Kochi embarks on water metro project to revamp 'Venice of the east'
Islanders in Vembanad lagoon, now a popular Keralan tourist destination, hope new public transport will bring easy access to jobs and services on mainlandThe city of Kochi in the southern Indian state of Kerala is to become the first in the country to get its own water metro system, in a move that authorities say could transform the lives of thousands of fishermen and farmers living on islands in the local lagoon.The islands in the Vembanad lagoon, inevitably known as the “Venice of the east” because of the large network of canals which connect them, are home to some of Kerala’s poorest people, many of whom have little access to the urban mainland and earn less than £1 a day.

The descendants of thousands of people who fled their homes during the British retreat from India in 1947 are still denied welfare in autonomous Indian stateFlags and parades on both sides of border mark 70th anniversary of independenceThe scrubby lowlands of Jammu are stuck between the Himalayas and the dusty plains of Punjab, and home to 19,000 families stuck in time.

Fact check: Aung San Suu Kyi's speech on the Rohingya crisis
Address by de facto leader of Myanmar on forced displacement of hundreds of thousands of Muslims contained truths, half-truths and falsehoodsFollowing weeks of silence in the face of claims of ethnic cleansing against Myanmar’s Rohingya population, the country’s de facto leader Aung San Suu Kyi has delivered a controversial speech. Related: Aung San Suu Kyi says Myanmar does not fear scrutiny over Rohingya crisis I think it is only fitting that I should remind you today that our government has not yet been in power for even 18 months.After several months of seemingly quiet and peace, on 25 August, 30 police outposts … were attacked by armed groups. It is not the intention of the Myanmar government to apportion blame or to abnegate responsibility. We condemn all human rights violations and unlawful violence. Related: Myanmar: satellite imagery confirms Rohingya village of Tula Toli razed Human rights violations and all other acts that impair stability and harmony and undermine the rule of law will be addressed in accordance with strict norms of justice.Those who have had to flee their homes are many – not just Muslims and Rakhines, but also small minority groups, such as the Daing-net, Mro [Kamee], Thet, Mramagyi and Hindus, of whose presence most of the world is totally unaware.Since 5 September, there have been no armed clashes and there have been no clearance operations.More than 50% of the villages of Muslims are intact.All people living in the Rakhine state have access to education and healthcare services without discrimination. Since December 2016, local and foreign media groups have been given access to areas previously off-limits in Rakhine. Even after the outbreaks on 25 August, we arranged for several media groups to visit the afflicted areas. There has been a call for the repatriation of refugees who have fled from Myanmar to Bangladesh. We are prepared to start the verification process at any time.
