12:04 am
civilians have been killed as of november and what's believed to have been the most deadly strike was at a wedding party in september 25th more than a 130 people were killed but witnesses said because of the scale of the destruction the death toll there was incredibly difficult to confirm when december 27000 more than 60 civilians were killed in 2 strikes on the same day the 1st had struck a crowded market entice province killing $54.00 civilians including 8 children the 2nd killed a family of 14 in the red sea province of hyundai death and then a last year in august at least 40 children were amongst more than 50 civilians killed when a bus was hit inside a $2800.00 report by the united nations found that some of the saudi led coalition strikes may amount to war crimes. well in southern yemen heavy fighting continues right now between government forces supported by saudi arabia and separatists backed by the united arab emirates the separatist say that they've regained control
12:05 am
of aden the port city which is the temporary capital of the un recognized government and have also been battles further east in shop where province government forces say they've taken the city of asm which was controlled by separatists find this well elizabeth kendall is senior research fellow at oxford university and earlier she spoke with my colleague peter deal the about the impact of the conflicts having the bombing the attack on this detention center all weapons store in the scheme of things post significant is that looking at the conflict between where we are today going back to 2015 the bombing on that detention center shows that all continues to rage in the north and that what's happening now in a south is simply gerry i don't want to distractions from the overall war but it's a stark reminder that very full targeting has been carried out by the saudi let the relation ship saying again and again in fact civilian targets or at least targets
12:06 am
where they're asked clearly and i think it's important to point out that while it may be true but that is what hiding weapons amongst civilian populations detainees that doesn't mean that there are legitimate targets that can be avoided but we have a good definitive proof of that as to what was actually going on in this i think as a former school or part of a university. it's going to be difficult to get definitive proof whilst the international community still relies on saudi arabia to investigate its own bombings i think what we need is a genuinely independent internationally led investigation explain to me elizabeth if you can we seem to be as well seeing a conflict within a conflict in southern yemen because we've got the saudi led coalition doing what it did what 36 hours ago at this detention center and yet when we blend in the separatists the loyalties seem to shift or mutate into being something else in the
12:07 am
southern half of the country that's right we now have the forces this a loyal to the yemeni government it's the forces that's a loyal to that coalition partners in the south actually at each other's throat so we do have now a war within a war and this is a potentially very explosive situation because it pits the north against the south in an old and very conflict prone fault line but it also has potential to spread inside the south and to invite you inside this up and that's a real worry because that flare up at any time when it comes to that flare up that you're talking about there would or could the separatists take on the host who sees and is that a fight that they would want to pursue. well listen i'm sort of have be changing
12:08 am
on the who feast in the course of this war what's happened now though is that the deputy of the sun transitional council at least has pulled back some and forces to the south to leave the war against the youth and help defend the south against the north but in all of this lost is the fact that this is not a transitional council it does not necessarily speak for the south it has the loudest voice and it's the best organized and best funded and it does predominate in aden but it's not a tool clear that it represents the interests of other stuff and either of those separatists such as those who have groups together here are the southern movements you are not aligned with the southern transitional council or indeed other groups in the south you don't want secession that will so things could flare up inside the south sparking all inside it all inside a wall the u.s. special envoy for afghanistan has met president ashraf ghani to discuss

some of them julie what all of this is the real live from doha also coming up you get ministers arrive at 10 downing street for an on shuttle cabinet meeting amid speculation boris johnson could call a snap general election. you had says it's time for accountability is more than 100 are feared dead in a saudi led air strike on a given prison. and remembering the father of a nation vietnam marks 50 years since the death of achievement. welcome to the program good to have your company hurricane dorian has been done created to a category 4 storm but it is still calls it widespread damage across the bahamas before heading to the united states the storm is one of the strongest atlantic weather systems on record the red cross says more than $13000.00 homes have been destroyed and it's expected to affect the bahamas through monday before heading
12:50 am
towards the united states well the prime minister of the bahamas has warned of unprecedented devastation it's damaging homes stunning power lines and flood waltzes are threatening some areas. the latest we've heard is that the hurricane is right now. and we expect heavily damage especially in grand mommas barco our red cross national society on ground has been preparing but obviously this is the heaviest hurricane to part of about and therefore we expect the humanitarian needs to be far beyond what preparations have made for before and will weather experts so hoping the hurricane will avoid a direct hits on the usa but millions of americans are worries and making last minute preparations landy gallagher is live for us in miami andy hi there the eye of the nation of the bahamas i think very few people know it i was side of you know the pictures on postcards but it's very much on prepared for a storm
12:51 am
a hurricane of this strength which looks like it's refusing to budge. yeah that's the big story at the moment from forecasters if you look at those satellite images you see it is perfect i came dorian harboring of a grand bahama hovering over nasa where people have taken to shelters it made landfall in a back a while and sunday and we're already hearing reports and i've seen some pretty disturbing videos on social media of people stuck on roofs as these huge. just come in and these winds obviously were up to 350 kilometers per hour 13000 homes destroyed as you heard the prime minister talking about and hurricane during could hold for over those are winds for the next 36 hours it's barely moving at the moment it has been downgraded to a category 4 but still a very dangerous very powerful storm humanitarian needs will be dire i think once this storm is passed the next big question is where does dorian go next as the edges closer towards where we are here in the southeast of florida now all the
12:52 am
projections are that it will take a shot right turn and run parallel to the coast of the east coast of florida but any deviation there and of course much of the state is still in the cone of uncertainty puts florida in danger not only florida georgia and the carolinas as well let's hear the latest from florida's governor rod to scientists. people need to remain vigilant if you're ordered to evacuate you need to do that from palm beach county all the way up to nassau the florida georgia border all those coastal counties they've issued evacuation orders and it's important that residents heed those calls get out now while you have time or there's fuel available and you'll be safe on the roads. and just how difficult is it right now for authorities to predict exactly what to do with all the vulnerable people in their communities because i'm guessing since still it has slowed dam so much it's probably impossible to tell exactly where it's going to go. well the science of all this is obviously
12:53 am
very cutting edge at the moment and all the models are in agreement that this storm will take a sharp right turn after it passes over the bahamas in the next 36 hours or so but that doesn't mean that we all safe in all these states up the southeast coast yet because this storm from its very inception has been highly unpredictable and sunday morning yesterday we increased in speed dramatically that wasn't really expected but there is an abundance of caution right now in florida at least 72 nursing homes have been evacuated remember 2 years ago during hurricane emma 12 residents died when conditioning units failed the authorities do not want to see that happen again the same thing is happening with hospitals in low lying areas but in mobile homes this is not going to be a fast event this could last for days dot's towards the end of next week. and the gallagher there live from miami and he. the un special rapporteur on extrajudicial
12:54 am
summary are arbitrary executions has just ended a 2 week visit to nigeria agnes comet has been looking at alleged abuses committed by security forces in the north and side where a separatist movement has been gaining ground will call marred is warning the nigerian government to address what she's calling a pressure cooker of violence that is claiming thousands of life a report also highlights excessive use of force by police leading to killings a lack of investigations and prosecutions for those committing human rights abuses says she found an absence of accountability and a lack of justice for victims well agnes calmar joins us live now from boucher agnes thank you very much for joining us on the program that is a pretty long list there tell us more about what you were visit to nigeria has uncovered i noticed the phrase in your press conference either airily or a pressure cooker of violence so what did you find.
12:55 am
well i could not really use any of the world's pressure cooker i have found localized and contrie wide part of value. in. and my. my main concern so. localized and country wide system so violence is that they are now taking place in a context characterized by population explosion by an increased number of people living in extreme poverty by the police farish and of weapons coming from 12 but the region of west africa. and by the environmentalists are the issues so dogs external pressure are a private on top of those ecosystems equal political systems of violence are reduced to conflagrate to explode.
12:56 am
in no way which i don't think we have yet completely understood so my pretty mean airy finding today was really to issue this this warning both to the government and to the international community there is in nigeria a pressure cooker that if it is unchecked could have reported affect. the regions and now is the time to prioritise the rule of law and accountability for the people of nigeria agnus you use the word crisis and said in your press conference that you know you don't want the government to protect this is not a crisis but how did they view the situation that you bring up in your report. well you will have to ask them i think i don't think i have made in the sharp or stark revelations to their government whether or not. authorities are willing
12:57 am
to admit the extent of the problem is a different matter but in all my meetings with the majority of my meetings with offshore there is an acknowledgment of the scale and the extent of the problems that give me some hope that the authorities rees the necessary leadership and political will will be able to begin a road map towards addressing the lack of accountability towards ensuring that killings particularly by the police but not only that all the killings are investigated that the systemic factors such as the lack of resources of the police or lack of training that all those resources all those resources issues are addressed let me remind you that
12:58 am
nigeria is a need only income country so i have parched the questions of arbitrary killings within that context and what i have found is not in keeping with what i would expect form a middle level country in middle income countries so agnes kalimat is is what you're saying that there are resources that can be put to work in solving some of these problems but the right priorities are perhaps not being made. yes i believe that at the moment the rule of law and that can to billy t. i've not been sufficiently prioritized i can't take for paul for the fact that in 20061 of my predecessors and went on a mission and when i compare what you have found with what i have found there are
12:59 am
so little differences between the 2 reports at least shocking they are 15 years apart so now is the time to prioritize the rule of law and that contra billy t. there is a securities issue in strategy to address many problems but security results are called to billet is not a solution for the long term i'm not even sure it's a solution for the shot just a containment policy of containment in 2019 when the contrary is confronting the globe or processes i have identified of population explosion increase poverty and vironment or degrade the issue that contentment policy is not going to work is not going to work so it is time more than time too much time has been wasted it is time to prioritize the rule of law and accountability for the people of nigeria particularly for the 49000000 that are living in extreme poverty
1:00 am
did you find that there was any positive change. yes yes i have found a few positive changes now for instance in the northeast you you were mentioning the conflict against boko haram in 20152016 that region was at the center of many concerns for human rights violations by boko haram of course but also by the security agencies there was a vast number of allegations of arbitrary killing disproportionate indiscriminate bomb being disappearances kill. study massive debts and costarred in fact now those problems have not been investigated and there is still not any accountability for those past violations but the
