jazeera. hell job welcome to the newshour in doha, the top stories on al jazeera - still waiting and still starving. aid agencies say it will be monday at the earliest before help reaches besieged communities in syria emergency meeting in cairo worried about freedom of speech, dozens gather in hong kong to ask what happened to booksellers.
5:01 am
argentina's robin hood - why thousands flock to the grave of a soldiers turned outlaw for blessings. tens of thousands of people who are starving to death in three syrian towns will have to wait at least another day before help reaches them. aid agencies hoped the trucks with food and medicine would arrive on sunday. some are so desperate that they are eating leaves and grass. aid agencies have supplies of food and medicine ready to leave damascus, and hope that the first trucks arrive, besieged by the government. supplies will be delivered to two towns 250km away. opposition groups are surrounding the towns. there are many areas not included in the deal. in eastern ghouta, 176,000 are
5:02 am
said to be cut off. 9,000 are trapped in the damascus suburb of dahlia, and in the western town of zab u darny. and i.s.i.l. fighters cut off some 200,000 people in parts of the eastern city of deraa zor. now we go live to beirut. why is it taking so long to get this desperately needed aid to these people. >> well, as you just referred to, we are talking about two distinct areas in syria. so you have government forces, in their eye, and you have rebel forces in the towns in idlib. that means all the sides evolved have to agree to the aid coming in, and it has to come in smult annously before that happens, a deal was made. it dates back to september. in september there was a u.n. brokered deal. turkey and iran helping to
5:03 am
negotiate. there was a ceasefire agreed in the areas. last week there was fighters above madaya and idlib. that brings us to this third stage now, where it is becoming possible to deliver aid, and again, it has to be at the same time otherwise the different sides will not be in agreement. >> what about people in the rest of the country, people who are not part of the agreement? >> that's right. i mean, we are talking about just a small proportion of the 400,000 people who were living in towns and cities under siege at the moment. a huge number of people who are not getting aid. particularly in deraa sore, that you referred to. i.s.i.l. fighters holding something like 200,000 people. incredibly difficult aid groups. the u.n., for example, last year, put in plans to deliver aid to various parts of syria. they were only able to get aid to 10% of the areas. >> many thanks.
5:04 am
>> caroline malone in beirut. >> the u.n. envoy to syria arrived in the uranium capital to lay grounds for pose talks. >> the government says that it is ready for talks, but expressed concern about who is invited. it says terrorist groups should be excluded. they'll go on to meet opposition members in istanbul on monday. joining us now is a member of the syrian national coalition. he is live with us via skype. >> let's start with the humanitarian situation first, and a plea to getting aid to people who are starving. how much responsibility does the opposition - groups like yours - bear for this delay? >> it's basically the regime decision was from the beginning
5:05 am
to stop the aid from many areas in syria. it started this policy. the national coalition does not accept whether they are subject to a crime against humanity. and war crime. i would say the regime is responsible for this. it is acting like a gang, not a state. and should not have affected this starvation siege from the beginning. >> what does all of this mean for the prospect of peace talks. one syrian opposition group said it's unacceptable to talk about political solutions to the war with people dying of hunger. and with the bombardment continuing. this is what the opposition is after, is confidence building
5:06 am
measures. basically the ending of starvation sieges, and halting the army of civilians in the populated areas, and releasing of political prisoners, these are confidence-building measures mentioned in the latest security council resolution 2254. the opposition is asking for such measures to start before. this means that humanitarian - humanitarian demands to relieve some pressure on the people before such things start. >> it's politics then. you are saying it's holing up this aid to stop people starving to death. >> i'm sorry, what do you mean again. >> it's politics that is holding
5:07 am
this up. there may be a war raging. at the moment it's the fact that people won't talk to each other. it's held up to stop people starving to death. >> it's not that. even in a conflict like this, and in a war like this, which is not international war, internal war, the international law and geneva convention prohibits the - such siege - starvation siege. this is considered according to international law as a crime. a war crime. and a crime against humanity. so the regime should not have done that from the beginning, and this is basically not acceptable even in an armed conflict like this. >> what are we to make of the government's concerns about who is being invited to the peace talks. the government says that it won't talk with certain groups
5:08 am
that it brands terrorists. >> well, the government is recording all oppositions, i was in geneva two years ago, and the government inside the room, the government delegation told us that you are traitors, and you are terrorists, and if you go to syria, you will be hounded to death - something like that. >> the government is talking about terrorism in one hand. on the other side they are talking about solutions. this is a conversation that - it's a political problem. people want a change, a political solution, and the government as a part of defending themselves, they are calling their opposition as terrorists. the government does not have the right, of course, to choose who are the delegation who are going to talk with the government. they are going to go there with
5:09 am
armed factions, as political blocks. of course, excluding the parties who are already trying by the united nations council as terrorists who are daesh, other the arrests are legitimate freedom fighters. >> thank you for being with us iraqi forces have retaken parts of ramadi from i.s.i.l. control. the government is claiming almulab and al-safia. the government declared it had taken control of most of ramadi two weeks ago. >> an arab league summit is expected to be dominated by the tension between iran and saudi arabia. it follows a meeting of gulf leaders in riyadh on saturday. saudi arabia cuts diplomatic ties with iran after its embassy was stormed by protesters a week
5:10 am
ago. they were angry by the execution of a cleric. we are joined by a scholar. it's one thing getting the g.c.c. on side to oppose iran. it's another thing entirely getting the arab league to do so. will saudi arabia get what it wants. >> i think they started the campaign against what happened in the embassy in tehran. that is the second step of that campaign, particularly after the g.c.c. now. supporting its position. the arab league would be discussing the same. saudi arabia has interest to see more arab states supporting its position against iran. it's not only attacking the embassy, it's beyond that. having more support. >> which arab league nations are likely to oppose this.
5:11 am
i mean, one thinks iraq immediately. possibly lebanon. maybe lebanon, maybe algeria. but at least - i mean, the motion will be supported by 15-18 arab countries, which are enough to support the motion. >> is anyone at the arab league, any of the arab nations mediating in the dispute between saudi arabia, de-escalating the tensions? >> there was expectation, as unusual between what has been done before iran and the united states. but it seems that they have a strong position. they have no interest to open a discussion with iran. they want to make sure that iran is respecting the saudi position and arab interests. unless iranians show more flexibility, they seem to be behind the position. >> good to talk to you as always. >> iran is denying that it fired
5:12 am
several rockets near a fleet of u.n. warships. the u.n. navy released a video showing the incident. saying it happened as the warships sailed through a busy war ship. and regards, the spokesman said that the accusation is false and similar to psych logical warfare. >> here with the newshour, still to come. we are with northern iraq where an art project is helping syrian refugee children deal with the traumas of war. plus a hollywood actor leads the police to a wanted drug lord. and in sport, 5 star poor performance for real madrid as they ensure a memorable start for zinadad zidane egypt's new parliament is
5:13 am
meeting for the first time in four years, and will choose a speaker. the previous parliament was dissolved by court order. the new chamber was dominated by an alliance. >> it wasn't too long ago when egyptians took hours to vote in a free and parliamentary election. just months after the january 25th uprising, these were the scenes outside polling stations outside egypt. by january 2012, the muslim brotherhood had an overwhelming majority. president mubarak and his allies were tried in court. laws banning torture and long periods of detention without trial were passed. it appears that egypt's resolution was bearing fruit. that did not survive a year.
5:14 am
the top court ruled that it should be dissolved. the following month, the muslim brotherhood mohamed mursi was voted in as the first democratically elected president. he then tried to reinstate the parliament, but the court overruled him. 2013, mohamed mursi was deposed in a military coup. he, together with the speaker of parliament and dozens of others were thrown in gaol. when the coup was announced. the general promised to hold parliamentary elections within months, the polls didn't take place until two years later. by then, abdul fatah al-sisi had become president. new parliamentary elections were held last year, and the new legislature began its work on sunday. it's similar to the parliament of 2010. which has ended the mubarak regime, and the wars, one of the
5:15 am
main reasons of 25 january revolution. >> president abdul fatah al-sisi supporters say this is the right step in enshrining a long-promised democracy in egypt. critics say a parliament dominated only strengthened the president. egypt's new parliament must ratify dozens of laws put in place bit the interim leader, including those restricting protests and an anti-terror law limiting press freedoms and giving police vast powers an associate professor of political science of the doha institute says that this parliament is representative of the egyptian people. >> there are many doubt in this parliament that it would have an impact or be affected legislative body. first of all, the parliament
5:16 am
does not reflect the will of the people. it's very low - i'm mean, about 30%, if we took the official numbers. the second point is the then the majority of the parliament is pro-abdul fatah al-sisi. it's nothing more than a rubber-stamp for the government. >> it's coming to power. abdul fatah al-sisi is ruling by presidential decree. is the parliament necessary? >> on theory, it is. the president should be part of what has been called a couple of 2013. and it is supposed to be the third test in the roadmap. >> it's an important step for abdul fatah al-sisi, enhancing legitimacy. particularly internationally. >> will it play any great role politically in the future of egypt. >> i don't think so, as i said before, this parliament is nothing more than a rubber-stamp for the parliament.
5:17 am
the majority of members came through a process that was designed and constructed by state authorities, particularly the intelligence. so the loyalty of members of the parliament is not for the people, but for the state. >> what do egyptian people want at the moment? >> i think - this is a tough question, frankly. i think a need to be represented accurately. they want someone to speak on their behalf. be someone that can get the rights from this, which the parliament would do this job. >> in terms of window dressing, as far as the international community is concerned. this is what abdul fatah al-sisi wants and needs, isn't it? >> absolutely. abdul fatah al-sisi would use the parliament as a tool to enhance legitimacy, particularly internationally. he thinks that to have such
5:18 am
parliament. it means a stability issue, and it would be contrary to who people say. it's very important instrument for abdul fatah al-sisi to say that we have sfability, we have a legitimate process. >> if abdul fatah al-sisi assesses this, what is he likely to say. >> i think the main point is do your best. try to reflect people's demands, which he knows very well. but he will try to prays them, that they were lifted. i think that this - there won't be any significant things that they would see to the parliament. the last parliament was dissolved by a course, a decree. is there any danger of this parliament befalling the same fate. >> it might be. if we look at the electoral system. that the elections. that they use this in the last
5:19 am
few weeks. some say this might be a constitutional, because the distribution on the geographical basis, so i think it might. i say that this is a constitutional parliament. and it can be dissolved by the supreme court now, ethiopian security forces have been accused of killing 140 people over the past two months in a crackdown on dissent. protesters may lead if from the ethnic group fear that development processes will take over their land. dozen of demonstrators have been killed, live to the capital. charles stratford is there. you have been speaking to the government about this. what has been said? >> that's right. we spoke to the minister of information here, and the government, as you say admitted that dozens of people were killed by security forces in the crackdown on an romo protests.
5:20 am
the government says that these people admit that these are longstanding issues, writes that they were initially peacefully protesting for. the protests were hijacked by what it describes as elements encouraged, funded by what a described as foreign terrorists organizations. >> the roman reason is the largest group. the we travelled in an area west of the capital, which is traditionally historically been very vehemently anti-government. this is where the protests began. this is our report. >> reporter: a member of the ethiopian security forces shot this mouther in the neck during the recent protests. when the conditions deteriorated in hospital. she insisteded her father take her back to her village so she
5:21 am
could see her children. >> translation: we went to demonstrate. they allowed us to pass the first checkpoint. at the second. someone threw a stone. security forces took action. people threw themselves on the ground. >> people are afraid to talk. this man insisted we hide his identity, saying police in his town arrest men that gather in groups of more than two. >> our future is uncertain. we don't know whether we'll be detained or killed. we are so afraid we don't like walking on the streets. >> the government admits security killed dozens in the crack done, and promised to launch an investigation into who is responsible for those deaths. the people living here said they have hope that they will get justice, or the longstanding political demands will be met. >> this is the largest ethnic group in ethiopia, long complaining that the government
5:22 am
ignored economic and political rights. al jazeera has no way of independently verifying the video uploaded on the internet. protests were sparked by opposition to the government integrated development plan. the government says it's aimed at improving the services and developing the region around the capital. but many of the roma call it unconstitutional. activist members say security killed around 140 people. hundreds of others have been wounded, arrested and detained. >> the problem with the government is simply the government is trying to avoid it. many are fed up. especially of the young people. they lost hope. >> the government admits the aroma people have legitimate
5:23 am
concerns that it needs to address, and says it has suspended the integrated development plan, and blames the violence on individuals with links to what it describes as a terrorist organization. >> the implementation of the plan is basically a question which only the people have the finance of. back at the home. her son is too young to have any say in his future. he hopes his mother doesn't die thousands of protesters marched in hong kong demanding answers over the disappearance of five publishers. the men are linked to a shop selling books. they have been missing for the past two months. let's go live to hong kong. >> rob mcbride is at the protest. how well supported has it been. >> the organizers say upwards of
5:24 am
500,000 plus people have turned out. they were expecting the numbers to be in the hundreds. since the days of the occupied movement, the umbrella movement. a lot of protesters have been disappointed as far as organizers have been concerned. this is an issue that galvanized the different groups here in the pan democratic camp. all the usual parties took part. and many thousands of hong kong people concerned about what this means, and the tension that the publishers will lead to a one country, two systems, the guarantee by which hong kong has a certain amount of autonomy. people see it as being eroded in the political sphere. as far as people here are concerned, they are worried about the 12 o'clock knock, the possibility that they can be
5:25 am
detained across the border. one of the publishers are thought to be detained in the hong kong official. the protest is coming to an end. it's an angry affair. people filing past of the chinese government. >> you mentioned this man, issuing a video message, appealing for people not to come out and protest. >> that all ads to the intrigue of this. the plot thickens. a mainland newspaper has shown levo's wife has received another letter, but they say a video, they are not saying how they know this came to pass. by which they are saying please don't make a fuss. i came here out of my own volition, and don't come out in protest. none of the protesters believe any of that. they believe it was made under duress. in the past week a couple of
5:26 am
well placed editorials said intriguingly, having confirmed that china is holding the five publishers. if they were producing materials threatening stability, beijing, they say they have the right to tark action. people take it as a tacit admission that china has detained the five people, and they would do it again. >> thank you. rob mcbride reporting live from hong kong. >> time to baton down the hatches in part of the pacifics. nasty weather on the way. meteorologist steph joins us. >> it looks small, don't be fooled. look at it, it's tiny, like this tiny little donut. it's more ferocious than it looks. if we zoom in, from north to south it's 500-600km. it's a large system. this is fiji here, this is vanuatu and new caledonia. that is where we are, and that is where the storm is.
5:27 am
the eye of the storm is less than 100km from the southern most island of vanuatu. it's close, we are seeing strong winds and heavy rain. the worst of the storm is around the eye. that's where we see the worst of the weather. here the state winds are 215 k/hr. that is in the storm. if it was around the waters of the americas, we would call it a category 4 hurricane. here it's called a tropical cyclone. it's the same. it's just as powerful. if this hit land it would cause a lot of damage. fortunately the track is not going to take it over the tiny islands in. it will take it down to the south-west, and eventually southwards, and it looks like it should avoid the new zealand north island. the winds high up in the atmosphere, that should topple over and start to kill it. that's what we hope. >> thanks. approaching the newshour.

5:32 am
grown in france as a result of the attacks a year ago against the "charlie hebdo" news paper, and the jewish supermarket. and the recent attacks in november in which 130 people were killed. so the idea is that ordinary people can come into the mosque, those that are taking part, have a cup of a tea and a chat with ordinary mosque goers. we have seen a couple of women here at the grand mosque that have gone in, and said they lived in the neighbourhood and were curious to see what was inside. and will there was a man in another mosque that says when someone offered a hand, you accept it. i spoke to one man on sunday, who is himself of north african, of muslim origin, he said he used to go to the mosques, but doesn't any more, and said that the atmosphere in the mosque has changed. there was a lot of intolerance and there was a lot of extreme views expressed. it was this kind of perception
