living in poverty, it is estimated that 7.6 million people are displaced within syria, while almost 4 million more have fled the country and are living in refugee camps. al jazeera james because reports. four years ago no one could have imagined the scale of this tragedy. it is estimated as many as 300,000 syrians have died. 3.8 million are refugees that figure the main contributor to the fact there are more displaced people in the world than any time since the second world war that's when the u.n. was created almost 70 years ago. there's been little unity on the global stage. >> there have been rare moments of agreement in the security council on chemical
5:03 pm
weapons and the growing threat from isil. it is nothing on a political solution to the dismay of the agencies one ovators agencies the world food program is led by cousin. >> you must get frustrated when you look at the lack of agreement. >> i get frustrated not only when i look at the security council, when i go into syria and you see that there is no solution in site, and i talk to the government, and the oppositions and they are firm in their positions and then i look at the empoo. and i say don't they see what i see can't they see the impact that their failure to compromise is creating. >> over the past four years the main effort to find a political solution to special envoys. former secretary general veteran diplomate and now
5:04 pm
another seasoned u.n. official stefan dim ma. four months ago he told security council he hadden a ambitious plan for series of what he called freezes across syria. the first one was supposed to be in aleppo. he later agreed that he had an agreement to stop all aerial bombardment in aleppo, for a six week period. >> since then, the plan has stalls. diplomates are now very skeptical of the chances of success, and for now there is no plan b syrians will continue to suffer and many more are bound to die. well joining now via skype is william spindler spokesman for the refugee agency, thank you for joining us here on al jazeera here on al jazeera
5:05 pm
the situation in syria and beyond is dreadful, you obviously work for a u.n. agency do you think this condemnation of the u.n. of the security council is justified. >> well, clearly momented begin to political solution to the conflict in syria. and the international community seemed to be paralyzed and unable to find a political settlement. this was a crisis in the world today, 3.9 million refugees mostly in the neighboring countries and the impact of this population in this is tremendous people who need to be fed and housed electricity and water need to be provided
5:06 pm
and many syrians are not finding the living conditions that they need and therefore are continuing their journeys on wards and some of them are now in europe as well. >> following that, it is very interesting there's been a proposal from one of your colleagues at the u.n.h.c. europe. talk to us about the reassessing the moving of syrian refugee whose are arriving mainly let's say to italy or greece, obviously the southern coast of europe relocating many of them to northern europe. what luck has he had in actually trying to convince the northern european nations to do their share in helping out. >> some of them are drowning trying to. we cannot continue to see
5:07 pm
people dying in large numbers in the mediterranean that's why we are calling for a number of proposals, to be implemented by the european union, we need to be create i, we need to find bold solutions because this cannot continue. proposing a number of options of things that can be done. such as increasing the rescue so that people don't die in the mediterranean, but also finding legal values for some refugees to come to europe, through the settlement, so the humanitarian, through family reunification, and other options. also we have to look into this
5:08 pm
because the situation can't continue. >> we keep hearing stories coming to the shores and a country says they do, they have for years rescued a lot of refugees controlling from syria, but then they have to apply for asylum in the country they first reach and that seems to be a first stumbling block. what i am wondering is whether you know any colleague of yours has perhaps had any luck in trying to convince the european nations to change that so that refugees can apply for asylum anywhere regardless of where they first land. >> one of the proposals is so from a more equal share, of refugees within europe. at the moment, most of them are arriving in two countries italy, and greece. but most of them move on to other european countries and
5:09 pm
claim asylum in germany sweden, just the two countries account for 57% of all occupation by syrians in europe so clearly there is an imbalance. we want the union to imply mechanisms so that it can be shared, for instance refugees could go to other european countries than italy and greece, and we are in discussions with the european union, because there are proposals and we hope that the political will will there to find solutions to what are very complex problems it is indeed, but i guess a lot of syrian refugees would still harbor hope, that eventually they can go home, do you think perhaps as resources would be
5:10 pm
better spent in helping the refugee camps that we are seeing in the neighbors cunning of syria so asking the european nations to maybe don't want to take on syrian refugees to contribute financially, so that the refugee camps let's say in turkey, or lebanon can be better financed? >> that's correct. the number of syrians arriving in europe is too small. we are talking about 200,000 compares to 3.9 million syrian refugees mostly in countries such as turkey, lebanon jordan, which are straining under the impact of this. so we believe that these countries need help, because refugees should receive the protection that they need, close to home because most of them would like to return home as soon as possible, and europe would be better served by helping syrian refugees in
5:11 pm
jordan, in lebanon, in turkey, rather than not helping this countries and making it necessary for syrians to come all the way to europe in search for the living conditions that they -- the safety that they need. >> sir, thank you so much for having joined us here on al jazeera, thank you. >> thank you security in ferguson missouri will be handed over to st. louis county police, and missouri state highway patrol. the decision comes after two police officers were shot at a rally on wednesday night. over the resignation of the police chief. jackson quit following a scathing report about racially based practices within local law enforcement. let's go straight live now to ferguson. and actually i think we can

campaign last year, steal has faced international dend mas to ease it's blockade but the conflict 11 def state, and left more than 100,000 homeless. the block kate is intended to restrict goods that could be used to build under ground tunnels but the embargo has impoverished the other poor territory, where more than half of the people receive food aid from the united nations. while many support the aiding of the blockade, questions are already being asked about how long it will last. the import is largely to make up for a short fall in israeli produce caused by a biblical year meaning that once that is over, the restrictions can be put back in place. >> in yemen thousands of houthies are holding military

5:26 pm
security council which is to fail sit tate a process that can lead to an agreement on how to put back on track the political transition that is now in disarray obviously countries of the region are worries and for very good reason the security council and the highest body in terms of peace and security is also worried about the situation and that's why yemen is on the agenda the situation can get out of hand, and if there is no agreement the prospects are very bleak. it will be a combination of scenarios libya and iraq, and that's why. everybody is aware that every effort should be made to promote a peaceful way forward. >> a libyan t.v. channel has aired what it claims is a new leaked recording that shows the office of egyptian president offering support to former gaddafi loyalist.

5:28 pm
similar leaks anything in this one that stuck out for you? >> i think it is a weekly occurrence, and almost, and what we see is really something of a difference. we know how they effect the politics of the region, and the locals. they have done some work on and how they impact the regional politics but this is just beyond any theories. this is what we saw admitting on tape, to fraud, to regional patrons to creating and embezzling money we saw giving directives and instructions to media talk show hosts. we heard the prosecutor general staking instructions from generals, and also instructions given to judges but now we are seeing something the regional impact
5:29 pm
of which is mainly a spoiler plan for the u.n. backed peace efforts in libya more or less the decision chose to back one side, and take down what was in libya and financed by the u.a.e. and the in the middle of this, you have figures that are a wanted internationally has a warrant against him for alleged crimes against humanity. and a figure that declared publicly support for isis on local egyptian t.v. so you have a very complicated package, really, i think the impunity whether domestic or international is what is keeping them going in the this what is interesting this is libyan t.v., and other ones are being given to egyptian t.v., who do you think is leaking and b how damaging do
5:30 pm
you think this action is? for president sisi. >> it is difficult to know who is leaking, there is a few scenarios the more likely one is it is an internal job. with multiple factions, multiple personalities. and possibly they are taping to each other. either somebody has access to one of those data bases of tapes so egyptian snowdens if you wish, or you had one of them that is unhappy, one of the factions one of the figures is unhappy with what is going on and decided to leak something all of this so far is warning signs. they are all warning shots telling him, behave our way or we have more against you how effective i think it is more damage to reputation. what is going on in egypt.

5:39 pm
in launching an assault. and not far away on the front lines, ukrainian troops too tell us they expect an assault and they are convinced it is pro-russian separatist whose will launch it. >> in the this village there are sporters for the rebels and mortar operators from the army. now we are strengthening trenches preparing to respond to their attack. >> each side accuses the other of violating the cease fire, and the ban on heavy weapons. but both seem to agree that it is rebel forces shown here training this week, that would launch a new offensive. while the i believe ares say they want the cease fire to hold there might be military reasons for them to launch a new battle. the u.s. intelligence firm seized three potential scenarios, rebels could take the port city and create a land bridge from russian to cry mere yeah, annexed by russia last year, or they can take the entire southern coast connecting russia with the
5:40 pm
break away republic. where 2,000 rush troops are already stationed. in the most ambition and least luckily, pro russian separatists could take all of eastern ukraine to the river a plan that would require at least 90,000 russian troops. there might be a higher likelihood that the rebels break the cease fire because they were winning momentum. whereas the government in kiev have more to gain now by focusing on the economy rather than focusing so much on the eastern parts of the ukraine. >> a renewed conflict would further rat testimony already traumatized residents of eastern ukraine. and an international community that has loudly lamented then co flick but is otherwise done little more than watch the crisis unfold. al jazeera donetsk eastern ukraine. >> the european union has called the killing of russian opposition activists the most
