facing abuse in detention camps the plan has been drawn up as a joint e.u. african union summit in ivory coast it's not clear how the deal will be enforced but migrants are expected to be sent back mainly to their home countries the touch about to report from abidjan. well the theme of this summit was huge but there is no doubt the from the outset it was dominated by the issue of the refugee slave trade in the bia and by migration we heard from the host of the summit the president of the ivory coast in the beginning who said that everyone had a collective responsibility to do something when at the end of the summit what leaders decided is that they would try and repatch reate those migrants and refugees that are trapped in libya that they had also launched a task force to try and crack down on people smuggling we spoke to many people here who said that that is just a case of firefighting and what is really needed is a long term strategy to deal with migration. african and

9:04 pm
the same time we have to stop to get illegal migration this is. a common obligation used workers say until young people have real opportunities little change we want next time african leaders in reply leaders to come together and say we are going to support two hundred five hundred one cause you have stocked up but from africa and from europe and here are the resources that we put in place those are practical things to do is you know of telling us in the declaration that yes we are going to empower the people but how are we going to empower the people there's no doubt that ending the slave trade is an urgent priority but unless gnostic solutions are found to persuade people to stop leaving home in the first place human rights abuses will continue to affect africa's most fun noble this was
9:05 pm
the first summit between these two organizations there were more than eighty leaders here from the african and european union's and what they said was that this is really an opportunity for a new era in relations one that was far more equal in a sense it was a an attempt to try to redress the balance of the past but one more many experts have told us is that for as long as the european union continues to pour aid money into africa it is going to be very difficult to do that. many of those refugees gathering in libya are trying to find their way to europe with those who do manage to make it across landing in greece. in the number of people arriving on the island of less force is severely straining emergency facilities conditions are so dire that some refugees are resorting to self harm in the hope of being taken out his journey home now reports in the third part of our series from lesbos. in a busy cafe outside the main refugee camp on lesbos island. to tell stories of
9:06 pm
self harm and abuse on your way out of. had been absent i know of some people who cut themselves so that doctors can see there and let them go along with the body of the. people have been here for more than a year and they are tired and psychologically and well they will hurt themselves in any way just so they can leave this island inside the camp more than six thousand people share facilities designed for just a third of that number in conditions that appear to be in breach of their human rights many have severe medical problems a man with little bolts of his knees. a husband whose wife is about to give birth. the letter says this gentleman has had two recent hospital admissions in mytilene with chest pain it sounds like he has significant coronary artery disease. but there is no easy ticket out of this place or off unless by silent the asylum
9:07 pm
process can take each year or more it's you and therefore greek government policy now to stem the tide of refugees into europe we've heard stories about people. making themselves sick have you heard these stories can you confirm that they're so it's true they do these things that quite common all the time we hear it those sorts of injuries and that they have various problems with their health but it's something we've become used to and i've been here for years at this camp and for all the years i've been here this is been going on. the words there of the camps doctor and surprised he says at the lengths people are prepared to go to because of the conditions here that that senior members of the european commission have visited this camp and nothing changed even the greek health minister has visited this camp and nothing changed the medical charity dog. because without borders concentrates on mental health and sexual violence inside the camp if this
9:08 pm
horrendous and it is unacceptable so for me the question will be. what is pushing people to take this measures this extreme measures. and what do you think that the policy it is that you probably since today they're pushing people to to complete them on this their nighttime temperatures here in single figures and yet these are some attempts there's no hot water nothing but wood fire to protect families from the cold in conditions like these the sick get sick and the desperate do desperate things jona how al-jazeera lesbos greeks. the u.k. prime minister to resign may has again condemned the us president for sharing anti muslim videos jumper's hit back by telling may to focus on tackling terrorism in her country barnaby phillips reports from westminster in central london. on
9:09 pm
a tour of the middle east forging a post breck's it rolls for britain in the world this is not what the prime minister wanted to be talking about the fact that we work together does not mean that we're afraid to say when we think the united states got it wrong and to be very clear with them and i'm very clear that retreating from britain first was the wrong thing to do. back home in london the government argues that britain's ties with america military cultural diplomatic of what make the special relationship and this will endure long after the current president has gone the prime minister will always have regular calls with the president and she has been explicit in criticizing this tweet and i know that she will always make sure that she calls it out where she sees it and that is what she's done here. but a tweet from another minister who is a muslim made it clear the president had hit
9:10 pm
a raw nerve. donald trump has upset a lot of people here in westminster in fearing he still invited to london on a state visit that would involve the queen in practice it's very hard to see that visit happening any time soon the president has provided a huge probably steve bruce to a fringe far right movement britain first which has never come remotely close to success in any form of election here in the u.k. . britain first wants to end immigration and ban islam in the u.k. and the fascist groups believe it has about one thousand members. it's deputy leader jade a friend whose tweets were retreated by the president is facing charges of using threatening and abusive language she's thanked the president for retreating her messages to his more than forty three million followers saying god bless you trump god bless america barnaby phillips al-jazeera westminster well let's get the
9:11 pm
american perspective on this from our white house correspondent can really help me what is the white house saying about the fact there is such a round. the white house has been relatively muted on thursday it's letting the comments that it made late on wednesday stand essentially from both the press secretary sarah sanders as well as the deputy press secretary raj shah that they believe the position of the trumpet ministration is that there is a legitimate security issue to be discussed in the midst of this and there has often been this sort of resignation by the trumpet ministration that there is a recognition that it really can't in any way control what the president does on social media in fact just the opposite doubling down on that position telling reporters in fact that the president may continue to talk and tweet about this issue as we saw late on wednesday the president pointing the finger at theresa may
9:12 pm
saying don't focus on me focus on the threat inside the united kingdom here's the problem for the president all of this though as we're now into day two of this controversy what is being focused on if the administration wants to talk policy is a policy victory that he may be poised to have in the u.s. senate that is what we are expecting would be the headline this vote in the senate on comprehensive tax reform the president desperately needs a legislative victory it looks like he may be getting one but no one is talking about it because of the president's own actions on social media can i just wish more rumors of a shake up of the trump team and the suggestion that he may well be about to replace secretary of state rex tillerson is this what you're hearing to. right this is long been something that we've been hearing and so we've been feeling for some time that this was an imminent announcement now we're getting the sense that this may really be about to happen given the fact that we've known for some time there's been a strained relationship between the secretary of state rex tillerson and the president
9:13 pm
they've differed on a number of key issues the iran nuclear agreement on north korea and of course then over the summer we had that hastily called press conference by the secretary of state after there was reporting that he had in a meeting called the president a moron in that press conference he said the relationship between him and the president was very solid but he didn't deny the name calling so certainly there has been this sort of from our standpoint we've been watching it expecting this to happen now we are hearing in fact that there is a plan being put in place perhaps to have the secretary of state leave by the end of the year replaced by the current cia director mike pompei o but when asked about this directly by reporters in the oval office the president was relatively vague he just said he's here rex's here that was echoed by the white house press secretary in the last hour cyrus huckabee sanders in fact saying that the president's statement speaks for itself and there are no personnel announcements expected at
9:14 pm
this time many things can really help him out with the latest from the workhouse. staying in america. traitor to guilty to money laundering and helping iran to evade u.s. sanctions sold in new york or the president who on it was prime minister at the time approved the transaction well question salome is following developments for us and what was coming out in court today about this case chris and. some really sensational information here soon let me back up and start by reminding our viewers that reza zahra because turkish. the iranian gold trader is one of nine people that u.s. prosecutors have charged in the scheme to violate sanctions against iran here in the united states in the one of only two people to be arrested in the united states and face charges and the other person is on trial he's
9:15 pm
a banker with the state owned how the bank in turkey a man by the name. until but it really feels like the government of turkey has been on trial here in the manhattan courtroom for the last couple days with zurab on the trial he did testify. he's pleaded guilty to a scheme for evading sanctions against iran and is testifying against it and in that testimony he has said that it was the president of church recip tired who was prime minister at the time that he personally authorized some of these transactions . again the government here very much figuring into the trial yesterday zurab claimed that he had agreed to pay fifty percent of the profits from the scheme to the former economy minister. so very closely watched trial lots of turkish media in the courtroom watching what's
9:16 pm
happening here zurab also described how that scheme worked in great t.j. . from the witness stand talking about how he traded gold and made fake food purchases as front companies in order for iran to be able to spend its oil reserves abroad something that it was being stopped from doing because of the sanctions here in the united states and i can only imagine what this is doing for us to at the moment. well we know that president has been lobbying the united states administration to get this trial thrown out it started under president obama the lobbying continued under president trial and error one has said that flat out the country did not violate the sanctions but it does have legitimate trade in business ties with iran his deputy prime minister is saying that the united states is doing this to destroy the credibility of turkey to
9:17 pm
destroy the credibility of the president they've accused the judge in the case and the prosecutors of having ties to. the ousted cleric who's blamed for attempted coup in turkey last year so needless to say this is not improving relations between turkey and the united states many thanks for that with the very latest on that cold case in new york. as much more to calm hair only al jazeera news hour. pope francis calls for decisive measures to help or hinder refugees but he stopped short of calling them. become a hero for some but just how did a bosnian croat war criminal managed to smuggle poison into a u.n. call it an investigation is launched. and in sports we'll tell you. his biggest club football competition.

to explore a freeze for freeze scenario in which north korea would slow its missile program if the u.s. and south korea lowered their military posture on the peninsula this position supported by russia in the booklet with what we proposed a solution based along the principle of suspension for suspension which in visions of d.p. r. k. stopping missile tests while at the same time the u.s. and south korea decreasing the scale of their military exercises this in turn will pave the way for the principles of peaceful coexistence and peaceful discussions between washington and pyongyang. but this has been repeatedly and vehemently ruled out by the u.s. another round of joint exercises between the u.s. and south korean military forces are due to start here next week north korea has said the drills are a rehearsal for war at the united nations america's ambassador has said the u.s. doesn't seek war but if it does start north korea's leaders would be in her words

9:34 pm
veteran how did he bring in the bottle. while the muslim member of the country's shared presidency defended the verdict. that most i think up there in the joint criminal enterprise in the very day that led him to do what he did but in croatia the prime minister said probably suicide spoke of what he called a deep moral injustice. this is an event without precedent especially for an international courtroom who has in his own way sent a message on what he thinks about addict which we also think is unfair for the country's president the verdict should mean the start of a new era. as croatian president i will do everything so this verdict doesn't ruin relations between both gratian and i will visit bosnia as soon as possible but back in march star me and cry out reaction served as a warning. not to. be in a fair trial in the hague it would have contributed to peace in bosnia but as it
