3:07 pm
assembly really has a focus on women and young people so in addition to bringing these very senior religious leaders they have a chance to listen to the young people that are here and listen to the women that are here because these 2 groups are often the 1st a the 1st to be affected when when conflict breaks out at any part of the world one could see that that was really the message of the assembly today as it was there was the opening address by president bush time mayor but also there was a interim faith prayer by children and basically they pleaded to the world leaders that they that they that they pay attention to the decisions that they're making because at the end of the day it is their generation that has to bear the brunt of these decisions essentially and i are defeat it seems and also be discussing how to protect places of worship at a time when attacks on some science appear to be on the rise before we talk for the let's take a look at how some religious science has been targeted. disbelief
3:08 pm
in christ church new zealand. it's march 29000 and a white supremacist has just shot dead 51 people in consecutive attacks at a mosque and an islamic center in the city. what is especially horrific many of the victims were killed or injured while praying the mosque a place of peace turned into a site of slaughter soon after the u.n. secretary general makes this play i am making a global call kenya for the sanctity of all places of worship and the safety of all worshippers who views it reverent sides 1 in a spirit of compassion and dollars. people everywhere must be allowed to observe and practice their face in peace. yet just several weeks later on easter sunday terrorists carry out attacks in lanka among the targets

a christian churches nearly 260 people are killed. churches or other places of worship are not immune from violence on the contrary attacks on religious sites are commonplace all over the world. in october 28th teen a gunman killed 11 people cheering prayers at a synagogue in pittsburgh pennsylvania it saw terrorists target congregations to kill as many people as possible but killing people at their place of worship also sends another message that religious communities are at risk even when they're remotely supposed to be a place of sanctuary. was. so high as we saw places of worship are coming under attack the delegates of many big problems to deal with now what is being planned there how to deal with these issues today. well every time i mean almost all of the delegates that i've spoken to today they are aware of the
3:10 pm
size of the problems that the regions face because of faith at times and it seems that these challenges are being tackled head on in at the conference here there are so-called peace consultations that are be go at that are going to take place throughout the 4 days of the conference and they bring senior religious leaders from countries that are now in conflict because of religion so one peace consultation will be between me and maher and bangladesh to discuss the crisis and the possible conditions for the return of these refugees and another consultation involves north korea and south korean religious leaders to try and see what can be done to create a nuclear free korean peninsula of course these are very high level talks with very senior religious leaders and it remains to be seen how they might translate into action but the workshop but the assembly is also organizing a number of workshops that have to do more with the grassroots level i met women
3:11 pm
yesterday from the middle east and north africa region who have recently. launched an initiative in jordan a solidarity initiative to empower syrian refugee women not the so that they wouldn't feel excluded from the host who society so i as you said this is an interfaith gathering what are they collectively hoping to achieve what is the key message that they want to give to the world. i think that for many of the delegates that i've spoken to you know they are kind of they're not happy with the fact that religion is often perceived as a precursor of conflict and violence and they want to come together to try according to them to find the commonalities between the multiple religions that are represented here at the assembly but also it's very action oriented so you have a lot of young people here that are attending workshops yesterday i got to attend one for young religious leaders to better to use social media to send their message
3:12 pm
but also some of the women that i met yesterday said you know it's important for especially from the middle east that we have this ability that we come here and that we are able to network with other women of faith from across the world to see that you know we can make a change with our religion. right i am at the religion school peace assembly in lindau southern germany thank you very much. you're watching the news coming up ahead goal is at the heart of an election campaign in the german student got it but it's the major employer look at how the far right if t. is fighting to keep the industry going against government plans to close it down. but 1st in a landmark case in the door a young woman whose baby was found dead off she gave birth has been cleared of mud a village and none this has always maintained her innocence she says she did not
