4:03 pm
iraq. my team and i, he were in erbil just a couple of weeks ago. we saw many from the yazidi community who left sinjar when isil took over last year. they're in camps internally displaced. they cannot return to sinjar. they cannot return there because of the devastated infrastructure, and because in mosul, adjacent to sinjar, isil still has a stronghold. then you look at other parts of the country. you look at the diyala province where there was riding sectarian tensions this past week. sunni families began to flee, many saying that they are afraid to go back. because they'll be targeted by shia militias. >> libya's rival faction create a new unity government. a presidential council was formed. it's basically based in tunis.

4:07 pm
manufacturing costs to make goods worldwide. more than 20 years of record-breaking growth has propelled china from communism to consumerism. now the chinese economy is stalling, and the slowdown is hurting many other economies worldwide. commodities exported rely on china are now also struggling analysts say a slowdown is inevitable given how much the chinese economy has grown in recent years. they say high speed growth is unsustainable and a reset is needed. >> china is, indeed, in a moment of momentum transferring from old to new. traditional agencies are big in size. even though they're growing fast, emerging industries can't make up for the traditional industries slowdown. over all they're fighting within from pressure. >> slower growth is expected to be the new form nor china.

4:10 pm
and 2017 growth assessments for china in light of the robust developments of its service and new economy sectors as well as fiscal policy actions and support of demand. the picture could change farther down the road. continued strong growth in china is dependenten on its authorities, prompt decisive action addressing remaining balances in the economy and the legacy of past imbalances. >> still to come, water crisis health appeal. the mayor of flint asks washington to step in regarding contaminated water. four days after the attack in burkina faso's capital, france asking for the gunmen. and we have more on fifa's president. details with rahul.

4:13 pm
assistance. >> invarybly they say they want to go to germany, and they're in hurry because they fear more borders will be closed to them. europe's leaders must know if people are still coming under these desperate conditions its likely that this year will be every bit momentous as the one that has just past. barnaby phillips, al jazeera. >> police in germany are investigating the three former members of the disbanded group red army faction are behind the attempted robbery of an armor car. the dna matching the suspects was found in a get away vehicle after failed attempt to get inside the armored car last june. the trio carried out a bomb attack on the prison in 1993. the red army faction was known to carry out dozens of assassinations, bombings and ribs between 1970 and 1999. the colombian government and farc rebels will ask the
4:14 pm
university council to monitor a cease-fire and disarmament program if they agree to a peace deal. the leader of the rebel group has hailed it as a significant step to end the conflict that has lasted more than 50 years. >> we entered a final phase where 60 years of confrontation can end to everyone's happiness in 2016. in the middle of the world that is agitated by conflict and war this is the only peace process that is showing encouraging results. >> let's get more from alessandro. how big of a deal is this? >> well, this is really a crucial announcement. it shows how close they are to a final agreement to end this very long conflict. that's something that both sides insisted on doing the announcement. and it also--it shows that they're ready to call international observers into the
4:15 pm
country that will be able to verify the compliance of the agreement. now we don't have all the details of the mission yet, but we know there will be u.n. observers and observers coming from this regional bloc organization, which is seen as an alternative to the organization of the american state. this is something that the farc insisted on because they feel the american state is too closely influenced by the u.s. these observers will put in place a mechanism to verify the compliance of the agreement, and they will be able to settle controversy. they'll put forward recommendations, and they will also present reports for example on the disarmament of the farc. this is a major step forward, and it looks that in the coming months they most likely will be able to finally sign a final deal. >> how quickly might they get those u.n. observers into
4:16 pm
position? >> well, they might arrive even before the final deal is in place. once they reach a deal on a bilateral cease-fire and on the mechanism for the disarmament of the farc. president of colombia is insisting on the final date at the end of march, but the sources that we have that are close to the farc say that that might be a little bit too close. they're looking at may or june for the final agreement. but the al jazeera diplomatic editor james bays reported on sunday that the u.n. is already working on this mission, and planning is underway. colombia will probably make a formal request to the u.n. security council for a vote in coming days, and they could be ready by the end of the march for their mission.
4:17 pm
>> you've reported from that area for a long time. what do ordinary people say about this type of progress? >> well, there is this sense that if the international mission of the u.n. arrives here, this will bring more confidence in the process. a lot of colombians are wary of what this piece will bring, especially because ther there will be complicated reforms, agricultural reforms. they'll deal with drug trafficking in the country, and really transforming the regions that have been restricted by the conflict. the the presence of the review will give the major more confidence to the colombian people that something that is something that the government believes. remember, whatever deal some comes to havana. and the people who have the final say, will give the
4:18 pm
referendum 60 days after that deal is signed. >> thank you very much, indeed, from bogota. >> the suicide of a young man find out that his name was removed as potential for employees. unemployment is almost double the national average. 15%. children as young as seven work in mines in congo. they trace cobalt used in batteries and can be traced back to to congo. >> threthree assailants were

4:20 pm
>> this is the shop. medical workers also say that dozens much people suffer talks in this country. at the ministry of foreign affairs, they hold talks, and this man was injured in the attack that claimed the lives of some of his colleagues. >> it was finally greed that discussions for now should be confined to when and how to bury the dead. >> a french-moroccan photograph died after being seriously injured in the attack.
4:21 pm
people here fear there might be change. >> the christian and muslim population are integrated. we live as brothers and sisters. those attackers do not represent us or our faith. >> that's the message that many muslims have been conveying to their christian neighbors. al jazeera. burkina faso. >> list return to our story about the effects of china's slowing growth on the global economy. robert scott is an economy with the economic institute. thank you very much for being with us. how reliable for a start on the figures coming out of china? do you think it could be worse there than we think? >> well, actually, i think its pretty much a coin flip. there are factors that could push the numbers in either
4:22 pm
direction. certainly it's well-known that china would like to have strong growth numbers and then for political reasons that may be encouraging them to distort the numbers to push them up, and to buy some upwards--put your thumb on the scale, if you will. on the other hand. nobody has really looked rainfallly enough at what is going on at the trade side of the ledger, and it's really been remarkable the changes that have happened there in the past year. i've looked at china's merchandise trade, and for the first 11 months of the year it's trade surplus with the rest of the world has increased by 59 percent. over $200 billion in the positive direction. much of this has to do with the fall in the price of oil. so much of what china imports is oil or oil-based such as chemicals. how this is effected the real value of china's manufacturing
4:23 pm
trade i think has yet to be determined. >> do you think there might be an element of fear because it's the fear that has been building up as the markets have been down a lot over the year and the imf has warned this could be a self-fulfilling prophecy as things get worse. do you think actually there isn't as much reason for concern as the markets have been suggesting? >> well, i think that markets are naturally hate uncertainty. they really don't know what's going on in china. and factors in the oil prices, the sharp movements in the trade balance make it hard to know what to make from these figures. as you step back as an economist in the long run, prospects for china still look relatively good. they have a sharp improvement in the trade balance. the government has the willingness and ability to increase spending on
4:24 pm
infrastructure, to increase loans in the private sector if necessary to cover some of this massive overhang of private debt. so those factors can come into play. lastly, china can slowlydown the outflow of capital, which is one of the biggest risk factors out there. it's one of the things that is more stabilizing to the financial markets. china has the ability and willingness to learn on the fly, and so for these reasons i think change in the long run is going to be less of a destabilizing influence that markets fear. >> thank you very much, indeed, for your expertise. thank you for joining us. >> my pleasure, thank you. >> well, the u.s. has greed to hear president obama's bid to arrive his plan to protect more than 4 million illegal immigrants from deportation. ruling in obama's favor would allow them to work legally in the u.s. the rule something due by the

end of june. bomb's legislative action was stopped by the lower courts after texas and other u.s. states sued to stop it. a mayor from flint, michigan, has flown to washington to ask for help. the government tried to save money by taking water from a contaminated river. we have the latest from flint. >> well, every single days thousands of bottl cages of bottled water is going out to people of flint. thousands of packages of bottled water has gone out thank thanks
4:26 pm
to the national guard. they're trying to get one clean water filter for each household. but no one knows when the pipes will be clean enough to allow the water to start operating normally. a lot of people blame michigan's governor rick snyder. he's delivering his state of the state address, where he will certainly--we expect him to apologize again for this water mess. he has apologized several times already. but that is not satisfying the critics for demanding that he resign. there is even a petition drive asking that he be criminally charged with all this. we'll find out more later on tonight. >> filmmakers spike lee and actress jada pinkett-smith are boy caughting the awards ceremony. >> it's the annual award season when stars of the silver screen
4:27 pm
walk the red carpets in hopes of going home with a trophy. but this year's build up to the academy awards is tinged with controversy. noted director spike lee is boycotting the ceremonies. in black actsers have received a nomination. jada pinkett-smith spoke out. >> asking for acknowledging diminished dignity and diminis diminishes power. and we're a digfied people. >> that is gaining traction on social media. here is every nomination this year in four major film awards. the oscars, golden globes,
4:28 pm
critics choice and screen actors gild. take a closer look. only two are black. will smith and idris and alba. both these faces disappear along with several others when it comes to the oscars. the academy awards traditionally regarded as the most prestigious have an all-white roster of acting nominees for the second year in a row. while some argue that black actors did not play prominent roles this year, others say the problem goes deeper. >> the filming industry along with other institutions, is slow to change. not a very diverse institution. you have a situation where essentially white males are dominating the industry. >> oscar nominees and winners determined by roughly, they're
4:29 pm
saying its time for big changes. we'll conduct and review a member of our membership recruitment in order to bring about much-needed diversity. that diversity is long-time coming. some in the industry comment that it's easier for a black person to become president of the united states than head of hollywood movie studio. gerald tan, al jazeera. >> still to come on the al jazeera news hour. hooked on heroin, helping the addicts help the biggest global supplier of the drug. >> scientists say human could become extinct just like the dinosaurs if an astroid were to hit earth. they're planning a major operation that could save us all. >> in sports sri lanka's cricket captain reveals what he knows about two players who were approached to match fix.

4:33 pm
>> a reminder of the top stories here on al jazeera. isil is likely responsible for the deaths of 18,000 civilians in iraq between the start o of 2014 and october of 2015. the estimates holthe estimates of isil is holding as slaves. >> well, the chinese economy is causing destability around the world. the price of oil is also causing big problems. >> flames like these providing jobs and revenue. the regional government exports
4:34 pm
over 500,000 barrels of oil a day. the government has not paid salaries for over four months. it owes millions of dollars and stop the 600 public projects including schools, hospitals and roads. in addition to helping the displaced people in the area it needs to find money for its fight against isil. >> the biggest problem that both th are facing are the low oil prices. that's wreaking havoc on budgets. even if the dale was in place last year, both sides of it would be having trouble paying the bills. >> the kurdish region economy is almost exclusively dependent on the energy sector. besides oil there is gas. the estimates that there are nearly 3% of the world gas preserves. given the nature of the conflict around it's borders many see if more of a challenge than opportunity.
4:35 pm
infrastructure to export gas is still being built. the kurdish regions gas exporting pipeline is scheduled to come into operation in 2017. it's planned to transfort natural gas from kurdistan region to turkey, and then to the international market. and on top of the financial and regional issues there is corruption. >> yes, it's true we have a problem of corruption. we don't have national institutions. many of the politicians are oil dealers and they own companies that transport, import, and export oil. >> much like the plans for gas, the kurdish regional government transports its oil to turkey where it sells to other countries. with the low price of oil and conflict nearby, iraq's region continues to struggle to pride for its people. >> al jazeera's john hedron joins us fromchy. how worried are they about the low price of oil there?
4:36 pm
>> well, another day, another dollar. it is now down below $29 a barrel. and that is a 12-year low. people in the industry are very concerned that effects the shale industry here in the u.s. and of course it effects the oil industry all around the globe. and there is not a lot of hope in that rising any time soon. at least according to the international energy agency who said that the world could drown in supply if things don't change in the short term. iran's sanctions have now ended and they're going to increase productions 500,000 barrels a day that county says. to put this in perspective, i in 2012 when the last sanctions were increased on iran, oil was going for that at $109 a barrel.
4:37 pm
now it's below $29, and not showing signs of turning around any day soon. >> some of the big oil companies that have to close town some of the projects that they had in the pipeline presumably that has an effect on some jobs. tell us about the upside of the low oil prices for the american company. >> you're right about that. the down side is definitely there. oil has been a big job producer for the u.s. as the facing industry has grown. there are pluses. if you are a consumer that doesn't have a lot of investments and who is spending the number that you earn, petrol prices are very good right now, below $2 an gallon. home heating prices you can save hundreds of dollars if oil remains at this level. those are good bits of news. if what we're seeing here in the global oil market begins to effect the economy, well, that's a whole different story. if you lose your job, no petrol
4:38 pm
prices are good. >> has this become part of the campaign in the presidency, or has it been largely ignored so far? >> so far we're not hearing a lot about it, but i suspect we may here more. the republican party has been strong increasing u.s. oil production getting a larger share of the world market, and of course the competition from various countries to try to increase markets is part of the problem with oil prices. many countries don't want to reduce production because they want to maintain that market share. so here in the u.s. that is likely to be part of the presidential debate as it moves forward to this summer. >> john hedron, thank you very much, indeed. >> afghanistan is the biggest supplier of heroin to users around the world. heroin and opium so widely available and cheap to buy for afghans. large numbers of them need help to try to kick their habit as we have reports now from kabul. >> it was the biggest military
4:39 pm
camp in kabul. now it is the largest treatment center for drug addicts in afghanistan. many of these women are homeless. they receive three meals a day, new training suits and a haircut. around 600 men are living here. each has a story of misery and hope. >> i've been using drugs for 22 years. i'm tired of this dark life. i want to start a new one. >> when i compared my previous life with the current one, i feel i'm human. >> many here praise the treatment center, but some complain about the quality of food and lack of proper medical services. outside the addicts get fresh air every day and a chance to exercise, keeping fit and busy is important for their recovery. they are not allowed to leave. visitors come twice a week. the government plans to host more than 10,000 patients every year. government leaders have yet to
4:40 pm
approve a budget of apromisely $4 million a year. this is one step on a long road. doctors hearsay that the program starts with 45 days detoxification, and rehabilitation process. >> for example, they will learn carpentry, they'll learn painting. now it's six months is a long period of time. after that we teach them, their career. of course the government have decided to just send them to other ministries for their jobs. >> afghanistan is the world's biggest producer of opium. last year it produced 3,300 to 3,300 tons. opium poppies are turned into heroin, which is sold worldwide. illegal drugs in afghanistan are cheap and available. back in kabul these men were vulnerable. unemployment is high, and
4:41 pm
addicts can easily return to their old habits. the number of drug addicts in afghanistan is quite alarming. they say that there are 2.4 million adult drug users, and the problem is that there are only 123 treatment centers across the country. and this center a moment of joy for the addicts temporarily forgetting their battle they could win or lose. >> scientists say the u.s. and europe are working on the plan to save planet earth from asteroid collisions. the redirect program will attempt to push the extr extraterrestrial objects off point. >> february 2013, an astroid cuts the sky-- [ explosion ] terrifies the residents, and reminds the rest of us that one with our name on it could be
4:42 pm
coming our way. with that in mind these two scientists from nasa and the european space agency are putting their considerable brains together. their humble mission to save the planet from a potentially catastrophic direct hit that could wipe us out. scientists call it the as detroit impact and deflect assessment ands it has its sights on not one but two astroid. neither is expected to hit earth but they'll be used as target practice nonetheless. they'll hit it and like a cosmic game of snooker, they'll push it to the offense direction. >> you hit the space craft and you can change its velocity. many times that's the difference between hitting the earth and
4:43 pm
not hitting the earth. >> they'll build the know how of replicating the mission when needed for real. a meter of this size striking the earth would cause the same amount of energy and damage as dozens of atomic bombs. but currently scientists don't see another astroid heading our way for the next couple of centuries. so what is the rush? >> we want the capability to do this as soon as possible because we know these things that are out there. but to find the potential threats is a very big goal. now this particular mission is to go the next step, which is what are you going to do about it if something has actually got your name on it? >> for now the project is still in the theoretical phases with the approval for the launch still waiting for the green light to prevent us from going the route of the dinosaurs. gabriel elizondo, al jazeera,

coming up for day three that gets under way in a few hours time. serena williams playing followed by roger federer, and djokovic also in action. and now officials hope that tennis would move beyond the allegations of match fixing from a now days ago. and andy murray criticized the organizers making this the first slam to have a betting agency as a sponsor. >> not really proud of that, i don't think. i think it's a little bit hypocritical, really. i don't believe the players are allowed to be sponsored by the
4:49 pm
betting companies, but the tournaments are. >> now we have reports on the practice known as court siding. >> big names have made tennis big business. that goes for betting on the game, too. with hundreds of tournaments and thousands of matches there is almost always a game that is set on match point on which the game stakes. placing the tennis betting market at $5 billion, and it's led to shadowy practice known as court siding. information is sent from the court side to someone who can
4:50 pm
place a bet. >> millions of dollars have been traded online. it's happening in tournaments all around the world. and at each tournament the reports this year 40 to 60 people court siding throughout the tournament. >> court siding came out of the shadows in 2014 when a british man employed by a syndicate was arrested for using a device inside his shorts to transmit scores. he was later released because the practice isn't illegal. >> court siding isn't cheating, i don't think care what you say. gambling taking advantage of the technical differences. but it's cheating, it's the same as doping. >> tournament organizers are cracking down with warnings on
4:51 pm
tickets and spotters looking for court siders in the stands. one of the reasons for a tougher approach is that tennis bodies are already selling their scoring data for millions of dollars, which is then being passed to big betting companies. >> they would become so integrated. it's almost in a relationship. so you're seeing support protecting support, bookmakers if you like. that's what it really is about. >> tennis' integrity unit is behind the crackdown. they declined to comment on court siding. he told al jazeera that it's worked out confidentially. while the majority of tennis fans are at tournaments to see their idles in action, some may be interested in a different high-stakes game. al jazeera. >> tennis to football. and the sports governing body fifa has admitted that sepp blatter is still being paid his
