able to kill you not only the people be killing the end of the killing the design the people the killing the people who love it and even become a speaks well in that. the violence coincided with me on mars armed forces holiday . while general celebrated with a military parade security forces were opening fire indiscriminately on the streets it was the defense chiefs of 12 nations have released a joint statement denouncing the hunters massacre of civilians but rights groups want to see more than words from the international community given the military strike record. this is a military that's had a long history of impunity and committing tragedies against its people and difference is this time around has seen photographs coming out in real time we can say we didn't know what was happening. despite the killings there's little sign that protesters are going home on sunday they built barricades to stave off security forces and yet gone they're not prepared to let the generals keep control

of their country. well tom enders is the u.n. special envoy for me and maher he joins us live now from washington d.c. thank you very much indeed for being here with us on the news that tensions continue to grow on the streets more than 100 people were killed yesterday how much further will this escalates lord only knows i mean this regime. this this military has shown that it has no limits on its level of challenge and its willingness to commit mass murder against its own people these are people that it should be defending and it's true on them and as it is killing them and if they should rethink where it is where this leads and would you say the international community has failed the people of myanmar. i think the international community has not done enough there have been voices she became very loudly of condemnation to stern. that's fine as far as it goes that quite frankly i think those words are
9:04 pm
ringing hollow with inside of me and more everyone i'm speaking with they want to see a focused unified international action like the secretary general has called for and i think that means convening convening immediately the united nations security council have this open debate on it because actually what the obligations of the international community should be and let nations of the security council stand up and be counted i think there also has to be among those nations willing to take action right now a coalition everybody there has to be unified coordinated sanctions a unified coordinated arms embargo and i think we have to take and it immediately institute accountability mechanisms traditional mechanisms to hold these brutal leaders accountable for the mass atrocities that were pushing i think clearly we have crimes against humanity being caused and committed right across right in front
9:05 pm
of our very eyes and the question right now is what the international community is willing to do about it almost anders when you see russian and chinese officials supporting what's happening and for example moscow's deputy defense minister even visiting the minutes for yesterday does this not frustrate any form of international attempt to keep the. ball get them from backing down. well of course it does the fact is we have not yet had vote in the security council security council has not had this crisis but certainly on its agenda and before that's exactly what has to have if russia or china or anyone else on the security council wants to veto or vote against foreign action ok stand up and do that but at least we need to be able to see where nations stand if you're on the security council you have an obligation to take action and least precise circumstances and if you're not willing to do it ok then countries around the world who are willing to take action
9:06 pm
need to work together in coordinated action and calling for an emergency summit of those nations to force together a coordinated approach in which the various actions are linked together to have the strongest possible impact on this on this brutal military regime what do you think can be done to hold those accountable for human rights violations and also. go on trial for mass murder. i think there should be accountability there's no question about it there should be judicial mechanisms in place the international criminal court certainly there's universal jurisdiction regimes in many countries any one of those should be implemented but at the immediate moment right now we need to cut off revenue that the 100 has flowing into its coffers that is literally stealing from the people of myanmar and using that money to purchase weapons of war and give themselves the means to commit the this this these horrendous acts and we have to cut that revenue off you've got to cut off all access to to to what and to
9:07 pm
the greatest extent to death possible to make sure that revenue going into transit develop major humanitarian aid is not going to want to but through c.s. those organizations humanitarian aid is a sions on the ground there are a number of actions steps that we can take that the international community is not taking and must take mediately if words of concern are not going to be more than just just words to the people of the me right that's un special rockets on man mark tom andrews thank you very much indeed for joining us here on news my pleasure let's have a look at other stories making headlines around the world and john is off still on able to free the container ship stuck in the swiss canal tens of billions of dollars in cargo have been held up for days egypt's president has told authorities to remove containers from the ground ever given to make it easy it's refocus the vessel. thousands of climate change campaigners have rallied in paris the french
