hello. they will have a look at africa in a moment, but 1st to the middle east, and we're watching a tropical cyclone that's developed into a severe psychotic storm as it works its way towards the gulf of a man. if we take
6:29 pm
a closer look, it's worked its way south of pakistan bringing a lot of wet and windy weather to coastal areas of iran as well. now it's taking aim for the north of oman. it is likely to bring some flooding rains. wind speeds of up to a 120 kilometers per hour. so we are expecting quite a lot of lifted dust and some possible dust storms in the surrounding area. we'll keep an eye on that. no further north. we are seeing some heavy rain of northern parts of iran, thanks to a bit of a winter. we mix that been plaguing the caucuses. but further south of this, it is a lot hotter, a lot dryer. the temperature above average for iraq and for q weight, but it is going to dip down in dough. we're going to sit in the high thirty's, but we will see a bit of a wind kicking around lots of hazy sunshine. now the weather is wet to the west of yemen, and that joins up with those storms rolling across central parts of africa, uganda going disease and heavier rain in the days to come. as well as the democratic republic of congo. we could see some flooding here. now as we move down
6:30 pm
to southern africa, it is going to warm up for cape town. we're going to see the temperature pick up. ah, housing has become a commodity instead of a human rights. now you, some people, the ability to take advantage of others, the elite feel free to violate basic laws, the working classes that have lost a lot of ground in society. a un special reporter on adequate housing travels the world, investigating the global crisis as people are evicted to clear the way for investors and properties too often left empty. push a witness documentary on al jazeera, on counting the cost under americans legacy and german economy. that is the envy of the world but.
