and we take a look at the movie which is the first from columbia to be nominated for an oscar for the first time. we begin in syria, where the first major ceasefire in five years of conflict appears to be holding. although the violence subsided, it has not completely stopped. syria's opposition is accusing government forces of attacking at least 15 rebel held areas. activists say the russian ministry carried out air strikes. let's go to our correspondent joining us live. omar, we had two days of ceasefire. we had seen some violations, what are you hearing about what is happening on the ground. >> the violations in comparison
to day one are getting bigger. we started the day with talks of a russian air strike on three areas in aleppo countryside, western aleppo countryside killing at least one people. russians say that it targeted al nusra front. and the rebel group is linked to al-qaeda. the residence in the area, it is denying the front in that area. also, you have clashes in latakia, where the syrian regime is attacking a number of rebels forces, saying that is a clear violation. it happened in an area, and from the other side there's a center monitoring the ceasefire.
the overall situation is calmer than before. registering nine violations. it's a mix up, really. the comparison to the level of violence prior to the truth. i think the level of violence has increased. >> thank you for that the united nations helps the truce will allow aid to be delivered to civilians in besieged parts of the country. it's estimated that around 480,000 people are currently trapped. the opposition says some of the aid ear-marked for besieged areas is inefficient. and the syrian government is accused of seizing some food aid and delivering it to villages under government control.
let's talk to the spokesman of the international community from the red cross. >> thank you for being with us. what do you say to opposition accusations that the aid is being seized by government forces, that those trying to collect the aid are being targeted? >> well, fix, it's difficult for me to take a position about that. we cannot really verify. in the case of the international red cross, the operation with syria, we try and attempt to deliver aid directly to the people. the proximity always has been at the core of our operations there. >> that being the case, let's talk about the aid that is being
promised to the besieged areas. we have seen two days of ceasefire. has the aid gone in as yet. if it hasn't, when. >> look, whether there is a ceasefire or not, and whether it is or not. the icrs with the help, doing it before, we cannot - of course we have to be prepared for both situations of the ceasefire taking place, but the situation where the fighting is continuing. we welcome a solution that brings more aid to the people in need. we are preparing for other humanitarian factors to bring aid to the besieged places. but we should stress that there are more places that might be
included in the ceasefire and that also are in dire need of humanitarian aid and the i.c.r.c. is ready and will provide aid to this place. the opposition says that the aid that has been ear-marked for the besieged area is not enough. what do you say to that in. >> well you ne are know, i've been working here for a couple of months in this conflict. every month they are doing nor terms of humanitarian aid. i totally agree whatever is there, it will not be enough, and that's why we have to continue to push and to step up the humanitarian operation in syria, i agree that the needs in too many places in syria is just
as honest. >> thank you for joining us. speaking to us from damascus. let's get a broader view on how the ceasefire is getting on. we are joined by the diplomatic editor. thank you for being with us marwan. what do you make of the ceasefires. we are seeing some violations. this is a report on the ground, is it about to blow up soon. >> i'm not going to change my analysis from a week or two ago when it was first announced. i am convinced. i was and am convinced that there are three important reasons why a ceasefire is more important. one, the russian bombardment started five months ago, has basically run out of positions to hit. it can no longer advance the
russian interest. two, the americans are fed up with what is going on in syria, and they have plan b. which is they will go back and re-support the opposition. three, everyone understands that even the military activities in syria or intervention in syria was meant to lead to a diplomatic solution, there's no military solution, no one party will win. there's a maturity towards this conclusion. it's fragile, but i think there are more exceptions to the rule than there are the rules if you remember the last talks arranged in geneva, the opposition was not happy with the fact that their demands of a ceasefire was not implemented. we are seeing a ceasefire that is being implemented. are you hopeful that the talks
will go ahead. the syrian opposition is in a weaker position. everyone around the world understands that when moscow and washington got involved, this is not a game played locally. it's a game of great powers. the russians and the americans are dictating the pace. no longer bashar al-assad or the opposition. clearly because of that russian intervention, the opposition has lost some of its cards. it's going to the next round of negotiations knowing too well that any students of international relations understands, diplomacy is a reflection of the balance of power, and it is not in favour of the opposition, and yet everyone understands. there's no solution hence it has
to go to the diplomatic process. the position is not strong. >> that being the case you say the opposition may go grudgingly. let's talk about president bashar al-assad, his balance of power or position. what does his ceasefire do to his position? >> over the last few days, italian, spanish and other publications, with bravado saying he can take over the country and people need to thank him. maybe he should get the nobel peace prize. it sounds bizarre if not realistic. but the russians told him to shut up about this bravado. he needs to get with the programme. russia invested in syria. whatever it counts. he owns it. he'll have to get with the programme. he'll try to manoeuvre.
and the russians will dictate what bashar al-assad can or cannot do. >> it will be intriguing to see what happens next. >> moving on. iraq's military came under attack by isil fighters across the country west of baghdad. a number of policemen were kidnapped after an attack. a nearby police station was attacked and an assault on a barracks near fallujah 30 have been killed in air strikes on a market outside sanaa, the capital. no one claimed responsibility, yemeni security officials blamed the saudi-led coalition. many of the dead are civilians, forces loyal to the internationally recognised government. backed by the coalition troops, trying to retake sanaa, falling to houthi rebels.
the spokesperson for the saudi-led coalition says he doubts civilians were killed in the provision. >> we've had this since day one of the provision in yemen, and we know the tactics of the militias, when they have the pressure on them. they try to revive the targetting. and do you know, we regret casualty among them. we know that what we did yesterday, we target the brigade, which is around. we know there is no civilian in this area. most of this is tighter. today we know that most of the identities don't have it, and they said they get the
information from local security agent. and we know that there is no official security. all of these belong to the militias out of law. the government - there is no official people would can report. >> the u.n. is warning of a growing humanitarian challenge along the boarder with greece. 7,000 refugees are stuck there and are demanding that they cross. there's a cap on how many people pass through. people are trying to make their way to western and northern europe. boarder control is forcing many into overcrowded camps. >> now to a camp on the greek side of the boarder. no doubt a lot of frustration and it's a tense situation
there. what have the refugees been saying to you? >> certainly they are anxious to consider the journey. the question is why is macedonia closing the boarder. when you explain it's not just macedonia, they are reacting to what serbia is doing, all the way to austria. they wonder what will happen next, and how long they'll be here. there's a lot of families with small children. we have to tell you that the transit is at full capacity. they have set up shop in the field and they have put up tents. >> in the background, they've been blocking the cargo railway tracks for a while since this morning. demanding for the borders to be
open, calling on angela merkel to do so, and on this side - you can't see it - but on the left is a long queue, people waiting to get food, clothes. it's been raining, it was a difficult situation. you were talking about 7,000, but the number around greek is more than that. 20-25,000 people making their way here. >> speaking to us from the greek side of the boarder, hoda abdel-hamid plenty more ahead. including ireland's parliamentary election set to deliver a hung parliament. children in the democratic republic of congo vulnerable to people trafficking. >> gi around ain -- gianni
infantino talks about his first job as f.i.f.a. president early indication assist that moderates and reformists have done well in the capital, a change from previous elections dominated by conservatives. the poll is seen as a test for president hassan rouhani, after securing a nuclear deal with world world. let's go live to tehran, where jonah hull joins us. looks like the conservatives have 30 seats in parliament, but too early to call a victory. >> we are in the latter stages, i think, of the counting process. we believe a final result will come in the next few hours. looking at the results as they
have emerged, a clear picture is coming out. that the reformists, moderates aligned to hassan rouhani have made astonishing progress in the parliamentary election and the other election for the assembly of experts. the advisory body for the supreme leader. >> we don't have a full picture. look to tehran. the biggest voting district. the influential district of power. of 30 seats available in parliament, all 30 have been won by reformists and moderates candidates, an enormous victory for them and defeat or conservatives, big names top ed. falling by the wayside politically. in other big cities, conservatives did better than the reformists. it is not to say that they'll end up with a magic wand
allowing them to make the changes that the president wants to enact here. there'll be significant opposition. but it seems no side will have a majority. that is significant. overall, it's a huge expression of support for mr hassan rouhani, the nuclear deal and the lifting of sanctions and opening up the economy and engage with the rest of the world. it's an expression by many of a desire for change. >> you mentioned the reformists were making gains. remind us the influence that the assembly has in the country. >> you are breaking up, but i can tell you were asking me about the assembly of experts.
the former president running for the body, he and his son topped the list. they'll reclaim their seats on the influential advisory body. it has the job, the assembly of experts of appointing the next supreme leader, the current supreme leader, ayatollah khamenei, is said to be in ill health. there is a possibility that the counter, the new assembly of experts which has a greater amount of moderate influence on it may be involved in appointing the next supreme leader. possibly from one of its own members. possibly president hassan rouhani himself. >> it will be interesting to see what's. >> jonah hull speaking from the capital. >> ireland's prime minister conceded his governing coalition will not return to power because of heavy losses in the
parliamentary elections. results suggest that they may have to try to form a new coalition. neave barker files this update from dublin. >> it's been a bruising election for the outgoing coalition. now some difficult conditions await the outgoing government if they hope to hold on to power. do they stick together and team up with independence and other parties or does something take place and the other parties team up with arch rivals. politically, there's not much separating the two parties. they share the same vision for the future of ireland and the economy. one is center left, one is center right. go back to the irish civil war. many believe that now is the time to put aside the differences in the interests of
economic and political stability. it's an important year for the country. 100 years since the 1916 uprising against british colonial rule. never before do they show it's in control of its landscape and economy. when the irish parliament convenience people in the country hope to know what the make up of the government will be, until then, the future of ireland hangs in the balance. >> 26 coalminers have been pronounced dead following an explosion in russia. they were searching for the missing minors following the first explosion on thursday, killing four minors at the comb mine. the search operation has been stopped due to safety concerns. >> nigeria's president is in qatar to discuss falling oil
prices. the nigerian economy grew at a slow rate. a forecast for nigeria does not look good even though oil prices continue. >> i think the majority of oil producers and commodity producers in desperate trouble, riding high with an oil price, it's been an exponential decrease if the price. they are in trouble. different policy responses. i think the president is doing the right thing with an anticorruption drive. but he has a fixation and not devaluing the currency. the president is running out of money, foreign exchange reserves, it couldn't go on, the disruptive moment. i don't see nigeria growing at
all in the next 24 months. he's taking a bet, the equivalent of taking up a number on the roulette wheel. he's not moving from it. >> the democratic republic of congo is allowing more than 200 children adopted by foreign parents to join new families after two years of waiting. 900 other cases are in limbo, but they are reviewed. adoptions were suspended in 2013 over child abuse and traffic returns. this report from the capital. >> reporter: these are some of ken charta's destitute children, they have been orphaned or abandoned and are taken care at this home. this girl was found alone on the streets in a township. the 92 children are here waiting to be adopted. the government suspended adoptions for years ago. it's been tough for the home.
>> translation: we have to keep children that are adopted. we are still receiving new arrivals. it's hard to take ware of all of them and provide their basic needs. >> reporter: things may get better. many children have been adopted, and will get exit visas allowing them to travel. after years of waiting. they can join adoptive families in france. in kamchatka you find abandoned children. the ban on international adoptions was meant to protect vulnerable children. some of whom the government says end up being abused in foreign countries. since the ban, there has been cases of child smuggling. the this woman says her 4-year-old twins were taken.
she said she followed reports they were taken to an orphanage in the capital. they arrived too late. all she had to go on is a picture of an american film who has her children in the u.s. >> i want to tell whoever has my children to return them. i'm not asking for anything else. i have nowhere to live in the city. i've been sleeping on the floor. i have been robbed. but i will not go home without my children. >> reporter: this person returns an international adoption agencies. they have a bill before parliament, saying it could see the lifting of the moratorium and regulations. >> if passed the law will have a provision for a committee to monitor children. if properly implemented child trafficking will be a thing.
of the past. >> back at the home they may be too young to understand how a new improved law may help them. those that take care of the children want to see them placed in stable loving families here or abroad. >> still to come - nigeria tries now a look at the weather. there's a heatwave heading to south dakota. >> it's not a place you think of as having a heatwave, not in the middle of winter. minus 10 is the temperatures in sioux falls. february 14th - that's cold, even for winter months. it should be typically on average. around about zero. minus one. >> it had a bit of a flow from the south. warm in texas and i can, and never gets it off until yesterday. 17 celsius. i have to say, it's pretty much a record. it may have got higher than that.
we are equalling what the 80s gave south dakota. it's the middle of winter, if you watch how the satellite brings things in, it looks like a cold front, is a cold front. >> there's a difference between the arctic air here and the warmer air in the south. that causes severe weather. but the real cold is held a long way north. temperatures will drop in south dakota. the real weather is on the canadian side of the boarder. i suspect there'll be 20-30 centimetres of snow. thank you vex. there's more to come here on al jazeera, including despite what you hear, we don't need to make america great again, america never stopped being great. >> hillary clinton gains momentum ahead of super-tuesday,
first 24 hours. the syrian coalition says 15 rebel held areas were attacked about guns and barrel bombs. the u.n. is warning of a challenge. refugees making their way to western and northern europe, have been stopped from crossing, forcing many into overcrowded camps. >> results of iran's elections are reported. moderates and reformists have done well, taking all 30 parliamentary seats in tehran, iran's biggest voting district hillary clinton has won the democratic primary in the u.s. state of south carolina. the former secretary of state celebrated a decisive victory over bernie sanders, her win ahead of the super-tuesday
program primary. >> we have much to look forward to. there's no doubt in my mind that america's best years are ahead of us, we have got to believe that, we have to work for that. we have to stand with each other. we have to hold each other up. lift each other up. move together into the future that we will make. thank you, god bless you, and god bless america if clinton glitches the democratic nomination many believe her opponent will be donald trump. patty culhane takes a look at how one man dominates the cam page. >> reporter: in the battle ground state of virginia, it doesn't take long to find someone with strong opinions about the presidential election. >> american voters are angry. >> reporter: this woman is a retired lawyer using a cafe as an offer. at 62 she's voted in a lot of
elections. she doesn't remember anything like this, mostly because donald trump is winning. >> he's a madman. >> reporter: businessman donald trump is leading the primary despite or possibly because of statements likes that. on mexicans... >> they are bringing drugs, crime, they are rapists... >> on john mccain. >> a war hero. he's a war hero because he was captured. i like people not captured. >> reporter: and on his own campaign. >> i could stand in the middle of fifth avenue and shoot someone and not lose voters. >> reporter: not many predicted the rise of donald trump, the capital was not impacted by the great recession. >> if you are from a community of colour, if you have a high school education, if you come
from a wheat belt region, things have been tough and have not gotten better. >> reporter: at this cafe many have started over. this woman understands why people are angry, but doesn't oouned how these are the candidates she has to choose from. >> including the party she belongs to, the democrats. >> i'm frustrated that i've almost stopped speaking about it. i want to cry for the choices americans are facing today. >> she doesn't know who she'll vote for in the end. but she's sure of one thing donald trump will not be the president of the united states. >> americans will come to their senses. >> but they are angry. she is hoping after this campaign washington realises it
let's go to jason johnson, professor of political science. he joins us via skype from atlanta. >> before going into the phenomena that is donald trump, let's talk about hillary clinton's victory in south carolina. does this seal her nomination by the democratic party for the white house? >> it doesn't seal her nomination, but increases the threshold that bernie sanders has to meet. the problem is not so much that hillary clinton beat bernie sanders, it was the range. if she continues to beat him by 20, 30, 50 point margins, it will be difficult for sanders to compete with her for the nomination. >> let's turn our attention to the republican party. we are seeing the rise and rise
of donald trump, as patty culhane was explaining there. the republican party is loathe to back him. will they come to the conclusion that he is their candidate. >> if trump wins enough candidates he'll be the nomination. what that manifests in as far as voters in the party leadership. we do not know. there was tension between the trump campaign and republican world in washington d.c. there's a large number of republicans that do not support donald trump and have issues are policy, position and rhetoric. i don't know how enthusiastic it will be and how it manifests and turns out? >> at this stage we are seeing client, trump, you know, ahead in the polls.
what would a clinton and trump race look like? >> a clinton and trump presidential race would be so much closer than anyone in the world would be comfortable with. this would be a serious election, fought at the margins, and this is the reason, because the only person running for president less popular than hillary clinton is donald trump. if you have two candidates many don't like, trist or believe in, it will take effort to get people to turn out to vote. and we don't quite know who would win that election. >> jason johnson professor of political science speaking to us from atlanta breaking news. it's just come in. reuters reports that several bomb attacks kill 17 in a muslim district of baghdad. this is according to police and
medical sources. if you remember too, we were reporting that iraq's military came under attack across the country earlier in the day. we'll be bringing you more on that story as we get the information. >> meanwhile other news. swiss voters are deciding whether foreign criminals should be reported, for offenses such as speeding or insulting a policeman. many rejected the proposals. the result of the referendum is expected on sunday. >> reporter: experts such as this, who is spanish and lives and works in geneva are worried. the referendum means foreigners who commit two minor crimes could be kicked out. such as assault, trespassing or speeding. >> in addition to major offenses, there are minor offenses. if you forget your papers, you
could get deported. it scares me. >> posters by the right wing party shows white sheep taking black sheep. and it wants to strengthen a law allowing for deportation of foreigners guilty of murder or rape. the anti-immigration party won a big show of votes last october. european countries are considering how to deal with hundreds of thousands of migrants. the assault on hundreds of women angered many. reason. >> back then it was a different climate. i feel that peel want an -- people want an effective mechanism to put away those that come to switzerland and behave badly a quarter of a million
people are foreigners. 10,000 would have been reported if changes to the law were made. >> among them children of immigrants. >> it goes against some international commitment of switzerland. and goes against some aspects of the agreement on free movement of people made with the european union. >> sways nationals can -- swiss nationals can vote. it's putting well integrated and law of abiding supporters on edge. >> argentina is experiencing the worse outbreak. the disease is spread by the same mosquito responsible for zika fire us. -- virus. >> reporter: dengue thrives in places like this - overgrown tropical vegetation. collected with the smallest of

noted is to attack the lava. results are flying. this is the worst. it thrives around humans. >> the mosquito doesn't respect borders and repellant is not effective. >> it's a joint provision. in a campaign of education and to eliminate the breeding ground. the same carrying zika and dengue. a battle they can't afford to lose. operators fumigate one house at a time. collecting waste and imposing fines on those that don't comply. >> when we started the campaign people were suspicious. now they are taking it in. participating, asking questions. >> close to the boarder with brazil. they have been hit by zika.

ear-marked for these initiatives have been cut back. >> the pressure is on the girls, because when we look at teenage pregnancies, it's a girl problem. since we looked at it, it's half the girl problem and half the boy problem. the answer is to have sex education programme for boys and girls in the schools. >> the population of the philippines is over $100 million. the government is trying to find ways to find better access to family planning, and we'll look to donors. vanessa wants to ensure her children get a good education, and when the time comes, the best family planning information too. the question is how will the philippines government deal with an issue that it's getting more problematic each year. while the laws are in place, no one is willing to take steps. the government says it will address the matter after elections in may
