a single corner that hasn't been destroyed if you want to fight it don't target civilians instead take on the armed groups at the front lines god willing they'll teach you a lesson briefing the u.n. security council in new york the man who's supposed to lead the talks on tuesday stefan de mistura condemned the violence he noted that the syrian government had perspire own its travel to geneva but he said they needed to attend naturally we hope indeed expect that the government will be on its way shortly but to get in i don't break that into a commitment to break them putting when they met in sochi that meeting part of intense diplomacy in recent weeks the russians who turned things around on the battlefield for assad are supposed to bring the syrian government to the geneva table and the saudis created a new opposition group ing to go to the talks out are key players like former

a refugee what can we want from the talks. as long as assad remains geneva doesn't mean anything. they show solidarity with syrians but in reality they're all complicit and involved in the destruction of syria we just hope the siege can end. our hope is not russia nor iran. and. we hope this round could be a new beginning because of the major changes before the geneva meeting we see the meeting in geneva whether it's the eighth or the tenth or twenty fifth round of talks they're all the same there is a lot at stake at these talks opposition leaders have been telling us that they're fearful that if the united nations fails yet again to come through its solution to provide a long lasting peaceful terms that all sides can agree upon they will be forced to go to work for c.n.n.
russian solution when they feel that russia will undermine the role of the united nations as it tries to bring its own version of the solution for syria which are in power and many people here will tell you that this is something that they do not want meanwhile the united states says it's considering adjustments to how it gives military support to kurdish led forces fighting eisel in northern syria he considers the kurdish syrian fighters known as y. p.g. terrorists on friday the turkish government said that u.s. president donald trump told his counterpart for. the supplies to the kurdish led groups would hope the state department now says such decisions on military support will be based on battlefield requirements. we are allies of the u.s. under nato and we have made it clear several times to the u.s. with the right method with the right rhetoric that this was not the right thing to do what we were told in response was that they attach a lot of importance to the fight against and as
a result they have to assess all options but of course it is not a choice for us to work with these organizations to fight against i so it is a necessity they told us but we are having difficulty understanding this since when do you need to work with one terrorist organization against another terrorist organization it's not fitting of a serious state and not behavior that suits a country such as the united states a left wing television host is on track to win honduras his presidential election dashing the hopes of the current leader. is five points ahead of the incumbent president. as with more than seventy percent of votes counted. this is true. supporters of sullenness didn't wait for a final result from. a popular t.v. personality this sixty four year old took the lead in a much contested general election. we want something new from honduras and the new

honduras that is democratic. hours after polls closed top candidates claimed victory and candidate recently from the liberal party conceded necessarily hard won the election for president and this remains waiting for the rural vote from remote areas with us hoping they could still give him a chance to win. for now the alliance claims a victory that means hearsay is irreversible. but in a sense as i just found this memo senior military general has denied religious discrimination exists in his country comments were made after meeting with pope francis the head of the catholic church is on his first visit to myanmar and has been advised not to use the word were during discussions and military crackdown a member state has forced more than six hundred thousand ranger to flee to neighboring bangladesh has more now from the angle. word coming out late on monday here the first day of the pope's visit to myanmar that he met with the commander in

. early results have given him during his opposition leader a clear need in the presidential election with more than seventy percent of the votes counted salvador nasrallah is five points ahead of the incumbent president on all underpinned as both candidates have to clear victory. of ok on the indonesian island of bali is spewing smoke up to three thousand meters into the sky authorities have expanded the danger zone and avoided more if i can ration from the immediate area international airport has been pledged hundreds of flights canceled . thirteen people have been killed and thirty injured in a suicide attack southeast of the iraqi capital of baghdad it happened near a market in the number one area still has claimed responsibility imran khan has more now from baghdad. well police sources are telling us that often the explosions are small improvised explosive device that a number of gunmen least full they say fights on the roof tops of buildings
adjacent to the market knots where we saw a lot of those that's taking place now we are hearing that i still have claimed responsibility for this is attacked now this will shock a number of people in baghdad i guess through a relative heat of call in the last major suicide attack like this that we saw a bombing was actually in may you know the happiness very small incidents outside of baghdad in the south but nothing in the south of baghdad sorry but nothing the scale of all as i say i still have claimed responsibility for this it's likely that they striking back because they've suffered defeats in mosul in iraq and syria and also in the north in now. sorry iraq zimbabwe's new president. is expected to form his cabinet this week all eyes are on whether he'll break with the past and name a broad based government or select old guard figures from robert mugabe's era permit us reports now from harare. nearly two weeks is the military takeover
zimbabwe's security forces say the situation is getting back to normal the police who haven't been seen on the streets of a rally for days. for now that means doing joint patrols with soldiers to try and maintain law and order law enforcement agents are already receiving reports of looting and illegal immigration and other people's property but security firms in houses. it is criminal in the spirit of man. and it will be made by people of the law the announcement comes days after innocence and i got what the new president urged citizens not to take matters into their own hands by punishing allies of the former president robert mugabe there are reports that robert mugabe and his wife grace have been given immunity from prosecution the police won't say how many of mugabe's allies have been arrested so the most high profile is
a gracious the former finance minister he's accused of corruption going back at least ten years. some say selective punishment could be a sign not much is going to change under the new administration we might have had one person removed but the higher of the new peers remains in place so for me the more things change the more they remain the same and you know if i'm against you and i think you are challenging me. you become fair game in human rights abuses the high court recently ruled the military takeover which eventually saw robert mugabe resign was lawful zimbabweans who were tired of having macabre as their leader for thirty seven years have welcomed the court's decision. but others worry allowing the army to legitimize taking up with the functions of the state sets a dangerous precedent. for the presence of
man or micro has arrived and became the first one the first stop of a four day africa visit he says he wants to transform france's relations with africa and will give a major speech on tuesday to kick start the process to talk about reports. the french president arrived in turkey no fasces capital what could do good late on monday night he was warmly greeted by president barack. emanuel michael says he's come to africa to start a new chapter in french african relations one built on equality rather than former colonial ties you really want to merge the two so i wanted to make the first stop on my africa trip it's also a symbol to mark a new era of relations not just with your country mr president but with the whole continent. call has condemned france's colonial past he says he wants to end sixty years of french influence over its former colonies where self interest was the guiding principle. former president jacques chirac embodied the neo colonial
approach that became known as far south lake nicolas sarkozy had little time for africa in a controversial speech in dhaka he said africans had failed to enter the history books. it was under francois hollande that the syal region became a new frontier in what he called france's fight against terror. the french have no desire to remain here in mali because it must be the malayan for themselves and africans who ensure the security the independence of the sovereignty of mali that's how i understand relations between france and africa. when it comes to africa has had some false starts he was criticized for saying africa was being held back by women having too many children and for a plan to place french immigration processing centers in some african countries.
like every new president. into the old french african networks of faith his but in the end most presidents interrupt keeping the status quo and they criticized for that. matter has chosen to start his four day trip to west africa with a speech to students at work or duke university he says it's young africans who carry the hopes of tomorrow and this falls as young as president he may just be the one to convince them that he means what he says it's all just what. the u.s. president donald trump has raised eyebrows again after using a racial slur at a white house event he called it democratic senator pocahontas during a ceremony honoring native american veterans of the second christianson in the explains why some found his remarks offensive. the event was to honor native american veterans but president donald trump couldn't resist the opportunity to criticize a political rival use the name of a native american hero in front of
a portrait of president andrew jackson who is known for forcefully removing natives from their ancestral lands no less in a way that was not meant as a complement thank you because you're very very special people you're here long before any of us were here. although we have a representative in congress who they say was here a long time ago they call or pocahontas it's a name he first used on the campaign trail and polka dot this is not happy she got to refer to the democratic senator and staunch trump critic elizabeth warren the senator who's claimed native american ancestry was quick to respond it is deeply unfortunate that the president of the united states cannot even make it through a ceremony honoring these heroes without having to throw out a way for the president's spokesperson said there was nothing offensive about it
you know most people find offensive center warrant a line about her heritage to advance her career but native groups such as the national congress of american indians have expressed outrage at the president's use of the name pocahontas before and again called it a slur that denigrates her legacy and i think her native women who remain and i think the guy. one of the name one of the stories of our women in a race in a story but using her name a pejorative term only helps to concur the extra high level of violence we have against nato bombing today you know the controversy overshadowed recognition of the veterans who use the navajo language to transmit secret messages during world war two sending what some insist is a message of disrespect kristen salumi al-jazeera the german chancellor angela merkel will hold talks with the social democrats in an effort to form a government despite her party winning the most seats in september election michael hasn't been able to form a coalition government has yet to make
a reports now from that. for the past two months martin short his position had been unequivocal defeat as badly as his party suffered in september meant opposition was the only thing they could enter into in this parliament but with changing times so his opinion has changed the failure of the jamaica coalition talks thrust his party back into the limelight could they consider talking during the americans government government party could they consider four more years in government until now apparently not but after a statement to reporters just a short his opinion has changed so it should discussions lead to us helping to form a government in whatever form our party members will be able to vote on that the coming days and weeks will demand much from all those involved in our party in the media and the public we're entering into discussions with outcome it's not known no options are off the table the point to make here is the danger that faces the
social democrats because they were widely perceived to have lost voters in the last election precisely because of their membership of a grand coalition with angela merkel how might they look upon another grand coalition and then from the conservative point of view angle in merkel says she is now prepared for another grand coalition but the big imponderable what will the voters make of this what will they make of yet more grand coalition and given the fact that both parties were punished at the polls the last time voters got their chance to express their opinions britain's prince harry and his fiance the us actress megan markel have given the first t.v. interview following the official announcement of their engagement but it's up as. prince harry and meghan markle together outside london's kensington palace the thirty six year old actress brings a touch of the twenty first century to britain's royal family she's an american who
describes herself as mixed race which came under scrutiny in media coverage of their relationship and some of that scrutiny and you ended up making a very public statement about it some of that scrutiny was centered around your ethnicity making when you realize that or to think. of course it's disheartening you know it's. it's a shame that that is the climate in this world to focus that much on that or that that would be discriminatory in that sense but i think you know the end of the day i'm really just proud of who i am and where i come from and we have never put any focus on that we've just focused on who we are as a couple and so when you take all those extra layers away and all of that noise. i think it makes it really easy to just enjoy being together and to know all the rest of that out. it was in september two thousand and sixteen that they made their first public appearance
a sports event for wounded veterans later prince harry was incensed by the press coverage of their relationship his office issued an unprecedented rebuke his girlfriend meghan markle has been subjected to a wave of abuse and harassment a smear on the front page of a national newspaper the racial undertones of comment pieces and the outright sexism and racism of social media trolls this is not a game it is her life and his prince harry who's fifth in line to the throne so permission from the queen to marry this is a royal family that from the top that means with the times and so to say to do its members and harry's a modern going he's a guy he's grown up in the modern world he wants to do things his way he's not bound by tradition he's following his heart as opposed to any form of protocol that people think he should marry the world's media had set up outside kensington palace but on the streets of london news of the engagement was greeted with a mixture of delight and disinterest there were actually still there. time to get
mad when you think. so much of her interest. don't you. think but well then. missing gauge woman speaks volumes about how the royal family history. just an american actress of mixed race will become a duchess unthinkable even a few years ago. to shop al-jazeera in london. police in australia's second largest city of arrested a man accused of planning a mass shooting on news eve authorities say the twenty two year old tried to obtain an automatic rifle to attack people in melbourne it's alleged he was planning the attack at federation square a popular spot for thousands of people celebrating the new year the mile is one of the high risk persons of interest we had been monitoring him for a very lengthy period of time he's in a strange citizen and he's of somali and parents the allegations are that he was
