u.s. brace for life against arctic temperatures. >> reporter: i'm barbara with the headlines from europe. including. >> taking evidence that shows that crimes have been committed. >> reporter: lawyers outline their case against the military in london. >> reporter: green is th the new black cab. it gets an environmental new year makeover. >> iraq's prime minister has called on people in the city of fallujah to drive out what he calls terrorists. al-qaeda-linked fighters belonging to a group have taken control of parts of both fallujah and ramadi.
iraq's army has pictures of fierce fighting. the military is preparing to retake fallujah. many people have abandoned homes and headed to a mainly shia area that is seen relatively safe. >> there has been an agreement between the tribes that would draw the army from the city, this is due to information about the isil control of the desert there. the isil rebels will try to bring back to the cities of ramadi and fallujah. the army has withdrawn from the cities of ramadi and fallujah. the army has not left the police force to protect the city.
this is the reason for isil in ramadi where they have burned some police headquarters. >> we have more about the roots of this crisis in anbar provin province. >> reporter: thanks, for much of 2013 tribes protested for the release of sunni prisoners. nouri al maliki tried to create reforms but was blocked. the isil formed safe haven across the iraq-syrian borders and played on fears of a shia domination. anbar accepted their presence and then last month isil
soldiers killed 20 iraqi soldiers. by then president al maliki had enough and sent in army. and now they're encoura encourae residents to take on a al-qaeda fighters themselves. >> we heard that they'll make their plan to go in. now securing various exits, they're making a tactical plan to go in. that's the reason iraqi army won't go in. they want the tribes to go in, and the tribes insist that they do it themselves. >> there have been several attacks against them across iraq. >> that's exactly right. we've seen this every time there
are operations in fallujah and ramadi over the years. we've seen three police called as a result of what some are saying are isil fighters, that's been unconfirmed by them. we will see more of this. once they've been squeezed in anbar province they will pop up in other areas. >> one of the reasons for this the government has to take a lot of the blame, it's been putting forward policies which is anti-sunni, which has created a difficult situation. >> reporter: they've accused al maliki to making policies to make mass arrests, looking people up in secret prisons and using politics, and so he's under tremendous amount of
pressure at the moment. he said he tried to push through some reforms that would address grievances, but it was the sunni block that would not allow them to push the reforms through, but yes, he's criticized massively by the sunnies. >> thank you very much. well, the same al-qaeda linked group is in the force of the fight in syria. now there are reports that the fighting has spread to the town of raka. the group has withdrawn from areas in syria and linked with other al-qaeda-linked groups. >> reporter: it's not the first time they do clash with some other groups, but it's the first
time that we see a coalition front of different rebel groups, islamists and other islamists united with one group to drive the isil fight tours defeat them and rid syria of this group. it's the first time. it's a serious attack. it's a serious push. it's happening throughout the northern part, eastern part of syria, it was focused around aleppo, and now it's spreading. it's a very important move. for a while the isil fight verse been spearheading all presence and seen a very strong growing force that has been taking over all groups especially the syrian army. >> if you have all this in-fighting in rebel groups, what does this mean for the opposition and chances for a political solution? >> reporter: well, as i said
this is not the first time they fight, than in-fighting did weaken the opposition in general. but there time it could be different because it seems the united rebel groups who are pushing against the isil fighters are hoping by getting rid of this group they will be able to clean the reputation of the opposition that they're not some extremist mill atlanta group formed mainly of foreign fighters andy hadist who want to impose very strict sharia laws on the society. they're trying to get rid of the group because they're trying to rally the international community again around the opposition. the extremist groups pushed some western countries, especially the united states and britain, to back away and stopped some of the aid being sent to them because they were afraid it was getting in the hands of the
extremists, and sooner or later these people will move away to fighting western countries. now th the in-fighting is happening, but the hope is it in the long run it could strengthen it. >> preliminary results indicate a landslide win for the ruling party, she won't enter talks with her rivals until they stop what she calls terrorist activities. >> this year elections have happened not only to secure democracy but to fight against democratic systems. we want to keep the flow of progress for bangladesh and we want to secure a golden era of bakelbangladesh.
they have not been cooperative and they have not taken any part. i've requested the opposition leader to come to discuss this, but he has deified me. >> any hopes that she was going to come out and offer any great gestures of compromise or reconciliation after sunday elections were dashed after speaking to the media. she spoke to us first in english and she was utterly defiant of any suggestion that this election had been a sham. she pointed to turn out figures and said they were a healthy indicator of those who wanted to had come out and voted in support of democracy. was there a crisis in the country? would she be able to declare a state of emergency to bring order back to the streets? she shot back, what do you want that i should try that we have a crisis? no, i'm leading this country, she said.
it is them and their terrorist activities, we are continuing the democratic process. i was able to ask her how far she might be prepared to go to reach a compromise with her opponents and reach a deal on early elections, and she said if they realize they made a mistake in boycotting the election maybe they could come forward to us, but they must leave terrorism behind leaving the ball very firmly in the opposition court. >> peace talks to end the conflict i are continuing. the rebel forces against the south sudanese government has agreed to a cease-fire. there has been three weeks of violence and unrest in south sue dab. they have been in talks in juba. at least a thousand people have
been killed in the fighting between government forces and those loyal to kiir's deputy reik machar. tell us more about president bashir's visit to south sudan. this is his first visit, isn't it? >> reporter: yes this, is his first visit. people were surprised with this visit because they did not expect him to go to juba at a time when there was news of clashes a couple of days ago, but bashir has insists on going and showing support, and after he's return to about an hour ago to kartoom.
they have asked for coordinated efforts between the two countries sending military to protect the oil wells, the agreement on that is not yet signed, but they're working on it, discussing t and the foreign minister even talked in the north to send hundreds of technicians to go and protect the oil wells. but it is an intricate situation. we know so far that the oil wells in the area to the north are still under the control of the rebels. they are concerned and there is a lot at stake here in the conflict in the south, and this visit explains that as you can see. >> it looks like business asocial iasusual in khartoum.
>> it will drain our resources here in the south. >> it's bothering me that they're killing each other. >> the south sudanese people are sudanese just like us. >> reporter: they have some of the most intrical ties the south sudan oil for ex-pourtation. >> if it continues that means sudan is going to lose the pipeline venue, and it contributed to the sudanese budget. that will bring economic crisis. >> reporter: officials have promised to keep the oil flowing, but that is not enough for khartoum. >> it poses real dangers to sudan. the security of the two
countries is inseparable. if you're asking about military intervention, i don't think it's an option here. >> being neutral about the conflict in the south is one thing, but staying idle and not finding a solution is a different situation. >> iwe do not know what is going to happen in the future if this conflict continues. >> reporter: he hits at a peacekeeping force. >> i would not expect that the sudanese army would do it alone, but definitely the sudanese army, they have the capability, the knowledge, they have the instrument in order to have a strong influence in the south. >> reporter: sudan has 2,000 kilometers of board boards with south sudan. the two country still have issues such as border delynn
delineation and the conflict in the south will add to the issues. >> what will they said about a cease-fire, it is very significant if that's true. >> reporter: yes, we just heard that breaking news, the rebel leaders who were actually in control of the area they have signed a peace agreement in juba. if that's true it can be contrasted with other lines of talks. those talks with regard to the discussion of the al bashir concessions that they've been demanding from juba to end the conflict. the situation there is taking two branches, two directions. one of them is an agreement with
rebels, and another is the leader al bashir. probably this will complicate the talks, but it could show results to its people, show results to its supporters that it is gaining ground and being able to drive a wedge between some of their believers. that could weaken the rebels. >> mohammed, thank you very much. from khartoum there. coming up anger in israel. find out why thousands of african migrants are marching to the american and european embassy. >> you can buy drugs. you can buy people. >> we take a look at the dark side of the worldwide web. and still ahead in sports fans pay their respect to
football legends. we have more coming up with robben. >> now the political wing of the muslim brotherhood has sent a legal team to london. let's find out why with bar about in our broadcast center. >> reporter: at their news conference, we can speak to them now. how confident are the lawyers that the icc will look into their submission? >> reporter: they're fairly confident but there does remain a question.
egypt is not a state party to the international criminal court, but countries can issuing is called an article 12 declaration given alleged crimes happening in their country. the freedom of justice party, the political arm of the muslim brotherhood, the government that ran egypt unti, the more icc acs the morsi government is still the legitimate government of egypt, and the international lawyers that have been speaking say that they probably will do they're confident that the icc will investigate.
>> reporter: it meets the test of graft. it should exercise jurisdiction. this is department on the failure the rege regime itself carrying out impartial. investigations into what has happened to egypt. there is no evidence that th the are investigations. >> we heard the issue of evidence being brought up so what evidence have the lawyers of freedom of justice given to the icc? >> reporter: they say they've got extensive evidence despite what they say is the non non-cooperation of what they
call the military regime. they've got video evidence of police, photographic evidence of bodies showing that people have been hit in the head with live rounds during were tes protestsy in august of last year. they have given figures at that incident upwards of 600 people were killed. that's being disputed by egyptian authorities. they say between july and november 1,120 people lost their lives, but there could be more than that because they're still talking to witnesses both inside and outside of egypt. and all of this they say adds up to a charge of crimes against humanity. the international lawyers are well to look into alleged crimes under president morsi as well if that's requested but so far they have not been asked to do tha s.
>> thank you. we'll have more news from europe but let's go back to shirley in doha. >> snow and icy weather conditions has brought many parts of the united states to a standstill. the midwest has come to some of the lowest temperatures in decades. thousands of flights have been disrupted. some schools have had to close, and people are being warmed indoors and stock up on supplies. well, asher, what is the situation. what is the temperatures? >> well, here in chicago we're looking at temperatures in the minus 10 to minus 15 degrees
fahrenheit, and that wind chill is whipping. it is brutally cold here. it is something that the authorities have recognized. schools are closed down an. there are warming centers where people can go and warm up because these temperatures are dangerously cold. according to noaa, frost bite is likely in these temperatures, and skin if exposed could become froze no one a minute or so. people are being told if you do not need to go outside, you should not go outside. you should stay indoors until this weather snap ends which is
midweek. >> i don't want you to be responsible for being frost bite. how is all of this affecting transport? how difficult is it to get around. >> absolutely. that's a big concern. we understand from the illinois department of transportation and other transportation agencies they're trying to clear snow. there has been no snow in chicago for a little while, so that's a good thing, but we do have the winds whipping up. they're having delays at the airport as a result, and because of mechanical mall functions t t has effected transportation. people have decided they'll try to work remotely from home. that's probably a smart thing to do if you can pull it off. >> sadly not for you and your team. get yourself inside into the
war. >> now the alleged founder of an online black market is waiting trial in new york. facing charges of conspiracy to drug traffic, money laundering and hacking. we took a tour of the deep web, the hidden and often shady underbelly of the internet. >> reporter: there is a place on the internet to deep, to dark, to anonymous it has become a black market bazaar. >> you can hits for hire to kill people, buy drugs, buy people. there is everything in civilized society says should not exist, it's there. and if it's not there you can ask for it and someone might

correspondent who has reported extensively across africa. okay, let's go back to our story now in south sudan. the violence there and the ongoing peace talks in ethiopia aimed at ending that conflict. we're joined in london, good to have you on the program. we've been hears in the last few minutes or so one rebel leader has agreed to a cease-fire in these talks which is encouraging but there are, in fact, many different factions in south sudan, aren't there? >> reporter: ye >> yes there, are several. this is quite timely news give the rebellionan that has been
happening in 2010 they signed an agreement with its president and government. it will be a booth now in the delays in talks that have been going on. >> you had this visit from president al bashir from sudan visiting its neighbor. is oil omar al bashir's many concern? >> it certainly would be one of his main concerns. they've had quite a checkered past, but over the last year they've managed to form an agreement and come to an agreement on transit fees and oil from sudan to south sudan. that money is vital to both country's economy. if that oil were to stop again
like at the beginning of 2012 it would really be detrimental. there were months where the countries were not receiving oil and large percentage of its revenue comes from oil. i think it would be difficult for sudan to have troops permanently stationed in south sudan. speaking about the oil fields, that's something different. if they were in an agreement where they could provide a buffer in the short term i'm sure that's something that could be possible for both parties. but it is important for both toronto that the oil continues to flow and reik machar said that it is his aim. >> this is a huge concern to
countries in the region. you've got tens of thousands of people being displaced and the fighting continuing even as these talks go on in ethiopia. >> yes, i'm sure these will be ramped up in the next weeks, pre-conditions in place in terms of releasing political opposition figures and also this is very important. hundreds of thousands of people displaced, thousands now killed in the fighting, so they would be looking towards that i think with the representatives with the two parties. >> thank you very much for your analysis there. speaking to us from london.

stabbed repeatedly and then had her nose and lips cut off. she said her attacker was her husband. with a drug addict she refused to fund. from her hospital bed she tried to tell us her story. but her words were unrecognizable, spoken in agony. >> they had problems before but it was not like this. if i had known the problem would come to this i would have killed him with my own hands. >> reporter: as with so many cases in afghanistan the assault happened in her home. the very place where women in conservative societies should be safe. >> do you see this blood when we first came she was lying here. the blood was from her lips and from her nose. she was semi conscious, saying just a few words. >> reporter: while her case may be unusual in the extreme level of brutality involved, those who
work with women in afghanistan say there are increasing reports of women being assaulted. the afghanistan independent human rights commission said in 2013 they saw 26% increase of reports from women saying they had been violently assaulted. >> women are protected under afghan law but the state rarely brings culprits to justice. human rights organizations hearsay her case was not only one of the worst they saw, but that her husband is still a free man. >> the worse case of violence against women in 2013 with the cutting of the nose and lips of a woman in western afghanistan and another woman who was chopped into pieces with an axe by her husband. unfortunately the perpetrators of the crimes did not face justice. >> reporter: without justice for afghan women the men who attack them are unlikely to stop. politicians and official continue to pay lip service to women's rights, but their
refusal to act on promises could see the violence get even worse. jane ferguson, al jazeera, kabul, afghanistan. >> now the british chancellor pledged another $1 billion of public spending. back to barbara in london. >> reporter: he laid out his plans in a keynote speech in which he warned only further austerity measures can pay for tax cuts and enter job prospects. >> the bad news there is still a long way to go. we're borrowing around 100 billion-pounds a year and paying half that money a year in interest just to service our debts. so we've got to make more cuts, £17 billion this year and
£25 billion further the two years after that. >> thousands of lawyers have staged an unprecedented walk out in courts of england and wales. barristers protesting against legal aid cuts opted not to attend court proceedings. criminal bar association chair said the walkout had the most backing of almost every law firm. he accused the justice secretary of manipulating official figures to falsely portray lawyers doing criminal aid as high-earning, so-called fat cats. >> is not about money. you have to have the rule of law. it is an item that we need criminal justice. if you trim to the bone the earnings of those representing criminal justice you'll no

icon. it's an existing vehicle redesigned to look like the real thing. >> we tried to capture the essence of the london black cab, but at the same time we tried to bring freshness to the design but also to the execution in terms of quality, reliability, driver comfort, passenger comfort. >> reporter: london's black cab has not changed much in 50 years. they still have that bulky body, the orange light and they still have an amazing turning circle of less than eight meters. they are an indelible part of the city's landscape. this is certainly an ambitious project taking the iconic characteristics of the old london cab with new technician it will produce zero emission.
