12:01 pm

12:02 pm
well good here's carol remaining a bit sketchy about the intended target of the taliban now they're saying that their dog a day to save ourselves the intelligence agency however there are no official confirmation john dagwood we have been told officially a dead dischord the agricultural training institute and that the attack. came in an outdoor rickshaw which injured three wheeler they then disembarked there were three of the attackers were said to have been in burqas they were covering themselves up and possibly their driver who was driving that rickshaw dench stormed entered the compound and ran garner shooting spree there was a quick reaction from the police as well as the military to our gun battle ensued we're told that dozens of people were wounded there for the likelihood of the
12:03 pm
casualties going higher but that dollar been coming out very quickly with a claim of responsibility saying that it was the squads the taleban who are led by myself by little he's also the leader of the day to get taliban pakistan over all the military also saying in the last few minutes that the attack came from somewhere across the border in afghanistan pakistan maintaining that thirty k. taliban pakistan has safe sanctuary on the afghan side of the florida and any idea why this sort of attack would happen now. well there are no. regards bargnani green saying that they have credibility every day and you forget that. there are of course blaming india for the board being burned out. gone. they're all gone or happy rid of one for not doing enough to border on border my management and all that happening go big before you
12:04 pm
are. gone the buggers don't need to have complained to the americans about the americans of course have given some a short and they really go after those dang they are a big problem and of course there are problems between washington and islamabad or another if you did read thank you for that. twenty two billion dollars that's how much money the un needs to provide humanitarian assistance around the world conflicts are pushing more people to the brink according to the un more than one hundred thirty five million people need help yemen is the world's worst humanitarian crisis with over twenty two million people in need a severe food shortage and an unprecedented color a crisis have put more yemenis address nigeria is the second on the list with fourteen and a half million people particularly women needing assistance and protection because
12:05 pm
of fighting between the military and armed groups and thirteen million people in democratic republic of congo need humanitarian help fighting has led to more internal displacement there than in any other country on the continent and more than thirteen million syrians still caught in the civil war in its seventh year in ancient need of help let's talk to our diplomatic editor james bays who is in geneva they not painting a good picture they are they james the fact that the number will just keep on increasing at staggering numbers it is. yeah this report which is but just been released in the last few minutes makes very grim reading in fact marlo cox who is the humanitarian coordinator of the united nations the top humanitarian official in the organization he is now briefing the press on the contents of this report on the crises around the world i spoke to him just moments ago as he was going into that news conference he says that conflicts and in particular protracted conflicts are
12:06 pm
the main driver of the humanitarian need which is a record amount they're asking for this year one percent up from last year twenty two point five billion u.s. dollars even if they get that they're only going to reach just close to ninety one . million people around the world when in fact they say they believe there are one hundred thirty five point seven million who are in need of their help so already from the first moment they admit that there are a large number of people that they won't be able to help because they won't get enough money and it's also worth telling you that last year's appeal in the end it went up throughout the year to twenty four billion when they put out that ongoing appeal this time last year and then throughout the year countries did donate but they only donated twelve point six billion dollars that means only fifty two point five percent of what they asked for was actually given by nations so really
12:07 pm
desperate need highlighted in this report and i can tell you sadly here and now that many of those people will not get the help they need yeah as he says very hard to get the money increasingly said james talk us about talk to us about the politics surrounding this and how it sits in the u.n. what we're likely to see happen next there. well what will happen is is that they will make this appeal and they will hope that countries are stirred into action by some of these different crises around the world some of the ones that of course everyone knows about the crisis in syria the crisis in yemen which has the most need of any in this report more than twenty two million people there as you've said needing help because of conflict and because of famine and cholera and they're very very concerned about the situation in yemen but of course there are other ongoing conflicts of call syria conflicts in south sudan central african republic there are
12:08 pm
other places i think that there will be surprised perhaps that the figures are so high for example at the democratic republic of congo we often focus on the violence there and on the difficult political situation but the result of that is humanitarian need a real rise there thirteen million people needing help all the other place that you need to look closely is the problems that are caused by boko haram because great deal of need in nigeria and also in cameroon right james best thank you. now syria like i said is one of the world's worst humanitarian crises the united nations security council failed last month to agree on investigating chemical attacks that the inquiry into their use expired after russia vetoed a resolution to extend its mandate and business on a binge of aid reports the inaction is causing fear among syrians that the perpetrators will become bolder just. when thirteen children play in the street
12:09 pm
their games in opposition held areas are often disrupted by the sound of warplanes . usually russian or syrian jets overhead. and a strike killed the mother this is in your when syrian government attacked with chemical weapons. remembers that day when he was in his brother's room and he smelled something funny. when he woke up in turkey his mother was gone. we met him there in april when he was being treated the u.n. found the syrian government responsible for the sarin gas attack in honshu hall which killed around one hundred syrians they bring call. dr abdullah their relations he's witnessed dozens of other attacks including one which killed more than one hundred people in a crowbar in hama province the town was controlled by isis fighters that the time and witnesses reported suffocation after poisonous gas was dropped on them after the rich accuses the world of noting chemical attacks even in areas which were not
12:10 pm
under ice and control his colleague dr ali the wish was killed in the attack in march he refused to leave a patient on the operating table a doctor continued the surgery and died a few hours later in an ambulance but he saved his patient dr abdullah says what happened amounts to a war crime and no one's been held accountable. the un's chemical watchdog i brought all the evidence with me the clothes dr ali was wearing blood piece of metal and samples of soil. other victims of chemical attacks and. for twenty five members. including a wife and two children the world briefly took notice when news of what happened to them. seven months on a bill has been really about the nightmare every day. for me you can't imagine my pain i was hoping after this attack a sad news regime would face something that is still the same we're in painting get
12:11 pm
no justice. that's a feeling shared by victims of hundreds of chemical bomb attack in syria and investigators have found the government responsible for most of the people fear that now that the united nations security council will not be investigating chemical attacks and with a limited mandate those carrying out chemical attacks will be emboldened. to zero in or them a little and just a moment ago the u.n. undersecretary general said the conflict in yemen is of particular concern for humanitarian assistance so the largest humanitarian crisis that we're concerned about in the world at the moment is the crisis in yemen. and. yemen has a population of twenty five million people twenty million of. need assistance and. something like seven or eight million of them are right now right on the brink of

12:14 pm

12:18 pm
a senior associate professor of politics and international studies at the international christian university he says has been positive for japan as he tried to repair its post-war image. it's seen by both the people of the government and i think the region as a regional leader that is trying to promote reconciliation and peace and i think the transition towards the new emperor emperor now he thought in april thirtieth one thousand to two thousand and nineteen is going to be a significant moment it's going to be symbolic in terms of the post we're going to identity of japan this will be the first emperor that does not have a direct link with japan's imperial past i think that's very important emperor akihito again does have a link he was born in one nine hundred thirty three his father was part of the imperial the period. party that persecuted a very brutal war in in china and in the korean peninsula and i think that this new
12:19 pm
emperor of will be able to detach himself from that history he'll be able to continue to support those passages claimed but again dealing with that aggressive hard past to something more positive something. something new something more constructive within the region and i think that his his experience and his education and his inclinations will most likely continue to push down this idea of this path of reconciliation and promoting better relations with the region. tempers are becoming increasingly frayed in honduras over the time it's taken to announce the arrest of sunday's presidential election supporters of the main opposition candidates. attacked election headquarters in the capital protesters say the result is being manipulated after the ballot counting. in favor of the current president. it's been four days since the presidential election. these people say they are
12:20 pm
gathering in the capital to defend their vote. we are challenging the results. but the electoral tribunal is corrupt and is defending the interests of the president and betraying the hundred people we won't allow these elections to be stolen like happened in the past. both president. and his t.v. star opponents. claim victory after sunday's election initially the result at first . and then swung towards heaven and this after holed up in the count. remote municipalities that have not been tallied and their votes have not been counted as the victory of our party because rural areas vote in favor of the nationalist party. has one of the highest murder rates in the world and there are fears that the current political crisis will increase the violence that already exists in this central american nation. i don't even want to think about it this
12:21 pm
could get worse than during the two thousand and nine i'm afraid for my children my family and my wife respect the results. of american states managed to have both candidates signed a statement where they vow to respect the final results once the disputed votes are checked. but nothing later rejected the agreement saying the government is trying to. and supporters to take to the streets protesters set up barricades and clash with the police that used tear gas to disperse them. the next president whoever wins is going to be in a weak position because of the thin margin and the suspicion around the election will be accused of winning three four illegitimate. institutions against him. on the road as is already battling poverty and crime political instability. the
12:22 pm
situation here even further. i guess he. hopes have been dashed for the relatives of forty four sailors onboard an argentine submarine which disappeared almost three weeks ago naval commanders have ended the search for the san juan ships and eighteen countries have scoured the south atlantic an explosion was detected me and his sobs last known position after the captain reported a battery short circuit passengers on one of the biggest airlines in the u.s. could be going nowhere for christmas american airlines is scrambling to find pilots will fifteen thousand flights have to manage as promised time off for too many crews they're being enticed to the extra pay to get back on board over the but busy holiday period as well brown's reports. the computer glitch gave so many american airlines pilots time off from work during the christmas season that the pilots union says fifteen thousand scheduled flights have no one to fly them at this point
12:23 pm
it's a waiting game which is really unfortunate for consumers who are just excited to get out of town for the holidays they don't want their vacations to turn her into a nightmare american says it is working to avoid cancellations company says it has reserved pilots to cover some of the flights and is offering pilots who will work on certain routes one and a half times their regular hourly pay but the pilots union says american airlines isn't working with its membership to fix the problem the bottom line is we're not looking at placing blame we're looking at repairing the problem and ensuring that the over fifteen thousand flights that are not manned over the critical last two weeks of december do you have pilots in the cockpit and right now unfortunately there is no dialogue going on between our union and the company american is now advertising for a new director of crew scheduling unless the airline and its pilots can find solutions while they travel may turn to misery for many families this christmas

12:26 pm
are cautiously optimistic saying they hope the president knows what he's doing they know he's a businessman of the people he's put in place to try and work to resuscitate the economy because right now that's what most people want they want jobs this country has an unemployment rate of more than ninety percent. standing on the seas did absolutely nothing hoping for some kind of well here's our frustration and anger in this country so i think while these full mixed feelings about the cabinet. there's still a lot of people who hope that another problem will go up in the form of prison is gone and we now have a new president hoping that he perhaps understands the reality on the ground and they hope that he's the man who will try to turn run the economy so while it's the point about the cabinet some hope that the prison knows what he's doing they hope that he has a plan to resuscitate the economy and they hope that even though you have the same people in cabinet they sound them as nice and easy they hope that these are people

a thing of the past because like you know how they are animal is only from the go a good job last time round and he's back my job they're fine they're financed the finance minister i think is a brilliant appointment actually and i mean this because i always contended that the finance minister in the good ideas is a man is a man i know very well he's a man who will the international community knows him in was not by the. institutions like i am f. he is the one who negotiated the limit arrangements and those were working he made a lot of reforms or proposals which we undermined or really says rescinded by the former president for example he did this troubles with indigenization we always tried to reform he had this problem with a bonus this bonus scheme which he tried to reform again and he had problems there with it with the former president he also tried to get to streamline the civil
12:29 pm
service get rid of some people especially the maybe where he was hard work or start the coming three now because you don't look at zimbabwe as an area exactly exactly that's my point that all these reforms now would not run into a brick or run into a very very tough it light and where does this leave the organisation should government should should we've seen a few opposition faces in their men. where is the unity here if i. if well the unity is among the people not you know not in government oppositions because they think the unity is a unity of purpose everyone working for the. plane the a party for the country if the opposition would only have taken positions in them i would be surprised and i would think that would be a very fatal political mistake because how would they criticize the government in eight months time how would they attack. was a rational prism and was administration in a few months time but now they are the same they are out there they are going to be
12:30 pm
picking holes whatever it is your administration is going to be making and it gives them in some impetus and some political space to to to to be an alternative ok because it's all eyes on the on the coming election right so what do you think we're likely to see the cabinet do in that time. what will become the company just to play it safe in the moment in playing safe means for sleep the people have to get money from their banks when they deposit well they should get it bonuses should be sort of people civil servants should be paid on time. it basically economic stability you know. starting to steam investors being seen to be coming into zimbabwe and you know getting to initiate projects as soon as possible with the not normal to many. of our soldiers are going to have to cut you off there thanks very much for talking to us it's ok thank
