it's the most violent attack on civilians and bonus state this year. the region in northeastern nigeria has been gripped by a jihad just insurgency for a decade. both the islamist group boko haram and a rival group, the i.a.s. affiliated so-called islamic state west africa province operate here. the 2 groups have been blamed for attacks on fallen isn't fisherman, and they accuse of spying for the army and pro-government militia. but so far, there's been no claim of responsibility. i don't want us. i came down work around it, killed many of our people. we need assistance. we need weapons because we have young men who cannot guard our farmers while they work. please please, for god's sake. the democrats don't like it when the nigerian military has been unable to quell the insurgency in which tens of thousands have been killed or abducted. there are reports that several women may also have been kidnapped in the
4:04 pm
latest incident. and the number of men remain missing, raising fears that the death toll from this brutal attack could still rise. and it every so west africa correspondent, funny fish are, says this attack follows government airstrikes, targeting the hardest insurgents in the country's north. it remains unclear just how many people have been killed in this horrendous massacre on saturday in borno state in the north east orphanage area. the state governor there speaks of at least 70 people killed. and regardless of the actual death toll, one thing is certain. this is one of the worst attacks in recent years. he nigeria, a country that is suffering because of violence because of jihadism because of the uprising that began in borno state in 2009. now, so far, no group, no militant group has claimed responsibility for this attack,
4:05 pm
but it definitely does carry to trademark the signature of or of its splinter groups that associate themselves with isis. the nigerian army has actually carried out several air strikes in november saying that they do see and observe a resurgence of terrorist activity. and president, who are you seeing that the all me has received all necessary support to protect the citizens, to protect the population of nigeria. unfortunately, this massacre tells you a different story. and that is that this situation here in a remains very volatile, very unstable, very secure. unfortunately with no improvement in the fish are reporting there. want to turn our to our nature is a researcher in the africa division at human rights watch a very day. i mean, how in secure is northern nigeria undoubtedly in the area where these attacks occur, which is as you know,
4:06 pm
the correspondent has said this area has been warm to balance for the last 10 years in the final, not area of or in the state reports and that it is completely in a state support for our government forces anyone humanitarian work. because you have pockets of villages and communities in that area completely in control by insurgent groups. now it's many community members who may or may not want to be associated with these groups are left with very little, very little, very little chance to say no, essentially, because they fear for their lives. and in parts of the state that are controlled by security forces, you find that there is still a sense of insecurity because people cannot go out into violence outside of their immediate vicinity of security forces. or else you have massacres. like what you saw, what we've seen
4:07 pm
a cope with the weekend now being reported. and what can be done to stop these massacres like the one that we sadly saw from happening again? well, i think there is no simple answer to this. it is a multifaceted issue. on the one hand you have the issue of the ability of the nigerian security forces to actually respond to the violence and ensure that they're protecting civilians while carrying out this counterinsurgency operations. and there's really no sense of the ability to be able to do that. and there is a problem, chance ben, see in terms of military action and you know, what kind of support they have are lacking or a need. and then there is also the question of what some of the main drivers of the insurgency is the question as to why you still have, you know, the groups recruiting and having, you know, the sort of presence that they have in many of these communities. and it's essentially a fundamental question of, you know, trust in the wondering authorities. and as opposed to, you know,
4:08 pm
these answers that have taken over fears of a lot of the country and are controlling, you know, arrogance and a few moments that we have left together. now, nigeria's army has been heavily policing and to police brutality protests in a recent weeks. have they been too distracted to police to north? i mean, there's no clear indication of the fact that they've taking considerably considerable on attention away from the north east conflict of humans are responsive and i please print silence and protest. and in any event, the question of whether or not they should be responding to the un 5 rounds. with the protests, we've done that. the judgment calls by citizens for accountability and reform of a completely abused it police unit is one that has been the onset of these protests which took place in major cities across the country where largely peaceful and the sort of brutal spots that have come from here. parties have been majorly criticised,

4:20 pm
australian forces were involved in the murder of up to $39.00, afghani prisoners and civilians in what might amount to war crimes. and further that new troops were encouraged to kill afghanis as part of initiation rites. now these terrible allegations are being investigated by police and may result in prosecutions. and australia's prime minister has apologized to afghanistan. tell us about the tweet and question. also. this inquiry report was released over a week ago. well, today, an official at the chinese foreign ministry tweeted to say that he was shocked by the murder of afghan civilians by its training soldiers. now had the tweet stopped there. a strategy might have had little to complain about except for the fact that these crimes are allegations and haven't yet been proven. but the official went further by adding this doctored image, which appears to show a soldier killing or threatening a child. now that gave the astray and prime minister the opportunity to go on the front foot and he called this images repugnant and offensive. we can have
4:21 pm
a listen to more of what he had to say. it is absolutely outrageous and it cannot be justified on any vices whatsoever. the chinese government should be totally ashamed of this post. there are undoubtedly tensions that exist between china and the struggle. but this is not how you do with them. joe, he is in dignan to talk to us about the tensions that he referenced there. what is he talking about? well, diplomacy between australia and china. is that really one of his lowest points in many decades that a strain made allegations against china as it has demanded a global inquiry into the origins of the covered 19 virus. and that has infuriated china. in response. china has slapped trade tariffs and many goods from australia such as based bali and wine and it has left exports. basically sitting in shipping
