a story of hope all group in indonesia is helping working the children recover from months at sea. i'm joined again with your sports we'll hear from manchester city's manager head of the decision on their appeal against a 2 year ban from european football plus now there keeps you venters in front in the race the tally in the title that's coming up in sport. where you can this news all with a u.n. security council decision that could immediately affects more than a 1000000 syrians living in rebel held territory members have agreed on a compromise that will allow only one border with turkey to remain open for a deliveries aid groups say they're deeply concerned over restrictions on the flow of aid the deal was made after russia backed by china pushed to shut down a 2nd crossing across the entire country more than 7000000 people rely on
4:02 pm
humanitarian aid the conflict has led to vast numbers of people living in camps after being forced from their homes. 500000. will wake up tomorrow morning. and realize that we have let them die are going about. are those people who gave the instructions instructions to cut out the april 500000 children. to look into the mirror more. demand for assistance has been rising steadily a record of more than 700 trucks crossed the syrian border in may carrying u.n. aid to the most since the war began and the spread of coronavirus could many things even worse several 100 cases have been detected but aid groups warn this could be much higher since testing is extremely limited. it's not the 1st time the number of aid routes into syria has been cut in 2014 the un security council originally
4:03 pm
authorized aid to flow through 4 border crossings 2 from turkey one from iraq and one from jordan in january this year opposition from russia and china forced the routes through iraq and jordan to be dropped the 2 turkish crossings were allowed to continue for another 6 months now once again at the insistence of russia and china that it's been reduced to a single point above. mark says deputy regional humanitarian coordinator for the syria cross border operation he joins us from guardian tep near the border with syria thank you for your time mark just tell us what is the impact of this going to be. well i think there are 2 things to say the 1st is that earlier this year we were fearing the worst we thought that that it might be no extension of the security council resolution at all and so the 1st thing to say is that it's actually very good news that the security council has recognized
4:04 pm
that there are millions of people in northwest syria who cannot be adequately reached in any other way and the security council has authorized the continuation of the cross border operation for another 12 months so that that's actually very good news we're very pleased and we were as i said very worried earlier in the year that that would not be extended on the other hand we're also concerned because the original security council resolution in 2014 had all arrived for border crossing points earlier this year that was reduced to 2 crossing points and now it's been reduced to only one crossing point now this is happening at a time when the humanitarian crisis in the country has actually got worse we had almost a 1000000 people displaced earlier this year we've got
4:05 pm
a coronavirus in syria we have the 1st few cases of coronavirus in the area just a few days ago so we are very concerned that the amount of access for humanitarian is being reduced at the very time when we actually need more access ok so you say you're happy have got one crossing still working but not happy that the 3 previous they have now closed i mean what will this mean logistically though for getting relief supplies from bubble hala to the areas that were previously served by. well we will still be able to reach all of the people with humanitarian needs in northwest syria it's just going to be a lot more complicated we're going to have to adapt but you know that's what humanitarians do around the world we work in war zones we work in crisis situations we often have to adapt our working mechanisms and we're going to have to do that again now but we will continue to need the support of the security council and of
4:06 pm
all parties to the conflict particularly the the syrian government and the other main armed groups in the country to facilitate access because we still have a huge crisis and now without a crossing point across the border from iraq into northeast syria and without the crossing point into the northern part of the turkish operations area it's going to be a lot more difficult to meet those needs and we're going to have to quickly look at how we can reorganize our work i'm sure will there very busy time for you we just had the 1st case of culls had 19 confirmed. is that a concern for you about the spread of coronavirus and how that might compound the situation. well that's a massive worry because there are so many displaced people now living in overcrowded camps there are about $1000.00 camps in northwest syria most of them in
4:07 pm
the area and once the buyers start spreading in those overcrowded camps camps it can be very difficult to control transmission at the moment it's just 4 cases 3 doctors and a nurse and we are working with the health of the aura teas and the different to humanitarian organizations to enhance the debate and systems the contact tracing a lot of preparedness work has been done to contain an outbreak once it comes to northwest syria but it's a very big risk it could spread very quickly and these are the crowded camps and just finally russia says they can come through damascus or should increasingly becoming through damascus which is why you know it's been advocating for just the one. actually this may never come for just the one cross border. way to get aid into big given the situation on the ground how feasible is it that aid can come
4:08 pm
through damascus well we would like to see baby coming from all directions we would certainly like to see cross-line access from the government controlled areas as well as cross border access and we will work with the or foreign t.v. to try to make this happen but there's still a war going on in the country there's a ceasefire in the northwest at the moment but there's still shelling on some asterix it's still a very tense situation and ultimately it's up to the parties to agree on this cross line access as the united nations we will certainly try to facilitate did we would like to see more cross-line access as well as cross border access thank cuts there deep deputy regional humanitarian coordinator for the syria cross border operation . thank you. and molly prominent a mom has called on protesters to stay home and remain calm that follows
4:09 pm
a series of violent protests against the government in which a number of people have been killed president abraham has promised to form a national years in government and dissolve the constitutional court in a bid to quell the protests shelob ellis reports. in bamako a solemn feel well for protista think i'll see say this is year old was killed on friday his family says he was shot in front of molly's national assembly. his mother was sick already when we broke the news to her she had a seizure the neighbors came out and we comforted her with words from islam. thousands of people gathered for friday's protests the 3rd since. they pushed their way into the grounds of parliament and the national television station then tires and barricaded roads in the capital police responded with tear gas. gunfire was heard 60 people were arrested. the protesters returned on saturday but
4:10 pm

4:11 pm
a national unity government next week they're an important 1st step. and i think the idea is that the president is going to join with the opposition and have hopefully real dialogue. and and hopefully this will take place under the eyes of eco wasse the regional group that i think can actually help make sure that this moves forward smoothly. no opposition had earlier rejected kate his offer to reform the constitutional route and demanded the dissolution of parliament following friday's embraced 3 of their leaders were arrested and they had cooled his rented it's unclear where the president has his concessions will satisfy them and stop the scenes repeating. dallas. let's bring in our interest here is following the story for us from the nigerian capital of op ed how do these promises measure up to what

4:13 pm
the opposition we expect to see more and more people trying to discuss this in the coming days or weeks for now it's difficult to say whether or not they will cede their demands of having brown because getting out of office. the constitutional court has been a target of frustration as it overturned election results but as a sort of hinted at earlier in that report the frustrations have evolved so talk to us about how those frustrations have evolved. well basically it all started during the presidential elections and a lot of members of the opposition and other political parties feel that the constitutional court overreached itself because some of these election results were not supposed to be or sort of counseled and the victory therefore some section of the opposition view the victory of
4:14 pm
a brand new book at quetta as raped and similarly when the elections for parliament were held and then the. constitutional court sort of overturn the results of some of these parliamentary elections and i think that was the last for the opposition to do its ground in amending the sacking of the constitutional court and in fact other section of the opposition demand that the that the government of president ibrahim will become kater leaves office simply because of 3 factors be said of the meddling by the constitutional court or the overturning of the results by the constitutional court is one issue and then you have crisis economic crisis and the violence in the north and central of mali you know that clashes between the dog and the full any ethnic groups in central mali and then the age long violence by extremist groups in the armed groups in the north of mali that has not been that
4:15 pm
that the government has not been able to settle and then the economic concerns that are growing day by day unemployment high prices high commodity prices and all that's the reason why things are getting out of control frustrations are building and a less quick solution is found to this a lot of people fear that it could spiral out of control. thank you that i met interests there across developments in mali from. going to more head on the news all including a higher than expected turnout in hong kong's poll to choose candidates for september's main election. labeled extremists this rap group from the usa that calling for equality and demanding an apology. and in sports why le bron james is too close take part in the n.b.a.'s latest social justice campaign.

4:26 pm
a stark choice for voters in poland one which will shape its identity in europe and the rest of the world. this is the incumbent crowd pleaser. poland's president since 2015 an independent who has the support of the ruling law and justice party is seen as the stall wall of the government's message of nationalism and conservatism has backing of only traditional families and opposition to gay marriage adoption has put about all this with poles and others in the e.u. fear he's taking the backwards but his populist agenda has won over many voters i think. he is a good candidate because he's a tried and true man for 5 years what we know what he has done and who years and i think will be the same as in the previous term or this. under total movie that andrea do what he says he tries to carry out even if not everything can be realized

4:28 pm
by this election if you look at the votes of those who are in the retirement age they overwhelmingly vote for under a do that and these but if you look at the youngest voters very mostly vote for more liberal politicians so it seems that in the next years law and justice would have or would needs to change for politics because otherwise we would lose support this is being seen as one of the most important elections since the fall of communism in 1989 the result of which is likely to see poland loosen all tighten its ties with its neighbors so now you go. time now for weather we have jenny with more the floods in china this is just really an ongoing event isn't it ken we've been talking this for a long time but there's more rain of course in the 4 cards you can see on the satellite a huge swathe of cloud impacts the korean peninsula and of course also impacting japan but have a look at this because you can also see where the ground should be and of course where the river is the flooding is so widespread so very deep this food water
