5:04 pm
a collision course with the syrian military which is moving from the south to word . and the syrian army is saying that it definitely is it is definitely keen on taking over all the territory it lost whether to the rebels or to. the kurds to a certain extent tough control of most of this area how should they will speak about those eisel fighters at bay have escaped all splinter groups that might have crossed into different parts of the country if they haven't already focus their attention on. what we know so far so good is that it was definitely a few days ago between tribesman and i said fighters which paved the way for some of those fighters particular the syrians to hand over themselves to the to the kurds and they say that they will be interrogated about them they will be allowed to stay and live in iraq however we don't know about what happened to the foreign
5:05 pm
fighters or at a certain stage said that they won't leave and they want to fight to the death but we do understand that some of those firefighters manage to leave. during the last forty eight hours where have the gun we don't know what i mean for them if you look at the map there's absolutely no way for them to move east north or west the only. logic course for them is to move south towards their goals always has the. wishes i says last remaining stronghold the international led coalition has been saying that it won't allow for any freeze passage of the foreign fighters because it was concerned it would further resurface in other areas and start launching attacks against different groups well for the better we'll leave it there how should thanks for the update. takes a look back at isolates fight for iraq. the capture of rockabye i saw in two thousand and fourteen was hailed by the armed group as a major achievement back then i still said it demonstrated its strength as it
5:06 pm
continued to expand across syria and iraq it declared its capital in syria setting up courts prisons and other institutions but all of this was against the will of the people i saw as emergence in the cartels a huge blow to the syrian opposition and a free syrian army who had previously controlled the area their fighters were forced to retreat and president bashar assad was able to validate his claim that his troops were fighting what you call terrorists and not legitimate opposition in turn an international coalition was formed to fight the group led by the united states and in coordination with russia whose forces had been sent into syria to help prop up the flailing regime the coalition and russia launched hundreds of air strikes in a bid to defeat eisel but many civilians were killed in the process on the ground the offensive to expel eisel from iraq i was being led by the y.p. g a kurdish faction supported and armed by washington while they managed to make large advances that true was at the expense of the syrian opposition who accuse the
5:07 pm
group of expelling the indigenous arab residents in order to pave the way for future kurdish states. why p.g. has links with the kurdistan workers party or p k k n armed group in truckee which i care considers to be a terrorist organization some editor analysts believe that despite the y.p. g.'s success in expelling eisel from iraq the group will not be able to achieve its goal of autonomy and see that the kurds and the y p g definitely overstretched could buy an area that they constitute a minority of twenty five to thirty percent compared to seventy percent now that i saw has been pushed out from the many will declare the end of the armed group but others disagree we are witnessing the fall of the. but that doesn't mean i will be destroyed. remain purcell's in
5:08 pm
syria and lebanon i saw is not an ordinary group its methods are both horrifying and unconventional it doesn't have a membership process for example anybody who wants to kill or maim can do so and then attribute those attacks to the group and that's what makes defeating i saw seem so impossible now whilst expanding its members from iraq is significant the region need to deal with the root causes that push young men to join such a group. well kurdish forces in syria they be celebrating but over the border in iraq they suffered major territorial losses the push mirka have pulled out of several tiled the face of advance by iraqi troops the territory includes should just back war where. the child's were seized by kurdish forces in recent years after defeating eisel that are the control of iraqi shia militias government troops have also taken over all of the oil fields near kirkuk iraqi forces moved

5:10 pm
also saying that it is going to involve foreign companies that are going to be very much involved in trying to boost this output we've heard in the immediate wake of the referendum plans by the iraqi government to open up an old pipeline to reopen a pipeline that was damaged by eisel that would circumvent kurdish the kurdish region of northern iraq so the oil could get out to turkey but these statements from the oil ministry today as i say an indication of just how important the oil is and how will how keen the iraqi government to capitalize on a gains around the oil rich city of kirkuk. the taliban says it's responsible for a suicide bomb attack that killed thirty two people at a police training said to in afghanistan's put. a call to the expenses was detonated outside the compound he was followed by a gun battle between authorities out the attackers at least one hundred ball were

5:18 pm
the international community harry. no all those who are looking for a two state solution between israel and the palestinians for them this is just more cementing of the key problem literally cementing in the settlement issue the illegal israeli settlement issue this is a two day process this meeting of the relevant committee which hands out the approvals for such plans at the end of the first day we have news that one thousand two hundred and ninety two housing units have been approved for construction or at some stage of the approval process for construction on top of that two hundred ninety six permits or other tenders have been approved fragile construction at the settlement the illegal israeli settlement behind me here in the occupied west bank the settlement of beit il so this does suggest an acceleration in the settlement process some things have changed of course we have
5:19 pm
a new president in the white house one which many on the israeli right especially the pros settler lobby were hoping would really take the brakes off as far as the relationship between united states and israel is concerned the prime minister benjamin netanyahu has been trying to make the most of this recently saying that those single israeli settler would have to come out of the west bank in the future that no settlements would ever be uprooted in the future however there are those among the processor lobby who are critical of this saying that this is recycling of past numbers and past announcements they want to see the process accelerated still more that this doesn't even account for the natural growth they say of israeli settlements in the west bank of course from the palestinian perspective this is a worsening of the situation and an already fairly brink plus prospects for peace negotiations looks bleaker after this first half of what we're expecting is
5:20 pm
a two day series of announcements over there will leave it there without a. situation develops how we thank you. no u.s. military plane has loaded somalia's capital mogadishu carrying medical word humanitarian aid is the latest it did arsenal response to saturday's bob the worst in the country's history more than three hundred people were killed and hundreds more injured where they struck bob ripped through the heart of the city thirty five seriously injured victims have been flowed to turkey for treatment but here's the latest from these the capital mogadishu. what happened on saturday one of the busiest streets of mogadishu is been seen in these countries and all blame is pointing out they are the only group of things been carrying out the talks like this one loading trucks with explosives targeting government as well as. their targets so many people here have absolutely no doubt
5:21 pm
about themselves and. this is a nation still in mourning this is the. final day of a period of mourning declared by president mohammed of the life of a madrassa soon. many people dealing with the mock mission of looking for any survivors as well as the bullies of the people who are still under the rubble of buildings collapsed buildings within some buildings within two. kilometers radius of the collapsed and it is a huge task rescue workers are looking for the bodies as well as survivors they were really encouraged yesterday late in the evening when they found a survivor will seriously injured under the rubble of the one of the buildings collapsed so. the people are still in shock but immediately the mourning period is over with many questions some of them very difficult and one the
5:22 pm
government will be facing would be the question why is it unable to stop such kind of attacks. the. refugees who fled. to five hundred eighty two thousand it's really strange video to highlight the scale of the. bus exodus. to. state that has described the situation as ethnic cleansing the choudhry has been for us from coaxes bazaar the bangladeshi be a border. the u.n. a.t.r. aerial footage shows a large number of refugees on the other side of bother trying to cross into bangladesh now this is corroborated by our soldiers on the other side as well as bangladesh border god on monday at least fifteen ten to fifteen thousand refugees
5:23 pm
crossed over into bangladesh and shop where they bury and along all their land boundary area influx is continuous maybe not in staggering numbers sometimes but on average two to four thousand people crosses into bangladesh the fibrillation on the other side in myanmar is still very active and volatile what we hear from the refugees talking to them families and other members is that they are very scared to get out of the house that is no food at all the put shops are closed there's no aid agency distributing any kind of food specially in western russia there are kind stayed rather and they're trying to cross into buying that there's this take shelter in quite a steady hour filtered island in the not very bar and wait for the optimum moment to cross into bangladesh on the other side the bank of this government is not planning to set up a huge refugee camp which is supposed to accommodate up to eight hundred thousand people that is a staggering number of people in one refugee camp how they're going to manage this is a question yet to be seen this is a larger than the population of washington d.c.
5:24 pm
city one reason the government is trying to do that is that on one the royal refugees to scattered across bangor that they want to confine them in one area so they can have a better planning of distribution of relate aid and other emergency aid into one particular camp but most of this camp around the rule of shanty town to accommodate that many people in one concentrated area is a clear danger of spreading of infectious disease and also a very uncomfortable and i think many in a small concentrated area in one particular place this situation remains volatile and active in both side of the border as up now. to the u.s. where the n.f.l. t. voters will beat players and league officials of the next two days to try to fix some of the big issues plaguing america's popular sport. what to do about players protesting the national as well kristie. of course problems facing the n.f.l.
5:25 pm
it's a really big decisions to be buried. absolutely nothing has been consuming the n.f.l. like this controversy over kneeling during the national anthem it all started last year when san francisco forty nine ers quarterback collin cabernets decided to sit and then neil during the national anthem in protest of police brutality and the mistreatment of minors in this country an issue that has been burning in minority communities here other players later followed suit it's really divided teams it's divided coaches players and owners and fans in particular it's become a national controversy even with the president weighing in so the n.f.l. is hoping to put that behind them today when they meet at the hotel behind me later in the day the commissioner of the league roger goodell has said he wants players to stand during the national anthem many people see it as a sign of respect for the country and the league has been getting a lot of complaints from fans returned merchandise and the like but the
5:26 pm
commissioner says that he also wants to support players and their yearning for social justice in the issues that they care about so it seems like a compromise may be in the works where the league does something to support the programs and legislation that might help move these issues that are important to the players forward the players have been trying to come up with a similar sort of plan on their own since august this will be the first time that the league is officially getting together with the players and their representatives to discuss this but it's really a thorny issue right now there's no rule requiring the players to stand during the national anthem will that change will. the league try to impose a rule what if the player standing raise if this what if the teams say in the locker room during the national anthem all of these things are being discussed as possibilities and there's a lot of people with differing opinions that have to come to an agreement but either one of those people with that opinion is the president himself is you quite vocal of the subject but it sort of softened his stance in the last few i was.
5:27 pm
absolutely at the beginning of the season president trump weighed in and said that the leader should be firing players who stand during the national anthem. this actually prompted more players to protest and neil and other teams linked arms in a show of solidarity but it really high in the debate and got more of the fans fired up as well the president did soften his tone yesterday but only very slightly have a listen to what he said when you go down and take a needy or any other way you're sitting the sensually for great national anthem you're disrespecting our flag and you're disrespecting our country and the n.f.l. should have suspended some of these players for one game. not fire suspended for one game and then if they did it again it could have been two games in three games and then for the season you wouldn't have people disrespecting our country right now. so now the president saying players should be suspended not fired for nailing
5:28 pm
during the national anthem but still say you know a strong position one person that won't be at this meeting today is the quarterback collin copernic calling copper nickel started this whole controversy he has not been hired for a new role he's out of work no teams have been willing to pick them up and on monday he filed a complaint with the league saying that it was colluding against him to keep him out of football as a result of his taking the need during the national anthem. to crist of course through the day we get a divorce the n.f.l. has to say. well women who quit that job to have children to look after elderly relatives often find it almost impossible to get back into the workplace but i do both a little. bit brigade the professional life that just a couple of reports. constructing a super sewer to meet the demands of
5:29 pm
a growing with us. tideway is building the twenty four kilometer tunnel it's also building up its workforce of women with internships designed for women who've taken career breaks henry had to give particular time off to raise three children she wanted to go back but with a gaping hole in her c.v. companies weren't interested so she applied for a high level paid internship i felt quite confident when i saw. my goodness what am i doing i do. these questions so i think that's a natural way to feel probably when you're suddenly back in that situation the internship now a full time job was organized by women return they found many women needed support to get out of the house and into the office there is an erosion of self confidence and self belief that happens when you lose that professional identity and also just as importantly it's for a challenging to get in through the door and organization because if you send to
5:30 pm
sci fi in three traditional grades you tend to be dismissed as a risky candidate you go to the bottom of the pile the majority of internships become full time jobs but two thirds of them could be working below their potential even so it is creating a pipeline of experienced women is a game changer because we will never stop having people who take career breaks with me this is something that should happen in every organization every year across the country and it makes economic sense the impact on the u.k. economy of women being out of the workforce is estimated at more than two billion dollars a year. returning programs come at a perfect time careers are getting longer so makes sense to go back to work companies it could be the solution to a problem for twenty years we've talked about diversity getting women into management positions and nothing seems to happen. companies now have access to
