targeted by the regime and to save lives all they can do is dig tunnels and go underground. samaras on the operating table because his leg was injured in an airstrike but this is northern area operation theatre it's hidden underground so it can survive. i'm afraid when the regime targets a hospital i lost a member of my family in an airstrike. it's known as the cave hospital in northern syria doctors are keeping its location secret for fear of further attacks by government jets. they showed us photos after some of the hundred thirty five year strikes targeted their hospital medical facilities and medical workers nowadays are far from being working an ideal situation there are all sort of challenges one of the main challenges has to do with witnessing not only going for a long time but at the same time he doesn't. doesn't stop. this is what remains of

many hospitals above ground so it took months of digging five hundred square meters in the mountains to convert into frequent room workers then plaster the walls and bags at the entrance increased security. this is the doctor who began the project he was also killed in an airstrike last year and his colleagues continue to face challenges. the biggest problem is the airstrikes which target civilians this hospital is theoretically safe but we expect anything from the government and it's destructive weapons making the hospital safe is just one of the many challenges most hospitals in opposition areas suffer from a lack of medicine and other vital supplies that are to emergency exits in case of any attack being underground brings the constant challenge of maintaining the floor so doctors and patients don't suffocate. we face difficulties such as
12:08 pm
ventilation and shortages of medical supplies after securing ourselves in a cave inside a mountain because serious health care system has been largely destroyed by six years of war preventive care units and health centers are nonexistent potentially fatal diseases are common because of a lack of vaccine. healthcare is being used as a report of war in syria targeting hospitals means denial of treatment and the only option to save lives is going on the ground. zero. two planes carrying much needed humanitarian aid have landed in yemen's capital yemen is ensuring the world's worst cholera epidemic and now doctors are warning of an outbreak of the potentially fatal the feria virus a unicef plane that arrived at san airport was carrying vaccines for the ferry but there's been no movement at the major port of her day that the saudi led military alliance had promised to reopen aid routes on thursday. argentina's president is

vying to continue the search for missing submarine even as hopes fade for its forty four crew members on board the navy's confirmed there was an explosion near where the sub disappeared ten days ago then this one reports on the naval base in the city of mother plata. the hope the prayers the expectation expressed here at the model plotter naval base the home of the missing submarine the air race so one turned to anger and despair the families of the forty four crewmembers were told the face of their loved ones. but there are still people with hope but i think that's it it's time to look for the bodies they don't want to say it's which is why we feel impotent but there's nothing more to do but pray and lay them to rest. he loved his job was totally dedicated this was his last voyage i'm devastated. they want to know why news of an explosion on board shortly after the submarine
12:10 pm
lost contact on the van with the fifteen took so long to be revealed where they kept in the dark. the. president has promised a full inquiry and to answer the families and the rest of argentina. i'm here to guarantee that we will continue the search especially now that we can count on the help of the international community and the technology that they have available we hope to find a submarine in the next few days. the navy high command is likely to be removed and despite the frustration and sadness as it did terminations to keep searching. remember until we have firm evidence of where the submarine is we cannot reach any conclusions believe nothing to chance there's a strong force reaching the remaining uncovered area that operation involves ships aircraft and undersea rescue equipment from more than ten countries often in severe
12:11 pm
weather conditions while their families more in argentina is asking what went wrong who was responsible and what should happen now but with the sun one possibly several hundred meters at the bottom of the south atlantic ocean those questions may never be satisfactorily answered and argentina must assess his relationship with his navy as it comes to terms with one of its worst tragedies in recent years that i'm sure there are others here model blotter. bangladesh and me and mom have agreed to ask for u.n. assistance in the repatriation of hundreds of thousands of rangar rights groups have insisted on outside monitors to safeguard the return of the to me and but the un has expressed concern about the process repatriation is due to start in two months more than six hundred thousand rangar fade from violence in rakhine state to bangladesh. the return is will be taken to their original
12:12 pm
lands or wherever they want to live in the primary stages they will stay in temporary camps for the time being the two sides have agreed to complete the repatriation process in a reasonable time after a verification process the displaced will be taken back if any problem arises during this process bangladesh and myanmar will try to resolve them through discussions. stratfor joins us from cox is bizarre what else is being said about this agreement this deal. well according to the bangladesh government they've come to some sort of agreement with the myanmar government as to a role for the united nations the u.n. refugee agency we now understand the myanmar government has given them the green light to myanmar had originally pushed back on any kind of role for the u.n. we also understand that according to the bangladesh government they are going to
12:13 pm
ask me to petition india and china to help set up these temporary camps in the areas where these villages that we've seen have been so horrifically destroyed and burnt to the ground no particular timeframe though with respect to how long this process is going to take we know according to the bangladesh government that it's expected to start in around two months time interestingly enough and it's important to recognize that there is a specific group that are being looked at as part of this agreement and they are those that came here to bangladesh last october and the six hundred twenty thousand that have arrived here leaving me and mark since organist so as you can probably understand there is a lot more flesh that needs to be put on the very bones of this agreement something
12:14 pm
that the bangladesh government already refusing to call an agreement they're saying that they are working on some sort of a range of months to try and repatriate some hundreds of thousands of people that you see in these camps and getting how do they see in about the still what's the response been that's incredible. we'll be talking to quite a few people the smalling as you can well imagine very very skeptical after not only the last three or four months of suffering these horrific atrocities but years of institutionalized was described by human rights groups as institutionalized discrimination by the media and government one lady that we spoke to said that there was no way that she would agree to voluntarily go back unless she could be guaranteed some sort of citizenship card some sort of id card that would be issued to her before she went back into the country guaranteeing some sort of citizenship status and as we know these people the remainder they are not citizens of myanmar
12:15 pm
they are effectively stateless people so there's no real understanding of pushing any kind of initial agreement forward and looking at the legal status of these people once they return to me and another gentleman we spoke to said he flatly refused to even entertain the idea of going back he said that he was absolutely terrified he said look at the evidence she said that the myanmar military is killing our people many of our men women and children have disappeared we don't know where they are we don't indeed know whether they are still alive and he said that it doesn't matter what kind of arrangement is agreed between the bangladeshis and me and maher government he would stay here so as you can well imagine a lot of fear here a lot of distrust it's vital to say that it seems as if some sort of agreement is certainly beginning to form but the actual implementation of the complexities of implementing this agreement is going to be very difficult it sounds and charles

12:22 pm
excuse to take over power and so that is why the two court cases are into think the high court judgment saying this was lawful which is a lot of human rights specialists actually expressed surprise that. the high court judge could actually say such action by an army is lawful but that is what the judgment is it was definitely not a coup so it's very much in the favor of the new administration here to get that hearing through jane andrew symonds thank you a pakistani policeman has been killed in an operation to clear supporters of an islamist party you've been camped out an intersection for three weeks hundreds of riot police moved in and threw tear gas canisters at about three hundred demonstrators they calling for the resignation of the minister who committed a religious reference in a bill maher hyder is near the eastern city of lahore tell us about what happened.

so we can capture them. violent homicides are reported to have fallen by just over twenty percent in the last year the violence observatory responsible for monitoring violent deaths says there's a number of reasons why among them the dismantling of drug cartels and increasing the security budget and reform of the police force the government says one of the reasons there's been a fall in the number of violent deaths is because of army and police patrols like this one in some of the most dangerous neighborhoods in the country. but here on the outskirts of some of the most dangerous city in the country in the middle says she lives in fear and doesn't believe the government's claims of success. is always kidnappings violent killings it's difficult for us to talk about this there are repercussions that violence has an. reduced although the numbers are down critics

say policing remains sporadic and people still live in fear. it's costly to keep troops permanently the areas are very large and many are still controlled by criminals. and the targeted killings continue in recent days the bodies of three political activists were found but government supporters say improvement needs to be measured over the long term. the murder rate is still six times larger than the world the situation is still critical but the policies must be sustainable to show the population but this is the way to repress crime. for now a signal is being sent to the gangs that change is happening in the us and the children have a right to play in peace but he just. during the presidency of barack obama then businessman donald trump often criticized him for playing what he said was too much golf but now trump regularly spends his weekends
