you know the responsibility for the situation in east rests with those who support the terrorists tunnels like these have been crucial for rebels multiple attempts to storm the eastern front in the past year off numbers and their supplies have been cut off but the rebels say they will not surrender without a fight. or capabilities are weak but god willing we will deal with this the regime will lose again face similar attacks and it didn't fall and now again we will survive the so besieged city and say none of the words from people in power for have done much to protect them. messages for help from easton who have been nonstop street after street bodies and parents have been trying to pull their children out of the rubble the united nation calls it hell on earth for besieged people in eastern. and by the outside world they might as well be living on another
planet. to. tell u.n. headquarters diplomatic editor james space also syrian ambassador about civilian deaths in. do you deny that you are killing civilians at least include not only we are saying that many of these fake in use are staged. by who. by your cousins by you by the terrorists by the syrian moderate opposition. the north korea is sending one of its highest ranking generals to the closing ceremony of the pure on jan winter olympics he is former intelligence chief kim young chong and he's believed to have been the one behind several attacks on south korea president trump is sending his daughter ivanka she'll be leading the u.s. allegation at the ceremony which takes place on sunday so let's go live now to our correspondent his at the one of the winter olympics venue is china occurs when is
natasha going insane or tasha i'm just wondering whether these two interesting leaders a very of these two delegations have any chance of meeting. i think that's going to be a big no in fact this south korean government has said that unlike when u.s. vice president mike pence and the north korean delegation with kim jong un sr were here for the opening ceremony that this time during the closing ceremony the south koreans are going to make attempts to avoid any kind of encounters or awkwardness you mention the general that's leading this eight member north korean delegation he is generating a lot of controversy and martine it's part of a bigger wave of public discontent that we have been seeing and hearing since president moon began pushing an engagement policy with north korea at the beginning of the year this general is a hard liner and as you mentioned he's believed to have been responsible for
attacks against south koreans most notably the sinking of a warship in twenty ten forty six sailors were killed so now the victims' families and many conservatives are pushing back asking why the general would be here during this moment the moon camp is saying that this man is the perfect person to come at this point in time it oversees relations with south korea it is this man does have a say in north korea's nuclear program and it's asking the public to look toward the future to see how this could be again yet another step in the reconsolidation and peace process hope for between the two koreas this would not be the first time that the general has been to south korea he did come in two thousand and fourteen for a military meeting and also today friday we're expecting the latest tranche of of quite hala hitting sanctions from the u.s. imposed on the north. yes and this quite honestly
is not a surprise given the rhetoric that we have been hearing from the trump camp over the last several weeks u.s. vice president mike pence said during his five day swing through asia earlier this month that the toughest round of economic sanctions were yet to come to north korea and this is right before the opening ceremony it might have been why the north koreans scuttled planned but very secretive meeting between pence and kim jong sr and the ceremonial head of state thousand opposed to take place in seoul at the presidential blue house and the north koreans canceled two hours before again there's no expectation that there will be a meeting with the u.s. delegation and north korea this time around but as we look ahead bar teen post olympics there are a couple of lingering questions and neatly this one will president moon take advantage of kim jong un's invite to come to pyongyang and have
a meeting to help the reconsolidation process there's a lot of pressure on moon not to go there's a lot of talk that this charm offensive by the north koreans has been to try to take down the heat on the same sions that it's experiencing and the other issue is how will north korea react if the united states and south korea proceed with a joint military exercise now scheduled for march after the olympics the tasha thank you very much natasha can name that live in china. now escalating violence in central african republic is forcing more and more people out of their homes a number of different armed groups started fighting into a live thirteen the united nations now says that hoff of the four and a half million people in the country now are in desperate need of humanitarian aid catherine sawyer reports from the northern town of brega. mario says she had

teachers in the classroom is a controversy ally dhea being promoted by president donald trump prevent school shootings if you harden the sights you're not going to have this problem because these guys who lack courage will never go into those schools he says he wants to encourage educators to become comfortable with the gun even offering bonuses for those with firearms skills i want my schools protected just like my banks are protected trump made the comments on thursday at another white house listening session following the shootings in parkland florida that left seventeen people dead most of them teenagers. since the school shooting fellow students have made their voices heard and brought pressure to bear on trump and other right of center politicians to tighten gun restrictions arming teachers is not what they have in mind that's their plan anyway mark barden lost his son in two thousand and twelve
