among the new raf it is but food is a major challenge for nearly every refugee is buying those government international agencies are doing their best to provide their basic needs at current times the chinese president's name and ideology have been added to the constitution cementing his status as one of the most powerful leaders in decades and i asked what was made on the final day of the communist party conference she thought follows in the footsteps of the former leader is said to him than done shopping she's described his concept to central to making china a quote great socialist country like twenty fifty. the chinese people in the chinese nation embrace brilliant prospects and a bright future living in such a great era we are all the more confident and proud and also feel the heavy weight of responsibility upon us we must have the courage and resolve to build on the
historic achievements made by the chinese people under the leadership of the chinese communists generation after generation and create new accomplishments befitting of this great stride forward to an ever promising future and are thomas now with more from beijing. after their weeklong congress these are the members of the communist party pouring out of the great hall of the people behind me and getting on to buses and to go back and spread the message over china what is that message that's come out of this congress well first and foremost that president xi is an absolute control of his party not only is his name going to be in shrine into the communist party's constitution that was confirmed on tuesday his thoughts will be part of the constitution he's also standards authority on the personnel in the party there was a seventy percent turnover in the membership of the central committee of the communist party of four hundred members of that the overwhelming majority of the
new appointees officially elected but appointees they are supporters on wednesday will find out the membership of the important politburo and the seven member standing committee that politburo again we can expect to see she supporters dominate. the next five years will be absolutely he is new era as he calls it. now there's been more fighting between kurdish peshmerga and iraqi government forces near a key oil pipeline in the north the town of bor is close to iraq's borders with syria and turkey commanders say they stopped government troops advancing towards the south of the town stuff deca has more now from erbil. this is a. significant area it is along the border with syria the fighting took place around america of mahmoudiya it is tense this is an area around forty kilometers south of the fish border crossing the border crossing with iraq and syria lies of
a strategic location because it's very close to also turkey so you have turkey iraq and syria another important element to that area is the oil pipelines that run through there particularly the akercocke sand pipeline that runs to turkey so this is something i think is significant to watch right now what you have is the kurds wanting to saying that they agreed on a deal to go back to positions they held before two thousand and fourteen that is of course when the fight against isis started what's interesting is that the u.s. secretary of state rex tillerson said the same thing just two days ago that this was all about taking positions that were held by both sides just before the fight against isis started with the iraqis seem to want is to return to territory held all the way back to nineteen ninety one when the blue line was imposed this is a no fly zone having to do with the gulf war preventing the kurds from being attacked by saddam hussein it is complicated but it's all about who controls what territory and now that all forces have sort of stopped fighting isis that quantum
common enemy is gone they're now starting to turn their guns on each other and of course trying to get crucial and significant territory america's most senior general says he believes a group linked to was behind the ambush that killed eight soldiers in new jab he warned that i still is trying to establish a presence that as it loses ground in iraq and syria meanwhile the widow of one of the four american soldiers who died in the attack has made a t.v. appearance she accused president donald trump of being insensitive during a come dolan's phone call. as the story. the united states' top military officer said the families of soldiers killed in a chair deserve answers four american soldiers and four from nizkor were killed during a brazen ambush while on what was supposed to be a routine reconnaissance patrol few details are known a done forward said all sides are pointing to one group that is an isis affiliated group and i think what you bring up is what we're dealing with in many places is
isis and al qaeda isis in this case they try to leverage local insurgencies. and connect those local insurgencies globally this is the challenge that we're dealing with the incident took place in a remote area of new jersey border with mali the region which also includes the neighboring countries of chad mauritania and booking a faso is facing an ongoing challenge against armed groups to help with this fight the u.s. has about one thousand troops uneasy there up from one hundred in two thousand and thirteen they mostly share intelligence and help trained local forces the incident in asia has caused political ramifications as well the widow of sergeant johnson's that president from was insensitive when he called to offer condolences to president. he found for body hers anyway. and now was it made me cry because i was very angry at the tone of his voice and
how he said he couldn't remember my herd's when a something the president disputes he wrote i had a very respectful conversation with the widow of sergeant david johnson and spoke his name from beginning without hesitation now the pentagon has come under increased criticism from prominent lawmakers over the deaths of the u.s. soldiers and overall transparency of u.s. operations in asia where this is an endless war without band boundaries no limitations on the geography you got to tell us more currently the u.s. has about six thousand troops in africa the killings of soldiers and has prompted the pentagon to begin a full review of how the military conducts his joint missions in the continent. on al-jazeera. lots more still to come here on al-jazeera a failing grade from the u.n. as it assesses the state of education around the world plus. tension between absolute you know spain central government splits a border town in half. hello

leaders has said she will not take her seat alongside her colleagues we should say her former colleagues the f.t. is in opposition because nobody else will work with it also an opposition on the social democrats with one hundred fifty more than one hundred fifty seats and the left party of former communists mostly well they have sixty nine seats they're in opposition to form a government. you have to have three hundred fifty five seats in parliament and the only option of coalition that analysts say might work is one which involves angela merkel's christian democrats with more than two hundred forty seats still the largest party in parliament even though they lost many seats at the election were also there would be the free democrats or liberals with eighty seats and the green party with sixty seven seats but can those three parties thrash out their differences and find in agreement they're trying to do that the talks they're holding right now in this building just across the street from parliament they're
