2:07 pm
would be readjusting its policy when it comes to its allies in syria especially after the fall of iceland in rucka turkey on the other hand has been calling for on the united states to stop arming these mainly kurdish fighters with turkey sees as terrorist wants the united states to be part of its campaign to try and clear the area of what it called all terrorist groups which include these kurdish militias which are allies of the united states as these statements come there is no end to the fighting on the ground inside syria but we have seen attacks by syrian government and its allies on opposition position rebel positions in not just the province of aleppo but also in the politics of hama in hama doctors and it workers have been telling us about the situation on the ground they say their infrastructure has been systematically targeted by the regime and to save lives all they can do is dig tunnels and go underground. samaras on the
2:08 pm
operating table because his leg was injured in an airstrike but this is no ordinary 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 theory doctors are keeping its location secret for fear of further attacks by government get. they showed us photos after some of the hundred and thirty five year strikes which have targeted their hospital medical facilities and medical workers nowadays are far from being working in an ideal situation they're suffering all sorts of challenges one of the main challenges has to do with the insecurity they are witnessing not only has been ongoing for a long time but at the same time it doesn't it mostly doesn't stop. this is what remains of many hospitals above ground. it took months of digging five hundred
2:09 pm
square meters in the mountains to convert tunnels into frequent rooms workers then plaster the walls and place fan 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 to emergency exits in case of any attack being on the ground brings the constant challenge of maintaining the flow of fresh air so doctors and patients don't suffocate. we face difficulties such as 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
2:10 pm
years of war preventive care units and health centers are nonexistent potentially fatal diseases are common because of a lack of vaccine. health care is being used as a weapon of war in syria. hospitals means denial of treatment and the only option to save lives is going on the ground. zero. advocacy manager to syrian american medical society he says they've been using the tactic for some time but. it's. they after day it's more challenging because when we started fortifying the horse with. different ways like sandbags or building an additional war around the hospital then the regime and its allies started to use alternative we posed more destructive weapons like we witnessed uses of. bunker buster bombs it was
2:11 pm
used against the hospital in a few days ago hospital on the ground which is supposed to protect the health workers the patients this camp and it's over six meters of cement so we have to dig more and more on top of the five hospitals in different ways as we as we raised this issue and we have been talking about this in every platform using b. and channels and other media every place there and have been doing some but i feel like those of course but i think one of them is to share the coordinates of our hospitals with the. operating military operation in syria we are open to do this but we need guarantees we need at least u.n. monitors to monitor the location so if it's socketed well the next say there's no.
2:12 pm
plan b. for this for this plan of of sharing coordinates of the hospitals for aid planes have arrived in yemen's capital sana'a one carrying vaccines to help fight the ferry and the other three were bringing humanitarian workers yemen is injuring the world's worst cholera epidemic and now doctors are warning of an outbreak of the potentially fatal to ferry a virus is the no movement at the major ports of data satellite military alliance had promised to reopen aid routes on thursday. sum up was former finance minister is in court accused of corruption just a day after a new president was sworn in ignatius' chambre who was detained by the military during the takeover that forced president robert mugabe from office however the high court has just ruled that the military's actions during the takeover were illegal and simmons joins us from harare and i'm just wondering what the feeling is
2:13 pm
there outside the court in the country generally. on the first day of the second president of independence. well on the streets here in downtown harare there is a sense of normality right now jane the military have removed themselves they've gone back to barracks that's what we haven't got confirmation on just yet but we've been driving around for a while now no deployments outside the key areas. no military and we've seen some police being introduced back into the streets in the capital as far as mood goes people are pretty buoyant they were impressed with the speech but they all feeling that that really there is a sense of expectation still that needs a delivery of results and so what we're actually hearing and seeing is a lot of hope but still some trepidation beneath that hope of whether the results
2:14 pm
will actually be delivered and a good day for the military considering the court decision. well most certainly the high court decision is very significant and it's also controversial because it's a poll what the army did and some commentators legal experts human rights activists believe it could set a precedent that it's fine for an army to roll in and take over if the situation is right politically and it's been you know actually approved by a high court judge so that's an interesting one we're also waiting to hear what sort of a judgment will be made to the but magistrate's court hearing of ignatius the former finance minister accused of corruption and also an appearance by could send a ship who is the head of the zanu p.f. use when he's accused of corruption and also defamation these are the first in what will be a long line of prosecutions it seems in the hunt down of those guilty of corruption
2:15 pm

2:21 pm
the u.n. h.c.r. the u.n. will be involved in the process and it's aiming to set up temporary camps so people like these can live in the areas in which their homes were destroyed but the two main issues when you speak to the people here are issues of trust trust of the military and secondly citizenship will they eventually become citizens of the country for so long for so many generations they have called. many minorities eleven but as majority say they often face discrimination christians living in the mountains near the border with india faced violent oppression under military rule although the situation's improved they say the system remains stacked against them it's got highly reports and inch and state remote and rugged straddling mountain tops chin state is the poorest region in

2:25 pm
palace in paris tell us more about what he said and why he feels so strongly about this. well jane the. has been stressing that this is something that emanuel in my car has felt strongly about even long before he became president he said that the great cause the big cause of his five year term will be gender equality he nominated secretary of state for gender equality. she talked to just before him and she outlined why it was so important that the whole of society took this problem seriously as he suggested that there would be legislation next year we've just heard from president himself what he plans to do. several concrete steps that people were looking for probably will be now he said that the number one step
2:26 pm
that needs to be dealt with in terms of advancing gender equality was eliminating violence against women of course today is that international day as you just heard he says that he feels personally ashamed by things that happened one of the ways he says he wants to start a fight that is an education campaign training teachers and teaching assistants in places not just second we school primary schools but even in crashes because he says that it has to start with the way that people are brought up and that the problem is that people are being brought up with stereotypes seeing the way that men and and women relate to each other in terms of domination and that leads further along the line to people. paying the price and even being killed he held a minute's silence for women who were murdered at the hands of their partner last year he says that every three days a woman in france dies as the result of gender based violence so it's
2:27 pm
a very broad ranging approach he's taking many feminist associations are waiting to hear whether. he'll put his money where his mouth is and. more funds to. two different groups which actually work with victims of gender based violence but it seems that he really is making this a priority jane ok and he's still talking so we'll update as soon as we get more details from that speech thanks a lot for that. at least three hundred seventy eight migrants have been rescued in libya after three boats were damaged in the mediterranean sea the mission carried out by the libyan coast guard took about seventy two hours the u.n. says more than thirty three thousand migrants have died at sea trying to reach european shores since two thousand. and jurors are going to the polls on sunday to elect a new president public safety is a major concern for voters because their country has one of the highest murder rates in the world the government says progress has been made to tackle violence

2:29 pm
the security budget and reform of the police force the government says one of the reasons the. pinafore in the number of violent deaths it's 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 the most dangerous city in the country he 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 of violence hasn't reduced although the numbers are down critics say policing remains sporadic and people still live in fear that. 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
