5:09 pm
well the first meeting with the government involved is taking place right now it's a courtesy call this is the same thing the u.n. special envoy did earlier with the opposition he's gone to the government's hotel which is close here to the u.n. headquarters and i think if it's anything like his meeting with the opposition side this will be welcoming them to geneva and setting out his plan for how he's going to proceed and his agenda now what's not clear is whether the government side will be late to having a formal meeting with him here at u.n. headquarters in geneva we were told that's a possibility in the next few hours starting this process going with both sides because of course the special envoys already met the opposition. and as far as. the syrian government's approach to all of all of this they they have just
5:10 pm
arrived how are they going to be looking at this and and the possibility that there may be some face to face talks here. well certainly the opposition would like to see face to face talks the opposition also would like to see everything that is covered by the u.n. resolution that sets out how this is supposed to work which is resolution twenty two fifty four of the u.n. security council to be covered and there is some criticism from the opposition side about stefan de mistura the special envoy and the fact that he's been focusing on some parts of that resolution not other parts they say that you need to go back to the resolution and start with the first thing in the resolution which is political transition before you move on to a future constitution and elections supervised by the united nations so disagreement but i think some disagreement between the opposition and the special envoy even before the government gets involved i have to say we've seen so many
5:11 pm
rounds of talks here we've seen so much fighting ongoing even until hours before these talks started. with an aerial bombardment that you have to say hopes on particularly high. change base life for us there in geneva thanks jason. grated breaking news to tell you about a story about the bosnian war crimes appeal hearing. earlier we have ported to you that the person in cry at mr. had taken what he said was a poison it is now being reported by croatian t.v. that he has now died after allegedly taking at this point and that's all the information that we have on this at the moment but we did hear from the judges from the proceedings in the hay. a little bit earlier the judge talking about the courtroom being now
5:12 pm
a crime scene that's all the information that we have on this at the moment of course bring you more as and when we get it we're going to bring in dennis again deputy director for the. project which associated with the balkan transitional justice project joins us from syria thanks very much for being with us. so what do you make then of these reports first of all. we have not been able to. actually we have confirmation that he was the. presiding judge tried and i would use at the beginning the actual police the rest of the hearing was held was dreamed up one that this was the crime scene our. police are the. one. to see what actually happened. we just. confirmation.
5:13 pm

5:14 pm
they tried bureau has developed with crimes. by charge by the in crowd up the shoals against one of the other german conflict the last the between one thousand at least ninety two or nearly ninety three up until ninety ninety for most of the trial of their. tribe you know have been against the serbs perpetrated against bosniaks but this is one of the rare cases where the bunny grow up leadership was it was investigated six men were prosecuted all of them all of them have been buggin to the joint criminal enterprise into an exploding bosnia population for a crime from territories that crites. will believe or will was there is. now they have been sentenced to a total of one hundred eleven years and the other. was sentenced to the last twenty five years in prison or whatever the men trample of this liquid and not because of

5:17 pm
president is official policy is certainly a reflection of the president and what he believes and well we have not had any reaction from the white house so far certainly those standard explanations from the past exist when it comes to these tweets and that's why so many in the united states are particularly shocked given the fact that this gives us some insight into what the president believes and the fact that he is one of the most powerful men on the planet certainly is concerning to many given the content of these videos the fact that it shows three different videos that seem to highlight alleged attacks by muslims against people and property being shared by the president but again and verified committee how could life for us there in washington thank you many british government leaders are reported to be close to reaching an agreement on the so-called briggs it divorce bill british media said it will cost u.k.

5:19 pm
thousand people died last year the world health organization or w.h.o. says the number of infections increased by one million pair to two thousand and fifteen did catch us off guard although we have noticed an increase for the last three years we thought that the increasing use of insecticide treated nets as well as the increased use of tests for malaria would decline it would cause a decline in the highest number of malaria deaths was in nigeria the democratic republic of congo and india the w.h.o. says more funding will save lives as will a change in treatment methods the number of people access treatment is not as high as it should be we have made certain assumptions and yet almost forty percent of children on the five who should be getting treatment i'm not
5:20 pm
getting into toll the w.h.o. is hoping to reverse the rising trend by ensuring people have access to preventive measures and treatment both in public and private health sector natasha going to aim al-jazeera. leaders from europe and africa holding their first joint summit it's taking place in the ivory coast they say it will herald a new partnership but there's growing concern that aid to africa is being used to block refugees and migrants instead of being used for development let's get more on this from the tasha butler who is in abidjan for sana tasha fair to say migration very much at the top of the agenda at this summit right now. yes well the leaders are just arriving and shortly they will begin this summit and when they do get down to business there is no doubt that migration will be one of the issues which really dominates their talks it comes at
5:21 pm
a time when so many people still trying to absorb the fact that refugees are being traded to slaves in libya and what officials on both sides have told us is that we can expect some sort of initiative or plan from the a.u. e.u. partnership to try and tackle those prices to try and evacuate many of those refugees who are trapped there also questions over e.u. aid because it's linked to all this because some people are saying that the fact that much of e.u. aid is being used to try and manage europe's migration crisis in africa is fuelling situations on the ground like the one we're seeing in libya and elsewhere across the african continent and that is something that is likely to be raised is also something that we found out more about when we went to brussels last week. in a park in brussels not far from the headquarters of the european union volunteers help dozens of refugees to find shelter from the cold sudanese eritrean ethiopian
5:22 pm
most say they've endured terrible journeys to reach europe like daniel he's been here for three months. as refugees continue to arrive on their doorstep european leaders scramble for ways to stop more coming their latest strategy is to offer african countries more development aid if they crack down on migration and when i talk with our african partners about the future it's not development that comes up more often it's other two words investments and security the e.u. is the biggest donor of aid to africa giving twenty billion euros a year but some members of the european parliament are frustrated that some of the money is being used to manage europe's refugee crisis rather than to alleviate poverty. the european parliament be very clear about we don't think development aid for me should be spent on border controls we want development aid funding fund on
5:23 pm
on the ground they want to do which is reducing poverty in the world and making people's lives better. critics say you money is also fueling already chaotic situations europe has funded tighter border control in libya fewer refugees a crossing the mediterranean sea but libya has become a bottleneck for others who are vulnerable to slave traders and people traffickers . youth workers in africa say african and e.u. leaders favoring quick fixes over long term solutions we cannot continue a partnership that has no benefit to people what's more important is where europe and africa look at each other in the eyes and say what do we want is it economic partnership is it political. is it what do we need exactly european and african union leaders hope their first joint summit in hobby job will focus on what they call a new era in relations one based on equality but once the greetings and handshakes
5:24 pm
are over there is little doubt that with the latest revelations from libya its migration which everyone here says is likely to dominate the agenda. well this is the first time that these two organizations are actually meeting the african union and the european union there are more than eighty heads of state leaders from countries across continents and they will be trying to tackle the issues that touch them whether it's economy security peace migration or aid a vast number of issues and they say that at the end they will come try and come up with some sort of joint declaration as to the way that they wish to go forward. for us there in arizona thank you. the long list of problems facing zimbabwe's new president most agree tackling the economy is job number one zimbabwe went from a regional powerhouse to the brink of catastrophe on demagoguery and as emerson
