>> thousands of people are leaving their homelands every day in search of better lives often in great risk. thousands don't make it and most of them find more problems after they do manage to reach places as they see as their havens. more than half are fleeing war an most of them come from five countries. afghanistan, iraq, syria and ano somalia and sudan. a main route is from africa through sudan. more than 8000 migrants landed on lampedusa this year alone. another dangerous route is from java to australia. the boats carry 45,000 people have arrived on australian shores. we are continuing our special day of coverage examining
6:03 am
migration across the globe. stef is on the ind indonesia is. let's go to barnby phillips. we have seen many stories in resent weeks. but this is affecting europe for a very loc long time. >> it's been going on for years, david. but it's really here on this little island you appreciate the drama and the travesty of it. lampedusa is a tiny place. few square miles of baron rock and scrub. there is very little here. but it's significance is if you
6:04 am
are making that dangerous crossing from the north african coast this is the first piece of european land you come to. it's been voted the most beautiful beach in europe. but how easy it is to forget the drama and tragedy that plays out every day jug just a few miles offshore from la lampedusa. the italian navy has sent one of it's biggest ships to help in the crisis. 380 people picked up at sea the previous night. most are african young men. and they have paid to flee their country. >> it'so many young persons are dead. and there are the people of all ages. none of them will no what will
6:05 am
happen next. some too young to understand where they are. they are registered straight away. the navy will take them directly to sicily. because lampedusa is struggling with the mik migrants that they have. >> the biggest part of the immigrants wish to go to germany and other parts of europe have a more flourishing economy. this is a historical situation in which people are fleeing their homeland because of the wars and it's a massive activity. this is the sen center the italn authorities built to house migrants on lampedusa. it's built for 300 people. there are over 700 inside. not given permits to enter. over the fence we spoke to
6:06 am
mohamed and how was his seizure? lamlamblampedusa of it's dangerd crowded and the seas it's too dangerous. >> what do you want now? what is your dream for the future? >> to complete my study. s. my studies. >> to have respect. >> lamlampedusa was a sleepy ple known for fishermen and sunsets. now it has a fame it never desired. the island that people risk everything to reach. in the process of these people after they have landed in la lampedusa. is there any distinction between those that are fleeing genuinely aand those that are economic migrants, moving own so they can earn more money? >> yes there is. they can apply for asylum and
6:07 am
that application is heard. if they come from a country like syria they probably have a much better chance of their case being accepted. but the system in southern european countries like italy, like greece and malta is under enormous strain. >> and that is why the countries in the mediterranean feel that more prosperous countries in the north places like sweden and norway, germany the united kingdom should be doing more to help them. however, you run into political realities, david, no european leaders want to see human tea hn tragedies in the mediterranean. no one wants to see people drowning. but immigration is a very sensitive political issue across
6:08 am
europe. there is a strong sentiment that not quite enough people have come to this continent, people n elections are coming up and anti-migrant parties are likely to form and that is why for example leaders like merkel and david cameron have spoke on this issue. >> we thank you very much indeed. we go from lampedusa to tunisia. we are talking about one of the major stepping off points for europe and th an southern europn particular. any idea how many people have tried to get out of africa from where you are? >> well i have to say that it's diminished here in tunisia
6:09 am
partly because the tunisian coast guard have been more active and the tunisian government has an agreement with the italians where to yo to tuno try to get to europe thank you you -- through italy are deported back here. we are talking about thousands of people who have left since the beginning of the year and we understand that there are thousands of people right right now in detention centers an trafficking holding centers waiting to get on boats. and the worrying thing about this, david, is that the seas look pretty calm where i am right now. but out there winter is arriving and the seas will get increasingly choppy. the journey that is already dangerous is going to get more and more dangerous but people are desperate. they are desperate they don't
6:10 am
want to stay in countries like libya where they could be treated or tortured we have had reports from human rights. or deported as well. they want to get on that boat. >> the coast guard is mak making more out of it now. are people choosing tunisia because it's the easiest place to get away from where they are from. >> what happened after the revolution, a lot of migrant workers who are in libya had to escape because of the fighting there so they came to tunisia. this is one of the poorest of the borders. this is why. the sahara is and thousands of kilometres. people prefer to go to libya and to try to make the journey from there. it's not just the tunisian coast guard has been clamping down. it's the easiness of getting to
6:11 am
the coa coastline and getting to beaches aen getting t a and get. we are going to wrap up this section with the humanitarian policy advisor from the uk. i know you just came back from lebanon and you encountered many refugees there. when we talk about them leaving from tunisia that is one heck of a journey. over land across africa. >> that is correct. i'm meeting refugees to hear their stories an se and see whey have come from and what they are hoping to do now. one thing i have been told many, many times over what has started out as a shor short term crisiss been a long term reality. >> they are looking for news nes to build their lives in other places.
6:12 am
>> if we are talking about as we are at the moment particularly those that try to make the journey into europe by north africa a and lampedusa. have you any idea how many people are attempting this at the moment. >> the latest official numbers are 700,000 and increasing so in that ratio lebanon may have as many as a million refugees there. and if the situation continues like that the living situation in lebanon and will continue to deteriorate when the winter arrives. there will be more people making that journey unless we provide assistance in lebanon. >> to give people an idea what the people have to do to travel through libya. >> when you talk to the refugees in lebanon would your advice be
6:13 am
it's better to stay where you are than make this dangerous trek? >> we don't necessarily provide specifically advice on that. whoa we ared what we are audadve aid they receive. and within lebanon there are many different places in jordon thawhere they can receive assistance. and they are looking at information and they need to provide to the governments and the institutions on best help for where they are at and information to the refugees how they can best receive assistance where they are. >> thank you very much johann to talk to us on al jazeera. we'll have more on the global crisis later. >> we are live from indonesia and australia.
6:14 am
a call for action. the i believe indian governmente to prevent acid attacks on whip. ♪ women >> at least three people have been killed after a nationwide strike in ban bangladesh turned violent. the three-day protest called by the opposition began on sunday. in one in incident police opened fire on activists throwing stones. six people were killed. and bang will h bangladesh parts demanding that they resign and hand over power t to a caretaker government. boycotting parliament has become part of the political culture in bangladesh. so claims transparency national.
6:15 am
the between 2009 and 2012 politicians didn't show up or walked out 7.5000 times. and we report the area. heated arguments used to be in parliament. lately those are rare. not because the parties don't get along. but said there is no one to argue it. transparency national says opposition m.p. ac's have skippf the parliament i. >> they are in parliament and if a member of parliament doesn't a attend is depriving his own constituents from being heard in parliament. so yes it does hurt. instead of critiquing parliament
6:16 am
the on have avoided parliament and taken to the streets instead of. >> the speaker shutting down the microphones of the opposition. the opposition submitted 2500 adjournment motions in the span of the first four years of this parliament. would you believe that the government has not accepted a single not. >> the ruling party itself began the culture of boycotting parliament since it was in the opposition. today it's gotten worse. and there is little policy taking place in the halls. >> the public is frustrated with the behavior of both parties. >> the ruling party think they can do whatever it wants. and the opposition feels there is no point in doing or saying anything. in this environment maybe you would be boycotting commit -- parliament yourself.
6:17 am
to avoid the standoff they are negotiating a power sharing deal. but very few people are banking on it's success. >> well we spoke to the executive director of transparency national bangladesh the group that wrote the report. he said one of the biggest problems is the government is not being held to account. >> the opposition is boycotting and taking advantage of the 90 days of absence of the parliament it gives an opportunity to become a deliberate policy on the part of the opposition party or the coalition to take a very, very absent from the parliament. that has to be banned and totally stopped by amending the institution. one is about the constitution amendment and it's misuse. it don't allow the parties or the bloc or the coalition and
6:18 am
the bloc. that has to be done by the parliament members themselves. to stay away from this culture. and what we think is important is to really impose a restriction of the boycotting of the parliament. >> teen-age girls are recovering in hospital in mumbai after being forced to drink acid an thrown into the sea. thousands of attacks take place in india and the government is being accused not doing enough to stop them. you may find some of the pictures in fez jamil's reporting. >> it's been a year since acid was thrown in her face. >> my life has changed so much. i didn't think i would survive. >> she has survived but it's difficult for her to hold back the tears. all she wants is to come close
6:19 am
to having a normal life. >> i think that if i can get better, i can get a job and i will be able to take care of myself. >> in the meantime it's her family and friends that are taking care of her. the same can't be said for the government. the latest victim of ana an acid attack is recovering in this ho hospital outside of mumbai. the family is rus frustrated bye government. >> we are told there is no money in the front until november. what are we supposed to do until then. it's not enough to punish the attackers. they have to create public awareness. >> it doesn't matter if it's a public place like this or somewhere secluded. >> experience shows no place is safe from ake as acid attack.
6:20 am
despite a treatmen supreme courg to restrict the sale of the acid, it's still easy to buy. >> the person that throws it once you are sents t sent to jar ten years. then they are free. what about the girl who the acid is thrown on she is in jail for life dr. gupta has helped people with acid attacks. he believes the only way to stop these frie crimes is to end thee of acid. >> unless we make the vendor equally responsible and they should also be punished. >> if people can't bu buy acid y won't be able to throw it. a simple situation from someone who faces a difficult life. >> in july the indian supreme court gave state government
6:21 am
three months to bring in new rules to regulate the sale of acid. the courts said acid should only be sold to those that show a valid photo id card. and the sel sellers have to recd the address of the buyers. the court directed that acid attacks must be a non-bailable offense and the victims must be compensated with fiv 5,000 doll. now in the first three months of this year there were 53 complaints of acid attacks to help women. does that tell you that the number of these attacks are rising and the authorities are doing very little, in fact, to stop them? >> oh, well, i think the attacks are always rampant. it's only now that the indian
6:22 am
media is a wakened and they are reporting the cases ten years ago they were happening and there was no local media. there was no place of these cases on-line. >> i'm sorry to interrupt. do you think that organizations such as your own, and we have your we website that we can taka look at with a great many shocking images on it stop do you think bringing this to the public's attention is changing attitudes in india? >> it is changing. we are seeing the stay tune stue taking up the cause. and we started the cam pa campae goal was not to set up an ngo or a shop. we are not doing anything actually just stamping out super fishily. fish -- supe superficially.
6:23 am
we are telling people that laws alone cannot stop this crime. unless your mind-set changes. unless you change the way you look at your women, you are not going to stop these crimes. >> is it a societial thing. >> does it matter in india what section of society you come from how you would view an acid attack and prop perhaps whetheru are a victim of one or not? >> i would say i cannot difficult residentiadifferentias are more prone in this section of the society. if you look at the problem it deals with the entire society here, the rich, the poor. the problem lies in the way you look at your women. it's not just acid attacks. you are campaigning against acid attacks because it's the most inhuman forms of violence against women. there are things that's are happening in india that need to be looked upon.
6:24 am
the rampant rapes and the way we look at women need to change. changingchanging the acid sales. ed a the basic purpose of our campaign is to change the way we look at ou our women. >> thank you very much. >> thanks a lot. >> there has been a serious car bomb attacks in the iraqi capital. 39 people have been killed and ten explosions across baghdad. another 120 were injured. a car bomb at a checkpoint killed 12 and wounded dozens. >> there has been gunfire throughout the night around central mozambique. they have taken over the re re o
6:25 am
base. there have been skirmishes here. no one knows where the rena massachusetts amofighters have . the ones left here won't tell us exactly what happened. and this is the scene that is here at the camp. we think something is happening somewhere because we saw a few rush out. the few that are left here are guarding the particular area. no one knows where the r renamo fighters are. lots of people are worried at the momentum, david.
6:26 am
>> what is the story because the civil war ended a couple of decade ago. and we have seen relative peace in mozambique. were the fighters allowed to remain with their weapons? do they feel they have not been treated very well? what has gone wrong. >> when the civil war ended in 1992 and the peace deal was signed. and then the renamo leader claims he is not well treated and whatever was promisedded was not given to him. the government is not sharing the wealth of mozambique like the das gas and the coal reserv. this part of the country is very poor and those people are frustrated. all of those things come into that. the key thing is where do we go now. 200 kilometres from where i am the military has to escort buses and cars because it's not safe to drive on the road. on saturday a passenger bus was
6:27 am
targeted. it's not safe for the average civilian. they are not sure what is going on. renamo has threatened to bo boyt the elections and to disrupt them. >> on the danger os of mozambiq. >> , weatheweather now on the n. >> we have been talking about the potential for stormy weather pushing into the northwestern corner of europe. you can see blustery showers rapping in in the atlantic. we have seen heavy rain and wind pushing through. that is ahead of the main weather event. you can see the bands of cloud over the united kingdom. over the next 24 hours we are expecting the potential for windy weather pushing in for parts of the uk.
6:28 am
worst affected will be across southern england and wales and pushing up through eastern areas of england and the southern flank is where we expect to see the worst of the weather. we could see trees down and power outages and it could cause problems for monday morning's rush hour. by monday there is plenty of showers and strong wind and wind winds could exceed 10 100 dower. 100 kilometres-per-hour. brighter on tuesday an 11° celsius and 14 for paris. we are looking at wet and windy weather for northern france and the low countries, david. >> thank you very much,. >> stay with us we have this coming up on the news hour. >> i like guns. i don't think people need to carry guns to get a hamburger. >> we examine why some businesses in seattle on america's west coast are making
6:29 am
customers leave their weapons at the door. >> and a rare call lead to a controversial end t to baseballs worworld series.
6:30 am
6:31 am
because since 2007 boats caring carrying 45,000 people have arrived on australian shores. david thomas is outside of the did hdetention center. and stef i say begin their journey to australia. it's the end of a journey that began a long way from where you are? >> yes, david this is a major escape route and many here asylum seekers are hoping for a
6:32 am
safer and better life across the sea in australia. it's only around 30 300 clams 3s to christmas island and asigh em seeker are hooking up with smugglers who are active and they pay hous thousands of dolls ant in thand in the middle of tt they are transported to a safe house and brought to a beach here. many of them sadly don't survive the journey across and e many ae intercepted by police like you can see in our report. >> he was arrested and transported around 230 seeking refuge from myanmar. he was taking them to a boat when the authorities stopped him the police were tipped off and intercepted six trucks. he was threatened into becoming
6:33 am
a smuggler. >> i was afraid when i saw all of these people going into the trucks. i told them i was not going ahead with this. but the man that ordered the transport started screaming they would burn my trucks and threatened me wit with a gun. >> they are still looking for the head of the syndicate. it's believed a police-officer is involved. they're escape myanmar. the police told them to go. we find them in the same village they started from still afraid and in shock. these are the asylum seekers who left least week trying to seek christmas island by boat. they are broke but still trying to make the journey by boat. all of them have been stuck in indindonesia for eight months or
6:34 am
longer. >> we don't trust them for sure. we have spent all of our money. we have no choice but to try to reach australia. we receive no help in indonesia. >> indonesia is not on the asiem asylum for the refugees with the u.n. >> have not death wit dealt wite police officers but i have heard of the allegations. >> it's rare for the police to arrest the leaders of the smuggling send wh syndicates. this man is responsible for smuggling thousands of people. he is optimistic he soon will be free. nearly 10,000 asylum seekers are stuck in limbo here in indonesia aand some of them live in dire
6:35 am
conditions because they don't receive any help here. despite a new tight australian refugee policy they hope that australia will still accept them. stef, thank you very much. andrew thomas outside of the detention center in sydney. although indonesia has not signed up to the refugee convention and australia has signed up. there are many things that australia's policy towards these refugees is pretty cavalier of. >> absolutely. australia's interpretation of the obligation is lose to say the least. australia has a proud and long history of immigration. and for decade waves of people have come here and led successful lives. in resent years the looseness of australia's borders has becomes
6:36 am
a controversial issue. >> and various rival parties say other parties have lost control of australia's border. and the amount of people that are coming by boat is win thing that one party beats the other up on. the out going labor government had lost control of australia's borders. they say they weren't tough enough. already at i at at that stage am seekers were kept in detention centers. and eventually after a long period of time were they allowed to stay in australia. that the opposition party they said encouraged people to make the same journey. and anybody that arrives on australian shores is sent to papa new guinea or naru. those are two countries that have signed the u.n. convention
6:37 am
for refugees. anyone who gets sent to those two countries will never end up being settled in australia. it's a dead end. the hope is that it will stop the boats and will stop the illegal entrants from coming here. >> that is where the debate is here in australia. it's not a racist current but rt it's one concerned. >> let's try to end this on a slightly up beat note. are there people that do successfully find new lives in australia? >> david, i think your question was whether there was economic mikmikemigrants. >> are there many people who successfully make it through all of the trials and tribulations of the crossing and end up processing to start proper new lives in australia?
6:38 am
oh certainly there have been. approaching 50,000 people in the year since 2007. at that stage the arrivals who came they were kept for period of time in detention centers like this. once their claims for asylum were assessed they were found to be genuine refugees. and almost 80% were found to be refugees and they were given residency in australia. many lead successful lives here. they play an integral part of australian life. that has not stopped the political rhetoric. and what that means in practice regardless of how successful these lives are once they are here, regardless of that the politics of this is people should come in the front door and not the back door. people should join ques and then allow australia to let them in
6:39 am
rather than coming by boat through the back door and letting themselves in. >> thank you indeed. andrew thomas and the rest of the team worldwide. a we'll day of coverage on al jazeera of the worldwide refugee crying sis. crisis. we'll look at africa and caribbean. there is more on we have put together the price of passage map and it will show you how and where migrants are traveling. and a great deal more. all of that and more >> syria's main opposition groups have rejected the geneva two peace conference. in a taped statement they said anyone attending would be considered treason and would have to answer t for it in the
6:40 am
court. they are putting them together at the negotiating table. there has been more fighting between government troops and rebels. these pictures show fighters with machine guns and rocket propelled grenades at military targets outside of dasmascus. estimated 115,000 people have been killed since the uprising began in 2011. many wounded as well with limited resources syrians have to be inventive for those that lost limbs. >> it's true. necessity is the mother of invention. this conbe more tru concouldn't. here in dasmascus they have taken it upon themselves to manufacture prosthetic limbs. parts of these are made from
6:41 am
remnants of the army metal from bomb shells and blown up cars is meltedded and molded together to help the disabled. >> this joint here for example is made from a hinge of a destroyed car now it has the same function of your knee. we are forced to make due with what we have because the seige is not letting anything in. this is one of the people whose life has all but wrecked by war. lishis leg has been blown off ad he now has a prosthesis free of charge. >> at first i used a stick and hopped from place to place. now i have a leg. prior to the war these people had different professions. but as the war has united millions of syrians thank you th
6:42 am
suffering it's brought together people in their efforts to help each other. >> we have coverage on this news hour of the indian grand prix. >> and the no motto gp title rae coming down to the final run of the season. stay with us.
6:43 am
>> you are watching the news hour here on al jazeera. >> georgia is holding presidential elections and there are 23 candidates all wanting the top job. these are the three leading
6:44 am
contenders. georgy and david bakradze. from the national united movement and the party led by the out going president. and she was previously aligned and speaker of the parliament but stepped down as a protest against the president forming her own party. robin walker joining us now live from tablisi. if the ru front runner wins ande prime minister is a deadly rival we are likely to see a very different type of government isn charge of georgia, robin. >> i think so. let's talk about the personalities quickly. he is a larger than life
6:45 am
character and has a enormous influence over georgia and stepping down if georgi gorgey s his place we know little about him. presidential powers will be severely curbed once the next president takes office due to constitutional changes coming into effect. >> what are the changes and what difference is that going to make. >> well chiefly, powers will be transferred to the prime minister and his cabinet. and that is the ability to appoint the interior and defense ministers and the policies domestic and foreign policy. and very importantly it will be parliament with the cabinet of course who has to agree on the state budget. and the opposition is saying get
6:46 am
ready for real politics once these changes come into effect. they are going to try to hold this new parliament or new government to account, david. >> robin, 2003 what they called the rose revolution, ten years on, how much do you think, and you have been there a long time now. how much do you think georgia has changed? >> i have been to georgia for a few years and i hope to be here longer. the president presided over big changes. when it gets dark the lights stay on now. and that is one thing he is credited for. and dealing with petty corruption and you can't bribe a police officer these days and that says a lot about a of sovit country. he was top-down reform without
6:47 am
engaging in society. and that is why he became increasingly unpopular. they say he behaved as a dictator. there is a chance he could face prosecution when h he steps dow. what is important to talk about is where we are heading next with the parliamentary democracy taking shape. but the man responsible for changing politics says he is going to step down. who is he going to appoint to e his successor. his personal wealth is more than the entire budget of georgia. what role is he going to play from behind the scenes after he steps down. >> the cable cars are working as we can see behind you. >> gun control is a decisive issue in the united states. in the city of seattle 100 businesses have set up gun-free zones.
6:48 am
telling their customers firearms are not welcome in their shops. >> five points ben her been her4 years. it's notorious. every famous musician in seattle has been kicked out. it's one of the first businesses to go gun free in seattle. >> i like guns but i don't think people need to irkar carry gunst a hamburger. they are asking other businesses to become gun free zones as well. >> if a lot of private businesses get together to ban guns then it makes carrying guns an unfriendly thing in seattle. it changes the conversation around gun owner hop ownership. >> this week another business joined that conversation. the 100th since august. it doesn't take much to do it. sign up on-line and display a sticker. these businesses are taking action because the city has not been able to.
6:49 am
>> for years ago the city of seattle tried to ban guns in public places like this park. washington state courts ruled that cities have no authority to regulate guns. but private businesses can regulate. they can tell people to wear shoes and shirts and they can tell them to leave their guns elsewhere. we think the gun free zone is stupid. allan founded the second right amendment in 1984. as for gun free zones he says there are thousands of businesses in seattle. and having 100 sign up is not much to brag about. >> they don't stop any crimes from happening. they don't make people safer. it's private property and if a person wants to do it and alienate gun owners to shop or spend money that is their right to do so. >> he has not seen any loss of
6:50 am
business but has seen boy cots s and bad reviews. he says it's a statement worth making. it's a symbolic statement. we don't think by declaring gun free zones that is not going to end gun violence. it's a symbolic thing and in a battle symbolism has an effect and it's important. >> the anti-gun violence group washington ceasefire is coordinating this campaign. it's leader says groups in other parts of the country have approach them to get similar fridaprograms up and running. >> time for the sports here is farrah. he isehe iseshhesebastian vellee of winning. >> he is first with a few lapse to go. he will become the fourth man to
6:51 am
win four world tigh titles. red bull are also likely to claim the constructors construc. >> jorge has managed to win the grand prix. we will have to wait until next month season ending race to see who clinches the title. the honda rider will have to finish fourth or higher to clinch the championship. >> the win here at the home race we win the 200 meters for yamaha and winning after taking so many risks with it's a pleasure. >> the st. louis cardinals beat the red sox to take a 2-1 lead in the world series. there was a controversial end to game three.
6:52 am
>> in one of the most bi bizarre endings the cardinals take a lead by beating boston 5-4 in walk off fashion. but it was not without controversy. a rare obstruction call gave them a win. allan craig got tangled up at third base and he was awarded home plate and mobbed by his teammates. >> i'm not sure what happened, i just know we won. it was a great play by allan in the condition he is in and putting that effort in for the team and happy it worked out in our favor. >> a tough way to have a game end. particularly in this significance where wil is trying to dive inside to stop the throw. and when craig trips over him by the letter of the rule you can say it's obstruction. but like i said that is a tough pill to swallow. the cardinals with a 2-1 lead
6:53 am
and the next two games staying here at bush stadium. game four is sunday night at 8:15 p.m. it will be buc bucholtz versus e lim. >> barcelona beat royal madrid 2-1. it over shadows garrett valestls first appearance. renaldo went close. and as did benzima who replaced vale midway through the second period. but it was they got the crucial second goal. san chess witsanchez with the fy held on for the win. >> they go four points clear at the top of the table.
6:54 am
>> the only thing i wanted was the team to win the game. in the first half we were winning but not really in the way barcelona has done recently so when i realized the game was not going the way we wanted in the second half we made the changes we had to. >> defending english premiere champion manchester united had two late goals in a victory. peter clause put them ahead inside of five minutes. and the away team was 2-1 up. at half time. second half goals from rooney and he hernandez gave them a wi. win. >> arsenal beat crystal palace. liverpool are two points behind >> and sunday's big game in
6:55 am
england pits chelsea against manchester city chelsea will move back to second in the table and a win for city could see them going up to third. chelsea has not been beaten at home in 64 premier league games. >> it's a bi big team, yes. it's a very good team. but every match is a test and every match is three points. so it doesn't make a difference. >> of course it's important. it's always an important moment about playing against the team that has a lot of chance to win the premier league. i repeat, the same thing i said when we played against manchester united, it's a match of six points. they play at home and this is our third game playing away.
6:56 am
