10:01 am
compassion or more barbed wire? i have your sport, including superbowl winning quarterback peyton manning set to announce his retirement. taming the blue monster, rory mcelroy takes the lead at the championship. an isil suicide bomber killed at least 60 people in iraq. pleas say a fuel truck packed with explosives was driven into a crowded security checkpoint 9. dozens were were wounded in the blast. >> what more can you tell us about this? >> this happened at probably the worst time at that checkpoint, just around mid-day as cars and convoys of families going south and those returning back to baghdad would have been stopped at that very checkpoint, very
10:02 am
close to the ancient city of boob lon to be able to go further. that's when that fuel tanker packed not with fuel but explosives detonated with a suicide bomber inside. local officials say that this is the worst attack they've seen here. it is 90 kilometers south of baghdad and on the main road. it's normally a place that has been relatively calm, but these days nothing is really calm for long. >> there's been away spike in violence overrese days in iraq. where are we in the fight against isil? reports suggest that the government and coalition are making gains. >> they are certainly if you look at the map of iraq making gains on the ground in the west in anbar province. and recently in the north, north of baghdad and i samara, iraq
10:03 am
forces now pushing forward and pushing out hundreds of size as i will fighters. they've been retaking territory basically as a preparation to be able to close in on key cities. they want to get up to western anbar on the syrian border and to try to push isil back there and clearly want to get to mosul. that one is as everyone admits going to be very, very complicated. there are so many players onboard. it is such an isil stronghold, and it has 2 million people in it that retaking mosul presents a very, very serious challenge. adrien. >> jane, many thanks, live from baghdad. >> in the united states, donald trump's hold on the republican nomination for president looks like it may not be inevitable. texas senator ted cruz beaten
10:04 am
twice in the latest primaries. bernie sanders also had a good night, although he lost heavily to hillary clinton in louisiana. we have this report. >> nice to have you all. >> a night where front runners for both parties were humbled and an alternative to donald trump emerged for the republicans. >> let me say, god bless kansas. >> and got bless main. >> texas senator ted cruz has now defeated trump in six states in the primary. after winning kansas and mare, cruz said he has solidified himself as the only republican capable of surpassing the new york businessman on his way to the nomination. >> it would be a disaster for donald trump to be our mom kneel, and wore going to stand behind the strongest conservative in the race and also the candidate who at this point has demonstrated, assuming the kansas and maine results
10:05 am
hold up that we have beaten donald trump not once, not twice, but seven times now. >> marco rubio was the big loser, failing to win a state and finishing last in maine behind john kasich. trump won louisiana, the state with the most delegates at stake and remains the republican front runner. he had a message for one of the losing candidates. >> marco rubio had a very, very bad night and personally, i'd call for him to drop out of the race. >> 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 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, energize people, bring them out. >> it was the republican race most shaken up, still saturday's results a warm up for marsh 15
10:06 am
when voters will cast blots in florida, rubio's home state, and ohio, where kasich is governor. >> marsh 15 is going to determine where this race is going. if marco rubio isn't able to deliver florida, he's out. if january kasich is not able to deliver hit home state of ohio, he's out, leaving only trump and cruz. >> in this most unpredictable election, voters continue to surprise, sending a message that they are not yet ready for any candidate of either party to run away with the nomination just yet. gabe's with us now live from washington. so super saturday gauge that is cruz is still in this race. does it mean a trump victory for the nomination is still far from inevitable. >> it's very much far from inevitable at this point especially after cruz's performance on saturday. he did very, very well. he picked up more delegates than donald trump and he also won two
10:07 am
that states also you saw in the story and the two states that cruz lost to trump, it was very, very close, so cruz has pretty much established himself as the key alternative to trump, and this is really where the battle was at between really marco rubio and ted cousin trying to present themselves as the key alternative to trump and at least results on saturday showed voters were indicating that they liked when they saw in cruz and also indicates that let's not forget ben carson just dropped out of the race on friday. it appears that a lot of ben carson supporters or a good proportion of them went to ted cruz, as well. it's a very good night for ted cruz. donald trump while still the front runner far from wrapping up the nomination. >> on the other side of the political divide, sanders still winning against clinton. is it still wide open in the democratic race?
10:08 am
>> sanders had a pretty good saturday. he picked up two state wins but hillary clinton is still the front runner. why? because of delegates. candidates picking up the delegates they need to secure the nomination is what it comes down to and on saturday even better than sapped two state wins couldn't pick up more delegates, because she won louisiana. it was a moral victory sanders. >> many thanks. turkey's biggest newspaper published its first edition since being taken over by the government. police fired tear gas at protestors on saturday. crowds chanted a free press cannot be silenced.
10:09 am
journalists described what happened to the paper often critical of the government as a dark day for turkish media. >> the scene outside of the newspaper headquarters a stark contrast to what it had been the past few days when there were protests. yesterday, protests and dispersal of the crowd by water cannon, by tear gas, scene that is turned ugly and violent throughout the evening. today, very calm but a very stepped up security presence. we have riot police, we have undercover policemen, plain clothed policeman trying to cordon off the area and ensure that no protestors access this area today. it is much calmer than yesterday at this hour. another stark contrast to talk about between the newspaper as it was yesterday and before and also it is today, yesterday, the front page essentially said the
10:10 am
constitution has been suspended. today, let me show you the noon that has been published after it went into trusteeship. today a very different newspaper. first off, the size, this is about 12 pages. typically on a sunday, this would be three times as large. also a much softer editorial stance toward a.k.p. party toward the president and prime minister. here you see a picture of president erdogan which is smiling standing close to a turkish women saying he will be celebrating national women's day. this is not typically the kind of picture you would see of president erdogan in this newspaper which until yesterday had been an opposition newspaper. you have a headline in which a bridge project is being praised, saying the people are waiting for its completion. again, a very marked difference between the tone editor ally which this newspaper which had
10:11 am
been an opposition newspaper yesterday and it really goes to show how much difference a day makes when it comes to this story here in turkey. critics accused of the e.u. of turning a blind eye to turkey's human rights record. a policy analyst and senior program executive for the european policy center joins us. >> so far, the e.u.'s position has been shameful, basically trading, making a transactional agreement between refugees and human rights and fundamental rights and freedoms in turkey because the sort of comments that came from the e.u. over the last couple of days about concern and worry, i mean, this isn't enough. this is an ongoing system take crack down on freedom of speech in turkey and the eu i also supposed to be a values based organization and so far, values seem to of been totally sold off in order that they can have
10:12 am

10:13 am
the greek-macedonian border. germany in return has criticized the greek government for not doing enough to prepare for this latest influx of refugees. what's being done there if anything to ease their plight? >> well, the greek government is trying to do as much as possible, but you have to remember that this bottleneck all started when austria and some balkan states took lateral decisions and started imposing these very stiff measures at the border crossing, so that's when this all started and when this camp sort of grew over the past few weeks into a place where living conditions are extremely difficult. >> it has become the symbol of europe's failure and disunity when it comes to refugees. the border that remains more closed than open. the latest selection system to
10:14 am
cross into macedonia dependency on the date of arrival in greece. those waiting here landed on february 17. these the following day. >> i've been here 16 days. i've no more money. i never thought it would be like this. my son went to germany. the whole trip took him 10 days. >> the daily cop of 500 to be allowed to transit to the balkans has been rarely met. it has become hardship and frustration where people roam around in search for answers. over the past three weeks, the camp spread from a transit one designed for 1500 people, that's where the big tents are, to this ever sprawling multi-colored tent village. the makeshift camp stretches across both sides of the rail track. the long queue on the right is for food. the area of highest tension is to the north at the crossing point, a double fence separates
10:15 am
both countries. the macedonian side empty exempt for security forces. the greek side is crowded with more tents and anxious people. it's in the midst of all this that this 9-year-old and his parents pitched their tents. all five sleep in this space. >> it's not safe. it's not fair. >> perhaps there are no better words to express how most feel. >> i'm very sad. >> why some explain it to me. >> because get anything, smallest needs of life, i don't have. even drinking water, i don't have. i am hungry, also. i don't have anything. they must live here so they can feel what we are hurting. >> about one third stranded here
10:16 am
are children below the age of five. many suffer from diarrhea and fever. aid workers fear that soon measles and scabies could spread if their living conditions don't improve. the people here are in our waiting for the eu summit with turkey to nuns clear guidelines about their future. for those here, it's already too late. >> show us around, tell us what's happening around you right now. it looks pretty grim there. >> it is pretty gym. i mean, it is now the end of the day, so people are starting to settle in for the night. now, just behind me is the sort of tentville that keeps growing up. this young lady, i was speaking to her earlier, she has a heart issue and she has been taken yesterday to a hospital but she doesn't have a tent, so now, she is sleeping on the ground on that blanket, not knowing really
10:17 am
how she's going to go through this and how long it's going to last. if you look down here, that's a lot of -- there's a lot of chaos. that queue is because some volunteers do bring in the evening hot food, which is really consists only about a cup of soup. now, that queue stretches all the way to the other side of the railway that you probably saw in that drone footage, that railway being right in the middle of the camp. you have people actually sleeping there between the tracks, so very difficult situation for many people. i saw four very young children, probably the oldest was four, they were lost. their mother exhausted had slept in the tent and they sort of wandered off and were just walking around, people were wondering who they were. eventually, their mother was found, but this is just to show you how difficult it is and also about 54% of the people in this
10:18 am
camp are mothers and children, and most of the mothers are traveling alone because their husbands have already reached germany or other places in northern europe at the time when the borders were open. now they are stranded here and if they reach that crossing, if they're time comes to get through, if they mention family reunification, they'll be immediately turned back. >> there is no guarantee they will reach all the way to western europe, is there? >> absolutely there is no guarantee. iraqis who are stranded on macedonia's northern border with serbia now, i have spoken so the coordinator of the camp there. it's actually serbia that pushed them back, some because of their city of origin. people from damascus and baghdad are not allowed to go through this balkan route anymore. they discovered once they had
10:19 am
crossed this point here and they thought that was the most difficult one, there are also people from raqqa and the resort to isil stronghold who are not allowed to go through anymore and others of wondering if at some point, their town of origin will be deemed safe and they will also not be allowed. most of the people here are pinning all their hopes in the summit on monday between the e.u. and turkey, and they're hoping that after that, at least they will get some guidelines on what are the new rules rather than every day discover by word of mouth what is happening. many thanks there from the greek side of the border with macedonia. >> negotiations to form a coalition government are underway in slovakia follow the failure of the ruling party to win a majority. a nazi party made major gains
10:20 am
there. >> as votes were counted in slovakia, anti refugee sentiment seems to be the winner in the country which is next in line to become the president of the european union. the biggest gain is the nazi party. >> it's a big shame for slovakia. >> the party of the prime minister won more volts than others but will need a coalition government. >> i'm not going to evaluate the numbers. for yours, i'll say we expected a better result, about 45% more. it will not be easy. i'm saying that very clearly. >> a rise in the number of refugees and migrants from
10:21 am
countries at war has left them hungry. at least eight political aid groups will take seats in the new parliament. they disagree on education and health care reforms but most agree on a hard line stance against refugees which causes concern for the muslim community in slovakia. >> some of us are married to slovak women. we speak the language as i have told you. it was for us a little bit shock. >> slovakia will get a bigger role in policy discussions over the refugee crisis when it takes over the presidency in july. the recent hard line gains are likely to play out in brussels, as well. al jazeera. owning a light aircraft can also be an expensive business, but an entrepreneur in serbia has come up with a way to make taking off a little bit cheaper. caroline malone reports.

10:23 am
up to 200 kilometers an hour for five hours at a time. they power by petrol, are cheap to maintain and don't need long runways at a take off and land. for anyone who might be afraid to fly in one, it may be some comfort to know that as an emergency parachute designed to bring the plane and its drew down safely. thousands of people in georgia formed a human chain in the capital. the georgian government said they would renew the existing deal to send gas to armenia through georgia. they want nothing to do with russia. thousands rallied in favor of a female fighter pilot imprisoned in russia. she is on trial for her alleged involvement in the deaths of two

10:26 am
there aren't many rides anymore. >> the government said it is trying to revise the waterways, but is constrained by a lack of resources. >> we had a big budget set aside for the rivers but you can't dredge them with cash, you need dredges, we don't of them. seven were bought from the shipping ministry in 1972 and no government has purchased any since then. >> meanwhile, he takes on different jobs doing what he can to get by. the lack of action in saving the rivers is letting down not just people like him but those who still rely on the services he provides. al jazeera, bangladesh. still to come on the program, one of the most important political figures in sudan's modern history is laid to rest. we'll tell you about his life. >> fighting back with language, native american tribe's
