and syria they promise to fight to the death. and tragedy involving refugees fleeing two people dead several of those missing. and finding their voice majority speak out against a break from spain. we begin with a 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 move came shortly after the u.s. announced it would stop issuing all but immigrant visas at its diplomatic missions and turkey both countries thought of security concerns around the embassies and consulates and claim the measures were necessary to cut the number of people coming
in and out of the buildings let's get more on this now we're joined by cost pondered on estabrook she's live for us in washington d.c. what's going on di and what's led to this. well it was a bit strange that developed of doing the the u.s. and turkey as far back as the obama administration and then late last week there was an employee at the u.s. consulate in turkey who was arrested for allegedly spying now the u.s. says that was not the case that the this was this did not happen and that is what launched this war over visas. i are the first volley in the diplomatic dispute on sunday issuing a statement saying turks can't come to the us unless they are moving here by the end of the day the turkish embassy responded in kind to the u.s. the visa suspension war started just days after turkish authorities arrested
a us consulate employee met in tokyo claiming topas was fine for an exiled turkish cleric the u.s. says those accusations are baseless oh look i was a look are retired and basswood her and former principal representative to the european union says the u.s. is sending a clear and deliberate message. or already there warning that. you know the. whole what's going. to go are you talking to the press the exiled cleric vettel of google and has been a bone of contention between the u.s. and turkey for nearly two decades turkish president heir to want claims masterminded last year's bloody military coup attempt from his compound in the u.s. state of pennsylvania he's been pressuring the u.s. to extradite the cleric goole and has repeatedly said the claims are baseless
following the failed coup attempt former vice president joseph biden traveled to turkey to reaffirm friendly ties with the nation president donald trump did the same thing when air to one visited washington last spring turkey remains a valuable nato ally is home to the incirlik air base a strategic military tool in the us war against eisel so what happens now and why is there any easy way for either side to back down here. well that remains to be seen i mean as it stands right now the u.s. is limiting only those people in turkey coming from turkey so if you're a turk and you're living someplace else in another country you can still come here if you have a valid visa you can come here but the this sanctions or that the limits that turkey is placing on the u.s. is a lot broader even for people who have valid visas so. it remains to be seen what will happen but. within that you know we would expect within the next week maybe
something diplomatically can be worked out between the two countries they are nato allies and you know they have this very important air base nato air base in turkey which is important to the u.s. all right dan thank you very much for that stan estabrook joining us live from washington d.c. well alternators chief editor of the turkish language news site washington hati he says the tension is going to make things difficult for turkey. when you start talking about the problems between the two countries and when you cannot stop anywhere there are so many issues this point are very much in uncharted territory as far as we can though there is there is we have not seen such suspension of visas big being the countries and the turkey also suspense is really the u.s. government there is kind of
a chicken game between the capitals but the same time does to a allies not 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 town sure and this going of fights between the capitals i think going to escalate and going to make it turkey which is already isolated in the neighborhood. will make things very much much more difficult for our own corrupt. let's move on to other news now and an armed coalition led by fighters once linked to al qaida is promising a fierce fight against those who enter its territory and syria's province hired for responding to an offensive by the free syrian army or f.s.a. turkey is backing the operation from its side of the border forces have opened fire from their. reports from gaza near the turkish syrian border.
turkish artillery shelling. positions inside syria. the former al qaeda affiliate group controls 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. the starting point for the new cross border campaign. but 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 back by 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 here 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 that are on the border with jordan and northern parts of helms. 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 prominence and what will become moderate opposition factions. and of the thousands of civilians living in the area. at least two people have drowned after about capsized as it was carrying the hanger refugees from myanmar to bangor they. talk about it is kept people started fleeing violence in. august more than sixty people drowned when two boats capsized last month. following developments and cocks and. this boat carrying a hindu refugees saying close to shop loaded with on the southern tip of bangladesh it really speaks to the magnitude of this refugee crisis despite the dangers of trying to cross the now river more and more of these boats are still trying to cross now this is just the latest incident we're told that some survivors have been
found but many are still missing in that many of those still missing are children so there's a lot of concern that the death toll will may may go up in the hours ahead now in september there were at least two incidents in which boat sank or hinder refugee that were trying to cross from me and mark into bangladesh and again this really goes to show these people are so desperate fleeing for their lives trying to get to bangladesh despite the dangers now the u.n. h.c.r. has said that there's really no end in sight to this crisis and that's why there's so much concern right now you have over half a million people crossed for me and more into bangladesh just in the last six weeks it looks as though that flow that flow of people that exodus won't stop anytime soon these makeshift camps that they are going to they are overcrowded the conditions are on hygenic unsanitary there is not enough aid that is why there is a lot also still so much concern that epidemics could break out and diseases could
spread in the meantime the u.n. aid workers humanitarian organizations trying to get the international community to respond more vigorously to this crisis which they do which they do not believe will get any better any time soon. well simon barrenness as executive director at the international campaign for the henkka he says there must be more pressure on young muslim men to train to end the atrocities. but as denials mean nothing the evidence is right 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 can 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 his business interests and
that's where they'll listen to 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 oil companies in burma and also shareholders in the jury retailers and these companies listen to their shareholders but they also listen to their customers as well and you know we expect that more and more people will be demanding the jury retail is not even stock any germs made in burma and we're also going to be researching other business 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. now they're calling themselves the silent majority and the bait out in
force and boss a lot of spain's caution on your age and hundreds of thousands of people travel travel all over the country to make their call for unity exactly one week oxycontin knowing your secession vote the referendum has plunged spade into political crisis that is john holl reports both sides are already hardening their positions. boston has seen plenty of huge difference. grayson's 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 fine young usual show of national unity. some have 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 will be here the first very young days. of the last forty years in a city because he was when it was over and we have monies to build the framework
that works for everyone i think that the future belongs to you i just think that we need to do better from national language to govern ourselves in the world the vision doesn't make sense to hold but they call themselves the silent majority was there so no representative has the right choices not being heard well silent noble and so on if they. have you know you have one moment described an atmosphere of hostility towards those who disagree with the push for independence days ago i was in my spanish. is what. i like. 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 weird the majority because the union has a force and come on he's common sense independent schools in this region with its distinct culture and language a centuries old but the stakes of never been higher in the dritte prime minister mariano rajoy warns he may use special powers to revoke catalonian. the regional government meanwhile is considering a. declaration of independence. but. these people seem to have their voices. in which fifty eight people were killed at a country music. the probably with the best of the regular blood below. the city.
