targeted a market that a hospital treating people wounded in the earliest strike. meanwhile russia is hosting a new round of talks in sochi aimed at ending the war the un as they have botched the main syrian opposition group says its boy cautioned the negotiations under president bashar al assad's forces and their russian allies stop the violence and the kurds who control almost twenty percent of syrian territory are also attending the focus of a turkish military operation in a fighting in northern syria ancora says the kurdish fighters are terrorists or stephanie deck of reports now from the town of kiss on the turkish syrian border there's just been incoming from syria into turkey we were actually preparing for a live when we heard a whiz over our heads. and then we saw the smoke landing around five hundred meters from our position well the police have now come to inspect the crater this is
a reminder of course that this is an act of conflict and there are consequences for these border towns these border cities kilis has had rockets and shells land here before also they hardly on the other side of the border but people that residents that we've spoken to here will tell you that they are concerned they're used to it because i still was here just a couple of years ago along the border and there was this kind of tense situation as well but one gentleman we spoke to yesterday said he was worried and he was already military wife and children away you could see people are tense and they want us to move on. now or a challenge as well from sochi with the latest round of talks on sylvia taking place. well the news earlier on monday the another group of opposition figures was going to be staying away from sochi really exposes i think the shortcomings of this congress russia has tried to make this as inclusive as possible inviting people and groups from across the syrian cultural religious and political spectrum so there
are a bathysphere there are these there are sunnis and shias allo whites and various different political platforms including the moscow platform the rest on a platform but there are a few notable exceptions now those are the s.n.c. the syrian negotiation committee which has said that it will stay away from sochi believing that this is undermining the geneva process the kurdish groups such as the why p.g. then not here either they are considered persona non grata by turkey and of essentially being shut out i don't think they want to come anyway because of what's going on in africa and so this all basically steers towards the moscow and damascus perspective on the syrian conflict the upshot of this congress is likely to be the endorsement of the new what they're calling a constitutional committee made up supposedly all of the syrian government on one
side and opposition representatives on the other but if the main groups of the opposition are not here then this allows damascus to essentially say that the opposition groups boycotting so she boycotting this process are saboteur of peace the big question of course is where the u.n. stands on the of this and whether stefan de mistura will approve of these measures and not allow this to filter in to the geneva process the russians believe that he is on board the left is wait to see whether the u.s. that suggest that is confirmed or not. let's move on to other news now and at least thirty six people have been killed an aide and two days of fighting after southern secessionists try to stage a coup the international committee of the red cross posted a video online of the agency's head of mission to aid in explaining the current situation on the ground we are going through
a quite complicated situation since yesterday really. quite a lot of but. maybe where we have a little bit. of our civilization maybe you can descend back out some shootin in the soap is what we are living in the last two days here they would we are. still to get in touch with the parties are batting one to the other and maybe people will see we have one hundred kids and we help people yes yes with this insight we are managing the scene with this gets to the. hospital as well unfortunately this unit is somebody passed the same post. the f.b.i. as deputy director has resigned weeks before his official retirement date the us president has repeatedly criticized andrew mckay accusing him of favoring has a viable hillary clinton during the two thousand and sixteen presidential race when
the caves departure comes as the f.b.i. continues its probe into possible ties between russia and trance campaign alan fischer reports. and ricky has been with the f.b.i. for twenty years but in recent months he's been the target of repeated criticism from president the deputy director played a role in the investigation in hillary clinton's use of a private e-mail server his wife ran for office for the democrats in virginia and received campaign donations from clinton allies for the president that was enough for him to tweet how can the f.b.i. deputy director andrew mccabe the man in charge along with leaking james komi of the phony hillary clinton investigation including her thirty three thousand illegally deleted e-mails be given seven hundred thousand dollars for his wife's campaign by clinton puppets during investigation. when mckibben knows his intention to retire in march the president tweeted again f.b.i. deputy director andrew mccabe is racing the clock to retire with full benefits ninety days to go the white house the night it played any part in his decision to
leave the f.b.i. i can tell you none of this issue is made bad out of the white house any specifics i would refer you to the f.b.i. but keep briefly ran the f.b.i. after the president fired teams combing the washington post reported the president asked him how he voted in the election to keep told him he didn't vote but his departure will risk questions among other f.b.i. agents this is profoundly disturbing it's yet another chip in the edifice of the separation of politics from the rule of law and the independence of the justice department the law enforcement bodies of united states in this instance the f.b.i. intelligence community and frankly american democracy this is been dominating the headlines but washington's attention will soon time to this president's first state of the union speech on tuesday but the ramifications of mccabe's abrupt departure may well rumble on alan fischer washington now the u.s.
has lifted its ban on refugees from eleven what it called high risk countries but says tougher checks will still be enforced u.s. president compliment of the baton told this part of his revised immigration policy applicants from the on named countries will still face tougher so-called risk assessments to be accepted. colombia's government has suspended peace talks with. after a string of bombings killed seven police officers of the weekend or president. has blamed the attacks on police stations in three cities the year long talks were aimed at ending nearly fifty years of violence. reports from. three bombs attacks in less than twenty four hours was interpreted as a clear message from the u.n. about its fate in the peace process in colombia in the aftermath of the country's president juan manuel santos had his own. my patients on the patients of the
colombian people has its limits so i have taken the decision to suspend the start of the fifth cycle of negotiations which was shared world for the coming days until we see coherence between the words and its actions. talks between the government and the active rebel group in colombia have been going for more than a year last october they agreed on a ceasefire but the rebels launched a new offensive when it expired earlier this month the targeted oil pipelines and security forces the bloodiest of the weekend attacks took place in the coastal city of. where five officers were killed. president santos flew there to inspect the aftermath under increasing pressure to end the peace talks for good in the eyes of the taxi indicate the groups to be their ship is divided over the way forward. as an organization where different tendencies converge and are expressed both politically and militarily they also have an historical issue with timing they're
unable to understand when it's the right moment for doing or not doing something this attack happened at the worst possible time public opinion not only rejected them but also close the political space government had to continue negotiation says it's willing to take part in another ceasefire but its attacks will continue until the moment it's agreed upon. the truth is that unlike the successful talks with five gravels who signed the peace deal with the government a year ago the negotiations with a year alone seem increasingly bound for failure living the dream of a colombia completely at peace in its stead troth i listen. to brazil now where more than twenty million people are being vaccinated against yellow fever following an outbreak of the disease a public health emergency has been declared after at least eleven people died in the south eastern state of mina in the last month to as

food and security in mogadishu a severe drought last year meant the could not grow in the crops and they feared for their lives as rival plans for it but there is nobody left in my religion very young people it was too much fighting and we had to leave because there was no food at the peak of last year's dropped more than three million people were in need of urgent humanitarian assistance the united nations says that numbers dropped to but only by half a million the humanitarian needs are still very high and we are still seeing the tradition levels that are amongst the highest in the world so that very much once a continued attention at the same time the progress that we've made shows that we have a much more effective response mechanism in place as compared to twenty eleven when quarter of a million people died. three hundred thousand children under the age of five are malnourished while the effects of the drought in parts of southern somalia
including the capital mogadishu have eased more cisterns is now needed in the north with has been low rainfall and the u.n. says two point seven million people will be in crisis between now and june sense the famine in twenty eleven billions of dollars have been spent on emergency relief but the government says it can no longer rely solely on foreign aid and must wind long term solutions through conflict drought and the displacement of people they'll be in through all national institutions to tackle these challenges but now the government says it's come up with a plan. last year the government open to a department to deal with humanitarian and disaster management and its planning long term investment for development in rural areas usually the worst hit by drought we have the longest. sea caused as well as we have two rivers we have for thailand. and so
a country like somalia. it's something that could have been avoided very long time but because of lack of an institution it's sinister the nineteen since one thousand night on up to now and that is why we have seen these droughts keep coming back. move funding to produce food including in the agricultural and fishery sick does hopes to break the impact of drought and the cycle of suffering but somalia's government says it will take time for me to malone al-jazeera mogadishu. leaders all food on egypt ethiopia have been meeting on the sidelines of an african union summit about ethiopia is that dan project on the nile sudan's foreign minister has told al-jazeera that three countries have agreed to reconcile their differences i can tell you that for now the dispute is over and i hope that this will not be a temporary reserve usually. the two presidents in egypt as
met the president met also with the prime minister individually and then today via lot of the meeting was held issues were discussed in of it through our spirit and for our commander and the city president agree to address the issue of the. more than one hundred migrants we investigate off the coast of libya after they became stranded trying to cross the mediterranean and dangerous conditions and officials from the countries cause cancer the girl was brought to a naval base in tripoli for medical treatment she said they'll make the transfer to a detention center in the city. the strain his treatment of asylum seekers as again in the spotlight this time of the cabinet documents revealing that a top minister tried to stop refugees from starting a new permanent life in the country the papers reveal that in two thousand and thirteen the then immigration minister scott marston asked the country's national
security agency to delay checks on seven hundred asylum seekers he wanted them to miss the deadline for a permanent protection visa that would then only permit them to stay in the country for three as well obey the law i'm a hack as an asylum seeker from afghanistan who went to china in two thousand and thirteen says he lived in fear for three years because he could not get a permanent. i've actually had to restart my life from from scratch so for three years there was there was no life for me it was an absolute freeze. i was scared everybody else was scared they could not speak to media they could not speak about this and we knew quite well what was going on on the ground and often we would see that in local media news that the minister was trying to bring the new law under which. permitted protection visas as well banish will diminish and there
will be only temporary so that a tougher policy and the path of regime is in place. when they did that in two thousand and fifteen they actually backdated the law to two thousand and thirteen so to cover. and i think there was no logic behind this whole thing. aid agencies say there's been a surge in homelessness among refugees in northern greece the country's second largest city of thessaloniki has apparently run out of space to house new arrivals refugees or avoid the greek islands and are instead crossing over the land for deal with turkey they are often forced to pass through the everest's river long sleeve reports from thessaloniki many people believe pakistanis arabian's refugees and so they cannot know what's happening in the border province of blocky stand where these people come from they spoke out against tribal leaders there who want independence and they were threatened with death so they run for it. they crossed the ever us river from turkey into greece walked for five days and added up
sleeping here in. the months the men had to take it in turns to stay awake to protect their wife and sister. i felt like committing suicide i was going mad i thought i should have stayed in my country and let the tribespeople kill me i just wasn't expecting this to toll the bill got frostbite in thick snow on the river border he can no longer bend his fingers but the blame for. any was from me i can't even go to the toll upon myself my brother has to help me there's no way i can work it's really stressful. where they took us to where they've been sleeping we realised we'd been here before in november two thousand and sixteen then it was different people all suffering the same things that winter turned out to be the coldest for decades water froze in the refugee camps greece's lack of preparation was exposed the full year on nothing has changed it's due to the fog that their
fundamental rights are being violently those people don't have a house don't have access to medical care. they say absolutely nothing the baloch family got shelter three months ago through the norwegian refugee council saima is now pregnant but their only guaranteed accommodation for three months more so they could end up back here again before she gives birth. while the greek authorities and charities try to prioritise families single men have no chance one meal a day provided by young european volunteers working off to nations and that's it. there's no doubt the big increase in people crossing the every river into northern greece has simply compounded the homeless problem here and that's the only thing we're told is now completely full there is simply nowhere to put all these people there may be the good news is that the winter so far hasn't been anything like as cold as its terrible conditions this time last year but if it does get worse greece
could have a full blown crisis on its hands. they showed us where they sleep underneath an abandoned half built concrete block if the police catch them here they can go to jail so they dental to even light a fire. presumably when they sleep they dream of nothing because that is exactly what they have for. lawrence lee al-jazeera facility. volkswagen has come under fire from politicians and the public for part funding tests and watch monkeys and him exposed to toxic fumes of a port says a german car make up one of the studies in two thousand and fourteen along with daimler and b.m.w. the german government has called the tests on justifiable. preparing to give his first state of the union address on tuesday one of his biggest campaign promises was to bring back the country's once thriving steel industry which has
seen significant job losses and recent years she has. a pennsylvania with support for strong in the two thousand and sixteen election to see if the president has kept his promise. to. pennsylvania hadn't chosen a republican president since one thousand nine hundred eighty eight but thanks in part to support from rural communities where the steel industry still. flipped the state in twenty six days the collapse of the industry was devastating but u.s. steel is clear plant remains the largest coal plant in the u.s. and the local. explains that it was to safeguard the plant's future but he voted for drop on every president we've taken a hit republican democrat and the trade agreement both parties have to agree to it i wanted something different was clear when he was campaigning to bring back. here because of his stated opposition to trade deals that led to a lot of cheap imported steel and his pledge to investigate whether the u.s.
is reliance on steel imports is a threat to u.s. national security but a decision on that may still be several months away the white house is reported to be split on the issue at the plant and you know all the disappointment not least because while the white house has a tate's steel imports have soared i thought it would have been done in middle summer make a decision but. overseas they know this might become an artist dump and even more with jones didn't vote for trump we were still flatline like donna mean since the election but though he never trusted trump he was willing to retain some hope that hasn't yet been justified i'm not sure that he believes in other than you know money but money for. now for the top slot i see him several times over the last year and all trump has touted his job creation skills only for job losses soon to fall or the most infamous example is
the carrier factory in indiana kerry will never leave but since then hundreds of workers have quietly been laid off from the plant as jobs moved elsewhere one of the grand scheme is the president of the clinton branch of the united steelworkers who seems to be his nature you know saying exactly the way. there's still hope in the valley but having been failed by both the democrats and republicans in the past if trump's words turn out to be empty they say it's nothing new but you have to remember one thing we've been promised a lot of things you know through with the. pledge to revitalize communities here in the valley with ambitious plans to refashion them as hubs for twenty first century jobs but by pledging to return them to a heyday not seen for seventy years for many here it was worth a try however improbable. pennsylvania.
again in. the headlines on al jazeera syrian warplanes have killed at least twenty people during an offensive on the vessel help province of idlib monitor say the jets targeted a market and then a hospital full of people wounded in the strike comes as russia is hosting a new round of talks and the main syrian opposition group says it will boycott the negotiations the f.b.i. as deputy director has resigned weeks before has official retirement date the u.s. president has repeatedly criticized andrew mckay for political bias donald trump has accused mccabe of favor and has viable hillary clinton during the two thousand and sixteen presidential race mccain's resignation. after u.s. media reported that the president wanted him gone but the white house denies any involvement. we've seen the numerous ports as all of you have and any specifics i can tell you none of this decision was made by that of the white house
in any specifics i would refer you to the f.b.i. president wasn't part of this is making process and we would refer you to the f.b.i. where christopher ray serves as the director which as i said last week and i'll repeat again today the president has full confidence in him and has put the decisions at the f.b.i. in his hands yet on peace talks between the colombian government and rebels have been cold office off to a series of bombings over the weekend president on the us has blamed moxon's rebels for the attacks on police stations and three cities of the government has agreed to hold a referendum in may on liberalizing abortion it's got a bad in all cases except where there is a specific threat to the mother's life due to her pregnancy. documents from australia's cabinet show that a top minister trying to stop hundreds of refugees from starting a new and permanent life in the country the papers for
a deal that in two thousand and thirteen be banned and the question is to scott moss and the country's national security agency to delay checks on seven hundred asylum seekers he wanted them to miss the deadline for a permanent protection visa that would then only limit them to stay in the country for three years those are the headlines on al-jazeera what this is coming up next on counting the cost the problem with every year the rich and famous discussed making the world a better place but but who are afoot to open up and travel across the african continent plus the link between seafood for many but in time i'm counting the cost at this time on al-jazeera.
