hello i'm rob matheson and this is the news our live from doha coming up in the next sixty minutes the rising tensions the u.s. says it will stop handing out short term visas to visitors from turkey now turkey says it will do the same thing to the u.s. . another boat tragedy involving will hinge or refugees fleeing me and mark two people are dead several others missing. finding their voice catalonia as the silent majority speak out against a break from spain. remembering memorials across latin america fifty years after the death of a revolutionary i call. that we begin this news hour with a rapidly escalating diplomatic dispute between turkey and the u.s.
2:02 am
in the last few hours has said it won't process visas for u.s. citizens who want to travel from the u.s. . to turkey the only ones it will hand out will be for people who want to move to turkey permanently it's come shortly after the u.s. made a similar announcement about some u.s. visas for turks a few days ago a u.s. consulate employee was arrested in istanbul they've been charged with having links to businessman for till the golan the government blames golan for last year's failed coup ok for more we can speak to diane estabrook in washington d.c. diane give us some of the background to what's been happening. well as you mentioned that this has been going on it's really been escalating over the past few days this started as you mentioned after this employee who worked for the consulate was arrested supposedly for having ties to this cleric who's been living here in the united states for about twenty years and there's been pressure on the u.s.
2:03 am
to extradite google and the problem is that it's not all that simple if the u.s. were to extradite him he could potentially challenge this in court now this u.s. consulate employee isn't the only person who's been arrested and detained in turkey there are about a dozen other americans who have been arrested as well one include is a nasa scientist another is a christian missionary vice president mike pence and secretary of state rex tillerson have been trying to negotiate the release of the the missionaries but have not been successful to date so now we've seen this is a consulate employer arrested and then this diplomatic to for tat over these visas so it's a sticky situation and not quite sure when this might all be resolved dive and i think for a much indeed. well tensions have been brewing between the u.s. and turkey ever since the attempt to overthrow president of egypt in july twenty
2:04 am
sixth seen turkey's been trying to force its nato ally to extradite to google and ankara as arrested about a dozen american nationals for alleged links to the golan movement as part of a crackdown against plotters several attempts by washington to seek the release of its citizens have failed more than fifty thousand people have been jailed one hundred fifty thousand have been sacked from their jobs in turkey since that botched coup which killed two hundred and forty nine people. and is chief editor of washington hati it's an english turkish news portal and he's joining us now from washington d.c. thank you very much indeed for your time is this particularly focused on fatah or golan or other wider issues at stake here. if it will likely learn is an important factor and turkey has been asking for his extra dition but there are other issues for example there is an iranian turkish businessman results are up has
2:05 am
been arrested for about eighteen months. when he arrived in miami and he basically for a few years created this mechanism to weight iranian sanctions but he also had very close ties with the misurata donz government at the time and the recent indictment of also accused one of mr ira dance cause confidante former minister so also results are up and the state bank's former. top employee these two people who have been arrested in in new york i'm sure are down also wants them to rule we and this is an other issue that going back and forth between the u.s. and turkey what impact do you think this increase in tensions between the u.s. and turkey is going to have when it comes to conflicts on the ground syria for example as it is a good point
2:06 am
a case in point with turkey having moved into the provinces just a matter of hours ago. speaking of syria and other big issue between turkey and us current kids been accusing us for helping and supporting syrian kurds fiche the arabs long government basically labels them as terrorist organizations actually very start talking about the problem between the two countries only we cannot stop anywhere there are so many issues and now as you mentioned turkey is seemingly going into italy. this point are very much in unchartered territory as far as we can know there is there is the have not seen such suspension of visas between the countries and now the turkey all sources are spente against the
2:07 am
us government there is kind of a chicken game between the capitals but that same time because two arab allies nutter allies and allies for about seventy years would call each other and strategic ally of working in many areas across the world this kind of tension this kind of fight between the capitals i think going to escalate and going to. make it turkey which is already there eyes on later in the neighborhood. will make things very much much more difficult for ankara in relation to the case of the tiller girl and how strong is the argument that the turkish government's expectations of what the u.s. government can actually do in terms of the judicial process related to for to look go and are somewhat. over it they have high expectations of that for in fact the
2:08 am
u.s. government is limited in the amount of action it can take in relation to the cleric . first of all there are number of court cases have been going on in turkey with regards to cool cases. there are more than dozen cases and recently indictments as the indictments are released and the suspects and cool suspects have been. testifying in front of the course there are more and more indications that the gland mormons have been heavily involved with the court and but the problem i think as far as we can see and we can tell from the impression. is receiving from the u.s. offer szell's that u.s. turkish government is unable to tie directly fettle like glenn to
2:09 am
kuwait and even the the mormon the member of the mormon members of the mormon clearly have been involved with the court and there's once a can point any other one is turkey and the rule of law in turkey have been gotten worse and worse in the index of the rule of law turkey now one of the versed countries in the. rate in the bottom of thailand so even the u.s. government wants to exit or die if they want to exit or died settle like land it's really hard to make that case in front of the federal judge val look at what's going on in turkey with the guards to treatment of the other suspects since the court turned around tanya thank you very much indeed for your time. i am coalition led by former al qaeda linked fighters is promising
2:10 am
a fierce fight against those who enter its territory. province. is responding to an offensive by the free syrian army or f.s.a. turkey is backing the operation from its side of the border and forces have opened fire from there. is made up of several factions that includes opposition groups that were pushed into it after syrian government forces we took aleppo last december the f.s.a. crossed the border from turkey into a province on saturday. reports. turkish artillery shelling. positions inside syria the former al qaeda affiliated group controlled most of it. and this border area is the focal point of what turkish authorities refer to as a serious campaign. and the free syrian army is sending reinforcements to that i
2:11 am
had. the starting point for the new border campaign. which has thousands of fighters is vowing to fight to the death news of the new campaign is raising concerns for civilians in. if the turkish army enters back by russian planes they have committed a massacre a few days ago and that is for sure and acceptable to me and to any muslim who rejects the presence of players in our country. the russians are the first and last enemy of the syrian people are backing bashar al assad how can they be supporting the syrian people. the new push by turkey comes after an agreement with russia and iran last month to set up a deescalation zone in. the turkish army will be operating in the city while the russians will be deployed outside the province it is one of four deescalation
2:12 am
zones the others are the oscars of the capital damascus or the border with jordan a lot of them parts of homes. the zones what established after iran russia and turkey decided to set aside that differences and find a permanent solution to the syrian conflict. the new operation could be part of a broader deal between russia turkey and iran but we don't know who would run one. from the promise and what will become of moderate opposition factions and the thousands of civilians living in the area. plenty more ahead on the news iraq tights race in liberia to find a replacement for africa's first elected female president also thousands of homes

2:14 am
when it went down over half a million people have taken shelter in camps in bangladesh to escape the violence which the un has called a textbook example of ethnic cleansing a charge made him denies mohammed has met a young refugee who says he survived an attack by the army on the day human rights watch says mass killings were carried out in rocking. despite the relief his family tries to provide eighteen year old or hindu refugee mohammad is still haunted for a while his mother and siblings try to give him a brief respite from the extreme heat and humidity but no matter how much medicine is given or the number of bandages applied his scars both physical and psychological will remain. he took us out from our
2:15 am
home and tied our hands behind our backs he pulled us along the road as he pulled us through the village through the jungle and took us to join another group of people and then they made us lie down on top of one another mohammad all says when soldiers from me and mars army began shooting at them he was hit twice in the back . at first he pretended to be dead but then again when i opened my eyes to see if they'd left a note when i opened my eyes they saw me and shot me here two of his brothers were killed in the army's attack on mungo a village in iraq and stayed on august twenty seventh mohammed who was convinced he also would not survive a mood in the clinton road and i thought i would die so i prayed i thought to myself i'm not going to see my relatives anymore mohamed tools brother sure if i was desperate to get him some help they're going to doctors but they're not doctors we couldn't find any doctor there was military everywhere so i couldn't go to the pharmacy and get him any medicine people were telling me i should go break down the door of the pharmacy and bring him medicine but i couldn't go there because of the
2:16 am
military. tells us that in addition to his two brothers who were killed dozens more of his relatives were also executed during the attack a recent report by human rights watch included interviews with witnesses and survivors who told the organization that me and morris military didn't just carry out mass killings that day but that they also sexually assaulted stabbed and beat villagers who were gathering for safety in a residential compound and while the u.n. has called the actions of man mars military a textbook example of ethnic cleansing man or as government has categorically denied carrying out any atrocities against the rangers. or muhammad tools heartbroken mother there is no time to dwell on the past taking care of her family even in conditions as miserable as these is her priority as a living why didn't they when i see my sons williams i don't feel like going back to our village and also i set fire to a high and they said fine everywhere we saw that and we had no choice but to leave
2:17 am
they may have been able to leave the violence behind but for mohammed will it's clear the horror of what he lived through will never really go away. at the tank ali refugee camp in cox's bazaar bangladesh aid officials say refugee camps are getting too crowded putting thousands at risk of disease the u.n. has brought in huge doses of a column of action to prevent a possible outbreak the. nine point six million square meters of space. eight hundred eighty nine football stadiums if we can put it in that way so this is huge and all these people are crowded down there they lack facilities there is dire situation there is shortage of water these shortages of like toilet facilities and everything so experiences that we have seen in the past in other such crises
2:18 am
moments that when people. are always having call it outbreak well simon business is executive director of the international campaign for the way he's joining us from washington d.c. thank you for your time. bangladesh and the aid agencies as we just heard are having to deal with the situation but what pressure do you think might work to put to persuade me and mars government to change its approach or what we're asking for and what we're campaigning for right now is for the united nations and for our governments to put effective pressure on burma's army. to. it's a burmese army which is committing these atrocities against the ranger and forcing these refugees to flee to bangladesh and so we're looking for tough sanctions against the burmese army and its business interests and also a global zimbardo. but as we had
2:19 am
a muhammad report me i'm absolutely determined to put forward the view that it is none of what none of the accusations that it's facing are correct how do you put pressure on a government when it is so staunchly against that pressure i mean you know. denials mean nothing the evidence is very clear what will cause. the burmese army to listen is when you know we embargo any kind. to the burmese army and when we sanction individual members of the army make it clear to them that they could face prosecution. in that international criminal court and also if we go off their business interests including you know their involvement in the precious gem trade you know we can we can put effective pressure on the burmese army and its business interests and that's what they listen to but business
2:20 am
interests and the arms trade all mean money. likely is it do you think that commercial organizations are going to want to side with you when the alternative is that they're going to lose out on the cash. well you know we in the past we got most of the major jewelry retailers in the world not to buy gems mined in burma in no so you know we can we can get the do that again you know what jewelry what jury retailers listen to is their own customers and their own shareholders they've listened to in the past and. we're very certain that we can also get these jewelers to cut off at least the boonies ami's flow of money from the gems trade that is an interesting point because it's one thing for an organization
2:21 am
like yourselves of course to attempt to put pressure on these companies but how much response do you think is there from the customers of these companies and their shareholders is there really that level of interest that would change their minds this time and ring currently. you know just a couple of weeks ago shareholders with approximately thirty billion dollars of assets under management wrote to chevron. demanding that chevron not do business with governments engage in genocide or crimes against humanity right now working with shareholders in other will companies in burma and also shareholders in these jury retailers and these companies listen to their shareholders they also listen to their customers as well and you know we expect that more and more people will be demanding the jewelry retail is not even stuck in the gym is made in burma and we're also going to be researching the business
2:22 am
interests of the burmese army has and use that as a way of putting pressure on the army to end this abuse and then this ethnic cleansing some of them this executive director of the international campaign for the hinges thank you very much. they are calling themselves the silent majority and they've been out in force in barcelona in spain catalonia region hundreds of thousands of people have traveled from all of the country to make their call for unity exactly one week after catalonia secession vote the referendum has plunged spain into political crisis and is jonah hollow reports both sides are only hardening their positions. barcelona has seen plenty of huge demonstrations but not like this one will see red light yellow the confluence and young lions alongside the spanish national flag region gripped by calls for independence this is a highly unusual show of national unity. some have
2:23 am
come from other parts of spain but most are from catalonia itself tony rolled down his accomplice and politician opposed to independence we have me proud the best to be here the first very young these. last forty years in the city because he was when it was over and we have money is to build the framework that works for everyone i think that the future belongs to you know i just think that we need to do better from the national brain which will govern ourselves in the world the politician doesn't make sense well but they call themselves the silent majority was their son or representative has the right choices don't feel good about silent noble and so on if they. haven't yet you see how. one woman described an atmosphere of hostility towards those who disagree with the push for independence day psycho highway as if my spanish. is
2:24 am
what i am. that there was a. right to fight them that had. my. morning rights. and given the opportunity to speak out many embraced it really tired of being the majority and the people to say that we are not we are the majority because the union has a force and come on he says common sense independent schools in this region with its distinct culture and language a centuries old with the stakes of never been higher in the dritte. minister mariano rajoy warns he may use special powers to revoke catalonia tanami the regional government meanwhile is considering a unilateral declaration of independence in the weeks to come but who will follow them these people seem to have found their voices jonah al-jazeera barcelona

the a.d.f. or ugandan rebel group for their to those rights groups or researches to this it is not the i.d.f. there are various different players involved including some factions of the army itself but that's something that the army denies this is one of several conflicts in congo that at the moment is seemingly getting worse conflicts are escalating in several parts of the country and that follows presidential elections that were meant to happen in december last year not happening the electoral commission says that because it couldn't afford them it didn't have the resources oppositions say it's because president joseph kabila is trying to stay on in power in the international community have expressed concern that the lack of a democratic process could lead to a worse and state of conflict across the country possibly bring it back to the kind of level of conflict that was seen here in the late ninety's and early two thousand . fighting in the democratic republic of congo has forced hundreds of thousands of

2:41 am
shooting came from all over the country and as far away as canada that's made this memorial on the vegas strip a popular spot not only for locals but also tourists hoping to pay their respects. a few planned and executed this act of what we can only describe as pure evil local residents took solace at church services and tried to make sense of it all those who experienced the chaos of that night now say they feel lucky to be alive were literally watching it on t.v. and not even ten minutes later you see people running through the casinos like a stampede of animals screaming trampling each other pushing it was surreal never been through anything like it with. they came together to play as well as pray the university of nevada football game began with a tribute and special recognition for first responders. the.

jones sang the national anthem at the game just as she did at the concert the night of the shooting its takeaway if anyone lost anyone is that they were having fun they were loving our country and they blessed us that night. and. the city scarred but determined to stay strong christian salumi al-jazeera las vegas nevada. countries across latin america have been marking the fiftieth anniversary of the death of. several thousand people have attended the ceremony in the cuban city of santa clara to remember the revolutionary fighter votto became known for his role in the cuban revolution of one thousand nine hundred fifty nine fighting alongside fidel and raul castro this year newman takes a look at his legacy. perhaps no revolutionary has been as romanticized as an install divider or chair as he was known. the arjen time born dr who fought by the del castro side played
2:43 am
a key role in the cuban revolution he then tried to launch marxist uprisings in the congo and then bolivia where he was captured and executed the images taken after his death in which many say he looked like christ only added to his legend as a left wing martyr. the oscar winning film motorcycle diaries was based on his early years. when he was fourteen harry yes joined chair in the fight for revolution in the cuban mountains for the next twelve years he never left his side until he miraculously managed to escape capture during chase final battle against the bolivian army. we had behind bushes and on a small radio we heard the news the cherry had been captured and killed the wings of our hearts found the yes' says the cheers reputation as a tough but just revolutionary who practiced what he preached was well earned. he felt because he had more education and thus he had
2:44 am
a great obligations to set the example and always lead by example he never cut himself a break so that he could demand the best from us. today to give out his image has become immortalized especially in cuba some would probably say too much or has become the ultimate revolutionary i call and i must have all the tourists that come to this island his face is absolutely everywhere from these bags to t. shirts as you can see to knapsacks everything you can possibly imagine the kind of image that you give out to himself would probably not have approved of. but he would surely have been proud to know that for the last fifty years cuban schoolchildren have been taught to follow his example every morning and every day they recite this chant. it means pioneers for communism we shall be like. to do the new generations of cubans really believe that we consulted a group we found trying to access
2:45 am
a wife i signal next to an internet cafe for me it's like a poem that you memorize but you don't act on it very few people actually follow and chase footsteps we all think differently today jay's marxist version of revolution is considered by most as an anachronism yet the consensus here seems to be the chair represents an ideal a selfless rebel unlike so many others did not live to betray his principles and it's that image of che that has never aged you see in human. than john lee anderson is author of the book revolutionary life he says the revolutionary remains the symbol of rebellion around the world. he would probably roll over it is a grave at some of the more consumer pop fetishism associated with him but on the other hand see the interest in him as an emblem of defiance against the status quo
2:46 am
