of the health facilities of yemen have shut down and during that same time an estimated three million children were born out of those three million two million of them have been born out of hospital in the majority of them they have been born on this. earth. that. increases the risk of sanctions for the children and a magician would be one of the meijer this is now children one point eight million children and others in the country and out of almost four hundred thousand suffer severe acute malnutrition an estimated twenty five thousand children a year are dying at birth or shortly after many of those who survive are barely hanging on to life. so for them i offer that no matter what we do once they leave they will get sick again because they're not taking enough vitamins any bacteria
any disease will get to them there's no income no way for the parent to feed their children let alone getting medicine. yemen relies on its ports for food fuel and medical supplies under international pressure the saudi led coalition ease the blockade last month allowing goods to enter the ports for thirty days now the u.n. and humanitarian organizations are calling for access around the country and for ports to remain open the program is that if we continue to be. in a situation where the food cannot enter the country or. the country then we are going to. all the outbreaks this year or me. of the last year. the conflict in yemen is fragmented and polarized hopes of a political solution remain elusive but if and when this happens the trauma yemeni

they were lining up with the national flag one floor above diplomats lined up to highlight how the u.a.e. needs to improve its human rights one of the areas of concern in the recent u.n. report is arbitrary detention and torture that's something not done knows all about the u.s. lebanese business woman was arrested at his home in abu dhabi he still doesn't know why he held an unknown location and beaten over many months he was eventually convicted of supporting terrorism and based on a confession made under duress you know interrogators threatened to. to do things to my wife i couldn't i couldn't take it after the all the physical abuse was you know somehow following but when it came to that i know he was serious because whatever he said before he did. so i could not i told him you know whatever you want i'll sign anything. as
a side event at the un victims of abuse and their lawyers spoke out people like david hague as managing director of leeds united football club he travelled to the u.a.e. to resolve a business dispute he was thrown into jail where he says he was tortured and sexually abused he now works to get legal redress for people who've gone through similar experiences i've seen it time and time again when unscrupulous companies realize that the u.a.e. has a terribly weak and corrupt justice system open to manipulation and bribery and they use it as a litigation tool and it's happening time and time and time again so when it was happening to me i thought i was the only one but i've realised there are hundreds possibly thousands of others over the years the system of secret prisons remains that hasn't changed at all then the unfair trial processes once persons of brought two to regular prisons continues as well so there needs to be a root and branch of all of the whole system and they have the opportunity to do
that no. as part of its charm offensive here in geneva the u.a.e. is putting on a display of traditional amorality culture and in the session itself the minister of state for foreign affairs strongly defended his country's human rights record to the u.a.e. delegation said they were implementing previous recommendations like better support for foreign workers and tackling domestic violence but there was little of substance on areas such as ending torture or the death penalty for many international rights groups the u.a.e. has a long way to go to the barber al jazeera at the u.n. in geneva a german no so ready serving a life sentence for two murders has been charged over for the ninety seven deaths in two hospitals neons toggle was jailed in twenty fifteen for killing intensive care patients his admitted to injecting patients with drugs that cause heart failure so he could try to revive them. three members of the u.s. top gymnastics board have resigned amid an ongoing sex abuse scandal involving

try and fight for their place so all of this brings more bloodshed but analysts say there's another reason why the number of murders has gone up and that's that the government hasn't taken this on effectively since it's been in power in the first couple of years president pena nieto didn't really want to talk about the drug war then after a low the number of murders becoming creeping up again and still there wasn't really any coherent strategy apart from currying on doing what the previous administration had done those continue through two thousand and seventeen the government just passed a new security law which keeps the military on the streets instead of the full scale reform of the country's many police forces that experts say has been overdue for years now or into election year in mexico and so by june this is going to turn into someone else's problem and with over a decade of intense violence in the country it really has turned into a bit of a poisoned chalice. an erupting volcano has showered rocks on a japanese ski resort injuring more than a dozen people two of them seriously this was
