1:01 am
locals plus we all recognize the significance but to be honest right now as i'm talking you i feel nothing but excitement. because there's always the director and the executive producer will take a look at the film taking hollywood by storm. in the authorities are concerned about the outbreak of disease in the southern states of carola following the worst floods in a century the tarantula rains have eased but there are now health fears for more than eight hundred thousand people who are crammed into relief camps in need rescuers are continuing efforts to reach people cut off for days many of them without food and water our correspondent andrew thomas is in chengdu are one of the worst affected areas. people in kara describe the water i noted centimeters. but in debt relative to the baltics ankle deep only
1:02 am
waist deep. some walking club which is to destroy i wrote to. my house and then it went off on my head it ground floor was completely covered. or evacuated first carry for the books the train for them elsewhere the water is shallow enough the trucks to drive in. and found most people want to stay at home in houses with second fools they can stammers guard because tomorrow morning i wake up they're having so much a wide value in my heart also having watched those lysol so afraid. where people remain in their homes food water medicine and toiletries are being carried in the car just simply too strong to promote on a boat like that and hope it ok it will get swept away so they started magically holding on to this rope as they will the boat about an hour and
1:03 am
a half in that direction this is and walking through fast flowing water with debris . hundreds of thousands of people have fled their homes and now in camps statewide an unprecedented relief effort is underway india's military has fifty four helicopters over carola some drop supplies others amounting rescues the weather is improving there was much less rain across carola on sunday than at the end of last week but what is already full is fast flowing dangerous and everywhere this is an ongoing emergency hundreds of us al jazeera carried out. the united states says it is ready to facilitate peace talks between the afghan government and the taliban u.s. secretary of state mike pompei are also welcome the muslim eed holiday season far by president musharraf's ghani earlier that was probably on has yet to respond although unofficial sources say the group is considering taking part in the truce
1:04 am
as follows a week of fighting across afghanistan which saw the taliban launch a massive assault on the provincial capital gardening units a.d.'s in has more for us from kabul. this is not the first time that president musharraf of any announced a cease fire on a religious holiday back in june in either the fifth or the end of ramadan president or any announced a cease fire for three days. taliban accepted the offer and many people here in afghanistan remember when taliban fighters and army soldiers share the same mosques right next to each other and how the treasure it was for many here and it is an inspiration that peace perhaps is. reachable and it's possible in afghanistan however this offer is quite different the duration of the cease fire proposal proposed by president romney is for three months like three
1:05 am
days in a little fitter and also people here believe that the president is trying to reach some sort of agreement with the taliban to secure the country and to provide the necessary conditions to help the election at the end of october and also this this offer and this proposal is different because president rohani said that this cease fire can last as long as taliban onerous and respect the terms of the cease fire of course has yet to deliver its. position on this offer but today they announced a symbolic gesture they said that they were they will release. hundreds of army soldiers held in taliban's custody according to our sources taliban is not a united front on this on this matter some members of the political bureau of the
1:06 am
taliban are with this offer and they think that it is necessary to accept the government offer but some numbers. can be called here in in in kabul as radicals they don't think that this is a good idea. and jowett now there is the director of the british and irish agency's afghanistan group he says it is unlikely the taliban will accept a prolonged cease fire it is a time when the taliban all are gaining ground militarily and different parts of the country and this is also election season so although they might accept a three or four day ceasefire it will be highly surprising if they accept an extended. one so there are reasons for the optimism because the previous cease fire resulted in an overall reduction in violence and created
1:07 am
a breathing space for the civilians who were suffering from unabated filings but they are also reasons for premise pessimism because certain elements and surgeon see elements that are not part of the taliban per se or former taliban members who are now. fighting under the brunt of in the country they continue their attacks on civilian and government targets so although this is going to reduce violence we are yet to see if this is going to result in a complete end of violence or a start of peace talks. brazil's president michel to mare has called an emergency meeting to deal with clashes along its border with venezuela earlier national troops were deployed to the border town proper imo after hundreds of venezuelan migrants were attacked and driven out of makeshift camps allison that i'm p.f.c. has been following developments from colombia's capital boulder to this situation
