. about this and this is all just a lie from doha also coming up the campaign to drive all qaeda linked fighters from it live in syria they promise to fight to the death. finding their voice catalonia is silent majority speak out against a break from spain. and remembering a memorial is across latin america fifty years after the death of a revolutionary i call. we're going to begin with that rapidly escalating diplomatic dispute between turkey and the u.s. in the past few hours has effectively barred most u.s. citizens from entering the country the moves come shortly after the us. us
announced it would stop issuing all but immigrant visas i did the diplomatic missions in turkey both countries cited security concerns around their embassies and consulates and claimed the measures were necessary to cut the numbers of people coming in and out of the buildings for more now we can speak to diane estabrook in washington d.c. dime give us some of the background to this story first of all right and this is sort of a diplomatic battle if you will that's been going on throughout the day but it actually started last week when turkey arrested and detained a u.s. employee who works in the consulate there saying that he had ties to a cleric a turkish cleric who's been living in the u.s. who the turkish government says was behind last year's failed military coup and that is that cleric is federal and. turkey has been trying to get him extradited from the u.s. back to turkey now for quite a while the u.s.
has failed has not been compliant with that and the turkish government and it's difficult for them to do that if even if they would be agreeable to that it could be challenged in federal court so that's part of the reason that could be behind this employee that was arrested and held last week now in addition to that there are some a dozen other u.s. citizens who have been arrested and detained in turkey one includes a nasa scientist another is a christian missionary vice president mike pence and secretary of state rex tillerson have been trying to get that missionary freed without success so it's yet another volley has been has been filed over the last few days in this diplomatic snafu that's been escalating over the last couple of days and more recently all day sunday and turkey fired off its response to the u.s. action very quickly after the original that u.s.
statement and both statements seem very similar but there's going to be a lot of attention paid to the wording of these statements in the next in the coming days isn't there. that's right and when you look at the when you look at both statements that were issued they look very similar but there are differences that in the u.s. as it applies to turkey if you are in the bases if you're living in turkey you can't get a peace and come to the united states if you're a turk living in doha or some place some place else in europe you can still come if you have a valid beside you can still come but on the other hand in the turkish with the turkish pieces if you have a valid visa you can't come to turkey if you are an american citizen who wants to go there go to turkey as a guest as a visitor you can't come so there are differences between the two and actually turkey sort of up to the ante in this diplomatic war of words between these two countries dime for now thanks very much indeed. tom here is chief editor of the
turkish language news site washington hati he says the tension is going to make things difficult for turkey. when we start talking about the problem between the two countries and we cannot stop anywhere there are so many issues this point are very much in uncharted 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 source has spent it against the u.s. government there is kind of a chicken game between the capitals but that same time to a allies nutter allies and allies for about seventy years would call each other and strategic ally a verb 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 isolated in the neighborhood. will make things very much much more difficult for ankara and i'm coalition led by former al qaeda linked fighters is promising a fierce fight against those who enter its territory in syria's province high attacking al sham 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 their. reports this. turkish artillery shelling heya to hit a sham positions inside syria. the former al qaeda affiliated group controlled most of province 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 had area the starting point for the new border campaign. but the last show which has thousands of fighters is vowing to fight to the death news of the new campaign is raising concerns for civilians in there. if the turkish army enters backed by a russian planes that 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 anomie 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 of the province it is one of four deescalation zones the others are the asker's of the capital damascus or the border with jordan and northern parts of homes. where the zones what established after iran russia and turkey decided to set aside their 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. victor from the province and what will become of moderate opposition factions and the thousands of civilians living in the area. i mean mars military has been accused of carrying out atrocities against the. state
that charge is denied by the government mohamed room 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 iraq. despite the relief his family tries to provide eighteen year old ranger refugee mohammed 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 home and tied our hands behind our backs they pulled us along the roads and kicked as they pulled us through the village through the jungle and took us to join another group of people they made as 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 village and state on august twenty seventh mohammed al 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 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 me a mars military a textbook example of ethnic cleansing man or his government has categorically denied carrying out any atrocities against the rangers. or mohammad 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 latina i didn't take english when i see my son's williams i don't feel like going back to my village and also i set fire to a high and they say if i am everywhere we saw that and we had no choice but to leave they may have been able to leave the violence behind but for mohammed 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 later officials in bangladesh save a refugee camps are getting too crowded putting risk of disease the u.n. has brought in huge doses of a color a vaccine to prevent a possible outbreak the. nine point six million square meters of space which is equivalent to 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 based on our experiences that we have seen in the past in other such crises moments that when people are conscious tidiness such a place there is always this fiske of having color outbreak. calling themselves the silent majority manda been out in force in barcelona in the spanish region of

zine a last minute effort to win over voters their range from the flamboyant to the everyday person one thing they have in common though is that they stand on issues look and sound the same and this is forcing many voters to narrow their choices down to old allegiances of tribal region and personality. not. candidate development. and. many political observers believe that voters are not asking the right questions. which is really. democracy. is a product of the country's broken education system. she and her neighbor take turns

attended the ceremony in the city of santa clara to remember the revolutionary fighter this inurement takes a look at his legacy. perhaps no revolutionary has been as romanticized as a new still give or change as he was known the arjen time born doctor who fought by fidel castro side played 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 in the fight for revolution in the cuban mountains for the next twelve years he never left his side until he miraculously lose the chair he had been captured and killed the wings of our hearts found the yoga says the cheers reputation as
a tough but just revolutionary who practiced what he preached was well earned. he felt that because he had more education and thus he had a great obligations to set the example 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 a wife i signal next to an internet cafe for me it's like a poem that you memorized but you don't act on it very few people actually follow and chase footsteps we all think differently today chase 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 change that has never aged you see in human. than john lee anderson is author of the book revolutionary life and he says so remains the symbol of rebel rebellion around the world today. he would probably roll over it is a grave at some of the more consumer fetishism associated with him but on the other
hand. the interest in him as an emblem of defiance against the status quo as an opportunity to reinstill new generations with the ideal of revolution i think. you know it's still an unequal world that has remains an icon to to to in conformity and as i said useful idealism against the status quo around the world to this day is the ultimate of rebellion i think you know in a sense it's a bit like the jesus christ allegory or analogy you know. children are of our you know and americans once upon a time were brought up to revere george washington as this kind of the founding father of americans as is that the boy who would tell no lies and was somehow exemplified the purity of the american nation which you know you learn and you put
to one side but you retain this kind of mythological attachment to to this figure i think these are these are figures who provide a kind of. you know horizon line to societies that need them the idea of purity of purpose and that exemplifies moral values the idea the nobility of sacrifice and i'm reconciled legacy but nonetheless to look at one i think. this is all it is it of the things of the top stories turkey and the u.s. are involved in a rapidly escalating diplomatic dispute turkey says it won't process visas for u.s. citizens who want to travel there just a few hours before the u.s. announced it would stop issuing known immigrant visas at its embassy and consulates in turkey countries say they need to reassess. each other's commitment to embassy and consulate staff security a u.s.
