courts. the prosecutors are telling us that they're investigating those people who had been caught. we don't yet have details about exactly who was in custody whether they were all muslim brotherhood members the anti-coup alliance or bystanders caught up in the sweeps by police looking for protesters. but we need to see just how the courts respond to this. once those people do end up in court it's been up to the judges to first of all to decide if they're guilty of charge and then look at the sentence of five years. the courts may back away from that, but the authorities, the government is putting on a lot of pressure to sentence people to the max fiv maximum five yea. >> peter is bringing us the

agreement on the bitter issues that divide communities. let's go to our european news center. >> reporter: well, the man charged with getting the deal richard said the final agreement must be reached by monday. talks broke up without agreement, but he said the deal after months of simmerly resentment and violence is extraordinarily close. now the flying of flags can also be provocative whether the u.k.'s union flag or the irish trtricolor. the union flag is still flown in belfast sparking violent protests. the dealing with the aftermath of 30 years of conflict remains
the most central and difficult issue. to end prosecution for historical crimes con demeanorred by the british government. richard, the former u.s. diplomat, he has come back to northern ireland. is that a sign that he wants the agreement by the end of the year. it's not long, can they make it happen? >> no, the clock is against them. but they lead two of the sharpest, brightest talents in the diplomatic service. coming here and giving their time and going home for christmas and then coming back, they have muc some sense that it could be made up or they wouldn't have bothered to coming back. there is a little hope. >> explain to why the flag flying was controversial.
>> reporter: well, the population is 47% catholic nationalists and the majority is the union protestant. they see only one flag only. the flag of the united kingdom. unionism does not respect the green, white and gold, the irish flag flying anywhere in the northern ireland. their big thing is to stop that flag flying in any circumstances. richard haass floated the idea when he came here initially. why, he asked, would you not fly the irish flag? for example, should the president of the irish republic or the prime minister visit northern ireland as it happens in every other country where the flag of the national country and
the visiting dignitary fly side by side. under the unions thinking no tolerance would be had with that. they want the flag to fly wherever they want it to fly. thtypical situation. stand off situation. no hope for reconciliation for this issue in the short term. >> are people paying attention to talks where you are? is this high on people's agenda? watching and saying we want to solve this? >> yes, people are giving this attention and they have contempt for the politicians. the sense of despair almost within the broad community generally speaking. they want the politicians to get
on with it, move forward. stop looking backwards. then the whole issue of parading. there is an issue of parading where the orange men identify with the protestant march wherever they want to do. now the nationalists are saying, no, it has changed, the topography has changed. if you're not welcome in our area, you're not marching through our area. they're opposing union lawism, and marching through their areas. haass is trying to find the middle course here and there will be a whole issue of structuring the issue of parade. then the other big area is dealing with the past. when we talk about dialin dealih the past, we have victims-- >> we'll have to jump in and
stop through. thank you very much for joining us, live from belfast. >> thank you. >> part of an attempt by the kremlin to shine some light into people's lives after scrapping daylight savings hour, some team complain that they live their lives in total darkness. >> wakey, wakey, it's nearly 10:00 in the morning, and it could well be midnight ever since the kremlin scrapped daylight saving time a couple of years ago the people here have to face 18 hours of darkness a day through the winter. sometimes going without seeing a trace of blue sky or sunlight for months. for the people of moscow the day walk to work can be a depressing and at times dangerous experience. carried out in almost total darkness crossing treacherous icy streets, and then it all has to be repeated again eight hours
later. again in total darkness. >> it really influences people. they can even get depression. statistics say 10% of people suffer from this disease during winter. people can feel lack of energy, 10% has to get medical treatment such as answered depress tonights. >> for the first time city authorities declare let there be light, and lo and behold there was light. they don't celebrate christmas in december. new year's is the big deal but that did not stop city official flashing out $10 million to turn moscow into a winter wonderland. as far as christmas decorations we're not talking about london's regent street or sometimes squartimes square.but this is a. decorations that will remain in place through the winter

been significantly eased. the country's population control law was instituted in 1979, since then couples have been allowed one child. what has changed? >> reporter: it's official. from now on millions of chinese families can grow. and that is music to the ears of many. both in their mid 30s and already have one son. but chen said he feels it's his duty to have another child. >> i think it's our obligation as parents to make sure that he has a sibling. an only child is only. i'm not an only child myself. i have a younger sister. it feels great to have a sister. >> for generation the one-child policy has prevented 400 million births. it was introduced when china's economy was weaker and with a
population it's government felt it couldn't support. with a country much richer now than it was in 1979 the likelihood of a baby boom is remote because developed countries tend to have smaller families regardless of government policy. but chen is just grateful the system is changing. >> if the rules had been loosened we wouldn't have been allowed to apply for the birth permit. we're so relieved that the policy has changed. it will take a lot of financial burden off us. >> that is something the government is clearly keen to encourage. one academic says without this relaxation of the rules the economy would suffer. >> in the long run labor shortage and rapidly aging population will under mine economic growth. it's not always good that the birth rate stays low.
the birth rate should match the level of economic development and changes in population. >> one thing is certain, the children playing in this kindergarten will enjoy freedoms that older generations would deny. >> cervical cancer kills more south africaen women than any other type of cancer. the nation wants to vaccinate girls. >> a second of discourt for a lifetime of protection against cervical cancer. these girls are benefiting from a non-profit organization called dance for a cure. it's vaccinating girls at under privilege schools.

the vaccine. >> it costs here $160 to vaccinate each girl. the government is still negotiating a better deal but it's worth the money who survived cervical cancer. she thinks the biggest challenge of pre-venting people from dying from h.i.v. or cancer is education. >> the message would reach everyone. i wish all the big companies would get involved in raising awareness. >> over 3000 south africas die of cervical cancer every year, but it doesn't have to be that way, and knowing that will make a few teary moments worthwhile. al jazeera, johannesburg. >> still ahead on the al jazeera news hour. history in the making. a packed house as this man is sworn in as delhi's new chief

the atlantic. scientists believe they can find more waters like these off the coral coast. hi there, richard, you must be super excited about these discoveries. why do you think they're so significant? >> good afternoon, well, they're very significant, and we're excited because it shows here in the 21st century we're learning more and more about what lies beneath the oceans. so the discovery of four new animals, as you put it, is exciting. it's a big development and the scientific community is very excited, indeed. >> there is always a lot of research going on. why has these stayed hidden for so long, not that i'm suggesting that it's easy to find new species. >> well, you described it in your destructio introduction, te
hundreds of snails off the scottish territory. the on or about where there is fishing activity, yes, but other than that there is not that much survey work carried out in this particular location. there has been discoveries elsewhere in the atlantic, but this discovery with four new species have been discovered, and the natural release of hyd hydrocarbons in the water, this is very significant. >> why are these so important? is it because we only see certain species in these areas, or does it tell us about something about the rest of the ocean itself? >> this is the first found in the area. and they're looking at the fact that there is a cold seat the release of hydrocarbons in the
water that is having impact, and of course there are these four unique species being discovered at the same time. scientists will continue to discover what is the link, but the coincidence there may be a link. that's why we have to keep finding this kind of research, it's been so important in the past. the research was to look at the link of fishing activity and marine conservation. marine conservation is high on the list these days. >> you mention there had is some fishing in the area where these new species were found. will there be fishing, or can it become a protected area because of these finds. >> our records show there is no fishing area that has been identified. however the international authorities that have an interest in marine conservation
and the scottish government has signed up to, will decide what conservation measures should be put in place to protect this area, and that's the next stage with the scientists looking at what measures should be put in place. but the caution says that it should be closed off to fishing. seeing that there is no activity at the moment, the wise thing to do is to put safeguards in place for the future. >> joining me from skype, thank you. >> thank you very much. >> and with that you are up-to-date with the news from europe. let's take you back to doha. >> thanks very much. there is lots more ahead on this news hour. imagine living without power for days amid a heatwave find out how people in buenos aires is coping. and we have today's sports coming up.
