Summary Yemen's death row houses not just adults but children...Dateline hears their stories and meets the determined group of youngsters trying to save them; Japan's plummeting birth rates mean emptier classrooms and not enough workers to look after the increasingly elderly population and as Rio prepares for the World Cup and Olympics, communities are being forced out to make way for the city's grand plans. JUVENILE JUSTICEOn next Tuesday's Dateline, Fouad Hady reports from Yemen's death row... housing not just adults but children awaiting execution, sometimes for crimes they were forced to confess to. Inside the prison, he hears their desperate stories and witnesses the battle unfolding as UNICEF staff race against time to save their lives. But it could actually be other children who hold the key to justice and democracy in Yemen. The country's youth parliament is now in its 12th year and has proved a formidable force in calling Yemen's leaders to account on issues such as child labour, early marriage and juvenile justice. Its young politicians have already stopped three executions of underage prisoners, but they won't rest until all children are assured the rights they deserve.JAPAN'S BABY DRAINIt may not yet be evident on the crowded streets of Tokyo, but Japan is facing a population crisis. A plummeting birth rate means communities away from the cities are dying and there are concerns it could lead to the decline of the entire country. On Tuesday's Dateline, Adrian Brown reports from a mountain village, where the number of schoolchildren has dropped from 1,200 to 37... one class has only a single pupil. The headmaster believes it's a reflection of the whole of Japan, with many people moving away and putting their careers before relationships and children. That already means an increasingly elderly population with not enough young workers to look after them. So what can be done to defuse Japan's demographic timebomb? RESHAPING RIORio de Janeiro is preparing to be the centre of the world's attention... with Brazil hosting both the World Cup and the Olympics. But Dateline has found that behind the grand plans for stadiums, tourist attractions and new transport links, lie whole communities being forced from their homes. Yaara Bou Melhem meets people who say they were told to move out in the morning, then by the afternoon their homes had been flattened. The slum dwellers claim they can't afford to go elsewhere, and the compensation or relocation offered by the government are no replacement for their bulldozed homes. With protests continuing and a legal challenge looming, will Rio be ready for kick off in just over a year's time?
