the coronation weekend to have a kind of stability in thailand so you mentioned that yes there is still so much uncertainty about the election results but being that this is not an absolute monarch what type of power or influence if not direct power influence can the king have over giving people a sense of stability. there is a kind of a social media is a constitutional monarchy so it's a by law and. very much faith in the constitution and sovereignty belongs to the people but over the years i think of the last reigns his late majesty king also accumulated a lot of moral authority people to review of him and from that source of moral authority came some influence some unifying role this stabilizing role that the late king did play time and again a few times but it made a difference in some in the kind of restoring stability and peace when thailand needed it so in

4:16 pm
been hearing about virtual reality in movie making for a while the technology is yet to go mainstream christian salumi has more on the festival's efforts to change that. the technology on display in the virtual arcade at the try back a film festival is cutting edge from the headsets that allowed viewers to interact with the films to the latest projectors to display them. how hungry people need a leader but storytelling has been around as long as humans themselves and this animated film called cave which takes the viewer back to the days of talking around the campfire actually point the way to the future for virtual reality filmmaking the problem with g.r. is that in some sense everything is made as a movie for an audience of one so you get one percent of the time you get long lines and also people don't get to share it with their friends caves creators made a holographic virtual reality experience that can be shared by up to thirty people

4:19 pm
now local officials are saying is trying to get to those areas are most impacted by the storm damage most of the storm down damage we're hearing was because of the high winds yes there's flooding but most right now the biggest concern they're saying are clearing the roads so they can get to these communities that are now cut off including put it that is because there are so many trees that are down and so many power lines that are down and that is really proving to be a problem because one state official saying that there are certain areas that the hardest hit areas are completely without power and their power grid is completely destroyed earth korea has fired several projectiles off its east coast the south korean defense ministry said to detect that the launches but confirm they are not the listing missiles oxygene the u.s. and north korea about its nuclear program stalled in the leaders failed to reach an agreement during a meeting in february. one corn has been crowned as the country's monarch after

august and it's already the second deadliest ever keep it here inside story is next . a university degree to be a doctor or a teacher but without any study or exam one i want to east investigates the pakistani company at legibly selling fake degrades to the downs of the big around the world on al-jazeera. trapped and hungry in libya as opposing armies battle for control of tripoli thousands african refugees are in detention centers how do they end up there and as food and water runs out who's looking after them this is inside story. hello and welcome to the program i'm in wrong come on they enter libya illegally
4:22 pm
from all over africa hoping it's a stepping stone to starting a new life in europe that many a caught on this as dangerous and stressful journey they sent to detention centers in the suburbs of tripoli and other cities but the u.n. recognize government in the capital in charge of the refugees is fighting for its life trying to stop a takeover by warlord holly for half that so the refugees are trapped in detention centers where conditions are worsening most of the centers are in the suburbs of tripoli and housing thousands some of the centers became the frontline of the war to seize tripoli at least two migrants were killed last month when have to us forces attacked the southern districts of the capital the un moved hundreds of refugees to safety with government leaders in tripoli focused on controlling the capital some refugees on receiving the basics they need to survive out there has been told food and water supplies are running low one center with some refugees going days without anything to eat.
4:23 pm
let's bring in our panel in geneva we have charlie yaxley he's a spokesman for the u.n. refugee agency and storm all we have. is a libyan political analyst who was kidnapped in two thousand and seventeen by living gang and ended up in a government run detention facility and in brussels we have alberto knight hot he's a policy analyst at the european policy center researches of migration issues welcome to you all i'd like to begin with because in istanbul it most of it a very harrowing experience being in one of those government run detention centers can you just give us a sense of what it was like. well it was certainly horrible being kidnapped past midnight and taken by an armed gang to a facility that also housed some. immigrants. who was
4:24 pm
outside the government control at that time i suppose. until we managed to escape myself and two other prisoners so the conditions in the camp can you just give us an idea of what they were like then i never got the. view of the of the camp only of the room we were it was a window. a room with no windows the walls were covered with. dirt there were no facilities we the room was our bedroom our dining room and our bathroom as well until we escaped charley actually in geneva you work for the u.n. refugee agency conditions must have got worse since two thousand and seventeen when the solid because she was in that government detention facilities where they like
4:25 pm
metal. well even before the recent clashes for some months u.n.h.c.r. were calling for no refugees and migrants rescued at sea to be returned to the senses and part of the reason for that was because when when violence flares up in tripoli what we've seen is the times attention centers can be left dung god it with refugees locked inside insufficient provisions of water and in general there's been widespread reports of human rights violations curing inside these detention senses and the situation is particularly bad for those in the unofficial detention senses many of which are run by traffic is and smugglers and what we see there is people then there are very high risk of being being tortured even finding themselves sold into into slavery so really dire conditions here and nobody should be returned to
4:26 pm
anywhere in libya at this time can you just give us an idea charlie about the top the idea of the numbers we're talking about what kind of levels and what kind of numbers of people all of. well in recent weeks we've been desperately trying to evacuate people out of detention centers particularly those that are close to the hostilities we've been able to do that to some extent with some degree of success but they've been moved from one detention center to another detention center where the risks there are risks that remain particularly if the hostilities spread right now we have around three thousand refugees and migrants who remain in detention centers inside tripoli and we're really in a race against time where urging the international community to come forward with humanitarian corridors resettlement places whatever it takes to get people out of the situation but i'm not hot in brussels you've researched by gratian length can
4:27 pm
you just tell us what are the driving factors that make people risk winding up in one of these government detention centers in the outskirts of tripoli. absolutely and this is a crucial element that often times it's no analyzed in the discussion because the focus is on so-called pull factors to europe what the situation in libya now shows is that. then persons who try to reach europe who are willing to put their lives in danger. do not try to reach europe because of the social benefits or their housing policies of the member states of the european union but because they're trying to escape a situation where there are subject to abuse torture where they face were or even death so in istanbul it's
4:28 pm
a very lucrative business for the militias and the criminal gangs the incorporate with each other is there a connection between the militias in libya and criminal gangs and all they cooperating with each other. well well that you know from previous experiences around the world you know that whenever. there is a problem like the refugees there will be militias and criminal gangs that try to make some money out of it and it's no different in libya the government of national accord faces a lot of problems. some of it is because of lack of international support some of it is because of the europeans and their conflicts around immigration policy and some of it is due to internal politics and the support for example of the immoralities and the egyptians and the saudis of general have to who refuses to
4:29 pm
recognize the government of national accord and attacks it on every in every which way he can the latest of which is an attack on the capital which makes the national government. unable to fulfill its obligations towards these emigrants and towards its own citizens. charlie in geneva there is a war going on in libya for the capital tripoli that must make your job incredibly difficult to try and the u.n. refugee agency job incredibly difficult trying to people out how what are the real problems you're facing when it comes to the battle. i mean in the last few weeks alone we've had around forty five thousand people inside tripoli become displaced many of them have gone to stay with families outside the city but there are many others who are being forced to take shelter inside the city they're using schools and other community infrastructure as makeshift displacement sites but these are
4:30 pm
really holy unsuitable to provide for the humanitarian needs that people have a me humanitarian organizations doing our best to provide food clean water health care and other relief items but it's extremely challenging we have to make the most of pauses in fighting to rush aids to people as soon as we can at the same time a team's risking significant danger is in order to help people to get on planes to get them out of the detention senses in order to take part in these evacuation programs some of them we're taking to our gathering and departure facility but that's approaching its maximum capacity and will soon be full so really we're with really a race against time to get people the assistance they need to really more than anything we need to find a way to get people out as soon as possible tonight it's a race against time says charlie actually in geneva there is
4:31 pm
a security issue here for the european union isn't there's a real problem that the european union faces when it comes to dealing with this what could they be doing and what more should they be doing to try and solve this crisis. as it has been mentioned there is the possibility of setting up humanitarian corridors and we have seen in the in the past few days that some european states have established channels for the taint migrants to to rich europe about so fired these measures have been talk the solutions what we need is of course and more structured and more concerted approach to the situation in in libya what we also need is of course for those who in the future weeks and months will attempt to reach europe by crossing the
4:32 pm
mediterranean sea is there a possibility for intervention by european ships in search and rescue operations at the moment there are no european ships patrolling in that unsee which means that should there be an emergency the people who try to reach europe will be risking their lives and at the same time due to the situation political situation and to the armed conflict in libya there libyan coast guard is currently also not patrolling limited to danny and sea so absolutely i agree with charlie that we need of course to set up humanitarian corridors and the european union should do more to solve a situation which is currently getting worse and worse as we speak. so the other question is stumble there is a geo political element to all of this you mentioned saudi arabia the u.a.e.
4:33 pm
being key players in backing khalifa haftar and his attack on tripoli and then you have the un backed government in tripoli itself fighting effectively for its life why doesn't the european union the un place pressure on. the u.a.e. to stop their backing for a leaf i have to why do we have all of these players creating a situation that's leading to this refugee crisis. well first of all to go back to your guest's comment about finding a way to stablish humanitarian corridors and so on i mean before the current conflict we were faced with a lack of a unified. european policy on immigration now that smashed by a lack of european policy on how to deal with libya politically you see the conflict between the italians and the french and the french and the rest of europe
4:34 pm
and so on of course this lack of policy. has continued since mr mccone initiated the current round of appeasement. to have to or by inviting him to paris and given him the status of a statesman and so on and now mr mccone is busy with the vests and he wants a simple policy that's offered by his former minister mr logorrhea which is support a new dictator and get it over with so we have all these conflicts between the rest of the world and europe and within europe itself and also because of the immoralities and saudis and their preference with the egyptians to oppose the arab spring to oppose democracy in the area they see it as a danger and as a threat to their systems and that's why we have this conflict now and lack of
4:35 pm
coordination between all the players in the area now charlie partly your job your the u.n. or few j. agencies job is to deal with the situation as it is on the ground how are the root causes of this what's actually driving all of this. stumble just said to do with the european union to do with america to do with the u.a.e. and saudi arabia and their backing of various different factions in your conversations at the u.n. how much of that is a frustration. well i mean absolutely any any approach to what's happening in libya needs a holistic and comprehensive outlook that not only looks at the outcomes in terms of people attempting to cross the mediterranean and now the very pressing needs to get people out of the tension senses but we also need to look at what's happening in countries of origin and in countries of transit so that we look at the whole
4:36 pm
journey before people even get to live via in countries of origin more effort needs to be taken to to address the root causes the creating of violence and war we need to increase mediation efforts to bring warring parties to the table in dialogue to end conflict where exists and that also needs to be more support to countries throughout sub-saharan africa and north africa with their asylum systems and with development support so that they're better able to accommodate asylum seekers and refugees when they arrive in their countries but you talk about celerity a point as well it's really important the more is done to tackle the criminal networks and the smuggling networks thrive of people's despair in these situations they need to be held to account and they need to be you know held accountable in a court of law and their operation ceased if we're going to see
4:37 pm
a change. absolutely that's bringing in tonight hot in brussels is very interesting point that charlie actually makes in geneva when he talks about there needs to be more done about the criminal gangs now what's the european union's policy towards investigating these gangs in these networks. so currently. major operation in place by the european union which is operations for fia is directed at dismantling. the smugglers network what has to be said however is that as we have heard smugglers network are oftentimes tightly connected with official authorities so at the moment it is really hard to draw a line and i absolutely agreed that smugglers must be tried and it must be held accountable for their actions but it is also true that the ambiguity when it comes
4:38 pm
to the european union's policy towards libya is that oftentimes what are funded are no not libyan coast guard out ortiz but muggers themselves so it is really hard to unravel the complex libyan situation and draw a clear line at the moment so in istanbul it is a very complex situation within libya itself but the bottom line seems to be that a lot of people in libya are making a lot of money from these smuggling routes these people trafficking human trafficking routes how difficult then is it to dismantle those networks why isn't the u.n. back government been able to disrupt dismantle those networks. well you dismantle them but. by making sure that the root causes of this from of salt the root causes are in the countries of origin the guest just
4:39 pm
a transit point for example and i agree with your guest from brussels that when we talk about dismantling this criminal network i agree with that if you include in it also the regimes that are controlling those countries for example i'll give you an example the reports. are known about a get is in and nature and if it's a city its annual income from from this business is one hundred million a year in a country where the average the average wage is about the average income is about thirty dollars a month per individual this is this is a city where a lot of these migrants stay for a couple of days or a few days before they move on to libya and they move on to libya with the protection of government soldiers i mean. but this but these regimes are supported and mostly by france france is supporting
4:40 pm
a dictator that's been in power for over twenty years in chad a dictator has been in power for thirty three years in a nature and so also unless you solve the problem i mean the problem of the problem in libya cannot be addressed with the continuing. journeys of refugees year round from these countries of origin so there's an incredible amount of frustration in your voice there is you seem to be very angry about this do you think both the european union the wider world generally is taking the wrong approach to sorting out this migrant problem this refugee problem. they don't wonder if he she they don't they support dictatorships in africa they don't want to do any development in africa and then they complain and they fight among each other how could these countries that are poor. in terms of resources
4:41 pm
in terms of governance can solve this this issue libyans libyans are six million people with a lot of oil they don't need the migrant business to prosper but since the government is not doing anything because of european interference in iraq interference the war is going on so these criminal gangs flourish and do other business other than the business that's available in a country that stable with a lot of oil resources tell us in geneva do you think anybody's listening to the kind of opinion our guest in istanbul is saying but we have seen some progress in certain areas there are some seeds of hope for this i mean we've seen a handful of european countries who have come together and although it's on an ad hoc basis has happened now on a number of occasions where they've come forward to allow boats carrying people
4:42 pm
leaving libya to disembark and to share a distribution of the people on board we've also seen as other countries who have taken part in the evacuation and resettlement process is. you know this is just a drop in the ocean right now for what's needed and we don't have the luxury of time to wait for these to become more fleshed out we need a. europe wide approach that comes forward is rooted in those principles of compassion and humanity and respect for human rights that the european union was founded on to come forward with a fair and and just an equitable approach to this. but tonight how in brussels europe needs to step up this is what we seem to be hearing from both of our guests in istanbul and in geneva they need to do more but they're not doing more what's the what's the problem at the moment.
4:43 pm
that are several problems that probably have been for far too long set aside one of course as as it does me mentioned is we europe the european union has now been the able to develop a coherent foreign policy but when it comes to the specific needs of both migrants who are currently hand in detention centers or do those who transit across libya i think there the problem has been that there was no specific effort or success that addresses the problem of legal pathways to reach europe currently a person who wants to reach the european union to five an application for asylum doesn't have the possibility of reaching their european union safely or regularly
4:44 pm
so there we have a serious fault by the european union that number over and over again has not been able to reach a consensus over legal past way. and under problem of course is that ever since two thousand and fifteen that is the onset of this so-called migration prizes. many decisions have been taken but the overall goal has been to decrease the number of arrivals rather than finding a solution as has been mentioned rooted in the principles of protection of human rights and. we did goal in mind of respecting and fulfilling the obligation of member states under the geneva convention so there we have a lack of. long term and short or. on the part of the european union. member states have not been able to reach
4:45 pm

a million people across the state of addition were forced to evacuate their homes bonnie has left a trail of destruction uprooted trees and snapped power lines also at least eight people have been killed all the indian navy and coast guard do remain on high alert scott heiler has the latest from new delhi. even though this powerful cycling has lost most of its punch there's a lot of concern about these communities in eastern india they were hit particularly i know this is a state where it came ashore on friday morning there are certain communities that have been completely cut off now they're not too concerned officials here state officials and federal officials are not too concerned about human casualties in those areas because of this nasty of evacuation that started before the cycle came ashore over a million people were moved what they're focused on right now is the infrastructure because right now a lot of these areas are not possible the way to get in there is completely blocked off because of trees and power lines and the power lines are something they're greatly concerned about one state official said just
4:54 pm
a state official said that some areas the power grid is completely destroyed so that means it's going to be a lot of infrastructure that needs to be rebuilt now we know that navy and coast guard vessels are on the way to help with some of this rescue effort we also hear that prime minister modi will be heading to the area on monday ok so where do things stand with johnny now for that let's go to meteorologist everett and fox well i'm pleased to say that for the warning was issued around fifteen hours ago rachelle so the worst of the winds at least are over frankly the satellite picture you can see what's going on there this is around twelve thirty hours ago before the storm made landfall that clearly defined eye on the system swirling away there running up for poori pushing up across northern parts of addition and dissipating over land still a decent sized though that is a fair old size a good part of bangladesh still in the mix here let's take a look at some of the rainfall totals as it made landfall hundred eighty seven millimeters of rain twenty four hours there and go up or average for the entire
4:55 pm
month of may fifty four millimeters of rain so that is a lot of rainfall at this time if you push a little further inland hundred seventy seven millimeters of rain but when ashleigh here we would expect to see around sixty eight millimeters of rain again very very heavy rainfall nearly three times that may average rainfall out about about a month. about a saw hundred twelve millimeters of rain coming through here and then as it made its way further north was pushing up into west bengal hundred twelve millimeters of rain in twenty one hours she can still see that area cloud and so we have still got some more rain to contend with we are still concerned about something of a storm surge right at least inside of bangladesh but hopefully the worst of the winds have dissipated the system did move very quickly remember a sad state coming on into sunday seas are still pushing up across northern parts of bangladesh heavy rain there easing up into were poor and dry weather just talking behind it even east and possibly this could still see some very heavy
4:56 pm
rainfall them as we go on through sunday go on sunday into monday showers pretty much fading away by this day so dry a bride to weather does come through for things to improve quite smartly there is that strong wind still pushing its way and that eastern side of bangladesh and the concerns about the storm surge over the next few days is the kind of rainfall totals we're looking at maybe two hundred fifty millimeters of rain or shine every ten thank you weapons experts are trying to confirm the latest suspected rockets launched from north korea south korea's defense ministry says it detected several launches from the east coast of the korean peninsula the ministry says they were not ballistic missiles a suspected weapons test allow hours rather than a failure of the denuclearization sound that between ken jiang and internal tromp in february brought mcbride as the latest from seoul. this is turning out to be potentially one of the most provocative military gestures by north korea in more than a year and certainly not in keeping with the spirit of current moves at reconciliation
4:57 pm
between north korea and the us and north korea and south korea in the south korean government has said as much there has been a top level meeting of the security and military officials at which they've issued a statement saying that this test was inconsistent with the military agreement reached between north korea and south korea at the summit in pyongyang last september i'm calling on the north koreans to make every effort to actively participate and restart dialogue towards denuclearize ation so this very much seems to be placing at least some of the blame for the current stalemate on north korea's position the heat has started a flurry of diplomatic activity coming from the foreign minister of south korea has been in conversation with mike pompei of the united states and also the japanese foreign minister trying to coordinate a response on the watchword seems to be one of caution saying that they will

4:59 pm
and the bizarre situation that iran is facing is that it is now on the more sanctions now when it is actually abiding by international agreements then it was when it was accused of having violated international agreements it seems like the plan of the trump of mr asian is to essentially forced iranians to get out of the nuclear deal and once you're out other options open ups opens up for the. bolton. group within the white house and the option they seem to be gearing towards is a military option thailand's king corn has been crowned as the country's monarch after warning us father for two years. can ramattan place a seven point three zero crown on its head an elaborate coronation ceremony mixing buddhist and hindu tradition the sixty six year old succeeded his father and two thousand and sixteen ending
