12:03 pm
laws that. some of them they told me that actually this measure will deter those relatively peaceful protesters from taking to the streets because they fear the white the white terror now in the city. but on the contrary photo valentino's has the war to target all the government some of the radical protesters actually told me that this is not going to deter them from taking any volunteer or going on the streets anymore that they're not going to stop their actions that just because of this law because but them is not the big deal for them to validate and other piece of law so whether this will be like and really a very effective measure to stop the fall is to claim by to come a government is still in doubt and some of the activists they also submits judicial review to the court are ready to challenge the government's decision because they think this is unconstitutional that it mate validates the city main is under the
12:04 pm
constitution and also the human rights law in hong kong so some of they they want to stop the enactment off the law by legal means so some of them have taken this matter to the courts but how this police meanwhile enforce the ban on face mosques because as we could some people are defying this ban and still reading mosques. while. these laws not only to ban people from wearing mouse but also to greater power to the police to conduct searching like under the under the new law the police can search anyone and they can we quiet any want to remove the mosque late doing searching so if anyone refused the request of the police so it will be considered as breaking the law and they will face prison sentence for up to 6 months so this is not
12:05 pm
a law not only going to affect those are participating in public assam police but literally anyway and anyone with mosques that refuse to comply with the request of the police should be with the authorities taking such a strong line not just against protesters as you said is that a fear of this good lead to clashes and violence. yeah we say young doubt there will be clashes for the rest of the day because. you have mentioned earlier in the reports we can see protesters already there gathering i on the streets before tea and off the press conference of the government so there are more sam please call on line 2 to be taken part in various districts it reaches across hong kong tonight so. we expect that the turnout off these protests will be huge tonight because people will like come out to express their anger to us
12:06 pm

12:08 pm

a problem with anyone. but problems in moria hard to avoid a fire broke out at the end of september in the camp and at least one person died residents rioted in anger as the firefighters put up the flame and they broke into administrative offices. oh yeah. since that incident i'm on says trash has accumulated in heaps he believes the garbage collectors are too afraid now to come to the area. it's children who suffer most from the dire conditions they live in. the aid organization doctors without borders runs a mobile clinic next to the camp today they will see about 100 children a normal caseload. the most common ailments are fevers lies skin conditions but psychological trauma is on the rise. the organization says many children in moria camp have inflicted harm on themselves and have even attempted suicide in the case
12:10 pm
he said we are seeing of children traumatized from their a country of origin is for the completely. difficult journey that they took to reach europe to reach at least most and they end up here in a calm completely overcrowded we don't know services and safe and secure the conditions the mental condition of the children are bigger they think they by day this is daily life inside a refugee camp packed with more than 10000 people a result of the resurgence and see crossings to lesbos the trip from the turkish coast to this beach takes about 2 hours and more migrants are making this journey than at any other point since 2016 when the european union signed a deal with turkey to prevent them from coming now with thousands waiting on this and other greek islands for their asylum applications to go through people here tell us the situation has become a crisis
12:11 pm
a situation that worries younus master again as he is the. mayor of moria the small town right next to the camp. like many people living here he feels lesbos is being left to fend for itself. europe should show more solidarity and support crease with this problem greece alone isn't capable of dealing with this large number of refugees the e.u. member states have to help take in people and at the same time increase the pressure on turkey to stick to their side of the agreement if it was the issue of when you were here. back in the camp i'm on says he doesn't want to be a burden on anyone all he wants is a safe place to live. and he hopes to find this place before winter. and including an interior minister horst. has met with top to officious amid growing tensions over refugees turkey has given sanctuary to some 3600000 syrian
12:12 pm
refugees the redoubtable financial support to is threatening to limit its making it easier for refugees to reach the e.u. and put more pressure on the by greece. on the shores of the aegean sea more migrants are trying to reach the e.u. via turkey than at any point since the e.u. and turkey struck a deal in 2016 and korea agreed to effectively close the route to migrants in return for up to 6000000000 euro as of which 2600000000 has been dispersed now german interior minister hosting her for his on a 2 day tour to turkey and greece to discuss the next steps and korea has threatened to open the gates to europe if the e.u. doesn't give more support. for speed right. we are ready to help turkey wherever possible and support the country in various possibilities i'm eager to see what these possibilities are in our talks later. in
12:13 pm
the. turkey one small financial support especially for a possible safety zone in northern syria where president after one wants to accommodate another 2000000 refugees fleeing syria. we fulfill all obligations under the agreement with the you both on humanitarian grounds but also out of fidelity to the steel but we expect the same from the e.u. . big countries to. the project on the turkish syrian border is being hotly debated with fears that the worsening situation in it live in northern syria could put even more pressure on the border region after most talks in turkey on friday they hope to athens where concerns over overcrowding on greek islands are growing by the day the country now finds itself caught both geographically and politically between a year until. joining me now is our correspondents dorian
12:14 pm
jones in istanbul and our chief political correspondent melinda during messed off with you know what happened to this refugee day why is it not working. well this all started when the turkish president may have type one gave a warning that he's ready to open he's bold as to europe if they do not address turkey's refugee concerns why tokyo is now warning about these fears it is ready for another mass influx of refugees into turkey from the syrian province of idlib which is the last rebel enclave i could well full to syrian forces in the coming weeks possibly months turkey says it cannot take any more refugees it needs europe to join in working together to resolve this this is tokyo issuing a law the whole of europe on these refugees going to greece is seen as part of up warming and they don't want to germany and the e.u.
12:15 pm
offering to get it once again behind this refugee agreement that they made with the country between the lines the money that's not what the german interior minister is saying in so many words but if you look at what he is saying he's saying that europe is prepared to do whatever is needed to support turkey and that he is committed to strengthening the deal with turkey and this was very much a financial deal as as was said in the report the e.u. promised turkey 6000000000 euros to essentially help limit the flow of refugees out of turkey toward greece all of that less than half has been paid out although the deal has been in place for several years now so i think it's fairly clear that that is what turkey wants and it sounds pretty clear that that also is what the e.u. is prepared to give so dorrian the money seems to be at the heart of this dispute at present on the tickets president don has tried to do what he calls open the
12:16 pm
floodgates if he doesn't get more funding couldn't see a repeat of 2015 and see a massive flow of refugees refugees coming into the. well yes hannity is definitely a risk because it isn't just about money turkey is facing a massive problem of refugees itself it's the president is well aware that turkey's talks patience is false running out he needs to find a solution himself and that is why he's looking for backing from europe and the west to relocate a 1000000 possibly 2000000 syrian refugees to the northeast syrian eric currently controlled by searing kodesh militia that considers its terrorist turkish forces are ready to great what he called a 30 kilometer deep safe zone in that region where the turkish president says he wants to send back refugees it's a hugely contentious policy but on cross says it has to send but these refugees because the people's patience is fast running out and let the german ministers it
12:17 pm
was into a key scene very obliging why is that the case well i think there is absolutely recognition in europe that turkey has borne the brunt of the refugee flow out of syria 3600000 refugees in turkey an enormous number and in fact the interior minister of germany paid tribute to turkey for that today so certainly there is that recognition and there is also concern that many of those refugees could find their way to greece and then on to western europe if in fact not more is done to shore up this deal with turkey now the the interior minister promised to bring turkey's concerns back to brussels to the new incoming president of the commission and then we will see what she does with them melinda crane in berlin and during jones in istanbul thank you both very much for your reporting.
