1:04 pm
traveled. he joins us live from gaza inta. there is a lull but before that, there was intense bombardment in the north around alleppo. that sentence thousands fleeing. you have been speaking to some of those people. tell us more about what you witnessed and what you heard. there was visible trauma on the faces of these people. 40,000 people made that journey many by foot in the few days preceding this cessation of hostilities. you are talking about people running away from aerial bombardment but others looking in search of food and shelter. here are some stories from people we managed to speak to. >> at a time camp is home to tens of thousands of syrians who have been recently displaced as a direct result of russian airstrikes. this piece of land not far from
1:05 pm
the border with turkey used to be empty. now, thousands of tents are crammed together separated by winding foot paths and narrow streets lined by boys and girls who have had that i recalleir c robbed from them. they are stuck here traumatized by war and abandoned by the international community. this baby is two weeks old. his father and pregnant mother fled their home in alleppo three weeks ago when russian airstrikes began targeting their town. >> we left our homes because of the russian airstrikes. they were non-stop and relengthless. they didn't spare anybody. >> they left in a car for a week before ali's mother went into labor. it was only after ali was born that they were given a tent. his father says russia's claim that it's air force is defending the assad government is false. >> no. no. no. it's not true. they are not targeting isil. they are targeting civilians an especially sunnis. they are going after sunnis.
1:06 pm
>> although the flow of refugees has been ongoing for several years now, what makes this tamp different is that the internally displaced here say that they have been forcibly and intentionally removed in a bid to ethnically cleanse large parts of northern syria. many told us they are fearful more than sunnis are being expelled to pave the way for communities who are loyal to the assad regime: lost his left leg 18 months ago when the syrian air force bombed his home. he sought refuge in mara but the russians bombed civilians there, too. displacing him and his family for a second time. >> they are bombing our towns. to empty them of the indigenous people. >> rebel groups and the government of turkey have also accused russia of ethnic cleansing and saying that's why it's refusing to let these people in. turkish aid agencies are
1:07 pm
delivering food and blankets. the prime minister said accepting refugees would be contributing to what his government says is the goal of changing the demographics of syria. there isn't a city in syria that hasn't been affected by this civil war and there isn't a child here who doesn't seem haunted by all of the death and destruction. these children are too young to differentiate between sunni and kurd and unfortunately for them, they have been born into a war that appears to be carving up their homeland along those lines. >> 3450e7b while, the truce appears to be survivalingmean ws to be survivaling of ongoing violence arrive alleppo and homms. what have you been hearing about some of the latest violations. >> reporter: as we heard in omar's earlier piece, there have been several violations or at least that's what the opinion zils has been charging or accusing of government and russian forces of within the first 24 hours, there were at least 15 violationsanding in the
1:08 pm
second 24 hours, that is today, sunday, there have been at least eight or 9 in different places. violence has reduced significantly prior to the constant bombardment we saw hour by hour in the days leading up to the cessation of hostilities. it hasn't totally ended. sot question them then becomes, politicians and the world leaders, are they happy with some sort of relative success in this truce, or are they looking for 100%? in terms of the civilians, really, it doesn't make a matter to them. for example, if you have peace in damascus but you don't have it in alleppo those, those starving witness the peace as well. that's where the problem lies. they are being bombarded. there is aid that is unable reach these places, it's difficult to see how this truce can actually lift the two weeks it was fanned for not to mention extending it as some hoped for
1:09 pm
before. >> thank you very much. bringing us all of the latest. >> at least 70 people have died in an attack in the predominantly shia neighborhood just north of the iraqi capitol. 100 others were wounded when a roadside bomb and a suicide attacker targeted a busy market. prime minister abadi is holding a meeting with security officials to discuss the assault. meanwhile, iraqi military forces have also been attacked by isil fighters across country. several policemen were kidnapped by the group in abu ghraib west of baghdad. a nearby village was raided by fighters. according to 34i89 forces. both areas are under isil control and 18 policemen were killed during an isil assault on a military barracks near fallujah. wa w wal /*. >> two explosions happened, in a very busy market.

1:11 pm
killed and injured is very high. all security measures could not be enough to prevent such explosion. more to come for you on the newshour. voting for moderation and reform, live in tehran with the indications so far from the iran elections. we have so much to look forward to. >> optimism and momentum for hillary clinton as she winds the primary in south carolina. and in sport, mab down. find out why manchester united manager is so angry. >> greece is warning the number of refugees and migrants on its soil could more than triple next month because of the cap imposed by balkan countries. greece migration minister says
1:12 pm
as many as 70,000 people could find themselves trapped in grease next month unless other e.u. countries remove the burden of numbers. paul brinan reports. >> reporter: this is the greek macedonian border set up last september as a transit camp intended to home 1,000 people maximum. now, 7,000 desperate refugees are stuck in squalid conditions, many for more than a week now. >> reporter: there are thousands of people here inhuman. >> children jostel for a bottles of walt, an orange or perhaps a sandwich. queuing for everything is a daily grind here tempers flare. >> minimum tin minutes. if i want to go to take food, breakfast, i have to wait two hours. it's a bad life. >> at night, the child is very

1:15 pm
as such, the policies of the hassan rhouhani including the nuclear deal with world powers that led to the lifting of sanctions have passed that test. his moderate and reformist alleys have made their biggest gains in the country's key institutions in over a decade. but analysts are quick to point out that neither immediate nor lasting change is inevitable. >> if it doesn't pick up, perhaps in four years, you will see the losers coming back to power. president rhouhani, you know, since i has been able to achieve an agreement with the p 5 plus 1, he has an advantage. he has two major problems. >> that's the fall of the price of oil as well as the global economy that's not doing well. it remains to be seen how this is going play out in the next year and a half. >> the vibrant bustel skies the damage that years of
1:16 pm
international sanctions along with economic mismanagement have without here 60% of the population is under 30. the economy is where most people want to see change the most. >> that means reforming the laws on trade and foreign investment, the sort of things that along with international reengagement, many ultra conservatives are inherently suspicious of to say nothing of the sort of social changes the young here crave. >> which is why for so many voters, loosening the conservative grip on power really matters. >> our government is going to open the doors to the united states -- to the europe and united states and others asian countries to new relationship with communication with them. we have a need to change. we have to change our governm t government. conservatives will remain
1:17 pm
powerful in both the new parliament and the influential assembly of experts that appoints advisors, the supreme leader 69 islamic republic but significantly less powerful than before. playoff now. as you were saying, a pretty impressive result for the alleys of the rhouhani in the capitol. we don't yet have a final result. do we? >> it must be tantalizingly close. they have been saying it all day, the interior ministry, counting must be close to an ends. we have this composite of the results released so far that parents a pretty comprehensive picture, a mixed picture of big wins and big losses for both sides in cities around the country. certainly the most astonishing advance, though, for the reformists and the moderates was here in tehran, the center of power, the biggest voting
1:18 pm
district of 30 parliamentary seats available in tehran, all 30 went to reformists and moderates, docking some very powerful conservative figures out of politics all together. but northeast in mashad for instance, another big city, a big loss there for the reformists and moderates. no magic wand for president rhouhani to enact the sort of changes that many people want to see immediately even if he wanted to. news neither side will have a majority. they will have to rely on opponents who may -- independent who may shift their aleakan depending on the matter at hand. certainly the best hand bent towards reform in this country in many years. >> so that's what's happening. that's what we know with the parliamentary election. the otherly that was running parallel with this was for the assembly of experts, one we are wrapping more closely now than in years gone by. what are the expectations with
1:19 pm
that? >> more important this time than in years gone by. power appointing the next supreme leader when the incumbent eventually passes away and et cetera said to be in ill-health, 76 years old. they said for eight years. it is at least possible that that task will fall to this assembly of experts within the next eight years and the reformists and moderates have again done very well, particularly here in the center of power of 16 available seats, 15 at the latest count have gone to the reformists and moderates, including, of course, president hassan rhouhani, himself and the ex-president, a key figure in the reformist movement. so, even if the balance of hour doesn't shift, the shape of power within that body is subtly different because of that influence from tehran. perhaps not now but perhaps in the future.
1:20 pm
thanks very much. live from tehran. joining me now in the studio is eli geren mali, a policy fellow at the european counsel on foreign relations. the final results haven't been released as we are hearing, most of the votes have been counted forte ran and it looks like all of those seats have been allocated to moderates or reformists. just how important is that? >> i think it's had a massive boost on changing some of the power block systems in parliament. what we are now seeing is a strong majority for the conservative hard liners now being dispersed and now, we actually have a strong minority which is the reformist camp and we have a large block of independent now running as well as the conservative principlists camps. what we have seen happen is the power base of these hard line camps from the principlists, conservetists is diluted within the independent camp and reformists because of this boost they have had from tehran have
1:21 pm
now been given the upper hand amongst the piminority groups i parliament. >> how did the reformists manage to do this? when we described the landscape of the iranian politics, we have also spoken about conservatives, different fafrningsz within the c conservatives. what we have seen is different is that actually, many of their candidates were disqualified so they managed to peel away many of the entrenched conservatives and bring them over. how is it that they managed to do that? >> well, it's one of the most interesting things that have come about in the last few weeks is actually the power blocks within the iranian political system joining forces. so, the reformists and the moderate central camps in the same way they actually did in 2013, which got president rhouhani elected joined forces after mass disqualifications happened. came up with their so-called list of hope candidates which pushed for the candidates in tehran to be selected and it was the massive turnout actually
1:22 pm
that gave them the front running position in these elections. the president who is the head figure of the reformist catch w last sunday came out in a youtube video calling for supporters to come to the streets in tehran and vote. >> had a massive boost in getting his supporters to come out. >> of course, that's one of the big differences with this election is that the reformists instead of boycotting it, encouraged their supporters to get out and participate and support the sort of least hard line or the more independent of the conservatives. now, what does that mean for president rhouhani in the next few years on a practical level? what does a strong minority of moderates within the parliament allow him to do? >> i think what we have seen is not only the iranian political system but, also, the electorate becoming much more pragmatic about their decisions. as you said, taking the least hard lines from the pool of
1:23 pm
candidates that they have available to them. and what we can see happening that has already started to happen since the nuclear deal with iran and world powers was signed is practicigmatic leader cloos different powers centers within iran coming together to a central position to make practicing mgmatic decisions. radicals from either the reformist side or the hard liner side are no longer running the show as they did during earlier times. actually, it's about bringing consensus to the different powers faxes that we have in iran. >> thank you very much. good to get your analysis. >> now, at least 15 people have died and several others wounded in twin suicide attacks in somalia. the attack happened near the capitol. among the casualties is the deputy minister of disarmament. hillary clinton has won the democratic primary in the u.s. state of south carolina. the former secretary of state
1:24 pm
celebrated a decisive victory over rival bernie sanders. it comes ahead of the super tuesday primaries next week when several states will choose which candidate to support. >> we have so much to look forward to. there is no doubt in my mind that america's best years can be ahead of us. we have got to believe that. we have got 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! theration for the white house is now entering a very significant stage. on tuesday, 13 states in territories hold primaries to decide who they want to be their party's nominee for president. al jazeera patty colhane takes a look at how one man has dominated campaign. >> in the battleground state of virginia t doesn't take you long to find someone with pretty strong opinions about the presidential election.
1:25 pm
>> i think american voters are very angry about a lot of things. >> lena is a retired lawyer now using a cafe as an. at 62 years old, she has voted in a lot of elections but she doesn't remember anything quite like this one, mostly because donald trump is winning. i think he is a madman. >> make america great again. >> businessman donald trump is leading the republican primary so far despite or possibly because of statements like this: on mexicans: >> they are bringing drugs. they are bringing crime. they are rapists. >> on john mccain. >> he is not a war hero. >> he is a war hero? >> he is a war hero because he was captured. i like people who weren't captured. >> on his own campaign? >> i could stand in the middle of 5th avenue and shoot somebody and i wouldn't lose voters. okay. >> very few people in washington predicted the rise of trump. >> could be because the capitol region wasn't as impacted as much by the great recession.
1:26 pm
houses still have vam and wages are still high. >> if you are from a community of color, if you only have a high school education, if you come from a rust belt region, if you used to work in manufacturing, things have been tough and they haven't gotten that much better for you. >> at this cafe, negroni is surrounded by people who have started over after losing jobs and income to the recession. she says she understands why people are angry. >> like to punch them in the face, i tell you. >> she still doesn't understand how these are the candidates she has to choose from. >> hello. >> including the party she belongs to, the democrats. >> i am so frustrated. i am so frustrated that i have almost stopped speaking about it. i want to cry. i want to cry for the choices that americans are facing today. >> she doesn't know who she will vote for in the end. >> but she is sure of one thing. donald trump will not be president of the united states. >> americans will come to their senses. we are not -- we are not as stupid as that.
1:27 pm
>> reporter: but they are angry. and she is hoping after this campaign, washington finally, realizes it. patty colhane, al jazeera, washington. >> for more on this, daniel lac joins us like from wrashtdz. let's talk about the democratsw let's talk about the democrats. how significantly is hillary clinton ahead of super tuesday? >> her first significance victory if you want to see it that way. everyone thought she would have to undergo a coreonation. it has turned into a fit. bernie sanders did well in the first couple of primaries they held but in south carolina, he did not do very well. super tuesday, hillary clinton's people are hoping will be a repeat of that. she is ahead in most of the polls in key southern states with african person in and perhaps latin 0 voters. bernie sanders may have a glimmer of hope in minnesota, his own home state, vermont. it's looking like super tuesday
1:28 pm
could be hillary clinton's day. >> dodged trump, he still appears to be in poll position for the republicans. >> he certainly does. he is leading in 8 of the 11 states that will be choosing republican delegates on tuesday. again, those are southern states where conservative white voters seem to favor him. his opponents, you know, they are still looking to see if any can pull free of the pack and emerge as a strong second. ted cruz's home state of texas is one of those up for grabs. the most number of delegates. cruz has a single digit lead on trump in that state. he has to win it to call himself still alive to contest, and marco rubio is hoping a couple of strong second place finishes might help him. again, trump is looking pretty good to win on super tuesday which will give him a solid lead that will be hard to overcome. >> daniel lak in washington, d.c., thank you. there is more to come for you on the "newshour" we will bring you the latest from peru as two

1:40 pm
industry. >> it will over shadow who has shown up all of this for someone who loves the auscaddressed. at the same time, i don't think it's going to keep people from being in a celebratory mood. i think the academy, itself, is trying to ground that having chris rock. he is he will mercilesmerciless >> creed" ties into that. a film about a black boxer being criticized for giving the nomination to the white man, sill vestor stiallone. until that will red carpet is being cleaned 100 times and it's been worn thin, nobody knows which way it can all go. >> that's part of the excitement. you never know how the story
1:41 pm
will end. >> joining me live from the studio is film critic and a black film historian. how would you describe the atmosphere around this year's ausc-arizona? would you sayoscars? would you say. >> i wouldn't say it's been overshadowed. it added age interesting ingredient to the media mil that kind of grinds around the oscars. it adds a dimension to it that i think perhaps needs some discussion we knowed leading ones. beyond that, i think it does resonate with a number of the leading figures, black figures in hollywood. i don't think it's something at a time public are going to get behind in vast numbers, no. >> there has been a little bit of time has lapsed since the
1:42 pm
initial controversy over recognition for, you know, black actors and other films and, of course, the ceremony now. would you say that steps have been taken to address this altering the academy's membership? does that ought automatically translate to greater diversity? >> we have had campaigners like al sharpton who called for greater diversification in terms of the membership. i do think, though, it is a bit of a problem. what are we saying? by giving a black a membership that those black police officers vote only for black films or white members of the academy will only vote for white films? i think in terms of the solutions advance, i think it's problematic the oscars is at the end of the process. there is a wider question about
1:43 pm
the industry and black and minority ethnic film makers, i think is a bigger question. >> how do you deal with that then? you are saying now it's not the time to look at it? it's about stories, about production, it's about film. it's about rewarding that kind of talent and merit but so then, how do you, when is the right time? expanding the rage of human experience. to be critical of hollywood, it doesn't encapsulate the range of human experiences in terms of south american film, african film, what's coming out of the middle east. there is exciting film makers and actors and actresses doing fantastic work that isn't being recognized by hollywood. i think there is a danger that hollywood, itself, becomes irrelevant if it doesn't engage
