10:08 am
to retract those comments but the communities minister in the u.k. sodje job it is now saying that what mr trump has said is reprehensible and that he would use his own position as a public figure to try to fight against this sort of dissemination of bigotry and hatred and of course it is worth pointing out that at the beginning of donald trump's tenure as president there was active discussion in the u.k. about inviting him to visit the country on a state visit and at the time minister job it was saying that people should keep an open mind and not just stand against a trump visit outright but now in light of the dissemination of these videos that have been supported by far right wing groups mr job as chairman has very much changed. that francis has left man martin is on his way to bangladesh head of the roman catholic church and me and maher since tuesday he's been criticized for not

10:12 am
highlight potential difficulties with respect to their identification if indeed this repatriation plan goes forward this is a citizenship card and it was made available to all ethnic groups including the ranger after independence now in one thousand nine hundred two citizenship was withdrawn for the ranger it was a few years later that they were issued with this the so-called white card now the word ranger has disappeared from it instead there is written then goalie and the religion islam. in twenty fifteen they had to hand these over and they were issued with this receipt now there is no mention of any ethnicity nationality or religion on this receipt it was a few months later that they were issued with these with a similar scant amount of information now the vast majority of ranger refused to ever pick these up from the government bangladesh has already registered hundreds

a tour amongst egyptian communities abroad before going back to egypt in the next few days however i was surprised to find out i'm prevented from leaving the us for reasons i don't understand and i'm not willing to understand i've often stated my appreciation for you are you for hosting me however i reject any intervention he prefers by preventing me from participating in a constitutional right al-jazeera is demanding the release of a channel a smart move to saying he's been an egyptian prison for eleven months now saying is accused of broadcasting false news to spread chaos which he and al jazeera strongly deny these are people he complained of mistreatment in jail he was arrested on december the twentieth all visiting family. handover of power and gaza has been postponed rival palestinian factions hamas and fatah agree to ask egypt for that to lay state a transfer of power of the gaza strip to the palestinian authority by friday as
10:19 am
part of a reconciliation deal that are now wants a new deadline of december tenth to complete arrangements that sides accusing each other of not respecting the deal mediator over the handling of the handover egypt has sent a delegation to gaza to try to resolve the issue. thousands of passengers who were stranded at bally's international airport have started to fly out after a switch in one direction blew volcanic ash from mount and gun away what has become increasingly active over the past week and scientists say the threat of an eruption is not over around one hundred thousand people living in the dangerous zone have been told to move to emergency centers as more from near mount agung in valley. i'm here in one of the largest evacuation shelters near mt are going by earlier this is basically the same so but still near enough to do for people to come here and spend the night as you can see there's a around a few hundred people here but only half of all the people in the danger zone have
10:20 am
actually registered at these shelters which means that thousands of people are still actually in the danger zone risking their lives it has been a very big challenge for the government to persuade people to come down because the situation has been going on for two months already back then two months ago i spoke with the family here of a man who actually survived the one nine hundred sixty three eruption she told me back then that people in her family had died of five hundred people in the whole village which was completely destroyed by the eruption at the time die. here is her son in law and he actually still goes back and forth to the village which is very near to the crater and he told me there is what he called fire rain coming from that right now. it's a very dangerous situation when i went back to the village in the morning i could see ash spewing out i felt my body stinging my mother told me that that's firing at
10:21 am
her fragments from the crater and a sign of bigger russian could happen but it has been quite difficult for the government to persuade people to come down and to explain to everyone that it is very dangerous and very deadly because money is a very unpredictable and although the warning system is in place all the equipment has been in place it's very difficult to persuade people to spend their life like this for days for weeks and even months in a row as winter approaches in syria many in the north of the country worry about how they'll survive as a lack of fuel and people living in besieged areas say they have already. most of the trees around them for firewood and some of. the turkey syria border. it's getting cold in syria and it's the time of the year to scavenge for things to burn they need it more inventive because in addition to cooking the family will need to stay warm in terms we came from homes because of the government we didn't
10:22 am
go to. i send my boy to collect things to. face another winter without any food or diesel. diesel is expensive and ensure supply because the northern countryside of homs has been under siege for years. is that. the reason behind the high prices is a blockade we live under even then the diesel we get from the regime areas is not suitable for cars people are forced to look for alternatives. you had to become a tree law that he fills all kinds of fees in his own and nearby villages. yes this year he says he's got sixty tons of trees to be burnt this firewood. the cost to the environment she was a small price to pay for survival. prices make us cut the trees down used to cost less than two cents
10:23 am
a kilo now it's over twenty cents. but cheaper alternatives to diesel means trees in these villages are fast disappearing. there aren't enough trees left we have been besieged for the last five years when the firewood ends will have just our clothes and god help. some residents are trying to find alternatives to cutting trees. growing them to earn a meager living. back in a home there's sort of island whatever they can get their hands on to cook with and to cook on. i can't go to school i used to like winter but there was no money to buy firewood or diesel or another children hope winter will be easy on them this year. is just one of many besieged areas in syria where tens of thousands of people are struggling to survive this would be their seventh
10:24 am
winter since the two thousand and eleven uprising and many syrians say that the outside world does nothing to ease their suffering. a surgeon refugees having to greece and the past three months is straining emergency facilities camps built a whole host a few thousand people are coping with three times that number the conditions are so dire that some are hurting themselves in the hopes of being removed from the camp and the island john hall reports on the island of. in a busy cafe outside the main refugee camp on lesbos island tally to tell stories of self harm and abuse on your way out of. had been absent i know of some people who cut themselves so that doctors can see there and let them go when you didn't already have them and no mother many. people have been here for more than a year and they're tired and psychologically and well they will hurt themselves in
10:25 am
anyway just so they can leave this island inside the camp more than six thousand people share facilities designed for just a third of that number in conditions that appear to be in breach of their human rights many have severe medical problems a man with little bolts of his knees. a husband whose wife is about to give birth. the letter says this gentleman has had two recent hospital admissions in mytilene with chest pain it sounds like he has significant coronary artery disease. but there is no easy ticket out of this place or off unless bos island the asylum process can take each year or more it's you and therefore greek government policy now to stem the tide of refugees into europe so we've heard stories about people. making themselves sick have you heard these stories can you confirm that it's true they do these things quite common all the time we hear it those sorts of injuries
10:26 am
and that they have various problems with their health but it's something we've become used to and i've been here for years at this camp and for all the years i've been here this is been going on. the words there of the camps doctor surprised he says at the lengths people are prepared to go to because of the conditions here that senior members of the european commission have visited this camp and nothing changed even the greek health minister has visited this camp and nothing changed the medical charity do. does without borders concentrates on mental health and sexual violence inside the camp it is horrendous and it is unacceptable so for me the question would be. pushing people to take this measures this extreme measures. and what do you think that is the policy if you use that in your fullest sense today. to. this.
