5:22 am
regulate content. chinese internet users are not so sure. some express concern whether the move will produce self censorship and whether service providers can gather safety and security of personnel information. >> japan's cabinet approved the largest ever defense project. 42 billion, a 2% rise in defense spending and a third increase. it includes plans to buy surveillance aircraft and amphibious vehicles for a new unit. it is to boost japan's feelings. they are also claimed by china. it means it can only use the military for self-defence. constitutionally it's not allowed to hold a standing.

5:28 am
>> it's a fear from other health workers. these women were critical in raising awareness about family planning and encouraging other mothers. today, nop of them are promoting it. >> earlier we used to visit families with 3-4 children and give advice on family planning. we are not doing that any more. >> health officials are investigating why the women die and hope stricter standards will help them to rebuild the trust. >> there were short comings from our end. some women died after the surgery. i accept something wept wrong and led to the deaths. >> back in the house. it is worried that efforts to curb the population may have left this woman unable to have

5:33 am
about "charlie hebdo.".. >> it doesn't say whether both were akd. but the kouachi brothers were given orders from the al qaeda peninsula. he's saying this was commissioned by the overall leader of al qaeda. that and anwar al-awlaki was killed. technically the operation took place which means it was thoroughly well planned in the arabian peninsula. it shows you that these people are at large we know one. kouachi brothers said kouachi, had contact with anwar al-awlaki. he had said that. i think playing himself, and, of
5:34 am
course, in a u.s. drone strike. but who is making these now, who is he how important is he within the group? >> we know the top commander in the arabian peninsula. he is a top political leader. and a top military commander. for this man to come up today, there's no doubt that he's one of the top leaders in the arabian peninsula. by the way, a member of axe q a.p. - he is a senior member of al qaeda. this is a veteran jihadist. one of those in afghanistan. close to osama bin laden, fought in kashmir. in 2001 where he was arrested. but then he was released in 2010. apparently all those years.

5:36 am
australia human rights commissioner says no. a clause in the racial rules would shut it down. the clause which the human watch commissioner wants repealed in the name of freedom of speech makes it illegal to instalment or offend a group of people based on raise, colour or religion. the government which appointed the human rights watch commissioner planned to repeal that clause. but copping a backlash from people legalizing a hate speech... ..joining the "jes suis charlie" campaign the human rights watch commissioner and others asked australia government to look at the racial discrimination act. at the moment that clause amounts to censorship that freedom of speech should trump hurt feelings. rachel jolly is the editor of the index on censorship
5:37 am
magazine and joins me from london. i guess the debate goes on about what constitutes free speech. the controversial comedian has been arrested for making certain comments. the debate about what constitutes freedom of speech and how far you can go really goes on. >> at the bottom line of what we want to argue always is if they have to debate underground, it's better for people to understand each other, and understand information than it is to be ilinformed. if people are banned from talking, it leads to misinformation and frustration, and the world is a better place
5:38 am
if we are aware of thinking. >> the cartoons printed in "charlie hebdo" would not have been printed in australia - that's what our reporter andrew thomas highlighted because of clauses making it - meaning that it's essentially insulting or offending people based on raise or authenticity. do laws like this need to be amended or repealed? >> we don't have the right to stop people thinking or stop the debate. in britain, it's true in australia, of poking fun the best way to argue, to get the debate going for people to be more moved. informed -- informed. satire is a great way of making
5:39 am

5:41 am
criminal gangs. >> ulbricht supporters say it's not just for criminals, but political activists and journalists. not to mention anyone that cares about the fourth amendment. it proilents search and seizure. >> the bill of rights is on trial and is concerning. that concern - i am fighting of course but it is bigger than ross. >> such lofty issue are not expected it be part of his defense as he faces conspiracy charges for drug dealing, computer hacking and money laundering. >> government said during opening arguments that ross ulbricht is the dread pirate roberts. his lawyers conceded that he built silk road but handed over control of the site. he was lured back in once the
