11:04 am
him while we follow behind a reporter is secretly filming the entire encounter. the 1st stop is a hotel which serves as a brothel to begin with the manager seems suspicious and denies having any prostitutes then he shows us pictures of a few women on his phone none of them seem to be wrecking. around 10 pm the pimp sends a rectangle woman to our hotel she's too scared to talk to us when we reveal we're journalists because she's worried the hotel might tell the pimps but she confirms she is a 23 year old wrecking a refugee she says she's a victim of her circumstances. back at the camp the sex worker we met earlier tells us 3 are not allowed to work and there have been several
11:05 am
police raids on hotels doubling as brothels she herself was recently released from jail. the os on it or not and if i can't find any other way to make money i'll have to go back to this work if i do i might get arrested again. but she's likely to take that risk again because for now she doesn't have a choice. and faced with such a bleak future bringing the women remain easy prey for the pimps and traffickers. and we are joined now by de w.'s arafat's all islam he is one of the reporters that you saw there in that piece and he also happens to be from bangladesh and you know you saw in that report one of the row hinge of women essentially saying she has no other choice she has to make money how desperate is the situation there the situation is quite despaired there because you know the most of the difficulties who came from myanmar into those. 17 are women and children so they are big in
11:06 am
number and they want to get involved with job opportunities or worse 2 on something so that they can meet they can meet and meets but it is not possible to do for them apart from providing relief by n.g.o.s and internationally isn't it surely the bangladeshi authorities are aware of the situation what was your experience in interacting with them and how are they dealing with it i was there 2 years ago and that i saw that there is where you coming attitude towards. in bangladesh but what happened last time when i was there with 2 of my colleagues i saw their. creation after going on and it totally failed and then the foreign minister responded very angrily angrily saying that we have to reduce their i mean benefits things they are getting there so we have to make something so that they agree to return at some point so now that the situation is more like one of these government wants to wants
11:07 am
to contribute of them they don't want to provide any kind of support to us because the government doesn't recall. as if you choose and when they don't. they don't get any benefit fed to the food she is should get according to international law so there are no no other alternatives for these women they don't have because there is no other employment opportunities or anything i mean personally i think they should have some kind of. war the women can walk and i'm something out of it because they have. kind of living in you know what. but not many opportunities to spend time in the opportunities to own something to work so there should be some opportunities by the government open of this or especially for women and they don't become and i imagine that many of these you know people just don't want to go back to me on mars specially given. how they were forced out of
11:08 am
the country yeah well we talked to too many of the refuse ears and react to this basic question whether they want to return or not what we've found that they want to take on and that's why they are staying near the border area but they have some specific demands that they want to myanmar government the recognize them as to provide them citizenship of myanmar also their wants safety and security in iraq i need so if these are provided these are insured then they will only interested in going to the country if they think they belong to. our fattal islam thank you so much for your reporting. in washington speculation is rife that president donald trump's firing of its national security adviser john bolton could signal a shift in u.s. foreign policy announcing the latest white house sacking on twitter the president said that he disagreed strongly with bolton on many issues bolton was a hard liner on several of those issues he gave
11:09 am
a different version of events saying he'd offered his resignation. john bolton in happier times seated at the president's side an influential proponent of a hawkish foreign policy. but his tenure as national security adviser came to an end when trump took to twitter to announce his departure the president tweeted that he strongly disagreed with many of bolton's suggestions prompting trump to ask for his resignation bolton quickly disputed this version of events in turn tweeting that he had offered to resign in of his own accord is not the 1st time trump bolton have disagreed the former adviser stood for a muscular approach to foreign relations a known hardliner he favored military intervention in iran north korea and venezuela but despite his aggressive rhetoric trump often chose diplomacy over confrontation. he has met north korea's leader kim jong gone and was prepared to
11:10 am
strike a peace deal with the taliban in afghanistan. bolton's departure has fueled speculation that u.s. foreign policy could mellow. but senior administration of figures cautioned against the idea that someone asked what would the policy be different absent any individual being here is a been the president's policies but i don't think any leader around the world should make any assumption that because someone of us of hearts that president trumps foreign policy will change in a materialize sanctions designed to pressure iran into concessions over its nuclear program a likely to remain in place. i would say secretary of. health and the president are completely aligned on our maximum pressure campaign i think you know we've done more sanctions on iran than anybody and it's absolutely working and you're right even as bolton became the national security adviser to serve under president trump
11:11 am
brushed off suggestions that the national security team was in disarray absolutely not that's the most ridiculous question i have ever heard are you going to say that this is are you going to but bolton is unlikely to be the last official to find himself going out of the revolving door of trump's white house. let's get a quick check of some other stories making news around the world north korea's state on television has cropped cast pictures of its leader kim jong un overseeing the testing of a multiple rocket launcher a launch took place only hours after the north offer to resume nuclear diplomacy with the united states would source. israel's prime minister benjamin netanyahu has promised to annex large parts of the occupied west bank if he wins a national election next week the area is claimed by the palestinians as a future independent state the arab league has denounced the plan calling it quote a dangerous development. the body of robert mugabe is on its way back to karate
