N. high commissioner for refugees jeez global spokesperson for mixed migration mediterranean and africa welcome to democracy now charlie actually can you explain what just happened this latest shipwreck shipwreck and what the casualties are well once again we morning yet another the tragic incident resulting from people trying to flee the war and violence <hes> in libya. The rescue operation is still underway a but what we understand from our teams who are there on the ground speaking with survivors a boat left in the early hours of yesterday morning very soon came into distress appears the forty people who have now drowned on the mediterranean and and this is just the latest and a series of drownings people taking these similar similar journeys to this one each time we do see a outpouring of public sympathy empathy expressed from all corners but we're calling now for those sentiments to be translated into meaningful action u._n._h. This house proposed a way forward. There's a number of ways we can improve search and rescue capacity at sea and get refugees libya so they don't take these boats in the first place but this situation cannot continue as is so explain who was in this ship before and it <hes> before before the shipwreck and explain why they couldn't get to land this group <hes> it's very similar to the kinda groups. We often see departing from libya. It's a mixed group of people of refugees and migrants around a third from refugee producing country so in the east and west of africa we currently have more than fifteen unresolved conflicts insecurity in different areas and particularly in places like a retriever aaron and somalia and sudan in in the east. Mali and burkina faso's in the west people. They're fleeing ongoing fighting by armed groups and are in need of refugee protection at the same time we do see secondary movement from countries neighboring those countries because their asylum silence systems are in need of strengthening and then needs to be strategic development assistance when people don't feel safe and feel they're able to make the most of economic opportunities that will allow them in their families to survive we see a rising trend of people putting their hands in that lives in the hands of smugglers and traffickers who commit a range of human rights abuses and they're responsible for putting people in these flimsy and uh unseaworthy boats that have often little hope of reaching dry land unattached court ruled two weeks ago that the spanish humanitarian ship open arms which choose waiting off the italian island of lampedusa carrying nearly one hundred fifty rescued migrants and refugees should be allowed to dock in italy. This was in defiance of a ban by italy's as far right interior minister and deputy prime minister matteo salvini in a statement issued by his office savini said quote. I continue and we'll continue denied landing to those those who claim to bring illegal immigrants always and only in italy savino also said he'll continue to defend italy's borders and say quote no to disembarking. Can you talk about the significance what this means for migrants that say this is different legal and logistical restrictions being placed on them mm-hmm therefore needs to be acknowledged and supported and not criminalized no stigmatize there are suggestions by some that these ngos <hes> collaborate with smugglers aid illegal migration but we see no evidence for that at different times teams in the last year there have been no ngo boats operating search and rescue on the central mediterranean and yet actually the average number of departures has increased when we look more closely at the situation it becomes clear that it's the push factors that people leaving behind line the wall violence and human rights abuses the escalating violence in libya since april has a much bigger motivating factor than any any kind of potential pull factor of the presence of ngo booze pant clamp.

You're police are stealing blankets from people. Oh you forced to live on the streets while you raid protests and criminalize people that are standing up for rights of migrants and asylum seekers clem said she was awarded the grandville metal last month alongside caroline raquet. <hes> fellow member of the refugee rescue organization see watch two years ago. Oh clemson ship was seized by authorities in italian port and choose eventually church with assisting so-called illegal immigration. She's currently awaiting trial facing up to twenty years in prison if convicted charlie actually if you could comment on the stakes for people who are trying to help those who might diet see and are well. I think the frustrations frustration sees expresses. The <hes> understandable i mean ngop boats are picking up people who are in a desperate state. That's be clear people. Don't take these boat vote journeys. They are aware that these journeys could often be fatal and nobody puts their own lives and the lives of their families at risk in that way unless they feel the better off on the water on the land so when ngos pick the pick people up in rescued him in the see. They're all well. Dean is not then over there then stranded at sea for days on end while states have often engaged in political back and forth trying to see who can most shift responsibility onto others. I think what's needed now is for the toxicity in the political michael debate to be removed and more objective perspective to come in here. The number of arrivals reaching european shows are really down significantly -nificant. We're no longer in a situation like we saw in twenty fourteen in the immediate years that followed where we saw incredibly high numbers way back to pre-crisis levels but yet deaths remained broadly the same <hes> so we're no longer in a crisis of arrivals here we're in a crisis of deaths in and that needs to be some soul searching about whether european willing to engage with people who are seeking asylum on their doorstep sta. You have said one in six or one in seven people die at sea. Can you explain where they are dying. What what is the route.

"Nigeria will be inaugurated president Muhammadu Buhari from the old progressives. Congress secured the presidency in February's election. But if he is to make government work, he will need to be able to work with parliament, the BBC's. Chris Walker joins us now from a Buddha. Hi, chris. What's happening today? This is the election of the parliamentary leadership. Just tell us a little bit more. Explain it to us. It's a big election day, actually, Nigeria because the parliamentarians today after greeted will not have to elect their leaders, and this is important because who have image as one of the leaders, like we have two house of parliamentary Nigeria will have the Senate, and then we'll have the house of representatives. Now each of these two houses will need leadership like the Senate the president of the Senate, and also his deputy, and then we'll have a speaker of the house of representatives and his deputy. So we have for people that will be elected today, physically why this is important is because of government the president. Like you said, wouldn't need a pilot that would be able to work with him without friction without without misunderstand. To be able to according to some people achieve this objective for the electorate they must be. They must be Chris likely candidates who Ave. Well, we I in the house of the Senate. Now we have to. Senators who Ovide for the position of the Senate president, we have a Malone, and then we'll have a lead today. These are NATO's Aranka Santos in the sense that they returning they've been reelected, and some of them have been in the Senate for like, over twelve years. Do they come with a lot of experience then? And obviously sharing a really good working relationship with president Muhammadu Buhari, but hops. Yes. But again, the issue is that most Nigerians are saying that they need an independent legislature independent parliament that will not be robust, Tom that will not be like someone doing the bidding of the president, and but the which means. Sorry to interrupt said, keep interrupting you which means that the parliament, then we'll be able to hold the executive to account exactly that is what most I some Nigeria are saying, but the party, which is producing the leadership of the national assembly where the president belong also want they have anointed candidates who they feel that would be able to walk with the president. And so one of them is going to be chosen the other one who is not anointed. His vying also have to face some form of struggle to see how he can image lovely, the BBC's Chris mocha joining us from Buju. Thank you very much.

Of course, unrolling Matthew will bring us the details. Let's talk about migration issues and a very strong warning, which comes from on next guest, the Mediterranean, and I'm quoting. Tting will be a sea of blood without rescue, boats now, this is talking about the concerted effort led launch sleep by Italy to obstruct, those NGO missions, which picked up migrants leaving North Africa by boat bound for Europe. Accused of being a taxi service for the people smugglers, the missions have effectively being criminalised, and of the ten boats operations, which trying to pick people out of the medicine now only one left operating the person who's done that rather bloodthirsty warning is Sammy very concerned about the situation. She's the regional spokesperson for south Europe for the UN HCR, the United Nations humanitarian relief operation Calata, welcome to the program. Why are you making this warning? Now lots of people are talking about the migration season. Hotting up as good weather. What's the situation in terms of numbers? Good morning. UNHCR is very concerned by the fact that so many people are still dying one every six that arrived to Italy have died in the Mets this year. And you have to think that it was one every twenty six last year. If it is true that less people are crossing the sea, just as few as two thousand arrived from Libya to easily this year in comparison to over fourteen thousand last year. It is also true that the central Mediterranean is without any any system of search and rescue, and that people are left adrift for many days. Those that managed to arrive alive. Too easily told us that they have been up to three days in the man, without any assistance, depart, despite the fact that airplane. Pains commercial vessels were passing close to close to them. Right. One thing I want to ask you to address this idea of getting a message back to the potential migrants. This is a really complicated question. Everyone's always arguing about it. Italy says we have tried to stop the taxi service. So the message gets out the it's not safe to travel from Libya right now. I'm looking, I'm looking United Nations stats at the moment that's been a huge increase, which you've just alluded to in people crossing from Morocco to Spain and from Turkey to Greece much less in the middle. Now that suggests the people know it's more dangerous in the middle. And that going east that going west than not using that central route. Do you think that's true? No. Well, I think it we, we must either recos in making such assumptions because the truth is that these different influx, you are mentioning include the different nationalities and are very different one from the other the truth is that, especially in Libya, people do not have any choice any civility to decide where to go, basically, Libya is a is a country in war where gangs and smugglers have the power to decide whatever about the life and death of people. And what is happening is that's now in Libya, we have almost a hundred thousand LeBron's that are newly displaced. And then we have thousands of migrants and refugees in detention that are languishing are dying and are these appear. During this is what is happening, and we have seen in the past few days, some in departure, and that was decided by Maglis networks, and we were very concerned because there are no rescue boats, and it, this continue, the might be many more of them right now, this is this is totally an innocent question. I have no idea what the answer is the UN mounts missions, all around the world humanitarian missions, I gather the we're talking about ten rescue operations in the central Mediterranean is if it's a serious, as you say, is it simply not possible for the UN to mount about operation to address this grievous danger that you're letting too well. E Yunus jar is Monday to do not include search and rescue operation. We are ille- BIA, and we are seeing people that are in the tension in what we are doing. Instead is to push states to organize safer ways to, to arrive in safe countries. And that's why for example, this year, we organized over thousand Eva questions for refugees out of.

Thousands of migrants still trapped by intensifying clashes in Tripoli detention centres
"This is Matt wells at US news Faouzi winds of migrants remain trapped by fighting in around Tripoli UN agency IOM has warned more than the month after an assault on the Libyan capital began led by self-styled, Libyan national army commander Khalifa after an interview with Daniel Johnson from your news safm silly from the international organization for migration in Libya explains. How the agency helps those held in eleven official detention facilities. She also gives us an update on last weekend's deadly shipwreck in which dozens of desperate migrants died trying to cross the Mediterranean Sea to Europe. Well, currently the clashes are escalating in Tripoli, which is extremely worrying for civilians, including migrants. And here I have to note, especially detain migrants and centers there are three thousand three hundred detained migrants in Tripoli. And as clashes intensify the situation is especially dangerous for them. How has access to these detain migrants in the official detention centers in. Outside Tripoli, so the detention centers that are ran by the official authority DCM the directorate for combatant illegal migration now inside Tripoli and around Tripoli as well. There are eleven detention centers functioning has access to those detention centers, and we mainly provide emergency assistance in the form of mon-, food items, health assistance, protection and also voluntary humanitarian support to those wishing to return to their countries of origin. We're not just talking about young men here in the main. We're also talking about women and children in detention centers. We are talking about men minors women children. I can also say pregnant women. So how are you managing to help them materially to migrants in detention centers, we provide health assistance, our teams, go to the detention centers and visit them regularly provide health screenings, and if there any hospital referrals or any further cases that need to be referred to the hospitals. We do that. We also provide nonfood items which is. Blankets mattresses, close hygiene items as well. We also can protection visits to detention centers where we interview the migrant sensitive there any vulnerabilities to be identified. We do advocate for alternatives to the tension. I'm so far we have provided an alternative to detention for over one hundred migrants vulnerable migrants, and that is in the system of host families that we've established in via so yet, although you provided alternative accommodation for someone hundred plus though, still many thousands who need your help. There are still thousands of migrants trapped in Libya weather in urban areas or in detention centers that still need support. And that is what we're working on right now and since the clashes erupted, and you say the getting worse in the last month, presumably the situation of migrants in these detention centers and other displaced people is worsening as well. So what can I do to help them? So our assistant. Can be summarized in emergency assistance. So basically due to the clashes what we do provide is emergency interventions. So we do provide hygiene kits mattresses not food items to displaced people, and we track instances of displacement, and therefore we provide assistance to displaced people. We also provide them with health assistance and hospital referrals, if need be and also the assistance that I mentioned that is provided to migrants weather in detention centers or urban areas. So all the while this fighting is going on the clashes going on the situation is worse than you say, but people are still trying to cross the Mediterranean risking their lives. And yet they're being returned to Libya to detention centers. I o M'S coolers presumably, they should not be happening. So we do consider Libya as an unsafe port and therefore migrants should not be returned to unsafe ports. It is also important to note that migrants are being returned to arbitrary detention some migrants stay in detention centers for over a year. Year or two years. And I am calls for the end of detention and the release of migrants detained especially there's an urgent need right now. With the intensifying clashes, and what details you have of the latest tragedy that happened at the weekend involving to migrant boats? In fact, there were two rescues so on tens of may a boat that left from Suara in Libya capsized off the Tunisian coast, sixteen survivors who were rescued by fishermen reported that fifty nine have died. Most of them were Bangladeshi there a day after that. There was also another boat that had departed we believe according to testimonies from the migrants from the same location and the boat arrived Tunis there were no casualties and the migrants disembarked in Tunisia. What can the international community do what should the international community? Do. What's the message from Iowa? We think there's an urgent need to find legal and safe pathway. As for migrants or asylum seekers to reach their destinations. We believe that Libya is not a safe port than there for migrants should not be turned from C to Libya the death toll after the incident on Friday in the central Mediterranean has risen to three hundred and sixteen since the beginning of this year. And we consider that that's an alarming number.
