challen challenge. osama bin javi. >> a libyan political analyst, what does this mean for the people of libya? >> it's a time of massive instability and it's so fluid that the changes are coming so rapid that it's difficult for libyans to unite on one idea. you may find demonstrations for the government but counter demonstrations in other areas. i don't necessarily think people, given the stories that they have been told over the past year and a half of the civil war t doesn't seem like the era is right for or the chief actions are right for unity government. the type of massive instability and concern for libyans. >> what's going on with the gnc. it's not this homogenous all on the same page organization.

6:17 am
what that threat means is unclear. regardless of what steps panama takes, the attention to the country's financial sector is unwand. former diplomat and banking lawyer says domestic politics really only left parnama with one choice. >> they had to respond because there was a political pressure, a grass root political preve pressure to defend national interests the government is the saying it is making it stronger and more trans parent, a sector that spurted growth and brought in millions of dollars. it's long been known to attract criminals laundering money and rich investors. >> the country was removed from a global gray list of money lau laundering countries only to now face the threat of being put back on such a list.

6:20 am
like a full-fledged political crisis that needs to be resolved. and everybody except the prime minister, himself, recognized this is doing tremendous damage to the reputation of iceland and the international contest. >> the furious protests over all of this reflects a sense of betrayal among the people. since ice land recovered from the bank crash, store construction projects are restarted as the economy has picked up. yet the country's banks remain week and governments with capitol controls mean a limit on how much icelanders can even take out of cash machines. no context, the idea their prime minister has been helping his wife to hide tennessee of millions of dollars so far away is for many people absolutely infuriating. so wintrist has become part of the language here in misquoted shakespeare on the tee shirts. them one reads: not my prime minister. ones all of the wrong reasons.

6:22 am
kilometers per hour. we have gusts on top of that of 185 kilometers per hour. if it was in the waters around the americas, we would be calling this the top end of a category 1 hurricane. here, of course, they have a different way of naming the storms, but that's what it would be called around the americas. it's a fairly decent storm edgingly eastward but the savingration, peter, is that it's move can quickly hopefully the end of the rain will be shortly. >> the instant messaging service what's app has decided to en crept the data. they say it will be virtually impossible for governments to intercept. the authorities in the u.s. and brazil have pressured tech data. the f f.b.i. recently dropped a case against apple. larry mcgee, the society analyst says many will welcome this

>> they want to be kept safe. when they were return to turkey, they can't be kept in, you know, in any conditions. there has to be humane conditions for them so they don't lose those rights. they could make some asylum claim infie they hadn't done so in greece as well. >> what happens on to them when they get off of the boat? paperwork and a holding center? well, that's much what's happening at the moment. to be honest, what happens next is a get unclear. i think the plan is people would be returned to their home countries. those are coming from other places in to turkey are to be sent back.
6:29 am
a notable exception might be with syria. so people are not to be returned to countries where they might face persecution or worse. there is an awful lot of that happening in syria. i wouldn't expect anyone to be returned. that would be a gross rviolatio of their rights to safety. people are not just in turkey coming from syria. you've got people coming from many other parts of the world as well and they could be deported back there under the current plan. >> pardon me for interrupting you. within that lack of clarity, they make landfall intie. so within that lack of clarity, how safe are they? you are telling us they are safe. we get that. how do you sift through the individual groups because a lot of these people lost everything because they went from turkey to greece by sea. i say that they have a right to
6:30 am
safety. whether or not they really are going to be safe in turkey is, i think, another question honestly. until a week or so ago, it was the eu's policy that turkey was not a safe country for the return much my grant. greece wasn't returning anyone to turkey. it didn't deem turkey to be a safe country for return. the eu commission decided that turkey was going to be safe. i wouldn't clear on what evidence that was made on. in terms of it being a safe place for people to go to, this is something that's been decreed. i don't know on what evidence and it remains to be seen whether or not people really will be safe. i think the fact that the return happened, one boat went back, others are being suspended for the week. it suggests that there are some question marks as to the treatment of people on return
6:31 am
that is out there. the other question about: so how do you process this paperwork thick is a serious problem. 1 makes the claim for asylum, where do they come from? what is country of origin? not everyone has assistant vice presidented passports. not everyone has passports. some have forged documents. many have no documents at all. i think it's a very difficult process here i think those -- and there are hundreds of -- asylum in greece over the past weekend are going to take some time to process whether or not they have valid claims or not. it's no easy task and it may take many months if not a year or no. >> tom brook, thank you very much. activists in alleppo have confirmed the only road linking the city to turkey has been cud off by kurdish fighters near the
