6:14 pm
us up to date with the latest on the offensive to take what's happening with the fighting on the ground. well let me bring you up to date with the absolute latest what we've heard in the last hour is that the. folks to the reuters news agency saying that he was very confident the rest of the civilians were going to leave by the end however in the last hour he's clarified that statement and says that all no civilians are going to be leaving. on thursday now we don't know why that is why this sudden change of heart from the syrian democratic forces it was quite a strong statement thursday morning but what i can tell you is that the fighting is has come to a lull because of these civilians stuck in the area the s.d.f. haven't managed to go in to the village itself the villages completely destroyed eisel fighters are in tunnels allegedly underneath that village and there is
6:15 pm
a lot of civilians who are in tents on the outskirts of the village but they can find. billions to about a square mile if you think about that given that they had almost a third of iraq in two thousand and fourteen and huge swathes of syrian territory this last square miles is proving to be problematic we keep hearing from the forces over the last few days yes the battle is going to come to an end we will be victorious it's going to come to an end but clearly are trying to stop civilians from leaving they are using them as human shields according to the u.n. and yes the f.-i to this last square miles is becoming incredibly problematic for the syrians and the consequences and when i guess it's quite difficult to ascertain just how many civilians are still trapped. well the very beginning of the operation we heard that the number of six thousand men that was reducing and reducing down yesterday on wednesday we had two thousand people have left on
6:16 pm
a number of trucks we still don't know how they managed to get to the trucks with what do or how the miners to get. keeping that calls quite close to so that we don't know how many civilians are actually left and clearly it's a very significant number otherwise you. would have gone in already. thank you. well as we mentioned the iraqi military is on high alert fighters attempt to flee across the border there are concerns that members could try and regroup in areas once controlled by eisel in north and west iraq. that has more now from mosul. iraq he forces far more to my sole targets across the syrian border the village above guus the last i still controlled territory in syria isn't far from here the mainly kurdish u.s. backed syrian democratic forces or s.d.f. estimate there are around three hundred on still fight is still inside the iraqi
6:17 pm
military and pro iran armed groups are determined to stop them escaping across into iraq. they've set up cameras around ten kilometers inside syrian territory to monitor eisel fighters as the s.d.f. offensive goes on while the iraqi military operation against eisel across the border in syria continue we on this side are fortifying our positions we have installed thermal surveillance cameras across the border inside syria territory there is joint cooperation with us the pro iran armed groups and the tribal sheikhs we are getting aerial support from the u.s. led coalition u.s. intelligence says eisel evolved from the last remnants of al qaida in iraq and by two thousand and fifteen it controlled around ninety thousand kilometers of territory across syria and iraq an international coalition of more than seventy countries has been involved in the fight to reclaim that territory. this is all
6:18 pm
that remains of the square more than four. he declared himself. what he described as the caliphate that was fighting continues on the syrian side of the border against the last. fight is there a. sleeper cells among iraqis living close by. these are iraqi military checkpoints around the town of heat in western anbar province. weisel was defeated here in two thousand and fifteen but sleeper cells have kidnapped and murdered a number of people in recent weeks. and his wife son sit with their grandchildren at the home they both suffered under the brutality of isis rule and are terrified by the thought the group could ever one day return. to more s.d.f. in syria have pushed toward the border the more difficult it is become for iraqis
6:19 pm
to work in the countryside nearby there i saw in the desert around here it's terrible that i kidnap innocent people the government and the army need to thoroughly search this area because i still are still hiding here the people here have suffered so much on their i celebrity. the head of iraq's intelligence says eisel fight is a regrouping and recruiting mainly in the rural areas of north and west in iraq they want controlled u.s. military intelligence believes the territorial battle against eisel across syria and iraq has been won but the fights against small groups of fighters and sympathizers across this vast region will go on. mosul. a u.s. born woman who traveled to syria to join iceland twenty fourteen has been barred from returning to america who says she made a mistake and wants to return with her eighteen month old son but u.s. secretary of state mike pompei o says the twenty four year old has no legal basis to claim citizenship he did not explain why with on is not considered a u.s.
6:20 pm
citizen and lawyer says she was born in new jersey and holds about a possible. she's absolutely an american national she's absolutely an american citizen she was born in the united states in new jersey and she did not do anything to renounce her citizenship and all she's asking right now is for due process the president of the united states does not have the authority to strip citizenship from those born on u.s. soil and she's willing to pay whatever debts she has to society she's not asking for a free pass we were you know on behalf of her family we were the ones who contacted the f.b.i. when we first learned that without went to syria this is something that we absolutely condemn in the strongest of terms and the families always wanted her to come back and to face the legal system that we all believe in and now she's willing to do that and the government and i think it's missing out on a tremendous opportunity to one gain intelligence from her and to really be able to utilize her as a strong voice against monstrous groups like isis that are brainwashed many
6:21 pm
individuals and manipulated them to do horrible things and i think somebody like remounting isis speaking out against them at great risk to her personal life is a sign a victory for the u.s. . so to come here on the news hour including how not to young to run find out how social media is getting the nigerian youth to vote for change plus. it's compact and perfectly portable. but when the device opens up your world just to it's called. dollars plus. to even make it to the. story. of a seventy people have been killed in a large fire that ripped through several buildings in the bangladeshi capital dhaka the blaze broke out in the congested old city in a multi-story residential complex which also housed
6:22 pm
a chemical warehouse. fire and dhaka struggle to bring the inferno under control battling a wall of flames amid the chaos of crowded alleyways i the blaze broke out late on wednesday evening in the area capital and in the crammed. it quickly spread to surrounding buildings by plastics and chemical warehouses. witnesses told local media that gas cylinders in the buildings exploded one after another. and vehicles gridlocked in nearby streets in the flames. i saw with my own eyes that a sudden massive bang with fire and shockwave totally destroyed the road i was on a rickshaw when the explosion took place i don't think my rickshaw driver is a log anymore. this mangled wreckage is all that's left now as
6:23 pm
emergency workers com the rubble for bodies they don't expect to find any more survivors. in the hospital nearby. families crowd around lists of the living and they did it's a saying that's been repeated far too often in bangladesh where large building fires a comment that has a hole in force regulations. hundreds have been killed in recent years this latest fire only adding to that tally. on al-jazeera. now the head of the roman catholic church says the wounds left by decades of sexual abuse by priests needs to be healed francis has been speaking at a meeting of bishops to address the scandal and calls a concrete and affective measures many of those abused by priests around the world are also attending the four day event at that city.
6:24 pm
basing the plague of sexual abuse by the church's men against minors i thought to consult you because all together we should hear the holy spirit and listen to the cry of the young who want justice the way to pass through an ecclesiastical sponsibility which forces us to discuss this together is a burden on our meeting about how to face this evil which afflicts the church and the whole of humanity the holy people of god are watching us and wait not just for simple and expect a conviction but concrete and effective measures where one of the cardinals attending the conference was reduced to tears while making a keynote speech the wounds of the recession carried the memory of suffering but they also carry. us. if we want to be agents of healing let us not reject the sea that is part of the thinking that refuses to see
6:25 pm
the watch of. which our. people. the scandal to be strong in faith this moment. in the joins us live now from vatican city rory so how significant is this summit and what's the pope hoping to get out of that. well i think the pope is very aware the this is a moment of crisis for the catholic church and something has to be done as we are looking for concrete action to come out of this summit why he's gathered all of these senior clarity here is to impress on them i think the severity of the suffering that survivors of sexual abuse in the catholic church have gone through and also to tell them that it is a collective responsibility of the catholic church to do something about it. of
6:26 pm
course the the survivors would like to see concrete action coming out of this too they are talking about zero tolerance for priests who have abused children and zero tolerance for those who cover it up as well and i can introduce you to one of those survivors now this is leona huggins canadian who was abused as a teenager go that's right and canada. a survivor but also you say you're a truth teller as well can you explain why you use this kind of language when my abuse happened to me years ago it doesn't define who i am i've survived my abuse i'm here to tell my story today and i'm here to tell the truth that happened to me and the truth of what i've experienced in the church and the truth of the stories of other survivors so i see myself as a truth teller so what you've heard so far coming out of this meeting has it
6:27 pm
impressed you has it disappointed you how are you feeling. it it's i'm feeling skeptically optimistic and i was in a fortunate to be involved in the meeting of survivors yesterday with the organizing committee and i we had the chance to tell our story so i now know that we have left our truth on the table as survivors twelve of us spoke representing survivors from around the world the there's no reason that the whole story shouldn't be known to the men in that room but you were hoping to speak to the pope yesterday when absolutely the pope called the summit there he's the head of this church in that meeting yesterday when we asked for a specific request that cardinals are bishops. rich check to shoulders and said but i am not the pope and that's why we wanted the pope in that room because then the pope could answer whether or not on monday morning we would
6:28 pm
have a credible credible action plan for it so. looking ahead to monday morning when you have the day off to this this summit finishes what would satisfy you what coming out of this would be acceptable for you and other survivors some very direct action related to zero tolerance and zero tolerance means zero tolerance of any clergy that. that committed the crime and that means defrocking them lay outside of taking away their license to practice and zero tolerance of any clergy who covered up those crimes and that means removing their clerical them from the clerical state as well so on monday morning he has an opportunity one of the survivors in the group said there are five bishops there on the stand in pennsylvania who stated that they actively covered up crimes and so for him to on monday morning to show up and say remove those five bishops from the clerical state would be a beginning of direct concrete action and it would send a strong signal to the bishops who are returning to their diocese that they do
6:29 pm
stock they have to open up the files they have to be transparent and do you think you're going to get them as i said if we don't get that there's a big problem i have to believe that we're going to get that thank you very much it's totally and i can see so you have forty summits it will finish on sunday and after that there isn't expected to be any kind of final declaration but going into the next day of negotiations next stage of meetings what the catholic church is trying to do is come up with an action plan that can hopefully finally sort out this problem that has been such an enduring crisis for the catholic church or a direct challenge in fact to consider your own thinking on this about one of the top stories the deadly blaze in the bangladeshi capital which is killed in a seventy people turned their child he joins us live now from dhaka so tom there what more facts are emerging about the fire and the latest details on casualties.
6:30 pm
ok rescue operation has long been over actually called off by the mayor of sadhaka we are in the dock medical college hospital in the morgue it's a very tragic scene out here we saw many people actually carried their loved ones in their coffin i spoke to is here police officer in charge who is supposed to identify and process this they were able to identify thirty seven bodies many other bodies might need even d.n.a. testing but a lot of relatives are waiting here they want to know and see if their loved one is among the dead bodies that is in the morgue very really tragic scene. as far as the government goes the industry minister made a statement saying that because of the explosion was not a chemical weapon rather that gas cylinder the bang of the human rights commission
6:31 pm
made a statement and charming this is the third largest disaster in bangladesh which is quite dramatic actually after a round of applause and other chemical explosion near this one and today's one would be trying the third largest now as far. in the medical lot of the forty one patients there in the burn unit when i love to get in there we don't know their real condition we heard that several of them are critically injured and their relatives are also waiting to find out their condition as far as rescue operation. mission that is over that area has been resting except for the people who are staying there because some of the buildings that are damaged are still very vulnerable and could actually even. asked for a population we talked to in the neighborhood that told us they're very concerned about this issue is about. you know
6:32 pm
a cottage in dust. within the living quarters of the old city a part of that actually economic as well but it's been almost five years since the last disaster there hasn't been much of an enforcement a continuous potential of more danger like there's still exists. the population themselves are very aware of the situation as well as there's a more enforcement by the authorities which seems to be quite relaxed saying the situation right now there. thank you. pro catalan independence protesters have blocked a motorway in northwestern spain they placed burning tires on the road connecting the city of boss alone a spot of a general strike against the ongoing trial of cattle and separatists a doesn't form a local government officials are facing up to twenty five years in jail for their role in a failed twenty seventeen independence the european commission president says he's not very optimistic about britain's chances of leaving the european union without
6:33 pm
with a deal his comments follow a meeting with british prime minister to reason why on a wednesday he also wanted a favor to agree on the only briggs it because you guys due to leave on march twenty ninth. if no deal even though they would but can't exclude this we have terrible economic and social cultural bridge building with and on the continent show my thoughts. or yearning to know. the worst can be avoided but look in this city is a group of french lawmakers proposed a bill that would make them to zionism a criminal offense in the same way that anti-semitism is illegal in france but critics argue that opposition to the israeli government is not comparable to anti semitism speaking at an event organized by the jewish community president emanuel macross said legislation to fight hate speech on the internet will be introduced in
6:34 pm
may it comes a day after thousands of people rallied across parts to denounce hostility towards jews has more now in the french capital. the french president emmanuel macron was saying that anti semitism has now reached its worst levels since the second world war figures published for last year show the number of anti-semitic attacks and risen by seventy four percent now france has the biggest jewish community in europe of course and he was speaking to community leaders at an annual dinner he promised a new legislation to ban hate speech on the internet he also asked his interior minister to take action to ban extreme right wing groups who are promoting and fueling violence and discrimination but perhaps the most significant thing is that he said that he would now consider taking action to make auntie's zionism part of
6:35 pm
anti semitism legislation we don't know exactly what form or shape that will take or when it will take place but of course the zionist movement was the political movement that established israel israel as the homeland for jews in palestine now this is a very controversial measure.
