2:02 pm
place and people are scared of them. they shoot indiscriminately. francois and his friends say they have had enough. >> translator: they are out of control. we just don't feel safe. all we want is peace. >> reporter: the man in charge is general gendera. he has played a role in the last three cowp coups in burkina fas. he needs to convince the people on the streets. this is what we have been seeing throughout the city. protestors burning tires and straight after that, the presidential guards firing rapid machine guns. and so the crisis continues. after three days of negotiations behind closed doors the u.n. envoy, west africa leaders and diplomats call for a return to civilian rule. they announced an agreement but nothing the coup leaders would sign. >> translator: there are only two options, peace
2:03 pm
reconciliation and compromise and the second one no one wants, deadlock and more chaos. >> reporter: the country's civil so it is worried and disappointed. >> let's be clear. the men behind the coup are shooting civilians. we really have no other options but to continue to fight, resist, an around defend the rue of law at all cost. >> the plts president election s were just two weeks away. now it faces unrest. >> lawrence what is facing the capital where you are? >> reporter: having problems with that line.
2:04 pm
i just want to check he still cannot be heard by us. nicholas can you try talking to us again? no clearly still a problem with the line from the capital of burkina faso, we might try to go back to him a little later, to get the latest on those soldiers marching towards the capital ouagadougo. soldiers that led the coup last thursday. now, alexis tsipras has been sworn in again as prime minister of greece. tsipras called the vote last month after losing his position in the party. in exchange for greece's third international bailout. al jazeera's barnaby phillips joins us live. barnaby we have all got a sense of deja vu haven't we? >> we do. and you saw the symbol of that swearing in ceremony.
2:05 pm
alexis tsipras not wearing a tie, he never does even at an important ceremony of state. in the greek context choosing not to be sworn in in any religious ceremony, purely secular ceremony. nothing from the greek orthodox church. compromise in government, to bring this in a journalist based here in athens. yannis, difficult times ahead for alexis tsipras even after this great victory in the election. >> absolutely. tsipras will have to buckle up and like put forward reforms and cuts that a lot of his predecessors actually shied away from. he will have to do it. he has no choice now. and the mandate he has in many ways, despite the fact people
2:06 pm
don't want austerity, don't agree with austerity, his mandate is to go ahead with this program which is going to put a lot of stress on him and his government. because they will have to do a lot of things they don't believe in and a lot of things that people won't be okay with. some measures that will come up next january, actually, when they will have to start repossessing the houses of people that have failed to keep up their payments on their mortgages et cetera -- >> it's going to be socially explosive if they do that using the police in athens. >> exactly. we will see scenes like go in spain where the riot polices are trying to drive the people from their home. to avoid becoming the image of austerity of layoffs of cuts of destitute pensioners. >> reporter: can they do that and keep the creditors happy at
2:07 pm
the same time? >> well, this is the big bet. and this is where alexis tsipras and his government will be tested in, because there's no way around it. the idea that we would leave the euro and go back to the drachma has been largely discredited not because of its economic merits, but because it has turned out that it's not that easy to do. and we're not even sure that we have the political personnel in the country to take greece through such a difficult transition. >> reporter: greeks have been through five years of economic crisis now, they've endured any number of elections and votes in recent months and years. we've talked a lot over the last 24 hours about a low turnout. how do you assess the mood of the gre greek elect rat yesterd? >> if we want to assess how many didn't turn out, we must
2:08 pm
remember that there is a 30% natural abstention. people don't turn up by 30%. the actual lack of appearing is 13 to 14%, that's really high. i would argue in the last month or so people were just not that interested of these elections, not as much is at stake. everyone who comes in will have to follow the same program. syriza has the same face but the economic and fiscal policies are not there and they are not going to change. people have lived on razor's edge during the last six or seven months during negotiations. i think it's time for peace for most, especially those who are not exactly keen to fight more against the memorandum. >> i'm sure you've just been on lesbos, at the front of the refugee crisis.
2:09 pm
do you think the refugee crisis had any impact on the way people voted to the right or to the he left? >> i think in a small way people had it in the back of their heads that a new democracy government would bring harsher measures against refugees especially since they narrowed a lot of the lines that victor orban in hungary has taken in the last month. so it was a very warming concept to see them coming back to power. >> reporter: in other words, syriza has better than relatively many tolerant of the influx of people into greece in the last months? >> they have been relatively tolerant and done things that people should have done before them to ease the pain and help people who don't want to stay in greece. those people coming here don't want to stay here, keeping them in detention camps or locking them up in an island of 20,000
2:10 pm
people holding another 20,000 refugees this is counterproductive in humane and thank god that didn't happen under syriza. for a lot of people i think that would have been the last straw. >> i believe we have to leave it there for time reasons. felicity, back to you in london. >> barnaby thank you very much indeed. >> more than four and a half thousand me have been killed in yemen since saudi arabia began it campaign in march. as hashem ahelbarra reports there has been no letup in the violence. >> reporter: caught in the cross fire. civilians seek safe shelters in the central city of ta'izz where fighting has flared over the last few days. government troops backed by coalition forces are on the offensive in the province of mareb but progress is slow.
2:11 pm
>> translator: the terrain isn't helpful at all. the houthis have mind most of the fields had this area so we are cautious. yemen's new army hasn't deployed all of its units yet. >> reporter: a year after houthis took over sanaa their leader remains defiant. >> translator: we are confident we will ultimately prevail, we have repelled in the past and will continue in the future and we will continual the fight until we liberate each and every inch. >> freeing hostages, with the help of oman. oman, a senior houthi official and ari fazuka a close aid to former president ali abdullah saleh, trying to mediate a
2:12 pm
political settlement between yemen's warring factions but a peace deal may be a long way. the saudi-led coalition is pounding areas in albada, another houthi stronghold. yemen's internationally recognized government says it will only join talks if the houthis hand over weapons and withdraw from cities they have captured. hashem ahelbarra, al jazeera. >> after a year of conflict in yemen the country's no closer to peace. so let's take a look at the groups engaged this this war. houthis rebels trace their origin to the zaidi branch of islam, named after the man who led their invuks in 200 insurre. iran has been accused of providing the houthis with weapons training and funding.
2:13 pm
coalition of 9 aish states against th9 arab states.secessie arabian peninsula, and finally an armed group linked to the islamic state of iraq and the levant, which emerged in late 2014 and has since claimed responsibility for some bomb attacks against the houthis. >> paulo lembo says efforts to find a way out of this conflict are continuing. >> cannot be solved in a military solution. as we talk we are trying to give it another try. in muskat, a delegation of houthi as you just said arrived yesterday in muskat and we will
2:14 pm
try to convince the side that that is the moment to exercise more flexibility to restart syria's political process. >> all right still to come on this newshour from london, pope francis calls on hundreds of thousands of cubans to overcome their resistance to change. catching up with the crisis, we're in slovenia where authorities seem better prepared for the influx of refugees 30 the country. and the spanish basketball team returns home with another european championship. but fishes at least 32 people have been killed at a government air strikes in aleppo at a popular market there.
2:15 pm
russia's foreign ministry has called for action after a shell landed on its camp in damascus. coordinating their military actions in syria to avoid accidentally trading fire. the announcement was made by benjamin netanyahu, about security on the syrian border. israel has also voiced concern that russian weapons could end up reaching fighters on the border with the golan heights which is israel seized from syria in 1967. al jazeera's pepper sharp reports from moscow. >> reporter: at the end of his meeting with president putin benjamin netanyahu said that both sides had 43rd to coordinate their military action in syria. that -- had agreed to coordinate with their military action in syria opposite number in russia
2:16 pm
white putin immediate with netanyahu, agreed to doornt response tcoordinateto try to gy misunderstandings, the euphemism, to try to avoid any misfires around the sides. advanced surface to air missiles, and in the air you have israeli pilots who are prepared to take on any hezbollah convoys if they feel that those weapons are being smuggled out of syria to the hezbollah bases. so it's a situation that needed urgent attention and they have both sides agreed on that today. >> there have also been some discussions between russia and the u.s. about dealing with i.s.i.l. in syria. let's speak now to joshua landis, the director of international studies, in atlanta. thank you for being on the program. there have been discussions behind the scene that we know about but any suggestion of real
2:17 pm
cooperation between u.s. and russia dealing with a common enemy i.s.i.l? >> it's hard to believe there will be really constructive cooperation. what john kerry secretary of state, talked about is deconflicting. he's worried if russia attacks i.s.i.s. with advanced planes, syrian air force this they could get tangled up with american planes and shoot at each other. he wants to deconflict. this is of course going to force the united states to in a sense begin to coordinate with assad's air force which is something that russia wants. i don't believe that the united states will be drawn into any real cooperation with assad over time. this would damage america's core principles which are human rights, promoting democracy, being against this baathist regime.
2:18 pm
. >> the u.s. has said, assad has to go, no question that's exactly what has to happen. but john kerry did say though assad has to go the timing of his departure could be determined, not only on day 1 or month bun is there any room for maneuver do you think? >> there is a liberal. of course united states does not want assad to fall, they're worried that if assad were to fall, the two other major sides many i.s.i.s, owning about 50% of syrian territory and the el nusra al qaeda brigade, they own syria in the north. bringing down damascus a city of five million people, very bad for the united states. they do not want assad to fall but don't want to be seen to
2:19 pm
work with him in any possible way. so the united states is a bit flummoxed here and russia is trying to take advantage of that to draw it into coordinating with assad. >> does the u.s. accept that russia really has to have some part to play in eventually solving the mess that is syria and how much of a part would it be prepared to allow russia to have? >> that's a real question. russia in this recent move has laid down a marker saying assad is going to stay, the syrian regime is going to stay and they're going to have to be part of any solution. the united states although it says it wants a political solution, the entire sunni opposition turkey, the united states, all insist that the syrian regime has to go and by that, they mean the aloite dominated security state. and that is of course what assad is fighting for and many of the minorities in syria and wealthy
2:20 pm
sunnies as well in damascus and other cities are frightened that if that security state falls they are all going to be driven out of the country or something bad is going to happen to them. so it's very hard to see how this is going to end without some deep compromise. >> it's interesting joshua because a couple of weeks ago we were reporting on al jazeera about i think it was a leaked document of an u.n. envoy de mastura, talking about the possibilities of transitional government. most analysts thought that was an initial document, that in would be wo have to be compromise before a transitional government would emerge. >> there's not going to be transitional government, that is pie in the sky. assad won't allow it, the aloites won't allow it. probably what would happen, they're not going to let go. if this regime goes it's not
2:21 pm
going to be in some graduated you know process of handing power over to the rebels. it will be because it is defeated. >> really good to get your thoughts on this, very complex subject, joshua landis joining us from oklahoma, thank you for joining yo us. >> pleasure to be with you. whether iran sought to develop nuclear weapons, the iaea's chief made the comments following a trip to iran over the weekend. the trip included a visit to the contentious parchin site. first time the agency last been able to visit the site. a car bomb has exploded at the gates of somalia's presidential palace, at least five people were killed in the capital mogadishu. as yet no claim of responsibility. the palace is the official home
2:22 pm
of the president prime minister and parliament speaker. stocks have suffered their biggesbiggest fall ever of volk. facing more questions over whether i.t. happened in europe as well. jonah hull reports. >> this was the frankfurt international motor show on monday, the volkswagen stand under the bonnet a dark secret, revealed last week by the environmental protection agency in the united states. volkswagen it says has been falsifying data for years to embellish the clean air credentials of its much prized turbodiesel tdi engine. in early trading on monday the company's stock lost to up to a quarter of its value. >> translator: at the time cost vast amounts of money and there is a threat not just of fines but also class action
2:23 pm
lawsuits. what's also very important: volkswagen's image is severely damaged. >> reporter: the news for the makers of the people's car, the famous beetle famously remade could get much worse. >> they're ordering volkswagen to recall about half a million diesel powered vehicles, jetta, golfs and beetles primarily. epa is talking about a fine potentially $18 billion which would be the highest ever levied against an auto maker. >> 18 billion is an enormous amount of money. half a million recalled in the u.s. to return to proper functioning and the german government has just announced an emissions inquiry into vehicles sold in europe and you can see the potential for total
2:24 pm
catastrophe for volkswagen gets bigger and bigger. nor does it stop there. vw has set its proper courts on engines to use clean diesel, the very idea is cast into doubts. >> diesel has been shown to produce noxious gases, the viability of volkswagen, investing that much in clean diesel strategy, that will be a very material blow. >> it is colossally damaging for brand. what if everything was as viable as a vng? the ceo has been forced to apologize. greg archer chem chemist and environmentalist who specializes
2:25 pm
with clean vehicle technology. if vw actually has the ability to control the emissions from its diesel cars when they are being tested why not have those controls when cars are being driven around the roads every day? >> well there's two main reasons. the first is that some of the emissions control equipment leads to the car having slightly poorer fuel economy, slightly higher co2 emissions, that affects the tax having to be levied on the vehicle. some of this technology uses a substance called urea to remove the nitrogen oxides from the exhaust and gets used up in the process therefore it has to be refilled. and to avoid its customers being inconveniences rconvenienced ree
2:26 pm
urea tanks. >> how much less convenient is it looking at this situation? >> the limentsd limits are strin the u.s. 60 milligrams compared to 80 milligrams here in europe. but in addition to that the testing system is much more rigorous overall. the u.s. throrts actually take cars off the production line, and they test them in their own laboratories. but they don't here in europe. what we have is preproduction cars actually being tested which are specially prepared for the tests and not enough checks being done to make sure that the cars people buy actually achieve the same performance. >> do you think that vw is the only car maker that has this, for want of a better word, loophole that it uses during the emission test? >> no i'd be very surprised if its problem is limited to the
2:27 pm
u.s. and i'd be very surprised if other manufacturers were not using the same types of defeat devices that the vw has been caught by the u.s. environmental protection agency using. the reason for that is because we know if you measure the amount of nitrogen oxide coming from these vehicles on the road, many ploadle produc models prods more pollution than they're actually loud to. this is a pointer to the fact that there's something very strange happening in these laboratory tests where they're able to produce much lower levels of pollution. we need the european authorities to investigate the way the u.s. authorities are doing. >> greg archer thanks so much. >> all right, news just coming in on our main story this hour that the leader of the coup in burkina faso has apologized to the nation and says he will hand
2:28 pm
over power to a civilian government. reminder of course that the regular army was sending troops into the capital ouagadougo to try to take on the coup leaders and get them to disarm but the leader of that coup has now said authority to the nation and said he will hand over power to a civilian deposit. government. more on that as soon as we get it. also still to come on the newshour, as millions of muslims arrive for the hajj, the logistical challenges for saudi arabia. >> it's tough because you constantly feel like you're beating your head against a wall that no one is living. >> lyme disease sufferers in canada say their concerns are not being faced seriously.
2:29 pm
>> police investigation over corruption, full details in sport.
2:30 pm
2:31 pm
>> he was so ahead of his time. >> father junipero serra was so devastating to native american cultures. >> we have suffered greatly, what kind of saint would allow that? >> and you're gonna let the pope know? >> absolutely.
2:32 pm
>> welcome back. a reminder of the top stories hear on al jazeera, the leader of burkina faso has apologized and promised to hand over power to legitimate thorlts or face the consequences. the french president francois hollande says it is suspending financial and military cooperation with burkina faso until a return of the interim government. in other news, it is a year since houthi rebels captured its capital, sanaa. and greece's prime minister alexis tsipras has been sworn in after winning general elections. hungary has now passed new
2:33 pm
laws allowing the army to join the police at its borders. also giving police power to use weapons. hundreds of refugees have been trying to board trains otake them to croatia. victor orban has reiterated his stance. >> until there is a united european stance, members of the european union will be forced to protect themselves from this brutal threat at grave costs. >> hungary has taken the unusual steps of posting newspaper ads targeting refugees. warning people not to attempt to enter hungarian territory illegally. anybody enters hungary without permission will be punished. croatia has just erected a temporary refugee camp close to
2:34 pm
its eastern border with syria. it's estimated at least 30,000 refugees have entered croatia this last week alone. growing evidence that european countries which had claimed they couldn't cope with the influx of refugees are now managing to move them more successfully north through the continent. border crossings which had been packed with people are gradually emptying as refugees are bussed from slovenia and austria. lawrence lee reports. >> as chaotic as this sump's been, it is now becoming clear that refugees might hope that their journey might be a little quicker, a little less painful. but this reception is center in the slovenia town, they are on the way to austria and germany are they happy about it. >> it is quicker.
2:35 pm
these countries totally excuse. >> when will you go to austria do you think? >> maybe today after lunch. >> on the train? >> yes on the train. >> like its neighbors to the southeast slovenia is showing a sense of logistical awareness. they are aware that the movements of people from serbia is getting faster. it shows on a basic level that europe is finally showing a bit of organization. >> it is true. we have 250 beds available here. the refugees change every day. as soon as 250 leave the next people arrive. >> reporter: so the next bus turns up, off they come and they're asked to go in. the reason slovenia can cope with the influx of refugees in relatively small reception centers is because the turnover so fast. refugees we're told only spend about 12 hours here, have a
2:36 pm
rest, get changed, and move on, that frees up bed space for next wave to come. even staying just a few hours was too much for this group. they refused to go in said they just wanted to go to the railway station. after weeks of being herded around by various police organization he. they just want to go on. >> thank you slovenia, bus station train station that's it. >> the $18 tickets will take them to the other side of the austrian border. what they didn't know you could get a train from here straight to the netherlands but staff has been told the refugees must go through yet another system in austria. something is working now, countries have given up trying keep people from going where they want to. lawrence lee, al jazeera,
2:37 pm
slovenia. 18% are from just three countries, syria, afghanistan and iraq, according to the latest figures. getting out of those countries is not just fraught with danger. as imran khan points out it can be extremely expensive as well. >> all across baghdad you see signs like these, they offer visa services, more than that they offer hope and the chance to leave the violence of iraq. some of these offer legitimate services but others operate illegally. they defraud of thousands much dollars. masem is one of them. he doesn't want to reveal his identity, he is afraid. >> i spoke with him he told me there will be a commercial fare taking place soon in sweden and that he would be able to arrange an invitation from a swedish
2:38 pm
company who would sponsor me. all i had to do was go to turkey, to pick up the visa there. they asked me for $15,000 for expenses and fees. i left the money, the visa never came. i called the third party who held my money only to find out he is an accomplice, only to tell me the smuggler knows your family, it would be easy for him to target you, kill your son. i was scared and had no choice but to let him keep the money. >> authorities are investigating the people who operate the visa fraud but no case ves been brought to court. rise in numbers of people seeking to get out of iraq. >> translator: realistically speaking we can't ban iraqis from leaving, we are aiming to educate them and warning them
2:39 pm
the danger of the journey. we know this is a problem and we're looking into it. >> reporter: there are no accurate figures for how much money the visa fraud industry is worth or how many people have been defrauded because no one's willing to go to the police and report such crimes. during the course of al jazeera's investigation we uncovered several alleged cases amounting to hundreds of thousands of dollars. it would seem there are many like masem hoem who are desperao pay. jordan lebanon apply for your visa there so that combined with the violence and the misery of living in iraq mean the smugglers and the fraudsters have a willing market they want to exploit and they take them for thousands of dollars. imran khan, al jazeera, baghdad.
2:40 pm
>> want to take you back to the main news auto of burkina faso where there are reports that the coup leader there says he will hand over power to our civilia n government. nicholas hak is there. what have you learned. >> he promises to turn over to the interim government paving way to elections. as the news is announced there are already people in the streets going to the place of the inflation, center square of the nation celebrating. meanwhile the military are still moving towards the capital and as they go through villages, they're greeted with celebration and cheers. the presidential powers that were in control of the capital have returned back to their
2:41 pm
barracks. >> it does sound as if the coup leader's hand has been forced by the decision of the mainstream military to send troops into the capital ouagadougo to try disarm the coup leaders? >> absolutely. he put out a statement yesterday warning the presidential guards to stop shooting civilians. i think the framework agreement, when the announcement was made to the public what the frame work agreement that the leaders had come up with, the civilians were really disappointed by that and that really pushed the army to stay action to take control of the country. because throughout this coup for the last five days the presidential guard has been very violent, ten people died, hundreds injured. >> very tense situation in burkina faso.
2:42 pm
events fast-moving there in the capital ouagadougo, nicholas, we'll be talking to you much more in the next few hours, thank you. a dispute over teacher pay has led to the closure of all public schools in kenya. the government says it can't afford to give pay raises. catherine soy reports. >> this shelter is small and stuffy but with school closed, it is one of the few places children go. the shelter was started buy nonprofit organization years ago, to help a handful of children with their after school tuition. since the strike started three weeks ago, hundreds have been turning up but not only to study but to have a hot mug of porridge. many don't have enough at home. >> can you convince the country cannot pay their teachers? >> who do you have to blame? >> we have to blame the
2:43 pm
government. >> all public schools have been closed indefinitely. there is so much mistrust between the teachers and the government. the teachers insist that the government is not being sincere and all the while it's millions of children in schools like this one who continue to lose out. >> if the award were paid to teachers, the salaries and remuneration commission would have no choice and would be forced to harmonize wages across the entire public sector. and based on last year's tax revenue our wage bill would therefore rise from 52% to 61% of all revenues collected. >> reporter: teachers continue to protest and they have the support of many kenyans.
2:44 pm
analysts say politics and emotion have overshadowed economics around the strike. >> what the government has never done is let kenyans understand we are very proud people, very hardworking people but that notwithstanding we are a very poor country. >> left to the courts if these kids will go back to school very soon. ruling on the legality of the strike. 280,000 teachers say they listen to the courts but until then they say they won't back down. catherine soy, al jazeera, nairobi, kenya. >> millions of muslims have arrived in mecca. the annual hajj. meant to cleanse the soul of
2:45 pm
sin. the organizers in the city it presents a massive logistical challenge. omar al slea saleh reports. >> more than 2 million people are expected to arrive in mecca to perform the hajj. now on tuesday the pilgrims will leave mecca then they will go to minna. on wednesday is the main day of the hajj, the problem there or the fear there is that all the people all the pilgrims will converge and perform their ritual at one time, the challenge there is to control their movement and to make sure they move safely without any stampedes or any incident. the hajj is already overshadowed by a tragic incident, a crane fell and killed 107 people and
2:46 pm
wounded more than 200. let me tell you why that incident happened. because the grand mosque has turned into a big massive construction site. the authorities want to expand the capacity of the mosque to allow people to converge to come to mecca to perform the pilgrimage. it's blamed the incident on bad weather and also misuse of the heavier equipment. the main contractor was suspended however the government is going according to plan. and also the incident didn't disturb the many pil pilgrims to perform the hajj this year. pope francis addressed the crowd in cuba in revolution square. third day of the pope's historic visit to the country. >> translator: to serve means to care for the vulnerable in

2:48 pm
how ticks carrying lyme disease get to canada. they're not cured but between bouts of ill health, at his microscope in a spare bedroom, squinting at creatures that have changed his life. >> i lost lots of clouds through the window but the tick research has helped to motivate me and give me a purpose to figure out what's going on. >> reporter: among his findings dozens of areas in canada could have tick populations that could carry lyme disease. even here in a park in the middle of canada's largest city there are risks. this is the perfect habitat for ticks yet, the question remains, why isn't this country taking the disease seriously enough. >> most doctors don't believe in
