5:01 am
>> reporter: i'm with the news from the english premier league. the team five points clear with nine matches left after their latest win in a field on the edge of greece hundreds of ten thousands of people some sleeping in the open, all of them hope possessing to cross the border into macedonia and continue their journey north. barring their path is a barbed wire fence and a political impasse as european politicians struggle to find a coordinated response. our correspondent is on the greek side of the border. tell us about the situation right now on that border. i can see thousands of people still stranded there. >> reporter: absolutely. the latest figure is now probably about 14,000 people are
5:02 am
here. some of them have been here for two to three weeks and their living conditions are getting worse. many have complained that they have lost cash, finished their money rather, but there was a rush of people towards the left because they distributing fruit so everyone rush there to get anything to eat. thanks for joining me. you were telling me that the number has probably more closer to 14,000. how can you cope with all of this? >> we can't handle this. we can only have hundreds, not thousands. we have lost control of the situation. it is impossible. >> reporter: one of the main issue is that the border is more
5:03 am
closed than open. every day they wake up that there are new restrictions. the latest one is that not all syrians will be allowed in and they've been selected according to the city of origin. did you hear that? >> yes. we hear that a lot. we are not allowed to pass. the u.n. has recognised the war. so many people. >> reporter: we are hearing for example that people are from raqqa and another i.s.i.l. stronghold and syria are not allowed in. >> yes. we heard it too, but we can't make anything out of it. it's true. >> reporter: one of the major issues here is that more than half of these refugees, a mother with children travelling alone, many of them tell me that their husband is ahead in germany, has
5:04 am
gone there a few months to settle. how will you deal with them if they have to stay here? >> we're trying to spot the ladies with the children to put them in hotels, organizations, to put them in hotels for seven or six months. we can relocate them back to the country where the husband is, but it's really hard when you have 14,000 people to find the women or the children or to make the interview. most of them prefer to take the risk of travelling alone or staying here in the open to get through the border >> reporter: most people are waiting for monday, the summit between e.u. and turkey. it seems there is sort of an orientated that these people stay here until this election is need for relocation. can greece handle all of these
5:05 am
people? >> it seems not. i don't think we were accommodated. even now we are seeing 14,000 people. i don't know how we can make them feel comfortable or secure enough to continue their journey for the border to be open. >> reporter: thank you very much. comfortable these people are not. you can probably see behind me. there's a mud puddle that has been there for a few days because there were bad weather conditions. most tents were completely soaked and a lot of children have got fever and diarrhoea and so forth. the number of refugees that arrived in greece over the past few days. the weather forecast is that will improve in the coming hours and people certainly on the
5:06 am
island are expecting a big flow of refugees to come here thank you for that. in the united states donald trump's hold on the republican nomination for president is a little looser after two victories. for the democrats bernie sanders also had a goodnight, although he lost heavily to hillary clinton. >> reporter: front runners were hopeful. >> let me say god bless kansas. and god bless maine. >> reporter: texas senator ted cruz won two of the four states and has now defeated donald trump in six states in the primaries. after easily winning kansas and
5:07 am
maine, cruz says he has solid tied himself as the only person being able to surpass donald trump >> it would be a disaster for donald trump to be our nominee. we will hand behind the strongest conservative in the race and also the candidate who has demonstrated, assuming the results hold up, that we have beat him seven times now. >> reporter: marco rubio was the big loser failing to win a state and finishing last in main behind john kasich. as for donald trump, he won louisiana, the state with the most delegates at stake and he remains the republican front runner, but he had a message. >> marco rubio in a very bad night. personally, i would call for him to drop out of the race. >> reporter: on the democratic side, bernie sanders might have rejuvenated his campaign after upsetting hillary clinton in two of the three states that voted. showing that while he trails
5:08 am
clinton in the delegate count needed to secure the nomination, he still has wide support. >> we are doing what i wanted to do, excite people, enner jiz people, bring them out. >> reporter: saturday's results a warm-up of sorts for march 15 when voters will cast ballots in delegate rich states of florida and ohio. >> march 15 is going to determine where this race is going. if marco rubio is not able to deliver florida he is out. if john kasich is not able to deliver his state of ohio, he is out. that will leave donald trump and ted cruz. >> reporter: people are accepting a message that they're not yet ready for any candidate with either party to run away with the nomination just yet voters in the west african
5:09 am
nation are choosing a new presidential. a record number of candidates are competing for the presidency. under five million people are eligible to vote. a run-off vote will be held if none win a majority. west african coastal countries are to form a force. it is intended to respond to attacks launched by groups such as al-qaeda. soldiers will receive training and support from spanish and french security forces and will be financed by the e.u. one of the most important political figures in sudan's political history was laid to rest. the united states once called him the incarnation of the
5:10 am
devil. >> reporter: thousands attended his funeral. in 1989 he helped orchestrate the coup that brought the president to power. ten months later the relationship soured. he formed his own movement. his opposition led him to being jailed several times. he was the only politician to support the arrest warrant for bashir. he later moderated his position presenting himself as a more mainstream politician in favor of democratic change. many of liberals hold him responsible for playing a part in the strict religious rules that govern sudan today. his career began in the 60s. in the subsequent years his bland of political islam would
5:11 am
see him fall in and out of favor. he held the post of sudan's attorney-general and for a short time its deputy prime minister. sudanese television described him as a thinker during his career i'm joined by the head of politics and international relations at the doha institute. thank you so much for being here with us on al jazeera to talk to us more about the legacy. first of all, in your view why was he such an influential and important figure in sudanese politics. >> that goes back to his early career. he was a well educated laurie it ette. he was very colorful, very charismatic, very unusual. he managed also to be at the center of politics from then on.
5:12 am
in his early career he was seen as a reformer and a chomp i don't know of islam. he was supporter of liberalism, democracy, rights and i think he has done a lot for sudan in that regard in the early time. then at a later stage, he was an attorney-general in the 1970s, he began to look less democratic and that continued what happened there? there seems to be a contradiction. he was controversial, but contradictions in his ideas and thoughts. he is seen as being responsible for the strict religious rules that govern sudan today. what happened and what do you think he will be most remembered for? >> yes. i think unfortunately as i said he is a tragic figure.
5:13 am
he will be remembered more for the abuses that happened during the time when he was in power, but he has also had wide influence around the region and i think his legacy will probably be tunisia, because that movement has been influenced by him in the 70s and the early 80s, and they manage to keep to his ideas of liberalism, democracy and rights of women. i think the role they're playing in tunisia would be more in line with his early thinking than his own practice, which i think has tragically managed to eclipse his reformist influence influential in sudan but also out of sudan like in tunisia. i want to touch on bashir.
5:14 am
he helped him come to power in the coup but then they had a falling out. was it april different in ideology-- a difference in ideology or a falling out? >> i think he wanted to have more democracy and decentralisation of power, but i think it was probably plain power struggle. bashiir was a figure head. i think at that time, but other people in the regime. he was becoming too authoritarian and to destructive for the interests of the regime itself. he was having his hand everywhere in the region.
5:15 am
so they thought him a nuisance thank you for that. still much more ahead on this al jazeera news hour. seek war or pursue peace. afghanistan government gives the taliban an ultimatum. serbian businessmen making affordable small planes. former world number one has the blue monster in miami coming u . turkey's biggest newspaper has published its first edition since being over taken by the
5:16 am
government. journalists have described what happened of the paper as a dark day for turkish media. al jazeera's correspondent joins us live. you have a copy, i understand, of today'sed edition. >> reporter: yes. a marked contrast between today's and yesterday's so far as the editorial stance. i want to talk about the marked contrast here on the site though. it is just behind my left shoulder there. a much calmer scene today. much quieter, no protesters and a very stepped-up security presence i think yee need to link it
5:17 am
a little bit more. apologies. do tell us what is going on with this newspaper today. >> reporter: sorry i was having an audio issue there. i will continue about what's going on here. very calm here today and a real effort to cordon off the area and try to ensure that protesters do not get access to area. you have the plain clothes policemen, the riot police, a lot of police fences. we were not allowed to get closer than this. we were going to try and have our live position closer to the headquarters but we're not allowed to do so. that's on that front. then you have the actual newspaper today. let me show you a copy of today's edition. this would normally be 42 page newspaper. today it is about 12 pages. one difference. no reporters' names, no bi-lines
5:18 am
ahead of the articles that have been written today. also a much softer stance towards a.k.p., the party of president erdogan, the par. right here you see a picture of him standing close to some turkish women in which it is saying that he l p will be celebrating international women's day with turkish women here. in this picture you see him smiling. a marked contrast to which you usually see of him in this paper. the big headline parading a project that is a third bridge. you have to columns, columnists. very clearly a big difference between today's paper and yesterday's paper. yesterday front page said the
5:19 am
constitution in turkey has been suspended. today you have pieces that are praising the government of president erdogan and that is a very significant change in tone and editorial stance than it was before thank you so much for that. some criticss have accused the e.u. of turning turkey's record. turkey was declared el edgible to turn the e.u. in 1987 and started negotiations in 2005. a policy analyst and senior program executive for the european policy center is live from brussels. first off, what in your view is the government hoping to achieve by taking control of the newspaper, especially at a time when progress was seen to have been made in some areas before the next stage of the session
5:20 am
talks >> the turkish government, particularly president erdogan, have become increasingly - they don't accept criticism or dissent. they've been cracking down on it hard over the last year or two. yesterday legal seizure was the nail in the coffin for free media in turkey. there's many reasons behind this. on the agenda now the main reason is president erdogan's ambitions to turn turkey in a pl system of governance with him at the helm. tur in order to achieve this, because it is not a popular, another popular issue in turkey at the moment. they need to crackdown on all of the independent voices and critical need request why which you have seen this one and other media and television outlets as well as hundreds of journalists arrested and charged crackdown on we've heard some criticism
5:21 am
from the commissioner who said that human rights are not goeshable for prospective members. do you think europe needs turkey that they can't afford to voice concern or condemnation over the events at this particular newspaper? >> so far the e.u.'s position has been shameful. they're trading agreement between refugees and human rights and fundamental rights and freedoms in turkey because the comments that came from the e.u. over the last couple of days about concern and worry, this isn't enough. this is an ongoing systematic crackdown on freedom of speech in turkey. the e.u. is supposed to be a value based organization. so far the value seems to have been totally old off in order that they can have turkey hold
5:22 am
on to the majority of the refugees a crackdown on freedom of speech, but the government says that the newspaper was a terrorist network and it needed to be stopped. how would you describe this newspaper? >> i have been a columnist for the last eight years. this is absolute nonsense what they say. the movement is a civil movement. it is not a terrorist organization. they don't have any evidence whatsoever to show that this is a terrorist organization. this is sheer propaganda thank you very much for sharing your views with us. thank you for your time >> you're welcome. thank you two italian hostages have been freed from i.s.i.l. in libya and are now home. they were a group of four working for an italian
5:23 am
construction company. in iraq ten soldiers have been killed by an i.s.i.l. suicide bomb attack. the group targeted army barracks in anbar province. afghanistan's president has given the taliban an ultimatum, choose war or peace. the afghan government had expected to hold direct negotiations with the taliban this week. live to tony birtly. the taliban had said there was a meeting of minds, if you will, between the government and then and that talks would take place. what happened? why did they pull out of these talks? >> a big surprise. we're trying to guess that and fill in the blanks at the
5:24 am
moment. it could be that this is a diplomatic slight of hand. they've always had this hand line stance. there would be preconditions to any talk. that would be the release of their prisoners. that the americas would withdraw and that hasn't happened. there was talk and we were led to believe these talks would go ahead because there was a mood of compromise, both from the afghan government and the taliban. he is seen as a moderate. perhaps he has realized if he is seen as being too moderate and too willing to compromise, he will lose support with his groundswell of troops and supporters. it could be this is a slight of hand. it may not be, but we will have to wait. things are heading in the right direction. there was talk of compromise from both camps. it was strange that they were called off last night because they were due to start in
5:25 am
islamabad today thank you for that time for the world weather. it is snowy and very cold in europe. >> reporter: yes. it's march, it should be spring but nobody told the weather that. if we look at the pictures from northern italy. it certainly has been feeling very cold. that is where the line of all the wintery weather is. just to the west of that, even if you haven't seen any snow there has been stormy conditions. this is what it looked like in n ice. a very stormy day there. we had some pretty miscellaneous rabble weather elsewhere and around the coast further south and italy.
5:26 am
that gives you an indication that the winds were strong too. this whole system is pushing its way towards the east at the moment. as it does so it is dragging in lots of wet weather, lots of strong winds but also dragging down the temperatures as well. ahead of it though it is still surprisingly mild for this time of year. even if we fast forward into tomorrow, our temperature has just continued to rise this time up to 20 degrees. the average is nearer seven or eight. this is really quite balmy weather here. it is also very unsettled and saying cool and unsettled for us on tuesday too thank you very much for that. negotiations are underway in slovakia to form a coalition government after the ruling party failed to win a majority win. our correspondent has more. >> reporter: as votes were
5:27 am
counted, anti refugee sentiments seem to be the winner in the country which is next in line to become the president of the european union. the biggest his honourishock is. >> translation: it is a big shame for the country. it is a catastrophe that will have fascists in parliament when we're to take over the e.u. presidency. >> reporter: this man won more votes than other but will need coalition partners to form a government. the anti immigration campaign was on race and religion >> translation: i'm not going to evaluated the numbers. we expected a 4 to 5% more. it will not be easy. >> reporter: the number of refugees and migrants from countries at war has been the far right. the ruling party which is on the
5:28 am
left of the political divide pledged never to accept e.u. quotas and relocating refugees. eight political groups will take place on the new parliament. most agree on a hard line stance on muslim refugees which causes concern for the muslim community there. >> so many of us are married to slovak women. we speak the language. so it was for us little bit shock. >> reporter: the gains are lool to play out in brussels as well owning aircraft is usually expensive, but now there is less expensive. >> reporter: engineers are
5:29 am
crafting light aircraft from basic materials in this workshop in serbia. >> translation: production of an aircraft starts with a tin sheet. it takes us just one month to complete the plane and get it ready for its maiden flight. >> reporter: there are a number of new aircraft ready to be sent to swedish and german pilots who can use them for training exercises. the company has had to scrape together the finances to build the aircraft. they cost $60,000 each. a competitive price in the european market. >> translation: foreign investors see serbia as an unstable country which doesn't give bank guarantees. we need to sell under market price. it is to cover production costs. over time we have proved we make good quality products. we have focused on quality. >> reporter: the planes can apply at speeds up to 200 km/h at five hours at a time.
5:30 am
they're powder by petrol, are cheap to maintain. the company has sold 70 aircraft in the five years since it began. for anyone who might be afraid to fly in one, it may be some comfort to know that there is an emergency par chute that is designed to bring the crew and the plane down safely still ahead on the al jazeera news hour. fighting back with language. a native american tribe's determination to make sure that its unique culture survives. plus a digital detox. in sport, the second most successful team in history. n history.

5:34 am
of food, fruit and medicine. >> translation: we could be in their position and if we were we would need a helping hand to hold us and walk with us. >> translation: we come to help all the time. they're human beings. >> reporter: greece has been struggling even before the massive influx of refugees. dealing with an eight year old economic crisis means there's little the state here can help. now civilians and charities have stepped in. soup kitchens for the unemployed and homeless are now feeding the refugees too. this woman is her first day here. >> if they see and they get to know that this is something that
5:35 am
we must do, help people who are hungry and in the cold, i think that more people will come. >> reporter: despite the generosity of the people of greece, few of the refugees want to stay in this country. this family arrived in athens one and a half months ago. >> translation: we have registered here, but it is not our intention to live here. we would like to go to germany. my brother has been there for two and a half months and we would like to join minimum. >> reporter: at least 5,000 people are stranded in greece. their journey to other european countries has been blocked. that's because european officials have failed to negotiate how to deal with them. many greeks are worried about what will happen if people keep coming and the borders remain closed

payment schedule drawn up by the ire rubbish state. the department of health and the judge administering the claims have refused to grant us an interview but have also condemned media criticism of the scheme as lacking object jektivity. they do take the view that the scheme is the best, fairest and simplest way of compensating women for many years after pain and suffering. it bears no recognition of payments. one woman take the case to court and got $300,000. in ireland there is a small book telling lawyers what they should expect to get for their clients if they hurt a knee or ankle. the pay outs were higher than the victims have received now. >> it is predicated on the presumption that a lot of them
5:39 am
suffered, was simply an operation that shouldn't have been performed, but that they suffered no injuries afterwards. that they carried on their lives like everybody else, that it was just an inconvenience at the time. >> reporter: the most striking thing about these injuries is that they were done to the women not on accident but by perfect, that appears that they could open them up so they could have more and more babies regardless of the imimpossibling on themselves >> i was never the same person, never fully the same person as i was, yes. >> reporter: many believe their small compensation, the letters from the state advising them to spoil themselves with the process do nothing but be little everything they have gone through in honduras gunman wearing police uniform attacked a pool hall and ataked 12 people.
