11:30 am
situation, in the region of darfur and sudan and this is is a crucial meeting. more schools are being closed in south korea even though the world health organization recommend that they reopen them and so far nine people have died from the murs. our top story now, the u.s. led coalition our senior analyst joins us now so, the announcement today now, to the come the u.s. is going to put a base in anbar and send more troops for training, how would you characterize this decision. in washington it's too little too late and, i don't know it means. it is a bitplar to plan plant
11:31 am
one military base like that. we need to wait to see, the small print if there is, because so far, what it is, unofficially, they are saying that. clearly, the u.s. sees an urgency, and it was a pretext for nothing, and now becoming a justification for it. what prompted it do you think? one of the reasons is that isil as you said, took over mosul a year ago and, the report was that they were going to get kicked out and is this only in iraq or something symptomatic of something larger that's happening in the middle east and, one magazine, one of most pro-american magazines, in europe america is losing the
11:32 am
middle east and iraq is represented as a failure of the u.s. in places like syria and take the matters seriously, in iraq and failure after it led in runed in libya and yemen and, so far, and so what's happening in iraq represents a larger crisis in american foreign policy. how to get things back on track, if you're saying that it's been mismanaged, and how to get things back on track. problem here, in washington, the mindset goes, republican and, democrat. the republican said, it's president barak obama's fault,. it's too political. he outsourced american foreign policy, in iraq to the iranians, even in syria and saudi arabia and iran and
11:33 am
turkey are taking their things in their own hands and america doesn't have much say. the democrats say this mess, was created by president bush, and think that go we can meet and break the middle east and they say they cannot walk back in the footsteps of president bush and, president barak obama will not get involved, so what we do, they're trying to walk a fine line and we're going to help the iraqis help themselves and, turns in syria and soldiers in yemen and don't expect americans to fight your wars for you. unfortunately, it was broken under america's watch. okay.
11:34 am
they now to regain the city. fighters on the offensive and, taking control from libya and, back had by the national congress facing them and culmination of battles and fighters now control all checkpoints in-and-out of the city. fighting has mainly gained between prorevolutionary groups, in tripoli and those that support the you want n. government, both sides have been trying to reach a deal and the government appears guyed on tuesday, some of libya's parliament rejected the u.n. proposal, and they support the gem, the most powerful military commander.
11:35 am
others, in the delegation, have traveled to germany to continue the talks. violence and rivalries have split, and the country has fallen into chaos and since the regime was pushed out of power, rival groups, stepped in to a crowded battleground, and. there are fears south sudan's economy is close to collapse, and falling oil prices, the foreign currency is scarce, and it makes it difficult for a country that imports most of its products. the companies and some of the industries that have been hardest hit by the dollar crunch, and many companies depend on american currency.
11:36 am
we have stocks that have last us for a week. if we don't get dollars to clear the containers, then we'll be forced to stop operations. because of the fall in oil prices and the conflict that started, oil production is low and this is what makes the plastic and, it is blown up, and the granuwells have to be imported and, the dollars from the bank, and the black market rate is too high. when we visited this country, in march, it was running, but huge overhead coast and now the minutes have gone quiet and, people have lost their jobs. half of what we were supplying, right now we cannot afford doing in. one needs a letter of credit from the government to access
11:37 am
dollars from a bank, at a reasonable bang, and those are difficult to come by,. it is thriving, and trading at roughly four times the official rate. what we know, so much on the borrowing, from the sense. and this one, very high cost and, very huge increase. many people have said that the economy is dangerous. the government denies this. it is not in the banks of any collapse, so anybody who says that, is a. wishing bad and, you know, she as people who are enemies. the times are tough for almost everyone in the city and this woman's living cost has more than doubled and, if the conflict ends the sooner the
11:38 am
better, and the leaders are ready to continue the peace negotiations and after it collapsed, she remains optimistic. the german airlines, says that plans to add an extra particular, and the carrier wants to direct carriers through their own site, and in recent year, it has changed expedia and, sky scanner, buy a ticket from the airline and this allows for booking choices. and the decision is the second by an airline in europe or the u.s. many travel analysts believe it will reduce fare transparency, and many say they might follow the strategy. and, vice-president of fare it won't stop people from
11:39 am
shopping around for the best price. i don't believe that people are going to use websites less. the average consumer across the world searches, 4-7 different websites right before they take a trip, so i think that that comparison is going to happen and, some of the loyal lists will go to the airlines of their choice. but i do think, this is something that maybe a trend or maybe a need by the airlines to drive a certain segment straight to their website and we have seen it, here in the united states with southwest airlines who have sold it just on their website. and so maybe it will be a trend, and i think that the customer here will win and, be able to compare all the oversights. more than 8% of adults around the world suffer from diabetes, in the u.s., more than
11:40 am
240 billion dollars is spent every year. many are forced to have their limb amputated. now a treatment produced in cuba is giving new hope. at a diabetes clinic, the patients have one thing in common besides their disease the fear of amputation, a trauma that the 66-year-old has already experienced. about 15 or 20 days ago i hit by foot and, he with i took take a look, my toe was rotting, and i looked to see if they could aye my leg, i already lost one. until eight-years ago his chances, would not be good. and now, it is very good. this is reducing amputations
