12:02 pm
a sea of containment shows little care for the consequences for those trapped in libya one example given is the funding by e.u. governments of the libyan coast guard to intercept migrants see these refugees are then sent to detention centers where they suffer abuse and exploitation there are nearly twenty thousand people and they have a crowd of buildings the report also says that the u. is aware of corruption within libya's coast guard accusing it of working with human smugglers ok let's speak to my food i will head our correspondent who's standing by in tripoli i mean how is this going down with libyan authorities how do they say about this. will libyan authorities have been trying to refute to refute all these accusations saying that first of all it's the right of the libya's coast guard to risky with these migrants because they have saved off libyan sure's and they are sailing to europe via libya
12:03 pm
and to to water as long as they are in libyan territory lot of us so the job libya's called coast guard job to do is to prevent these migrants as they say and bring them to detention centers in libya and now also in the detention centers supervisors there that we spoke to say that. also they're trying to refute all these accusations but see that sometimes violent or confrontational when migrants when some migrants get confrontational with security individuals then they have to discipline them as they say now as they also say that with the economic collapse and financial collapse in the country they they take care of these migrants and they provide them with health care and provide them with with catering with everything and now but what happens on the way to the shore of the desert when they're migrants are was people smugglers maybe all these accusations all
12:04 pm
these allegations happen because most of these people are smugglers they're outlaws as you know nic now the libyan authorities also say that the political division in the country is one of the reason why the security vacuum is. leading to this some violations against. migrants and yet despite all the challenges despite all the all the troubles that they face the coupon coming it's still bad and it's getting worse. exactly because in this hour with the libyan borders with the african countries with chad was new it was. algeria even its very specious borders and it's on one or two of the now with migrants to take advantage of these
12:05 pm
unmonitored. borders and also last may the third force that's the. security force affiliated to the un backed government of national accord was that all from the south after the forces loyal to it in the good general theory for have to talk over. some strategic locations so since last may since that force was drawn from the south we have been hearing about a lot of accusation a lot of all these violations against migrants and even human trafficking in the south also the power vacuum in the south and the return of. affiliates in the cells of the new all of them and conflict between the tribes in the cells all these power vacuum and security and economic collapse in the south have led to trade which is their human trafficking and smuggling of way works has become
12:06 pm
a groom trade in the south also after the italian navy. navy ships have come to the libyan to a lot of us do good with this migration crazes now all these migrants who have been trying to cross deserves to the mediterranean they have been put in waiting in waiting centers in cells and in central libya so that's one of the reason why this crisis has been excessive beating recently nic and our blog and we'll leave it there thanks very much for the good reporting. turkey is expected to finalize a two billion dollars deal with russia to buy the s. four hundred surface to air missile system you know it was made of a joint news conference between president vladimir putin of russia type turkey's ties with russia has become stronger in the past year and many see the new defense still as a sign of weakening relations with nato deal with an l. substitute in may the whistle stop tour of the middle east this morning from her.
12:07 pm
reaction to president announcement has been swift there is a feeling of accomplishment here in turkey that turkey on the verge of signing a deal to parties and defense system as four hundred missile defense system from russia of course this is not going to come as good news to need to which has been cruelly following the deal between turkey and russia the united states has over the years been encouraging turkey to buy its own defense system to. turkey say it's highly prized and it doesn't know how much technology america was ready to part with in this in purchasing department ms now all this just shows how fraught relations between turkey and other nato members but say is that you have the right to shop for ms the defense equipment where ever it
12:08 pm

12:09 pm
a new government policy saw her and her husband lose twenty percent of their salaries only to be returned if they leave israel they've both been imprisoned in the native eritrea returning there they say would be impossible the alternative rwanda unsafe i don't have any choice i am going to get i cannot fall and because i have small kids. i want to be in. whether he kill me i know i don't want to go back to africa that choice jail or a third country widely thought to be rwanda is precisely the one israel's prime minister is now presenting his government policy benjamin netanyahu recently told cabinet colleagues that he'd secured an international deal allowing for in force deportations of more than thirty five thousand africans. it would also speed the closure of the isolated hole at the tension center in the southern negev desert thousands of african migrants have been sent here in what campaign groups call a deliberate policy of making their lives as miserable as possible even running at
12:10 pm
maximum capacity how it could only house about ten percent of the african asylum seekers in this country this policy these announcements are much more targeted at those who live in communities like this part of israel's open policy of trying to force them to leave salaam says she was brought to israel against her will by people smugglers extorting her family she's found work as a translator and advocacy group assaf asylum application has she says gone unanswered since it was filed two years ago and it's not the only one they slowly shift as what israel has the right and a duty to say who is a refugee and who is not however israel still hasn't done so we definitely say that not every city knees or it deserves the status of refugees but the issue here is that out of forty thousand of them only ten have been recognized as refugees israel's prime minister defines the rest as illegal infiltrators his reported deal with the rwandan president would see israel pay five thousand u.s.
12:11 pm
dollars to rwanda for every deportee accepted and of course game we are here on a mission and the mission is to give southern tell of the back to the citizens of israel israeli government itself delivered the migrants to this already deprived neighborhood but now it remains their precarious home where the message only gets louder with every repetition they aren't welcome here are a force that i'll just tell of it. world leaders are meeting in paris for a special climate summit convened by the french president tomorrow. it's hoped the gathering will encourage much needed funding to accelerate efforts to combat global warming follows a u.s. decision to pull out of the two thousand and fifteen climate accord president trump will not be attending neither will the leaders of china and india even about two years since two hundred nations nearly two hundred nations signed the paris agreement i join us now from paris is a correspondent to natasha but there are no touches it's a fine and definitely the main thing. yes finance is definitely the main
12:12 pm
theme of this one planet summit you know back in twenty fifteen you had two hundred world leaders gathered right here in paris and they promised to limit global warming to under two degrees celsius but the thing is two years on it's apparent that that is not going to happen unless there is some serious money spent and some real action taken that is one of the reasons that the french president about all my home along with the united nations the world bank of decided to really focus on the financial aspects here at this summit and what we're expecting is for them to try and make those here feel some of those promises that were made back in twenty fifteen some of those green funding promises especially to developing countries and also look at ways that public and private money can be better used in the fight against global warming it's about changing mindsets as well we're told it's about trying to do things like make companies businesses governments leaders really think
12:13 pm
about the fight against climate change with every penny that they spend whether it's on services on goods on products and that is something that the u.n. climate change boss told us here in paris. about changing their financial structure the way their financial structure works making sure that every decision. that relates to financing and towards supporting. projects and supporting actions that are oriented towards a no carbon development and it. is not that much of a blow to president. know donald trump i was an advisor that's what we're told and no surprise considering he decided to pull the us out of the paris accord but that was one of the reasons that the french president actually decided to hold this summit is about saying look the u.s. maybe out but that doesn't mean that the fight against climate change is over
12:14 pm
anything boss in fact wants to try and take the lead here he was trying to put europe at the forefront and there are american cia that are scientists there are leaders there are n.g.o.s there are big names like almost all to make up and then orders caprio but there's no doubt that everybody here knows that the u.s. not being in this accord not being part of this at a government level does leave a massive gap in green funding and that's something that will be discussed a ways to try to make up that shortfall on the treasure thanks very much dana touch about the reporting there from perth. still ahead here on al-jazeera fears of a diptheria outbreak among working your refugees living in camps plus. if we dare to dream big. a president trump and not just america will soon send them astronauts to the move again.
