a final push to drive eisel from the group's self-proclaimed capital rock the u.s. led coalition says one hundred iso fighters of surrender to. the past day foreign fighters not being allowed to leave fighting to recapture the city began in june the armed group has now been confined to a small area and this is we go straight to who's following developments from pattaya near the turkey syria border first of all let's not forget the civilians trapped in the rocket what is becoming of them. so it's a very difficult situation thousands of people have been caught in the fighting in different parts of the country and. those who managed to flee themselves and. conditioners those who couldn't flee or stay at home were not safer to. have killed hundreds of people in different parts of the country so
we're talking about a very delicate situation for thousands of civilians face now in the eastern part of the country. and there's been clashes now breaking in take us through what's going on since the turkish operation there. so maybe just update you on a new development which is basically now the syrian army saying very you have. this city or by the mayor dean in duels of this is a major development is also a major setback for the i.c. of fighters in is this because the moment they started losing ground. they started moving pulling our troops routing south to words. but now the syrian army has been besieged. hundreds of fighters have moved. there they have lost their mayor the others porter to how to word the city of all the
border with iraq so we're talking about i say losing significant ground in the eastern part of the country now as far as the quiet in the northern part of the country the syrian the turkish military is positioned in areas. particularly in what is starting now to implement those surveillance. there's a presence of the free syrian army and also to have u.s. fighters but the potential for a confrontation pitting the turkish military against the kurds is very high kurdish factions particularly. significant presence on those areas of the turkish military has been saying that it would never allow those fighters to further expand in their west western part of the country so all in all certainly we're talking about a very changing reality on the ground turkish military moving towards the city but at the same time civilians in the eastern part of syria face more uncertainty.
civilians have been waiting for years they are being evacuated from fighting in iraq staying home wasn't safe strikes have killed hundreds. in neighboring dales or thousands of syrians flee their homes as fighting intensifies i still fighters have regrouped in a mayor dean a city on the border with iraq before an expected push by syrian kurdish factions known as the s.d.f. took up each other city. north of rock was built to accommodate the internally displaced it's struggling with a growing number of refugees who have nowhere to go such as. well has just arrived from the us. we left home because of the farting in there

advances the syrian army is on the move both competing to control more territory the syrian government is determined to recapture areas it lost or i sell the rebels and the kurds a confrontation between the kurds and the syrian army may trigger an exodus of thousands of people towards the border with turkey has. the time. to be a worldwide criticism of a decision by the us president to decertify a deal on iran's nuclear program don trump says tehran hasn't lived up to the two thousand and fifteen agreement which restricts iran's nuclear activities in exchange for the lifting of sanctions iran's president hassan rouhani has responded to trump speech he called it a pile of delusional allegations and the leaders of france germany and britain are warning the u.s. against undermining the accord well in
a moment we'll have more reaction from there on but first here's our report by white house correspondent kimberly hulk it he's often threatened to tear out the landmark deal with iran but in the end u.s. president donald trump stopped short of pulling out of the twenty fifteen agreement to limit its nuclear program for now and even though his own administration has twice certify that iran is complying with the deal he now says he won't do it again i am announcing today that we cannot and will not make this certification. we will not continue down a path whose predictable conclusion is more violence more terror and the very real threat of iran's nuclear breakout that is why i am directing my administration to work closely with congress for months trump has accused his
predecessor barack obama of being myopic in negotiations with iran focusing only on iran's nuclear program but not the financing of groups trump says are causing instability in the region the president has directed the u.s. congress to potentially revamp u.s. law to set up tough new standards. if iran by a late arbitrary trigger point lifted sanctions could be put back in place senate republicans are already drafting legislation supported by top democrats who have always viewed the twenty fifteen deal as somewhat imperfect we're saying if they're not in compliance we're all with together on this where am the administration also has its sights on another ronnie and target the country's revolutionary guard new u.s. treasury sections are being imposed which donald trump says are long overdue critics say these actions put international relations at risk and could spell the end of
the deal painstakingly negotiated over more than a decade this deal was working it was delivering the iranians were living up to it the i.a.e.a. certified eight times in iran was at hearing today a deal trump took a perfectly working deal and transformed it into a crisis with the decision that he made today donald trump has shifted u.s. iran policy and he's not entirely ruling out withdrawing from the agreement altogether i make sure that the deal is terrible but for all his tough talk against iran donald trump has for now taken little action ceding that responsibility to the u.s. congress to. take the next steps or not at all kimberly help al jazeera washington iran's president is insisting his country will remain committed to the nuclear deal as long as it's in an attack iran's interest to do so hassan rowhani added trump speech was full of insults and fake accusations from one is. are you worried about
iranian missiles what about those weapons you give every day to aggressor countries i know targeting of the oppressed people of yemen with planes and bombs that you built yourself you don't have any protest about those weapons and that aggression and you targeted our oil platforms you are always the aggressor in this region our weapons our missiles of defending ourselves we have always been determined and today we are more determined to defend ourselves. i mean mark government minister responsible for patrick ating rangar refugees from bangladesh tells al-jazeera they may have planned their exodus to give the appearance of ethnic cleansing more than half a million refugees have fled across the border after a military crackdown in iraq and state. has more from young on. it was meant to be an interview about repatriating the hindu refugees but then the minister
responsible for their way settlements said this now that i've got my fling with the groups they can make the accusation that this is ethnic cleansing maybe they systematically playing for that reason i'm saying it could be that i don't know it could be. they may have been planning for that they may be planning for that to make it come under the definition of ethnic cleansing ethnic cleansing is the description used by the united nations for the military campaign which has seen more than half a million or a hundred refugees escape to bangladesh since late august un's latest report details indiscriminate killings rape and the burning of homes by security forces in a campaign designed to expel the rohingya and prevent their return a commission set up by unk sons who cheat or find solutions to the underlying causes of the wreck and conflict has just break the un security council and called for the safe return of their hinge or they can it will only go back if they have a sense of security and confidence that their lives will be better and we in their
recommendation indicated that they should not be put in comes they should be allowed to go back to the have relations and they should be helped to rebuild and reconstruct government leaders in mainmast say they'll meet with their bangladeshi counterparts at the end of the month to begin a process to repatriate at least one hundred raheja a day whose identities match mean mark government records we have i didn't find those who are correct and then sent back to their homes the homes not so we were rebuilt by them so they have to live in the temporary camp nationalist sentiment runs high this rally in young gone organized by buddhists with right wing views is calling for their him to stay out or is live in yangon for us so you are a face of it sounds like he's saying that i have managed to for all of this the un
all the international human rights organizations that documented what they call ethnic cleansing was the un had to say about that. well we've yet to hear really from the u.n. about these claims are still waiting to hear from them there the un's political chief is currently in the young gone he's here for the next few days to discuss the ro hinder crisis but i think it's really important to point out here that when the minister made these claims that. somehow all got together and planned to leave on mass to create the appearance of ethnic cleansing that he didn't really have much evidence to back up his claim except to say that the military operations ended on the fifth of september now this is an assertion that's also been previously made by the chief but the un maintains that the conflict in rank. is ongoing
and it's calling for an immediate end to military and security forces operations there i think as was talking about the breaux hinge or planned exodus or planned. appearance of ethnic cleansing the minister also went on to say that the un is unlikely to get access to rack and state anytime soon to deliver humanitarian aid and he said that it this was because of a perception of bias from the buddhist community there on the un's part in favor of the rohingya community now these are all issues that the un's political chief jeffrey feltman and top men have said that he wants to be discussing while he's here in maine mum but given the government's position on these issues it's unlikely he's going to have much success while he's here or are you out of
a mole home there thanks for the. well it's more still to come on al-jazeera clothing what goes around comes around why these are the concrete buildings and not just what people want to be watching. one of the world's most isolated places until today good news for people on this remote island in the south atlantic. we've got quite a bit of rain a rich pan at the moment thanks to this wandering front that's edging its way towards the east and many of us in one choosing a lot of heavy rain currently more still to come over the next couple of days for the north well here with clear skies mostly looks like there's going to be a problem with frost over the next day you say towards the west and generally fine and dry for us here beijing getting to around eighteen degrees the temperatures
nicely dropping off before the towards the south you see plenty of clouds here and within this system is all tropical storm that's working its way steadily towards the west but as it does so is generating plenty of heavy rain across this whole region you can see the cloud extending all the way up towards the eastern parts of china taiwan seen the worst of the weather so far three hundred seventy seven millimeters of rain reported in the south eastern parts of taiwan and there's more wet weather still to come the system is only moving very slowly it looks like it's going to gradually work its way eventually making landfall for a second time in viet nam but it will take a good few days before it reaches us here so between now and then we've got a lot of heavy rain across this whole region including again for us in taiwan and for the eastern parts of china that sticks around for sunday and as we head into monday to.

terms with it. i believe no matter what happens the freedom of expression should not be controlled late last year it emerged then president park geun hye was operating a blacklist against artists she saw as hostile to her government a number of them in the film industry they religiously denied public funding and showing their work was discouraged. an investigation of the scandal has led to ministers and senior officials being prosecuted while parker's self is behind bars . the control of the arts was a historical regression least impacted the creative reel of the filmmakers and undermined artistic freedom. one of the highest profile victims was this documentary about the say well ferry tragedy that killed more than three hundred passengers most of them schoolchildren in twenty forty the film laid
a lot of the blame on government negligence supporters of president tried to stop the documentary being shown that here best of all when it was shown its place in the festival budget was the punishment leading some filmmakers to this event they say with government think the player. the festival has begun to recover helped by a new government in power and like any good plot the organizers see this as a life changing episode which makes it strong. like that at the festival or suffered difficulties but in overcoming them we can take pride from not succumbing to political oppression we have pulled the festival together and move forward i. hoping to emerge the hero and the happy ending mcbride al-jazeera busan south korea .
