9:02 pm
first to syria where at least fifty people have been killed in just twenty four hours in government and russian as strikes twenty three people were killed in a syrian airstrike in the damascus suburb of east and go to the area has been under government siege for four years and three hundred fifty thousand people are in desperate need of aid thirty seven people were killed in russian air strikes on a gathering of displaced people in darrow's or province british based activists say fifteen children were among the victims or some of been debate has just returned from syria to just across the border in turkey. despite a cease fire agreement between iran turkey and russia the violence in syria does not seem to be coming to an end the airstrikes in the hooter district of damascus targeted three different residential areas according to activists on the ground the
9:03 pm
number of casualties is on the rise they're saying that they are not able to provide help to all of the victims because they have very limited supplies inside. and a number of hospitals have also been targeted in the last few months they say that because of this siege and the assad government has not been allowing any medical aid or medical supplies to come in and they're not able to treat patients as they would in a normal situation this is not the only place where the rights of taken place there also russian strikes with a door in between their door and this is an area where isis fighters have fled to but it's not just isis fighters who've fled into the areas it's also civilians according to activists on the ground most of the people killed here they would have been civilians so it's another day of violence that we've seen in syria activists and in college telling us from the ground that in the last ten days or so more than
9:04 pm
one hundred people have been killed in just this eastern hooter's district which is besieged by syrian forces and they say they don't see the violence coming to an end any time soon joining hand this year is it going to yield this fellow with the european council on foreign relations a specialist on syria thanks very much for coming in so let's talk about the timing of this could we recently had the summit between russia iran and turkey in that meeting between putin and assad and with the u.n. talks to just start up is all the kind of activity we're seeing on the ground in syria linked to that i believe it's linked to the to that and it's this these attacks also come month after the cease fire agreement signed by rebels and the government and the government apparently used the recent attack by someone other rebel groups in one of the towns in eastern. guta as a pretext to target this area i think the main aim is to make rebels feel even weaker ahead of. talks next week on twenty eight of normal so you mentioned there
9:05 pm
the areas suburb of damascus why is this area so significant it is a very i mean it doesn't occupy a large area on the map where the population is between three to four hundred thousand it's a very significant rebel area right from the beginning and it's very close to the capital city the rebels have been holding this area against the regime in the last seven years and a lot in the last four years they lived under siege and the situation in the area so there was still there the senior u.n. official describe the situation as the region as the epicenter of suffering in syria and what are some of these other areas i mean there's been quite a bit of talk about the fact that i saw as managed to stage a few counter offensives into the areas where it was thought that they had taken control of them or what you make of them the ice all elements of all this the issue is actually the ice was much less strong in syria at the moment but it doesn't necessarily mean that the syrian army is and isn't
9:06 pm
a good shape to take on the isis despite the weakening of isis forces the syrian army has been suffering from war fatigue and the it has been very difficult for them to recapture areas from isis that's why they're relying heavily on airstrikes and artillery is of different sorts which increases the number of casualties because they can't necessarily hold it against isis on the ground fighting for face to face what do you make about that that the russian element of the strikes which seems just so quite severe strikes what sort of cannot tell us about the way the russians are operating at the moment the i mean they've been they've used some strategic. fighter jets like the long range fighter jets flew for over five hours from russia to bomb a small village and the. i don't and they are not necessarily sure about the military justification of using these kind of weapons but we know that the russian military. officials say this is the easiest way to intensify the airstrikes in this
9:07 pm
region in syria because they don't have the capacities inside syria they also don't have the the. armed drawn capabilities as a sophisticated as the u.s. has so they rely heavily on these kind of weapons and we also know that isis has. manpads like a surface to air missiles but the broader issue is that they want to both russians and the regime is trying to. decrease the level of public support for both isis and the rebels ahead of the u.n. geneva meetings and the problem with geneva talks is that on the one on one side you have the assad government which holds most of the territory in syria and on the other hand you have rebel groups which. hold very little territory and the syrian democracy forces which control the u.s. backed syrian the market forces which control one fourth of syria is not on the table so that's horses in the negotiations is problematic for this reason

9:32 pm
a coup against the previous president. before the so we can speak to mariana sanchez in the capital to go around to how is the vote. her lauren are. going to you know when we haven't heard of any of any violence yet . there's been a lot of tension in the last few days because there was. really political activism from the opposition parties and one political activists from the ruling party that were killed that were talked to day after day before now ah there's a little bit of tension among the people from the other party that because they've been playing in the last few days that the election could be rigged so what they are saying is that they will be monitoring everything that happened try the polling stations they think that the government controlled but have this theory that government controlled the. army and the police. they say that they will be
9:33 pm
only validating those ballots that are validated but they will only recognize the ballots that are validated by their own monitors and each party you talk to one party has a g.c. two of them in each polling station and so we will have to see till the end of the day until the end of the voting day as to see if the numbers. coincide the numbers from the monitors from the political parties and also from the official results of the electoral tribunal whenever they come and certain areas in the shoes of immigration and violence have been a big part of these elections what are the candidates offering on these subjects. in general the candidates are offering their offerings that the better the economy that they will fight corruption and impunity but indeed one of the most important
9:34 pm
issues in this country is security because this is one of the most dangerous countries the highest murder rate among the highest murder rates in the world outside a war zone so the candidates will be i will have a very difficult task to match and to convince voters. they will be able to match what this government has done is the government of one old london monday has implemented the serious of the curative policies that have paid well because the level of homicide rates have come down to the observatory profile includes a very reliable test that is least thirty percent of the homicide rates have gone down in the last twelve years about very unfortunately in this country where people can simply walk out their homes because they can get killed anytime so air many people will do the same thing about whether they want a new candidate
9:35 pm
a new president of the real idea or whether they want the same policies to continue with this presidency three electors are essential thank you very much indeed. we won the elections in honduras we can speak to x. maine he's a senior associate for international policy at the center for economic and policy research based in washington thanks very much indeed for being with us can you what's the level of international monitoring is there of an election in this election in honduras well both the european union and the organization of american states of monitors on the ground but you know there are fairly small delegations just a few hundred and i think there's a great deal of skepticism as to you know whether they can genuinely monitor the situation throughout the country securely in rural areas where in past elections there have been a lot of reports of irregularities. and you know we have to take into account the fact that yes no i was just going to say that because it would just be useful for
9:36 pm
background for people who are watching this who don't know much about one hundred twenty feet here to explain why how can and as ended up back on the ballot paper given that he supported a coup against his precess or he was trying to change the constitution about tom with a referendum. explaining how it's ended up that to hand as is the current president can run again this time. well of course that's a major issue and it's part of the reason why you have an alliance of opposition parties that are called the alliance against the tater ship because many hundreds feel that way because in fact the honduran constitution doesn't allow reelection and the only way to bypass that or the only way to have reelection is to change the constitution through a popular referendum this didn't occur instead you have the supreme court of honduras which is stacked almost entirely with allies of the president that decided that the constitution wouldn't be taken into account as far as the reelection issue
9:37 pm
went and they cited human rights as the reason so really a complete sort of sham decision on the part of the hundred supreme court there were enormous protests after the decision was made but as your reporter was highlighting earlier. the president controls all of the institutions of the country the judiciary the electoral authority the military of course a very close relationship with the military and also the media tends to be in the hands of private actors that are very very much pro-government and so there's sort of a barrage of pro-government propaganda there so really very little space at all for the opposition expressed any kind of dissent and a lot of people i believe won't be voting in these elections they don't consider them to be legitimate and i want to mention the saudi organization american states
9:38 pm
what's that take on the way this is being run and what kind of reaction when they have if they felt that it had in fact the elections when it fact. well in the last elections in two thousand and thirteen there were a good deal of irregularities that were reported by some independent observation groups either the oas or the e.u. the e.u. i think that a bit of a better job of actually featuring those irregularities in their report even though they accepted the final result of the oil didn't do that much at all and i think the feeling is that the oas the organization of american states is an institution very much controlled by united states this point particularly when it comes to these electoral monitoring missions and so. they tend to be very critical when it comes to. you know left wing incumbents that might win elections much less so when it comes to right wing more produce less candidates that might win
9:39 pm
elections and explain thank you very much indeed for joining us thank you thank you kenya's military says it's pushed fighters out of a forest along its southern border with somalia but villagers fear another unknown group is now carrying out attacks on civilians in the area people displaced by the fighting and defying government requests to return to their homes catherine sawyer reports from southern kenya. elisabet two sons were reason he killed by an unknown people believed inside borneo a forest that extends to the border with somalia. their home area we too as well as other paths along the kenyan coast have been attacked several times over the last few years. we stayed home that night instead of going back to the camp for displaced people one of my sons was not well and so we all decided to be with him we were attacked at around eight pm two other people were killed on that night in
9:40 pm
this village the government has often blamed somalis are shabaab fighters who've been using the forest as a hideouts to plan attacks and train kenyan recruits but also increasingly conflict between firmus and hard as living inside the forest one of elizabeth cuddle sons was in that house when the attackers came the other one was right out there there was also a friend in the compound their mother was preparing to sleep in the next house she says that the attackers targeted the men they slit their throats and then fled the members of. this lama county administrative leader shows us some of the trouble areas he says the security operation has forced al-shabaab out of the vast forests or little to the right you see. an old bulls would see if they can use. have been seen in years and when i was seriously living the country they don't mean free like in the past. we cannot the government now wants more than two thousand people who
9:41 pm
have been living in this temporary shelters on the edge of the forest to go back home life is stuff for them here they have little food and a bed bag infestation but they say going back right now is not an option so. we quickly said colin if i knew you it's true the government has pushed out but what we fear even more than al-shabaab are the herders in the forest they're the ones who've been killing our people lately they're the ones who should be dealt with before we go back. adolescent about also lives in the compound this is the first time in three months that she and her san have come back to check on their home they don't have much time they tell us they have to go back to the camp before nightfall when it gets dangerous catherine sorry are just zero we two south in kenya. arlen's e.u. commissioner says the u.k. must change its approach to brics in negotiations because it risks leading to a hard border between northern ireland and the republic of ireland which is part of
9:42 pm
the european union border controls would be in violation of a nineteen year old deal which ended the conflict in northern ireland and it's not just bricks and dividing the parties the arash language has also become a major issue from belfast neve parker explains. in the heart of the. it's a cultural center in west belfast i was speakers discuss the issues of the day many want the irish language to have official status in the courts the regional parliament and on road signs like in scotland and welsh in wales very few people speak their language fluently here around eleven percent claim to have some knowledge of irish a figure that steadily growing among republicans who favor a united ireland over british rule speakers. along with protect from the. speakers in scotland because annoyance in that sense being denied us is not just
9:43 pm
