mali, with the people trying to keep the peace. and i have all the sport. the denver broncos are crowned super bowl champions, beat egg the carolina panthers for the first time in years. hello everyone, german and turkish leaders are holding talks in ankara on the growing refugee crisis. turkey with a large number of syrian refugees, and the latest balance around aleppo. more are trying to enter. and turkey, taking in the biggest number of asylum seekers in europe. the majority are syrians. >> the united nations says there are more than 4.5 million registered refugees. the actual number is higher. break it down. 2.1 million in lebanon, jordan, iraq. it's a big number, almost the
same, 1.1 million are in turkey alone. let's go to the syrian border. travelling through behind you there is movement. what have you been doing this morning? >> that's right. it's open for trucks, not people. so trucks have been going in yesterday as well, with supplies. through that border area, that no man's land where refugees find themselves. more are coming to the border. the exact number is difficult to verify. we were told from the official yesterday that they were around 10,000. that number is growing, that offensive is violent, it's continuing, and people are scared. it's difficult for them to get here. the border remains closed. officials say that they are handling the situation, and they can provide for them inside
there, just as well as they provide here for turkey. over 2.5 million refugees hosted here. they are well equipped, they have the experience to deal with it. they are settling up food, water. it's not an ideal situation. it's cold at night. there's no heating, a dire situation that, as you go through the videos, was into the sixth year, and we are seeing the people trying to move further away. it's a desperate situation. >> what is going to go down, do you think between the angela merkel and the prime minister of turkey, turkey has a huge number of rev goals, and a large front line burden there, and you have jeremy taking in so -- germany taking in so many. how do the two cooperate. >> they are from different
>> who is doing more, and who should hep. >> can they coordinate. i'm not sure about that. >> it's probably the two countries. turkey is in a real state. >> it's clear on the border and so on and so forth. germany, and the asylum seekers, it's not a simple thing, for you to help with 3.3 billion, to
turkey in order to start dealing with the connection. what is happening is an approach, one that includes what middle easterners and westerners, we are looking with the flames. the problem is it is setting syria on fire. there is no refugee problem. there's a russia, bashar al-assad problem. as we see today, more bombing syria, the less ceasefire in syria, the more people leaving syria. the likes, they have their own skirmishes, and merkel has some leeway with vladimir putin, needs to put pressure to put an end to the ridiculous war in syria, that pushes people out. >> what sort of internal pressure are the two countries on, from the people.
you bring this many people in, it can create problems. >> usually in cases like that, jordan and lebanon has taken a bit of the brunt there. at least syria, lebanese and jordanians speak the same language, they have historical relations. the countries are phenom nas, part of open borders at once upon a time. they have similar cultures. i will say the same thing to syrians in turkey. they speak the same language, and will not say it to syrians in germany. i think germany did a great deal. those that criticize germany today, whatever people are inside germany, who are unjust to merkel, the german people and germany has done their bit. they should be thanked for it. there are new measures that are debatable. let's not really, you know, dwell away from the main issue, which is turkey and germany has
and have been doing a lot for the syrians. the question is what is a country like the u.k. doing, i don't know, saudi arabia, qatar, emirates doing for the refugees, what is a country like the united states who until this point took a fraction of a fraction of 1% of syrian refugees that ask for asylum in the united states. turkey and germany - it's good that they are meeting. really, we say that we have a refugee problem, but the real problem lies with the russians, they are the ones setting the country on fire. it's not a question of flames, it's a question of setting syria on fire. >> and to other new, air strikes in eastern libya killed a woman, her child and two fighters, a member of the recognised parliament in tobruk says a residential area was hit. the raids were believed to be

rebels in that area of the country, we have to wait and see what is involved against the syrian public, one of the first areas to push them completely out of it, and back as early as 2012. so i think we have to wait and see if the rebels are able to come up with a plan to stop the advancing army. there are reports between i.s.i.l. and the nusra front. aleppo countryside is controlled by i.s.i.l., and in the other parts by others. >> interesting talking to you. joining us from damascus. thank you south africa's government says this year will be a tough one for the mining industry. job losses continue into the thousands with plummeting prices

in both parties. that's why more people call themselves independent. one analyst believes they would like an idea of culling themselves independent. a lot of people found that most that are independent are voters for one party or the other. for wherever reason, they like to think of themselves as an independent. but it still matters. i think the independent mindedness behind the impulse matters to a lot of voters. >> independence is a crucial test for anyone that wants to be president. candidacy voting voters don't always win the party's nomination. it's an important stop on the road to the white house much monday marks the international day of zero
