about 740000 people fled into bangladesh. a quarter of a 1000000 more people have now been displaced since february's crew, and the u. n says about a 1000 people have been killed. many others tortured or detained. while we spoke to the un special rapids, had tom andrews about his warning to the general assembly, he says urgent action must be taken to prevent what may be clearance, operations. things are very, very tense. and what's happening right now is that we're, we have a dry season upon us. and that is traditionally a time when there is an escalation of military action. and we have seen that the deployment of tens of thousands of troops, heavy weapons and equipment into the north western regions of the country. so this is a very, very disturbing sign. we have seen increased human rights violations. many people are caught in the crossfire and we're, we're very,
7:03 pm
very concerned that we could be seen now imminently a significant loss of life. i hope i'm wrong, and i'm hoping these, these calls for restraint will be heard. but right now i'm, i'm deeply concerned. well, what we saw in 2016 at 2017, was a mass deployment in ra, kind state of troops and weapons on a very systematic basis. and then all hell fire broke loose and these troops surrounded villages. they attacked them ferociously. people, many people were killed the worst incredible. oh, richard, human rights violations and torture, just unspeakable violence. and so we're seeing that pattern. we're seeing the massing of troops, the deployment in areas that the of the hunter has decided. it is an area that needs to be, as they say, open up clearance operations. now this is the term that everyone in and more knows
7:04 pm
at least those in the ethnic areas that just that leads potential very ferocious attacks and mercy crossing. so them and they've talked about clearance, what they did find the genocidal attacks against to where you go as clear as operations and we're hearing that term used again. as we see of tens of thousands of troops deployed to the northwest hotel. his president has ordered at 10 western ambassadors be expelled for calling for the release of a jour philanthropist. osman kabbalah has been imprisoned since late 2017. without being convicted. he was accused of financing the 2017 at gassy park protests and participating and failed to which he denies. a joint statement from several countries including the united states, canada, france, and germany alleged that the case cast a shadow of a respect for democracy. now rival rallies are taking place and hungary is capital in support of opposing candidates and parliamentary elections next year.

7:06 pm
it's pretty difficult to say how much of this resonates in a country that is more conservative and liberal societies in the west of the attempt to get its act together. the opposition managed to nominate the ideal candidate for society like hungry. the alternative would have been the vice president of europe in parliament. and she sort of represent you which is consider in all of us propaganda evo system. that is to secular and not sufficiently conservative and not sufficiently hungaria. this new candidate is a family man. he's a male, is conservative. he lived in the united states for a bit and understands that he can try to learn from what bernie sanders successfully did to mobilize the masses. but i think there is a strong appetite for change in the part of society that understands that being

7:09 pm
producer. during that time, many jumped into the sea and attempted to swim to shore. the experience have been kept at sea had a devastating effect on the migrants, according to the psychologist who spoke to them while they were still on the boat. it lifted more little being kept on board meant they were re traumatized again and again, they felt continuously abused. it was an abuse of power in the southeast as he was just carrying out the policies of the government at the time. this trial comes right as my sardine finds himself in one of the weakest political moments career. and in many of his statement, he deflecting from the main issue to hand and blaming the trial on an overzealous traditional system that he says it's wasting taxpayer. money. if convicted south vini could face up to 15 years in prison, with more than 2 dozen witnesses set to testify, the case will carry on for several months. adam rainy, i'll do 0 room. on the meantime, in poland,
