blindfolding the time for them to regain control of their lives is when the boys returned prison life finding out. 'd more than a 1000000 syrians are left to rely on a single border crossing for food medicine and other aid after a bitterly fought compromise at the u.n. . but again on canal santa maria here in doha with the world news from al jazeera more deaths have been reported in mali's protests now the president is promising big changes to the government it's. also how counterfeit cash printed in russia is making its way around libya and funding the offensives of war khalifa haftar.
and labelled extremists but this rap group in the u.s. say they're calling for equality and demanding an apology. so a single decision at the u.n. security council could immediately affect more than a 1000000 syrians living in rebel held territory you are members agreed on a compromise it allows just one border crossing with turkey to remain open for humanitarian deliveries it was a deal made after russia backed by china pushed to close off the other crossing their argument is the age should be limited because it's not being done in cooperation with the syrian government the concern for the aid groups that was a bottleneck that the i just want to get through in fact all across syria more than 11000000 people rely on humanitarian aid including vast numbers living in camps the german ambassador to the u.n. did not hold back with his criticism. these 500000 children will
wake up tomorrow morning and realize that we have to tell them that the german ambassador asked those people who gave the instructions to give instructions to cut out the 8 or 500000 children they are ready to look into tomorrow compounding the situation is the demand for assistance which has only been rising more than 1700 trucks cross the syrian border in may which is the highest number since the war began and the spread of coronaviruses threaten to make things even worse several 100 cases have been detected but it is likely to be many more given the testing is so limited and historically speaking this isn't the 1st time either that the number of aid groups into syria has been cut this is 2014 when the security council originally authorized a they said 4 border crossings 2 in turkey one in iraq one in jordan in january of this year it was that opposition from russia and china which forced the routes from
iraq in jordan to be dropped so it was just the 2 turkish crossings left they continued for another 6 months and now once again at the insistence of russia and china that has been reduced to a single point. mark cuts deputy regional humanitarian coordinator for the syria cross border operation he told us earlier they need more crossings now than ever before. 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 a coronavirus in the area we had 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 aid is being reduced at the very time when we actually need more access 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 are working in isms 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 all parties to the conflict particularly 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 to mali now where president held for antigovernment protesters killed in the capital bamako

promised to dissolve the court at the heart of the disputed election results hold re-elections in contested areas and form 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. the dallas al-jazeera. to libya where images on

image that many health experts have been hoping and waiting for the u.s. president sending a message to his supporters that it's ok to wear a mask for many not doing so is a kind of political statement but before leaving for visit to this military hospital he sent a different message with his words when your hospital especially at that particular setting where you're going to do a lot of older people that in some cases just got off the operating table i think it's a great big deal where you got to have a pretty good bet but i do believe that by the time and. far from the universal endorsement that might make his supporters change their habits in many of the states hardest hit masks are not mandatory and the numbers of people being tested for and dying from the coronavirus are climbing quickly in florida another day of record cases but despite the figures disney world reopened there with restrictions
on smaller crowds masks are mandated inside the park but not in this state and the republican governor is not promising any changes soon we really believe that you know those in that 65 enough age group are at the increased risk and we're continuing to advise them to talk to let me close contact outside the home and to avoid crowds armies which as much as possible in another hard hit state louisiana the democratic governor has closed bars and mandated mess so it's become clear to me especially ash after the numbers that we saw yesterday that our current restrictions are not enough the people that we've been making to the people of louisiana to do better abiding by those restrictions and doing better by complying with our mitigation measures just have not produced the results that we had hoped for and the the results that we need pretty much across the board the experts all agree the easier. the cheapest way to make sure the virus doesn't spread out of
